Sadly I do have covid and underlying health issues. Only Krishna knows best. But still I wonder how you all deal with covid if you are unshure. I am not afraid of death as for you are not this body you are the soul, just the ignorance tought it might be painfull if death would comes near. No not al with covid leaves their body, some are okay, others are longcovid or other difficulties. How a krishna counsiousness person would deal with a come? If that happens and if it is for a long time is there palliative sedation or let the body just lay down until death, wich could end up years and years like that? To be honest, if I get in coma and not able to chant or do service, please suïcide/palliative sedation or just kill me would be fine. As for you always make progress in bhakti during this body, it will transfer to a newly body. Not necsecery a human being. Loads of purana stories tells us, krishna conciousness never ever fades. His devotes He always saves. Even if it means a small portion in a body not fit to get much progress, but than again on Krishna's miracle ways beget a human body after that or more lives. There is no rush, for the soul is eterna, a lifetime is just a blink of an eye! Why People even devotees are so axious about it? Hell or non human spieces are just nothing to a devotee! In the scriptures even do a little effort of bhakti, one get's big results! The books yell at us, but we all yell back that it is impossible and curcumstances... yeah right! Krishna over and over comes to tell us we are all wrong, and we not get it. The soul is forever, the body just to gain bhakti and learn how to get closer to Krishna, that's all. No matter wich body you are in. That is why I give animals maha prasadam where and whenever I can and water care for plants and such. Cuz you can be that animal or plant who did in previous life a so called misstap and by the mercy of Krishna due a devotee get mahaprasadam or mahamantra or darshan of Krishna's many forms! JAYA!
So again how would you stand in my shoes if could choose between coma for years (if it goes wrong) or quikly get another body to preform my duty again, not necsecery a human being. Even a flower to serve in a mala for Krishna or veggie or even fruit or wood to buid a temple or Ratha Yatra chariot! So many ways to help Krishna, why humans are so stressed out? No flowers, no mala's no food, no bhoga, no wood, no means of construction etc.! I for one almost think it is kinda egoïstic almost to stay in human lifeform. Humans who are non devotees do destry the earth as it is. That's kali yuga! But how about be a Tulasi plant or Holy fig tree,... you end up helping tons of devotees! Just think about this! How many years an animal lives? How many years a plant/tree lives? How long is a Kalpa? Well the soul lives eternal so what gives!
Thank you for reading this perhaps disturbing post of me again. I just like to see what other devotees think of Krishna and it's relationship, how they all deal with.How far are you in bhakti, could you offer your body fully, surrender to Him, or you like to save your body as it is and be n coma for several years, not able to chant or render service?!
