The Advice Jesus, Buddha, Rumi, Epictetus, Lao Tzu, and Alexander the Great Could Have Given Us During this Coronavirus Pandemic

During pandemics or disasters, people always invite the great to advise them because they believe these individuals are highly intelligent. In this article, I’ll share with you the advice great people particularly Jesus, Buddha, Rumi, Epictetus, Lao Tzu, and Alexander the Great could have given us during these hard times.

  • Jesus Christ

Matthew 6: 27 – ‘Can any of you by worrying add a single moment to your lifespan?’

Matthew 6:34 – ‘Do not worry about tomorrow; tomorrow will take care of itself.’

  • Buddha

‘Do not dream of the future, concentrate the mind on the present moment.’

‘Even death is not to be feared by one who has lived wisely.’

‘Nothing can harm you as much as your thoughts unguarded.’

‘Nothing is forever except change.’

  • Jalal ad-Din Muhammad Rumi

‘Sorrow prepares you for joy.’

‘When the world pushes you to your knees, you’re in a perfect position to pray.’

‘Live life as if everything is rigged in your favor.’

  • Epictetus

‘It is not death or pain that is to be feared, but the fear of pain or death.’

‘The greater the difficulty, the more glory in surmounting it.’

‘Men are disturbed, not by things, but by the principles and notions which they form concerning things.’

‘Difficulty shows what men are.’

‘Every difficulty in life presents us with an opportunity to turn inward and to invoke our own inner resources. The trails we endure can and should introduce us to our strengths. Prudent people look beyond the incident and seek to form the habit of putting it to good use.’

‘Don’t hope that events will turn out the way you want, welcome events in whichever way they happen: this is the path to peace.’

  • Lao Tzu

‘Stop thinking and end your problems.’

‘Life is a series of natural and spontaneous changes. Don’t resist them – that only creates sorrow. Let reality be reality. Let things flow naturally forward in whatever way they like.’

‘Life and death are one thread, the same line viewed from different sides.’

‘If you are depressed, you are living in the past. If you are anxious, you are living in the future.’

  • Alexander the Great

‘Through every generation of the human race, there has been a constant war, a war with fear. Those who have the courage to conquer it are made free and those who are conquered by it are made to suffer until they have the courage to defeat it, or death takes them.’

‘Each moment free from fear makes a man immortal.’

‘Upon the conduct of each determines the fate of all.’
