Dear Instructors

I must begin by admitting I am not as advanced nor well-versed in the teachings as many students here. I apologise in advance if I seem naive, uneducated and the like when it comes to the teachings, but I am trying and have been for some time.

A great obstacle is facing me right now given the pandemic and mandating of COVID19 vaccinations in Australia. They have mandated vaccinations to be able to work, amongst other things, and if I choose not to receive it I know I will induce more suffering for myself and my family as I will not be able to earn to provide for our physical bodies. There is a deadline soon approaching to receive it or be unemployed. Repeated vaccines are also coming, with sickness and death increasingly likely with each injection.
If I receive it, I fear sickness and death (not in themselves, but the fact that my work to achieve divinity will come to and end) - how may I further develop consciousness if I become sick or even pass away from the side effects? How may I continue trying if I cannot provide food nor shelter for myself and my family? I do not want to fail in my attempts of achieving divinity solely to abide by the current social laws imposed. I know our true purpose is to rid ourselves of ego, destroy the mind's hold on the soul and achieve divinity, but the physical world at this very moment in time has shackled me and my family in ways that seem as though I will suffer either way.

Samael Aun Weor I believe mentioned that if it is necessary, then it is reasonable. Is this an incorrect interpretation? Even as I physically type this I fear the physical and mind consequences - if the mind becomes too powerful given the supposed effects of the vaccine, it will be difficult to control. Am I incorrect?

I have seeked guidance via prayer and meditation, with my dreams being quite cryptic as I understand my current state of being won't be able to fully understand if things were communicated in their true sense.

I really need some help, I find my mind is not clear until I recognise the thoughts and purposefully silence them, but even then I do not know which path to take.

Be patient, because grasping at, striving for, or desiring an answer will muddle your mind. The solutions arise when you stop thinking of them, when we cease worrying about problems, but learn to be watchful, alert, attentive, and aware within a meditative state.

Thank you Almustafa,

I have read through each thread that mentions COVID & vaccination but am still unsure as to what to do. I have been engaging in prayer meditation each day for 2 weeks now and still don't have a clear direction. I feel this may be because I am not yet at the level of Being able to understand through meditation.

Do you have any suggestions?

Thank you again.
