We live in a time of uncertainty; our world seems to be spiraling down into an ill-fated abyss, created by the inhuman, materialistic and predatory ways of modern society. With an ever-increasing greed for money and perpetual lust for the mundane, mankind forces itself onto the designs of Mother Nature and does not care to think of the consequences other than those immediate.
However, Mother Nature can only take so much – she is angry, saddened, and hurt, so her response comes as in the form of an Agent – a minuscule being that throws humanity into the fight of a century, in hopes it may bring some sort of restoration to the human soul. If the story sounds awfully familiar, it is because it is none other than the tale of how Covid-19 happened and its consequences.
Mother Nature and the Agent is the third book by author Alice Weil, who knows how to tackle delicate themes, as seen in her other works. Here, Weil uses accessible wording, colorful visuals and illustrations to document what happened to us all, why it happened as such and where we could be headed. It will certainly be a book to be read for many years by teens who were too young or weren’t just born at when the dreadful sickness affected our world. But the author goes beyond: with her background on the spirit through Indian teachings, she believes there is a message we can all learn from the whole experience: one that brings us to reflect on our Dharma and our relationship with the prana, the life force that permeates all, and to which we must always be attuned to, in harmonic balance.
