We are taught that our purpose in life is to connect to Hashem and to create a world where Hashem is One and His Name is One. Since weâ€™re spending more time alone, perhaps we can work on connecting to Hashem, so we can get Beyond Corona.
One way to connect to Hashem is to think about Him. The first constant mitzvah is â€œTo believe that there is one G-d in the world that caused all that exists to be soâ€. When we read about Corona, if we add the thought that Corona and everything in the world comes from Hashem, we have performed a mitzvah and strengthened our connection to Hashem. When we try to put this into practice we will see that it is difficult, because the distraction of reading makes it difficult to think about Hashem.
Perhaps it will be easier to think about Hashem when we say His name in davening and Brachos. The Shulchan Aruch says that when mentioning the name Hashem, we should concentrate on the meaning of how it is read (Adon*i): that He is the Master of all. We should also concentrate on the Yud-Kei-Vav-Kei spelling: that He was, He is, and He always will be. This is also difficult, because we are not in the habit of concentrating when we pray. So perhaps we can try to put this in practice during the Shema and the first Brocha of Shemoneh Esrai.
If many of us try and think about Hashemâ€™s name when we say the Shema and the first Brocha of Shemoneh Esrai, then we will have taken a tremendous first step in getting Beyond Corona.
