Calm mind brings inner strength and self-confidence, so that's very important for good health. - Dalai Lama
Calming Light of Acceptance
How should we react in the unknown?
How do we take care of ourselves and others during the unknown?
How can we respond calmly to others who are panicking or overwhelmed?
The recent closings, cancellations and postponements from the coronavirus are having us all experience different responses and emotions.
Today. tomorrow and in the coming days we will each have to choose how we will respond to ourselves and to others as we assess the circumstances we face and identify solutions in a flexible and supportive way.
Maybe in moments when we believe someone is overreacting we need to reach out and respond calmly, it might be exactly what they need. When we are experiencing a reversed scenario they might be exactly what we need in a moment of the unknown.
Perhaps with calm acceptance of the unknown we can support each other’s wellbeing and encourage one another to take care of ourselves and each other. This may help as we work through challenging times experiencing the unknown.
I bring this light hearted message to remind us all that we will experience the impact of the coronavirus in similar and varying ways.
I wish for all of us the ability to calmly accept any uncertainty as we work together to find solutions.
We will have opportunities to work together to solve problems as we journey through the next few weeks, months...
Different scenarios will bring different reactions. We each will have a choice for how we respond.
How we choose to respond to one another could be exactly what is needed or not needed right now.
Let’s be patient, trusting, and caring as we exude a calming light of acceptance and seek options in our current situation, while supporting each other’s wellbeing.
