Thoughts on peace during a pandemic pt. 2

To accept the current state of things, whatever that may be. Perhaps this is the solution. A way to bring about peace.

If we are at home, confined to the couch due to a deadly disease in our midst, let it be so. How have we always wanted to spend such a luxury of time? Hurry before it’s gone. Put down the distraction. Begin now.

If we are at work, be there fully. Give our all into whatever contribution we are making to the world in this moment.

If we are alone, so be it.

If we are in a room filled to the brim with people, connect and create space for yourself. Remember what we all want. Love.

If we are sick, breathe the air into our lungs.

If we are healthy, breathe the air into our lungs.

All is temporary. Rather than want what will be later. Rather than linger over what was; what could have been if only you had the time. Want what you want now.
