      I truly embrace this way of life and practice it. I know the power and stability it brings. However, I am very compassionate to those who find this as new information and have lost their jobs and have young kids at home. This is an unprecedented time for us - with much uncertainty. Having acknowledged that, it is important to realize that change is certain and that it’s wise to learn skills to befriend it. Living in fear is hell. So I would hope that people would be willing, at some point, to try simple practices to deal with uncertainty like deep breathing, meditation, EFT (tapping) - all available for free on line. And can be done in as little as 5 minutes to start. Build from there. This is life and life will always be unpredictable. Because this is so important in life, I think we should be teaching these skills in grammar school - make it fun, easy and normal.

      “All negativity is caused by an accumulation of psychological time and denial of the present. Unease, anxiety, tension, stress, worry — all forms of fear — are caused by too much future, and not enough presence. Guilt, regret, resentment, grievances, sadness, bitterness, and all forms of non-forgiveness are caused by too much past, and not enough presence.”
