You cannot suffer
the past or future because
they do not exist.
What you are suffering
is your memory
and your imagination.
Being at home during this pandemic can be difficult for some people since life has slowed down (partly to a screaming halt), so there’s not a lot to do to keep our minds off of what we’d been avoiding. It’s not as easy to bypass those memories or future worries that we can’t seem to process to completion. So they perseverate and continue to loop and repeat if we let them.
I like this quote from Sadhguru because it’s simple to understand and breaks down the thoughts in an easy way for me.
Am I going to let memory or my imagination run my life in negative ways?
No, I do not choose that anymore. What I choose is The Presents of Presence! Being in the moment with my family. Staying centered in my thoughts and staying prepared for what we need.
I hope that you and yours are staying healthy and safe during these uncertain times. May you stay blessed and at home. Keep shining your heartlights because we need to stay connected.
