Isolation & Isolation
One of the most difficult things in my life, has been the act of sitting alone with myself and my thoughts. I think that the current pandemic of Covid-19 has everyone re-evaluating things in their life since everything we know has been systematically turned upside down.
I read an article last night that says westerners actually spend more time socializing than a lot of other counties. I don't know if this is actually true, I spend most of my time alone. I have been taught this in the Buddhist practice. It relates to my recovery journey in regard to how one takes care of themselves after rehab. Now, more than ever I've gone into survival mode, the purest ideal of, "One day at a time", has never been more prevalent in my life.
No doubt that things are going to get worse, but we cannot let the fear rule and cloud our thoughts and judgements.
Social media is covered with those pointing fingers, and not willing to discuss anything other than whose fault it was. I think everyone in government ought to be subject to some kind of training such as this. It's impossible to enlighten others. It's a road you travel alone, and find yourself. Only then can the barriers of all of my fears be destructed and you are FREE.
I guess the moral of the story, is good to be good to one another.
