COVID-19 virus crisis: thinking to much is damaging



Worry, doubt, fear, anxiety or calm can rule our life.

We control only a few things, one is where we place our attention.

In the middle of this pandemic, where we place our attention, decides if we panic, suffer or keep a healthy perspective.

Getting lost in thought, worry, doubt, fear or panic elevates the dire nature of life.

Remember life is a journey, not a destination, death is always our final act.

Our goal is to live life happily until we die.

If my time to die is coming soon, then I want to live fully and die a good death.

We can always let the noise go, then let our senses take over.

Observe nature, see the trees, flowers, weeds, sky and dirt.

Smell the aromas, feel the texture, be alive, be present, be centered.

Let the agitation, the body sensation, the fearful thought and emotions dissipate.

Negative emotion needs our attention to survive.

Observing life is so simple we overlook its power.

A thought: we can find happiness in the midst of today, then tomorrow.

Adversity is part of life, accept the challenge or be a victim.

    This is powerful in it’s simplicity. The final sentence is a key part. I was getting caught up in the part that said “Our goal is to live life happily until we die.” That was confusing because “life” has many facets. Its was confusing – do I deny the unpleasant? Ahh,I see, “Accept that adversity is part of life.” What comes to mind here is an earlier post.
    The one about Letting in come in but don’t invite it to stay for tea.
    Need much practice.

    Oh my, so many typing mistakes. I meant to say
    The earlier post that came to mind was the blog post that mentioned “Letting in all but not inviting everything to stay for tea”. Apologies for the confusion.

  3. Yes accepting is the way

    Trying to stop anxiety, panic or thinking is impossible

    First we acknowledge it is there, then we accept it.

    We let the thought and emotion go, we focus on the breath and the body sensations panic causes.

    We observe, we do not exert any control.

    Anxiety, panic, fear, anger, worry or doubt dies without energy from us (attention)

    When we stay present and focus, fear and emotion loses power loses energy and whiteners in its in

    Just keep it simple, just this moment we are dealing with.

    Welcome the anxiety in, as you say, then allow it to freely dissipate and leave without impacting us

    Emotions are fleeting, ephemeral and transparent

  4. Hey just part of texting and autocorrect

    We all have mistakes
