If there is one sweeping lesson that everyone all over the world is adapting to, it’s how we have to surrender to the present moment.
There is a lot of speculation as to what will happen in the months to come and even the experts are offering nothing more than hypothetical scenarios.
We don’t know if there will be a second wave of COVID and we don’t have a drop-date for when a vaccine will be viable for mass production.
As we wait, we may think it’s beneficial to imagine what the future will look like so we can brace ourselves for a worst case scenario. Yet in visualizing our own customized versions for what chaos could look like we participate in playing an infinite guessing game that sends our attention into an erratic tailspin of generating fictional scenarios that may never happen.
All that accomplishes is creating undue stress that taxes our brain and body with worry and anxiety, leaving us exhausted with dis-ease (disease).
Staying present and letting each day unfold, keeps us grounded in the reality of now. Today is the only certainty that we can act on.
When we direct our energy to remain rooted we have the ability to produce a vibrational fortress of stability that anchors us in staying centered. In turn, this nourishes tranquility and cultivates gratitude to recognize the blessings that are right in front of us.
So, commit to staying still until the entire truth has been revealed. Leave the art of storytelling to Hollywood.
Fear doesn’t have to be the commanding force that drives us towards going to a war that only exists inside our imagination. Practicing mindfulness is actually our best ally right now.
We’re unconscious when we simply react to our thoughts. When we can notice our thinking and pause to reflect on what we want to act on, it gives us the potential to produce our greatest desires rather than our deepest horrors.
