A Time of Uncertainty?
There is no doubt that the situation with COVID-19 is one of the biggest crises our generation has faced. Widespread anxiety and concern for the welfare of ourselves, our loved ones and countless others around the world is at an all time high and most of our ‘normal’ day-to-day activities have come to a standstill.
Many of us are having to cut back on our work, or attempt to accomplish daily goals while living in isolation, while worrying about how to stay safe and help our loved ones.
Finding ourselves with limited external resources to turn to and faced with uncertainty and confusion on a global scale, we want safety and reassurance. Where can we find an inner source of strength and refuge?
To begin answering this question, we need to look at our present state of mind. If we notice that we are anxious and do not have the space to think clearly, we need a way that will help us to relax and find an inner stillness.
This simple breathing meditation is a great way to begin relaxing our mind, creating space for us to consider others who are more vulnerable than ourselves.
