I am reading that the world is suffering and grieving because we are uncertain of the future. Normal has gone. We seem to feel comfortable when we have certainty.
Actually not much is certain. Death and taxes. Maybe only death.
We can be certain of the present moment. If you are still here, you are in the present. I mean if you are still paying attention to what you are reading you are in the present which is certain. The present is always certain so make sure you use it wisely.
During this crisis, we have an opportunity to really live in the present. We can focus on what is happening instead of what is going to happen in the future. What is happening is certain. Predictions are not certain. We all have enough toilet paper for the moment or the movement.
So…focus on now. Put your full attention into everything you do. Listen carefully to people and things. Taste, feel, touch and leave the future alone for the moment. Invest your full attention into everything you do and make this a habit. This habit will help you in this new normal which is unfolding rapidly.
Listen to people more than ever before. Listen to what they are saying and not saying. This time can be an opportunity. The whole world is in this together. We are close to united in the present. If you look after others they will likely look after you.
