The American painter and writer Walter Anderson once said -
We're never so vulnerable than when we trust someone - but paradoxically, if we cannot trust, neither can we find love or joy
We are living in a time of unprecedented uncertainty. We can't make any future plans and cannot be sure of how long we will be separated from loved ones. We can't guarantee we will come out of this unscathed and have no idea of the impact this will have on our futures. There are many reasons to feel anxious.
So how do we remain calm and reclaim our inner peace?
We must call on all of our strength and allow ourselves to TRUST.
Yes, we are vulnerable but if we do not trust that, whatever the outcome, we will be okay, we will find our peace - in what ever form it takes - then the walls will only close in on our lives further. We are, at least for the most part, in control of our own state of mind. If we can really lean in to this feeling of trust, there and only there will we find reassurance, joy and fulfilment.
So let trust be your companion in times of isolation, let the warmth of trust comfort you and bring you home.
OM NAMO BHAGAVATE VASUDEVAYA
I bow to the pure light created within me
The pure light that resides in trust
