Hey, guys. Here's some food for thought for today from a recent Facebook post of ours - something to keep in mind for the upcoming weeks.
A talk between @timferriss & @jack_kornfield was particularly nice to get into. It helped us refocus on the idea that we are all connected. Like in a giant hive. The energies, emotions, and fears that we emit as individuals radiate into the collective.
A lot of good practices are laid out in the talk, but one general idea we took from it was; when we get spun up on the uncertainties in our lives, take a step back and try to tune into the folks all around the world right now in hospital beds, fighting diseases they didn’t see coming. And who would give it all to be anywhere else but there. Put our problems on the shelf for that moment, and throw some calm vibes their way. The hive needs all the calm and cool that it can get right about now. If everyone that can give it, does, maybe we can start healing this thing.
