Soften Instead

July 31, 2020



“I don’t know why it’s so hard to remember that our fears rarely materialize, and that in bracing ourselves for the impact, we create the impact. If only we could let go and soften our bodies, soften our minds, soften our expectations, whatever happens would be felt as a nudge rather than a crash.”

  1. Imagine that being able to happen on a national and global level...in politics...I try...but sometimes I get into battle mode because of fear...This reminds me a a Buddhist concept that a friend of mine shared with me...

    1. Oh, how I wish it would happen, Rita. There seems to be so much fear (and anger, which is often fear in disguise) everywhere--it's really hard not to get caught up in it. I've had to be very careful how much news I read, because it's too easy to be overwhelmed.
