Where do you turn when you have nowhere to turn? It's a serious question. What holds you up? What keeps you going? What do you live for? What is life for you? What is your foundation? Your ground? Your center? What is the rock solid, adamantine core of your life which nothing can knock you off of? Your core certainty/conviction? The one thing of which you are totally sure? The one thing around which your essential identity is eternally bonded? What object or image reflects or expresses the essence of your core? Make or find a surrogate of the object or image and carry it with you, or create a sacred place for it to reside at your home, to be a constant reminder of what is so, as a grounding/directing symbol offering balance and harmony, guidance and direction amid the clashing rocks and heaving waves of your life.
It's been a while since I recommended Jon Kabat-Zinn's YouTube Videos, so here it comes! Jon Kabat-Zinn is the father of Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction. He invented "be here now." Not really, but, he has helped bring "being here now" into the lives of millions of people worldwide, and you would be remiss if you did not avail yourself of what he has to offer. So, watch all of his videos-- the shortest ones first. And bring the regular practice of Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction into your life. It will make all the difference in the way you think about your life and go about living it. And in these times, we can use all the help we can find!
