Why there's never been a better time to Pause
The origins of the word 'crisis' is intense focus. At this time, each of us has an opportunity to focus.
Life is always unpredictable and we never know where we are going, but on a day to day basis it can feel like we are in control and at some level this creates a sense of comfort.
This year, the Global Pandemic shook up this sense of control and showed us a different reality. With the loss of certainty, we can feel frightened, and when fear creeps in, it is easy to panic and lose touch with ourselves and our own truth.
The origins of the word 'crisis' is intense focus. At this time, each of us has an opportunity to focus. When the outer world is so unpredictable, it is tempting to put our attention there. However the real opportunity sits in being able to focus on our inner world. Focussing on being centred and grounded so that we can stay true to ourselves and our path in life. So, for a moment, take a breath, step back and imagine if this is an opportunity from life for intense focus, where do you need to put your attention right now?
There really has never been a better time to Pause. To re-centre ourselves, and return to the knowledge that beyond this crisis, life is, and always has been unknown and unpredictable, that is simply the nature of things.
