Quarantino-Day 16 3/25/20
Its been an interesting and humbling experience since the world has been forced to "chill out" since the beginning of Covid-19. Heres a wonderful quote from a Rabbi in Sydney I'd love to share that has put a lot of this into perspective.
"It is not that we have lost our sense of certainty. We have lost our illusion of certainty. We never had it to be begin with. This could be majorly unsettling, or amazingly liberating. This tiny virus of 125 nanometers has sent the entire world into chaos. All of our plans are up in the air, markets are going crazy, entire countries shutting down, and we have no clue what the future holds. But that is always the case. We never know what the future holds. We only think we do, and keep getting surprised when things dont pan out the way we expected. Now the mask is off. We have to admit our vulnerability. What will happen next? We dont know. Our experts dont know. Our leaders dont know. Only God...Life (or whatever source you believe in) knows. And that is the point. Close your eyes and feel the uncertainty, make peace with it, let yourself be taken by it. Embrace your cluelessness. Because in all the confusion, there is one thing you know for sure, you are in God's/Life's hands. Keep calm. Panic and fear are also contagious. Take every precaution as advised by health authorities. Wash your hands well, and every time you do, remember whose hands you are in."
Well said Rabbi, well said.....
Now its time to take a break and walk a lap around the house....my New Normal..for now.
