With #covid19 being top of mind not only in the news but in the minds of the general population it bodes well to think about the different layers of what it means to be safe.
Taking the precautions for physical safety is of course wise but what does it mean to take action in regards to inner safety?
The Buddha once gave a teaching on loving-kindness and compassion to directly subdue the fearful mind. Physiologically, when we introduce the emotional quality of love and compassion the brain responds by releasing chemicals that result in feelings of calm.
Just like there are measures to be taken to protect our bodies, generating kindness and compassion can do the same for the mind. In this case we can contemplate our interdependence and connectivity.
All of us are unanimous in our wish not to suffer. We can also see that we want our loved ones to be safe and free from suffering. These simple human urges are pointers to our common ties.
We can also see that we are sharing the same planet, the same air, the same human hosts for this earthly experience. We are internationally working together to find a cure. Again, we see interdependence and interconnectedness.
The next time the mind moves towards fear, separateness, individuality, or contraction etc. recognize this. In that recognition realize that you may have a choice to think differently about the situation. Outwardly your actions may stay the same, inwardly however, by looking through the lens of kindness and togetherness you might feel closer than ever to the world around you.
"If you are chasing love, you are chasing yourself."Cayce Howe
