“If you don’t have a sense that you exist in a community, then resilience is really hard. It’s just you against the world.”
—Fred Luskin, PhD
“The brain needs calm to be able to think, evaluate options, weigh decisions, recover, plan and all sorts of things,” Luskin says. Especially in our tech-driven world, “that’s missing from [how] a lot of people do their day.”
Genuine connection to community and to our inner Self are essential components of life both in and out of quarantine. We expand. Both open us to possibility and selflessness. We cooperate with things as they are.
The essence of forgiveness is the ability to be resilient when things don’t go our way. It is a unitary experience of objecting to the way life is and trying to substitute the way you want it to be. Then we get upset that our substitution doesn’t take. Be at peace with what is. Give the next moment a chance.
