Breaking Down OR Breaking Through

I am at a loss for words to express what we are all experiencing during this time. Things are changing rapidly and life we knew a couple of weeks ago is no more.  For many, this interruption is a much needed pause to rest and to restore but not without the worry of financial and worry of getting the virus. This worry is real and it is global.  I am feeling all that you are - so we are in this TOGETHER for a long haul.  You are in my thoughts and in my prayers and most importantly in my heart.

How can I serve you in these times?  Enjoy the FREE resources and meditations ( blogs, podcasts, and FB lives).

Let's Break It Down ...

Spiritually

Let's start with the bigger picture.  Why?  Under the bigger picture, all the small things become more visible.  Spirituality is that bigger picture.  Mostly we have misunderstood spirituality and it's connection to our health and the health of our planet. Ayurveda has the wisdom and knowledge of this bigger picture.  While Western Medicine looks at dis-ease from the level of the symptom, Ayurveda goes to the root of it.  According to Ayurveda, the root of all dis-ease is disconnect from the Source and from our True Nature. b

The dis-ease that we are all experiencing can't be overcome by taking a pill but we can be re-assured when we re-connect with that part of ourselves that is non-physical.  And we do that by dropping into silence and stillness.  Here we live experientially rather than mentally. This gives us the courage and experience to cultivate Trust; trusting that this pandemic is happening for the good of our planet and our world.  The process can be misleading and we don't decide the process rather allow the process to be as it is.  This is how we can co-create our own reality by trusting and by allowing.

If we get too engrossed in the politics of this virus, we will experience more fear, anger, confusion and conflict.  Trusting that this too is part of the Divine process and holding all opinions and judgments.  This is not for us to understand or to agree but rather to TRUST.   This will give us access to our True Nature - which is Bliss, Peace, Neutrality, Love.

Meditation is the way to cultivate these qualities.

Physically

From the Spiritual foundation and with psychological ease, our physical health simply reflects that. Following the current guidelines of physical distancing, keeping our hands sanitized and away from our face is going to do more than just keep the virus away, it's raising our awareness to a level that we may have never imagined. Ayurveda offers much in the way of building immunity from inside out not just merely taking vitamins and herbs but doing so consciously.

Psychologically

Having a Spiritual foundation allows room for Grace and Courage. And that may help us navigate through our thoughts and feelings with greater ease.  The fear that we had so masterfully lulled is no longer silent; we can no longer pretend it away. I think all of our undigested emotions unavoidably are in our face.  We can't escape; we can't hide. This can be liberating and scary at the same time.  We no longer have to hold it all together pretending we are okay when we are not feeling okay.

So what I am suggesting is that you allow yourself to feel exactly what you feel.  Be scared, be angry, and be vulnerable and be free.  Allowing will make it easier, resisting and pretending will make it harder.  Allow the resistance; don't resist the resistance, it's part of the process.  Feel what you feel, don't make it right or wrong.  In other words, stay in the heart and let the mind unite with the heart. The allowing will make us break through and get to the brighter side. Allow yourself to break-down and then cultivate the courage to break through.

One thing I do know is that we are resilient, adaptable and courageous more than we think.  This pandemic has create the perfect storm within each one of us to break open and respond to our calling.

Let's Pull It Together

That feels like an oxymoron.  Pulling together and COVID19 don't yet go together.  I think, collectively we are all in a unconscious falling apart stage.  Our routines, our relationships, our future planning and our finances are all in a disarray and there is nothing we can do to stop it.  There is so much in our world and in our lives that has not been working for a very long time - those structures ( inner and outer) are breaking apart. Never has the external mirrored the internal in such a blunt and blatant way. Get out of the way, let it all fall apart.  This is where we are going to get a sense of our inner power.

A new dawn will be borne out of this chaos.  We are again at the Trust. We are living in the great unknown and that'' exactly what is needed for us to TRUST.  So much courage is borne out of adversity and so much strength out of vulnerability.  This has provided a different kind of paradox for us - there is a need for us to "see" it.

We will pull it together by breaking apart and then breaking through.

"Things falling apart is a kind of testing and also a kind of healing. We think that the point is to pass the test or to overcome the problem, but the truth is that things don't really get solved.  They come together and they fall apart.  Then they come together again and fall apart again. It's just like that. The healing comes from letting there be room for all of this to happen: room for grief, for relief, for misery, for joy." Pema Chodron, When Things Fall Apart, Heart Advice for Difficult Times
