“WHAT CAN WE LEARN ABOUT LOVE FROM COVID?
CHANGE IS INEVITABLE – HOW WE REACT TO CHANGE IS UP TO US”
Things change rapidly – and we are more aware of the truth than ever as a pandemic spreads around the globe.
When we are focusing on our lover, on our relationship, things change.
When we make plans, things change.
In addition to my work with couples and relationships, I teach meditation and Buddhist Dharma.
And the Buddha knew a lot about change.
He taught that there are three characteristics of existence – the truth of change, the truth of suffering, and the truth of ego/taking things personally.
So please know that life can be tough when things change.
But we are not helpless – we have a choice. We can change our mind and approach the truth of whatever is happening – good and difficult – with compassion, grace, and curiosity.
Want to be happy? Train your mind and learn to react to change well.
For more on this topic, you can watch a talk I gave on Saturday to my Buddhist group here on Vancouver Island
(Note – at minute 48, I lead a 15-minute compassion, loving-kindness, and calming meditation practice)
I’ll be back with you next week with your next Video LoveByte. In the meantime, remember compassion, love, and forgiveness.
We are all connected. We are all in this together. The only constant is change. This too shall pass.
Until next time – Love Liberally.
