We don’t need to say any more about the profound and widespread impact of COVID-19; it is now woven through each of our daily lives. Unexpected start to the decade, for sure – and here we are.
For those of us privileged with a safe home, supportive community and resources, this is in the very least creating what feels like a whole new perspective on how we live each day.
More than ever it is time to commit to purifying our internal space, to find grounding internally when the external is a swirl. From this center, attachments to ways of being and material comforts naturally fall away. We pick out the stillness amongst the wildness of our surroundings. We see ourselves in those around us and feel deep shifts within us as we respond to these truths.
Take comfort in knowing you are not alone in facing these challenges. Our tribe is powerful and so is a commitment to ourselves and our wellbeing. When we root down in our practice, we find the equanimity needed to approach each situation with peace and trust, and we find the support we need in a world connected by a unified spirit.
During these quiet and introspective times, Om & Away wants to be here for you online in all the ways!
