Collectively, we are all experiencing stress, insecurity and worry at a higher level. Whether some believe it is a world conspiracy to monitor people or you think it is a real threat and are concerned about the economy, we all share fear for the future, of the unknown and we all experience never seen before measures.
I have been reporting the translations from coronaindenmark.dk in French, Greek and English for a while now, thinking of the blind, and the expat community but it is a job that has taken it's toll on me. Not because I work 4-5 hours every night, editing and recording from a phone to make small podcasts although it is not small task and the result is far from the standards I usually and normally would like to work with, but because the contradiction in information is wearing me down. From do not wear masks, to wear masks, to "expect more deaths" but we are closing the Icu unit of Righospital- (due to lack of space?), to the lack of transparency-in my opinion- on how the numbers are shared, to the latest, " have casual protected sex if you want" but dont play contact sports, I can only say that I am standing in the middle, not knowing what to believe, anymore.
This is my professional site, and I do not want to be too personal or make this blog a life story, but knowing me, I probably will. Whatever the case, this virus, has taken us by surprise, and showed us so many things. The level of suffering animals endure in captivity. The incompetence and non preparation of governments worldwide. When danger arises, governments rely on statistics and dry math and human life takes the back seat. At least individual lives. It also showed us how fragile we are, and how our arrogance regarding progress, technology and knowledge is reduced to a big fat nothing, and that our goal, even now, is to keep our systems going. Money in, money out.
If that is not the definition of madness, I don't know what is.
We need to go on, regain normalcy and our brain is fighting change.
It reminds me of a woman who see's her husband coming home around 6 in the morning, repeatedly, and she forgives him, unable to see what is so obvious to the outside world, clinging to what was, and what she wants it to be.
But it is not. If it quacks like a duck, walks like a duck, it's probably a duck.
Anyway here is a mini meditation you can hear on the go, to put you in sync with yourselves, and calm down the moments of anxiety. And remember, the higher you raise above this, the more of an outlook you will have.
