All churned up with no place to go!

We are living in uncertain times. In all parts of the world. And no one it seems actually knows how all this will end. Or how soon. So what do we do? How do we cope, when someone we love could die from this contagion? Or not. Or be just fine, mostly.

The serenity prayer advice comes to mind, the secular aspect of that, I would prefer to advise.

Give me the serenity to accept what I cannot change. Give me the courage to change the things I can. Give me the wisdom to know the difference.

Acceptance of what is beyond our control. Courageous action, to do what is helpful and informed. Wisdom, to choose the best options. A time to access that which is most special about the human species, our capacity to contemplate, cooperate, innovate and to rise above our primal impulses as we strive to sustain coherence across our communities.

We have choice. Mostly. So the time now is to choose, that which is in the greater good. Because doing so is more likely to serve our individual wellbeing interests too, in the long-term. For now, cooperate, support, be generous and karma will serve you will.
