Outside is a myth

These are the times of the virus

People are suffering day in, day out

Oop! Nothing to do with outside

Outside is a myth

It’s all day in, an hour by hour

And as it is all ‘in’ and ‘indoors’

Let’s try to go more ‘into’ ourselves

And this is how we’ll be able to fight this time

This new challenge is to keep ourselves calm and at peace

It cannot be done by focusing our energy on the external stuff

As it is beyond our control

This time around, we’ll have to go within

Learn about our habits and patterns

And thoughts and ideas

And try to accept them

Try to give a different narrative

To this entire external situation

And that is how we can be in peace

We can live in the moment

We can amor fati (love our fate)

We can momento mori (death is inevitable)

And we can stay calm and smiling

Maybe this virus lead us here indirectly

But now as we are here

Let’s try to make the best use of this

And come out with flying colors

And when things become better

We’ll definitely get chance to experience

The external factors again 🙂

P.S.: This week’s song is How to be me by Ren & Chinchilla. I hope you’re taking proper care and trying to stay safe. Prayers and smiles to you all. Ping me, if you want to talk and share your experience. ‘Amor fati‘ and ‘Momento mori‘ are concepts of Stoicism.
