“Though there may be many beautiful sights to see, one achieves peace by staying at home.”
~ The Tao Te Ching, as translated by Richard Hooper in his book Jesus, Buddha, Krishna and Lao Tzu: The Parallel Sayings.
Dear readers, are you currently practicing “social distancing” to prevent spreading the virus?
My Mom and I are homebound, trying to make the best of this staycation. Last night she cooked some amazingly delicious plant-based Irish Potatoes!
As stated in The Tao Te Ching, peace can be found in staying home. Each day of this quarantine, we can take some time to do practices for Peace. Sitting in silent meditation, for even just ten minutes, we can focus on sending peaceful energies out to everyone, everywhere!
Hooper translates another similar quote from The Tao Te Ching thusly:
“A wise man is not compelled to leave home and search out grand vistas. He stays home and remains peaceful, above it all.”
No matter how crazy this virus pandemic gets, just keep remembering that deep inside your being is a calm, peaceful place. You can go there anytime through meditation, singing, and other practices.
Dear beings of peace, I pray you are well inside yourselves.
With peaceful intentions,
