Yes the world is in a state of turmoil and uncertainty and fear and panic lurk everywhere. Our scientists and researchers are toiling day and night 24/7 to discover solutions. Yet till then life must go on normally and naturally just as nature moves on silently and peacefully while accomplishing its purpose.

How nice if we too could be peaceful and calm like nature and happily go about our purpose with no fear in our minds. I feel the way to have a calm mind is to surrender completely to the Almighty and believe that he will take care of us just as He has till now. Allow Him to carry our worries while we do what our inner voice tell us to do. This approach will surely calm our mind and a calm mind will make us more alert to our own safety as also the safety of our community.

Be safe my dear friends and at the same time be also fearless and happy at all times. Replace Fear with Faith!

       Namaste

  4. I agree, we really need a calm mind during this time. The year has been crazy! My hope is that the fear will be balanced. Of course, people need to go out sometimes but it is irresponsible to be out there and not fear coronavirus. It is still out there and it still kills thousands by the day.

      Hi Marcus & Micah you are right we need to be calm much more in these times then ever before. We cannot avoid going out but follow the guidelines to remain as safe as possible.
      Cheers and best always 🍁😊

    Easy to replace fear with faith, however if faith eludes you, finding a way to discover faith takes a lot of courage.
    Not a criticism Dilip – I know of many people struggle to find their faith when in fearful states, as they feel abandoned.
    I will direct them to your website as it is a way forward.

      Hi SJ standard meaning of faith “is complete trust or confidence in someone or something” so when you find someone you trust ~ faith appears by itself. I agree with you re: people lose faith when deceived or abandoned. I feel therefore it is best to have faith in oneself and live up to it.
      Re: directing people to my website is fine but I am not a trained Counselor or a Life Coach in this field. I’m sure a qualified Coach will do a much better professional job to help them.
      Cheers and regards.

    Life thrives on hope and optimism. While this pandemic too would pass, it appears to be nature’s timely reminder that life is also about interconnectedness, allowing space for every existence. Take care, Dilip, and be well.

    This is the ONLY way to maintain peace of mind and to have a happy heart today, Dilip. Walk with no fear for God is not fear but love. xo

      Absolutely Amy to be fearless (by having implicit faith in the Supreme Being) is a powerful booster for our immunity level. And yes “Walk with no fear for God is not fear but love”.
      You and your dear ones be safe and in good cheer 😊

    You dear sir are perfectly insightful because you have lived a life in complete awareness. And yes whenever the fear of the unknown threatens to disturb my peace I surrender to the Supreme Being as there is very little that I can do.This brings immediate relief and calmness to my mind.
    Namaste sir 🙏
