At first glance you might not put mindfulness and fear together or think that one can counterbalance the other. But while mindfulness invites us to be present with fear rather than run from it, it also frees us from being stuck in fearful thoughts and feelings.
The truth is no matter how much we try, plan, plot, arrange, have things to do, leave the house at the same time each day, arrive at the office at the same time, pick up the kids on time, we can still never know what will happen in the next moment.
The more we pay attention to the sense of another's love, to a place that provides beauty and ease, to our own strengths and aspiration, the more we connect with the heart space that will offer a healing refuge.
Deepak Chopra speaks in a calm and steady voice, answering questions you didn't know you had. Steeped in knowledge, and emanating the assurance that everything is all right, he's a good person to know in times like these.
