Where do you, as a person, start with dealing with the Coronavirus pandemic? When a situation like the pandemic we have now arises it is easy to experience a myriad of emotions. These emotions are usually not positive and prolonged indulgence in them only leads to a downward spiral of consciousness. Therefore the first thing to start with in a crisis is to get our mind in order.
I have, for years, harped endlessly on learning about the mind and how it works. It is during times like this that our mind can be an asset or a living hell to be in. Unless we can learn to harness our awareness and direct it to where we want it to go in our mind, we are left at the mercy of our environment. And when the environment is in chaos then for most people who have very little understanding or control of their mind, their mind will also be in chaos. Sadly, for most people, their environment dictates their state of mind.
My TEDx talk, Unwavering Focus, provides you with a concise and clear insight into the inner workings of the mind and also shares with you the tools needed to harness awareness within the mind so that it is not taken to the fear, worry, anxiety and stress states. You can watch my TEDx talk here. Even if you have seen it before, I highly recommend that you watch it again.
For those of you who would like to take a more serious and structured approach to learning about the mind and controlling it then I highly recommend you explore my Unwavering Focus course. The course takes you through a simple, step-by-step approach in understanding the mind, then ways to develop willpower and concentration so that you can use these two qualities to harness and direct awareness. Lastly, in Chapter 10 of the course, we dive specifically into how to use these learnings to overcome fear, worry, anxiety and stress. Click here to learn more about the course.

Stay safe by being obedient to the guidelines suggested by experts.
This article, as one of my readers so nicely put it, is about “…success as a subject and a target for criticism.” “If men perceived their own faults as they do the faults of others, could misfortune ever come to them?” ~ Tiruvalluvar Many years ago I was having a cup of coffee ...Read More
Eleven years ago I made the most difficult decision of my life. The decision to not renew my monastic vows and hence to stop living a life as a Hindu monastic. I left my guru’s monastery in Hawaii and instead of going back to Australia, I moved to the mainland US. Many years prior to…Read More
A couple of weeks back I was speaking with an entrepreneur who shared with me that she got involved in a personal issue with her client that she should have stayed out of. At that time she felt it was harmless to get involved in the conversation but later the whole thing played out unpleasantly. ...Read More
It’s only when you commit to a spiritual path can you truly make progress. In fact, this applies to any path leading to a clearly defined goal. But people are terrified of commitment. They would rather, as my guru would say, “be committed to not being committed”. Commitment for most means a givi...Read More
