What do we really control, if anything, during this worldwide COVID-19 pandemic?

Dr. Wayne Dyer said, “You cannot always control what goes on outside. But you can always control what goes on inside.”

Yes, we are certainly living in a worldwide pandemic of illness over which we have absolutely no control.  However, Dr. Wayne Dyer wisely commented that one can not control what goes on outside in the world.  Yet, Dr. Dyer gave us words of inspiration and joy.  Dr. Dyer reminded us that we can always control what goes on in the inside of ourselves.  When we see a virus outbreak such as this, how do we react?

Do we react with fear?
Do we react with worry?
Do we react with uneasiness?
Do we react with trepidation?

All of these are normal reactions.  However, we can also follow Dr. Dyer’s words of wisdom and we can change our reactions.  Let us use this opportunity to look inside of us.  Do we change our inside reaction to one of:

Reacting with courage?

Reacting with trust?

Reacting with calmness?

If we read the scriptures in the bible, there is a passage that says, “Perfect love casts out all fear.”  One of the absolute truths that Dr. Dyer consistently taught is that fear and love cannot exist in one’s heart at the same time.  So, I am using my time to write and add to my personal journal everyday.  I am adding all of the things that make me feel love.  I find that this exercise is a powerful exercise to cast out all fear.

Please let me know what all of you are doing in these turbulent times to help keep your emotions positive!
