"I think it's so easy to extrapolate from this moment as if we know what's going to happen in a week, or a month, or three months, or six months, or a year. And this is one of those situations. The Buddha was always talking about it, of the importance of uncertainty. That really, we don't know what the next moment is going to bring."
"In this time when people are much more secluded than they're used to, when they're quarantined, when they're in the home, when they don't quite know what to do with themselves, there's a real opportunity to bring this quality of mindful awareness to the particulars of one's life. There's a real opportunity to be much more alive, and awake, and aware in one's day-to-day life."
||Ταράττει τους ανθρώπους ου τα πράγματα, αλλά τα περί των πραγμάτων δόγματα.|
Men are disturbed, not by things, but by the principles and notions which they form concerning things.
— Epictetus, 50-120 AD, Ancient Greek Stoic philosopher
