Can You Experience Tranquillity During COVID-19?


Facebook Live Video Notes

In today’s Facebook Live, I share additional thoughts and insights from my last podcast and article, “An Invitation to Experience Things As They Are in the Midst of the COVID-19 Pandemic.”

I share a passage from my book, Think Queerly: Meditations & Critical Reflections On Liberating Humanity to illuminate how we can be part of the change we want to see in the world, and how we can practice human-heartedness:

We are witnessing extreme divisiveness online and in the world, the need to be right and the need to belong to the politically correct group — an absolute need to be fully on one the right side of the equation and at the far end at that. We see how arguing from extreme polarities only creates further division.

But there is no equation to be on either side of, there is only a balance. Between all polarities is a middle space, a gap, in which all possibilities exist. We need to understand that balance is something fluid and constantly changing, never static, and never something that can exist on one side independently.
