Elder, Aline Laflamme: We have to be like water...
We have to be like water now. When one way is blocked, the water doesn't pout and scream. It just flows in another direction. When all ways are blocked, the water becomes a still lake. Let's be water!
Our enjoyment of the day lies within ourselves. It is in our attitude. We can adopt an attitude of acceptance: We are in a pandemic and need to isolate for a while. Okay, social activities are blocked. What else would be fun? useful? enjoyable? fulfilling? Let's do that!
Then we need our attitude of gratitude… Let's be like calm water: Flow where we can and settle when needed... Calm, accepting water flowing happily where there is an opening…
Enjoy the great gift of today. We will never see this one again so we might as well really enjoy it.
~ Aline Laflamme
Elder, Larry Grant: How to weather the storm...
- How can you be more like water?
- Where is there an opening in your life?
- How can you use this time to deepen your sense of home and build an even deeper sense of belonging and connectedness for yourself and others?
