The following post is channeled material:
This moment in the illusion of time is definitely quite turbulent. In this life, one person’s perception can be quite different from another. But if you are able to discipline yourself enough to not give in to any fear you maybe currently feeling, you will suffer much less, since your perception of all that is happening around you will be much brighter.
Imagine you are in a boat surrounded by choppy waves. As long as you let the waves pummel the boat as they wish, you will also be pummeled about and frightened. But as soon as you take charge by taking a hold of the wheel and navigating the boat through the wind and waves, all will seem much more calm and much less frightening! This is what you must do in this situation of collective fear that presently exists in our world. Collect your thoughts and be a master of them. Don’t let your mind be your master. You must be the master of your own mind. Take control and rise above the waves that are pummeling you from all sides. Guide your ship into a more peaceful situation. The waves might still be there but your situation will seem (and thus be) much improved if you take charge, instead of giving in to feelings of helplessness and desperation.
