FINDING CALM AMONGST THE CHAOS

If you are experiencing a lack of energy, negative thoughts, no drive or desire, you may be suffering burnout. We cannot change external circumstances but there are ways we can bring ourselves back to our internal oasis of calm and insight.

Reminding myself of reality

The word ‘Buddha’ means ‘awake’. Awake is when we realise that our thoughts and feelings are disguising reality. They are blocking the experience of awe, of oneness, of wisdom. Waking up is being shaken out of preoccupation with that which is ultimately hollow, empty and insubstantial. In waking up, the body and the mind fall away and we are left with nothing and everything – the only consistent reality.
