The world has gone mad. I’m sure we knew this anyway, but it seems to be more so now than ever, and everyone, unless you live on a mountain or deep in a rain forest somewhere, you are most probably wrapped up in it like everyone around you.
However, it’s moments like these that we should try and remember, or learn if you didn’t know already, that everything around us is only a perception, and the things are like they are because that is the way we perceive them.
And so at moments like these we need more than ever to get away, far, far away, from the maddening crowd. Meditation and emptying the mind is key to salvation; media and frenzy is to be avoided as much as humanly possible.
