My lovely friend Dorota has spent the last year or so working in China and so has kindly asked friends to share their messages with us about covid:
From my friend Isha in China , she inspired our network of Ambassadors of Happiness 这次疫情是对全人类自私无知的警醒，更加彰显了幸福共同体理念的重要性，我们需要打破国界与心灵分别的界限，净化内心，从戴口罩到关注饮食和说话尽量不对人造成伤害，这也更凸显了我们幸福使者联盟初心的意义，特别是各位幸福导师用你们的智慧去唤醒人们提升幸福意识，保护环境与心灵，放下小我，万物一体。 我和男友@见纲 在疫情期间连续数月每日抄写佛经，为全世界而祈福，也为各位祈福。我同时也在重庆鸿恩寺森林公园装修我们的幸福小院，请大家多保重身体，期待疫情结束早日与各位重聚，到时候我亲自下厨做中国美食给各位吃

Self-#quarantined at home for two months at home in Beijing already. So far, how has the “experiment” been?😏 There was certainly fear and anxiety at the beginning, but I learned to embrace my fear, knowing it was trying to tell me something deeper about myself. I choose to #trust life and allow life to work for me and through me. I’ve learned that the true power of “#Freedom” is inside of me, regardless of how the external appears. I’ve learned to live a more #conscious lifestyle, one that is more aligned with who I truly am, physically, spiritually, mentally. Thanks to the quarantine, I got time to take online courses and got the certificate as a “#Transformation Life Coach”. Coronavirus, this too shall pass. Let’s embrace the uncertainty ahead and support each other. 💖 Warmest🌞 thoughts to everyone.
