Have you ever noticed how sometimes life can be full of activities and ‘doings’ and yet there is a sense of calm inside? And other times you can be sitting doing nothing yet full of overwhelm imagining all sorts of scary futures? This points to a simple truth that our personal experience and life ‘happenings’ are not connected.
It can sometimes appear as though there is a correlation between how we feel and what’s occurring around us but this is the illusion that leads us to believe that our well-being is dependent upon certain circumstances being met. It’s not.
Dr. Varsha Jain, a Doctor in a London hospital; and NASA researcher into aspects of female astronaut health in relation to spaceflight, is a great example of someone who has a jam packed schedule but sees that if she experiences stress, the schedule isn’t the cause.
Our well-being, our psychological security, is a constant and always present – it’s just our experience sometimes leads us to believe it’s under threat. Together we will explore how our personal experience and life ‘happenings’ are not connected.
