WE ARE VULNERABLE
Watching the news these days is hard. It hurts me to see how this virus has emptied the streets, taken away our routines and left us without kisses and hugs. We are all at home taking care of our loved ones and wanting to know when it will all be over.
Today in the news the director of Caritas spoke about those people who cannot afford to live in a house with light, water and gas. I could not suppress my tears when I thought about how bad they must all be having. It also made me think of the differences that still exist in our society. This virus has put us all on the same level and shown us that we can all be vulnerable at some point.
Unfortunately, there are no magic recipe books that present us with the ideal equation to solve this global crisis. I think that the key is that we must all start working on building a better world. Therefore, I would like to recommend today two books that can help us to redirect our current situation. One of them is MONEY MINDFULNESS (Grijalbo), written by Cristina Benito, which explains how we can manage money in a more intelligent and lasting way. The other one is PEQUEÑO CURSO DE MAGIA COTIDIANA (Libros Cúpula, “Small Daily Course”), by Anna Sólyom, which with very simple tricks is able to teach us to be more serene, calm and stronger to face everything that comes our way. Without a doubt, two readings that we should keep very much in mind to face what is coming.
