Calm And Steadfast



It’s in times of crisis when we’re called to remain calm and steadfast


It’s easy to descend into a panic, but panic doesn’t really serve a purpose beyond self-preservation.


And in many ways, it presents a greater danger.


It’s our most primitive of instincts, that heard mentality, when we are willing to sell out our brothers and sisters in order to save ourselves


It doesn’t have to be this way, because panic is simply about being void of any rationality.


It’s a wave of emotion that overwhelms you


Possess you to act and be something you are not,


In essence, for that moment, you cease being you, cease being human.


You lose yourself in these moments; acting only on an impulse you’ve lost control of.


So the response then, is exactly that, to respond and not react


To slow down, generate some space;


Detach a little so you’re able to consider things more objectively


To approach adversity from that human place,


That place that brings us closer together, not tears us apart


That place of faith, not doubt


That place of reason, not fear


of hope, not despair


Because this is what the human spirit is


And it’s unique to our species.


And it’s in these moments of adversity we get to find out what we’re really made of


So remain calm but remain steadfast


Attend to the matters at hand, but don’t allow yourself to descend into madness


It’s ultimately your strength of will and your ability to discern reality, that will make the difference,


That will allow you to be a service to yourself and to others


So don’t allow yourself succumb to fear, because as Shakespeare insists “it’s the coward that dies a thousand times before his death, but the valiant taste of death but once…”
