Yogis teach us not to be attached to things and even people as they say it’s the biggest source of human suffering, because the more attached we are, the harder it is to let go.
What becomes clear in confinement is that we need far less than we think we do. Our flashy cars, our designer handbags, our branded clothes – suddenly haven’t got much use. In times like these kindness becomes a stronger currency than cash.
We also know instinctively who we want to connect with and who we don’t really care so much to see during this time.
