Panic! Panic! Everything is out of control!

  In the West we say “panic panic! Everything is out of control!” In the Buddhist world they say “relax relax! Everything is out of control.”   I heard this quote on a podcast recently where they were talking about the current pandemic and increased fear and anxiety globally.   While of course there are things that we can control, like our own personal hygiene, there is much we cannot.   So instead of joining everyone else in panicking, do…
