Glenn Murphy returns to Plant Yourself to talk about how we can self-regulate our emotions and actions during a time of great societal upheaval and division.

We talk about our own impulses to “fight” with others, and where there's a messy intertwining of good intentions and unresolved psychological issues.

We discuss the physiology of the stress response, particularly as it relates to the shame and guilt that accompanies some of our attempts to right wrongs and redress injustices.

We talk about why and how to take breaks from work, from social media, and from the need to be always “in the struggle.”

And a strategy for transcending our need to be “right” and instead seek to make the world a better place by embodying sanity, peace, and love.

  1. Leslie Ann Farrar says:

    I’m not sure you will think of this as a very important recommendation for learning to live in Love and not Fear, but I will recommend anyway. Some years ago, I found a book called A Course in Miracles. It is a set of three books that teach behavior. It was shocking to me when I began reading it and studying the Course. But, it has fundamentally changed the way I look at Life, people, problems and Love. It is A Course In Miracles. The Course will give you instructions to study to learn to live in Love. It IS a Course. You will, perhaps, want to throw the books away or out a window or down your toilet. But, once you begin, you will return to the Course over and over again because there is nothing else you can do. I hope you give yourself a chance. I am a 71 year old woman, a Jew, a vegan and a Lover of Life.
