When this pandemic comes to pass, you’re going to be in a new world.

How can you can use this time that’s been gifted in order to create your next opportunity?

People look for retreats for themselves, in the country, by the coast, or in the hills . . . There is nowhere that a person can find a more peaceful and trouble-free retreat than in his own mind. . . . So constantly give yourself this retreat, and renew yourself.
