Some Thoughts For These Troubled Times
Stay above the insanity as best you can, even as your heart breaks at the madness unfolding around you. You did not come here to deny the essence of your own being, to blindly obey the cultural and emotional conditioning which would have you join the chorus of hate; as desperate as that chorus may become. You were born from the great river of life; let it be your refuge, the space of your calling. For the river shall never leave you; it cannot leave you, since it is what you are.
If you wish peace, than become that for which you yearn. And when people come to you and cry, “There is the other, there is he that would do you harm”, smile and say, “Where is this other you speak of? I see only one who is the same as I.”
