The world continues to burn, actually and metaphorically. I’ve felt somewhat depressed about all the shit that’s happening out there. Part of me cannot believe it, part of me knows its inevitable. How many times must we act out this Light vs Darkness scenario? How can we know what is real when we are lied to all the time? In all of this I am pulled to looking more closely at the light/dark within me and how I am mirroring the outer. So I sit and look. I observe with curiosity – who is this feeling angry, what is this fearful voice? What is this? Slowly, imperceptably I begin to know its my monkey mind jumping all over the place. Actually right now I am safe, all is well. This is the best place to take right, responsible action – not re-action. Everything that comes to me is something to work with.
