We are being offered an amazing challenge in our times to sort out love from hate, to choose more consciously what it is we truly support and believe and live. It is no longer sufficient to go from day to day in comfortable security, no matter how much
money or certainty we think we have. Mindlessly watching news day after day gives energy and escalation to the strength of the fear and anxiety that have come/are coming to characterize our moment in history.
We are challenged now to choose consciously in
our daily lives what it is we stand for, not always by speaking it out, but by choosing what we allow to fill our days, our minds and our hearts. Knowing the news is one thing; eating up every repetitive detail risks being its victim. This is a moment of deep
and deliberate choice for everyone of us. And more than this - an actual opportunity to reflect and choose the quality of the life we make for ourselves and the world.
