An election commentator last night talked about walking into the abyss. We do that every day. Impermanence is our guide. Attachment and aversion are our teachers. Our aspiration is to keep opening our heart in compassion to the suffering -- of ourselves, of others. And sometimes just breathing deeply is enough. Calm the agitated mind. Observe the neutrality of Mother Earth giving and taking away, the cycles of light and dark. May you be at ease, may all beings let their fear be released, and may we all let the wisdom of stillness and silence show us the way through the ongoing challenge of this life.
