There’s a lot of hand-wringing going on everywhere these days. As another month passes while we wait for things to change: the end of the pandemic – or at least a real vaccine and the dilemma of sending or not sending children to school, the run-up to national elections, still 66 days away, the unrest caused by racial violence…”How long can this go on?” we ask.
I read a quote this morning from Alan Cohen’s book, A Deep Breath of Life, that got me thinking about my own state of mind and how I am either contributing to or depleting energy from the world. It gave me pause and calls me to now to decide what could be a worthwhile contribution to the good.
My own peace is my first contribution to world peace.
