These are difficult times.
Our Earth and our fellow beings are facing extraordinary challenges.
The weight is heavy on our hearts; what do we do with all of this?
Meanwhile, Autumn, in all its shifting and shades and splendor, so beautifully allows us to meditate on Surrender...
I once wrote the following,
Not apathy, nor to give up,
Not to condone acts of harm toward ourselves and others
But to relinquish illusions of control over the circumstances of our existence
To humbly acknowledge and accept the ebb and flow of our lives, our thoughts and our emotions
To believe in the inherent wisdom of consciousness far beyond our grasping and aversion
To open ourselves to it all
