We are living in a time when we need to practice knowing, but not attaching to, many issues. We need to know about issues in the world and in ourselves in order to choose good responses to those issues. We do not need to attach to those issues or to their outcomes because we can be hurt or disempowered in our emotional responses. While our energy counts, it does not control. It matters that we use our energy for the right and we must know that that energy joins other energies to change negative situations. We must, at the same time, take good care of ourselves, emotionally, physically and spiritually.
The enemy of the good is the oldest lie. Why should I even try if I cannot see the results of what I am doing? We do not have access to the larger picture of life. We may only see that we are making a phone call to protest a wrong action. We cannot see all the other phone calls that are being made and we cannot know when the pressure of all those phone calls builds to make the change which needs to be made. In essence, we are called to a level of morality based on faith in the light which changes and heals the earth and each of us individually. Have courage and walk in the light.
