patience and endurance…

“Is the dark side stronger?”

~ Luke

“No…no…no. Quicker, easier, more seductive.”

~ Yoda

events seem to be unfolding so quickly and from outside observation seem to favor at times a more aggressive, loud, indifferent and at times cruel and dishonest approach. this can feel overwhelming and disheartening when we are more concerned with truth and non-harming.

but life has a way of regaining balance in the long arc of things. that which burns most aggressively and fast, will also burn out sooner. nothing lasts forever, even power and cruelty.

breathing. keeping focused. keeping our hearts open, our bravery quivering, with patience and endurance – compassion, kindness, and peace will prevail.
