endurance…

“Is the dark side stronger?”

~ Luke

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

~ Yoda

we are seeing so much cruelty.

this can feel overwhelming and disheartening for those of us concerned with justice, truth, open-heartedness, 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, speaking out and taking action – compassion, kindness, and peace will prevail.
