I don’t believe that this is a call to complacency. This doesn’t mean that there isn’t work to be done or that we shouldn’t do it.
We should bring our attention to life in this moment. And in this moment where we see harm, we can work to bring healing.
This quote reminds us that we also don’t have to be overwhelmed. In this work and in this moment we can remember that there’s always change. There are seasons and cycles in this life.
That’s a very hopeful message, because that means there’s opportunity for healing, opportunity for love, opportunity to bring benefit. And this can give us peace.
