Beneath all the activity, the hustle and bustle, the running, even beneath the happiness, people still feel or experience sadness. Maybe it’s been the way life has always been, but now it’s more pronounced. As a people, as a history, we have to be near some kind of culmination. Maybe not immediately, but near. The truth is, there is little satisfaction anywhere. It all has an emptiness. Yes, you might seem ok, you might even be joyful. Good for you. You should not look for trouble, but if you are ok, use your vantage point to look deeper and to see what’s underneath. Venture out and you will see things are unstable. Those who are in pain and suffering often know this first.
Use your strength to see what those in pain see. It is good to do so. First, you can empathize. Second, you yourself get to see what is beyond appearances. It is time to find the author. Yes take care of yourself. Do what must be done, but also look deep. Find his presence. Be aware. Reach to him from within and without. Now is the time.
