Right now we are between.
On a small personal scale, for example, you are between breaths.
So pause here and enjoy the breath that is going in. And then going out.
Notice that focusing on your breath can be calming.
We also know that each breath is part of living.
And so we are always between one breath and the next breath.
On a large scale we are also between events.
These events may seem crazy.
Or these events may seem comfortable.
And in either case, these events are temporary.
So we are always in the process of changing from something to something else.
And yes, I know that some events can be upsetting. Painful. Scary.
Certainly, I have been disturbed by the news. I’ve done my share of worry. I’ve lost sleep.
And then I find comfort in knowing that everything is temporary. In fact, the worse something is, the less durable it is. So the faster it crumbles.
In addition, bad events stir people to take action.
They recognize these bad events as threats. Then they find ways to stop them — which has occurred consistently through history.
And this happens because our future depends upon having a society that values goodness, reality, and truth.
