Be fearless in the face of horror

Many of us are in shock and devastated, fearful of what the next 4 years of Republican leadership with no checks and balances means for our country, our world and our planet. The possibility of complete devolution is a sad reality.

Lest we practitioners forget: meditation is not an intoxicant. Don’t close your eyes and remain deluded. Stand up, fully awake, fully aware of the multitude of suffering, fearlessly knowing the interdependence of all phenomena, all events. None of us are free of culpability for the ignorance, hatred and greed that besets our species. We can be the liberation we are all waiting for.
