It’s hard to find the words that do justice to the enormity of the heartbreak we are in. As we wake up to our new reality, we feel grief, fear, outrage, and a daily kaleidoscope of reactions as we witness the dying of our beautiful planet.
Our Dharma practice is for this, to meet reality. To know peace and equanimity, even in the midst of a world on fire, and to have the ability to turn pain to strength, confusion to clarity and overwhelm to focus. As we practice a deeper listening, we begin to find an enduring, free heart that can love, regardless, within an authentic and increasingly radical response.
