Surely since the dawn of humankind, there have been inequities and injustices in the world. This is nothing new, and becomes more apparent every day as headlines scroll across your screens. It is easy to feel overly saturated by news and media, and at the same time, perhaps it is exactly this excess of global communication that is helping us shed even more light on the world’s crises and keeping these issues on the front burner. If we’re paying attention, we are also urged to look within, to reveal our own hidden shadows, and reexamine what we are putting out in the world.
In mindful presence,
Things are not getting worse, they are getting uncovered.
We must hold each other tight and continue to pull back the veil.
