The more violence in the outside world, the more I look to that inner part of me that can, if allowed, stay peaceful amid the chaos. By "peaceful" I mean strong, not giving in to despair or hopelessness or anger.
From my 2001 notebook, month of March: Yesterday I was miserable and felt my life had been wasted. Today I realized that since I had survived everything and still had love in my heart, nothing had been wasted.
THIS has to happen for THAT to happen. If we interfere, that is, go against it, resist or block it, force it, or get in our own way, THAT won't happen, or it will but it will get screwed up. And the order of things is broken, and we have to start all over again.
The whole point of my jottings was to record what I learned, and to remember and reinforce them by reading them once in a while. Today it seemed appropriate.
May you be safe.
