It is easy to lose hope these days. The worse sides of us seem rampant. Selfishness and greed seem to have eclipsed love and compassion. Yet where there is strife and hardship, someone always comes forward to help. Mothers continually help their children. We must be realistic and informed about what is going on. At the same we need not be overwhelmed and blown out of the water. This is where our practice helps us to maintain an inner equilibrium. Our practice cultivates a safe place inside that is nourishing. It brings us back to the present moment. This helps buffer outer chaos, stupidity, and selfishness, without completely ignoring it. This is balance when we are centered. It makes us sustainable and even happy in the face of adversity.
