Once more unto the breach! Sometimes life can feel like a prolonged campaign, an endless siege. Mysteriously, we never seem to know who is this entrenched foe; we only know that we’ve been on this crusade for what feels like forever. May we today find new perspectives on these embattled feelings. May we see not challenge, but instead opportunity. May we find not resistance, but rather deep living. Let us retain our warrior spirit, but transform those energies to higher purpose. Gandhi was such a warrior, as was Martin Luther King. We need not take on the whole world, but we can change it: let us begin today. For ever ascending energy we give thanks. Blessed Be, and Amen.
