As the world comes crashing down around us, it is important to keep things in perspective. In the midst of this disintegration we must maintain our sense of discernment. Its hard to make the wisest choice when the mind becomes captured by catastrophic thinking. Meditation is the key to taming the beast within. Progress can be made one step at a time. We must be willing to set our sights on solutions that serve the greater good. Guided by love and compassion we have the ability to create new structures to replace the ones that are presently falling away.
