Over and over again in both the Hebrew and Christian scriptures we find variations on the theme “be not afraid”. It’s simply part of the human condition that we’re going to face tough times. We must rise up to meet them, confident that like the arrow being drawn back, we will be propelled forward — usually with greater purpose and clarity than before enduring the trials put before us.
In our community, it is spring break so schedules will relax a little .. we will not have the group meditations this week but I encourage you to continue your daily practice. We will return to our regular daily sessions next Monday.
