In this time of tremendous change and transformation may we appreciate the treasure of our Sangha community. If it's too overwhelming for you, turn off the news. If you are feeling depressed, pick yourself up and take a walk. It's beautiful outside and the trees are still turning and preparing for the long darkness of winter. Practice not-knowing. The sun rises each morning, clear and bright. Basic goodness is still the norm that can light your way. Dig down into your own meditation practice. Be still. Ground yourself. Then get up and walk into the market with gift bestowing hands.
