I'm finding it hard to keep an open heart these days. On so many important issues, people seem more polarized than I could ever have imagined. It seems that the chasm is rapidly growing wider and deeper. The world feels scarier and even more unpredictable than ever. “Conventional wisdom” is no longer a trustworthy indicator of how events will play out.
Everyone has difficult times. No matter how blessed you are there are health challenges, financial struggles, relationship tensions and more. Often these come in multiples and persist for lengths of time that test your ability to cope, never mind stay centered.
