When the span between the trustworthy and the treacherous seems chasm-wide in the world of human doing, we can remember:

 ~ Nothing that exists remains in a state of repose. Everything is either growing or declining.

 ~ Kind forces are drawing us away from preoccupation with “fighting evil” toward creative, collaborative, and limitless building of the good.

 ~ We are here to mirror to each other the attributes of the Creator.

 ~ Every attribute and faculty we possess, known and unknown, comes into balance as we strive to align the acts of giving and receiving.

 ~ An eternal life begins when we begin to acquire what lasts forever.

 ~ The gift of this age, bestowed on all humanity, is the right each one of us has to investigate reality independently.

 ~ The natural outcome of that expresses itself in willing, joyful acts of service — the personal and collective pathway for building the good.

How am I honoring and expressing that potential on my path?

How will it free my heart from the weight of a world’s unreal illusions this week?
