The desire to hide from the sadness and cruelty of the world is strong. We seek some peace from the emotional stress of exposure to people who are in pain and from our own pain. Yet our deepest calling is to bring and enlightened consciousness to the world we find right in front of us. We are called to be our authentic Selves and bring a consciousness of love and compassion to all of creation. This means we do not try to escape; we try to open ourselves to ourSelves more completely and from there, face the tumult.
