Some days I have no idea how to keep going.  The world seems so damn crazy.  I watch Donald Trump and scroll thru Facebook and think I can’t imagine what the point of it all is, we’re so screwed how can I possibly make an impact?

But I always ( thus far! ) remember, often just in time, that there is no way out but in.

I went to the temple to meditate and while sitting in front of Buddha I had the huge Jesus stain glassed window staring down at me.  I love that window, something about Jesus’s presence in a Buddhist Temple makes total sense.

Therefore we do not lose heart. Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day. For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all. So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.

~2 Corinthians 4:16-18
