Nibbling On Asian History & Philosophy Series

From the book: When Things Fall Apart | Heart Advice for Difficult Times (page 37)
When the rivers and air are polluted, when families and nations are at war, when homeless wanderers fill the highways, these are traditional signs of a dark age.
Practicing loving-kindness towards ourselves seems as good a way as any to start illuminating the darkness of difficult times.
Hermit Poet’s comments:
Extreme negative changes are happening economically, politically, socially, and culturally, that cause people to feel out of balance and afraid for their future. Further, violence is constantly splattered across our screens which is emotionally disturbing. In the meantime, happiness slips away. Everywhere we turn, life is moving fast and humankind is not taking time to breathe and turn off the noise.
“Practicing loving-kindness towards ourselves seems as good a way as any to start illuminating the darkness of difficult times.” Pema Chodron
