The 3000-Year Perspective

Here is an excerpt from the monthly newsletter penned by Jonathan Foust:

It’s one thing to recognize I’m stressed.

It’s another to find a way to be with it.

A poet once wrote that sometimes

“It’s helpful to take the 3,000 year view.”

That does open more space.

But it’s not just space we need.

I think it’s only when we can sense the vastness of space and infuse it with some kind of loving presence that we can step forward – informed by both wisdom and compassion.
