A Disturbance in the Force

"The dysfunction of the old consciousness and the arising of the new are both accelerating," writes Eckhart Tolle in Stillness Speaks.

"Paradoxically, things are getting worse and better at the same time, although the worse is more apparent because it makes so much 'noise'."

    And Karen Bishop's site:

    And - don't forget to breathe!

  3. Thank you, all. The ebb and flow is constant, eternal. Rock on.

  4. It's difficult to hold onto hope too tightly when you've had it snatched away so many times. But it's necessary.
