I myself feel that I cannot get along with this society very well. There are so many things that make me want to withdraw, to go back to myself. But my practice helps me remain in society, because I am aware that if I leave society, I will not be able to help it change.Thich Nhat Hanh
from Being Peace
Boy, can I relate to that quote. I don't feel like I get along with this society very well most of the time. I have never really felt like I fit.
But here I am. So I show up and suit up. I do what I can when I can.
I don't know if I am helping to change it. I guess my act of being here and continuing on changes things. And that has to be worth something. It has to be enough for right now.
