It is a difficult time (see yesterday’s reading), though all positive forward progress has not been stopped. As long as we focus on accomplishing something worthwhile rather than merely escaping from our current situation we will find success. Struggling against powerful interests only leads to conflict. Being right doesn’t support our cause. People who rise from poverty without improving the whole merely replace their oppressors by becoming the new oppressors.
What we do in simple terms, step by step, coming from inner strength and just principles will make the difference, producing meaningful change and ultimate success.
