Today's meditation

Perhaps no one can say that they are strong enough to withstand emotional and spiritual affliction. Who can say, when in the throes of a challenge, that they are strong?

If we are lucky, we will be confident of pulling through and the end will be in sight, somewhat; but mark that the sensation of weakness lingers and victory is not yet guaranteed.

In reality, survival is a matter of placing ourselves away from such harm, as we would walk around fire.

Sometimes it takes all our strength to keep our distance from the things that hurt us.

I do not content myself with the belief that there is bravery, only acceptance of the task at hand.
