Sharpening ourselves

I think there’s much to be said for cultivating moods that bring about possibility – hope, joy, love.

But sometimes there’s good reason to despair, to fear, to rage, to grieve, and in these moments it may be asking too much for these more optimistic moods to arise. At such times it’s our capacity to show up, to stay involved, and to keep on contributing that’s called for.

Our responsibility – not to have our ability to act on what’s important become blunted by moods, or by our opinion (however accurate) of the state of our lives, of our work, or of the world.
