A quick note here. We are in a time of tremendous volatility, not just externally, but for many people internally as well. On a daily basis, it seems, the world is flipping from one timeline to another to another. The future looks dark; I blink my eyes and all is bright. A blue sky fills with clouds in a minute, then they are gone again. Multiple realities coexist on a single planet. Multiple realities coexist in a single person.

Just saying, if you have been fluctuating between elation and despair, you are not alone. If despondency colors the breaking dawn, you are not alone. If a single ray of light (like a warm hello) dispels the despondency, you are not alone. If that hope is so fragile that a mere ill glance shatters it, you are not alone.

Maybe some people have been calm, centered, uplifted, and steady through this whole month. I have not. It is as if all the ups and downs of the past two years have been mashed together. No, this isn’t a call for sympathy or for help. It is a message of brotherhood to all who are experiencing the same. You are not alone.

If you are sensitive to the world, you are likely in this phase to feel its turmoil. Outwardly, we face economic turmoil, political turmoil, social turmoil, perhaps even geological turmoil. Narratives and social formations that dominated the last two years are disintegrating, leaving many people in shock. Official sureties are reversed. Heroes and villains exchange places. The tower of illusion comes crashing down. Some will pretend never to have believed in it. Some will pretend it is still there. Some will avoid thinking about it. Some will put their hands over their ears. Some will erupt in fury. Some will keep fighting the battle that gave them an identity. All of this is happening at once.

It isn’t a false dawn that you see. The best thing you can do right now is, when the moments of joy come, is to allow the joy to leap. These are emanations of a future that has now become possible. A path to it comes in and out of focus in front of our eyes, disappearing into the dawning radiance. It won’t be an easy path, but we will no longer feel lost. If you are in a despair state right now, notice what I have noticed: a tiny dot of guiding light is born within it.
