‘Our anxiety comes from the desire to have things be different. There’s going to be the day after the election. And the day after that. We need to be present to what is, regardless of the outcome you want. My ancestors had to prepare themselves, over and over again, for moving toward a freedom that was nowhere in sight. We prepare for life as it unfolds, not our ideal image of it. That is, literally, the only path forward’ (from the New York Times)
This was written before the election, and now we are here. Indeed we were four years ago, when Rev. angel was also dispensing wisdom on the subject.
