I'm convinced of two fundamental truths about human beings. The first is that we all have within us a centred place of wisdom, harmony and strength. this is the truth that all the world's philosophies and religions whether Christianity, Islam, Judiasm or Buddhism aknowledge in one form or another: the kingdom of God is within you or as Archimedes said give me a place to stand and I will move the world.
The second truth is that we are all going to veer away from that place again and again and again. That's the nature of life. In fact we maybe off course more often than we are on course. The question is how quickly can we get back to that centred place of wisdom harmony and strength. It's in this sacred place that life is transformed from struggle to grace and we are suddenly filled with trust, whatever obstacles challenges or disappointments.
