Just Breathe

It does seem like we’re being led constantly from one outrage to another.  Maybe the first step towards clearing the muddy water is to stop agitating it.

Or, as Thich Nhat Hanh put it:

We do so much, we run so quickly, the situation is difficult, and many people say, “Don’t just sit there, do something.” But doing more things may make the situation worse. So you should say, “Don’t just do something, sit there.” Sit there, stop, be yourself first, and begin from there.
