Here’s an article about waking up in difficult times by an English Insight Meditation teacher, Ajahn Sucitto. He points to the importance of meditation in ending stress and suffering, but also the importance of being engaged, and of being in touch with each other, and with nature. He says that reducing our own stress and suffering is important, but that we also need to help restore the natural world in whatever ways work for us. It’s a challenging message, but one I found very helpful. You can find the article here: Waking Up In Dark Times.
