Yet, the imperative is that we understand that we are more than our things and our lifestyle.
We are called, in no uncertain terms, to know who we really are.
You can know by choosing to be curious and walking that path. Or you can know by having everything taken away from you.
It is a choice.
We, in the West, have been too used to comfort, confident that its all about our comfort and our needs, forgetting the deeper, more important qualities of: courage, fearlessness, fortitude, selflessness, nobility and dignity in face of hardship.
It is a time for courage, for selflessness, for fearlessness and, most of all, power of the Inner Light.
