1. This Too Shall Pass from Jena Schwartz. “Nothing lasts forever but the love that is our essence. In life, this love might take the form of fire or water, softness or power, creation or destruction, or more likely, all of the above according to the season and chapter. Remembering this helps me keep an even keel when the waters around me rise and fall, when circumstances challenge me, and especially when I feel unequipped to meet the moment.”

It’s restless and pregnant and hot with the desire to escape and find something or someone to keep us company. When we can rest in the middle, we begin to have a nonthreatening relationship with loneliness, a relaxing and cooling loneliness that completely turns our usual fearful patterns upside down. There are six ways of describing this kind of cool loneliness. They are: less desire, contentment, avoiding unnecessary activity, complete discipline, not wandering in the world of desire, and not seeking security from one’s discursive thoughts.”
