How Not To Break In A Broken World

“All around me are familiar faces
Worn out places, worn out faces
Bright and early for their daily races
Going nowhere, going nowhere
Their tears are filling up their glasses
No expression, no expression
Hide my head, I want to drown my sorrow
No tomorrow, no tomorrow…”

-Roland Orzabal, Mad World lyrics

“The present convergence of crises — in money, energy, education, health, water, soil, climate, politics, the environment, and more — is a birth crisis, expelling us from the old world into a new.”

― Charles Eisenstein

Calling On The Big Self

“Listen: this world is the lunatic’s sphere. Don’t always agree it’s real. Even with my feet upon it and the postman knowing my door, my address is somewhere else.”


Steady Yourself From The Inside

“Be a light unto yourself.”

Buddha Shakyamuni

“I hold the highest office in the land when it comes to how I feel and what I believe is possible.

I determine the quality and conditions of my life.

It is not some person in public office, unless I decide to let their story trump mine.”

— Amy McTear

Be A Light In A Dark Room

“Darkness cannot drive out darkness: only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate: only love can do that.”
Martin Luther King Jr.

Take Breaks

“Now and then it’s good to pause in our pursuit of happiness and just be happy.”

Guillaume Apollinaire

Find Your Small But Epic Note

“You cannot get through a single day without having an impact on the world around you. What you do makes a difference, and you have to decide what kind of difference you want to make.”

Jane Goodall
