The Lover’s Quandry

It’s challenging to be a soft man in a world of hard news.

Of course, we cannot be just the Lover. We need to access the Warrior in ourselves, too.

As a Warrior, I advocate for one thing above all else – compassion.

I have chosen to separate from people who I think are lacking in compassion, even if they’re in my own country, city or family.

Someone once taught me that there will be people I cannot get along with, but I can speak soul to soul with them and wish them peace, love and good health.

Today, I listened to two Zen healers and recognized in them my own soft side, the one I employ when I’m completely in love with the world.

They reminded me that living can be simple when we return to the present moment.

The agreement, however, includes accepting whatever is – like it or not.

It’s challenging to be a soft man in a world of hard news. But that’s the path I’m on.
