It is always possible to make a new choice about how to be, what to learn, where to go, how to respond to life. This is what it means to be a learner, and this is why we are here on the Earth.
We need to choose hope over despair. We need to choose it over the belief that impasses are permanent. We need to believe and to trust in the Divine unfoldment of life. We can choose hope with every breath we take, not just for ourselves but for the world.
