Living Timescales

If we want to participate in the creation of lasting change, we are called to . . .

. . . work for seven generations beyond ourselves, as the Haudenosaunee nations have taught us.

. . . feel through one day, for as Jesus says,”Do not worry about tomorrow. . . Today’s trouble is enough for today.”

. . . live fully in the present, as this time has been given to us for significant impact and enjoyment.

. . . expect that today’s work ripples meaningfully into the future, perhaps in valuable directions we have yet to anticipate.

. . . recognize that our liberation is bound up in the liberation of others, for our lives are intimately connected to the devastation and deliverance of the past and future.

. . . trust that collective intentions toward justice are truly moving in the direction of justice, even if we cannot see its fullness, for we recognize that the future arrival of justice beckons our work for today, calling it into being.
