We live in difficult times, with overwhelming challenges affecting all of life on planet Earth. Against all odds, some of us lift up our heads above the grind to mobilize our resources to respond to intensifying climatic, political, and cultural crises. How do we nourish our capacity to do the work? With enough of three things.
Vision maintains the faith that something else is possible.
Action deepens our sense of agency and capacity to contribute.
Mourning helps us be with the gap between our vision and what we see around us and realigns us with the flow of life.
When we know what is ours to do and what is not, we can discern our next steps with care for all the needs, impacts, and resources we know of, including the limits of our capacity.
With enough support, this can lead to more capacity to stay the course without burnout.
