It’s easy to forget that the darkest part of any night is still only an instant. Whether positive or negative, every event emerges and expires from moment to moment. We often become attached to the experience and want the good to last forever and think the bad will never go away. But everything is continually changing. Recognizing this and allowing the waves of experience to wash over us without reaction while retaining the courage and wonder to watch what will happen next with an open mind and heart is our challenge and reward. Worry not about the darkness; it never lasts.
