In Australia, COVID is striking back again.

We are facing invisible dragons – the virus, gases in the air changing our climate, and, in our minds, fears and anxieties for the future. All invisible. And therefore, easy for those with their own vested interests to deny.

The takeaway from World Service #6 might be – we can’t beat the dragons unless we first face them. But let us do it together.

Dr Martin Luther King Jr knew about facing dragons:

The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy.
The time is always right to do what is right.
Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.
Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.
Life’s most persistent and urgent question is, ‘What are you doing for others?
A riot is the language of the unheard.
Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter.
If you can’t fly then run, if you can’t run then walk, if you can’t walk then crawl, but whatever you do you have to keep moving forward.

The good news is that the anger I feel toward million-dollar space flights for the super-rich becomes inner energy that gets me out of bed in the morning to continue to work on my personal mission: creating and supporting opportunities for human flourishing.

My quote for the day: The practice of living in adversity is the art of transforming the negative into the positive.
