There is a place called, “beyond hope and fear”

ONE TUSK

What if, at the end of our lives, we die having watched destruction and not been able to create any good effect?

What, really, is available to us if we can’t save the world? What do we fund our work for? Where do we gain energy if we don’t believe that we’re going to be successful? How can we do our work without hope that we will succeed?
