Introductory Talk - In Darkness Be the Light
In tumultuous times when external circumstances trigger us into upset, it is tempting to let our minds run away into fearful thoughts and worst-case scenarios. When these upsetting thoughts overtake our attention, they can remove us from presence, from peace, from the here and now. If left unchecked fearful thoughts turn into fearful living, and our reactions can create some form of suffering.
