How difficult it is to see the inner dance in what repulses, divides, alienates, tests, or challenges me. I now understand that the cosmic dance is in destructive elements like tornadoes and earthquakes and in animals that destroy. It is also in the perpetrators of evil, in the hostile, the violent, the aggressive, and in those who have maimed our planet by indifference, ignorance, or greed.
