Faith in the World

“He who trusts the world, the world betrays him.”
-Hazrat Ali Ibn Abu-Talib A.S

I’m just getting works that the Trump administration is going to pull out of the Paris climate accord and effectively scrap any chance for the continuation of human civilization into the near future. 

Is there anger? Of course there is. There’s fear and sadness too but this is what happens when we look to the world for security. There is no safety in samsara. The world will betray us. This body will betray us. May we not waste this precious opportunity and make a refuge that cannot be touched by death.
