An Ever New Hope

Is it possible to feel hope in a planet full of uncertainties and dreadful miseries?
A story tells that one day Abba Anthony of Egypt, Father of the Desert asked:

Lord, how is it that some die when they are young, while others drag on to extreme old age? Why are there those who are poor and those who are rich? Why do wicked men prosper and why are the just in need?" He heard a voice answering him, "Anthony, keep the attention in yourself..."

Where do we focus our attention?
Why are we so attached to negative thoughts and emotions?

May we allow a different kind of attention by using all the senses, now?
A loving Witness waits to connect us to the World of the Soul, a dwelling beyond time, source of freedom and bliss, where all becomes possible.
