Sitting Quietly Through Chaos

There are times in life, when we see a friend or family member struggle on their path. It is painful to watch as they fight with their inner demons. As much as we'd like to help them through this rough patch, we must remind ourselves that this is not our journey. Understanding that the battle being fought is not ours, may help us so that we do not get swept up in the madness. Living a compassionate life is challenging because we want to help others in pain, but it also teaches us that through chaos we discover a better understanding of the resilient spirit that lies within us all. Today, take a deep cleansing breath and know that the stronger you become in spirit, the more you are able to guide those who seek your help. 
Sometimes it's difficult to sit quietly when there is chaos all around me...
