Wild Chickens in Uncertain Times

The current economic challenges we confront may qualify as wild chickens or evenpetty tyrants (petty tyrants can range from simply annoying to distraction to holding the power of life and death). The financial crisis reveals the impermanent matrix that underlies the workings of the world. Key people and institutions have shown us the dangers of ignorance, greed, and delusion. They attributed a solidity and value to things that were neither. The house of cards now reveals itself. We are confronted with a painful reality. The concept of “wealth” spills through our fingers like water. We are unable to grasp it; we cannot hold on to it. This has always been the case, we are now acutely aware of it. These challenging remind of us of the need to proceed through days with as much mindfulness as we can muster. If we can know in our bones that change is the order of the day we may be able to ride these waves of tumult with more equanimity.
