We all have innate wisdom.
It is the wisdom that knows something is not right. That something is out of place or unjust. We feel it, see it directly. It might give rise to clear thoughts or intentions, it may not.
Innate wisdom knows that pain is not our natural condition. It knows that these feelings, this anger and aversion, is not our natural state.
We are not the storm. This tumult is not who we are. This disease is not intrinsic to us.
Amidst confusion, there is innate wisdom illuminating the darkness.
We need to trust this.
If we trust the pain, the confusion, and the anguish, then we will be crushed.
If we trust our innate wisdom, then pain, confusion and anguish become workable.
If we trust violence and hatred they will tear our life, family and communities apart.
If we trust our innate wisdom, then our communities can heal.
We have an opportunity available to us, we see it, we know it directly. We need to trust what are hearts are already telling us it true.
This is not who we are. This is not our natural condition.
Wisdom opens a path to healing.
