Today's message is about faith.

When you feel yourself in the depths of despair, there is one thing you can be sure of: things will change.

In the language of the Buddha, the word "anicca" means "nothing stays the same." Remember that change is built into life. Everything around you and inside you is constantly changing. If you are feeling hopeless, this information could show you a way out.

One antidote to feeling utterly defeated in a certain area (or several) is to spark your curiosity about another area. It can be something simple.

For example, if you're feeling wiped out over a relationship, get yourself to wonder what the weather is like in a city on the other side of the planet. Then look it up in the newspaper or on the internet.

Or if you're feeling hopeless about money, ask somebody a question such as, "If you could be any animal, which one would it be?" Listen to their answer, and then ask them three or four questions about that.

The point is to get your mind out of its rut. Once you turn your attention to a completely different subject and allow your curiosity to engage, you'll break despair's hold for a minute, and you'll start to set a new pattern of thinking.

With love,
