Another day focused on support of my partner and her middle brother as he goes through diagnostics to understand more about his recent health concerns. Like much of what life deals out, there’s the process of learning about what’s going on followed by the process of learning about what addresses what’s going on, which then leads to the process of changing whatever one’s doing that prevents what’s going on from continuing and hopefully, reverses its ill-effects.

How high the reward of him that hath not deprived himself of so great a bounty, nor failed to recognize the beauty of his Best-Beloved in this, His new attire. Watch over yourselves, for the Evil One is lying in wait, ready to entrap you. Gird yourselves against his wicked devices, and, led by the light of the name of the All-Seeing God, make your escape from the darkness that surroundeth you. Let your vision be world-embracing, rather than confined to your own self. The Evil One is he that hindereth the rise and obstructeth the spiritual progress of the children of men. 1
