"Capacity"

If you never put yourself out there you can never come to know what yours is.

But we are tested so many ways.

How much of X can you handle?

The human heart has an infinite capacity for love and pain.

We stretch its boundaries all the time.

The undercurrents these days are full of worry, stress and strife.

No wonder we do whatever we can to drown these things out.

Allow so much noise to keep us from hearing what's truly going on.

To see the world around us as it really is.

To sit there in that does not feel good.

The mind tells us to rationalize. The heart says jump.

Do we want to, try to meet in the middle?

Is that the place to be?

I have found that my endurance is strong for the extremes.

But I didn't know that until I allowed them to be tested.

To actually feel all the feelings.

Instead of staying comfortably numb.

That is truly living. And I like it that way.

Facing the real, stretching the boundaries,

feeling the maximum amount that something can contain.

That is what turns dreams into reality.

Darkness into light.

Inaction into action.

And right now, we need to see and feel and understand the truth.

About each other.

About our world.

It is the only way we rise up and save it.
