A powerful sense of conviction to do the right thing that arises after one has already let go of the outcome, because they see the situation as larger than themselves— almost as though they are already dead looking back at history. This is not at all to be confused with a feeling of fatalism, or with giving up, but something very far from that. It is a well of inspiration, that one’s every action has consequence and power, and that to be on the right side of history— regardless of the outcome— is greater than the pain of facing the sometimes difficult realities of the challenges we face.
