A reader wrote in and said she was dying of waiting.
Me too, I can assure you.
What do I do to revive myself? (1) When I need to, I go through a number of steps.
I might bring up love from my heart, which, when it arises, changes my outlook completely, no matter what the issue is.
I might ask myself what my chosen ideal, my role model, or my chief guide would do at this moment.
I might explore where my bliss lies these days.
Or I might ask myself to write history forward.
What on Earth does that mean? Well, what happens here on Earth will be studied by other civilizations. Our role in it will be publicly available and part of the study – or not.
How do I want my own part to be read – if it is at all – when seen by a planet halfway across the universe? Or in another universe? What do I want to be said about me and what I did, how I behaved, during these years?
Maybe nothing will be said but maybe lots will. If I want to impact my behavior, if I want to inspire myself and keep myself on track, the thought of writing history forward – of behaving in ways I wouldn’t mind seeing end up in the history books – often obliges me to lift myself up and keep going.

(1) As a pillar, I’m here to the end so I don’t have the luxury of opting out.
