Reflect

There is a war that rages within us. The divisions that we see are a result of that war. There is a peace within us. The beauty that we see is a reflection of that peace. We spend far too much time dissecting and not enough time reflecting. You cannot strategize peace. You have to feel it.

You can strive for clarity in your own being. You can pay attention and when you are called to act, you can do so with integrity.

We hear of the 99%, the 10%, and the 1% – dissecting and diminishing our humanity into convenient, bite sized, distorted truths. We are invited to condemn another’s religion, skin, clothes, food preference, politics, sexual what-evers and on and on…and all too often we do. Dissecting.

That is not to say “Do not stand up to injustice or ignorance.” On the contrary, anything that robs you of your humanity is not your friend. Challenge it.  Change it.

You can strive for clarity in your own being. You can pay attention and when you are called to act, you can do so with integrity.

I believe in the 100% and that includes all life – animate and inanimate. If we act without consideration of all our relations* we are doomed to recycle our mistakes. There is a way out.

You can strive for clarity in your own being. You can pay attention and when you are called to act, you can do so with integrity.

Reflect.

 

 

*”all our relations” embodies indigenous understanding of the total and inescapable interconnectedness of all life
