how to live…


if not all of us, but even most of us could abide by this philosophy…
may it be so and may it begin with each of us.

may we be free of aggression and violence…

goodness, the violence. i don’t know the details, but may all be safe.

we must stand firm in our resolve to not succumb to aggression and violence as a resolution to even our most passionate disagreements. and we must avoid the temptation to quickly politicize and use aggression, violence, or any tragedy to advantage an agenda.

may we remember who we are, our interdependence. my we listen and try to get to the root of anger that it may be transformed and healed rather than transmitted, giving birth to more anger, aggression, and violence.

may we all be remedies to suffering, not causes.
