our responsibility and our practice…

cruelty and deception can win for a period of time.

however, these traits and actions are contrary to life itself.

who amongst us can go to war with life and come out winning in the end?

in their delusion and fear, those who choose deception and cruelty will have their time and then their time will end.

our responsibility and our practice is to work with life, to bear witness to the harm of deceit and cruelty, to bring light to their horror and destruction, to limit their time and reach, and to be a source of healing for the suffering they have caused.
