still reflecting on the anniversary of the Jan 6th Insurrection and the continued efforts by some to consolidate power at all costs, with no regard to the harm caused to individuals, to groups, to the democratic foundations of this country.
what is the antidote to such insanity? in Buddhsim, the starting point is our own hearts and minds, sanity begins within ourselves. this doesn’t mean we ignore the structures and institutions that cause or contribute to harm, of course we work on them, but we include ourselves – our own heart and mind, because we are who create and inform the structures and institutions, the society and culture at large.
may we be the beneficial change we seek, may we be the healers and builders needed when others in their delusion harm and destroy.
