our power…

our power is love. inexhaustible. found in our open hearts. vulnerable, tender, brave, and strong beyond measure.no one can take this away. it is the weapon of the oppressed, that eventually defeats the oppressor, who in ignorance underestimates its power. it is the long arc. ~j

our love…

sometimes

it is just enough to know

you have the capacity to love,

to be moved by someone,

to feel.
even that can be a window

to the deeper love,

the love that carries us all.
may you know

you are worthy of such love

and that your love

is a gift to this world.
you wouldn’t be here

if it wasn’t.

gentleness…

it may not start at the top, but it can begin at the bottom with each of us.~j

remember, our resistance is not to people, but to the harmful ideology that is being pushed and enacted. an ideology of separateness, scapegoating, ignorance, fear, and aggression.
the antidote to these is inclusivity (a recognition of our interdependence), community (and equanimity), truth and awareness (or wakefulness), courage, lovingkindness, tenderness (open heart), and compassion.
