In these few short months ahead, we must
make a concerted effort to begin the uniting bridge across the
divide that separates, transcending the gulf between what could be
and what will be. This gulf, which is really nothing more than a
lack of knowing, can only be bridged by love; love of self and love
We must not shout or protest or inflict our desires upon any other. We must not raise an army and fight but raise an army of wisdom, of light. We must do nothing but imagine that we are already where we want to be, on the other side of ignorance and division and suffering. We, who are the silent majority, can not relent to the minority.
A silent stare, a united care, an
untroubled dare - these are the winds of change that cause not
revolution but evolution.
There must be maturity in every breath,
a wisdom in every thought, compassion in every heartbeat. It is not
hard work, just a hard hobby that we have a passion for.
This is what is being asked of us. Let us not try to be enlightened, for we are already.
Let us instead be the village elders that our forefathers and foremothers bequeathed us to be when the baton was passed to us at birth. We have already succeeded.
We just need to believe it, and
thus leave behind the guilt and denial that imprisons us.
