If we can

If we can

If we can shift our own and other’s minds and hearts to value feathers, shells, and stones more than gold and to value freedom more than control then we could have a worldwide revolution without using any weapons.

If we cannot shift our own and other’s minds and hearts to value feathers, shells, and stones more than gold and to value freedom more than control than a hundred years from now we will be where we were a hundred years ago

which is to say we will still be here

War, poverty, inequality, heterosexism, racism, imperialism, sexism, rape, domestic violence, greed, dictators, oppressors, and control freaks will still exist and we will still be trying to overthrow them

And so perhaps the most revolutionary act is to confront violence with a mirror. And then to set fire to the violence in ourselves against ourselves in the name of peace, knowing that we are more and we deserve much better.
