It is now highly feasible to take care of everybody on Earth at a higher standard of living than any have ever known. It no longer has to be you or me. Selfishness is unnecessary. War is obsolete. It is a matter of converting the high technology from weaponry to livingry…..R. Buckminster Fuller
we can’t forget our troubles unless we connect to the heart…..to the heart of each other……to the remote grandeur of simply being……
It once was possible for the ancients to say, ‘We are the chosen of God!’ and to save all love and respect for themselves, projecting their malice ‘out there.’ That today is suicide. We have now to learn somehow to quench our hate and disdain through the operation of an actual love, not a mere verbalization, but an actual experience of compassionate love, and with that fructify, simultaneously, both our neighbor’s life and our own…..Joseph Campbell
How did the rose ever open its heart
And give to this world all of its beauty?
It felt the encouragement of light against its being,
Otherwise we all remain too frightened.
