i know you

inspired by many. but the urging to make it today came from Charles. grazie.

[seems one of the biggest roadblocks to that beautiful world our hearts know is possible – is that we don’t trust people. ie: we’re afraid that if we set people free – they will be lazy/bad/et al..]

We are much more effective when we are non-judgmental, because then we are standing in reality. This is the power we need to access, if we are going to change the planet.     – Charles Eisenstein

1. perhaps i know who you really are.

2. perhaps we are alike.

3. if i listen with my heart. if i look in your eyes. i see you. i see us.

4. perhaps at the end of the day we are much the same. people who want to live a better/good life.

5. perhaps if i was you (in sum total) i would be doing the same thing you are.

6. love. state of non-judgment. we are much more effective when we are non-judgmental because then we are standing in reality. this is the power we need to access, if we are going to change the planet. – Charles Eisenstein

7. the thing about trust/love is that at its essence is this unconditional ness. ie: it’s not about trusting your action because of your credential/able trustworthiness. it’s about trusting your heart because your nationality is: human.

8. love is the movement.

9. perhaps what’s keeping us from betterness, from us: the danger of a single story. because a single story confines/binds us.

10. and perhaps none of us are free if one of us is changed. none of us are free. – Solomon Burke

11. perhaps i know who you really are. be you.

may 2015 – playing the hitler card – by Amanda

http://www.newstatesman.com/2015/05/playing-hitler-card

And slowly, over the next few days, I received a string of emails and voicemails from local Bostonians who wanted to tell me, in private, that they, too, had felt empathy and compassion and even concern for this 19-year-old kid. But they dared not say it aloud.

not alone. pluralistic ignorance keeping us silent. isolated.

I kept running the phrase in my head: “wondering if this trend of empathy had gone too far”. What’s too far? Is there even such a thing?

radical love.
