A Vision for Race
Today’s offering is from Lynn Russell in Canada. Lynn’s Vision is short and oh-so sweet. She says:
I would like to offer an intention for all to think about.
We see a world where all people are appreciated no matter what color they may be. We know that no matter what size, shape or sexual orientation a person may be, that deep in the core of each of one, we are all exactly alike. We send special blessings to our Aboriginal brothers and sister from around the world in the knowledge that their suffering is now coming to an end. We know that the world is now ready to open its arms and embrace our Aboriginal friends no matter where they live.
And so it is.
Many thanks to you, Lynn! We love it!
“It is ignorance itself, it is a lack of wisdom in that community itself which brings about terror, injustice, maltreatment, decay and deteriorization.
“Now, here we have the final answer, I think: Wisdom afloat in a culture makes the culture. The very definition, culture, could be summated by the amount of technology, knowingness, wisdom, in existence in that culture. …
“However much harm might come about to a society through becoming mechanized, by finally mechanizing itself up to a point of where it blows itself to pieces—however much harm might come about because of that—any part of that harm could be nullified by a sufficient, broad spread of wisdom.”
“Courage is what it takes to stand up and speak; courage is also what it takes to sit down and listen.”
Your action for today is to make a communication that you are uncomfortable in making.
