Bumper stickers seen on the car in front of me:
I remembered my “aha” moment when listening to Getting Unstuck by Pema Chodron. I realized that my rage and furor about inequality, molestation, injustice…were just that…Rage and Furor. Suddenly I recognized that I was feeding violence in the world with my thoughts and my actions. And I am really not in favor of violence.
What then is my path?
To soften my heart instead of allowing my hackles to raise. To take a deep breath and decide whether there is anything I can accomplish on the subject. To live in such a way as to not unwittingly perpetrate those things which I am against.
I must have made progress; because I am back to laughter over the concept of being confrontational about peace. Been there, done that.
