Glenn Beck in Israel, Days of Rage on Wall Street, The Mayor of Philadelphia, Flash MObs, and Who are You?

Everybody is manifesting who they are. Calls for love and nonviolence, calls for rage and economic equality, calls for looting and beating,
calls for courage,
calls to bring Down the Government, calls to Expand the Government.
There are movements to eradicate Jews and
to Remember the Holocaust.
to feed the poor and to stop the assault on women and children in Afghanistan, in Congo,(video)  in the USA, in that crazy place called Iran.
Efforts to get rich no matter what and
efforts to preserve our natural habitats and beauty, to stop those who treat our fellow beings with cruelty.
Oh, that grown-ups of wisdom and love were running the show...

This is a time to educate yourself. Watch films, read materials from "the other side" if you want to be able to talk, to communicate with each other. I hope everyone who reads this will not be trying increase the divides between us, but to softly open hearts.
We walk about
Manifesting who we are. Preaching nonviolence is not necessarily practicing it. Who you think you are, Be Really.

Do you want to Be Right and punish others, embarrass those who are wrong or who disagree with you, do you want to bring down public humiliation on those who are working against your noble goals--?
or do you want
Hearts to Open,
Enlightenment to come,
Peace to reign?
How do you think you can do that? What do you think will make that happen? Do you want results, change, love and relief, or do you want to smugly Display your Correctness?
Anyway, that's what i ask myself from time to time...

dr. martin luther king, jr. says:

As you press on for justice, be sure to move with dignity and discipline, using only the weapon of love. Let no man pull you so low as to hate him. Always avoid violence. If you succumb to the temptation of using violence in your struggle, unborn generations will be the recipients of a long and desolate night of bitterness, and your chief legacy to the future will be an endless reign of meaningless chaos. (1956)
We believe in law and order. We are not advocating violence. We want to love our enemies. If I am stopped, our work will not stop, for what we are doing is right. — 1956, in Montgomery, Alabama

Hate begets hate; violence begets violence; toughness begets a greater toughness. We must meet the forces of hate with the power of love. (1958)
A fifth point concerning nonviolent resistance is that it avoids not only external physical violence but also internal violence of spirit. The nonviolent resister not only refuses to shoot his opponent but he also refuses to hate him. (1958)

Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that. Hate multiplies hate, violence multiplies violence, and toughness multiplies toughness in a descending spiral of destruction ... The chain reaction of evil — hate begetting hate, wars producing more wars — must be broken, or we shall be plunged into the dark abyss of annihilation. (1963)

We must combine the toughness of the serpent and the softness of the dove, a tough mind and a tender heart. (1963)

oh, hitler

The Face of Cruel: HERE


"The way to gain a good reputation is to endeavor to be what you desire to appear."
Be as you wish to appear.
— Socrates
"Our youth now love luxury. They have bad manners, contempt for authority; they show disrespect for their elders and love chatter in place of exercise; they no longer rise when elders enter the room; they contradict their parents, chatter before company; gobble up their food and tyrannize their teachers." — Socrates
