When we come to understand that our true nature is eternal luminosity, we will see that only love, compassion and wisdom will set us free. No amount of figuring out, strategizing, plotting or planning will end violence. We have tried these strategies many times through history. If they worked, we would not now be in a situation that my 92-year-old vet friend calls worse than World War 2.
While my mind is full of the sparkling melodies and rhythms of "I Am Light", I am aware of the dissonance that exists in the world. We collectively face rampant issues of war, poverty, unrest and suffering, yet do we not easily forget about the magnitude of this suffering?
