It almost leaves you breathless at times, the violence. Over and over again I hear the words of Ekhart Tolle reminding me that when there is a great in shift in consciousness, when there is a great push toward progression, darkness and violence will arise, there is a resistance, a fear, there is pain. Ultimately though, light reveals itself. Light, progress, forward movement always reveals herself. Babies are born through pain, dreams are realized through suffering - it is in great tragedy and pain that we see the best in ourselves and community. It is our job to get up, to walk through, to reach down and pull others up along side us. It is our job to VOTE, to take responsibility for your own biases, racism, the way you contribute to systemic problems, take responsibility and contribute to healing yourself and others. MY LIBERATION IS BOUND TO YOURS. I CANNOT BE FREE IF YOU ARE NOT.
