Resist Reaction, Step Into Response

I feel that one of the most important acts of resistance we can all do each moment is to remain optimistic and find moments of stillness to cultivate our own solid power. 


As we fight for peace we are encouraged to practice it in our daily lives. Breath will leave you when it is your time, for now love each breath as the sunrise and sunset of your soul. Hear the beating of your heart as the metronome of your being. Rejoice to play your music, rejoice to hear it resonate with the Allmusic.


Keep planning for a bright future. Do not let people seeking anarchy sway you, continue to believe in community and love. Do not let injustice move you, simply move it back. Do not bemoan it, simply change it. We are allowed to free ourselves from reaction and step into response. 


We are getting a rude awakening: this reality is programmed by all of us. Human will shapes the world because we are of the world. We choose. Fear got a head start because it is an easy and cheap vision: think of all the fast ways to make art depicting "hell." There is nothing special in predicting doom, that is the lowest prediction for death comes for us all. To live is harder, to live is the subtle glorious complex simple empty full grandeur of the flash of infinity being itself. 

We have to remember that Donald and his kind are afraid at a very visceral and personal level. Thus we must not lurch up above them and destroy them, for then we would be evil. We must walk the middle way: we must help coax the collective nation and world out of fear and into faith.

We are reality programmers. Our intention makes the world. Our act of resistance must always be to imagine and practice kindness and love. Imagine and build beautiful artful things. Imagine technologies in harmony with nature, technologies designed to help heal mental and physical wounds. Before humans could fly we dreamed of it.


Fear got here first, only to lay the mud for growth. Out of it the flowers of our love for each other can bloom. Inside that love we will continue to build. We are the warriors of the future manifesting love from our hearts. Keep striving, I love all of you who try.
