Occupy Wall Street, The Revolution Is Love. Charles Einstein, Sacred Economics
I usually don't write posts having to do with politics here, I post my photos and talk about art but, lately it seems hard to focus on anything else but following the recent Occupy events. The students at UC Davis, Scott Olsen, Zuccotti Park... It's painful watching what's happening to these liberty fighters. I find it hard to believe that some people think things are fine the way they are. How can they be so blind? We're headed to a dangerous place economically but more importantly we're walking a very serious line morally.
I'm proud of the peaceful protests and excited by the powerful current moving through the world inspiring; conversation, critical thinking and compassion. I hope I can teach my son to have integrity, to speak up against injustice, to have the heart and mind to truly listen to other people's opinions and a never ending desire to love. I believe this is where the future lies. Perhaps this revolution is one of love and light. I sign my blog posts, letters and emails with "love and light" and I mean it every time, it's my heart's most simple message... to care about the world around me and light the world with love. This revolution may be a quieter one, but it's extremely important. I'll continue to Occupy the Light, pray for those on the front lines of the occupy movement and most importantly pass this on to the next generation.
Love and Light,
Levi's Go Fourth.
