oppression itself against any individual should be intolerable

it's not just racism, sexism, and speciesism that are unjust, it's oppression itself against any individual that should be intolerable

until we work from a place of compassion ourselves, history will only repeat atrocities

acknowledge your conceptions and consider which ones might be misconceptions

we dance through life
some learn the steps to
move to but there are
those who have moves
all their own
it's the variety that
adds the spice to life

A Long Long Time

Until we are compassionate to all beings, including ourselves, we are doomed to repeat the lines 'lest we forget', 'stop racism', 'equality for women', 'keep our ancient forests', 'reduce reuse recycle', 'do not eat our friends', 'rats have righton', and so on so forth. Some are under the impression that they are superior somehow. This is apparently a justification for the presumed dominance and ill treatment of others. It has been suggested that some are more intellectual, can reason better, can control and manipulate their environment.

Choosing

For the first time in my life, I questioned my faith in the innate goodness/beauty of all humans. I have seen and felt painful and cold aspects of being human in myself and others but nothing really shook a basic trust I had for limitless beauty in this world. Are the questions now…so what? Or what the heck are you talking about? I am talking about what I have been learning about globalization and capitalism.
