“No one saves us but ourselves. No one can and no one may. We ourselves must walk the path.” Paul Carus, summarized from the Dhammapada, verse 165

CHANGE CREATION

Venezuela:    “But it took our leaders ten years to figure out they needed to actually go to the slums and to the countryside. And not for a speech, or a rally, but for game of dominoes or to dance salsa – to show they were Venezuelans too, that they had tumbao and could hit a baseball, could tell a joke that landed. That they could break the tribal divide, come down off the billboards and show they were real. And no, this is not populism by other means. It is the only way of establishing your standing. It’s deciding not to live in an echo chamber. To press pause on the siren song of polarization.”

FEMININE VOICE

“Here we have an image of the new feminine arising from the collective unconscious. This new form cannot be contaminated by the old emotional blackmail of patriarchy. When we embrace this new feminine energy, the old rules fall away and our natural instincts will guide us to higher levels of consciousness.”

From Dina Leygerman: You Are Not Equal. I’m Sorry. – Medium:  “Because I’m here to tell you, along with millions of other women that you are not equal. Our equality is an illusion. A feel-good sleight of hand. A trick of the mind. I’m sorry to tell you, but you are not equal. And neither are your daughters.  But don’t worry. We will walk for you. We will fight for you. We will stand up for you. And one day you will actually be equal, instead of just feeling like you are. ”  https://medium.com/@dinachka82/about-your-poem-1f26a7585a6f#.bn761km19
