Masked Dancers

It is easy and without substance to choose sides.
It is not so easy to expand one’s perspective through calculated and liberating experiences.
It is not so easy to digest value in our mistakes.
We get caught up in winning debates.
We get caught up in being a thesis or antithesis and fail to reach a synthesis.
Left and right
Black and white
Believers and non believers
All doing the same dance
Behind different masks.

– Travis the Traveler

Be greater than your fear.

No president is going to be able to fix the problems of this system because it is beyond the role of the president. We are groomed to only seek external solutions when the only real answer is in ourselves. We have to wake up. It is that simple. Reflect love and understanding rather than fear and judgement. It is not a fluffy, idealistic concept for unrealistic minds. It is reality and it takes courage to accept it against our conditioning and social obligations to stay within the herd. Be brave and be the change you wish to see. It might mean a more difficult life by doing this, but at least you lived for something greater than your own fears.
