What is it that lies at the bottom of my heart? I desire to change the world. I feel that my place, my goal, my raison d'etre is to change the world one person at a time. My mission to make people think, to question their assumptions, their beliefs and their steadfastness. If I can inspire someone to question even one thing that they have never before questioned, I consider myself to have been successful at my goal. My goal will never be complete. My mission will be a continuous evolution of truth, questions, curiosity and humility wrapped in compassion. It will be a continuous becoming, and there is no place that we can come from that is more alive, more vital than on the edge of becoming.
I serve the evolution of peace. I write to broaden minds, to open eyes, and to awaken humanity. In the evolution of a state of mind, it is imperative that we come from a place of joy, of positivity and of compassion for our fellow human. War, fear, hatred, these will only bring more war, fear and hatred. Fighting will do nothing but perpetuate struggle. The revolution begins inside of our own hearts. It is the choice that we make to not divide, demonize or blame another human but to love them, to see their humanity and to have compassion for their journey.
Yes, I even mean the people who do things you don't agree with, the people who believe things that do not agree with what you believe.
"Peace, if it ever exists, will not be based on a fear of war but on the love of peace. It will not be the abstaining from an act, but the coming of a state of mind. In this sense, the most insignificant writer can serve peace where the most powerful tribunals can do nothing" Herman Wouk.
