THE ROOT CONVERSATION
WHO WE ARE vs. WHO WE CLAIM TO BE
I believe in a core set of human values
to which we can all agree.
The only way to end fear, hate and ignorance is love, compassion and understanding. We cannot fight our way to peace or bully our way to happiness. Liberty does not come through imposing our thoughtless will. We will never feel safe if we do not learn to value all life. That we are connected to and dependent on each other is indisputable.
To stand in the light and see we are not different in the ways that matter, we must be honest with ourselves, and each other. Access listening, looking in, and seeing what we don't want to see. In one way or another, we all close our eyes to what is really happening. It's a natural defense to what occurs as overwhelming, out of our control and just too painful. Yet, when we uncover who we have been and face the impact of our actions, innocent and ignorant, we can chose to uphold our values in the day to day conduct of our lives. We can create a clear space where we are more able to see each other, and connect over what we can agree on. It is the intention of the Root Conversation to create that clearing from which we can build a world of our intention.
