We must stop looking to our leaders to bolster our mass denial. We must not perpetuate the illusion that the right government, the right technology, or the right armies can fix our problems. They cannot. We must ask our leaders to help us give up our mass denial and get down on their knees along with us, that all of us might pray to God to do what only God can do.
God is a peaceful ground of being. He is the energy of nonviolence. To ask Him to help us is to ask Him to turn us into profoundly peaceful people. …
With every prayer and every thought of love, we release the light that will cast out darkness. One light alone seems small and weak, but no one’s light is ever alone, for all our lights are part of God. We are bolstered by Him and by each other.
