I have to remind myself to let go of all the bad energy, the anger, the clinging, the swearing, the despairing. Frankly, I don't know what I'm talking about half the time, but it sounds good in my head and feels NOT so good in my stomach. I read a couple of conservative bloggers yesterday whose posts made me sick and angry, but I realized, too, that mine probably do the same to them, and if I can go round and round with them, so goes the world.
I read this today and it reminded me of the dangers of dualistic thought -- maybe dangers is not the right word -- it reminded me that everything goes round and round.
We will not have a new worldview as long as people live inside the dualistic mind, because we will always be accusers of others. Remember the very word “satan” literally means the accuser. The constant satanic impulse is to try to change others instead of changing ourselves. -- Richard Rohr
