With your heart open, look carefully at the ways you habitually place others’ needs over your own… not out of genuine compassion for them, but as a re-enactment of an early environment of shame and unworthiness.
Just one moment of clear seeing. Pure curiosity. No judgment, no self-attack, no more violence. End the war. Now.
It is in this seeing that seeds are planted for a new way, one encoded with wisdom, attunement, and a wild sort of kindness. This encoding is not passive, but one that shatters the status quo as a forerunner of revolution.
Out of these qualities, which are not added to you, but revealed to be the always already substance of your very cell tissue, the seemingly solid distinction between self and other will reveal itself to be quite translucent.
