Your life is a continuum of experience. It is uninterrupted. It is always passing over and through you. You have no choice but to ride. You ride. You are largely powerless against it's current. It's okay, you think, I have accepted this. But to accept the continuous onslaught of experience that you ride day to day does not mean you also must accept your community without scrutiny, right? It does not mean you have to accept the greed and ignorance that fuels the corrupt power systems at the helm of Earth's societies. It does not mean you have to accept the callous murder of civilians by police. It does not mean that you have to accept the institutions of racism and sexism that people are often willfully blind to. It does not mean that you have to accept genocide. Or torture. Or war. In fact, to accept the continuum of experience is an affirmation of life. It is an embrace of humanity and a rejection of unnecessary suffering. But what do you do when you reject corruption? What do you do when you reject the piggies gobbling up the cash like it's not a zero-sum-game? You want to fight back. I know you do. I know you're repulsed and you want to affect change, but it's of no use to wage war on war. You can't fight for peace without perpetuating the violence you're trying to exterminate. So what do you do?
