The People Speak out Against Coal – Seattle, June 21, 2016

All life exists in a very delicate balance. The foundational sustenance of our lives does not come from the supermarket , printed green paper, plastic cards, or graphs of economic data about GNP displayed on a laptop computer. It comes from the web of life, the land, soil, air, water, sun, and indigenous wisdom traditions which hold as sacred every living being.

Break Free from Fossil Fuels May 13-15, 2016 – Global Day of Resistance

In my home town of Seattle, I live on a street with nice houses and lots of trees. When I turn on the kitchen faucet, relatively clean water flows from the tap. I go to the food co-op and there are beautiful organic vegetables, fruits, grains, and such. I do not need to huddle in the rubble of a bombed out building when I hear planes overhead. I do not need to get in a leaky boat and cross an ocean, maybe never to arrive at the far shore. I do not need to wonder where I will live when the ocean floods my village, my entire nation.

According to the law of karma, the mind of this life continues into a future life. If seeds of killing are planted in this life, those seeds ripen in future lives. We need to plant seeds of compassion, love, and understanding.
