Truth and Revolution

“When I despair, I remember that all through history the way of truth and love have always won.

There have been tyrants and murderers, and for a time, they can seem invincible, but in the end, they always fall.

Think of it…always.”

Mahatma Gandhi

Actions speak louder than words…that has always been my mantra.

I look for actions in all the talkers and see the real person.

The truth can be seen in the planting of a tree, care for the Earth, care for other human beings, compassion for animals…

Each morning I walk in the gardens to see and listen, seeing and hearing the truth as it manifests all around me in birdsong, changing colours, rain, sun…

“In a time of deceit telling the truth is a revolutionary act.”

We have passed “Peak Oil,” but if our governments told us this and began making preparations for dealing with the consequences, that would be considered revolutionary!

Most times the truth is not palatable in the short term and much of our living is lived in “short termism!”

The generations to come are not considered…there is no seventh generation, at least not in the mindset of those we trust to govern us, or should I say, entrust to govern us!

I live in the mindset of “Edge of Empire.”

My truth is very different from ‘short term truth that suits!’

I have no savings in any bank, but have long term investments in Mother Earth.

When was the last time you heard any government representative refer to “Mother Earth”?

What are we being told about Peak Oil?

Is anyone in government talking about what kind of world we are building, or planting, for our grandchildren?

If the answer is in the negative, then what manner of “truth,” are we being peddled?

Time to find our own truth and deal with it as best we can.
