Love is not only a feeling and a force. It is action.

We have the opportunity to wake up and to come home to ourselves, one another and the earth. By seeing the extreme shadows of our culture illuminated in the media and on the streets every day, we can also reason out what is opposite of the shadow. What will bring us back to more light in our hearts and world.

Connection, time and will and bravery to connect. Technology’s shadow is the way it takes us away from fuller interactions with others, our selves and the natural environment. I recommend everyone watch the PBS documentary HAPPY. It is a guide to more fulfilled living… the fundamental message being connection and intrinsic values… values that are not focused on externals like status but on meaning and bonding and service.  We can experience more love in our lives.
