Fiona and Barry give so much love and hope for our beautiful broken world
yesterday we attended the school student’s Climate Strike in The Domain, our friend Richard Whitfield caught this photo, there is great hope for our beautiful broken world but we all have a lot of work to do!

  1. May the poor find wealth
    Those weak with sorrow find joy
    May the forlorn find new hope
    Constant happiness and prosperity

    May the frightened cease to be afraid
    And those bound be free
    May the weak find power
    And may their hearts join in friendship

    -Shantideva-
    One of the most cherished inspirations of H.H.the Dalai Lama

    Oh that bowl!!! Gorgeous! Today I heard a 9 year old on the radio, being interviewed about the climate strike: “It’s not like you can just get another earth on Amazon or something” Hope looks like this younger generation 🙂

    and the children shall lead us …

    There are individuals who stand for the good of all and you dear Mo and Rod, are two of them. Peace, Hope and Revolution- three words, aligned in a way as never before. The children of this world are standing tall, living hope. To live hope requires that we act, in whatever way we can, no action too small but that we do so with respect, with peace and with conviction; this is how you hold a revolution.. To see the number of children who stood up yesterday was amazing and Hopeful to the max. My heart is full to know that my ten yr old twin grandchildren marched yesterday with their classmates and teachers; their school totally behind them…

      (((Marti))) the children growing up today are looking at us and asking how did we let this happen? We all have a lot of work to do to shift the dominant paradigm from corporate greed to respect for our beautiful broken world and honouring the rights of every sentient being. Awareness and education are creating a groundswell, in the not too faraway ecocide will be a crime, our respective governments have a lot to answer for, revolution is in the air & it smells like teen spirit!

    Hi MC – what a beautiful way to celebrate peace – peace in your garden and young people leading for climate change – there is still such strength and goodwill for those things that are important – there is still hope. Peace. B

    i love that collection of weathergrams Mo – they are ageing beautifully and quietly persisting…in small ways we just all keep on doing what we can – joining, connecting, sharing, caring, rallying, supporting, promoting.But mostly caring. Thank you for all that you do to help heal our beautiful broken world. I love those children and their knowledge, understanding and passion (and may i say wit – some great signs!). Go well,

      (((Fiona and Barry))) you shine, as Dr Clarissa Pinkola Estes said in her letter to a young activist in troubled times;
      ” …One of the most calming and powerful actions you can do to intervene in a stormy world is to stand up and show your soul. Soul on deck shines like gold in dark times. The light of the soul throws sparks, can send up flares, builds signal fires … causes proper matters to catch fire. To display the lantern of soul in shadowy times like these — to be fierce and to show mercy toward others, both — are acts of immense bravery and greatest necessity. Struggling souls catch light from other souls who are fully lit and willing to show it. If you would help to calm the tumult, this is one of the strongest things you can do.”
      you do!
