I want to change the world. Call me crazy, utopic, anything you want, but I do have the conviction that we can. Either way, of course. That's our choice. But the world is the way it is because we've made it like this. Full of beautiful and amazing things as well as so many others not so. So if we stick our minds together with a very firm idea and intention to transform what is not so beautiful, what is amazing in some possibilities of nearly pure existence, many times with pain, suffer, hunger, dirt... They exist because we let them be. They exist because we support them. There is a very old tradition, the hawaian Kahuna, that talks a lot about these things. One of the deep practices is Hooponopono, asking forgiveness to those people or situations that we may feel attacked by. and saying how much we love them. This is an internal meditation. We realize that they only exist because we need them. And so we need forgiveness. We are responsible.

"Why should there be hunger and deprivation in any land, in any city, at any table, when man has the resources and the scientific know-how to provide all mankind with the basic necessities of life?" ~Martin Luther King, Jr.
