spiritual teachers…
looked at their lives,
and their paths,
would this not be it?
break down prejudice,
profit, and materialism…
to the core of our beings,
we are family.
we need each other,
need to be needed by each other.
compassion demands
that we are responsible!
the fact that we allow
people to go hungry,
to be homeless,
to suffer…
while we seek to acquire
with insatiable thrust…
is nauseating!
the fact that we go to war
over territories and oil…
killing women and children,
is atrocious!
we are part of each other…
individual parts,
but parts of the whole.
we are responsible,
to and for each other.
not nations, not parties,
but communities,
involved, living
to and for each other…
