“I will not rebel and stand up against any authority
I will keep consuming endlessly
I will consume even more in a recession that I didn’t produce because I am told that I need to get the economy back on track
I will continue to believe everything the media portrays
I will obide by and accept all political regulations even thought I didn’t vote on them
I will continue to work longer hours and accept higher domestic bills
I will continue to be brainwashed by the false needs that advertising presents me
I will not protest in any form
I will continue to accept wars and poverty
I will continue to be governed by a rich minority and will accept corruption
I will continue to believe that I cannot make a change
I will continue to suppress the characteristics of myself so that I continue to fit into this materialistic society.
I will not stand up for what I know is right.
I will continue to argue that this is just the way it is.
I will continue to do what I’m told.
Signed: you?”

“Ignorance of each other is what ha made unity impossible in the past. Therefor we need enlightenment. We need more light about each other. Light creates understanding, understanding creates love, love creates patience, and patience creates unity. Once we have more knowledge (light) about each other, we will stop condemning each other and a united front will be brought about.”

“Don’t be in a hurry to condemn because he doesn’t do what you do or think as you think or as fast. There was a time when you didn’t know what you know today.”

– Malcolm X

“Look at a tree, a flower, a plant. Let your awareness rest upon it. How still they are, how deeply rooted in Being. Allow nature to teach you stillness.” Eckhart Tolle
