    Water- encyclopedia humanica
    Every human being,
    Is a walking encyclopedia,
    Infinite indigenous knowledge,
    Of local realities,
    That no one,
    Will ever,
    Fully know.
    Why do we walk past?
    We are discoverers,
    Above all else,
    We wander,
    To the farthest reaches,
    Of the earth.
    Why do we walk past?
    Melville, Conrad,
    Escaped to the high seas,
    To discover the world.
    But the boat,
    It contained infinite depths,
    Even deeper than the sea,
    That anyone dared ever discover.
    The journey to the strange other,
    The darkest, most dangerous,
    Most joyous,


  • Reflection on Pursuit in the Middle East and Jerusalem, July 2014

    Rebellion is only freedom when there is a path, and the path is compassion. Otherwise the new master is hate. 

    Rebellion is the mirror image of the oppressor, unless there is vision, and unless the vision is compassion.

    Heroes of peace grow like wildflowers. But they flower only through those who follow them. Otherwise they are crucified, or, worse, ignored.

    Heroes of peace are simply mirrors of populations ready to love. Until they are ready, not even God can shake them.

    Peace only calls the ‘every person’, and then heroes merely lead the way when the ‘every person’ is tired of not listening to the angel within.

  • Reflections on the Middle East June 2014

    Humans are using powers of reasoning and planning to make a far less violent planet than ever before in history http://tinyurl.com/lrdratd . Lets accelerate the pace.


    The defeat of violence is silence, for in silence there is observation, and observation yields reason, humility and compassion.


    Revenge and Compassion are the same. Both are crying mothers with raw hearts. But one gives birth to Hell, and the other to Heaven.


    When you oppose hatred with hatred you cannot win. Only hatred wins. Embrace those who hate and undermine their hatred from within. #Wisdom


    The only victory against hatred is love. Everything else is a defeat.


    Hatred is fire, and love is water. The hatred of the few burns the many who have no water, but those with water easily extinguish the fire.


    Policies without love cannot extinguish the fires of hatred. Policies with love are a mighty river. Human Rights
