  • 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. 

    Peaceful vision of a peaceful path. Otherwise, rebellion is merely an image of the oppressor. 

    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.
