Yesterday’s post was on Resistance, and the title was inspired by my “I don’t want!” mood. Today, I am seething a bit about some things, and I’m wondering how to employ non-resistance. Actually, it’s more like non-violent resistance. How do I look at something that I feel is unjust and respond in a way that does not blame, shame or reject but does state emphatically my position and reasons and allows me to live out my values?
I don’t know how to re-blog something, so I will give you a link to a post I’ve been following and commenting on that deals with the birth control mandate in President Obama’s Affordable Care Act.
I’m also going to include today’s post from my fellow blogger in the UK. She has decided to respond to suffering and injustice by sponsoring a girl in Kenya.
I feel that justice matters, that women’s health matters, that population control matters, that compassion matters, and that the internet should be used as a tool to discuss what matters (and that doesn’t include celebrity hook-ups, IMO!).
Not to imply that I don’t also spend time on things that don’t really matter. Like this afternoon’s Chicago Bulls game. Which is one reason I’m rather late in posting this.
I also feel that loving the universe matters, and I want to live out that value every day.
