As we approach the Fourth of July, it's interesting to think about our country-and the larger world-developments, stagnations and in some areas what appear to be a devolution in thoughts, actions and society.
A vision (and enactment) of wisdom that holds and heals, that inspires and uplifts, that supports the multifarious nature of life and welcomes generous listening across the differences is what I hope for. It's sometimes so difficult to consider what might be wise now, and maybe not so wise in the future. What are the implications of the policies we advocate for or against?
As I sit in deep gratitude to my "old world" immigrant parents for coming to this country, I seek humility and wisdom to discern how best to envision and support a new, "new world" for our country and beings of our world, wherever they are.
