Satyagraha

Satyagraha is a relentless search for truth and a determination to search truth.–Mahatma Gandhi

As I sit here this morning on the edge of the hundred acre wood that borders our property I am surrounded by peace and yet I know that in much of the world there is violence and killing some of it sponsored by my own government. It pains me deeply to know that my countrymen are being hurt, killed and in some cases doing the killing of others. We are all brothers and sisters in this world. We all have a creator and the creator did not intend this barbarism that we practice toward each other. The creator has sent Jesus, Buddha, Muhammad, Francis of Assisi, George Fox, Gandhi, Dorothy Day, Martin Luther King, Oscar Romero, Thich Nhat Hanh and each of us to be the change.

Use truth as your anvil, nonviolence as your hammer and anything that does not stand the test when it is brought to the anvil of truth and hammered with nonviolence, reject it.–Gandhi
