You should not honor humans more than truth.

Our democracy – in theory – is the rule of the majority through a representative government. Our “democracy” was founded with the genocide of Native people and the enslavement of Africans. Those in power are often in error.  The majority is often in error. Our history in these United States of America chronicles the problematic nature of democracy. Winston Churchill stated democracy is the worst form of government except for all those others that have been tried.  We can’t fix the world. We can change ourselves. If we change ourselves for the better, we’ve changed the world. All past political movements have fallen short. A lasting and firm foundation is found only in appropriate inner transformation. This inner transformation is confirmed in how we live. As our world is passing away, our appropriate inner transformation is the foundation of a new Earth.

Daily walk in beauty.

The rain fell, the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house, but it did not fall, because it had been founded on rock.
