Self Protection? Just Good Sense? — 2 Comments

  1. I struggle with this, too. On the one hand, I find myself generally happier when I don’t read or listen to the news. On the other hand, I want to be well informed because I can’t stand people who spout reactionary opinions without facts.

    After Obama won, I stopped paying as much attention. I tend to follow headlines on AlterNet or Raw Story rather than CNN.

    I don’t feel like I’m protecting my peace by not watching the news, I just feel generally happier.

    Hey have you ever tried meditating in the hot tub with the jets off? It makes good posture WAY easier. And it’s fun to focus on breathing softly and watching the water run still.

  2. Gandhi said “nonviolence is as old as the hills.” But some would have you believe what they are selling is their own wisdom.

    Don't believe everything you read or take what people who preach nonviolence to become famous and considered “wise” say as “Gospel” truth. Everyone's complicated and full of contradictions and sometimes deep hypocrisies, even heroes of the peace movement.

    Trust me on this.
