I dedicate this Peace Star to all my beloved Jewish sisters and brothers who aim to make peace and bring harmony to everyone everywhere through the pursuit of social justice and truth. And to all those who work for peace and social justice, may we all come to know peace swiftly and soon, everywhere, in our lifetimes! Amen.

Before and After

Before and After.

Before and After,
Though not the same tree,
Everything changes but Eternity.

The election results have resulted in us feeling more fearful.
However, while fear may fuel us,
This fuel is not the most healthy
On which to run our lives.

These results have resulted in us feeling like we need to mobilize… galvanize…
And this is good…
However, shall we do it from our center core, or from a place of imbalance?
Shall we do it from fear or from love?
From hate or from respect?

Yes, it is always…
Has always been…
Time to come together.
Let’s keep going forward now.
Into Eternity.

We are one.
