So often we accept the miserable state of what is because it feels too hard to imagine changing it. We see the problem but think real change is impossible, unrealistic. Yet we have many of the technologies needed for change. What we need is more imagination, courage, and grit.

"If you can see a thing whole… it seems that it’s always beautiful. Planets, lives. . . . But close up, a world’s all dirt and rocks. And day to day, life’s a hard job, you get tired, you lose the pattern. You need distance, interval."

When it comes to women in politics, the inequality is staggering. While women are 1/2 the US population, women in public office remains startlingly low: 20% of Congress, 23% of the Senate, and only 6 of 50 governors. We'll be talking about that and more in NYC on Monday. Join us!

Too often we see love as what we get from others, how we are recognized, how we benefit. Love is instead about what we give - freely and generously, expecting no thanks in return.
