The love that is the force of total revolution is the awareness and realization that we are one -- one with one another and with all that is -- and that what we do to any being, living and not living, and to this planet that we are part of we do to ourselves. With such love we live in I-Thou rather than us-and-them, we live in compassion rather than indifference or worse, we live in cooperation rather than competition, we live in peace rather than war. My realization that I am intimately and profoundly related to all that is began long ago and deepened as I discovered wisdom of the Far East and particularly wisdom of the Vedanta tradition. I don't know what is impossible. I know that what is possible is much greater than what we think is possible. Our capacity is much greater than our thinking.
