Insect Repellant Patch Free Delivery

The past couple of weeks have enacted, insect repellant patch free delivery what one of my friends would define, insect repellant patch free delivery an 'earthquake'  of events which have increasingly created more of a world's global awakening. Insect repellant patch free delivery The series of events, insect repellant patch free delivery namely the voyages of the seven boats carrying activists, insect repellant patch free delivery aid and supplies to Gaza has forced the reality of the situation in the Middle East out of the media black out and into the light of recognition, insect repellant patch free delivery especially here in the United States. With any 'shift' of awareness or understanding that comes from violent, insect repellant patch free delivery inexplicable acts , insect repellant patch free delivery there still remain opportunities for growth and change. Insect repellant patch free delivery   I don't think there are many, insect repellant patch free delivery if any, insect repellant patch free delivery who better express such pivotal moments of opportunity and awareness better than Alice Walker. Insect repellant patch free delivery   I was incredibly moved by an interview Ms. Insect repellant patch free delivery Walker did while walking through the rubble and destruction inflicted on the Gaza community in 2009, insect repellant patch free delivery which I posted not long ago. Like the quote I posted from her impactful piece she wrote after the attacks on the Freegaza fleet, insect repellant patch free delivery I have found great comfort in picking up her book, insect repellant patch free delivery "We Are The Ones We've Been Waiting For".  What a gift we have in Alice Walker. Insect repellant patch free delivery I read the introduction and immediately it spoke to the weariness I, insect repellant patch free delivery and so many of us, insect repellant patch free delivery are experiencing in watching what is happening on our planet. Insect repellant patch free delivery As luck and perhaps serendipity would have, insect repellant patch free delivery I found her introduction on line and hope in light of all taking place today, insect repellant patch free delivery it will be considered appropriate to post here, insect repellant patch free delivery so that others may find some comfort in her words as well as feel compelled to buy such a wonderful book. I hope you appreciate as much as I have. We are the Ones We Have Been Waiting For by Alice Walker Excerpted from Alice Walker’s We Are the Ones We Have Been Waiting For: Inner Light in a Time of Darkness, insect repellant patch free delivery first published by The New Press, insect repellant patch free delivery November 1, insect repellant patch free delivery 2006.

Insect repellant patch free delivery It is the best of times. Insect repellant patch free delivery Try as I might I cannot find a more appropriate opening for this volume: it helps tremendously that these words have been spoken before and, insect repellant patch free delivery thanks to Charles Dickens, insect repellant patch free delivery written at the beginning of A Tale of Two Cities. Insect repellant patch free delivery Perhaps they have been spoken, insect repellant patch free delivery written, insect repellant patch free delivery thought, insect repellant patch free delivery an endless number of times throughout human history. Insect repellant patch free delivery It is the worst of times because it feels as though the very Earth is being stolen from us, insect repellant patch free delivery by us: the land and air poisoned, insect repellant patch free delivery the water polluted, insect repellant patch free delivery the animals disappeared, insect repellant patch free delivery humans degraded and misguided. Insect repellant patch free delivery War is everywhere. Insect repellant patch free delivery It is the best of times because we have entered a period, insect repellant patch free delivery if we can bring ourselves to pay attention, insect repellant patch free delivery of great clarity as to cause and effect. Insect repellant patch free delivery A blessing when we consider how much suffering human beings have endured, insect repellant patch free delivery in previous millennia, insect repellant patch free delivery without a clue to its cause. Insect repellant patch free delivery Gods and Goddesses were no doubt created to fill this gap. Insect repellant patch free delivery Because we can now see into every crevice of the globe and because we are free to explore previously unexplored crevices in our own hearts and minds, insect repellant patch free delivery it is inevitable that everything we have needed to comprehend in order to survive, insect repellant patch free delivery everything we have needed to understand in the most basic of ways, insect repellant patch free delivery will be illuminated now. Insect repellant patch free delivery We have only to open our eyes, insect repellant patch free delivery and awaken to our predicament. Insect repellant patch free delivery We see that we are, insect repellant patch free delivery alas, insect repellant patch free delivery a huge part of our problem. Insect repellant patch free delivery However: We live in a time of global enlightenment. Insect repellant patch free delivery This alone should make us shout for joy. It is as if ancient graves, insect repellant patch free delivery hidden deep in the shadows of the psyche and the earth, insect repellant patch free delivery are breaking open of their own accord. Insect repellant patch free delivery Unwilling to be silent any longer. Insect repellant patch free delivery Incapable of silence. Insect repellant patch free delivery No leader or people of any country will be safe from these upheavals that lead to exposure, insect repellant patch free delivery no matter how much the news is managed or how long people’s grievances have been kept quiet. Insect repellant patch free delivery Human beings may well be unable to break free of the dictatorship of greed that spreads like a miasma over the world, insect repellant patch free delivery but no longer will we be an inarticulate and ignorant humanity, insect repellant patch free delivery confused by our enslavement to superior cruelty and weaponry. Insect repellant patch free delivery We will know at least a bit of the truth about what is going on, insect repellant patch free delivery and that will set us free. Insect repellant patch free delivery Perhaps not free in the old way of thinking about freedom, insect repellant patch free delivery as literal escape from enslavement in its various forms, insect repellant patch free delivery but free in our understanding that our domination is not a comment on our worth. Insect repellant patch free delivery It is an awesome era in which to live. It was the poet June Jordan who wrote "We are the ones we have been waiting for." Sweet Honey in the Rock turned those words into a song. Insect repellant patch free delivery Hearing this song, insect repellant patch free delivery I have witnessed thousands of people rise to their feet in joyful recognition and affirmation. Insect repellant patch free delivery We are the ones we’ve been waiting for because we are able to see what is happening with a much greater awareness than our parents or grandparents, insect repellant patch free delivery our ancestors, insect repellant patch free delivery could see. Insect repellant patch free delivery This does not mean we believe, insect repellant patch free delivery having seen the greater truth of how all oppression is connected, insect repellant patch free delivery how pervasive and unrelenting, insect repellant patch free delivery that we can "fix" things. Insect repellant patch free delivery But some of us are not content to have a gap in opportunity and income that drives a wedge between rich and poor, insect repellant patch free delivery causing the rich to become ever more callous and complacent and the poor to become ever more wretched and humiliated. Insect repellant patch free delivery Not willing to ignore starving and brutalized children. Insect repellant patch free delivery Not willing to let women be stoned or mutilated without protest. Insect repellant patch free delivery Not willing to stand quietly by as farmers are destroyed by people who have never farmed, insect repellant patch free delivery and plants are engineered to self-destruct. Insect repellant patch free delivery Not willing to disappear into our flower gardens, insect repellant patch free delivery Mercedes Benzes or sylvan lawns. Insect repellant patch free delivery We have wanted all our lives to know that Earth, insect repellant patch free delivery who has somehow obtained human beings as her custodians, insect repellant patch free delivery was also capable of creating humans who could minister to her needs, insect repellant patch free delivery and the needs of her creation. Insect repellant patch free delivery We are the ones. June Jordan, insect repellant patch free delivery who died of cancer in 2002, insect repellant patch free delivery was a brilliant, insect repellant patch free delivery fierce, insect repellant patch free delivery radical, insect repellant patch free delivery and frequently furious poet. Insect repellant patch free delivery We were friends for thirty years. Insect repellant patch free delivery Not once in that time did she step back from what was transpiring politically and morally in the world. Insect repellant patch free delivery She spoke up, insect repellant patch free delivery and led her students, insect repellant patch free delivery whom she adored, insect repellant patch free delivery to do the same. We were not friends who saw each other often; not the kind of friends who discussed unpublished work. Insect repellant patch free delivery In fact, insect repellant patch free delivery we sometimes disagreed profoundly with each other. Insect repellant patch free delivery We were the kind of friends, insect repellant patch free delivery instead, insect repellant patch free delivery who understood that we were forever on the same side: the side of the poor, insect repellant patch free delivery the economically, insect repellant patch free delivery spiritually and politically oppressed, insect repellant patch free delivery “the wretched of the earth.” And on the side, insect repellant patch free delivery too, insect repellant patch free delivery of the revolutionaries, insect repellant patch free delivery teachers and spiritual leaders who seek transformation of the world. Insect repellant patch free delivery That any argument arising between us would be silenced as we turned our combined energy to scrutinize an oncoming foe. Insect repellant patch free delivery I took great comfort in this reality. Insect repellant patch free delivery It seems a model of what can help us rebalance the world. Insect repellant patch free delivery Friendship with others: populations, insect repellant patch free delivery peoples, insect repellant patch free delivery countries, insect repellant patch free delivery that is, insect repellant patch free delivery in a sense, insect repellant patch free delivery impersonal. Many people are already working on this model. Insect repellant patch free delivery They are the ones who go to places like Afghanistan and Iraq and place their bodies between the bombs of the United States and the infrastructure of the local water supply. Insect repellant patch free delivery They are the ones who collect food and medicine for those deprived. Insect repellant patch free delivery The ones who monitor the war(s) and report news that would not otherwise be heard. Insect repellant patch free delivery They are the ones who feel no joy at another’s defeat. Insect repellant patch free delivery No satisfaction at another’s pain. In fact, insect repellant patch free delivery the happiness that imbues this kind of friendship, insect repellant patch free delivery whether for an individual or a country, insect repellant patch free delivery or an act, insect repellant patch free delivery is like an inner light, insect repellant patch free delivery a compass we might steer by as we set out across the lengthening darkness. Insect repellant patch free delivery It comes from the simple belief and understanding that what one is feeling and doing is right. Insect repellant patch free delivery That it is right to protect rather than terrorize others; right to feed people rather than withhold food and medicine; right to want the freedom and joyful existence of all humankind. Insect repellant patch free delivery Right to want this freedom and joy for all creatures that exist already, insect repellant patch free delivery or that might come into existence. Insect repellant patch free delivery Existence, insect repellant patch free delivery we are now learning, insect repellant patch free delivery is not finished! It is a happiness that comes from honoring the peace or the possibility of peace that lives within one’s own heart. Insect repellant patch free delivery A deep knowing that we are the Earth—our separation from Earth perhaps our greatest illusion—and that we stand, insect repellant patch free delivery with gratitude and love, insect repellant patch free delivery by our planetary Self. * * * Excerpted from Alice Walker’s We Are the Ones We Have Been Waiting For: Inner Light in a Time of Darkness, insect repellant patch free delivery first published by The New Press, insect repellant patch free delivery November 1, insect repellant patch free delivery 2006.
