Very interesting post here, coming from the Tricycle Blog, via The Elephant Journal. It’s an ad campaign featuring some of the world’s most recognized “spiritual” activists. As seen by the photo to your right, what we do if His Holiness decided to just spend his time on the slopes, or if Gandhi decided to just grill on the barbecue, or even if Mandela said forget it all, I’m going surfing??
Not that these activities are bad, don’t get me wrong here, we all need a break. But what if the figures took a break completely and never got involved? Where would we be? Who would have inspired the world to fight Apartheid in Africa, to free India from British rule with non-violence as the driving force or to constantly spread kindness and compassion for all beings worldwide?
