I was recently passed an article espousing an new American revolution, drawing a firm line between us versus them. People versus corporations. A future of Ecotopia versus Mad Max. Passive sheep versus violent overthrow.

Nobody has claim to the one true perspective. Like the diagram above, (shared) reality is manifested by our multiple perspectives. Our ideas about reality are never as grand as actual reality – the perfect unfolding of life in all its forms. And yet our actions certainly have an effect on reality (also known as karma).
As we enter into further times of chaos, we must remember to live gracefully, no matter the challenges, and explore multiple visions of the future.
