“Love is the felt experience of connection to another being. An economist says ‘more for you is less for me.’ But the lover knows that more of you is more for me too. If you love somebody their happiness is your happiness. Their pain is your pain. Your sense of self expands to include other beings. This shift of consciousness is universal in everybody, 99% and 1%.” ~ Charles Eisenstein
Here is a taste of the upcoming documentary Occupy Love, by Velcro Ripper. It is billed as a film that captures the global (r)evolution of compassion in action.
Points that touched me:
- There is no other.
- The 1% are suffering as much as the 99%.
- We don’t yet have the language for what we sense, for what we want to create, and as a results, making explicit demands takes the heart out of the movement.
- The revolution is love.
The revolution is love, the vision a felt experience, a longing, a yearning. It is as though I am remembering the future, moment by moment.
