Change will come, maybe not today, maybe not tomorrow, but it will come. You have to believe.
I close my eyes and see a better world. People there are fearless and connected, they are my friends. I'm there, I'm free. And this Earth itself is healed, and where nothing suffers.
Sometimes late at night, visited by dread and shame, I lie in bed and think about somebody
else's life. I imagine the love that they are getting and the relief that comes from being
really known, the private pleasures they share, friends they have and the pressures they don't,
their sense of importance, the satisfactions of their work. I imagine how fulfilled they are,
how rich their life is. And in these moments, I feel empty and wanting.
Sometimes I think of someone else's life. I imagine all the love they do not have. I see the passion that is missing, and the friends they do not know, and the awful pressures that crush them. In those moments I realize how much I have, and how much I have to give.
