We can only achieve wholeness by being whole, we can only achieve peace by being peaceful, we can only achieve the end of suffering by ending our own actions that create suffering in our own lives and those of others.
We are not the 99% fighting against the 1%. We are all in this together. We are all of us and we are every generation past and still to come. We are the 100%.
Saving in its holistic sense is what we put aside rather than consume and how we put aside what we do. It takes some practice and conviction to enjoy not consuming with a clear sense that we are adding to the future and the future of generations yet to come. When our saving comes out of love, our investment will come from love as well and we will have boundless good fortune that regenerates the earth, regenerates families and society.
What we buy is what is made. What is made is what we earn. Our incomes come from output. In fact our incomes are our output. We must create output that is whole using methods that are whole and don't destroy the earth, don't split the person artificially into producer and worker, the have and the have-not. When we make wholly, we will earn wholly, and all violent conflict will simply vanish.
