For my dear friend Robert Leonard
There is only one way. And that is forward.
We do not wish to turn back the clock. We can agree that we must move forward.
We can not fight change. Change is in the nature of time itself. Nothing is still, what was once is no longer there. What wasn't welcomes the new day.
So we can agree on two propositions: 1. That there is always movement and that movement is forward. 2. That there is no fighting change, that movement forward encompasses change.
Given wide and across the board acceptance of our two propositions, propositions that we can all agree with, can we then accept that we can affect only the quality of that movement forward, the quality of that change. That we can affect the quality of movement and change in life. This is not a small can. We can do it. We really can.
So the question that emerges is how are we to do it? Do we take the mass movement towards bigger and more violent ways of living, the economics of more more and even more as inevitable? Or can we say simply, enough! We can affect the quality of our movement and change and in this very moment choose a simple word to guide us.
The word is simplicity.
