There is only one goal. That is to be whole again.

There is only one goal. That is to be whole again. How human beings live and work determines whether they remain whole or are split. ...

I always pick the simple over the complex. The direct over the indirect. The essential over the inessential.

I would pick the individual collection of rain water over the building of a dam. Help among neighbors to a scheme of assistance. Farming, community building, and allied businesses over so-called infrastructure such as electrification and road-building.

Health services need to be built around what is a healthy way of life, not illnesses and pharmaceutical practices. If we live healthy lives we do not need medicine.

There is no need for a banking system, the most rotten and corrupt of all systems.

There should be no systems in general.

Modern life has reduced vibrant societies to masses of people. Gandhiji said that while a group of people was a mass, a group of people with interrelationships was a society.

We need to recreate our society everywhere in the world, in rich countries as well as poor. People are hurting everywhere.

As we develop real societies built on genuine interrelationships we will reject the complex edifice of the parasite of modernism that is sucking life away from us.

We can start today by picking small over big, interacting with neighbors for our social and business needs over faceless commerce and so-called social media, and picking love as the only answer to all questions.
