Beating heart Be awakened and fully rise in your integrity . Beating my chest like the Gorilla behind the bars in the Zoo’s engineered habitat . Courage comes alive in the pulsing flow of your blood once you hear the cries of harmful tragedies by design . When integrity lies still and turns away from humanity is when humanity is no more . And when integrity opens it’s eyes to see that is when life becomes compassion which is blind to the differences between you and me .
It is possible to choose to break an old rhythm and know freedom from bigotry and loosen the grip of hate .
It is possible to choose to break an old rhythm and exercise your mind removed from mass media and discover a few moments of truth in the quiet .
It is possible to choose to break old rhythms of fear that are false in favor of trust and are born in compassion .
It is possible to choose to break an old rhythm of judgement and in it’s place welcome the peace that understanding brings .
it is possible to choose to break an old rhythm of hearing only the answer that your mind wants to hear and rather listen free from the notions planted long ago .
It is possible to see each other through the tender, forgiving eyes of the heart free from the chains of distrust .
It is a gift that I offer to you today and every day forward . i choose to place my thoughts , words and deeds on watch so that I WILL DO NO HARM .
