I used to crave love. Partnered love. Sex and love. The big one. The everything.. I think a lot of us crave that. We want it like religion. Twinning, merging, losing oneself, liberating oneself, the self floating away like smoke: Going. Gone.
It’s funny how much love rhetoric now sounds to me like the rhetoric of violence.
Now I crave justice. Deep justice. Justice that goes all the way down to the center of the earth and reaches all the way up to the sky. Justice with its arms to the sun.
Love needs to be the animating force, the illuminating force, the force that propels us forward. But when it comes to creating healthy relationships and healthy communities, love is not enough.
We need to fall in activism. [link]
