Charter for Compassion
 
the invitation has arrived
to step into our courage
and our full humanity
 
from this day forward
the harm can only unfold
and multiply and spread
 
with our silence
with our consent
with our participation
 
we will not be silent
we do not consent and
we will not participate
in legitimating violence, lies and division
 
the love that we are
the love that connects us all
the love that bends history
even in this dark moment
towards liberation 
 
We are one 
we are many and
we are one
it is time 
dear friends 
the revolution of love
must be completed 
 
And it is only possible 
if on this day
we commit our lives 
to walking the hard road 
because there is now only one way forward

Join us for a Special Charter for Compassion Conference Call: After the Election
 
 
A discussion about compassion and how we are called to act following a US election season that has brought out strains of racism, misogyny, xenophobia, and bigotry. How can we heal? How are we called to action? What can we bring to the mission of making compassion a luminous force?
