I know this is going to sound trite, but I don’t attend these peace marches since everyday is a Peace March for me. And it’s a slog most days.
I really wish we could enroll every person on the planet in a “Shadow” workshop, as in Jungian Shadow, so that people could learn to Identify what their motivations were, and recognize a Shadow one, and heal it… So we would not have angry moslem sects bombing tall towers, nor carrying bombs to kill themselves and everyone around them. Nor people who pray to a cross and then get a gun and shoot a doctor who is trying to keep one more unwanted baby from being born, a baby that might grow up abused, foster homed, etc and in need of severe love all their lives.
Why don’t we have in our vernacular language spoken on a daily basis that calls us to recognize our “Shadows” and honor the difference between higher self and lower self?
What will that take in a day’s or week’s or month’s of marches, other than the internal march within to continue to be conscious and seek to tame the vapid dragons inside that want to take us down and the whole world with it?
