Taking ownership of all these things that we have done in the mainstream culture with repentance and humility is the only way forward in a different direction, toward sustainability and reconciliation.
So far, the resistance toward ownership of our actions is really just entrenched. But I have to hope and believe that standing for the simple reality that these things have and are happening -- and refusing to deny them -- will eventually lead to acceptance and awakening.
Peace & blessings
