“There should be less talk; a preaching point is not a meeting point. What do you do then? Take a broom and clean someone’s house. That says enough,” Mother Teresa is attributed to saying. We can implement this advice by backing our words with action.
Many people speak of making the world a better place, but those who make a difference are doers. In the video below, philosopher and ethnobotanist Terence McKenna, a man before his time, found the right words for our current cultural predicament and prompts us to ask ourselves how have we changed the world. He also stresses the necessity of reclaiming our minds, or “what few democratic values we have obtained, what little space for discourse has been created will be the first to be swept away.” Instead, may our love and compassion sweep the planet!
