Desire, ignorance and inequality - this is the trinity of bondage.
The world is ready. People are telling us that they are ready to live their lives in accord with their values. The flame within them burns strongly, you can't put it out.
If you too belong to this movement, it is time to come forward 'out of the closet', be a role model, live your values and perspectives, be active in public discourse and provide leadership, inspiration and hope. The time is right for everyday enlightenment. To change your thoughts is to change the world.
