Dr. King said, “We are tied together in the single garment of destiny, caught in an inescapable network of mutuality.” Yet, we continue to experience hatred today. Is it in part because we misunderstood Dr. King’s teaching as a political ploy to give power to black people rather than as a greater teaching of love and interbeing?
Was he, himself, afraid to further his own message by not speaking out for women, LGBQT, and any others?
It doesn’t matter because we are still coming, generation after generation. And it is this natural flow of things that is the true evolution. We can count on that.
Still Breathing will have an open sit on the morning of the inauguration, January 20th at 6:30 am. If you are interested please send an email to Unique Holland, at firstname.lastname@example.org. Everyone is invited.
In the meantime, Still Breathing wishes you safety and a powerful time together to those of us from our sangha and you who are taking part in the Women’s March on Washington in D.C. and around the country next weekend.
From Zenju Earthlyn Manuel and the Still Breathing Sangha. Peace.
