The Revolution is Love

What’s love got to do with the Occupy movement?
revolution is love still


"An economist says 'more for you is less for me.' But the lover knows that more for you is more for me too. If you love somebody, then their happiness is your happiness. Their pain is your pain. Your sense of self expands to include other beings.That's love. Love is the expansion of the self to include the other. And that's a different kind of revolution. There's no one to fight—there's no evil to fight. There's no 'other' in this revolution.
Charles Eisenstein

  • Charles Eisenstein: For a multitude of reasons, we need to need each other.
