In the chaos of violence, senselessness, carnage, and despair, we can take care of each other.
We can hold each other with the most precious thing we can offer, our compassionate attention. Unwavering, we can love one another without questioning or second-guessing any aspect of that love or anyone’s life experience or identity. There is great Power in that coming together from wherever we are. In that solidarity with the deepest of places of our tender humanity, we begin to live the truth that the Buddha spoke of:

Hate never yet dispelled hate. Only love dispels hate.
This is the law, ancient and inexhaustible.

We begin to create justice in the only ways possible—through just means. Instead of trading Homophobia with Xenophobia as an insidious pattern of the market economy—Instead of displacing and playing off the oppression of one, for the oppression of another—we endeavor to dispel all oppressions, for the freedom of all beings.We can only create justice through just means—that is the law, ancient and inexhaustible. —Larry Yang
