Ron Van Dyke – Truth Based Solutions Require Grace – 28 May 2013

Uploaded on 28 May 2013 by Ron Van Dyke I was impressed with the video Peter van Runt made of the Sydney Australia Monsanto demonstration/rally because it was education and solution based, unlike the one here in Melbourne Florida. In fact, throughout the day yesterday, and again this morning, I’ve been pondering the concept of solutions. To me, solutions are responses to perceived problems. In other words, the first step in finding solutions is necessarily recognizing a problem. That’s easy in our world. We can see lots of problems, as long as we do not keep our heads in the sand. The problem is: we have been brainwashed to believe that focusing on what we don’t want – the problem – only gives us more of the same. Perhaps I still don’t get it. I still think telling the truth, even about what we don’t want, is an essential part of the process; and I give myself the grace to tell myself the truth as I see, feel and experience it. Honest communication is essential as I see it.
