    What is the purpose of war? Two and a half thousands years ago, Sunzi wrote a book about it in China. Adolph Hitler’s “struggle” was the celebrated title of his autobiography ~ Mein Kampf. We all know what this has ultimately manifested; not just WW2, but also the continuing crisis of global devastation. The truth is, the real enemy is “us.”

    That is the original notion of “greater jihad,” the esoteric battle with self. One does not need to be a Muslim to understand this, for it is the universal path of all humanity ~ also known from antiquity as the “Great Work.”

    Any individual, man or woman who has sincerely undertaken this commitment to self-initiation is no longer part of the destructive inertia of the world, but has become a force for creative evolution.

    To fully understand where we as a species are right now, how things MUST change ~ that is, if life on Earth is to remain viable ~ I cannot recommend the following recent 87 minute 3 way conversation strongly enough (with Amy Goodman, Vandana Shiva and Jane Goodall.)

    I urge Dandelion Salad readers to absorb and reflect on the wisdom of this impeccable “call to arms,” to heed the grave urgency of our current crisis, and to act upon this vital knowledge in the best ways they can. This is the only news worth heeding ~ radical, vital, essential…

  2. For every ‘enemy’ that is killed, a ‘terrorist’ is created. Charity starts at home, so instead of preaching to the world start setting the leading example at home. They say that when people lead, politicians will follow.
