Time for a Spiritual Revolution: Russell Brand {Video}

Nov 3, 2013 Tara 0 Buddhism, Featured Posts., Spirituality

“I think this is an interesting time,” offers Russell Brand, “I think the people are interested once more in formulating a different society. I think people are kind of bored of being exploited. They’re bored of a cultural narrative that supports elitism and exploits the people. The planet is being destroyed, we are creating an underclass…(and) we are exploiting poor people all over the world. And the genuine legitimate problems of the people are not being addressed.”

And to this, we are all very much witnesses. We see instances at every turn in our lives, and the aftermath posted daily on our evening news.

This has become the sad truth of our world. That exploitation wins out over compassion.

Or, does it?

Friedrich Nietzsche once said, “He who has a why to live for can bear almost any how.”

I think our ‘why’ is the rest of this most beautiful human family, and our how rests deeply within our hearts.

Tara Lemieux is a mindful wanderer, and faithful stargazer. Although she often appears to be listening with great care, rest assured she is most certainly‘forever lost in thought. She is an ardent explorer and lover of finding things previously undiscovered or at the very least mostly not-uncovered. Just like a butterfly, she is ready to spread her newly painted wings and fly to wherever the universe may carry her. But most, and best of all - Tara is a writer, always in search of a faithful ear. If after all of this, you still wish to seek Tara out, you can find her rambling on at www.taralemieux.com blogging happily at Mindful Musings, or blissfully connecting on her personal Facebook Page. Whichever path you may choose, Tara will greet you warmly and always with much happiness.
