"The world will change for the better when people decide they are sick and tired of being sick and tired of the way the world is, and decide to change themselves." (Sidney Madwed)
The "Non Violent Communication" techniques that Marshall Rosenberg so beautifully embodied and skillfully taught are some of the most helpful communication tools I've ever studied. Just got this book out again as I was feeling the need to brush up my skills during these chaotic times.
Oh to have everyone, especially our political leaders, learn these simple ways of thinking and communicating that help us relate to each other in ways that connect us with the divinity within us all.
This, instead of all the division in our world, is my heart's desire.
I highly recommend this book if you haven't read it yet. It underscores Rumi's philosophy as well:
"Out beyond ideas of right doing and wrong doing there is a field. I'll meet you there."
