Diane Petrella shared Marianne Williamson's We Need More Than "Love & Light" Right Now.
Marianne Williamson beautifully explains why I sometimes post about political events,. Sending love and light is good, but not enough. It's also important to not remain silent and complicit but to speak out and take a stand. ... See MoreSee Less
The spiritual community should not be standing on the periphery only talking about “love and light.” This is a time for us to be willing to speak up. If you agree, please share.

Shift that voice of doubt to a voice of trust. Change not only is possible, it's the probable outcome of a mindset that says, "No matter how long it takes, I can do this. I will do this."
Yes, you can. 💜 ... See MoreSee Less
Psychotherapists are supposed to be neutral. We're supposed to not "take sides." But some situations call for decisive clarity. There is no middle ground. Some situations are either morally right or morally wrong.
I am taking a side. It's not okay to support neo-Nazis. Period.
I could share something upbeat and fun, or post a message about staying positive. But in today's climate in my country, I can't do that right now.
I'm appalled and heartbroken by what is happening. I'm disgusted by the terror in Charlottesville and watching neo-Nazis chant their vile, hate-filled rants.
I can't put my head in the sand. I've been sending emails and making phone calls whenever possible to advocate for what I think is right and just. I don't want to be nice... ... See MoreSee Less
Daisy DimSumIt all makes me desperately exhausted. I don't know how ppl just get on with life since the Orange man has taken office. And I'm not even living in the US. I'm sad, tired, angry and i feel hopeless... All the time 😔 This was just another straw. Where will it end? (I'm afraid to ask)7 days ago · 1
Dawn WesenbergI don't see this as "taking sides". It's about what is right and wrong. In your line of work Diane Petrella, you work with the damage that is done by the wrong. And that is what needs to be spoken about. I often think about this poem if I feel unsure about speaking up, First They Came For The Socialists. www.ushmm.org/wlc/en/article.php?ModuleId=100073921 week ago · 3
Steve FredericksWhile I certainly agree with the sentiment of your post, the quote you attached adds to the rhetoric in its very first sentence. Fanning the flames in not helpful at all. There was and is nothing "nice" about Nazis or wannabe Nazis. The notion that if you are not against them then you are complicit in their movement is valid but nice people do NOT make the best Nazis.7 days ago
Sonia GuptaI totally agree. That you are standing up/taking a stand deserves a pat on the back.1 week ago · 1
My heart aches for the victims of the terror in Charlottesville this weekend. And for everyone who is the target of hate. And for those who hate because they're hearts are filled with bitterness. They are not happy. But they must be stopped.
The enormity of this problem plaguing my country, and the world, feels daunting. But Nelson Mandela's words offer some comfort to me. I hope for you, too. 💜 ... See MoreSee Less
