Hatred is toxic, even when it is disguised as our politics, or our religion. Hatred is anger stuck in hopelessness.

Of course, anger can be useful and creative, as long as one has the inner process for transmuting that energy into sparkling clarity and presence.

This is true spiritual practice - the alchemy that moves our energy from the intellect into the body, and quite literally, from the head to the heart. But when anger gets stuck in the head, it becomes disease.

The earth doesn't need our dis-ease. The earth doesn't need our heads, full of political and religious outrage. She needs our feet to dance.
