On Revolution

"Revolution doesn't have to do with smashing something; it has to do with bringing something forth. If you spend all your time thinking about that which you are attacking, then you are negatively bound to it. You have to find the zeal in yourself and bring that out.  Marx teaches us to blame society for our frailties; Freud teaches us to blame our parents for our frailties; astrology teaches us to blame the universe.  The only place to look for blame is within: you didn't have the guts to bring up your full moon and live the life that was your potential."
 - Joseph Campbell, Pathway To Bliss

Amen Brother. In between the time I was eating the last of my watermelon and being somewhat thankful there wasn't a KFC nearby, I pondered this very thing. It is only ourselves that are holding "self" from living up to its true potential and lack of "guts" appears to be an underlying cause. Yet one has to temper ones self to avoid acting prematurely while hoping the time to act will be right before it is too late to act.

Harold - I may be late to the party with this link, but it's outstanding.
