Focusing on study, learning ,giving witness, seeking testimony, advocating in a way that is ‘self de-centered’
In her reply to the previous post, Laura Dennis asks how to overcome the divisions that separate us; how to move from the purely personal to something more “just”. I appreciate her reply very much because it is indeed a dilemma that I know I’ve alluded to without really speaking of in terms of actual practice. What started out as a simple answer along these lines has itself turned into a post of its own, if you will bear with me. The basic idea, I think, is to both move away from the personal, or at least tie the personal to economic and political realities, and in this find the “common cause” that seems to elude us otherwise.
