Awakening sight


“It’s not what you look at that matters, it’s what you see.“

Henry David Thoreau

Over the weekend I listened to both the edited and unedited versions of Krista Tippett’s conversation with Jacqueline Novogratz for the On-Being Podcast: Towards a Moral Revolution.

Whilst it was recorded in January and aired last week to coincide with the publication of Jacqueline‘s new book Manifesto for a Moral Revolution, it was so timely.

Jacqueline: I think, in this moment of such peril and possibility, if we tapped into that stirring, that awakening, we really could build a world like the world has never seen before. And if there was ever a decade to do it, it’s this decade.

Krista: And the century may require that of us if we are to flourish in it, right?

Jacqueline: I think the century does require it of us. I’m not a shame person, but man, I want future generations to look back on us and say, “Look how hard they tried,” not “Look at how blind they were.”

Are we ready?
