Found this video this morning on FB. He is connected to the Occupy Wall Street movement (which I know almost nothing about). But I am encouraged by what he says as it relates to humanity, he echoes what we have learned from Scripture. Have a listen.
"If you love someone, then their happiness is your happiness. Their pain is your pain. Your sense of self expands to include other beings. That's love -- the expansion of the self to include the other." Charles Eisenstein
"Love is the felt experience of connection to another being. An economist says 'more for you is less for me.' But the lover knows that more of you is more for me too. If you love somebody their happiness is your happiness. Their pain is your pain. Your sense of self expands to include other beings. This shift of consciousness is universal in everybody, 99% and 1%." ~ Charles Eisenstein
