MLK Day

In this day, out of hundreds of MLK quotes, I want to share two of them that seem to encapsulate and explain the reason why we do what we do here:

“Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter.” – MLK

“He who passively accepts evil is as much involved in it as he who helps to perpetrate it. He who accepts evil without protesting against it is really cooperating with it.” – MLK

  1. Fear has been instilled, deposited in our minds since day one. The first big class we had was the One Law where we learned from day one to fear the Lord, fear the consequences that will come if we “turn our back on the Lord”. For many, the Lord is still Gregg Hake, Grant Clarke and any questioning, any sign of rebellion has many labels like “bitterness” or “victimization”.
    I feel for our fellow friends who still work at Energetix corporation or the Spa on Green Street in Gainesville, GA, who still worship Gregg Hake, Chuck Reddick, Grant Clarke and who passively have accepted evil out of fear. Have they become their accomplices?

  2. Greetings from a former member of EDL…back in the 80’s. I pulled out after taking a class in group dynamics at a college…so I could learn how to facilitate group meetings better…instead, I learned why I had joined many groups and how groups control members…whew!!!
    In the past few years I have been part of a training program called “The Right Use Of Power” by Cedar Barstow…ethics for those in the healing professions. Interestingly, Cedar was hires by EDL California to help them repair relationships within the organization. Her work is based in Hakomi. Check out the web site, invite Cedar to facilitate a gathering, recognize that we each have past patterns that influence our decisions…we did the best we could then, now we know better and can make clearer decisions. Do not continue to give over your power, use your power ethically, empower others to make their own clear decisions and forgive so that you may live free of the weight of blame and fear.
