The Definition of “Revolution”

7/11/16

A revolution doesn’t always mean weapons and protests and war.
A revolution can mean love.
Love: an intense feeling of deep affection.
It can mean peace.
Peace: freedom from or the cessation of war or violence.
It can mean harmony.
Harmony: agreement or concord.
A revolution is not always “a forcible overthrow of a government or social order in favor of a new system.”
Revolution: an instance of revolving.
Compassion is the new war.
What would happen if we loved all our neighbors like the bible told us to?
What if we started looking at the bible as just a book, and started listening to the messages God gives us in our everyday lessons?
What would God tell you? What kind of advice would he give?
Imagine words coming out of our mouths like perfectly harmonized symphonies.
True inner peace comes from loving yourself—not forcing others to love you.
What would the world look like if we started empathizing?
If we started forgiving ourselves for our “sins?”
Jesus isn’t the “answer.”
We are.
We are the revolution.

Oh god it’s wonderful,

Oh god it’s wonderful
To get out of bed
And feel okay
Just one day at a time

Oh god it’s wonderful
To love you like this
And to know you love me more

Oh god it’s wonderful
To feel light
And to feel powerful
And to know life’s alright

Oh god it’s wonderful
To love and to laugh
And to wonder about
Much more than what my life is

Oh god it’s wonderful
To run outside smiling
And for my fingers to be frozen
And for the love of my life to be out there
Beside me

Oh god it’s wonderful
To be grinning so big
And to feel all of my feelings at once
And to be so overwhelmed with love
That I give it out
To everyone.
