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.

  1. I so admire your insight. I always think about how your thought patterns perceive the world at 16 versus how I thought at 16. It’s truly a beautiful thing and I love you more and more every day, so much that it hurts. You make me so proud to be your mama.

  2. I love you so very much. Mom’s right–your perception of what the world should be and how you’ve chosen to live within it is inspiring.

  3. This is fantastic! You are a beautiful and loving soul! If only the entire human race would be open to thinking and believing as you do! We could all be better for following through with all sorts of revolutions! Rachel you are an inspiration!
