Thomas Ramey Watson

Love is action

“I’ve heard people say that they cling to their painful thoughts because they’re afraid that without them they wouldn’ t be ac

tivists for peace.

“If I feel peaceful,” they say, “why would I bother taking action at all?”

My answer is “Because that’s what love does.”

To think that we need sadness or outrage to motivate us to do what’ s right i

s insane.

As if the clearer and happier you get, the less kind

you become.

As if when someone finds freedom, she just sits around all day with drool running down her chin.

My experience is the opposite.

Love is action.”

~ Byron Katie
