This is an introductory article for my new blog, Openhearted Rebel. Hope to see you there!

A New Kind of Revolution
‘Openhearted Rebel’ is not just a name for a blog. It’s a way of life created out of awareness of the importance of compassion and openheartedness, and on this blog, I intend to share writings from the heart that cover various issues that are relevant to the spiritual and activist communities.
A new kind of revolution is sweeping the world, and it’s driven by compassion and a sense of responsibility for leaving the planet in a better condition for future generations. It’s a revolution of love; a social/spiritual revolution we can all contribute to, and the best way to contribute is to do what you love.
It’s rooted in the understanding that changing the world starts with changing yourself and being there for those who need you, and in my opinion, holding the people in power accountable for their lies and deceptions is also an important part of it.
This kind of movement doesn’t require bloodshed. In fact, it does the opposite by bringing awareness to the atrocities committed in the name of war and the importance of moving in a different direction.
The personal, heart-centered change driving this revolution will free us from hate, vengeance and the various other qualities that reinforce the world’s negative condition. Together, we’ll learn to rebel while embracing love, compassion and the understanding that we’re all human and spiritual beings.
A Basic, Essential Idea
Most people assume that a world of openhearted and compassionate people is impossible, but this basic idea is essential to a properly functioning society. No matter where you come from or what you believe, you can be open to love (or at least respect) for the people who share this planet with you.
This is all that’s required to plant the seed for truly revolutionary and innovative changes, and it results from a commitment to personal change. Even if most of the world has yet to be a part of it, your personal changes will prove powerful and useful for others who are just starting to wake up.
