For more on this point — institutionalised greed, ill will, and delusion, David Loy’s book, The Great Awakening: A Buddhist Social Theory, is very insightful and eye-opening. https://www.amazon.com/Great-Awakening-Buddhist-Social-Theory/dp/0861713664/ref=sr_1_1?crid=17L428ZENFJQF&keywords=david+loy+the+great+buddhist+social+theory&qid=1668466247&sprefix=david+loy+the+great+buddhist+social+theory%2Caps%2C103&sr=8-1

One of the former refugees from Myanmar whom I had the pleasure to meet through my volunteer work is a Buddhist and also an activist in his community. He shared an article he recently read that might be of interest to this audience as well, i.e., “Should Buddhists Be Social Activists?” https://daily-philosophy.com/kidd-buddhism-social-activism-part-1

David Loy also calls that religion “Moneytheism”

I love the two questions....Trees and Activism....raises for me our creation in the natural world from deep Mother Earth roots to trunk, branches and fruit leaves and then back to Mother Earth....and activism as moving sentient beings and the needed ethical values of kindness. empathy, and compassion and the discernment required for optimal action understanding our common humanity and interdependence. So much to consider and ponder. the paradox of being separated. yet not separated, but one with nature and spirit. just a few thoughts as I listen intently to Davis and Chris. Thank you. / Charlie

I taught at a public school in WNY that had a “magnet program” for Haudenosaunee (aka, Iroquois) students and the connection that Buddism and Indigenous thinking that Chris Ives mentioned is what I was reflecting on a few different points in time during this event. Each day over the P.A. system at the Native American Magnet School-P.S. #19 different students would present the “Thanksgiving Address” which is a collection of gratitude/affirmations for various aspects of our natural world. The children’s book Giving Thanks by Chief Jake Swamp is one resource that was used for the students to read from.

Dr. Charles Barker (speaking) is Dallas coordinator of Charter for Compassion, an organisation that invites people to live compassionately and show it in action

Thanks Charles. Trees literally converse with me when I take the time to listen and rest with them. I am also sensing the connection with Indigenous ideas of interdependence with all life.

It is about being "for" something, rather than "against" something. as far as activism
