Daily Quote and Video: Love, Power, and The Power of Love

This quote from Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., which senior Insight Meditation teacher Gina Sharpe shared when she guest lectured at IDP this year, reminds me what is making me so wary about participating in politics these days. When the current discourse includes love, it views love as a naive thing devoid of potency.

 

 

When the conversation turns to power, I can't really feel the love. I do particularly wish that progressives, which I consider myself, could be better at fusing the language of love with the language of power. The two are, after all, um, interdependent.

For Daily Video, why not remember the Power of Love? Huey Lewis, wrote a song not only perfectly cheesey, but also sort of dharmic in its own way. Hop in the delorean, kids.

Daily Quote:

 
"What is needed is a realization that power without love is reckless and abusive, and love without power is sentimental and anemic. Power at its best is love implementing the demands of justice, and justice at its best is power correcting everything that stands against love." ---Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

Useful information

Hi this is somewhat of http://my-littlesecret.com/ off topic but I was wanting to know if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with HTML. I'm starting a blog soon but have no coding know-how so I wanted to get guidance from someone with experience. Any help would be enormously appreciated!
