Conscious Resistance

Thich Nhat Hanh has some good insights into conscious resistance.

“Mindfulness must be engaged  Once we see that something needs to be done, we must take action. Seeing and action go together. Otherwise, what is the point in seeing?”

“Nonviolence is not a set of techniques that you can learn with your intellect,” he goes on to say. “Nonviolent action arises from the compassion, lucidity and understanding you have within.” – Thich Nhat Hanh, At Home in the World
