Compassion to All, Even to Those we Disagree With. 

IMG_20170928_094217970Compassion sets us free of hatred. Compassion heals the wounds of the past. Compassion shows love to those who have hurt.

I truly believe compassion is needed right now more than ever. Compassion for ourselves. Compassion for the environment and all living creatures. Compassion for those who are in so much pain they choose to hurt others.

I want to make it clear that I don’t condone the behavior of white nationalists; their values are the polar opposite of mine. They are attached to an identity that is built on hatred, fear, and separatism while I choose to believe in peace, love, and interconnectivity. This is why I choose to have compassion and love for them. It would be easier to hate them and want them to disappear from society but this would go directly against my values.

We can show them the other path, the path of inter-connectivity, peace, compassion, and love. The path of the peaceful warrior. Like a lighthouse directing ships out of the darkness, we can show them compassion to lead them out of the darkness of hatred and fear.

With Aloha,

Jonathan Hoffman

My intention is to inspire a simple, healthy, and authentic way of life. I'm 28 years old and live on Maui. I decided last year to leave the corporate world to live a simpler life. Hawaii was the perfect place to do so. I'm spiritual but not religious. I enjoy meditation, long walks, working out, and enjoying home cooked vegan food. My life is my message. With Aloha, Johnny Hoffman
