If we stop getting distracted, we will stop destroying.

‘It’s not just the weapons of mass destruction that worry me. It’s also the weapons of mass distraction: unconscious consumerism, self-avoidant behavior, misplaced aggression, substitute gratifications. In fact, if we embody the sacred purpose encoded in the bones of our being, we will lay down our arms and open our hearts to humanity. When the heart is unfettered and alight, the guns drop away. If we stop distracting, we will stop destroying.’
