Solidarity with the poor is not the same as empathy. Many people feel sorry for the poor or identity with their suffering yet do nothing to alleviate it. All too often people of privilege engage in forms of spiritual materialism where they seek recognition of their goodness by helping the poor. And they proceed in the efforts without changing... - http://wess.tumblr.com/post...

Walked here this morning between the rain showers. As we hiked through fields of tall wet grass, the trail lined with wild raspberry canes just setting fruit, the calls of summer birds filling the air, I was reminded of this lovely poem by Mary Oliver:
 
Walking to Oak-Head Pond, and
 Thinking of the Ponds I Will Visit in the
 Next Days and Weeks

What is so utterly invisible
 as tomorrow?
 Not love,
 not the wind,
 
not the inside of stone.
 Not anything.
 And yet, how often I’m fooled-
 I’m wading along
 
in the sunlight-
 and I’m sure I can see the fields and the ponds shining
 days ahead-
 I can see the light spilling
 
like a shower of meteors
 into next week’s trees,
 and I plan to be there soon-
 and, so far, I am
 
just that lucky,
 my legs splashing
 over the edge of darkness,
 my heart on fire.
 
I don’t know where
 such certainty comes from-
 the brave flesh
 or the theater of the mind-
 
but if I had to guess
 I would say that only 
 what the soul is supposed to be
 could send us forth
 
with such cheer
 as even the leaf must wear
 as it unfurls
 its fragrant body, and shines
 
against the hard possibility of stoppage-
 which, day after day,
 before such brisk, corpuscular belief,
 shudders, and gives way.
