StartL is NOT committed to Peace, or to Justice... but rather, to YOU, to your Joy, and to the elimination of needless Suffering.

Jim,

By the way, don't feel bad - everyone gets this wrong about me.  Contrary to your email below, I am NOT committed to peace (or justice, as most people say of me) - no one could find the motivation to do what I do if they were committed to Peace - our nervous systems are not built that way. 

I am committed, out of Love, to You; to my Entire Human Family; to the elimination of Your needless Suffering; to the Fulfillment of your Joy; out of Universal Love for you, for My Joy, and Yours.  :-)

And I don't want "Peace" for me, or for anyone, at least not in the way most of us mean Peace - the absence of tension.  NO, I want folks consumed, constantly on the edge of being  overwhelmed with Creative Tension to CREATE Joy, and eliminate needless Suffering among our Human Family -  because that process of Creating Joy, and Eliminating Suffering for our World Family is the One and Only source of Joy for us personally, the ultimate human experience.  That is the simple truth of our nervous systems.

Your brother,

Start

ps:  Yes, I am making a big deal of this, because getting this right is our entire hope, as individuals, and as a Human Family.  And we are almost out of time.
pps:  Teresa of Calcutta captured this enormously in one of her final talks in DC ( http://jesusgodgoodetcnjay.blogspot.com/2007/06/teresa-as-you-do-unto-least-of-these.html ), as she was explaining the Peace that she and Jesus live for (me too):  'My Peace I leave with you, My Peace I give unto you.' He came not to give the peace of the world which is only that we don't bother each other. He came to give the Peace of heart which comes from loving - from doing good to others.

Subject: SHORT FILM IDEA

Start Loving - 

Greetings! My name is Jim and I live in your old town of West Chester, PA. I recently read the article in the Philadelphia Inquirer about your vigil in Lafayette Park and was moved by your commitment to peace. 

When I read the article about you and your vigil, I thought this would be a good subject for a short film. I was wondering if anyone has already made a short piece on your efforts.

My thought is this piece would contain interviews with you about your devotion to peace, your inspirations, your encounters with tourists. 

I've been a television producer for twenty years, working in news and then at QVC. I left a few years ago and am now writing short stories, none of which are published yet. I own professional video equipment and have some friends who may volunteer time to help shoot and edit. If nothing else, I think we could produce a piece you could link to from your web site. 

Please let me know your initial thoughts. If appropriate, I'd be happy to talk via phone or set up time to travel to DC and meet with you. I look forward to your thoughts. 

Thanks, 

Jim

Never think that a committed individual cannot change the world. It is the only thing that ever has.
