Buddhism Day by Day: We Must be Realist in our Brains While Keeping the Flame of Idealism Burning in our Heats

“The noted pacifist scholar Johan Galtung tells young people, ‘We must be realist in our brains while keeping the flame of idealism burning in our heats.’ Both of these — to see the world as it is and how it could be — are essential to reform. A firm hold on reality should not entail being swamped by or resting easy in the status quo. To pioneer uncharted ways requires that people today keep the lamp of optimism lit.”
