Agency AND Grace

     India's great religions have been criticized, even within India, but especially in the "pull-yourself-up-by-the-bootstraps" West, as being passive, resigned to destiny, going nowhere. Nevertheless, Eastern and Western religions alike recognize a mysterious unearned element, generally referred to as "grace," that seems essential for awakening into a new consciousness.
     Of course, we can actively collaborate with grace through "random acts of kindness," as well as through organized efforts such as Halifax, Nova Scotia's "Waves of Compassion" http://www.wavesofcompassion.ca/
