from Russ – This is one of the most brilliant modern day speeches to be
heard and worth sharing with anyone and everyone. You can be sure
that–along with Ron Paul–Congressman Dennis Kucinich will
certainly be one of the few Senators or Congressmen–in the
USA left remaining–after the MASS ARRESTS occur. I too
believe in and have utilized “possibility thinking” often,
for then truly nothing is impossible! I hope you enjoy what you
read here as much as I do, for this is the kind of thinking, and these are the
kind of “new leaders” that will soon be staffing governments of our
Earth, after MASS ARRESTS take place and we move swiftly into our forthcoming
Golden Age on Earth!

Kucinich’s Commencement Speech at American University of

Highness, Vice President and Prime Minister of the United Arab Emirates and
Ruler of Dubai, Sheikh Mohammad bin Rashid Al Maktoum; Members of the Royal
Families of the United Arab Emirates; Dr. Lance de Masi, President of American
University in Dubai, Mr. Elias Bou Saab, Executive Vice President, Members of
the Board, Members of the Faculty of American University of Dubai, Esteemed
Officials, Parents and Sponsors, Students, Alumni and Friends and especially
you, our dear Honored Graduates:
the great honor of addressing this esteemed gathering upon an occasion of
singular importance in the lives of each and every one of you. This day
announces you are prepared. The journey which brought you here has conferred
upon you a commencement to the future of your dreams.
you ascend this stage you are confidently passing through a portal in the time
and space of your life, presenting yourself to the world as a person of
accomplishment, as an individual prepared to tap the transformative power of
this moment which brings to bear every talent and ability you have developed,
pouring it into the moment when you present yourself at the door of
opportunity, the moment which is called NOW. The NOW which
contemplates that the past, the present, and the future exist simultaneously,
the power of NOW as it connects with eternity, your timeless self which finds
its power in expression of self recreation, self actualization. “Come my
friends,” wrote the poet Tennyson, ” ’tis not too late to seek a newer world.”
new world being born in the moment. The NOW which comes again and again and
again in each and every day forward as you watch for it, recognize it, be
mindful of the possibility it presents, be grateful for its imminent unfolding
potential. The NOW which bids you to think, to speak, to act, to challenge, to
create, to change. The NOW which declares that years of preparation have come
to meet the seedling of a single moment. The NOW which whispers: “Do not spill
a single seed.” The NOW which makes joyous the challenge of venturing forth in
faith. The NOW which bids you, “Come, you are ready!” And reminds you there is
no time to waste. The NOW which unveils your deepest potential when you summon
the courage to knock upon an unfamiliar door. The NOW which has been secretly
awaiting your arrival.
you seek, is seeking you,” wrote the poet Rumi. The NOW which waits for
you to embrace its endless possibilities, its extraordinary beauty of presence.
Yours, the restless quest of the human soul for true purpose, for a place in
the world, for life, for love, for a spiritual home all awaits your attention,
your touch, your gaze. Your place in the scheme of things is unfolding and even
resistance can be your friend as you align with the time signature with which
the hand of destiny inscribes your name. Be relentless in pursuit of
excellence. Though your reach exceeds your grasp every moment, “What’s a heaven
for?” asked the poet Browning.
know? From my earliest, I heard my life’s drummer banging out a rapid tempo, a
quick march to college, to work, to public life, all at the same time, twenty
years old working two jobs, going to school, running for city council. When I
put my ear to the ground I could hear the heart of the world beating and I
rushed excitedly to embrace it fully, no apprenticeships, only the experience
of trying and failing, trying and succeeding, climbing the mountains outside or
the mountains within, looking up, walking up, running up one path, then
another, then still another, sometimes pausing as the crowd passed me by. Then,
a new moment, sensing a new possibility, stepping out into the crowd, coursing
with it, stepping briskly to meet it, to embark upon a new destination, a new
life, the unfolding of each and every day: I chose a career in
public service while I was still in college in Cleveland, Ohio, and was elected
America’s youngest Mayor at age 31.
Congress five times in a period of twenty-five years before I was elected. I know
what it is to try and to fail. Do not fear failure. Let failure be your
friend. It prepares you for what you desire to achieve and you arrive at
your new destination with growing beauty and wisdom, thanking your friend for
graduates, the world needs you. I know how important you are. The raw, kinetic,
intellectual and spiritual power here from one hundred countries can save our
planet from destruction.
constantly being told that there is nothing we can do about war, nothing we can
do about global climate change, nothing we can do about poverty. Those who
accept the self-fulfilling prophecies of doom may have a stake in the status
quo or, fearing a new order, delay change. Life, however, is not inert. The
human heart is not inert. Its rhythms excite to the call of the future. The
soul is not inert. Its eyes see the future.
Bernard Shaw wrote in Back to Methuselah “You see things and say ‘Why’? I
dream things that never were; and I say, ‘Why not’?” He spoke to the
capacity of vision, of possibility thinking, of the
certainty that life is a profoundly creative experience, an expression of the
workings of the mind, the heart and the soul — the nonphysical, spiritual world
which sanctifies the physical world. Ideas come through our senses, bathing in
a world of dreams, imagination, the magical, mysterious province of poets and
prophets, inventors and painters, the realm of Michelangelo’s Creation of Adam
where man receives from the divine the spark of life.

“Pillars of Creation,” that place in deep space where stars are born. Quantum
physicists have identified gluon particles which exist in interstitial space,
the space between the spaces, the unseen element of our physical universe which
holds together the world with the primal energy of the Big Bang.
back and forth upon the bridge between spirit and matter, at large in a
physical universe, we breathe in the eternal spiritual sustenance. Inspired, we
fling our dreams back into the physical world and create islands in the sea,
buildings which reach to the heavens, new structures in society, and new ways
of living. Possibility thinking is a science grounded in old truths. It is the
capacity to call forth new outcomes.
share with you a few examples from my own experience. Again and again in my
public career I have confronted circumstances where I was told there was
nothing I could do about a given condition: a city electric system sold to a
giant private utility under indecent conditions. “Nothing you can do,” said my
top advisors. I saw something else, organized a civic movement and a three year
struggle resulted in regaining for the people of my community a light system
which recently observed its 100th anniversary. Two hospitals were to be closed.
“Forget it,” I was told. There is nothing you can do. I saw another
possibility. Creative legal action ensued, the community rallied, hospitals
were saved one still stands. A steel mill which provided thousands of jobs was
about to be closed. Again I was told, “there is nothing you can do.” Long story
short, we organized the community, intervened in court, stopped the shutdown of
the mill long enough for a buyer to emerge and that mill today is the largest
integrated steel mill in the world.
practical physics to civic involvement and action. Look
deeply into the appearances of things. Deeper within is another possibility.
Envision it, call it forward, act upon it, drawing upon that same
elemental energy which comes from where the eternal first touched us and where
we touched the eternal, where stars are born.
have learned from experience is this — when you see a condition you desire to
see change, when you seek to make something happen and you are told it is not
possible — that may be exactly the place to put your energy, to change the
outcome. When you do, people will say a miracle occurred. We live in a world
where miracles are waiting to be welcomed.
brings me to a thought I would like to share with you, my fellow citizens of
the world; We have inherited a world where war is dropped on our doorstep and we
are asked to adopt it as our own. We are told deadly force must be used to change people’s
conduct. Violence to stop the violence, war to prevent war, war to end war.
When we believe war is inevitable, we come to accept the self-fulfilling
prophecy of war. War happens. We wonder why.
call forth from this world which is so fraught with fear and foreboding that
which is beautiful and glorious, a new possibility, a new thinking, a new
physics, if you will, of peace. We must do it with courage. We must do it in
fulfillment of salaam, the peace which comes from the unseen, the peace which
comes from the heart, the peace which comes from our collective yearning, the
peace which comes from an awareness that the world is one. That all people are
interconnected, interdependent, one with the human family, one with the world,
one with the spirit, one with the divine.
inevitable. Peace is inevitable if we desire to call it forward, if we
approach it as a science. I speak of peace not simply as the absence of war, but as a
practice of the science of human relations, as a capacity of human evolution
and human development. But if we call peace forward from the unseen we must name it, we
must give it structure, we must prepare for it a place to exist – a space to
breathe, to be nurtured – to flower, so that it can be appreciated as an
expression of that divine spark of creation.
of the unfolding potential of nature, the poet Lowell celebrated
the month of June: “Every clod, [or piece of earth], feels a stir of might,
an instinct within it that reaches and towers, and groping blindly above it for
light, climbs to a soul in grass and flowers.” His
poem was about the search for the Holy Grail, a sacred vessel said to contain
drops of the blood of Christ. Peace is a Holy Grail and the quest
for peace is empowered by thoughts of peace, words of peace and actions for
peace and attainment of peace. It is a temporal question. It
is also a spiritual journey: “Wherewith Allah guideth all who
seek His good pleasure to ways of peace and safety, and leadeth them out of
darkness, by His will, unto the light, guideth them to a path that is
straight.” — Qur’an 5:16

proposal exists; I brought it to the United States Congress
two months before 9/11. In its simplest expression, it seeks to
develop an organized approach to make the daily work of our nation engage our
top social and economic scientists to deal with the root causes of domestic
violence, spousal abuse, child abuse, gang violence, gun violence, violence
against gays, and racial violence. It would develop skills for non-violent
conflict resolution on a domestic level, as well as internationally, where such
a ministry would be prepared to assist to ameliorate the causes of violence
inherent in poverty, lack of access to food, water, shelter and the instability
caused by environmental disasters.

education within every culture and within each government to construct a world
where we learn to settle differences by tapping the spiritual principles of

wealth and cultures of sustainability.

vision be realized for creating new structures for peace? I was reading a
speech given in Dubai in 2007 by His Highness, Sheikh Mohammad bin Rashid
Al Maktoum, observing the challenges facing his new organization, the
Foundation His Highness created. He quoted a friend: “… in this Foundation
you are like one ploughing the sea. The challenge is huge; the gap of knowledge
in most of the Arab and Islamic countries is bottomless. There is a lot of talk
about building communities of knowledge, but little action. The pit
is too wide to be seamed, so why should you weary yourself over this
time when the technology of destruction and the capacity of human
destructiveness is so great, this is exactly the time to create
a common global effort to build communities of peace, to
provide structures in every country to help peace issue forth and
flourish. I, too, believe that if we will make of human development a new
art, we will set our eyes to the distant horizon and plough the seas with
wondrous effect. We can then lift up our eyes to the heavens and, with our
imagination, with joyous abandon, plough the stars, and a thundering universe
will burst forth with new possibilities and we will make heaven on earth.
