"Here we can call on the wisdom of one indigenous leader who, when asked how his tribe made decisions, said that they don't actually make decisions. Rather, they keep talking and wait for the obvious truth to emerge. The hopeful lesson of the Occupy movement in its infancy calls on us to try on this radical stance, both individually and collectively, by cultivating our own meditative attitude: standing by our values, staying focused on what matters, dropping our demands, cultivating friendly respect for those we disagree with and committing to seeing the truth -- not a provisional truth colored by our unexamined biases, but a truth so real that when we finally see it, we might have to call it obvious."
