Waking up with a heart full of love and gratitude for all the amazing experiences I've been blessed with in my life will always feel better than being sad they are over.
It's my job to live each moment here and now. Not dwell on the old. Just here as it is. And that is my peace.
Real Talk. The Highs & Lows. You see the pics that capture the beauty of a moment in time. But there's more to us than that. We're not perfect humans. We fight. We struggle. We learn. We grow. This is the longest relationship I've ever been in and in many ways I'm emotionally immature. Sometimes I catch myself but sometimes I don't notice what I'm doing and I end up hurting the person I love the most with my stubbornness. I always wanted to find someone not just to love and be with but to grow and grow old with. If you have someone you truly love. Regardless of whether you're in a good place or not let them know that you love them and Never hold back on speaking your truth ❤️🙏🏾 PS: #freethenipple 😋
When your body says something, listen to it. When your mind is burnt out, respect that. We can either work with or against ourselves; you choose which route you’d like to take. #morningstretch#listentoyourbody

What is Cosmic Consciousness? A necessary warning to students is this: "Do not think you are spiritually advanced just because you have heard a lecture or read a book on cosmic consciousness, or because you fancy yourself to have attained it, or even because you have experienced astral visions (entertaining and enlightening, but still in the domain of matter)." You can know all matter to be thought only when you are able to withdraw life force and consciousness to the medullary plane, and can enter the spiritual eye—doorway to the highest states of consciousness. ...Entering the door of the spiritual eye*, he ascends to Christ consciousness (union with God's omnipresence in all creation) and cosmic consciousness (union with God's omnipresence in and beyond all creation). * The spiritual eye is the single eye of intuition and omnipresent perception at the Christ (Kutastha) center (ajna chakra) between the eyebrows, which is directly connected by polarity with the medulla center. The deeply meditating devotee beholds the spiritual eye as a ring of golden light encircling a sphere of opalescent blue, and at the center, a pentagonal white star. Micro-cosmically, these forms and colors epitomize, respectively, the vibratory realm of creation (Prakriti, Cosmic Nature); the universal intelligence of God in creation (Kutastha Chaitanya; Krishna or Christ Consciousness); and the vibrationless Spirit beyond all creation (Brahman). In deep meditation the devotee's consciousness penetrates the spiritual eye into the three realms epitomized therein. The man of cosmic consciousness, never feeling himself as limited to a body or as reaching only to the brain, or only to the cerebral-lotus light of a thousand rays, instead feels by true intuitive power the ever-bubbling Bliss that dances in every particle of his little body, and in his big Cosmic Body of the universe, and in his absolute nature as one with the Eternal Spirit beyond manifested forms.
Re these videos and images stirring up in the US.
Historical wounds will never heal with bandaids.
I do not like talking about race much more than many of you. We all have our reasons. My reason is rooted more in the shame of being white when everyone else around me was sun kissed and melanin rich. So funky and fresh and beautiful. I always thought brown skin is just heavenly... When I was younger I felt like I was lacking something. I did what I could to make myself a little less white... learn how to speak other languages, dance, travel, make brown babies. Easy enough growing up in Africa.
The shame of sharing skin tone with colonizers just made it all worse.
I am a woman who fully loves herself now, but having to check the white box on a document is still unsettling. I know we all grow up with internal racial dialogue that we don't necessarily share with others.
White pride is something I have never felt.
I grew up the minority, and I have lived a beautiful diverse life, which is why I have a hard time wrapping my brain around this "white pride". I am also among the privileged (read: my silence will not hurt me) which means I have to say and do what I can to help speak up for people whose lives may depend on me and people like me.
I don't really know the right way, so I am just going to do what feels right now. My words and method will be imperfect, but silence is toxic and clearly living my life with love vibes is not enough so.... You ever notice how good America is at slapping bandaids on things it does not want to look at? Our culture literally teaches us this from a very young age.
We have come to a point in our history where this president we have is just exposing everything. Bandaids are falling off. It's ugly. I am quite sure it's going to get uglier. There is a whole lot of ugly to be cleaned up. Donald Trump is exposing the ugly.
It is time to formulate some new medicine and start dealing with these race issues stinking up the streets. Stinking up our hearts.
To all the Good white people... Don't be silent and expect this to go away! It won't.

Sun setting on another weeks end. A week that has heightened paranoia and fear in our minds and perpetrated a growing sense of disillusionment in our hearts.
As I have said before, I will not be silenced on my social media with the threat of judgement or feeling as if its not my place to speak.
All I know is this.
People in power right now, people of influence are adamant on feeding our focus into what separates us, segregates us and makes us different from each other.
We have to speak up, we have to speak out and we have a right to be heard. Silence is not golden. Silence will be our downfall.
We need to be reminded of all the things we share, those pure human qualities not diluted by religion or politics.
