There is a presence, a silence, a stillness which is here by itself. There is no doer of it, no creator of this stillness. It is simply here in you, with you. It is the fragrance of your own self. There is nothing to do about this, it is naturally present. This fragrance of peace, this spaciousness, it is the fragrance of your own being.
An interview I did for Refinery29 where I talk about my feminism, ain’t shit allies, and give advice to all the baby warriors in the making.
“There is no one way, or correct way, to be an activist. Everyone’s activism looks different, and that doesn’t mean that one is better than the other. We all have different approaches on how we combat, deal, and respond to oppressive structures.
The notion that you need to abide by respectability politics or that you have to meet certain criteria — that’s usually drenched in ableism, classism, ageism — is bullshit. There are no qualifications that you need to meet in order to be an activist.
You don’t have to be a scholar or be a certain age to leave your mark on the world. Just keep pushing and fighting for what you believe in, in whatever way that looks [like] for you. Acknowledge that you don’t know everything, and actively seek out knowledge.
Check your own privileges, toxic behaviors, and be open to critique. Know that it is okay to check out sometimes, both mentally and physically. Speaking out, writing, protesting, even just reading about injustice daily is mentally exhausting and oftentimes triggering.
Taking time to yourself and practicing self-care is important. Our health is important. Lastly, be as vulnerable as you possibly can. Do not let the weight of this work make you emotionless and cold. Vulnerability is a strength, and it is empowering. It helps us stay true to ourselves. And what is more revolutionary than our truth?”
1 in 68 children in the US has autism spectrum disorder according to the CDC. But what happens when those children grow up? They will join millions of autistic adults who are usually ignored and sometimes spoken about in crude, whispered stereotypes.
By learning about and sharing these common myths, you’re helping to end the stigma that autistic people face daily. Thank you.
Your life, all of your life, is your path to awakening. By resisting or not dealing with its challenges, you stay asleep to Reality. Pay attention to what life is trying to reveal to you. Say yes to its fierce, ruthless, and loving grace.
This pattern is a great tool brought forth to help one adapt to changes occurring within, due to the process of DNA recoding (lightbody activation/reconfiguration). Every person is experiencing this to some degree, as the Earth continues to shift. It allows one to be more in their body and creates a smoother transition, reducing and/or eliminating subsequent discomfort (ie headaches, food intolerances, body aches, emotional swings, etc).
Love should be like breathing. It should be just a quality in you – wherever you are, with whomsoever you are, or even if you are alone, love goes on overflowing from you. It is not a question of being in love with someone – it is a question of being love.
You must have a room, or a certain hour or so a day, where you don’t know what was in the newspapers that morning, you don’t know who your friends are, you don’t know what you owe anybody, you don’t know what anybody owes to you. This is a place where you can simply experience and bring forth what you are and what you might be. This is the place of creative incubation. At first you may find that nothing happens there. But if you have a sacred place and use it, something eventually will happen.
