a world where we can live in harmony

Do you guys ever think there is a possibility that sensates may have abilities other than visiting and sharing?

Sun and Wolfgang

Michael J.Straczynski tweeted there’s something more that ties into season 2, but for some reason, it wasn’t explained in second season…which leaves us to wait until season 3, hoping they’ll explain it. But assuming that it is another ability sensate can have, wouldn’t it be crucial to Wolfgang’s rescue (or when the cluster faces other threats, etc.)?

Croome

Croome: Because our senses, including our common sense, are evolving.

Obviously, sapiens have gone through an evolution. So why can’t sensates? If sapians are evolving now, then I don’t see any reason why homo sensoriums can’t evolve as well.

Mystery Woman

Mystery woman: Trying to change the world only leads to suffering. All we can change is ourselves.

Riley: I don’t understand. Why can’t I see where you are?

Mystery woman: You may feel gravity without knowing how it works. There are forces acting upon every life that remain beyond our control or comprehension.

OK so here, we see a mysterious woman with flower/tree tattooed on her head (which I think it symbolizes all species – sapiens and sensoriums – are from same root and that we are meant to live in harmony) saying to Riley that it is us who have to change. I’m sure it contains several meanings, but one of them might be ‘there are more things we(sensates)’re able to do than we think’.

Also, Riley can’t visit her – which is something new. No visiting ever has been one sided. Mystery woman replies with more enigmatic words, but I think she’s saying is that there’s more to discover about homo sensoriums – how they control or improve their abilities.

It would be awesome to see hidden abilities sensates have, if there is one. Hopefully in season 3, you know.

Main pairing - Female Reader x Kim Jongdae/Chen
A mysterious group move into your apartment building and you find yourself drawn to them, one in particular… but is it safe? Who are they really?

< Previous | Next > 

‘Jongdae, you can’t just stay here. You need to sleep.’

You stirred at the sound of Yixing’s voice nearby, but your body didn’t move. Everything was still dark, and your muscles ached.

‘NO! Don’t make me leave!’

You felt your heart race at the sudden change of voice. It was Jongdae. You felt relief flood through your body; he was okay. You tried to move again, but you felt as if you were trying to move through thick tar-like treacle. Your eyelids were heavy, refusing to open.

‘I’m sorry,’ came Jongdae’s voice again, but calmer and a little shaky, ‘I can’t be away from her… not now.’

You felt your heart thump, please, you begged your body, let me wake up. But as you struggled with your comatose form, you froze. 

A voice was buzzing in your mind, a voice that wasn’t yours.

Satchitānanda, “Truth, Consciousness, Bliss"

After many incarnations, there comes a time when we grow dissatisfied with mere things, when experiences of this world render us empty. We yearn for a higher truth, a deeper understanding of life. When we begin to search sincerely for that experience, we have entered what the propelled state of the human heart.

That is, we are propelled by our inner dissatisfaction to seek something more than the superficial experiences and pursuits of the senses. In this state, we eventually find a spiritual teacher or teaching that can guide us the way to the infinite.

This world is not the same to all people. Each one lives in his little domain. Peace and harmony may reign in one person’s world where strife and restlessness in another’s. But whatever the circumstances of one’s environment, it consists of both an inner and an outer world. The outside world is the one in which your life engages in action and interaction.

The world inside of you determines your happiness or unhappiness.

Life Update

Well, hi everyone! 

I don’t know, I just browse through Tumblr thinking if I should come back to this beautiful blog right now or later on. I finally decided to kind of make everyone aware that I’m still here. Why did i disappear all of a sudden? Good question. My parents found out I was gay, they called me to discuss everything and it didn’t went particularly okay. I was crying, anxiety cursing through my body, I was scared, because I didn’t expect any of it. They really shook me with doubt and fear. So I thought: I LOVE sharing pictures and content throughout this blog but I really need to focus on my personal life. So I didn’t want to commit to something I wasn’t feeling so cheered up about doing. I went through a lot of doubt. I questioned myself daily, every time I got a new challenge in my head and it became a burden. When I thought I had everything figured out my mom or dad gave me another lecture/talk about my sexual orientation. I went backwards AGAIN. Questions I asked myself daily were: Who am I really? God do you really feel this way towards me? Am I ever going to be happy with myself? Am I doing something wrong? And so much further questioning. I think giving myself this space and time helped me figure out more things about myself and what I want and wish. I love who I love not for some kind of rebel attitude. I DON’T love who I love because I want to be “cool” or follow a “trend”.  I am not confused nor mistaken. I love who I love because I follow my dear heart. Because I feel free when I do. I feel like painting the world in a multicolour beat. I feel like dancing through the stars. I love who I love because I fell in love with a boy with a heart of gold and a soul of warmth and dreams. I want to stand tall. To embrace who I am in this world so full of hatred and unfairness. But I know we can make a better world. Where our ideals can fit beautifully with respect and LOVE. Where we can live in harmony. I believe in you. I care about you. I love you. I don’t know the path God will take me. I just know he loves and cares about me, you, US. That he has a huge loving plan were we can all be included. Greetings, it feels good to write to you guys. To express. Maybe nobody cares. Or maybe no one will read this far. But I hope I can bring brightness and hope to the dark and cold corners. That we can all work together and spread LOVE. LOVE IS LOVE. LOVE WINS. ALWAYS.

You're fcking disgusting, you can hate on whites for all the stuff they did years and years ago and that's fair enough. If we work together, though without prejudice, not letting the past go but celebrating a more peaceful future we can move forward and live in a loving caring world where we can all live in harmony. To actually kill out an entire race of people is fucking wrong you sick fuck, it doesn't solve anything it just reverses the issue.

Wake up and face reality. You’re the reason why whites are becoming extinct. You live in denial and hate to face what’s happening in life day to day.

“Infinity Falls” 2017

2018 will see the opening of a brand-new river rapids attraction at SeaWorld Orlando. Titled Infinity Falls, the attraction will take guests on a journey down a lost jungle river, past ancient civilizations, and down a 40 foot drop, the tallest of its kind in the world. It will also feature a water elevator, which will bring guests up to the top of the falls. In traditional SeaWorld fashion, the attraction will empty out into Harmony Village, where guests can learn about conservation and gain a better understanding of the world we live in.

Star Roving – Slowdive

Hey look, neo-liberal capitalism may be failing and crumbling around us, reality TV clowns are being inaugurated as fascist strongmen presidents and the world is hotter than ever, but thank goodness we live in an age where bands can reunite after 20 years and release great songs!  

Slowdive have followed My Bloody Valentine’s lead and dusted off their guitar pedals and they are back, gazing at their shoes like they were never gone. This is their first new music in 22 years but the sound still carries the ghosts of the early 90s and “the scene that celebrates itself”.  Star Roving is an aptly titled piece of celestial beauty, sweet and shimmering,  melodic and vast. The touchstones of the band’s halcyon Souvlaki days are all there – the vocal harmonies, the murmured indistinct lyrics about flying and warmth, the guitars! – but the song works like a complete retrospective of their career, which makes it a great entrance point for newcomers, and an absolute delight for long time fans.

The world is not static, it’s made new over and over again. But we tend to live the same patterns in a loop, loving the same way, wrestling the same demons, the same dynamics playing out around us again and again. Untangling every moment and decision that led us to where we are now can make fate feel concrete, inescapable. But our world is not fixed, it’s constantly reemerging, and we can change it into whatever we want. - Taylor Rice, Local Natives

We at HelloGiggles love interspecies friendships between animals. I mean, who doesn’t adore seeing a kitten cuddling up next to a baby owl? Or a dog who is besties with a lamb? Not only are these precious combos fun to look at it, but they give us hope that living creatures can overcome their differences and live together in harmony. I mean, in a world where a cat can nap with an owl, maybe we can all get along? Right?

In the spirit of world peace, let us introduce you to the cutest, furriest ambassador of all things warm and fuzzy. Behold, Bob the Golden Retriever.

Okay, but no joke, here’s what I want from Sombra.

I want Sombra to be an omnic, and to pretty much be the polar opposite of Zenyatta in her reacting to the way Omnic’s are treated.

I want her to be the sort of character that would be seen as a freedom fighter against oppression, something like the Anonymous of the Overwatch universe.

She wants to get back at humans for causing so much greif, and for not being responsible for their actions. “You made us, you gave us the will to feel and think, and you’re all too immature to take responsibility over the fact that you made us.

I want Sombra to be powerful with code, figuring out secrets and blackmail, but I want her to be insecure that if she ever loses that power she’ll be gunned down and beaten in an alleyway for being born an Omnic.

I want Sombra to feel sorry for Zenyatta, a peaceful omnic living in a world where she feels that peace isn’t an option.

“Why must you do this, my fellow omnic, we must learn to live in harmony with humans.”

I wish it were that easy, Zenyatta. I wish it were that easy.

GIVE ME THE INSECURE ANARCHY OMNIC, BLIZZARD.

Edit: God now all I can think of is the line from “Love Like You”

“I always thought I might be bad, now i’m sure that it’s true. ‘Cause I think you’re so good, and i’m nothing like you.”

I’m feeling quite sad today reflecting on the state of our world. There is such a deep and alarming need to awaken people’s empathy. People’s ability to recognize the humanity in every single human being around them and the fact that the only race is the human race. We may be different shades, we may be different genders, we may have different views and beliefs but we are the SAME. When you look up into the sky and see something flying, you don’t think about calling it a bird, it just is one. Whether it’s blue or green or multicolored, it is a bird that needs to fly. We are all humans with the need to survive and love. We need to STOP this division, creating labels and groups that target our differences. We need to stop dwelling on them and start building on our commonality. Recognize that it is just WRONG to stereotype, persecute, oppress, murder, (the atrocities are endless) HUMAN BEINGS. I have seen this trend about saving dogs from being murdered in China. There’s a petition with millions of signatures recognizing this as an atrocity and acting on it and raising awareness for this to stop. When are we going to start taking that same initiative with one another? When are we going to recognize that what happened in Charleston was a BLATANT act of violence fueled by an institutionalized entitlement and privilege. That man was not crazy, he thought and was taught that it is ok to think of an African American as less than himself. He is a product of RACISM. When is a Law Enforcement official, considered an esteemed member of society because of how honorable his job is, going to be indicted for doing the most dishonorable thing you can do to another human being (murder)? Where are the petitions and the voices surpassing the oppressed? WHERE IS EVERYONE’S SOUL AND HUMAN EMPATHY. Why do we blind ourselves. Why are we scared to change it. We can change it. We have lost the ability to recognize that a living being is precious. That life is precious and short. And just because someone doesn’t look or think like you, or express themselves in this world the way you think is proper does NOT give you the right to dehumanize and oppress them. We need to do better. by laurenjauregui

Did you ever just wake up and wipe the crust from your eyes, only to unlock your phone and see a beautiful picture of the man named Phil Lester? It’s like revealing true beauty in the world; living proof that there’s hope for us. He is an adorable cinnamon bun too pure for this world. Just don’t eat him, I’m pretty sure that’s cannibalism. Phil is why I wake up every single day with hope, hope that one day we can all come together as a species and live in peace and harmony under his ruling. He would be such a gentle king, wouldn’t he? My dream would be to be right beside his throne with Daniel James Howell. Daniel would lead me into a world where violence doesn’t exist, only the freshest memes. We would smoke memes all day, until he eventually starts to grow fond of me. Going down, he unzips my pants delicately. As he slides down he can no longer hold back his feelings and begins to lick my - 🎺🎺🎺🎺JOHN CEEENAAAA🎺🎺🎺🎺

“This latest edition of the Living Planet Report is not for the faint-hearted. One key point that jumps out is that the Living Planet Index (LPI), which measures more than 10,000 representative populations of mammals, birds, reptiles, amphibians and fish, has declined by 52 per cent since 1970.

Put another way, in less than two human generations, population sizes of vertebrate species have dropped by half. These are the living forms that constitute the fabric of the ecosystems which sustain life on Earth – and the barometer of what we are doing to our own planet, our only home. We ignore their decline at our peril.

We are using nature’s gifts as if we had more than just one Earth at our disposal. By taking more from our ecosystems and natural processes than can be replenished, we are jeopardizing our very future. Nature conservation and sustainable development go hand-in-hand. They are not only about preserving biodiversity and wild places, but just as much about safeguarding the future of humanity – our well-being, economy, food security and social stability – indeed, our very survival.

In a world where so many people live in poverty, it may appear as though protecting nature is a luxury. But it is quite the opposite. For many of the world’s poorest people, it is a lifeline. Importantly though, we are all in this together. We all need nutritious food, fresh water and clean air – wherever in the world we live.

Things look so worrying that it may seem difficult to feel positive about the future. Difficult, certainly, but not impossible – because it is in ourselves, who have caused the problem, that we can find the solution. Now we must work to ensure that the upcoming generation can seize the opportunity that we have so far failed to grasp, to close this destructive chapter in our history, and build a future where people can live and prosper in harmony with nature.”

- Overview of the “Living Planet Report 2014

Today is marked by the sadly familiar feelings and sentiments that come following an unambiguous catastrophe. 

Sadness. Anger. Confusion. Accusations. Fears. 

What we know is that today was the stage for the deadliest mass murder in US history. This tragedy was made even worse by the fact that the victims were targeted for their LGBT community. 

Age after age, great souls have come to this world to teach us to live in love, to live in harmony, and to find the peace that can be shared together. Yet has the world changed? No. And still those great souls come and encourage us with their love and wisdom. 

There were many victims this day. Let us not become one of them. Instead, let us be servants. 

We pray:

Let those wounded by violence and hate find healing. 

May those wounded by fear and suffering find relief. 

We seek clarity where there is confusion. 

We endeavor for love when there seems none. 

May all beings in all worlds know peace, freedom, and happiness. 

Today and in the days to come, I suggest you avoid being sucked into the circus of media and opinion. 

Be love and strength. Give love and strength. 

The rest is up to you. 

Namaste

Keep Dreaming

“Keep Dreaming”

I dream of you and I on silent nights.
I dream of love and peaceful skies.
I dream of peace on Earth without those crimes,
That shatter lives and ruin times.

I dream of friends and holding hands.
I dream of ways to understand.
I dream of those where at command,
Can expand beyond what they had planned.

I dream of a world where no one falters.
You are free to worship at an alter.
Everyone has worth with things to offer.
A burning sun and crystal waters.

I dream that no one feels alone.
I dream of acceptance in broken homes,
With a pathway marked with stepping stones.
To lead you where you need to go.

I dream at night when I can see,
How I’d want the world to be.
A harmonious globe, do you agree?
Won’t you run away with me?
But things are not so bad as of now,
We are all getting by somehow.
We are all doing the best we can,
In our lives with hearts and hands,
But that doesn’t mean we can’t dream,
Of how we’d like our worlds to be.
