Who made the world?
Who made the swan, and the black bear?
Who made the grasshopper?
This grasshopper, I mean-
the one who has flung herself out of the grass,
the one who is eating sugar out of my hand,
who is moving her jaws back and forth instead of up and down-
who is gazing around with her enormous and complicated eyes.
Now she lifts her pale forearms and thoroughly washes her face.
Now she snaps her wings open, and floats away.
I don’t know exactly what a prayer is.
I do know how to pay attention, how to fall down
into the grass, how to kneel down in the grass,
how to be idle and blessed, how to stroll through the fields,
which is what I have been doing all day.
Tell me, what else should I have done?
Doesn’t everything die at last, and too soon?
Tell me, what is it you plan to do
with your one wild and precious life?
—  “The Summer Day” by Mary Oliver
When you look in the mirror, what do you see? Do you see the real you, or what you have been conditioned to believe is you? The two are so, so different. One is an infinite consciousness capable of being and creating whatever it chooses, the other is an illusion imprisoned by its own perceived and programmed limitations.
—  David Icke

“In the sky there are always answers and explanations for everything: every pain, every suffering, joy and confusion.”

Don’t tell me to forget about slavery when blacks are still being killed without consequences or repercussions. Don’t tell me to remember 9/11 when soldiers are still over in the Middle East killing people. Don’t tell me to weep for those white marines who just died when they have invaded another country. Don’t tell me to weep for the mostly white children of the Sandy Hook shooting, when you don’t weep for blacks kids unjustly killed.

Do you ever get those moments when you first meet someone and both of you know that you’re destined for something great? And the best part is, you both know the other feels it too, just from the twinkle you put in the others eye.
