pervaded

I might not have felt so alone had I known how many people struggle with mental health issues in academia. A 2015 study at the University of California Berkeley found that 47% of graduate students suffer from depression, following a previous 2005 study that showed 10% had contemplated suicide. A 2003 Australian study found that that the rate of mental illness in academic staff was three to four times higher than in the general population, according to a New Scientist article. The same article notes that the percentage of academics with mental illness in the United Kingdom has been estimated at 53%.

But the stiff-upper-lip attitude that pervades the ivory tower can prompt many people who struggle with mental health problems to keep their problems hidden, while others simply accept depression as par for the course. And in the often-Darwinian culture among graduate students competing for a handful of professorial jobs, too many people assume that psychological problems are only for the weak.
God bless this obsession,

This chill that pervades the veins,
Rampant nightmares of things
too good to be true,
And your name on every
passing sigh,
Fires in stomachs,
Midnight “I miss you’s”,
A reach for the light of the moon,
Forever nursing memories,
The only warmth I still find,

God bless this obsession,
The very proof of a life well lived.

-Carter Thomas-

Resta viva.
Non accontentarti.
Porta i tuoi occhi a fare una passeggiata, appena puoi.
Non rinunciare ai tramonti, alla speranza.
Accetta la sofferenza. Accetta la felicità. Accetta la forza che a volte ti pervade.
Non lasciarti schiacciare da quello che è stato, da quello che non hai. Non farti portar via la gentilezza, la curiosità, la fantasia.
Continua a saltare nelle pozzanghere, se ti va.
Cambia pettinatura, cambia pelle. Cambia modo di vestirti e di truccarti, cambia abitudini, amicizie, luoghi e sogni.
Cambia spesso, ma lotta fino alla fine per non perderti.
Abbi cura di te,soprattutto quando tornerai ad amare. Abbi cura del modo in cui guardi gli altri.
Abbi cura del tuo amore, soprattutto adesso. Soprattutto quando non saprai a chi donarlo. Non gettarlo. Non sprecarlo. Tienilo da parte, ti servirà.
Piangi pure; piangi quando vuoi. Ricordati di farlo ogni tanto.
Ricorda che la cura, se davvero ne esiste una, sono le persone.
Non dimenticarti di loro. Delle loro mani. Dei loro guai. Delle loro storie piccole ma grandiose.
Non precluderti niente solo perché potrebbe distruggerti. Non sparire.
Resta, goditi lo spettacolo.
Resta coraggiosa.
Resta dolce.
Testa alta,
cuore in mano.

“The purpose of life is to ascend the six spinal centers, reinforcing the human consciousness progressively with greater and greater lights, until it is able to unite with the all-pervading, thousand-rayed brilliance in the highest center in the brain. This ascent of the consciousness through the spine may be achieved slowly through right actions and right thoughts. The yogi, however, chooses the quicker and more scientific method of meditation.

The internal consciousness of ordinary people operates only from the lumbar, sacral, and coccygeal centers that direct all material sensory perceptions and enjoyments. The divine lovers and celestial poets work from the heart center. The calm unshaken yogi operates from the cervical center. He who can feel his presence in the entire vibratory creation has awakened the medullary and Christ centers. The illumined yogi functions in the cerebral center of Cosmic Consciousness; he may be spoken of as an ascended yogi.”

This story is part of an occasional Code Switch series we’re calling “The Obama Effect.” The series explores how conversations about race and identity have evolved over the course of the Obama presidency. You can read more about the series here.

Earlier this spring I met Pablo Ramirez, a Mexican-American, first-generation college student at San Francisco State University. I had gone to the campus on a day when hundreds of students, including Ramirez, were rallying to increase funding for the school’s College of Ethnic Studies.

That college focuses on the histories and contributions of people of color in the U.S., and it was among several that administrators had said would have to get by with less money. But students were having none of it. At a time that anti-minority sentiment seems to be pervading so much of the nation’s political discourse, they argued that having a robust ethnic studies department was more important than ever.

i've finished that you

pervaded her heart not night
and men to lift if anybody care
his other kind was but this mortal off
delayed
her nest again
i could care

to see god made the firmament
present them
the meanings are he cheats as sweet to us any say
duties of the orchards spangles hung
debates if i starve

Silence is not something you become. You rejoin it.

Silence is already surrounding and pervading all places, all beings, and all moments.

Wherever you are, take a moment to be still, be chill, and be silent.

Honor it and it will honor you will blessings.

Love and War


Tell her.

But tell her how?

How do you just tell somebody that you accidentally fell so deeply in love with them, that they’ve pervaded into every corner of your life, become so completely entwined in your existence that if you lost them it would tear your world apart.

The Musical Accompaniment. Antonio Barzaghi-Cattaneo (Swiss, 1831-1922). Oil on canvas.

In his painting, Barzaghi-Cattaneo always remained a conservative, linked to an academic vision of painting, well away from the artistic revolution that pervaded Europe in the late 19th and the beginning of the 20th century. His most important works are distinguished by the play of light and vigorous brushwork, and with an innovative approach.

A Call To All Of The Awakened!

It’s time to remember who you are… Who you really are, and what this reality is that you’ve been born into…

-The Big Bang From A Philosophical Perspective: This reality is constructed of Duality, in order to have one thing you must have a comparative. To have light you must have dark, for up there must be down, right for wrong, we measure our world via a scale of polarity. For argument’s sake let’s assume that there was a beginning, that before there was something there was nothing. Within this nothingness there was nothing to imply something. There cannot be nothing without there being something to compare with nothing. In this moment nothing created something and this something was everything. In order to have something you must have an awareness to perceive this something, and this is where you were born, where consciousness was born.

There is one all pervading force that drives everything, and that is evolution. I’m not talking about monkeys evolving into homo-sapien-sapien but rather the general tendency of things to graduate from one state to a more efficient/preferable state. In order to understand the whole picture you must understand the concept of entropy. For you non-physicists out there entropy is a measurement of how consolidated/usable energy is at any one time. Something with a high state of entropy is quite disorganized and unusable while something with low entropy is highly organized and holds a higher level functionality. A glass of water would have a low state of entropy, you can drink it, water your plants, etc, but if this water were to spill on the floor and evaporate, though the water still exists it’s so disorganized and scattered you can’t use it and thus has a high state of entropy. Evolution is the force that pushes for the reduction of entropy in any form. You see our society, our technology, our social interactions, even nature pushing themselves to more efficient states of lowered entropy.

As you can imagine in this moment when something was created from nothingness and everything that was something was confined to an infinitesimally small point that the entire energy of the universe was in the highest state of entropy it could possibly be in. The force of evolution now takes effect, in order to reduce its entropy this everything, this consciousness must get to know itself, all it’s parts, and organize them. This can’t be done in its current state so the natural course of action was to expand. This could be seen as the explosion in the Big Bang theory. In order for expansion to occur there has to be a transition from one state to another, in this moment time and space were simultaneously created to measure, interpret, and understand the vast amounts of information(energy) contained within this everything.

-Who Am (I)?: You are it, you are the whole thing. You can imagine the universe as a single organism, and as observed in nature life begins as a single cell, multiplies, and over the course of time evolves into a beautiful multicellular creature. You yourself cannot manage all the complex chemical and electrical interactions in your body, it would be highly inefficient… This is why your biology consists of billions of cells, each one living its own life, reacting and analyzing its own immediate environment, the energy it is responsible for managing. But these cells as a whole form the being that is you, and in the same way we are all cells in this organism we call the Universe, God, Consciousness. We are all “I”, we all know we are “I”, and wherever there is life, wherever there is awareness, you are all of it. This is the oneness spoken of in Buddhist philosophy.

-What Is This Reality?: This reality is a learning lab, and a game that you are playing with yourself. You are not this fleshy body you call Timothy or Sarah, you are consciousness, awareness. Your body is merely a physical manifestion for you to interact with and experience the whole picture. You are the I(eye) of God playing one big game of pretend, where you pretend you are not God. Remember in order to have one thing you must have a comparative. In order to have the experience of godliness(wholeness) you must experience the opposite, and this is all part of the learning process.

We are all on our own paths of evolution, seeking all possible states of being, and like Darwinian evolution postulates, beneficial productive states continue on to evolve and reduce there entropy while inefficient unproductive states run their course before halting(extinction). You see you can’t make a mistake, you aren’t some lowly insignificant spec on this oddball planet that somehow spurned self aware beings. The entire universe is life. You are part of it and it is driving you, you are driving you, to explore your full potential. This life is just one of many in the grand experimental game of reality.

-The Main Message: Remember who you are, remember your absolute divinity. That the whole thing is you. The tree outside your window is just as much you as your fingernails. The whole game is pretending that it’s not. There’s no difference between what voluntarily happens in your life and the involuntary, in order to have a voluntary experience you must have the involuntary but it’s all one. Life is one big movie and you are all the actors, only you don’t know until you leave the stage. Therefore is no one to blame for your suffering but yourself. Consciousness is thought, everything is thought, and your life manifests itself from your thoughts. You have the power to create your world, you are doing it every second of every day unconsciously. This next step in your evolution is to become aware of your own power, to realize just how important you really are to the whole picture, and that all of reality comes from you.

“Where you are, what you call the here and now, is what the whole universe is doing…” “But you can only experience it one life at a time.”
- Alan Watts
