man, sometimes i get really teary-eyed when i think about how deeply raava must understand the scope of human life, the value and the wonder of it

like. she literally experienced every single moment of every single one of the avatar’s lifetimes, she knew all of their flaws and insecurities and fears

but she also knew all of their strengths, their hopes, their kindnesses

and she felt each of them go through everything

every single loss (ummi’s death, sozin’s betrayal, the air nomad genocide), every single bright spot (defeating chin the conquerer, meeting katara, winning a pro-bending match)

every single person and animal and spirit that the avatar has ever met

every single feeling of loneliness and fear and hope and love

raava understands how it is to be male and female and everything in between

she understands how it is to be born as a member of the aristocracy, as a street rat, as a country bumpkin

she understands how it is to grow up in the fire nation, the earth kingdom, the water tribes, the air temples

she understands how it is to be five years old, and ten and twenty and fifty, a hundred times over

and with each lifetime she sinks deeper and deeper into the avatar’s soul, like a tree digging its roots into the soil, over thousands of years and hundreds of lifetimes

raava has felt all of it, seen all of it, been all of it, she’s so completely in tune with the human experience i can’t believe how much i love the concept of her

this great spirit, who used to be so disdainful of human, of humanity– coming down from her mountain and learning miracle of human life, how it’s infinitesimally large and infinitesimally small at the same time, the range of its variety

each of the avatars lead beautiful, terrible, fulfilled lives by themselves, but raava is like the thread that connects a string of pearls; she makes them more than the sum of their parts.

Because every single time they try anything even slightly different, no matter how seemingly innocent, they’re descended on by a horde of angry white knights screaming that chubby mermaids are offensive to anorexia and brownish colored harpies are racist and using the words spirit and animal in the same sentence is cultural appropriation and their 1st grade friend’s father’s brother’s cousin’s nephew’s former roommate is squicked out by this thing therefore no one should be allowed to have or make it ever. The fact that they can’t do something so simple as try making a spot pattern rather than the stripes they always do without incurring the moral guardian’s wrath is why we can’t have accents with scars anymore, we can’t write lore with any kind of violence or illegal activities in it anymore, they’ll never release anything like the bloody bandages again, and all breeds from now on will likely be extra anime to avoid scaring anyone and the reason i wouldn’t be shocked if one of these days they replaced the site with a blank white page just to keep from offending anyone. Because tumblr thinks the world revolves around them and is obligated to cater to their every individual issue using some kind of time-space-defying magic i guess because it sure as hell isn’t practical on any level otherwise. Enjoy this bland censorship hell you’ve created for yourselves.

What To Ask A Ouija Board

Special note to @antigonemaia

lucidityowl  asked:

How do you personally balance your spiritual and waking life? Do you ever experience conflict between wanting to pursue spiritual pursuits versus more practical pressing issues in everyday life? Thanks in advance for answering!

Conflict between spiritual and daily life is not unusual in the beginning of one’s path. Or for quite a while afterwards. 

When you first step on the spiritual path, it seems as though you are entering a mythic world. You are a divine child that is awakening to itself as the Creation in which you frolic. Gods, goddesses, animal spirits, other worlds, all sorts of things may come to you and become exquisite experiences. Additionally, you may experience great love, peace, joy, bliss, and grace within you. 

All of this might be in direct contrast with what some might call “mundane” life. Paying bills, working a job, studying for exams, cleaning your room, etc. Dealing with pain, facing loss and death, depression and confusion, anxiety, stress, nervousness, fear.

In the beginning of the spiritual path, many people experience an oscillation. It is like when you first turn on a light and it flickers before fully illuminating. But the path is not actually limited to such divisions between sacred and mundane, spiritual and daily life. 

“If you love the sacred and despise the ordinary, you are still bobbing in the ocean of delusion.” ~ Lin Chi

In the end, spirituality begins and ends with your own consciousness, your state of being. This is always there, whether you are waiting in line for the bus or you are meditating in the Himalayas. 

Mindfulness and compassion are always possible. It can take some time and practice to be able to have the presence of mind and the space within you to actualize that. Patience is important. 

Do I still experience friction between daily life and my spiritual way? Sometimes, but it is more subtle and less confusing than it used to be. Part of that is just growing up. I’m 29 now and I was 19 when I started my path. Part of that is experience and spiritual practice. Knowing when to be patient and when to push yourself helps. 

There is always room for spiritual pursuits in daily life. That has to do with how we relate to others, what we value in life, how aware we are of impermanence, and how much time we set aside daily for meditation and spiritual practice. 

A simple example is just cleaning my room. That has become a continually spiritual experience for me. There is a new life my room takes on after I clean it. My altar shines, the space feels opened, and there is peace. A dull task can become a sacred act when approached with humility and mindfulness. 

The divine has given you worldly responsibilities. Be true to those responsibilities and they might teach you things. Let go of fixation on outcomes, let go of your desires and fears, and just do what must be done. There is transcendence in that kind of surrender.

Meditate. Work. Love. Be grateful.

You’ll figure it out from there. 

Namaste :) Much love

Music Store Owner!Yoongi

Next up in the “adorable meeting” series is ½ of the Daegu princes, my spirit animal, Min Yoongi as music store owner!Yoongi~

  • Owns this lil store right next to the café
  • The walls are covered top to bottom in posters of various artists and groups
  • He sells a lot of hip hop and rap albums but he does have basically every other genre too
  • He does specialize in hip hop though like if anyone’s ever looking for an older album that you can only find online, he’s got it
  • His friends that hang out at the shop know his real name but most customers just know him as Suga
  • One of your best friends loves hip hop more than anything so when his birthday comes up, you decide to be a good friend and get him the album his favorite artist had just released
  • Naturally, you went to the closest music store in hopes they’d have it
  • There were only two other people in there when you went in but the store obviously wasn’t struggling based on its looks
  • You saw row after row of albums and it was a bit overwhelming bc you’d never seen so many albums in one place before
  • You don’t even bother trying to find the album yourself bc there are too many and you don’t even know where to start so you just walk up to the counter to ask the one and only worker if they had it
  • He doesn’t really notice you at first bc he’s talking to one of his customers and his voice is so raspy and lazy and you find it relaxing for some reason
  • You just sit there for a minute and think “I could listen to him talk for hours” before you snap out of it and clear your throat to get his attention
  • He finally looks at you and you kinda just have to take a minute to admire his face bc w o w
  • He’s the one to clear his throat this time bc you’ve been sitting there for like twenty seconds just staring at him
  • “I know I’m attractive and all but did you need some help with something?”
  • You just silently hold out your phone to show the picture of the album bc you lowkey want an excuse to be able to look at him without creeping him out
  • He just nods and points you over to the corner of the store and says it should be over there
  • You walk over and start to look but you don’t see it anywhere
  • He may or may not have pointed you to the wrong area just so he could come over and talk to you a bit more using the excuse of “do you need help finding it?”
  • He does exactly that and you of course have to accept the offer bc maybe you’re just missing it 
  • He pretends to look in the area you’re in for a bit so his cover isn’t blown
  • At one point he leans in a bit to look at a cover and you smell his cologne and he just smells so amazing
  • If Autumn had a scent, that’s what he smelled like
  • It reminded you of being cold but slowly warming up, of playing in leaves and wearing oversized sweaters
  • He eventually does lead you over to where the album actually is and as he’s going through the albums to find it he starts asking you about music
  • “So are you buying this for yourself or…a boyfriend maybe?”
  • You tell him you don’t have a boyfriend and one of the customers, Namjoon, overhears Yoongi attempting to subtly flirt and just gives him a look of approval
  • You see the cute worker glare at someone over your head and turn around to see the customer mouthing things at him
  • You can barely make out the “get each others numbers" but you do and it gives you a lil boost of confidence
  • So you start asking the cute worker what type of music he likes and he just kinda gestures around the store
  • “You’re looking at it”
  • But he does tell you about his favorite artist, who happens to be your favorite too and you get so excited bc not only is he nice af but his music taste is nice too bless
  • He gets just as excited bc wow the one time he flirts it actually works out
  • You two end up standing there for like an hour talking about your favorite artists and he starts suggesting albums
  • You pick out the few that he says he won’t let you walk out of the store without
  • But while you two talk, your smile is so wide your cheeks end up hurting but you somehow can’t force yourself to stop bc he’s actually really funny
  • And his smile is the cutest thing you may have ever seen
  • He gives you a discount and as he’s ringing you up, he casually mentions this underground rap thing he and his friends were thinking of going to
  • Then that customer from earlier, Namjoon, just leans over to whisper, “he’s trying to ask you out” and the look cute worker gives him is enough to make him shut up
  • You of course say yes and as you’re giving him your number, you ask each other for your names
  • Instead of giving you the usual “everyone calls me Suga” he tells you his real name and Namjoon is just snickering bc Yoongi’s got a crush
  • You walk out of the store with a few new albums and a new number in your phone
New (less culturally appropriative) Ilvermonry House suggestions

So I’m not sure if anyone’s done this yet (they probably have and I don’t feel like scouring the internet to find out), but I thought I might make some suggestions for alternate house names and mascots for the Ilvermorny school in America. As an American, I was really excited to have an American side added to the wizarding world, yet I, like many, was incredibly dissapointed with J.K. Rowling’s insensitivity to Native American culture (and most of the sociopolitical, cultural, racial and historical nuances of this country, but that’s another post). When first announced, I was inclined to reject them and ignore Ilvermorny altogther. But as time went on, I really did begin to like the idea of the school, and I have lots of ideas for American wizard characters and stories set at Ilvermorny that I want to write. I also like what each house represents, because I think it’s a really interesting way to divide them. It’s just, the mascots and names are so…. just no. I don’t want to perpetuate and normalize cultural appropriation, and so I have decided that, for the purpose of my own understanding of Ilvermorny (and in my eventual fanfic) I will be swapping out the creatures and beings from different Native American cultures for literal animals that are native(ish…) to the Massachusetts area. The names are still preliminary, but I think the new mascots capture the spirits of each house. 

So, without further ado, I present my version of the four Ilvermonry Houses: 

Ursares 

Represents a wizard’s body; favors warriors

Mascot: The bear 

Originally posted by littlepawz

At first, I intended the former Wampus house to be represented by the terrifying and fierce grizzly bear, but grizzlies are native to the western part of the continent, and the founders of Ilvermorny would not have encountered them. And so, I decided to go with a black bear, technically, but I’m sure modern members of the house also identify with grizzlies. And polar bears. And possibly pandas, although those aren’t technically bears. “Ursares” is based on the Latin word for bear, Ursa, but made to sound cool and more official. I originally considered making the mascot of this house a Puma, but decided that that was too easy. And also, bears are cute and scary and great. 

So, go Bears! 

Apidae

Represents a wizard’s heart; favors Healers

Mascot: The Bee

Originally posted by exitthroughthegif

This one stumped me for a while, but I eventually decided that the former Pukwudgie house would be best represented by a honey bee. Honey has healing properties, so the Healer connection works there. Also, bees are generally nice and won’t harm you until you try to harm them; at that point, they will put their very lives into the wounds they inflict, which to me captures the idea of the “wizard’s heart”. Though they be but small, they be fierce :) Once again, “Apidae” is taken from the Latin word for bee.

Go bees! 

Magnardea

Represents a wizard’s mind; favors Scholars 

Mascot: The Great Blue Heron

[I wanted a more majestic gif for this, but I couldn’t find one. Oh well]

While I originally was trying to think of some reptile that would capture the spirit of the former Horned Serpent house, I eventually concluded that the North American animal which best captures the aloof, mysterious nature of this house is the Great Blue Heron. If you’ve ever seen one in person, you will understand. They’re just so… majestic. They look like dinosaurs when they fly, and they’re very elusive. They seem like they would be wise. As far as the name goes, “Ardea” is the Latin world for Heron. However, I didn’t want two houses to start with the same letter and I was pretty set on Apidae, and so I added the prefix “Magna” which means great, because it’s the “great” blue heron, and also this house seems the most pretentious :) (this is my house, so I am allowed to say that). This is the name that I’m the least sure of, because it still sounds kind of weird to me, but it’s what I’ve got for now. 

So, go Herons! 

Crotalus

Represents a wizard’s soul; favors Adventurers

Mascot: The Rattlesnake

Originally posted by chevreboy

Once I became sold on the Heron as a mascot, I decided not to go with another bird for the former Thunderbird house. I was drawing a blank, until one of my friends suggested the rattlesnake, and I think it fits. I associate them with the woods and with the desert, which are far out places where one might go adventuring. Also, they’re known for their sound, which is also an association with Thunderbirds, so that sort of works. There’s danger and venom here. “Crotalus” is their Latin genus name, and I think it works as a House name without any modification. 

I do like this mascot, but I would be open to other ideas for this house too. I think I considered wolf, coyote, different kinds of raptors such as hawks or vultures, and maybe an albatross? But again, I wanted four very different animals, and I already have a four-legged mammal and a bird house, and I can’t think of any other reptiles that are native to the Massachusetts area and that capture the spirit of Thunderbird (turtles don’t seem to work). 

So (for now), go Rattlesnakes!
