Tumblr can be a dangerous place if you’re not careful. Here are some lessons I learned the hard way:
- If someone gives you a reading that just doesn’t resonate with you, it’s probably not accurate. Trust your gut.
- Think critically. Spirit work can be very exciting and enthralling, especially when you first start out, but remember that the people you’re speaking with are just people like you. People can be wrong in their readings and their opinions.
- If you’re struggling or unsure, get a second opinion. Get a third opinion. You can never have enough opinions.
- Do your own readings, while always maintaining a critical mindset. Always hold your own experiences over someone else’s word.
- Never hold one tumblr user/friend up as the ultimate authority on everything spiritual. That’s a very dangerous mindset
- I know I said this before, but trust your gut and intuition above all else.
If you think you’re being spiritually manipulated, please come to me for advice! I’ll be happy to help
Soo… I was @ this museum the other day, and they had this great exhibit on race and racism, but then I noticed something that put me off… part of the exhibit was a series of photos called “The Hapa Project”, which consisted of portraits of mixed race people. For those of you who don’t know, Hapa is a pidgin word meaning “half”. It’s commonly used by mixed race hawaiians. For example, I am hapa haole, “half white”. Anyway, the reason why this project upset me is because the photographer wasn’t Hawaiian, and nor were all the subjects in the photos.. there were only two mixed Hawaiians in the whole line up… I was pretty steamed, bc like… so much of my culture has been consumed by non Hawaiians, and nothing we create FOR OURSELVES is ever left alone.. literally our own word for our people, “kanaka”, was turned into a slur for us!!! Just… if you’re not Hawaiian, don’t use hapa for yourself!! Literally just use half or mixed!! Our culture was almost wiped out by haloes, and we don’t need you stealing what’s left of it! Sorry this got so emotional, but this means a lot to me… Thank you, this has been psa…
Imagine Agent York getting Delta to give him access to intercom system because he has an important message, and at three AM in the morning on October 1st, he wakes EVERYONE on the MOI up by screaming “IT’S HALLOWEEN WAKE UP FUCKERS”
Sketches dated between 1530 to 1545 by a member of the Sangallo family, a wealthy Florentine house which produced multiple generations of renowned artists and architects including Bastiano “Aristotile” da Sangallo,
“Il Gobbo”, and Antonio da Sangallo. The drawings are based on Ten Books on Architecture, an ancient architectural treatise written by Roman military engineer and architect, Marcus Pollio Vitruvius in the 1st century B.C. During the Renaissance, Vitruvius’ treatsie was hailed as the first and only surviving ancient Roman text on architectural theory. Based on the number of surviving drawings and notes found on manuscript copies of the original Latin, these images were likely drafts for what was intended to be a complete translation of Vitruvius’ work, the first of it’s kind. Alas, for unknown reasons, the project was never completed.

The reason that the rich were so rich, Vimes reasoned, was because they managed to spend less money.
Take boots, for example. He earned thirty-eight dollars a month plus allowances. A really good pair of leather boots cost fifty dollars. But an affordable pair of boots, which were sort of OK for a season or two and then leaked like hell when the cardboard gave out, cost about ten dollars. Those were the kind of boots Vimes always bought, and wore until the soles were so thin that he could tell where he was in Ankh-Morpork on a foggy night by the feel of the cobbles.
But the thing was that good boots lasted for years and years. A man who could afford fifty dollars had a pair of boots that’d still be keeping his feet dry in ten years’ time, while the poor man who could only afford cheap boots would have spent a hundred dollars on boots in the same time and would still have wet feet.
This was the Captain Samuel Vimes ‘Boots’ theory of socioeconomic unfairness.
Make no mistake, after DAPL is defeated, the fight doesn’t actually end.
There have been two more pipelines approved to be built, and with Trumps’ backing, Keystone is an additional one.
Time and time again, these oil pipelines spring up across the country, and often are either near or on Indigenous land. DAPL is not a new occurrence to Indigenous people and non native farmers alike. The difference this time around has been clear and evident violations, social media and a major outpouring of allies.
At the end of the day, the problem continues because we still run on oil and refuse to look into clean energy projects. Reason being, oil has been the backbone to the Fat Cats wealth and fortune…but it almost always is at the expense of those in poverty and Native peoples.
All credible sources agree that we are using up our resources at an alarming rate, and the impact we have had on our earth is terrifying. If we continue, there WILL NOT be an earth for future generations to inherit. And my generation will experience excessive thirst, hunger and failing health related to events that have occurred.
When I was in college, we talked briefly about the impending “Water Wars” that economists were predicting. If you have zero idea what I’m talking about, I strongly, strongly encourage you to start researching it, because the concept is behind the very fight against DAPL.
Most people are aware of what happened in Flint, and the fact that they STILL don’t have access to clean water. Period. What they have to do to survive, is pay for filters (which are NOT cheap) and all kinds of bottled water imported from other areas etc.
The politicians in Flint have ultimately made water a COMMODITY, something that only those who can AFFORD IT, can utilize. And it has been effective in lining the pockets of greedy assholes.
Mark my words, you will be paying big bucks for clean water in the next decade or so unless something changes.
