Accept Yourself (A Loving Reminder)

Dear lovely, You are cherished and adored. Be not afraid of anything in your world and know that you have done so much to heal and whole yourself, to be who you truly are. The more you are able to unite all parts of you, the happier and more fulfilled you will be. Accept yourself. If another can not accept any aspect of you, it is for them to bear, not you. You are not responsible for the things others can not accept about life and the world. It is not about you; it is about them and ...

Vulnerable

It's a risk. I'm afraid. What will you think of me? What will I think of me? If I tell my hidden truth? I feel so ashamed. How could I show you that?

I need to talk more about all the people I've left behind. We need to talk about them more. We talk of the relationships we have, and the ones we desire—but we don't talk often enough about the many more people we've met and have not moved forward with. We don't talk enough about all the people we leave behind. I want us to talk about them more. I want us to talk about what we leave in the past, and how it changes over time. I want us to talk about what remains for us. And what (and ...

The Missing Pieces (of Poverty)

We've created a culture of leaving people feeling as though they're missing something. We've created a collective belief that, as a community and as an individual, we are not whole, nor okay. We've created a commercial system that grows fat and comfortable on promoting these feelings of lack and fragmentation. We've bought the idea that we can consume something or someone that can leave us feeling more whole. In the midst of our chaos of un-wholeness, we've created deep poverty. More ...
