While this blog was initially about my adventures in growing my own food, it has morphed into a window into my search for the truth and justice I was raised to revere. Also, be warned that while I strive to be open-minded and open-hearted, I can have some very strong opinions on certain subjects.
"Hearts are extremely resilient. They can take a beating, emerge bruised and bleeding, and still have the strength to stand up to fight another day. Know that choosing to feel it all during those moments when pain threatens to overwhelm is one firm step towards being okay again one day."
Just be fucking honest about how you feel about people while you’re alive."
You are not your thoughts, my friend. You are the One aware of your own awareness. Pull back into your Self and get to know You. You are the Witness. The illusion of separation in this play of consciousness sure is alluring…
Namaste, beautiful spirit. <3
"Having feelings for someone is scary because that gives them the power to hurt you."
"Compliments and presents will never effect me the same way a genuine conversation about your fears will. It’s nice to be adored and flattered but it’s not meaningful. Going to the store to buy a dozen roses for $12.99 isn’t the same as telling someone how scared you were when your parents told you they were getting divorced. Telling someone they have a nice body isn’t the same as admitting you don’t really like your freckles or the the little dent in your chin. Being vulnerable is beautiful. Trying to look beautiful isn’t. I don’t understand how people can pretend to be so happy from all the superficial things in life when it’s the moments we can’t put into words or pictures that are the most wonderful."
"Like most sensitive souls, you already know you’re sensitive.
You soak up others’ moods and desires like a sponge. You absorb sensation the way a paintbrush grasps each color it touches on a palette. The ethereal beauty of a dandelion, the shift of a season, the climax of a song, or a certain stirring scent can evoke such wonder it’ll behave as your very breath itself- moving through cells as fuel does to fire and wind does to waves."
