There’s nowhere you can be that isn’t where you’re meant to be.
If I were really asked to define myself, I wouldn’t start with race; I wouldn’t start with blackness; I wouldn’t start with gender; I wouldn’t start with feminism. I would start with stripping down to what fundamentally informs my life, which is that I’m a seeker on the path. I think of feminism, and I think of anti-racist struggles as part of it. But where I stand spiritually is, steadfastly, on a path about love.
Bell Hooks (via quotes-shape-us)
Must read something written by this woman!
When we drop fear, we can draw nearer to people, we can draw nearer to the earth, we can draw nearer to all the heavenly creatures that surround us.
Bell Hooks (via newyorknative)
Once in a while it really hits people that they don’t have to experience the world in the way they have been told to.
Rather than waste water, they waste fabric. How about only using natural fiber clothing and burying it in the earth after they get back so it can continue to to serve? Or donate it to a homeless shelter, or a museum, or … how about we don’t burn stuff at high altitudes or pollute space anymore? We once thought our oceans were big enough not to notice our garbage. We were wrong. We once thought our air system was big enough not to notice our smoke. We were wrong. How about we get over the idea that there is some magical mythical place called Away that we can send things to without consequences?
