Compassion and wisdom are the two wings of the spiritual life. Without one or the other there will be no liberation from suffering. No truly lasting peace. Which is our goal. A sustainable future for each individual and the world as a whole. It's time to follow your heart and do and live as you feel is right. Let's take back the reigns on our lives and live in accordance with all that is true. In love. In peace. In wisdom.
In regards to my race I am white. This is not a colorblind blog, race is integral to the discussion. Intersectional awareness is of utmost importance to the dialogue.
“Imagine living in a world where there is no domination, where females and males are not alike or even always equal, but where a vision of mutuality is the ethos shaping our interaction. Imagine living in a world where we can all be who we are, a world of peace and possibility. Feminist revolution alone will not create such a world; we need to end racism, class elitism, imperialism. But it will make it possible for us to be fully self-actualized females and males able to create beloved community, to live together, realizing our dreams of freedom and justice, living the truth that we are all “created equal.” Come closer. See how feminism can touch and change your life and all our lives. Come closer and know firsthand what feminist movement is all about. Come closer and you will see: feminism is for everybody.”
