"We need another and a wiser and perhaps a more mystical concept of animals. Remote from universal nature and living by complicated artifice, man in civilization surveys the creature through the glass of his knowledge and sees thereby a feather magnified and the whole image in distortion. We patronize them for their incompleteness, for their tragic fate for having taken form so far below ourselves. And therein do we err. For the animal shall not be measured by man. In a world older and more complete than ours, they move finished and complete, gifted with the extension of the senses we have lost or never attained, living by voices we shall never hear. They are not brethren, they are not underlings: they are other nations, caught with ourselves in the net of life and time, fellow prisoners of the splendour and travail of the earth.”
- Henry Beston (The Outermost House)

Your first time is NOT supposed to hurt
You are NOT supposed to bleed
If you bleed, that is NOT your hymen being ‘popped’, it is a tear due to lack of sexual arousal and natural lubrication.
This is all a MYTH perpetrated by men so they don’t have to make sure you are comfortable and sufficiently aroused enough before you have sex with them. It is an excuse to disregard and hurt you.
I just really want women to know this.
wow never knew this
reflection 1” if you don’t reflect back from the buzz of the moment on the day; the passion subsides, understanding and field of immersion diminishes. Perhaps, because the more you have time and space away, the less connection you can grip onto. Daily reflections paramount.

The reason we have poverty is that we have no imagination. There are a great many people accumulating what they think is vast wealth, but it’s only money… they don’t know how to enjoy it, because they have no imagination.Alan Watts (via thatchiefshieff)
Does ‘nothingness’ really exist when nothing is still a something in itself?
Absence, empty space still a thing because it is a part of our living reality. Things can grow from it, it can grow from things
Its still space in itself n may contain essences we may not be able to physically perceive.
We can’t know nothingness/ emptiness unless we are informed of its duality i.e wholesomeness. Does one without the other cease to exist in our perception of reality?
I can’t stress how important this knowledge is. Once I realised that I chose whether someone’s negative vibes affected me (hell, even my own negativity), I found that life is a lot easier.
I used to drown in negativity, in a downwards spiral until I didn’t see any light in life and I didn’t see the purpose of life anymore. My therapist then taught me this, and it changed my life completely.

So many girls saw this. Bless.
All hail the queen.
Let this sink in. She declared herself a feminist in front of a bunch of white women who decided they werent feminists like katy perry and then her husband and child, the things feminists evidently don’t have, wete cheering on and gave her an award
all celebrities should have to talk about shit that actually matters
I honestly don’t understand how we go about life like everything isn’t fucked watching Beyonce perform for 15 minutes when we could all be paying attention to the fucked up things going on in our own country that the media is HAPPY to keep ignoring
