I just noticed it’s 11:11 AM as I begin this blurb. 🙂 I keep hearing people tell me and others to stay positive. It would be good advice if it meant that the most positive thing anyone can do is to tell the truth, your truth in the moment. However, that’s not what is usually meant by such advice. What is normally implied is to stay away from negative thoughts and feelings – suppress them if you must, but don’t speak them. That gives them power of manifestation. To me, and maybe I’ve got it all wrong, that is the blueprint for how to live an inauthentic life. Is that what everyone else wants? It’s not what I want. Healing my own shadow involves listening and giving voice to the cries of humanity that the establishment tries to suppress, the cries for truth and justice, the cries for equal and fair treatment under universal law. As I’ve said before, I will not be free until all are free. I’m on a mission to spread the message that we are all brothers and sisters, interconnected in a single web of Life. I choose to hear the cries of the people.
