RACISM

The “Black Lives Matter” Movement is probably not enough.

Like the Aryan conquerors of India, white Europeans in the Americas wanted to be seen not only as economically successful but also as pious, just and objective. Religious and scientific myths were pressed into service to justify this division. Theologians argued that Africans descend from Ham, son of Noah, saddled…

I feel fortunate for loving animals and need to admit to you it hasn’t always been the case. I never hated them or stayed careless whenever I was witnessing some cruel behavior toward them. But, I can’t say I had a particular connection with those beautiful living creatures!

I love the beautiful intention of the positive affirmations when used by intrinsically good people. Still, I am not into them.

Interestingly, I came to the realization that when they are not precise enough — a clear timeline such as ‘today’, affirmations can be wrongly or never interpreted by the…

A feeling is the marriage of emotion and thought. ~ Gregg Braden

“Why is the simple definition above relevant at all, to me?” one may ask.

It stipulates that the nature of the feeling will primarily depend on the ‘narrative’ we allocate to the emotion, not the emotion itself!
