Saint Francis de Sales
Religion is politics in the sky. When God looks like the ruling class, we’re in deep shit.Gloria Steinem (via sacredyoniflower)
The symbolism of the Goddess is not a parallel structure to the symbolism of God the Father. The Goddess does not rule the world. She is the world. Manifest in each of us, She can be known internally by every individual, in all her magnificent diversity.Starhawk (via sacredyoniflower)
Since we all came from a women, got our name from a women, and our game from a women. I wonder why we take from women, why we rape our women, do we hate our women? I think its time we killed for our women, be real to our women, try to heal our women, cus if we dont we’ll have a race of babies that will hate the ladies, who make the babies. And since a man can’t make one he has no right to tell a women when and where to create oneTupac Shakur (via sacredyoniflower)
Je n’aie pas vue le temps passer. Mais je ne regrette pas d’avoir vécu se qu’on voit a la télé avant di en arrivé la. Les faux pas mon amener vers la vérité. Je suis bien arriver et demain je serai nul par. Mon jardin ce trouve partout.
I thought I knew what I was doing. “Your body is a temple” Just like everything my momma told me, I had heard this a hundred times. In a hundred different ways. Clichés have become my angels, for they have followed me without revealing themselves. Clichés have become my teachers , for they have kicked my ass once or twice. I thought I knew what I was seeing. Confident men who loved themselves. Confident men who saw me as an equal. Out of touch with my spirit, I attracted the ones who were out of touch. Tenderness and compassion confused them. I thought I knew what I was hearing. The compliments, the promises. I had seen this behavior many times in my childhood, in many men. My life was pressing the fast forward button. I didn’t pause to think of why they grew up like this. Lack of knowledge wearing suits of superficial intelligence. Lack of respect dressed up in admiration. Lack of self love wearing cologne of pride and ego. Unworthy of my mind, I have let them touch me. Unworthy of my soul, I have let them take a part of me. My divine essence. Wasted. Each time, without fail, I was always shocked to see the faces behind the mask. For some, the mask was put on so poorly that I had to laugh and pass. Lust had separated my heart from my body. Full of masculine energy, I did it effortlessly. The soulless. Never had I asked for them to fall in love with me, never once wished for it. At 18 I left my ex, and with him, my sense of intimacy. I couldn’t comprehend why friendship, something so dear to me, was so foreign to these men. They all had the ingredients except for respect. Forever searching for it, knocking on my front door…
After fuck boy # 5 my spirit had enough. I had enough. Falling in love with a blind man will make you see so many things. The complaints were getting old. The disrespectful was getting too bold. So I stopped looking in the mirror and entered my mind. I traveled passed my mind and entered my soul. As I stopped them from entering me, I went in there myself.
I closed my eyes and remembered what I have been told. Your body is a temple. A prince can pass by and look, but only a King can enter these doors.
I swear to never open these doors for a prince. A fuckboy.
Study me as much as you like, you will not know me, for I differ in a hundred ways from what you see me to be. Put yourself behind my eyes and see me as I see myself, for I have chosen to dwell in a place you cannot see.
There is nothing outside of yourself, Look within,
Everything you want is there—
If you want money more than anything you will be bought and sold.
If you have greed for food, you’ll be a loaf of bread.
This is a subtle truth: whatever you love, you become.
Not the ones speaking the same language, but the ones sharing the same feeling understand each other.
It’s easy to stand with the crowd, but it takes courage to stand alone.Rumi (via fuckyeahrumi)
Whenever we manage to love without expectations,
calculations, negotiations, we are indeed in heaven.
Never be in a hurry; do everything quietly and in a calm spirit. Do not lose your inner peace for anything whatsoever, even if your whole world seems upset.
