patiently holding space for a friend,
conversing under the stars,
recognizing the potential for good within ourselves,
the inspiration to actively make the world a better place.
self kindness, self respect self respect, it all begins inside...love ourselves forgive ourselves love other forgive others
may all beings be safe may all beings be free from fear may all beings have peace
I choose to align with LOVE. LOVE is the foundation that holds us together in this human journey. I choose to align with LOVE. LOVE is the balm that heals all. I choose to align with LOVE. LOVE elevates our spirits, hearts, and minds. I choose to align with LOVE. LOVE wins. #RevolutionaryLove
To all those who have ever had to bear the weight of oppression, this is a message of love for you. To those who are forced to hold their heads high in the face of injustice, this is a message of love for you. To those who feel threatened or unsafe in their cities, neighborhoods, or in their own homes, this is a message of love for you. To those who have been shamed into silence and have had to numb the ensuing pain, this is a message of love for you. To those who have ever felt unloved, unwanted, or as if you don't matter, hear this message of love for you. I vow to walk in solidarity, to stand against all forms of violence and oppression, to help others on their healing journey while also working to heal myself. A message of love for all of you this Valentine's Day, and beyond.
"It is our duty to fight for our freedom. It is our duty to win. We must love each other and support each other. We have nothing to lose but our chains." ― Assata Shakur
I will care for my body, mind, spirit, and relationships. I will cultivate joy and build community even as I rise up in moral resistance. Revolutionary love is never letting anything be strong enough to close your heart. #RevolutionaryLove #WomensMarch #LoveArmy #1BillionRising
Revolutionary love holds most dear a deep and abiding love of all beings, no matter what is presented, no matter what is thrown at us, delving as deep as necessary to find the love and goodness within. And this doesn't mean that we lie down and get run over, or that we acquiesce to injustice or bad behavior of any kind, just that we do not let our essential selves be extinguished by interaction with an inauthentic Other.
