wuddup tumblr friends

I’ve been lurkin.

Happy New Year, my lovelyss

Here I am, sitting at a kiosk at the mall where I will be working for the next two months during the holiday season. I am the single employee of a small business that sells handmade dog treats and sweaters. Next to me are two energetic sales men trying to lure women over to their hair straightening stand. They are blasting generic house and brostep tracks while fist pumping. Behind me is Victoria’s Secret, and every time I turn around there is a life-size cardboard cutout of a half naked model sporting tiny panties and a bra. She is staring me in the eye, mouth open in an “o” shape. It’s appears as though she is surprised to see me still sitting here. In front of me is a women’s clothing shop that sells the latest trends. Skinny white manikins stand it the windows in front of giant “40% Off” signs.
Then there’s me, reading a book about raw foodism, and surfing through my tumblr dashboard which is full of anti-consumerism, self sustainability, anarchy, feminism, and vegan posts. Oh the irony.

It’s good to be back to the tumblr community, friends. It keeps me grounded in one the the most impossible places to be so! :)

"People who do not love themselves can adore others, because adoration is making someone else big and ourselves small. They can desire others, because desire comes out of a sense of inner incompleteness, which demands to be filled. But they can not love others, because love is an affirmation of the living growing being in all of us. If you don’t have it, you can’t give it."

"Whether they’re called “liberal” or “conservative,” the major media are large corporations, owned by and interlinked with even larger conglomerates. Like other corporations, they sell a product to a market. The market is advertisers—that is, other businesses. The product is audiences. For the elite media that set the basic agenda to which others adapt, the product is, furthermore, relatively privileged audiences.
So we have major corporations selling fairly wealthy and privileged audiences to other businesses. Not surprisingly, the picture of the world presented reflects the narrow and biased interests and values of the sellers, the buyers and the product"

"Love every person you see today, without judgment. Just be in love all day long, and see the same divine Self in all. The capacity to love everyone without reservation is a very sublime state. Revel in it."
