Can You Be a Feminist and Consume Dairy? →

We are sitting at the table. So many women. Some of us have been raped, some of us are volunteers, some of us are volunteers who have been raped.

We meet-up just like this, once in a while – a community. Empowering each other in a struggle against a world that is fundamentally masculine. A…

"Animals are here with us, not for us."

Jenny Brown, The Lucky Ones

This has WAY too many notes because there’s no way these 72,000+ people are vegan. Everyone who reblogged this and isn’t vegan needs to carefully read what this says and then reevaluate their life and how they use and abuse animals (yes eating meat and dairy is abusing animals). Animals are here to share the earth with us and they have every right to live just like we do. Eating animals and their secretions, buying products tested on them, and using them as clothing and entertainment is animal cruelty and people need to wake up

kinoyoga:

Look for the subtle experience of the inner body and tune in to the depth level of consciousness. Don’t force it, just wait for it. If you rush the inner journey you may actually miss the destination of the being in the present moment. Stay calm, stay strong and practice every day 😊 Would you ever guess that this pic was taken in Vienna? It looks like a Greek temple!

I love the dark hours of my being.

My mind deepens into them.

"To this question, as kids, my friends always gave the same answer: “Pussy”. Whereas I answered “The smell of old people’s houses”. The question was “What do you really like the most in life?” I was destined for sensibility. I was destined to become a writer. I was destined to become Jep Gambardella."

"Life consists of rare, isolated moments of the greatest significance and of innumerably many intervals, during which at best the silhouettes of those moments hover about us. Love, springtime, every beautiful melody, mountains, the moon, the sea — all these speak completely to the heart but once, if in fact they ever do get a chance to speak completely. For many men do not have those moments at all, and are themselves intervals and intermissions in the symphony of real life."

"I wish people could just say how they feel like ‘Hey I really don’t like when you do that to me’ or ‘Hey I’m in love with you’ or ‘Hi I really miss you and I think about you all the time’ without sounding desperate. Why can’t everyone be painfully honest and just save people the trouble."

"

The mind wants you to do something to be free.

But you are already free, not as a person but as the presence, the intuition-I am. Mind sets up one trip after another, apparently in search of the real.

It is saying: you are ever so near the goal, only strive a little harder, a while longer… soon, you will come to the seek.
But the one who is Self-aware knows: All this is nonsense. I am here.

What need I do to be what I already am?

It bothers me that the intelligence of animals is measured by how willing they are to obey the commands of a human.

same goes for students at schools

I just realized how fucked up that is wow.
