Recently I decided that whenever I meet someone, I should introduce myself as “Water.” Think of it: our brains are about 90 percent water, our bodies about 68 percent. Not even Waterman, simply Water: it makes people curious, they say, “pardon?” and I say again “Water.”
This immediately starts a conversation and creates an awareness about it. This new name conveys my deep concern about water.—Ulay, Brooklyn Rail Interview, May 2011
i take the purple make it blue!
when you meet that person. a person. one of your soulmates. let the connection. relationship be what it is. it may be five mins. five hours. five days. five months. five years. a lifetime. let it manifest itself, the way it is meant to. it has an organic destiny. this way if it stays or if it leaves, you will be softer from having been loved this authentically. souls come into, return, open, and sweep through your life for a myriad of reasons, let them be who and what they are meant.
― Nayyirah Waheed
When we start dreaming the same dreams we will have reached a collective lucidity- the same way our ancestors manifested.
So many times I have failed to see what is right in from me. So many times I have failed to operate from the present moment.
every act of taking care of ourselves relieves the burden of Pachamama.
Experiencing some new form of impermanence. Never thought I’d say this but there is power in the paradox of groundlessness. In fact- it is helping me to reach higher ground– with a new pair of dragonfly wings. God is Change. God is Good.
