"Holding on to anger is like grasping a hot coal with the intent of throwing it at someone else; you are the one who gets burned." - The Buddha #wanderlust108 #dharmapunx #againstthestream

I look at this picture as I sit in my room in bed getting my heart ready for my first Challenge Day of the year tomorrow with tears in my eyes.
As much as I wish that my role in this resistance could be on the front line punching Nazi and burning shit down with y'all sometimes,(especially right after every fucked up murder and act of violence that has happened), I pause, and at least in this moment I cant become the victim and the perpetrator. Thats something i swore I'd never be anymore. Mad respect and love to those who are on the front line. But right now my job in this revolution is to bring my heart into our schools. Working with our vulnerable babies. Reminding them how beautiful they are and letting them know that they don't have to be ashamed of their pain anymore. That they can learn to meet their pain with compassion and in doing so learning to love all of themselves so their pain doesn't spill out onto the people around them ending the cycle of oppression. I give them an opportunity to question the way things are. Question it and get to directly experience what it feels like to choose love over fear. I know this is a systemic problem and that shits not goin to change until we change the system but these young people are our future. All these fucking jack asses out there were all that lil fucking baby you see up there. Kids, that boy with KKK costume on is innocent and was born with a gift. But if our children leave themselves or betray themselves the world doesn't get that gift. Im goin to try and keep that from happening 1 child at a time. #soldierinthewarforlove #dharmapunx #resist #teachyourchildren
Shared from my friend Jess. "People learn to be whatever their society and culture teaches them. We often assume that it takes parents actively teaching their kids, for them to be racist. The truth is that unless parents actively teach kids not to be racists, they will be,”

I had a long tearful call with my mom the other day, about being tired, being kicked in the ass by sickness, worried about the gambles I'm taking with stability (something I've been aching for the past months and year) in order to try and make some sort of obscure career goals a reality, the hurt of not having vulnerability reciprocated, reminders of where you were a year ago and the things that fell apart. And she tried to talk to me about the eclipse, the new moon, and mercury in retrograde, that all the hurt is exacerbated, and the reminder that all things change. Right now, it's like this

#MindfulMonday #pause #intentionsetting

Today’s new moon & eclipse also happens to fall on one of the Uposatha (observance) days - an auspicious day for followers of the Theravada tradition of Buddhism.
.
The Buddha explained that this day was intended to help purify the polluted mind, which in turn leads to inner tranquility and happiness. It's a day to reaffirm our commitment and intensify our meditation and dhamma practice.
.
On this day, one should practice the 8 precepts instead of the usual 5, meditate, listen to a discourse, visit a near center, & immerse oneself in dhamma as much as possible.
.
Enjoy the eclipse and may today's practice be of great benefit! 🙏🏼

In every moment I take : Refuge in the Buddha, Refuge in Dharma , Refuge in the Sangha. The Truth is within and within the Truth we know we are all connected. I have to say, today was a good day 💜 #dharma #dharmapunx #meditation #gratitude #thefournobletruths #eightfoldpath #ingassho #buddhism #Buddha #Buddhist #Bodhisattva #icecube #thelotus #sangha #awakening #dimensions #mountainlife
