I write under the name yung pueblo for two reasons. One, because it reminds me of my birthplace Guayaquil, Ecuador and the economic roots of my family. In Guayaquil the word pueblo refers to the great mass of impoverished people. Two, yung pueblo really means young people, and that is in reference to all of humanity, humanity is very young, collectively we are still children slowly growing into young adulthood.
If you think about the things we were taught as children, to not fight or physically hurt one another, to share, to clean up after ourselves, to be kind, to be honest - some of us may be able to do these things as individuals, but as a collective humanity we have not yet mastered these skills, and these are exactly the skills we need to create a better world.
Fortunately, impermanence is the law of the universe, our childhood is coming to an end. We are growing up and coming out of our delusions. People are becoming more conscious of their inner reality, healing themselves, compassionately standing up for themselves and each others right to live, breathe, and exist. More and more of us are creating movements and solutions to build the world we wish our children and their children to live in - a world of balance, cooperation, equality, equity, empowerment, and love.
Sending love to all beings. May we all do the work that our inner peace requires. May we all grow our self love into the unconditional love that can end all harm. May we all be happy and peaceful 🙏🔥💙🌎 #yungpueblo
