not an amount.
The easiest way to save resources + energy is to use less.
This means consuming less,
making do with what we have already -
establishing an imperative to rid ourselves
of all the unnecessary gadgets + duplications
that so hideously clutter up our lives.
The beauty of belief
is it doesn't matter whether the thing you believe is true or not.
It's your belief in it that gives it its power.
You have to believe that something that doesn't exist can exist
to bring it into the world.
If you start with the idea that it's impossible, then it's impossible.
We believe our way into things,
allowing them to come into being in the world.
~Rick Rubin, via this phenomenal listen
I beg you, to have patience with everything unresolved in your heart
+ to try to love the questions themselves
as if they were locked rooms or books written in a very foreign language.
Don’t search for the answers,
which could not be given to you now,
because you would not be able to live them.
And the point is to live everything.
Live the questions now.
Perhaps then, someday far in the future, you will gradually,
without even noticing it,
live your way into the answer.
~Rainer Maria Rilke, Letters to a Young Poet
It's a serious thing
just to be alive
on this fresh morning
in this broken world.
~Mary Oliver :: Red Bird
What if optimism is actually what's punk rock?
via this important listen
The question isn't, "What difference does/will it make?"
The question is, "What kind of person do I want to be?"
America will never correct its mistakes
if teachers are not allowed the teach about them.
There is no courage in the absence of fear.
~Luvvie Ajayi Jones
