Lock up your libraries if you like; but there is no gate, no lock, no bolt that you can set upon the freedom of my mind.

The very ink with which all history is written is merely fluid prejudice

She was born in spring but I was born too late

Now, when it comes to raising the minimum wage, conservatives always say it’s a non-starter because it cuts into profits.  Well, yeah.  Of course.  Paying workers is one of those unfortunate expenses of running a business.  You know, like taxes, or making a product.  If you want to get rich with a tax-free enterprise that sells nothing, start a church!

Obey the principles without being bound by them.

I fear not the man who has practiced 10,000 kicks once, but I fear the man who has practiced one kick 10,000 times.

Whoa. Look at that. Nearly two million are estimated as homeless, per reports. The UN says 4,200 have died as the Philippine government says the death toll is standing at 3,633 with around 1,700 missing. 12,000 are injured across the Philippine’s 7,000 islands. And aid is now finally arriving to the islands. The United States, Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Singapore, Israel and Australia all are sending in physical help along with other countries contributing proceeds. 

Holy cow

Out beyond ideas of wrongdoing
and rightdoing there is a field.
I’ll meet you there.

When the soul lies down in that grass
the world is too full to talk about.


Beneath the armor of skin/and/bone/and/mind
most of our colors are amazingly the same.”

Aberjhani, Elemental: The Power of Illuminated Love


Muslims Celebrate Eid al-Fitr

Eid Mubarak to all those who observed Ramadan! The moon was sighted on Wednesday in Saudi Arabia, which means that Eid al-Fitr, or the “festival of breaking of the fast,” began today. Though a day-long holiday, some countries will observe Eid al-Fitr tomorrow instead. The festival marks end of Ramadan for Muslims and is celebrated with feasts, family gatherings and large groups gathering together for united prayer.

To see more photos and videos Instagrammers captured of the celebration, visit the Sultanahmet Camii (Blue Mosque) and Al-Masjid Al-Haram المسجد الحرام location pages. You can also browse the #eidmubarak and #eidalfitr hashtags.
