To be nobody but yourself in a world which is doing its best, night and day, to make you everybody else means to fight the hardest battle which any human being can fight; and never stop fighting. By e. e. cummings (via observando)

Somewhere, sometime, somehow you got tangled up in garbage, and you’ve been avoiding God. You’ve allowed a veil of guilt to come between you and your Father. You wonder if you could ever feel close to God again. The message of the torn flesh is you can. God welcomes you. God is not avoiding you. God is not resisting you. The curtain is down, the door is open, and God invites you in By

And a man sat alone, drenched deep in sadness, and all the animals drew near to him and said, ‘We do not like to see you so sad. Ask us for whatever you wish and you shall have it.’
The man said, ‘I want to have good sight.’
The vulture replied, ‘You shall have mine.’
The man said, ‘I want to be strong.’
The jaguar said, ‘You shall be strong like me.’
The man said, ‘I long to know the secrets of the Earth.’
The serpent replied, ‘I will show them to you.’
And so it went with all the animals. And when the man had all the gifts that they could give, he left.
Then the owl said to the other animals, ‘Now the man knows much, he’ll be able to do many things. Suddenly I am afraid.’
The deer said, ‘The man has all that he needs. Now his sadness will stop.’
But the owl replied, ‘No. I saw a hole in the man, deep like a hunger he will never fill. It is what makes him sad and what makes him want. He will go on taking and taking, until one day the world will say, ‘I am no more and I have nothing left to give.’

I will not keep calm. I will not “make peace” with the ruling elite and status quo that alienates me and my comrades for speaking out against oppression. I am not asking a corrupt system to accept me into it. I refuse to remain silent when I see injustice in this world committed by greedy warmongers. I stand for humanity. My beliefs are shaped by a love and faith in every human being to determine their history, their autonomy, and their culture for themselves. Which side are you on? By (via occupyla)
