Humanity is incarcerated, wounded, bleeding in the absence of social, racial, and environmental justice.
To those who have felt that racism isn’t a deal-breaker, misogyny isn’t a deal-breaker, homophobia isn’t a deal-breaker, destruction of the environment isn’t a deal-breaker, disregard for human health isn’t a deal-breaker, human rights violations isn’t a deal-breaker…What have you become? What have you enabled?
Your higher sense of humanity misses you. It’s time to awaken from the hate, fear, hurt, confusion. We’re ready to welcome you back with open arms. It’s time to come home to Love.
To my friends in black and brown bodies, I love you. I stand with you. May your lives, your hopes, your dreams, your rights take flight. May you soar. May we all rise to create better ways together.
We all have work to do…to heal the collective trauma, and evolve our country to meet the ideals of our constitution… and to answer the natural call to love and for justice that resides in all human hearts.

In these difficult times, may we dream, incubate, and ultimately choose new and better ways, out of the blind consumerism that has blanketed our beautiful planet in pollution and desecration of all kinds. In the midst of of this planetary pause, may we recall the pleasure of simpler ways, in harmony, in balance with the gifts all around. Happy Beltane.
