We indulge so much in the illusion of our own realities that we often forget we are part of something greater. We are beyond the body, the mind, and anything that serves to divide humanity. These are illusions that we create, man made. In actuality, they do not exist. We are greater than skin color, sex, origin, any boundaries, All Of It!
We are all one, and many of us spend so much time trying to create these nonexistent boundaries. Through meditation, we train the mind to understand the reality of our oneness with all, which is why meditation is of utmost importance.
Stop bleaching your skin. Stop flattening your hair. Stop looking to society for answers.
Start embracing your skin, embracing your hair. But most importantly, start loving yourself just the way God made you. Because you Are beautiful.

Wake the Fuck Up, America.
I’ve been studying psychology for quite some time, and one of the the most important things psychology teaches is that Blacks as a whole are subject to extreme discrimination. The Facts Are There. Studies conducted again and again show that, for example, during interviews interviewers tend to sit farther away/spend less time interviewing Blacks, car dealerships charge Blacks more money, and Blacks who are housed in mental hospitals are subject to hostile beatings even though they do not show greater disciplinary problems than Whites, not to mention the fact that Blacks make up the majority of America’s penitentiaries (In NO small part due to racial profiling). The list goes on and on, and Blacks suffer all over due to small-minded thinking.
It’s time for us to cut the bullshit and wake the fuck up as a society. We must open our eyes and minds to ensure that we ourselves are in fact not discriminating, and we must not stand by and watch others discriminate. We must stand up for minorities, and cannot expect them to fight racial discrimination on their own.
What Can We Do?
1. Surround yourself with friends of all skin colors and racial backgrounds.
2. If someone makes a rude or racial comment, speak up. People need to know that Racism is disgusting and should not be tolerated.
3. Educate yourself on history, and the terrible things that racism led to.
4. Teach tolerance, be a voice for the oppressed. You Can Make a Difference.
Do Not Change Yourself to fit in with White Society. Dark skin is beautiful, curves are beautiful, everything natural about You is beautiful.
Sometimes I feel like there is skin upon the world. And those of us who are born under it, can see threw it. We just can’t get threw it.
