Love is the most pure, simple, wonderful emotion that has the ability to rise above all that is cruel and harsh about this world. It has incredible power to bring people together on a level some would say is indescribable. It can inspire us to be our best selves, to strive for happiness, and to be more compassionate as a whole. Love is one of those most basic universal feelings that is so naturally ingrained or hardwired in our very being, that it surfaces sometimes without effort, stemming from somewhere deep within the core of our existence. Love knows no barriers, labels, or stereotypes. It just knows how to expand. Love is not about control or limitations between individuals, it is about growth, expansion, and freedom to be yourself. Love who you love and allow others to do the same. All love comes from the same place: the heart. So let’s expand our minds and not judge others for who they love, because it’s all one in the same. It doesn’t matter what religions, governments, other institutions, parents, or your peers tell you: you deserve to love and be loved by whomever you wish.

It’s so easy to get caught up in the chaos of schedules, deadlines, driving to and fro, studying, taking care of kids, etc, that we lose touch with our ancestral connection to the circle of life. So let us remember. We are a part of the delicate, intricate balance of energy that connects the air, water, land, and other life that resides on this planet. We breathe in and out each and every day, taking in the oxygen that was produced by the oceans and plants surrounding us. We drink the water that falls from the sky, and that is stored beneath our feet in giant aquifers. We stretch out our arms and yawn, the same way a lion might yawn with it’s paws outstretched, opening it’s sleepy eyes after an afternoon nap laying in the shade of a tree. We open our hearts and this raw, powerful feeling of love flows from within, without our knowing why or how, and allows us to look into the eyes of another and feel uplifted and whole. We look up at the moon and think of bigger, braver things than the small worries that sometimes plague our minds. We explore and play in this interesting and beautiful world. We are wild. We are free. We are connected.
Under all that pavement…under all that noise…under all those shopping malls and freeways…lies the earth. Let’s not forget her. Let’s not forget whence we came.
