Instead of teaching our children WHAT to think, let's teach them HOW to think! We have become really good at teaching (through modeling) the content of our culture to our children. Be polite and say thanks, even if you don't mean it. Otherwise, to speak the truth of your experience (not-thankful) is to be considered rude. So... we teach our children to be insincere and live in contradictory internal states so they don't offend another. We teach them to be dishonest so they can manage an external appearance labeled "polite" and "good". We teach them to shun their truth so they do not have to face the shame imposed on them by authority. In essence, we teach our children that shunning themselves is better than living in fear of being shamed by another. I can't help but wonder ....what is the intelligence of that?! What is the fucking point?! How can we expect our children to grow up to be sincere inside themselves if we are teaching them to not be?! ...and all this for the sake of optics, for the sake of external approval, for the sake of ...hopefully fitting in.
As a natural and well-trained critical thinker I believe that rather than assuming biodigital convergence is the best way forward, it would be imperative to contemplate larger, more important and far reaching questions, such as: What would it mean to leave the biotechnical convergence in the hands of a few global elites, technocrats and government officials? How many of us would continue to be considered humans with rights? Who decides WHAT is a human being in this new world? What percent "biology" would you have to have to be considered human? What about the role of eugenics in this emergence of human and technology? Who will program the transmition that controls thoughts, culture and reality? Will humans be individuals or a collective hive? Will individuals be able to think for themselves in a world where their brains are directly plugged to The Cloud? What about free will in this world of digitized control? Will individuals be able to override the suggested algorithms and choose for themselves? Will free will, agency, and body autonomy exist? Which version of these animal-human-digital organisms will still be considered human? Which version will be used for medical experimentation? Who gets to decide? And who is decided upon?
After all these years immersed in my own Self-discovery and personal evolution, I have come to discover that wisdom is not something I can learn in a book. Wisdom is the function of living. It is cultivated through experience. No matter how much I learn through my intellect, unless and until I am able to live it, I will never know it as real...I will only be able to tell someone else's story...and no matter how eloquently and convincingly I can tell that version of the story, it isn't mine. And I'm here to LIVE my own experience...as fully and as embodied as is available to me in any given moment.
Reality is a social construct. Who is the storyteller? To change your life, you must change your mind. To change your mind, you must dare to question and discover...

When I have fully transformed into every quantum space within me to shed my conditioning and get to know my Self as the magnificence of the godForce that I AM, when I have come to taste the deliciousness of my beloved essence, when I have come to prioritize my spiritual well-being above all else, I notice: distorted love is everywhere. And for me, the decision is divine: I am unwilling to participate in it any longer.

This upcoming conversation is for you if you have noticed something feels "wrong" with what's going on and you want a safe space to exhale the truth of your experience, judgment-free.
The last year or so has felt incredibly hard for me because of the speed, density and immensity of the destruction I see unfolding in the societal, cultural and physical realms ... which, of course, stem from the great disconnect from the divine (our own selves / the consciousness that we all are). I say "of… Continue reading Getting Terrifyingly Real with OurSelves: Be who you are NOW
Breastfeeding was such a beautiful journey, for me. With it's incredible challenges, it was one of the most magnificent experiences of my life. There is something magical about our bodies ability to make and sustain life. No thinking involved. Just being. Living. Life sustaining life. Yes, it's "the most natural thing". And, no, it doesn't… Continue reading Longing & Evolution: Breastfeeding
