I've been fluctuating on whether or not I wanted to lend my voice on social media regarding this recent governmental attack on transgender human existence. Here we are tho ... so I suppose you know where she resolved. Trans people are not safe right now. Our existence has not been safe at any point on the timeline of this white, cishet male dominated, imperialist US state. It's partly why a concept like "passing" exists in our society.
This same society allowed for a systemic annihilation of indigenous people at the hands of this country's government. The remaining populations of indigenous people are still currently fighting for a progression of their human rights and preservation of what remains for their culture and existence with bravery and fire. Many of these diverse indigenous states and nations upheld the notion that trans people were sacred. That trans humans were divine and held with them special insight and gifts of wisdom, reverence for the experience of bridging gender and realms and enlightened being. The systemic destruction of entire races and groups of people has been undertaken by the US government on several occasions. It can happen again. If we allow it. As we have before. As we do so now.
Of US trans populations, those who face the greatest threat of danger are trans womxn and femmes, and even more so trans womxn and femmes of color. We have thoroughly demonstrated as a society how well we tolerate hatred of and abuse against womxn as well as racism and violence against PoC. We accept so much abuse of each other. We accept the abuse against people with disabilities by our medical system and our physical construction of space, which invalidates their bodies and their existence. It is not hopeless though. We allow for these systems of oppression to flourish and with this same power we can burn them to the ground. Let's take flame to whatever we can. There are so many ways we can use whatever privilege and power we have to bring increased power and access to those who are denied it. And let that continue as a snowball. Included above are some suggestions of how you can come to the aid of trans, NB, and GNC people. CONT IN COMMENTS💗
Há uma grande desconexão daquilo a que chamamos "bifes" do que realmente é. O jogo de palavras que nos incutiram é um grande incentivo à desconexão ao que realmente está por trás de um "bife" e do que ele implica. As pessoas veem a carne como um produto não veem a morte de um animal completamente desnecessária. Uma vida tirada com brutalidade sendo ela com uma faca no pescoço, um tiro ou camara de gás.
Nos matadouros existem linhas de produção onde um animal entra vivo, amedrontado e desorientado e de onde sai completamente desmembrado e separado por peças. Estes matadouros estão preparados para tirar milhares de vidas diariamente. E tiram! Estão preparados para produzir tanto quanto seja necessário para satisfazer o consumo. Consumo esse feito por nós. Nós definimos o mercado. Se ninguém consumisse nada disto seria necessário.
Estes animais que dão entrada no matadouro são completamente invisíveis à população É importante dar-lhes visibilidade a eles. Marcar a nossa presença. Um último ato de compaixão antes da sua viagem sem regresso. Nunca é em vão, prestar testemunho.

I've been reading about the state of flow, psychic energy and creating optimal experiences - especially when the essence of socialization is to keep us dependent on a social system that exploits our energies for its own purposes.
"If values and institutions no longer provide as supportive framework as they once did, each person must use whatever tools are available to carve out a meaningful, enjoyable life."
What you see in this photo is me being captured in a moment of inner harmony and enjoying the sharing of a fulfilling experience.
They call this 'reclaiming experience' to be on ones path to personal liberation.
I want more order in my consciousness. To experience flow as often as possible. To shift my attention and to liberate psychic energies that get wasted on worry.

Día de profunda transformación. De decidir dejar conscientemente todos los patrones de carencia atrás y seguir activando mi abundancia. Comprender todos los miedos que me ponían las mismas trabas una y otra vez para que pudiera darme cuenta. Hoy me libero de la carencia y de esos miedos. Solo deseo caminar liviano por la vida y poder compartir quien soy, mi aprendizaje y mi amor. Gracias a todas las personas y no personas que aparecen en el camino para que despierte. A los seres sutiles y a la energía de las plantas y animales que me están guiando en este proceso. Enfoco nuevamente. Ahora comprendo que vivir significa atravesar todas las puertas.
Les comparto un collage que me resulta muy significativo en este proceso.
This year has been one of incomprehensible gratitude and alignment. This performance in 2017 was designed to summon a healing spirit and this year has been one of tremendous healing. I've faced a dickton of pain and unresolved trauma. It's been exhausting but super well worth it. Man then the icing on the cake is that both of these Robes from the performance. The Royal robes , as artifacts, found their way into their rightful homes. Major Collections. The gold robe is in a coveted private collection in LA and the white robe is in the JP Morgan Permanent Collection. You can't tell me nothin about the power of imagination and gratitude. I thought of the idea for this performance on a flight. @jessica.baran
spun my web of loose thoughts and pontifications into a super proposal that was accepted by @pulitzerarts
came through with the financial support and then the community showed out. My friends performed with me, it was amazing. That night we flipped the script on the audience too. Taking their phones they became the performers while the Royal family observed the rites performed. I believe in the power of performance art and "The Summoning" served its purpose. We grew closer, we communed, I have been healing fueled in part by an amplified energy that was born in this performance. I'm just overwhelmed with gratitude at the way life is unfolding. I feel so much energy guiding my divine coalescence. I'm thankful to everyone contributing to my growth and to each of you here along for the ride. I'm only pushing harder from here. Get ready to see a new beast in 2019.
As long as we are in these bodies, fear will always be more or less part of the journey. What makes the difference in living a conscious and more free life, is if we are brave enough to look the fear into the eyes without being scared of it. This is what makes us fearless.
PIYA-MAHARAJ . .
one of our beloved the great king
23 October of every year is a national holiday in Thailand as it marks “King Chulalongkorn Day" or known in Thai as "PIYA-Maharaj Day".
It is the memorial day of the passing away of King Chulalongkorn, otherwise known as King Rama V. King Chulalongkorn led several major reforms in Thailand, for example in the areas of Thai educational system, military affairs, State Railway and Slave Liberation Act without bloodshed in Thailand.

As you step out your door today, be like a child, live the joy of life.
Your soul and only real essence, knows the way.
Negative thoughts and emotions are only a distraction of your ego, the lower self, which battles for individuality, and creates expectations to fulfill. As you pursue this, the thought patterns created, bring you down to a state of despair, because there is no limit to desire.
Scriptures explain that the practice of contentment leads you to #liberation
If so necessary, fake it until you make it!

Prayer Does Work
I don't care what anyone tells you, you need to know prayer works. When you partner your will with the will of God, there's nothing you can't accomplish. Now I need to let you know this, there will be times when God will take God's time in answering your prayer(s), but if you hold out, don't give up, and keep presenting your request to God, you will get the right answer. By the way, every prayer you pray won't be answered with a 'Yes' because there are some prayers that are downright mean, ugly, and degrading and God is not in the business of promoting the works on the wicked. While having a teachable moment with His disciples, Jesus said, "If you abide in Me, and My words abide in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be done for you." As I close this message, I want you to meditate and reflect on the Scripture provided.

🙏❤ If you are interested in the thought of Ramana Maharshi you can follow me on my profile facebook : Alessandro Longi❤There is "you" and "he". If through the search for the truth of "I", "I" ceases, you will cease "you" and "he" and shine like the One. This is the natural state of one's being.🙏Asking "Who am I?" Inside the mind, and reaching the heart, the self collapses. At the same time the true "I" appears (like "I" "I"), and although it manifests itself as "I" it is not the ego, but the true being.❤Silence is unmistakable eloquence, the state of grace rising from within.❤Primary substance whose essence is the silence that I am.❤Your duty is to be: and not to be this or that.❤Ramana Maharshi❤🙏💙🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏
💙Se sei interessato al pensiero di Ramana Maharshi puoi seguirmi sul mio profilo facebook : Alessandro Longi🙏Esistendo l’ “io” esiste anche “tu” ed “egli”. Se attraverso la ricerca della verita’ dell’ “io”, l’ “io” cessa, cesseranno anche “tu” ed “egli” e brilleranno come l’Uno. Questo è lo stato naturale del proprio essere.💙Domandando “Chi sono io?” dentro la mente, e raggiungendo il cuore, l’ io crolla. Contemporaneamente il vero “io” appare (come “io” “io”), e che, benché si manifesti come “io”, è non l’ego, bensì il vero essere. 🙏Il silenzio è ľ impareggiabile eloquenza, lo stato di grazia che sorge dalľ interno💙La sostanza primordiale la cui essenza è il silenzio quello sono io🙏Il tuo dovere è quello di essere : e non di essere questo o quello.💙Ramana Maharshi
