It is the untruths that often cause us wars, labels & hatred amongst the world & lives that are more difficult for no truthful reason. Like the Black civil rights movement in 1964 giving another set of humans more equality & the only reason they did not have equality was just because the the color of their skin. The sex of a human meaning less opportunity. Between 1918 vs 2018 things women were prevented from doing by law a century ago: Applying for credit, working in the legal & civil service, inheriting & bequeathing property, claiming equal pay, prosecuting a spouse for rape, being in the olympics, voting & running a marathon. Now life has given some justice but only through a violent and hateful history. Today we have other untruths as well, seemingly small but from little things bit things grow. What I want to see is humans are treated as humans as we all have a heart, blood, breathe & walk this earth, we are all one race the human race. Yesterday for social media I saw wonderful news on Instagram @bumpbirthandbeyond said it’s official IG & FB have officially amended their censorship policies to allow uncensored childbirth related images. This is amazing but may I ask what is the difference between women with nipples that aren’t attached to birth? The logic is confusing that art is not allowed nipples and even if it is on the same womans body, unless it is attached to birth it is inappropriate? I am wondering how we can justify these untruths… Nipples create lives but society has twisted the truth so beautifully we think we damaged lives by showing them; when really they are built to create and build lives. Society has made sex such a big part of the body that people do not realise that sex and bodies do not coexist they can actually be separate too. At some point we need to realise that societies truths aren’t all making sense….we need to open the thoughts to new possibilities and not by creating wars like before and hating, judging or condemning others but instead gently giving new understandings to the untruths, by sharing with respect, compassion, love and kindness to the world other ways to think.
To me movement is freedom the more I move the freer I feel internally and externally. I feel I come home and move away from attachments that do not serve me and society and others expectations. I find often like anyone honestly; I get affected by the labels, numbers, judgments and expectations. However movement frees me to become aware again and remember that all we really need to be happy, peaceful or love is to be who we are right here and now fully, wholly and unapologetically. I hear a lot of people struggle saying they are not enough because their social media accounts no longer hold a positive transaction of numbers to make them feel valued and enough. When I look at my daughter and watch her happiness. It has nothing to do with numbers. It is all to do with doing what makes her heart soar no matter what others hold value to it and being able to share it with someone unapologetically without judgment, numbers or expectations, a genuine unconditional loving connection. We adults continually feel not enough because society teaches us this big untruth that our value lies in approval of number, living up to expectations, being better than we are and/or others… We feel unworthy if we do not have enough followers, likes, kind words, do better than another, have messages unanswered by people we write to or money not enough in the bank… But our value never changed, only the things external to us did. Society taught us a big untruth connection is in likes, comments and numbers and worthiness is in the height of the number and that brings connection as well as the more numbers the more connected we are. But that is the untruth. What we fail to realise is our value, self worth isn’t in numbers, expectations and validation of others. If we keep chasing numbers and acceptance we will always fall short of being enough because our self worth only comes from us. When we own our own self worth like our children, we cannot be swayed by others and when we have thriving unconditional connections not in numbers in real human soulful connections; when we fall or are different we have people to keep our fires alight when they might want to go out. And this is the real self worth and connection that brings us to realise we own our happiness and thats when our life truly comes into harmony and peace.
