If everyone wants to be somebody, I want to be somebody else
― Benny Bellamacina (via psych-quotes)
The human appetite for animal flesh is a driving force behind virtually every major category of environmental damage now threatening the human future—deforestation, erosion, fresh water scarcity, air and water pollution, climate change, biodiversity loss, social injustice, the destabilization of communities, and the spread of disease.

Nothing divides one so much as thought.

Growing is all about leaps into the seeming unknown. Before you can find your way home, you must linger in the place of not knowing. Stay here until the next step organically arises. Sit until the questions that need to be lived show themselves. By surrendering to the unknown, you create the space for a deeper knowing to emerge. Befriend your confusion. Don’t be fooled by its chaotic appearance—this is good confusion. It’s a sign that your soul is in transition. Welcome it as a friend that has come from far away to bring you home. Be open to it. Keep it close.
