About this piece
I’m so incredibly blessed to have the friends I do. Last night’s impromptu dinner & chill with Adam & Melovee was a lovely and much-needed chance to reconnect, to regroup as three after such a transformational weekend.
Everyone I met at the Summer Solstice Celebration has deeply inspired me to create again: poems, music, photomanipulations (for the first time in a long time), and more.
Collectively, we carry so much ambition to build together. Talks of properties in many places, traveling to other communities to meet, lead, and train others on the playbook A Consciousness Rising has begun developing this year, give me real, concrete hope that the state of humanity isn’t completely doomed.
We have a chance to reclaim our minds, as Terence McKenna so aptly put it, and our very souls from those who would seek to imprison us, intentionally or otherwise, in the cages and trappings of modern society overvaluing economic growth and all but forgetting how we came to be so privileged in the first place.
We have the feasible but challenging opportunity, the duty, to consciously create a new reality for hundreds, thousands, millions of people like us. Not “employees” or “consumers,” but creators, explorers, pioneers, lovers, cultivators, leaders, kings and queens, children of our universe.
The journey is long—longer by far than any single generation can hope to witness. But, by rising up to the challenge, stepping into our predecessors’ shoes, and carrying the torch as far as we can take it, we have the power to transform humankind into the race we deserve to be:
Proud. Loving. Creative. One.
