It’s fine to believe what we want, but it’s not fine to think people are less than us because they think different. Different is beautiful. Variety is gracious. We live in a time of two: you or me. It’s so cold.” ― Karl Kristian Flores

    Live and let Live. We think at the heat of freedom it means doing whatever we want. The true force behind freedom is allowing the things we don't agree with to exist

    Respect, and tolerance are not to much to ask. I don't want the rest of the world to be like me, I want them to accept me for who I am, and I should do the same for them.

    Indeed. Lakota teachings made me realize that EVERYTHING has a soul and a place.

    Everything is a node, I am node, the blade of grass is an node, the earth is a node. Connected with intersecting lines, the interactions the nodes have together might be what we call consciousness.

“Water is fluid, soft, and yielding. But water will wear away rock, which is rigid and cannot yield. As a rule, whatever is fluid, soft, and yielding will overcome whatever is rigid and hard. This is another paradox: what is soft is strong.” – Lao Tzu

    Hey! This is probably not the right place for this, but I can't access the site in any other way. I'm excited to start posting and to become part of the community, but even though I tried to set up my account on Friday, a couple of days ago, I still haven't received my verification email. I checked all my folders, triple checked that the email on the account was correct, used the "change email" option to prompt another verification to be sent out, changed it back, and...

“There is a pleasure in the pathless woods. There is a rapture on the lonely shore. There is society, where none intrudes by the deep sea, and music in its roar. I love not man the less, but nature more.” – Lord Byron

    I gazed—and gazed—but little thought
    What wealth the show to me had brought:

    For oft, when on my couch I lie
    In vacant or in pensive mood,
    They flash upon that inward eye
    Which is the bliss of solitude;
    And then my heart with pleasure fills,
    And dances with the daffodils.-William Wordsworth
