Have you ever had a friend who got caught up with a lousy, dishonorable person?
That person would consistently lie to your friend... betray, abuse, and manipulate them. But they would always promise to keep your friend safe, so your friend accepted the crap treatment... holding out for the no-good person to deliver on their promised safety.
That's exactly how I feel about the world, and the sick governments and policies that are killing it. We are fed one rapid lie after another, from untrustworthy people who give destructive orders.
I am pro-breath.
BREATHING is now a weaponized issue.
An uncovered human face is now a signal of selfishness and rebellion.
I wonder if those who speak so harshly against "anti-maskers" and "mask-resistors," have even spent any time learning about germ theory, terrain theory, and true immunity? Or do they just trust a lying mouth, because it was trained at medical school?
A medical degree is not needed to know with certainty that oxygen is a non-negotiable REQUIREMENT for the human brain to function properly.
Self-suffocation has gone from normalized, to virtuous. And I happen to live in one of the most expensive places in the world to not comply:
The question "How are you?" is PROFOUND.
But it has been watered-down to a synonym for "Hello."
Forced or fake auto-responses of obligated okay-ness are expected.
(And if you are going through something tragic, it really doesn't matter! Every social encounter OPENS with this well-established Ritual of Insincerity.)
The question "How are you?" prompts an answer that begins with "I AM _____________."
This means many times each day, you are invited to SPEAK THE MOST POWERFUL STATEMENT that can be spoken of yourself.
And the socially-expected thing to do, is be QUICK + SLICK with your answer.
For a change... TAKE YOUR TIME, and tell your truth. ✍🏾
