“You too are a tree. During a storm of emotions, you should not stay at the level of the head or the heart, which are like the top of the tree. You have to leave the heart, the eye of the storm, and come back to the trunk of the tree. Your trunk is one centimeter below your navel. Focus there, paying attention only to the movement of your abdomen, and continue to breathe.” 

— Thích Nhất Hạnh

oH MAN I COMPLETELY FORGOT TO SHARE

I FINALLY GOT TO USE THE ‘well i don’t trust the government’ AGAINST AN ANTI-MASKER THIS WEEKEND

i was buying wood at the camp ground and the store clerk pitched a bitch fit about not being able to understand me through the mask and then rolled her eyes and informed me we don’t have to wear those anymore bc the mandate’s already been lifted

AND THE LOOK ON HER FACE

WHEN I LOOKED HER STRAIGHT IN THE EYE

AND SAID

“oh, well I don’t trust what the government says. I’d rather make up my own mind.”

UNO REVERSE MOTHERFUCKER

ID: tweet from @ShotgunWife with text reading “just some ideas” followed by a meme image of a generic, black mask overlayed with the following text.

keeping wearing a mask because it’s fun…

use these lines when asked “why are you wearing that?”

“it’s a free country, I ain’t no sheep, no government gonna tell me when I can wear a mask, my body my choice, it’s for religious reasons, I’m just ugly fuck off.”

The last line of text in the image reads “now it’s our turn”.

One thing that really sticks out in my mind was a project I had to do in 8th grade science class. We had to do a project about the history of the atom.

I found it fascinating. Even now I’m kinda amazed seeing how human knowledge changes over time. Seeing the fundamental building blocks of the world go from platonic elements to electron orbital clouds was profound.

I remember it being really interesting seeing how scientists got from one step to the next. I enjoyed reading about their thought processes and seeing them prove exactly why a model was inaccurate.

What I LOVED though, was all the wrong answers. I was OBSESSED with shit like Aetherial Wind and Phlogiston Theory. The current model of the atom is built on hundreds of different models of the universe that we now know are false.

I think my obsession with now-false theories of cosmogeny is what got me into Alchemy which got me into everything else.
