#resistancelog (Freedom Edition)
#resistancelog (Freedom edition) Some folks have written me privately asking whether I worry about losing some business with my activism. Technically, I probably have lost some but I've also gained some so it's been sort of a wash. And honestly, it's not that I don't care about all of that. It's just that I care MORE about living as who I am and to achieve the status of being absolutely free.
And it's another reason to live within my means and resist being an over-consumer of stuff I don't need ... material stuff that bogs me down ... making me think I need to earn more to consume more ... all to protect that which makes me have to silence myself more. Such bullshit. (Does this topic intrigue you? I recommend that you watch the documentary titled Minimalism. It's on Netflix. It'll rock your world.) Here's more on this topic from the amazing Audre Lorde:
"And that deep and irreplaceable knowledge of my capacity for joy comes to demand from all of my lfie that it be lived within the knowledge that such satisfaction is possible, and does not have to be called marriage, nor god, nor an afterlife ... and this is a grave responsibility, projected from within each of us, not to settle for the convenient, the shoddy, the conventionally expected, nor the merely safe."
