letting go of what isn’t love…


tradition, ritual, practice, cultural norms, systems, institutions.

these words and what they stand for can hold great and even beneficial value. however, when aligned with power and othering they can be contributors to harm and suffering. when we attach to them and are loyal to them rather than valuing life and a commitment to a path of love, it can be (for lack of a better word), idolatrous.

love is our path and practice, and from where we measure all other things.

may we commit to a path of love, may we practice non-harming. may hearts open, may sanity prevail.
