Two days in a row now I have had a text from Miles: Where's the Zinn post?
I've been waiting for an internalized sense of the jump-off point to the Sixth Chakra. Because for me, Zinn was primarily a visionary, although I clearly grasp he comes to it by way of Fifth Chakra notoriety.
here's the exercise: follow this link
Look at the banner picture. Then look at the three visible book titles over his left shoulder. Look back at his face. And then come back here or scroll down until you see the same picture, as well as the one to its right.
soften everything inside
and have a bit of a think
concerning au courant/Trendy booklist forms of paying attention
the real deal.
If you really want to get real
about being white
(rather than simply 'acknowledging')
I say it all the time
specifically because he paid attention
He spoke out - and waaaaay loudly -
during a time
when it was seriously risky
rather than de rigueur fashion
to do as much.
have a think on that too as well
as your reading and speaking habits
in relation to specifically what guides both.
Go to your nearest mirror
look at who you are
and answer this question:
where do you want to be as we leave this chakra and move on to really paying attention to that which is equally Within and Without You
Figure that out and stand tall in it
Be what you say. Listen through ears that are committed to making an ongoing choice
to hear or not hear
To speak or not
something's changed for you this month
because of this month
including the trial I refuse to watch
because I'm not letting my
heart break any farther
simply because my Other half
isn't willing to sit by
(not any more)
while my white half
does what all the other
"good" white people
good white people
are telling me
I "really should"
speaking this truthfully
with the sense that all my chakras
are pretty well in balance
is completely new territory.
I've done it as I intended
on my other blog
and now I'm getting around to what Miles really meant
by The Zinn Post
here and now.
please don't set it aside:
in our collective
as a mere
Let it set a good strong root
that sustains the rest of your life
as well as collective experience
