Two younger (white) (college age) (boys) who do not know me, walk past as I am meditating next to a pine tree, and one says to the other-(directed at me...) “shorter shorts, definitely” and I can’t help but give them a death glare.
I am not an angry person, but if you care to know, I have become more stoic and reserved, and speak up only when it is necessary or helpful, not because I’m arrogant or a feminist, but as an act of self-preservation and because one of my biggest aspirations in life is to live in peace.
As a student at a “prestigious” California university, I recognize that younger generations (and some professors) are confused, absorbed by their phones 📱and social lives, and resentful of the privilege it is to be at such a rad #college

As a white girl, I feel comfortable calling out college-age #whiteboys
on their own #predispositions
towards all women, especially intelligent, strong, spiritual, maternal, even financially inclined women, and women of color.
Women need to do this also, it goes both ways. #unbrainwashyourself
Cal Poly University has somewhat of an #exclusive
student culture but has made great strides towards #inclusion
The reality is, humanity has not evolved past hate, judgement and #racism
, but (my gift to you) please recognize that these things are illusory, and only cause suffering in the self and others.
has some great messages on how to #react
to hate with #compassion
no matter what kind of energy is thrown at you.
I am about to Re-read this book, (because I’m awake at 3am, and probably need to) and would encourage y’all to read it as well! #bemindful
