This next collection of contemplative reflections is a political call to action.
Collectively, this group emphasizes the importance of recognizing gender and identity as fluid and natural aspects of humanity, and essential to our personal and social liberation. Each contemplation advocates for embracing diversity, challenging societal norms, and fostering acceptance without conditions.
It’s really as simple as just being who you are without prejudice.
And that’s precisely what scares the crap out of those trapped by dogmatism and religious fundamentalism – you can be free and still belong.
Contemplative Reflections on embracing diversity and challenging gender norms.
Nature encompasses all gender identities,
Resistance to fluidity
Opposes nature itself.
Be the Solution
Eradicating queer prejudice
Requires active involvement.
Embrace diversity to dispel gender binary norms,
Evolve thinking to be part of the solution.
Embracing the Gap
Margins taught me to embrace my unique identity.
The gap is where otherness
And self-acceptance flourish.
The margin is where limits fall.
Boundaries through Self-Care
To establish boundaries
Honour your needs
And your identity.
Celebrate Fluid Qualities
Embrace masculine and feminine qualities
Those who seek to control identities
Should be challenged,
Not the qualities.
Identity Suppression: A Crime Against Humanity
Suppressing identity is a tragedy.
It robs people
Of their essence and expression,
Leading to inner turmoil
And even death.
Energy of Connection
Identity politics created division.
Focus on shared nature,
Not just labels.
Avoid aggressive energies
Find common ground.
Acceptance without conditions
Breeds love and well-being.
It opens hearts,
Embracing diverse identities,
Fostering individual and humanitarian change.
