Black Lives matter.
In the Bhagavad Gita, Arjuna the great warrior second guesses and essentially freezes before fighting the army of the Pandavas. During this internal struggle, he calls upon Krishna for advice.
Among many beautiful lessons, a central message is that part of a human’s dharma, or purpose, is that of action. Even when we feel overwhelmed or scared of failure. Or paralyzed by fear.
It is also made clear that within all of us are both human and divine qualities. Full stop. No exceptions.
There is room for improvement in all of us as we accept the fact that we are human, we have ignored the civil liberties of black and brown people for too long, and it is up to all of us to find that divine spark and act from there to create lasting change.
For each view, I will donate $1 up to $100 to black owned businesses and initiatives. I also ask that you say these mantras earnestly and from a place of humility; to be okay with being human. But to know you are divine and to act from that space.
