Fortunately, some are born with spiritual immune systems that sooner or later give rejection to the illusory worldview grafted upon them from birth through social conditioning. They begin sensing that something is amiss, and start looking for answers. Inner knowledge and anomalous outer experiences show them a side of reality others are oblivious to, and so begins their journey of awakening. Each step of the journey is made by following the heart instead of following the crowd and by choosing knowledge over the veils of ignorance. – Henri Bergson

And I’ve learned that there are things that go wrong that don’t always get fixed or get put back together the way they were before. I’ve learned that some broken things stay broken, and I’ve learned that you can get through bad times and keep looking for better ones, as long as you have people who love you.

Taking away our freedom, taking away our right
Taking away that what we have, they will conquer, they will fight.
United we stand up and say No, no longer.
People will become slowly stronger,
When the see it is all a lie.
They will no longer buy, their story’s, their vision,
People will make their own decision.
To raise and to stop this war,
To fight for freedom and so much more.
People will strive, connect and will succeed,
A new earth full of love is what we need.
