So long as you distract your mind from its dreams, it will not know them for what they are; you will always be being taken in by the appearance of things, because you will not have grasped their true nature - Marcel Proust
For the last few years, this week and weekend has been spent living in a field in Somerset having an absolute blast with some of my favs 💕

The summer solstice is regarded as occurring in Cancer (the Crab), which the Egyptians called the scarab--a beetle of the family Lamellicornes, the head of the insect kingdom, and sacred to the Egyptians as the symbol of Eternal Life. It is evident that the constellation of the Crab is represented by this peculiar creature because the sun, after passing through this house, proceeds to walk backwards, or descend the zodiacal arc. Cancer is the symbol of generation, for it is the house of the Moon, the great Mother of all things and the patroness of the life forces of Nature. Diana, the moon goddess of the Greeks, is called the Mother of the World. Concerning the worship of the feminine or maternal principle, Richard Payne Knight writes: "By attracting or heaving the waters of the ocean, she naturally appeared to be the sovereign of humidity; and by seeming to operate so powerfully upon the constitutions of women, she equally appeared to be the patroness and regulatress of nutrition and passive generation: whence she is said to have received her nymphs, or subordinate personifications, from the ocean; and is often represented by the symbol of the sea crab, an animal that has the property of spontaneously detaching from its own body any limb that has been hurt or mutilated, and reproducing another in its place." (The Symbolical Language of Ancient Art and Mythology.) This water sign, being symbolic of the maternal principle of Nature, and recognized by the pagans as the origin of all life, was a natural and consistent domicile of the moon.

Here’s some early American History for y’all since so many of my people were looking at me crazy and confused when I said “Happy Juneteenth” to them today. I love, study, and research history heavily, and being a Native Black African American(Descendant of Slaves) here in America, I felt the need to educate some. Now with that being said family, “Juneteenth” is the oldest known celebration acknowledging the ending of “Chattel Slavery” of Africans in the United States. It’s celebrated on June 19th, because it was on June 19th 1865, In Galveston, TX that Union Soldiers led by Major General Gordon Granger came with the news that the Civil War had ended and that the slaves were now free. Now this was two and a half years after President Lincoln’s Emancipation Proclamation, and another true fact that contributed greatly to the Emancipation Proclamation were the Gullah Geechee Wars(1739-1859); and there’s a lot more tied into all of this history as well that you can research yourself to caught up and enlightened on some crucial early American History. Remember family, the physical chains may have been removed, but as a collective, we still need to work on removing the mental chains, spiritual chains, and emotional trauma that remain as a result of the horrific “Chattel Slavery” that our Ancestors had to endure.
Divinely Inspired. Spiritually Motivated.
Knowledge. Wisdom. Understanding.
Relations are easily built cause we as human can’t stay alone and always need someone’s company to share our feelings.
To last any relationship it requires lots of efforts. It also requires understandings, adaptability, forgiveness and willingness to sacrifice for each other.
It’s all there in our mind. We love someone not because he or she is actually good or beautiful but because we feel so :) same is the case with hate.. surprisingly very often in actual life the person we hate could be the most understanding and accommodative one and who we love could be the very opposite of it..!
Thinking is something which is a continuous process and we can’t stop it.
Yes when we talk we have all the time to evaluate, what and why we are talking..! And sometimes not speaking says more than all the words in the world.
The role of a writer is to write something which most of the people are unable to say.
But it’s a great responsibility...
We can write anything what we think,
but before that we need to think a lot about what we want to write.
We don’t achieve anything new by clinging to our past.
By doing it we would revisit to something which we want to forget. Even if we have glorious past which we cherish, it won’t help us to change our today.
