Coffee on my terrace this morning. The view of the Monaco coast below. Appreciating the beauty of nature. I can even see Italy from here. 😎

Radical Modesty: Become Who You Are


Alan Watts once titled a book of his Become Who You Are - a riff on Nietzsche’s riff on Pindar “Become What You Are”.

It’s a simple expression - a reminder if you will - that you already are who you are, so rather than working hard to escape from your problems, focus being who you already are….

Sometimes life is hard. No matter how positive we aim to be, seeing our loved ones grow old, seeings our friends suffer losses or enduring our own personal trials, sometimes life just HURTS.

But we do not need to suffer. It is a choice. And we need not suffer alone.

I am reminded that we can choose to support one another, to witness our pain, and to celebrate our blessings of togetherness. 

Life may still hurt at times, but the soulful presence of a true friend reminds us of the beauty, grace and love life has to offer. 

Saturday blessings to all!

Some of my friends here in Europe don’t understand why I cry hearing the news of Zimmerman’s acquittal. The defense team’s case was made, the decision to acquit was made…but behind all of the ‘facts’ and the way they were presented, there is a truth. A young black boy is dead for no reason.

I am sad because I know personally how it is to walk around in America with brown skin and to be judged. Yes, even me with my café au lait color.

I know how it is to be profiled because of my skin color while innocently perusing the makeup aisle in a department store.

I know how it is to be eyed with suspicion when shopping for a luxury car. And here I am a highly educated woman, a person who has been very successful in the media.

I have been discriminated against just for being black. Judgments have been made about me without looking into my heart, my motives and my inner value.

But I am still alive to pray for the ignorance of the racial profilers. I am here to befriend the other oppressed people, to unite with them, to dream a new world where skin color, sexual orientation, religious preference don’t matter.

I’m here to teach my young daughter that regardless of the color of her caramel brown skin she is an individual whose dreams, goals and ideals matter. I’m here to be a role model of how forgiveness looks, of how compassion walks the talk…I’m here to be an embodiment of Divine love for my child, and all living beings on this planet and in all possible universes.
