Religion is cultural mythology. Spirituality is self-awareness. The two have nothing in common.

Everyday I go to this clinic in trenton I am shocked at the disparities that exist. Not only in terms of income but in education and availability of necessities like grocery stores. It is easy to pick out issues like obesity, welfare and homelessness and condemn people for being lazy and self indulgent.

The reading level of trenton is 3rd grade. That shows a major deficit in the education system. On my mile walk from the train station to the clinic I count numerous fast food restaurants but not one grocery store. The area is known as a food desert, meaning that there is serious lack of fresh produce to supply the population.

The truth is we have built a system that is conducive only for individuals who already are in some place of privilege and many people fall by the wayside.

Modern Gentrification.

justlizthoughts:

What I hate the most about gentrification is the message that it sends. It’s not until a neighborhood is going through gentrification (PoC out, White people in) that it is worthy of health food stores, better security, and other infrastructures that promotes living well.

Sun filtered through the window screen
The lightness of spring’s cool breeze
The comfort of a hot cup of ginger tea

Simple pleasures.

Sticking with uncertainty is how we learn to relax in the midst of chaos, how we learn to be cool when the ground beneath us suddenly disappears
