Future, Life, and Love: LOOK AGAIN AT THAT DOT. THAT'S HERE. THAT'S HOME. THAT'S US. ON IT EVERYONE YOU LOVE, EVERYONE YOU KNOW, EVERYONE YOU EVER HEARD OF, EVERY HUMAN BEING WHO EVER WAS, LIVED OUT THEIR LIVES. THE AGGREGATE OF OUR JOY AND SUFFERING THOUSANDS OF CONFIDENT RELIGIONS, IDEOLOGIES, AND ECONOMIC DOCTRINES, EVERY HUNTER AND FORAGER, EVERY HERO AND COWARD, EVERY CREATOR AND DESTROYER OF CIVILIZATION, EVERY KING AND PEASANT, EVERY YOUNG COUPLE IN LOVE, EVERY MOTHER AND FATHER, HOPEFUL CHILD, INVENTOR AND EXPLORER, EVERY TEACHER OF MORALS EVERY CORRUPT POLITICIAN, EVERY "SUPERSTAR, EVERY "SUPREME LEADER, EVERY SAINT AND SINNER IN THE HISTORY OF OUR SPECIES LIVED THERE--ON A MOTE OF DUST SUSPENDED IN A SUNBEAM THE EARTH IS A VERY SMALL STAGE IN A VAST COSMIC ARENA. THINK OF THE RIVERS OF BLOOD SPILLED BY ALL THOSE GENERALS AND EMPERORS SO THAT, IN GLORY ฮต TRIUMPH THEY COULD BECOME THE MOMENTARY MASTERS OF A FRACTION OF A DOT. THINK OF THE ENDLESS CRUELTIES VISITED BY THE INHABITANTS OF ONE CORNER OF THIS PIXEL ON THE SCARCELY DISTINGUISHABLE INHABITANTS OF SOME OTHER CORNER, HOW FREQUENT THEIR MISUNDERSTANDINGS, HOW EAGER THEY ARE TO KILL ONE ANOTHER, HOW FERVENT THEIR HATREDS OUR POSTURINGS, OUR IMAGINED SELF-IMPORTANCE, THE DELUSION THAT WE HAVE SOME PRIVILEGED POSITION IN THE UNIVERSE, ARE CHALLENGED BY THIS POINT OF PALE LIGHT OUR PLANET IS A LONELY SPECK IN THE GREAT ENVELOPING COSMIC DARK. IN OUR OBSCURITY, IN ALL THIS VASTNESS, THERE IS NO HINT THAT HELP WILL COME FROM ELSEWHERE TO SAVE US FROM OURSELVES THE EARTH IS THE ONLY WORLD KNOWN SO FAR TO HARBOR LIFE. THERE IS NOWHERE ELSE, AT LEAST IN THE NEAR FUTURE, TO WHICH OUR SPECIES COULD MIGRATE. VISIT, YES SETTLE, NOT YET. LIKE IT OR NOT, FOR THE MOMENT THE EARTH IS WHERE WE MAKE OUR STAND IT HAS BEEN SAID THAT ASTRONOMY IS A HUMBLING AND CHARACTER-BUILDING EXPERIENCE. THERE IS PERHAPS NO BETTER DEMONSTRATION OF THE FOLLY OF HUMAN CONCEITS THAN THIS DISTANT IMAGE OF OUR TINY WORLD. TO ME, IT UNDERSCORES OUR RESPONSIBILITY TO DEAL MORE KINDLY WITH ONE ANOTHER, AND TO PRESERVE AND CHERISH THE PALE BLUE DOT, THE ONLY HOME WE'VE EVER KNOWN -CARL SAGAN, PALE BLUE DOT, 1994 spacevisuals:Pale Blue Dot by Carl Sagan [1x1px]

Af, Fam, and Family: HAPPY HUMPDAY IG FAM!!!! How's your week treating you so far? I've been getting a lot of DM's asking about my posts from my IG story yesterday. Didn't mean to freak y'all out I'm fine!!! I just went to my oncologist yesterday for my 6 month check up. NBD not totally dying or anything. ๐Ÿ˜œI had surgery in March of 2016 and another procedure in Nov last year. I haven't had to undergo chemo or radiation thank GOD!!! ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿฝ Going back again later this year and as of now still not sure where things are at but that won't stop me!!! I try not to post too much about my health battles because I refuse to be defined by a temporary problem. I've got a lot I want to do with my life and I won't allow ANYTHING to get in my way!!! My Mom encouraged me to share that part of myself with y'all as I'm clearly not your typical cancer patient and it's weird AF to go through this process with the life I post about online. Going through this and still having to go through a divorce has been a painful but very humbling experience for me. It's given me a new perspective on life and I value and appreciate so many of the little things life has to offer because I know how short and precious it can be. NOT very LA of me. I feel like the black sheep in this town because all I care about is the making great art, working, my family, my health and giving back. I could give two shits about the parties and the scene!!! Part of my job is getting to connect w- u wonderful humans so thank you all for supporting me in every possible way!!! ๐Ÿ˜˜๐Ÿ˜‡๐ŸŒˆ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿฝ I absolutely love inspiring y'all and connecting with y'all!!! I hope this post inspires you to keep going no matter what's dragging you down in your life right now!!! Just know that it's only temporary and YOU ARE IN CONTROL OF HOW YOU REACT TO IT!!! I truly have faith and hope that everything in life will get better no matter what the circumstances are!!! So after this long speech today I want to share one of my favorite inspirational quotes: "Everything can be taken from a man but one thing: the last of human freedoms- to choose one's attitude in any given set of circumstances, to choose one's own way." - Victor E. Frankl
Bailey Jay, Beautiful, and Cars: Look deep into this child's eyes, what do you see. We took this picture when we were in Somalia, I hope to return one day, it was such a beautiful and humbling experience. When there is a famine, children are the most affected. The 2011 famine in Somalia, cost the lives of over 200,000 children... There were many factors that contributed to this, but I think the presiding factor is that some humans, have been dehumanised by other humans, to the point where we don't even care if they die or live. In fact many people globally don't think or care about people who are different to them. The fact of the matter is this, we are all different, this is beautiful and should be celebrated. Globally it seems that we care less about Black and brown people, muslims and women... I'm not making this up, just switch on the news, African muslims are being depicted as terrorists everyday. It's silly really, didn't a European goverment just drop the worlds largest none nuclear bomb, but they will never be called terrorists, in Afghanistan, where westerners invaded to control the world supply of Opium, so they can make methadone, Codeine and morphine, and control the trillion dollar vein of lithium "found" there, so we can have batteries in our phones and cars. I am not Somali but I am African, I am not Muslim but I do believe in Unity, I am not a woman but I do have a mother, I don't have any children but I do support orphanages. You might be none of the above, but you are human. There is still a famine going on, children are still dying, what are you going to do about it? Look into this child's eyes, what do you see? I see you chakabars โค๏ธ๐Ÿ‡ธ๐Ÿ‡ด

Memes, Oblige, and Evolve: DON'T KILL PEOPLE WITH KINDNESS, BECAUSE NOT EVERYONE DESERVES YOUR KINDNESS. KILL PEOPLE WITH SILENCE, BECAUSE NOT EVERYONE DESERVES YOUR ATTENTION Personally I say don't kill people just love them โค or leave them. Some people never grow, evolve or better themselves. I no longer chill with people like this. In life, I can only speak from the perspective of my experiences. As I grow older and wiser I have been learning more about the world, this affects my opinions and decisions day to day. Once you make an observation, you have an obligation to make decisions, based on the new information. Yet some people will still behave in the same negative manner, as they did all those years ago. Some of the reasons that people don't evolve: They don't read books! They are tying to copy celebrities. They can't stop smoking, drinking, taking drugs and eating sh*t foods. They revel in their ignorance. They don't question anything. They aren't humble enough to learn from somebody else with more experience. They believe everything the media tells them. They are in a spiritual battle and don't want to objectively analyse themselves. Some of the reasons people evolve: They experience some sort of life changing traumatic event. They read and study. They start to love themselves without negative judgement. They learn to believe in themselves. They get a mentor, someone with more experience than them and they learn from them. They have children and want to give their children a childhood, that they don't have to spend the rest of their lives recovering from. Somebody close to them passes away and this humbles them, making them change their behavioural habits. There are many more reasons why people grow and why people stay the same. But remember, the wiser person knows that they will always have much to learn. I have no time for forced conversion, people who refuse to grow and unnecessary relationships. I don't feel sorry for this in any way, shape or form. chakabars
