When we don’t mind, our spirit can see through our eyes unobstructed, unshielded, unmasked.
In a culture obsessed with logic and order,

Listen inside/around you for this frequent fallacy:
I was at the gym and I hadn’t eaten all day, and my brain was like, “Karen, the stairmaster can wait.”
Rough year to be a white woman.
