It’s never an easy thing to be a truth-sayer. But it harms my soul far more deeply to stay silent in the name of social mores or diplomacy, than to speak what I know to be necessary. My criticisms of Privilege, the mass marketing of "holistic health" that is aimed at the very well off; bias and opinion presented as fact (I tried, I really did, to get through the cancer thing about animals currently making the rounds, but I was going to break my monitor and I can’t afford a new one)…the Law of Attraction LIE…the epidemic of Dunning-Kruger syndrome…I’ve spoken out on all of the above, and made enemies, that’s for sure. But I’ve also made friends, and gathered a community around me of those who want to live in authenticity, work with all kinds of peoples, animals, the earth…I’ve gathered (and I’ve joined) communities where my devotion to the earth, and to justice and to the truth as I see it, is appreciated and even celebrated.For them, their presence in my life in so many ways, gratitude is too small a word. <3
To those who see me in a negative way, I have nothing to say to that…it’s your opinion, your place on your path, perhaps what I reflect is uncomfortable for you, or how I say it, too blunt. If you knew the first thing about me, you’d know how intrinsically kind hearted I am, how willing – eager! – to support the work of others, how thirsty for knowledge I am – not so I can inflate myself before others, but so I can HELP…and if that involves speaking some plain truths along the way, know that I do so with a need to help, to share what I can, at the very least, to offer another way of looking at

As I grow older I may speak more softly, but I will never, ever, stop speaking my truth. With all the pain and burden that entails. Even as I continue to grow, change, and work within myself, for the benefit of all, with the guidance of the Elders who have gone before, and the forest, and All My Relations..
