In fact a mature person does not fall in love, he rises in love. The word ’fall’ is not right. Only immature people fall; they stumble and fall down in love. Somehow they were managing and standing. They cannot manage and they cannot stand – they find a woman and they are gone, they find a man and they are gone. They were always ready to fall on the ground and to creep. They don’t have the backbone, the spine; they don’t have that integrity to stand alone.
A mature person has the integrity to be alone. And when a mature person gives love, he gives without any strings attached to it: he simply gives. And when a mature person gives love, he feels grateful that you have accepted his love, not vice versa. He does not expect you to be thankful for it – no, not at all, he does not even need your thanks. He thanks you for accepting his love. And when two mature persons are in love, one of the greatest paradoxes of life happens, one of the most beautiful phenomena: they are together and yet tremendously alone; they are together so much so that they are almost one. But their oneness does not destroy their individuality, in fact, it enhances it: they become more individual.


Two mature persons in love help each other to become more free. There is no politics involved, no diplomacy, no effort to dominate. How can you dominate the person you love? Just think over it. Domination is a sort of hatred, anger, enmity. How can you think of dominating a person you love? You would love to see the person totally free, independent; you will give him more individuality. That’s why I call it the greatest paradox: they are together so much so that they are almost one, but still in that oneness they are individuals. Their individualities are not effaced – they have become more enhanced. The other has enriched them as far as their freedom is concerned.


Immature people falling in love destroy each other’s freedom, create a bondage, make a prison. Mature persons in love help each other to be free; they help each other to destroy all sorts of bondages. And when love flows with freedom there is beauty. When love flows with dependence there is ugliness.

please at least say hi to the people cleaning up after you where ever you are (janitors, dorm crew, etc.)…a “thank you” every now and then would be nice too…they gotta literally deal with your garbage on a daily basis so it’s the least you could do

Watch: These kids from Ferguson have an important message for all white people

Sometimes it takes the voices of children to speak truth to power, especially when it comes to the evils of racism.

Without question, the widespread police brutality and abuse, both in Ferguson, Mo., and around the country, has elevated the consciousness of young people across America. But many others still are laboring on the illusion that we are living in a post-racial nation following the election of President Barack Obama.

These kids send the perfect wake up call | Follow micdotcom

Facebook and the world at large I am sharing this video to expose the excessive force by a Hammond Indiana police officer to my 17 year old niece Jada Glasper…she weighs less than 100 lbs soak and wet she was arrested, choked and punched in the face by a police officer accusing her of Jay walking
When she refused the ticket due to her stating to the officer that she hadnt jaywalked…things escalated beyond the scope of the Law…
As a concerned aunt and God Mother to my niece I am beyond furious and angry that our youth continues to be subject of discriminating actions by individuals and unregulated law enforcement officers that feel they can harm versus protect every day citizens especially a young 3.8 GPA.. honors student who is just starting to come into her young adulthood.
Actions such as these leave me to feel extreme disgust for police officers that continue to display outright prejudices against our African American people.
As a media personality and advocate for rights of all people…This will be the first of many public actions and civil rights awareness to combat the injustices to my niece and the many millions of youth such as Trayvon Martin & Mike Brown that’s has fallen victim to racial injustices.
I am so blessed to say that Jada is alive and can speak for herself and bear witness to this unlawful treatment that occurred September 3 2014.
I am summoning my extended relationships in friendships, family and social circles to share this posting and take action and speak up to put a end to this foolishness. Sincerely…Sabrina Sonny Jones-Smith advocate, producer and media personality of LouddMouth Radio..

Rant: Ray Rice Incident (My Two Cents)- bronzegoddess01

_____

situations like this are in the media because it’s dealing with celebrities. but what is more gut wrenching is that there are women out there in abusive relationships. the woman in this case is showing clear signs of a battered woman. i hope this all is a wake up call for you beautiful women out there.
