My sister Shailene Woodley standing with frontline communities to protect their land and water from the Dakota Access pipeline! Stay strong -prayers out!
shailene woodly: for me it’s never been about finding a voice or even figuring out my role. it’s been more about listening to the guidance and really standing strong and striving for something…. standing up for something because my heart tell s me to .. not because my mind tells me to..
shailene: if my mind wants to do something because it sees something’s wrong, i have to make sure that my heart and mind are in alignment..
shailene: there are so many things to fight for.. so many things wrong.. that if we force a particular type of activism instead of really connecting w something that we’re meant to do, then it’s easy to get lost in the chaos..
the last thing we need in this world right now is activists lost in chaos..
we need people who are grounded/centered and in prayer..
begs a mech.. to facil/ground the chaos of 7 bn people listening to their heart..
shailene: it’s important to remain humble and to remove ego from the situation.. so that we might actually listen.. i believe that a reason we have these divisions amongst our communities is our inability to listen.. to receive that info and to learn
shailene: at end of day, you take labels/politics/divisions aside.. we’re all human beings just trying to survive and do the best we possibly can… science has its place..but the most important thing we can do is listen to stories and listen to experience .. and indigenous communities hold these stories and these experiences in a way that i haven’t witnessed in most other communities..
shailene: on a mass level and on an insular, independent, heart -based level, we really need to start recognizing that most often in our world, we remain apathetic and numb to situations until they directly affect us..
shailene: when you are in that space (nature) and connected to all things, i find it pretty difficult for ego to dominate.. i find it pretty simple for innate love, for unconditional love to take over.. that’s all we’re doing really.. we have all these diff labels (soc justice, environ justice..) but it’s just love.. unconditional love that nature provides.. if we’re able to listen..
shailene: i get called an idealist or a ridiculous optimist, but i also sort of feel like the idea/concept of idealism in general is a very adult way of looking at an imaginative, wonder-filled, creative situation.. there’s no right/wrong way to do anything.. we’re all here to learn.. witness.. serve.. love.. that’s the goal..
our *kids have so much ability to recognize where shifts can occur and how they can play, and how they can show up unconditionally with love, **day after day after day, because they don’t have ego developed yet. our elders have developed ego and let go of their egos.. because they’ve seen where it’s gotten them, and where it hasn’t gotten them. in that idealism, we are able, for a second/millisecond.. to remove our egos and just pray.. and allow ourselves as adults/teenagers/youth.. to ***strip away all rules/restrictions.. all things we’ve been told that are black and white and find the gray again.. find the rainbow again, find the colors again, and infuse that into a world that desperately needs some cushion and some relaxation and some reprieve from the b & w nature of right and wrong and rules and laws..
