I’ve learned that oppression is the opposite of expression and those who oppress live in constant fear.

Oppression is the stifling of man and nature’s creative and exploratory need. Read that again: Oppression is the stifling of a human’s need to explore.

The best way to stop oppression is to live in the opposite way: be the person who recognizes oppression and stands against it; be the person with an open and not a brainwashed mind; be the person who loves expression because expression is why we are here; be the person who sees and recognizes the creative source in all human beings; be the person who honors and loves all beings; be the person who encourages expression and not oppression.

Today is the first day of spring. All nature wants to be expressive. If you can, take a walk outside today and honor the life force that seeks to express itself and bloom every spring. Watch the plants, grasses, and flowers begin their process of becoming. Just like plant life seeks to express itself, we seek and need to “bloom,” too. It is natural and innate. Be a person who helps the world BLOOM, in your own special way.

Wishing you all an expressive and creative first day of the spring equinox.

Express!
