Happy Kwanzaa!

Happy Kwanzaa friends! The holiday season continues. Might we take a moment and ponder some principles as an interconnected collective of Gaian beings regardless of race or heritage?

Unity: To strive for unity amongst [our diverse] families, communities, nations, [genders, sexualities, cultures, ages, languages, faiths,] and races.

Self-Determination: To define ourselves, name ourselves, create for ourselves, and speak for ourselves [for a better world as a collective whole for peace & balanced health].

Collective Work and Responsibility: To build and maintain our [planet’s delicate ecosystems and communities] and make our brothers’ and sisters’ problems our problems, and to solve them together.

Cooperative Economics: To build and maintain our own [local] stores, shops, and other businesses and to profit from them together [as a community that fostures communal cooperation].

Purpose: To make our collective vocation the building and developing of our communities in order to restore our [planet’s ecosystems: airs, waters and lands] to their traditional greatness.

Creativity: To do always as much as we can, in the way we can, in order to leave our community more beautiful and beneficial than we inherited it.

Faith: To believe with all our hearts in our people, our parents, our teachers, our leaders, [our friends, our lovers, our intentions, our foresight, our talents, our honour, our integrity]and the righteousness and victory of our struggle [towards a world that embraces diversity and peace on Earth.]

Namaste my friends…we are the light from all over the world.
