"A short book, but a powerful one, that many of you would read in one day. Even I, as the slowest of readers, could finish it in three. Don't expect the thrill of beautiful, uplifting sentences here; the language is plain. Like the Congregationalis..." Read more of this review »

Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie
“The only reason you say that race was not an issue is because you wish it was not. We all wish it was not. But it’s a lie. I came from a country where race was not an issue; I did not think of myself as black and I only became black when I came to America. When you are black in America and you fall in love with a white person, race doesn’t matter when you’re alone together because it’s just you and your love. But the minute you step outside, race matters. But we don’t talk about it. We don’t even tell our white partners the small things that piss us off and the things we wish they understood better, because we’re worried they will say we’re overreacting, or we’re being too sensitive. And we don’t want them to say, Look how far we’ve come, just forty years ago it would have been illegal for us to even be a couple blah blah blah, because you know what we’re thinking when they say that? We’re thinking why the fuck should it ever have been illegal anyway? But we don’t say any of this stuff. We let it pile up inside our heads and when we come to nice liberal dinners like this, we say that race doesn’t matter because that’s what we’re supposed to say, to keep our nice liberal friends comfortable. It’s true. I speak from experience.”
Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, Americanah

“as architect of choosing...
choose. to. live.
awakened. entirely. wholly.

wildly powerful, 
deeply masterful, 
authentically creative,
this is not a hoped-for possible self.
[reminder: this is an immutable Law of your being]

needing not to learn the skill of being whole, 
the antidote is to unlearn the habit of living incompletely

here’s the practice:

‘know thyself‘—its about spirit 
righteousness is underrated
elevate connection with the changeless essence
seek similitude with the will of Source and will of self

'choose thyself'—its about substance
sacred. sagacious. spacious.
in thought, word and deed—
intend to: honor virtue. innovate enthusiastically. master integrity.

'become who you are'—its about style 
a human, being an entrepreneur of life experiences
a human, being a purveyor of preferences
being-well with the known experience of soul, in service

your relationship with insecurities, contradictions, & failures?
obstacles or...invitations to grow?
[mindset forms manifestation]
emotions are messengers are gifts
data for discernment: dare to deconstruct them your fears

a belief renovation: fear.less.
& aspire towards ascendance, anyway
support your shine
lean into the Light



as architect of choosing, I choose... 
to disrupt the energy of the status quo,
to eclipse the realms of ordinary,
& to live--a life-well lived.
w/ spirit, substance & style.”
LaShaun Middlebrooks Collier

“I remember the days of my youth when everything was new and bright; when the mind was always questing, searching, absorbing; when the pain of love was so acute it could suffocate. And the days when joy was delirious.”
Jennifer Worth, Farewell to the East End: The Last Days of the East End Midwives

“Life turns on little things. The momentous events in history can leave us untouched, while small events may shape our destinies.”
