I wanted to know what it felt like to find my center, my peace, in the midst of chaos. So I wandered into the very center of New York City’s Times Square, where a crowd of people were nose to nose and moving at the pace of distraction and sensory overload. I sat down. And began to meditate. Eventually I was alone, in a large, empty space. People just cleared away. Eventually, a crowd of had formed from the direction of the video camera, which was filming my little test with myself and Spirit. The woman in the far right of this frame is running into the space to get her photo taken behind me. Some people stared, some people giggled, some people asked, “Are you praying? What are you doing?” And I only know this from watching the film. Because I did it. I found my peace. I was safe, and I was unaffected by what was happening around me. It is achievable, at all times, anywhere. It penetrates all things and it cannot be removed from your soul. It is beckoning you always. Thank you for letting me share this image with you. It was a transformational moment in my life, letting go of all inhibitions, fears of what would happen to me, or of being ridiculed… it just didn’t matter. All that mattered was the peace and love I felt. And somehow, souls recognize souls that order peace. Even if they don’t understand or remember it for what it is. One Love to you…. Ana.
This is beautiful. I will try this someday <3

This is why you cant trust women, even when theyre mouth is closed theyre still lying to you
you do realize that this is really hurtful right?
i did not do this to show how i am ‘lying’ to men or anyone, it’s not about how you, as a man, should feel about it - it’s about myself.
to me your statement sounds as if the left side of this picture is something awful or horrible. and no, it’s not. it is my face - with and without makeup. and whether i chose to wear it or not is MY AND JUST MY decision. and when i do, i do it for myself - so that i feel good about myself - not for you.

The Clash helps some of their fans to sneak in before a concert.
this is how you do music right.
I love this so much. Like how stoked would you be if a band you loved helped you sneak into a big show of theirs?
I’ve heard this story before and love that they did this. Stop me if you heard this other one:
The Ramones were playing in England and before the show they were hanging out in the dressing room when someone tossed a stone at the window. They looked out to see some young punks who wanted to get into the show but didn’t have money for tickets. The Ramones reached down and pulled the guys up and got them in. Those young punks without tickets were to become The Clash.
Good to hear they kept it going.
Reblogging for awesome bands with awesome stories.
Real punks helping punks.
My heart is officially warmed.
