Bias vs. Opinion

I have heard of an unbiased opinion. But when an opinion is based on biased, where have we learned what we know? How do we know what we know?
What have we learned and taught our children?
Should children form their own opinion?

These are all things that I would like to make a difference one person at at time. It is like a fish in water. The fish does not think twice about the water. It has always been there, and it is taken for granted by the fish. The water is all around it, yet invisible. This is how discrimination maintains itself. I also want to touch a bit on sexism, ageism an classism. These are all alive and well in the U. S of A.

I have experiences them all in some shape or form, and want to raise awareness to the cause of equality, rights to equal opportunity, and just pain playing fair on a level field.

I want to nurture a voice that opens minds, questions assumptions, teaches people to be tolerant and to accept people where they are and who they are. Take a breath before speaking, and walk in another person's shoes before passing judgement on them or their situation.

Acceptance and Trust - Inner wisdom is within your heart.

Accepting that "what will happen is meant to happen", is the first step in a leap of faith. The next step is trusting that the universe will be there to guide you within your journey.

Take things as they come to you.

I have struggled with the two words, "Acceptance and Trust" throughout my journey. It is a conscious effort on my part, to always be aware of my need to control the outcome of any given situation. It seems unnatural for me to not "react" and try to "solve" my problem. However I believe, the answer will appear in its own given time.

Accept and trust that in time, the answer will emerge and guidance will follow. Patience and awareness are also helpful to you, on this well traveled path to awareness.

Inner wisdom is within your heart always.

Fear can be paralyzing, but most of the time the worst does not happen. It is the thought of the worst, the apprehension and unrealistic expectations that hold us back from taking the leap of faith to accomplish our goals. I know for me it is the FEAR of Failure. My new motto is to "Just get over it and do it anyway!"

Discover, Give Voice, Empower and Act

Media Culture and Society Class at St. Catherine University:

First day of class was amazing. I forgot how much I missed the "brain stimulation" as well as all my friends. We were all intertwined within the fabric of the mission, yet we all brought a different perspective and process to the conversation. It was interesting to hear everyone's tribute, and embrace where they were at the moment.

My goal is to discover, give voice, empower and act on what I learn in this class to make a difference in the world, one person at a time.
