"No one is born hating another person because of the colour of his skin, or his background, or his religion. People must learn to hate, and if they can learn to hate, they can be taught to love, for love comes more naturally to the human heart than its opposite."

—  Nelson Mandela, Long Walk to Freedom (1995)

Religion siphons off our passion, leaving us less energy for living in the world and with each other. Imagine what we could accomplish if we loved ourselves as unquestioningly as we love our fictions.

I missed World Humanist Day. D:

My apologies, followers! I hope you all did something kind for your fellow man yesterday — and today, for that matter. Spotted in the ‘humanism’ tag, I’m fairly sure this is one of the best summaries of humanism, at least as I see it, so I’m going to reblog it here for you all to see:

odysseyoftheheart:

I’m a secular humanist, and I’m going to ramble about my religious ideology. Woot.

We as humans are stuck here on Earth together, so we should make an effort to be kind, fair, and ethical to each other. I know that’s idealistic, but it’s a good goal.

I think we should be civil to each other because it’s the right thing to do, not because of the ordinance of a deity.

Although today is about awareness, we should love, care for, and respect each other every day.

"We have before us the glorious opportunity to inject a new dimension of love into the veins of our civilization."

—  Martin Luther King, Jr. (via venuschild)

I mean this. Honestly.
I love each and every one of my followers, and if I ever learned that one of them did anything to end their life, I don’t know what I would honestly do. Always know that even if you think no one in your life loves you, I love you.
I know it seems like a strange concept, but I really do care. I care about you.
Always know that I am willing to listen.

All of this

I agree, too! I love you guys :’)
