Diversity with Jasmyn Lawson

 

Because I am all of those things.

They’re all a part of me.

A quote on diversity by .Mic editor Jasmyn Lawson, with a GIF featuring teen US actress Amandla Stenberg.

This resonates with me a lot. I’m half-Indo-Mauritian and half-English, and live in the UK’s most diverse city. I’ve grown up with a lot of influences and viewpoints. Post-Brexit, let’s not forget to embrace our diversity. One of the things that makes Britain truly great.

Meditating in the Sacred Cave of Lagoa

 

Thousands of candles can be lighted from a single candle, and the life of the candle will not be shortened. Happiness never decreases by being shared.

Life, death and the Geeta

In the Hindu holy scripture Bhagavad Gita (Geeta),  it is said that reincarnation is an inevitability, and that when someone dies or is born, it is as if they are changing clothes. The body is transitional but the soul is eternal.
