Anonymous asked: You say that our culture is wrong about telling women to remove facial hair/arm/leg hair. However, from your picture I can see that you do your eyebrows and remove facial hair. You are not practicing what you preach and it's hard for people like me to be inspired or moved by someone whom fails to do so. Just a thought i had while reading your blog (p.s amazing poetry ).
hi my love. I am so sorry you feel this way. i am sorry i can’t be of inspiration to you. i try to do my best to be of service to the world. i am a servant of this universe after all. but i too, am not perfect, and cannot please everyone. i think we got a few things mixed up in the messaging.
i never said our culture was wrong. i said our society was wrong for demoralizing women who decide to keep their hair. why? because each woman has the right to do what she wants. so a group of people attacking a woman for not removing her hair, is just as bad as a group of people attacking her for keeping it. and sweet sister, no one can judge my journey with my hair from my picture. it is deeper than that. looking back at what i said yesterday word for word:
removing all hair off your body
is okay if that’s what YOU want to do
just as much as
keeping all hair on your body is okay
if that’s what YOU want to do
I do get my eyebrows done. when i feel like doing them. and sometimes i go through long periods and months where i leave them untouched. i will wear shorts with my legs completely unshaven at times. i have been growing the hair on my head for the past 2 years. i have a right to do what i please with my body. but i do not have a right to harass others for doing what they want.
it is my duty as a human being to love, love, and only love. it’s my duty to live judgement free. that’s the message i’m trying to promote. your body is yours. do what YOU want with it. don’t change for others. accept all. and mostly, learn to accept what comes naturally to you. i do what makes me feel safe and happy and loved. I’m promoting CHOICE. The hair shouldn’t offend anyone, nor should it be seen as unfeminine. Other women’s bodies are not our battlegrounds. When women are looked at, i want them to be seen as independent, with the right to do what they please. Let’s not toss animosity on each other. We need to see each other as empresses and treat each other as such.
Peace be upon you my love. I send all my grace. all my goodness. all my sugar. and all my strength. Thank you for sending me love for my poetry xo
and to everyone reading, I want you to give yourself a big hug, look in the mirror, and tell yourself you are beautiful, and daring, and stunning. we are all so magnificent. and what we need is a sisterhood, where women help each other belong to themselves
california, we meet again .
here i am. on a flight back to home. california. cal-i-for-nia. it’s finally sinking in. it’s unbelievable that i’m actually going again. and always at the right time. i will never forget my last trip to cali. i got to perform on a stage for the first time in the u.s. there at my first giddha competition will some of my closest friends. i traveled on my own from san jose to la ~ which by far was the most incredible experience and really revoked my faith in humanity by meeting the most sincerely genuine people on my travels helping me reach my destination. and i found love again when i thought i could no longer feel. i got the pleasure to strengthen my bond w one of my best friends. prior to my trip, i was anxiously preparing for something i didn’t know would change my life completely. i only went to california once before at the age of 5, and for some reason, it left an impact on me that always pulled me to go back. i was only hoping that this trip would meet half of my expectations, but it was beyond that. it exceeded everything i ever dreamed of. los angeles, california. the city of angels. i fell in love again. it was so pure. it was raw. organic. everything. since i was little, this was the only place my heart ever knew. and it was nostalgic to be reunited again. i only hope to now call this place my home when we meet again. ive been going through a whirlwind of emotions this past year, and this is my only remedy. to be here for my own project is actually the dream of little kiran. and to be joined by my sisters whom i can’t wait to share this journey, it’s going to be INCREDIBLE. and though in the grand scheme of things, this may be a baby step, it’s the step im taking to change my entire universe.
california,i can’t wait to see you again.
ps. you’ll always be my cali partner 🌻
