Magic Show more
Magic is nothing more than the conscious use of invisible forces (such as love, patience, courage, and imagination) to create a desired change in the visible world. Every social movement, every scientific discovery, every advancement that humanity has made, has been the result of magic.
May we all become powerful magicians! Call upon those invisible forces, nurture them within yourselves, and put them to use, for the benefit of all existence.
Magic is real, and we it now more than ever.

a friend of mine who spends a LOT of his time picking up plastic waste from parks, rivers, streets, etc. had a good idea. He decided to photograph the non biodegradable waste and tag companies on social media with it. So if he finds a plastic Subway cup, he tells Subway about it with the message "is this yours?" I dig this because it's not something that blames the consumer. It puts the blame where it belongs: on the producer.

'...The American Psychological Association (APA) officially labeled “traditional masculinity” as “harmful” in a new report.
The label is in the report titled “Guidelines for the Psychological Practice with Boys and Men,” a first of its kind for the association, which was featured in the January issue of “Monitor on Psychology” magazine.
