"The Sun and Her Daughter" 2013
This is a 10-page silent comic that I finished recently about the Sun and her daughter the Moon. It’s based on a dream I once had.
So I hope you enjoy it, and might consider if a reblog if you do.
The kind of thinking that makes a distinction between thought and feeling is just one of those forms of demagogy that causes lots of trouble for people by making them suspicious of things that they shouldn’t be suspicious or complacent of.
For people to understand themselves in this way seems to be very destructive, and also very culpabilizing. These stereotypes of thought versus feeling, heart versus head, male versus female were invented at a time when people were convinced that the world was going in a certain direction — that is, toward technocracy, rationalization, science, and so on — but they were all invented as a defense against Romantic values."

p.s. Have you entered the heart chakra giveaway?(via thechakraglow)
Symptoms of an overactive heart chakra: being extremely sensitive, jealous, living in the past, feeling like a victim, codependency, poor self-confidence, clinginess, and being easily taken advantage of or manipulated.
People suffering with this have been badly hurt or broken before. They can romanticize everything, even the people that have hurt them, and never fully move on, possibly labeling their sentimentalism and codependency as romantic or poetic.
Small disagreements cut these people deeply, as they view them as a personal attack from someone they love. And when they love someone,… it’s intense. They are unhealthily attached to them, and may believe that they need them to be happy. Without this person, they may get very depressed, and feel cold, alone, and useless. This responsibility can suffocate their partner and make healthy, balanced relationships impossible.
Ways to fix: get fresh air! Be in brisk, cold air. Open all of your windows and doors, air out your home. Wear amethyst as much as you can. Are you still suffering from old pain? How can you let go? Are your relationships healthy, or ultimately harmful or suffocating for the other person? Do you use love to cling to or manipulate people?
FIX YOUR ROOT CHAKRA. Please. Do it. You cannot heal without that feeling of groundedness, security, and sturdiness. I have a bit of a soft spot for these people, because I’ve been in this situation so much. If you need further help, please contact me. I’ll help you.
