Envision an Earth with communities that are category-less, class-less, and caste-less a world free of judgment, stereotyping, and superiority, a place with safe and brave spaces for all people. Like, Nelson Mandela I believe, “Overcoming poverty is not a task of charity, it is an act of justice. Like Slavery and Apartheid, poverty is not natural. It is human- made, and it can be overcome and eradicated by the actions of human beings. Sometimes it falls on a generation to be great. You can be that generation. Let your greatness blossom.” This philosophy implies that we should look at whether what we are doing will enable or empower the community around us to improve. This form of change becomes accessible when each of us unlocks Ubantu’s indigenous philosophy, where individuals express compassion, reciprocity, dignity, humanity, and mutuality in the interest of building and maintaining communities with justice and commonalities.My practice asks us to change certain habits of mind, telling us that the authority of the social construct is provisional, the original is a trace. Deconstruction is a political practice, an attempt to dismantle the logic by a particular system of thought; behind that, a whole network of political structures and social institutions maintains its force. Consciousness naturally deconstructs, expanding an interconnected paradigm, and ‘little by little it modifies the terrain of our ideology, and resonate a mindful shift.’
