3. The price we pay for awareness
With every level of consciousness or awareness, we are expanding ourselves into a place where we get to experience deeper states of happiness as well as sadness.

It is in experiencing the sadness, that we come to be aware of the happiness when it does come. – Peace with Anxiety

Without knowing the darkness of sadness we would not be able to appreciate the lightness of happiness. – Dr Eric Perry

9. James Baldwin talks about what it feels like to be a black man in America in the middle of the 20th Century
I can’t claim to know or understand much of American history, but seeing the documentary I am Not Your Negro was deeply moving, and Baldwin’s ideas about race and identity are poetic, profound and deeply affecting. This is a film about otherness and being born an outsider, and viewed as threatening based on how one looks. This is a common thing many people can relate to.
