What is Pantheism?
Pantheism can be described as the belief that all things pertaining to Nature is the source of divinity or God. The universe itself is seen as the essence of divinity we call God. A source that pervades all the universe and all of existence.

We see the world piece by piece, as the sun, the moon, the animal, the tree; but the whole, of which these are the shining parts, is the soul. -Emerson
Nipsey Hussle Mural
Los Angeles, Ca
Nipsey Hussle was an American rapper and entrepreneur from Los Angeles, California. Hussle was known for his dedication to his community and being an activist against gang violence. He served as source of inspiration for young black men and sought to help them rise above gang culture. After Hussle’s tragic death in March of 2019, artist Levi Ponce helped pay tribute to his legacy through the creation of the Hussle Mural in Los Angeles, California.
I say its worth it, I won’t say its fair. Find your purpose or you wastin’ air.
