Toni Cade Bambara is an activist and writer from the 1900s. I appreciate her words about wholeness (from “The Salt Eaters”).
Because wholeness is to be welcomed, sought, aspired to, surrendered to. And in the end, it changes everything. I picked up the quote from Layla Saad’s Me and White Supremacy.
“Are you sure, sweetheart, that you want to be well?… Just so’s you’re sure, sweetheart, and ready to be healed, cause wholeness is no trifling matter. A lot of weight when you’re well. “
