Pink is the new black.



I love pink. I've even dipped parts of my hair pink.



Pink is the new black.



Sweet pink in all its softness reminiscent of an Easter Brunch with a sea of pink toile and gingham dresses chasing after eggs on lime green grass. Edgy raw power pink peeking out among the thorns of a Bougainvillea bush in my courtyard showing off her admire me but don't get too close pink. And who can refuse fleshy creamy pink, sensuously showing off her lusciousness between the folds of the budding rose or on the human body.



Pink is the new black.



And I'm thinking about pink as more than a color. Pink is the invisible energetic color that opens up to love, renewal, happiness, sharing, and caring. Pink is the symbolic color of the heart. I know when you read about the heart chakra green comes up as the color to use. And true. Green is all about nature, grounding, harmony, and peacefulness. But you can't get there without pink.



Pink is the new black.



In meditation the New Age advice you to jump right up to the higher areas of 7th chakra, crown, and 6th chakra, third eye, and focus in spirituality and altruism. They really don't focus in on the lowly 1st chakra, root, and 2nd chakra, sacral. The 1st chakra is all about survival and I would argue finances and how you view money and the 2nd chakra is all about creativity and how you view sexuality...not so spiritual. And that's why I'm not New Age-like. I think it's imperative to sort out the lower chakras of self before entering into the higher chakras. Back to why I think,



Pink is the new black.



Pink is all about self-love, self care, self-enrichment, self-discovery, self-exploration. Lots of self stuff going on that isn't self-centered. It's centered on self. And when you're finally centered on self you can work with others without the mask of ego. Meaning. You can work in true collaboration instead of competition and competition masked as collaboration. When I say,



Pink is the New Black.



I'm referring to the old paradigm of competition. The color black is and what I would love to see more of...the new paradigm of collaboration-and not fake collaboration either. You know the one: "Hey, I'll scratch your back if you scratch mine." That's competition disguised passive aggressively as collaboration. 



And if you want to pack a power punch in the realm of energy pack it with pink. Pink is all about the Law of Attraction. It draws other colors to it. It plays well with the other colors. But scientists argue it doesn't exist without some major natural light bending.



"Pink is actually a combination of red and violet, two colors, which, if you look at a rainbow, are on the opposite sides of the arc. Remember the old colors of the rainbow mnemonic ROYGBIV? The R (red) is as far as it can get from V (violet). That’s where the trouble lies. Pink can’t exist in nature without a little rainbow-bending help, which would allow the shades of red and violet to commingle. This is leading scientists to believe, as Krulwich puts it, that “pink is a made-up color.” Krulwich explains:
I know, of course, that all colors are just waves of light, so every color we “see,” we see with our brains. But what this video says is that there is no such thing as a band of wavelengths that mix red and violet, and therefore, pink is not a real wavelength of light. That’s why pink is an invention. It’s not a name we give to something out there." (Time Magazine, Pink isn’t out there. Does the Color Pink Exist? Scientists Aren’t Sure, March 7, 2012)



As far as I'm concerned this proves just perfectly how magical pink really is. Pink is the red of 1st chakra and the violet of 7th chakra. You want to be with pink. 



Breathe pink and live in the moment of pink. And when you combine 1st and 7th there is no more competition only collaboration.


It is possible that the next Buddha will not take the form of an individual. The next Buddha may take the form of a community, a community practicing lovingkindness, a community practicing mindful living. This may be the most important thing we can do for the survival of the Earth. ~Thitch Nat Han
