In The Face of Adversity and the Aftermath…We Unified…

September 11, 2001…a day that changed America…forever…

A day that tested America…and a day that once again…defined America…

In our losses…we found Strength…Courage… Fortitude…Solace…Unity…Love…

Today we remembered tragedy and the aftermath of trauma that always accompanies such horrific events…

Yet we are also reminded of the resilience of the human spirit…and how we are at our best in the worst of times…How we come together…to heal…and rebuild…and pledge to always have each other’s back…And we always deliver.

In the aftermath of one of America’s greatest tragedies…and in remembrance and allegiance to those many precious and irreplaceable lives lost…let us call upon their courage and strength as they accepted their untimely fates and sacrifices…to face what is happening around us now…

Let us continue to unify in the face of our present adversities…let us become the better of ourselves… a part of our better selves…lost on that fateful day…are watching…and praying for us to remember…that we come from Love…

In the Face of Adversity…and the Aftermath… We Unify…

God does Bless America…through each and every one of us…we are one another’s guiding light…pillar of strength…and examples of love…unconditionally.

Pay homage to this day…

Return to Unity…

Return to Love…

All for One…One for All…

From sea to shining sea….

Unity.

Can We…

Can we …

Cross through this threshold of chaos and madness gripping our nation…and find the courage to mobilize and defeat these harbingers of division and destruction?

Can we …

Rebuild a nation ravaged by Racism, Poverty, Discrimination, Hatred and Political Strife?

Can we …

Find the common thread that binds us as humanity and preserve our planet?

Can we …

Care enough about ourselves for just a moment…to give a damn?

Can we …

Care enough about others…for just a moment…to give a helping hand?

Can we …

Stop entertaining our own delusions and illusions…and countless denials…to stand up and face reality?

Can we …

Accept the fact that our lives will never go back to normal…because that “normal” no longer exists?

Can we …

Comprehend that if we continue to avoid change…there will eventually be no tomorrow?

Can we…

Embrace the realization that we are the creators of what is happening around us?

Can we…

Take the reins of providence and create a country…and a world…that will stand the test of time…and outlive the veil of negativity now cast upon us…by us…

Can we…

Trust in the power of love…which is present within all humanity…and all living entities…to create the miracles that will bring us and our planet back in sync with Creation?

We can no longer afford to “go along to get along…” We must acknowledge our connection to everything and everyone…we must acknowledge that no matter who orchestrates their rise to the top of anything…the risen will fall…if balance is not written into the plan…The Age of Corona is ushering in…Balance…in every shape…form…and fashion.  “Exclusivity” on all levels…will find the balance of “inclusivity” on all levels of life…and living…for everyone…and everything…The “Age of Me” is dying and will soon be no more…The “Age of We…in Unity” has begun…There can be no stopping it…it is out of our hands to defy it.  It is a battle that is already lost…and will only lead to immense casualties…needlessly.  However, “what will be will be” and when the dust settles…Change will emerge the victor….

Can we…

Change?

Yes…we can…Willingly…or by the sheer movement of Change…as we are now witnessing firsthand…through Nature… She is not in man’s control…and never will be…A painful realization to so many…who believe they are in control…their delusions are being dismantled daily…Truth will never be denied its place among us…it may be delayed…disguised…and hidden…but the light of truth will never be diminished by the folly of mankind…it will ALWAYS shine through.

Can we…

Make a difference?

You are unique in that you have a voice…and in using the power of your voice and your experiences…you can change the lives of many…and help others…who can learn and benefit by your experiences…and give them the courage to use their voice…and their experiences to positively influence and create voices of change…around the globe…

Let us continue to emerge from the Dark Ages…Not return…

You…and you…and you…and you…are…the Change…

Can we?

You tell me….

Reflections of The Way Life Used To Be…

Tomorrow is Labor Day here in the States… The last weekend of summer as we know it…

It is usually a signal for school starting up again…one last hoorah at the beaches…one last big barbeque…family and friends gathering to say farewell to Summer…hello to the coming of Fall…and all that it brings…

Reflections of the way life used to be…
We must wake up to the reality of a new way of life…
We must be aware that life will never be as it was again…
We must change with the realities that we now face…
Now…more than ever…we must focus on our future…
We must look beyond the past…into the present…and what it means for our future…

Masks…the new norm…Consideration for one another…Respectful of space…respectful of distance…care for the health and well-being of others…as well as ourselves…


The center of our universe…our personal worlds, have forever changed…the more we try to make it about us…and our comforts…the further we will get from making the changes that will bring in a new life for all of us…
Don’t be afraid to change…The more resistance given…the more forced it will be…

Acceptance and surrender…
We all have the opportunity to make a huge contribution to the betterment of change…
Let us create a far better future than awaits us…if we resist.

Reflections of the way life used to be…let them be…
Be mindful…be safe…create new and exciting chapters in these last days of Summer…

Greet Labor Day with new ideas…New job creations…a new you…
a new life…a better tomorrow….

Reflect on your contributions to a ‘new’ humanity…
A new way of living…
A new way of giving…

Oh Happy Day!
Labor for Love….
Reflections of the life to be…for everyone.

Peace….Courage…Much Love…
Our quest is just beginning…..

A Stark Reminder…Time To Step Up…

I first wrote this post to Facebook on February 21, 2017…It has served to be a continuing prophecy to date. I am reposting it here to remind everyone that we must be vigilant…and we must unify…making the necessary changes to truly make America great and remove the toxic waste from the White House by sending a Blue Tsunami…read on…

”Today is a new day with a very real, realization…life has changed, and will continue to change with each passing day…our lives as we know them to be are in “dismantle mode” by the present regime that has taken over our nation’s capital and seeks to destroy and deprive us of our hard-won freedoms and humanity, while desecrating and negating the Constitution which created a path to the dream of America…It is by no means perfect, and it is in desperate need of an overhaul…but not by a deranged and soulless dilettante who fancies himself a leader, followed by a legion of mindless vessels, all too willing to do his bidding; while nipping at his heels to be favored for a chance to claim fifteen minutes of fame to push forth their own mad agendas in wreaking more chaos and havoc upon our country, and the world.

We must continue moving forward in unity…ever vigilant in keeping America the “land of the free…and the home of the brave.” We must never again cast our pearls before swine…believing that they will handle them with care and value their worth…every individual with a conscience and a heart are one of those pearls being trampled beneath the feet of the swine disrupting democracy while threatening to further pollute and assist the global deterioration of our home and planet…

Our greatness is our ability to be our best at our worst times…isolation is our enemy, and abandonment to those suffering in the world due to man’s inhumanity to man…leads us to abandon ourselves, if we abandon those who are suffering due to ignorance and self-aggrandizement by those among us who care not for the value of life…nor the privilege of choice, in doing the right thing, and championing Truth, then we are no better than they are, because in the end, Truth is our only salvation.

”Lies” are “Lessons In Evil Substantiated.” Let us not continue to substantiate the endless ocean of lies coming from the present Republican administration in support of their “Master of Lies.” Many of them have placed the “power and control” of their Party before the Nation and the People they swore an oath of allegiance to protect and serve…

Seeds of lies and corruption will never bear honest, robust fruit.  Never, ever let anyone convince you that you will survive by partaking of “rotten anything,” as you will surely perish!

Together…from town to town…city to city…state to state…country to country…around the world, continue to stand in solidarity and RESIST…at each and every given opportunity…and create opportunity to proclaim:

You will honor We the People…You will bend to the Will of the People…or You will fall under our sword, as we believe and practice Truth…Freedom…Justice…Liberty…Human Rights…and any individual’s right to “be”…We will take up our armor of Morals…Values…Commandments…Freedom of Speech…and the Constitution of our Nation…and we will wield the Sword stained with the blood and dignity of our Forefathers…our Ancestors…our Veterans…our Mothers…Fathers…Sisters…Brothers…our Children…all Sacrificial Lambs fallen by insurgents, prejudices, discriminations, bigotry…hatred…and we will defeat you! We are the real and true Spirit and Heart of America…who were one-time Immigrants…and Slaves, who built this country…and WE are bent on healing the wounds and ceasing the pain caused by those who were here before us, and those who may come after us…We Will RESIST the tyranny of ANY person, place or thing, because WE are the RESISTANCE. We the People, in all of our diversity, the fabric of America, and we…will not stand for your virulent branding of “45” upon our Chests…Arms…Wrists…Backs…Foreheads…or Minds…Not today…not ever! “Never Again!!!!”

Since this February 21, 2017 posting, our country has endured an administration of doom…and our country is on the brink of chaotic collapse… We the People must unify…or die. Our country and our nation of dreams has called us into battle…Her salvation and future…is in OUR hands.

Time to Step Up…

Dump Trump…

2020…

Time to clean house…

Down with Destroyer Donald Trump (DDT)

Demonic Donald Trump (DDT)

Remember DDT and Agent Orange? Poison…

August 5th Was Her Choice…

She’s gone now…

Every August 5th… I remember…because that was her choice…

She chose a day that represents Freedom…Change…and Adventure…All the things that she embodied.

She lived and exercised her freedom in her thoughts…words…and deeds…respected and fought for her freedom to express and to be true to herself…as she respected and fought for the freedom of others…She was no shrinking violet…she spoke her mind and put forth the truth with eloquence…supported change…and lived her life with adventure! I took it all in…and jumped into my life embracing Freedom…Change…and Adventure!

I am who I am…because of her…

Now…she lives in my heart…and flies through time…and space…a light of brilliance…in the Cosmos…in Divinity…She waits…to make her next choice.

She…was my mother….

I am forever grateful and blessed…

That August 5th…was her choice…

To shine here…on Earth…for 83 years…

Thanks Mom…

Your Love will last…

Forever.

July Says Goodbye…

Here we are again… July says goodbye…another month comes to an end…

We are still battling the corona virus…White House Administrative, Elephantine, pie-in-the-sky illusions…massive unemployment…masses trying to make ends meet…tremendous death tolls on the rise again, because the belief is that not wearing masks and not taking protective measures against the virus will make a difference, due to misinformation, and those who wish to exercise “invincibility” against a virus that has no distinct indication of how it is attacking humans in the first place!  What we do know is covering the face at the most vulnerable points of entry gives the most assurance of keeping this virus at bay, while sanitizing and washing hands is also a viable recourse against it…Your life is at stake…and the lives of others, by you, if you do not follow the safety guidelines until a vaccine is found and made available…

July also saw the death of an American Hero and Giant of Civil Rights, John Lewis, Congressman from Georgia… He said:

“Do not get lost in a sea of despair.  Be hopeful, be optimistic.  Our struggle is not the struggle of a day, a week, a month, or a year, it is the struggle of a lifetime.  Never, ever be afraid to make some noise and get in good trouble.”

Words to live by…words to put into practice…an energizing mantra….

Right here, at July’s end, as is every day, until we conquer our demons and enemies acting against humanity, is a call for action from each and every one of us.  If we truly value life…and one another…we will always answer the call of action…because the call is mobilizing us to stand up against injustice, tyranny and any assaults against doing the right thing… We must always exercise common sense…if one can be reckless without harming another…that’s their right…however, should their recklessness touch the life or lives of others in a harmful manner, this recklessness becomes everyone’s concern…

The only way we can better the world is by bettering ourselves…The only way we can change the world…is to change ourselves…We can alter the surge of the virus and put it in decline…by following the guidelines to do so…We can bring about justice in the world, by being a voice and activist against injustice…Just as John Lewis spent his entire life doing…and he ushered in and brought about change…crucial change in the fight for Civil Rights…Equality is not a privilege…but a human right! July says goodbye…I say make it your beginning…

We must all change the rhythm of the world…We must sing a more righteous and heartfelt song by changing the words and the melody to reflect the times…We cannot continue to live and function in a “dead” past.  We must choose life and advancement…

As July says goodbye, let August say “Hello, this month will make a difference, because, I will make that difference…”

You can…You will…You must…nothing will change, if you don’t.  You are the difference…Only you can change the course of this Pandemic…Injustice…Humanity…

Common sense…

Compassion…

Conquer and elevate the world to a better tomorrow…

Tomorrow is August…

A new month…a new beginning to make that change…

Goodbye…July….


 

 

 

Nature Walks…

There is a beautiful natural park nearby, where I go to spend some time in nature…I walk through the forest where there are trails to walk and enjoy the scenery…

 

CA3162EE-E90C-4AB1-8C20-D66F2218D747DA6EED72-4BA5-4210-B13E-0C59DF04DEE1 It is a great place to meditate…to ponder…or just be…

Then…I saw other things that were out of place…and did not belong…

CFD06647-73E4-44A6-A787-CD6F2C52529D   This should not be the way to “reward” nature for its beauty…Keeping our environment free of litter is a small price to pay to enjoy it…Our planet is not our dumping ground or trash bin…When we take our dogs out for walks…the bags should be placed in a bin…not left on the ground…and water can be used on the spot to wash it down before it dries unsightly, and stains…

If we cannot respect and take care of our planet and environment…how can we take care of one another?

Our planet and environments are alive with life…supporting life…just as we are being supported and given homes…food…the air that we breathe…

Wouldn’t it be devastating and life threatening if our planet decided it no longer wanted to support human life? Makes one wonder….

Please…think twice about that cup…wrapper…cigarette carton…disposable mask …gloves…dog waste…do the right thing…use a trash bin…don’t destroy our natural landscapes and forests…streams and rivers…lakes and oceans…nature walks… with litter and waste.

Love extends itself to our planet…Please…Take care of Her….

The beauty of Nature is a gift…

Show that we can be thankful…

Imagine what the world would be…

Without a walk in Nature….

 

 

 

 

Random Acts of Kindness…

Random acts of kindness are surfacing in the midst of our troubling, worldly woes…It is beautiful…and it is what being human is all about…

When you witness it…or become a recipient of it…it is awesome, indeed! It doesn’t matter how large or how small the kindness…kindness isn’t measured in quantity…it’s measured in heart…

Today I was running an errand, and it took me through a toll booth…as the car ahead of me moved away…I moved forward to the cashier to pay my toll…He said, “You’re free to go.  The car ahead of you paid your toll!”  Wow!  I was floored…goodness was still making its rounds through the hearts of loving, selfless, thoughtful people… 

I wanted to somehow thank that wonderful giver-of passage-through-the toll-person…The stop light at the top of the exit assisted in my wish…it turned red.  I was right behind them, and I waved and said “Thank you” hoping they would see me in their rear view mirror…They did…and waved back.  My day was made…

After telling my story later that day, I was told of another story of a woman in a neighborhood market, who had bought a week’s worth of groceries, and only had $50.00 on her card to pay for it, and her card was rejected…the person behind her in line, stepped up and paid the entire bill! We all know the price of a week’s worth of groceries…$50.00 does not take care of it…

Random Acts of Kindness…

The world in all of its present misery, restriction and chaos is evolving to another level…a level of realization that is turning on the lights in hearts everywhere…shining brightly to reveal that we are all in this together…and we can all get through this together…by being there for one another… As it should be…always…

Random Acts of Kindness are blessings we can always give…and receive…with compassion and love…It is our reason to be…it is the way of love….

We must strive to always keep our hearts open…

Random Acts of Kindness are a part of our love contribution to humanity…

Indulge in kindness frequently…make someone’s day with your offering of love…

Random Acts of Kindness…elevate our consciousness to a supreme level of giving…because we give unconditionally…without thought…and without reservation…

Our Random Acts of Kindness, blesses the recipient…and it blesses our hearts and spirits…

Our Random Acts of Kindness reverberates through the Cosmos…It touches every molecule of Creation…

Partake…Make it a part of your daily routine…A smile…a word of encouragement…opening the door for someone…Random Acts of Kindness…

It doesn’t cost a thing…to be kind….

Remember…it’s not the quantity…it’s the quality…the selflessness of giving.

Whatever you choose to give in kindness…do it with love.

Random Acts of Kindness…

A return to Love…in the Age of Corona…

Accident or Nature’s test of Humanity?

Random Acts of Kindness…

Our Blessings…Our Miracles…

Our return to Love….

Seriously?!

Seriously?!

What has to happen to get people to take Covid-19  seriously?! I went shopping at Walmart today, and before going inside, I saw a man without a mask, and a random woman walked up to him, without a mask, and started asking him questions… After asking her questions, she thanked him, and walked towards the entrance…Maybe they were exchanging the virus, instead of information…

Once inside, everyone within view had on masks, and some, like myself, also wore gloves… Then it happened! I started seeing people without masks! I wondered how they got inside the store, because right on the entrance, it is posted that masks are mandatory to enter the store! They also have someone monitoring at the door, to make sure a mask is on your face before entering the store…

Seriously?!

Are they entering the store from the Gardening department or some other unmanned entrance? Or are they being “clever” and removing their face coverings after they enter the store?

Can this be another reason for the unexplained spikes of the virus?

My niece and I had a conversation today about people not taking this pandemic seriously…She is 20 years, and she said that the young people in California aren’t taking this seriously… She is practicing social distancing…wearing gloves… wearing masks…sometimes two masks she said…she’s on hold from working…she’s concerned and worried that people’s lives are hanging in the balance because everyone should care for themselves…and others.

Seriously…everyone must cooperate with due diligence if we are going to emerge from this with a chance at being able to enjoy our tactile ways of living again…virus-free means mask-free…and that will come about when a vaccine is tested and deemed safe and available to the public…which is in the works… until then, we must practice the protocols required to protect us from this deadly illness…

To those who are doing your part and being mindful of others as well as yourself, you are to be commended, once again…

Please, please…think about those who are doing the right thing by you, as well as themselves…in wearing masks…gloves…and social distancing…

Seriously…our lives are in one another’s hands…literally.

We have all been charged to be our brothers and sisters keepers…
We have been called unanimously to serve one another in kindness and compassion…The ending of this pandemic depends upon everyone doing their part to be a better version of themselves…by doing the right thing…by being selfless in thinking of others…while protecting yourselves…

Seriously…can we make the grade?

What do you think?

We will see…

Seriously!!!
