Paving The Road To The Future…

What we’ve done…Where we’ve been…Where we go from there…will determine the road America paves to the future…

Everyday in America, events of significance take place that will shape the destiny of that road. There are going to be many choices on what materials will be used to build this road…and what we choose to support in policy…to make a road that is a lasting infrastructure into the future.

What takes place in our country on a daily basis isn’t always pleasant or positive…However, it must be addressed because these episodes do affect the lives of every citizen in some shape, form or fashion…Most people will disagree because they believe that they are living in their own carved out corner of the universe, functioning in their own piece of the country within the lives they have created for themselves, and what they say, do and decide is what goes because they are in their own space….

If they remained in their own universe…in their own piece of the country which houses their city or town, inside their own abode, without any human contact outside their dwelling…they still would not be the island that they think isolates them from affecting others with their actions, words and deeds. So, it is important that we are mindful of everything going on around us that can and will affect the growth or demise of our nation…

It is important to know the current events which are going on around us and affecting lives everyday…in America, as well as the world. It is our duty to ensure that the roads we pave are better than the last…and that they are built solidly to lead to better destinations than the roads that have thus been paved, becoming America’s road map to History…

Those roads appear to be leading back to some dark and horrific events in America’s past, and we all have the pen and pencils to construct sound and unfettered blueprints for roadways that will replace the weak and unstable roads that are still being used to plod a way into the future…

We have the opportunities to choose how our country will move forward and what role it will play in influencing the world to become the better vision in embracing and uplifting humanity…by observing, reflecting and acting upon the negatives taking place in our own country…with the complete understanding that there are no “untouchables” in humankind…every action affects innocence somewhere…not only those who are innocent in nature…but those who become victims through unsavory thoughts, words and deeds…from war to gender inequality…and every act of inhumanity being committed around the globe…

In a small way what is written on this blog is written to “ignite your light within” to stir your power without…to be a part of the solution…by becoming aware…and becoming better…in your life…and your purpose…

What the world is…is because of its inhabitants…What America is…is because of its inhabitants…taking part…or not taking part in what it now has become…whatever your view…participation…non-participation…opinions…or no opinions…you are shaping America and the world….

If we want a future…we must pave better…stronger…positive and lasting roads, paying heed to their foundations and infrastructures…and who we allow to build them…

It is time to take up your pencils and pens…your voices…your positive instruments of change which you carry within the heart of you…and make your contribution(s) of betterment to a country and a world calling out to “architects” to pave roads to an ailing humanity and planet…it’s never too late to use your light…to create a future….

Every contribution which uplifts…is a brick in the road…

A simple smile has been known to build roads to joy…

A wonderful beginning….

Pave the road.

The Face of Racism…Mitch McConnell…

The power Racism continues to fuel the fires of division and inequality…

The nation heard it from the Face of Racism a few days ago…Mitch McConnell.

“The concern is misplaced because if you look at the statistics, African American voters are voting in just as high a percentage as Americans.

There it is…

Spoken and broken down like a true Racist.

McConnell has slipped and spoken his true colors on numerous occasions. Most notably through President Obama’s two terms as President of the United States…Along with other members of the Senate and around Capitol Hill who felt the ease of expressing disrespectful and racist sentiments…

He also spoke his true mind during the Trump folly…ever present…with puppy dog loyalty.

When racism presides in the cradle of democracy…there is no democracy.

“Americans” like Mitch McConnell, following his racial and separatist beliefs, continue to perpetuate and feed the lies of the Trump stained presidential farce, while sowing the seeds of division and racial inequality…which will only result in the great fall of America

The Face of Racism has no place in politics and is a cancerous surge on any hope of having an America which will honor claims of “Home of the Brave,” and “Land of the Free.” 

The Face of Racism has no place in America at all…Yet so many welcome it with ease and vigor…fully embracing its hatred…destruction…and imminent obliterating of a nation forever blindly captioned as “great.”

Greatness cannot emerge in a hotbed of Racism and Hatred…which is presently…and has been from its inception, The Face of America.

The world sees America for what she has been made to be…and is…A young country still struggling to define and find its true identity…fractured and confused…pushing democracy to other countries…while democracy is wasted and ignored in its own…

“Home of the Brave?”

Isn’t it really cowardice we are witnessing?

One can continue to lift citizens of America with spirits of dreamy optimism…while the Face of Racism continues to scourge the land and divide these “United States”…or choose the path to scourge Racism…and stand up for Democracy by dissolving these divisive forces already entrenched in those operating on the Hill.

Manchin and Sinema believe they are principled and saving democracy…by aiding to destroy it…soon they will not need to defend their stances…coming events and history will prove them wrong.

Lady Liberty is crying out for leadership with integrity…sadly, her call will never be answered…due to Cowardice

The good and positive accomplishments made in this country are constantly overshadowed and at risk of being overturned and eliminated by the evil, archaic and selfish intentions of the “privileged” Americans threatened by anything and anyone they perceive as a danger to their “protected” way of life…Racism guarantees that “privilege and protection.”

That is when the “Americans” that Mitch McConnell recognizes, becomes an important part of his constituency to keep his style of politics and beliefs viable, by seducing their weaknesses and human condition to secure their votes, where his “ideologies” are kept in tack and functioning full rudder, until his demise…

Dead men tell no tales…they do that while they are alive, and positioned in life…Lying and lies are their lifeline…their social standard and their insurance to always make sure that the truth is never seen or recognized as the Truth…

Every day that we “wake up” from a night’s sleep, does not always wake us up to what is happening around us…How long are we going to stay “asleep?”

Weakness…Cowardice…Sheep being led to slaughter are a matter of choice for Americans of all avenues of diversity…

The greatness of a nation is not the nation…a nation does not exist without people to sustain it…Greatness lives within the hearts of every human being living on this planet.

If they can awaken to and support the liberties and freedoms which ensure unity and community of all humanity…there will be an opportunity for survival of the human race…and successive generations.  The secret is where one will place their greatness…Hatred…or Humanity?  The hope of the future is locked away in the functioning soul of humankind.

To those who insist upon using billions of dollars going into Space?

Those dollars can be put to better use by improving the human condition and the planet upon which you are now inhabiting…you few are in a very unique position to change lives and environments for the betterment and salvation of the people of this world… and this planet.

Leaving unfinished business here while trying to make discoveries to live out in Space, leaves those future planets in grave danger of becoming divided and destroyed as is what’s happening here and now…on every habitable continent…

And as long as The Face of Racism is America’s “Poster Boy,” the rest of the world will watch and take up safeguards to keep to keep America and her display of “democracy” at arm’s length…

No one will survive a “pandemic” of Racism.

The Face of Racism will fall…

Mitch McConnell…

God will not be mocked…

Nor will those who have awakened…

To the Truth….

Louie…Louie…

I always thought that our paths would cross again before this day arrived….

I always think about our phone conversations whenever you called into the office to speak with your agent…to which I was the assistant…I would always hear water dripping…and every time I asked you if that was water dripping you would say, “Yes, I’m taking a bath.” I would laugh and say, “Louie, every time we speak, I always hear water dripping!” You’d laugh and say, “That’s because I’m always taking a bath!”

When you asked me to be your personal assistant, I was ready…unfortunately, the salary you could offer at the time, was less than I was making as an agent’s assistant. You said, “I can’t offer you any more right, now…but your travel and accommodations will be paid for!” I so wanted that position…but I was already living paycheck to paycheck and I could barely make my bills on the $1200 a month I was making…believe me, I stayed up nights thinking how I could survive on $400 less a month…I knew it would be a constant state of happy working with you…but “bill reality” was pressing on my sense of responsibility…Damn it!!!!! I knew I would have to pass….1986 was a tough year financially….

Years later, I was in Las Vegas and noticed you were headlining a show there…I wanted to drop in and see the show, and say hello…maybe another time…life and decisions, again…

I watched from afar and supported your career…rejoiced over your accolades…and felt saddened by your trials…you were a kind and beautiful soul…and your vulnerabilities were your strengths…and also your Achilles heel….

I had contemplated being on “Funny You Should Ask” just to reminisce with you on television. I knew it would be another comic coup for you…especially “bath time!” Then Covid-19 came in and shut things down in 2020… Life just keeps on happening, after all…

Today…you left for a better comedy show….

I will miss you…and I’ll always love you….

God is in for another round of endless laughs…

Rest in Love, my beautiful, loving, brother and friend…

You touched me…

Louie Anderson is now in lights…eternally.

We Dream the Dream…Let’s Make it Happen…For Everyone….

Today is the celebration of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr’s birthday…

I want to reflect on an article I was sent back in 1999, when putting together a list of charities to benefit from a concert that was being prepared to move into the 21st Century…This was one of the charities…Oxfam America…

“Many believe blacks must participate in the structure of American capitalism in order to prosper as individuals and communities.  Ownership, the bedrock of American society and measure of success, makes citizens free to master their own destinies.  Ownership brings leverage in American economic life and, subsequently, social and political spheres.  Lack of ownership, many believe, has kept blacks and minorities in an inferior social position in which financial resources are squandered to maintain the success of already powerful whites.”

–Laura K. Warrell, Oxfam America Viewpoint, spring 1999, Cover Story, “Does Restitution for Black Farmers Equal Justice”

Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. believed and spoke upon equality for Black Americans economically, as a key factor in achieving racial equality, and spoke upon it in many of his speeches on the long road to establishing Civil Rights for Americans of African ancestry…decades before organizations like Oxfam took up the journey to solidify processes and progress in this still long, long road to racial equality…

Where are we in education…housing…jobs…equal pay…civil rights…freedom…the American Dream…Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s Dream?

When you look at America today…do you see progress or a train running backwards down a hill… headed for certain destruction? Do you see hope for a brighter future? Or positive changes unraveling and being taken apart…taking a country back to savage beginnings it takes pride in clinging to?

How can we…honor the best of ourselves…by implementing that best into the fabric of a nation torn and tattered by division and despair? How can we ensure the promise of America, when days like today come…and remind us what living and living in America…and the world, is really all about?

Take today and remember…take today and what it really means to dream a dream of peace…unity…humanhood…community…liberty…freedom…and make it your reality to create a world that can continue to achieve and sustain the better part of humanity’s contributions in ensuring a future for generations…

I have a dream…

That we will wake up…create the dream…and live it….

The Needs of the Many Outweigh the Wants of the Few…

Bravo to Martina Navratilova! She told Australian television that Novak Djokovic needed to “suck it up” and return home. She went on to say, “The bottom line is, sometimes your personal beliefs have to be trumped by what’s good for the greater good, for those around you, for your peers.” You have two choices, get vaccinated or just don’t go play.”

Absolutely! He would be supporting his personal beliefs by just going home. Yet, he insists on infringing upon the rights of the Australian government to protect their country against a ravaging surge of Covid-19, by allowing him in, against their protocols. Djokovic has been infected with Covid-19, and is a potential carrier, who is against getting vaccinated….Truly his right…but not his right to force accepting him into the country because of his number one status in the Tennis world. His ego cannot protect others he may likely infect if he is allowed to stay and play… Being responsible is what gains respect and admiration…not playing games where you will come into contact with others, and possible cause unnecessary illness…and possibly death. No win…or award…or title, is above human life…Djokovic should know this…respect the Australian government, their citizens…and himself, and make a choice.

He has apparently, and expect others to go against their beliefs…for him.

Clay feet and small minds do not make heroes…

Go home, Djokovic…

The needs of the many outweigh the “wants” of the few…

Stirring up the few, in support of your belief is lead by emotions…not by logic.

“That is wise. In any case, were I to invoke logic, logic clearly dictates the needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few.” -Spock, in Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan

Continuing to cave in and abandon what is right by catering to the needs of the few… with selfish intent…will continue to ensure that the future of the next generations will come to a close at this century’s end…maybe sooner.

Stand your ground, Australia…

Maybe it will rub off on your cousin…America….

Being Reborn…is Being Focused…Silent…and Appreciating…Time Alone…

Maybe it’s time to stop reflecting on the negative of the pandemic and appreciate the positives…

To truly be the best of oneself…one must recognize gifts when they are given…

Being reborn is to be focused…to be focused…is to be silent…

To process your life and and the world of lives around you…you need Time Alone…

On this journey to fix the world…we must fix ourselves…Time has been given to all…to do just that.

Bitching and moaning and feeling deprived of “Normal” is not the answer to salvation of what needs to be saved…This pandemic has and is giving everyone time to be reborn…focused…quiet…and renewed…to rebuild you back…better!

Notice how many refuse to surrender and receive this gift. Slow down and stop for a moment to really observe…Resistance is increasing chaos…confusion…depression and delusion….

Eleven days into the New Year is still enough time to understand that this year will be a result of how we manage the gifts we have…and the gifts we’ve been given…and…how we use them.

Use this “Time Alone” mantra…remember it…recite it for the next 354 days…bring the change…by becoming the change…for the better of you…and the better of a world renewed…

Time Alone

Gives me a reason to be

Time Alone…

Lets me be me

Time Alone…

Releases all my fears

Time Alone…

Brings frustrated, cleansing tears

Time Alone…

Opens up my heart

Time Alone…

Offers a brand new start

Time Alone…

Brings forth the Light

Time Alone…

Reveals deeper insight

Time Alone…

Is a special space

Time Alone…

Is my saving grace

Time Alone…

Allows me to enter That Place

And touch…

The Face of God.

To be Reborn…Become Focused…Become Silent…Accept Time Alone…and Become The Change…that manifests the Better…In you…and the world….

Receive the gift….

January 6, 2021…The Day Democracy Died…With “Greatness”…

There are always comments made about America being the “Greatest country in the world.” What is this country great for?

On January 6, 2021…came an answer.

Great is defined as “Of an extent, amount, or intensity considerably above the normal or average.”

On January 6, 2021…The Capitol of our country was stormed and desecrated…with a chilling display of “great.”

The level of violence, destruction, and disregard of life and country…was of an extent, amount and intensity, considerably above the normal or average… defiling… with complete disregard for our democracy.

Freedom of Speech is one thing….acting upon misinformation that creates insurrection and complete disrespect to a system–although imperfect–that had kept America in check…was treasonous…a death blow to Democracy…Where does that leave America?

The division between the parties…and the continuing battles to wrestle power to one side of the aisle over the other…and the continued engagement and promoting of the “Big Lie” by the “elephant clan” has destroyed Democracy…Just as Covid-19 is cleaning house against the world population…factions that took oaths to protect our country against its enemies…haven’t yet realized that they are the enemies…and they are cleaning house on the American population….with some help and assistance…from a great part of the American population!

“Unity” is nothing more than a five lettered word…without substance or meaning. Certain people are still entrenched in the “Me-Me-Me” club…and they are still in operation on The Hill….

Meanwhile…our country is going down for the third time in a grand state of confusion…from Covid-19, to party politics…the saddest part…the whole world is watching…real “greatness.”

January 6, 2021…The Day Democracy Died…with “Greatness.”

January 6, 2022…take a moment to recollect…and decide…Can we rise from the ashes?

Let the people decide…

How much do you love your country… Do you love it enough to support and give meaning to…and back “Unity?” Having and defending your rights…does not mean doing, supporting and engaging in wrong.

Revive Democracy by cleaning house on The Hill… Don’t fall victim to “Red or Blue…” Have ears to hear and eyes to see….

Guard…protect and defend…your voice…

Once you let them gain control of your voice…you will be silenced…

Your Vote…is your Voice…

Take heed…they have already initiated the Process of Silence

“We are just an advanced breed of monkeys on a minor planet of a very average star. But we can understand the universe. That makes us something very special.” –Stephen Hawking

The universe…right here…right now…is America… A minor country…in an average world.

Choose to be something very special…

Look into the hearts of those you choose…that will reveal the Truth…

The truth of them…

And the truth… of you….

2022…A “Six” Year…A Year of Balance….

We are now in a six year…2022…sum totaled 2+0+2+2=6.  According to Numerology, numbers have spiritual and symbolic meanings… The number six gives us kindness and stability…Six is also a “family” number..a number of “connections.” 2022 is comprised of three twos…it is the number of “balance and the peacekeeper.”

2022 can be a unifying year…bringing family closeness and connectivity…not only for biological families…but for the human family as well.  Also remember that goes for those you have close, “family” relationships and bonds on all levels as your chosen and extended families…partnerships…and unions.  Marriages will take place…and thrive in 2022…some will end…this is a year of “balancing.”

Hope will prevail…challenges will meet balance…2022 gives us the energy to truly become the best of ourselves…

2022 genuinely gives us the chance to succeed and create balance…peace…connectivity…community building…partnerships…idealistic pursuits with hope and realization….along with the “phoenix effect” of rising from the ashes and rebuilding our lives with stability…not as “me” but “we.” Balance is not achieved with one…it begins with two…and expands in connectivity of “like” minds and spirits…which also creates the equation of “better” as in “two minds are better than one.”

2022…a “perfect” number…God created the world in six days…God created humans on the sixth day…We are in a six year…a year of “creation.”

What will you create?

You now have 362 days to create “better” in balance…

In yourself….your communities…and the world.

Rise… Phoenix!!!

Resting On Laurels Is Not An Option…

As we step into our second day of 2022 know this: If we rest on our laurels, we’ll never continue forward in creating the world we want to reflect the good we give or the best of ourselves… Without our continued best and forward momentum our world will continue to be a “mixed bag of tricks.”

Continue to build on your best…if you must rest…pass the baton to those who you can count on to better your best…you’ve supplied the stability that they can continue to expand upon and carry to the next level of triumph…and if they need to rest, they can pass the brick and mortar to the next builder…

Life is an endless journey of experience and growth…lessons and accomplishments to give lift to the wings of humanity. Don’t neglect your gifts…use them to create a better world…after all…you are an essential part of this stairway that leads to a future for those we will eventually leave behind as caretakers…

Every day of 2022 will lead to a significant achievement…if we are vigilant…and our hearts are truly in the right place…

The only promise or resolution that you cannot break…is to be true to yourself and your dreams…without infringing upon the lives and dreams of others…making sure that your best…builds a bridge that all can cross with humility…compassion…and hope for a bright future.

Happy day two…into 2022…..

The Dawn of 2022…

January 1, 2022 is here…

A new day…another year…to make sure there will be a 22nd Century for humankind and our planet…

Will we forge a year that will build a path of insurance to that milestone?

We have been given a view into what we must change in ourselves in order to have continuity…of humankind and our planet. Now is the crucial moment in time that we must take heed and act to the best of our abilities and ourselves to give the next generation the tools to continue life with purpose and humility…

Time is no longer on our side. We cannot continue to wallow in the useless and mundane ways of living…materialism…false superiority…self-centered behaviors…egocentric beliefs…

We must stop believing in the preservation of “life” which does not include every human being…and every living entity which resides upon this planet. If we do not, we must face the dismal reality that the act that took place over 2000 years ago has no meaning…and served no purpose…and love…there is no love…only a superficial reflection of human perception…and demonstration.

But those who have ears to hear and eyes to see…know better…we were given salvation…and we understand the power of Love…and it’s endless miracles…magic…and transformative energies…

For those of us who have been given and extended the gift of life to see this first day of 2022…let us continue to be purposeful in our collective journey in propagating change…growth…wisdom…justice…compassion…hope…connectivity…enlightenment…and love…for the betterment…uplifting…and preservation of life and our planet…

Life cannot continue in reckless abandon and neglect of what propelled humanity out of Darkness into Light…

Celebrate this first day of 2022 by celebrating and appreciating Life…how close you may have come to not standing in this moment…and work to ensure these moments of renewal can come again…

Happy New Year!!!!

Count your blessings…..
