Coming Into Our Own…

Since my last post, I have been standing back…observing…and keeping a silent and constant vigil for the restoration of our country and the salvation of the goodness that runs through the veins of many, and holds the heart of what America is truly all about, together….

We are witnessing an era in the history of mankind about to come to a close… It will come with many sensational transformations and many steps back into the Dark Ages of our nation’s formation…unless we understand the meaning of “We the people…” and coming into our own…

One thing I have noticed time and time again about human nature is some people refuse to believe what is right in front of them.  They live in a perpetual state of denial, and this fatal flaw will lead to the ultimate downfall of civilization as we know it.  At this moment, there is an “Enemy of the State” in the White House, wreaking havoc with our nation and our place in the world…and the blind quest for power and greed has overshadowed the imminent danger of this intruder!

He has come to steal, kill and destroy…and all anyone can see is the selfishness of their own pieces of agenda placed within the whole of his deceitful and scandalous plot to dismantle and demoralize democracy and the contributories to its continuance.

Every second of everyday, we dunk our souls in the fountain of gullibility spewing from some political grifter’s lips, believing every licentious platitude, as if they were promising manna from heaven…in deliverance of the now distant and unreachable “American Dream.” Much too drunk on their fodder to understand that the American Dream is not the attainment of the material, but the principles and values that give us passage to attain the dreams that we dream!

Freedom…gives us the ability to dream…and pursue life, liberty and happiness in formulating our dreams to fruition.  This is guaranteed to us by our own abilities to uphold and enforce our blueprint: the Constitution of the United States, reinforced by our “spiritual gifts” of Truth…Honesty…and Integrity.  Without these, we are just sheep going to slaughter…on the “faith-healing” of fools!

“Coming into our own” is the light switch of real democracy! We the people give meaning to laws, government, and any “body” of any kind that needs the presence and cooperation of “people” to make them viable and operable…without “we the people” in full understanding of our being to make anything “work”, everything would come to a full halt!  Lies…manipulation…promises…smoke and mirrors are all tools to keep we the people from realizing the real and true power of democracy!

Coming into our own has been a slow and painful process of discovery and truth…however, lights are coming on everywhere, and we must not step back into the darkness, or let #45 and his minions continue to dismantle our democracy with their lies…manipulation…promises…deceptions…smoke and mirrors…distractions…demoralizations…character assassinations and talks of walls and bans!

This is not leadership, nor is it the “American Way” of the good in those of us that understand what the ideal of America is all about.  It is that good that has penetrated the darkness of those who still don’t get America…such a great loss for them! They will implode on their darkness, as long as we continue and strive in… coming into our own!

A New Day Dawning…

Yesterday, I wrote this piece and posted it on Facebook… I felt that I should post it on my blog for those who follow my blog, and to ask all to share it.  It is time for everyone to take a moment and reflect upon what is really happening in our country, and come to terms with the realization that our lives will never, ever be the same again.  We are all being called to service…there are no longer shades of gray.  We all know what we must do…have courage…our angels will rush to defend!!!

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…lead 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, 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…
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…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…and 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…who built this country, and who are bent on healing the wounds and ceasing the pain caused to those who were here before us, and those who will 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!!!!”

Does America Deserve Trump?

When evil doings are allowed to prevail over truth, assisted with the full cooperation of our governmental systems, not only has our systems failed, along with them exit sovereign integrity everywhere.

The exchanges made to uphold tangible objects over morality have damned humanity forever…

America was envisioned as a place free from persecution, oppression, prejudices of any kind, discrimination, religious restriction, and proclaimed a land of second chances for those who went askew of the laws in their native lands, and a land of opportunity with the fulfillment of dreams to all who sought a new life upon entering her shores…

Equality. Liberty. Freedom…at last. Not so…not so!

Lest we call near extermination and Reservation encampment of our Native American brothers and sisters, equality, liberty, and freedom…still denying their rights to their land by authorizing the encroaching  pipelines, without a thought to their survival, health or welfare…

Equality…liberty…freedom…is that what we call the enslavement, gratuitous lynching, legalized genocide, continued denial of Civil and Human Rights to our Black American brothers and sisters, and their enslaved African Ancestors, brought here from their country, in chains?! We did not learn from the Holocaust of Nazi Germany?! Another has risen and been in continuous operation…because of “difference of appearance” among the status quo…

How do we account for the mistrust of Japanese Americans, who came to and settled in America to have their dreams of equality, liberty and freedom realized? Their loyalties were recognized by placing over 100,000 in internment camps…stripped of their dignity and the lives they built for themselves, here…due to Japan’s actions in WWII…The operative word completely overlooked…”Americans.” Japanese by heritage…yet, Americans!

Executive order 9066, signed by President Franklin D. Roosevelt on February 19, 1942, changed lives forever… Sixty-two percent of the internees were American citizens.

In 1988, President Ronald Reagan signed into law the Civil Liberties Act, which apologized for the internment and authorized a $20,000 payment to every surviving internee… it was admitted that the government actions were based on “race prejudice, war hysteria and a failure of political leadership.”

This travesty began February 19, 1942…lasting until March 20, 1946…

February is Black History Month…

Emmett Till…Trayvon Martin…Michael Brown Jr. …Tamir Rice…Sandra Bland… and the endless stream of men, women and children  who have become a part of Black History… because race prejudice is still alive and ongoing in the “land of the free.”

Does America deserve Trump?

“Number 45” has demonstrated an all too familiar pattern with his Republican constituents and cabinet picks who embody the tradition of “race prejudice, war hysteria and failure of political leadership.”   Let’s also add “devoid of any political leadership or political leadership skills.”

It is one thing to change the political face of a governing party…what we are witnessing are the deep seeded roots of dysfunctionalism and destruction born out of hatred, insecurities, greed and a quest for power so intense, that the “Republican Regime” is willing to sink a nation and further induce chaos in a world that is on the brink of exploding…

We must rise above the pettiness…we must look at our past…we must remember…we must not be complicit and turn a blind eye to the “elephants” trampling our liberties and our freedom…we must defend our brothers and sisters under siege…Look in the mirror…they are us, and we are them…they are our family…they are our children…they are human beings…we are humanity first, and Americans, second.

Without our humanity…there are no Americans…without humanity, there are no Canadians…British…French…Italians…Danish…Egyptians….Irish…Africans…All continents would perish…

Somewhere…somehow, we have managed to have enough love to keep us here…somewhere…somehow…we must find enough love to save what makes us beautiful and worth saving to those who have already given their lives before us…who have left their dreams behind for us to maintain…and protect to longevity.

The greatness of America is in the diversity of her people… the richness of America is reflected in the collective contributions of her immigrant population and Native American infusion.

Does America deserve Trump and the Republican Regime?

Let us not sink into darkness by allowing the worst of us to convince us that we must take the road back to antiquity….

RESIST.

Mr. Trump…

I cannot put “President” before your name, because you’re not my president…and from your actions since taking over the White House, you’re not the people’s president either.

My mother taught me to respect all people…including the fools among us…hence, the “Mr.” Trump…You are a classic “social” anti-social…you seek to lay waste to all that is good and just in the United States from the highest seat in the nation affecting other parts of the world, under the guise of “Making America Great, Again.”

We will examine that phrase in more depth at another time…but for now, your task at “making greatness” has been nothing more than promoting more divisiveness, chaos and oppression…

The greatness of America lays in her meaning…Yes, the Statue of Liberty in New York Harbor, is a woman, a beacon of freedom for those seeking sanctuary and a new life of liberty, along with the pursuit of happiness, in her land…such is your respect for women!

Lest you’ve forgotten, you are the product of immigrants…your wife is an immigrant…in your latest order to ban Muslim immigrants into the country, and your assaults on other immigrants, you are also hurling insults at the memory of your parents, and slapping your wife in the face!

Ignoring your own history as an immigrant, much like Adolf Hitler held blond and blue-eyed to be the “superior in race,” as he himself was brown-eyed, brown hair…to his own admission in description of superior… he was”inferior.”

The indigenous people of the United States of America are Native Americans…Not White Supremacists…perhaps that is why you can so callously sign the halted Dakota Access Pipeline back into play, ignoring the repercussions to health, welfare, tribal customs and environment devastation…just to make a few extra bucks.  The few thousand jobs created short-term are not worth the massive destruction you’ve endorsed…

You do not represent “we the people”… You do not represent the dream of the Founding Fathers… You do not represent the Constitution of the United States…You are not representative of what the dreams and ideals of America stand for…

Your actions, your words, your thoughts, your deeds…are everything that America is not.  Your “style guide” is not a book recommended for anyone’s read or instruction.  Accepting you would make you my accepted style guide…and I don’t accept you… You have no heart…no soul…

ISIS cuts off heads…You, Mr. Trump…you cut out hearts….

“The greater the power, the more dangerous the abuse.”

The Women’s March…

20170121_110856

The Women’s March on Washington DC, took place on Saturday, January 21, 2017….It was such an incredible moment in time! The energy was phenomenal, and the unity was undeniable.20170121_111413-1

The diversity of America was well represented in the sea of 500,000 plus women and families who showed up filling the Great Mall and beyond, to give voice to and protect the liberties and hard fought for human, women, and civil rights which have shaped America as a nation of freedom around the globe!

New friendships were formed in revisiting the sacrifices made for independence, freedom of speech, and the right to dream, in a country guided by a Constitution that defines and celebrates its guarantee and means to ensure life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness…

The bittersweet realization of this March was to bring home the meaning of America to a changing of the guard in the White House who have lost their prospective on what America is really all about…

The Women’s March was just the beginning…

I’m humbled to have been a small part in maintaining the legacy of freedom and equality…which is the formation and the great promise…of America.

Business As Usual? Not Today!

As each new day comes and goes…a feeling grows and grows…

Today, January 11th, was an unusual day for me…a day of many calls…The energy of anxiety is here, and it’s growing! So many people have taken a backseat to everything believing that all things will resume in business as usual…No…No…never again! Those who feel the unrest within, can’t put their finger on it, yet they know something is in the air…things are out of sorts.

Some people called me two and three times when we did not first connect…Some I spoke and listened to for over an hour…maybe longer.  Some will wait until tomorrow…

Life will never be the same! Get ready for a ride wilder than Mr. Toad’s!

For those of you who know and see and feel it in your gut…Be the beacon and shine a light in the darkness that seeks to extinguish all that is good and just in the world…and within each and every one of us! Protect the pure in heart…the meek…the helpless…the most vulnerable among us… Uplift the weary…guide the lost… Embrace and reassure. For this is why you were chosen…What is in your heart is known.

Business as usual? Not today! Your days will always be full…

These are the times…Your time has arrived…..

 

Year One…Day 10… Equals…Day One….

a66cdf2ab038c913cf963b16d2c2de8f

Again…we are back to the beginning…

What can heal us in these turbulent and troubling times ahead? More chaos and dissention is definitely not the answer… What makes division so attractive to the melodic tones of peace and tranquility?

Year One, day 10 equals Day One…another opportunity to set the world right! So much power in the palm of your hand…in the recesses of your heart…in the essence of your being!  If only our limited understanding could comprehend and embrace it with every atom that comprises our presence in this world… Will we ever? Can we see past our obstacles and cluttered vision to grasp with clarity?

Everyday in America, we can change the course of a stray bullet…an unkind word…or an entity filled with hatred…

We can soothe a hungry man, woman or child… with food to strengthen their hunger, physically as well as spiritually… We can shelter a homeless someone…with the warmth of a blanket in many forms… Nurture and embrace a motherless child…Walk a mile in someone’s shoes… to familiarize yourself of how fortunate you really are…once you can feel their burden and pain!

We are not lost in the wilderness…we are lost in illusions of our own making….

We know the key…Day One…Year One…Day 10 equals 1+0 = 1…Day One was the beginning…Day One God Created…His Day One began with…Love.

Begin again…with Love. Love transforms…Love creates miracles…Love is magic…When will you discover and understand? Love is not carnal…love is not a “feeling.”

Love is infinity…Love…is all there IS.

It is…the Alpha and the Omega…the source of all…the key to all creation…the answer to eternity…

Year One…Day One.

Here we are…seven days into the new year of 2017…Year One…

What has changed? Another random shooting spree at an airport in Florida…A sixteen year old stabbed a relative yesterday… same headlines, different year. Have you changed? Notice anything different about anything?! Seven days…a new year…Really?!

Believe! Be the Change! Open your hearts! Believe! When you REALLY BELIEVE THAT YOU ARE THE CHANGE…you will change the energy of the world…and the world will change!

God made the world in six days…if you believe you are the change and become the change by bringing forth your light and depositing your “better” into everything that you say, think and do…you will see the positive changes…within seconds….every second, someone changes the world by committing desperate and mindless acts…you can change the world by a kind word…a smile… a commitment to be a better being… Seven days can make or obliterate a planet…You have 358 days to create a better tomorrow…Start now.

Year One…Day One…2017

Image result for images of new beginnings

Here we are…Today we awakened to a brand new day and a brand new year.  What hopes and expectations will be realized?

2017…Year One…January 1st…Day One…carry over nothing…and begin anew.  The world can have a fresh beginning…you can have a fresh beginning…if you leave your baggage behind, and shed your old skin for your new “set of clothes.”

While you’re at it, give yourself a new attitude and a new agenda. Bathe yourself in spiritual truth and arm yourselves with clear and balanced emotions.  Clean up your clutter and clear the way for putting your contributions into motion toward constructing a future with promise!

2017 is presenting itself as an interactive new year…a year of “hands on” change. The shackles of yesteryear have no place in 2017, and the future this year will build.

What do you see? A better place for your children? A world which celebrates the gift of diversity? A whole and flourishing worldwide environment, healing from the  leaching of our planet? Humanity finally embracing peace and unity?

Year One…Day One, is the place to begin…. Resignation of yourself does not have a place in 2017.  What was, is not “now.” Remember…you hold the power of change…you have been given a New Year, to make a difference….the “old” has given way to the “new.” Every second is fluid and subject to change…

Be the change you would like to see in the world…Be the man or woman in the mirror…Realize the dream…Gandhi…Michael Jackson and Martin Luther King  left behind these seeds…2017 can be the soil in which they take hold…each and everyone of us can make it so!

2017…Year One…Day One…our time to build….
