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…..

2021…This Year is Done…2022…We All Become New…

Here we stand reflecting on 2021…after today, a year all done. What will you leave behind…and what will you bring forward in the New Year?

How and what did you contribute to the year we are leaving behind, in a matter of hours? With the restrictions of the pandemic, politics, and altered nature causing horrific tolls on our country and the world, how did you make your presence felt in the last twelve months? Were you a beast… a burden? Were you a saint or a sinner? Were you naughty or nice? Were you an instigator or a Savior? Were you an innovator or a diehard? Can you look back on 2021 and say that you were the best of yourself? Or can you be honest enough to say you weren’t?

Each year becomes more riddled with obstacles and trials that test our mettle and our humanity…

Each year…we are called into the role of shepherd…and each year…we fall short.

Each year…we are given the realization of our connections to one another…and our planet…and our ignorance prevails…

For each one of us Time is finite…It is a reality that we face every day…If anything has given us that sobering realization…let’s start with our introduction last year to the coronavirus…and it’s continuing reign.

What will you bring forward in the New Year?

What about a new you?

A new you with the realization that you cannot rely upon someone you give your vote to…to represent your best interests…understand that there is not one with a heart of gold…or who can walk on water…and promises in politics…are always made to be broken…

This new you will also have the realization that life on our planet has had it’s longevity cut in half because the powers that be…have chosen to honor and support the almighty exchange…money…instead of the continuity of life on all levels…

The new you will realize that change is in your hands…it is your power to change every circumstance which hinders or suppresses opportunities to rise into the stratosphere of humanity at it’s best and finest.

The new you will realize that we can arrest and control the coronavirus from its constant mutations…by everyone practicing the protocols that would protect every man, woman and child…because we have the compassion and common sense to understand that we must stand together to conquer that which seeks to divide us…permanently.

No one’s rights are being challenged, taken away or restricted by sense and sensibilities…that tell us that the right thing to do is to ensure continuity of life by doing whatever is available to stop the loss of another million lives…The new you holds that power in the palm of your hands…The new you is and always has been the instrument of Change…

You…me…we are the catalyst of creating the best life and conditions for our human family….

2022 is upon us…

Close the door on 2021…bring forward the new you in 2022…

Thanks for the lessons 2021…So long…Farewell…Goodbye….

Whatever the New Year brings…

It begins with…You.

Become New…in 2022….

Two More Days to Make Your Mark In 2021…

There are two days left to make your mark in 2021…

You can sharpen your teeth on these last two days in preparation to be an incredible contributor to the betterment of you…and your life uplifting contributions in 2022!

Our duty in life is our amazing ability to make dismal situations magically transform to miraculous events…and it can happen with just a smile…a kind word…or continuing to follow Covid protocols…in preserving your life…and the lives of others!

Understand that without our actions to make the best out of situations that present obstacles…obstacles will never be overcome…

Don’t ever believe that what you cannot uplift or affect someone or some circumstance… You are here to initiate change…growth…and enlightenment…within yourself and the lives you touch with your thoughts, words and deeds.

Make your mark…you still have time to improve upon the year of 2021…

This too shall pass…

Again you are called….

To make a difference.

The 7 Kwanzaa Principles Are Universal…

Today, December 26, begins the celebration of Kwanzaa, until January 1, 2022.

Each day is dedicated to one of the seven principles which are as follows:

  1. Umoja – Unity
  2. Kujichaguilia – Self-Determination
  3. Ujima – Collective Work and Responsibility
  4. Ujamaa – Cooperative Economics
  5. Nia – Purpose
  6. Kuumba – Creativity
  7. Imani – Faith

These seven principles, or Nguzo Saba in Kiswahili, are universal in their practice and purpose…something we can all engage in dedicating ourselves to observe and practice…everyday.

This is the time for families and communities to come together to remember the past and to celebrate African American culture…The diversity of humankind declares in every voice…every holiday observed…in every Race…Creed…and Culture…the importance and contributions…the struggles…atrocities…victories…losses…successes…any and all imaginable hills…valleys…mountains and challenges…human created…or created by forces out of humankind’s control…have concluded with survival and the recognition of the best of the human spirit…in the community and family of human beings…known as the Human Race.

Let us choose a principle…or all seven, and practice making significant contributions to the growth and continuity of our human family and communities…

We must learn to understand and embrace our connectivity to one another….celebrate it…nurture it…protect it…respect it…love it.

It has never been about declaring “separatism” in any form…yet we have come to create schisms to stand apart and divide our family…and our communities…

God or the force you believe to accept…created diversity to test the human spirit…to test it’s acceptance of beauty…and how it is defined…in your eyes…In God’s eyes…the beauty of every diverse creation is loved…cherished…and uplifted…God does not differentiate…the condemnation comes from the lack of love….How deep and comprehensive is humankind’s understanding and practice of Love?

Start by celebrating Kwanzaa…the Seven Principles of Kwanzaa are Universal…

Educate yourself to the beauty of diversity…

Strive to understand…and practice the multiverse of Love…

Happy Kwanzaa!!!!

The Twelve Days Of Christmas Begin On Christmas Day…

Merry Christmas!!! While today is December 25th and Christmas Day…Did you know that the Twelve Days of Christmas also begin today? It is the belief that the 12 days of Christmas were the amount of time it took the Three Wise Men, or Three Kings to travel to Bethlehem for the Epiphany after Jesus was born. Accordingly, the Epiphany was the “revelation” that Jesus was revealed to be the “Savior” of Mankind as promised by the Divine through Prophecy…

The First Day of Christmas, which is Christmas Day, Celebrates the birth of Jesus…The Christ.

The Second Day of Christmas, Boxing Day or Saint Stephen’s Day, remembers the first martyr of Christianity, which was St. Stephen.

The Third Day of Christmas Celebrates Saint John, the Apostle, or Saint John the Beloved. He is the patron saint of love, loyalty, friendships, authors, booksellers, burn victims, poison victims, art-dealers, editors, publishers, scribes, examinations, scholars and theologians…Saint John wrote the Book of Revelation.

The Fourth Day of Christmas is the Feast of the Holy Innocents…this day remembers all of the babies murdered by King Herod in his search to find and kill baby Jesus.

The Fifth Day of Christmas remembers the Archbishop of Canterbury, Saint Thomas Becket, who was killed because he challenged the king’s authority of the church.

The Sixth Day of Christmas Celebrates Saint Egwin of Worcester who is known as the protector of orphans and the widowed…he died in 717.

The Seventh Day of Christmas, which is New Year’s Eve, celebrates Pope Sylvester I, who filled the see of Rome at an important era of the Christian Roman Empire, or the Western Church…He died in Rome, Italy on December 31, 335 AD.

The Eight Day of Christmas on New Year’s Day, Celebrates Mary, the mother of Jesus.

The Ninth Day of Christmas honors two important Christians, Saint Basil the Great and Saint Gregory Nazianzen, from the 4th century. Saint Basil the Great was a Byzantine bishop and influential theologian who supported the Nicene Creed and opposed the heresies of the early Christian church. He was born in Kayseri, Turkey in 330 AD and died January 1, 379 AD. Saint Gregory was born in Arianzum, (known as Nazianzus) Cappadocia in 329 AD and was the Archbishop of Constantinople and a theologian, considered the most accomplished rhetorical stylist of the Patristic Era, or early Christian writers who were designated Church Fathers. He died January 25, 390 AD.

The Tenth Day of Christmas Celebrates the Feast of the Holy Name of Jesus…when Jesus was named in the Jewish Temple.

The Eleventh Day of Christmas Celebrates Saint Elizabeth Ann Seton, the first American saint. She was born on August 28, 1774, In New York, NY, and died January 4, 1821, in Emmitsburg, MD. She was a Catholic religious sister and an educator, and the founder of the country’s parochial school system.

The Twelfth Day of Christmas is Epiphany Eve, known as that because it is January 5, the day before Epiphany, the Three Kings’ Day, a Christian Festival, which begins on January 6, celebrating how a star led the Magi to the baby Jesus….

The Twelve Days of Christmas isn’t just a Christmas song…it is also known as Twelvetide, a Christian religious celebration centered around the Nativity.

It is believed also that the Twelve Days of Christmas symbolize a different aspect of the Christian religion…

A partridge in a pear tree represents Jesus…

Two turtle doves…the Old and New Testaments…

Three French hens…Faith…Hope and Charity…

Four calling birds….the four gospels…

Five golden rings…the first five books of the Old Testament…

Six geese…the six days of creation….

Seven swans…the gifts of the Holy Spirit…

Eight maids…the eight blessings given by Jesus in the Sermon on the Mount, in the Gospel of Matthew…

Nine ladies dancing…the nine different fruits of the Holy Spirit…

Ten lords….the Ten Commandments…

Eleven pipers…the eleven faithful Apostles…

Twelve drummers…the twelve points of the doctrine in the Apostle’s Creed…

Take these twelve days of Christmas and create at least twelve days more to carry out the Spirit of Christmas…

Continue with Faith…Hope…and Charity. Begin your own new tradition….We have been through a two-year period of thoughtful isolation…time alone that has allowed us to reflect…and given us moments through this travail…to touch the face of God…

Let us change in the twinkling of an eye…let us reach out…let us give our hearts in the spirit of what was given to all of us with the birth of Christ…Let us remember that we are all blessed….that we are all saviors…and shepherds…Messengers…and Deliverers…remember that life is not an everyday promise…but a gift…

As you continue to ponder your thoughts and reflect on the events of your Christmas Day…be good…be kind…be forgiving…be thankful…to yourself…and to others…

Renew…with your twelve days of Christmas…

Give and receive the love….

Your twelve days of Christmas awaits…

Make someone smile…and feed your soul…..

Merry Christmas to all…and to all…

Feel the Love…because you are….
