Food For Thought…

While out on my daily walks this past week at a beautiful forest park in the middle of the city where I live,  I noticed many people out walking, running and biking along the trails…without masks…and without social distancing, which is posted in visual and worded detail, upon entering the park… Children are present with a parent or two…Boys and girls soccer teams…elderly people…without masks…sans social distancing….

Here is some food for thought…

We all breathe the same air… when people are running without masks, walking, biking and socializing, believing that they are protected because they are in the “open air”…did you ever stop to think about the transmission of this virus? It is AIRBORNE…

The open air, is not going to protect you from the virus…because it is airborne.  It travels through the air.  When someone coughs…or sneezes…or breathes heavily, as in running, they are releasing particles from their mouths…which are large particles…aerosol in nature, into the open air… When one comes behind them, they are exposing themselves to whatever is lingering in the air after that person or persons has expelled the contents of their person…into the air.

Asymptomatic…contagious…one has no idea…yet, one is exposing themselves to a greater possibility of contracting Covid-19, because they believe they are “safe” in an open air environment. So…why wear masks? Why practice social distancing? Why care about the next person? Chances are, you’re good, right?

Wear a mask. Period. Practice social distancing. Period. Why take chances? Maybe it would take you or someone you love to contract this disease…would that bring it home to finally take heed?

Don’t play Russian roulette with your health or the health of others… Until everyone takes this virus seriously and practices social distancing and wearing masks…it’s going to prolong the longevity of this disease.  Defiance will only result in more sickness…death…and shutdowns…

This is the new normal…be flexible and willing to change your lifestyle for now. If everyone does their civic duty to themselves and our communities, we can and will beat the odds of this pandemic.

This virus is airborne…wear a mask at all times, outside of your home…no matter what you are doing…and especially when you are out at parks and recreational areas where groups of people gather…believing…that because they are outdoors…they are safe…and there is no need of masks…or social distancing…

Nothing could be farther from the truth…use common sense…be wise…once this virus is under control and a vaccine is available, safe, tested and proven to contain and stop the spread of Covid-19…then…and only then…can masks come off…and social distancing, will clearly be a choice of liking or disliking someone enough…to let them get close….

Just some Food For Thought……

Divine Justice…Or Poetic Justice?

Divine Justice or Poetic Justice?

Consequences…Consequences…Consequences…

Divine Justice holds all beings to justice and comes from the Spiritual Source…

Poetic Justice comes from defiance of facts…by the facts of experiencing a fitting or deserved retribution for one’s actions…

Either way, one cannot mock God…or challenge truth of facts…without Consequence.

Covid-19 is a fact.  It is contagious.  It spreads.  It Kills…

More than 200,000 lives…in the United States alone… are now gone, and give testament to the reality of this virus…and its deadly consequences.

To believe otherwise is foolish… To act invincible…a potential death sentence.

How many among us continue to wear blinders and may be potentially spreading this virus by being asymptomatic, or knowing they are feeling sick with symptoms, and passing it off as nothing…still not containing these signs…and infecting others by not practicing Social Distancing and Mask wearing?!

Make no mistake…Divine Justice or Poetic Justice…or both…will be paying you a visit…should you continue to harm others by not protecting yourself…and them…by practicing social distancing and wearing a mask!

The one who could walk on water…turn water into wine…feed the multitudes with five loaves of bread and two fish…raise the dead…give the blind sight…and heal the sick and disabled…and raise from the dead himself…has yet to return here after his departure over 2000 years ago! I haven’t seen anyone since with his abilities…

Super humans and Super heroes who have powers of invincibility? They live in comic books and movies….

Everyone is a target…this virus does not differentiate…it plays no favorites…it is always on the prowl and looking for hosts to further its mission.

Wear a mask…whenever you go outside of your home…Practice social distancing…always!!!

Protect the young and the elderly…and all those in between.  NO ONE IS SAFE. NO ONE IS INVINCIBLE….

So many who denied the reality of the Coronavirus…who callously played with its existence…who flagrantly encouraged others that there was no danger…that the virus could be controlled and arrested by outlandish practices…while refusing to wear a mask and inviting others to follow suit… Well…they have been visited by Divine and Poetic Justice….

Please take heed…Divine Justice and Poetic Justice will be stepping up their visits…

Be vigilant…Be wise…Take care of one another…We are all in this together…Look out for one another…We all belong to one family called Humanity…

Our survival depends upon our shepherding one another…and continually practicing social distancing…and wearing masks….first and foremost…and ALWAYS… This…IS…our normal.

Be safe…

The lives you save…will include your own.

October may be the scariest month yet…minus Halloween…

Divine Justice…and Poetic Justice…are waiting around the corner…

Wear your mask…as if your life depended on it…

Because it does….

First Day Of Fall…and We Continue to Fall…

Today is the first day of Fall…and we continue to fall…

The hypocrisy continues with the present administration and the replacement for Ruth Bader Ginsberg…the coronavirus is still being ignored by many…and we are losing ground with Mother Nature caught up in Global Warming…

First day of Fall…and we continue to fall…

If we continue to ignore what is going on around us…the next fall will be inevitably the hardest…The Fall of a Nation…

Save the Planet…Save our Nation…Your voice will make the difference.

Revelations 13:5 reads…”The beast was given a mouth to utter proud words and blasphemies and to exercise his authority for forty-two months.”

Trump was given free reign to exercise his authority since his invasion of the WH….Forty-two months…This reign is now over. Those who allowed it…are not aligned with Truth and Light…Those who have ears…let them hear… Those who have eyes…Let them see…

Come November…Step up! Deliver our Nation from Evil…or we shall Fall into oblivion….

The First Day of Fall is Fall…when we can watch the leaves change…and fall peacefully to the ground in palettes of brilliant, bright color.

The first day of Fall is your signal…to change…

Don’t Fall into silence…

Don’t Fall into despair…

Don’t Fall into darkness…

Don’t Fall apart…

Fall into readiness…to change the channel to a better program…

Forty-two days left…until?

Don’t Fall on your way…to make that change…

Fall…into…Fall…

And land on your feet!

The first Day of Fall…

Write the ending….

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….

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….


 

 

 

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!!!

 

 

 

 

 

June End Summation…Patience…Common Sense…Compassion…

Here we are…at another month’s end…Where are we going? What have we learned?

We’re going to Hell in a hand basket…and we’ve learned that the Coronavirus is in an upward surge again…social distancing and wearing masks just isn’t getting its message across to many…and the “young and invincible” are being hit the hardest in Covid-19’s rising new cases…

We’re going nowhere…and we’ve learned…Nothing. Due to the absence of Patience…Common Sense…and Compassion.

If people had patience, states would have remained in shutdown status until the end of August, early September…Yes, the economy and businesses would surely suffer…but lives would have been saved…testing strategies and trends would have had a better chance to reveal patterns of spread, and get more individual testing incorporated around the country to better identify asymptomatic individuals, as well as locate those who are positive.   We can always rebuild an economy and businesses…but we cannot revive those lives that are currently being lost, due to the lack of Patience…Common Sense…and Compassion.

Those who are practicing social distancing…wearing masks…staying at home…practicing patience…common sense and compassion, you are to be commended and given kudos, for thinking about others and yourselves during this critical time of life-changing consequence for all…

Heartfelt thanks to all of the healthcare professionals and others who are dedicated to attending and saving the lives of those taken down by this virus…Angels in the outfield…

Texas, Arizona and Florida are three of the states surging in new cases…and all three are led by Republican governors…urged by “someone’s” battle cry, to reopen the economy…Hmmm…who could that someone be? Well, his white-haired partner in crime is now wearing a mask…Hmmm…Maybe he’s figured something out…you think?! Come November…A Change is Gonna Come…

July is upon us…so is Independence Day…July 4th.  This is not a time to forget what is happening around us in rapid succession…Be smart…be cautionary…continue to care for one another and speak up when others are not… What is happening with this virus is not going to just disappear anytime soon…

In summation of June, we must learn to have eyes to see…and ears to hear…Human survival relies upon human patience…common sense…and compassion.  Don’t close your eyes and ears to what is going on around you…You, are a very important part of this equation…no one is immune…no one is invincible…do your part…

Continue protesting…Black Lives DO Matter! Practice social distancing and wear your masks, properly…for your sake…and the lives of those around you.  You are important to champion injustice…champion social distancing and use all protective measures during this pandemic…This is the “new normal” until a vaccine is developed…there is just no way around it! And yes, it is still a Pandemic.  The short reprieve…is over.

July awaits sense and sensibility…

In summation…Practice…

And what do we practice?

Patience…Common Sense…and Compassion…

Use PPE…and PCSC…

We hold each other’s lives…in our hands…

Be vigilant….

Think Outside of Yourself….

Today I went out to run some shopping errands…I was in a general merchandise retailer, shopping for specific food items I could only get there… I was standing there trying to make a choice between two items when I was approached by two women talking and pushing their cart in my direction… I looked up and one had on a mask, and the other had her mask pulled down under her chin, talking across to the other woman…

Rather than excuse themselves to let me know they wanted to get something very close to me, so I could allow them to enter into my space,  by backing up and practicing social distancing while they made their choices, they just walked up within inches of me and took items off the shelf where I stood, and didn’t back away to keep the six inches of required social distancing, posted on top of every shelf, spacing the distance for customers!

”So much for “social distancing,” I said to them.    The older of the two looked at me as if I’d spoken a foul word…and the other, who was younger, maybe mid to late twenties, said, “I’m a scientist, I’m not worried about it.” I replied, “You should be.” “I’m not.” She said. “I know what’s really going on…”

So I replied, “You’re a scientist? Then tell me what you know so I can know what you know.”

In a nutshell, she explained how the virus affected two percent of the population, whereas the flu virus affected three percent of the population…she went on to say that it was a “money” thing, because where she worked, they laid off many scientists so it would affect the research and the making of money for a vaccine…she summed up by saying it wasn’t as serious as everyone thinks…and she wasn’t worried about it, or possibly being infected by it… and she stays most of the time, in the house!

Isn’t “isolating” a form of social distancing ? Isn’t that a big reason why this virus was being held at bay, and a good possibility as to why she was unaffected so far?

Well, it turned out these ladies were mother and daughter…and her mother said, “Well, I’m old, I work in a hospital as a case manager, I wear my mask all day…and I’m scared.”

After telling her she wasn’t “old,” I did say that I was “old” as well, and her daughter could be my daughter, if I had one. Then I said, “As a matter-of-fact, you ARE my daughter, and I would say to you, you can believe as you want, but practice social distancing…for the others you come into contact with.”  I told her that I wear my mask not only for my protection…but for her protection as well…Anyone can be asymptomatic…

I continued my lecture to her, and her mother nodded and commented in agreement.  All young people know all and can solve all world problems…including their own…they are fearless…and the world is going to know their names! How familiar that sounds to most of us…

They may change the world and someday cure physical diseases, and social diseases such as racism, hatred, prejudice and discrimination…however, until then…practice common sense and safety during this pandemic…be safe for others…wear masks and practice social distancing…even if you believe you are invincible…

Think Outside of Yourself…it is your responsibility to be responsible during this crucial time in our history of surviving a health crisis that hovers over the planet at this time.

No one is immune…reinfection can occur…asymptomatic carriers are walking time-bombs to many…

Please be vigilant…practice the required safety measures…if not for concern for yourselves…practice for the concern and safety of others…and you will be doing a great service to yourself, and others.

Our daily lives have never known the compound fractures and breaks which are cropping up everywhere…all over…in various and precarious situations endangering everyone…some more than others…in all walks and positions…and stations in life…be kind…be caring…be watchful…show compassion…lead with humility…be the ever Good Samaritan…

Now…more than ever…Think Outside of Yourself…

A life may depend on it…and it may be yours….

 

Birthday Reflections…

June 1st is the day I came into being six decades and 6 years ago…There are many chapters which fill the six, and nearly half volumes of my life… There have been many adventures…romances…fiction…nonfiction…fantasy…science fiction…mysteries…travels…novels…history…poetry…drama…drama…and more drama!

Reflecting on what’s happening in our world today…a pandemic that projects science fiction proportions…and a country in further crisis by an administration based on fiction…and drama…drama…and more drama…

I constantly ask myself, “How did we get here?! How did we as a people, come to this pace of utter spiritual bankruptcy and human deprivation? How did “civilization” degress to such a potpourri of chaos and decay?

I grew up in the sixties…the decade of Love…I always believed that the world was on its way to becoming better…I guess I allowed my my rose-colored glasses to become more factual than the fashionable accessory they were meant to be…

I have seen and experienced horrors and tragedies…and rather than give in to the darkness of the moments and occasions…I’ve worked at using them to understand…persevere…grow…educate…relate…and translate these life changing episodes into levels of enlightenment…one must never let life become too heavy as to crush you…under what comes your way…Nor let your heart become cold, hard and embittered at what may confront you on your journey through life…

While I have seen and experienced much…I have not experienced all…and most likely, never will…

As long as I am still here, it is my intention to live for love…to live to give love…to live to experience more love…to live and show by example, that love is…and always will be the key…to a life well spent…My “Better Blessed” is Love….

What I have managed to learn in my short time upon this planet…is that life is precious…and there are those who are far too concentrated on destroying life…by destroying love…

We are all children of Love…We are all children of the Universe…We are all Children of God…The Force…Buddha…Allah…Jehovah…Yahweh…Love…

The next time you come across…or see anything or anyone…out of step with love…sow your seeds of love upon that troubled place or soul…

Birthday Reflections belong to all of us…we must reflect upon our lives and how we are living…and what we are giving…to make ourselves and our world…blessed and better…for everyone…everyday…and if that is too much…to make it an everyday thing… reflect on your birthday…it will give you a perspective on life, like no other…

My birthday wish…is for everyone…everywhere…to take a moment…start small, and increase each day, in becoming the best of yourselves with love…and giving love…and watching out for one another…in the name of love…no matter who they are and especially if they do not look like you…

We are all a part of the human family…whether we like it or not…whether we care to be…or not. Nothing in this universe can change that…so stop trying…give in to Love…

2000 years ago, One gave His Life…in the name of Love…to save a race…The Human Race….Birthday Reflections will allow you to see yourself…Let that reflection be Love….

Happy Birthday….to you…..

The best Happy Birthday Images | Happy birthday fun, Happy ...
