God Works…

God Works…

Over the weekend, I went to a craft and hobby store to purchase a few items… A woman was standing in front of some of the supplies I wanted to buy…I waited…she looked at me and continued to block the items…she reached up to take something down which caused her to take a few steps away, clearing the path to what I needed…I leaned in and took it from its hanger, and she looked at me and said, “Was I in your way? I’m always in someone’s way!  I do it on purpose!” I laughed.  She laughed, and then she asked if I sewed, because she was trying to get back into sewing, and was looking for a rotary cutter…

I was wearing a mask and she was not.  My choice. Her choice…

Somehow she started talking about Covid…How she had just gotten over a mild case of it…How she was vaxed and boosted, yet she still got infected…she went on to say that she didn’t wear a mask when she was out and about, however, she was required to wear a mask at work. 

I divulged that I was also vaxed and boosted and I still choose to wear a mask whenever I go out in public places, around people, especially indoors…I said it works for me… She quickly said, “No, they don’t, they are like a placebo, but whatever works for you.”  I said, “No matter, God works!”  She then said, “Yes.”

I continued, “I have tested negative, and I have never been sick.  I may have had it before it was ever identified, because I had a cold and a slight temperature in November of 2020…or not, I don’t know, yet I have never tested positive.  I will continue doing what works for me…and God works.”

I waited to get the vaccine…I believe that God protects His children…

I wasn’t going to get it.  However, I asked for guidance and I was given an answer in a dream…I was in a clinic and the nurse said she had a few vials of the Pfizer vaccine left, and another nurse asked me if I was going to get a shot…I awakened reflecting on the dream…

That afternoon, I had a facial appointment.  The woman working on my face said she had just gotten over Covid.  She was masked and I was not because she was working on my face…That afternoon, I scheduled a vaccine shot for the next day.  I knew then that getting the vaccine would let me know…the power of God.

And it has…God works…

I have never tested positive.  I gave myself a rapid test in early May and it was negative…and on May 31st, I had one administered at a testing center because I was going to have a medical procedure and I required a negative test to have it.  The test was negative.

I told this story because forces are always at work to deter one from following their feelings on what is right…for you…and those around you…The statement given by the woman in the store that masks don’t work are her opinion, and her experience…

So she doesn’t believe in mask protocol…however, she wears one to work, because she knows who butters her bread…and she obviously needs to have it buttered…However, she chooses to exercise not wearing one in public, otherwise…which again, is her choice, especially because protocols are disappearing or it is a matter of choice, (if you’re vaccinated, if not, it is recommended) or still required in the medical field, (which I totally am in agreement with, in the medical field).

We must think for ourselves and weigh and choose our options wisely…

We always have the choice to be our best selves…

Our best selves give us the opportunity to touch others in very unique and positive ways…

Consciously…and unconsciously…we touch lives…and we have the opportunity to elevate our own lives in the process…

I practice protocols…and will continue to practice protocols…until Covid becomes as simple and mild as a cold…

Until then…

God works…

God and Truth are constant…

Once the majority of Americans…and people around the world open up their hearts and minds to this reality…the best in everyone will become a priority…

And life will be elevated…

I believe…

Because…

God…Works.

Blow Away…And Let Life Begin Again…

George Harrison knew what he was composing when he wrote this song…

The pandemic came in and sent us all into this vision of mental cloudiness…maybe even a little depression…after two years we are beginning to see some light breaking through the storm clouds of everything that seems to find us…from Covid-19…Politics…Human Rights…Relationships…Life…

Just keep in mind…no matter where you are on the journey…The rain stops…the clouds part…the Sun shines through…Rainbows appear…and all becomes as right as rain once more…Reflect on George’s words…find the song and play it…watch the video…it will warm your heart…and remind you…You will come shining through…Yes…really…you will.

Blow Away….Blow Away…Blow Away

Day turned black, sky ripped apart

Rained for a year ’til it dampened my heart

Cracks and leaks

The floorboards caught rot

About to go down

I had almost forgot

All I got to do is to love you

All I got to be is, be happy

All it’s got to take is some warmth to make it

Blow Away, Blow Away, Blow Away

Sky cleared up, day turned to bright

Closing both eyes now the head filled with light

Hard to remember what a state I was in

Instant amnesia

Yang to the Yin

All I got to do is to love you

All I got to be is, be happy

All it’s got to take is some warmth to make it

Blow Away, Blow Away, Blow Away

Wind blew in, cloud was dispersed

Rainbows appearing, the pressures were burst

Breezes a-singing, now feeling good

The moment passed

Like I knew that it should

All I got to do is to love you

All I got to be is, be happy

All it’s going to take is some warmth to make it

Blow Away, Blow Away, Blow Away

I found this after writing this post…

I was in the garden and it was pouring down with rain, and I suddenly became aware that I was feeling depressed, being affected by the weather. and it’s important to remember that while everything else around you changes, the soul within remains the same; you have to constantly remember that and fight for the right to be happy.”

George Harrison on writing “Blow Away” to Rolling Stone Magazine

Blow it all away…and

Love…

And be happy…..

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.

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….

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….

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.

Thanks-In-Giving…

Being thankful to give is the message today…

People hold the fate of the world in the palm of their hands. When we realize that being thankful means what we give to the world…not what we take from it…is the meaning of true “Thanksgiving,” we will see a new light of positivity emerge in the world and in our lives.

We must take a step back and take a good look around our created worlds which we have created within the reality of what is going on around us…truly…with honesty and reflection. What can you give to the world that will change your life and the lives of others in a most positive way…to ensure that the world keeps on turning…healing…and giving us the very air that we breathe?

What can we give to someone…anyone…to improve upon their condition of struggle…adversity…pain…or add to the smiles and selfless giving that does, somehow, seem to find you…in your moments of empty nothingness that strikes like a viper in the most inopportune of moments?

Giving thanks is more than sitting down at a dinner table and sharing a meal…one day out of the year. Understand the message of Covid-19…How appreciative are we of our times spent with loved ones and friends? Until we fully understand the meaning of “family”…of “friends”…of human connectivity…and how we mock the gift of life by holding selfish beliefs above selfless giving…the world will continue to experience loss in life…and loss… in humanity….

Give thanks in being capable of giving…

Give thanks in what you have been given…in goodness and wisdom…that you can pass on in contributing to make the world whole and give it strength in supporting life and adding longevity to its journey of existence in our galaxy.

The Earth does not restrict or withhold in giving her gifts of life…Why must we?

Thanksgiving is so much more than what it is chosen to represent…

Give thanks for “Thanks-In-Giving.”

Give thanks that you can….

Everyday we are given another day of life…

Another day to give thanks….

Another day to give…

Another day to be thankful…and understand…everything we have…was given.

Everyday…is Thanksgiving.

Happy Thanksgiving…

Happy Thanks-In-Giving!!!!

Come In, November…

As we end the month of October on a note of “Trick or Treat,” let us hope that November, beginning on the celebration of “All Saints Day, will bring in an air of promise and truth that will encourage a return to “human” kindness…Prayers…Blessings…and Offerings….not only to those souls that have passed on but also to those living souls who remain.

I attended a Halloween celebration where it was declared that everyone present was fully vaccinated…My mask was a part of my costume…I don’t trust what people declare…We had four years of people declaring lies as truth…and those same people are still traveling around America pushing the same lies!

Anyway, one person showed up without a mask, defending their UN-vaccinated presence, and their opinion on masks…Well, my opinion is this: STAY HOME WITH YOUR OPINIONS!!!

There is always “One.”

Spare those of us who have consideration for others as well as ourselves. You can honor your rights without including those who have the same right to their opinions and their rights to exercise them as you do.

We are still being plagued by the same divisions in our population with people rebelling and striking out in selfish defense of “their rights” without considering the rights of others….

It is unfortunate that we don’t understand our “connectivity” to one another…how what we do…say…and react, has a like reaction…and most often…opposite consequences for those who are respectful and considerate of others…innocent, collateral damage to “selfishness.”

Here’s the bottom line….”Be who you are…as long as it doesn’t adversely affect the lives of others. Ponder it…understand it…get it, and practice it. To subject others to your point of view may have dangerous consequences…and should that be the case? Keep your freedom, and keep to yourself, until the “coast is clear.”

Human nature is still predictable and disheartening at how we continue to ignore and dismiss the bigger picture….

Let’s see if November can usher in some “saintliness” within our spirits…enough to give us a respect and selflessness to give humanity a chance to survive beyond the next few decades…at minimum…

Happy Halloween!

Come in, November….

Bring us some… Enlightenment…

October is Here…Now What?

We have entered the tenth month much the same as the last nine…Covid-19 statistics and push-back dramas…immigration fiascos…turning back the clock on personal freedoms…climate change eruptions making it clear that climate change IS here and making bold statements in weather delivery to reach those still in denial of environmental damage brought on by humankind’s ignorance in preserving and caring for the planet that sustains us…and due to such ignorance…may not be able to sustain us in the decades to come…

Political infighting which in itself is the foremost danger to the survival of democracy and the beloved dream of a free America…And while we are all trying our best to support…respect…and reach out to those in need…we are well below the standard of raising our compassion to the level of at least 50% in this country…let alone, around the globe.

Another year about to pass and leave us with…What? Dare we say…more human chaos? Or can we say maybe a slight improvement over last year?

We must open our eyes and our hearts with the recognition and knowledge that life will never be the same as it was at the beginning of 2019…or 1999…We must move forward and weather the storms that are materializing in our path of humanity with unity and vision toward improving upon the human condition…and include plans to immediately implement change to prevent any further damage to our environment…this is the only way to ensuring a path forward for our moment of now…and future generations…some of which are here now…and fighting to secure a future for themselves and their children…and their children’s children.

We can no longer afford to indulge in the nonsense and nonsense of those who are destroying and making a mockery of our nation…through the ineptitude of what is coming from political parties…both Blue and Red, and in between…leaving the American people as well as Allies of our country, caught in the middle, and viewed as nothing more than expendable, collateral damage… Those factions who swore allegiance to upholding the integrity and the Constitution of the United States of America…

The only terrorists we have to fear at present are those who are in constant battle tearing our country apart…upon Capitol Hill….A true democracy does not use its power to “best” and tear down opposite beliefs of its constituency…it works to find compromise to best preserve and build continuity of unity…strengthened by the body of core beliefs upon which freedom is guaranteed and supported…Instead, we are delivered constantly into the pit of division…and chaos.

At this pace…the only change that will come is a country wrought with such fracture and division…nothing will prevent it from ultimately falling apart….

The only masks that need to come off right here and right now are the masks of denial and delusion.

October is Here…

Now What?

Now we stop pretending…

We stop holding back…

We start caring…

We start rebuilding…

We start unifying…

We take a second look at who we the people let run our country…on all sides of the political spectrum…and honestly take a look at where you are because of it…and where you are headed because of it…don’t take sides…take heart…take objectivity…and stop to honestly evaluate where your life will be in two months….six months…a year…is it acceptable to you? To your families? To a better America? A better world?

Take a good long look…

Look hard…

Life is not ever going to go back to where it was…

The time is here to make a change to guarantee a future…

What Now?

That answer rests with all of us….

August Ends…September Morn….

The ninth month is upon us…tomorrow to be exact…August has been quite a month!

So much tribulation…so much loss of life! Afghanistan…Covid-19 Delta…. Hurricane Ida…Heatwaves…Fires…Floods…

Seems apocalyptic doesn’t it?

What will September bring?

Perhaps a change of energy is in order…Maybe we can ease some of the trials and tribulations by doing what we can to avoid hardships, resistance, and challenge…

Let’s take a moment to really take a look at situations we can influence to bring about less life loss…and give what we can to those less fortunate…knowing that at any given moment…we could be the one behind the eighth ball.

We must not give in and abandon our power to change what we can change…and meet challenge with viable solutions.  A country survives when its people come together to conquer what threatens the masses…whatever the source!

Let us bring in September with hope and encouragement…with positive thoughts…energy and actions. Take a good long look at what can be done to save the babies…the children…and ease burdens in this time of Covid…

Take a step back and examine how we can best serve those who have lost homes and livelihoods as a result of the floods…fires… political rivalry and dissension…

We must rebuild in any way possible…to restore faith in a country that is being ravaged and attacked from every direction…Nature…Man…Within…

Take a deep breath…another 30 days is about to begin…

Give it your best…give it honestly…but give…every ounce of change comes with a heart that is willing to make a difference for the betterment of all…

Are you willing?

A brand new start is coming with the rising sun…

Are you ready?

Autumn comes with September…

We will be reaping what we sow….
