Don’t Become Dismayed…Disheartened…Disenchanted…Depressed…

Don’t become dismayed…disheartened…disenchanted…or depressed with what is going on around you in the world…

Let it energize…empower…engage…enlighten…and move you to be determined to change and uplift your immediate surroundings and create a roadmap on your quest, widening your horizons into the world around you…

The only way to have a world that will reflect the beauty of its diversity…to enjoy the bounty of its abundance…and to feel peace and freedom from the depths of the soul outward…is to be it…by demonstration.

The quality of life that every human being desires…will only be…when humanity becomes the best of itself…and it begins with you…and the next person…and the next person…and so on…and so on…

We cannot run or hide from reality…or the realities of life that present themselves to us in the course of our everyday living…While humanity has introduced, imposed and practices restrictive ways of life to suppress at will, certain members of the human family…it is not the rule…and it is not the way.

The realities that are put forth on this blog are meant to remind us of the realities of our lives…the realities of what goes on around us…and the reality that we can make a difference…and we can bring about change.  There will always be challenges…there will always be obstacles…and our challenges and obstacles most often come from those closest to us…

Our loyalties must always stand with the betterment of humankind…in doing what is right…whenever choices are made against what is right…just…in truth…with love and in love…obstacles and challenges come into play and cast long and lasting shadows on progress and enlightenment…negating and damaging the positive strides made…

Decide who you really are…

Decide who controls your spirit…

Decide if you are a light…or a caster of shadows and destruction…

How will you touch the world?

How will you leave it?

Everyone leaves a footprint…

Every life is significant to its contribution…

In the proper circumstances…no participation can be significant in saving a life…or changing a life…think about that…

Don’t become dismayed…disheartened…disenchanted…depressed…

Become the change that brings light into the world…

Once you understand Love…

That understanding shines your light on everything…everyone…

Everywhere…

For all time….

Be Strong, Sistah…Be Strong….

From 1920 to 2020…Women have been fighting for and demanding their place in the world… and the respect they so rightfully deserve in contributions to the world…their communities…their families…and their own lives… Yet, it continues to be a constant struggle, a century later, for those of the opposite sex to recognize and acknowledge fully…the feminine energy, and how it continues to build the world…and heal the destruction and devastation, usually initiated and cultivated by her masculine counterpart…

To all of the women of the world, My Sistahs… I dedicate this writing…Always remember who you are…despite what others want to make you out to be…Remember your pains and your struggles…your wants and your needs…your strong and everlasting spirit…and your drive to be true to yourself…

We nurture the Universe…and we must remember to nurture ourselves…especially moving into 2021…

We have much to do…So let’s do it with our feminine force…and our quiet courage…and our undying spirits…when we’re going through it…when we’re asking ourselves why…just remember…it’s okay to cry…to retreat for a moment to gather your bearings…just come back with a vengeance to succeed…and…Be Strong, Sistah…Be Strong….

Be Strong, Sistah…Be Strong…

How long have I heard those words?

How Long?

Be Strong, Sistah…Be Strong…

Hey, I’m only human…

I have feelings too… Just like you…

I want to be held…comforted…coddled…appreciated…intoxicated

With love and affection…and a strong erection…

Performing erotic perfection…in homage to all those times…

That I lived in doubt…struggled without…wondered why…

Hosted many a cry…released a millennium of sighs…

Waded through countless “goodbyes”…cutting ties…embracing lies…

Be Strong, Sistah…Be Strong…

Will somebody please tell me?

What did I do wrong?

Be Strong , Sistah…Be Strong…

I was born a woman…

Society’s crime…in passage of time…I nurture…

I protect…I deflect…I assure…I procure…I endure…

Your pain…their pain…my pain… I secure…

Your gain…their gain…my strain…

I can take it…I can fake it…bles-sed be…

Be Strong, Sistah…Be Strong…

It hurts so much, I could die…Can’t they see?

Are they blind…maybe? What’s happened to me?

She’s alright…she’ll get over it! She can take it!

She don’t fake it!!!

Pile it on…she won’t break…she won’t shake! She won’t quake!

Feelings of steel…a heart that won’t peel…Looks that could kill! Me, erratic?

There’s no static! I’m no tease…I’m here to please…and please…and please…

And PLEASE, everybody freeze!

I hear it coming…my mind is humming…the tune is numbing…

That same old song!

Be Strong Sistah! Be Strong…

Into the fire! To serve is your desire…there’s no position higher…

My woman…My lady…My wife…My boo…My girl…My gal…My mommy…

My “homey”…My dog…My cunt…My slut…My “ho”…My bitch…My shit…My ass…

My stuff…My fluff…My hole and tits…My friend-with-benefits…My female…

My Sistah…My Sistah…My Sistah!!!

Be Strong…Be Strong…Belong…Belong…Belong…to You….

Be true…Be true…Be true…to You….

Be Strong, My Sistah…BE STRONG!!!!

In body, mind and spirit, be forever true to yourselves…When we are true to ourselves…We transform…not only ourselves…but the world.

Messages…

Messages…

Sometimes without consciously knowing why…we are sent messages…messages to be shared that can change one life…or change millions…sometimes we receive messages that convey to us that there are forces at work that we just can’t conceive really as existing…until we are sent a message…

On July 1, 1991, I was in Germany…I laid down to sleep that night…I wrote a poem the next day…recalling the dream I had that night…I would like to share it with you now…

“Light of Love”

Another Light went out today…

The Lord, He called him home to stay…

This Light was truly special, you see…

He came in Love, and gave endlessly.

Born an only child with a negative start

He turned his life around with his lightness of heart

He learned to laugh by taking it all in stride…

And won the hearts of millions…

By letting them look inside…

He used his humanness to tell poignant stories…

Tales of Prejudice…Courage…and ultimate glories…

He cherished the union of family…

Extending this warmth to include you and me.

This beautiful spirit will be missed by all…

His courage and strength, will forever stand tall.

I fell asleep last night, not knowing his fate…

And we laughed and chatted…walking towards Heaven’s Gate…

He spoke of Dan Blocker with mischief and fondness in his eyes…

Recalling many pranks…and friendship ties…

After strolling memory lane, Victor French came by…

I told Victor would take him the rest of his way…

I could not take him…Right here, I had to stay…

As they walked the Highway to Heaven…I watched…and cried…

It was then I knew…Michael Landon had died…

The morning of July 2, 1991, I was actually in the car with some friends, on the way to Berlin, when the international news came on, and the announcer said, “Michael Landon lost his battle with cancer last night…He was 54…”I felt a cold chill go down my back… I remembered thinking all the while we were together, “What’s going on here? Why am I walking with Michael Landon? Why is he chattering so, and why are we walking through this neighborhood, with him pointing out Dan Blocker’s home, and telling me these stories?” Perhaps it was the Universe giving me a bird’s eye view into life after death…that nothing dies…just changes.

Here we are again…back to “changes.”

Messages are powerful streams of consciousness…opening our vision to the vastness of what IS…

Nothing is beyond the realm of possibility… We must learn to see that…and believe it.

We can change our world…We can create a “better.”  A better that extends itself to everyone…from beginnings initiated by you…and me…

What messages have you received that you can transfer to yourself and the world, to create and make a change for…”The Better?”

What gem has the Universe sent your way that can make a world of difference? Take a moment and reflect what has passed before you today…something that you may have missed…due to your indifference…or self-absorption…something, that would make a difference in one life…or millions.

Play back the tape in your mind…there is a message or two…that went over your head…where if you were to recall the events of your day…it would be right there…waiting…like an open book…offering its wisdom…knowledge…and healing…

Welcome the messages…you were chosen as the vessel of “Messenger.”

Release the message…become the “Deliverer” to one life…or…millions…

Sleep on it….

Let’s Talk About It…

George Floyd…Let’s Talk About It… What must we do…to expunge the hatred ingrained against a people…because of the color of their skin?!  The ignorance…the racism…the hatred…it is evil in it’s purest form.  There can not be love, where hatred dwells…NEVER!!!

Anyone….ANYONE…who claims to have love…and thinks they are giving love…and that love only extends itself to someone who looks like you only…YOU HAVE NO IDEA WHAT LOVE IS…OR WHAT KIND OF LOVE YOU ARE GIVING!!! “Segregated love” is not love…it is another form of “HATRED.”

George Floyd was given life and a purpose… and a mere “idea” of a person…along with a few other persons, who thought bigger of themselves than they really are…took away George’s freedom…and his right to live.  They looked upon M.R. Floyd…as less than human.

No one…who has such little regard for human life…is nowhere near…human.

I was going through some papers today…and I came across some of my mother’s letters to the ACLU…about my brother… Stanley…my best friend… who was murdered in January, 1979, by police in Louisiana… while visiting relatives…he was 25 years…he was shot twice in the back…unarmed…running on the levee…He was Black…

Mom’s letters where heart rending…I cried reading them…remembering her pain…watching her cry….when she didn’t know I was watching…grieving the loss of her son…her child…callously cut down…just because…I remembered how I felt…my anger…my resentment…my helplessness…Returning…like a never-ending story…

Let’s Talk About It… Every time a Black man is murdered…by police…or those who believe they are “privileged” and above recourse…because they aren’t of color…they are murdering my brother…again…my sister…my father…my mother…my family…my human family…

Because I Am…I  identify…I am Categorized…I am Labeled…I am Classified…I am Stereotyped…I am Stigmatized…I am Trivialized…I am Marginalized…I am deemed less than human…because I am Colorized…

My heart hurts anytime anyone is deprived of their life…liberties…and pursuit of happiness…because they are considered “different.” Diversity is beautiful…and necessary to God’s Creation of this astounding Universe!

The Hatred that lives and grows on this planet…is unique only to this planet…unique only to the human life that dwells here…Enlightenment will never fully be realized by all…until Love is understood…and mastered… Taking lives and limiting freedoms because someone doesn’t look like you…will not insure God’s Love…or give passage to your idea of “Heaven.”

Yes, Let’s Talk About It…While we’re talking about it…let’s do something about it.  Take a good look around you…this hatred…this “privilege” this delusion and grand illusion is destroying humanity…our planet…and any chance of human evolution toward enlightenment… Change the world? Change your hearts…and if you’ve lost your soul…it’s never too late to regain it through acts of Forgiveness…which is a wonderful road to Love…

Let’s Talk About that….

Stop the killing…Stop the hatred…Learn the true meaning of Love…or be forever lost…in darkness….

Let’s Talk About It…NOW.

As March Goes Out…April Comes In…Let Us Not Be Fools…

March came in humbling humanity in the wake of a virus which is now a pandemic… As April Comes In…Let Us Not Be Fools…

We must continue to practice social distancing and disinfecting and taking care of one another while taking care, ourselves…We cannot act as if we are invincible or untouchable…we must always be mindful and careful…with friends…family, and if you’re considered an essential worker…with your co-workers.  We are all family now.  If we become each other’s Guardian Angels…we will make it through to the other side of this devastation stronger and better spiritually…mentally…emotionally…and physically connected and bonded as it was in the beginning…reactivating the love which dwells within all of us…

I want to share part of an article I read today from the New York Times…

Afghans meet coronavirus with kindness, waiving rent and distributing food and masks to their neighbors.

In a moment of need, ordinary Afghans have stepped up to generously share the little that they have, easing the pain of an impending health crisis that is turning into another test of survival for a country where life has been a daily fight for decades.

Across Afghanistan, many landlords have waived rent, in some cases indefinitely until the virus threat recedes. Tailors have handed out thousands of homemade face masks. Youth groups and athletes have delivered food to hospitals and families in destitution. Wedding halls and private schools have volunteered to be turned into hospitals.

The owner of a marketplace of 40 shops forgave rent not just for the month, but for as long as the epidemic continues. The governor of one province set up an emergency Covid-19 fund and in just one day received contributions of more than $100,000.

Mohamed Kareem Tawain, an 80-year-old dentist in Herat, the center of the outbreak in Afghanistan, said that he had experienced multiple wars and droughts in his lifetime, and that Afghanistan was better prepared to deal with the virus than those past scourges.

“I am not too terrified,” he said. “Although it is difficult times, if we join hands, God willing, the corona problem will pass.”

What beautiful and incredibly generous gestures being given by those living in a country ravaged by so much destruction!!!  Think of what could be done here in America!!!  Student loans could be forgiven…how many landlords could waive rents here?!  What about marketplaces, Malls?  How many could forgive shops and small businesses renting storefronts and mall spaces?  This pandemic is taking lives as if there may be no tomorrow…Stepping up to ease the fear of the masses in any and all ways possible… would relieve the panic of destitution and economic loss to those who live from paycheck to paycheck…fixed incomes and temporary employment situations.  No one should have to worry about healthcare and medicine…especially during this time…

We can always do more… And our capacity to do good…and to do what is right…will be put to the test…in the coming months… more than ever before in this life! Let us not be April Fools…

Love thy neighbors and embrace our world families…We are neighbors…and we are family…this realization is given to us…whether we want it to be…or not…whether we like it…or not…yet… there is a great joy in belonging to one another…reaching out to one another…and yes, loving one another!

What greater works are these, than Selflessness and Love?

We have been directed to be one another’s Salvation…We have been appointed as one another’s Comforter…

Let us not be Fools in accepting this mission of serving one another…

Let us follow those stepping up in humility…

And Love….
