Easter Sunday…New Life…Can We Rise As Well?

Easter Sunday marks the Resurrection…and everlasting life…

New life…Can we rise as well?

We have been given another opportunity to embrace life and living by understanding that we create who we are and what we become. We choose life by connecting with humanity in service and love…We must step away from selfishness and the art of creating sins with the belief that they are inconsequential and limited to the maker…

The gift of salvation is not to be mocked…

When we really understand what has been done on humanity’s behalf by the sacrifice of the Lamb, Jesus…We will gain the gifts…the gifts he possessed…and said that we as well can and will do greater works than he…He and the Almighty believed in humanity more than humanity believes in and of itself…

Communion with one another is our salvation…

We have been entrusted with the role of Good Shepherd…

We have been given the chance to rise and become risen in understanding and passing on the real meaning of Love and its transformational energy…and becoming a practicing witness of the resulting, life- changing miracles.

Humanity depends on its understanding of the meaning of Easter.

No matter how you choose to express your spirituality…or not. It will not change your connectivity to humanity…or how you affect others by the way you choose to live your life. Your actions or non-actions…affect the growth or regression of life everywhere on the planet in all it’s forms.

What we can control of what happens between us on this planet…we have created…the Good…The Bad…The Ugly…and the Horrific…

We can change…

We can rise…

We can accept the Gift…

We can unify our planet…after all…Division is a “people” creation…promoted daily.

Easter Sunday…

New Life…

New Beginnings…

Can we rise as well?

These Easter Sundays are not limitless…

Soon…choices will no longer be an option…

We can rise…

We must believe.

Happy Easter…..

Holy Week…A Time To Remember…

Today marks the beginning of Holy Week for many who still understand the importance of their spirituality…

This week is filled with trials…tribulations…sacrifice…regeneration…salvation…eternal life…

During this most holy of weeks in humanity’s existence…take the time to remember…reflect…and grasp the true meaning of what it really means to sacrifice life for salvation and continuance…

So much has been forgotten by humankind…

What the gift of life really is all about…

What it means to forgive…

What salvation of the soul represents…

Remember…

Remember…

Reflect…

Give thanks…

Welcome humility…

Welcome the grace to begin again…

Reach out to be reached…

Reach out to be that anchor…

Call upon your power of Love…

Through God…and His Messengers…

However you see Him/Her…

Many roads lead to the same destination…

A Savior showed the way…

Remember that Light…bring it to the surface…

The world so needs it now…

Holy Week is here…

Don’t let it pass you by….

Remember….

Love…And Evil…

Love…And Evil…

How ironic is it that Putin and Hitler were both born under astrological signs that are ruled by Venus…and they are the direct opposite of what Venus represents…Love.

What atrocities these individuals so casually commit and have committed…murdering men, women and children…creating non-existent scenarios in order to do so…Putin is and Hitler was the spawn of evil…what is even more horrific are those who carry out the task of murder…and those who support such hideously evil energy posing as “human beings.”

The world watches as history repeats itself in the 21st Century…where humanity is supposed to be civilized and humane…

Here is the ultimate question for those who believe they are sparing the world from a nuclear war…Do you know what Love is?

Is it watching hundreds of thousands of innocent people being forced from their homes and murdered by a tyrant who hides behind a fortress while committing mass genocide under the threat of his nuclear arsenal if anyone steps in to stop him?

He is a master of lies and deception…and he is a pro at playing human weakness…

Putin is afraid to die…All of his posturing should be a clear indication of that…If he wasn’t afraid to die, he would be out on the battlefield with his “foot-soldiers.”

He would not be trying to recreate an imperialistic Russia, if he could not lead it…To stop a tyrant…you must take away what he holds dear: His dream of conquest.

There will never be peace in the world as long as tyrants exist…

We cannot profess to know what love is if we are not willing to lay down our lives for the lives of those who want the same things we want…Peace and Freedom.  Peace and Freedom are not commodities or bargaining chips…they are human rights…to be protected at any price…

Predictability of human nature and the element of fear keeps people paralyzed and enslaved…At this moment, Putin has achieved this road to forge ahead with his diabolical behavior and actions…He must be stopped…if he isn’t…the world will become his oyster….

The pandemic was also a hint to the world…while millions were overcome by the virus…most of the population still survived…

The strategic handling of entering into war…will yield survivors…it is time for boots to the ground… Ukraine is just the beginning… if actions are not taken now to end this horrific and shameful ruse…other countries will fall victims…including those countries who view themselves as “world powers.”

Every hour of everyday…we are…each and every one of us… are being called to our purpose…which is much higher than our quests of our material lives…

The evil of Corruption changes everything it touches…including human perceptions of “Love.”

We are constantly given views into massively corrupt versions of Love…in the form of its opposite…Evil.

Love is far more than the human definitions of “love.”

“An intense feeling of deep affection.”

“A great interest and pleasure in something.”

“Like or enjoy very much.”

“Attraction based on sexual desire: affection based on admiration, benevolence or common interests.”

“The fatherly concern of God for humankind.”

“Brotherly concern for others.”

These are just a few…

The real scope and power of love is still a mystery to humanity…perhaps the closest comprehension of love was demonstrated and spoke of in biblical terms…to lay down your life for the life of another…as a life was given for the salvation of humankind…

There have been those who have…and there are those who do it still…we are viewing it in Ukraine…however, we must do more than just view it…we must become a part of their salvation…their salvation is also our salvation…Peace will not prevail until the evil is laid to rest…

If fear cannot or will not be overcome…Peace and freedom are doomed to be no more….

Love is not an emotion…it is much more powerful than our perception of it…

Venus…Who said it was the planet of Love?

The Romans named it after their Goddess of Love…

After viewing the horrific evil and corruption of two dictatorial tyrants born under a “ruler planet of love and beauty”…it brings the realness of the ageless battle of “good and evil” to the forefront of our human existence…Nothing is as it appears to be…without eyes to see…and ears to hear…humanity becomes nothing more than sheep being led to slaughter.

The “Good Shepherd” is Love and Truth…

If we cannot lay down our lives for love and truth…We are indeed lost…

How many times must history repeat itself to grasp this invaluable lesson of humanity’s salvation and survival?

We cannot wait for “time” to tell….

The time is now….

At Day’s End…

A week ago today (Oscars, 2022) most of us witnessed an act of unprovoked violence on television around the globe, which solicited every known and unknown feeling and response over and under the sun…making everyone take a deeper look into how we respond and how we handle situations that call for one rising above their emotional impulses…Yet, going ever deeper still…where are we on the spiritual scale of evolution?

I came across a passage someone gave me many years ago…and it made me want to share it…because it reminded me of what we really are here on this planet to accomplish…it isn’t about you or me…it’s about “us”…Love…and creating a better tomorrow for everyone…no matter what…Maybe we will understand…Someday soon….

At Day’s End…

Is anybody happier because you passed their way?

Does anyone remember that you spoke to them today?

The day is almost over…and its tolling time is through…

Is there anyone to utter now a kindly word of you?

Can you say tonight…in parting with the day that’s slipping fast…

That you helped a single person of the many that you passed?

Is a single heart rejoicing over what you did or said?

Does the person whose hopes were fading…now with courage look ahead?

Did you waste the day…or lose it…was it well or sorely spent?

Did you leave a trail of kindness…or a scar of discontent?

As you close your eyes in slumber…do you think that God would say…

“You have earned one more tomorrow…by the work you did today”?

Before you close your eyes tonight, ask yourself in earnest, these questions… “Did I make someone’s day better?” “Did I think about anyone else instead of myself?” “Was I thankful for what I have…enough to share with someone who doesn’t?”

Was I an “ass” or a blessing to someone?

At the end of the day we should already know the answer…because we make it a practice to add to someone’s life…not take away from it…

And it becomes second nature to be the best expression of yourself…

Because that wonderful, uplifted feeling you get in your heart…Gives you another tomorrow….and gives the world another revolution around the Sun….

What is The Worst That Could Happen…In Your World?

Take a thought…and think on this…What is the worst that could happen in your world?

When we are viewing the events of the world around us…how do we reflect? Are we really taking in what we witness with humility…or deeper self-absorption as to what we have or do not have? Do we take the time to find happiness and joy in the new beginnings of another day…another opportunity to live…express…create? Or do we dread getting out of bed…obsessing…imagining the worst…building more obstacles to overcome? Are you a chaos maker…or a chaos breaker?

Think about something else…if humankind were eliminated from the face of the earth…would peace prevail?

If the trouble with people are people…Can people change to live and let live without the insecure need to dominate and control? When will universal freedom become important enough to enlist safeguards to ensure that people around the globe can wake up every morning without the fear of being attacked on a personal or civil level?

Ever wonder why God is no respecter of persons?

Look around…and take a good long look and assessment.

Humanity squanders Free-will…

Mankind has proven again and again that they are no respecter of persons…Presently, Ukraine is the sad truth of that…

Racism…Hatred…Standing with Evil…Promoting Lies as Truth…Materialistic and Monetary Greed…Inhumanity disguised as self-preservation…Impunity flaunted at every level by those sworn to protect and serve citizens…everywhere…on every continent…

What is the worst that could happen in your world?

Sleep on it….

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….

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!!!

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….

The Mark of Cain…

The Mark of Cain…

The Mark of Cain is not color…but “soulessness.”

Soulessness is one who is without a soul…

A soul is the spiritual or immaterial part of a human being…or animal, regarded as immortal…

That which is immortal lives forever…never dying or decaying.

That which is immortal…does not take life…or end life…without Divine decree… Even then, Divine Decree is the only Source which reserves that judgment.

Soulless entities disregard all judgments and universal laws…they do not function beyond their own existence…relevancy of anything or any being beyond their scope of existence is of no consequence to them…However, their existence and deeds are judged…and they are held accountable according to Divine Decree and Judgment…Be it on Earth…or in Heaven.

Cain was soulless…His first thought was not to understand why God favored Abel’s offerings over his own…but to eliminate his brother whom he viewed as an “adversary.”  Where was the brotherly love? Where was the reasoning? Better still, where was the acceptance of God’s Choice?

Cain used his choice of “free-will” to murder his brother.  He embraced envy…jealousy…and hatred…and used these elements as encouragement to take his brother’s life, without reflection.

In our recount of history and our own experiences in everyday living, we have seen more than an overabundance of the actions and results of the soulless living among us…and the havoc they wreak in the destruction and taking of lives to enrich their own existences without conscience.  What is worst still are those who condone…keep silent…or turn away from the indiscriminate acts of these soulless creatures calling themselves “human beings.”

The mark that was placed upon Cain was not a color of skin…but a hollowness in his chest…where a soul should have been…the emptiness dwells in the eyes of the individual so afflicted…it directs their behavior…their thoughts…their words…their actions…their deeds…their entire being reflects the dead pool of their emptiness…a vacuous void of nothingness.

Why did God let Cain live?

As a reminder of what we can become should we choose to forfeit…sell or offer up our souls to Evil….

The cultivation of Love is the mission of Humanity…

Becoming Love…is the Journey of Enlightenment…

Soul Salvation is a choice…

Unless the choice… is the Mark of Cain….
