Everyday In America…Today Another Step Towards Salvation…

Everyday in America, we are faced with some new challenge that we have awakened due to our own self-examination…and we will continue to encounter these challenges as long as we live our lives and function in a great divide…

This journey of salvation is necessary to change the hearts of many and strengthen the hearts of those familiar with the path our entire nation must now take part in…or perish.

Today, we reached a pinnacle in the quest of salvaging our humanity, with a verdict that announced to the world that we can reach into our hearts…and uphold truth…honor our principles and values in acknowledging that everyone, regardless of color, are entitled to life…liberty…and the pursuit of happiness. God honored life in creating it…we can honor life by preserving it…it is our duty to be shepherds of life…not to discriminate and decide who has the right to live and breathe…and who doesn’t.

I experienced a sense of peace in my tears while hearing the verdict in this trial of Derek Chauvin and his taking of George Floyd’s life…for his (George’s) family…and all the other families touched and torn apart by racism so blatantly practiced by some in law enforcement uniforms… who constantly breach their oaths with impunity to “protect and serve”…as a way to exterminate and eliminate those who do not look like them… As was the case with my brother…and so many countless others through the years…and still continuing… because of the color of their skin…and their justice was not an option to ever be considered…until now.

We still have a long, long road to travel in ultimately understanding what it means to be a part of humanity and stand up for human lives…not colors…and understand that diversity is God’s gift of love to us…He sees the beauty and purpose in every human being… Can’t we?

Today’s verdict gave us a flame in the torch that we must carry forward…on our journey to salvation as a nation…and as people who belong to the human race…striving to preserve our humanity….

We….are the reflection of our salvation….

We are the flames that ignite…and light…the torch we carry forward today…

Let us use it…to light our way into every tomorrow…..

HE IS RISEN…It’s a Brand New Day…For Humanity…

Easter Sunday is a testament to humanity…A reminder that your ticket to Heaven has been bought and paid for…through the Blood of Jesus…

Easter Sunday is the greatest testament to Love that will ever come to be…

We just need to go within…to recognize the sacrifice given…for the Love of Humanity.

Yesterday morning…I awoke to words in my heart…in gracious thanks and testament to my spiritual understanding of this great and powerful love that was given for us…and to us…Yet, we exercise such limited understanding of its meaning…and power.

There is a tremendous healing and restorative power in love…like a mustard seed…just a little love goes a long way.

Easter isn’t about dyeing eggs…luscious baskets filled with candy and little trinkets…parading around in “Easter best” or bonnets…

The meaning of Easter is the miracle of Love and the Resurrection of throwing off the flesh (the material)…and recognizing the power of the Spirit (Love) and what can be accomplished in selfless and unconditional giving of this essence and most powerful… living energy.

Christ was consistent and unwavering in His acts of Love…even with those who were perceived as His enemies…

“Forgiveness” is a most significant key in understanding the power and magic of Love…

Christ came to teach us…to show us by example…the incredible and unbelievable power…of Love.

He believed that once we understood Love…we would do greater works than He…

He Is Risen….

Can we rise?

A soul must be willing to rise…

He can and did…lead us there…Can we rise?

Let your heart guide you…

Here are the words that came to me, yesterday-morn…

IN THE NAME OF JESUS

He Said…

Come sit upon my tomb

Open up your heart…make room…

This sacrifice I make

Is your choice for commitment to take…

A vow of Love…Love…Love…

Handed down from above…(a)bove…(a)bove…

So that you can be Free…Free…Free…

Throughout E-ter-ni-ty!

He laid down His life, you see…

Given up for you and me

Stand up and praise His Name…

Your life won’t be the same…

Shout it out with joy…Exclaim

Go ahead…just say His Name…

Jesus…Jesus…JESUS!

He rescued me!

He saved my soul…blessed are we!

Hallelujah, Hallelujah!

Let the truth be told…
He rescued me!!!

He took me from the dark into the Light

He showed me how to win the fight…

By knowing wrong from right…

He set me Free…Free…Free!

Throughout E-ter-ni-ty!

Laid down His life…you see

Gave it up for you and me…

Stand up and praise His Name…

Never ever gonna be the same…Same…SAME!

Glo-ry!!!

Laid down His life…

In the Name of Jesus…

In the Name of Jesus…

In the Name of Jesus…

A-men….

We can rise…if we believe…

It isn’t about following a religion…

It’s about Believing…

The “Knowing” that lives in our hearts…tells us this is truth…even if we refuse to believe.

We are here…In The Name of Love…

Christ gave up His life…In The Name of Love…

Christ is Risen…

Resurrected…In The Name of Love…

BELIEVE…

Easter Sunday is the culmination of events…resulting in the Greatest Love of All…

Yes…HE HAS RISEN…

And paved a Way…for us to follow.

Happy Easter…Happy Resurrection Day…

You are most Loved…..

Good Friday…

Today is the day observed as the day of the Crucifixion…Good Friday.

The day was reflective of the occasion….It was cold…overcast…winds whipping around corners…a snowflake or two…

One could almost say the weather was an indication of the somber event which took place a few millennium ago.

While marking the end of Lent for Christians and the 40-day fast…Christ was arrested and executed…giving his life out of love for humanity…remembered as Holy Friday…or God’s Friday….giving way to “Good Friday.”

Love…All in the name of Love…

This sacrifice for the sake of the sins of humanity…as well as His love for human kind…should give us all the more reason to love one another…

If Christ suffered and died for the sins of the world…can’t we embrace and practice the simplicity of Love?

The signs are everywhere…beginning with Good Friday….

To everything…there is a time and a season….

This is the time and season to reacquaint yourself with Love…..

All of Heaven is watching…

Let not this great sacrifice go unnoticed…

Reaffirm with God’s Friday…

Remember…and Be Blessed!

What If…

What if…

Every act of human kindness…and every act committed against humanity…determined the fate of our existence continuing on this planet…along with the continuity of life on Earth…

Would that change your heart?

Would kindness and charity always be at the top of your “to do” list?

What if…

Every negative act…took away 24 hours of Earth’s rotation around the Sun…lessening and shortening all life expectation? With consciously committed negative acts, increasing this phenomenon…by the power of 100?

What if…

You could reduce 10 acts of negativity by standing up to racial injustice…and ensure the world would turn another revolution…would you?

What if…

The meaning of life isn’t complexity…but simplicity…and the simplicity…is simply learning how to love one another…without conditions…without bias?

What if…

Thoughts were things…and things were thoughts…and we’ve manifested harmful thoughts and things into the world…Can we change our thoughts and things into that which is more beneficial and positive to humanity and our planet?

What if…

You really were the key to changing America and the world by always standing up to racial injustice?

What if…

You could erase negativity by your input of positivity…at every given opportunity?

What if…

Practicing simplicity opened the door to understanding that love is unconditional and unbiased?

What if…

In recognizing that thoughts are things…and things are thoughts…and consciously channeling only the good would bring about positive and beneficial manifestations which would elevate humanity and our planet to a reachable state of peace?

Take away the “what if…” from everything said…

It’s all true….

We must want to embrace the good and the positive…more than those who embrace and magnify negativity.

What if…

You gave yourself over to Love?

Let go…let Love…

And witness the transformation…

What if…

You like it?

Spiritual Food…What Is Your Fuel?

Spiritual Food…

What fuels your spirit?

What is your breakfast…lunch…and dinner of spirit?

What fuel or food do you take in which feeds your spirit?

We know what fuels the body…

We know we must eat to live…not live to eat…yet so many of us live to eat.

We are like kids in a candy store!  The “foodies” among us are generally gourmets in our own right…and we live to eat…despite the fact that what sends our taste buds to the moon we delight in the journey to the point of overdoing it in consumption because it tastes so good!  We know we shouldn’t…we know that for some of us our weight will “wear” what we eat…and for some of us we may suffer health issues…however, that piece of chocolate cake, or that extra helping of fries gives us that ”devil-may-care” attitude and we convince ourselves that we’ll deal with the physical consequences of our gastronomic indulgences…later.

So what consequences result in regards to spiritually overindulging in what we “feed” our spirits?

The greatest examples of spiritual consumption of fuels and foods that work contrary to the spirit is what we’ve witnessed in the last four years in the form of Trump…his GOP…his supporters…

They chose to feed their spirits Lies instead of Truth…

Hatred… instead of Love…

Violence… instead of Peace…

Suppression… instead of Freedom…

Division… instead of Unity…

Cruelty… instead of Compassion…

Selfishness… instead of Humanitarianism…

Anger… instead of Levelheadedness…

Delusion… instead of Reality…

Absolute Power… instead of Democracy…

Eventually, the continual ingesting of these foods and fuels to the spirit will result in the demise of the spirit… Nothing good can ever emerge from evil… and only good…can deliver from evil….

Should we find ourselves walking down the path of evil…by feeding our spirits with foods and fuels that are not in sync with nourishing, lifting and enlightening our spirits to the highest level of humility, humanity…and love…we must step back and observe what is going on around us…and within us…and ask, “Am I contributing to my highest good which connects to all those around me…including the well-being of the planet? Or am I connecting with the darkest abominations of my spirit…and casting those monstrosities upon the world in destruction of humanity and the planet?”

Observe the chaos in our country and the world…take note of the “plagues” in the form of a mutating virus which gives minuscule signs of hope…only to take away that hope in delivering perhaps more devastation upon humanity…because there are those who choose to feed their spirits rebellion and defiance…rather than comply to social distancing and mask wearing to save themselves…and their fellow humans…

Look at the changing weather patterns due to the mistreatment of our planet through the quest for material gain in destroying the environment…and our atmosphere…. by drilling and sucking the life out of the planet…and releasing gases into the air that we breathe…and eating the foods and fueling the mind with denial…and “natural occurrences” rhetoric that takes place every 100 years or so…

After centuries and decades of ingesting and releasing spiritual pollutants…we are witnessing the results.

We must change what we feed and how we fuel our spirits…

Those of us who understand and are working on maintaining our diets of spiritual intake with positive and enlightening energies must continue to forge forward in our practices… We must encourage those who are working to get on and stay on the path of nourishing their spirits and the spirits of others with “good and healthy” foods and fuels…and increase in number and voice to counteract those who choose to continue to overindulge in satiating their bottomless, spiritual appetites for corruptible and egregious foods and fuels.

We will prevail if we stay the course…beginning with addressing the spiritual fallout that has left our country in a state of disarray and chaos…

Compromise only leads to eventual backsliding and succumbing to temptation…

Lead us not into temptation…

Take our daily bread…

Deliver us from evil…

By the way of the Spirit…

Manna from Heaven…

And our spiritual food and fuel…

Of Truth…..

We cannot afford to wait until later…

We cannot put off tomorrow…what can be done today…right now…

Every moment that goes by…

Our spirits hunger…

There are no substitutions…

Take in what is good…

And feed your spirit.

The Two Most Prized Gifts This Christmas Day…

The two most prized gifts this Christmas Day are…the gift of Love…and the gift of Life…

The Universe has given humanity the task of extending life through love…by understanding and utilizing the meaning of “unconditional.”

The true meaning of Christmas which began to shift in the mid-19th century is “To give up one’s very self—to think of others…how to bring the greatest happiness to others.”

This Christmas we were tasked with choosing to adhere to the standing protocol involving social distancing and mask wearing to curb and slow down the spread of a raging plague classified as Covid-19, which came into being near the beginning of the year.  Many ignored protocol…and the virus gathered uncontrollable momentum and has now mutated to a strain that is faster in its ability to infect, increasing its reach into groups, such as people under the age of 30 and young children, nearly tripling its rate of mortality overall.

We have the ability to give life…by caring about the lives of others…by practicing social precautions known to arrest the spread of this deadly disease.  That includes traveling…

Can we care about others more than we care about ourselves?  The sacrifice that brought forth Christmas Day was the birth of a savior…who would one day sacrifice his life…to save humanity from the ravages of sin…whereby granting everlasting life by giving up his own self…by thinking of others.

The excuses made to ignore the simplest of short-term remedies in order to get back to normalcy are weak and selfish and without regard to others and their right to life.

There will be mothers and fathers…grandmothers and grandfathers…sisters and brothers…children and grandchildren…aunts and uncles…cousins and friends…who will lose their lives, because someone and many… felt they could ignore protocols, and live life as if it were normal…in the Age of Covid-19.

So many asymptomatic individuals are passing the virus onto others… Think of the thousands who could be spared and saved from this avenue of transmission if everyone wore a mask?

If doctors and nurses and other healthcare personnel, who are willing to put your life first…before their lives… and many have given up their lives in treating and caring for those stricken with this horrific disease…can’t we also love life enough to give the gift of life to another?

Out of love, we can give the gift of life through love…we can give the gift of life through helping those who are less fortunate in making it through this devastating trial of life altering circumstances…we must remember that any one of us can be touched by the tragedy of the Coronavirus…any one of us can be touched by the threat of eviction…any one of us has and can lose our livelihoods…but in the midst of it all…we must remember our humanity.  We have…and always will be…our brother and sister’s keeper…no matter what race…culture…creed…or any form of diversity…our purpose is to realize the connectivity we share with every living creature…the breath of life does not discriminate…it is the life of life… Un-conditionality must bring us to this realization…Love…must bring us to this realization….

This Christmas Day…out of darkness…light can come forth…through each and every one of us…The power of humanity’s longevity…is in your hands…and mine.

No act is too small…given out of love…it becomes a great miracle to one in need…

You are the first day of someone’s life…

Practice social distancing…

Wear a mask…

Please restrict your travel for just a little longer…

Donate a can of food to your local food bank…

Give a dollar or two to a charity that you know will help someone who has lost their home…or will help them save it.

You are chosen to save a life…by giving life…

Your importance isn’t measured by what you have or how much you can give…

You are important because you are the continuity of life…through your gift of love…through your gift of sharing the breath of life…

You are the giver of Christmas miracles…

The importance of Christmas…is you.

This Christmas Day, the two most prized gifts are the gift of Love…and the gift of Life…and you possess them both…

You have the free-will to exercise the giving…

Will you?

The Universe is watching….

Godspeed you the courage to honor your gifts…

Merry Christmas…2020.

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….

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….

Reflections of The Way Life Used To Be…

Tomorrow is Labor Day here in the States… The last weekend of summer as we know it…

It is usually a signal for school starting up again…one last hoorah at the beaches…one last big barbeque…family and friends gathering to say farewell to Summer…hello to the coming of Fall…and all that it brings…

Reflections of the way life used to be…
We must wake up to the reality of a new way of life…
We must be aware that life will never be as it was again…
We must change with the realities that we now face…
Now…more than ever…we must focus on our future…
We must look beyond the past…into the present…and what it means for our future…

Masks…the new norm…Consideration for one another…Respectful of space…respectful of distance…care for the health and well-being of others…as well as ourselves…


The center of our universe…our personal worlds, have forever changed…the more we try to make it about us…and our comforts…the further we will get from making the changes that will bring in a new life for all of us…
Don’t be afraid to change…The more resistance given…the more forced it will be…

Acceptance and surrender…
We all have the opportunity to make a huge contribution to the betterment of change…
Let us create a far better future than awaits us…if we resist.

Reflections of the way life used to be…let them be…
Be mindful…be safe…create new and exciting chapters in these last days of Summer…

Greet Labor Day with new ideas…New job creations…a new you…
a new life…a better tomorrow….

Reflect on your contributions to a ‘new’ humanity…
A new way of living…
A new way of giving…

Oh Happy Day!
Labor for Love….
Reflections of the life to be…for everyone.

Peace….Courage…Much Love…
Our quest is just beginning…..

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….
