In The Midst of Nation and World Chaos…Live Your Best Life With Honesty…Reality…Truth…and Love…

To live your best life…you must love your life…and appreciate where you are…in it.

Spending your life chasing after “perfection” will leave you lost and alone…

Life is meant to be lived…not imagined or idealized…

Jump in and taste everything and refine your tastes as you journey through this maze of constant twists and turns…exploring…experiencing…appreciating…while allowing everything to come together…and age…as fine wine… Let it roll off your palate in reflection and contentment. To wait, is to stagnate and lose opportunities of real growth and discoveries that will guide you along your path of self and worldly realizations….

I once knew a woman whose dream it was to have a husband and a child… This became her passion and obsession. She was extremely creative and many opportunities came her way to express and realize her wonderful gifts…She could not fully realize the depth of her gifts which would have yielded her a tremendous financial foundation for her heart’s desire…

She had relationships which never led to a husband…she had no idea that life was preparing her…for her…to love her life as it was unfolding and to live her best life in the opportunities that were presenting themselves to her… A moment came when she found herself with child…the moment of a husband had not presented itself with the man who was the father…she did not tell him because his feelings for her were not as strong as she hoped they would be…to him it was casual…to her it was more…so she allowed it to stay casual…until she found out she was pregnant…

She sought me out to help her make a decision of which she already knew the answer…

Life presented her with a part of her heart’s desire…she sought out permission to have it…instead of living it…I had moved away. When she could not find me to give her permission to her heart’s desire…she chose not to fulfill it…because she wanted the husband as well…

Our paths crossed again, many years later. She told me the story. She was childless and had never married…and beyond her child bearing years. She asked me what would I have told her…I smiled and said, “You always wanted a child…I would have told you to have the baby…to follow your heart. You did not need me to tell you that…A child…was what you always wanted.” She agreed, and added, “I wanted to have a husband as well…I wasn’t sure about having a baby without a husband.”

The world we live in doesn’t always deliver everything in one neat little package…heart’s desires are not presented at the same moment in time…the husband would have arrived when he was meant to…or not. It’s all about living the best life…loving your life, always…while going along with the flow of it…

We create the “perfection” of our lives…and in our lives…by first acknowledging the definition of “perfection.” It is the condition, state or quality of being free or as free as possible from all flaws or defects. It is the “or free as possible” that presents “imperfection.”

Life is…imperfection…flawed…blemished…features undesirable…incomplete…faulty…and we take those lemons and make lemonade…or lemon cake! With the impermanence comes I-M-possible!

In the midst of the chaos in our nation and the world…we must not lose sight of the meaning of our lives…who we are…what we can make of our lives despite what’s going on around us…and live for you by living…make the best flow from every moment that presents itself…

With Honesty…Reality…Truth…and…Love.

Live…

Life is too, too short to waste moments…opportunities…or to let it just pass you by…

Don’t ignore your heart’s desires…no matter how they come to you…

Be true to yourself…

You don’t need anyone’s permission to be and to live the best part of yourself…

Don’t give in to the chaos…without…or within…

Give in to life…

Shine your Light…

Thrive in it…

And share it with the world….

Paving The Road To The Future…

What we’ve done…Where we’ve been…Where we go from there…will determine the road America paves to the future…

Everyday in America, events of significance take place that will shape the destiny of that road. There are going to be many choices on what materials will be used to build this road…and what we choose to support in policy…to make a road that is a lasting infrastructure into the future.

What takes place in our country on a daily basis isn’t always pleasant or positive…However, it must be addressed because these episodes do affect the lives of every citizen in some shape, form or fashion…Most people will disagree because they believe that they are living in their own carved out corner of the universe, functioning in their own piece of the country within the lives they have created for themselves, and what they say, do and decide is what goes because they are in their own space….

If they remained in their own universe…in their own piece of the country which houses their city or town, inside their own abode, without any human contact outside their dwelling…they still would not be the island that they think isolates them from affecting others with their actions, words and deeds. So, it is important that we are mindful of everything going on around us that can and will affect the growth or demise of our nation…

It is important to know the current events which are going on around us and affecting lives everyday…in America, as well as the world. It is our duty to ensure that the roads we pave are better than the last…and that they are built solidly to lead to better destinations than the roads that have thus been paved, becoming America’s road map to History…

Those roads appear to be leading back to some dark and horrific events in America’s past, and we all have the pen and pencils to construct sound and unfettered blueprints for roadways that will replace the weak and unstable roads that are still being used to plod a way into the future…

We have the opportunities to choose how our country will move forward and what role it will play in influencing the world to become the better vision in embracing and uplifting humanity…by observing, reflecting and acting upon the negatives taking place in our own country…with the complete understanding that there are no “untouchables” in humankind…every action affects innocence somewhere…not only those who are innocent in nature…but those who become victims through unsavory thoughts, words and deeds…from war to gender inequality…and every act of inhumanity being committed around the globe…

In a small way what is written on this blog is written to “ignite your light within” to stir your power without…to be a part of the solution…by becoming aware…and becoming better…in your life…and your purpose…

What the world is…is because of its inhabitants…What America is…is because of its inhabitants…taking part…or not taking part in what it now has become…whatever your view…participation…non-participation…opinions…or no opinions…you are shaping America and the world….

If we want a future…we must pave better…stronger…positive and lasting roads, paying heed to their foundations and infrastructures…and who we allow to build them…

It is time to take up your pencils and pens…your voices…your positive instruments of change which you carry within the heart of you…and make your contribution(s) of betterment to a country and a world calling out to “architects” to pave roads to an ailing humanity and planet…it’s never too late to use your light…to create a future….

Every contribution which uplifts…is a brick in the road…

A simple smile has been known to build roads to joy…

A wonderful beginning….

Pave the road.

Resting On Laurels Is Not An Option…

As we step into our second day of 2022 know this: If we rest on our laurels, we’ll never continue forward in creating the world we want to reflect the good we give or the best of ourselves… Without our continued best and forward momentum our world will continue to be a “mixed bag of tricks.”

Continue to build on your best…if you must rest…pass the baton to those who you can count on to better your best…you’ve supplied the stability that they can continue to expand upon and carry to the next level of triumph…and if they need to rest, they can pass the brick and mortar to the next builder…

Life is an endless journey of experience and growth…lessons and accomplishments to give lift to the wings of humanity. Don’t neglect your gifts…use them to create a better world…after all…you are an essential part of this stairway that leads to a future for those we will eventually leave behind as caretakers…

Every day of 2022 will lead to a significant achievement…if we are vigilant…and our hearts are truly in the right place…

The only promise or resolution that you cannot break…is to be true to yourself and your dreams…without infringing upon the lives and dreams of others…making sure that your best…builds a bridge that all can cross with humility…compassion…and hope for a bright future.

Happy day two…into 2022…..

The Dawn of 2022…

January 1, 2022 is here…

A new day…another year…to make sure there will be a 22nd Century for humankind and our planet…

Will we forge a year that will build a path of insurance to that milestone?

We have been given a view into what we must change in ourselves in order to have continuity…of humankind and our planet. Now is the crucial moment in time that we must take heed and act to the best of our abilities and ourselves to give the next generation the tools to continue life with purpose and humility…

Time is no longer on our side. We cannot continue to wallow in the useless and mundane ways of living…materialism…false superiority…self-centered behaviors…egocentric beliefs…

We must stop believing in the preservation of “life” which does not include every human being…and every living entity which resides upon this planet. If we do not, we must face the dismal reality that the act that took place over 2000 years ago has no meaning…and served no purpose…and love…there is no love…only a superficial reflection of human perception…and demonstration.

But those who have ears to hear and eyes to see…know better…we were given salvation…and we understand the power of Love…and it’s endless miracles…magic…and transformative energies…

For those of us who have been given and extended the gift of life to see this first day of 2022…let us continue to be purposeful in our collective journey in propagating change…growth…wisdom…justice…compassion…hope…connectivity…enlightenment…and love…for the betterment…uplifting…and preservation of life and our planet…

Life cannot continue in reckless abandon and neglect of what propelled humanity out of Darkness into Light…

Celebrate this first day of 2022 by celebrating and appreciating Life…how close you may have come to not standing in this moment…and work to ensure these moments of renewal can come again…

Happy New Year!!!!

Count your blessings…..

A Matter of Choice…

Everyday we are faced with making choices…and accepting the consequences of our choices…good or not so good outcomes…however, our choices just the same.

No one can make us do anything…they can present us with choices…which we ultimately will settle by making our choice, weighing the consequences of our choice, before we make it.

Some people choose to believe, demonstrate and declare that they are being forced into making choices that may or may not be agreeable to them or their lifestyle…. Taking that stance and making such accusations and assumptions free their conscience from taking responsibility for making a choice…any choice…especially if they view it as unfavorable to them.

Life is made up of moments and choices. Free-will is always exercised no matter how dire the outcome or circumstance…or how wonderful or brilliant the yield may be in making choices.

Very rarely do our choices not touch the lives and circumstances of others. Many choose (there it is again, “choice”) to believe that their choices do not affect anyone or anything other than themselves…

Not true.

Just because that is your belief and you do not always look beyond your choices, doesn’t make your choice solely unto you. The universe is based on connectivity to all things great and small…

So when you make your choices in life, consider the responsibility. Choices direct lives…make lives…take lives…destroy lives…break lives…give lives…extend lives…spare lives…respect lives…appreciate lives…humble lives…restore lives…

Strive to make the best possible choices and understand the consequences…and take responsibility.

Responsibility is also a Matter of Choice….

Live…and make responsible choices…

Don’t blame others…for the choices you make…

Your life…your choices.

Every choice creates a thread…

Every thread connects a life…moment…or universe.

Be grateful for the journey…

And create a “better.”

It’s your choice……

Can We Fix Us?

Nature has a way of finding balance when something is not instep with her creation…

Almost every living thing has a way of correcting its anomalies…except for humanity…Humans would rather control and destroy than adjust and balance…and seek harmony in support of preserving resources and coming up with safe and viable alternatives to depletion and sucking the life out of our planet which sustains and supports life without conditions.

We exploit this gift of sustained life by ignorance…greed…and denial…

Now every ignorance, act of greed and gain, and denial of the consequences of guardianship of Earth… have come to collect…balance…and even the score. These callous and egregious acts of humankind visited upon the planet…and one another in war and non-support of those in less developed countries have unleashed forces that are now out of human control as well as being too late to repair what has been damaged.

People continue to believe that they can beat Covid-19 with and without vaccines…without masks…social distancing and ignorance and denial of common sense and logic…which will wipe out half the population of the planet if these attitudes and foolish flaunting continue in their present manner.

Life on this planet was given the choice of continuing forward in the evolution of life for another geological age…or face extinction.

Governments are failing…Climate change is demonstrating its human-altered existence…and destruction capabilities…a pandemic is quickly taking the shape of the next human-cleansing plague…

Can We Fix Us?

Do we want to fix us?

Do we want to fix human mistakes to preserve and save the planet…Our life force?

Do we care enough to fix us???

Maybe we need more heatwaves, floods and earthquakes…More countries ravaged by war, displacing and claiming the lives of innocent men, women and children…

Maybe we need more corrupt and non-functioning government entities and self-serving politicians…maybe we need more insurrections…misinformed and cult controlled citizens…and election promises that never materialize…for instance, $50,000 in student loan forgiveness by President Biden…or total student loan forgiveness to give our country’s economy a real boost and people the opportunity to have a piece of American Pie…

Maybe we need another albatross around our necks to rise up and toss “tea into harbors” around the country in protest of “taxation without representation”…especially people of color…

Maybe we need to question our humanity…and have #MeToo accountability in every aspect of man’s inhumanity to every man, woman and child…who just want to live a peaceful, happy life without targeted cruelty…disrespect and hatred…

Can… We… Fix… Us?

Tune in…bring your popcorn…your compassion…your humanity…

And if there’s a crowd…and you’re indoors…

Maybe…just maybe…A Mask?

July Goes Out On The Rise…

July Goes Out On The Rise…

Leaving us wondering…what will August bring in as a surprise?

Human behavior must change if we are going to garner positive gains. So many are not grasping the bigger picture…We can exercise our free-will…we can choose to go against the grain or go with it…realizing that in order to move forward with our choices, we cannot take others along with us. With that said, we must “disconnect” or lives from the lives of others when we make choices that may result in the loss of life…

Choosing not to take the vaccine is a choice…if this choice is taken, practice social distancing…masking up…and sanitize. Take responsibility and accountability for your choices…making others vulnerable to your choices opens up a greater door of accountability…which will result in greater consequences in the long run.

Make your choices knowing that you have more than one family affected by your choices…your biological family…your extended family…your work family…your social family…and your human family…you are consciously and sub-consciously connected…and physically connected in every outside activity that you consciously and sub-consciously engage in…right down to passing individuals on the street!

July has given us a harsh realization to the reality of Covid-19. The only way it is going to subside and eventually weaken is if we all do our part in making it so…

Take a moment to reflect on how you are influencing the rise of Covid-19 and it’s variants…It will continue to rise as long as those of us who make choices that pertain to self-centered thinking without considering their social “connectivity” and how they are not extending their choices to give others protection to their choices…

It’s okay if you want to walk that tightrope…just don’t harm others in the process of your feat…

Your will is your will and not necessarily the will of those around you…as you do not wish anyone to decide your fate…or force your will…do not force or decide the will and fate of others…many who do not know you…and those who do…do not cause them unnecessary pain and trauma. Do you love them enough to love yourself?

Life is a precious gift…you can choose to accept this gift or forfeit it…again…make that choice for yourself…not for others…

July is leaving us with sobering realizations…thoughts…and choices…

Bring in August with opportunities to lessen and rein in the spread of another offshoot variant of Covid-19…

This is in everyone’s hands…

Responsibility and accountability goes hand in hand with “Free-will.”

The choice is yours…mine…ours.

August will reveal the fork in the road…

The heroes and heroines we need…are in the choices we make…

Wisdom is Golden…

Wisdom prolongs Life…

Seek to attain Wisdom.

Your choice…..

Day In and Day Out… Holy Week Is Here.

Day in and day out

Year after year…

I ask myself why…

Why am I here?

This planet called Earth

Is a beautiful place…

But somehow its people

Have fallen from Grace…

They’ve totally distorted

A precious gift

Sent out from above…

The Wisdom of the Heavens

The gift of Love…

Day in and day out

Year after year…

Angels weep

To save the souls here…

Somehow it’s been forgotten

Through the passage of time…

Not to love one another

Is surely a crime…

It’s easier to be cruel…

To hate…you see…

Than to look for the love…

In you and me…

Day in and day out

Year after year…

I ask my God why…

Why am I here?

The answer comes softly…

Most certain and clear:

To restore the Love

So blocked out…by fear…

To give your heart

With compassion and cheer…

Truly learn…to turn

The other cheek…

Bring Light to the lost…

Comfort the weak…

As all life is mine…

It is also yours…

To strengthen

To nurture

To open closed doors…

If all this is done

Without thought to the deed…

You will have fulfilled

A very crucial need…

Day in and day out

Year after year…

Shine like a beacon

Let them know

I Am here…

Why…you ask…

Why are you here?

To show My Children…

I still hold them dear….

In this Holy Week…where all come together to pay reverence in their way to the meaning of Easter… Remember what it means to lay down your life…so that others may have life eternal…

Give reverence to those plagued and hounded by Racism…Prejudice…Discrimination…Hatred…

Imagine…what it would be like to be singled out because of the color of your skin…

Or have hatred visited upon you…because you are Asian…and treated with contempt…because of social ignorance and fear…

Or plagued by religious persecutions which go on all over the world in the waging of wars…and genocide…

To understand this week of Crucifixion…Sacrifice…Death…Resurrection and Life…Walk the path as each day passes…and understand what a Love as great as this really means for each and every one of us… Even if you don’t believe…look in your heart for the meaning of Love…and understand…that there is no love greater than to lay down your life for another…

Symbolically, stand up…speak out…come to the aid of…

Day in and day out…year after year…the trials and tribulations of Holy Week, are always being visited upon one individual or group of the human family…

One… who over 2000 years ago…did not think twice to stand up…speak out…and come to the aid of…ultimately giving the sacrifice of His life…for humanity’s gain.

He looked upon people as doing greater works than He…

We have only to witness those who have stepped out on faith and changed the course of human life in their selfless contributions to the betterment of humankind…

Step out of the shadow of fear…into the Light…

Day in and day out…year after year…

You may be the reason…

God holds His Children… dear….

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?

Believe…

Another month has dawned…

Here we are…the first day of March…2021.

Slowly but surely life is moving forward…not as quickly as the months of this year…

What can we do to accelerate our road to recovery in gathering together again?

Believe…

We can believe in and engage in the measures that will assist us in getting our lives back on track in living…

This can only happen if we…

Believe…

We can regain our faith in one another enough to care about one another…enough to practice social distancing…

Believe…

We can wear a mask and dispel the illusion that we are giving up personal rights to do so, when it has the odds on its side to save your life and the lives of others, knowing you can also set a life-saving example…

Believe…

We can overcome our fears enough to take a vaccine that has the ability to keep us from falling so ill that we may never recover…because we don’t want to fall ill…to the degree that we may become another fatality…

Believe…

That we are all superheroes and super heroines… because we possess the abilities to make all things possible to move ourselves forward through these current setbacks and obstacles…knowing all things will pass…and we can usher in the changes through these challenges…if we…

Believe….

If…for some reason you didn’t before…know it now…March 1, 2021 is here…

There’s no time like the present moment of this new month…to begin…

Get busy…Make it all happen…

Your life is calling…

Believe…..
