Guardian Of Light…

At any time one can open up to Light…One can accept the Light…One can surrender to the Light…

We are all at crossroads in our lives…we have all been called to face the dawning of another change in the history of humankind…

The challenges which have been unfolding before us… will continue to unfold and take place…until we understand the real meaning of our lives…and the roles we play upon this planet…and in the lives of others…those we know…and those we have yet to know….There is absolutely no way around our connectivity to one another…friends…loved ones…enemies…strangers…we will never sever the thread that connects all of us…and everything…within our worlds…and the universe.

Perhaps you have never ventured outside of your universe…convinced that your world is of your own creation and those in it…are by your own design… You can continue to believe it…if you like…yet, it will never change what is…

We all have been called to task with the present state and functioning of our country… Who can deny that what is taking place from politics to food on the table…has not affected each and every one of us in some shape or form…

America is under siege…

We have an invisible enemy in the form of a virus…that has taken over our lives…to show us the meaning of our lives…and still, there are many who choose to defy this virus…and their defiance is affecting and putting many others at risk. So much for autonomy…

I have written a poem…

It calls everyone of us into action… We are Guardians…We must hear the voice within that is speaking to us all to do what is right…and to stand vigilant and strong…and enter the Light…

There is more to life than living…

One must master the Art of Giving…

Learning to open up your heart

Will give you a marvelous start…

It will guide you to Truth and Right…

Marking your journey

As a Guardian of Light…

Many will try

To Lead you astray…

Be strong

Walk on

Keep silent… and Pray…

Know and trust

The Power within…

Your angels will assemble

And rush to defend…

Hold to the laws

Handed down from Above…

Generate the Magic…

And Wisdom of Love…

And soon…

Very soon…

Before the falling of night…

You will have become…

A Guardian of Light….

It is written that mankind will destroy itself…It is a vision that is coming close to being realized…especially in light of the pandemic now plaguing the planet…and human impatience to practice patience and protocol…along with blatant indifference to Equality on every level of human existence…

Things MUST change…We can all be instruments of change…and salvation…

Your Light within…is calling you to act without…

You are a Warrior…

You are…A Guardian of Light….

A Little Christmas Cheer…

Robert Reich, an American economic advisor, professor, author, and politicial commentator, wrote on Twitter, on December 11, 2020, a very mind-boggling piece of information which gives rise to many questions and concerns about the $900 billion stimulus package passed by the Senate, yesterday.

Mr. Reich also served in the administrations of Presidents Gerald Ford and Jimmy Carter, and served as the United States Secretary of Labor from 1993 to 1997, under Bill Clinton.

Here is Mr. Reich’s tweet:

“America’s billionaires could give everybody in the country a $3,000 stimulus check and still be richer than they were before the pandemic.

If that doesn’t convince you we need a wealth tax, I don’t know what will.”

The compromise made in the stimulus package just approved, cut in half a stimulus payment previous, that provided $1200 to citizens…now that payment is $600…The bill also did not include state and local aid…State unemployment aid went from $600 dollars a week, to $300 a week, for an 11 week limited period… Republicans argued that people would choose to collect the money from the stimulus package, rather than work.

What a foolish and absurd conclusion…Do you think that is the reason why they never wore masks, and flaunted their “invincibility” to Covid-19, to show the millions who lost jobs, lives and income, due to this virus, that it was all in their heads, and working in infected environments was far better than protecting their health and families with government assistance during an escalating, fatally raging pandemic?!

The average American does not have the insurance or the privilege of being treated with the drugs, and by the doctors who attended those who were infected with the virus in the outgoing administration, due to their disbelief of the serious consequences of this virus, and their flirtatious folly of engagement and challenge in contracting it, by balking at and ignoring social distancing and mask protocol.

How many family Christmases will never be the same…because so many were mislead?

Mitch McConnell wanted to include protection for businesses against Covid-19 liability…Why? If you want people to work during the pandemic putting their lives on the line, businesses should incur liability should an employee contract the virus while on the job! When does human life become an asset…rather than always becoming collateral damage?

Cutting back on the “stimulus package” in terms of financial assistance sends a clear message to the American people….You’re “collateral damage.”

These bread crumbs are supposed to make you jump up and down with glee at such a Christmas miracle, according to many fat-cat politicians…Right. What happened to the stimulus assistance between July and now? The virus didn’t take a break. It ramped it up a thousand percent… Now it’s mutated resulting in more rapid contagion.

360 people in the United States, hold 4.3 trillion dollars in wealth… There are 331 million people in the United States…minus those lost to Covid-19… A large percentage of those people still living…are waiting in line at food banks…have lost…with more losing and being evicted from their homes this Christmas….

In 2008, the Troubled Asset Relief Program (TARP) was created to bailout the banks by purchasing toxic assets held by the banks… If the government had given every US citizen one million dollars, instead of bailing out the banks, the economy would have been stimulated by debts being paid, homes being paid off, and money poured back into the economy by the people…Guess what? The government could have saved a few billion dollars in surplus, and the people would have rescued the economy and the banks, with such a stimulus gesture… The reality is people are just pawns to be moved about…and “wooed and manipulated” when elected officials need a win.

Let that sink in…We the people are pawns of political and social greed…

It’s time to change the music…and sing to the tune of the people.

It’s time to walk to the beat of a different drummer…

The reality of Christmas cheer is on our doorsteps.

We are the heartbeat of this nation…

Where we go from here… is our reality.

Merry Christmas…..

The Last Month of 2020…

The last month of 2020…December 1, 2020…WOW! We made it.

We made it through to the final month in 2020…So many didn’t…Many who are no longer with us… thought they would be …and because a pandemic was not taken seriously by those who could have made a huge difference in saving lives…chose not to…and great losses of life were incurred and continue…and this virus still has a great share of “non-believers” as to it’s spread and destruction of lives….

We also stand on the eve of the final month in 2020 which signals the end of four years of “What just Happened?!”… in the saga of “45…a Renegade and His Brigade.”

Like the last four minutes of a football game…anything can still happen to change the final outcome…

In this final month of 2020, we can influence the outcome by embracing the better of ourselves…and becoming a light of example for our families…our friends…neighbors…and all those we come into contact with on a daily basis.

There is a magic within each and everyone of us…and when we come into contact with that “magic” in others of positive, like minds…miracles happen…and darkness makes way to reveal the light of change…and the light of love.

One voice…becomes a unity in song which can change the face of a nation…such as voices uniting in exercising their right to choose…by voting…A right to be heard in protesting egregious wrongs…by gathering together and speaking out…as one voice…in unity.

Let us use this last month in 2020 to look back…to remember…and realize that voices in unity make changes…We have witnessed voices in unity that moved to destroy…divide…and conquer…We have witnessed voices in unity that moved to heal…to shine lights on what is still needed to bring about equality and freedom…to rescue a nation on the verge of its democracy being shattered into oblivion…brilliant efforts that began…with one voice…perhaps even…your voice.

December brings another joyous event…While there is much pain and loss ingrained in 2020…Let’s use the miracle of Christmas to… remember…to heal…to rebuild…to love…and prepare to end this month with new hope and great expectations…and use your voice as a call to action…

You’re in the last four minutes of the football game…

You have 30 days….

The Soul of a Nation…Moral Character and Morality…Are You Good or Evil?

The Soul of a Nation…Moral Character and Morality…Are You Good or Evil?

November 3rd is our “Day of Judgement.” There is more at stake than Climate Change…The Economy…Healthcare…Supreme Court Justices…Democratic Party…Republican Party…Racism…and even the Corona Virus Pandemic…  What could be more significant than any and all of these?

The Soul of a Nation…Moral Character and Morality…Our Souls…Our Moral Character and Morality…

Are You Good or Evil?

We have been witnesses to the most corrupt and evil administration in our Nation’s history, hands down.  We have also been witnesses to the incredibly egregious lack of moral character and morality in the history of this Nation…blatantly committed by the Republican Party and its “dictator.” Presidents past…as well as the Senate, House, and Judicial branches of the government have never completely disregarded the Rule of Law, or their commitments to preserve it…until this present administration.

What is more appalling are the people who choose to follow and support such soulless acts against the people of this nation…while handing over their souls in complete abandon…without regard to the consequences they have condoned upon their fellow Americans…and themselves.

The votes we cast will reveal the essence of our souls…The truth of who we are deep within will be known by who we choose to support come November 3rd…We are the focus of this election…Each and every one of us is the soul of this nation…we…and we alone, have the power to restore the soul of our nation…

Are You Good…or are you Evil?

We must choose who best represents the soul of our Nation…

Are we Good…or are we Evil?

November 3rd…is our Judgement Day.

There is one Candidate who is…and has blatantly demonstrated…with pleasure and complete lack of empathy and concern… the guaranteed and absolute death of this Country…

There is one Candidate who will absolutely give our Nation an opportunity to rebuild and restore our Moral Character and Morality…

That Candidate will enable us to address, explore and find solutions to the issues that are presently plaguing, dividing, deteriorating and destroying a nation once known for its welcoming shores…

This Election is bigger than our personal needs…This election will either give us back the ability to fulfill our personal needs…on a National level…and as well…on a personal level…or take them away…Forever.

Our Goodness…or the Propensity for Evil…will decide the Soul of our Nation on November 3rd.

We can restore the moral character and morality in this country, so abhorrently blindsided by the present Administration…by what dwells within each one of us…

Are you Good…or are you Evil?

Party restructuring can occur with our votes…and our continued vigilance in standing up and making our voices heard by using our power…by unifying in massive support…as “We the People.”  What is a Nation…without people?  We are people…not pawns. When we demonstrate our power in Unity…we initiate and bring about Change….

Perfection does not exist in any individual…Compassion…Morality…Moral Character…Empathy…Humility…Love for Humanity…Love and Appreciation for our Planet…Selflessness…Goodness…These qualities are present in those who strive for the betterment of themselves… and for the elevation and betterment of Humanity…This Morality of Character…this Morality…this Goodness is present in many…it is this Goodness…that keeps the world turning…and it is this Goodness…that will save and restore…the Soul of a Nation.

Donald Trump and his Administration is not in any shape…form…or fashion… a reflection of Goodness…

What can you afford to lose?

Another family member or two… to Covid-19?

Another job or business because the working class is being overlooked and discounted due to those who have deemed the working heart and soul of America…expendable?

Each one of us knows our essence…Each one of us knows what is really at stake…

Future generations…of Humanity…and the ability to prolong the life of our environment…now depends upon the goodness…or evil…that takes the reins…at our choice….

Moral Character…Morality…The Soul of a Nation….

Are you Good…or Evil?

Judgement Day…

November 3rd

You…and Me…

We are the Key…

Salvation…or Damnation?

Your Soul…and the Soul of a Nation…

Our fate…is in… our hands…

And the Goodness or Evil…

Which each Soul chooses…

To Serve…..

June End Summation…Patience…Common Sense…Compassion…

Here we are…at another month’s end…Where are we going? What have we learned?

We’re going to Hell in a hand basket…and we’ve learned that the Coronavirus is in an upward surge again…social distancing and wearing masks just isn’t getting its message across to many…and the “young and invincible” are being hit the hardest in Covid-19’s rising new cases…

We’re going nowhere…and we’ve learned…Nothing. Due to the absence of Patience…Common Sense…and Compassion.

If people had patience, states would have remained in shutdown status until the end of August, early September…Yes, the economy and businesses would surely suffer…but lives would have been saved…testing strategies and trends would have had a better chance to reveal patterns of spread, and get more individual testing incorporated around the country to better identify asymptomatic individuals, as well as locate those who are positive.   We can always rebuild an economy and businesses…but we cannot revive those lives that are currently being lost, due to the lack of Patience…Common Sense…and Compassion.

Those who are practicing social distancing…wearing masks…staying at home…practicing patience…common sense and compassion, you are to be commended and given kudos, for thinking about others and yourselves during this critical time of life-changing consequence for all…

Heartfelt thanks to all of the healthcare professionals and others who are dedicated to attending and saving the lives of those taken down by this virus…Angels in the outfield…

Texas, Arizona and Florida are three of the states surging in new cases…and all three are led by Republican governors…urged by “someone’s” battle cry, to reopen the economy…Hmmm…who could that someone be? Well, his white-haired partner in crime is now wearing a mask…Hmmm…Maybe he’s figured something out…you think?! Come November…A Change is Gonna Come…

July is upon us…so is Independence Day…July 4th.  This is not a time to forget what is happening around us in rapid succession…Be smart…be cautionary…continue to care for one another and speak up when others are not… What is happening with this virus is not going to just disappear anytime soon…

In summation of June, we must learn to have eyes to see…and ears to hear…Human survival relies upon human patience…common sense…and compassion.  Don’t close your eyes and ears to what is going on around you…You, are a very important part of this equation…no one is immune…no one is invincible…do your part…

Continue protesting…Black Lives DO Matter! Practice social distancing and wear your masks, properly…for your sake…and the lives of those around you.  You are important to champion injustice…champion social distancing and use all protective measures during this pandemic…This is the “new normal” until a vaccine is developed…there is just no way around it! And yes, it is still a Pandemic.  The short reprieve…is over.

July awaits sense and sensibility…

In summation…Practice…

And what do we practice?

Patience…Common Sense…and Compassion…

Use PPE…and PCSC…

We hold each other’s lives…in our hands…

Be vigilant….

Think Outside of Yourself….

Today I went out to run some shopping errands…I was in a general merchandise retailer, shopping for specific food items I could only get there… I was standing there trying to make a choice between two items when I was approached by two women talking and pushing their cart in my direction… I looked up and one had on a mask, and the other had her mask pulled down under her chin, talking across to the other woman…

Rather than excuse themselves to let me know they wanted to get something very close to me, so I could allow them to enter into my space,  by backing up and practicing social distancing while they made their choices, they just walked up within inches of me and took items off the shelf where I stood, and didn’t back away to keep the six inches of required social distancing, posted on top of every shelf, spacing the distance for customers!

”So much for “social distancing,” I said to them.    The older of the two looked at me as if I’d spoken a foul word…and the other, who was younger, maybe mid to late twenties, said, “I’m a scientist, I’m not worried about it.” I replied, “You should be.” “I’m not.” She said. “I know what’s really going on…”

So I replied, “You’re a scientist? Then tell me what you know so I can know what you know.”

In a nutshell, she explained how the virus affected two percent of the population, whereas the flu virus affected three percent of the population…she went on to say that it was a “money” thing, because where she worked, they laid off many scientists so it would affect the research and the making of money for a vaccine…she summed up by saying it wasn’t as serious as everyone thinks…and she wasn’t worried about it, or possibly being infected by it… and she stays most of the time, in the house!

Isn’t “isolating” a form of social distancing ? Isn’t that a big reason why this virus was being held at bay, and a good possibility as to why she was unaffected so far?

Well, it turned out these ladies were mother and daughter…and her mother said, “Well, I’m old, I work in a hospital as a case manager, I wear my mask all day…and I’m scared.”

After telling her she wasn’t “old,” I did say that I was “old” as well, and her daughter could be my daughter, if I had one. Then I said, “As a matter-of-fact, you ARE my daughter, and I would say to you, you can believe as you want, but practice social distancing…for the others you come into contact with.”  I told her that I wear my mask not only for my protection…but for her protection as well…Anyone can be asymptomatic…

I continued my lecture to her, and her mother nodded and commented in agreement.  All young people know all and can solve all world problems…including their own…they are fearless…and the world is going to know their names! How familiar that sounds to most of us…

They may change the world and someday cure physical diseases, and social diseases such as racism, hatred, prejudice and discrimination…however, until then…practice common sense and safety during this pandemic…be safe for others…wear masks and practice social distancing…even if you believe you are invincible…

Think Outside of Yourself…it is your responsibility to be responsible during this crucial time in our history of surviving a health crisis that hovers over the planet at this time.

No one is immune…reinfection can occur…asymptomatic carriers are walking time-bombs to many…

Please be vigilant…practice the required safety measures…if not for concern for yourselves…practice for the concern and safety of others…and you will be doing a great service to yourself, and others.

Our daily lives have never known the compound fractures and breaks which are cropping up everywhere…all over…in various and precarious situations endangering everyone…some more than others…in all walks and positions…and stations in life…be kind…be caring…be watchful…show compassion…lead with humility…be the ever Good Samaritan…

Now…more than ever…Think Outside of Yourself…

A life may depend on it…and it may be yours….

 

Birthday Reflections…

June 1st is the day I came into being six decades and 6 years ago…There are many chapters which fill the six, and nearly half volumes of my life… There have been many adventures…romances…fiction…nonfiction…fantasy…science fiction…mysteries…travels…novels…history…poetry…drama…drama…and more drama!

Reflecting on what’s happening in our world today…a pandemic that projects science fiction proportions…and a country in further crisis by an administration based on fiction…and drama…drama…and more drama…

I constantly ask myself, “How did we get here?! How did we as a people, come to this pace of utter spiritual bankruptcy and human deprivation? How did “civilization” degress to such a potpourri of chaos and decay?

I grew up in the sixties…the decade of Love…I always believed that the world was on its way to becoming better…I guess I allowed my my rose-colored glasses to become more factual than the fashionable accessory they were meant to be…

I have seen and experienced horrors and tragedies…and rather than give in to the darkness of the moments and occasions…I’ve worked at using them to understand…persevere…grow…educate…relate…and translate these life changing episodes into levels of enlightenment…one must never let life become too heavy as to crush you…under what comes your way…Nor let your heart become cold, hard and embittered at what may confront you on your journey through life…

While I have seen and experienced much…I have not experienced all…and most likely, never will…

As long as I am still here, it is my intention to live for love…to live to give love…to live to experience more love…to live and show by example, that love is…and always will be the key…to a life well spent…My “Better Blessed” is Love….

What I have managed to learn in my short time upon this planet…is that life is precious…and there are those who are far too concentrated on destroying life…by destroying love…

We are all children of Love…We are all children of the Universe…We are all Children of God…The Force…Buddha…Allah…Jehovah…Yahweh…Love…

The next time you come across…or see anything or anyone…out of step with love…sow your seeds of love upon that troubled place or soul…

Birthday Reflections belong to all of us…we must reflect upon our lives and how we are living…and what we are giving…to make ourselves and our world…blessed and better…for everyone…everyday…and if that is too much…to make it an everyday thing… reflect on your birthday…it will give you a perspective on life, like no other…

My birthday wish…is for everyone…everywhere…to take a moment…start small, and increase each day, in becoming the best of yourselves with love…and giving love…and watching out for one another…in the name of love…no matter who they are and especially if they do not look like you…

We are all a part of the human family…whether we like it or not…whether we care to be…or not. Nothing in this universe can change that…so stop trying…give in to Love…

2000 years ago, One gave His Life…in the name of Love…to save a race…The Human Race….Birthday Reflections will allow you to see yourself…Let that reflection be Love….

Happy Birthday….to you…..

Earth Day Message…She Is Healing…

Today is Earth Day…and during this pandemic which has resulted in social distancing and home confinement…it has also brought about the Earth healing herself…from humankind!

Without the tons of vehicles coming and going which contribute to the polluting of the air, the air is cleaner and clearer…

Without the water vessel traffic on Earth’s oceans, seas and rivers and lakes, these living waters have been able to begin a cleansing to clear the waters of pollutants dumped callously about by humankind…

This pandemic is indeed a wake up call to humanity…in more ways than one…

The message is loud and clear:  Take care of  the human race, take care of your planet… If this crucial message is not received…the next wave of truth will be just as devastating as what we are now bearing witness to…

I have been observing people in my city…it is heartbreaking to see those who are not practicing social distancing, or protecting themselves, or their children, or others… by covering their faces while out and about shopping for food or other essentials (or non-essentials) observing latex and vinyl gloves thrown about parking lots and sidewalks…

We must learn to live in harmony with our surroundings…our environment. The ground is not our trash bin.

Until a vaccine is discovered for this virus, and produced, masks and social distancing is the new normal… until that day happens.  No one is invincible…no one is untouchable… The sun and warm days are not going to make this viral pandemic disappear or go away…

Life as we once knew it…is gone forever.  It will never come or be…again.  A new world is emerging, and this change is happening now…and it will continue forward…with or without the cooperation of humanity….

It is time for balance…

The Earth is healing…

Humanity is being given the opportunity to heal…

Learn and live the meaning of love…in all of its many facets…especially loving your neighbor as yourself…we are all brothers and sisters…in a world of one race…The human race….

The Earth will heal and cleanse herself… with or without man’s intervention…or  continued destruction…The law of the Universe is Balance…. and balance it will.

Earth Day Message…She Is Healing…

Earth Message to Humanity…Heal your hearts and open your minds…

The Universe is preparing to Balance…denial and ignorance will not stand in its way…

It’s time to change…or get lost in the transformation…

Heal….

Holy Week…A Time For Reflection…Then Resurrection…

I always find the week leading up to Easter Sunday, Holy Week,  is a week of reflection and resurrection of your spirit…A week of contemplation and giving of yourself…as Jesus gave of Himself…and ultimately, Himself… for Humanity’s Salvation…Yet in this week of reflection, we examine ourselves to find if we have been true to our inner spirits of God’s faith in us as being worthy of salvation…by giving service to others, unconditionally,  while manifesting miracles through the power of love…

Our trial as true beacons of light and love, was ushered in by a pandemic…this pandemic is going to be one of the ultimate tests of humankind’s service to one another and a testament to the power and miracle manifestations of Love…

Maundy Thursday and Good Friday are always reflections of the finality and suffering of Jesus’s last acts in human form, by the reaction of the weather during those days…Thursday, it rained all day…Friday began cloudy…the sun broke through momentarily…and then there was rain…and darkness.  The heavens remember  the past…representing these days, every year that I can remember, with darkness and rain…Sorrow and tears from above…to cleanse and open our hearts to the real reason of our existence…Love….

Tomorrow will be the day of the Great Resurrection…He rose again to save our souls…so we could save others…Practice Connectivity…Teach Brotherhood…Give Peace….Manifest Miracles Through Love…Become the Power…Become Love…We are and always will be Love…Tapped or untapped…it is who we are…and we will be tested…time and time again…until we face that realization…

No matter how many eons pass…or how many resurrections we find before us…We will always be given a reminder…This pandemic will pass…but not our capacity to Love…it must stay with us and we must cultivate it daily…hourly…moment by moment…without giving thought to the deeds or the giving…lest we do…we will be given a test even greater…to which there may be no return to give thanks…

There are only hours left to reflect before we resurrect…become one with He who gave His life…so we could live…

I will leave you with that reflection…..
