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…..

 

There Is Peace…On Every Front…

There is Peace…On every front…

Isn’t it strange how what was once thought to be so important that it was worth fighting over, no longer has any importance…when something more extreme enters the picture, like a life or death pandemic?

Has anyone noticed that there has been no warring or terrorist attacks…anywhere?  There has been no mention of wars or conflicts anywhere…and whatever is going on in conflicts…Covid-19 will put an end to those soon enough…

This virus is blind to hatred…discrimination…racism…prejudice…skin color…ethnicity…language…culture…young…old…rich…poor…celebrity…famous…stations in life…careers…royalty…the good…the bad…the beautiful…the not so beautiful…as far as its concerned…no one is safe…no one will be spared… Unless we turn it around…by paying attention…by listening…and acting in the best interest of others as well as ourselves…

And in order to see the big picture we must practice love and compassion.

I want to share another one of my favorite songs with you…  Let There Be Peace On Earth… When you read these words, feel them…put yourself into them and live them…because everything begins and ends with us…and if we close our hearts to what is possible for every last one of us who are presently residents of this planet Earth…we will be reminded by any means necessary…and the reminder sitting on everyone’s doorstep right now…is Covid-19…

Let There Be Peace On Earth

And let it begin with me

Let There Be Peace On Earth

The peace that was meant to be

 

With God as our Father

Brothers (and sisters) all are we

Let me walk with my brother (sister)

In perfect harmony

 

Let peace begin with me

Let this be the moment now

 

With ev’ry step I take

Let this be my solemn vow

To take each moment and live

Each moment in peace eternally

Let There Be Peace On Earth

And let it begin with me

 

Songwriters: Jill Jackson/Sy Miller

I took a little poetic license to add “sister(s)” because that’s the way it is…

Everything has taken a back seat to Covid-19…and it will be here…living amongst us…guiding us back to the basics of life…living… and what matters most…Humanity.

There is peace on every front…

And it begins with you….

a day
