Comments…Thoughts…and Questions…

G.I. Jane was a movie about a woman rising to the occasion in a male dominated military…namely the US Navy’s SEAL/C.R.T. program. The program had a standard 60% dropout rate for men…LT. Jordan O’Neill, (Demi Moore’s character) was determined to prove everyone wrong about her passing the program. She succeeds… The joke made was referencing a haircut…not a condition…the movie was a testament to the spirit of women and their ability to overcome adversity and triumph against all odds…The Smiths clearly failed to rise above and made it personal…and costly…to their detriment. Violence is never the answer to displeasure…

Chris Rock emerged with gains, respectability… and as a person who rose above an unnecessarily, volatile situation…it was the bringer of the physical action who belittled himself…. excuses do not equal passage to put hands on another perpetuating physical harm or verbal abuse…Everyday we are all faced with trials of our evolutionary process to rise above that which would pull us down into the depths of self-destructive and caustic behaviors…toward ourselves, as well as others…and we choose…

Save America? Muzzle Trump and the GOP…

Will America ever live up to its name of “United States of America”? Are we headed for that great graveyard of past empires that have crashed and burned into oblivion?

Forgiving…mending…and healing the past…will lead the way to unity…along with restructuring the present political parties to really be the voice of the people…and a nation of democracy.

Staying on course with the present GOP will surely condemn the nation to ruin…their loyalties are not rooted in Democracy…The majority of the Republican party promote poisonous theories and ideals, placing their party above the Constitution…Liberty…and Freedom….as well as real service to their American constituents…on both sides of the political spectrum. They promote division and the hateful doctrines which continue to keep America divided….

We must not walk blindly into harmful principles and voting changes that will render our country a remnant of what it can be again…America, the Beautiful…

Imperialism is slavery…it has no place on American soil…Those Republican Senators that are praising Putin along with a fallen, narcissistic businessman bent on controlling a nation through a passive-aggressive GOP political party…chipping away at American democracy…places our nation nearer to an eve of destruction…

All over the world…we have witnessed that rules are only made to be broken…applicable to some, yet not to others….If we cannot contain and put a stop to the tyrants masquerading as politicians in our own country…how can a tyrant and demonic presence such as Putin be stopped? Others with Putin’s agenda are just waiting in the wings to further wreak havoc and destruction upon unsuspecting populations who are only interested in living a good life in peace…with freedom.

Ukraine is fighting the good fight…they believe in Ukraine….they believe in freedom…and they are dying for that belief and dedication and loyalty…. to democracy and peace…

Those nations in the world…along with America…must stand up to peace and freedom…by fighting alongside Ukraine, in addition to sanctions…we must do more than the impossible….

We must not fool ourselves into believing that this aggression and genocide perpetrated by Putin and his Russia…is not on our doorsteps…it is…and our boots are already in it.

We are faced with the monumental task of literally healing the world…

We cannot afford to fly off the handle in pursuit of the mundane and self-absorbed…trite…chest-beating heroics…

Before life can be lived…

There must come an appreciation for it…

On every level and spectrum of life…

Our purpose…

Is….?

Connectivity….

Connectivity…I have talked about it in the past…We are all connected…what we say…what we do…what we think…affects those around us…and those we don’t know…

We would like to think that we live inside our own little bubbles…in our own created corners of the world…We do not…This connection to all came up on the televised around the globe Oscar Ceremony, Sunday, March 27, 2022….

Witnessing the incident of assault upon Chris Rock by Will Smith made me physically ill…it was also described by other celebrities and people who witnessed the assault as making them physically ill as well…

Will Smith’s action reverberated around the world…and touched lives out of his sphere of everyday existence! His action took the life out of the celebration…and took away the light from the auditorium of people who were as well being acknowledged for their historic achievements…which fell to the wayside by an act of violence….

Love does not make us do crazy things…the inability to control emotions…rely upon intelligence…and understanding that it is love that gives us the opportunity to do the right thing…the humility and the insight to rise above any situation that would lead one to act impulsively and create a domino effect by not taking a step back first…and realizing the repercussions…to others…as well as yourself…is an individual act of free-will…

Anyone believing that they are chosen to be an ambassador or vessel of love and peace…should read and study passages from holy books and sages…which gives everyone the abilities to be unconditional in their love of humanity and becoming peacemakers…

“Sticks and stones can break my bones…but words can never hurt me.”

Will Smith was given an example of love from Chris Rock...Chris chose not to press charges…He hasn’t spoken about the incident…and for both men it was a test of spiritual evolution….someone lost…and someone gained….

I would recommend the reading of 1 Corinthians 13, verses 4-8 for Will Smith, his family…and anyone who believes it is their mission to be an example of love and peace…or again, any holy book that teaches the real meaning of Love….

We must understand how we all affect our human family…and the planet we live on…it is alive as well….

We are all connected….

Acts of violence destroy….

Acts of love restores….creates more love….and endures….lighting the world….

What kind of conduit will you be?

What Do You Think?

More and more… life around us is becoming more strange and chaotic…

It raises questions on where we are in our evolving process…Are we moving forward or backward?

Throughout human evolution life has been nothing more than a game of Chess…Everybody wants to rule the world….why? Can’t people learn to live in peace?

There was an episode of The X-Files where Mulder came in contact with a genie. After 500 years of granting wishes, she has concluded that people are still greedy and self-centered as they always have been…so, she begins to corrupt the wishes granted if they are not “specific” enough in what they want.

She grants Mulder three wishes…he asks for world peace. He goes outside and realizes that there are no people! He questioned the genie and she tells him that he wished for world peace…that’s when Mulder realized that “people” are the problem that creates the chaos that disrupts the world being peaceful…and in order to have his remaining wishes granted, he must be specific to the degree that the wish cannot have any possibility of being distorted or corrupt. He asked the genie what she would wish for…if she could…after she told him…he wished it for her…it was his last wish…because he asked her to undo his first wish…

What Do You Think?

The trouble with people…are people…if people allow people to be the problem…

Do you ever wonder what peace on earth would be like if humanity could evolve beyond the darkness of chaos and world domination?

You don’t need to wonder…you don’t need a genie…

Peace begins…and ends…with you….

Peace and Freedom…Let’s Ponder the Possibility…

As long as there are tyrants walking the earth…there will never be peace…

As long as there is oppression of populations…there will never be freedom…

Racism…Hatred…Division…Delusions of privilege through supremacy negates any possibility of peace and freedom.

Peace and freedom are just glorious words waiting to be given the full opportunity to mass materialize into permanent reality…to someday be bestowed upon every human being now present upon this planet. It is foolish to believe that real peace and freedom exists now amongst the ever-present chaos created through self-absorption and abuses of power wherever people are dwelling… The peace and freedom that is now sprinkled across the world is just a pseudo display and mocking in form of what peace and freedom should be…and what they are in literal meaning…and what they stand for in actuality.

Mass populations have been mesmerized and brainwashed into accepting their roles as domesticated cattle…allowed to graze and roam so far…until they are rounded up for slaughter…without resistance… Having become lost in a temporary plot of limited peace and freedom…manufactured as their utopia…by some flawed, insecure, maniacal group or individual, drunk with power and delusions that mount in grandiosity of belief in ruling the world and being a “leader..”

Real leaders are not feared by their citizens because they do not subjugate and control…kill…steal…create conflict…or destroy…lie…deceive…or disregard laws of civility and humanity with impunity. We have witnessed this time and time again…from “leaders” in every corner of the world…including here in America…

We are now witnessing radical Republicans and their “Nazi-fication” of America through their constant propaganda flinging and continued division fueling which has left the viability of democracy in this country weakened and still in question by the rest of the world. This deepening and continued division breeding and anti-democratic demonstrating by the GOP is what energized what is now happening in Ukraine by Putin…

He magnified America’s “Achilles heel” by using his propaganda machine over social media to influence the 2016 election…out of which emerged increased racial and political division…and a control of Party power that has further ripped this country apart in the abuse and quest for power and control between two government parties who swore allegiance to a country….with the GOP revealing their true allegiance is…as…and always has been to themselves…and to bring this country back to “the land of cotton.”

Meaning a few, not-of-color American “Oligarchs,” who hold and abuse power by reversing change, resisting change, while exercising oppression…and brainwashing their constituents into believing they are working in their citizens best interest…when they are just strengthening their own… Same agenda…different country. “The greater the power…the more dangerous the abuse…”

Our Constitution has given those who truly believe in the democracy of this country and what it should stand for the ability to stave off those tyrants that are blatantly attempting to sabotage our government by doing everything possible, including voter suppression in the guise of “voter protection” laws now trying to sweep across the country…ignoring constitutional remedies such as impeachment of clear and present dangerous persons in every governing branch of government…

These tyrants, led by Mitch McConnell are bent on destroying democracy…He leads the GOP in the practice of division and partisan politics…Partisan politics are nothing more than dictatorial in process…democracy cannot function as it should when the will of the people are not fully represented…and really have no intention of being represented…

Peace and freedom are conditional…wherever their are tyrants…politicians…dictatorships…and any quest for power that excludes real and true representation of the people…

We are getting a glimpse into what it looks like to be a real leader in the President of Ukraine…and the unity of those who live and breathe the meaning of peace and freedom by their defense of it…the people of Ukraine…

Here in America and across the world…we stand up and protest injustice…in civil rights protests, lives have been lost…Peace and freedom come with a price…a price we must all be willing to pay…

Would you lay down your life for world peace…Freedom?

Everyone is fearful of nuclear war…including Putin.

Has he suddenly grown tired of living…is that why he invaded Ukraine? No…

Is everyone in Russia tired of living, so much so that they have turned over the plight of their lives as to living or dying, in the hands of a tyrant? No…

Putin is banking on the fact that countries are afraid of invoking a nuclear response if they do the right thing by aiding a country that he has unjustly invaded for his own personal and delusional realization of resurrecting a vision of Russian imperialism…under his rule.

He does not expect to be met with aggression as he should be… and as long as those who can stop his aggression and invasion in Ukraine remain paralyzed by the thought of nuclear retaliation on his part…he will succeed in his ruse…This is his weapon.

Anyone who repeatedly watched the capture and death of an ally…fears for his own peace and freedom…it is what inevitably happens to a tyrant…committed by his own…or committed by those who will not sacrifice their lives for the folly of the one…or by the tyrant’s own hand…in defeat. Putin will not be one to take his own life…

Carefully planned aggression will be his downfall and demise.

Peace and freedom must be preserved at cost…always…in the world that we live in…Peace and freedom are fought for…and protected…and forever under watch. Ukraine cannot be denied the protection they live for…and are dying for…we must all remember…we must all defend. Peace and freedom will always be challenged and if we cannot…and do not protect it…how can we believe in it…speak on it…desire it…live it?

Ask why history is always repeating itself….because the same elements are allowed to reconfigure themselves and rise again…their roots are left behind to regenerate and grow into a plant that scatters its seeds…finds fertile soil…and produces seedlings that become more resistant with every opportunity of growth.

The “root” must be extracted completely to end regrowth…depleted soil to be replace with new, enriched soil…planted with the seeds of change and progress that yields justice…peace…and freedom to all unified humanity.

We must take back our country from the tyrants on our soil…

Peace and freedom is infused in the foundation of America…by every diverse member of her population…

These days…and the years to come…will be greatly influenced by what is done to ensure that peace and freedom aren’t relegated to becoming just words that roll meaningless off the tongue…

Peace and Freedom…

Ponder the possibility of life without them…after tasting the sweetness of them…

Ponder it…

And ask yourself…

Can you live and survive in a country…a world…without them?

Happy Saint Patrick’s Day!

Spread Love…Conjure up Luck…Send special Prayers…Send out Joy…

Embrace your freedom to celebrate…and remember those who cannot….

Peace and Freedom are precious…Lift your glasses and drink to always defend it…wherever it is needed!!!

Happy Saint Patrick’s Day!

May Peace Prevail in Ukraine!!!

The Spirit of Democracy…

The Spirit of Democracy is truly the embodiment of the Ukrainian people…

Their commitment and unity to freedom and “rule by the people” is a force that can move mountains.  If we really believe in the doctrine of Democracy, we would be right alongside them in this battle which will set the world stage for a future of peace and a united front against any and all aggressors, such as Putin, or Democracy will surely deteriorate and open the world doors to continued challenges to peace and freedom.

It is interesting that war has presented itself at a time when over 2,000 years ago, a life was given to save humanity from itself…

Here is the test and tribulation presented to all countries of the free world…right here…right now…Are you willing to lay down your lives for our Ukrainian, human family members who are standing up for our freedom…while fighting to keep their own?  And our Russian family who are standing up in opposition and suffering the consequences because of their desire to also have a democracy where rule by the people will give them their desired freedom…peace…and voice, without oppression or life threats?

We cannot continue to “fight Putin’s war” without standing toe to toe with him…

He must be held accountable and answer for his crimes against humanity.

Too many have already been sacrificed to preserve the wants of the few…there are times when it is time to “Join them…to beat them.”  This is that time…

Once it is understood by all that an attack upon one…is an attack upon all…the willingness to lay down your life for another will never again lack in courage to do what is right.

Everyone has been forewarned before…

History is repeating itself…

The opportunity to end this travesty has presented itself and opened a door to vindicate our nation…and all countries the world over who have been touched by the evil we are all standing witness to in real time…as well as the past….

War has been declared on all of us.  We cannot afford to not do what is necessary to preserve Ukraine and put an end to this dictatorial madness…if we do not… We will endure consequences that will affect the peace…freedom and lives of all humanity…

Where is your Spirit of Democracy?

The Ancient Greeks gave it to the world…it’s up to all of us to preserve it…

The preservation of it lies in the strategy of aggression…

That strategy has revealed itself…

Everyone has been watching it unfold…for years…

Now is the time for every world citizen to come to the aid of our human family…

Without reservation…

Our Ukrainian family is our beacon torch…

We all must keep that torch burning bright….

In The Name of Peace…For The Sake of Peace…

In the Name of Peace…For the Sake of Peace…What must be done?

When you cannot reach the unreachable with reason…what’s next?

The bottom line is simple.

Rules of war must be changed to defend against free countries being invaded by madmen.

History continually repeating itself wherein tyrants can roam at will and change, uproot and destroy the lives and futures of those who only seek to live in peace and freedom should not be allowed to happen, ever again.

How far have we really come as human beings if we cannot find an answer to contain and neutralize those who continue to challenge peace and freedom with impunity? The 21st Century has only been a reflection of medieval savagery and brutality in acts of war…along with inhumanities of racism…prejudices…and hatreds still running rampant and visited upon those who only wish to live in peace…and have the guaranteed freedom to do so…

The sad truth that is being revealed is…peace and freedom are not guaranteed…and are commodities in a world of selective privileges…where everyday people are just pawns in someone else’s game…

In The Name of Peace…For The Sake of Peace…

Leaders of the Free World… What must be done to ensure that the atrocities that are taking place In Ukraine…due to a medieval-minded midget…cease and never happen again? Sanctions are only splinters to the offender…

As long as lies and acts of war go unchallenged without the means to match the offenses….The world will never be free from such evil-minded warmongers…

In The Name of Peace…For the Sake of Peace…

Rewrite history…

Standing by on the freedom-fighting spirit of the Ukrainian people…

Is not an option…

When peace is challenged…

All are challenged….

This war is already on everyone’s doorstep…

Closing eyes will not make that go away.

As long as there are “Putins” rising…

War will always be alive…

Reigning terror and chipping away at democracy…

And the free world…

In The Name of Peace…

For The Sake of Peace…

It is time to guarantee…

That peace prevails…..

The Evolution of the Human Spirit Will Continue…With… Or Without Us…

The evolution of the human spirit continues on its journey with each challenge that presents itself in the world around us… With each obstacle that is placed before each member of the human race…we are faced with the opportunity to place ourselves into the shoes of those who find themselves on the receiving end of “man’s inhumanity to man,” and given the choice to experience what is being perpetrated, and how we would react.

After the first two world wars, checks and balances were not put into place to keep more powerfully equipped nations to also have checks and balances to avoid what is taking place at this moment with Russia’s attack on Ukraine.  NATO must realize that any act of aggression which causes any country deciding that they are going to overtake another country, using veiled excuses to do so, is an act of war on all peaceful nations.  There can be no other way to stop such aggression except by meeting the aggressor with like aggression.

While nuclear war and world war is definitely what is needed to be avoided…the world may find themselves on that precipice despite efforts to avoid it.

Acts of war that have been initiated by Putin’s Russia should have been anticipated during the Cold War decades ago, with checks and balances put into place on world powers, at that time, looking forward.  Russia’s power to veto, as all super powers with such a “weapon” should have had neutral nations given that ability to ‘neutralize’ such a power of veto when it could be used as it was, to “justify” a monstrous attack on a peaceful country…wishing nothing more than their freedom through their choice of democracy.

The human spirit is being tested on morality and the realization that all humanity is connected…regardless of how divisions and separatist actions are constantly being imposed upon us…by one another…

We are being challenged to take a good look at us and how we respond to conditions that only we as humanity can stop…or continue to allow…by what dwells within the confines of ourselves…in the depths… or shallowness of our souls…or…if we really have a heart…and soul…to feel and use our compassion and resolve to step up and do what is right…Have we fallen so far away from the light of our spirits?

Racism is one of man’s ugliest and costliest use of evil…on every level of living…

There is no justification for Racism…ever!  There is no argument for Racism…ever!

There is no superiority or privilege that justifies any act of racism against ANYONE who does not look like you…ever!

What we are witnessing in these continued attacks of racism upon groups targeted by such hatred are nothing less than pure evil…which we condone…if we do not take the stance to stop it in its tracks.  Take off your “coat” and see that under that coat of skin…every human being is the same…organs…blood…bone…tissue…when donated, can give continued life to another…regardless of color…creed…culture…or religious beliefs…

The continuity of the human spirit is reflected in how we respond to life…and one another.  Our evolution of spirit…is what will ensure the continuity of humanity…only if we can really comprehend that destruction and the indiscriminate treatment of dismissing lives due to “appearances”… collateral damage…or casualties of war…will only hasten humanity’s demise…and perhaps our planet as well.

We are the architects of our future…We must trust the light which dwells within us to elevate our spirits to embrace what is true and just…and act upon that flame which brings about the freedom and peace…that we claim to live for…

The world is changing…so are we…and our spirits are reflecting the change that we are striving to become…Our actions will reveal how we are changing…

In the shadows of savagery and evil…

Or in the light of love and salvation…preserving the best of humanity…

Peace and unity will come…

When we step out of the shadows…

Into the light…

The human spirit is a powerful entity…

Let yours take flight…

With or without us…

The evolution of the human spirit…

Will prevail….

Your time is here.

The change is in a twinkling of an eye…

Are you ready?

You are the key to Peace…..

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

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

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

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

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

Ever wonder why God is no respecter of persons?

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

Humanity squanders Free-will…

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

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

What is the worst that could happen in your world?

Sleep on it….

We Dream the Dream…Let’s Make it Happen…For Everyone….

Today is the celebration of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr’s birthday…

I want to reflect on an article I was sent back in 1999, when putting together a list of charities to benefit from a concert that was being prepared to move into the 21st Century…This was one of the charities…Oxfam America…

“Many believe blacks must participate in the structure of American capitalism in order to prosper as individuals and communities.  Ownership, the bedrock of American society and measure of success, makes citizens free to master their own destinies.  Ownership brings leverage in American economic life and, subsequently, social and political spheres.  Lack of ownership, many believe, has kept blacks and minorities in an inferior social position in which financial resources are squandered to maintain the success of already powerful whites.”

–Laura K. Warrell, Oxfam America Viewpoint, spring 1999, Cover Story, “Does Restitution for Black Farmers Equal Justice”

Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. believed and spoke upon equality for Black Americans economically, as a key factor in achieving racial equality, and spoke upon it in many of his speeches on the long road to establishing Civil Rights for Americans of African ancestry…decades before organizations like Oxfam took up the journey to solidify processes and progress in this still long, long road to racial equality…

Where are we in education…housing…jobs…equal pay…civil rights…freedom…the American Dream…Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s Dream?

When you look at America today…do you see progress or a train running backwards down a hill… headed for certain destruction? Do you see hope for a brighter future? Or positive changes unraveling and being taken apart…taking a country back to savage beginnings it takes pride in clinging to?

How can we…honor the best of ourselves…by implementing that best into the fabric of a nation torn and tattered by division and despair? How can we ensure the promise of America, when days like today come…and remind us what living and living in America…and the world, is really all about?

Take today and remember…take today and what it really means to dream a dream of peace…unity…humanhood…community…liberty…freedom…and make it your reality to create a world that can continue to achieve and sustain the better part of humanity’s contributions in ensuring a future for generations…

I have a dream…

That we will wake up…create the dream…and live it….
