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….

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.

Thanks-In-Giving…

Being thankful to give is the message today…

People hold the fate of the world in the palm of their hands. When we realize that being thankful means what we give to the world…not what we take from it…is the meaning of true “Thanksgiving,” we will see a new light of positivity emerge in the world and in our lives.

We must take a step back and take a good look around our created worlds which we have created within the reality of what is going on around us…truly…with honesty and reflection. What can you give to the world that will change your life and the lives of others in a most positive way…to ensure that the world keeps on turning…healing…and giving us the very air that we breathe?

What can we give to someone…anyone…to improve upon their condition of struggle…adversity…pain…or add to the smiles and selfless giving that does, somehow, seem to find you…in your moments of empty nothingness that strikes like a viper in the most inopportune of moments?

Giving thanks is more than sitting down at a dinner table and sharing a meal…one day out of the year. Understand the message of Covid-19…How appreciative are we of our times spent with loved ones and friends? Until we fully understand the meaning of “family”…of “friends”…of human connectivity…and how we mock the gift of life by holding selfish beliefs above selfless giving…the world will continue to experience loss in life…and loss… in humanity….

Give thanks in being capable of giving…

Give thanks in what you have been given…in goodness and wisdom…that you can pass on in contributing to make the world whole and give it strength in supporting life and adding longevity to its journey of existence in our galaxy.

The Earth does not restrict or withhold in giving her gifts of life…Why must we?

Thanksgiving is so much more than what it is chosen to represent…

Give thanks for “Thanks-In-Giving.”

Give thanks that you can….

Everyday we are given another day of life…

Another day to give thanks….

Another day to give…

Another day to be thankful…and understand…everything we have…was given.

Everyday…is Thanksgiving.

Happy Thanksgiving…

Happy Thanks-In-Giving!!!!

To Love…Is To Find.

To Love

Is to find…

For Love is pure…

It does not hide.

To bare one’s soul

Is to be alone…

For Honesty

Is a large pill to shallow…

To Be

Is to first exist…

How can we?

If we do not Love….

We must find love…it is our only salvation. If we continue to embrace what is shallow…materialistic and fleeting…we will not prevail and humanity will cease to be.

America…

It is crucial that we understand the importance of what this country should stand for…it is of high importance that we understand our connectivity and what it means to be guardians…shepherds…preservers…and respecters of life…in respecting life we respect the freedom of others…without impositions of our will…yet, this is a double-edged sword…because in respecting others we must be inclusive, open to all views…yet find the common ground of compromise…

If we understand what love is…and find the road to love…we will unite our country…as well as ourselves… Eventually…our world.

To Love…

Is to Find…

For Love is Pure…

It does not hide…

If you believe in Love…You won’t need to look far to find it…

Open your heart…..

A World of Lies…Or the Light of Truth?

A World of Lies…or the Light of Truth…

Which would you prefer?

A world of lies…or the light of truth?

I strive to tell the truth and shine the light of truth in everything that I do…I would rather sting in the moment of truth rather than drown in an ocean of lies.

What I write isn’t always going to be popular, pleasant, or delightful…however, it will be the truth…not “my truth,” but the truth…

It is important that we build our lives in truth…and live our lives from truth…no matter how we might perceive it as painful or too sobering…because lessons in truth form the core of our being…and should we speak from “our truth” it should always be drawn from experience.

Opinions “of truth” are just that…opinions.  We should not offer opinions of truth because they tend to distort “innocence” in thinking for oneself…and create someone else’s point of view within our consciousness. 

Our quest for truth is a journey of enlightenment for our souls…we nurture our desire to be filled with light…the light of truth elevates our being…gives us powerful insights… and allows us to see the real reality of any situation.

When we accept lies, we cloud our consciousness and our perceptions to what is reality…and what is not.  Because lies are constructed on falsehood, they will eventually crumble and tumble down…bringing you along with it. 

Sometimes, there can be no recovery because the damage is too severe…and one cannot emerge without scars…or the loss of one’s soul.

Truth and lies…a fine line to walk…yet an easy line to cross.

My sincere and deepest thanks to everyone who ventures across this threshold and stops for a read or two…and sometimes, what you’ve, read resonates your soul…and you take a seat…to see what is coming next, from this school of thought…

You are the tomorrows of today…walking your path of light in search of truth.

Welcome to this journey…I promise to always bring you truth…because deep within the caverns of our souls…

Truth…is what we are….

And what we seek to become…

A part of the flame that eternally burns…

In Truth….

A world of lies is fleeting…

Only truth remains constant…

Savor the transformation….

A new day and age has dawned…

A World of Lies…

Or the Light of Truth?

Let the Light shine…

Within…and without….

Peace…..

Be Strong, Sistah…Be Strong….

From 1920 to 2020…Women have been fighting for and demanding their place in the world… and the respect they so rightfully deserve in contributions to the world…their communities…their families…and their own lives… Yet, it continues to be a constant struggle, a century later, for those of the opposite sex to recognize and acknowledge fully…the feminine energy, and how it continues to build the world…and heal the destruction and devastation, usually initiated and cultivated by her masculine counterpart…

To all of the women of the world, My Sistahs… I dedicate this writing…Always remember who you are…despite what others want to make you out to be…Remember your pains and your struggles…your wants and your needs…your strong and everlasting spirit…and your drive to be true to yourself…

We nurture the Universe…and we must remember to nurture ourselves…especially moving into 2021…

We have much to do…So let’s do it with our feminine force…and our quiet courage…and our undying spirits…when we’re going through it…when we’re asking ourselves why…just remember…it’s okay to cry…to retreat for a moment to gather your bearings…just come back with a vengeance to succeed…and…Be Strong, Sistah…Be Strong….

Be Strong, Sistah…Be Strong…

How long have I heard those words?

How Long?

Be Strong, Sistah…Be Strong…

Hey, I’m only human…

I have feelings too… Just like you…

I want to be held…comforted…coddled…appreciated…intoxicated

With love and affection…and a strong erection…

Performing erotic perfection…in homage to all those times…

That I lived in doubt…struggled without…wondered why…

Hosted many a cry…released a millennium of sighs…

Waded through countless “goodbyes”…cutting ties…embracing lies…

Be Strong, Sistah…Be Strong…

Will somebody please tell me?

What did I do wrong?

Be Strong , Sistah…Be Strong…

I was born a woman…

Society’s crime…in passage of time…I nurture…

I protect…I deflect…I assure…I procure…I endure…

Your pain…their pain…my pain… I secure…

Your gain…their gain…my strain…

I can take it…I can fake it…bles-sed be…

Be Strong, Sistah…Be Strong…

It hurts so much, I could die…Can’t they see?

Are they blind…maybe? What’s happened to me?

She’s alright…she’ll get over it! She can take it!

She don’t fake it!!!

Pile it on…she won’t break…she won’t shake! She won’t quake!

Feelings of steel…a heart that won’t peel…Looks that could kill! Me, erratic?

There’s no static! I’m no tease…I’m here to please…and please…and please…

And PLEASE, everybody freeze!

I hear it coming…my mind is humming…the tune is numbing…

That same old song!

Be Strong Sistah! Be Strong…

Into the fire! To serve is your desire…there’s no position higher…

My woman…My lady…My wife…My boo…My girl…My gal…My mommy…

My “homey”…My dog…My cunt…My slut…My “ho”…My bitch…My shit…My ass…

My stuff…My fluff…My hole and tits…My friend-with-benefits…My female…

My Sistah…My Sistah…My Sistah!!!

Be Strong…Be Strong…Belong…Belong…Belong…to You….

Be true…Be true…Be true…to You….

Be Strong, My Sistah…BE STRONG!!!!

In body, mind and spirit, be forever true to yourselves…When we are true to ourselves…We transform…not only ourselves…but the world.

Insights…

Today, I learned another valuable insight on the road to self-awareness and self-realization…It is imperative to let go of fear…Fear robs one of many opportunities to grow and prosper in spirituality.  In order to grow, we must also free ourselves from “expectation.”

Part of Love’s evolutionary process is “UN-conditionality.”  Everyone…and every situation we encounter in life is rich with blessings…We must learn to “let go” and let God show us “The Way.” We as humans hold on to so much worthless “fodder” believing it to be what is priceless…Material things…Money…They are not priceless…They are the foundation upon which we build our fears…believing these “things” to be Priceless…

Love…Honesty…Truth…Integrity…Love…Loyalty…Honor…Love…Truth to Self…Faith…Love…Surrender…Unconditional…Love…Believe…True to Others…Love…Compassion…Love…Love…Love…

A few of the off-shoots of Love…

These are all branches from the Tree of Love…Yes…as there is a Tree of Life…There is also a Tree of Love…

When a realization opens up another avenue of Light within, it is then we know that we have opened up another path to the “better” of our being…Nothing compares to that ray of “knowing” that emerges…

Insights are our building blocks of Change…

When we change ourselves…we change the world.

Never corrupt Love with “expectation.”

Never measure Love with conditionality…

Never barter…compromise…or cheapen Love by manipulation…

Never violate the sanctity of Love by using it to gain…

Once you understand “The Way”, Love will unfold in all of its glory and transformation…in miracles inconceivable to human comprehension…

Insights…

Powerful realizations…

They change us…and empower us…

To change the world…

Your Life…

Your life…Have you really ever stopped everything to think about it?

Your life…What does it mean to you?

Your life…Does it have meaning, or purpose?

Your life…Do you really care about it?

Your life…Have you ever really silenced your mind to examine it?

Your life…are you living your life?

Your life…Are you full of judgments?

Your life…Is it full of Love?

Your life…Are you the self-appointed center of your universe?

Your life…Do you dwell in negativity?

Your life…Do you play well with others?

Your life…Can you share it with anyone?

Your life…Do you give selflessly?

Your life…Can you give love?

Your life…Do you share love?

Your life…Is it positive?

Your life…Do you love it?

Your life…Do you live in the Light?

Your life…Do you forgive?

Your life…Do you harbor resentments?

Your life…Are you open to Change?

Your life…is it perfect?

Your life…Is it honest?

Your life…is it fake?

Your life…

Your life…

Your life…

Continue from this moment…reflect…collect…assess…continue the questions…Isn’t your life worth the gift that it is…to challenge it…to be a contributor of positivity to be your better self?

Your life is and has purpose…everyone possesses a gift that can blind the world with its radiance and transformational power…Do you know what it is? Go within…and bring it without…Whenever you smile, you give some of it to the world…whenever you think of someone else’s needs before your own…you are uplifting the world…

You…are a reflection of your life…be aware of what you are reflecting…be aware of what you are sending out…be aware of your life…be aware that your life is yours…and you are writing your life…you are presenting the story of your life…to the world.

This gift that is your life…

Live it…give it…change it…grow it…nurture it…embrace it…appreciate it…know it…show it…humble it…offer it in service…share it…surrender it…with Love…

Your life…is Love….

Live your life with…from…and for…Love…

Throw the rest away…

This…Is your Life…..

What Would The World Be…Without Moms Everywhere….

Free Flowers Stock Photos - Stockvault.net

Happy Mother’s Day to all the mothers in the world…Life would be dismal and desolate…without a mother’s love… The love that nurtures…comforts…protects and endures…a love unconditional…absolute…and insures…there will always be someone there to love us…no matter…come what may.

What would the world be…without moms everywhere…Lost…sometimes, that’s how I feel, since losing my Mom four years ago…I long to go to her when I need a friend…when I feel lost in the madness of this world…when I need to hear her voice…

I thank God for the storage of memories…because they keep her alive in my heart…I close my eyes, and the pictures and moments begin…and my heart fills up with the essence of her being…her voice…her looks…the beautiful scent of her…the comfort and security she gave…the love…the hugs…the kisses….Happy Mother’s Day, Mom…

For those of you who still have the gift of your moms being near…and here still…give her all the love she can hold, no matter if sometimes you may get on each other’s nerves…it’s a mother’s privilege to do so…let her! When she goes to glory, you will ache for those times….

Remind her, with love, how she is the most important thing in your life…because she gave you passage into this world…one day a year is nowhere near enough to show your love and appreciation…do it everyday!

What would the world be…without moms everywhere…let’s not even imagine it!

Go…Love your moms…lavish them with thanks and appreciation…because you never know when you may just have to close your eyes…and open your hearts…to see…feel…and touch her… through memories….

HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY TO MOMS EVERYWHERE! You are deeply and forever…loved and appreciated.

Mom - Maine 2013Gerlene Mae Bangs – 1932 -2016
