THEY HATE US BECAUSE WE ARE BLACK

THEY HATE US BECAUSE WE`RE BLACK !

Black people all over the world are damaged by laws, traditions and beliefs that cause fear and loathing of anything that is different. We have run away from this condition in many ways. Unable to find where we belong until many of us can’t find our way back home. Some even hate the skin that they feel created this dilemma, unable to face the truth that they will never be accepted by some. We are not diminished by another’s image of us, we can only be diminished by the image we hold in our own minds of ourselves. It’s not real.

I have often wondered why people are separated by color and other orders of so called value. White, Yellow, Brown, Red, Black in that order-men and women, adult and child. None of this indicates human beings who should be treated exactly the same, with the same value. I remember someone asking a Darfur woman why did she think the Janjuweed were killing her people. She replied, “They are killing us because we are Black!” She said this in a matter-of-factly response. That is what the four little girls in Birmingham would have said

Even Secretary Condi Rice wondered “why they hated us so much”. Her statement recently was a memory she has of the day she felt the shock of the bomb blast when she was a little girl.

We tried to stop the killing of these people, who suffered and are still suffering and send some semblance of help, but we cannot change the color of their skin. This is their sin and ours. Here in America we think we have made it because we can now live where we want, drive what we want, eat where we want as long as we have the money to do so. But underlying that is still the distaste for the color Black by so many people who are called,Christian, Politician, teacher, police officer, judge, jury, landlord, mayor, governor. We can never change the color of our skin, or their hearts. Only individuals can change their universe. We live in the universe we create. We have a Black president by the grace of those who don’t understand the differences their parents declare are real. Let’s hope everything that diminishes any person is destroyed by becoming obsolete and unthinkable.

I have often wondered WHY we got here. If we believe that G-D is omnipotent and omniscient we have to acknowledge this universe condition is no surprise to him/ her/ IT. And since that must be true, this has always been a temporary situation not an eternal one because all matter is temporary. And since G-D’s Intent is eternal, we are still BEING and we will never stop BEING. This is the only thing that life is. ETERNAL. There is no life outside of G-D and G-D is eternal life. If this is true, there is no where for us to go except back to our Eternal origins. We can never be separated from that. Even now we are connected to it-whether we KNOW it or not. Truth doesn’t depend on what we believe. Truth doesn’t change. We can change the way we chose to see it, or experience it, but we can never change truth at the G-D level. We each have the power to change the universe we individually live in, but the eternal being that G-D is never changes, it is all that it ever needs to be. I am speaking in inadequate language because there are no words, languages, intellectual level that is able to explain this infinite BEING. SO, DON’T WORRY. It has all been designed to return us to our source, and that is only a good thing. We all end up in the same place regardless of our color.

All of our lives are full of contradictions-upside down. Good has been bad and bad has been good. Good people have down bad things and bad people have done good things. Where white has always meant right and black has always meant wrong. Where we have had to adjust ourselves to fit some one else’s image. Even when we know it will make no difference when all is said and done. It’s not that we blame the white man for our own failures, but he should stand up and admit the many failures of his own because we are affected by them day in and day out. His economic system, his medical system, his police system, his court system and his government system. None of these systems belong to “we the people” just to “some” of the people.

Some fair-minded individuals recognize the futility, we feel it together. The plans to take away the ability to vote for who we think will represent us all is demonized by outright lies that we all recognize as another “Jim Crow” mentality. They hate us because they think we will finally give them what they know they deserve. I wish there was someone who was fearless, and bold enough to say ‘to hell with all this nonsense, we know what’s right lets do it’. Are they all cowards? Who are they afraid of?
When all else fails, I chose to trust the magic that is the universe. I chose to embrace who I am and how G-d made me. We are perfect, though our actions may contradict this. We are still evolving into and becoming more than being human. We are evolving into recognizing ourselves in each other beyond the color of our skin. The brutes who refuse to recognize this will be trampled underfoot. We are evolving back into our beginning once more. Maybe we’ll get it right next time.

I just read an article written by a young Black man entitled “Why I Hate Being A Black Man”. Though I understand how some could construe this statement as self loathing, I don’t . Having raised two young Black sons, I know how threatening the world can be to a young Black Man. We spend their entire childhood praying them through school and that nothing untoward happens to them. It’s like guiding them through a gauntlet. Then as they become young adults, you pray they will make choices that lead them to a productive life and given a fair chance in the world. This is why Black people pray so fervently. We see no other help but God. Every good and perfect gift comes from our believing God opens those doors for our children to get a good education, a decent career and able to make a descent living.

This is our introduction into our world. We are told to raise ourselves up by our own bootstraps as those in authority hide the straps. We are told we are lazy, and being left out of the main stream, we depend on them for a job. But even with all of this and much more pushing us back into our place, we are still here. We have to believe we are exceptional because we now have a Black President, Attorney General, and Security Adviser. We have held out for the highest and best, there still are those who believe we don’t qualify.

I know being Black in America is not easy, but its a lot easier than slavery. We lived through that, we can live through anything. Even a little name calling. If jobs are scarce, we create our own and patronize our own communities. We become a force to be reckoned with at the voting booth. We overcome and there will always be those in our world who will stand up with and for what is fair on all sides.

IMAGINE A NEW WORLD

Imagine a world

We are more than what we seem. We are light beings who are co-creators. We create. We create the life we choose. We create the world we choose. We create . We create the universe we choose. We are creating everything we are experiencing Right now.

Can we imagine and dream a world of peace? Can we imagine a world of light and grace? Can we imagine a world of joy and love?

Imagine a world so beautiful the colors vibrate with music. Imagine a world that sings in harmony with every person, animal, flower, tree, stream, river, ocean, breeze, and element.

Imagine a world so filled with peace the lions lick your hand and nuzzle your leg as you go on safari. Imagine a world with on need of zoos and vets. Imagine a world without war. Where we loved all life together. A world filled with joy at its highest vibration. Imagine a world without borders. Where we trusted our neighbors so much we no longer need police officers and armies.

Imagine a world so filled with light there is no need for the sun. A world that emitted light from every flower, tree and blade of grass. Imagine a world where thought was an immediate action. Where we blessed one another continually and all our hopes and dreams were for the best for all.

Imagine a world that vibrated in harmony with the cosmos. Where the music of the universe could be felt and heard. A world where every breath filled us with health and life. Where the waters were so pure, fish could be seen swimming even into the bottom of the ocean. Waters from the deep that knew when to moisten the soil and feed the plant life.

Imagine a world that loved the earth mother. Imagine a world that no longer needed protection. Imagine a world that knew everyone was perfect. Where Justice and liberty was a natural course of being. Where every person emitted inner light and love like waves of perfume.

America’s Undertow

Something is wrong in America:

When policemen completely dismiss the concern of parents over the murders of their sons and explode in “righteous indignation” at the assassination of two of their own.

When an entire race of people are treated with disdain and when someone wants to speak about it, it is dismissed as the ” race card”.

When the “powers that be” set up systems and institutions that incarcerate our children, husbands and fathers on a whelm and call it “Equal Justice Under The Law”.

When “children” are afraid of those who should be there to protect them.

When “Apartide” is not something “over there” but is practiced silently right here in our “Homeland” by other names:

Separate but equal
voucher systems
Ghettos
Prison (can you say Slave Labor)
Youth camps
Religion
Job Interviews
Access
Inequality, the list goes on…

When “The Powers That Be” keep secrets that “we the people” have “voted them into office” to make sure are not kept from us.

When we are lied to and our interests are not carried out in the way we have been told they would be during election years.

When the rich have become so rich, everyone else is dismissed as “gad-flies” and completely ignored by those who want the last bit of dignity the people hold.

When other countries can claim our land, water, oil, rights and whatever the “Powers That Be” decide to give them and we have only the President to protect us.

When the air we breath poisons us and our water catches on fire and our food is made in a laboratory.

When we have lost “faith” in our Spiritual Leaders.

When all the people are still talking about who “matters” in the year 2015.

We the people need to wake up and recognize true power is vested in the people, but the people MUST speak out.

We must not be silenced just because someone made sure a “union boss” would be the tool they used to try and out shout you in the “guise” that he thinks his issue outweighs yours.

We must not be silenced just because “they” have kept the status quo in tact all these centuries. If ants can move a rubber tree plant, we should be able to move “The Powers That Be”.

These are just some of the things that are pulling at the foundation of this country. We are more alike than we are different but we fear what we don’t understand. If someone tells you the same thing over and over again, you might begin to believe them until you see for yourself it wasn’t true.

We must question everything. Discover the truth for yourself. Find out what the so called “other” is really like. You may be pleasantly surprised.

Happy Holidays

I remember how we used to celebrate holidays. So much expectation and wonder. Family and friends coming together to share a feast and old stories. We truly loved the time we spent together and seldom were disappointed by those relatives who we knew would drink too much or embarrass the family. We made a point if participating in food distribution, either by delivering turkey dinners to families in need or helping to serve the homeless at shelters and churches.

Today, I really miss those days. The children are grown with families of their own and spread out over the nation. We are retired now and usually eat our Thanksgiving dinner in restaurants. This year we decided to make a full meal at home, with the help of the complete meal in a box and a little love added. Yet, this makes me feel empty. We NEED to share with others. We NEED to give. We are most fulfilled when we give to others, in fact, we are more blessed ourselves when we do. The feeling can not be described only experienced. I believe it is why we are here, not for ourselves but for each other.

This will be the last time we miss out on sharing our Thanksgiving meal. Maybe my children are no longer around, but other children need to have someone to share this special day with.

HAPPY THANKSGIVING EVERYONE. GOD BLESS YOU ALL.image

Spiritual Feeling

Alethea:

As we become awakened to truth, we remember what love feels like and realize this is our Happy Place.

Originally posted on streamofconsciousness:

I think we have forgotten how to feel. I think we have forgotten how to lay down against the cool grass with arms and legs spread open and muscles at ease, face toward the warm sun and rocks under our backs. I think we no longer can recall the way water feels when it asserts it’s momentary strength onto man when he dips his hand in and for a moment, the water holds on. I believe we no longer can look up to the clouds or at a mountain and quiver under the colossal presence it possesses reminding us that we feel vulnerable. I think we ignore the wind on our faces, pretending it does not make our hairs stand on end because we do not know how to interpret the beauty in that truth. I feel we have grown detached from the world and each other, that we are…

ALL YOU NEED IS LOVE

One thing for sure is that radiation doesn’t care how rich or young or beautiful you are. It will completely end you along with the poor and destitute. We have a radiation problem right now because of the Japanese meltdown. That radiation has covered our planet and is causing our water (all of our water) to be contaminated.

We need to do something TOGETHER that will impact our world. Because if you are dead your chance to effect a change on this planet will end. This will cost you nothing but your heart? We can use our ability to LOVE to create a greater force of light to correct the imbalance and raise our vibration to its highest and best purpose. If you are honest, you know something is happening. You can feel the change in the world. I know you have heard this before, but perhaps you didn’t take it seriously. It’s time to take it seriously.

However you relate to the Source of All That Is can create the change. If you believe in crystals, use as many as you can and infuse them with prayers of love and healing. Place them in the earth, water, around your house. Wear them as pendants and rings. This is real. We are all from one source, we need to behave as the ONE that we are at this crucial time.

The earth needs to be healed along with its people from war, destruction, contamination and hatred. LOVE is the answer.
