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

image

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.

Meditation

Meditation

Today was the second week of meditation with Oprah and Deepak. I was pleasantly surprised when I discovered something about myself. This mantra today hit me where I have always lived. Wondering, what I really want. For a 69 year old who has had to work and raise two boys and support a mother in my youth,, this was a luxury I couldn’t afford to consider. Now I am retired and am finally able to take writing seriously. I never knew I could take my years of writing seriously. I thought it was just my way of coping. When I first began the meditation, and asked myself what I really wanted, my answer was to write many books. Then Depok asked us to go deeper, and I began to cry. In this quiet state of harmony with all that is, and with my hand on my heart, the real answer was, I want to matter. Who knew, at this age, I would have an Oprah ‘AHA’ moment. 

A STONE

imageI’M NO TEAM
I stand alone
I never knew I needed
This one single
Place-a stone
Strong and made of
Everything around
Me-but solid
I have gathered
Enough stuff
To make me so
There is no need for more
Black-white-yellow-brown
Circling me
Looking for a crack to enter
But I am already full
Of these-there is no room for more
It is my comfort zone
This one single place
A stone
I understand every
Story told me
I’ve been here before
Stop knocking on my door
I have closed and locked it
And the key
Is in a safe place-
This space
Overflowing with
Experience and a
Little grace that allows
The circling but none
To allow the entering
I am many
And I am one
Alone-
A stone.
