Prejudice Ultimate Evil

The over whelming majority of all people around the country regardless of race would never kill or even seriously injure another person regardless of their race.. Also the majority of the country isn’t even racist for the most part. So why it is that a murder like the Trayvon case has everyone freaking about racial conflict in the US. The Trayvon case was a tragedy. It was a tragedy that happens every day to all races of people. No matter what the racial status of the perpetrators is, No matter what race the victim is, it is ALWAYS a tragedy.  If we had a media that reported the real news instead of pumping up hype to get ratings things wouldn’t be getting a racial slant at this point.  We have a sick “might makes right” mentality in this country that is perpetuated not only by our useless media but by our “might makes right” mentality of our government. Maybe instead of finding where we stand on this we should find where we can come together and stop the cowardly, barbaric mentality that is actually destroying us.

We are at a place in our society and the world where we find ourselves unable to trust our government or our media so we have to think and trust ourselves. Welcome to the real New World Order

The real enemy is Prejudice of any kind whether it is sexism , racism, our class system (yes we have one) and our propensity to play behavioral follow the leader instead of thinking thing through ourselves.

Decision

I gaze upon and eagle while standing at the door

I look again behind me not sure I want this anymore.

The eagle’s life I knew to be tranquil and so free

I look behind me once again it’s sure not that way for me.

I remember my flight with the eagle flying high above the crowd

Detached from turbulent emotions and egos screaming loud.

I watched as people attacked each other aiming for the heart.

I noticed the people that professed their love quickly torn apart.

I asked my friend the eagle why do you think they act this way.

He said they crave protection they don’t know any other way.

You see they never rise above and see the world I see.

They feel a life of beauty for them can never be.

They just need to relax their mind and follow their own heart.

For if they did this one small thing their lives would have a better start.

I listen to him intently and then asked what am I to do

Do I go back in to my path my friend or stay out here with you

He looked at me a second, thinking of what to say

Your mission of life is not about keeping things away

You’re here to live among them and help them to see the light.

To show a way to live their lives with out a constant fight

You can do your best to understand and help them find a better way

But if you choose to join them, then fighting will fill your days.

Remember the sights you’ve seen flying here with me

Take it with you now my friend and help them all to see.

Tell them of the sight you’ve seen the beauty from above

That they to can see this too they just have to rise above.

I pondered what the eagle said as I stepped back inside the door.

I think I’ll live my life from now on not fighting anymore.

I’ll try to live life gliding the way the eagle does.

To do my best to live my life balanced, with strength and with love.

I looked around with this conviction amazed at the sight

The world that looked so dark before had completely filled with light.

The sight of brightness helped me put my hard feeling down to rest.

So now my path is clear I understand my Quest.

To help people find their way to the future that they seek

To help them find a way out of pain and strength for when they’re weak.

Cross Roads

Cross Roads

The spirit of a man began to stray

From within the body in which he laid

It traveled the ethers and rested where

There was a sleeping woman with silken hair

He stroked her hair, she made a gentle sigh

A smile returned, among the tears she cried

He stroked her cheek, she dreamed he cared.

She snuggled close, she felt him there.

Her heart was full her love was back

She dreamed her world was bright, her life intact.

He said, my love it is up to you

The time has come. What will you do?

My love is here my body’s not.

We both learned the lessons the spirits taught.

We know our love is strong and true

Time is now love, it is up to you.

She felt the truth as he explained

It is time to stand up and make a change.

He held her close, made her heart melt

She reveled in, the love she felt.

Then with a start she felt the lack

a weak, cold hand had touched her back.

The gray world was back the spirit gone

Her lonely tears continue on.

A Message

Its 2 am and I’m sitting here typing on these keys

As visions, words and scenarios spin inside of me.

Sleep thus far evades me as I think of what they mean

I know I’ll never sleep a wink, till I’ve told you what I’ve seen.

I see treachery and bigotry, poison food in all the stores

While people we hired to keep the peace use lies to sell us war.

Our children are used as pawns, as their lives were about to start.

They are sacrificed there needlessly leaving families torn apart.

Health care only for the wealthy, justice bought and sold by phone.

Schools teach competition, but understanding is never shown.

They teach pride in school and football plays.

But a class for tolerance is not the way

If you’re not happy take your pill today.

It is a robot you will be one day.

That’s just the way it goes.

Then the disasters came and millions died for them help would never come.

Then the economic tapestry began to come undone.

Corporate thieves and politicians pretend each other is to blame.

The society has destroyed itself like a Phoenix in its flame.

During this vision I wondered why it had to be this way.

A voice said, people won’t make a stand, they’re afraid to have their say.

They find their peace in ignorance, false images in their eyes.

They find solace in political rhetoric as their planet starts to die.

Vote for change they’d always shout,  our needs you have to meet.

The only change that’s ever made is who occupies the seats

Then the scene began to change as dust settled on the land.

A world of understanding came as new leaders took a stand.

The voice said these leaders,  are nothing like the ones you had

They have no greed or prejudice they know why things got bad.

When they saw the changes coming, they tried to warn and educate.

All they could do was share what they knew and then stand back and wait

They addressed the abuse of animals and came to their defense.

They tended the needs of the common man, and put injustices to rest.

They fed hungry people the best they could.

Collecting donations from whoever would.

When a protest was needed that is where they stood.

They did their very best.

Now they will lead this world to the place it needs to be.

A place that compassionate behavior is what people expect to see.

No more will virtue,  be seen in cold and greedy acts.

When the masses show integrity the will be no changing back.

The scene disappeared completely

but the voices went on to say

you saw a piece of the future but the work must start today.

Angel

Angel

 

Angel went to her husband and said “Rob, I have it bad

I used to look like the girls you see in Victoria Secret ads.

I remember the way you looked at me in awe of what you’d see

You acted shy and stuttered a bit the first time you talked to me.

You couldn’t wait to hold me close when we would go out on a date

You called me just to hear my voice; no longer could you wait.

Now when I look in the mirror I see changes that I can’t bear

I cover wrinkles in my face and wash gray out of my hair.

My breast aren’t pointing out they way they did those years before

Now if I go without a bra they point right to the floor.

There are other changes I have seen too depressing for me to say.

I worry with me looking this way how long you will want to stay.

Maybe I need a doctor to make me look like I used to be

Just a few thousand bucks for some lifts and tucks so you can worship me.

Just a couple of little implants and maybe some Botox for my face

And then when it’s over and I have healed, twenty years might be erased.”

Rob looked intently into her eyes thinking of what to say

He held her close and whispered “Love, it’s really not that way.

You’re right I was drawn to you because the way you looked before

But the time we’ve been together has uncovered so much more.

You are right I was really nervous the first time you talked to me

But now your soft and soothing voice helps to comfort me.

I don’t call you daily to hear your voice but it’s not that I don’t care

Your voice is always in my mind and I am grateful that it’s there.

You want the doctor to make you into what you were before

You say you want to do it so that I will love you more.

We’ve been together most our lives but it’s like you don’t know me

Listen now to what I say; there are things that you don’t see:

You never see me watch you, as you lay near me fast asleep

You never look deep into my eyes and see the love I feel so deep.

Or feel me gently touching you and stroke your soft dark hair

I touch your soft smooth skin, thanking god that you are there.

When you are away you never see this thing I often do

I hold your pillow close to me wishing that it were you.

I see you hide your body ashamed of what I see

You never believe me when I say you always look good to me.

I would never leave you; where on earth would I want to go?

You’re part of me and I am part of you; I love you more than you could know.”

negative thought

When it comes to negative thought or energy you have two choices

1.you can stand strong and face it with the strength of the light which always conquers the dark.

Or you can weakly hide behind you hands like a two-year old and pretend it doesn’t exist.

Just a Thought

Just a Thought

We are bombarded with so much information every day especially

Through the media that many of us relinquish our power to the aggressive and just go the way of the hypnotized masses

We have forgotten it is possible to love and support the people in the military  but loath and stand up against war.

It is possible to be proud of your country but have disdain for the antics of its government.

Controlling how much others affect YOUR life doesn’t make you a control freak

That there is a difference between having boundaries and having walls

You can face negativity without perpetuating it.

Peace by negotiating to mutual satisfaction is REAL Peace

Peace through aggression or war is merely dominance

Forced respect is an illusion.

You can fight without aggression.

You can love without submission.

See fear as a challenge to be conquered Instead of an excuse to submit.

If you defer without participation to someone else to solve a problem that affects you, then you are part of that problem.

Remember that the Universe has the information but the truth is in you.

 

 

 

Our responsibility

I heard yesterday that a well-known metaphysical venue in the north Texas area has been allowing a “practitioner” they absolutely know to be corrupt (not here say) take part in their events because this “practitioner” is well-known they are afraid they will talk bad about them to others.

I know this particular venue and although I will be braving the wrath of the finger pointers and the rumor makers. (Scary thought huh)

Let me say this to them.

Your Fear is understandable rumors and cloaked character assassinations are common when you stand up for something like this. And although you can avoid this by

Saying  Karma will take care of it.

Or

It is not your place to judge.

But the fact is when you became a venue for metaphysical/spiritual learning and healing you took on the responsibility to keep your cliental safe from cons, creeps and thieves.

Doing so is not judging,  I am not advocating that you publicly attack this person. You do not have the right to say they are good or bad that would be a clear judgment. But you do have the right to hold back your support of their practices by not  exposing your patrons to their smoke, mirrors and false rhetoric.

If you take the stand with someone and they personally or professionally attack you, just know the people that know you won’t care and the rest will get over it.

If we all take these types of positions and stand our ground with integrity the cons and shysters with fall back into the shadows without taking the reputation of the whole metaphysical field with them.

Remember the almost mainstream acceptance that metaphysical practices is slowly achieving makes it prone for this type of behavior ( even worse than it was) let’s not let this nonsense ruin its progress and push it back into the shadows.

We have a responsibility here.

Just my opinion.

Whew this is going to irritate a few people   l.m.a.o
