The Unicorn

unicornThe Unicorn

Unicorn: A mythical creature resembling a horse with a single horn growing from it’s forehead and with wings that allow it to take flight.

            Sitting on last evening, in oceanic thought, my mind ventured to the image of the Unicorn and the idea of such a creature’s existence. As I thought of it’s single horn, it’s wings, it’s ability to fly, it’s magical, fantastic beauty, in the form of a horse, my mind instantly turned to the idea of ‘Real Love.’ The type of love when one loves you for who ‘YOU’ are, nothing more and nothing less and I pondered if ‘Real Love,’ like the Unicorn, truly exist or if it is just a myth.

Throughout my life of 39 years and my experiences with personal relationships and witnessing the relationships of those around me it seems as if ‘Real Love’ is a mythical creature, conjured up in fantasy, only to be found within the pages of books or upon the big screen in movies. In the natural world today and  in today’s society, this seems to be fact because what we notice through man’s actions would have us believe no differently, but my heart will not succumb to this truth.

From day to day I observe people become involved in relationships, friendships, partnerships and marriages with no thought of ‘Real Love’ being the main ingredient. They enter into these unions for monetary, material, societal, and egotistical gain, for status. They fail to learn the heart, mind, and soul of the person they are merging with and without the element of ‘Real Love’ the relationships become terminal and those reasons that initially motivated them; the money, material, status, society, ego become ‘grey-haired’ and they no longer want the relationship or care to be invloved with the other individual. On the other hand, when ‘Real Love’ is the main ingredient, the motivation for a relationship, it lasts, no matter if all of those other things are there from the beginnning or disappear with time. With ‘Real Love’ the relationship is built on the foundation of who each individual is as a person, a human being, not any outside influences or circumstances, making for a lasting union.

Eventhough what we see today in society, so many not taking ‘Real Love’ into consideration, it is not the truth. ‘Real Love’ is not a fiction, it is not a Unicorn. It exist because I have observed it with my parent’s marriage, the marriages of family members and the relationships of friends and strangers. Yes, it can be akin to locating a ‘needle in a haystack’ at times because it is such a rarity but contrary to belief, its out there and its real. I am sure that GOD meant for marriages, patnerships and any other relationship that we enter into to be built on ‘Real Love’ when HE created the concept,  we only need to follow HIS way and put an end to building relationships on anything less than ‘Real Love.’

…I guess Unicorns do exist.

The True Battle…

Usa_-_FlagWe are engaged in a great societal battle, testing whether our communities, cities, states and our nation can allow itself to endure. Our battlefield is in our schools, our streets, our homes, our jobs and most of all our minds. We need to dedicate a great portion of these battlefields to finding a final resting place for the ignorance, fear and mediocrity that is threatening to ruin our way of life, the honorable and upstanding way of life and the generations that follow. We, as a people, should do this so that our nation, as a whole, can prosper and progress. It is our responsibility and it is only fitting that we should do this.

In a larger since, we cannot continue to tolerate the illegal activity that takes place around us. The sales and trafficking of drugs, the sexual promiscuity and perversion that taints our society and the lust, hunger and greed for money and material things that cause us to love things but use and mistreat our fellow man. The brave and courageous individuals, both living and dead, who struggled and who continue to struggle, do and have done it all for naught, if we continue forward as we are at the present time. If we continue forward in this tantamount fashion we are only mocking those before us that paved the way by struggling, dying or becoming martyrs to prepare a more desirable way for us.

Our society, at times, seems to forget or little notes what those, who before us, who paved the way, suffered or endured. We should never forget and should be reminded everyday by those that know and have not forgotten. Those that know, it is their responsibility, their duty, to speak of, instruct and tell the stories to those in our society that are uneducated of these facts, that they need to be dedicated to the unfinished business which those before us fought so hard to bring to fruition for our society’s advancement. It is the task of everyone here, alive at this present time, to honor those that struggled and fought before us by continuing the work that they started to make sure that those issues that threaten the forward progression of our society and our nation are obliterated. In that, the full devotion, struggle and deaths of those individuals who laid the foundation for us today will not be in vain. That this nation, under GOD, can and always will be free and that we, the people, will in no way succumb to the evils that face us today.
