‘That Thing That We FEAR But Sets Us FREE…’

‘…We Live in a Time where TRUTH has Stumbled in the Streets and Dishonesty ‘Runs Amok’…Where We accept Lies, KNOWING that they are Lies and Deny the TRUTHS…Where We tend to LOVE what’s Wrong but Hate what’s RIGHT…Where We are Afraid to be labeled ‘Too Christian’ but not Afraid to be labeled ‘Too Worldly’…Where we Throw Our INTEGRITY into the Wind but Holdfast to Our Sinful and Worldly Ways…We Live in a Time where We can’t see Ourselves because We have worked so Diligently to Be Someone or Something Else…We Live in a Time where We are Always COMPARING Ourselves to Others so as to be an -ER or an -EST among them and the TRUTH is, ‘There is No WIN in COMPARISON!’…We Live in a Time where ‘TRUTH has Stumbled in the Streets and it’s Time for it to Rise Again…’

WHY???

WHY???

Upon awakening this Morning My mind pondered the question of ‘WHY?’ I know that We live in a World/Society that is all about Money, Things, Material, Sex, Greed, Dishonesty, Hate, Revenge, Disrespect, Racism and, let’s not forget SELFISHNESS, the ‘It’s ALL About ‘ME’ and What ‘I’ Want!’ mentality and we say, ‘Well, that’s just the way it is… It is what it is!…’ But, ‘Why?’Why do We simply settle for that’s just the way it is?’ ‘Why do We just accept that it’s the way it is and it can’t or won’t change?’ ‘Why is it ‘It Is What It Is!?’

ALL of the above is exactly WHY? it is what it is and just the way it is. We tend to Believe that there is noting that can be done or are too Cowardly to stand and say or DO anything against ALL of the IMMORALITY and Wrong that We see in the World/Society today. We would rather sit back and simply accept it than to stand up and say something against it and take the risk of being Different or seem to be ‘Not a PART of the World/Society'(GOD Forbid that!), even though We know that something needs to be done.

There are Many individuals asking or wanting to know WHY? things are as they are or are simply accepted to be as they are and wondering WHY? are We so oblivious to the TRUTH and WHY? aren’t many more individuals standing up for CHANGE?

Throughout history We have seen what happens to those that take a STAND against the Wrongs and the Ways of the World/Society, Man’s Ways. Those that take a Stand or Speak Out are ostracized, Martyred, hated, talked about, alone, disrespected, Black-Listed, just to name a few and maybe that is the reasoning for so few individuals allowing their Voice to be heard or expressing their feelings and thoughts about how things ‘Just Are’ at present. This is Sad and shows how Lost We are as a People, as a Species.

Until enough individuals take a Stand and allow their Voices to be heard about WHY? things are the way they are, they will remain the Way that they are and nothing will Change for the Better for any of Us, Our Society or Our World.

My Friend, are You asking WHY??? I Am! What do You feel that We can do about it?

MLK for Today?

Listening to the radio the other day on the way to work there was a discussion about who was, would be or is the MLK for today in the Light of the unvailing of the MLK Memorial in Washington, DC. The words spoken were mixed and definitely opinionated. As I listened I wondered Myself if there was anyone alive today that was that Courageous and Strong enough to endure the type of opposition that King endured while he was alive and persevered to get his message of Equality and LOVE out to the people. It will take an Individual that is LOVING, Kind, GODLY, Strong, Courageous, Willing,’For ALL People,’ Compassionate, Not Afraid to speak the TRUTH to the Masses eventhough it might bring them Opposition and Being talked about…’ One that is not about THEMSELF or Selfish and more about the Well-Being and Betterment of others.

Martin Luthr King, Jr. was this type of individual that possessed the Heart,Soul and Soft-Spirit that was needed to bring about the Change that was needed to better the lives of ALL individuals. In today’s Society and World, I just don’t know if there is one that exist that is Selfless enough, Courageous enough, Strong enough, LOVING enough to step up and do what MLK did in his time. Yes, there are many that walk around from day to day preaching a Good game but they don’t TRULY exhibit the character to be able to endure and persevere in the face of Opposition and Hatred from the people.

Has GOD Created an MLK for Our present day? If HE has is it just not time for He/She to be revealed? Is that individual afraid to step up and speak up because of the opposition they will be met with? Is that individual already in Our midst, doing their job but We just are too Ignorant to WANT hear them?…

We definitely need an MLK for today because We may be somewhat better off but We as Human Beings have a long way to go before We can say any of Us have ‘Reached the Mountaintop’ as Individuals, Groups, a People, a Race/Races or a Society or World with ALL of the ILLS that We face and witness in Our present day.

My Friends, let’s Pray for an MLK to speak to Us and Enlighten Us to the TRUTH of where We should be and what GOD wants for Us as a Whole.

MELT…

MELT…

-‘You make Me MELT and I don’t want to be Frozen anymore!’

                                                                                -Brandon Boyd ‘INCUBUS’

While sitting at the Window the other Morning watching the Sunrise and enjoying My cup of Coffee, I witnessed the most Amazing thing, its Awesome what You see if you only look…Where I was seated on the stool near the Window, I was perched over the sink and in the sink were ice cubes that were MELTING away as the seconds ticked away on the clock. As I looked down into the sink at the ice cubes My mind began to ponder the idea of Change, witnessing the transformation of one of the ice cubes as it MELTED and began to metamorphasize into water once again as the heat in the room carressed it’s Cold outer shell.

As I watched the ice cube transform, I could see the water inside of it move around becoming liquid again, as the still frozen, hardened, outer shell retained it’s icy form, as if it was fighting against it’s Own Changing. As the ice cube continued to MELT and transform, the inside of it that had become water again moved from side to side like it was searching for a way out…It’s FREEDOM. This brought to mind how We are to Change from the Inside Out…

Like the ice cube, eventhough We may fight it, if We want Our Outward to Change, We have to Change Our Inward initially. We have to start with the Inside. We have to start with Our Hearts, Our Souls, Our Minds…Our Inner Being has to Change so as to become a Better individual outwardly. Projecting Our Best to the World.

The MELTING of the ice cube continued as I watched and the water moving around inside of the still frozen outer shell seemed to Me to be akin to the ice cube having a Soul that was determined to Change and be Free of it’s hardened shell. A metaphor for Us, Human Beings and how Our Souls long to be Free from the hardened shells that We have encased them in during the days of Our Lives and the things that We have experienced.

My Friends, let’s be like that MELTING ice cube and start to Change from the Inside Out so that We can Change into the BEST Us that We can be and project and present the BEST Us to other’s that not only We want to project and present but that GOD wants Us to project and present.

Are You a MELTING Ice Cube or are You fighting against Change to remain Frozen and Hardened?

STRONGER THAN DEATH

STRONGER THAN DEATH

 

-‘One has to find something in their Life that they Stand for that is Stronger than DEATH and with that…DEATH will
have no Power over them…’

                                                                                                -Otis Moss, Jr.

 

Sitting amongst the congregation during Easter Morning Services on yesterday and listening to the message delivered by Otis Moss, Jr. and hearing him speak on the topic of finding something in Your Life that is ‘Stronger than DEATH,’ which was a Metaphor for Christ’s being crucified for Living a Life of TRUTH and Righteousness and speaking Words that were against what many Believed, then Arising from the Dead after Living a Life of TRUTH and Righteousness, doing His Father’s Work and that being His ‘SOMETHING’ that He stood for that was Stronger than DEATH and that which in turn led Him to His DEATH upon the Cross, I began to think about what is it that I STOOD for in My Life that, to Me, is ‘Stronger than DEATH’ that keeps Me going or doing that SOMETHING no matter what opposition I come against…

As Mr. Moss continued speaking he spoke about Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and his battle for Civil Rights  and Equality for ALL and how this battle was Dr. King’s SOMETHING that was ‘Stronger than DEATH’ in his Life. During Dr. King’s battle for the Equal Rights of ALL he was met with Great opposition from those that did not want or Believe the same things he did and from those that did not WANT to hear the TRUTH. Mr. Moss spoke about Dr. King’s imprisonment and how he would not give up the battle even when DEATH was staring him in the face…

As I continued to listen to the message the idea crossed My mind that the DEATH doesn’t have to be the DEATH where Our Lives come to an End, which is what Mr. Moss was speaking on, I thought about the fact that it could be the DEATH of a Friendship, Relationship, Partnership, Union or any form of ‘coming together’ that comes to an End due to One’s standing for something that they will not give up on because it is Right,
Moral or TRUE, even when those around don’t agree and criticize them for it…

After much thought about it I came to the conclusion that the SOMETHING in My Life that I stand for that is ‘Stronger than DEATH,’ in whatever form it may come in, is LOVE, TRUTH and INTEGRITY. No matter how others might tear apart what I might Write, Speak or Believe, I simply refuse, just like Jesus, Dr. King or anyone else that stood for SOMETHING, to back down off of it. And, just like Jesus and Dr. King, it is not
My TRUTH that I stand on or for, it is GOD’s TRUTH and that cannot be CHALLENGED, no matter what others Believe or say…

 

My Friend…My Reader, ‘What is it that You STAND for in Your Life that is ‘Stronger than DEATH?’’ If there is Nothing, give it some thought…Then STAND Up…And, You will no longer FEAR DEATH of any kind…
