‘Who am I to settle for just reaching the Block when I can Reach the Globe? Be Courageous and Reach BIG!’
‘Who am I to settle for just reaching the Block when I can Reach the Globe? Be Courageous and Reach BIG!’
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?

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?
The TRUTH…Nobody’s Listening! (Continued…)
As I wrote on yesterday, We ALL say that We want to have the TRUTH told to Us but We can’t seem to take it. It tends to be too much for a lot of Us. I feel that We have become so accustomed to the LIES and the telling of LIES to Us that We have come to a point where, even though, the LIES are hurting Us and keeping Us from progressing individually, relationally, socially, SPIRITUALLY, nationally and Worldly, that We are simply
comfortable in the LIES. Then, when We are offered or are given the TRUTH it sounds so foreign to Us that We tell Ourselves that it can’t be TRUE, ‘IT,’ as they say, ‘Hits Us where it Hurts!’ and We run from it because We don’t like the way the TRUTH makes Us feel. Our Toes ache, Our stomachs churn, Our Minds reel, Our Egos are bruised, We begin to question Ourselves and/or the TRUTH compels Us to look in the Mirror, with tears in Our eyes knowing that We should be questioning the LIES that We feel to be fact. So much consternation caused by the TRUTH but it’s what We need…
We awaken everyday of Our lives to LIES, whether through the media, Our family and friends, people that We meet and worst of ALL, the LIES that We tell Ourselves, when the TRUTH is in Our face beckoning to Us to accept it. We even attend Church, the very place where there should be nothing less than the TOTAL TRUTH and receive LIES. We fall for these LIES or settle for them because We want acceptance and the approval of
others in Our lives. We don’t want anyone to think that We are different or that We see things in a different way than they do, which would cause Us to be on the ‘outside’ of the circle. (Oh, No! Can’t be on the outside of
the ‘Circle of Acceptance.’) Everyone from Presidents, to Leaders, to Ministers, to Preachers, to Teachers, those that We are to TRUST, and Us, not telling the TRUTH so as to be accepted by the masses, a SAD case indeed…
But, those among the People, the ‘TRUTH TELLERS,’ who are far and few between in a world of carbon copies, the Ones that don’t allow the acceptance of the masses to keep them from telling the TRUTH…The Ones that know that the telling of the TRUTH will in time Free Us ALL from the LIES that plague Us…The Ones that don’t mind being called ‘Fools’ or ‘Different’ or ‘Unusual.’ The Ones that are told that they should ‘Just give the People what they want or what they can handle,’ which is what is hurting them anyway, and continue to offer the People the TRUTH, even when they hate it and are pointing the finger back at them for the telling of the TRUTH that ‘Stumped their Toes.’ The ones that those that don’t like the TRUTH, try to do ALL that they can to silence or to deter them from the continued telling of the TRUTH. The ones that see the TRUTH through the LIES in front of them and have to keep the Courage so as not to fall for the LIES themselves as they are telling the TRUTH…
My Friend…My Reader…Think about this. TRUTH or LIES? Which do You want to be told?
(To be continued…)
The TRUTH…Nobody’s Listening!
-‘The TRUTH…You can’t handle the TRUTH…’
-Jack Nicholson ‘A Few Good Men’
-‘…You don’t want to hear the TRUTH…So, I’m going to LIE to You…Make it sound Fly to You…’
-Ceelo Green/Goodie Mob
-‘Talk to You so Clearly but You don’t Want to Hear Me…Tried to give You WARNING but You just Ignore Me…But, Nobody’s Listening…’
-Linkin Park ‘Nobody’s Listening’
The TRUTH…Everyone says that they don’t want to be LIED to and that they ONLY want to hear the TRUTH but when You try to offer them the TRUTH they get upset or bent out of shape, ‘TOES STEPPED ON,’ and would rather hear the LIE that they have fallen for for so long. Its time to tell and hear the TRUTH, eventhough its DANGEROUS to tell the TRUTH sometime and most of the time the One telling the TRUTH is ‘quieted,’ but the ‘Telling of the TRUTH’ is the ONLY thing that is going to FREE Us ALL…
(To be continued tomorrow…)
The UNION Is In A STATE…
During President Obama’s State of the Union Address this Evening, January 25, 2011, he will discuss investing and or spending, and the topic of investing/spending for Education will most likely come up. This topic of discussion seems to have caused some consternation amongst Republicans in past months because they don’t see the need for investing/spending on education. This to Me is ridiculous because it seems that EDUCATION should be at the top of the list of things to invest in for America. Educational Investing/Spending would allow everyone to get an optimal education making America, and Americans, more competitive in a World market and putting individuals in a better position as far as being prepared to handle or live everyday life.
‘Why shouldn’t everyone have the best Education they can get?’
I’ve heard it said that some don’t want the ‘minorities’ in America to have the BEST Education that they can receive because it makes them too competitive in our Society and causes them the chance to advance. Minorities should just continue to be IGNORANT, never have Unity and continue committing GENOCIDE through violence, drugs and sex. ‘Competing with whom? Other Americans…?’ I hear this and Pray that it’s not a TRUTH, that it’s only Blindness in the eyes of a few, but then I’m most likely ‘Hoping Against Hope’ and will be the one that is Blind…
If the statement that I heard is TRUTH its Terrifyingly Sad but what’s more Saddening than that is the fact that Minorities fall for it or play right into it because of their actions and the way that they choose to live. Now I understand that a lot of individuals amongst the number of Minorities believe that they have to choose the way of life they live because ‘someone’ is holding them back from obtaining an Education and allowing them the opportunity to advance in life but this type of thinking or belief has to STOP or CHANGE because as long as Minorities have this mindset, knowing that another person or group doing ALL that they can to hold another back is Wrong and the fact of Minorities BELIEVING it as TRUTH amongst themselves is Wrong, things will never CHANGE or get better.
When we, Minorities or anyone for that matter, sees that they are being WRONGED by another it is not the time to be quiet and just allow it to happen, believing it as TRUTH and playing into it…Its time to stand and do ALL that you can in a Civilized and Peaceful manner to find a resolution that will work for ALL involved. As long as Minorities continue to do as they have done and continue to do at present, playing into the LIE and making it TRUTH amongst their numbers, not saying to themselves, ‘This is enough! This cannot be the way things are supposed to be! It’s time to take a stand and bring about a CHANGE for the better for ALL,’ things won’t CHANGE, like President Obama hoped and pressed for in his campaign and Education will not be what America chooses to Invest or Spend its money on.
And, anyone that has the belief that ‘You will be better off by holding another back, whether individual or group, by whatever means you try to stop their progression,’ you are Wrong for thinking you should or could do this to another and your ‘COMEUPPANCE’ is around the bend.
People…America…We need to ‘Wake Up,’ come together in Unity and bring about a CHANGE for us ALL or we’ll forever be LOST!
