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?

Still Believe…

‘Even in this Society of Greed, Hate, Ignorance and the Idea of LOVE and LOVING being a THREAT…I Still BELIEVE that LOVE is going to be the VICTOR…’

SUCCESS: Is It Really Green?

MoneySUCCESS, IS IT REALLY GREEN?

                Why is this image the badge of success? Is this everyone’s idea of success? Success, is it really Green? I fail to believe it is or has to be…

            Money, in today’s World, if you have it you are labeled as ‘SUCCESSFUL’ because with that money you have the ability to buy cars, elaborate homes, name brand clothing, take trips to exotic locales, be in VIP, do many things that you could not do without it. Is this actually the sign of success? All this shows me is that you are successful at spending the money you have obtained and this clouds people’s vision about what success is and what it is they should be in pursuit of to gain success.

            Success doesn’t have to be in the form of money or in the form of spending it on material things. One can be successful or find success in many ways, such as; one can be successful at being a great parent, as a team player, as a graduate from an addiction program, as a gardener, as an individual that goes through therapy and comes out on the other side a better person or simply going through their life and not succumbing to becoming a statistic or through status quo. None of the above has monetary value attached to them; simply a feeling of accomplishment and that to me is success.

            The pursuit of success in the form of money in today’s society, I feel, is the root of so many of the ills we face in our society. The chasing of the ‘ALL MIGHTY DEAD PRESIDENTS’ causes so many people to turn to whatever means possible to gain that level or badge of success, in the form of crime, dishonesty, the abuse of other people and the selling out of self. We have instilled in the youth, as well as adults, that if you do not have money you are not successful or that you won’t be a success until you have money. This example leads to greed and selfishness, tainting our humanness and our equal treatment of others.

            It should be pressed upon all of us that success comes in various forms, not just money. Success is a ‘feeling’ that one has about his or her accomplishments in life. If money is your idea of success, then that is your prerogative but don’t be fooled or frightened into thinking that is the only form of SUCCESS.

            …I pray you all success in whatever form you find it. Remember, it’s your success and no one else’s.
