What They Don’t Know Won’t Hurt Them…

What They Don’t Know Won’t Hurt Them…

-‘Nothing weighs on us so heavily as a secret.’

                                                                    Jean de La Fontaine

 

As I ran this Morning, watching the Sun take its position in the Sky, transforming Morning into Afternoon, I
pondered what I would write about today. Idea after idea running through My Mind, mocking Me as I ran around the oval pathway… I thought of topics that I’d written about before, whether I should revisit them and I thought of a multitude of others that have yet to make it to My blog, to be read and contemplated by its readers.

As I came to the finale of My Morning run, thinking back on the past, while at the same time focusing on the Moment I was experiencing, INSPIRATION walked up to Me, tapped Me on the shoulder and whispered in My ear, ‘Why is it that People say, ‘What they don’t know won’t Hurt them…’ when the TRUTH is, it will do Nothing but Hurt them and that is why the One that doesn’t want them to know is trying to keep the Secret from them.’

‘Hmmm…? What they don’t know won’t Hurt them…’

As I thought more about that statement it came to Me that, just like a Secret, most of the time, along with that
statement comes an Action or something that We do that we are Ashamed of, and don’t want anyone else to know about. Like
Infidelity, Cheating, Stealing, a Fabrication, Information, anything that can cause Hurt or Pain to another and We are so Selfish and Hell-Bent on ‘instant-gratification’ and what it is we WANT that We continue on with the Action that We know will cause another consternation and We tell Ourselves…’Well, they won’t know what I did or am doing…So, what they don’t know won’t Hurt them…,’ but ALL the while it’s not only Hurting them, it’s also Hurting the individual doing the Wrong…

‘What they don’t know won’t Hurt them,’ leads to One having to Watch every little thing that they say so as not to ‘slip up,’ Lie about their activities, Hide behind those Lies, Remember the Lies so as to be able to Build upon them, Be Watchful of themselves and make sure they aren’t being ‘found out,’ Be Sly about things that they do and a plethora of other things so as to keep that Secret a Secret, whether it is to be kept from another individual or a group.

This alone, is a Heavy Weight for One to have to carry, doing ALL of these things so as not to be found out, in
addition to ALL of the other things One has to do from Day to Day but Selfishness doesn’t seem to care of those things, that is until the weight becomes too much or One’s ‘Dark Deeds are brought into the Light.’

Secrets that We hold that We don’t want another to know about, which We are actually ashamed of, are truly Heavy Weights to carry because We are Hurting Ourselves, first of ALL by having taken part in the Behavior that caused it to have to become a Secret and having to have to carry it around with Us ALL of the time. Then add to that the fact that We have to keep it from another so that they won’t be Hurt by Our actions, is akin to Atlas Holding the Earth upon His Shoulders…

My Friend…My Reader, if the Action You take or are about to take is Questionable, Wrong, Gut-Wrenching, One that will Hurt another or One that You are or will be ASHAMED of, don’t take part in it because…

‘Well…Step Off Of The Stage!’

‘Well…Step Off Of The Stage!’

-‘I don’t Want any DRAMA in My Life…’

                                    -Various

‘SHHH…’ ‘Listen…’ So many Individuals make the PROCLAMATION, ‘I Don’t Want Any DRAMA In My Life!,’ but ALL in the same breath they are in the very Midst of the DRAMATICS, searching for a way to stir-up some DRAMATICS or ‘Just Down-Right DRAMATIC themselves!’ It’s interesting that We don’t Want or Like DRAMA in Our Lives but We can’t seem to Live without it.

A lot of individuals, if they seem to be in a place where things are Calm and Peaceful, tend to get this idea that
things need to be ‘shaken-up’ or they need to persuade DRAMA to come out of hiding to make themselves feel as if they are a part of something worthwhile. Whether through Gossip, Fabrication, Breaking a Trust, Causing some Pain or simply, Becoming a part of something that entails DRAMATICS. I have come to
notice that, those that make the PROCLAMATION,
‘I Don’t Want Any DRAMA In My Life!’ the most, are the Ones that actually LOVE DRAMA the most…Feeding off of it! Creating it wherever they go! Persuading
others to become a part of it!

‘Are You sure You don’t Want DRAMA in Your Life?’

If an individual doesn’t Want DRAMA in their Life, My question is, ‘Why don’t they just step off of the Stage?’ They continue to act out their part in the DRAMA, replaying the Scene of the Production or the Movie that they
PROCLAIM they don’t care to be a part of, over and over again so as to keep the DRAMATICS going in their Life, to feel like they are actually LIVING.

This to Me is ridiculous because… if the idea is for ‘One to Live a Life FREE of DRAMA but One has been Fooled into believing, therefore actually BELIEVING, that they have to have DRAMA in their Life to feel Alive or a part of something, all the while being DRAMATIC but PROCLAIMING that they ‘Don’t Want the DRAMA in their Life,’ …who is the LIE being told to?

Think about it?

DRAMA and DRAMATICS is for the Theatre…Stage and Screen and if One is not an Actor or Actress they should do ALL that they can to avoid DRAMA because it’s ‘No Good’ for anyone. The less DRAMA We have in Our Lives the less Stress and Worry We have to be concerned with even though We have been lead to Believe otherwise…

 

My Friend…My Reader…Are you One that can TRULY Proclaim, ‘I Don’t Want DRAMA In My Life?’

 

And, if You are…

‘Well…Step Off Of The Stage!’

Al B. Sharp VS Wild, Wild West

Al B. Sharp VS Wild, Wild West!

‘Obama shouldn’t have to lead a Civil Rights March against Himself…’

-Rev. Al Sharpton

BIG Words. LOUD Words. FRUSTRATED Words. CONSTERNATING Words. WORDS from two of the Most Influential African-American Voices in America today. As I viewed the video of their exchange on MSNBC, it
brought to mind how divided We are as a Country and definitely as a race. Rev. Sharpton has his ideas and Dr. West has his. Who’s to say which of these two Voices is right or wrong, neither of them is really, but it comes down to who made the most logical point.

Rev. Sharpton spoke on how We should not place the blame on President Obama for the job market and the unemployment rate because it is not his fault. President Obama does not regulate the jobs, the people that own the companies and corporations are the ones that regulate and have the POWER to stimulate the job market. As President, all that Obama can do is try to PERSUADE these individuals to create jobs and bring about job market STIMULATION. Rev. Sharpton also made a valid point when he said, ‘The People need to stand up and make their Voices heard to the individuals with POWER over these companies instead of continually pointing the
finger at and blaming President Obama…But the TRUTH is that they are SCARED to do that…And, ‘If the People are SCARED, say that they are SCARED…’ because blaming Obama isn’t going to bring about the results that We seek.’
I feel, as Rev. Sharpton feels, that, President Obama is doing his best to make sure that things are done EQUALLY across the board for ALL People, not any specific race or group because this Country and Nation is a place of many Cultures, Races and Peoples, and as President he has to STAND for ALL not ONE…

Dr. West had some valid points as well but I noticed that most of his statements were a bit RACIALLY CHARGED. I mean, I am ALL about STANDING up for Ones Race or what One believes but this is simply not a matter of Race, this is a matter of Humankind as a Whole, the BETTERMENT of everyone. The unemployment rate in not just affecting African-Americans but every Race, it does not DISCRIMINATE and We should see it as such. Yes, there are times when it seems as if President Obama should have stood his ground when it came to certain topics but turning this into a ‘BLACK THING’ or a ‘RACIAL THING’ is not what is needed right now. The statements that Dr. West had about, ‘Critiquing President Obama…’ and ‘The number of Blacks that have been pulled over by Police in NY…’ and ‘Worrying about Rev. Sharpton being manipulated by the White House and PlutoCrats…,’ discuss those topics in other venues but not in this one. This should not be turned into a situation of, ‘We NOW have a Black or African-American President so We, Blacks, as a Race should be receiving Our ’40ACRES and A MULE!’ Our ‘REPARATIONS!’ And…Honestly, if We got them what would We do with them if We are IGNORANT of what to do with what We have been Blessed with at Present. Another thing is, ‘If ALL One wants is a Mule and some Acreage, their Goals and Aspirations are pretty Minimal!’

Both Rev. Sharpton and Dr. West have and continue to make Great contributions to Our Society, Country and the African-American Race through their beliefs and what they STAND for, and I ADMIRE and gain INSPIRATION from them both but with the topic or issue being unemployment and job market stimulation, the idea or job is to get Our Country not simply ‘Back On Track’ but on ‘The BEST Track its Ever Travelled ON,’ bringing about jobs and employment for ALL…EQUALLY…And, we will only achieve this feat by PERSUADING the People with the POWER over job market stimulation and not by Blaming or Pointing the Finger at Our President…

My Friend…My Reader…President Obama isn’t PERFECT and He’s doing what He can with the tools He’s provided…

Like Rev. Sharpton said, ‘Why should President Obama lead a Civil Rights March against Himself?’

‘Rev. Sharpton and Dr. West…Thank You both for the Words and the Inspiration. The work that You do is Priceless, Appreciated and Admirable.’

The UNION Is In A STATE…

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!
