LOVE ISN’T TO BLAME…

LOVE ISN’T TO BLAME…

‘Upon reading the ‘Washington Post’ on Valentine’s Day there was an article that posed the question, ‘LOVE…Why are We drawn to it? Why do We seek It and Want It?’ Simple! Because LOVE is what GOD Wants Us to do. Yeah, We can Fight against It. Flee from It. Fear It. Hate It. Speak Pessimistically about It. Feel that LOVE/LOVING makes One weak but the TRUTH is, We ALL Want and Long for LOVE‘s Touch upon Our Lives. GOD has placed in each and every One of Us the Want for anoher Individual to share Life and LOVE with. And, Everything that We do, mostly the Wrong things to acquire It, is a Seeking for LOVE. Yes, many of Us say that We have been hurt by LOVE but LOVE doesn’t Hurt because IT‘s PERFECT. We, People, Men, Women are the source that cause each other the Pain by having Wrong motives and being Selfish and then it looks as if LOVE is the culprit. (It’s so eay for Us to blame LOVE.) LOVE is the Greatest of Them ALL! GOD is LOVE! We ALL Want LOVE! It’s time to Stop making LOVE a MONSTER that will bring about Our demise and grasp It and allow IT to be exactly what IT is…PERFECT…And, allow IT to bring into Our Lives exactly what We ALL Want…Joy…’

LOVE, My Friend, IT’s PERFECT!

For Fathers…

For Fathers…

Thinking about many of the issues that Women have in relationships, issues they have with Men and many times with themselves, I came to the conclusion that much of it has to do with the relationship that they had or have with their Fathers. A lot of the issues stem from the fact of if their Father showed them LOVE, said he LOVED them or if he was actually in their lives. During My 40+ years of life and having been in a number of relationships with Women from ALL walks of life one thing stands TRUE for ALL of them, if they had a Good relationship with their Father and he displayed to them what a LOVING, Caring Man should be to them, they possessed the ability to receive LOVE openly but on the other side of the coin, if their Father was not there for them or was there but did not display to them what a LOVING/Caring Man should be, they had issues with receiving LOVE openly, being vulnerable, knowing their roles as Women in a relationship and they carried years of unreleased anger with them.

Women, this is not your fault by any means, the blame falls upon the shoulders of the Fathers that did not or do not step up to the plate and be Fathers to their Daughters. Fathers, We have to stand up and take our places as the Fathers that GOD has blessed us to be to our Daughters and LOVE them like we are supposed to. We have to LOVE them, show them LOVE, tell them we LOVE them, live the example of a LOVING and Caring Man so that our Daughters will know what to look for in a Gentle-Man and not fall for every man that shows them attention, the wrong type of Man, know their TRUE worth as a Woman and know what LOVE really is.

I have made a pledge to GOD and Myself to be the Best Father I can be to My Daughters so that they won’t have
to have the issues that plague so many Women and causes their relationships to falter, not possessing the ability to openly receive LOVE. Fathers, we have to LOVE our Daughters because they will only LOVE how We LOVE them. Let’s prepare them for success in their relationships.

Human Maps

I was reading over some New Poems and wanted to share this one with You until I put the finishing touches on My next post. Enjoy, My Friends…

Human Maps

Lines

Routes

Paths

Not Drawn upon Paper

But Sketched upon Human Bodies

Tattooed upon Skin

Maps Drawn over the Years

Living Hieroglyphics

Not Painted upon Cave walls

Or Drawn on the angles of Pyramids

By Neanderthals or Egyptians

Painted Naturally through Living

Being Alive

Not by the strokes of a Brush in Hand

After being bathed in Color

War Wounds…

Markings of Life…

Upon Skin

Human Lines

Human Routes

Human Paths

Human Maps

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?

Time Will Reveal…

Its Amazing to Me how people can come up with ALL types of excuses or reasons to justify their Sinning or Wrong Doing. For some reason many of Us seem to think that Jesus’ dying on the Cross gave Us FREE-REIGN to Sin as much as We like and then simply ask for Forgiveness and ALL will be ok and BEAUTIFUL with the World. This is So far from the TRUTH! Yes, its TRUE that GOD Forgives Us Our Sins but HE also tells Us in HIS Word, ‘Flee from Sin…Run from it…Keep as far away from Sin as You can…The wages of Sin is Death…,’ this to Me means that We should not Sin. And, Yes, We are ALL Sinners…Born into Sin…We have ALL Sinned and Fallen short but after We ask for Forgiveness of those Sins We are to keep away from those Sins that We have asked Frogiveness for. GOD LOVES Us and wants the best for US, HIS Children, but if We continue to choose Sin HE will have no choice but to discipline Us through HIS LOVE for Us. When We Sin or continue to choose Sin GOD never leaves Us, HE allows Us to have to deal with the consequences of Our Sins so that We will learn from them and hopefully, through Our ‘Consequence Learning’ We will choose to stay away from Sin. It is never GOD that leaves Us, it is Us that steps away from HIM to do as We please, by choosing Sin over Fleeing from Sin.

There are many that choose Sin and actually ask for Forgiveness during the actual committing of the Sin. Talk about CONTRADICTION! Thats Man for you, right?! How can One know that an act is Wrong in GOD’s Eyes, continue to take part in the act and ask Forgiveness ALL at the same time? I guess that individual feels that Sinning in this way makes the Sin a ‘Little White Sin.’ (What the Hell…)

My writing this post comes from reading more on the Bishop Eddie Long case and thinking of ALL of the individuals out there that have Sinned and are Sinning and might feel that their DARKNESS won’t have LIGHT Shined upon IT…Oh, My Friend, the time for Your Sin to be revealed is coming, just as everyone’s Sin in days past have been revealed. Be assured that if You have Sinned or are Sinning GOD will not and does not allow Sins to go unpunished. Whether We have a feeling that Our Sin is justified because it ‘Feels Good to Us’ or ‘Our Sin is out of Revenge or Anger’ or ‘We have asked Forgiveness during Our Sinning thinking that makes it Ok’ or ‘We have a LOFTY idea of who We are because of Our title or status’ or ‘We feel that the World owes Us something,’ the Sin that We commit will be Revealed and GOD will allow Us to deal with the consequences until We learn from those Sins, no matter how long Our learning or disciplining takes. 

My Friend, We have ALL Sinned and most of Us will continue to Sin, for One reason or another but GOD is continually calling to Us to choose to ‘Flee from Sin…’ so that HE won’t have to discipline Us and so that We won’t have to deal with those consequences that We Truly don’t want to have to deal with from the start.

I’m continually checking Myself …What are You doing to Flee from Sin? Or are You choosing to Sin because You feel You have Free Reign to do it?

How Much?

How Much?

 

-‘What People Do For Money?’

                        -Divine Sounds (1984)

 

As I was riding along the other day this song came on the Radio and I really focused on the Words as the artist sang them, unlike back in 1984 when the song was played I was most likely break dancing or rapping along as the beat flowed from the speakers. Upon hearing the song this time, at the Young age of 40, I really listened to what was being said and the Words spoke to Me like they were saying, ‘Wow, Bishop! It’s interesting and at times Sad what many People will do for Money or things pertaining to Monetary or Material Gain…!’

As the car rolled along and Divine Sounds continued singing, ‘What People Do For Money?!’ and I sang along with the chorus, I began to think of ALL the things that People Do, Have Done or Will Do for Money and it simply caused Me to shake My head from side to side in a ‘NO!’ motion, as if someone had posed a question to Me that I was totally against. I thought of how some People will… ‘Step on others,’ ‘Degrade themselves,’ ‘Become somewhat of a Slave to another,’ ‘Bow down to another,’ ‘Allow themselves to be Abused,’ ‘Sell-Out,’ ‘Commit Murder,’ ‘Take part in Criminal Activity,’ ‘Steal from others,’ ‘Take part in an activity that they are Uncomfortable with’ and ‘Allow their Physical Selves to be taken advantage of,’ ALL to have Money, keep Money or be in the Midst of those with Money or Material.

Sing it with Me…’What People Do For Money?!’

I guess I just don’t understand why some People don’t think more of themselves by knowing their Personal Worth, which would keep them from doing ALL sorts of things for Monetary Gain. Many People simply allow their Morals and Integrity to ‘Fly Out of the Window’ when they feel that they might Lose out on obtaining Money or when they feel that they will Lose the source of their ‘Cash or Material Flow.’ I guess, too, that when so many People allow Things or Individuals outside of them to give them Worth, they have no other way to feel Valuable other than by DOING ANYTHING to feel that Value, even if it is subjecting themselves to Degradation.

 

My Friend…My Reader, think about it…’What Have You Done or What Would You Do For Money?’ Would You ‘Sell-Out?’ ‘Have You or Would You jeopardize Your Morals and Integrity?’ Or…’Do You know Your Self-Worth from the start?’

 

‘How Much?’ I hope that You don’t have a PRICE…

THERE IS NO FAILURE!

THERE IS NO FAILURE!

 

-‘FAILURE does not exist…’

 

I don’t believe in FAILURE! I don’t believe that it Exist! I can’t even see or Imagine FAILURE. Why? Because, I believe that TRYING alone is Success! We tend to feel that if WE don’t receive Payment, Accolades, Rewards, Notoriety, Status, Stardom or Recognition for Our Endeavors, We haven’t Succeeded but in the TRYING itself We have Succeeded at doing something. TRYING is Doing! TRYING is Succeeding! TRYING is actually the Act of not Believing in FAILURE! That alone is Why One will TRY something… If You TRY at something, no matter what the outcome or what those around You might say about the outcome of Your TRYING, You, My Friend have SUCCEEDED…And, if You did not receive the outcome that You were searching for, by ALL means…Keep TRYING and SUCCEEDING because…

My Friend…My Reader, No matter what You think or have had Pressed upon You to Believe…

‘The Only FAILURE is Believing in FAILURE and not TRYING!’

 

THERE IS NO FAILURE!

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.’

-PM Bishop
