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?

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…

More&More

MORE&MORE…

‘More&More…More…More…’

-R. Kelly ‘More & More’

As I sat at the window this Morning enjoying My cup of Coffee and watching the Amazing Movement of the Morning as it performed it’s Natural progression into Afternoon, I wondered what I would write about today. As there are always many topics on My mind and many things that I continue to want to write about, I had to search Myself, My Mind, My surroundings for Inspiration. As I watched the Shadows continue to shift outside the window with the continued ‘higher-rising’ of the Sun, having a bag of M&Ms staring back at Me from the counter, I thought of the topics of LOVE, Truth, Education, Fear, Our World, Relationships and a plethora of others. Then I looked back at that bag of candies and I asked Myself, ‘M&Ms, as if they would reply, ‘What are you saying to Me?’ ‘What message is hidden in your Sweetness, your Rainbow of Colors, in your Logo?’, and right there it hit Me…

M&Ms! More&More!

That’s what it seems we ALL want, right? More&More…More&More money to spend on Wants! More&More things to label Our Worth! More&More attention to feel that We matter! More&More time to do ALL that We want to do and accomplish Our endeavors! More&More education, not to Learn but to Earn!  More&More people liking us so that we feel that We are Important! More&More hours in the Day so that We have time to
accomplish More&More Goals! More&More hours at Night so that We can rest Our bodies after trying to do More&More during the Day…

Its ok to want More&More when it’s for the Right reasons, actually it’s a GOOD thing to want to better oneself and progress in one’s Life but to simply want More&More for selfish reasons, or to have others say how successful you are, or because one is not Grateful for what GOD has Blessed them with or to want More&More because one feels that THAT ‘ONE MORE THING’ is going to bring them that Happiness that keeps eluding them is, I won’t say Wrong but I will say, ‘It’s for the Wrong reasons!’

More&More doesn’t bring One Happiness and if it does, it’s Short-Lived not permanent Joy. More&More doesn’t make One worth anything because Nothing outside of Us can make Us more than We already are and if it does, One has fallen for the ‘LIE.’ More&More doesn’t make One any more Important than the next One, if so; One has an elevated and ‘CONCEITED’ idea of themselves. More&More doesn’t make anyone Like or LOVE One anymore than if they had less and if it does those individuals are around or One’s Friends due to the More&More that they are in possession of.

More&More…

ALL of the Wanting of More&More is truly a searching for and a Longing for More&More LOVE, which is what We Truly Want. No matter what anyone says, LOVE is what We are ALL in search of and Long for and that is the reason We strive for More&More, thinking that it will bring Us or offer Us that LOVE. When that LOVE that We want continues to elude Us We look for LOVE in More&More Things, Money, Status, Material,
Situations, Opportunities, Associations, etc., ‘Imitations of LOVE’ but none of it will take the place of the Real Unconditional LOVE that We seek from GOD or from those people in Our Lives that LOVE Us or will continue to LOVE Us whether We have More&More or not.

More&More, just like the M&Ms Candies in the bag, it might be Good to you but continuing to eat More&More
from the bag or get More&More in your Life doesn’t mean that it’s the BEST for you or Your answer for LOVE

My Friend…True Happiness and Joy isn’t found in More&More outside of Us, it’s found in Unconditional LOVE from GOD and HE adds the More&More in Your Life that You really need.

‘Will Your More&More melt in Your Hands or will Your More&More last Forever?
