Embracing the Mystery

When all the words have been written, and all the phrases have been spoken, the great mystery of life will still remain. We may map the terrains of our
lives, measure the farthest reaches of the universe, but no amount of searching will ever reveal for certain whether we are all children of chance or part of a
great design.

And who among us would have it otherwise? Who would wish to take the mystery out of the experience of looking into a newborn infant’s eyes? Who would not feel in violation of something great if we had knowledge of what has departed when we stare into the face of one who has died? These are the events that made us human, that define the distance between the stars and us.

Still, this life is not easy. Much of its mystery is darkness. Tragedies occur, injustices exist. Bad things befall good people and sufferings are visited upon the innocent. To live we must take the lives of other species, to survive we must leave some of our brothers and sisters by the side of the road. We are prisoners of time, victims of biology, hostages of our own capacity to dream.

At times it all seems too much, impossible to accept.

We must stand against this. The world is a great mysterious place, and it’s possibilities are infinite, governed only by what our hearts can conceive. If we incline our hearts towards the darkness, we will see darkness. If we incline them toward the light, we will see the light.

Those of great heart have always known this. They have understood that, as honorable as it is to see the wrong and try to correct it, a life well lived must somehow celebrate the promise that life provides. The darkness at the limits of our knowledge; the darkness that sometimes seem to surround us is merely a way to make us reach beyond certainty, to make our lives a witness to hope, a testimony to possibility, an urge toward the best and the most honorable impulses that our hearts can conceive.

It is not hard. There is in each of us, no matter how humble, a capacity for love. Even if our lives have not taken the course we had envisioned, even if we are less than the shape of our dreams, we are part of the human family. Somewhere, in the most inconsequential corners of our lives, is the opportunity for love.

If I am blind, I can run my hand across the back of a shell and celebrate beauty. If I have no legs, I can sit in quiet wonder before the restless murmurs of the sea. If I am wounded in spirit, I can reach out my hand to those who are hurting. If I am lonely, I can go among those who are desperate for love. There is no tragedy or injustice so great, no life so small and inconsequential, that we cannot bear witness to the light in the quiet acts and hidden moments of our days.

And who can say which of these acts and moments will make a difference? The universe is vast and is a magical membrane of meaning, stretching across time and space, and it is not given to us to know her secrets and her ways. Perhaps we were placed here to meet the challenge of a single moment; perhaps the touch we give will cause the touch that will change the world.

‘At times, other’s Words speak better for you than your Words can.’ I didn’t Write these Words but after I came across them I had to publish them here for others to read and Marvel/Ponder at.

My Friends, Embrace the Mystery

‘That Thing That We FEAR But Sets Us FREE…’

‘…We Live in a Time where TRUTH has Stumbled in the Streets and Dishonesty ‘Runs Amok’…Where We accept Lies, KNOWING that they are Lies and Deny the TRUTHS…Where We tend to LOVE what’s Wrong but Hate what’s RIGHT…Where We are Afraid to be labeled ‘Too Christian’ but not Afraid to be labeled ‘Too Worldly’…Where we Throw Our INTEGRITY into the Wind but Holdfast to Our Sinful and Worldly Ways…We Live in a Time where We can’t see Ourselves because We have worked so Diligently to Be Someone or Something Else…We Live in a Time where We are Always COMPARING Ourselves to Others so as to be an -ER or an -EST among them and the TRUTH is, ‘There is No WIN in COMPARISON!’…We Live in a Time where ‘TRUTH has Stumbled in the Streets and it’s Time for it to Rise Again…’

MLK for Today?

Listening to the radio the other day on the way to work there was a discussion about who was, would be or is the MLK for today in the Light of the unvailing of the MLK Memorial in Washington, DC. The words spoken were mixed and definitely opinionated. As I listened I wondered Myself if there was anyone alive today that was that Courageous and Strong enough to endure the type of opposition that King endured while he was alive and persevered to get his message of Equality and LOVE out to the people. It will take an Individual that is LOVING, Kind, GODLY, Strong, Courageous, Willing,’For ALL People,’ Compassionate, Not Afraid to speak the TRUTH to the Masses eventhough it might bring them Opposition and Being talked about…’ One that is not about THEMSELF or Selfish and more about the Well-Being and Betterment of others.

Martin Luthr King, Jr. was this type of individual that possessed the Heart,Soul and Soft-Spirit that was needed to bring about the Change that was needed to better the lives of ALL individuals. In today’s Society and World, I just don’t know if there is one that exist that is Selfless enough, Courageous enough, Strong enough, LOVING enough to step up and do what MLK did in his time. Yes, there are many that walk around from day to day preaching a Good game but they don’t TRULY exhibit the character to be able to endure and persevere in the face of Opposition and Hatred from the people.

Has GOD Created an MLK for Our present day? If HE has is it just not time for He/She to be revealed? Is that individual afraid to step up and speak up because of the opposition they will be met with? Is that individual already in Our midst, doing their job but We just are too Ignorant to WANT hear them?…

We definitely need an MLK for today because We may be somewhat better off but We as Human Beings have a long way to go before We can say any of Us have ‘Reached the Mountaintop’ as Individuals, Groups, a People, a Race/Races or a Society or World with ALL of the ILLS that We face and witness in Our present day.

My Friends, let’s Pray for an MLK to speak to Us and Enlighten Us to the TRUTH of where We should be and what GOD wants for Us as a Whole.

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

DIG by INCUBUS

(This is My post for Today while I wait for INSPIRATION to tap Me on the shoulder and She tells Me what to Write next…Read the Words and Think about them…They are Truly Deep…)
DIG  by INCUBUS
We all have a weakness
But some of ours are easy to identify.
Look me in the eye
And ask for forgiveness;
We’ll make a pact to never speak that word again.
Yes, you are my friend.
We all have something that digs at us, At least we dig each other. So when weakness turns my ego up
I know you’ll count on the me from yesterday.
If I turn into another…
Dig me up from under what is covering
The better part of me.
Sing this song Remind me that we’ll always have each other
When everything else is gone.
We all have a sickness
That cleverly attaches and multiplies
No matter how we try. We all have someone that digs at us,
At least we dig each other. So when sickness turns my ego up
I know you’ll act as a clever medicine.
If I turn into another
Dig me up from under what is covering
The better part of me.
Sing this song!
Remind me that we’ll always have each other
When everything else is gone.
Oh! each other when everything else is goneIf I turn into another
Dig me up from under what is covering
The better part of me.
Sing this song
Remind me that we’ll always have each other
When everything else is gone.
Oh! Each other when everything else is gone
Oh! Each other when everything else is gone
Oh! Each other when everything else is gone
My Friend…If You are in a relationship that is Important to You and You LOVE the individual that You  are involved with, I TRULY Hope that when Everything else is Gone the Two of You will…’Still Have Each Other…’ Because, that is ALLL that Truly Matters…
