2021: The Coming To Our Senses.

2021: The Coming To Our Senses.

      Because it's still true. "You don't know what you have here. You simply don't know what you have." I doubt if anyone really understood what he meant. He was obviously speaking about America and telling us we did not appreciate what it was.  -jacob needleman      As long as this body [...]

Learning to Live Loved.

Learning to Live Loved.

It's something you don't understand until you're ready to understand. Second graders aren't ready to understand calculus. And that's important to mention because you don't give up - you keep going - until you understand. She* was talking about her beliefs and said, "I didn't trust Love." Those words came to me like a power [...]

The Oppression Connection.

The Oppression Connection.

If I really wanted to participate in social change for all - to heal the oppression for all – if I really believed in unity for all – and we the people – I’d  have to go nowhere other than looking into my own eyes to see what wants to be seen.     It’s [...]

Enough of Not Enough

The small-mind of me, the higher-mind of me, and everything in between. My so-called soul and spirit. Holy it all is. [...]

Emancipation.

Emancipation.

Soul-Emancipation To free my soul from mental and societal constraints. To free my soul from trivial pursuits. Free from insignificance. To free my soul from worthless matters. Free from biological and psychological pollutants. Free from the embedded atmosphere of toxic intoxication. Free from the useless rhythms of the mind. And from that which stagnates the [...]

Scriptures, Swine, & Shame

PICK UP YOUR MAT John 5: 3-9 Do you want to get well? Goodness asked. And I did not hear. I hate my life. I hate my life. I hate my life. And Truth reminded me - I don't hate my life -  I hate my current life circumstances. I have hate for my existence, [...]
