I Have Something To Say


I Have Something To Say

I was hurt yesterday by something that I saw. It broke my heart and ruined my entire day. Today, however, is a new day…and I have something to say.

Sitting quietly, cautiously, careful to not cause ripples in the water…does not contribute to peace. Still water grows stagnate; disease grows there. We must make waves. Waves washing against the rocks will smooth the rough edges. Waves wash away the old and bring in the new. The movement of water is a necessity of life. Our bodies and this world are comprised mostly of water. Water and the frequency it is motivated by; can tame the savage beast.

Gandhi, a man of peace, did not sit by and do nothing. He took a stand. Even in Gandhi’s way; he said NO MORE. Gandhi did not emulate still water, but the waters of change.

Peace is imperative, but it cannot be achieved by sitting quietly and screaming, in silence. If there are riots all around you and you sit quietly…what did you contribute to? Being idle…can be complacent. You may not be brandishing a firearm; but NOT TO CHOOSE…is to choose.

It is our responsibility to stand up and speak out. When we fail to do this, because we don’t want people to look at us harshly…we are thinking only with our ego. Our ego gives us a false sense of security. We are supposed to maintain this Creation. To sit by and say nothing when your heart screams to do something is similar to; being given a potted plant to take care of for a month. You have the plant and you can clearly see that it needs water, and everything inside you tells you to water it. However, you decide to just watch the plant, as it withers away. We are given the responsibility of maintaining this beautiful gift of Creation. We are supposed to love it, nurture it and treat it with gentle care.

My daughter cried when the hurricane destroyed trees in our neighborhood, a few years ago. She lost sleep. It literally broke her heart. What she found more disconcerting however was the fact that people made remarks similar to “it is just a tree; there are more trees that can take its place.” My daughter, my child understood this one truth …every man, woman, child, and blade of grass is accounted for. There is no one greater or of more value on this earth…than anyone else. One is not more important than the other and to think that is not true…is “The Greatness Fallacy”.

What causes the greatness fallacy? When we start believing the lies we have been telling others. When we start thinking that we are all that we need in this life. Sometimes we can be so busy patting ourselves on the back that we forget…we have been gifted this life…not GIVEN this life. What is the difference you may ask? A gift is unexpected and undeserved; you did nothing to receive the gift. You did not sparkle or shine any brighter than anyone else…but our Creator had confidence in your ability.

Let us not forget that we are only here for a short while and we must spend that time wisely. We must seek our purpose…or be patient while it seeks us. We have a responsibility to get our work done.

We must not get too comfortable here…this is not our resting place…it is not home. It is a place of embracing one another’s differences. For what happens all too often is that we will be so busy building walls; we are forgetting to mend bridges. We are not supposed to sit around and make lists of how we are different; and use that list as a means of isolation. For there will come a time when we will be called on and asked…how we contributed to this gift. We will stand all alone; and what good will that list of walls be then? I doubt our Creator will be concerned about the differences of the heart or mind…for our souls are divinely grounded.

Many have sought Gandhi’s peace; but TRUE peace is found within us all. We are often fooled by words that have been used erroneously. We seek inspiration. How many times must we hear someone say, they are looking to be inspired? The word itself tells you…inspiration is within us. We just need to find it and watch how our path illuminates.

I have great hopes for mankind. I, like you, have watched the atrocities that are going on. I have seen police officers beat men that appear to be doing little to nothing. I have watched veterans come home to a country that seems to have no problem leaving them homeless. I have seen stories where parents have abused and neglected their own children. I have seen us selling poison on the streets, for the hopes of a dollar. But I have seen the waters part and the hopes of a better day beginning. I know that it is always darkest before the dawn. I have no doubt that better days are ahead of us; but I must tell you…we must work for them.

We must stand up for those less fortunate. We must speak out on behalf of those who may be too afraid to speak. We must be the hero that we are always searching for. Don’t spend so much time adorning the man in the mirror that you forget that he has a purpose.

Be mindful in your speech, you use your delightful words. Being a beautiful person in speech and heart…takes nothing from you. Give to others…truly become your brother/sisters keeper. Support one another…and shine Our Creators light wherever you can.

Remember in a world that is caught on fire…you may be our only hope.

I hope you all get a chance to listen in on my radio show…here is a link to my show about HOPE

HAPPY NEW YEAR
As party glasses are passed round
Waiting for twelve to strike the clock
I wanted to give thanks for the gifts
We were given non-stop
The laughter we shared
The tears we wiped away
The beautiful people we met
And those who passed away
The life we protected
The heart we mended
Yes, this year was…
Undoubtedly splendid
The light we shone on issues
The candle of hope was lit
The company that came by
Bringing cheer with each visit
The man across the street
Who found his smile that day
Those angels dressed like strangers
That we have met along the way
There were troubles in this year
But today I think of them less
For some burdens must be set aside
Giving our tender souls a rest
So on this New Year’s celebration
Which I have dedicated to you
Thank you for your love
I celebrate that too
May we all learn today
What our yesterdays are teaching
Some darkness will exist
But may our troubles be fleeting
May we all laugh a little more
May we speak a little less harsh
May we be reminded of our blessings
As we gaze upon the stars
May we walk hand in hand
May we give patience a try
May we use more HELLO’s
And a lot fewer GOODBYE’s
May we treasure the gifts
That we all tend to forget
May we value each sunrise
And the gift of a sunset
May we all just agree
That we can do better this year
And hold close those loves
That have grown to be so dear
May we have celebrations of life
And burn God’s flame all night
May we wish one another
A year of Love…and Light
So on this New Year’s Eve celebration
I drink a toast to you
For the blessings yet to be seen
In all that we will do
May we protect a child
May we try to understand
Love is shown with our hearts
Not a heavy hand
I send you love filled with LIGHT
And Hope filled with Praise
May we all show kindness
I wish you…God’s Grace
As we move on into 2014
I wish you laughter and cheer
May your cup over flow
Happy New Year!!
