Hope you are enjoying the start of your weekend. Happy Birthday to celebrants this weekend? Happy Anniversary and please stay safe to those of you at risk.
It occurred to me in just this moment as I am reviewing posts on IG and on WhatsApp that there is mass confusion in the air. It is deliberate and strategic. If you’ve ever read The Art of War, you would understand that politics and politicians are one and the same. It really doesn’t matter their color or association. They are ALL driven by the same lust – Money and ultimately power.
You ask yourself well why did they promise this or that? Well beloved that’s what politicians do. They are fishers of men, they know how to bait and tackle . It’s their innate sensor which has been highly tuned for survival of the fittest.
People choose political parties and hang all their hopes that they will do right by their vote. I have news for you today. They don’t care!!! It’s a corrupt and vile system which is oiled and tuned by one sound and one sound alone ….the sound of money and that illusive power.
You wonder what it will take for them to get it right? Well like a serial killer it’s the temporary fix, but they will kill over and over again until they are caught. The only way for the madness to stop, for the unnecessary death of our votes is for us to choose our own dollars in our communities.
The world of commerce is very global and not turning back. Your choices of where you spend your dollars and with whom is still relevant. Do your research and ensure the vendors you support, support you in some way. It must have an impact, even if it is a trickle initially.
Stop spending your votes on candidates who do not give a rats#%£ about you, your community or your next generation. Just look around you, if the state of affairs does not speak volumes to you, I don’t know what it will take to wake you up.
I learned many years ago my life is what I make of it. Good, bad, and otherwise will happen – that’s just life. I’ve had a difficult time reconciling death I must be honest,, and it takes me a long time to get over the loss. As a believer I understand about life and death and our power over it, but I am still human, so I go through the process of grief in my own way. That said, we all grieve in our own way even for those who are living. Relationships lost, relationship which you’ve never had a chance to have. But here’s the best part I’ve also learned- for every loss there is a gain. You only need to take time to grieve to get to that place where you can actually allow yourself to see what you’ve gained. I cannot articulate it for anyone. For each of us it’s something or someone different. Grieve no more beloved, and walk into the life of gain which He has established for you.
Solidarity Friday beloved. I hope you are all being safe in spite of it all. Do not let this warfare steal your joy, your peace nor your humanity. Keep your crown on and know that this too shall pass. They can’t keep their foot on our necks as long as we empower ourselves the right way. First don’t allow all the breeze which blows to sway us away from what’s important. Remember, media targets us so they can divide our opinions, watch us squabble like chickens over stupid and senseless issues, while distracting us from the real issues. So stay focused, stay informed, and put your money where your mouth is- in the black community. #blacklivesmatter
I’ve been pondering on what to write about and how to put into words how I’ve been feeling these last couple of months.
I’ll start by saying, I hope you are all ok, and have not been too impacted by loss.
I know it’s been trying times akin to warfare. But, like war we must fight to survive and combat the enemy until we emerge victorious. Nothing else is acceptable. So keep on your masks and gloves. Follow all the sanitary guidelines about washing hands, social distancing as best as you can. This is not over so don’t let your guard down.
Like flora we must stay resilient and emerge brilliant, beautiful and ready to shine looking healthy and actually having a stronger immunity than before.
Continue nourishing yourself properly and stay hydrated. Be well beloved
Understand some of the injustices black America snd the rest of the African diaspora suffers through.
We do not need handouts, we’ve never asked for handouts. Let’s begin by treating each other as equals, and giving us what’s due to us first in the form of reparations. Every other ethnic group had gotten theirs EXCEPT the black man.
Why is that? That is the question! Do you have any idea? I would love to hear your perspectives.
When you look at the damage inflicted on black America via media, politics, one should begin to have a clearer understanding why we are so adamant about doing our own thing. Every single attempt to integrate, normalize or be like every one else is met by violence. See for yourself :
These images clearly show black southern migrants being burnt, tortured, beaten and chased out of their homes. Why?? Fear blacks were taking too many jobs and in effect disenfranchising the white, planted population. Sad as this is, it is a historical black spot we should all remember.
The above video details all the pictures by EJI or Equal Justice Initiative.
Discover the truth about who you are. Never allow anyone to tell you who you are or are not. Don’t believe the controlled narrative. You are not inferior. In fact you are equal. Once you learn this, you can now understand who you really are . Who you are did not begin with slavery. Dig deeper.
