KEEP GOING…
Because someone else doing better depends on YOU doing better. YOU are going through without being recognized and going hard without recognition for a REASON, YOU are not just DOING IT for YOU!

Resurrection (some thought)

(An excerpt from some thoughts I had on Easter)

res·ur·rec·tion (rz-rkshn)
n.
1. The act of rising from the dead or returning to life.
2. The state of one who has returned to life.
3. The act of bringing back to practice, notice, or use; revival.

What is certain and “real” is that WE exist. Some of us have totally different viewpoints, beliefs, and faith(s), traditions, routines, and custom. Perspectively, YOUR GOD and MY GOD may be two separate entities and so is how we morally and mentally navigate these lives afforded us and I understand that. But listen, RIGHT NOW, at THIS MOMENT IN TIME, we ALL need a RESURRECTION. WE -some of us individually are okay or at least think so- as a people need to COME ALIVE in the REALIZATION OF NOW and ACKNOWLEDGE what REALLY IS. So WE MUST DIE to certain things. WE must be crucified of certain things. WE must be held ACCOUNTABLE and then made to bear certain things. And after “certain things” are “come to pass” and made known then they can be exposed and exampled for the deliberate purpose of blue printing a process for those of “US” who come after US and are POSSIBLE because of the “THEM” of US that came before.
The story of Christ as has been and is continually told perpetually into the ages has never met a time such as now. A now of an Internet and Information Age that corporately attacks the scepters and particulars of intellect with clusters and compounds of ideas and thrust into our imaginations profound options of thought and plethoras of different elements in histories once known certain to our learning. There are suggestions made easily available now that disrupt the once sturdy foundation of how we had been taught and how we had learned the “story” of Easter, the significance of Christ in particular. I’ve seen in the past few days on social media platforms an abundant supply of alternate systems of thinking that qualify as the “truth” about Easter and its origin and how it has come to be observed as it is currently.
That is why it is not important. That is why it seems to be more talk than tradition, more about fashion than being about the fabric of our lives. Because the “story” may or may not be “correct” as we have known it we have come to not accept it so much and Instead only accentuate the pieces of it that comfort the conveniences of our lives. I recognize how easy it can be for this to happen.
And so have we come to now. I get that “we” don’t agree on much these days. I get that we don’t find in one another much reason to adjust our “perceptions” enough to “play fair” as it relates to coming together in order to facilitate a process and procedural effort of getting ourselves in order. With all of this information available we have come to accept “differences” all too much so much so that we expect them to such extent that we enable the differences for the sake of not being uniform per invasion unto our individuality. It’s almost better to be “different” instead of collective because outstanding behavior (by definition) seems to bring with it outstanding benefit and byproduct. And we have come to announce that we can not exist effectively for the cause and consideration of our particulars and specifics. I view these things that bind us, be it race or religion or “retail value”, as distractions in our vision of what is undoubtedly before us. Because the truth is that WE exist. The truth is that WE are human. The truth is WE need a resurrection.

Different [POEM]

Different…

The darkness hides my tears well
and so I dwell inside of myself
cloaked inside of my own failure
in spite of myself

Feelings left to bare the loneliness
of being only just an only self
leaving me to breathe silently
but only help

Wondering if I could ever be
maybe something else
a someone who had known better
or just…

DO NOT WAIT for others to ACKNOWLEDGE YOU where YOU can make YOURSELF known; People tend to “know” YOU relative to how much they “know” about YOU. YOU might never “meet” greatness waiting for someone else to INTRODUCE YOU.

YOU must not only do something “about” change in order to realize a difference in YOUR life; YOU must do something FOR change, something WITH change, and something TO change. It is not enough to be INSPIRED, YOU must be INTENTIONAL!

I wish… [POEM]

I wish that my brothers would dream and come alive in hope while witnessing the come to pass of every plan he’s wrote,
I wish that my sisters would believe and rest assured in trust while experiencing the point of it all that explains the meaning of enough,
I wish that my sons would grow and find every chance in life while becoming men that afford such to their children and thus living existing in right,
I wish that my daughters would be found while losing sense of having to be and instead identifying in self and establishing peace while exuding belief,
I wish that my friends would be authentic and stand firm in who they are while challenging me to the better as our differences fall apart,
I wish that my teachers would be examples and give me credible reasons to pursue while offering a curriculum of my best interest and giving me leadership as its due,
I wish that my pastors would be flawed and hold themselves to a standard of me while congregating the word with their walk so that in a sinner a sinner can believe,
I wish that my family would be family and as a family come together in sync while as a family covering stable our bloodline as a family and not just surrendering to defeat,
I wish that my leaders would be followers and think like humans towards solution while ignoring urges to be monsters neglecting the effects of material pollution,
I wish that I could just have wishes and not choices that lead me to see that while I can want as I want for forever, the only thing I can want for the better is me…

What gives YOU the “right” to be happy is the DELIBERATE PRACTICE and DETERMINATION that YOU utilize to ACT on and upon OPPORTUNITIES. Make sure that no question about who YOU or YOUR INTENTIONS are is “left” on the table.

YOUR “feelings” do not guarantee that YOU will be “felt” nor understood where it pertains to YOU being taken seriously; Use YOUR feelings to force YOU into action. Make sure that YOU “feel” it then GO, DO, & BE for YOUR reason!
