Greetings my peeps! I haven’t been talking much these days, at least not at this blog. I haven’t abandoned this space tho. My life is just taking me through a lot of emotional twists and turns is all.
It’s interesting how one can have burning passion for doing a certain thing, then that passion wanes, and in its place another rises. Three years ago, I was on fire for the medium of blogging. But now my fire is at a very low glow, like that glow that’s covered with ashes in the fireplace that can’t be seen unless one shifts the ashes around a bit. Then, the reddish glow is exposed.
That’s been my blogging vibe these past few months. I still have thoughts and things I want to talk about, but many of them get no further than my mind. I’m talking notes on some of the stuff so that I can jump right back in the blogging mix when the spirit hits me again.
I have not completely shut down, as I’ve been spending most of my blogging time on Facebook, interacting with folks in that forum. And this past week it has been a very interesting place, with so much passion from many of my fellow Americans. From those who are rejoicing, to those who are in mourning, America is definitely “that place”, and Americans, “those people”!
But in the midst of it all, what we cannot deny is that this place called America, is undergoing radical and major changes. Changes in its ideology, in its appearance, in its heart to its people. Barack H. Obama has been a great polarizing force in this business of change. But America has not gone forward in a peaceable manner. For that reason, America has been walked down the plank of CHANGE, and pushed off. It’s the kind we can believe in, as the saying goes.
The American people voted for this change and they won! And it will be up to them to implement this change. Now is not the time to get lazy and think that “the other person” will do the heavy lifting of change, nor should we expect President Obama to part the Red Sea of change with a magic rod and staff. This change take each and every one of us to do our part. It’s practical work that will make it work.
Sadly, many people have been emotionally terrorized into fearing this change, and they are in deep mourning right now. They fear that “their enemies will remember them” as Glen Beck stated so melodramatically. All that people want is a fair chance to live, not to take revenge. If a poor person has a choice of revenge against who has harmed them, or an opportunity to uplift him or herself, they will take the opportunity, and simply forgive.
In all of this, I believe that a great veil was ripped, exposing the cold hearts of the super greedy. Hearts that are two sizes too small. Tiny Grinch hearts. It’s this cold bloodedness, that has bamboozled so many white Americans into believing that people of color are their enemies. Too many have bought into this lie too deeply. The truth being brutally unveiled may be more than they can take. Have they, the white Americans, been tricked? They so believed in the lies of the super rich. But they have been exposed, and the good people with spiritual eyes to see must come to terms with what they are seeing.
Yes, America is changing, rearranging, and the time just may have come where she is forced to live out her creed, in real time and in deed. The Dream may be coming true, by any means necessary.
