Rise Up for Humanity.
As I close my eyes and drift away to a land where there is love, health, blessings and peace. I wanted to take the time to think and reflect. The truth is that I have been taking the time to think and reflect about turning points that happen within one's life. Yesterday in a Facebook post I shared the following post:
As I was writing this thought, I thought about rejections. Who has not been rejected in life? Everyone is rejected in some sort of way or fashion in their lives. Sometimes when this happens we find it difficult to formulate new relationships because of past rejections. However, I think that rejections are sometimes healthy. We think something is good for us, but really it is not. When we have felt this on our journey of life, we should simply say: That was not for me. Rejections are simply lessons for us to move towards what has been placed in the heart. Worldly events happen everyday, there are hurts that happen on the external level, but this is the beauty of the heart. Can anyone stop what has been placed within the heart? Sometimes we ourselves stop this. Yet, even when we do this, the yearnings that are within still continue to exist. This is the beauty of the heart. No one can stop what is within the heart.
Lately I have been sharing the hash tags #RiseUp, this is from the Atlanta Falcons football team. I really like the idea of each team having their own positive hashtag to share. These act as positive unifiers Even when we feel that the external hurts are much more to bear, when we unify the self with positive affirmations, we are moving away from the position of hate, hurt, or frustrations to focus on the positives. Everyone needs to focus on the positive, even if the world is shaken. We must remain strong. Whatever stirs within will release itself from the internal to the external.
In the same sense the positive affirmations that are used by sports teams can be applied to everyone. We are all seeking betterment. Everyone has goals, we must remain focused. We have to remain focused if we seek to achieve our goals. Sometimes we have to shut out the external noise. Rather than fighting an opposition, we should focus on where we are trying to go. This does not mean we should not be aware of oppositions, we should be aware of this, but it should not hinder what we want to achieve, be and do.
As students, athletes, or anyone who is trying to achieve a goal. We have to be selective about how we are spending our time. Who we are sharing our time with. We have to be selective. In other words, we cannot please everyone. This is a reality, but it does not mean that we don't care. Our vision encompasses all who desire a peaceful, prosperous tomorrow.Much of my university life has been spent studying, and focusing on our family. We become the manager or CEO if you will of our household. We are negotiating our own self - development, and being present for our family.
This is why I am so grateful for the Chicago Cubs win. The future is the children. Whatever we do today, we must seek the goodness, The future belongs to the children. As adults who are placed in a position of leadership and responsibility, we have a great responsibility to do what is best for the generations that are awaiting.
What do you want the future of tomorrow to look like?
Are we taking the necessary steps today to cultivate a brighter tomorrow?
We must think and choose wisely. We are placed with a great decision upon us. It is only ethical and moral that we choose wisely. It is our social responsibility to do so. Race, ethnicity, religion, gender or sexuality are all like a collage. The beautiful pieces that make our human family. Our future deserves the truth. With all of the knowing realities, the truths about the destructive forces that have revealed. We must decide that treachery, greed and envy should never be at the forefront when we are making a decision about the human family. We must put our human family first.
We cannot allow a treachery to continue once it has come to surface. This in itself is unethical. We are going against the moral landscape of being human, when we align the self with treason. It is the corrupt human nature at it's best. In a sense we are sabotaging future generations when anyone decides to align with treason. This is why when we are making a decision about humanity, we must put humanity first. Put the good of individuals, communities, and societies first.
Do we want to continue a cycle of treachery, treason and disgust? As adults we must never align ourselves with this.
Dedication: The words of this being are dedicated to beautiful Kayla Gomez who was 10 years old. She went missing. He remains were found. This news was absolutely heartbreaking. We send our love and support to all family members, and a community who begins to question, and digest the extent of this suffering. My thoughts to share with love & kindness.
Notes: These words were originally had written on November 5th 2016
