Day 72: Secular Vision


When people call you lucky, but they don’t know or can’t even understand your story….

I’m blessed and I always know who blesses me.

The tears have been replaced with smiles and laughter, but the vision you see today remembers every cloud along the way.

So if your definition of blessed equals my definition of protected and sealed, then yes, call me lucky.

If that’s truly what you see.

Day 228: Leaders


FB_IMG_1469465353159

The thing about being a leader is they always cross over the finish line. The crowd just watches them cross. Leaders are focused on attaining the goal. The crowd is focused on watching every move of the finisher.

Leaders don’t worry about the onlookers. They have mapped out the path to the finish line. The onlookers may see what a leader does, but not understand why the leader does it!

And, seeing without understanding makes it an emulation and not an experience.

Day 186: Please Retire the Phrase “You’re Coming Out” – Groundhog Season is Over an it’s Independence Day


image

Sometimes, I feel like the message, “You’re coming out” should be retired under Juneteenth.

In Texas, we celebrate a holiday of being made aware even as we sat in chains we had been pronounced free almost two years prior.

Really, it’s like being imprisoned, watching the guard unlock the cell doors, announce your freedom, hand you – your release papers, and you turning over and going back to sleep.

In life, we are already out, but it’s easier to complain than to be held accountable for producing. I cannot be called out of a prison that no longer exists, unless I lock the cell door on myself. And, that’s not captivity. That’s self-imprisonment.

Day 185: The Offering


image

I did not learn, because I took the offered advice.
Sure, I listened.
I might have even been seen taking a few notes.
Yet, the learning came from living and not just listening.

Day 184: Precious Moments


image

I did not pick the planters pot.
I did not pick the seeds.
I did not determine the soil.
I did not lay the seeds in the chosen soil.
Nor did I pack the soil upon the freshly laid seeds.
I was not there for the germination stage.
I did not witness the first leaves grow.
At the time, I did not even know.
I was a little more than a small shrub back then.

The seeds became buds.
The buds fought to become flower,
Under all the April showers.
The flowers became fruit from the original root.
I felt like pollen with each passing bloom.
Or maybe the bee seen darting through the room.

I will never be the original potter.
I will never be able to recall the plants first blooms.
Yet, I do know how the plant became a tree.
I did witness the fallen leaves.
I did witness the painful struggles as one limb became two.
I did enjoy the transformation.

And, one day the trees’ seeds will create more plants with hopes of becoming bigger trees.

It is my experience with the circle of life.
Oh, what a wonderful life.

A Lifetime Ago

My social media relationship status unless married or maybe engaged is like your time of death. Unknown by everyone except God and the Angel(s) sent to see you through.

Day 93: Knowing

Ever wonder why mathematicians insist on having you show your work. Because knowing how you arrived at the answer is a greater achievement than knowing the answer.

Day 43: I Am Beautiful


2015

 

I am beautiful.

No really, I am beautiful.

I am not just saying, “I am beautiful”.

I meant it, I am beautiful.

 

I am not beautiful alone due to the color of my skin.

I am not beautiful alone due to the contours of my face.

I am not beautiful alone due to the hues in my eyes.

I am not beautiful alone due to the curves of my hips.

My curvatures do make me sexy, but not beautiful.

 

I am beautiful, because my heart is pure.

I am beautiful, because my soul is lithe.

I am beautiful, because my words are serene.

I am beautiful, because my thoughts are motivational.

I am beautiful, because my tongue is inspirational.

 

I am beautiful.

No really, I am beautiful.

I am not just saying, “I am beautiful”.

I meant it, I am beautiful.

 

I am not beautiful alone due to the declarations of others.

I am not beautiful alone due to the color in my cheeks.

I am not beautiful alone due to my locks of hair.

I am not beautiful alone due to the bounciness of my breasts.

The bounciness in my breasts do make me exterior more attractive, but not beautiful.

 

I am beautiful, because I monitor what I spiritually eat.

I am beautiful, because I hold no malicious intentions against anyone.

I am beautiful, because I uplift even when I need to downshift.

I am beautiful, because even in acts of defense the goal is security and not annihilation.

 

I am beautiful.

No really, I am beautiful.

I am not just saying, “I am beautiful”.

I meant it, I am beautiful.

 

Are you?

Daily Prompt: The Patron Saint of Truth


Daily Prompt: A True Saint

10142015c

The Challenge: In 300 years, if you were to be named the patron saint of X, what would you like X to be? Places, activities, objects — all are fair game.

 

The Delivery:

The year is 2315. The day began like every day since 2215. The clock chimed. The birds chirped. The voices below sounded off one-by-one. Today is. The expected high temperature is. The precipitation is. There will be no further interactions between citizens and officials until quarantine has been lifted. Please remember to wear your masks of truth, your badges of honor, your crests of hope, and your shields of purpose. The official announcement of the day is over. Please begin your day as you normally would. And, remember we have our installation of the Patron Saint of Truth at noon. The festivities can be viewed remotely via direct stream or through your unembedded mobile devices. We look forward to seeing you there.

… (Noon the same day)…

As humans, we are constantly trying to live up to the promise of our ancestors.  Sometimes we succeed. Sometimes we fall short. In both cases, the underlining goal is to always remember our ancestors knew less than us, but gave more than us, just as we are expected to do for the next generation. We are to uphold our virtues so we honor their struggles, their advancements in science, their innovations in technology, and their successes in destroying the unrestrained pride genome deeply rooted in our culture for centuries.

Today marks a hundred years since EYHCS discovered the RNA molecules completing the genome for pride. EYHCS was known for stating, “At the brink of war the cellular composition just materialized as if an unseen force revealed it all before her eyes”. She refused to accept credit for the discovery. In fact, to this day if asked, she simply states, “it was divine intervention”. No one has ever been able to disprove her assertion, so it stands.

Now, as we install EYHCS as the Patron Saint of Truth, we revisit the words she delivered to the council 100 years ago today, ending the internal war of pride vs. greed.

“Council I have just left my lab. I did not even lock the door out of fear my delay could offset the tenuous balance between word vs. deed. I was hard at work looking for the final gene to break the code on pride. We have all watched our society’s infrastructure slowly fall into decomposition from the internal war of pride, grandstanding, and false goodwill. I made a promise to the creator to never fall into the trap. I ate from the leftovers of the citizens. I drink from the rivers of the Earth. I watched our citizens turn on each other. I watched our society crumb, but we never died. I turned down the politicians’ gifts of expensive jewels, five star dinners, and lavish vacations on the greatest beaches of this Earth. It was all a guise for me to stop my research. I refused. I knew as a society we could overcome the darkness settling in our community. Late this morning out of pure exhaustion I feel asleep in my lab while looking through a microscope. Awoken be a loud crash, there it was. The genome for pride loomed in midair. I quickly transcribed the data. I checked and rechecked the outcomes. I verified the genes, cells, and molecules composition. And confirmed, our divine creator had revealed the one thing, so many people had sought to hide in an effort to propagate a never-ending war. My lab assistants and I confirmed the data is real. No longer will we eat our own. No longer will we kill our own metaphysically or physically in hopes of advancing our own agendas. No longer will a dubious “I” usurp the collective. We have unmasked the secret to restore our ancestors’ original vision for our people. Going forward, we live by our words and our actions will affirm our truth on a single value: “first do no harm”.

And so, great citizens of this new utopia, we install EYHCS as the Patron Saint of Truth. EYHCS, refused to allow pride to win no matter the compensation thrown her way. Remember great citizens of the Earth, “Some things are not for sale”.
