If it isn’t evident by now, so many communities have been fragmented, family units have been all about destroyed, and frankly, no one cares outside of their own back yard anymore. This goes beyond color, economic class, beyond nationalism. It’s only Tuesday, and this week has erupted with events that have been simmering a long time, both literally in Nepal, and figuratively now in Baltimore. It’s heart breaking that the bigger issues are being ignored in favor of TV ratings and sparking division especially in the US. There are systems at work deceiving you, encouraging this in an effort to control you, and we all lap it up willingly and say, “Oh, they deserved,” almost in vain. Even if you aren’t religious, the message of treating each other as you would yourself, or simply taking a step back to try and understand where the other person is coming from should be understood – if not a universal truth. You don’t have to step foot into a Holy building to understand that. I encourage everyone to not only continue to pray for peace, but work together more to take back our freedom, and take back our futures from what they want to consider a “reality.”
It’s Sunday night, and that means preparing for the upcoming week. I can’t believe April is almost over!
I hope you have a wonderful week! 😎
There comes a time in all of our relationships, whether it’s friendships to the most serious of relationships, and sometimes family, where we have the thought of if we are on the same page, or we are ready to start on a new course. We often look for clues and suggestions from the other person because that fear of rejection can be overwhelming. Sometimes we need to step out on the limb and ask the pertinent question: Are we really at the same point?
There is always the mantra of picking ourselves up after the dust has settled, in an effort to coax us into getting over difficulties easier. What if the dust never really settles, as you are constantly reminded of the past, therefore you can never really let go? Some cultures believe that we never really leave things behind, they are always a part of us – even the Bible reminds us of that as well in various contexts. We may be forgiven of the sin, but still carry the weight and memory of it – lest temptation reigns supreme and we are back down that hole. But what about when we have to say, “It’s finally time to move on.” Where does that now lead us to move on to? Another person? Another town? Another memory? A lot of us may move on, but we may move on to the same issues packaged in a different environment or person.
