Spiritual/Spirituality

I am tired of the word "spiritual," because the masses are using it every chance they get. The word spiritual , used to have a lot of magical energy attached to it but now, it really doesn't invoked any positive feelings for me, in fact, I cringe when I hear it. Occasionally I still use it but I am working hard to find a new word that describes the magical world that I live in. So many have flocked to this so called spiritual life path but most of them seem to be doing it for profit and I don't have anything against that as long as I get my money's worth. Do not hang your shingle up if you just got into the so called "spiritual life," last week or, two to three books ago. I mean, you can hang it out but do not expect me to show up. There are many wonderful teachers on the planet right now that are trying to help with this great cosmic shift that is occurring and I love being in their presence but at the same time there are also what I like to call, spiritual pimps, who are rushing to the forefront trying to make money with their superficial understanding of the universal laws. They use the word "spiritual/spirituality" in every sentence just to try and trick you into thinking they are the real deal and they have managed to taint the meaning of this once beautiful word. So, personally I am abandoning my use of the word spiritual/spirituality.

Feeling a little stuck

I am feeling a little stuck and I am anxious to move forward but I don't want to force it because, just maybe things are moving the way they should and all I need to do is, take a deep breath, exhale and let the magic unfold. I am creating my reality and this is the part where I just stop the fuss and let it all simmer to perfection.

Forced Role Models

I hate the whole idea of role models because this title is usually forced on the individual that has achieved something wonderful in their life and once the masses find out about it, they attempt to covet what is not theirs to claim. The individual who has worked hard to reach their goal is then told that they owe their success to the group, their race, the collective, the mob and now, it is their responsibility to give back to the community. Oprah loves to tell people who achieve greatness that it is their duty, she says, "to whom much is given, much is expected." Her statement negates all of the work that the individual has done by stating that it was given to them, by who, and that she expects them to give back to the community, but why? Did the community actually contribute in any real way to the achievement of this individual? Who is this community that she is speaking of? Many of the individuals that she makes this statement to have come from some of the worst neighborhoods in which they were lucky to get out alive, and many of them went to sub standard schools, so what do they owe to these communities? I think that if an individual wants to give money, help and time to a community, organization or individuals, that is their choice, but the idea of a group demanding that a person that has achieved something outstanding is in some way obligated to help them is sickening to me. How dare people try to force a person to accept the title "role model" and all of the responsibility that comes with this title, and to tell them that they do not have a choice, the group has chosen them. This individual can choose to be a mentor if they want to but the mob has no right to make any claims on his or her life. This individual that has achieved something that the group, the race, the collective admires and holds in high esteem owes nothing to the community except perhaps a thank you.

Pull your Pants Up

I am so tired of hearing the retarded call for people to pull their pants up and I know that I have said it before but, stop trying to shame and apply mob pressure to get individuals to adhere to your standards and mores. From now on, if any of my facebook friends call for this shit, I am dropping them from my list. Come on people, one person pulling their pants up is not going to make all of the problems that exist in some African American communities, go away because they did not start because people chose to sag, so, stop scapegoating individuals and holding them responsible for everything that is wrong in Black America. I think the real problem stems from not being able to break away from the collective and take responsibility for your own life and judge for yourself what is right and wrong. African Americans are a very diverse group so stop trying to squash us down and cram us into one collective mind that cannot make a move unless the group approves.

Metaphysics vs Science

I think it is time for the new agers, people that study and teach metaphysics to come up with their own language and stop using the language of western science to try and make their understandings and teachings of how the universe works, sound more legitimate! The so called new age teachings are much older than western science and indigenous cultures all over the planet had and still have their own language , that preceded western science, to explain the nature of the universe, so it can be done. When metaphysics/the nature of the universe is explained in the language of western science, they leave themselves wide open to ridicule. Using terms like frequency, particles, waves and in many cases, even the way they explain energy is in direct contradiction to the laws and rules of western science. In my opinion, the ancient teachings on the nature of the universe are way out in front of western science because western thought is still climbing out of the dark ages so why hold them up as the ones that need to sanction your sacred teachings. There are already an ancient languages to explain the nature of the universe, look to the ancient Nile Valley civilizations, the ancient Indus Valley civilizations , Tibet, Peru, Native Americans, the Dogon, and many many more. It is a language rich in symbols and infused with magic and power which western science lacks. Many shaman, priestesses, priests and others, use western scientific terms while thumbing their noses at it. Drop it and do your own thing, use your own language, your own cosmology to explain what you think is going on.

Obama speaks!

What the hell is President Obama thinking? Why does he feel like he should have a private conversation with the children of America? Children do not vote so shouldn't he be too busy fixing the economy, to take time out to talk to our children? I find it very creepy and I don't trust the government at all. The children of America already know to stay in school and to try and do their best so what could he possibly want to tell them that their parents haven't already told them. He is not campaigning, he has already won so it is time to stop all of the town hall meetings and get to work on correcting the mess that is spiraling out of control. I really hope that he is not planning on talking to the American children about service through volunteerism or about the need to get swine flu shots. It seems like a bad and bold move and I really don't like the idea of him doing this.
