On the 26th of June in the year of the Metal Tiger, with the moon in the constellation Capricorn on the accepted calendar in use the Sun kissed the horizon, and ushered in the 1st full moon following the Summer Solstice of 2010. These new born thoughts are delivered to you on the 27th. Why is Gyroscope7, “We Share the Same Journey” Blog being introduced at this time? The simple answer, albeit cryptic or abstract, today is the TIME, because tomorrow is the next day. So, by default it becomes the key to procrastination. Therefore, ‘tomorrow’ is an oxymoron or more politely stated - a paradox. That elusive day we perpetually look forward to as it dances across the horizon of infinity will forever be in the future. And, from the severed artery in the Gulf of Mexico that connects the oceans to the rhythm of the earth’s pulse we polarize our thinking to the loss of income rather than the slow asphyxiation of ecosystems. Why, because it is difficult for us to maintain a heading in the best interest of all of us – mineral – plant – animal - hue-man, and other.
Yes, my beloved and often estranged members of the hue-man clan - who remain filled with questions to recognize our DNA siblings in the family of earthlings. The challenge is profound to fathom that we are one? In light of the vile and unspeakable things we inflict upon each other - often orchestrated by some of the most ingenuous sociopaths that have ever walked the face of this earth. More importantly, the very planet that sustains us, we disrespect born from the illusory disconnect fueled by those who catalogue our core “beliefs” to question our oneness. We are taught from a codex of fragmented information that fuels ignorance and greed which gives birth to fear that vacuums the life-force we share. In our hearts, we are toddlers and children prone to believe thoughts that echo in our minds as reflections of ideas and beliefs incompatible with what we intuitively know. We have a natural thirst for Ma’at, yet, the programming is strong and the themes are repetitive, hence our identity becomes so eroded that we are CHALLENGED to recognize self in each other.
As a result, reminders are necessary to impress upon us that ‘We Share the Same Journey’. Again, you may ponder why? That which we witness daily as ‘NEWS’ reflects a one dimensional world which restricts us to four directions, as it focuses on agreed upon events hailing from designated areas as North, East, West, and South. Today, you are reminded that your internal ‘gyroscope’ will be activated with music in this life’s journey. Welcome to the trail – the Path – the Tao, a vibration on Anansi’s web as we navigate the journey we all share – LIFE!
Your internal gyroscope allows you to maintain alignment with the “Spirit” within. There are many names for this “Divine Force” that enables you to navigate any domain, for that matter - any dimension. It is OK to refer to it as a voice that inherently connects you to all, everyone and everything.
This planet dances on the dynamic vortex which has us facing peril everyday. That is why ~ “LOVE makes the world go round.” If you think this is cliché? Have you ever seen prejudices and ignorance go out the window when there is a vehicle accident, a traumatic incident or a so called natural disaster? Have you ever been in the emergency room (ER) and watched the ER team endless questions of Why, and philosophical beliefs instantaneously shift into oblivion as soon as a patient arrives? Have you ever seen the face of despair on a homeless person just squeak by on a heart of dignity, a senior citizen, a hungry child, a neglected animal heart song in their eyes? Sure you have. And, what does this do to you? It evokes the resonance of empathy, and activates the ‘mirror neurons’ in your brain. At that very moment, if you are unable to make a difference, you experience that fleeting moment - a sensation you lack adjectives to describe – that is the GOD in you. That is the fabric being woven into the ‘patch-work quilt’ of your unlabeled humanity which transcends, gender, age, cultural, religious, and ethnic shards of our collective shattered identity – as hue-mans.
In the event you are slightly perplexed – just a little bemused to fathom where we are going, catch your breath, because WE are about to heal the world. The very air you breathe is directly related to ocean currents, mountains, the forest and the trees; all the foliage that surrounds us. From an ecological point of view – your habitat also referred to as your environment.
In simple terms, where we live or struggle to live, due to the ignorance that stifles the fluidity of living - into just getting by, ‘one-day-at-a-time’. For example, that man made geyser of crude gushing from the gulf in the ocean – we can curtail its devastation. Sadly, we could have stopped it a lot earlier. Yes – stopped it! As a matter of fact, lets just STOP it, and abstain from the thoughts of when or have “they” contained it yet? Just think it, and affirm it, and ask the earth to forgive the ignorance, and misguided corporate entities' duplicity in aiding & abetting myopic political agendas.
Have you ever swum in the amniotic fluid of the earth – off the shores of beautiful beaches where you could see the coral, the fishes, and a few things you had no words for? It is as hypnotic as watching babies sleep, as beautiful as any woman, as handsome as any man, as grand as any yacht. It is creation and evolution unfolding right before your eyes, with a simultaneous exquisite massage by the currents rhythmically spiraling around your person. What can “I” (my person) tell you, other than remind you of things you have tucked away into your genetic memories. “I” am that echo of unspoken thoughts that rekindle memories of the first time you laughed until you cried tears of joy, a sensation that bathed your brain in endorphins of pleasure so overwhelming that your heart summoned a signal to make such memories real - - in spite of the journey ahead.
This is a brief entry. During the last week of July 2010, Dr. Lennell Dade (Associate Professor of Psychology at LincolnUniversity) and I were privileged to present at The 42nd International Convention of The Association of Black Psychologists, in Chicago, Illinois. We presented on, The Paradigm Shift: Stolen Legacy2, which addressed the tendency of mainstream scientists and scholar's efforts to repackage what ancient civilizations embraced and practiced millennia before Europe's Renaissance. Specifically, a fundamental goal was to add clarity and confirmation to the origins of New Age thinking and concepts of Complementary Medicine & Spirituality to be rooted in beliefs that predate Pythagoras, and any notion of Graeco-Roman science or history.
In summary, our presentation along with a variety of others emphasized the need for people of color in particular, to rise above the pseudo-protocol and distractions systematically employed to marginalize and or dismiss the achievements of melanin dominant peoples' throughout the world.We concluded, by revisiting the position taken and advocated in the book, Stolen Legacy by George James, that our melanin recessive siblings find it excruciatingly difficult to accept, and acknowledge the phenomenal impact and contributions of so called yellow, red, brown and particularly Black (Afrikans) have had, and continue to have on science, medicine, architecture and history.
Finally, we along with the collective membership of the organization accepted our mission to better educate our estranged members of the hue-man family to a reality that they find so difficult to fathom. In closing, I share these observations, because Americans continue to struggle with the polarized beliefs that people of color - as penned in his-story is a reasonable representation of the Truth. So, today I have chosen to share with you, that we have been so consistently misinformed that an obvious facade obscures the facts so much, that many of us succumb to childish anger when we are exposed to such knowledge.
