¡We can no longer be a bunch of empty minds living in critical times refusing to recognize real lies!

¿LORD WHEN?

Wasn’t there a time when the world was a safe place? Can you remember what it was like to have day that is SUNNY and CLEAN WITHOUT A CLOUD IN SIGHT? EVERYDAY you turn on the news you hear of bad things happening to someone out there. So many of us aren’t BOUNCING ALONG, LIGHT IN SPIRIT, FREE FROM WORRIES and ENJOYING THE MOMENTS AS THEY PASS BY. Dear Lord I know that the DARK days are just as much a part of life as are the days you GRACED with sunshine; and I don’t mean to put questions towards you but I can’t help myself. See my FAMILY, FRIENDS, BROTHERS and SISTERS are HURTING. Things are getting worst by the second, our faith is waning and I know that you are just showing us a DIFFERENT perspective of our world but…They say a rainy day helps to clear the air, washing away stagnation; but what do we do when stagnation bleed our hearts N’ souls? It is SO hard to NOT to feel doom N’ gloom OR feel afraid when the dark clouds are hovering over us. As of late the roller coaster ride of life has been filled with a lot LOWS, TWISTS and TURNS. Even for someone like myself who enjoy the occasional thrill find it a bit frightening to suddenly find the world heading for a deep plunge…I guess all we can do is EMBRACE the unpredictability that is due to come our way AND pray for the best. I know that the KEY is accept what is happening AND let go of our ORIGINAL expectations but times are HARD…I GET THAT WE FEEL ASLEEP @ THE WHEEL & GOT IT STUCK IN OUR HEADS THAT LIFE SHOULD GO ACCORDING TO OUR PLANS BUT…I CAN’T HELP BUT THINK ABOUT ALL THE MEN, WOMEN & CHILDREN THAT WILL BE HURT BECAUSE OF THE STATE OF THE WORLD…I GET THAT THE CHAOS IN THE WORLD IS A GIFT IN & OF ITSELF & I AM SURE THAT THE NEXT TIME A CURVE BALL COMES OUR WAY, WE’LL TAKE A DEEP BREATHE, SAY THANK YOU & OPEN MIND N’ HEART TO THE OPPORTUNITY TO GO BACK TO THE BASIC WAY OF LIVING…BUT UNTIL THAT TIME COMES, CAN YOU LET ME KNOW WHEN?

  1. Just when I think that I might be the only one whose life faces a CONSISTENCY of LOWS... I don't know, perhaps I have so much more to be shown. My mind and heart resonates with this entry.

  4. No we can't go back. Only move forward but we can change how perceive things, people, and our environment. My heart always goes out the men, women, and children who are out there hurting, dying, and suffering. It happens every day, hour, minute, and second we are feeling free, being happy and loving life.

    That is why I am grateful for all the moments I have and press hard with faith when hard times crash themselves in my life. Basic way of living takes MANY VOICES coming together to say hey, "Its time to stop all this and go back to the basics" I would love to know how you live and how things are around you in your life so I could understand what you are seeking.

  5. Jamar Herrod - hey thankx for checking out my blog and to answer your question, I am seeking an end to the financial crisis so things can get moving again. I am tired of heard of and/or seeing my family and friends loose their jobs and fret about what is going to happen next...as for me I am fine, things here in my country are okay, but they certainly can be a lot better since we depend on tourism to keep things following and the America is where that comes from...

  6. things change - it's all part of the cycle. there is so much wrong with this world yet there is allot that has changed for the better. yet again what you're asking for should seem so far fetched or unattainable it should be the norm.

  7. I was watching the evening news yesterday (Sunday) and looking at the humanitarian crisis unfolding in the DRC; the hardships of being a refugee in your own country. I also thought of the wasteland that is Somalia. I thought of Iraq and the senseless & unncessary war started there. And yes I think of people who have no work or can't get work, people who go to bed hungry, grown men who cannot provide for their families and the indignity they must feel; young men in jails. I think of these things everyday and they are very painful for me. And when I pray I always ask GOD that he has mercy on those who are less fortunate than me. And I pray for peace. But I also believe that these are the signs...

  8. SHALLOTTE - I TOTALLY agree with your sentiments...my ONLY HOPE is that we see the signs and prepare ourselves for what is to come...

  9. We've become selfish and greed has consumed us. Thus we have acted in our own self interest which a lot of the times is not the best for our planet and those around us. We live for today and for ourselves with no consideration for the less fortunate, our neighbors or future generations.
    The rich has gotten richer by polluting the environment and our communities and exploiting the poor and nobody seems to care. Those who can make a difference have been corrupted by greed and again act in their own self interest. It is my pray and hope that we start to fulfill our human duty and the reason for our existence so that we can correct this deadly path that we are on.
