Our responsibility after DR. KING ©

Posted on Updated on


Today is Dr. Martin Luther Kings actual date of birth 83 years. No, he was never  a captive in the institution of slavery.  No, he didn’t write the Emancipation proclamation; despite the fact many young students believe so . (that’s because many don’t  share history display it) and many schools are closed on the legal holiday .   But Dr.Martin Luther  KING was a MAN dedicated to his natural and spiritual assignment.  A MAN who wanted change –got it but was not able to spell out all the needed results. So his request for “freedom to ring from every mountain side” was heard and allowed but is seldom answered.

So celebrate the dream but create the reality of Liberation .  We are all aware more so than ever that living next to someone, working for/with someone, Studying/Learning with them, marrying someone, singing with someone, talking to someone or being on a team with someone ; means nothing if you don’t mean  or intend it to be a honest act and contributes to the creation and maintenance of global liberation and equity.  Recognize that CHANGE is still needed but this time it must happen from within not from external. The power of the innate spirit of life is in all of us .

What is your real intent and motivation to recognize the MAN that stayed focused, hurt, bled, talked to encourage and promote us to do the same today against the injustices that continue to exist. Maybe one day we will be able to really celebrate not only Dr. King’s birth but also the reality of real liberation for those Black African decent.

Time Really is on your side.©

Late last year I came across an email, with a video clip about Iyanla Vanzant’s book” Peace from Broken Pieces”; her message spoke to me about the very situation I was experiencing at that time. So I did a bit of research and bought the book. I read the book and really connected with the content;I couldn’t believe how much of a mirror reflection our two lives were.I had been in social & business environments with her but had never read her books, watched her videos, I just was aware of what she did and was cordial. Folks had compared my style of sharing with her but I had never taken the time to learn about her. But when I did.. !!! It was at the right time when I need it. Our mutual friend later set up an opportunity for us to speak (which never happened due to scheduling issues) but I was ok with it. What was meant to be was.Time is not something that we can control but we can control the what we do in the time we are given by simply being open to receive from the Divine . The divine wanted me to hear that message (that I opened the wee hrs of morning) , divine wanted me to read the book, the Divine wanted me be affirmed in my life journey, become more actively awakened , as well prepare me for what is awaiting me.It’s not about timing its about what you do with that time that really matters. Manage your time and use it to make your life and those around you the best it can be. That is working to birth your vision, maintaining your destiny, manifesting and operating in your purpose, loving you, your loved ones and accepting new ones. Don’t waste it. USE your time wisely.
