A Hateful Longing For Revenge

The lord of power spoke to me,

Through constant craving for more.

He said I was right.

She said I was wrong.

Neither accepted my hate or reason for revenge.

He said, to error is human…

She said, love your neighbor.

But I was hating and thinking of ways to get back at the neighbor.

A deep feeling or resentment for the humiliation, along with an overwhelming sense of pride in my ways to be in control.

All the while I felt and thought, friends would listen and let me rant and rave.

One friend reminded me of a error he made.

One friend reminded me of the love she had for her neighbor.

Slowly my pride lost its power over my reason.

My hate stopped throbbing long enough to loose some of my impulsiveness.

I started to feel some self pity.

It was a pity that liked company, but my friends would not stand for it.

They kept getting me out for walks and asking me about other experiences that showed alternates to hate and revenge.

Should I have isolated or drank a drug, I would have misbehaved in stronger ways.

There is no easy way through pain and suffering…

It takes all the friends and support I have to help me recover from the loss of sanity.

I’d be lying if I said I don’t miss the hate and revenge.

I can only remember a vague craving for them both.

I am grateful they don’t mean as much to me as my friends and my personal responsibilities.

International Women’s Day

Listening to women everyday of the year.

Dialoging with faith in women for the “me too movement”.

Learning to follow women, when their leadership need our support.

Finding connections with women in our common areas of living to build reconciliation for past wrongs through best practices and the justice we are all willing to embrace.

Learning better ways to live, laugh and learn…

Celebrate all women as equals and affirmation of current improvements in today’s society.

The Promises Of Nuclear War Vs Nuclear War Prevention

With a nuclear war a nuclear winter is likely to follow.

As a result much would become cast into shadow and result in cold, death and destruction.

The prevention is the cure, reduce these weapons of mass destruction to zero like we promised in the 80’s.

Remind our politicians to report to us on the effects of a nuclear war.

Let us know of the 100’s of 1000’s of people who would surely die in any nuclear conflict.

Let us plan a way to eliminate all nuclear weapons.

Let’s all talk to our politicians and work for a nuclear free planet:  http://www.nucleardarkness.org/warconsequences/

Love Songs To My Addicts

I say you are not alone when playing games on your computer.

You are not isolated when you are on your smartphone.

Or your distracted behavior is accepted by me.

Because I always love my family friends and relatives.

I romance them when they are lonely, isolated or moody.

I care for their well-being like I care for my own, and when others care for mine.

At times it is hard to love my addicts, but it is a crime to ignore them, avoid them, judge them…

Addiction is not who we are, it is only a symptom of a lack of love,care and attention.

I love my addicts and with a little help from my friends, this addictive behavior is just another transition from lack to abundance.

I believe we all need to bond, love, care and pay attention to our addicts.

East and West

Tribute to David Suzuki: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/David_Suzuki?wprov=sfti1.

There is a way to pay homage to this planet and the way we all endeavor to praise and practice good habits to preserve this good earth.

Many gain fame and fortune but lay truth to bare against the ruin we create in the wake of ‘progress’.

It is more than environmental studies and practice.

We engage each other in dialogue to gain good practice.

We want environmental control to prevent pollution, damage or disastrous destruction.

Mr. Nickolichuk, a high school teacher, a good example of prevention is better than cure.

A choice to use art as a vocation and science as a foundation will always engineer a better practice for a better world.

When we understand the world philosophy and teach our ways to the children, we will learn to practice what we preach: non-violence, world peace, safe practices for a environmentally friendly way of living on this planet.

It is just another good direction to improve present conditions: think about it.
