Stepping out from behind the shield

Standard

I wanted to share this very sad but powerful post by the author of this lovely blog I follow.

I don’t normally post political posts on this blog but I could not let this blog post go unnoticed by others.

My readers will remember that I’ve been an activist all my life and even more so as an adult. Even as I child, it broke my heart to see migrant worker’s children treated so badly by other children in school. I watched racial issues divide students in my schools. Since I’ve always been very spiritual as well, I just never understood this need to separate from others, treat others poorly, feel I was better than someone else. It just makes no sense to me.

It is horrible that this young student written about in this post, had to withstand these hate crimes in his school and even worse that the administration did nothing. I feel that Donald Trump and his reality show imagined run for presidency, with all his blustery bullying belligerent and demeaning rhetoric and racism is making things even worse in this country. The fact that the media eats is up and even acknowledges that they give him more press than any other candidate as his violent show biz style sells more news is even worse.

It is time for the shift into the light and it is time NOW! It is time for all of us to realize we are ONE, divine, created to live in light and love, supporting each other and this beautiful planet.

I am so ready….for this darkness to be over and for humanity to shine!

This journey of mine, my search for God’s face has been redemptive, forcing me to hurtle headlong into the confines of my faults and contradictions with the expectation that I will exit from the other side – unburdened, fortified and ready to do what has been mandated for me.

It has been said that it gets more difficult as you come closer to the shores of victory, but being cognizant of this fact ensures that I won’t drown in those shallow waters.

My faith in humanity has been shaken on a number of occasions, but I am comforted in the realization that this is the lot of humanity – its consistent inconsistency.

Over the course of the past year I have been attacked by forces beyond the realm of my comprehension that have left me tumbling in the wake of death, loss, disillusionment and the putrid stench of…

    • Yep, mine, too. It’s scary enough raising a child and hoping they are safe, but parents of Black children have to worry even more. Hopefully this planetary shift into the light I’ve worked for all my lifetimes, and we can move forward knowing we are all One.

    • I’m glad you liked this post. It’s been an interesting path to lead with my spirituality and be an activist, too, as in some people believe the two don’t mix. In my heart I believe the two go hand in hand. Many of our great spiritual masters were both.

        • Look at Jesus….he was quite the activist! And many others in other religions. Pope Francis is demonstrating it as well. Spirituality isn’t just about “saving” yourself, it is about making a difference in the world, realizing that we are all connected, all one, no matter our differences.

          I was in a training on Diversity, Prejudice and Violence, learning to lead workshops and training for others around these issues. Oddly, some Latino women in the group were chiding me, calling me a “social worker”. Very odd, I felt, as why not be a “social worker” and help make social change, otherwise, why were they there in the training, and why not let a white woman help people of other races, along with other white people, to look at and address their behavior and views that might need cleaning up?!

          • Well, i believe the problem is that many feel like whites do not know the struggle. I know every ethic group has it’s struggles. It’s ashame that when others try to help they reject it. The only way we can stop anything is through uniting everybody and thier differences!! That is true greatness.

            • So true. Why not let everyone help! I grew up skinny, asthmatic and smart. In 5th grade my entire class had a club against me due to my test scores and intelligence. I just wanted to belong and wasn’t trying to stand out, but they decided I was to be rejected. They created their own secret language, to keep me separate. I talked to the teachers, my parents, the principal ..and no one stopped it. I cried everyday for that entire school year and learned to dumb down. It took me years to let my light shine again. I was already aware of prejudice though by third grade, seeing how migrant kids were treated. Broke my heart.

            • Sorry you went through such struggles. As I said…I was white around other white kids but being smart separated me in their minds. Yes, time for ALL to unite!

            • More people need to see that we all have similar problem regardless of “race.” Rejecting someone just becuase they are different will destory us, eventually. Thank you for sharing! Im so proud you read my post 😀

  1. That is so sad about you in the fifth grade. I’m sorry you went through that. On the other hand, it really helps you to understand what separation is, and got you to that training and to where you are now.

    • Thank you! Yes, it was quite painful, especially since no one stopped it. I learned young that no one had my back and I had to take care of myself. My parents were there for my asthma stuff, nice vacations and clothes, etc. but as far as defending me…I was on my own. I regularly got spankings for stuff I hadn’t done as my Father would believe others over me.

      As far as understanding about separation, since early childhood, I had remembered past life deaths and tortures, for doing the work I knew I was to do again this lifetime, so I was already well aware of separation. Plus I had grieved since third grade over how migrant kids in our school were treated by others.

      Thanks for your concern and support and for taking the time to read my blog and comment!!!
