I always find it interesting how people forget their own Constitution.
"Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or
prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of
speech, or of the press, or the right of the people peaceably to
assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances."
I thought I should leave this here for you all to ponder.
I find it a shame when government can focus on petty twitter exchanges, politics, and rivalries but ignores a potential disaster in the making for its own people. No evacuations, no federal resources volunteered, and even a flight ban over the area by the FAA. I must ask is it callous disregard for Human life, political revenge, or simply self absorption? Your people are in need and in danger. Shame on you!
My advice if you live anywhere in the river area all the way to San Francisco Bay leave or be ready to leave. Last record shows water at 2 ft over the spill way with another 5 feet till crest. More rain is expected later this week. Don't risk your lives, things can be replaced.
I am not an expert but I do know what happens when you have soil and rock that has been hyper dried by extreme drought that then becomes hyper saturated, it collapses. It is degenerating fast. It's your choice to stay or go. My heart is with you all. Good Luck!!!
I have written to and for you you all for so long now. You have the knowledge and understanding of how to be good people and solve all the problems in your lives. It is now up to you all to do the right thing, to love.
I guess the last lesson I will give is know every soul is sovereign. Remember that. Rushing to fix or love must be their will as well or you only hurt. Be you, whoever or whatever you envision.
In my own life I've had life dictated to me far to often. People have made my life a living Hell. I still wish them better than they have treated me. It is my hope they receive better than they have extended to me.
So many have felt the need to judge, hurt, and force who, what, and how I am. All I can say is you all owe me debts so great they can never be repayed. I can never get those times back. I can never unforget your hate, intolerance, selfishness, and pain.
Still I have hope for you all. I hope and pray one day everyone is happy and prosperous. I have never hidden my faith in the blog but out of respect to all who have been hurt by men abusing such I have kept such things minimal. However as this is my last post I will leave you all with this.
"Beloved, let us love one another: for love is of God; and every one that loveth is born of God, and knoweth God.
He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love."
- John 4:7-8
Regardless if you believe or not or how you believe the message is true. It is divine to love. If you love you know the divine. Love is about us all. You can not limit it or choose only part of it else you diminish it or remove it.
We have all seen loves absence in life. Maybe if we stop trying to limit that which is and bounds us all we could see what truly exists. We could see beyond the clothes, skin, hair, eyes, and many other wonderful differences.
It can be scary to open yourself completely to love. You are not sure you can watch others in pain. You are not sure others that are different are right or safe. You are not sure where others fit. There is a secret though.
Love fits and encompass' all, no exceptions. Say what you will and believe what you will but love is always there. It is you who must embrace it. Anything less is a lie and deception. As such it serves no one.
So these Links of Love are for you all. My words free and hopefully inspiring. My love welcomes you, whoever you may be. You are and always have been safe with me. Be safe with you and everyone else.
Now to those of you living less than love, I am truly sorry you choose to live life in lies, deceptions and pain. I am sorry you extend that to others. I however give you no power, no authority, and certainly shall not change.
Do I walk in pain due to others, yes. Do I love, yes. You see it is about love.
The world still needs justice. People still need to pay their debts of pain. Lastly people must honor free will, choice, and life. Don't be one of those that accumulate so much debt that love would take millenia to repay.
I wish you all love, happiness, and wonderful lives. Be you and love, you, others, and all things in life. As I said before love is the only harvest that sustains all. With love all things are possible.
Hopefully my time here has helped or inspired some of you. If so please carry the light I have given to another. Maybe one day we can all see with the clarity of day and the darkness will be banished from our lives forever.
Yesterday I talked about when we fight. I've certainly talked plenty about love. So today I have a simple message. The world is not a perfect place. It may never be. However people are hurting and in great need.
The trumpet of love is now sounding. Will you heed it's call?
Life is not always beautiful. It's preservation and uplifting however is. Go forth and lift every soul. Feed the hungry. Help the needy. Give hope when their is despair. Heal wounds ever so deep. Give love to the unloved.
Love's clarion call echo's forth. You are the love, the hope, and the power. If we act the harvest of our lives will be bountiful. If we do not our fields will be barren and full of vultures.
Everyone on this Earth deserves dignity and a life of love. It is time we do it together. We may be many but we are and always have been one. The choice is yours. Live and honor life! Hear the call of love's trumpet. Go where it takes you. Help the ones it sounds for.
Spread love and tend it well. It is the only harvest that sustains all.
Since I have covered so much about love and avoiding the conflicts that tear us apart I thought I should cover when we should fight. Fighting is not a always physical conflict but it is always a struggle.
We should always fight when we have no other option left. We should never allow a person to be hurt or left behind. Human history has had enough of that and we simply can not afford it any more. To much blood and pain has been let. It's time to heal and its time to move forward.
So skipping the poetic, I say we fight for every dignity, life, freedom, and love. This world, right now, is all we have. We fight so that we preserve the integrity of each and every soul. No one is less than or worth leaving behind.
Now as a measure of balance I also need to say don't be reckless and stay on message. When your efforts divert from the topic you make it about a person or group. In other words you give them the power not the issue.
When you give power your struggle is now on their terms. Never do that and never leave anyone behind. Passion, struggle, and all the other confusions of day to day life can divert us from our focus. So if you must fight for yourself or others then remember do so purely for the issue.
In a struggle of ideology it is always about beliefs, never the person or group. We are all worth saving. Remember that. It will serve you well. Defeat the belief and the people who follow it will fade. Finally fight with love.
Now as I have said peace is the expression of love. This does not mean we can not struggle and have love. Love is the the tempering of conflict. Know when to show honor, respect, and reconciliation. Know when to forgive and extend your hand.
People get lost, hurt, or simply do not know any better. Maybe they were never given the tools to look beyond themselves and their world. You must reach them just as much as the ones they hurt. Because if you do not we trade one set of lives for another.
I can't say I support fighting as any option other than a last one. But I can say when it comes to the life, liberty, and pursuit of happiness of all you must stand. Stand in surety that all people matter and deserve equality.
I abhor violence but I abhor the defenestration of love and life even more. Everyone has different levels of tolerance before they are ready to fight but we all have a choice in how we fight. Ive told you all when we fight and how to fight. When is up to you.
Fight with love. Fight for love. Always honor life.
