Today I hear Ancestor James Baldwin 

compelling me to write these words as Ogun dictates to me.  

There is the ideology that taking government sponsored financial assistance allows the government to dictate one’s life.

Now this is strange because the money the government allocates to their citizens is their tax dollars. The enormous government contracts for private corporations in all industries are our tax dollars.

It is what guides our Foreign Policy – he who pays dictates.

Once the culture of Greed controlled this planet, we are left begging for necessities, health care, healthy food, safe shelter, clean water, meaningful work and quality education to produce citizens focused on the human tasks of building a better world for ALL Living Beings.

We are distracted by cheap entertainment valued way beyond its true value.

We buy such meaningless shit, while people go hungry, no clean water, no home, sick, displaced by war, and the list goes on. 

Shopping just to shop. 

Buy more stuff and more stuff and more stuff and more and more and more…..

The mindset of the “more money the more valuable something is”, controls our everyday lens in how we see ourselves and our world.

Who decides the value of things?  Did you or were you told?

70% of NYC students failed the standardized test.
70% of our students failed.

That means we FAILED 70% of NYC studentsThis is a systematic, societal, political and communal failure.  

We have allowed those who hate children to control our educational system.

And we wonder why our children are so angry?

There are so many people who dedicate their lives to educating children against the odds with little to no support.

There are many more that pimp the NYC Educational Industry.  That is what 70% failure rate tells me.

We must take control of our children’s education NOW.
  • Home Schooling
  • Owning & Managing Top Quality Child Care Centers that Affirm our children’s spirits.
  • Owning and Managing Top Quality Schools – Educational Institutions that nourishes all minds with the highest level of educational excellence that is needed to navigate this century while using the guidance of those who came before.

If we don’t, no one else will.

The government and corporate America have proven their priorities are Profits over People.

We did it before, built our own, nothing new, we can do it again.

No Political Solutions to Spiritual Problems

"There are many things to be shared with the Four Colors
of humanity in our common destiny as one with our Mother the Earth.

It is this sharing that must be considered with great care by the
Elders and the medicine people who carry the Sacred Trusts,
so that no harm may come to people through
ignorance and misuse of these powerful forces."

Resolution of the Fifth Annual Meetings of the Traditional Elders Circle, 1980

Education is not limited to the classroom. God is not limited to the religious building.

We need wisdom we need elders to lead.  The adults lack wisdom; personal agendas dictate adult actions and decisions.  Adults have a limited understanding of time and generation.   Time focus is the present and immediate. 

Elder is not dictated by age, it is dictated by Wisdom knowing the Responsibility to those yet to be born.  

Leading doesn't mean elected office.

My deepest concern is the reality that there are no political solutions to spiritual problems.   

My current struggle with politics is the system.  No matter who we send into the system, the system controls them not us, not the people.  We are given a show to keep us pacified but our reality reveals another story.

Elected officials salaries are paid by the people, tax payer dollars.  However, private sector can contribute much more money and resources to elected officials than a tax payer’s salary.  We live in a system designed to maintain the true power structure that we do not see.  Their only concern is about stock holder profits. Only Focus is Profits, profits and more profits by any means necessary.

Language is so crucial we misuse words all the time.  There are consequences. We use the words great, love, genius, talented, excellence, intelligence, smart and leader carelessly. Lies are presented as truth.  Illusion sold as reality.

At this point, the only person in the race I see as a true fighter for the people is City Council Woman Tish James for Public Advocate.  A position that people should claim and fight to maintain. 

I am undecided for all other seats. 

How do we use the political structure to educate our children to be wise, healthy and conscious human beings?

How do we work with the political structure to maintain our communities with all this redevelopment of urban centers?

Is America adopting the European system?   The new structure, the wealth is in the cities and poverty in the suburbs, out of sight.

How do we
generate business and provide quality products and services within our communities to each other?

How do we rebuild our infrastructure and participate in the economics of that reconstruction?

What are the
responsibilities of individuals in our communities? What are the responsibilities of organizations?  What are the responsibilities of the elected officials?

How do we work the system to benefit our community?
