Understanding Oneness Level of Consciousness

January 7, 2010
Understanding Oneness
Level of Consciousness
Sometimes we look at the actions of others and find it difficult to understand what motivates them. But we are all doing the best we can with the information we currently have. We have all been taught how to see the world from the examples of those around us and by our experiences. Keeping this in mind, we can accept the choices made by others while seeking ways to increase the world’s level of consciousness as a whole.

Our different levels of consciousness are like the developmental stages of children, whose understanding varies according to their age and experience. For example, the behavior of a two-year-old who doesn’t want to share can be understood as a phase of his social education, whereas a 16-year-old who behaves in the same manner would be thought to be acting childish. It is important to remember that we are each on our own unique path. We may have chosen certain lessons or made an agreement to play certain roles in the unfolding of the world’s understanding before we incarnated in this lifetime. So our job is not to judge others but to shift the balance of understanding in the world by increasing our own.

Every thought we have and action we take becomes part of the collective energy of the planet. When we use our energy to bring light into the world, it combines with the light brought by others to dispel the darkness. Though we live in a world of duality, which helps us to experience the material plane, we don’t need to experience extremes to understand them. We can share our experiences and understanding with others not from a place of condescension but of connection. When the entire family of humanity understands that each of our thoughts, choices, and actions affect us all, we will share an incredible level of consciousness—one that puts our oneness above all else and helps us evolve into higher expressions of our spiritual selves. Remember the next time you witness an action of another that they are of the same earth as you but simply on a different conscious level at this point in their life. Find compassion, bless them, and move along your day in grace.

RE: Avatar a critique/He is not one of Us.....


I have been for several days fighting the temptation to step back into this discussion, but after reading TJ’s message, I cannot help it any more. I will try to make this brief as I possibly can, so bare with me.

First of we are all here to make some sense of the crazy world we live in, we are trying and we are experiencing successes and a few failures along the way, and it is clear from the responses that everyone here cares about African descendant people and I would like to stretch this concern to all of mankind. Because if we only focus on our own needs despite the needs of others, if we only service ourselves, then we are mimicking the very one we are so tempted to denunciate.

For 11 years I was a member of the Nation Of Islam, and believed with all my heart, that the white man was the devil, in the flesh. Then my mother showed me my great grandmother who was French. And I wondered, what did that make me. Then I moved into African spirituality and found that people did not want white folks in their religion, because of a variety of sundry reasons. I understood that till one day my eyes were opened.

What I saw was that the Creator does not care about what color we are. We are “judged” by our deeds and it does not matter what color we are, sex we are, age we are or sexual orientation. When you delve into the realm of spirit, where all is one, then you understand, that your previous biases no longer matter because we live on a planet with many colors, many species and many manifestations of Creation. We live in a universe, one of millions, that is an expression of the Most High, Who felt like expressing itself in all types of creations. So, for sure if we spend time squabbling about something as insignificant as to whether Avatar is racist and miss the deeper meaning that we all, every single one of us, will have to go back home… Even that white boy, he had to go back home, to Nature, to the Communion with Nature, to the connection with Nature, to his most Intimate Connection with The Divine Creator, who created everything……. Even the so-called bad stuff.

We can go on and on about how he did this, and ignore the fact that many Black Civilizations have risen and fallen over the many millennia, and we cannot, nor should we blame the “so-called” white man who is a recent inhabitant of this planet. If we look at them as the cause of the Original Man’s demise, then what was that vulnerability that this “Original Man” had, that made him susceptible to the temptation?? Why was this Original Man weakened to the point of being over powered and subsequently destroyed by this new dude on the block? What happened to Kemet, to Songhai, to Ethiopia, to Mali, etc.?????? To Black folks a short 5-6 hundred years ago.

Which brings me to one of the most disconcerting aspect of our interactions with each other. How often have we had great leaders, and we did not support them until it was too late, or… until he passed the litmus test of approval by Mr. Charlie?? Why do we not support our own and cry out loud for that instead of spending endless time, dollars, energy and debate participating in a culture that will ultimately destroy us, all of us, no matter what color we are.

We fuss about a white savior, yet how can that change when for all accounts and purposes the white man’s face is on the cross, in the kitchen cabinets, in the classroom and on TV??? We are expecting people to act out of what they have been indoctrinated to do without any fore knowledge that they can trust and without good, viable, strong examples from the so-called conscious community. What do I mean by that??? I mean that many of these so-called conscious Black folks still call themselves Christians/Muslims/Jews and have little or no idea of the true root or even the psychical roots of these so called religions. Or, they will not even think about dealing with African spirituality…. And if they do, who is saying anything about it??? They have accepted that African spirituality is evil, primitive or backwards, and yet it is totally the spiritual message that AVATAR was talking about. African spirituality is ridiculed by the Black elite, the so-called conscious Black folks who do not understand the Spiritual underpinnings of it and it’s connection to the Earth and how it connects it’s initiates to the earth.

Avatar, was talking about the final goal of all human beings, all creatures and all of nature. We have got to realize our inner Divinity and start acting like Gods and Goddesses, not in words but in actions and deeds. We must first love the planet… and do all we can to preserve it. Then we have to love each other….. Period!!!! The Most High does not care about our tribal squabbles… It is about our values, our work, our participation in the Divine Laws of the Universe, and our willingness to come into the light. We have to be honest and admit that Black folks have done some really crappy things to each other and to our Mother Earth, and while we may want to ignore that, the All Knowing Knows what is in our hearts against each other. And until we begin to love each other, we cannot and will not transcend these petty differences about race and color.

Dude was used by the Powers That Be, not because he meant anything to them. And that is what must be remembered, once you mean nothing to them you are disposed off. He was a cripple, someone who in this culture would get a bad rap, mistreated, stared at and ridiculed. How come with all their technology they were not able to put him back together when he lost his legs fighting for them??? This white boy found freedom from a hate he was taught about from a young man! Imagine how freeing being released from hate can be??? This man transformed right in front of our eyes when he saw that he could walk, fly, soar and yes, assist others in a way he could only dream about. He was useless to everyone else, and found true power in his connection to the Earth Spirit. If all people would just do that, can you imagine the transformation that would take place on this planet. Yes, he started off as a white man, but what kind of soul was he, having suffered what he did for his so-called country?? He became a guinea pig, they only “used” him because he had the same DNA of his twin brother. What a smack in the face for the young men and women coming home now from wars in Iraq, Afghanistan and elsewhere. Homeless, unable to take care of their families, completely mentally damaged and what do they get? What have they gotten?? Experimented upon before, during and after their return.

So again, I cannot stress enough how important it is for us to get off the racist angle and get to the message here of uniting our Divine Essence with all Creatures of the Divine Creator. We look like babies squabbling over a toy in the play pin, when all of humanity is at risk now… All of humanity and this planet. Let’s move into 2010 with a renewed commitment to do all we can to save our planet. Stop buying stuff we do not need, stop eating food that kills us, stop hating your neighbor, do not support any place of business that is getting their products at the destruction of another’s self-respect, land, labor, health and wealth! Do some research and decide to dis-engage from all those movies about war, all those videos games about war and all those competitive sports that are not designed to heal the players but destroy them.

I always feel that we can complain and complain but until we change our behavior those complaints are hot air.. Be pro-active and if you don’t like a movie and it’s message, don’t spend your money on it then complain how much you didn’t like it. We have lost contact with our inner voice, because that voice, if heard, would have told you to stay home, because you were not going to like it.

Let’s support film makers who do give us a great message. Let’s go out of our way to make them feel supported. I am a cultural performing artist, and I am sad to say, that I get the most support from white folks… Why is that?? We have got to get a grip on our own self hatred and stop projecting it outside of ourselves to some enemy who only has the power over us that we give him.

Please, I apologize, this is way too long… but I’m just saying….. I am so tired of the senseless debate over AVATAR, when we are in such a sad state of affairs in our community and in our world. We need spiritual healing of the worst kind!

On the Racial Debate around Avatar

Greetings Folks,

I am gonna step out there on a limb and suggest something that has gotten little coverage from the many discourses I have read. And that is, quiet as it is kept, these folks are looking for somewhere else to go because as the movie stated they have ruined the planet earth. With that in mind, remember the references to wars and colonializations. This is real. Remember the references to “fighting terror with terror” and greedily stealing resources and I believe the deeper meaning begins to emerge.

We can all get caught up in the fact that dude was a white boy… and that he was a so-called savior of these indigenous people. But to me, the reality is that if he had been a person of color… well, he probably would not have been on that mission in the first place. Yeah, there were people of color on the craft, indeed, there were people of color who were in the background.. let’s see, we got star trek and star wars.. and we could go on. I don’t watch a lot of movies. However, the fact that Cameron went out to show the true nature of his people was a monumental step in his film career. His interview on Tavis Smiley brings some of this out.

I would also like to state, that while we may squabble about who “so called” saved those blue folks, we must remember that he would not have had the power to do it, without the combined knowledge of his horrendous sky people mates and that of the blue folks. In some instances we have to put aside the “racial” card and begin to realize that while we as a people may want freedom from capitalism, the white man’s reign over the world, we are not technologically advanced enough, nor are we united enough in what we do have to make a serious dent in this history we have had as people of color.

It was the indigenous people who did not give up their faith in the other world, the unseen helpers and the powers they project into the physical world. People of color, all over the world would be better off in my opinion if they did the same. And let’s not forget, that while they may have not had the technological advances in the form of computer gadgets, they could have transported Grace’s soul into the Grace Avatar. And for sure if that had occurred in the movie, as it was inferred, her life would have been spared and she would have become one of them.

We have to get passed the very thing that is holding us up. We have got to stop denying that we are one human family, and that we share the same home, the planet earth. As long as we close our eyes to that fact, then as the oppressed we will indeed, once so-called freed from the oppression, lay the same oppression on others, because they are not racially who we are. And who are we racially?? After all the mixing and mingling?? How many of us can even claim to be pure anything anymore, white or black, or any other race of peoples??

I would also stretch it a bit further and say that not only is Hollywood movies giving people of color a noose around their neck, but so is the media, the food industry, Big Pharma, Kmart Sweatshops, entertainment, sports and education. We can complain and bitch about this movie till the end of time, but until we take our own personal power back, and that means all of us, we will continue to march to the beat of whatever drummer comes along.

With all this hoopla, let’s remember the movie is talking about a ravenous people, who have killed their planet and is searching the stars to rape and kill other planets and their people. This is a true fact.. if you ever check out NASA and the other hidden governmental plans of mass genocide. We must stop and check out how we are complicit in the raping of our own planet, and make a serious change in our style of living. We have to connect to spirit, to our soul energy, to the Divine Light and move in that direction. We are all part of Creation, created by the Creator.. We all have a responsibility to be aware of our role in this, and become Divine Creation, connected to Spirit in the most intimate of ways, like they did with their hair(even that symbolism got lost in the “racial” debate.)

In the ancient spirituality, an Avatar is the embodiedment of the Holy Spirit, or Gods.. Every person on this planet has the Divine essence within them, therefore, every person on this planet is an AVATAR. But we also have free will and if we chose to use our Godly Divine Power to harm others, then in essence we have departed from the righteous path.. but in the true sense, we cannot deviate from the Divine Plan. We have free will, but we are also subjected to all the laws that govern the choices we make. We have been warned throughout the millions of years we have been on this planet, and more than once, about our ability to destroy ourselves and our planet. We have been shown that we have the power to turn it around. But if we do not, then we will be given, or reap, exactly what we sew. That is Divine Universal Law.

I pray and hope that we can get pass the “racial” debate and look at the spiritual essence this movie is conveying and the message of spiritual communion with nature so that we can come together as one human family and do something to preserve our planet. Cause quiet as it’s kept, when seen in the overall scheme of things, we are viewed as human beings squabbling over one of the most beautiful planets in our universe. And that makes us all look rather primitive to those who soar in the heavens.

There is so much more I would like to say, but at the risk of turning you away, I will leave you with this note. We are all part of the human family, we share the same home, the planet earth.. we need to check that out and be conscious of where our soul’s journey is taking us and whether we, if placed in their predicament, would say no to someone who has embraced his own soul and taken the risk to unite with us in healing, restoring and maintaining this beautiful vessel we all inhabit simply because s/he is not one of us.

Obama flack David Plouffe says:There's no limit to what we can accomplish this year, if we keep working together.

Hello folks, I just want to say that first off, the people who voted for Obama, did not, and could not have had the deepest inkling of how the System works, they did not understood that without the backing of rich bankers, and others including the media, there would be "NO OBAMA!" Look at the amount of money that was spent on his campaign, where did that money come from?? Poor people, middle class folks, hell no!!

Those who voted for Obama were deceived to think that this is a Democracy, a Republic or any such thing as that. They didn't realize that their vote did not count, because if that were the case, he would not have won. It was not everyone's single vote that got him in.. it was the Electoral College, big bankers, big Pharma, big Agri, etc. that got him in. They all drank the koolade of choice as it was being spilled down their throats, hook line and sinker.

The political structure of this country is not about the masses but about the elite having what they have always had. Sure there may have been a few advances but I always get miffed when people say, "Black folks fought hard for the power to vote." Not that Black folks fought, struggled, and died to understand how this system worked against them and their interest. I see that as a waste of human life. Black folks and their supporters were pushing to get into a corrupt system simply because they were not allowed to be a part of it. and time after time, Black leaders get in and become corrupt because you cannot be in it and not be corrupt at the same time.

Why fight for a Constitution that was not written with Black folks, poor folks and the indigenous people in mind??? I always say go to the root. Obamamania!!!??? people singing rap songs, Obama girl making a fool of herself... and the list goes on. Where did he come from?? What did he do to prove himself..? Why did people believe in a man with words and no actions, and his words were never really clear on what Change Meant. I cannot accept that the lesser of two evils is a good choice. Why do we chose evil at all??? It is a shroud. So folks see he isn't better than Bush, he is worse because he had the people of the world believing in him. That ranks high on my list of deception by someone that people trusted. Everybody was mad at Bush, but he paved the way for someone with little substance and a bunch of promises to get in the WH.

People can fuss at Obama and his policies and his handlers, but that's like fussing after the cow got out of the barn. Why was the barn door opened anyway?? Why is it that people didn't check out who was backing him and make a serious connection?? This is America people!!! You do what your backers say you must do or die!!!

I hate to say, "I told you so, but for real folks, the only way this country would have a viable African American/ or any kind of American for that matter who would really be about the people, would be to have him land here in a fiery chariot and scare the hell out of the PTB, other than that, period end of sentence. Change is more of the Same as has been since the beginning.

We Need to Stop the War in Afghanistan... NOW!

Here we go. Who ever said that we were in WAR??? The media. You cannot declare war on a concept. The war was and remains illegal because they link to Al Qieda, is falsified at best and stupid at worse. And where is Osama??? A war to impose Democracy is an oxymoron!! And who really understand the Muslims in Afghanistan or Iraq?? And if the folks were Saudi Nationals, why didn't they bomb Saudi Arabia?? Good question huh? not to mention that most of the so-called hijackers weren't even on those planes. Also, why is it okay to dig out terrorist around the world and attack those who house them, when there is a big fat terrorist right here in the US, from Haiti? And why did they back the Taliban if in fact they wanted to get rid of terrorist, and that dude in Iraq, is a mass murderer.. And if folks are so hell bent on getting them terrorist what about those folks that tortured innocent people, kept them detained without charges, why isn't the US bombing the places, strongholds, etc. where they learned out to do that stuff? And what about Israel?? They have 14k Palestinians wasting away in their jails. And what about capital punishment right here in the US? What's the difference, a few heads role, or a few people fried?? As for Al Qiada... it is not like the CIA, the Mossad, MIC, or any such thing as that. They are not organized that way. Some are claiming to be Al Qiada, when any Arabic speaking person knows, that that is a word that simply means the group and was invented by Bush. In fact, why not allign yourself with that Name, made so famous and feared around the world??

People simply do not understand the Islam mindset and they certainly do not understand how many chapters of the book were written. There are at least 72 sects of Islam. And then you add that to the many countries who are primarily Muslim then add that to the fact that the US troops don't speak Arabic or any of the various variations of the language... See More across the expanse of the many countries who speak it. Come on people!!! We barely speak on language and they have many and a totally different alphabet, that goes from right to left. Where is the sense in it?? So instead of fighting the terrorists, the USA will support the Yemeni government with millions of dollars to beef up their security forces, and the US cannot even secure an airplane that a so called terrorist used to bomb Americans. Listen, remember, this is all a smoke screen with several scenarios playing in the background. Remember that false flag operations are on the top of the USA to do list. Keep us distracted while the banks suck up the money and get away clean!!!

Let's look at the Cradle of Civilization, Sumeria, Babylon, Yemen. Let's look at the complete lack of respect for the other folks holy lands, mosques, holidays etc. What makes them right to bomb these folks to smithereens from drones?? What makes it right to kill innocent civilians in the quest to find a few so-called terrorists. How do they know who they are?? Are they walking around with T-shirts on saying "I am a Terrorist, send me a drone please!" Why are these folks tearing down historical impressions in the rocks and stones of these places?? Is it really about oil?? Or is it about the fact that human history is being destroyed for the purpose of implanting another story? I'm just saying. It is senseless... And folks need to look deeper, way past the so called War on terror and look into how Wars and rumors of wars fill the pockets of the big bankers, destroys the young impressionable men and women who fight them, and mentally and psychically disturbs them for life along with their families and loved ones. Let's look at the total devastation of the planet, due to the type of weaponry they are using that is cause people to have deformed children, and that if the US soldiers are breathing the same air, lying on the same earth eating the food washed in the same water.. Then aren't they too becoming contaminated and some of this contamination remains in the soil for thousands of years... What is the US doing people???? And since this is not done in a vacuum, what's gonna happen to the rest of the world when the contamination finds a nice jet stream and flies all over the planet??? I want to get in the minds of the planners to simply ask why this makes any sense. They are destroying the planet, wholesale and we don't hear hardly a peep from the media about the dangers of the weaponry that is being used against a bunch of poor folks. I'm just saying, man, WTF??????

On Breast Cancer and the Pink Ribbon Stuff

Uh Sweetie, I don't wear a bra, because they too can lead to cancer, cists and tumors.. especially if they are ill-fitted. One size does not fit all, and each woman's body is shaped differently, so I burned my bra over 30 years ago, and my boobs are even more voluptuous then they were then.

It's a misnomer to think that you have to be strapped in a bra, it's a western invention (remember the corset?) that was designed to tickle the fancy of men, who wanted the hooters to be pointed in their face. Ahhhh, a man's vision of beauty the often puts the woman in dire straights, i.e, tight clothes, high heels, hair dyes, cosmetics, etc., but who asked me????

Sometimes I get a little uncomfortable with this breast cancer thing because in many many case, I ain't saying all, it could be changed without drastic mutilation of the body through drugs, kemo and mastectomies. I don't trust big Pharma and I don't trust that they don't have a cure.

The pink ribbon is not going to change anything no matter how many I post, email or wear, if the people who have breast cancer are not involved in the commitment to a complete change of life style. I feel that I am promoting Big Pharma as well and the folks who made those silly ribbons. If we walk, run, fly, dive for women with breast cancer, yet we do not help them change their eating habits, lifestyle, get them to some clean fresh air, lower the stress levels, then our efforts will always be thwarted. But again, who asked me????

Please excuse my tirade, if I have offended anyone, it was not my intention, I just have had enough of superficial causes and their superficial remedies that get us know where except to continually spend on the wheel, around and around.

Would you like me to write down the color of my v-neck sleeves t-shirt???
