Evil is Evil is Evil !!!!  Simple as that!!!!

Does NOT matter what your name is, your position in life,

your riches, your standing, your title, etc….

If Evil, the word evil stays with you and you are then evil to others.

NO excuses, no lies otherwise, you cannot hide your title from others

because the moniker of Evil applies to you and will remain.

Your actions will tell, will show how and what you are in life,

and you will be known for what and how you are also.

So, if you are someone like Putin the Russian President, your minions who follow you

then, you again are known for what you are

An EVIL despicable person!!      You are not liked and only loved

by your minions who support, praise and owe you in life…….

Peace to the world

Life Experiences

We experience life as we experience living itself……

Each of us has reality as it is, versus made up

Figments of our imagination.

What is real is exactly rhat

REAL, and not something else.

We might want something that is conjured in our mind,

But again, that is not reality.

I can wish for something to be different, but

that wishing will not make it so.

Change is the way of life and is also the constant in life.

Getting used to the changes is a slow mindset process


So be it…………………………………………….

Heavenly Thoughts

                                                                       Heavenly Thoughts                                                        

For this discourse, let us agree/submit that there IS a life in the hereafter and let us call it Heaven (H).

When souls arrive in (H) do they leave the Earthly beliefs and their bad actions behind?

All the politics, hatreds, prejudices, thievery, abuses, religious differences, and all so many more,  Earthly human tendencies and other things that prey on our dispositions.

If so, how can this be so?

Will the Earthly person, all of a sudden, have a (H) soul that sees the light of all understanding? Or, does the final trip just erase those Earthly and human traits in the process of acceptance in (H)?

But, or, so again, how can a racist person full of prejudice, an abuser of any sorts, a thief of renown, or any person full of hatred of their fellow man, become, all of a sudden, a righteous person in (H)? How can this person mingle with those they hate in an environment of love, knowing that those around them are the people they despised and acted against on Earth?

I don’t know how this could be so, but still wonder what the ground rules are in (H) for existing there. I know someone who thinks everyone goes to (H), but I doubt if they know the rules either and how it works there.

The great mysteries of life are still there to be found eventually and it will be exciting to find out someday, but I am not in a hurry to learn them right now.

Windows of the Mind


When we see a window that opens up in our minds, is it real or imaginary?

                Could we, should we, doubt its existence, or instead, accept it for what it is?

 Does the window show us reality or just a figment of a restless mind?

                How do the mysteries of life become exposed to us, other than through

                                opportunities of exposure to our thoughts?

I have seen, I have felt, I have heard, I have been entranced by the existence

                of reality of extreme mysteries that some of us desire.

An open mind allows us to experience the realities we deny ourselves

                by bondage to self-imposed restraints.

I can only state that I accept the opportunity to explore the

                looking through the window in my mind.

                                To do anything else, is to deny my very existence.

I am blessed to have some, not many, mysteries shown to me

                and for that I do appreciate the moments

                                the window lights up and is seen.

So be it!               

A mystery does not mean it cannot be known, but many parts will always be beyond understanding


How do others see us?   Not as we see ourselves, but more differently!!!

We can wish they were more attuned to our thinking, but that is not the case. Like looking in a mirror, but sometimes the mirror lies to us.

Could we change, should we change, or are we satisfied with our self-deluded thoughts and delusions about ourselves?

An honest dialogue with others would help, but we would have to be honest, which is hard to do sometimes.

Therefore, we will continue to do as we do and say things, we think are right, but we will be wrong about our image with others.

So be it!!!!

Isolation of Life

Isolation of Life

Isolation – the state of being separated, alone, or apart

The 2020 Pandemic Isolation is the requiring of distance from the other, no touching, and having a manufactured barrier to prevent breathing on any other.  Also, restricting numbers of people in groups of many types of affairs normally attended by the countless of beings.

All contrary to the norm, making all, not just feeling isolated but divorced from each other in so many ways.

Complaints by many of rights being infringed upon and an injustice but done so to protect the many from the few.

Some, old and young to have the final isolation by being totally alone, gasping for breath on an insensitive machine supplying oxygen till another monitor finally flat lines, signaling the end of life.

Choices to be made by the many, while the numbers keep going up and up and up.

It will take time, but that is what we have for those in the isolation of life.

Sequences in Life

                                                Sequences of Life                              

Daylight, Nightlight, on again off again, awake, asleep again and again, over and over as the sequence of life continues. Repetitive episodes of life letting us know of our existence, during this Pandemic.

For some a routine of difference, for others a boredom of sameness.

Old ways are part of the byways, gone and forgotten.

Time will tell when it is over, contained and ending then done

Meanwhile a leaking faucet of life drips continuously, allowing us to pause in life.

Spend it wisely or squander it, the time of our choices to make.

As the life periods of awake, asleep, day, night sequences continue, or lives continue in the way we dictate unknowingly.

Life goes on, and on and on, thankfully, hopefully, and eventually eternally.


Listen and Hear

Hearing the Word


To hear, you have to listen

The mind is cluttered with obstructions to prevent hearing at times

The listening requires many things, all taking effort and perseverance

Solitude is a discipline and a gateway to hearing

Open your mind to the light –  listen and hear the Word


White Privilege 2020-02

White Privilege     6-6-2020

I am a white male individual. I am not black; I never considered myself a privileged person from my childhood growing up, but perhaps I was at the time or even since then.  I was an ignorant white guy, that did NOT know of the plight of the black man. I did NOT know any black individuals as a child in Penna. I had one instance of interacting with a black person in high school, who wanted to kick my butt to the moon and that is another story; not for now.  It wasn’t until I joined the U.S. Marines that I was exposed to many black people as a norm. I did not associate myself with any then, because it was not something anybody did then per both sides of the equation.

I think it was in 1991 that I recall the Rodney King episode that brought my awareness to the light. To see that man being abused by the police was enlightening to say the least. Could that happen in America? YES it could and did!  I did not consider myself a racist then or now, or even prejudicial in any way, just did not understand their predicament of life.

How many whites do understand those of color and what they go through? Not enough I would think. Those whites,  I know closely. probably are of the same ilk as I am, Ignorant and uninformed of the life of black people in any knowledgeable way. That is sad and I can only say that is the way of life for many today.

I love to see the commercials on TV showing white and black actors portraying closeness in life, as they film a scenario of living, promoting a product they are shown in the advertisement. Another plus is when, in another commercial, a white and black are shown as man and wife. One more is when a gay couple are depicted as being married as they show another scene of life. We need more of this type of characterizations.

I know of only one person who is proud to claim being a racist in life, and he bragged or stated with pride that he was one to me, and that is sad.  Till this day I have not communicated with this person, for that fact only, I guess. Pride in being a racist is disgusting!!!!   He is also a believer of the current non-leader in the WH in Washington, so I can only think it tells us something; don’t know.

The death of Mr. Floyd in Minneapolis hopefully will be an honest wake up call to all of us. My question for the aftermath of the protestors and to our leaders of government is – WHAT NOW? Will we just revert to the same old, same old, past of indifference or can we make a change in some way? Is it time to make different rules in police procedure and follow up with them? Is it time for black people to stand up and be progressive for their rights and also be responsible to each other in their actions?

If our leader or leaders cannot push for change then we must, as voters, elect new leaders. It is too long overdue to just let things go on the way they were in the past. it is time to do something, to change our ways, and to go further on to a better way of life.

I guess I am still a white privileged person in comparison to the average black person. A recent news statement said that it is an average $17l,000 to  $17,000 ratio of white verses black family wealth in the United States; I guess in assets; not saying I fit in that high end though.  That alone will make privilege a factor in life.

So, time for change, time for admission, time for a new way of life. Are we up to it?  It is overdue in the United States and in the World.

Masks and the Virus 2020-01

Masks and the Virus  2020-01

I must be stupid, because of many reasons.  My being older than 75 makes me vulnerable to the virus, so I do things to prevent getting this disease. BUT, being, at risk, I must contend with others that do not care about my wellbeing.

Going to the grocery store and mingling with those that don’t wear masks, for whatever reason, is a chore. It is a little exhausting to be aware of my being at risk and trying to do the right thing.  Those that do not wear masks are putting ME at risk and I resent it.

I confronted a woman who was blocking my way in an aisle and we did the right left with our carts for a moment or so and since the aisles were marked enter or no entry at the end of the aisle I knew I was going the correct way.  She looked at me and I had to ask why she did not have a mask as I pulled a spare out of my pocket. She shook her head no and said, “I do not wear masks.”

I told her I wear my mask to protect her in case I had the virus and she should do so also. She again, shook her head and barged past me. I guess she did not care.

The activists that are protesting against the lockdowns across the country, which are now being relaxed, that appear on state building front steps, armed to the teeth with AK-47’s, etc., usually do not wear masks either, but some do, I admit.  They also irk me, for they appear to be “loyal Americans” wanting their Amendment rights to be uphold somehow, but some have Confederate flags, swastika flags, etc., for some reason, at the same time and that is beyond understanding .

I was in the U.S. Marine Corps for four years, and, as a veteran, feel disgust for these individuals that want something they feel is theirs to have today.  Another matter, I guess.

Anyhow, I wear masks to protect others, to give myself some protection to a degree, and those that feel they have the right to NOT wear masks, can do so, but my feelings for them are negative. This is long, this is somewhat mild for me to state how I feel, but that is life…………………
