What Would Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Say Today?


Dear Good People,  What Would Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Say Today?

Are you concerned about the Future and Dream of Our Collective Humanity? 

 Where is our compassion, our commitment to democracy,  diplomacy, our dream & understanding of living together in Peace; caring for our brothers and sisters and helping all who are in need? 

Are YOU willing to work to end the diseases of classism, racism and religious subjugation?  

What Would Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Say Today?  

Certainly Our Uni-Versal Purpose is to have a Collective Heart of Compassion that Allows Us to Create a World of Equanimity and Peace with Shared Prosperity for All People, Regardless of Race or Religious Affiliation.  

Are we willing to Move Beyond Violence propagated by the media and those addicted to fear, control, guns and power so that We Become a Nation that Embraces Creativity, Education, Sustainability, Peace and Prosperity? 

What lessons  of the past can we share so that through our promises of peace, hope and healing in our communities, We Create a Better and New Reality? 

When will we empower and support courageous leaders who believe, hope and work for a Collective Love that Nurtures and Heals?  

Do we still find value in the Golden Rule----“Honor thy Mother and Father, Love Thy Neighbor As Thyself…. and… Thou Shalt Not Kill….” 

Mahatma Gandhi, the great peacemaker who never received a Nobel Peace Prize once said “An eye for an eye will leave the whole world blind.”  Nobel Prize winner Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. said "A true test of a man is not where he stands in a time of comfort and convenience but where he stands during a time of conflict and controversy."  

Many of the choices we are making and allowing our leaders to make are morally wrong.  Each life taken in violence, every continued obstacle to ensure voting rights or universal healthcare, every cut to education for our children, every dollar spent to make war barons wealthier, or every thought of the “Other” moves us away from Love. For the Other is YOU!  

Is this the World You Desire?   Is this the World we think is good enough for our Children’s Future?   

Breath Deeply and Exhale  Slowly Six Times.  
In Love. Out Hope and Cooperation with Love.   In Love.  Out Hope and Cooperation with Love.  In Love. Out Hope and Cooperation with Love. In Love. Out Hope and Cooperation with Love .... 

Today, and Every Day  as we honor the DREAM of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and Many other Courageous Civil Rights Foot Soldiers, let us acknowledge Truth.  

Yes, many of us do have broken hearts, and spirits, but we must embrace a dialogue of Hope with Good Actions of Bridge Building and Cooperation, Integrity and Patience. 

Our Uni-Versal Purpose Is to Have a Collective Heart of Compassion that Allows Us to Create a World of Equanimity and Peace with Shared Prosperity for All People; Regardless of Race or Religious Affiliation.

And Yes, We Must Have the Courage to Speak, and  Act With Good Purpose to Right the Wrongs of Our Society.  

Re-member that Peace Is Possible through Compassionate Actions, Cooperation, Creativity, Hope, Forgiveness, Integrity, Kindness, Mercy, Understanding, Wisdom and the Gift of  Love.

This New Year 2017, We Must Collectively Work to Assure Quality Education, Equity and Equanimity with Justice and Opportunity for ALL!  

Greatest Love!  Melony

Do Not Let Evil Paralyze Your Goodness!



Do Not Let Evil Paralyze Your Goodness! 

Beloveds, 

When you have been hurt, wounded or discouraged, simply stop and still your mind.  

Breathe Deeply Ten Times.

With each breath, Inhale Patience filled with the Oxygen of Love.  

Exhale Hurt, Pain and Disappointment. 

Take Your Time.  Keep Breathing Deeply.

It is true that we are living in a World where egotism, fear, materialism and violence have taken center stage in our economic, social and political arena.  

It is also true that those with small minds may try to destroy those who know Truth with deception and lies.

Those with small minds will try hard to distract you before their own inadequacy or fear of Equity and Good Change is discovered.  

This minority of people often will attempt to sabotage or undermine your positive intentions and actions. 

Evil ones may even try to rain on a joy parade or burst your bubble of enthusiasm and happiness.

They will use the media to confuse and suppress those who live with Integrity, Good Intention and Purpose.

Evil ones will attack Good Efforts of Progress and All those who speak out against evil.

You will be bombarded with so much negativity that if you are not careful, it can result in a loss of Hope.  

Do not let evil paralyze the Goodness In Your Hearts and Our World.

Re-Member Good Will Win through Our Courage, Our Faith, Our Persistent Integrity, Our Positive Tenacity, Our Hope and Our Consistent Good Efforts. 

Focus on Goodness and the Changes we must make to insure a Better World for Our Children.

Please do not try to fight evil with evil.  Do not become hateful or seek vengeance with your words.  

Stop filling your minds and hearts with useless evil propaganda.  Stop discussing, promoting and giving evil a platform. 

Stop Doubting Yourselves.  Stop Creating a Fearful Reality. 

Remember this-- When You Awaken and Walk In Truth, no matter the obstacles;  New Doors will appear through Grace.  

We Must Focus on Building Bridges of Creativity, Cooperation, Education, Healing, Equanimity, Justice, Economic Prosperity to Share and Peace. 

Try to  Keep Your Hearts Open. Walk Only with Right Thoughts, Words and Actions of Truth.

Love will reward you with the Courage and Faith to live with a Peaceful heart, unlimited creativity, energy and resources to manifest Our Collective Good Dreams.  

Breathe Deeply.   No Matter What--- Keep Moving Forward!  

Today, Give Thanks for Wisdom, Grace and the Unlimited Power of Love.

Always, Melony 

Peace Is Possible through Compassion, Cooperation, Courage, Creativity, Forgiveness, Hope, Integrity, Kindness, Mercy, Respect, Understanding and the Gift of Love!

About Genius and Compassion....


About Genius and Compassion....

Beloveds---

When Genius and Compassion came to live among us, they did not ask to be billionaires; for they knew that greed and love of money was destroying the Earth.

Genius and Compassion asked for a willingness to see the beauty in the Forgotten Familiar.

In every sunrise and sunset; in every fruit, flower and tree; in every birth, death and re-birth; through every storm or violent unnecessary war, Hope has become the Forgotten Familiar that makes it possible to Live and Honor the Power of Abiding Love.

Remembering that Genius and Compassion live within me, I Breathe Deeply and Exhale Slowly  Six Times. 

I open my heart and see the beauty in the Forgotten Familiar. 

Hope lives in trees and flowers and mountains and oceans. Hope grows with trust and in every child offers its smiles of Love.

To even the Unworthy among us.... Hope, the Forgotten Familiar is the Master Creator's constant offering of Forgiveness so that we may learn to live, work and prosper together in Peace with Abiding Love!

Peace is Possible through Compassion, Cooperation, Courage, Forgiveness, Hope, Integrity, Kindness, Mercy, Understanding and Abiding Love!

Always, Melony

Thanks Sedrick Gardner for the Beautiful Flower!

Thank You President Obama! Citizens, Forward Freedom!



Citizens, Forward Freedom! 

Thank You President Barack Obama, First Lady Michelle Obama, Vice President Joe Biden, Dr. Jill Biden and  All the Citizens of Our Democratic Society!   We Appreciate You! 

Citizens Forward Freedom! 

Like President Barack Obama, I believe that Compassion, Forgiveness and Mercy opens the door to Understanding and Reconciliation. It may take us time but the way forward always comes through respect and a desire to do no harm.

Wherever you are I invite you to join me. 

Take a moment and Breathe Deeply Ten Times. Let Us Offer Prayers of healing for Everyone as we have the courage to express our hearts and move forward with Nonviolent, Peaceful Actions.

These are challenging days in America.  Our great nation is divided by fear and disdain for one another.  Many of our communities are polarized and it appears that our dreams of equity and prosperity are lost in a tunnel of despair. 

So many are asking "How Can We Move Forward in the Face of Injustice?" 

The Truth Is throughout the United States, We are many hues of color and cultures and religions. 

We Are All Americans and as Citizens we are bound by a Constitution that says "Freedom, Justice and Liberty for All". 

And yet these words mean nothing if we the Citizens do not vote, or demand accountability, or work to resolve our differences. 

"Freedom, Justice and Liberty for All". 

The world is listening and watching. It is time to speak the Truth and admit both our failures and successes as a nation. Classism and Racism do exist. 

The Freedom of Our Children to grow and prosper as compassionate, hopeful, gifted, productive Citizens is thwarted by the pandemic of fear hate and violence that has permeated our society.

It is Our Collective Responsibility to come together in dialogue with respect, care and compassion for each other. We must fix the broken judicial, economic, educational, penal and governmental systems. 

For Our Children we must find a way to support and empower each other. 

There is no way sustain and improve America unless we open our hearts and commit to walk the path of Freedom. 

We Are Citizens Here Together. 

Let us listen to each other, search for understanding and if need be, share tears together. 

Citizens, let us work together, march together, laugh together, sing together and move forward together.

Let Us Breathe Deeply Together and Say Citizens Forward Freedom! 

Always,

Journey of Faith, Whispers of Love!

Journey of Faith, Whispers of Love!

Beloveds,

Beyond knowledge is the Hope that my Faith is strong enough to face the feared and unknown. "How will I walk?",  I ask myself. 

I clear my mind, sit in the quiet and Breathe Deeply Seven Times.

I Breathe In Love. I Exhale Fear.  I Breathe In Love. I Exhale Fear. I Breathe In Love. I Exhale Fear. I Breathe In Love. I Exhale Fear.  I Breathe In Love. I Exhale Fear.  I Breathe In Love. I Exhale Fear.  I Breathe In Love. I Exhale Fear.

The answer comes from the whispers of my heart. "First you must have the strength and courage to Trust. Then as Truth is revealed, you must face your fears and offer Kindness even to the one you perceive as your enemy. When you are able to transform your hate into Love with forgiveness, then you will grow in understanding." 

I Listen Deeply to the Whispers In My Heart.

I Breathe In Love. I Exhale Love. I Breathe In Love. I Exhale Love. I Breathe In Love. I Exhale Love.  I Breathe In Love. I Exhale Love. I Breathe In Love. I Exhale Love. I Breathe In Love. I Exhale Love.

Every change or answer we seek can be found in our ability to give up control and walk the path of the unknowing. It is always through the Journey of Faith that we come to know Everlasting LOVE.

As I move forward, I will re-member to Listen with Care and Compassion as I Honor and Embrace the Whispers of Love In My Heart.

I Believe that Peace is Possible through Compassion, Cooperation, Courage, Creativity, Forgiveness, Hope, Integrity, Kindness, Mercy, Respect, Understanding and--- The Grace of Love!

And So It Is With Love! 

Always, Melony

If You Don't Ask...



If You Don't Ask...

There is an old expression... 
"If you don't ask, you won't get!"  

Today I Breathe Deeply in Gratitude 
for the good changes I desire in my life.  

I align my mind with my heart and 
Breathe In Courage.  
I Exhale old remnants of fear.  

I Breathe Deeply and Exhale again.  

I  ask for Divine Assistance 
so that I may have the Fortitude 
and Tenacity I need to grow.

I make a promise to myself.
I will continue to make consistent 
efforts which allow me 
to make good changes in my life; 
and Grow in Love! 

With Gratitude and Courage, 
Tenacity and Fortitude;

I Breathe Deeply
and Step tenderly with JOY
into this New Day.

Always, Melony


Peace Is Possible through Compassion, Cooperation, Courage, Creativity, Education, Forgiveness,  Integrity, Kindness, Mercy, Respect, Understanding and the Gift of Love!

May I Be A Humble, Truthful Friend!


May I Be A Humble, Truthful Friend!

In the beauty of this Day, I stand in awe and give Gratitude to the Earth Angels that serve as Friends near and far.   

I Breathe Deeply and Exhale Slowly Six Times.

I offer the Master Creator appreciation and Gratitude for the Gifts of Friends that have stood by me throughout time, and helped me see the radiance of Love within myself.

I Breathe slowly and deeply.   

With JOY, I ask for guidance so that I too may always be a humble, truthful friend with integrity that mirrors compassion, loyalty, patience, strength with lustre and Love throughout Eternity!

Always, Melony
