I thought why must it be so hard? Is it because I am black or because I am a woman?
And I know that this is no so. Because God does not reward nor punish people, neither with good nor with bad. Neither does God punish our enemies on our behalf.
We attract to us all that we experience.
And some may say well you can say that because you always seem to have something to be grateful for in your #Gratitude Journal. And I would tell them:
I remember the day I spent 8 hours in meditation deciding whether I wanted to be a #successfulfailure“. whether I wanted to call up on all my “bad” experiences, my childhood and make it #mylifestory. I did not! Because I would be living a lie.
When they told me as a child I use to wash a basins of clothes by myself and was abuse, I did not remember that. I remember washing a basin of clothes by myself and listening to the release of #NelsonMandela on my Walkman and tears of joy streaming down my face. That’s what I remember and I would not give that experience up for a million dollars. (well maybe 1M. lol)
When they told me that I use to eat half a chicken wing as my dinner and that was unfair, I did not remember. What I remember was skipping, not walking or running up the road to buy 1 pound of chicken-backs and having just enough to buy a chocolate bonbon biscuit which I enjoyed to the fullest. Then skipping back home singing and picking every leave in the back yard and green bananas and breadfruit and limes from the garden to make the most awesome meals. I would not give up the fact that I have learnt to cook like any master chef for a million dollars ( well maybe for 1M. lol)
When I did not see or speak to my mother for seven years and I could not even call her mommy on her return, I was suppose to be sad, to be damaged to never forgive or forget. But all I remember was me having imaginary concerts in the backyard by myself, singing and dancing with the trees to vintage Soca and conscious reggae. I would not give up the blessing of having an open mind not hampered by parental influence for a million dollars. ( well maybe if was in cash. lol)
When I did not grow up with my father, I was suppose to be damaged. I should have had daddy issues. but I did not. I could not claim that and not be living a lie. Because even though I have seen my father for a handful of days in my life and spoken to him even less I learnt from him one of the greatest lessons of my life. I learnt that I had to take care of myself and not to depend on another to do it. (that in itself is a million dollar lesson)
When my friend Andrea Marcellin and I use feed all the members of our church on Sunday and stay without food because there was not enough, I should have felt hungry and depress and poor. But I did not. I remembered the joy of peeping to see everyone clean off their plate and chatting and laughing until evening service. (Would I give that up for one million? maybe if it was a bank transfer)
I should have developed a complex when they told me that I was neglected. When they said your mother should have taken you to the dentist. but I did not feel that way. even thought I never smile through school, it never stop me finding love I have been blessed to have been in love and to have been loved. So I cannot give up my experiences and claim to have a sad story. Because I do not.
Even thought they say sad story sells. I have been happy. With the little I had I have been happy, Many people get rich in the hope of gaining happiness and realise that money cannot buy happiness. So when you have, be carful how much you accept for your happiness.
We have come to live to gain experiences, to live and to be happy, if you have that you are already half way there. Rise above your sad stories, leave them behind, do yourself a favour and be happy. it is the best gift you can give yourself and the best offering you can bring to your God.

A couple days ago I read that Donald trump is the Republican Party presumptive nominee and on November 8th 2016 he will go up against either Bernie Sander or Hilary Rodham Clinton for the United States Presidency.
From the day Mr Trump announced his bid fro presidency, the United States the media and the internet have bombarded us with suggestion of what to think and what to believe. Many of us have hated Trump and Trump supported, we have laughed and criticized Trump. We Judged and condemned Trump. We have believed all the Propaganda created to deceive us and we have been afraid.
But fear is false evidence appearing real. The evidence will show that there is nothing to fear but fear itself.
On June 16th 2012, Donald J Trump announced his presidential bid to the world in a short speech given in his trump tower in New York City. No big words, No rhetoric, and none of the usual empty promises clothed in long paragraphs saying nothing.
None of us bothered to read the statement of find out is there was more to Mr. Apprentice, well I did not, until yesterday. In all my years on this planet, I have never voted for any political party. I have never read any political statement in its entirety. But I read this one from beginning to end and it brought tears to my eyes. It is so easy to believe what we have been told. So easy to go with the flow, to follow the general consensus, so easy not to have to create an original THOUGHT. So easy to be afraid and to hate.
Mr. Trump statement pointed to a Nation that had no clue. He mentioned a few facts that every American would agree was shocking. He mentioned the fact that America through ingenious methods found ways to fund and supply weapons to ISIS and other Waring factions. He mentioned the 2300 armored vehicles (Humvee) left on the battle field for ISIS. He mentioned a 5 billion dollar website created by the government which has never worked. I created my website for nothing. He said that Politician’s were all talk and no action and that they would not bring Americans to the promise land. He said what we all know, that politicians were controlled fully by the lobbyist, by the donors and by the special interest groups.
He claimed that he was going to make America great again. He pointed out the fact that America and American had tremendous potential and tremendous people. He said that America had all the cards but they did not know how to use it. They did not even know that they had the cards because the leaders of the country did not understand the game. He pointed out a fact that America had an 18 trillion dollar debt that was rising and nothing but problems and that he would make his country rich again.
What was wrong with that? Is that not the American Dream?
But instead of hearing this, we heard something else. We heard the president say that he was a joke. We heard comments on his looks, slurs against his wife, misrepresentation of his words. We saw propagandist paid to attend his conventions to cause trouble, and we believed it, all of it. We were grateful; we did not have to think. And so we became afraid.
We were now afraid that Trump would build a wall between Mexico on the United States. No one remembered that every country has boarders between them and that America was already known for the longest boarder between itself and Canada which is a wall any way you look at it.
We were now afraid that trump would stop Muslims from entering the United States. No one wondered how do you know who is and who is not a Muslim; it was not as if it was written on our faces? And was it better to brand Muslims as terrorist, destroy their countries than make a decision for your nation that would reduce the amount of lives lost on both at home and abroad?
We were now afraid of everything. Trump was anti everything. And everyone was afraid. From President to Actors to Singers to the common man, It was time to be afraid, to take stand, to separate, to withdraw, to shut down, time to create a consciousness of fear.
Many of us believe that the Hitler’s and the Botha’s are simply waiting in the wing for an opportunity to wreak havoc. But the truth is that bad situations and bad leaders are created out of the consciousness of the people. A people continuously existing in a consciousness of, victimization, Inferiority, racism, blame, hatred, anger and fear will inevitable create a victimizer and will create the very situation it fears. What we fear the most we will attract.
But luckily there is nothing to fear. Particularly not from Trump. A reporter asked Trump how you are going to get people to vote for you, you are not a nice person. And his response was “This is an election based on competency, people are tired of nice people”.
He said his father told him “don’t go into Manhattan, that’s the big leagues, we don’t know anything about that, don’t do it.” His responded “I have to go into Manhattan, I got to build those big buildings, I got to do it dad, I have got to”
There may be a lot more to this man than what he is being portrayed as. He speaks his truth and lives his truth. We can hardly say the same for other politicians. Instead of believing what is being said, it is time to create a new Thought about things. It is time to stop being afraid and time to love, to love ourselves so much that we can take time out to seek and to find out the truth.
The truth is that, there is nothing to fear but fear itself..

I read an article today on Facebook saying 160 countries are set to sign up to the worlds “DEAL” to TACKLE and COMBAT climate change today, Friday, earth day. How ironic.
“Climate Change” What exactly is climate change? Change to what, exactly? Does anyone know? Does anyone care? The climate changes every day. We have winter, summer, autumn and spring. We have hot weather and cold weather. We have rain and we have sunshine. So what change are we going for? No one really knows and to be quiet frank I am not sure anyone really cares to find out.
As usual, there is nothing good in this DEAL for us, or for the planet. And as usual while the DEAL is being signed we have been once again distracted.
PRICE IS DEAD OMG! And the world has signed away it’s right to be free and take care of it’s planet.
Well Mr. David Cameron. That’s okay . If we told you not to sign, if we matched, if we protested, even if we caused a riot and a scene, if we put up placards you would do what you had to do any way. You have giving us the climate change party, you wrote the slogan and the manifesto, you have scared us shirtless with you propaganda, I am beginning to think I need to go to the north pole myself to see if the snow has really melted. As usual Mr Cameron, the government of the world have pissed in our eyes and called it rain. You desire climate change! You wish for it! You created it! And you think we can do nothing about it. YOU ARE SO MISTAKEN, YOU DON’T EVEN KNOW WHO YOU ARE DEALING WITH!!!
The world is awake! In my country we say “La Ter eclewa” We are enlightened. We know better.Go ahead, sign you treaties and your DEALs, believe your illusions that you have the power. That was yesterday’s news, today is a different day. The world has taken back it’s power.
The change you seek, is change in your pockets. The change you seek only serves to dis empower the rest of the world and allow you your freedom to finish off what you have started. You and you fellow world leaders.
The UN Framework Convention on climate change reached it land mark on 12th December 2016 after four years of negotiations and two decades of global climate efforts. And during that time we have experienced the worse climate ever. It never crossed you mind that you and your fellow world leaders are creating this with the help of all of us. Maybe that was where you were going in the first place? hhhmmhh? As I said, you are pissing in our eye and you call it rain. But it is not rain.
- Reaffirm the goal of limiting global temperature rise to 2 degrees while urging effort to limit it to 1.5. Why increase it at all, especially when this has been the average level of the resent increase which brought us to where you say we don’t want to be?
- Establish binding commitments by all parties to make Nationally Determined Contributions NDCs. Do you think we are stupid, Mr Prime Minister? Why have a DEAL signed, if the the contributions are determined by each country? Why the need for it to be binding? Another Law, another restriction. If you want “climate change why should you be bound to it?
- Commit all Countries to report regularly on their emission, and have their progress towards achieving their NDCs reviewed. Not commit to a reduction but commit to reporting. Seriously, whose running the world, what must you be thinking?
- Commit to submission of new NDCs every five years. In other words don’t worry if your emission increase just increase you NDC budget, that’s okay.
- Reaffirm binding obligation of developed countries to support developing countries, while for the first time the developing countries can make contribution. Really?
- Extend the current goal of mobilizing $100 Billion a year in support to 2020 with the intention to increase this to a higher goal by 2025. And now we see what this whole deal is about. As usual Money. Where is this 100 billion going to be spent? I may not be a world leader be I think if you wish to limit the gas emission and stop the temperature from rising it would be best to get back to nature, back to the land, not produce more, to sell more, to reach the 100 billion target. what are we going to do with it? PAY GOD TO REDUCE THE TEMPERATURE AND STOP THE CARBON FOOTPRINT? Mr Cameron, you and your world leaders may fool many people a lot of the time, but you can’t fool me. I see all of it. You don’t want climate to change for the better, you want it worse so you can scare the world into working so hard to pay more taxes to give you and your boys some change in your pockets. I LOL!
- Extend a mechanism to address “loss and damage” resulting from climate change, which EXPLICITLY will NOT “involve or provide a basis for liability or compensation. Need I say more? I almost puked reading this. This states clearly and any primary school child can explain it. YOU WILL NOT BE HELD ACCOUNTABLE! But that’s okay, Mr Obama, it okay Mr Cameron, it okay to all the world leaders. You may not be accountable to us, the citizens of the world, but, you will account. One way or another, this is how the world work. “whosoever diggeth a pit shall fall in it, you bury in it”
- Require international emission trading to avoid double counting. What? So you can now claim that your emission is mine and mine is yours? please….
- Call for emission reductions in one country to be counted towards another country. The last two are saying the same thing, world leaders, we are not stupid. we not fools. get off your high horses and be normal. this is your world too. you have no escape. Or do you?
The french president was given great thanks for for his “deft” diplomacy in getting this DEAL signed. What is “deft?” OH now I realize why France was in the news so much leading up to and during the summit. Terror attach after terror attach. Threat after threat.
You can think the world is asleep all you want, you can think we don’t read, all we do is watch TV. You may think”I can sell ice to these Eskimos” but you are wrong. Mr. David Cameron take you DEAL and stick where the sun don’t shine. The sun shines over here. I am in Northern Ireland and the sun is shining and it is 11 degrees and we love it. And we are happy with our climate and we say to you, sign you treaties, celebrate your DEALS but leave our climate to us. We may not see the big picture, but we know someone who does. And we are close, that one and us. And we know that one has the power to say” let there be light” and for there to be light. Or “let there be fishes of many kinds” and for multitude of fishes to appear.
So we say, the climate is fine. We don’t desire change. it is perfect. We can control our weather, we know how now. We can make it warm or cold, we can create ice, rain or sunshine. You don’t even know what we can do.
TAKE YOUR DEAL AND STUFF IT.
Happy earth day everyone….
