"It seems Justin Ireland, the photographer, found a way to blend the color red with light in such a way the model, Haley Davis , is transformed from a form of athleticism to the water elements of seduction. My hat off to the photographer." - Gregory E. Woods, Keeper of Stories 8.20.15

Elegant Anywhere

"To hold an image, a woman, an idea of self is a caress. The dream of doing such a thing is being that thing you see yourself doing and becoming. It is all touch. You touch a moment. You touch a body. You touch a soul and stir life. You touch upon an idea. You become someone. You open yourself to touch and ideas and possibilities. It is all the magic we are engaged in that spoils the idea of cannot." ~ Gregory E. Woods 12.6.13

The Problem with Truth

"It does not take many words to tell the truth." - Sitting Bull
 "Inside of me there are two dogs. One is mean and evil and the other is good and they fight each other all the time. When asked which one wins I answer, the one I feed the most." - Sitting Bull
"What treaties that the whites have kept, that the red man broken?Not one.What treaties that the white man gave to us they kept?Not one." - Sitting Bull

A Story of Children

The Original Question is a concern:

How does one react when their childcare/babysitter deliberately lies and are in denial with an addiction problem? I would suggest ceasing any and all authority for them to continue the care. Even if this childcare giver is your mother, father, husband etc.. When it comes to children, you better ensure all safety and precautions are in place. Be a Smart Parent!! Coco Rosario

"You answered your own question. My suggestion is to stay home with the child reducing what many parents think are important reasons to work outside the home." - Gregory 
"For some, the "one parent" is all there is that are the sole provider for the fam....time to shuffle and be creative for many. You are right, brother. I am sure many will appreciate your comments as well." - Coco  

You are right, Coco about single parent homes, and that leaves a gaping hole in the hope of raising children without the threats to children's safety. Re-programming the thinking of the collective is the largest answer to a complex problem with simple roots. The question to ask is directed to belief systems of our culture. "Are we willing to discover what we really believe?" 

Look at the proverbs we say, but cannot incorporate into our living. Example: "It takes a village to raise a child." That African proverb is a nice cliche, but creating the intimate climate into our families of such a village, or expanding that into neighborhoods cannot happen if the cultural proverbs stresses pulling one's self up by his own boot straps. You see what I mean? 

What we say we believe. What we believe we say. What we hope for is not without work to ascend towards like flowers leaning towards sunlight. It is work to become a village because we thought the idea of progress was to move away from the village. We believe we have arrived and our society is the optimal, and that village life is beneath us.

You see the problem? The problem is the challenge. You see what is within us? Belief is stronger than religion. Overcoming social problems is spiritual work, and in a culture that prides itself in separation of church and state incorporating the spiritual principles of an African culture that does not separate Life into parts something is not going to fit, and will only exist as a proverb, a cliche in our culture. 

Now that circle I've drawn brings us back to your original concern, "How does one react when their child care/baby sitter deliberately lies and is in denial with an addiction problem?" and your observation, "For some, the "one parent" is all there is that are the sole provider for the family. (It is) time to shuffle and be creative for many..."

Expressed differently

Miss Mischief December 31, 2012 

Become the Sky 

Inside this new love, die.
Your way begins on the other side.
Become the sky.
Take an axe to the prison wall.
Walk out like someone suddenly born into color.
Do it now.
You’re covered with a thick cloud.
Slide out the side.
Die, and be quiet.
Quietness is the surest sign that you’ve died.
Your old life was a frantic running from silence.
The speechless full moon comes out now.
~ Rumi

Maximize Your Potential
Rev. Dr. Sinclair Grey III

In this spiritual journey, you must understand that you have power on the inside that's greater than any negative influence on the outside. You need to know that setbacks will arise in your life in order to take your attention off what you were meant to become and shift your attention on what you can't become. The good news is that God loves you so much that He can take what was meant to destroy you and use it to elevate you. All you need to do is decide that you won't settle for settling. It's not too late. Set your mind on accomplishing your goal and work towards it daily. The only thing stopping you is YOU. God is ready to elevate you but you must have enough faith in Him to trust Him.

The writer of Proverbs deposited these words of wisdom, "Commit to the Lord whatever you do, and your plans will succeed." Please don't miss this. Whatever God has given you, He expects you to use it. Failure to use what God has given you is just like slapping God in the face and calling Him a failure. I have news for you - God is not a failure and neither are you. Whatever God has placed in you, it's time to use it. Don't wait, hesitate, or procrastinate - the time is now. From this day forward, tell yourself and others that you will begin maximizing your potential. - 12.6.13

mature Black woman talking to a young white man!!!!

"Funny seeing it this way, but it is true. Strong women do scare weak men, but strong women can also strengthen men. Strength need not be an intimidating force to brag about or lord over the weaken soul. Used thus it becomes something else easily manipulated by what becomes fear in the midst of intimidation: envy, retribution, fear again and finally a type of sorcery many don't recover from. Strength is either a medicine or the bane of existence." - Gregory E. Woods, Keeper of Stories 12.6.13

What cycle?

One comfortable day after noon on the 30th day of August in 2012, a moment in time was frozen, not by a camera, but by Tülay Bayrak's presence and the form, the shape of her body's understanding of it's self. I wish I could say I'd seen the image without the camera's memory of her. But, however viewed it is an illustration of an art form young men need to grasp from the inside of their beings at levels of comprehension higher than the preceding generations of accomplished men of Power. They can't, and neither can anyone else not take the cyclical shift we are in and have been in in ever widening ways seriously!

In the transfer of touch things are happening outside of the limited spectrum of logic. Cycles overlap. They destroy and build themselves anew. Our bodies house awareness. In the center of our awareness we can be aware that the center of centrifugal, and centripetal  forces are sharing a center point of existence we can easily call 'aware intelligence. Its logic is its own without familiar guidelines a person can be comfortable with if, indeed said person is asleep out of fear. Ideally, the hope of many were instantaneous changes would seize the earth and its inhabitants on the proposed date of prophecies because those people lived outside of themselves. They pretend their awareness does not live in their bodies because they believe their bodies are temporal, and do not deserve a healthy relationship with their spirits.

This division is definitive of religion; itself a body of awareness. Held captive awareness becomes dangerous, and dogma can become oppressive, stagnant, and dark prophesies rooted in fear will begin to dance in concert with domination and division. That dance asks how much of the prophecies of the Mayan, John and others were missed and misinterpreted out of fear, and out of body experiences? This dance poses the new questions for the new cycle.

How long will the next cycle last is immaterial. Only the present is important. The three directions of awareness are in the one. It is easy mathematics  The composition of the present is three. It is in the past. It is the present and the future in the one, and the succeeding moments. Not understood this equation is in the heavens and upon the Earth, our Mother. What is seen in the heavens has happened. In the present we stand, and with the capacity of the mind can plan, dream or glimpse the future. These three are one.

- Gregory E. Woods

Letter to a woman I don't know

"I love Indians. I find them all to be so inspirational. I have been diagnosed with Cancer of my right kidney and I want to be blessed by a group or an individual Indian instead of a chaplain  I know this sounds really weird but I believe the way they worship more than any other religious group out there. They are spiritual and they are beautiful people that I completely adore. I am seriously looking for a true Indian spiritual blessing. So if anyone can point me in that direction, I would be completely appreciative. Indians are the most charismatic people and I love them all. Just wanted to post that. Thank you for accepting me to the group." - Jenn

To protect your innocence I have to think.

I sense the awe and admiration you have for Native people, but you have cancer and the body demands of you things outside of this kind of worship. The medicines you will need can be hindered by the things you dwell upon. It is the words we start our healing processes, Jenn. Another spirit needs to come out of you to bring the healing and the healers to you. There is a lot to healing and the illusions have to be the first to go. Illusions are like fog over the Earth, our Mother. Moving through the mist is as important as 'seeing' the story of what ails you.

The Proposal

Michelle Suy-Sam

Michelle Suy-Sam
August 15, 2013

There are a lot of thoughts stirred in me when I catch glimpses of the lives led by Vietnamese people living in the United States. I think of the Vietnam war, its contradictions, the tragedies, the needless deaths, and the lives the US government is morally bound to take care in the aftermath of that war. By now it is the children of the Vietnamese men and women whose memories of the war are fresh living the American life. Those Vietnamese's children are now Americans and what that means is not a national topic, but it is of interest to me. As is the nature of children children try to fit in, and Vietnamese-American children are not different in that respect. So, how are they living? What is their mindset? 

I often want to be privy to the discussions these young people have with their parents and their peers. Many of them don't speak their mother tongue, or know enough of their family history one could assume. I don't know. I am reaching. How do they fare in American towns and cities? What compromises were made to go to school, to make a living and get along with white and Black Americans. 

There is the above picture of a Michelle Suy-Sam , who is the girlfriend of Theien Thy Huynh Nguy, squatting in front of her lover's sports car. Theien Thy Huynh Nguy (pictured below) was born in Ho Chi Minh, Vietnam. Today she lives and works in California in retail, and has a side business in diet pills. She apparently lives comfortable. She is deep in the glamour of being an American woman with all the frills and perks. But, how is she living, and culturally how does she manage? Is she deeply invested in the white girl thing? I say that because that aspiration (being white) leads second and third generations of immigrants that way because American culture awards white women handsomely, and shits upon the images of Black women without looking back. Given a choice in American society being as close to white as possible is encouraged until a rude awakening occurs. I'd love to know more about these things. I am just curious about their coping mechanisms. 

I stood next to a frightened woman, who was obviously mixed Black American and Vietnamese, once in Washington DC. I know she was a social outcast. I've met a couple of Hmong men, and learned their stories. Last night I saw a fun interview on The TALK. The Chinese action star and director, Charlie Chan, his father, at 80 years of age, admitted to him he was a spy, that Charlie's family name is Fong, and the reason his father was an embassy cook in parts of the world was because he was in hiding!

There are a lot of things the various cultures of the Asian communities experience and deal with they keep out of the public forum, and gossip columns  How they've succeeded I don't know, and won't venture to guess. But, it is admirable and worthy of consideration. I firmly believe Black American's tactics for cultural liberation, and economic independence are based upon ideological falsehood. I am convinced we need to study the Japanese in depth to grasp what they did since the bombing we inflicted upon them in World War II. Our focus is wrong and off-center. Ideally, it would sound great and logical to frame our strategies and thinking on ancient African civilizations, but in reality we, Black Americans, are fixated upon identifying with White Americans. Our identity is centered upon their approval, and the journey from the slave mentality is not finished. As White Black People (Wasicun Sapa) we have to be transformed by a renewing of our minds. The fortitude of the Asian communities in our midst needs to be studied from the embrace of relationship and cooperation because the Black American community is rich in attributes that can benefit anyone keen of intellect and integrity.

Black woman undressing

breasts of a Black woman held by her

"Sampson stood between pain and belief, love for, and service to his People, the God of Creation, and the fires boiling in him for the woman he loved, and had to be inside of, and lost a conflict. The conflicts of great men are different from regular men steeped in mediocrity and the mundane. Their conflicts are of a complex nature because of the dual tasks of being ordinary and approachable, and dark and deep within the responsibilities of the strong man of God, and country. If it has taken centuries to retell and fathom the complexity of Sampson how much study of self is required of the strong men in modern times?

Spiritual sciences advance ahead of the intellectual developments of mankind in some seasons, and in other seasons it is the reverse. One element often out of place within men are the emotions. The intelligence of emotions is in the landscape emotions dwell and occupy with imagination, and deception. They are led by a wise Eunuch sometimes who has no commitment to the directions he can lead a soul. Other times emotions are led by a steely brand of soldier, and there are the multiple times emotions are led by women in command of the forces between their legs.

"Pussy and divinity; one comes from the other. Which came first?" This question came to me in my Dreamtime some years ago,and it is a question Sampson had to answer one way or another. For Sampson Delilah's pussy and her love for him and what she could do to a man was intoxicating to both her and the mighty Sampson. How he answered the question without counsel undermined the inner strength he possessed that was balanced by several sources of power from elements that sustain Earth, Dreams, and Creation. Coming from different places Sampson was created by prayers, love, angst, pity, sorrow, brutality and revenge. The divine source of his being came from and was captivated by the strongest source of power upon the Earth: the Womb of his Mother and the Wombs of his lovers.

A woman is never the weakness of the man's strength. She is a weakness to weak men, but to strong men the essence of her being is primal to his thinking and his existence suckles nightly on who he is man to, and during the day burns a fire he cannot quench when her legs open unto him the secrets of divinity, spiritual resources of camaraderie, and give him access to the higher creatures in the higher realms. There was nothing simple or childish about Sampson as a man, a Judge over Israel, or as the savior of his people. Jesus also deserves fair assessment as a man by men in these times as manhood is dragged before a league of nations to be judged for past misdeeds. Those misdeeds center around the penis, and men's inability to take on the mantle of strength of responsibility and be a Protector, a Priest-Warrior, a good son, wise husband, and a friend, in the deepest sense of the word. Worse of all was the unacceptable misunderstanding of Power. For that men are judged by the energies they created through rape of children, women, and other men.

Manhood is a deep calling from one lifetime to another. It is not a wonder why some in between worlds cannot amass the courage it takes to be a man in any lifetime and seeks to cross the gender lines in this lifetime because science has merged with soul loss and created a technology without the guidelines of divinity.

Parenting LIGHT

Parenting the Light of the World is erroneously thought to be the exclusive role of Mary, his mother. That assumption stopped creative processes the world over as women in every country birthed light into the world. It is a special privilege raising light. Believing there was only one light limits that light and intimidates the light out of lives that could do better than Jesus' life. It was his fervent wish that we do better and more than he and live life more abundantly. Belief, since he expressed that wish, suppressed creative people's dreams. In other words mothers and fathers suffocated the possibility and the notion of another child becoming a Messiah simultaneously killing the unction within many spirits to be God-like and create with the power Jesus said we had access to. To make it plainer, the Church didn't believe a cotton pickin' thing Jesus said that required more than rudimentary belief in authority, and blind obedience to simple rules.

In a very real sense belief became a 'mother fucker'. I say that with heaviness and deep sensitivity to the negative power and connotation of the word. Motherfucker is one of the two most despised words in the English language to me, but in this instance it is a logical fit into understanding the bad programming we live with as a society! The word speaks to a horrible thought process, and tells the long story of an awful assimilation into mediocrity twenty centuries of people have submitted themselves to as a superior force outside of nature because they couldn't and didn't believe and understand what Jesus said and meant as a legacy for the following generations!

Children's Magic Potions

Kim Geyer Author/Illustrator
June 6, 2013

Where dreams come from and land in our daily lives is dependent upon the childhood we had and the child we maintained within us as adults to balance the inconsistencies of adulthood. It is a way of playing within one's self. The rigid and self-righteous eventually swell and bust, and the resilient swell with joy and are in awe of small miracles. They bust too, but don't wind up insane. A child's crazy sparks the genius that gives us insights into the mysterious forces governing our lives, and developing our art of living. 

There is a lot to be said about children, and a lot to remember, or envy for some, and a lot to cherish and as an adult finger through for the pearls. But, this is a wonderful dream to the many who define adulthood suspiciously, and disdain the innocence of children's magic. Easily these people become part of the administrative end of education departments and undermine the development of children with skill and aplomb! - Gregory E. WoodsKeeper of Stories 10.31.13

Secrets within the SACRED & the Profane

 - Dawn Wolf, Keeper of Stories 10.30.13

Pregnancy is the time of secrets unleashed into the open air. Each culture treats pregnancies with its inherent horrors and honors differently. For women of each society their lives, and what their lives will mean is made clear during the months of pregnancy. Ideally, it is a time for men standing deep in their manhood who are redefining their masculinity for the sanctity, and security of their wife's spirit, and the strength of their growing families. The reality is different for far too many. More than anything else women's fragility is dependent upon the perception and definition of manhood. Men determine the terror of women's plight as mothers, or are the support of their honoring, their safety, and their tranquility.

Poverty has a lot to do with the tranquility of a woman's pregnancy, as well as wealth. But, the physicality of wealth or poverty is subservient to the state of being pregnant and honored, cherished and loved by the father. If women shopped, drove, dreamed, planned, worked, raised families, and got old in matriarchal societies this would be a different conversation, and pregnancies, and masculinity and fears would be wholly different in texture and the context of the sacred would be colored different. But, we don't. - Gregory E. Woods, Keeper of Stories 10.30.13

In Waters Where Whales Live . .

"In waters where whales live I dreamt, but never swam. I can't swim in water. I can flow in dreams in time with the ebb and flow of water, as I did and remember doing in my mother's womb. The dance in the womb is not different from dancing beneath the sea, the ocean, or the rivers of water upon the land. What is different is the safety of one, and the inherent dangers of the others.

Not being able to swim in either of the oceans I've waded in both from either side with the whales invisible to me, but present to themselves. The Black ancestors from one ocean, and the Red relatives from the other oceans don't sing of me, they murmur below where it is audible for me to discern their languages. I can intuit the stories of Africans in the Atlantic. Feeling every emotion from their individual lives during the Middle Passage I cannot enter the Atlantic until I leave an offering of tobacco with my words. Those moments come across as magical pulls into the deep where I suddenly realize it was at a place of no return, and began to feel the panic of drowning. As terrible and terrifying as panic is panic creates spontaneous actions and creative ideas surface. Drowning in those waters, and remembering I had not Medicine powers with Water Spirits the idea to let go as a child was revolutionary and it saved my life..." - Gregory E.

The words he clung to in his life, and up to his death were his mother's words in his mouth continuing to shape him to the revelation of his Death! Isn't that something to consider?

In the deeper sessions with men sitting in Sacred Teaching Circles I have conducted the revelation of these deep insights into the Sacred Feminine we must all plunge into before our initiations the teachings of Solomon's mother must embed themselves within each man..." © Gregory E. Woods 10.17.12

Mayrah, the Wind that Blows the Winter Away – Australian

AT the beginning of winter, the iguanas hide themselves in their homes in the sand; the black eagle hawks go into their nests; the garbarlee or shingle-backs hide themselves in little logs, just big enough to hold them; the iguanas dig a long way into the sand and cover up the passage behind them, as they go along. They all stay in their winter homes until Mayrah blows the winter away. Mayrah first blows up a thunderstorm. When the iguanas hear the thunder, they know the spring is not far off, so they begin making a passage to go out again, but they do not leave their winter home until the Curreequinquin, or butcher birds sing all day almost without ceasing "Goore, goore, goore, goore."

Then they know that Mayrah has really blown the winter away, for the birds are beginning to pair and build their nests. So they open their eyes and come out on the green earth again. And when the black fellows hear the curreequinquins singing "Goore, goore," they know that they can go out and find iguanas again, and find them fatter than when they went away with the coming of winter. Then, too, will they find piggiebillahs hurrying along to get away from their young ones, which they have buried in the sand and left to shift for themselves, for no longer can they carry them, as the spines of the young ones begin to prick them in their pouch. So they leave them and hurry away, that they may not hear their cry. They know they shall meet them again later on, when they are grown big. Then as Mayrah softly blows, the flowers one by one open, and the bees come out again to gather honey. Every bird wears his gayest plumage and sings his sweetest song to attract a mate, and in pairs they go to build their nests. And still Mayrah softly blows until the land is one of plenty; then Yhi the sun chases her back whence she came, and the flowers droop and the birds sing only in the early morning. For Yhi rules in the land until the storms are over and have cooled him, and winter takes his place to be blown away again by Mayrah the loved of all, and the bringer of plenty.
