Remembrance Of The Spiritual Life With Janet Jackson***messymandella***

         It is natural and you are expected to mourn deceased family members during the holiday seasons,due to accidental death or by the Lynch Mob       the corrupt police department, and we also don’t mind when we kill each other…

 

          However, in our society if you are single on Valentine’s Day, you are a failure according to the diamond companies, Hallmark and commercialism of Valentine’s Day.  If you do not receive  an abundance of materialistic presents on Christmas, then you may feel inclined to lie about everything you received. More gifts, means you have more loved? People assume that after a funeral that you are gone. In the casket, it is a shell of that person and even though you may not be able to hug or talk to them, they are not spiritually gone. Your spirit and energy doesn’t die, just the shell of your former self, you still have that person and you can feel when their is an indication that your loved one is still loving you, looking over and protecting you.

        It was a story of a man that entered a home and was about to burglarize and assault a woman but he ran away. The police did eventually located the fleeing burglar, but asked him, “Why did you run?” He told the police,”Because of those two men standing behind her.” Later they asked the lady about the two men that were there and she was puzzled because she was by herself the entire day. NO ONE was there,or so she thought… 
 
        We don’t leave this world, and you can be confident in knowing what ever you believe about the spiritual world,realize people can share connections even if they never have met. If energy doesn’t die, and the spirit doesn’t die then your loved ones are still here in spirit. NO, not like a ghost town or anything like that, but a spirit that will give you strength when you feel you are alone.
 
         You can feel their energy hovering around you and just understand that you will behold their smile again and you will have a opportunity to hear them laugh again. They are fully aware of your bereavement, but they are no longer in anguish and unrest, we are the ones that suffer,now.
 
             If the connection is that strong you know that their presence is not far behind you and you can feel their love around you. You may be devastated in this point of time, but their spirit is dancing in the moonlight, so just try to dry some of those tears and don’t hold on to blame, mistrust, or arguments that were never resolved. They are still here,even if you don’t recognize your loved ones presence they are still smiling back at you.

REVISITED: Ledisi: Colorism And Ignorance Inside Of Black Women***messymandella***

Sista-Beauty-Talent

I have always wondered about colorism. I  am short, light skin, and a weave queen. Some women would describe that as “fake.”

I tell them get your hair out that ponytail holder,get an upgrade. I also know that people who wear natural hair at times thinks that brings them closer to the “Motherland.” I’m here to tell you, that you can ignorant about your culture,no matter what you think. Hair does not advertise  your intelligence.

I myself have made jokes about Ledisi not being pretty. I am so sorry for that. In my ignorance, I succumbed to racism. I apologize for anyone else that has laughed at her or called her ugly. She has dark skin, big lips, and big eyes. She is  Beautiful. Women are the worst critics of other women. Oh honey, I know.

Ledisi, admitted in an interview that she never thought she was ugly until she became a Neo Soul Powerhouse. In her book she discusses her looks and her definition of  beauty. Here is an exerpt:

LEDISI- “In the book, there’s a chapter called ‘Beauty’: I talk about how I tell myself ‘I’m beautiful’ everyday because the world says something different. I didn’t know I was considered ‘ugly’ to someone until they said it, because all of my life I’d been told I was beautiful, especially by my mother in particular, so when I got out there in the world, I heard differently.

There are also other versions of beauty out there and I talk about those, saying that the woman we typically would consider ‘beautiful’ may look that way on the outside to the rest of the world, but on the inside, she may be ‘broken.’ There are so many things in other chapters that I talk about: ‘Love.’ ‘Forgiveness.’ ‘Faith.’ ‘Exiting Stage Left,’ all of these different aspects that we can learn from. Men may enjoy some parts of “…..Alright,” since there are men that I celebrate—there’s a quote from President Obama inside that speaks to learning from your failures, for example—but it’s especially for women because I am a woman and that’s all I can really  talk about (laughs). The book has a lot of great stuff inside that I’m proud of: photographs that I’ve never shown, pictures of family members that I don’t really talk about (publically) and those are the people who really helped me to get to where I am.”

Ledisi,

You Are Beautiful!

Doesn’t matter what anyone ignorant says.You actually have pretty teeth,and gorgeous chocolate skin.

I wonder can the people that call YOU ugly, say the same thing?
