Brussels

A Poem by The Prophet of Life

BRUSSELS

In a nation of two languages

Neither of them it´s own

Where the king of a democracy

Has his palace

BRUSSELS

The seat of power for the European Union

Where Intra-European deals are made

By movers and shakers

That speak many different languages

BRUSSELS

Where a modern Metro

Connects many parts of the city

In minutes

Including

Where many Muslims live in a segregated section called Molenbeek

MOLENBEEK

Where the Paris terror attack was plotted

MOLENBEEK

Where people knew that one of the Paris terrorists was hiding

But no one told the police

MOLENBEEK

Which has some sections even the police are afraid to enter

Out of FEAR

FEAR in the seat of power of the European Union

FEAR of a culture and languages unknown

MOLENBEEK

Where a dual, divided culture exists

A culture of one religion

But two cultural generations

One of assimilated old timers

The other of expatriated youth

Who speak the same language

but fail to communicate with each other

and give rise to a fertile crop

Of easy terrorist recruits

BRUSSELS

Where a Paris terrorist was captured

But vowed further attacks

BRUSSELS

Which will shall henceforth be known

For a suicide terror attack

And bombs that blew up

An airport

And a metro stop

BRUSSELS

The seat of power for the European Union

Pockmarked by ISIS infiltration

With an infrastructure in panic

and FEAR of TERROR

Now TORN between

The IDEAL of a FREE, Civil Society

And the TERRIFYING REALITY

of the Implementation

Of a POLICE STATE

A Note in a Restaurant Bathroom Goes Viral on Social Media

By The Prophet of Life

Charlotte North Carolina, USA—

The owner of a pizza restaurant in an upscale enclave of Charlotte put a note up on a bathroom wall. The note explained why she opened a third washroom in her establishment.

The note read:

“We have a Unisex bathroom because sometimes, gender specific toilets put others in uncomfortable situations. Since we have a lot of friends coming to see us, we wanted to provide a place for our friends who are:

  • Single dads with daughters
  • Single moms with sons
  • Parents with disabled children
  • Those in the LGBT Community
  • Adults with aging parents who are mentally or physically disabled

Thank you for helping us to provide a safe, comfortable environment for everyone.

The note generally met with the approval from locals. Social media pickerd it up when someone posted it on Facebook.

The note opens up some valid arguments about the uses of a third bathroom and provides valid uses for a unisex bathroom beyond serving the transgender community alone.  Some public places offer a family restroom as a third restroom. It might be a good idea to offer both a unisex and a family bathroom and have all facilities disabled accessible so that everyone could be accommodated.

What Causes People to Become Ghosts?

By The Prophet of Life

Have you ever wondered where ghosts come from? Have you ever thought about how someone becomes a ghost?

I asked The Lord this question one morning when I was brushing my teeth. This is the response I got.

As I was brushing my teeth, I heard the siren of an ambulance passing on the main street near my home. Suddenly, I was a patient in the ambulance. I was tied to a gurney and writhing in pain. I knew I was about to die. To escape the pain I wished I had just simply been at home, then, suddenly I was at home, brushing my teeth.

What message would you have gleaned from this? The meaning I derived was that when people are in trauma and dying, they wish they were somewhere else. Then they imagine they are there. Then their spirit is transported there as a means to escape their pain, fear and the trauma of the event.

They go to where they have always felt safe. They stay there because they feel safe. They may still be suffering from a spiritual Post Traumatic Stress long after their death. This explains why even happy people can become ghosts because what makes a ghost is not how you felt about your life but how you feel at the time right before your death. That is how people become ghosts and that is why they haunt a particular place.

God relayed the message in feelings and pictures. Not a word was spoken. Yet I understood perfectly. What should you take away from this? Not only insight into how a person, even a happy person with a happy life can become a ghost but also insight into one way The Lord Communicates with us.

In True Faith,

The Prophet of Life

My Birthday Wish

By The Prophet of Life

It’s my birthday today. From my birth through 2011, my birthday was just another day on the calendar. It may have been important to me but to the rest of the world, it passed unnoticed. That all changed in 2012.

On December 14, 2012, a troubled young man killed his mother and then went to the school she worked at and killed a bunch of other people many of them children. Then he killed himself. The place this happened was New Town Connecticut at a school named Sandy Hook Elementary.

Now my birthday is forever marred by grim reminders on the anniversary of “Sandy Hook”. My joy is forever punctuated by sadness.  There is sadness for the tragedy that occurred.  There is sadness for the fact that not much has been done in America to prevent another Sandy Hook from occurring this year or any other year.

Despite the President of the United States using the Sandy Hook tragedy as well as other tragedies since to try and get stricter gun control laws passed, congress has refused to pass any. Legislation that would have banned possession of a number of assault rifles with large capacity magazines never got passed. Even a recent attempt to have similar legislation with a ban on issuing any firearm to people with ties to terrorists in the wake of the Jihad styled San Bernardino massacre failed to pass congress.

Laws banning possession of firearms with large capacity magazines did pass in Connecticut and New York State. These laws were upheld by in federal Court despite heavy opposition the Gun Lobby. New York State is also trying to get a law passed to prevent people with terrorist ties being issued fire arms.

The gun lobby says guns are not the problem, people are. They say if people were armed, the damage at Sandy Hook and in San Bernardino would have been minimized or prevented all together. There is truth to the concept that everyone having a gun can curtail the damage one person with a gun can do. This was generally proven in the American West in the 1800’s.

It all comes down to what kind of society you want to live in. Will it be a society where everyone has a gun? Will it be a society where the number of deaths in mass shootings is reduced while the number of anger based shootings over things like being cut off in line at a market or having your parking space taken right from under you increase?

I prefer to live in a civil society. One where people can own guns but where the police protect us and the rest of us don’t have to carry a gun around to “feel” safe. The best present I could get this birthday would be the passage of meaningful gun control laws so the nut jobs and terrorists can’t legally obtain guns. If there is  even a sliver of a chance that it would prevent another Sandy Hook or San Bernardino, then congress should pass it because not passing it is nothing less than permitting slaughter.

Is Donald Trump A Racist?

By The Prophet of Life

One of the hallmarks of racism is making general statements and / or judgments about or taking actions against an entire group of people based on the actions of a few members of that group. If you look at some of Donald Trumps statements in his bid for the Republican Presidential nomination based on this hallmark, then Donald Trump would appear to be a racist. His statements about Mexicans being criminals and rapists and about barring all people of the Islamic faith from entering the U.S.A. make him sound more like the Grand Dragon of the KKK than a serious candidate for the nation’s highest office. The problem is one never really knows whether Trump is just saying inflammatory things to grab headlines and keep himself relevant or if he is speaking from his heart.

Many Republicans like Donald Trump because he’s not afraid to speak his mind. They say he tells it like it is and doesn’t apologize for it. But, is Trump really telling it like it is? Or, is he just reflecting the frustrations of Xenophobic and racist white people who are afraid of sharing the American Dream with people who are different from them?

The media loves Trump because he’s always good for a sound bite. Sound bites dominate the media because they supposedly summarize an entire issue concisely. People have gotten used to sound bites and they have now become the new encyclopedia of knowledge on an issue despite the fact that they are often shallow, oversimplified and inflammatory in nature. In this sound bite world, people don’t like going into depth on an issue and prefer keeping the gory details to a minimum. In this sound bite world, Donald Trump is the perfect Presidential candidate.

Making headlines is Trump’s strong suit. Planning and follow through are his weaknesses. If you look at most of the things he says he will do if he gets in office they are shallow on details. He has been a great success in business but he is not running his presidential campaign like a business, unless you consider a circus a business that is applicable to governance. So far, his candidacy has done more to detract from the real substantive issues that should be discussed during this presidential campaign than it has to promote them.

The Office of The Presidency is a collaborative one. The Best Presidents have found a way to work with congress and get things done. It’s hard to imagine someone who owns a mega corporation and is used to telling people what to do, being effective in a position that requires working with people who don’t agree with you and having to constantly compromise. It’s hard to imagine someone who makes inflammatory and racist statements dealing effectively with the groups they have been insulting. It’s hard to imagine someone like that not making America the laughing stock of the entire world.

I guess the real proof of whether or not Donald Trump is effective at running for the Republican Candidate for President will come as the vote counts of State primaries are tallied. The proof of whether or not Donald Trump is effective at running for President will come during the Presidential Election of 2016 if he becomes the Presidential Candidate for the Republican Party. The answer to the question about whether or not Donald Trump is a racist can really only be answered by Trump himself. The answer to the question is he perceived as a racist is likely a resounding yes to a large number of people.

It has been said that running for the job of Presidency is different from actually being President. It has been said that people who win the job change. If Trump does win I hope to God that it is true for him because the Donald Trump I am seeing now is not Presidential material.

Vandalism of a Sikh Temple Proves Racism is A Symptom of Ignorance.

By The Prophet of Life

One of my famous quotes is “Racism is not a symptom of evil, nor is it a symptom of stupidity, it is merely a symptom of ignorance.” In Buena Park California right next door to the community where Disneyland is located, some racists performed an act that has illustrated this quote. A Sikh temple was vandalized. As worshiper’s truck, parked in the parking lot of the temple was also vandalized and tagged up with the words “F**k ISIS  F**k Islum.”

These poor, ignorant racists mistook a Sikh temple with an Islamic Temple. The Sikh religion is from India and has nothing whatsoever to do with the teachings of the Prophet Muhammad, founder of Islam. To my knowledge there is not one Sikh that is a member of ISIS. On top of that the poor, ignorant racists couldn’t even spell Islam correctly.

Sikhism is a religion from India. It focuses on the teachings of 10 gurus the first of which lived in the 15th century. Sikhs follow five articles of faith symbolized by not cutting their hair (Kesh) usually wrapped in a type of turban known as a Dastar. A wooden comb is usually worn under the Dastar. They wear Cotton undergarments (Kachera) also a symbol of chastity. They also wear of an iron bracelet (Kara), symbolic of eternity as a never ending circle and they wear an iron dagger (Kripan).

Sikhs believe in one God. They believe that spiritual life and secular life are intertwined. They believe in the equality of all humankind and that all faiths are equally valid and capable of enlightening their followers and that no one faith has a monopoly on the truth. They believe in striving for social justice and in selfless service. These good people had to suffer this injustice not out of hatred but out of ignorance.

To someone slaving under the ignorance of racism, a person in a turban is a Muslim because they don’t know anything about Muslims or Sikhs. They are too ignorant to know the he difference between them or even that there is a difference.

A racist isn’t evil, they may otherwise be good person and the entirety of a person’s life cannot be judged by one stupid act just as an entire community cannot be judged by the acts of a few idiots from that community.  A Racist isn’t stupid, they may be highly educated in some areas. A Racist however, is almost always ignorant. The racists who vandalized this temple are ignorant because they didn’t take the time or have the inclination to find out about Muslims or Sikhs. The Sikh Coalition in America has repeatedly decried increased attacks on Sikhs and Sikh temples in America since 9/11.

In true Faith,

The Prophet of Life
