To Humble Myself

clouds.jpg

Have you ever run into a bear in the woods? A mother bear with two cubs? And have you come nose to nose, that close?

I did.

She looked at me. I looked at her. The two cubs looked up at me with curiosity in their eyes. I didn’t yell. I didn’t talk. I didn’t gesture.

What did I do?

I humbled myself and quietly and as slowly as I could I backed up while still facing her until I got a good distance away. Once she saw I was removed from the path, the mother bear took off with the two cubs following close behind.

What do we do when we want others to know we are in the midst of trouble that we can’t handle by ourselves?

Raise a flag.

Call a friend.

Write a letter.

Send a text.

Yell for help…

Take a knee.

The religious every day have an opportunity to take a knee before their God and ask for help. It’s an outward sign of an inward conflict. I can’t deal with this problem by myself oh Lord. I ask for help. Please.

It goes all the way back to kingdoms and monarchs. You stood before the aristocracy and asked for mercy. You bowed. You took a knee. You humbled yourself in the hopes that this earthly mortal would summon the grace to grant your request.

1776 came along and that ended here. I believe it’s official. There is a constitution that enshrines basic rights to all citizens of this country, even members of the NFL.

We no longer have to ask a King for mercy in this democratic experiment. However, trouble doesn’t understand time. Or place. Or race. It pours itself out like a pack of lions after prey. The individual can’t stand against the odds. But together on one knee we are strong.

It’s hard to humble oneself. To admit you don’t know or don’t understand. That old saying, “To live in someone else’s shoes.” It is far easier to dismiss another’s feelings. To dismiss another’s life when it’s not like yours. But why is that?

I extol everyone to humble themselves and listen.

To look.

To hear the words.

To understand the problem.

Shut your eyes and hear the tears.

Feel the urgent need of now.

Peace

Wrong Question

donald trump-001

What is a wrong question?

A right question is, “Who didn’t flush the toilet?”

A wrong question is, “Did someone allow a baboon into my bathroom? And who did?”

Those are wrong questions.

A famous, fictional detective Mr. Holmes once said that if you find hoof prints around a body do not immediately question why did a Zebra stomp around the deceased. 

Logic is not for everyone. We can all be guilty of leaping to conclusions on any subject that is near and dear to us. Assumptions can be down right problematic to the resolution of any question.

Today when I hear the question, “Why didn’t Comey resign if Trump asked him to stop investigating him?” Trump tells Comey the Russian Story is fake news.

I hear a wrong question.

The following is all in the public record so far. Trump was and is in an active investigation for treason and money laundering by the FBI. Comey was the head of the FBI, the number one cop in America. When Trump asks Comey to stop investigating him and Comey says no, Trump’s request is yet another onion layer added to his growing file. 

What is the file? The file is the investigation into the possible charges against him, his associates and family, that the FBI is actively collecting.

Logic states Comey would not resign. He was heading the investigation into Trump, his associates and family for treason. When Trump fires him and Trump says its because he believes the Russia Story is fake, that’s a legal criminal act, obstruction of justice. In light of that, the FBI has stated they are investigating Trump and associates for collusion with the Russians. These associates helped the Russians with a disinformation campaign. It was organized through Russian Intelligence and involved plants of fake news on Facebook and Twitter.  This includes the DNC hack and tactical releases of insider political conversations at the DNC. Which according to the FBI, the Russians are still actively conducting.

The right question to ask is, “How soon will deniers see the asteroid heading towards Trump Tower?”

Peace
