7 Days 7+ Quotes – Integrity – A Value We Impose On Ourselves – It Says Everything About Who We Are – 9 Tips to Help You Strengthen Your Integrity

“Lying lips [are] abomination to the LORD: but they that deal truly [are] his delight.” – Proverbs 12:22

Integrity is one of my most valuable virtues.

Now that I am well on my spiritual journey, maintaining Integrity has become of greater importance in every choice that I make or action I take.

The reason I give Integrity such importance has to do partly with my age and experience.  And, having had many people in my life who were not “of their word”.  …Friends, Family, and Colleagues.

The choices and challenges that I face today are generally not new ones. As they say, ‘This is not my first rodeo’. It seems that most of the choices I face today are ones in which I am already well-experienced. On most challenges to my Integrity, I have made incorrect choices in the past, and am well aware of the consequences of not being true. So, I ensure that I am, no matter what the truth may bear.

It may not be easy for others to make the correct choices, and to be regarded as men or women of their my word.  …Not I!

Aging has also caused me to focus more on a legacy. My legacy is important to me. The reason it is of such importance is that when God comes for me, I want to be able to leave a message, purpose, and inspiration behind for others.

I am very serious about leaving a legacy. My tombstone is already engraved with: ‘His mission on Earth is complete’.

I simply do not see my life today as exclusively dedicated to myself. I do for others in daily deeds, but also for my best virtues to be reflected upon and be useful to others.

My poetry, stories, social media content, and blog posts reflect the legacy that I am creating. I practice what I preach, believe the things I write, eat the foods I recommend, and follow the health regimens that I write about.

“Love Is Starving For Itself” – It Needs Love Today! – Send URs Right Away – Hate’s Going ‘Round – So Don’t Delay

I believe that God inspired my thought to post about Love today.  I am not being as self-important as this may sound. 

Most people do believe that God created the universe.  We may differ on exactly who God is, or if the name is really God, but most of us agree that man did not create the universe.  That is outstanding that most of us can surrender our egos to a higher power.

Most believe that some entity, character, energy, spirit, or vibration created the universe, and therefore created us.

So, if “God” created us, and if we believe in “God”, then we must believe that “God” guides us, inspires us, sends us messages and visions.

God sent me a vision to create this post.  It occurred, as it usually does when I was jogging the other day.  I listened to Stevie Wonder’s album Songs In The Key Of Life.  I was mesmerized by the song Love’s In Need of Love Today.  I was in awe over all of the songs on this album, but especially this song.


 “Kindness in words creates confidence. Kindness in thinking creates profoundness. Kindness in giving creates love.” – Lao Tzu


The lyrics and artistry deliver a compelling-needed message, in a most bone-chilling way.  I am sure that God gives Stevie Wonder such visions too.  Stevie said himself, on one of the video performances below the “Love is starving for itself”.  I liked it so much, I used in the title.

Love is starving for attention.  Fear, panic, and uncertainty is causing hate to go ‘round, breaking many hearts.  And, we must stop this, before it’s gone too far!    Continue reading ““Love Is Starving For Itself” – It Needs Love Today! – Send URs Right Away – Hate’s Going ‘Round – So Don’t Delay”

The Spirit of Kwanzaa, Diwali, Hanukkah & Christmas Should Be Lived Everyday – Not Just Celebrated Once A Year – Come On Now!

I don’t celebrate Christmas in a very commercial way.  Nonetheless, this past Christmas was one of my most special Christmases.  I gave no material gifts.  I could not afford to.  But instead, I received and shared the love of my heart with others close to me, quite randomly.

This past Christmas made me feel proud also!

It made me feel that my mother, in heaven, was smiling down on me.  One of my dearest friends, who I supported in the past, and who supported me, surprised me with money when I really needed it to catch up on bills. 

He reminded me of times that I was there for him when he needed me.  I was but without expectation.  That is why it felt so special.  This friend’s family is my family.  They are lovingly spiritual.  I am there for them if they ever need me.  They poured their spirit, all the way from Costa Rica, into my Christmas, complete with pictures that exuded God’s spirit.

Then a highly intelligent and honorable friend from India sent me a gift unexpectedly.  I haven’t seen him in about 20 years when we worked together on IT projects. 

He reminded me of back then, when I supported him, believed in him.  Now he is a success as a businessman, family man, in the spirit Knowledge, Happiness, and Krishna.    He told me that he considers me as his brother.  I feel the same way and am available to help him with his visions in whatever way I can. 

My neighbor and I collaborate on video projects.  We have conversations about videos, music, creativity, and life in general.  He is a mentor to ‘his homies’, who are younger than him.  I am like a mentor to him, because I am as many years older than he is, as he is older than his ‘homies’. 

He and I sprang gifts on each other this Christmas.  Not so much wrapped with bows.  Rather impromptu gifts of appreciation, backed with conversations filled with true authenticity and gratitude. 

The highlight of my Christmas was being spontaneously invited to dinner by someone in the media that I admire.  I help him as much as I can because I feel really good vibes from him.  …And it helps that he is really smart, with a humble peaceful spirit.

He invited to dinner with his family, mask-free.  I am sure, because of his spiritual upbringing, that he realized that he shared the loving spirit of his family with me, in addition to the wonderful meal that each member of the family prepared.  I felt love in his home, beyond what I have felt in support from him on media projects.

I offered my skills, talents, and time to him and his family sincerely.  And I mean it.  If there is a way that I can assist in the future, I’m on it!

Not one of these things was planned, and I feel like in them I’ve experienced a more loving and touching Christmas this go-round than I have when it had been meticulously orchestrated.  This is what Christmas, Diwali (Deepavali), Hanukkah, and Kwanzaa should be all about.      Continue reading “The Spirit of Kwanzaa, Diwali, Hanukkah & Christmas Should Be Lived Everyday – Not Just Celebrated Once A Year – Come On Now!”

SHARE – I Need That SA BEAT! – AFROBEATS – I Need To Clear My Mind & Move My Feet – I Need That BEAT!

Today I was feeling like I needed that Afrobeat

Afrobeats make me move my feet, where I can’t sit in my seat.

There is so much on my mind right now.  There so much on everybody’s mind. 

You can only imagine how much we must be filled with thoughts, having to research all the things we hear, constantly tuning into media and social media. 

The Truth can be shocking and a bit discouraging at times. 

This may be one reason why so many don’t dig deep to find facts.  Relying solely on media news and social media is the easy way out. 

The events and uncertainties in life are overwhelming right now. 

Sometimes I need Afrobeats TO ESCAPE IT ALL! 

Today is one of those times.  Kevy Continue reading “SHARE – I Need That SA BEAT! – AFROBEATS – I Need To Clear My Mind & Move My Feet – I Need That BEAT!”

I Enjoy Being In Solitude More Than Being With People – Maybe I Love Myself Too Much? – It May Be Just For A Season – But I Prefer To Be By Myself Right Now

If ever there was a time to enjoy Solitude, now is that time.  Let me give you a few reasons:  Truth Decay, Racism, Hate, The Lobster, Riots, COVID19, Uncertainty, etc.  This post reveals that I am spending most of my free time alone.  …And I am joyous!  God is there with me showing me how beautiful I am, and where I may have gone wrong.  …Or did I?  Was it all for my greater good?  Kevy

I was speaking to a friend the other day and I was telling her that I am not sure if I could ever be in a close relationship, live with another person or even engage with my family.  She agreed with me for much the same reasons.

I know it sounds a little strange but it’s not at all.  I’m in spirit now more than into people.  I enjoy Being alone.  I have so many rituals that I follow which keeps me at a higher vibration.  …Rituals such as grounding on a regular basis, meditation, and prayer daily.  I have a lot of health rituals such as juicing, also do mineral baths, with salt and oils.  I have a creative side where I’m writing, making videos, as well as putting content out on the blog.

It’s almost impossible for me to do these things and not leave another person or make them feel ignored.  I’ve gone through this before.  Yet I am not lonely.  I enjoy this time.  There are a lot of different reasons for this.  Continue reading “I Enjoy Being In Solitude More Than Being With People – Maybe I Love Myself Too Much? – It May Be Just For A Season – But I Prefer To Be By Myself Right Now”

How I Feel About Jared Kushner’s Statement On “The Black People” Not Desiring Success – Ya Know The Ole, You Can Lead A Horse To Water, But U Can’t Make That MOFO Drink

November 4, 2020, Post Election Night Comments

Last night’s US election results clearly show that the United States of America is Racist, embraces corruption, and has limited regard for humanity or our God-given paradise.  – Kevy

We now have the perfect ingredients laid out on the table for the preparation of a savory pot of Revolution Gumbo.

This post focuses on Jared Kushner’s comments about Black people, but it does much more.  

It points out where I believe that Blacks can up their game, Big Time!  Perhaps the realization of the election will catapult their understanding, solidarity, and swift action.  

…Perhaps Liberal White Boomers too, who desire harmonious Race Relations, but not Racial Equality or Racial Equity if it adversely affects their privilege and 401Ks.  

It also neatly ties together opinions that I have shared in prior posts that seem to be coming into fruition.  Kevy

November 3, 2020

I have the windows open here in Colorado and it’s in the 70s.  It’s an incredibly beautiful day.  We get a lot of sunshine here. 

I wanted to send this post because I know a lot of people have anxiety about the election even if they are not in America because it’s going to affect them in some way.  I don’t really have a lot of anxiety, but I do know that our future is going to be more different than our past.  …Much different.  I don’t know how but I do feel in my spirit that there is a calling.  And it’s not a calling for a prophet or messiah.  It’s a calling of several of them.  …To prepare, adapt, as well as continue to move this shift in the right direction.

Poetrimony – Seasons Are In The Air – I’m Melancholy – Marley, MJ, Ms. Bey, Lil Wayne & Others – Know What I’m Feeling In This Moment

Photo – Jeremy Bishop – Unsplash

Today I woke up feeling melancholy again, with Seasons on my mind. 

Seasons are always on my mind.  The theme of this blog is Seasons As Our Teacher.  I gained discernment about Seasons from nature.  God’s breath rests comfortably within nature.  Therefore, I spend time in nature to gain God’s understanding.  In a sense, when nature speaks to me, God is speaking to me.

This post is another mashup.  I love doing mashups because they reveal how eclectic and complex, I’ve become.  But my complexity is not of my own doing.  I am complex because of complex times and experiences.  We’re in a complex Season.

We are in a revolution whether you recognize it or deny it.  We are in the midst of the New World Order and must adapt to the Season, just as nature does.

This post features poems related to Seasons and the melancholy spirit that I feel in this moment.  To accentuate my spirit, I’ve selected original poems, and songs from popular artists, who feel or have felt this same sentiment.

My song choices are also eclectic, spanning across eras, years, and perspectives.  These songs were artistically composed when these artists likely felt as I do today.  Kevy Continue reading “Poetrimony – Seasons Are In The Air – I’m Melancholy – Marley, MJ, Ms. Bey, Lil Wayne & Others – Know What I’m Feeling In This Moment”

You May Not Believe in God – But Know That Satan’s At Work, Bigtime! – Secrets on How He Works – The Devil’s Bag of Tricks

I am reposting this article because of an epiphany that I just had in a discussion with a dear minister friend.  In this conversation, I realized that Satan operates from the same bag of tricks.  The tools used against me, as a Black man, by institutional racism, by friends, family, and The Black Community, are universal tools.  

As the cliché says, Same Devil, Different day.  Kevy


When I refer to Satan, I don’t think of a red naked man with horns and a pitchfork. That is a fairy tale that I haven’t believed since maybe the age of 5 years. I included such images in this post, only because everyone can relate to these images of evil, as they relate to “images” of Jesus.  I don’t believe in the White image of Jesus either, though pictures of White Jesus and Virgin Mary hang on my wall, left by my dear mother. 

I don’t believe that Satan unto himself is of flesh. Satan is simply a spirit, an evil one that wants to separate us from God, and therefore prevent our access to the Kingdom, and to blessings while here on Earth.  He wants to distract us from our beauty and power.  He infiltrates the flesh.  He overcomes the minds of the weak and convinces them that they act on their own accord.  He is cunning and baffling like The Lobster is with coronavirus.  Or, like America treats Blacks.  Or, deception in our families, amongst friends, and humanity.  Satan’s spirit is enmeshed in our destruction of the planet, the once-was paradise that God granted us.  This is where Satan manifested resides today.  

Satan doesn’t want us to know how powerful we are through the Holy Spirit. That is why he’s anxious to block our access to God. He (his spirit) wants us to think that he is more than a mere spirit, a thought, an imagining. He wants us to believe that he has power over us.

But he doesn’t, provided we don’t surrender to him. Continue reading “You May Not Believe in God – But Know That Satan’s At Work, Bigtime! – Secrets on How He Works – The Devil’s Bag of Tricks”

Black People – U Sustain Racism 2! – Change Requires More Than Just Talk, Posting, Scriptures & Sitting On UR Azz – Do Sumthin Now! – Voting For Trump Would Be Better Than Your Lazy Actions!

Black People, prepare yourself for making significant changes in your approach to racism, inactive Black people especially. The world is fed-up! We’ve had enough!  ..not just of White Privilege, but of Black Privilege and deceptive sellouts, who profit from pretending to care about how inequality and inequity affects their own people.

Approach Black racism as though it impacts you, or a family member.  It does.  We are all brothers and sisters, under the God in which we supposedly believe.

Blacks are screwed up on racism big time!  Blacks (we) clearly contribute to their own demise, by not using our most powerful weapons, money, and action.

Black leaders often give the appearance of action, but just talk about the problem.  There is money to be made in just talk.  It keeps the Racism Industry vibrant and self-sustaining.  Taking tangible action could eliminate it., though

Others superficially wait on the Lord to do the work, though He gave us minds, free will, and discernment.  Why put on The Lord what you can do yourselves?

Still, others pretend to do the work but are simply sustaining their existence to keep grant and foundation funds coming into their coffers.

I know what I’m talking about.  I’ve experienced each of these types, and I’ve had enough!  I will write vigorously about it, but I will not write alone.  I help people…many people, giving them tangibles from which they can benefit.  …measurable and tangible benefits, not just talk and showcasing.

Because of the silence White Liberals and Self-Serving and lazy Blacks, I have decided to vote for Trump, or not vote at all.  I will also explain my reasoning in a separate post.  This is a repost to reach more people with this message.  Kevy


Today (actually yesterday) was one of my usual days.

I went to Washington Park. I jogged. I was very proud of myself because I ran 7.51 miles, about two and a half months after being exposed to the Coronavirus. I feel like I’m living my truth. I’m actually living and experiencing what I claim about Coronavirus, Health, and Devirusizing. I had no problems. I actually ran an 8:24 mile, which for a 60-year-old man.

But what was different on this day is, obviously my having thoughts on the coronavirus, and recent police killings and police brutality against blacks.  I’m a black male, so I’m sort of like enemy number one to the world.

20200529_124418I noticed a bunch of policemen in the park and I wondered, what are they doing? They were handing out something. I didn’t know what they were handing out. Later found out they offering Denver Police Department stickers.  I guess they were doing like a little PR or something in light of their reputation.

On this run, two things became clearer to me.  I had a few epiphanies on this day and I want to share them with you, especially after attending the George Floyd protest march and rally in Denver, Colorado, USA.

If U Cared For UR Mother & Now She Is Gone – U Will Like This Post – If U Neglected Her or Conspired To – Go To Hell!

I finished this poem this morning while sitting on the grass in a park, reflecting.  I was Grounding in multiple ways.

I translated the poem in various languages based on website views, by country.   I used Google Translate to convert it from English.  Please let me know if the translation is correct, in any language.

I love my mother very much, in any language.

I wrote the poem in this post on my smartphone so there isn’t much glitz and glamor to offer. 


I don’t expect those who were not willing to be caregivers for their mother to understand why 6 years after my mother transcended, I continue to worship her like she is still here. 

I certainly don’t expect my fake-faithful siblings, family members, and New Orleans’ Metro non-profit deviously-operated senior agencies to appreciate this post.  This is not for them.  But, there is a slight possibility that one or two may be reflective on their deeds and surrender their sins against their mother (or someone else’s) to God.

They have the freedom to not receive these messages by asking me to not send them my post, or they can just ignore them.  Lately, they’ve said nothing and believe in their imaginary innocence. …for six years now.


This post is for those who really love their mothers, who cared for them in their final days, as I did with honor.  This is for those same beautiful children of God who believe that their mother is still with them, protecting and watching over them.


As for the other losers, who neglected their mother when she was near death, for greed, power, or resentment, or those who were complicit in the sabotage of a frail mother’s well-being, may you enjoy your day in hell.  You will meet a lot of your relatives and friends there.   

I am sure that my siblings, family members, and New Orleans agencies that participated in the Terror Against The Caregiver (Me or You) are destined for hell, if not already there on Earth.


I cannot see or talk directly to my mother today.  For that, I have no regrets.  She’s left me with a lot of fond memories.  I can feel her spirit in me, and around me. 

I believe that only those who have shown God’s love to their mothers, when they were frail and dying, get to gain such access to their spirit when they become Guardian Angels, as my mother did.  She was born on October 2, 1918, the day of the Feast of the Guardian Angels day


Thanks, Lil Eunice for granting me access to your spirit.  Thanks for your guidance and protection.  Thanks, God for allowing me to access you, through my dear Lil Eunice!


As for the ungodly ones, in my family circle, and outside of it, I hope it pains you, not having such access, but instead, having access to the pain you caused her before she ascended to heaven. 

I am not being cruel.  Everyone must pay someday for their deeds, I included. 

They too, however, do have access to God, but only in Truth & Surrender to his Truth.  May they open that door, I pray.

…May they change their wicked ways.  Ironically many of my siblings are mothers.  With regard to those for whom this post resonates, I am sure that your caregiving antagonizers are mothers too.  In fact, nearly all of my only siblings that remain on Earth today are mothers.  They all had a mother, a beautifully spiritual and strong one.   Their day of reckoning shall come. 

There is nothing that I must do to facilitate their future or present crisis moment.  God has got that covered.  I only need to remain Truthful and Faithful.  That I am.   Continue reading “If U Cared For UR Mother & Now She Is Gone – U Will Like This Post – If U Neglected Her or Conspired To – Go To Hell!”

The Law of Giving & Receiving – Notice No “S” – It’s One Law With 2 Parts – We Have 1 Hand For Giving & 1 Hand For Receiving – We Must Use Both Hands To Get The Law Right! – Let Me Explain

This post is on the Spiritual Law of Giving & Receiving, taken from Deepak Chopra’s book, The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success, that I read over 20 years ago.

The principles presented in this short book are as dear to me as are the bible’s principles. I have distributed copies of this book to others around the world. I live by all seven of its principles.

If you read this book (less than 90 pages), you can get a good idea as to how my spiritual mind works. You will see its principles reflected in my posts and opinions. It is reflected in how I live. It especially influences how I give. It includes a chapter devoted to Giving & Receiving on which I will explain in this post.

The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success

Deepak’s book, The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success was very instrumental in my spiritual transformation. It explains spiritual principles in multi-metaphysical dimensions. It presents spirituality scientifically, astrologically, psychologically, emotionally, and practically, while I perceive the bible as not being as multidimensional. The book does not contradict the bible, though, it expands it. Every principle can be associated with biblical principles. I suggest that you read it as I have many times.

I have wanted to write this post for months now, but could not muster up the creative energy to do so. I may appear to have it all together, based on the content that I create, but I have flaws and bad days just like everyone else. I practice and passionately believe wholeheartedly in the perspectives I share, but that does not mean that I do not experience seasons in my life like everyone else.

White Liberal Boomers – ‘White Silence’ Is Unacceptable In Revolution 2020 –Take Firm Action On Racism – ‘Feelings R Not Enough! – 5 Tips For White Liberal Boomers Based On Experience With Annie

White people, all people, prepare yourself for making significant changes in your approach to racism, Liberal White people especially. The world is fed-up! We’ve had enough!

White Silence won’t work in the state we’re in today. We’re in the midst of a revolution.  Blacks recognize that you are benefiting from an unpaid humanitarian debt every day that you enjoy your privilege.

Instead of approaching Racism, Inequality, and Inequity as though it’s awful, and that you must help these poor Blacks, approach your dilemma as though you have a spiritual debt that must be paid.  You do. 

Approach Black racism as though it impacts you, or a family member.  It does.  We are all brothers and sisters, under the God in which we supposedly believe. 

Many Black are screwed up on racism too.  I will post separately on this side of the equation.

But Blacks clearly contribute to their own demise, by not using their most powerful weapons, money, and action.   Black leaders often give the appearance of action, but just talk about the problem.  This is money to be made in just talk.  It keeps the Racism Industry vibrant and self-sustaining.  Taking tangible ction could eliminate it.

Others superficially wait on the Lord to do the work, though He gave us minds, free will, and discernment.  Why put on The Lord what you can do yourselves?  Still, others pretend to do the work but are simply sustaining their existence to keep grant and foundation funds coming into their coffers.

I know what I’m talking about.  I’ve experienced each of these types, and I’ve had enough!  I will write vigorously about it, but I will not write alone.  I help people…many people, giving them tangibles from which they can benefit.  …measurable and tangible benefits, not just talk and showcasing.

These two groups are more damaging to Black Inequity & Inequality than outright racists.  The latter are resolute and clear.  They take action.  The former is deceptive and keeps Blacks, in the aggregate bound and tied.

For this reason, I have decided to vote for Trump, or not vote at all.  I will also explain my reasoning in a separate post.  Kevy


It’s time for you to “get off the pot or shit”, a New Orleans saying. “Shit or get off the pot” – Make a decision. This phrase is most commonly used towards a person or group whom the speaker feels are behaving indecisively. Often occurs in tense situations where the speaker believes a quick decision is necessary or urgent. Sometimes delivered as life advice.” – Urban Dictionary – Deome June 24, 2015

White Liberal Boomers are at a fork in the road and must choose a side. They can no longer ride the middle line as they have for years.

A tsunami of change is already here, and they will be most negatively impacted and left behind if they continue to surf the wave of indifferent, with little action. They can no longer remain neutral, indifferent, or impassionate on racism. They will be held accountable in the aftermath.

If they do not change their ways, they may lose friends, as I lost my friend Annie, their peace of mind, morality will trouble them, and they will be criticized for their inaction, “when shit hits the fan”. Well…Shit has hit the fan!

I just lost my White Liberal Boomer friend Annie last week. Change is happening within our circles and in those around us.

“When your conscience begins to bother you about your past actions, that’s your Soul wanting you to wake up.”Andrea de Michaelis – Creating my own reality, one thought at a time

Another way of this statement is, White Liberals walk your talk. Stand up for the principals to which you have professed for years!

There are many reasons why I feel this way, but let’s first look at population numbers to gain a greater perspective.

I direct the statements above specifically to White Liberal Boomers (Born between 1944 and 1964 (approximately, don’t try to escape), currently between 56-76 years old – 76 million in the U.S. (or so)Kasasa) because Generations X, Y, and Z are already on board and navigating this Revolution 2020. The Millennials are the ones igniting it. I admire their courage and determination. They won’t be stopped because it’s their future that they are fighting for in addition to fighting against racism.

I was told yesterday at a rally, by a young gay HIV-infected protester, “I know that it’s risky to protest with corona and all, but standing up against police violence and discrimination against Blacks is too important to ignore.”

At rallies this week, as I filmed tens of thousands of protestors, I had an epiphany that these young ‘rebel rouser’ are our future leaders. They dominate the population and demand change. …Look…

The Legacy of Slavery in the US – Coloradopoet – Guest Blogger – I’m Excited To Hear Coloradopoet Share Her Perspective

I am exhausted physically and emotionally but continue to participate in rallies with the Black Lives Matter Revolution. 

I’ve cried often, both in joy and sorrow, lost my voice a few times, and have felt intense anger.  I’ve spent 9 days and nights at protests, rallies, and marches.  I have, as have nearly each of 10’s of thousands of participants in Denver, Colorado, USA, protested nonviolently.

I lost a white friend (Annie) who was infuriated by my expression of emotions about “white people” after I  repeatedly watched the George Floyd crucifixion to prepare the video Black People – All People Just Want To Live.  Her last words to me on the phone were ‘fuck you”, then she hung up. 

It’s like I went to an emotional amusement park, where only some of the rides are amusing.  But, I will return to blogging and vlogging this week as I regroup.

I am excited to share this post by Coloradopoet.  In the post-Black People – All People Just Want To Live, I invited others to share their perspectives on all things racial.  Coloradopoet answered.  I am hopeful that Coloradopoet will share more posts in the future.  I am hopeful that one day that you will be encouraged to share fresh or already published content, especially on racism.  Can we talk?

We must not be like my friend Annie.  I will write about her in a coming post.

White people must not get so defensive and must be willing to talk about the realities of racism.  They must try to imagine how Blacks must feel in this revolution, then try to imagine again, on top of that.

Most of today’s Whites were born into the privilege of this hateful inhumanity, innocently.  Most of today’s Blacks were born into the barbarism and disparity of this hateful inhumanity, innocently.  But together we must change it, or it will destroy civilization as we ‘used to know it’.  It is not the same anymore.

I offer the warmest gratitude to Coloradopoet for choosing discussion and engagement, as opposed to denial and anger.  Kevy Continue reading “The Legacy of Slavery in the US – Coloradopoet – Guest Blogger – I’m Excited To Hear Coloradopoet Share Her Perspective”

In The Midst Of Fear & Worry This Just May Be UR Season – We Should Endure More Like Trees

“Spring passes and one remembers one’s innocence.
Summer passes and one remembers one’s exuberance.
Autumn passes and one remembers one’s reverence.
Winter passes and one remembers one’s perseverance.” Yoko Ono

“While the earth remaineth, seedtime and harvest, and cold and heat, and summer and winter, and day and night shall not cease” – Genesis 8:22

“If we had no winter, the spring would not be so pleasant: if we did not sometimes taste of adversity, prosperity would not be so welcome.”Anne Bradstreet, The Works of Anne Bradstreet
“1 To everything there is a season and a time to every purpose under the heaven:
2 A time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted”Ecc 3:1-2

Coming to an understanding of how seasons work in my life has been one of my most profound discoveries.

“In This Corner, Religion” – “In This Corner, Spirituality” – Religion VS Spirituality – Yeah, I’m Gonna Go There!

The world is a kind of spiritual kindergarten where millions of bewildered infants are trying to spell “God” with the wrong blocks. – Edwin Arlington Robinson

I can no longer say that I am a religious man.  I am a spiritual man, with religion in my spirit, but I am not a regular participant in organized religion. 

I haven’t fancied being a part of any large organized groups in general, since high school.  Therefore, part of my reason for not being religious is that I do not like to be a part of large groups.

Being a religious man is like saying that you are an outdoorsman, a romantic man, or even a party man.  The driving words before ‘man’ implies regularly participating in that specific sort of activity, outdoor sports, romance, and partying, respectively.

I am not a religious man because I do not regularly go to church.

I stopped going on a regular basis in 2014 after my mother passed.  When caring for her, I attended Catholic mass, our family religion, out of respect for her.  I have years prior moved away from the Catholic church.  I came back to respect your religion.  Though my mother was religious, she was also spiritual.  One does not have to negate the other though it often does.

SHARE – Kevy’s Back – He’s Been Hanging With Corona Though – Now He’s Separating Wheat From Tares

As you get older, you find that often the wheat, disentangling itself from the chaff, comes out to meet you. – Gwendolyn Brooks


Friends, I am finally returning to Life Seasons As A Teacher, more passionate than ever! I have been on Life’s Road and have become more discerned, strengthened, and corrected. I have been tried many times, but never convicted. I have many stories to share in future posts.

But I must first present content on the matter at hand, Corona.

I am returning with an enemy whom I befriended for a bit. Her name is Corona. She’s left me now, stronger than I was before she came into my life. Corona had to move on from me. She is no longer amused with me and knew that there is a world of more suitable and submissive mates for her. I am a strong man. Maybe that’s why she left me.

I no longer wish Corona in my life, but I appreciate all that she revealed to me about me, and about ‘people’. …about our world. Her most powerful skill is in her ability to separate the wheat from the tares.

I will be sharing with you, what Corona revealed to me in the next several posts.

‘That Guy’ Is Forever Gone

Forever Gone (Excerpt)

By Kevy Michaels

I can’t describe my feelings for you
I know that those feelings are strong

I can’t describe where I am right now
But where I was…
I will never return

…Feeling my soul vividly right now
…Been cleansed and transformed

The places where I tried to fit in
…Just don’t appeal to me anymore

I will forever have fond memories of you
Even of the man that I once was

But ‘that guy’ who escorted you
On a part of your journey

Is now
The man who’s

… Forever Gone

You May Not Believe In God – But Know That Satan Is Among Us – Secrets On How He Works – THE DEVIL’S SECRETS RECAP!

When I refer to Satan, I don’t think of a red naked man with horns and a pitchfork. That is a fairy tale that I haven’t believed since maybe the age of 5 years.

I don’t believe that Satan unto himself is of flesh. Satan is simply a spirit, an evil one that wants to separate us from God, and therefore prevent our access to the Kingdom, and to blessings while here on Earth.  He infiltrates the flesh.  He overcomes the minds of the weak and convinces them that they act on their own accord.

Satan doesn’t want us to know how powerful we are through the Holy Spirit. That’s why he’s anxious to block our access to God. He (his spirit) wants us to think that he is more than a mere spirit, a thought, an imagining. He wants us to believe that he has power over us.

But, he doesn’t, provided we don’t surrender to him.

Though Satan is powerless, he is still highly successful in inflicting evil. That is because he must transform into human form so that he becomes more relatable and likable to us. Satan is so successful because he cunningly gets a hold of those closest to us. He also cleverly uses various lures to entice us into his web.

Because we are unknowingly hypnotized like a zombie, he easily appears in the people around us, and manipulates us, if we fall for it. Under his baffling spell, we are decoyed, and oblivious, because we are only alerted by the image of Satan with a pitchfork, that’s been burned in our minds.

But, that clever dude, in disguise, congenially sits at our dinner table, in our homes, at our jobs, in our communities in the form of friends, family, bosses, clergy, politicians, neighbors, and even loved ones. His spirit appears in a form that is anything but the deceptive ‘red devil’ we’ve come to look out for.

When I hear people say that Satan is real, or that Satan is walking the face of the Earth, I interpret that to mean that he has infiltrated the minds of people surrounding and interacting with us.  I don’t know if it’s just me, but he seems to have shown tremendous success in recent years.

So when I state with conviction that ‘Satan walks the face of the Earth’, now you know what I mean.

When I refer to Satan, I don’t think of a red naked man with horns and a pitchfork. I think of the people around me, and observe them and their deeds very carefully.
