Moral Revival, Love Now and I Don’t Believe You

Moral Revival, Love Now and I Don’t Believe You

Good Morning fellow travellers from Prince Edward Island, 

Crazy times we live in. But the good news is we are still living. 

Do you have time for a cuppa? 

Great. Thank you for letting me in today. 

Not sure, if you have read the recent articles but Sam Juric a digital reporter with CBC P.E.I., she has written a number of reports worth reading. 

How anti-oppression and cultural inclusion training can help people be better allies

and 

Want to be an ally to black, Indigenous and people of colour? Here's what you need to know. 

Thank you, Sam I am learning. 

Dare to reach out your hand into the darkness, to pull another hand into the light." ~ Norman B. Rice 

The world is on fire for change. Can I be the change? 

Our watching media allows us to social distance from the acts of injustice and racism.

I try and change the narrative and place a loved one or myself into the story and how do I feel? What am I feeling?

"I can't understand why people are frightened of new ideas. I'm frightened of the old ones." -John Cage

Canada is not lily white and without its own racism. The world is filled with a history of countries feeling superior enough to conquer other lands and subjugate other peoples.  Injustice and racism, usually starting from mankind’s need to acquire power and wealth and then perpetuated by the culture of those in power.

We can’t change yesterday but we can change today which affects tomorrow. I need to be part of the change.

Each of us can stand in front of a mirror, stare into the reflection of our eyes and ask, “do I hate?” And wait for the answer? Ask, do I judge? And wait for the answer. 

“Don’t try to force anything. Let life be a deep let-go. God opens millions of flowers every day without forcing their buds.” —Osho

Where there is judgement there is no love, where there is no love, there is no hope. 

“There are times when we stop, we sit still. We listen and breezes from a whole other world begin to whisper.” —James Carroll

It is our choices... that show what we truly are, far more than our abilities. - J. K. Rowling

Valerie Kaur, and other team members are establishing “revolutionary love” as a philosophy with a strong intellectual foundation and a set of practices accessible to people of all faiths and backgrounds. “Revolutionary Love” is defined as, “the kind of love that drives courageous action in our lives and in our politics.” The movement draws from different traditions and histories and attracts different faiths, humanists, and secularists to respond to escalating political and public hate, polarization, and social division

Here she is speaking at National Moral Revival Watch Night Service

Powerful.

First Nation woman in N.S. rewrites Billy Joel’s song to reflect Indigenous issues.

She decided to rewrite the Billy Joel song We Didn't Start The Fire, changing the lyrics to focus on issues affecting Indigenous people like the Sixties Scoop, MMIWG and other deaths of Indigenous people.

Tomorrow is Father’s Day. This is a pure example of what a Dad might aspire to. Pure love for their child. 

This is LOVE.

But this says it all.


Perhaps the feelings that we experience when we are in love represent a normal state. Being in love shows a person who he should be.” 

— Anton Chekhov


Have a wonder-full weekend. 


With love from Prince Edward Island


Bruce & Millie, a bit damp after me spraying her with the garden hose while she was chomping on new cucumber shoots! LOL


ps.

Two cows are standing next to each other in a field.

Daisy says to Dolly, "I was artificially inseminated this morning."

"I don't believe you," says Dolly.

"It's true, no bull!" exclaims Daisy

Hi again Bruce and a wonderful blog focusing on race, racial inequalities, indifference and love – a reality check for all of us. It was a very thoughtful and needed message as we move forward in this pandemic stage and we are glad to be here at our lovely cottage as approved seasonals sounds crazy as we have been here for 30 years and yet they call us every day to make sure we are on our property. On July 1 we will have completed our isolation and it will be nice to visit the Preserve Company and see all of the good products that we enjoy viewing. Take care and take care of Millie murdock

Happy father’s day (I join Millie), and re-opening of a place that contributed to enhancing my life. Thank you also for sharing Valerie Kaur. Her voice is critical.

Elaine Valdron - June 20, 2020

Hi Bruce, wishing you a successful reopening for Father’s Day! Thank you for sharing your encouragement each week!

Julie MacKenzie - June 20, 2020

Wow! Powerful stories…each & every one of them. I especially felt for Celina. I felt “goosebumps” as I watched her sing…& she brought me to tears….Great performance! ;) Awesome…Thanks for sharing…Much appreciated. Hopefully, there is going to be a change. I do feel there is an awakening, with all of the chaos that is happening around the world. Finally, these issues are being brought to the forefront…where everyone can see it… for what it truly is. There is no denying it. ;)
