You Already Are. You Always Were.

Our youth dont have to grow up and become somebody or something. They’re so much more than some body or some thing. They’re wakanyeja (sacred beings) with a sacred vision, mission, purpose, and message.

We are all born as wakanyeja (sacred beings), and we remember and grow deeper within this truth by reminding others of this truth. What we teach is what we are choosing to learn.

You don’t have to become anything. You need but simply remember, in this holy instant, that you already are and always were a sacred blessing, miracle and gift.

Waking Up or Getting Up?

Don’t just get up, wake up to the truth that you are a sacred blessing, miracle and gift. Vision begins within. The true vision of love extends outward in healing. The distorted vision of fear projects outward in destruction. 

Until someone can see you as a sacred blessing, miracle and gift, they cannot see you.
Until you can see yourself as a sacred blessing, miracle and gift, you cannot see you.

The Voice of What You Are

The ego only knows how to attack or defend. It wants allies to join in attacks and defense, but it doesn’t want brothers and sisters. It doesnt want brothers and sisters to unite in Truth – in Love.

There’s another Voice within us – the Voice of God that’s always available because It’s what we are. Its Holiness always remebers and reminds ourselves and others that we are all sacred blessings, miracles, and gifts.

We have a choice in which voice we listen to. And the voice we’ve chosen to listen to is evident in what we share – what we teach. And what we teach is what we are choosing to learn.

Take the sacred, seventeen inch walk from your head back to your heart to teach and learn with God in the great, holy love that you are, always have been, and will always be.

Looking Back Upon Forevers

Looking back
upon forever
He really thought
It would be forever
every time

Looking forward
upon forever
He still thinks
It will be forever
every time

Being here, right now
He’s enjoying
the part of forever
he’s in
In this time
this moment
this breath 

We’re all time travelers
caught in the forevers
when it hurt the most
and felt the best
Carrying our forevers
Together 

Resisting Healing is Resisting Our Truth

Our children don’t have to grow up and become something or somebody. They’re much more than some “thing” or some “body,” they’re sacred blessings, miracles and gifts. We all are. 

The resistance I receive from some when I facilitate gang intervention training, or any other youth development training, is from those who want to hold on to the idea that there is such a thing as a “bad” kid, but there is no such thing. I’ve met hurting, deeply wounded and traumatized children, but never a “bad” one. 

Others who give resistance in my training and workshops are those who want to hold on to the view that labeling and institutionalizing our youth is a solution, but it’s not. The school to prison pipeline is child trafficking. 

Those who give me the most resistance in the training and workshops I facilitate, are those who think that transformation isn’t possible. People who truly don’t want a paradigm shift, because that would mean they’d have to make internal changes, mindset adjustments, and begin working within the causes of the challenges our youth are facing – pain, loss, trauma. And since many are unwilling to go to this space within themselves, they’re surely not willing to go there with others. 

The youth are the solution, not the problem. The challenges our society faces is not the fault of our young people in society. The challenges that the youth face in our society is a reflection of our society within the youth. 

Healing, true transformation is possible. I’ve witnessed too many miracles to be a skeptic. But it comes with and in love, compassionate correction and guidance, not punishment, prescriptions and labels. 

I was once asked, “Don’t you get tired of working with gang members and hard-to-serve populations?”

Through my laughter, I responded, “If that’s how I saw them I probably would.”
