I can’t help but share a few more thoughts based on my series I have written. In some ways, the events of the day around this planet seem to reveal how crucial it is to choose Heart as our primary operating system.
The choice is no different; however, the stark contrast between our two primary energies of Heart and Ego has drawn to a head. It’s probably not the end-of-the-world type disaster, but the current prevailing winds of humanity show that a huge majority of folks just aren’t happy. Racism, oppression, prejudice, and associated attitudes and actions manifest the underlying unhappiness. Choose love, for love eliminates the often disguised Ego fear that drives so much current discontent. Choose happy — much simpler.
Ultimately, change occurs when individuals make up their souls and minds that Ego has no place in controlling and guiding healthy relationships. It has no place in setting policies or writing legislation.
I know that, and I share what I can to promote love, peace, and understanding. Martin Luther King knew that; I share his “Letter…” in previous writing. He worked for social justice in the public sector. Maya Angelou knew that; I share her poem “On the Pulse of Morning.” She worked for healing justice in our collective soul.
Elvis Presley worked for light and love in his music, at least in songs like “If I Could Dream,” which I referenced at the start of this work. People feel Heart depth. And as Queen Latifah sings in the musical Hairspray, “I Know Where I’ve Been.” Or any of thousands of publicly talented people and millions of those who are content to just be happy in living Self and personal truth and respond for justice’s sake when the situations present themselves.
Various artists, thinkers, and activists do such in many expressions of Heart. None of them or me is flawless or blameless, but what matters is each of us continues to assess Self and live in happiness.
Each of us may work to ensure freedom and enjoy fellowship; we should all be doing, thinking, feeling, processing, experiencing, acting, and reacting based on Heart energy.
Simplicity. Sitting at lunch counters. Having meals together. Writing some blog posts. Helping when we can whether through teaching literacy or rejecting racial slurs. Acting in reality like the Others are me; they are. Greeting one another with a friendly, easy “Good morning.”
Questions to consider:

Who am I, really?
What is my truth?
