The recollected mind is awake
In the knowledge of the Atman
Which is dark night to the ignorant:
The ignorant are awake in their sense-life
Which they think is daylight:
To the seer it is darkness.

In Franz Kafka’s parable “Before the Law”, a man arrives at the Door to the Law and asks for admittance. The door stands open but the doorkeeper tells him to wait. The man waits for a long time. He curses his bad luck, at first boldly and loud. Later, as he grows old, he only grumbles to himself. Finally, with his dying breath, he asks the doorkeeper why nobody other than himself has ever come before the Door to the Law. The doorkeeper says, “No one eles could ever be admitted here, since this gate was made only for you,” and the doorkeeper shuts the door.

Quote from King Center site : “There are nearly a million documents associated with the life of Martin Luther King Jr. These pages will present a more dynamic view than is often seen of Dr. King’s life and times. The documents reveal the scholar, the father, and the pastor. Through these papers we see the United States of America at one of its most vulnerable, most honest and perhaps most human moments in history. There are letters bearing the official marks of royalty and the equally regal compositions of children. You will see speeches, telegrams, scribbled notes, patient admonitions and urgent pleas. This spotlight shows you a glimpse of the remarkable history within this collection.”
You should check it out. Black America should do this for everyone; famous or not!

[Blueprint for G.O.P. ID voter suppression]. U.S. identification cost too much money! Birth certificate, passport, state ID, drivers licenses; they can be costly. I personally believe a birth certificate should be FREE! It’s the ‘one’ document anyone needs to prove who you are. You need a birth certificate to get the other forms of identification. Catch (F-bomb) 22!
Why is the city, county, or state charging fees for ID’s? 😦 Homeless and poor people are being penalized for being an American. (This has nothing to do with illegal immigrants).

Will this dispute over a body of water lead to a sea war? Japan doesn’t seem to be having good luck with water. They are still repairing after the tsunami of 2011. I don’t think Japan should get into a fight over water!

That’s right America, it’s time to go ‘back to school’. Don’t you feel the anxiety coursing through your fingers?
It’s time to go back to school so you can…
Pull your grades up,
Pull your brain up,
Pull your self up,
Pull your pantsup! 😦

I am now officially hooked on Purity Ring! 🙂 It’s a good thing I was listening to WXRT radio one night. Check out their other music videos as well. Mind bending!

Gabby Douglas became the first African-American woman to win the all-around Olympic gymnastics title. That’s a big honor and I hope she gets a chance to cash in on her Gold medal.
Now, if only the “bitch ass” Black people would STOP hating on her about her hair! Yes! I said it and you know who you are! I find it embarrassing and disgusting that Black Americans would react to her public image like this. 😦 H8TR CITY USA – population : Too many Black people.
