I am healing, correcting the false dichotomies I once accepted as REAL and that’s why THIS became an issue for me last month. By “this,” I mean the unfortunate exclusivity of Black History Month (February) in America. So I begin…
I am Black, Negro, Colored, Nigger,
Coon, Blackie, Indian, Red Man, Ingine, Whitey, Cracker, Honkey and many other social constructs, according to the “world” of human classifications. For I have been told my ancestors are Nigerian, Cherokee, Choctaw, Irish and who knows what else…
But I believe… no… I AM greater than all of these classifications,
As are YOU.
African-American is one term to “describe” or classify me
but it is not nearly the sum of who I TRULY am. And who and what I AM is something I am waking up to more and more finding it is beyond any limited definition I once accepted.
I accept African-American – the construct – as a limitation in describing my true essence, my IDENTITY – for as a classification that “we” have simply made up, it does not do me justice! HA!
it is a segment of MY-story, his-story, her-story
it is a segment of YOUR-story
for it is part of the HUMAN-story
and all of humanity is intertwined.
YOUR story is MY story
We are One Humanity
and anything that limits our nature is simply a construct, an illusion
and though “this” construct may have some function
it is subject to all sorts of “threats” because it is limited
and only that which is real is limitless – cannot be threatened, cannot be destroyed
I choose to celebrate BLACK, WHITE, RED, YELLOW & all other STORIES daily as the Human-Story through giving thanks for my existence and living life to the fullest. For my existence and participation in living life fully honors all of existence, as does yours.
John Stringer en route to Guantanamo Bay Cuba for New Years Eve with State of Man
I started the 40 Day Oneness Experiment from James Twyman & Anakha Coman today, a few days after it began, because I just returned home this morning from the US Naval Station at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba performing with my band, State of Man, along with some really cool friends we took with us and learned I didn’t need the book yet to begin.
If you are interested in joining me and thousands of others in the Oneness Experiment, you can start without the book by registering as well at http://promos.hayhouse.com/onenessexperiment/ because first 20 days are up free on the Oneness Experiment website so you can start without the book. (I’ll pick mine up later)!
What further excites me is that I recently clarified one of my goals as to work more with intuition/tapping into Source energy for practical application, shared my goals with my wife, recently thought how great it would be if I could find something that shared practices that assist with this and now learned that part of this course does exactly that.
Be sure to check it out for yourself.
I received a newsletter from ONE.org to day penned by Melinda Gates. It informed me that she and Bill have been having great success working to make a difference in Health Care around the world:
“When I visited Ethiopia earlier this year, I met Tsion, a hard-working young woman in the government’s Health Extension Program. She is trained to tend to pregnant mothers, who otherwise would rely on traditional attendants unable to stop internal bleeding or resuscitate newborns. Tsion has helped take the terror and fear of death out of childbirth for hundreds of women.“
Melinda asked ONE Members to help “spread Tsion’s story, and others—so more Americans realize our tremendous progress improving health around the world and are moved to support America’s continued leadership in global health.
“Please join us on Tuesday, October 27, at 7 PM (EST) for a live online presentation titled “Living Proof: Why we are Impatient Optimists.” RSVP to watch:
Thanks to 30,000 trained health extension workers like Tsion, access to health care in rural areas is rapidly expanding. And the health of Ethiopian children and women is improving.
That’s why, when it comes to global health, Bill and I are optimists—but we’re impatient optimists. We need to build on this success now, by expanding it to even more women in Ethiopia and helping families in other countries benefit from what Ethiopia has learned.”
I plan to make the call and hope you can, too. Jut RSVP for the webcast via the link so you can “ learn for yourself how U.S. investments in global health are changing the world, and share the proof with your network“:
PS. Melinda also I wrote more about her experiences with Tsion in Ethiopia for the ONE Blog. You can read her entry here: http://www.one.org/r?r=236&id=1275-3791833-sgcfT9x&t=4
Yes. It is true. Today is my “coming out of the closet day,” but in a Spiritual way. Today I am making it public knowledge that for the last couple of years, I’ve been meditating and receiving guidance which I’ve kept on the down low because I was instructed to do so (perhaps due to my own fear of what others would think, my own need for growth and/or other reasons). Now, I guess I’ve grown to trust enough to reveal this because today I was guided to bring this into public light.
It is a service I’ve performed anonymously with my wife at the site www.askrealitylove.com The site is now a blog and you can read some of the interesting questions others have submitted and the answers we’ve received from “Reality/Love.”
What is “Reality/Love” you ask? Go to the site to find out: http://www.askrealitylove.com or http://askrealitylove.wordpress.com

I got this quote today after having a late night of dealing with buried emotions from my past in a very productive and somewhat intuitive way. Thankfully, I resolved these emotions and saw the incident they were tied to in a whole new light. But this happened only because I was willing to ask for a better understanding. In fact, I asked “if we are put in circumstances for our best and highest development, then why did this happen?”
It took a lot of stilling my mind and letting go of urges to seek some external re-source for the answer for me to just be still and allow the answer to come. Finally, I began to see how this incident had caused a clear chain of events in my life that taught me valuable lessons that are paramount to my continued growth today. Relaying the whole situation from then and now to my wife, I even realized that the whole “story line” that I could clearly see now was much like some amazing movie script. lol My “hidden” resentment disappeared last night, thanks to taking the time to still myself and allow my “God-given emotional guidance system” to teach, and I am now grateful for the whole situation. What a change!
This sort of change can for anyone regarding anything from your past, so if you’d like to know the full process I used, join my new “Spiritual Practice” email list by visiting http://www.reverbnation.com/johnstringeraskrl
