Phil Kaye: Why We Tell Stories

Efforts for our world.

The plain fact is that the planet does not need more “successful” people.
But it does desperately need more peacemakers, healers, restorers, storytellers, and lovers of every shape and form.
It needs people who live well in their places.
It needs people of moral courage willing to join the effort to make the world habitable and humane.
And these needs have little to do with success as our culture has defined it.

The war on men through the degradation of woman. – Jada Pinkett-Smith

“How is man to recognize his full self, his full power through the eye’s of an incomplete woman? The woman who has been stripped of Goddess recognition and diminished to a big ass and full breast for physical comfort only.

The woman who has been silenced so she may forget her spiritual essence because her words stir too much thought outside of the pleasure space. The woman who has been diminished to covering all that rots inside of her with weaves and red bottom shoes.

I am sure the men, who restructured our societies from cultures that honored woman, had no idea of the outcome. They had no idea that eventually, even men would render themselves empty and longing for meaning, depth and connection.

There is a deep sadness when I witness a man that can’t recognize the emptiness he feels when he objectifies himself as a bank and truly believes he can buy love with things and status. It is painful to witness the betrayal when a woman takes him up on that offer.

He doesn’t recognize that the (creation) of a half woman has contributed to his repressed anger and frustration of feeling he is not enough. He then may love no woman or keep many half women as his prize.

He doesn’t recognize that it’s his submersion in the imbalanced warrior culture, where violence is the means of getting respect and power, as the reason he can break the face of the woman who bore him four children.

When woman is lost, so is man. The truth is, woman is the window to a man’s heart and a man’s heart is the gateway to his soul.

Power and control will NEVER out weigh love.

May we all find our way.

Say yes to life.

Say yes to life.

It‘s like th sun rising on a Monday morning.
saying here we are,
a new day,
a new week,
a new me,
coming around again,
to shine for you.

To shine for you,
when the dark moments creap around the corner.
To shine, when you wish you‘d stayed in bed.
To shine, so you see the beauty of this world at the periphery of yourself.

So you will find the white bird in the durty river,
the longing soul of the boy between the drugdealers,
the teacher who is giving her best for her students,
the artist who is sharing a story that will stir your heart,
the bug that‘s behind the leave.

Maybe no-one ever saw them before,
but they will shine you the way the sun reasures.

So you remember,
it‘s like the sun rising on a Monday morning,
when we dare to say yes to life.
