Three Minutes

TimeI’m back. I’ve missed you. I feel like Forrest Gump who took off running for 3 years and then one day just stopped. It must have hit him like it did me. You can’t hide or run from your feelings or thoughts. You can suppress them, but they are always waiting for the opportunity to remind you... yoohoo, over here. It has taken me the past four years to accept the lost of my son. Truthfully I will always have this wound that is a part of me but I’ve decided not to let it take my life. This blog was my refuge for these past years. It gave me a place, a thing to do so I would make myself show up for life. It worked because as painful as it was, I insured monthly that words were on this site. I can’t describe to you how difficult it was to put two words together in the midst of my dark night of the soul but approximately six months ago I woke up and there was light. The light of joy and promise that came from accepting Jumoke’s love from within myself. It is a different relationship that I have with him now. I feel his presence everyday and, yes, I talk to him. He is about his business and has assured me that I must be about mine - to fulfill my purpose. It is, and has always been, my desire to fulfill my purpose. I just didn’t know I could be drop kicked off of my path along the way. As I said, I’m back.

As I was turning calendars throughout the house at the beginning of the month, I came across this question, “What would you say to the world if you had 3 minutes?” I immediately started thinking and feeling the words. I thought WHAT would I say if I had global attention? One shot for the entire population of the earth to hear my words with no do overs. Since spending the past four years thinking and feeling my internalized truths, the words flowed from my heart versus my head. Three minutes are precious when there are only 1440 minutes in the day. So this is my three minutes;

My fellow citizens of humanity, PEACE. I come before you today to tell you that I believe there is a greater presence within us that we have allowed to be smothered. It is time for that presence, which I call God, Spirit, Divine Consciousness, the ALL, to shine. This light, this love, is you and me. This presence which breathes me and every breathe is an opportunity to speak love. You see, all I know of love is that love is all there is. I can’t think of one other thing that would solve all the pain, violence and chaos we have created, but love. Saying it one billion times multiplied by a billion will not change a thing. It’s the action of this powerful word that yearns to be lived.

I ask you today to remember the words of some of my favorite teachers, “And I say unto you love ye one another’ Jesus; “One World, One Love” Bob Marley and “When the power of love overcomes the love of power. We will have PEACE.” Jimi Hendrix. Love is an action not a word. Let us stop talking and start being LOVE. The change we keep hearing about will take years - or will never happen. It can only be true if we believe that. Get still and listen to the silence and you will hear what I hear. LOVE is the reason we are here and when we own that, there will be peace.

I wish everyone a blessed and joyous Mother’s Day.

From my heart to yours, nothing but LOVE,

PATRICIA AMAZON
