The Pyramids




From my office window, I can see the treetops and buildings on the westside of Indy. Its a beautiful view. Indy can be very beautiful. When I angle to my right just a little bit, I can see "the Pyramids" near 86th Street. They seem so far away and yet I know they are not.

I was talking with a friend here in the office. She was going through some stuff with her boyfriend and questioning if she wanted to even go through the drama. Her confusion was she felt he was the "One", the man she was going to be with but things were looking and feeling the opposite. At that moment, I looked at the Pyramids. I told her to look at the buildings with me. I told her that was her end result, marriage to her dude (since that was her goal). I said but look at the trees, the streets, and the buildings before you get there. You have to navigate through all of that before you get to the Pyramids. Her face lit up and she understood what I was trying to tell her.

I did tell her though, she needs to be sure she had the right destination. Sometimes we think we are to headed to the Pyramids but its Monument Circle were we need to be. So many, including myself, make this mistake all the time.

I told her to pray and check her spirit and then head for the Pyramids, take a map, prepare for road blocks, street repairs, broken traffic lights, accidents, detours, etc. but you'll get there if you believe and have faith.

Confessions of a Recovering Misogynist" by Kevin Powell

In the past few weeks, I've had the opportunity to have very brief conversations with Kevin Powell. Its very interesting to speak with someone with similar passions for community service. As someone who has been very transparent on her blog, I find this essay by Kevin refreshing. I just happen to see this on Facebook as someone posted it many months ago.
Thanks KP.


I AM A SEXIST MALE.

I take no great pride in saying this, I am merely stating a fact. It is not that I was born this way-rather, I was born into this male-dominated society, and consequently, from the very moment I began forming thoughts, they formed in a decidedly male-centered way. My "education" at home with my mother, at school, on my neighborhood playgrounds, and at church, all placed males in the middle of the universe. My digestion of the 1970s American popular culture in the form of television, film, ads, and music only added to my training, so that by as early as age nine or ten I saw females, includ…

I will never, ever, never, ever live in a box.


again.


If I can't be appreciated, celebrated, loved, and befriended with honestly and openly....with no conditions and controls.....then I can't be....for you.

I'm a good friend.  I'm a good person. I deserve good things from good people who really want to celebrate whatever connection I have with them....outside the box.


I'm free to be.

The Ankh

Ankh : The Original Cross



The Ankh is defined as: The symbolic representation of both Physical and Eternal life. It is known as the original cross, which is a powerful symbol that was first created by Africans in Ancient Egypt.


The Ankh is commonly known to mean life in the language of Ancient Kemet (land of the Blacks) renamed Egypt by the Greeks. It is also a symbol for the power to give and sustain life, the Ankh is typically associated with material things such as water(which was believed by Egyptians to regenerate life), air, sun, as well as with the Gods, who are frequently pictured carrying an Ankh. The Egyptian king is often associated with the Ankh also, either in possession of an Ankh (providing life to his people) or being given an Ankh (or stream of Ankhs) by the Gods. This can be seen in the picture of King Senworsert below who is holding two Ankhs to his chest. There are numerous examples that have been found that were made from metal, clay and wood. It is usually worn as …
