Rosie O’Donnell made me think today about how people look at others, some who are gay and lesbian and others that might not fit society’s criteria. From my psychic viewpoint, and that is all I can go by, I know that gay and lesbian people I know didn’t want to oppose society and become the brunt of criticisms and horrible jokes. Most just wanted to fit in but knew when very small that they really weren’t what most considered the norm.
I can sympathize. When I grew up, psychics had the same problem. In the first place I didn’t know what to call me as I’ve told you in my book, “Ghosts Talk,” and I knew that I was definitely different but I didn’t want others to hate me for it. There are some things in God’s world that just are. Really that’s a good thing. Can you imagine a world where everyone and everything is exactly the same?
Another item that I want to address is people calling others names. Who among us really has the right, or in other words, is pure enough to cast stones (borrowed from the Bible)? My father, who didn’t know he had certain ancestry until a few years ago, was the original Archie Bunker. He has a wonderful heart but some times his words just don’t match. To my estimation, we reap what we sow. Always! It’s called Karma. Well, one of daddy’s favorite racial words is what he found out he had most in his heritage. There is a God! Now, on occasion his sweet daughter, that’s me, reminds him when he uses that special term, that he is one.
My thoughts on any hurtful words are always be careful what you say. You can’t take words back. Like a surgeon with a scalpel, the words have done their job to help or heal whether you say you’re sorry or not. And, one more thing, remember this too, if you call yourself or members of your race unhealthy names, others will too because some want to emulate you: others like you putting yourself down.
On another note, words and emotion manifest. Speak truth and you will be rewarded with that truth. I would rather be remembered as an honest person who tried to help others when they memorialize me, no matter what I am or what I’ve done. In that sense you have to put actions behind your words.
Words mean something. Use them wisely.
