pretty clear.

Sept. 3, 2016 !!!!

Maat Petrova seated in a Botanical Garden enjoying how the butterflies, she says, love her! She is a Goddess retrieved by Spirit from crudeness surrounding her that cannot help but be transformed by her understanding, and relationship with her womb. This is a 'something' inherent within women born of a woman. Devoid of relationship with this power set women are making no real strides towards empowerment. Ignorance of this numbs women and girls they have birthed. The lack of real knowledge of self abandons the womb. But, do they care?

Wrong question. - Gregory E. Woods, Keeper of Stories 8/16/17

the 53%! Who dey is?

Michael Scipio is a very thoughtful man I respect for his short introspective pieces spanning the great contradictions of American life. He is skilled at asking the right questions. This day, as a challenge to thought he asked questions against a photograph of white women and their men, who were Klansmen at a rally. He wrote:

"Exhibit umpteen hundred: We all experience social learning, but questions remain. Are these women being oppressed? Are they being unduly coerced against their will to participate, essentially rendering them victims of white patriarchy? Or do they have adequate agency, the ability to make good rational choices? Are they willing participants in advancing white supremacy? Who are the 53% of white women that voted for Trump? Will you please stand up and tell me how you really feel..." 

Those are good questions, I answer, but they give these white women a way out of the equation. They don't get an out because in the 21st century apologizing has become the extend of 'understanding' or 'addressing' complex racial beliefs and the violence, which is the language of white supremacy. You can't remove these white women from either side because the benefits of the military branch of white conquest and domination is the Klan and other similar groups. They protect all white Americans. The new nuances of color politics are of no consideration.

Now the last question: "Who are the 53% of white women that voted for Trump?" That is the only question to weigh. We know the answers to the other ones. Our ancestors and parents taught us of the darker hue everything about white Americans, their practices and beliefs and how to have a chance to excel. If we wanted to simply exist there were always methods. - Gregory E. Woods, Keeper of Stories 10/16/17

What Thrives in the States

Freedom contradiction. This is one of the great, deep and tragic misconceptions of white American thought patterns...

"There’s a part of this story that’s starting to make me nervous, and it’s this: I am very uncomfortable with the president of the United States being able to dictate the behavior and power of anybody." ~ Rush Limbaugh

"First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out because I was not a Socialist. Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out because I was not a Trade Unionist. Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out because I was not a Jew. Then they came for me. And there was no one left to speak for me." ~ Martin Niemoller

Two Ailments of American Life.

Miles Davis after being beaten by New York city police August 25, 1959 and released on bond.

Why We Raise the Fist. Why we sit. Why we kneel. Did you know Miles Davis was the victim of police brutality? Every week the same refrain 'they brought it on themselves'. 'If only they would have complied' - dot dot dot. That uppity negro.

On August 25, 1959 in New York City, Miles Davis was beaten and arrested by the police, for SWB (standing while black) in front of the nightclub Birdland.

...A white police officer, Gerald Gilduff, ordered Miles to “move on.” Davis replied, “Move on, for what?" While engaged with the initial officer another policeman comes up and hits Miles in the head with a billy club. Miles would write later in his autobiography "Blood was running down the khaki suit I had on." Witnesses said Detective Donald Rolker hit Davis many times. Approximately a dozen witnesses stated Detective Rolker was drunk at the time of the incident.

Miles eventually posted $1,000 bail for his release pending trial. He was charged with third degree assault and disorderly conduct. You know what Malcolm X said, ~ " They put their club upside your head. And then turn around and accuse you of attacking them... They attack you, bust you all upside your mouth, and then take you to court and charge you with assault... "

Eventually, Miles was exonerated. From the trial a piercing succinct commentary, "It would be a travesty on justice to adjudge the victim of an illegal arrest guilty of the crime of assaulting the one who made the arrest." Justices Grassman, Dunaif and Richman cleared then 33 year old Davis after an all day trial." - Michael Scipio 

Rose McGowan, actress accusing Weinstein of raping her. . .

The actor Rose McGowan has said she was “blacklisted” because she “got raped”...[ “All of you Hollywood 'A-list' golden boys are LIARS,” she tweeted..

“You lie,” she told Ben Affleck, alleging that the actor had known about Weinstein’s behavior for years.]

McGowan is one of more than 30 women who have come forward since the New York Times revealed sexual harassment and rape allegations against W...einstein going back decades. In a series of tweets last week she also accused Roy Price, the head of Amazon Studios, of ignoring her when she made the allegation earlier.

Weinstein reached a settlement with McGowan when she was 23 years old [The New York Times reported that she received a $100,000 payment from Weinstein in 1997; the settlement included a confidentiality agreement prohibiting her from discussing the incident, which allegedly occurred in a hotel room at the Sundance Film Festival.]"



from within: the Sacred Triangle

Sacred Geometry - Cosmic Eye with Tube Torus

Sacredness is gently placed upon and within Stefania Ferrario the way impulse
aligns the heartbeat with release. Is this lust? - Dawn Wolf, Keeper of Stories 6.2.17

"Prayer in faith in the belief of reverence is learned, if one forgot the basis tenets of holy life, we are born into from our mother's wombs we are taught to devalue in Western countries." - Dawn Wolf, Keeper of Stories 6.2.17

Bald head, naked body of Katoucha speaks of,
and to strength. Is this lust?

An astonishing explosion of power from within comes from this woman, and many women of the darker hue, who have developed powers. It isn't lust. Her presence and composure doesn't even demand respect; it comes from that place and more that is incomprehensible to the crude amongst us. If a man cannot respect her clothed or not, the fault is in his character ill-informed and badly taught. - Gregory E. Woods, Keeper of Stories [6/2/17]
