Excerpts from my Books


Search Lights for the Soul
We are born into this world with the Creator's divine light, a search light that allows us to swim when we have been shipwrecked by the storms of life.  But this search light gets covered with shadows of pain and discontent, as we travel our paths.  One of the lessons in life is to be patient -- to hold on until we become anchored in our divine Spirit at the center of our soul.  It is up to us whether we choose to make this difficult, but rewarding journey.  A productive road is embodied with faith -- reading, meditating, and asking God to help us walk against the wind and to navigate the rocky roads.  It is never too late to embrace God's love. 
I will make choices that nourish my divine Spirit.

In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.  And the earth was without form and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep.  And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.  And God said, Let there be light: and there was light.    Genesis 1: 1 - 3

And the Lord God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.    Genesis 2: 7



Lifting Voices of the Collective Struggle:
The voices of our ancestors echo down through the centuries of our struggle and resonate loud and clear as we reclaim our culture. We remember and honor the achievements of our Drum Majors, the leaders and foot soldiers -- opening the door to reconstruct and build our families and communities with Purpose pg. 1. In the words of Garvey "wake up and stay awake" and we will survive the problems facing our families and communities. Our survival skills are deeply rooted. So let us unite in solidarity as we move to our center and build for the next generation. As we move to our center we will have to reach inside ourselves for the love within and nurture it, over coming the negative stereotypes and self-defeating behaviors that block and distort our vision.  
pg. 50-51 ....The struggle we are in is crucial to the survival of our people. As we commit ourselves to the struggle, our differences can be our greatest strength when we "Think Big," There is much work to be done, all skills are needed. By sharing our talents constructively we have a heightened awareness and appreciation of each other's skills ..the road will be complex and convoluted, but as we quicken our footsteps with strategies of empowerment and decisive action-the road will become straightforward and triumphant. As much as possible walk and talk in the manner of the Nguzo Saba (the Seven Principles) as we ascend to our center -- One people -- One destiny.  

The Story That Must be Told "Lessons from the Wisdom Within"
I was approaching my fortieth birthday when I became uprooted. Didn't they say that life begins at forty? Wasn't I a survivor: a person who moved from one bump or collision in the road to a more viable path? Hadn't I conquered my fears and walked with determination as a young student nurse, an Army officer, a teacher and now a counselor? But after twelve years of marriage and three children my marriage was falling apart and I was slipping into a cave of darkness that tormented me. I spent hours searching in my library of psychological textbooks from Sigmund Freud to Harry Stack Sullivan. I bought new books about the theories of depression, but the words on the page had no meaning..........I hid the intensity of my pain behind multiple masks p. 1-2 Through my experiences (Yoga and TM) I have learned that life doesn't accommodate us......We can stay more balanced by creating our own lessons of life .....Saint Kabi. one of the great Indian personalities from the fifteen century, wrote:

You wander from forest to forest ...
Go where you will --
... until you have found God
in your own soul, the whole world
will seem meaningless to you
p 8-9
