The Visiting Place…

ann johnson-murphree

An image of the heavens,

the wind of angel wings blow

across golden pavement on

an endless road, no place to

go when the lost search for


The road runs through a crowded

place filled with souls, none had

a face; a loving mercy on angelic

winds went swiftly by; somewhere

in the distance a compassionate


In this place lives loneliness and

shame, far from the gates of Heaven,

a place where even the angels look

away, a visiting place; no one who

passes through wants to stay.

Racism and Equality

What one determined woman can accomplish

What one determined woman can accomplish

There must come a day when we see each other as brothers and sisters. We are all created the same way. If you take away the differences in culture, gender, and possibly religion, we are all, each and every one of us, the same. The color of our skin is the difference. I think perhaps it could be said that we make a beautiful bouquet of human beings. As I look at people I can see how beautiful we are.  If you take a rose garden and wait till all the blooms are flowers, It is so beautiful that it hurts the heart. People are like that. We are beautiful as individuals and in a wonderful group. The beauty comes from being different colors. The reaction comes from fear of what is different.

Maps of slaverry and racism

The differences between White people, Asian people, Brown people, Black people and Native peoples is so minute. We have different colored skins. Who made this decision. Why are we all different colors? Why don’t we all look the same? Whatever is Divine in your life is the energy that created us all. No differences but our skin color. There are scientific reasons for some of our color differences. Melalin in the skin in different amounts makes for different colors.

Deep down there are no differences

This hatred we have developed for people different than us is a great sorrow. I think Divinity would be very sad, if it feels and thinks as humans do, that the creativity with which we were made must suffer because of all of our choices to hate different people. We were not created to be toy solders to make war on each other and to think we are better than some. All of this inequality and suffering is man made. It is not something we should be proud of. No one group of human beings are better or superior to others. Where did human beings got the concept of superiority?  The Universe has not started that idea, the vicious rumor that one kind of human being is better than another.

All religious paths teach love, kindness, compassion and acceptance. It is one of the common threads that hold us together as a species. We cannot go to our churches, temples, mosques and temples and expect that Divinity will bless us when it knows who we really are, what we really think and what we really do. It is time for change and only we, the combined human family can change this. It starts with each and every one of us. A single light can cause a wildfire. It is time for us all to light our lights and to walk away from racism and inequality.

Color can't hurt anyone.  People can hurt others.

Color can’t hurt anyone.
People can hurt others.

Let's work for equality for all human beings.

The Two Frogs

A good Friday story

My Good Time Stories

A group of frogs were traveling through the woods, and two of them fell into a deep pit. When the other frogs saw how deep the pit was, they told the two frogs that they were as good as dead. The two frogs ignored the comments and tried to jump up out of the pit with all their might. The other frogs kept telling them to stop, that they were as good as dead. Finally, one of the frogs took heed to what the other frogs were saying and gave up. He fell down and died.

The other frog continued to jump as hard as he could. Once again, the crowd of frogs yelled at him to stop the pain and just die. He jumped even harder and finally made it out. When he got out, the other frogs said, “Did you not hear us?” The frog explained to them…
