Wed- 1/2/13- Speaking of being more attentive as far as the project in Gangadiwali is concerned, I would like to share with you the “best of intentions” for the year 2013. To begin with, I hope that you and your family members are in the company of good health.
The word “intention” came to mind this morning, because I am aware of the power an “intention” can carry. Say for example “bad intention” verses “good intention”. I am aware that if you feed or cultivate any of the above “intentions” eventually you will reap what you sow.
I have been speaking about seeds lately; allow me to play with the words “intention and seed” for a while. But before I continue, may I ask you this question, which one comes first, the intention or the seed?
Speaking of questions, here is something I would like to share with you before I continue, “Since October 4th 2012, I have written a total of eight articles about how I see things through the eyes of a Garífuna.
This one is about coming to terms with the person in the mirror, because I have been looking forward to this day. I wanted to have the freedom to say, that today is also my Garifuna B’akTun.
Those of us that were born in the sixties and before are the result of an era that brought with it a lot of questions. A question is like when you are hungry or thirsty. Answers are like food and water”.
Allow me to take you back to the “best of my intentions” these are the seeds I have been talking about all along. I became a farmer at Gangadiwali four years ago. However this is a journey that began in Quehueche, not far from Gangadiwali in 1968, I was approaching eight, the year Martin Luther King was assassinated. I have done this before, and I asked once again for Martin Luther King’s permission to borrow a few of his words to say this “Now I’m just happy that God has allowed me to live in this period to “see” what is unfolding. And I’m happy that He’s allowed me to be in Gangadiwali.
I will continue to cultivate my best intentions through ways like this, and want to thank you for being the soil.
Happy New Year.
