We are all powerful creators, we create our own reality. That’s why the idea of anything being the “one true” or “truth for all” isn’t at all a scientifically or spiritually sound premise. There can certainly be the one true for you or for a group. That’s a choice we all have. To say there is one truth for everyone downright disrespects the creative abilities our creator blessed us with as well as our choice to live free. My belief in freedom keeps me from arguing anyone else’s reality, to argue is to say they do not have the choice to live in their chosen and/or created reality. No choice, no freedom. One can not exist without the other.
I create my reality, we all have this ability. I do not live in a world where racism exists. Racism does exists and there are plenty of racists and those who believe fighting racism is the answer to keep that demonic energy alive. Both sides feed that demon. I don’t fight racism. I don’t need to shrink myself into some kind of anti-racism group or man made label. Virtue signaling and identifying as some kind of political group and begging for inclusion isn’t an approach I see useful. People are doing just that all over the planet and have been doing it for quite some time now. I can’t see where it’s working, racism is still a political weapon of control and a demon some are externalizing their power to. I respect their choice to do so. I’m not making the same choice.
My whole approach to racism is nothing special, its my whole approach to things I don’t want to see in the world. As the great actor with a sexy-ass voice, Mr. Morgan Freeman Says, “Stop talking about it”. In other words, stop giving it our energy. Everything is energy. A person acting racist and a person fighting racism are both giving the racist demon their energy, their feeding it. Both sides create the energy the demon needs to stay alive. I choose not to be demon food.
Racism was invented by Blumenbach in the 19th century. While Blumenbach himself was not a racist, at least not in my research, the government has been using it as a tool of control, it works well. Government can not exist without divide and conquer tactics. They can’t rule the united. To participate in racism is to allow myself to be a pawn in a very sick and evil political game. To argue it or attack racists is feeding it. I create my world. If I want to change the wold, I need to practice personal responsibility and be the change I want to see. What other people have created for themselves isn’t my business and I will not compare myself to it. I’m far to unique and authentic for that. My belief in freedom keeps me from arguing. Anyone has the freedom to choose to be a racist, it has nothing to do with me. I choose not to have those people or the energy of racism in my life. I create my reality and my reality does not welcome that ugly demon. It’s not worthy of my time or energy.
I live in east Tennessee and we have a rainbow of people here. I simply don’t experience racism, not in a store, farmers market, yard sale, jam session, drum circle, where ever I go, the demon isn’t there. It knows there is no food for it here. What I’m experiencing is the opposite. People are so nice, who gives a fuck about what race they are? I live in a diverse community of wonderful people. Why would I choose racism when I don’t live a life or have a mindset that supports it?
When it comes to which businesses to give my time and money to, I never, ever look at the race, gender, belief system or anything else about the owner. None of those things are my business and I really don’t care. I’m a consumer. I’m looking for good quality products and services at fair prices from local small businesses and small online businesses that support the world I want to see. Race is irrelevant. I’m not mindless enough to give my support to business just because the owner has a certain skin color or comes from a certain part of the world. That tells me nothing about the quality of the business, or their products. It tells me nothing about customer service or the reputation of the place. I do not feed that demon so I don’t experience that demon much. It goes where the food is.
I take the same approach with my own business. I don’t care what color my customers are, I treat them all like the Gods and Goddesses they are. I love and appreciate them all for their support. I want them all to be happy with the products they buy from me and feel confident they will always get high quality service with love and respect. There is no room here for the ugly demon of racism. When I think back on all the wonderful experiences I’ve had with my customers and in my personal life, I find myself grateful for choosing not to allow that energy into my life. I would have missed out on so many wonderful moments with amazing people had I invited racism into my life.
I’m not saying I haven’t been discriminated against, we all have at one time or another. It’s how we handle it and ourselves that matters. Are we going to invite that demon to stay by befriending it or fighting it? Are we going to externalize our power to the racist and let them decide our state of being? Are we going to walk away, not feeding the demon? I choose to walk away, no need to be nasty or aruge> Either way, it needs to be present for either scenario to take place. I personally believe who people show me they are and separate myself if they lower themselves to racism, among other things. My intuition will tell me if they aren’t for me. I won’t visit them in their world, that’s not energies need to be around, they serve no one. Staying away from racist people prevents a lot negative racist experiences.
Like everything going on in this beautiful world, it’s all choices. Life is the result of our choices, nothing more, nothing less. If we don’t like the choices we’ve made or if a once good choice is no longer serving us, we can easily change our minds. It’s called growth. There is no decision you make today that you have to keep forever, doing so will greatly stunt growth. It’s only natural to make different choices and want different things as we grow and change. If we can’t grow, learn and expand what is point of existence? Where is the joy and excitement for something new? Where is the motivation to keep moving forward when things get tough? Nothing is forever, not even the choice to be a racist.
