For A Mother's Love

The Tragedy Of Living Without It (love) or to have never known one hug

While there are many standards of progress that we can attribute our success or failures to as a nation and as human beings there is only one standard that holds the power to transform the world, and that is a mother’s love. Without it (a mother’s love) we can be assured of a world that has no leaders who love, rather who have a tendency to rob, incriminate the innocent, and murder them through the use of wars without just cause. So far we have seen the tragedy of kids shooting kids, killing teachers, and the eruption of world conflict throughout the ages, none of it makes any sense. In awe we watch our civilization vanish right before our eyes, the legal structures that once made this country semi-stable has crumbled under the weight of a corrupt government, and the people who still follow those old ideals of grandeur continue to delude themselves that there are no problems which we should be concerned about. The importance of a mother’s love to a child is so salient that it means the difference between a prosperous and wonderful life for that child or the ecstasy of a wondrous nightmare, a life of crime, hate, or worse.

Our society has found it essential to cast women in many roles, most of these roles believe it or not have not been originally chosen by women themselves but by outside forces with outside interest. Today we find our women working in all types of positions doing all types of things, yet where this may appear great and prosperous it also signifies the breakdown of society, especially where it concerns black families. Today we find most black men in jail and most black women at the head of the table in charge of the house, and family, with many of them going to work to support that life style. Obviously there is no time anymore for that special brand of love that only a mother can give to her children, the children as in devoice have lost both of their parents in a war of the sexes and the war on the criminalization of black men. You see I don’t believe that once upon a time during one summer in one afternoon all the black men that was in this nation just up and randomly decided to leave their homes, their wives and children just to go to prison or just to live a life of loneliness, there certainly was some help to these ends and it was a major kind of help at that (but that’s a whole issue in and of itself). We can see the results of a parentless child as our children find ways to rebel against the social structure that we have indirectly adopted. We find our children in the streets at night, searching for ways to disrupt, or act out of character with civilized nature and yet we blame them, we blame their parents or their lack of education; we never seem to blame the system for anything that they have systematically had a hand in creating. While everybody is out working or in jail no one is raising the future, while everyone is so concerned about their careers no one is concerned about the future of the world. When your career is finished and you retire you may wake up to find that you are old and live in a world where these once small children that you neglected has now grown into tyrants of the communities, villains who scoffs at your pain and who would gladly create pandemonium in your life for the cost of a joint. This is our fault not any one else’s, these problems belong to the communities who were charged by God to raise their own (raise up a tree straight and strong and it will never depart from its form), but we have allowed the government to usurp our power as parents in our own homes, we have allowed the criminal elements in our streets to take charge of schooling our children teaching them social studies (how to perceive the world around them) and biology (the thug life and sex education on the streets), and we have allowed the government school system to mis-educate our children so that they can be assured of mishandling them during their political life time as they did us.

Mothers today must tell their sons that they love them and tell them often, for we do not know it and it hurts, it hurts to the core. Everything that we do in our lives we do it for love or a lack thereof. The arms that we expect to encircle us as boys we have never known and boys generally feel emptiness so vast that they have never been able to explain it. “How do you feel jimmy, what are you thinking”, “I don’t really know”, is his answer, how sad to live all of your adult life and not know for one moment what you are feeling. Imagine; having terrible illusive pain and not be aware of it or be able to express it, to not even be capable of showing yourself that you feel or need or want. So many of our men grow up without love in their lives and should you try to hug them it makes them feel insecure, invaded, evasive and unsure of themselves although they can’t tell you why. Some young guys today will simply push you away from them if you hug them too long. What is their reason for being so hard and untouchable?

Ask yourself; why does the black male child fail in school and usually end up in special ed classes, then prisons, while the female child prospers and usually end up completing college and at the long passage of a good career? Is it because there exist a different standard for the male child in this society than it does for the female child particularly in their raising processes? In our culture we believe that a male child should never cry, he should never show weakness, he should never hit a woman no matter what, we teach him to be silent (never complaining about his needs) and unemotional. I watched my neighbor’s son being abused by his sister on a regular basis and he was never allowed to complain or fight back because women (his mother) were so afraid that their sons would turn out (grow up) to become abusive men, and because of this he did. I saw him later in life, he was drunk all the time and he frequently beat his wife and he was always in and out of prison. The cry from his people was always loud and clear as the whole neighborhood heard them screaming at him from the windows of their apartment “what the hell is wrong with you why can’t you do like your sister”. I had always wondered why these principals (to not hit or disrespect the male child) weren’t’ taught to the female child as well…. He certainly grew up confused about the relationship between a man and a women, I guess he thought it was a normal war game that men and women culturally played.

Instead I notice that the opposite was being taught inadvertently to the female child in an attempt to secure her virtue, that all men was no good (especially the black man), that even though you have the right to wear whatever you wanted (no matter how seductive and revealing it was), and that men have no right to think of just sex every time they saw a female (the only thing on the mind of men is sex). I could be wrong but my thoughts are such that I believe that the systematic destruction of the family structure had worked and it worked rather well, as millions of families find themselves strangers in their own household, or at worst enemies one to another, mother against daughter and father against son.

The raising process that we afford our children says something about the way we perceive ourselves and our surroundings, what we think and our laden opinions; you know those generalities that without proof we act upon daily. But what it also says is that we believe that boys and girls are so different that they need different kinds of love (girls get general love a more caring kind of love while boys get tough love a do it yourself kind of love) and different kinds of care. I will admit that at some point in a boy’s life he will demand a different kind of love and at that time you will know it, because he will insist that you don’t hug him in front of his friends or call him dumplin in front of the whole class, and for certain don’t kiss him anywhere in public, he will explode (smile). (you’ll embrace him and make him feel impotent and soft). However irrespective of all that during the formidable years boys are just like girls as it is their nature to seek out the first teacher, their first interactive being, the original woman in their lives and the first miraculous love that will carry them through the rest of their lives.

You see none of this was an accident (to be robed of motherhood and childhood) it was a long thought out plan that was instigated by powerful and unscrupulous men whose only goal was to take over the entire world. I realize that I am side tracking the subject here but for the most part it is relevant if I may be allowed to finish. These men who control politics, the world bank, the world courts and so on got their by the long term process and through long thought-out planning. Keep in mind that at one time women didn’t work, they were home doing the most important job (the most important job in the world) of raising our children while men worked. (That's when women use to say that "back then there were some good men who respected women" and so on). Today women say that they "can’t find a good man"; I wonder why?

We must begin to understand that the scheme of our system is one of complete control by these few powerful men and that even our personal lives have been altered and manipulated by these people. Our women have been shuffled off to work to increase the taxes within government and to disrupt the stability of the family structure, to make you believe that it was your choice through the women’s liberation movement (a movement that was orchestrated and funded by the Rockefellers).
Whether you believe that or not is of no consequence because the most important thing here is to recapture the nature of motherhood in the lives of our children, by securing that joy in the hearts of our children it means to secure the love of life and the future of our people along with the survival of civilization, and that’s no small job. Women have the power, they have always had the power to create and the power to destroy as they and they alone can spawn and develop the man of their dreams or the man of their choosing, whether it be a man of war or a man of God, a womanizer or God’s gift to women. With that special love that only a mother can give war can be conquered, hate can be eliminated; peace and tranquility can become a permanent reality in and around this ailing world. I believe that 75% of a man’s emotional feelings and his ability to express emotion or to even know what they are comes from the love that his mother either instilled or distilled in him. Of course this information is not statically backed by any degree of scholarly medium yet I still stand behind it with absolute sincerity. I also recognize the absolute need of the father’s presents as he alone can give a different perspective of life that both male and female children need in order to earnestly cope with this world. It is because women for the most part spend more time with the children than does men, and because they have bonded with the children from the conception of birth to the cradle of the grave they have the ultimate power to change the world.

And if you don’t happen to believe in Jesus as one of the sons of God then surely you must recognize that you as a mother have the amazing power to make one, and with proof all around us today, you also have the power to make a Hitler. You see the man without love, those who have never known love neither gives love nor accepts love, it makes them feel weak, and the appearance of weakness can not be utilized or tolerated as men of the world.

And however, should it be require of me to remind you moms out there I will, we could never blame you nor intentionally put you to shame for on this plain you represent our God here on earth, you represent the future of our descendants and the happiness that is possible for them. Without a doubt I have come to understand that there is no greater love than a mother’s love, or a man who lays down his life for his mother or for the sons that mother’s produce. For by your leave children of the world can be saved, the crops will grow to its fullest extent because the seeds that were planted were spoon fed to the earth by the hands of somebody’s mother.

We love you moms (mother’s of the world), there is no me without you, there can be no righteous world without the tenderness of such a moderate love as yours, a love that only you have the power to give. Mom it was you who introduced me to this life and introduced me to the purity of womanhood and the nature of my future wife. Remember that I love you, and consider that it was you whose hands have nourished the seeds of life when no one else would or could.

Credo I'm so glad you wrote an article on the Power of Love, that's what I hoped to write about as I evolve my Series. This wonderful statement of yours contains the essence of what I've always known.. "Everything that we do in our lives we do it for love or a lack thereof." The entire world can be understood by the presence or lack of love, and it can be healed with the heart of compassion... Like you and millions of others in the world I can sense the full presence of love and compassion or the lack thereof by degree, within all human endeavors--in individuals and the ways people think/feel, relationships, groups, social systems, social policies, governments, businesses, the corporate climate, academic frameworks for all subjects like economics, history, and psychology, the architecture of cities and buildings, the resonances of music, etc etc My experience has led me to see that there are two components at work, 1) wounding from childhood which continues into adulthood until healed, 2) the degree to which one is born heart-evolved. If one has worked with children and chimpanzees you know that love & compassion & forgiveness are natural gifts we're all born with. So it becomes clear how many wounded emotional attitudes are taught by society & parents, like racism, sexism, greed, selfishness, etc etc Yet many people have a gift of being deeply loving and compassionate which often persists regardless of upbringing, and others have the gift of love with the heart courage to lead a nation, like Martin Luther King Jr & Gandhi, etc As they say--"Either Love is present in our every act and word, our every thought, or it is not. And to the degree that Love is absent or waning, so too our healing is diminished and postponed. For love heals people--the ones who give it and the ones who receive it." The courage to heal is rooted in the heart, healing requires honesty and emotional authenticity with oneself and then others, then we can heal our society and the world.
