Wednesday's Wisdom ... Reflecting on Social Issues

"Pause for this Brief Conscious Break"

A number of social issues are affecting us today... from relations, financial bullying and international events. It would seem the level of these topics would not affect an entire society, but they do. It's hard to understand how personal relation problems are high (no it's not), how the banking system dictates money and the mental stress of orchestration (huh? will explain later) shapes the public opinion on people. Hopefully, some wisdom will be express in this blog-ver-sa-tion.

In your 20s it's cool to say "I'm single" and continue singing this tune well into your 30s, but reality begin to surface around ages 38-39 years old. The tune then becomes "huh?" Over the course of time; relationships have came and went, leaving some single in parenting; while many others are divorced. Now we're defining the word accountability and the song has changed to, "Wow-zers, it's me!" Reality sets in and we start to realize and hold ourselves accountable for all mishaps, errors and mistakes - who else can you blame when sitting at home alone blogging on a Tuesday, no-body. Seriously this paradigm of fallen relationships has created an unbalanced society. Those of you on the brink of breaking up or divorce "STOP!" and Pause for Brief Conscious Break and think about it. It could be social pressure having an affect, subsequently developing a social apprehensive attitude, making things worst. The practice of good can only beget good, yes it starts with you.
"Social apprehension is a behavior that prevents the progress of personal interaction and unity among people."
In Los Angeles, on Wall Street, and all over the United States; The People vs. Banks is the latest episode being watched on social justice blogs, cause it's not on TV. The finance community are literally bullying the American people and denying people economic opportunities and resolutions during this so-called financial crisis. I say, "so-called" because how can it be really a crisis when all the monies are being confiscated through record breaking profits. It's no crisis, it's just a helluva plan. Mr. Banker if you reading this and saying, "this writer is bias" that is how we feel about you. What happened to you Mr.Banker? Remember your college days, the neighborhood and your struggle to where you sit now?

Preparing for a cashless way of life, I hear you, though your approach is hurting people. This is a Christmas Carol and I'm the blogging angel; show you a reminder from your life records about relatives who are in need of Responsible Banking, fair adequate housing, small business opportunities and a new education system. Maybe you was raised with wealthy (not generalizing wealthy families) and cannot emotionally connect with grassroots reality. In quotations are the words of a man who went to France and fought for your right to bank....
"I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies. If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around the banks will deprive the people of all property - until their children wake-up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered." Thomas Jefferson
Being from Compton we have witnessed first hand guerrilla warfare, the politics of gangs and the orchestration of malice, mayhem and murder in its various forms. In the midst of urban trials, a state of self helplessness and apathy came and rendered the mental state of people helpless. Consistent messaging of urban economics, gang-banging removing lives and what seems no help from society, except for the few programs and organizations that are mentally and physically exhausted today - insecurities developed within our communities

As a Muslim today I am beginning to feel the same messaging but in a new form. In the past year the broadcast of killing Muslim life is becoming a normal process in resolving matters; it is strengthening the Islamophobia arena and deepening social apprehension. Through these urban eyes this is contrasted as gang violence, and gang-banging is senseless violence no matter what level of society it's occurring on. We are beginning to feel the reins of self helplessness and apathy, re-creating itself again and trying separate Muslims from dignity.

Muslim history is very articulate and it documents valuable contributions to the modern world. The Life of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) and The Rightly Guided Caliphs (RA) have all shown an unique intelligence in developing modern government with piety, all attributed to the Creator of the Worlds. Muslims today are some of the most active citizens when it comes to preserving American lives, by showing love and respect for all through dignity for Allah's (Allah, the proper Arabic word for God) creation. Our work, character and lifestyles clearly demarcates us from what Islamophobia hold us accountable for. 

Our urban communities through degrees of emotional intelligence are utilizing healthy forms of decision making and critical thinking skills for a society's progress. Holding strong to morality, dignity and values to resolve difficult situations. The World have accumulated vast resources and wealth, but with its all means "killing" is still a better a solution. In closing I'm going to leave you with this...
