I do not like watching television. I do not like sitting and engaging in passive activities. So, as I sit here, although I do not like sitting, it does bring me joy to share what is on my mind. One of the things on my mind is Steven Universe.
I watched television…I have been watching television so much this past week and the reason being is because I was drawn to how a kindred spirit of mine “soft-marketed” Steven Universe as depicting the depth to which emotions can swerve us, impact us, move us. I was sold…
No spoilers here. Just musings.
Perfection is not real.
Pain is inevitable.
Appreciating another person’s experience is a choice.
There are no right or wrong answers.
We can get out of our own way.
Suffering is optional.
Another kindred spirit of mine has a message for you.

Grounds For Clarity, LLC understands that inequity exists on our soil. United States soil.
When others hurt, we hurt. When we see hurt we do not just stand by.
We all have reasoning for behind why we are responding the way we are: looking the other way, plugging our ears, covering our eyes, devastated, or even oblivious to what is going on: compounded institutionalized racism towards those with dark skin. I am speaking specifically about the compounded institutionalized racism toward African Americans.
Education is the key to empowering us all toward unity. Here is a message from someone that harnesses the unified heaviness we all feel, regardless of our skin color:
“Good Morning Change Makers, ( This is Sandy Holman, Director of The Culture C.O-.O.P, http://www.cultureco-op.com)
Please join us virtually, this Saturday, May 30th, from 2-4 to preview our Cost Of Darkness Documentary done in collaboration with UC Davis Students, nationally and internationally renown experts, courageous community activists, families, and communities nefariously impacted by entrenched, “dark skin,” racism, supremacy ideology, systemic oppression, injustice and insidious inequity, and all through a young adult lens. It is powerful what they have done, in collaboration with the Culture C.O-.O.P, equity partners and my over 35 years of experience doing this critical work. It is also foundational for creating a mindshare for real systemic change and strategic interventions which are more informed and impactful.
Interested in learning more about how you can watch this documentary?

Below, are two simple reflections I wrote for people recently and consistently over times, who are troubled and horrified over the continued killings of black and brown people throughout our history. I have spent my life , in all forms, with all age groups, and with a variety of organizations/ institutions, nationally and globally as a proponet of equity, systemic and proactive approaches for transformative change, and encouraging people to have a historic understanding and timeline of supremacy ideology, injustice, inequity and structuralized systems
The festering wounds of cross generational killings and Murders of black and brown people, and especially black men, is something that takes time off your life. Yet another man, subdued by an officer’s knee on his neck using excessive force as he pleaded that he could not breath, has died. The festering wound for black People, and anyone who cares. is reopened each time this happens, and is pulverizing to the spirit and decimating to the soul. Having these heinous acts on video usually means nothing too, since the message from the top is clear, “ Dark” skinned folks lives do not matter. They matter to me… all .people do. Hence, I will stay the course and share some of the pain with you all. Black folks should not have to carry the weight of what is a national and historic sin alone any more . I will continue to bubble wrap myself in love, systemic approaches and action, equity work, and whatever it takes to stay the course. Another soul is screaming and we hear you call out for justice on the backs of all who died before you💜🌺🙏🏿
Rest In Peace but know we heard your soul screaming 🌺 these are real people who have families, friends and even strangers who care about them . They , and the multitudes who have been murdered and killed throughout history deserve your attention and action. White Supremacy and the legacy of it, and its proclivity to ensure people are afraid of and mortally over reactive to, those with darker skin has infiltrated every American Institution , community, individual and even people of color in how they see and Value themselves. It is like a huge oversized boil with the foulest stench and is spreading its infection throughout our bodies. We are about 400 years late , but it’s time to lance the boil , clean it and let the poison drain out of it. This is how we begin to heal💜 This is how we lay ground for change. I hope you do your part 🌺”

This is a professional service offered by Grounds For Clarity LLC and people come to us when they want a sounding board and are feeling trapped in their life with no way out except to deeply consider this question — Is there any point to my life anymore?
“Embracing the fear of being seen for who we are begins with us letting go of all the old ways we see ourselves.”
Thought Founder of Grounds For Clarity
These aren’t just words. At what cost is it to you to continue doing things, living life, operating in your relationships ACROSS THE BOARD the way you have been for the past X amount of days, weeks, months…years? Is the amount of apathy and anger and isolation from anyone really worth it? Is it worth it to go home after a day of work of “getting shit done” to come home and have your best friend be distraction to accompany your misery for the sake of not coming off “weak?” When is the last time you felt anything other than numbness and self-loathing only to wake up and lather, rinse and repeat? You no longer are bright-eyed even about your craft anymore. Be honest. Is your career worth your well-being?
You DESERVE a quality life and it is NEVER too late.
When we don’t get approval or acceptance from ourselves or people, we work hard to get it externally from: the zeroes in our salary, the amount of money in our bank account, the quantity of toys we have to play with, our level of alcoholism or bowls we have access to smoke to numb all the pain away. Self-loathing hurts. Your feelings are so hurt in fact all the energy you have left is to numb yourself.
Uncertain what left there is to do?
Why do you feel stuck?
Resisting — avoiding, ignoring, suppressing and downplaying feelings of apathy and anger — is only going to result in burnout, self-loathing and suffering. What else left is there? At least you have worked for what you have, right?
Because we all need acceptance and approval to feel like we belong, among people, the things we believe in, the wealth we accrue, the objects we collect, disintegrate in value to us and our quality of life boils down to isolation, disconnect with ourselves and an acceptance that this is just the way life is so may as well do whatever you want.
Even the greats — the role models in society: motivational speakers, inspirational figures, inventors, global economic giants — share what it is they accomplish because they get that no matter our individual progress, we are still one and are here on this planet together. Are you sharing what you have put your blood, sweat and tears into in the way you are proud of?
How can you reconnect with others, notwithstanding your career? Well, you cannot connect with others when you are burnt out. Of course, you are burnt out because you have just been existing for the past several decades of your life. As cliché as it sounds, it is true: You’ve got to focus on yourself inside–out.
What do you do now since you are stuck?
Recognition and an acceptance of what is no longer serving you that has been working well for you, up to this point.
What exactly does this mean? Raising your awareness? What is keeping you emotionally attracted to people, things, careers, roles and even relationships? Is this fragmenting what you wish for for your current identity? The way you’ve been operating has brought you to this place, to this post, right now. This is your opportunity to shift your paradigm and answer your questions.
