TRAYVON MARTIN DID NOT DIE IN VAIN

Trayvon Martin is an explosion of light in our lives, so bright that he is illuminating our ways…  so that we can change them.

The physical life of this beautiful teenager ended on February 26, by someone who needed to feel powerful. How can it be that such atrocities are still happening, here in the 21st Century, with a police cover-up that defies all precedent?

These travesties cannot help but happen because that is the NATURE of this heartless system that we are stuck in. The time is 2012 – and it’s time to transform this impossibly imbalanced world into something that has love at its core, not hate.

2012 was never about the end of the world – but the end of the world as we know it – the end of the class system in which PEOPLE are classified, sorted, evaluated, labeled, and exploited according to how useful they are to the system! This cruel way of life keeps us so distracted and dumbed down that we are unable to learn from experience … unable to learn from our mistakes… So on it goes; history repeating and repeating and repeating itself.

But now there is REAL dialog going on in the United States about the REAL issue of our times – this ‘human race’ we’re all running, each confined to our own ethnic and economic lanes by flawed programming which tells us that one ‘type’ of human being is superior to another – and that those with ‘white’ skin are somehow privileged and therefore in control of the whole game. That is the basis of the ‘trickle-down’ theory which, obviously, does not work. Furthermore, there is a black man living in the white house, which was never part of the plan.

There will always be racism for as long as we continue to race – which is what competition is! We have reached a point in time – 2012 – at which we must stop competing against each other and start cooperating with each other instead.  Competition is the nature of capitalism, imperialism, classism, racism, sexism, agism and all the other discriminatory ‘isms’ that set people against each other. We judge ourselves and other people by outer appearance and the shallowest of considerations.

We are NOT the human race. We are humanity! We convince ourselves that this is life when, in fact, it is certain death. Being fully conscious of our constant ‘looping’ in history is the first step to breaking free into our real potential

Trayvon Martin did not die in vain. He is a catalyst for CHANGE, and his death is connected to every other area of inequity going on in the world, including the role of the police and their corporate allegiances; the judicial system, bullying at every level: the war on workers, all wars in fact, and especially the war on terror. If you listened to Trayvon’s screams, you will know what sheer terror sounds like.

Terror is the most heightened form of fear. “Going to war” on this emotion can only produce more fear, more terror. Fear needs to be soothed, not attacked. There is so much for us to learn about our emotions, which are essentially our feminine energy – our honesty – our WILL…. and we delude ourselves into believing that our wills are free!

The war on women is an extension of the war on terror. It is a war on the feminine energy that exists in men and women alike – our ability to feel and sense what’s happening rather than have the system tell us what’s happening.  Our masculine energy is our ability to think. This is our masculine/feminine electrical/magnetic makeup, and this is the target of what they call ‘the war for hearts and minds’. Total control of our senses.

The emotions of Trayvon’s father, Tracy Martin, and mother, Sybrina Fulton, are not controlled, but focused. Their feelings are so strong and raw right now that they are relentless  in pursuit of justice for their son, despite their burden of shock, grief and loss.

This is not just a black problem, a white problem, or a Hispanic, Asian, Sikh, Hindu, Jewish or Arab problem. This is a problem for humanity – at both the individual and collective levels. We are the only species on Earth that is constantly at war with itself, and we are at a point where our survival is at stake. But until we change on the inside, outer reality cannot help but stay the same. That’s how powerful we the people really are. We each have the ability to change the world from the inside out. From our hearts. It is the only way to go, because every change starts within. Thinking about it does not change things. You’ve got to really FEEL it – the anger, fear and grief along with the hope and inspiration.

“If we don’t fight hard enough for the things we
stand for, at some point we have to recognize
that we don’t really stand for them.”  
Paul Wellstone
 

Trayvon Martin did not die in vain. He has brought a dangerously divided nation together in a scenario where there is nothing to dispute. He has brought to light the terrifying fact that countless other people died in similar ways because someone judged them to be suspicious, inferior, up to no good, “fucking punks”, or “assholes”, (the latter descriptions are from Trayvon’s killer, the self appointed Neighborhood Watch “captain”, George Zimmerman.

We judge each other’s ‘worth’ because we live in a system in which such barbaric behavior is the ‘norm’. If it wasn’t the norm, it would not be happening with such frequency – or with the consistent outcome of no real investigation, and cold-blooded murderers going free.

We must continue to feel as deeply as we can – and express what we feel as spontaneously as we can… on the common-sense understanding that there is NEVER a need to hurt yourself or anyone else when honestly expressing what you feel. It all depends on what’s in your heart, love or hate.

But if we try to get rid of hate by bombarding it with more hate, that’s precisely what we’ll get – more hate! And we’ll end up hating ourselves for hating. However, just as love can sometimes turn to hate, hate can also turn to love. Hate must be understood, accepted and turned around because hate is love being channeled in the wrong direction. Hate is love in reverse.

Trayvon Martin did not die in vain. He has started the process of turning hate around.

Shine on Trayvon!

      Humans are born into bondage in this matrix-like system of slavery. Our will is enslaved by rules, regulations and laws that control us and we exist under mind control to keep us passive.

        With respect I believe we are born free. We are conditioned, yes, but our spirit is always free until we choose to compromise it. In context the spirit freely leaves the body upon death. I observe people compromising integrity for gain and out of fear. Freedom is the ultimate of self discipline I believe. We can think for ourselves and validate our senses. A president once said about war….we have only fear to fear…confront personal fear and say or do what needs to be said and done to change the world. It is easier to give up.

    Christine,

    Thank you for this post. How horrific this is, I want to share this young man set this up before his birth to help make significant changes, that is long over due! We look at past horrific events, one comes to mind, Polly Clasp. Not sure of the spelling. Look what happened in this unbelievable situation. Her father helped change laws. I see the light in this young man’s essence and it is clear this is what had to occur. We are in critical times that massive changes are at our doorstep.

    I send love and comfort to his family. Humanly, it’s pure sadness. Spiritually, it is a plan to help humanity.

    Blessings,

    Cynthia

    It is appalling racism exists, that some humans cannot look at another human with a sense of humanity. Bullies and racist …once secretly harboring anti-social behavior….are emboldened to expose themselves in public as in the killng of Trayvon. Trayvon was a minor; a grown man hated and killed a child. Americans protect their young against predators.

    It is not enough in my opinion to focus on the core of each one of us in order to create a new reality. It matters how people are treated. It matters also people who are mistreated face their fear of confrontation. If we as a people, a society, a nation, as humans are to rise above fear each must confront the fear within that holds us back from living free. Confront as if in a spiritual war fear within

    You are so right Christine. In the end we will all just end up hating ourselves for hating. You don’t see it at first, but it is where we all end up, all in the mistake notion of trying to love and protect ourselves, thinking that hate will do it. I won’t and never has. Hopefully Trayvon’s death will help teach us this.

    We were at part of this rally on 14th st.( we had to get home to something in the Bronx), but it made us smile…… that we were showing our support for this. We will rise up and change this corrupt, racist system. He certainly did not die for nothing. RIP.

    I was shown the latest info the other day.The fact is, things need to change, period! There’s no black or white or whatever color one wants to see and judge.If one was blind, color would not be an issue. Name calling will not change what happened. Both young men are human beings who have families who love them. And now they are both left with a very painful situation. Unless we come from a different mindset, there will be no PEACE. It all comes back to the same place. What kind of world do we want to live in?

    Thank you, Christine. <3 We have to keep pushing, marching, rallying and talking, talking, pushing until change is real. It is time. While color and bigotry were very much at play in Trayvon's tragic end, this is not an issue of color. It is an issue of humanity, of love, of holding each other up to our highest standards, and we can't do it if we stand apart. This child that we lost – and all the children we lose – they belong to all of us. There is no separation. While we have been practicing unity and sheltering ourselves from the toxic world, the world has continued as it does. Practice and example are no longer enough. We need to start shouting unity louder.

    Thank you so much for this thoughtful story about Trayvon Martin. A friend and I were talking the other day about how this type of murder happens often (often enough that we as a society ought to be apalled!), and yet there is something so special about this one boy that it has just captured the nation’s attention. I, too, believe that Trayvon Martin has not died in vain. I believe what has happened here, including the lies that the perpetrator’s (Zimmerman) family has been spreading about this dead child, will shed LIGHT on the hatred that is so deep in the hearts of many. I have a good, peaceful feeling that the TRUTH of that night will continue to unfold…and Trayvon Martin’s family will have the peace and justice they so deserve. This is no same old tragedy: this is a deep moment of truth for our nation and world.

    However, there is no evidence whatsoever that race had any part of this unfortunate event in itself. The 411 operator asked George what color the person was, and he said, “He looks black.” How is that racism? They said they didn’t need him to follow the person (Trayvon), and he stopped. This is evident in the change of breathing into the phone by George. Then he said he lost track of the person. Evidently he went back and near his truck is where the fight occurred, in which George had his head beat into the sidewalk and Trayvon ended up dead. It’s very unfortunate and hurtful, regretful, sorrowful for all parties. The only racism is on the side of those, like yourself, Christine, that want to find racism where there is none. Why do you show a picture of the sweet 12 year old, instead of the grown 17 year old man? Why do you feel only purposeful labeling and misunderstanding of George, who was trying to do right for his community, and was definitely NOT a racist?
