On another subject, the other night I heard a well-known entertainer on TV stating that, over the years, she had been called a Negro, colored, and black – along with other names – and it made me ask the question “Why do we have to label everyone?” Just because they have a different skin color does that mean they are different? No, it does not, as we are all the same inside. Originally, a black person’s skin was the way it was to protect them from the sun in Africa. I would never have survived one day there as my skin burns at the first sight of the sun. From what I have read, the original black people were highly intelligent souls who, when brought to the USA, were expected to be like white people. However, I don’t think we were intelligent enough then to see that they came from a different country and, as such, were different! When they came, they became slaves and had to fight for their freedom.
It astonishes me to know that, even 60 years ago in the United States, if you were black you had to go to a different toilet than white people. We are all the same inside as I have said before. Our religious faith, belief system, color of our skin, whether we are large in size or very thin, have a larger nose than someone etc., should not warrant a label. We are what we are because of our genetic make-up, nothing more. When we finally go home to Spirit – our true home – we will not look like we do now. We will be without a body – just our soul – and as such can be as we want to be. If we come back to give a message to someone to let them know we have passed and are OK, we can appear as the person we were so that we can be recognized. We do this with thought, but we are not the same. The physical body is left behind to be buried or burned. We are pure consciousness. Our Self stays here also, and when that happens, we really get to see what the Self has done to us.
