"Earth Was Meant for Joy" Mel reads Alice Walker

Mel reads Alice Walker...Taking a look at the inspiration of joy Alice Walker has planted throughout her work...

"What I think we miss is that understanding that this particular planet we are on, if you look closely and tend to it Earth was meant for Joy. As an artist, connect with that Joy and you will forever be fed by it.” — Alice Walker, Q&A/ ‘Beauty In Truth’ world premier at ‘Women Of the World’ Festival 2013, check out the talk Alice gave after the screening of a doc on her life.

Let our Joy be so triumphant that we rest in God and say Amen.  #Agape

“HELPED are those who are content to be themselves; they will never lack mystery in their lives and the joys of self-discovery will be constant.
HELPED are those who love the entire cosmos rather than their own tiny country, city, or farm, for to them will be shown the unbroken web of life and the meaning of infinity.HELPED are those who live in quietness, knowing neither brand name nor fad; they shall live every day as if in eternity, and each moment shall be as full as it is long.HELPED are those who love others unsplit off from their faults; to them will be given clarity of vision.HELPED are those who create anything at all, for they shall relive the thrill of their own conception, and realize an partnership in the creation of the Universe that keeps them responsible and cheerful.HELPED are those who love the Earth, their mother, and who willingly suffer that she may not die; in their grief over her pain they will weep rivers of blood, and in their joy in her lively response to love, they will converse with the trees.HELPED are those whose ever act is a prayer for harmony in the Universe, for they are the restorers of balance to our planet. To them will be given the insight that every good act done anywhere in the cosmos welcomes the life of an animal or a child.HELPED are those who risk themselves for others' sakes; to them will be given increasing opportunities for ever greater risks. Theirs will be a vision of the word in which no one's gift is despised or lost.HELPED are those who strive to give up their anger; their reward will be that in any confrontation their first thoughts will never be of violence or of war.HELPED are those whose every act is a prayer for peace; on them depends the future of the world.HELPED are those who forgive; their reward shall be forgiveness of every evil done to them. It will be in their power, therefore, to envision the new Earth.HELPED are those who are shown the existence of the Creator's magic in the Universe; they shall experience delight and astonishment without ceasing.HELPED are those who laugh with a pure heart; theirs will be the company of the jolly righteous.HELPED are those who love all the colors of all the human beings, as they love all the colors of the animals and plants; none of their children, nor any of their ancestors, nor any parts of themselves, shall be hidden from them.HELPED are those who love the lesbian, the gay, and the straight, as they love the sun, the moon, and the stars. None of their children, nor any of their ancestors, nor any parts of themselves, shall be hidden from them.HELPED are those who love the broken and the whole; none of their children, nor any of their ancestors, nor any parts of themselves, shall be hidden from them.HELPED are those who do not join mobs; theirs shall be the understanding that to attack in anger is to murder in confusion.HELPED are those who find the courage to do at least one small thing each day to help the existence of another--plant, animal, river, or human being. They shall be joined by a multitude of the timid.HELPED are those who lose their fear of death; theirs is the power to envision the future in a blade of grass.HELPED are those who love and actively support the diversity of life; they shall be secure in their differences.HELPED are those who KNOW.” ― Alice Walker

Mel excerpt --

Mastery of fear like everything on the emotional spectrum is
another tool to play, another sensation to exploit to your benefit. It isn’t
fearlessness it is fear embraced. It is fear ensconced and evaluated and played
for its essence and sustenance and energy to arrive at a new deepening
destination of truth into Love with joy.
I am one
who daydreams and imagines and explores. I contemplate and congratulate
discovery acquired through my curiosity.  I wonder and wonder and then magically wonders never cease. My
exploration has led me into worlds and worlds and worlds and new worlds yet again, each one revealing
something I never would have imagined.
I’m no longer the scared kid who kept needing to prove over
and over again that I was good enough. I am capable. I am okay. Knowing I AM free from the
non existent chain that counter intuitively is one of the most painful things I will ever have to do. The
chain in its nonexistence has the strongest hold over me. If the chain was
real. I would have been able to gnaw my way, struggle, wrangle, wriggle and
fight my way to freedom. The essence of the chain of nonexistence is you just
need to effortlessly and purposefully take one easy step and have it fall away.  I am
not what I was. I am whoever I want to be and I am me.
