Sapphire and Diamonds

Sapphire and Diamonds Suzy Kassem

SAPPHIRE AND DIAMONDS

When I look up at Heaven,
I see the souls of those who died
Beaming down at me,
Wanting to scream: “I’m still alive!”,
Wishing to scribble across the sapphire sky –
Letters to their loved ones,
But a million dark oceans stand between us,
Between those who passed and the living,
Between those of us still stuck below,
And those who have crossed over the threshold of time –
Where what seems like eternity
Is really only a few minutes.
So you see, there is no reason to weep over the shining ones –
For even though the space that separates us is limitless,
The wall of time that divides us is only paper-thin.
And one day, we shall all reunite with them,
When our souls are released like fish
Back into the vast shimmering sea
To shine together like
Glittering diamonds.

Coming Forth Into the Light

Suzy Kassem poetry - COMING FORTH INTO THE LIGHT

COMING FORTH INTO THE LIGHT

I was born the day
I thought:
What is?
What was?
And
What if?

I was transformed the day
My ego shattered,
And all the superficial, material
Things that mattered
To me before,
Suddenly ceased
To matter.

I really came into being
The day I no longer cared about
What the world thought of me,
Only on my thoughts for
Changing the world.

The Gut is the Seat of All Feeling

If someone with a high level of authority were to ask me, “Suzy, how can we make people so incredibly stupid and apathetic, so that we can do whatever we want without scrutiny?” I would say, “Go for the gut. Pollute the gut. The gut is the seat of all feeling. If you pollute the gut, you corrupt the mind. If you corrupt their minds, their hearts will turn dark. And without light inside their hearts, they will be too blind to see their conscience.”

Attacking the gut not only cripples your immune system, but also destroys your sense of empathy, the ability to identify with other humans. Toxins such as fluoride found in drinking water, toothpaste, alcoholic beverages, and anti-depressants creates eczema in the gut. Bad bacteria in the gut creates neurological issues. Autism can be cured by detoxifying the bellies of young children. People who think that feelings come from the heart are wrong. The gut is where you feel the loss of a loved one first. It’s where you feel pain and a heavy bulk of your emotions. It’s the central base of your entire immune system. If your gut is loaded with negative bacteria, it affects your mind. Your heart is the seat of your conscience. If your mind is corrupted, it affects your conscience. The heart is the Sun. The gut is the Moon. The pineal gland is Neptune, and your brain and nervous system (5 senses) are Mercury. What affects the moon or sun affects the entire universe within. So, if you poison the gut, it affects your entire nervous system, your sense of reasoning, and your senses. 

Make sense?

The Ghost of a Village

The Ghost of a Village Suzy Kassem

THE GHOST OF A VILLAGE

She wanted to know why he destroyed their land,
The village’s only well,
The mines,
The rivers,
The forest,
Then the animals.

She wanted to know why he denied the villagers
A decent school,
A hospital,
Medicine,
And put up walls —
After taking down all their bridges.

She wanted to stare him deep in the eyes
And ask him why he had let so many villagers die.

So she stood at the gates of his golden palace
With her fingers curled into its iron bars,
And waited for him to come out.
And after hours turned into days,
And days turned into weeks,
She finally saw his crippled body being
Guided into a long black vehicle.

“WHY?” she shouted at him from a distance.
“WHY did you do all this?”

The white-haired man rolled down his window and
In a distasteful voice, replied back to her:

“You pitiful fool,
Do you think the world cared about me all these years?
I used to push a cart and sharpen knives,
And some days I would be forced to sleep hungry.
So as the years turned, and I became bitter and starved in more ways than one,
I decided to cut down trees,
And with the wood I built homes.
And after I sold those homes,
I bought land,
And then I built more homes and put them on the land.
Then I created a village and people came to live in it,
So I taxed everyone because the land was mine.
And because everyone lived under my security and authority,
Everyone had to pay for protection.
And with those taxes, I bought up all the surrounding land for cheap,
Because as my wealth grew, so did my power.
Then I sold everything and anything I could to the highest bidders.
And in the final days of my existence,
How dare you ask me: Why?
WHY NOT?
Do you not see the white hairs on my head
And the wrinkles on my neck?
Do you really think I care what happens to the world
After I die?”

“But those trees you cut weren’t yours!
And the rivers and streams you sold weren’t yours!
What made you think you could steal and sell what belongs to all the children of the earth?”

The old man snorted then replied:
“Nobody said anything, so I kept taking.
And the more I took and nobody said anything,
The larger things I’d take!
How silly of you to come crying
Only after everything is gone?
I couldn’t allow your people to be intelligent, united and strong,
For they would have thrown me into the well had they discovered I was
The big bad wolf!
So I had to keep them ignorant, divided and filled with fear —
Of everything beyond the village walls.”

“But do you not fear God?” the young woman cried out.

The white-haired man now answered flatly:
“God should fear me.
I’ve robbed and raped his people and lands,
And his followers are weak.”

And with that, he motioned for his driver to pull away.

The woman ran after the car and tried to scream,
But as soon as she opened her mouth,
Her voice turned into a howling wind.
It wailed, thrashed and moaned over the abandoned village,
Then disappeared into the hollow forest.

How to Change the System and the Minds of the Masses

Suzy Kassem How to Change the System and the Minds of the Masses

Let’s face it. We live in a command-based system, where we have been programmed since our earliest school years to become followers, not individuals. We have been conditioned to embrace teams, the herd, the masses, popular opinion — and to reject what is different, eccentric or stands alone. We are so programmed that all it takes for any business or authority to condition our minds to follow or buy something — is to simply repeat a statement more than three or four times until we repeat it ourselves and follow it as truth or the best trendiest thing. This is why Coke runs many commercials. Even though we all already know what Coke is and what it tastes like, we as humans have proven to be forgetful, so Coke must run several ads every quarter to remind us to drink it. And if you notice, ad campaigns are usually designed to run within a set duration and in a sequence where ads are guaranteed to be seen consecutively. This is called “programming” — the frequent repetition of words to condition us how to think, what to like, and who to follow.

For this reason, today, people who are given access to stand, speak, or perform on public platforms in front of the masses are not necessarily the most talented, but the easiest to control. Why? Because if any of them make just one simple statement about politics or the world, it could easily be repeated over and over again to affect the way people think, and create real social change. People like me who are outspoken and can detect flaws in the system will always be censored, denied influence, and prevented in many ways to grow. So how can WE create change, if those at the top are too afraid to say anything?

Again, to really change the world, we have to help people change the way they see things. Global betterment is a mental process, not one that requires huge sums of money or a high level of authority. Change has to be psychological. So if you want to see real change, stay persistent in educating humanity on how similar we all are than different. Use the conditioning process the system designed to control us — against them. Keep repeating statements that could affect the way people see things. Keep pointing out flaws in the system (your government, your state, your city, or any institution of choice). Point out corruption wherever you see it. If you don’t like the elections, call for new candidates. Don’t let the system pick a handful for you and force you to choose from only them. After all, this is a free country. We shouldn’t be given the illusion that we have a voice in the electoral process when in reality we never really did. Be pro-active, not passive. Use whatever skills you have to keep repeating statements to the mainstream. The power of resonance is very real. This is why there is now heavy censorship in the west. Censorship exists to protect corruption.

And lastly, do not only strive to be the change you want to see in the world, but also help all those around you see the world through commonalities of the heart so that they would want to change with you. This is how humanity will evolve to become better. This is how you can change the world. Stop being a senseless, apathetic follower, and choose to be a courageous leader instead. A leader with a voice. Be different. Be authentic. Be a lion of truth. Do not pick a team or a side, left or right, but always stand up for what is right against the wrong.

 Our freedoms are vanishing. If you do not get active to take a stand now, one of your children may elect to do so in the future, when it will be far more riskier — and much, much harder.

 

Truth always rises with Time.
