RELIGION WITHOUT REVELATION (Article) - 11/21/2013 1:45:44 PM|
I used to be religious but I've come to see my past as a sincere attempt to believe what those around me indicated I "Should believe."
I could not in fact believe honestly in what religion offered.
Revelation to me is discovery, insight, and an honest admission when one is dealing with facts or not.
It may occur to me for instance that it not constructive to attempt to form relationships with deceased historical figures.
It is painfully obvious that one is only compelled to do this with Jesus, but also that those who make the most claims about such a relationship most deeply violate the essence of what is reported as his teachings.
It would seem that those who "Believe in" Jesus do not "Believe Jesus." Or at least do not agree with him.
I believe in thankfulness, compassion, forgiveness, and honesty.
I find those things in my heart and offer them.
I appreciate the wonder all around me without any motivation to define it, capture it, or try to sell it.
Appreciate and participate is really all I can do. I see enough that I don't have to pretend to believe in what I do not see.
RELIGION WITHOUT REVELATION (Article) - 11/21/2013 8:29:07 AM
I don't need any revelations. The news is filled enough with them already. I do enjoy understanding new concepts and directions for life. Without challenges, life would be quite uninteresting. I also can't conjure up any gods that I would find useful for any reason. That's why I am truly atheist, meaning that I don't need any gods to define my view of life.

NAME: ETHOS AND IDENTITY (Article) - 5/14/2013 7:10:52 AM
An informative and entertaining article.
While I am of predominantly Germanic origin, my name is English and Hull is derived from shipbuilders from the city of that name in England. My name is often confused with Hall when I speak it, because Hall is much more common.
I've been quite interested in some African-American names and their origins. For example: Spearman, King, and Freeman. I believe these names were chosen in order to create a good name for all who follow. There are very few Caucasian Americans with the name Washington, but many African-Americans with that name, as well as Jefferson.
GOOD OLD DAYS (Article) - 4/8/2013 7:10:39 AM
You are right for debunking some of these clichéd ideas. I learned in psychology class that our memories are selective. That we tend to remember good things about our lives in the past and slowly forget the bad things. “The good old days,” were never as good as we perceive them from today. I remember the bullies in our neighborhood who ran unchecked, the windows open in winter, freezing in bed, the dirty snow from coal-fired furnaces, and the constant childhood diseases and fear of getting polio. I started picking beans in the fields at nine years old and don't remember it as being a hardship at all, although today it would be considered brutal child labor.
As for the, “Greatest Generation,” it is true that many Americans of every racial and ethnic background died overseas during World War II and at least two of my uncles suffered the results of the psychological effects of having been in battle that ruined their later lives. My father benefited from being at Teamster and making a good living driving truck, enabling him to lead a life of leisure after he reached 62 and my mother was 57. Like most of his generation, my father was quite materialistic and left my mother with practically nothing to live on after he died. She is supported partly by public assistance today. You are right, the greatest generation was the generation that followed and insisted upon civil rights for everyone and the breaking down of old barriers preventing the country from going forward. Why people choose materialistic values over humanitarian values, I've never been able to comprehend.
I too, have been guilty of looking over the fence at greener pastures. However, I tended to choose the rocky road for my path to the future and have been told that I was wrong more times than I care (including my father) to think about. Fortunately, in spite of 50 years of paralysis, I stayed gainfully employed, saved money, and got some lucky breaks that makes my side of the fence much better from this perspective that all those others.
Once again, yours is a great article that should be read by everyone because of the truth conveyed.

SYNCHRONICITY (Article) - 8/10/2012 3:05:48 AM
Well said indeed!
My life and worldly events have been tied synchronistically time after time after time and time again. I didn't consciously seek these connections but there have been so many that I could not help but become aware of these connections. I came to realize that these synchronistic and serendipitous events were signs - signs that lead me to a more profound truth.

OBAMA DESERVES THE NOBEL PEACE PRIZE (Article) - 10/14/2009 10:24:11 AM
Although I feel completely the opposite regarding Obama and the Nobel Prize than you, your article is very well written and informative.
One question, though.
But my statement first: Yes, if this were a white man with Obama's lack of success, I would still feel that he did not deserve the prize and would be as incensed over it as I am with Obama.
Now I ask you the same question: If this were a white man, would you still write the article you wrote. I really do not think so.
Please understand, I write this review with the greatest of respect to you and the way you presented your thoughts on the matter.
BRING 'EM ON! - TERRORISTS TO U.S. PRISONS (Article) - 6/14/2009 3:18:24 PM
The cheapest way to deal with the world's global terrorists is to build a maximum security fence around Washington, District of Criminals. That way they can't get out and continue to kill people around the globe.
AN EYEWITNESS TO THE BARACK OBAMA'S INAUGURATION (Article) - 2/19/2009 3:46:29 PM
Thank you for this eyewitness account of America-Obama's big day, Jay! I can appreciate the fact that you had to be there and that you
also needed to fill-in the blanks at home by watching your TV!
Let us all pray that the Obama team will be given a fair shot at
mending this country's many, many deep problems. I am annoyed that
the critics are already at his heels less than a month into the job.
He may be tough enough to take it, but speaking for myself, I am
totally fed-up with all the negative energy that pollutes this
nation-- and I believe that comes from all corners!
Be well & be happy,

POSITIVE THOUGHTS AND GOOD FEELINGS (Article) - 8/1/2008 12:03:18 PM
Good informative write. That many people would abide by it would be a happier world. I try to get my thoughts to positive, especially when feeling depressed. Positive thoughts never hurt anyone and may take you to better places than you are now. Being positive is not always easy but trying to put positive instead of negative is surely worth trying in your life. I agree with this write wholeheartedly.

PRAYING TO NOBODY OR NO THING (Article) - 8/1/2008 11:58:35 AM
A great prayer to pray. Asking for what you want God to do for you is simply asking and praying to him. Sometimes he answer my prayers before I end them too. I can feel him working within me at times when I pray as if he were right there with me. I do pray lots and feel I need to. A adored this write throughout. It is very informative.

GOD, COUNTRY AND YOU (Article) - 7/25/2007 5:52:28 PM
Well, I do not believe in killing over the control of other people's lives. For example, I live with a virtual stranger and have his children. He should not suffer death if a virtual stranger is all he seeks in life. He should be recognized for what he is, and the law should stop seeking to kill over "marriage" laws. People abuse the state of marriage to save their own rears.

MANDELA: THE LEADER PAR EXCELLENCE (Poetry) - 12/9/2013 7:31:49 PM
I commend you on such a well-written document on Mr. Mandela. This is
a very interesting tribute about his life. Some of the things that you wrote about I was completely unaware of. Thanks for this enlightening and wonderful tribute to Mr. Mandela, he was a great man, had lots of wisdom. integrity and intelligent. He helped his people and also changed the lives of so many. He is gone but will never be forgotten. He left his legend to live on in History. Thanks God Bless.
MANDELA: THE LEADER PAR EXCELLENCE (Poetry) - 12/7/2013 12:20:22 PM
I know this should be an article and not a poem, but it will reach more readers here.
You have written a wonderful tribute and outlined a few things that most people do not know. I did not know that President Reagan and the others in Congress that you pointed out were on the wrong side of history when it comes to apartheid. Apartheid was a cruel and inhuman way of life for too long in much of South Africa. It needed to end. Apartheid ended badly in several countries in South Africa, but not in South Africa itself, largely due to the heroic efforts of Nelson Mandela.
In 1979, while I was an associate professor at Atlanta University, I attended a rally at Little Five Points. The occasion was a rally supporting the release of Nelson Mandela, for some reason a person I had not heard of at that particular time, but became acutely aware of after that. You are right, if it wasn't for all the people like those I met in that rally, history might have been much different and Mandela may not have had an opportunity to shine.
Many in Congress are on the wrong side of history right now. Most of the world is aware of the right side and has granted a peace prize to our president for his intuition into the problems we face. If nothing is done to change the situation violent conflict may erupt in the future. Surely individuals as courageous and insightful as Nelson Mandela will rise to the occasion if that occasion arises.
Thanks for showing us the way.

TECHNIQUES TO COPE WITH IRRELEVANT RHETORIC (Poetry) - 9/26/2013 12:05:04 PM
You're absolutely right. When those commercials come on I started meditating about something else, and viola!, they're gone.
As far as rhetorical e-mails… The delete key works just fine. And when it comes to those unwanted telephone calls… Hanging up works every time.
A great article about a poem… I think.

You have definitely struck a chord, Uriah, It could be said that poetry is the opposite of irrelevant rhetoric. It seeks only beauty and truth. My antidote to the profane stuff on tv is to hit the "mute" button. You have given us new ways to drown out the noise. Many thanks.

BRACKETING YOUR THINKING AND FOCUSING (Poetry) - 9/25/2013 9:14:18 AM
Your article on focus is quite interesting. I go by what Peter Drucker advised… We need to allow large chunks of time to accomplish great things, and, in order to accomplish something large, we must break it down into small steps and take one step at a time until we've accomplished what we set out to do.
Multitasking is the exact opposite of focusing on a single task. The result of multitasking is usually poor performance and delay rather than accomplishment.
BULLSHIT (Poetry) - 9/18/2013 12:38:51 PM
I'm surprised no one has responded to your hilarious, but true, description of bullshit. You did forget one thing and that is once one has achieved the highest learning, i.e., a PhD he or she is now qualified to, “pile it higher and deeper.”
I've not known any excrement to be “fragrant.” Unless you are referring to that fine smell emitting from Frankfart's book on the subject. But then I would be flagrantly lying, wouldn't I?

TOMORROW IS NOT PROMISED (Poetry) - 7/10/2013 5:18:48 AM
I have no comment other than the simple fact that, barring a celestial accident of unknown origin, the Earth will rotate around the sun exactly as it has every day for over 4,000,000,000 years tomorrow, and all tomorrow's thereafter. There will be slight shifts in this rotation that will require people interested in keeping time to adjust the calendar a bit to compensate for the shifts in rotation.
As far as individuals are concerned, some will face hardship tomorrow and even death, while others will experience joy and progress, just as it has been throughout human existence.

RIGHT VS. RIGHT DILEMMA: SPIRIT MEDIATION (Poetry) - 5/1/2013 12:53:20 PM
Your article brings up some very interesting thoughts for discussion. I totally misread the title thusly:
I was thinking “right wing” versus right. I have often wondered while people with the facts will steer towards the right wing in their thinking rather than what is right. One of the problems is that the right wing is not conservative. Right-wing behavior tends to be expensive, outrageous, and greedy… all all characteristics that are far from prudent or conservative.
Going back to your premise, I agree, when choosing between two rights, it's always best to let your inner intuition guide you in your choice. Like the right wing, one right may be a snake in the grass.

THE FIGHT OF A LIFETIME (Poetry) - 4/23/2013 10:37:10 AM
Such a powerful, persuasive truthful call to action for many, and a call to continued action for others.
Fighting the good fight keeps us true,as you so eloquently stated,to who we are; the alternative to that is "being someone else". It was Emerson who said: "Imitation is suicide." I wholeheartedly agree with him.
Thank you for sharing this encouraging, thought provoking message. Continued success-

Race Matters but Grace Matters More (Poetry) - 3/12/2013 8:26:33 AM
You have presented an interesting concept in Grace. I can only speak from my experience--primarily one of curiosity, not grace.
I have always been curious and that led to higher education and study. My study led me to Darwin and the origin of species. While Homo sapiens is one species, there are many varieties of us, primarily created by the environments we have lived in for a very long period of time (thousands of years and generations). For those living in the tropics, skin becomes darker than those living in temperate climates. Those with the lightest skin and and blue eyes lived closest to the Arctic regions. Skin color then becomes a survival attribute and not an intellectual one. Surviving in an hunting and gathering environment creates intelligence because only the intelligent survive the constant state of flux that hunting and gathering requires. Few modern day people could survive hunting and gathering--a few still do--and they are highly intelligent in spite of often being considered ignorant and primitive.
Therefore, I do not see race as a problem for me, only individual behavior. I admire and abhor the behavior of individuals depending upon the color of their character, not the color of their skin (Martin Luther King deserves credit for pointing that out), their nationality, their religion, their political party, or their perceived strengths and weaknesses. Thus, I am free from categorizing people and all the turmoil it causes. I take you for who you are and don't believe that there is some superior force out there telling me what I should believe. And I believe that you, Uriah J. Fields, have done a great service for our country and are a great man that I am pleased to have communion with here on Authors' Den.

LONGEVITY OR NOT? (5 Haiku) (Poetry) - 2/20/2013 7:12:27 AM
I agree. Life's a gift, why waste it. My grandmother, in her seventies, became a big fan of grandma Moses. I know she corresponded with her, but I don't know if she acquired any of grandma Moses's paintings. Because we have a branch of the family that is Moses, grandma said that we were related to her. If grandma had any of her work, my uncle Ed, now 92 and still quite active, has it, because he was the one who collected all of her belongings when grandma died.

I THINK! DAMNIT WHAT DO YOU KNOW? (Poetry) - 11/16/2012 8:39:36 AM
So many bloggers, pundits, and prognosticators with very strong beliefs that color their thoughts and sometimes not only make them unbelievable but downright dangerous.
I'm with you. If everyone looked at the factual matters instead of their beliefs, we would all progress more quickly and not be so decisive in everything we do.

Well said, Uriah. They hit him with everything including the kitchen sink, and he's still standing tall. Obama has more strength, character, and courage than the entire right wing combined--and they hate him for it.
OBAMA IS STILL THE ONE (Poetry) - 11/13/2012 8:22:29 AM
A wonderful song honoring a wonderful man. We are and Obama-nation once again, and I'm grateful that the rich zealots did not get their way and sink us into further poverty with their archaic ideas of survival of the financially fittest.
PEACE OF SOUL IS MINE TODAY (Poetry) - 11/7/2012 12:18:57 PM

B E T H A N K F U L (Poetry) - 11/3/2012 7:16:43 AM
I am thankful that I have this life I'm living and that sanity will prevail and we will have four more years of gradual recovery from our economic downturn. In thankful that when I leave this life that will be it and there will be no other tempting place out there to yearn for.
GRANDPA BENJAMIN (Poetry) - 10/27/2012 10:25:46 AM
I am reminded of Alex Haley and his journey to find his roots. I was fortunate to meet the man once and found him to be open, gentle, and humorous. Like you, he was shaped by his aunts who sat on the porch and told stories of his ancestors.
Nothing Is Between Us, Everything Is For Us (Poetry) - 10/2/2012 8:10:17 AM
I like the reference to “the eternal now” because we do not have any eternity out there to get it right. We must love each other right now, eternally.
Nothing Is Between Us, Everything Is For Us (Poetry) - 10/2/2012 6:51:42 AM
Its in the giving that things happen for the good! Very different read, we don't know what tomorrow holds and living for the giving brings forth fruit!
IT'S AIN'T ABOUT NOTHING (Poetry) - 9/14/2012 4:51:52 PM

THE BARACK OBAMA ANTHEM (Poetry) - 9/3/2012 5:14:44 AM
I am singing your song. Barack Obama has done no wrong. Only backward thinking people would come along and face the future strong.
The answer my friend, is blowing in the wind, and the winds of change are upon us. For those that do not heed the wind, will have their house of cards blown down.
IT'S AIN'T ABOUT NOTHING (Poetry) - 8/31/2012 11:21:48 AM
Pseudo-authorities abound and are growing by the pound. Did you ever notice that most of them are rather fat cats. Bullshit is good for one thing, fertilizing the garden.
I like your rant and your observation that “it ain't about nothing.”
THE GARDEN: IT WAS, IT IS, IT CAN BE (Poetry) - 8/27/2012 11:22:15 AM
Yes, the earth is our garden of Eden and we have been stewards to it., We haven't been very good and it is time for us to pay attention before our garden is gone and we have nothing left to fall back on.
SOME CALL IT ET CETERA; I CALL IT GOD (Poetry) - 8/24/2012 7:17:15 AM
If God is so easy understand, why is so much being said over and over and written to try to justify that God exists, etc? Because humans, especially young humans at their questioning age, are susceptible to indoctrination by repetition. Once they understand by hearing it over and over again, they believe, simply because they no longer think for themselves and let someone else do their thinking for them.
They become enslaved to God and have to keep justifying over and over why for the rest of their lives because it is the only way they can overcome their fear of the unknown––most likely their pending death. We all die, so I don't spend a lot of time worrying about it and whether or not I'm going to heaven or hell because they don't exist except in books like the Bible and Dante's Inferno, etc.
WE WERE POOR BUT DIDN'T KNOW IT (Poetry) - 8/10/2012 9:58:16 AM
Wise words. That saying is reserved for those who have escaped like I have. For those that remain poor and powerless, ignorance may take over their lives for lack of positive reinforcement.
COLOR ME LOVE (Poetry) - 8/3/2012 6:04:06 AM
Yes love is all in all. Beautifully penned.
COLOR ME LOVE (Poetry) - 7/31/2012 9:05:27 AM
Love is a very powerful emotion that everyone should use when everything can. Fear is another powerful emotion that is necessary for our survival in an ever creating dangerous world. Unnatural fear an unnatural love are not of any help and should be avoided.
PERMISSIVE RELATING (Poetry) - 7/26/2012 11:41:41 AM
I had permissive parents who gave me responsibility for my own actions early in life. We lived in a bad neighborhood, and by ten years of age I knew right from wrong and how to avoid the trap so many young people in the neighborhood fell into. The most troubled are those parents who give their children no slack to learn right and wrong and dictating everything… leading to rebellion eventually.

OVERWORK (Poetry) - 7/12/2012 4:23:08 PM
Powerful message Uriah,and it is so appropo for such a time as this.
Sobering to think how much of our energy is spent accumulating things that we do not have the time to savor.I agree; they certainly won't go with us.
Thank you for putting it all in perspective.

BICAMERAL ME: AUTHENTICITY AND ORIGINALITY (Poetry) - 6/8/2012 8:08:56 AM
Great advice offered with great wisdom. As an “outsider” by nature of my disability, I have always stayed true to my nature even though I have been chastised mightily by friend and foe alike for my views. I'm most comfortable with that.
My Letter to an Opponent of Gay Marriage (Poetry) - 6/1/2012 11:29:14 AM
Hey, you stole my definition! I can see that it's incomplete. We notice that there are a lot of pundits, or so-called experts, out there pontificating without a license or even the knowledge of the subjects they pro port to be experts in. Guys like Rush and Beck come to mind. Pompous balloons of hot air.
OVERWORK (Poetry) - 5/27/2012 7:19:21 AM
Very wise words. Unlike others, I have always paced myself for the long run. I've seen so many burn themselves out by trying to do everything and be everything only to lose their health and life. I hope you reach a lot of young people with this message.

IT'S IN THE DNA, ADAM'S AND EVE'S (Poetry) - 5/20/2012 10:31:32 AM
I agree that heredity plays a large part in our behavior. However, it comes from our ancestors and goes back to a source that is prehuman. The story of Cain and Abel is a myth used by the Jews to help control their flock of believers, sheeple all.
FREE AT LAST: PRESCRIPTIONS FOR BLACK EQUITY (Poetry) - 5/12/2012 1:20:36 PM
It's going to be a long, uphill climb. But we'll all get to that mountain top someday. The world is too diverse and opportunity too great, for people to be passed by.
A YOU AND ME CELEBRATION (Poetry) - 5/6/2012 7:10:10 AM
Yes, but let's not celebrate too much. Seven billion souls on the earth is too much and we can't save them all until we stop producing them at such a rapid rate. Everyone suffers in our excess.

GRACE IS NOT ENOUGH (Poetry) - 2/21/2012 12:04:14 PM
You have certainly stirred up some deeply rooted feelings with this one. Whenever anyone hears the song "Amazing Grace", it cannot help but touch their hearts and souls..To me, I feel that we all have a destiny, and within that journey, grace, humility, ethics, beliefs, inspirations, meditations, angels, god, higher power, strength of character, endurance, the will to be alive, the will to be a better person, I could go on and on, it all plays into how and what happens to our souls and that my friend goes a long way...
Much peace, love and light,
I WILL ALWAYS LOVE YOU TOO (Poetry) - 2/20/2012 7:22:20 AM
Amen, she will be missed by all. That song I will always love you, was probably her very best musical acheivements...My little daughter at the time (she is now 28) I believe she was about 4 or 5, and she would sing that song in the back seat of my car and would hit those notes...I knew that Whitney was a big influence in her life, she is now a singer/guitarist in her own band...See Whitney touched many lives in a very positive way...
Thanks Uriah for this tribute to a beautiful soul...
Peace, love and light,

CONSCIOUSNESS OF SCARCITY (Poetry) - 11/2/2011 3:50:09 PM
lexicon luxury is wealth: this poem wants not for words
CONSCIOUSNESS OF SCARCITY (Poetry) - 11/1/2011 11:37:53 AM
An interesting article. I fully agree with everything that you said. The problem we have right now is that we have a representative democracy because the elite that wrote the Constitution believed that the ordinary man could not function without good leadership from the wealthy (educated) landowning status quo.
In today's world, the educated leadership stand aside, while those that are greedy seek political office because they know they will develop networks and produce favors that will lead to more wealth. The powers that be have decided that winning elections requires vast amounts of money so that candidates can shake the hands of every constituent [that donates] and get their word out.
The Internet changes all that. Entourages, cars planes and trains do not have to be purchased, along with expensive television advertising when inexpensive Internet sites can be used to spread the word. Like what is happening in the Arab world, it is time we moved to a pure democracy where the people are heard and we all vote on the Internet like we do our banking and trust it just fine. All we need now is a Congress, and Administration, with the courage to step up and change the Constitution so that we have a true democracy rather than a corrupt representative one.
As for scarcity, we all need to cut back or we are going to soil our nest forever. That's another fallacy we have: that the economy must grow, and grow, and grow, based on consumption so that we stress the earth to its absolute limits.

DAILY MERCIES (Poetry) - 10/2/2011 10:31:17 AM
URIAH, HOW GRATEFUL TO ALMIGHTY GOD THAT 'BOTH' MERCY AND GRACE WERE PURCHASED FOR ME ON CALVARY. GRACE IS GETTING WHAT WE DON'T DESERVE AND MERCY IS NOT GETTING WHAT WE VERY WELL DESERVE. I TOO THANK GOD FOR HIS DAILY MERCIES AND FOR THE FACT THAT WHEN HE LOOKS AT ME, HE FIRST SEES THE BLOOD OF JESUS AND THEN ME. SO THEN, ME - OF MYSELF, I AM NOT WORTHY OF GOD'S MERCY AND GRACE 'B U T' BECAUSE OF CALVARY, I AM. THANKS FOR SHARING. LOVE, BLESSINGS AND FAITH...

I am grateful to read this and can really relate.
I much prefer to be guided by my feelings- yet so often those around me need some other reason for actions. Live and let live flows naturally to me- yet in order to keep the peace I must so often yield to some proven method- as if all of life is following a GPS.
A GPS will never put you on the road less traveled.
Where do you feel like going? How would you like to get there?

I was right with you until ............. "Your kingdom come on earth as it is in Heaven." Leaving our just a few words changes the meaning. "Your kingdom come. Thy will be done, on earth as it is in Heaven." Following God's will should not be omitted. None of these 'imaginings' can come about without 'Thy will be done.'
BUT, you point is well taken and it would be wonderful, heavenly even, to live is such a world here on earth.

THE GRATITUDE ATTITUDE DIVIDEND (Poetry) - 12/11/2009 3:40:02 AM
If everybody would learn and take what you have express in your poem,this world would be such a great place to live.The problem with today's world is that we get so caught up in technology and we are too narcissistic.We need to be more grateful and courteous human beings.In the past,a few or several women would not say "thank you" when I hold the doors or say ladies first before entering a public place.If there is any reason why women cant find a good man in this world,it is because of the fact that they have their noses so far up their behinds.They wouldnt know what a good man is if their fathers were standing in front of them.
Its a serious issue in this world and I am glad you wrote a poem about it.People are so caught up in negativity that we forget the littliest things that matter in this world and we also forget to appreciate kindness where ever it is.Great piece.take care
THE GRATITUDE ATTITUDE DIVIDEND (Poetry) - 12/10/2009 8:28:25 AM

For example, say "Thank you" to the person who opens a door for you to enter or exit." This is wonderful advise. We are attempting to teach this to our children in Elementary School. Thank you for this.

I have always tried to BE THANKFUL and GRATEFUL to God for even the smallest things in life. A flower, a rainbow, a butterfly, for my sight, my steps, my breath. I am so very grateful for all my blessings big and small. Excellent poem, Uriah!
