A MAN WITHOUT A SOUL

X

You’re a man without truth
A man of greed, a man of hate
A man of envy and doubt
You’re a man without a soul

All the money in the world
Will never fill that hole
You’re a man bought and sold
You’re a man without a soul

You bring nothing good to this world
Beyond a web of cheating and stealing
You hide behind your wall of lies
But it’s coming down
Yeah, it’s coming down

You’re a man without shame
Without dignity and grace
No way to save face
You’re a man without a soul

How do you think this story ends?
It’s not a matter of how
It’s just a matter of when
‘Cause it’s coming down
Yeah, it’s coming down

There’s a darkness all around you
To cover all you’re hiding
There’s no light in your eyes
You’re a man without a soul

Now the exits will be closing
A sad life will be exposed
No dealer and no deals
‘Cause you’re a man without a soul

How do you think this story ends?
It’s not a matter of how
It’s just a matter of when
‘Cause it’s coming down
Yeah, it’s coming down

Yeah, it’s coming down
Yeah, it’s coming down
Yeah, it’s coming down
Yeah, it’s coming down
Yeah, it’s coming down
Yeah, it’s coming down
Yeah, it’s coming down

GOOD SOULS

Keep me in the hands of saints
With the better angels
With the good souls

Keep me in the hands of saints
Keep me with the good souls
With the better angels

Keep me with all of those
Who help me find strength
When I’m feeling weak

Keep me with all of those
Who help me stay strong
And guide me along

Keep me with all the ones
Who have a hand at my back
When I’ve strayed from the path

Keep me
Yeah, keep me
Keep me

Keep me in the hands of saints
Keep me with the good souls
With the better angels

Keep me with all of those
Who help me find strength
When I’m feeling hopeless
Who guide me along
And help me stay strong and fearless

Keep me with all the ones
Who have a hand at my back
When I’ve strayed from the path
Who help me get home

Keep me
In the hands of saints
Keep me with the good souls
With the better angels

Keep me
Yeah, keep me
Yeah, keep me
Please keep me
Please, please, please keep me
Yeah, keep me
With the better angels
With the good souls
In the hands of saints

Keep me with the good ones
Who help me find strength
You guide me along

Keep me with the good souls
You have a hand at my back
When I’ve strayed from the path

Keep me with the better angels
Yeah, keep me with the good souls
In the hands of saints

Keep me with all the ones
Who help me to home
Who guide me along
When I’m feeling hopeless
Who help me stay fearless
And help me stay strong
Keep me with the good souls
Keep me with the good souls

Yeah, keep me, keep me

reFRAMEreFRAMING

X

The essential idea behind reFRAMING
is that a specific crystallized demographic / person’s
point-of-view depends
on the frame it is viewed in.

X

When the frame is shifted,

the meaning changes

and

thinking

and

behavior

often change along with it.

X

Another way to understand
the concept of reFRAMING
is to imagine looking through
the frame of a camera lens.

X

The picture seen through the lens
can be
changed and reshaped
to views / experiences
of

nascent truths 

and
expansive sensory possibilities

via

EXPLORING

  an unfixed exponential spectrum
of lenses from various
angles/distance/emotional/empirical/empathetic/spiritual

KALEIDOSCOPIC

vantage points.

X

By the willingness
of even slightly changing
what is seen in the camera,
the once
‘conditioned’ / ‘clung to’ / ‘conventional’ / ‘fixed’
cognitive and LIVED picture

IS

NOW

viewed
and
experienced
differently.

aNEW.

YES!

Please Stop ‘Checking In to See If I’m Okay’

Whatever you think I might be feeling because of the news right now,
it’s not new for me this week.
https://www.thecut.com/2020/06/i-dont-need-your-check-in-texts.html
About a week ago, I called a friend on the East Coast,
another black woman working in public radio,
to talk about something weird that was happening.
“Hey, are you getting a bunch of texts
from random white people asking if you’re okay?” I asked.
“What? No,” she said. “You are?”
I told her that I’d heard from a handful of people,
some of whom I hadn’t communicated with for months,
saying they couldn’t imagine the pain I must be feeling.
That they were here for me if I needed them.
I thought maybe this was just a thing people were doing in hyperwoke Oakland.
But then the next day,
that friend sent me a screenshot from one of her friends with the same language,
“Can’t imagine how black people are feeling. I’m so sorry.”
Another friend got a text from someone
she hadn’t spoken to in six years that noted
that she was “important” and called her “a queen.”
