Our Mission
WAWA/WeAreWideAwake is my Public Service to America as a muckracker who has journeyed seven times to Israel Palestine since June 2005. WAWA is dedicated to confronting media and governments that shield the whole truth.

We who Are Wide Awake are compelled by the "fierce urgency of Now" [Rev MLK, Jr.] to raise awareness and promote the human dialogue about many of the crucial issues of our day: the state of our Union and in protection of democracy, what life is like under military occupation in Palestine, the Christian EXODUS from the Holy Land, and spirituality-from a Theologically Liberated Christian Anarchist POV.

"We're on a mission from God."
The Blues Brothers

"Observe good faith and justice towards all nations; cultivate peace and harmony with all...and passionate attachments for others, should be excluded; and that, in place of them, just and amicable feelings towards all should be cultivated. The nation which indulges towards another a habitual hatred or a habitual fondness is in some degree a slave...a passionate attachment of one nation for another produces a variety of evils."

March 28, 2009: Dali dreams, John of the X and what does it mean to be a Christian?
Salvador Dalí painted a dream that was inspired by a drawing done by the 16th century Spanish mystic poet, Carmelite brother, John of the Cross.

 [View and
Read more... ]


Christ of Saint John of the Cross, by Salvador Dalí depicts Jesus Christ attached to a cross, as if he is holding it up as it hovers in the darkness of the universe from the perspective of God looking down upon a body of water, a boat and fishermen cradled by mountains, sky and clouds with radiating triangles and circles that Dali placed with precision onto canvas with oil.

Dali's dream in paint is poles apart from Mel Gibson's movie; there is no blood, no nails, no crown of thorns-it is a healed Jesus who is holding up the cross.

In his dream, Dali saw Christ in the extreme angles and composition of Christ as based on triangles and circles.

 
The first triangle-and trinity of lines- is formed by Christ's arms with a circle formed by his downward looking head in relation to his feet and the triangle is repeated again at the end of the cross that radiates all the light in the painting.

 
Dalí explained," In the first place, in 1950, I had a 'cosmic dream' in which I saw this image in color and which in my dream represented the 'nucleus of the atom.' This nucleus later took on a metaphysical sense; I considered it 'the very unity of the universe,' the Christ!" [1]

 


I did NOT see Mel Gibson's Passion, for I knew I would not be able to stomach the violence, and the Jesus I know is not suffering physically, but is suffering a broken heart over what those who claim that he is Lord, do and do not do in his name.

 

Jesus was NEVER a Christian; the term 'Christian' was not even coined until the days of Paul, about 3 decades after Jesus: AKA: The Prince of Peace walked the earth and taught that it is the peacemakers who are the children of God, NOT those that bomb, occupy or torture other ones!

 

The ancients understood that God spoke to them in their dreams and visions. The ancients told those stories around the camp fires and those stories grew by the flame enkindled in the hearer's hearts; transforming them into story tellers too.

During the season of Lent-the days between Ash Wednesday and Easter Sunday- Christians are called to self reflection and repenting-understood as a turning away from or as a change of course which seeks God first.

In the gospel [good news] told in Mark 3: 31-35, the mother of Jesus' and his brothers arrived at the house where he was teaching.

Standing outside, they sent word to Jesus and called him out. The crowd around Jesus told him, "Your mother, sisters and brothers are outside asking for you."

Jesus replied, "I am here with my mother, sisters and brothers. For whoever does the will of God is my brother, sister and mother."-Mark 3: 31-35

"What does God require? He has told you o'man! Be just, be merciful, and walk humbly with your Lord." -Micah 6:8

Being just means correct, true, accurate, right and fair. Merciful is to have, feel and show compassion, that sense of viscerally feeling the pain of another and being moved to help. Being humble is knowing yourself; the good and the bad, for both cut through every human heart.

All Christians-from the most fundamental to those left of the progressives-are connected to the other as a sister and brother in the mystical Body of Christ. It is a dysfunctional family in the USA and past time to liberate Jesus from the bondage of institutional patriarchy for no church owns Jesus and no religion owns God.

 

"Where there is no vision, the people perish."-Proverbs 29:18 - King James Version


 2,000 years ago The Cross had NO symbolic religious meaning and was not a piece of jewelry.

When Jesus said: "Pick up your cross and follow me" everyone THEN understood he was issuing a POLITICAL statement, for the main roads into Jerusalem were lined with crucified agitators, rebels, dissidents and any who disturbed the status quo of the Roman Empire and Military Occupying Forces.

Jesus, while never a Christian, was a social, justice, radical revolutionary Palestinian devout Jewish road warrior who rose up against the corrupt Temple authorities and challenged their job security by teaching the people they did NOT need to pay the priests for ritual baths or sacrificing livestock to be OK with God; for God LOVED them just as they were:

Sinners, poor, diseased, outcasts, widows, orphans, refugees and prisoners all living under the Roman Empire and Military Occupation.

What got Jesus crucified was disturbing the status quo of the Roman Empire and Occupying Forces by teaching the subversive concept that God preferred the humble sinner, the poor, diseased, outcasts, widows, orphans, refugees and prisoners all living under the Roman Empire and Military Occupation above the elite and arrogant.

The early followers and lovers of Jesus were called members of THE WAY-being THE WAY he taught one should be and that his sisters and brothers were those that DID the will of the Father.

"What does God require? He has told you o'man! Be just, be merciful, and walk humbly with your Lord." -Micah 6:8

 

 

I had a dream three days after that day that we call 9/11:

I was standing in a field with a few dozen other people. I knew them in the moment, but cannot recall a face now, but we all seemed to know each other and were I thought, erecting a concert stage.

Everything we worked with was white and we were encircled by trees and people were streaming out from all sides. The stage was the center point of the circle. 

All of sudden, I am levitated into the sky and into utter darkness. I had never had a dream of flying before, but I knew no fear, even while engulfed in opaque silence that seemed to last for hours.

All of a sudden, in my dream, I see, Jesus coming towards me. He is attached to a large X, like a CROSSROADS sign at a rail road track crossing.

Jesus provided all the light and as I gravitated towards him-he never looks at me-his head was turned towards the right and I was swiftly flipped to the left and onto the back of the X where I clung and again, without any fear.

I try to see Jesus' face, but he keeps it turned from me.

We rotate around the earth; concentric circles of east, west, north, south, and all points in between. We never leave the blackness, but the earth is visible to me, illuminated by the light that radiates out of Jesus. We circle and twirl until a moment that seemed to last no longer than the blink of an eye and then, I am back on the ground and the stage is complete.

A multitude of people have now gathered and I am to the very left of the stage. I look up into the sky, point and proclaim:

"LOOK, LOOK, LOOK on high, it is Pure Being on a Crossroad sign."

 
Jesus implants the X upon the white stage, and only then, do I realize the stage is an altar.

The silence was deafening. I am on the very left of the crowd and very close to the altar. Jesus has his head turned all the way to the right, the furthermost point away from me.

He never moves his lips, but I hear him say, -over and over-as he looks into each individual heart: "You called me Lord, Lord, but I never knew you."

In my dream, it seemed like hours of silence interspersed with only those ten words and an ever increasing crescendo of wailing and sobbing, gnashing of teeth; for those who had been so sure they were in-were the ones being left out and left behind.

Just as Jesus gets to me, and I realize I am going to finally look into his eyes, I WAKE UP, NOT believing I was only dreaming...

 

 

"Stand at the CROSSROADS and look. Ask for the ancient paths where the road is best. Walk in it and you will live in peace."-Jeremiah 6:16

"Says Yahweh: I will put my law within them, and I will write it on their hearts; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people." -Jeremiah 31:33

The phrases: "It is Yahweh who speaks" and "Thus sayeth Yahweh" spoken by the prophet Jeremiah, placed him in the same club as Jesus; claiming to be God or speaking for God-blasphemy to the religious and signs of insanity to society, friends and family.

 

In the eyes of the world, Jesus is the least influential person in human history-because nobody wants to do what he really said:

 

Love God first, love all your neighbors, forgive to be forgiven, serve others and don't expect any rewards in the material world.

 

Jesus was not always enthusiastic about doing what he discerned God was calling him to. Jesus knew his "hour" while alone in the silence, for his followers had abandoned him and his friends had fallen asleep.

The Paradoxical Commandments
by Dr. Kent M. Keith

People are illogical, unreasonable, and self-centered.
Love them anyway.

If you do good, people will accuse you of selfish ulterior motives.
Do good anyway.

If you are successful, you win false friends and true enemies.
Succeed anyway.

The good you do today will be forgotten tomorrow.
Do good anyway.

Honesty and frankness make you vulnerable.
Be honest and frank anyway.

The biggest men and women with the biggest ideas can be shot down by the smallest men and women with the smallest minds.
Think big anyway.

People favor underdogs but follow only top dogs.
Fight for a few underdogs anyway.

What you spend years building may be destroyed overnight.
Build anyway.

People really need help but may attack you if you do help them.
Help people anyway.

Give the world the best you have and you'll get kicked in the teeth.
Give the world the best you have anyway.

© 1968, 2001 Kent M. Keith

" In the final analysis, it is between you and God.  It was never between you and them anyway."-Mother Teresa


“You cannot talk like sane men around a peace table while the atomic bomb itself is ticking beneath it. Do not treat the atomic bomb as a weapon of offense; do not treat it as an instrument of the police. Treat the bomb for what it is: the visible insanity of a civilization that has ceased...to obey the laws of life.”- Lewis Mumford, 1946



The age of warrior kings and of warrior presidents has passed. The nuclear age calls for a different kind of leadership....a leadership of intellect, judgment, tolerance and rationality, a leadership committed to human values, to world peace, and to the improvement of the human condition. The attributes upon which we must draw are the human attributes of compassion and common sense, of intellect and creative imagination, and of empathy and understanding between cultures."  - William Fulbright



“Any nation that year after year continues to raise the Defense budget while cutting social programs to the neediest is a nation approaching spiritual death.” - Rev. MLK
Establishment of Israel
"On the day of the termination of the British mandate and on the strength of the United Nations General Assembly declare The State of Israel will be based on freedom, justice and peace as envisaged by the prophets of Israel: it will ensure complete equality of social and political rights to all its inhabitants irrespective of religion it will guarantee freedom of religion [and] conscience and will be faithful to the Charter of the United Nations." - May 14, 1948. The Declaration of the Establishment of Israel
