The only way you get to know a man is when pressure is applied like diamonds they become such by time and applied pressure that acts upon their matrix. The same as people, my mother would say, “Put heat under a monkey ant whatever is in a monkey a monkey would defecate it out.” This statement is a truth so when you want to know the true heart of a person and take the mask off just watch them when they are heated for they will show themselves in light that is unbelievable. I became a minister before becoming a doctor of metaphysics. I truly followed a road that was placed upon me from birth. Now when they say ministers are made from their mistakes did not lie to you it is a profound truth. As I said before I did not know myself until the fire hit me. Only when the fire hit that seemed to stay continuous patient endurable stamina and determinate and will by God proved that I was the little girl I believed I am for we keep the child inside. I can remember using the restroom as a child I didn’t like being uncomfortable when ridding my body of toxins so because I could not bear clothing I would sit on the toilet feeling quite strange and felt the need to watch the corner as if something or someone was there with me. I laugh about this because it has been sometime since I thought about that need. But, though I have gone through some insane life experiences my heart is still filled with love. I love to know that I can love when most of my life has been touched with heinous acts and hateful beings. I read their hearts and pray for a reprieve for their vile nature. In your minds you are thinking what is Pamela talking about? What could make her say that her life is any different than any of ours? There is a possibility not. But this story is not about me? It is about getting to know the hearts of men. One night in my sleep, I lay dreaming and in this particular dream this ground that looked as if a bomb had hit a building and it lay in rubbles. Around the area was dust with light smoke coming from the rubble on the ground. There seem to be some foundation in certain places here and there. But as my spirit moved through the dream because I could not see body not even mine. I looked to the right peripheral of my eyes and there was a wall that stood high enough to be a movie screen about eight feet wide and eight feet tall. It was a man with dark skin and mostly white hair with very little black left. It was like wool and parted on the side. His eyes were strong and serious and his mouth was moving but I could not here his words. At the end of the dream I finally could hear him say, “Get to know the hearts of men.” I wakened puzzled, the figure looked like an important figure I had learned about as a young student in school. I finally, the name came to me it was Frederick Douglass. I logged into my computer and looked up his name and there were three photos and there was the one photo I saw him come to me at that age and dressed in those particular clothes a black suit with a string tie. It stimulated my curiosity that he would say such a thing. It came to me that I should read his life story and then his works. Wow, did I read an interesting work of writing. I understood how he became the person that he was and perhaps had he not would we be here today. He definitely played an important part of history. He was born into slavery, lost his mother at an early age. Lived in a fearful climate, watched atrocities done to his aunt that was repulsive and had to be terrorizing for his age and there was nothing he could do about it but make sure it did not happen to him. He escaped slavery went to a foreign country where the people loved and respected him and bought his freedom. He returned to America for his conscious would not allow him to leave his people that were in slavery in such a state that he must return to aid the abolishinist call. He became a writer and published his works. He became an abolitionist and married a Caucasian woman who was a leader of women’s rights. A very eye opener for me and to also learn he wrote a book entitled, “Black Hearts of Men” that two other people are listed as writing this work on the site I read. If you get the chance, I would in reading many books written say that reading his work was simple to read but captivating is the least of such a strong and God filled man. Reading that book I looked at the hearts of men not from a child anymore, but as a grown woman who grew stronger in love with humanity and our responsibility as human beings to be our brother’s keeper as written in the Bible, a sure sign of love that is the light of God. When reading the Bible remembering the stories became more important than memorizing chapter and verse, not saying all is a good thing for it is a very good thing. I will say to all get to know the hearts of men and remember when we are under pressure the truth comes out and we must do what we have to but remember to keep love in our hearts. Now knowing metaphysics and learning from so many authors and scholars’ life experience and lessons are teachers within us all. Being linked to an earth and Heaven above give us opportunities good or bad to share with other people. Remember every time you intermingle with another there is a lesson to be learned. Remember when you go into a grocery store how the clerks or check out person treat you. When you go to medical treatment how the doctors office or the hospital treats you. When you work for an employee do they see you as a machine or a human being? When you meet with the law or they lawful and respectful a man of honor and integrity proud to wear the badge with what it stands for protection and safety haven for the community. When a teacher teach do they teach their subject with knowledge love and compassion. When people with skill do their job with the character to do their best no matter what job skill they do. If they are congressmen and judges do they work for the people are a few self interests. For we can measure what kind of world we live in and it is our obligation of Godly people to remember the creator of this earth and what kind of world we should make it to be with all the natural beauty around us, get to know the hearts of men and walk. Gor we are co-creators with the Creator and we can make this world our Eden or we can continue to attempt to duplicate what we perceive to be the gates of Hell. What I have noticed is that we are beautiful co-creators but we have not been able to duplicate anything better than the Omnipotent creator for it knows our hearts.
