I propose an adventure.
I ask you to consider a journey with me to an event that holds true the same ethos, spirit and consciousness as the original Woodstock of 40years ago this summer.
In biblical times, the children of Israel had to wander aimlessly through the desert for 40 years to rid themselves of the generation of idolaters since the giving of the commandments at 'Sinai'.
Only then could the children of Israel pass into the land of milk and honey.
40 years have past since we witnessed the binding tie of unity at a pop gig in upstate New York.
For a few, it would bring forth a new dawn, but the world regressed, choking the ideals that constructed the age of brotherhood, and as such, all manner of evils befell it.
Greed, money worship, lusts for land, resources and labor have diminished the true potential of mankind.
However, in the spirit of a moment in time when the divisions between color, race, creed and abilities meant nothing, I put to you that a new gig should emerge.
Woodstock was a shout from the masses who wanted a consciousness revolution.
Tell me if we haven't set in motion the real thing for this age, this year and this summer.
A summer not only of love but of compassion.
I want Carlito and all those who will support this musical/artistic event to come forward.
With a world spiraling into chaos of all kinds, there's a man in Washington, voted in by the people who refused to stand down because of the weight of history.
Obama will support this cause for the same reason he decided to stand for president-because we need to come out of the wilderness yet again.
Set out in holy books and spoken about on platforms since the beginning of time, freedoms from racism, class structures and greed, this 'new dawn' now demands a new consciousness revolution.
We shall start by celebrating this 'beginning' with a concert.
Carlos, along with others who are not doing it just for the exposure and kudos, will join...and we will all be there.
Amen and shalom to you all.
