Order and Harmony: dysfunction and disorderly
Culture You don’t have to go too far to understand the forces that are driving a country to excel forward or stagnated backward. It is all there for you to see, either the order, harmony that exist or the chaos, dysfunctionality that you see; each resonates to their people and becomes the forces that are driving a country either forward or backward. This is what makes a country either a success or a failure. There are principles, universal truths that governed success; if applied to your country can also make it a success. This was the purpose for Colonization, what makes countries like England, France and Spain successful nations were supposed to be transferred to the new acquired lands in the new world. Many parts of the world were not yet developed, but because of Colonization, however barbaric a period, was responsible for many countries to advance forward. Today we are living in a new era of accelerated living, a country as a collective can take the quantum leap to catch up with countries that are far ahead. Individual in large numbers are able to emigrate, leaving their countries to immigrate to other countries and later return to their countries of origin with knowledge to affect changes. The principle of resonance, vibrational frequency still applied to people, individually and collectively. If large groups of people can raise their vibrational frequency to match those that are far ahead; they can change the collective. It is usually the number, the percentage of the population that accounts for the change in the collective; the greater the percentage, the greater the influence.

Tracing the problem:
Synergy_Convergence The past is the problem, not because it is solely the past, but also for what the past represents. There are elements in a culture that are universal, transferable to other nations; they will not change; they are God’s principles. For example the British culture of knighthood, where an individual is knighted for their services to the state, the king and the country; something greater than the individual that affects the collective. The principle of Honor, respect and service in the Samurai culture of Japan, though violent, but still honor and respect for law and order are universal truths and you can see that order and harmony reflected in Japanese Society. Other countries also reflect chaos, dysfunctional order; it is all in their songs, the tales that they recite to their kids; it is all there for you to see. There are competing elements in the Haitian Society that reflect this dysfunction, but also reflect something universal that you will also find in other cultures. Respect for elderly, for strangers, hospitality to strangers, all of which are universal principles that are transferable to other nations. But there is also a chaotic, dysfunctional order that you can see and also hear in the songs, the folk's tales; it is there for you to see. For example, there is a popular song that resonates to most Haitians; it is said; “Open the door for the devil to come in ”, people sing it, but don’t pay attention to the lyrics, the meaning of the words, but this song re-enforces the popular belief from foreigners that Haitians are worshipers of the devil. I often have to clarify the belief system of the Haitian people to people that are not familiar with the Haitian culture. The Haitian culture belongs to a humanity past, when human beings used to depend on intermediary spirits for guidance. Today science has replaced the need to depend on intermediary spirits for guidance, to gain knowledge of the plant world for medicine, etc. Today we have medical science, people using their cognitive ability, their intuitive capacity to solve problems. This is the direction that God wants the world to take. Jesus offers us a lifestyle that guarantees us an increase in our perception.

Seeing the Problem: First hand
Set_SAil The Haitian culture will not change on its own accord; it will continue to hold people behind, unless there is a conscious effort to affect change. In a matter that pertain to the collective; it has to be a Government Initiative that will set this type of change in motion in order to engage the collective. It is not going to change on its own without a collective effort. An institute for the advancement of color people had to be established in the United States to study the causes, the reasons why black African Americans were not advancing forward. I believe that something similar; must be established in the Haitian culture; an institution of some sort that will study the causes and offer solutions, help raise the standard of living for the Haitian people. This institution will bring light to the Haitian culture, not destroying it. The past has its place in a culture. The connection of the past has to be retraced and understood in order to allow the present to move on. The past does not die; it simply recedes in the fringes, just to resurface from time to time. In the case of Haiti; the past takes prominence over the present; this is the fundamental problem. The number of people or the percentage of people in the Haitian population who are holding on to the past have to be reduced.

No exemption:
Synergy_Convergence The United States is no difference, the same with Japan, China and other countries; the past had to be receded into the fringes in order to allow the present to flourish. The Japanese people; if they did not put the past in perspective; Japan would not be the country that it is today. China is following suite, they embrace everything that is new, in order to give their people a chance to move forward. I see this first hand, the tendency of the past in America to resurface; these are stiff-necked people. There are those in America who are holding on to the past and not making the effort to catch up with the rest of the country. They are crying out; God wants to help them moving forward, but they must not dwell in the past. They need representation, not to help them return to the past, but to find ways to help them move forward. Donald Trump is their leader; he represents them, he will take them forward, not into their past, but forward, toward their future.

I was in a super market recently; a white holder woman puts her shopping cart across the way, blocking traffic. A brown skin gentleman gently asked her to move her cart out of the way so that he can go through. But for no reason at all, she lashed at him, telling him to go back to his country. God has a sense of humor; I did not expect him to respond in such manner. He simply said to the woman; “I am a Native American; you have to go back to Europe, where you come from”, then he simply moved on without saying another word. I was compelled to tell the woman that she was wrong; she had no reason to attack the guy so viciously. She said to me: “what are you going to do about it; do you want to shoot me? ” I know that it is the past in her, resurging. I want no part of this dysfunctional behavior; I let her be and moved on. Had I not asked the woman why she did what she did to the guy; I would not know that she was dysfunctional, living in the reality of the past.

Dysfunctional: dealing with dysfunctional people
You will not know the level of their dysfunction or if there is even a dysfunction in their lives, until you want something from them. If they remain undisturbed, all is well. All is well, until you want something; the moment that you want to cross the threshold, all hell will let loose against you. You will not know that you are at war, until you want something from them. There is definitely a war been waged from within and from without. It is a dysfunctional world; I am amazed that they live well within that world. You will not know the level of their dysfunction, until you want to take them to the next level. The name "Papa Loco
", implies a dysfunction; a reflection of the Haitian culture. He is a master of Haitian art, in some way he represents the Haitian culture through art, painting, etc.
The barrel of corn still untouched; remained undisturbed”, meaning that the cat knows and the rat knows; each remained suspicious of each other. Neither one will venture, takes risk, while the grand prize remained untouched. This means that there is an unmet need; the possibility is there; the one who has the resources is there and the one with the need is there; neither can approach each other for fear. This Haitian proverb seems to explain it all for me. I am frustrated that I cannot reach people, whom I know can help me; help a cause, help their country, but they remain suspicious, shut me out for no rational reason except fear. They know what they know and I know what I know; yet we cannot meet in the middle to catch a reality.

God Reigned:
God is still God; He is seated on His throne and Jesus is sitting next to Him at His right hand, waiting on Him to put the enemies of Jesus, the enemies of humanity under Jesus’ feet. “Sit at My right hand, until I make your enemies your footstool” Jesus went to hell and got the key. “Open up ancient gates, Open up doors, and let the king of glory enter” He confronted the devil when the devil tempted Him at His weakest moment. The moment that you are in want; the enemy will appear. Jesus is waiting on God to deliver, so shall you. “The Lord is My shepherd and I shall not want ”, Be in want for nothing; you are waiting on God to deliver; “Cast all of your cares upon Him”, God said, so that we may be free of the influence of the devil. He will show up at an opportune time, at your weakest moment; your moment of need to tempt you.
