Baring The Soul

By Peter Josie
By Peter Josie

Six weeks or so ago my ‘Confessions for the Soul’ in The VOICE was meant to convey spiritual growth, reconciliation, and the revelation of a place where one confronts inertia, doubt, indiscipline, and impatience. Shortly thereafter I ran into someone whose known scholarship and humility are worthy of emulation. During a brief dialogue, he raised a matter which stunned me, thinking that the incident had long been buried and forgotten. I was therefore taken aback by the disclosure of hurt which I had inflicted on him and others, many years ago. I was totally unprepared for such an unsolicited disclosure. The man’s sadness was palpable. It discomforted me.

If you, dear reader, guessed that the topic of the above disclosure was of a political nature, you are correct. But what on God’s green earth I wondered, did I do to solicit so much pain in that individual? The man had obviously held me in high esteem and I became more and more concerned that I had unknowingly hurt his feelings, and that of others. When he finally disclosed that the political incident had happened about twenty-five years ago. I became even more concerned.

After we had gone our separate ways it occurred to me that people are sent in our path for a reason. It’s left to us to determine these reasons and ferret out hidden messages as best we could. Such unplanned encounters are often intended to serve a larger purpose. Not long after this reflection I came upon the following by James Baldwin: ‘I understand why people hold-on to hate, because once the hate is gone they’ll be forced to deal with pain’. I was now forced to ponder whether such pain was a poisoned chalice of retribution, or whether it merely represented heartfelt regret. Would such a feeling purify the soul exposing love and beauty or was there another purpose to it? Would an apology of sorts or an explanation help appease another injured or grieving heart?

The year was 1992 and the venue was the Laborie Boy’s School. After a winner had emerged at the party conference, Lawson Calderon and I approached the stage determined to congratulate the winner against whom we had both contested the leadership of the party. To our great dismay and surprise “boos and jeers” rang out as if to suggest that we were no longer welcome. It was an insult and a rebuff which we did not deserve, nor took lightly. I later realized I had nursed that pain far too long. I was more deeply hurt than I admitted. Many in that conference room had joined the party after me. Many may have been drawn to join after former Forum colleagues and I did. The Forum’s work had energized that lackluster party molding it into a new and dynamic organization, fit for government again. The St. Lucia Labour Party had then become a force to reckon with. My colleagues and I displayed our preparedness for political office by our informative speeches on the Castries Market steps which we had renamed ‘the University of the People.’

To add insult to injury, it was later drawn to my attention that I was officially kicked out of the party by the new kids on the block who were selected on the party executive after Laborie in 1992. These upstarts were obviously fearful or uncomfortable with my tough, no non-sense progressive politics and my repeated references to the rules of the party. I reminded them of the duty of a political leader after the loss of a general election. These made some persons uncomfortable with my presence in the party. After devious plots I was kicked out. I decided that I would retaliate with a kick of my own. A simple ‘sayonara’ would not do for this warrior. I had to show that I was not to be trifled with.

When the right moment finally presented itself at a public meeting of the UWP at Vieux Fort, I grabbed my old red T-shirt, rolled it into a football, and the kick resonated far and wide. Its echo is still disturbing twenty-five years later, as the early reported conversation above proved. I was reminded of that incident by one that I did not associate with politics; a more private than public person. Perhaps it was the shock of his disclosure and the pain I felt in his voice which has forced me to re-examine the past and pen this article.

I had no idea that so many would have taken that kick of an unfeeling red T-shirt which belonged to me, so badly and that, that hurt would have lasted such a long time. To those who were (and still are), offended by that kick of my old red T-shirt, I truly regret your hurt. I am aware the huge difficulty of letting go after so much hate, held for so long. I experienced that difficulty myself. I finally let it go after three or four years and reading Peter, bk. 1, ch. 3 v. 8&9. My behaviour was revenge which I should have left to God. It ought not to be taken personally.

Be assured that the pain will end when we decide to let go, forgive and move on with our lives. Once this is accepted we can move ahead without the hate and the pain. Let us therefore move forward together as one people under God, as we nurture love and cast hate aside. I hope and pray that this article better explains the past incident and that this truth will help mend the pain and replace it with love – the greatest gift and commandment – this May Day 2016.

The good Lord knows our island needs more love, more prayers and less hate if we are to progress. I therefore pray that the love and positive role which George Odlum, myself and others played in the resuscitation of the trade union movement in Saint Lucia after the demise of early pioneers such as George Charles, Oleo Jn. Baptiste, Charles Augustin, Francis ‘Puck’Carasco, Burke King and others, be remembered at this and other May Day (Labour Day) observances.

    judas don’t worry there is something call Kama ?

  2. Josie:

    Why are you allowed to roam the country consuming all that Whiskey, and until now the effects are so conspicuous that the police have not had you committed to La Toc. This failed attempt by yourself to glorify yourself is pitiful, and shows how low you and Allen Chastanet are willing to stoop to fool the Lucian Public.

    The only reason you were involved with anything Odlum was building, was for your selfish motives which have failed you and left you in the lurch. Now you have made yourself subservient to the nincompoop Allen Chastanet, with hopes you will be given a white woman like you sidekick Rick John Wayne, and get Odlum’s Job at the U.N.

    You pray to a Naked White man nailed to a cross post, pray to dead people, invoke George Charles, and Oleo to make you win the upcoming elections, although there is not a hope that you will see snow in the Square on New Year’s Day. I will give you the recipe to invoke a high ranking member of Lucifer’s Cabinet named Lucifuge Rofocale the Chief Minster over the Western Hemisphere.

    There are people who invoke an “Efrit” of Lucifer named Lucifuge Rofocale seeking wealth and political power – I will tell you how to invoke this minster of Lucifer since you desire to purchase the temporary wealth in this life, at the price of eternal damnation. This invocation can result in your violent death Josie, so you are forewarned.

    THE INVOCATION OF LUCIFUGE ROFOCALE A RANKING MINSTER OF LUCIFER.

    –TAKE THE HEAD OF A DEAD MAN WHOSE AGE IS LESS THAN FORTY YEARS OLD.

    –GO INTO THE FOREST, AND FIND AN AREA OF VIRGIN SOIL KNOWN TO NO ONE.

    AS THE MOON ENTERS ITS WANING CYCLE, DIG A HOLE USING THE HORN OF A BLACK GOAT SACRIFICED FOR THIS PURPOSE, USING THE BLOOD FROM THE GOAT TO MARK A CIRCLE CONTAINING A TRIANGLE WITH ITS BLOOD. THE HOLE OF DIMENSIONS 2FT X 1FT X 1FT = 2 FEET CUBED MUST BE PLACED OUTSIDE THE EASTERN SECTION OF THE CIRCLE.

    INSERT SEVEN BLACK BEANS( CAFFE JAB ) INTO THE ORIFICES OF THE HEAD – ONE IN EACH EYE; ONE IN EACH NOSTRIL; ONE IN EACH EAR; AND ONE IN THE MOUTH.

    BURY THE HEAD FACE-UP FACING THE EAST. FOR THE NEXT NINE DAYS, BEFORE THE APPEARANCE OF LIGHT OF DAWN, GO TO THE SITE AND SPRINKLE THE HEAD WITH PURE BRANDY. REMEMBER NO ONE MUST KNOW OF YOUR DOINGS.

    ALWAYS STAND WITHIN THE SAFETY OF THE CIRCLE WHILE PERFORMING THIS RITUAL TO AVOID A VIOLENT DEATH.

    ON THE DAWN OF THE NINTH DAY LUCIFUGE ROFOCALE WILL APPEAR – DO NOT STEP OUTSIDE THE INTERNAL TRIANGLE OR YOU WILL MEET A VIOLENT END.

    AFTER RECITING CERTAIN INVOCATIONS AND INCANTATIONS LUCIFUGE WILL EXECUTE YOUR REQUEST – FOR MONEY, WOMEN, POWER, AND PRIME MINISTER.

    DO NOT LEAVE THE CIRCLE UNTIL THE SUN HAS RISEN!

    AT THIS TIME YOU WILL FIND THE CAFFE JAB HAS BECOME SPROUTS,

    PLACE THREE OF THE LITTLE PLANTS UNDER THE TONGUE AND COLLECT THE OTHER FOUR AND PLACE THEM INTO A BLACK SILK BAG.
    I will teach you the incantations and words to contract with Lucifuge Rofocale soon, when you are rich and can travel anywhere in the world with a command using the sprouts of invisibility.

    GOOD?

    Preparation – you need:

    red or black light for the ritual chamber (atmospheric)
    5 chalices
    5 bowls or incense burners
    charcoal

Put paper on a cookie sheet, heat oven to low bake, bake for five minutes, let cool. place one at a time in melted black wax using a tweezer until fully covered. On one side of each place the sigil of Eurynomous or Baalberith. Store in a dark, dry box.

  3. California Scraps Rick John Wayne’s Day Due To His Racist Past

    http://newsone.com/3423185/california-scraps-john-wayne-day-due-to-his-racist-past/

    People are awakening to the Truth as propagated by the Voice Of Saint Lucia, and today the Great State of California has discarded the magnification of the Caucasian Evil Racist Rick John Wayne, that the Lucian Negro Rick John Wayne has prided himself to be named after, when Rick John Wayne performing for audiences of English homosexuals as a naked Stripper thought the name Carasco was not “WHITE” enough and named himself after this Racist White Supremacist, known for his perverted sexual practices and killing people of Color.

    Today we are burdened with these brain damaged negro and his Second, Black Pete Josie as they continue to express their hatred for Black people, encouraging them to become white by bleaching their skin and to forget our History. Take a look at John Wayne call a Lucian “A BLACK THING”

    READ THIS.
    in 1971 interview with play boy john wayne made this disparagingly remark about blacks !.
    I believe in white supremacy until the blacks are educated to a point of responsibility i don’t believe in giving authority and position of leadership and judgment to irresponsible people.
    So now u know y he took the name wayne?

  7. DR. OPTICAL:

    This is what we have been saying all along. Rick John Wayne is a hater of Black Chocolate people; the Negro Shabin just wish he could bleach his skin and look Pale like like the sexual pervert Arnold Schwarzenegger who was screwing the babysitter with his wife in the next room – that was Rick’s boyfriend for the Stripshows in England. Rick John Wayne thought if he changed his name from Carasco he would be in Hollywood but was totally rejected, so now he is sexually impotent and castrated, he has developed some perverted relationship with Black Pete Josie.

    Kenny Anthony is the one who “De-garje” Rick John Wayne, and then Castrated both Wayne and Black Pete Josie, that’s why Kenny is also an MD in Urology which most people don’t know. Even though Rick John Wayne was given a White woman from the Southern USA, he is completely virility-Zero, resulting in hot flashes of uncontrollable anger.

  8. SON OF MAN

  10. Peetar
    The seductive allure of that ritual on virgin soil -so eloquently presented to you by the SOM- ought to hasten your retreat…..n’est pas?
    The revelation of your SADO_MASOCHISTIC traits (rolled the red labor shirt and kicked it like a football}
    -now that is a new confirmation , to your litany of borderline psychotic predispositions.
    There is an old adage in the military “salute the rank, not the person”.
    You knew that SLP was/is the party of the people . Instead of scorning the men you blame for the jettison of your career in SLP-
    you regressed to that rear abnormal infantile peculiarity of SMEARING FECES as glorious art on canvas.
    You smeared caca on the walls of the PARTY OF THE PEOPLE!
    -and you ask for social redemption while this caca smearing disorder persists at the core of your psychotic profile.
    Proof of your pervasive Bipolarity.

  11. Many people have been saying that Rick Wayne is mentally challenged, but I have to ask you scholars, why did Wayne name himself after the Racists John Wayne? I think DASSAULT MIRAGE have been trying to explain the mental health of the likes of Wayne and Josie, but I never thought much of it not believing that was the case until I read this article of how he hated Blacks.

    Is it possible that Rick wants to be white because he is sick, DASSAULT MIRAGE?????

    I DON’T KNOW IF ANYONE CAN HELP HIM? Or is he a lost case.

  12. Allow me to quote Lawrence Tyler · Utility Broker/Energy Consultant at Consumer Choice Marketing

    “F-ck John Wayne. My dad was a big fan of his along with a lot of Blacks. I remember when he made these remarks My dad was very disappointed. My mom hated John Wayne for his racist statements.”

    So there’s your answer. Rick John Wayne is a sick Negro, with a serious inferiority complex problem. A crazy Negro going around the world telling Caucasians, “I’m white! I’m Roman Catholic and even have a white woman, because Black people ain’t nothing but black blobs.” While the other Negro sidekick, Black Pete Josie, calls Black Lucians, “Blacker and Uglier, who should not be allowed to participate in Carnival Queen Beauty Pageants” because they are too ‘Black and uglier’.
