Day 445: Nowhere

When I was young my mother used to tell me; “You ain’t going Nowhere until you do this that and the other, I would then rush around trying to complete all the task I was given, so I could get out of there and go explore the world, on my block, I mean anything beats being stuck... —

Day 444: Too Close For Comfort

“Oh shit that was close”, when putting ourselves in a compromising position of remembrance of a past place, time, situation or incident, where we find ourselves conforming to the possibility of bringing up old memories again and repeating the past in that moment of remembrance... —

Day 443: I Got a Lot On My Mind

I got a lot on my mind, what’s really going on, how time fly’s by, since the day I was born, into a world of sin where iniquity is a shape, where what I was taught to be real, ended up being fake. The side show, to keep me busy, the distractions of fear, the whispering of “swe... —

Day 442: Compliments (continued)

Previously on Compliments: in looking back at it, it all stemmed from the repeated Compliments I heavily received from this guy in the beginning, which opened my eyes to the true nature of what we have accepted and allowed Compliments to be/become, almost like telling someone... —

Day 441: Compliments

For what, is the question one should be asking, when one is quick to give a Compliment, I mean what are you really saying, when out of the blue; “I like the way you did this and that or the other”, but… doesn’t constitute a Compliment, “Girl you look good”, because I want you ... —

Day 440: Control Vs Communication

It seems that the only thing we say to one another these days is; “It’s either my way or the Highway”, meaning take a hike buddy, if you don’t do what I say, it’s my rules under my roof and if you don’t like it, get out, and if you’re down and out, you have no choice but to fo... —

Day 439: The Whole of Existence Is Watching

So there was this movie that came out a while back called the Truman Show, where the main actor (Jim Carey) was born in a world of his own, unaware that he was being watched, by the rest of the world, (which actually kicked off the whole reality show craze). Then he started to... —

Day 438: Anything can Trigger a Memory

For the longest, I’ve always wondered how I would have all these memories popping up what seems out of nowhere in my mind, I mean I would be standing there, walking somewhere or sitting, doing what I’m doing, then all of a sudden a sound or a random thought, a song or a pictur... —

Day 437: On the Ropes

In boxing when a guy is on the ropes, it may seem that the fight is about over and if the guy is not strong enough, he might give in/give up before being knocked down, what happens is the crowd that was rooting for him then turn against him and start looking for a knock, while... —

Day 436: You Can’t Breathe Your Way Out of a Thought

At times I find myself stuck in my mind, bringing up one thought after another, mostly being old memories, I mean anything New coming up would falls under my imagination, which is fascinating, because it shows that I’m not directing myself enough to create any New thought, whi... —

Day 435: You Never Know

What is assistance and support, most of the times we define assistance and support as something grand and a big thing, help in a major way, the call to duty when called upon, we also believe we only need assistance and support as a last resort and when it comes to assisting an... —

Day 434: Pick It Up

Oh what a mess we’ve made of this Earth, garbage dumps to garbage cans to garbage pail kid, to garages full of junk, a hoarder’s paradise, to things we buy and don’t really need, then throw it away in the street, in hope that no one sees us and the street sweeper comes and cle... —

Day 433: We The People

People come in all shapes forms, races, colors (if you want to call it that) creeds, with belief systems of all types, you say tomato, I say tom-a-to, the cup is half full, the cup is have empty, however we want to look at one another, we are People, we are the same, with diff... —

Day 432: Respect/Disrespect

Growing up I had a thing for being respected and/or disrespected, where I believed in order to be respected you have to give respect, but then found out that that’s not always necessarily the case, where of course it was a given to respect my elders, but how would I achieve re... —

Day 431: My Relationship to Patience

My relationship to patience has been a little shaky, being that I have become a patient to the mind, instead of standing adjacent to Self, Here and waiting the time it takes for things to be done, get done, everything is a process at hand, involving steps specifically needed f... —

Day 430: Unforeseen Moments

There’s a saying that goes; “When life gives you lemons, make lemonade” a proverbial phrase used to encourage optimism and a positive can do attitude in the face of adversity or misfortune, within this Lemons suggest sourness or difficulty in life, while lemonade is a sweet dr... —

Day 429: One Night

That’s all it takes to royally fuck your shit up, one night, one time of unawareness, giving way to the mind in chasing after an energy experience. Everyone “loves” a good party, I mean who can resist that, out having fun with your friends or family member, at a club, lounge o... —

Day 428: A Change of Heart

What makes a person drop everything they believe in and suddenly have a change of heart about what they knew? Times are ever so changing, this world, the Earth, Humanity as a whole and the information we receive, I mean we have the internet now, which makes a change of heart j... —

Day 427: Human Rage

The anxiety that’s builds when nothing is said, the long conversation that’s had in one’s head, I’ve been holding this in for way too long and now the urge is becoming way too strong. The tightening of chest constricted and encaged, at an unforeseen moment struck by Human Rage... —

Day 426: What Works for Me

Although I am still fairly new to this process, seeing that it’s a lifelong process, I have been walking my Journey to Life (Through writing Blogs) since the beginning of 2014, being that I’m the rush type, the hurry up and wait type, there are a few things that I have found t... —

Day 425: Fear Projections

“I brought you into this world and I can take you out, if you don’t do what I say”, is the statement said by a parent to keep their child in line. “Shut up before I punch you in the face”, is a cowardly statement said by one who doesn’t know how to communicate. “Don’t let a ... —

Day 424: Going Through What You Are Living In

Hell is a blunt way to put it. Is the hand that you were dealt really the hand that you were dealt or is it what you have become accustom to as a way/means of survival? No one really like what they do/have to do to keep a roof over their head and put food in their bellies, whe... —

Day 423: Self-Trust

Where there’s doubt, there’s no Self-Trust. There’s always these moments that arises at times throughout my process where I ask myself; “Ok what’s next”, “Am I doing this or that right”, the correct way, “Am I fucking up”, “Should I do this or that”, then become a bit indecisi... —

Day 422: Sneaky

What makes us so sneaky towards one another? What makes us rebellious to the plight of each other’s needs? Why do we feel the need to sneak around each other’s back, just to face them on the other side in regret of the lies told in spite of the truth being known of what we did... —

Day 421: Damned If You Do/Damned If You Don’t

It’s fascinating how laws are formulated to cancel each other out and/or as a catch 22, creating the saying, Damned if you do and Damned if you don’t, meaning if you have limited means of survival and you go about inflicting the only means of survival you know to feed yourself... —

Day 420: The Ability to Help Someone (Self-Forgiveness)

In my previous post I wrote about the ability to help someone, but what I didn’t do is write Self-Forgiveness for what I discovered within myself as far as my participation within having expectation of being helped and the reactions I experience whenever I received or didn’t r... —

Day 419: The Ability to Help Someone

What stops someone from helping their fellow man, a friend, a family member in need? At times through our lives no matter who you are or what you may or may not have, you will need help from someone and when the help comes, of course you’re exponentially grateful, but when the... —

Day 418: A Story to Tell

What interest us most is the stories we hear, what others are going through as in, guess what I did or what happened to me, I got a story to tell, let me tell you something, I got to tell somebody this, because this is unbelievable. What makes one person’s story better than th... —

Day 417: People Nowadays

What make you an expert on what people nowadays do, like, participate in and the way they behave. As a third party during a conversation we are quick to say; “Because people nowadays are like this, so that’s why, I’m the way I’m am”, blaming most of our mishaps on the children... —

Day 416: Posture

The alignment of one’s body erect from your head to your feet, shoulders back, chin tucked in looking straight ahead. For most being proud instead of awareness here and now, awareness of your physical body positioning while, standing, walking running or sitting, able to intake... —
