C A Y E N N E

My outlook is an introverted version,

Observing from afar,

Searching for the perfect movement,

Certain moments have converted my perception,

Intercepted by my adept way of accepting life for what it is,

Regardless of fleeting feelings which intermittently flee. . . . .

Logic dominates,

And I’ve accommodated to it,

Because logical reasoning is a Hot 🔥 Commodity,

Like a spicy seasoning, Cayenne.

Ay te cay con el Cayenne,

hace que te calles,

sazon de verdades pa’ los que aguanten.

It’s essential to adapt a bit but don’t forget your identity,

Nor where you’re bred,

But be free from prior deceptions,

Fallacious ideologies may have been laced in by your parents’ mistakes,

Who may be new souls,

so new they never even knew souls exist.

Old souls are bold like the dry peppers you unfold,

then crush into a powerful powder,

Cayenne couldn’t be any louder,

Than any fight instigating shouter,

Hotter than a steaming shower,

To those who mistake meekness for weakness,

Cayenne hace que se callen,

Can’t handle the heat of the truth.

There’s always a next lifetime to flavor up your spice nice.

Can We Truly Master One Thing?

You know how the saying goes, that if you are “a jack of all trades you’re a master of none.”

Basically, either you focus all your time and energy on mastering one thing at a time, or you learn how to do various skills with just enough experience to get you by.

My question then comes…

Can we truly just master one thing?

Think about it. Knowledge is infinite. There’s a lot we have yet to learn, and that still leaves us with plenty of information waiting to be discovered. How far does the rabbit hole go for every subject?

And we’re only talking about ONE subject.

If we haven’t gotten ALL the knowledge of ONE subject, can you imagine the vast knowledge of the multitude of subjects?

It would take lifetimes.

So it seems that for as long as we reside in this physical plane of existence on the Earth, we will technically always be the “Jack or Jill of all trades” or “a master of none” because everything we learn is a work in progress no matter how much expertise we think we have, it’s not the ultimate. There’s no end to what we can acquire.

The moment we began to believe that we’ve completely MASTERED something, is the moment we set limitations on our inquisitive mind, we slow down our appetite to learn, and we close off any new information that comes our way.

Not to mention pridefulness may get the best of us. Preventing us from expanding our horizons. Humility is key to growth. The wisest people know that they know nothing at all. Here’s an interesting article that breaks down what Socrates meant by his quote “I know that I know nothing.”

A Socrates Meme

Then there’s also an African proverb:

Image from Google.

Humble hearts create wise minds, whereas arrogance breeds foolishness.

See, when you remain humble you are open to new opportunities to learn and gain eye-opening perceptions. You never shut down the doors for new truckloads of information to stock up your mind with. Of course, you want to let it simmer in and marinate for some time before refilling the mind with a new batch of knowledge. You don’t want to get information overload where you are so overwhelmed by vast information that you don’t even want to think anymore. You cannot come to a final decision. So you end up skipping the simmering part: the part where you let your brain soak it all in.

Information overload can be best described in the Spongebob SquarePants show, the episode where Squidward was trying to impress his rival Squilliam with his fake fancy restaurant: the part where Spongebob was made to study the entire book about “how to master fine dining in 20 minutes” and when Spongebob finished reading he basically exclaimed (in summation), “I FEEL LIKE MY BRAIN’S ABOUT TO EXPLODE!!!” If you want to watch a short clip click here, laugh a little, and you’ll see what I mean!

Meme from me.me

You cannot force your mind to absorb too much, too soon. Knowledge is refreshing and learning should be an enjoyable experience, not a migraine-prone activity. So it goes back to the question: can we truly master one thing?

I think not.

However, we can attain as much knowledge as we can, and use it to our best ability. But do not shut down the doors, you don’t want to prevent your mind from aggregating more insight. Be humble and never stop learning, plus no one likes a know-it-all!

Keep Record of Your Dreams

Dreams can range from a replay of events from the previous day, a concoction of settings and characters throughout your life, or Dreams can be sacred messages meant for you to take heed to.

Sometimes that dream can be more than just a dream.

I’ve always have quite vivid dreams for as long as I could remember dreaming. They would be so astounding that I eventually began to write them down since I was a teenager. And to this day I’m still writing them down.

You may ask but why? Why must I keep record of my dreams? After all they’re ‘just dreams?’

See, that’s where many people fall into. They undermine their own capabilites to receive such messages. Dreams have always been sacred. This isn’t new knowledge, in fact it is ancient. For instance, Ancient Egypt had a high regard for dream symbolism. So much so that Pharaoh accepted Joseph, a Hebrew from the bloodline of Abraham, with open arms due to his gift of dream interpretation.

Indeed, dreams have always been sacred since the beginning of time. But it seems like most of the world has forgotton, or are unaware of the power behind having some kind of foresight or knowledge that would benefit us.

Why You Must Write your Dreams Down

I don’t necessarily write down every single dream; only the ones of great significance and symbolism. Especially, if it includes a serious matter, if it involves people I know in the waking world, or simply if the message is potent. That way I can keep the dream on file, in case I receive additional dreams, or life events that may confirm what the overall message was about.

It is important to keep a paper trail of past dreams, in order to better understand the upcoming dreams that may coincide with it. The connection could be easily seen, and the records help you recollect past dreams. That way you can detect any patterns among reoccurring dreams.

What if I Can’t Remember My Dreams?

If you can’t remember a dream, then it is hard to write them down. However, I definitely recommend (if the dream is of great significance) to write it down AS SOON AS YOU WAKE UP from that dream. Even if you’re sleepy. Because if you go back to sleep, you WILL FORGET the whole thing. I’ve been through that several times. I was just too sleepy, but I was mad the next morning. So, say you have an extraordinary dream, you wake up around 1 a.m. still sleepy of course, but you must write the dream down. The moment you awaken from a dream, the memory of it is still fresh in your subconscious mind. So write it all down. Then go back to sleep.

Then, make this a routine whenever you are compelled to write them down. You’ll notice better recollection, and details become more prominent. As you meditate on these dreams, you will find the interpretation for it. Any message that is sent to you is meant for you, it’s okay to ask for others for enlightenment, but ultimately you are the one who knows exactly what it means because the elements used are tailor-made for you to catch on to.

What Are The Benefits?

1. You’ll learn more about yourself. For instance some people dreamed of playing instruments they’ve never played before, and it motivated them to try it out. Come to find out, the talent was embedded in them. So, it could be that dreams show you what your talents are before you realize it in the waking world.

2. You may look at life from a different perspective which can be enlightening, bringing forth philosophical thoughts, which leads to greater wisdom. NOTE: YOU MUST ATTAIN DISCERNMENT to know what dreams to take seriously, and to know right from wrong, truth or false. I’m not suggesting that every single dream contains absolute truth. That’s where discernment comes in, to determine truth from lie. The more reason to write down your dreams, to keep tabs on it, and evaluate the patterns.

3. You may receive warnings of upcoming events, places, or people to be wary of. Don’t get paranoid of course, but remain alert. Alertness is part of the human instincts, so it is normal. There’s actually a theory that claims that dreams were a way our ancestors were able to keep their eyes open while they slept. Dreams would warn them of impending danger from enemies. It allowed you to prepare ahead of time. A survival instinct perhaps.

Don’t miss your opportunity to reconnect your mind with vast information beyond this world. Remember to always sharpen your mind. Think for yourself. Look at the bigger picture.

7 Ways to Live a Stress-free Life

Life has a way of throwing curveballs at us. But just like baseball, we’ve got 2 more strikes left before we’re out. Even when we are out, be thankful for another opportunity to be a batter again. Hey batter, You can do better!

What if I told you that there are a few things you can do to reduce the stress out of your life? Or better yet, let’s eradicate the stress.

1. Cut off Toxic People

You don’t need to breathe in all that pollution everyday.

This one tends to be tricky for some. Especially, if you’ve known these people since childhood whether it be friends or family. Nonetheless, if they are TOXIC then there should be absolutely no tolerance for Toxicity, no matter who it’s coming from. It’s usually those closest to you who may end up back stabbing you. Sometimes, we have to come to terms with the fact that those friends you grew up with aren’t the same anymore.

Everyone was innocent as a child, once we transition into adolescence we learn a few things about ourselves, then we reach into adulthood and life slaps you in the face. This is when we have to face reality. Most people tend to lose their childhood friends once they go through their middle school years, each one goes to their own clique, and become a different person in attempts to find themselves. In actuality we don’t really know who we are until we do some soul searching, which usually happens when we become mature adults.

So, cut off the toxic people from your life, and it’ll allow more room for your serenity, and for new positive friends to come. You can’t attract good people by hanging out with the wrong crowd. You could be missing out on various opportunities because of your association with radioactive toxicity. Good vibes don’t like clashing with substances that may cause a chemical explosion. No. No. No. We’re too chill for that mess.

As for family, well the best way to go about that is to place your focus on building a family of your own, instilling noble values, and those children you raise will not depart from your wise teachings. Create your own oasis of peace and joy. But in order to do that you must have wisdom among other resources.

2. Stop Caring about What People Think of YOU

Let them talk. When have gossipers ever been right about anything? Rarely!

Only YOU know yourself better than anyone else, so why does it matter what others have to say about you?

In this social media age, a lot of people have become so consumed with the opinions of others to the point it drives them to depression and stress.

Here’s the thing though:

Everyone has an opinion, and it may clash with other opinions. At the end of the day. It is simply just that: An OPINION. Do we really want to stress over something as fickle as an opinion? If that’s the case, we’d all lose our minds all day everyday, because opinions are always changing and it differs from person to person. Opinions are not the end-all be-all. If you try to satisfy opinions, you’ll never truly enjoy life, because if it’s not one thing, it’s another. It’s never-ending and inconsistent.

So, shut off the boisterous noises from social media voices, and really take the time to find yourself. Focus on building yourself up to become the best version of yourself. Stop caring about what people think. This is also the mantra of David Goggins, who has been able to accomplish many feats by simply not giving a damn about the opinions of others.

3. Focus on Your Path Ahead

Are you going to go or what? The path cannot walk itself!

Stop worrying about what the next person is doing. Take the time and energy to trailblaze your own unique path. We are meant to be different. I don’t know what’s the obsession with wanting to be like everyone else. There’s nothing wrong with standing out. But see you wouldn’t know you’re standing out of you were busy focusing on YOUR path ahead.

Every person has their own route to navigate through, so it doesn’t make sense to look at what others are doing in order to conquer a path they isn’t the same as others. And that’s OK.  The path was laid out for US, we wouldn’t be given a quest that we couldn’t handle.  Whenever it gets tough, it’s only for your betterment not detriment.

4. Let Go of Your Own Baggage

Mental or emotional baggage, traumas of the past. You don’t want to be carrying all that unnecessary load with you for decades on, onto the grave. Life can already be hard as it is, why make it even harder?

We cannot control the ills that have been done unto us, but we can control how we react, deal, and heal from it. Ultimately, you want to continue succeeding in the mission of becoming the best version of yourself no matter what happens. If you succumb to misery forever, you’ve lost the battle, and your enemies have won. Don’t let them beat you. These people who hurt you in the past are NO LONGER THERE so how is it that we still allow them to win? Our joy and resilience is their pestilence. The best way to heal is to not allow ourselves to self-destruct sue to the program our abusers have instilled in us. Stop letting them win! Your mindset can defeat them, you don’t even have to exchange fists (anymore).

Life will have suffering in it, there’s no going around it. Just keep being that strong soldier. The key is to strengthen your mind. Wisdom is a powerful remedy. There’s more life beyond this dimension. 

5. Seek Greater Wisdom

This one’s very vital to your vitality. I’ve mentioned wisdom plenty of times. Even the Holy Bible emphasizes the importance of seeking wisdom, also the fact that wisdom is more precious than rubies. We could have plentiful riches but without wisdom, we wouldn’t know what to do with all that. Without wisdom we’d squander on those gifts, and before we know we go broke.

Not only is wisdom beneficial for your finances and investments. Wisdom can go deeper than that. It gives you the information you need to save yourself from misery and hellish consequences. We often tell ourselves: “if only we have known better.” Of course, if you know better you do better (so I hope!). Wisdom provides that ability to forsee consequences, and also it gives you a profound understanding of how detrimental certain actions can be. You’ll look at the long-term more as opposed to instant gratification. People get in the most trouble by trying to fulfill their short-term pleasure excursions, which tend to cost you a huge chuck of your life. Ask ex-convicts who’ve done a solid 10+ years, they’ll tell you all about how they’ve thrown away their youth all because of instant gratification, which translates to a lack of wisdom.

So, as a free citizen, take some time to increase your wisdom. Learn some things, read, and meditate on it. Tread lightly though, not everything that’s written in this world is solid. Let’s take a dive into our philosophical capabilities in order to dissect information, have discernment, and make the right conclusions. Life’s nothing more than a learning experience.  Let’s use the time wisely.

6. Eat Healthy and Exercise

Vegetables are bright and colorful for a reason. It is to captivate our eyes to consume such healthful goodness!!

I’m no registered dietitian, but I’ve done a lot of research myself on nutrition. It’s quite straightforward. You want to treat your body like a holy temple. Eat healthy. Mostly vegetables, legumes, clean meats, whole grains, then fruit and oils(olive, coconut, grapeseed, avocado oils). We can indulge in a little bit of sweets in moderation though. But fast food is a definite NO NO!! Avoid processed garbage and refined sugars. However, cane sugar (brown and white), agave nectar, honey, maple syrup, and coconut sugar are some great alternatives for sweetness.

But you’ll see how the more active your body is from exercising consistently, the less your body will crave high sugar and fatty foods. Once you get your body into the rhythm of eating healthy, it’ll reject that Whopper you tried to feed it. Trust me, you’ll never wanna relive that grueling toilet experience again! Burgers aren’t so unhealthy if you make it at home. It’s the fast food junk you don’t want. Also, you can get creative with cooking, or create healthy alternatives. You don’t have to sacrifice the flavor! Curry is loaded with flavor and is very healthy!

7. Tune into Your Hobbies

Discover and refine your talents. Find activities you enjoy.  Compile a list of them, and try to fit them in your daily schedule. Once you find hobbies you’re good at, never let them go. The moment you let go of your hobbies is the moment you lose yourself. Keep nourishing that talent and you’ll see yourself flourishing. This will help you to stay concentrated in your path as well. You won’t be jealous of the person next to you because you’ll be too busy focusing on Your path. When you drive,  you wanna keep your eyes on the road otherwise you’ll crash. And that’s a mess you don’t want to get into.  So, please keep your eyes on the road (your path). And maneuver rightfully, avoiding the crazy road raging drivers.

This about sums it up! 7 Ways to live a stress free life.  Thank you for reading! And I hope this helps.

It All Starts With the Mind

When I first started blogging, it was because it’s simply something I have to do. Writers have to write, whether someone reads it or not. But in time, it became something I found important for others. Everything starts with the mind. Everything. Decisions start in the mind, and decisions derive from what you think. When […]

It All Starts With the Mind

Ever felt Worthless? Well…

You’re not.

Each and every one of us is made up of numerous molecules, that work day and night to keep YOU alive. That’s a lot of love right there.

Think about it! Every atom makes up molecules, which make up the cells, then the cells divide, creating even more cells, constantly regenerating themselves to keep YOU alive and well. Plenty of work is being done within you, and you don’t even have to think about it. See. That’s the thing, we tend to not think about all the effort our cells put into making sure we are HEALTHY.

HEALTHY SELF. HEAL THY SELF.

So while you have a lot going on in your mind. All the doubts, insecurities, anger, resentment, or sadness you may be feeling. Your body has a lot going on to keep you steady physiologically. And our mental anguish is basically piling up MORE unnecessary work for our cells, causing the healing of thyself to delay. Our negative thoughts and emotions impacts our bodys’ ability to perform and be resilient. Our cells work hard enough as it is, no need to add more on their plates. I’m sure you wouldn’t like it when you wash dishes and people add more dirty plates to the sink. Haha! I know I don’t. It feels like it never ends. Well, that’s how our cells feel when we stack on more workloads for them.

Our cells love us. They NEVER STOP working to keep you ALIVE.

If you weren’t worth anything, your cells wouldn’t be working so hard. When you take a moment to think about the vast complexities of our biological functions, it is utterly amazing the way we are created. We were made to LIVE. And to accomplish many feats, for as long as we are on this plane of existence. (Death is only a transcendence into another realm, so technically there’s no such thing).

Despite, the fact that we have an innumerable amount of cells meticulously moving and going for the long haul, each of us is only a speck in this vast universe. Similar to the multitude of stars in the sky, we are chosen to emanate life on this plane of existence. We breathe life all day everyday, we’re made to LIVE.

Though, we may be a speck of life, we are known in the skies, just like we know the stars above. We are beautiful creations, yet we are to remain humble. That’s why we’re just a speck, to remind us that the world does not revolve around us. But that doesn’t mean we are worthless. Our value is sealed, and we display them through our actions, qualities, and content of character. And you can shine brightly by setting yourself apart from the other stars. You can be surrounded by darkness, yet you still shine bright enough to be prominent to one’s eyes. (Like being the apple of God’s eyes.) Like being the only candle lit in a dark room. Just because you’ve been in the darkness, doesn’t mean you have to become it. If you become confederate to it, you will not be seen anymore, your talents would be in vain, and no longer would you be prominent. Do not even be dim. Do not align with darkness for you are made to LIVE, not wither into oblivion. You’ve walked among darkness but you are to become a prominent star, and multiply as such, bring forth life. We are to represent LIFE. And that right there should solidify your worth.

You don’t need to be famous to be a prominent star, just live righteously and represent light = life.

You. Are. Not. Worthless.

Do your cells a favor and elevate your mind state. Relax and rejuvenate.

The Healing Frequencies of Sound

Our minds register the vibrations of the sounds we hear around us, our bodies then resonate with it, reminding us of harmony.

“If you want to find the secrets of the Universe, think in terms of energy, frequency and vibration. ”

– Nikola Tesla

There is a YouTube channel, Healing Vibrations, has numerous videos of soothing singing bowls. This one in particular, “sleep music for anxiety” calms me down, and there are many more videos: energy regeneration, insomnia relief, underwater sleep music, mind clarity, stress relief, etc. There’s plenty to browse and relax to.

We tend to get caught up in the hustle and bustle of the world, working and trying to make ends meet, saving up, or investing. Whatever it is, we’ve taken away our focus on pure serenity, taking the time to truly relax, and rejuvenate our energy centers which are influenced by vibrations and frequencies. That’s why our own thoughts can destroy our productivity in the daytime, and our sleep in the nighttime. Stress dismantles the tranquility of a normal frequency, it chops it up, zapping your energy away, causing you to lose focus, making you irritated. When the frequencies we surround ourselves with are negative, chaotic, or just boisterous noise, our energy centers are unable to replenish. We must change our environment quickly before we are consumed by the toxicity. Noise Pollution hmm.

What makes 432 hz so special?

Singing bowls, among many sounds in nature, is at 432hz, which is known to be a healing frequency that resonates with our body and spirit. It sets all living things into a healthy balance, alleviating stress. This may sound far-fetched for some, but when delving into physics, it makes scientific sense.

It was already known in the ancient times about the healing frequencies and its ability to realign yourself. There’s more information here. 432hz isn’t the only frequency, there are others that mathematically are aligned with the order of the universe. There are also other healing frequencies including the Solfeggio frequencies.

As you know, the universe has an invisible blueprint that is calculated by vast mathematical and scientific calculations that are beyond what we know. In fact, we can be geniuses in this world and still only know a speck of information about the universe. Because everything in the universe must align, specific numbers are selected to represent a movement of sound (vibration) that travels and resonates within us, bringing us closer to nature.

The inside of our bodies resembles the universe, for example: our neurons firing looks like shooting stars, brain activity moving like the galaxy, dancing, constantly molding into something greater.

We have a universe within us, breath of life is in us, and life is abundant outside of us and BEYOND. The universe is as complex as the inner workings of our brains.

We’re not as connected as our ancestors were to nature. We tend to preoccupy our minds with insignificant things, and forget what truly matters. We’ve lost our touch with nature. We don’t want to even touch the rich soil, for concern that we’ll get our sleeves dirty. We cleave onto material things we don’t need, yet we’re not happy with it. So what is it that we really want?

We’ve forgotten who we are. Spiritual beings encased in vessels that makes us human. But if we’ve forgotten how to be human (in tune with nature, hunting, building with hands, survival) how could be ever get to realizing that we’re spiritual beings? highly capable of acquiring infinite knowledge and wisdom. Our time on this Earth is to learn many things, discovery, creativity, innovation, and growth. But most of us are so busy chasing paper, that will lose value in the near future, chasing careers that still don’t make us fulfilled, and we surround ourselves with the hustle and bustle that muffles the vibrations we need.

Rain is the most soothing sound for me, yet many people are inconvenienced by it on their way to their 9 to 5, it messes up their slacks or high heel shoes. But I bet if they were growing crops they’d appreciate the rain more. A day off from watering the plants… a day to relax and be soothed by the sounds of the showering skies, showering you with the healing frequency, making you feel at ease. Once again, remembering the harmony that exists. Harmony is a musical term for a reason you know.

The Eyes of a Narcissist

…are deadly, heavily laced with lies, willingly displaced their true intentions, hidden beneath the cold stoic eyes that show false cheer to those who come near, only those with heightened spiritual senses can detect the fakery within, the charming character played is highly manipulative,

It takes more than just experience to realize this, it takes wisdom to not get stuck in a conundrum web spun by a narcissist.

Their words of deceit they keep it on repeat until the illusion never skips a beat, it becomes a major part of you like your heart.

There’s just something about the eyes of the narcissist, so worn and cold, no emotion nor empathy, apathy is a path they’ve selected, it goes beyond selfishness, it’s an abyss too deep for any measurement to reach, and when you fall victim to their darkness it’s hard to come out from beneath,

The words of a narcissist, continue to persist no matter how much you insist in resisting the fallacious content from being ingrained in your brain, the little bit of sanity that remained just took a 180, you’re not afraid, see, you just forgot which way to escape, or you may be wondering if there’s even a need to regain your mind again.

We’ve been mentally slain by the speech of a narcissist, who forced us to believe in lies and undermine the reality of the bullshit standing right before us, they glorified the mortified faces we make when lies are being coerced on us by their twisted affirmations, bringing our negative thoughts into constant rotation, unrealistic but at one point we believed it.

We were held captive by their captivating form of expression, but we’ve awakened from it all. We finally unveiled the truth, no longer are we too frail to look into the lifeless eyes of the most conniving, only to see that nothing is there.

I often wonder how can such a person harbor and hoard up so many lies and webs of deception, you’d think they get caught up in their own mess, fumbling over their own words, stumbling over their own abundant well-kept arsenal of lies, they never seem to slip until you take a closer glimpse…

How can they? by day play the role of a good friend, then later that evening that kindness takes a flight, a hiatus, and their true colors lit up,

lighting you up, blinding you, winding you back into subjugation, preparing your indoctrination.

The wicked grimace that night remains imprinted it in your mind, so much so you recognize that evil grin the very next day at the dinner table, and everyone around is so clueless as to how ruthless that narcissist is, their personalities switch like changing the channel, it’s used to throw you off guard before they throw you under the bus, never let a narcissist know they’ve been busted. Just run silently, stealthily like a shinobi, leave no trace behind…

To ensure they don’t find you.

So they can no longer undermine YOUR mind.

A Fatherless Home is like a Pilotless Plane…

Can you imagine being on board a plane then suddenly the pilot decides to abort mission in the midst of our journey? That could be disheartening and scary.

Last night, 2/10/21, I had this dream that I was on a small plane heading towards Thailand.

I was able to see through the front window, beautiful forests, tall trees and green grass in the rural area, ponds, and leisure chairs right next to rivers, and I knew it to be Thailand. The pilot was conducting the plane too close to the trees, we were moving very slow, I almost thought the plane would go down and stop, and we’d be stranded. But we continue to go a little higher into the air.

Then I had this thought come to mind “a fatherless home is like being on a plane without a pilot. Imagine if the pilot just parachuted out of the plane, leaving the co-pilot to do everything, endangering the passengers, increasing the likelihood of crashing.”

Though, our pilot never left, and we did arrive to our destination safely. As I was about to sip on some Chai tea, I wake up.

A pilot (father) has a duty to ensure that the plane arrives to its destination safely. Wherever the passengers (his children) decide to go after landing is up to them (when they reach adulthood). If a pilot just decided to jump out of the plane with his parachute saying, “Forget this I’m out!” in the middle of a long flight, the co-pilot (lone mother) would have a lot of stress. There’s a reason two pilots are needed. It went from making sure the plane arrives – to making sure it just doesn’t crash and burn. It went from living life to just plain survival. This endangers the passengers which would most likely have difficulty in life getting to their destination. Their priority then becomes “making sure you don’t mess up” instead of having the confidence to move along to prosper and focus on tackling high achievement goals, like “once I arrive I will do this and that.”

A lot of extra energy is exerted when there’s no pilot (no father) to lead the plane to the right direction. Everyone in a family unit is to do their part in ensuring that the next generation is prepared to take on the world.

The Battle of the MiNd

Sit back and observe your life, as if you were your own spectator, and analyze. You’ll realize that no matter how many layers you peel off that onion, the root is the mind.

How your mind handles and reacts to situations is key that can SET you apart, instead of SETbacks breaking you apart.

You cannot. You must not undermine the mind.

That could be a major downfall, when you neglect strengthening your mind. We tend to think every obstacle is physical. Your body is not the only thing that should be in shape.

Then again, you don’t want to just be “in shape”, you want to surpass many obstacles, and be what average people call “superhuman”. Do not put limitations on yourself. Just see how far you can go whether it’s running ultramarathons, hiking trails, figuring out advanced mathematical equations, creating an invention, breaking world records, surviving the wilderness, digging for jewels, etc. The list is endless really.

No matter what goals you decide to begin your journey with, the mind will always be that stumbling block you have to get over. It is YOUR mind. YOU already own it, so OWN IT.

You’re going to feel good after it’s all set and done. Think about this: Do you really have an excuse to stop now?

No. No you don’t. There is no excuse unless you make them. Instead of manufacturing excuses, let’s be more productive and produce results. Our mind is the powerhouse for that production.

You know what really grinds my gears? When I see so much great potential go to waste, all because of a factor they could’ve changed: the MiNd. It’s like expecting a stock to rise, only for it to devalue.

Your mind is the factory. You can either:

A) Manufacture excuses – nothing useful will be shipped out, a useless enterprise (with no prizes) it’s no surprise that it creates a surplus of disappointment. No appointments are scheduled because you’ve allowed failure to be an option. Not just an option, but you’ve made it the only option. Opting your own self out. That’s like striking yourself out. Manufacturing excuses will never produce any fruit, yet you’ve invested so much into the Misery Company stocks, it’s no wonder your blessings are blocked.

B) Produce Results – solid accomplishments worth the mention, you started with nothing so what do you really have to lose? You start building and notice that you’ve ran WAY past that goal post, so much so, you no longer seek finish lines, next thing you know you cross state lines. You’ve gone so far you may be honorably discharged from the position when the product continues to flourish. Like having abundant passive income, there’s no need for a job. But you still work as an entrepreneur because you enjoy what you produce. Plenty fruit.

The mind can do wondrous works for you, but you have to tap into that mindset of wealth. Not just money. But have that wealthy state of mind, where you see the potential in you, and abundance of accomplishments ready for the taking.

Do not sell yourself short.

Be your own great investor.

Invest in yourself. Your health. Your Mind. Before anything else.

Philosophy: Everything Began with a Question

“Where’s your source? Your scholarly source?”

You mean the source that someone else wrote? A source that wasn’t birthed from the scholar’s own questions?

What questions were asked that led to that source? And is it really true? Why would they publish all truth in every source if they know the truth would wake up the masses?

Since when did TRUTH produce good slaves?

Only certain sources are true facts and are allowed to be viewed by the public, but some information is hidden, for if that segment of truth was to be unlocked, it would create a wave of awareness that transcends cognitive dissonance in an instant, they have no choice but to accept it.

Sources were sourced from those who asked many QUESTions, then they went on a QUEST to find the answers. In order, to find information you have to know what you’re looking for, QUESTions sends you on a QUEST, a mission to find the truth, which would become a source.

However, there are entities who have done this, they have uncovered the truth, yet only to conceal it in a vault, hoping that the masses would never figure it out, nor even QUESTion. For those who do QUESTion will be seen as crazy, uneducated, and will be asked, “Where’s your source?”

Academic subjects derived from philosophy through questioning; the Art of Socratic Questioning. Therefore, everything began with a question, yet questions are discouraged in most classroom settings today. Looks like they’ve solidified the school curriculum as the end all be all. But if knowledge is infinite, why the limitations? Why the suppressing of philosophical discussions? Hmm.

Also, you’d be shamed by others to not dedicate a space for questioning, critical thinking, and deep thought, “Philosophy degrees don’t pay the bills!” Yeah, that’s what skills are for, but there is more to life than just paying bills. Who are we paying our utilities to? “You’re not allowed to ask those questions. Be a good slave.” Pay those bills not knowing someone’s getting rich off you paying for water, a basic human need. Didn’t our ancestors at one point never had to pay for water? There was wells. Nowadays, in certain areas, wells are illegal. Ha go figure! Stop asking Questions!”

Wells have the access to an infinite source of water. They want to place limitations on the expansion of our source of information. We’re in the Age of Aquarius , the water bearer, water symbolizing knowledge; also a time we know as the “Information Age“, where we have access to vast amounts of information on the outside (Internet). Let’s not neglect our own wells, our own sources of water, the knowledge within us.

The best way to go about it is by Finding the source. There are sources that are invalid, yet are placed on a pedestal of accuracy. If the source of information is corrupt, it cannot be trusted, it’ll have you going in circles. That is when you SEEK for the true source through your own QUESTioning. Some man-made sources has been sourced from concentrate, not even real juice, is it really worth the squeeze? The truth has been diluted.

The truth is out there, but if you cannot find it in the physical plane. The power of the mind is the art of QUESTioning, then there’s the spiritual source, where all information is within us.

The spiritual realm has a way of revealing the truth to the chosen few who’ve been gifted with dreams and visions. No matter how much truth they try to hide, nothing on this Earth can hide from Our Creator. Our source is infinite, all truth is within us, this is nothing new, it’s ancient knowledge.

Dreams have always been sacred, and have uncovered much information that the human mind could not fathom. In order to stop this truth, you’d have to be convinced that the spiritual realm isn’t real. If you’re going to deny the spiritual realm, then you’d have to deny ancient history. Certain historical artifacts is one of the things they like to hide. Hmm. What a time to be alive.

You cannot run away from the TRUTH.

How We’re Programmed to Self-Destruct… But Not For Long

“Let’s take a step back… some steps way back into memory lane. Psychoanalytically, recalling, your reasons for your fall…”

Ok.

Toxic environments, all that murky water we’ve absorbed,

and that filth became all we knew, so we come of age into a world imbued

With pitfalls waiting on ya to land and crawl, with no way to get out, no bond, now just a CONvict CONfined behind your own walls and bars,

We take that murkiness we absorbed as children, witnessing dysfunction, no way to explain the the pain we see, our innocent brains couldn’t make sense out of the nonsense we’ve been force-fed with.

We may have been told by those we trusted, and those who claim to love us the very thing we’re trying to unlearn.

Like…

“This is between you and me, okay, don’t tell your mother…” or “you better not tell anyone or I will [threat].”

Anyone who’s heard this one already knows the disturbing thing it entails. Sexual abuse has a way of slowly destroying every bit of innocent fabric that subtracts childhood joy, replacing it with premature cynicism, depression, and anger that cannot be contained, one becomes a walking ticking time bomb ready to explode at any moment, all this time they’ve been holding in, that secret they were forced to keep, but speaking up is healing, who cares if no one believes it. You know the truth, stand tall with fortitude. Fearlessly, don’t let it make you restless. Injustices on this Earth do NOT go unchecked, for the Earth has been crying over the same heinous crimes long before we were born.

Believe me when I say, that justice will be served. If the physical realm won’t handle it, the spiritual realm will.

“This is grown folks business, when you get older you’ll understand…” or esto es asunto de adultos.” Which is Spanish for “this is an adult matter.”

Well, if it is why be so loud and out in the open about it? Why cry in front of them? You don’t think your children will catch on and question? Now you’re forced to explain a pain that was self-inflicted by bad decisions, breaking a bit of the innocence they aren’t prepared to witness their parents’ imperfections, marriage covenant broken, it will affect them. It was too early. And if you don’t explain it thoroughly, well they may go searching outside, in all the wrong places for answers, and be led astray.

Better have wisdom before you have some little ones. Because they’re always watching the only examples they have is at home.

“You’re gonna end up just like your [fill in the blank]” … of a relative who’s considered a failure.

What a way to speak life into the youth, don’t be mad when it becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy. People can curse themselves and their own children with words like that. Paving the roads for pitiful futures, then complaining about the lack of fruit. The youth has potential greater than the old stubborn mules. What kind of track team is this? The baton must be passed to them, next in line to sprint, but telling them they’re gonna lose the race before they even try is recipe for failure.

“She’s gonna end up pregnant before her high school graduation…”

Maybe she won’t, but maybe she will thanks to the lack of guidance, with no one to plant the seeds of wisdom, instead she’ll roam about this world vulnerable, a lost soul, perfect prey for the wolves that go in search for girls like her. As she’s looking for direction, she encounters a shady guy, bad intentions, only to be met with an erection, ready to stick some seeds in her and it’s not wisdom. A stumbling block cock, he cocked his weapon killed her spirit then slithered like a serpent, disappearing into the darkness, leaving another generation fatherless.

“You’re worthless, you’re a piece of sh!t, just like your [fill in the blank]...”

This line usually is said by the person who actually is a piece of shit, but they wanted to project that onto you. They wanna refer you to a job position at the Misery Company they have a tenure to. Don’t worry! It comes with no benefits, yet many people take this shitty career anyways. Please, don’t be those people.

“Look at you! You’re [fill in the blank]!!”

Of any negative adjective you can think of. Perhaps, “ugly, fat, stupid, listless, pathetic, definitely some curse words.” Only to solidify the low-self esteem they want to set you up with because they feel that way about themselves. They do this so that it’s easier for you to accept the gaslighting they’re about to ignite you with. Narcissists do it so swiftly, you can’t see it, especially if you’ve allowed them to dictate your sight. But when you’re so young, you believe everything… easily manipulated, you grow up to become prey in a world full of opportunists.

Time to remove the target off your back. Recognize that you’ve been programmed to self-destruct by people (possibly even family) who were also self-destructive themselves.

How did they get like that? Probably the same way YOU DID!”

Generational curses run VERY DEEP.

“Question is… when will you decide to break the cycle? It’s now in your hands.”

“You can’t change the past, but you have the power to change your future.”

“So, now that the ball is in your court, whether or not the game is won is up to YOU.”

How Temptations can Become an Addiction

And soon affliction.

As alluring and desirable temptations may appear to be, it is just a temporary thirst, a craving that is limited, never replenishing or nourishing.

Once you give into it, nothing is gained; what’s done is done, the pleasure was fleeting, but pain and regret keeps on repeating. Was it really worth it?

No.

Once finished, soon you will hunger for more, this desire becomes insatiable, untameable, it escalates into an addiction. Thus, that is how an addiction is born. All of this is in the mind, what’s deeper? your soul. (Body:Mind::Spirit:Soul)

When we often give into temptations and unhealthy whims, we weaken our spirit and soul. The MIND is like the bridge between the Body and Spirit; therefore, the mind must be well equipped with knowledge AND wisdom.

The more we blindly give into temptations, the more difficult it is for us to know who we are, what our purpose is, and life-saving messages becomes obscure as we set foot into darkness. This weakens us, our awareness descends, making us more vulnerable to worldly pitfalls and/or spiritual attacks.

When we give into unhealthy desires (temptations that yield no fruit) we make our bodies crave more and more, to the point that fruitlessness becomes irresistible and insatiable.

Just can’t get enough of that? It’s never enough. So since it’s never enough why desire it so much?

People crave things that don’t last. They’re so eager for instant gratification that they pursue cheap thrills which mean nothing, just a quick fix, sometimes they just want a quick whiff of it, perhaps a glimpse, but what’s the point of it all?

Once it is all set and done, all that is in the past but you’ll be yearning for more of it in your present, preventing you from growing. The heat of the moment is only temporary, so why chase it? It’s nothing but a mere tease until it becomes an addiction.

What makes addiction so hard to get over? Once we reach to that level of obscurity, not only do our bodies crave it, but the addiction penetrates the spirit, our mind normalizes it, the vice/drug becomes a staple of our being, which is powerfully dangerous. The addiction replaces our natural Dopamine that our mind produces, to the point it isn’t enough to fulfill the insatiable desire for things that damage us slowly. It goes deeper, making us prone to falling for temptations that tamper with our spirit.

Our mind is the arsenal we can use to stay sober and vigilant.

You do NOT want to engorge your body while starving your mind and spirit. Most people wonder why they feel so empty. It’s because no matter how much stuff you stuff yourself with, you’ll still feel empty. No matter how much lusts you surrender to, it’ll only weaken you, enslave you to pathetic whims you WILL NOT profit from.

They feed their body and starve their mind and spirit; yet they wonder why they feel empty.

How can the mind work at its optimal level when it is being starved? Feeding the mind and spirit will give us better control of our body: this comes through discipline, patience, and dedication. The potential of the mind and spirit is infinite, so when you feed it, the power is fulfilling.

The difference between eye candy and food for the soul: Eye candy looks appealing but it’s bad for you, not nourishing, and may decay your teeth long-term. Candy is sweet but it will never satisfy the body’s nutritional needs, it weakens you. It makes you addicted to the “feel good feeling”, never truly seeking healing, and so you’re stuck wondering how you got there.

Whereas, food for the soul is healthy and nutritious, you cannot get it from the drive-thru, it takes work and patience to acheive and maintain, but it strengthens you and is very rewarding. It keeps you full and satisfied, no need to chase vices. You no longer crave the things that’ll hurt you in the long run.

When it Gets Tough

“I’ve got a lot of problems I have to deal with…”

Digging up precious jewels isn’t ever going to be easy. It wouldn’t be so rewarding if things came to us to easily. You want to unlock your full potential, and that only happens when the going gets TOUGH.

The healing comes when you don’t focus so much on the feeling, unpeel the emotions and you’ll see the commotion, senses can be deceiving,

A sudden clever idea is as satisfying as retrieving deleted memes,

After all that mining, you’ve finally struck a diamond, (it would’ve never happened if you didn’t endure the ROUGH) you grow to have a new found admiration for prior dire situations,

When you may have contemplated dying, lying down lifeless due to stress, suicide only exacerbates suffering, your soul recycles, putting you back into the cycle, back with the psychos,

You’ll never know whom you’ve inspired through all your trials, give them a result that’ll make them smile,

Progress exists at every mile you trek ahead, no point in ending it, you may reincarnate and restart the process again.

Just like in an ultra-marathon, very challenging to the human spirit, but we want to run ’til we get to the finish line. No sense in quitting, you’d have to start over next time.

“I don’t stop when I’m tired, I stop when I’m done.” – David Goggins

Nevermind the blood clots, sweaty wet drenched socks, rocks blocking our path, stumbling on rough rubble.

Nevermind the leg stiffness, shin splints, nerve pain kissing your latissimus muscles, running fumbling, but you’re still living.

We’re on a mission to win this, and many are present to witness your gifts, talent and resilience.

R A G E

The main thing keeping me encaged,

A self inflicted venom, provoked by them, who keep the poison hidden, But we are to get rid of it, when we’re hit,

By the unseen needles they need us to be idle to drive our minds off a cliff, dwindling any wit that still remains,

Scooping up any sense of autonomy, monopolizing what is rightfully mine, robbing me blind.

I react against any attack, Meditative prayers send them packing,

They lose, for they’re the ones who signed a pact, to unleash discord among the world,

And what we have is the Word, the righteous vibration that obliterates any trace of wicked existence, it’s already been written,

When you’ve witnessed prophecies unfold, behold your very eyes, it becomes easy to see,

Sometimes it feels like I’m the last one of my tribe, I take no bribes, no matter how high, the price will never suffice eternal life,

Our home goes beyond this earthly dome, no matter how much knowledge you acquire, wisdom is still required,

Even then we’re still limited until our lives become infinite.

Never Tell Yourself that You’re not ‘good enough’

YOU have total control of your own VALUE. DO NOT sell yourself short.

YOU are in control of your vessel when you are AWAKE that is… first you have to be aware that you’re not sleep-walking throughout life. Many perils await when opportunists can sniff vulnerable ‘bystanders who’d ‘stand by’ their disguised enemies not knowing they’re about to get ambushed.

DO NOT give your good heart to such people who would use and abuse you. YOU are much better than that. And even if you’ve been used and abused before, DO NOT let them corrupt YOU. Do NOT become whom you despise, or you’ll end up hating yourself.

DO NOT put yourself in a position where your vessel can get hacked by a wolf, seeking to devour the last droplets of innocence that may still remain, resulting in your efforts becoming in vain.

When such tragedies do occur, learn to forgive yourself. Dwelling in the pain that causes mental swelling won’t take back what happened. Your remorse brings you into a different course, a more prosperous one, and you may feel you don’t deserve it after all the mistakes you’ve made. This is where the battle of the mind kicks in. You feel you’re not good enough to accept that new path ahead even though IT’S RIGHT THERE!

The path is there for you to walk to, but your mind cannot fathom it. The one thing holding you back is the belief YOU SET FOR YOURSELF that ‘you are not good enough.’ But who told you that? WHO made you believe you’re so unworthy? The same people who made you feel unworthy are the same people who most likely are narcissists who live with no remorse or empathy. They’ve become hollow vessels, and they’re seeking to recruit more miserable people.

DO NOT sign up for that club. The fact that there is a path for you is enough hope for you to FORGIVE yourself and WALK with fortitude. Tune out the nay-sayers, they don’t care. They’re mad they cannot access the path that YOU can. Why can’t they access it? Because they’ve chosen to relish in bitterness, anger, and absolute misery. They’ve volunteered to become an architect of their own hell, and they wanna hire you for another position at the Misery Company.

Decline that offer, otherwise that offer will make you decline.

DO NOT follow behind the footsteps of the misery company, don’t let their dark clouds hover over you, but the longer you spend being close to them, the more those dark clouds will lean over and overtake you, to the point there’s no overcoming.

Please know YOUR value is precious. If you can still see the path then it is not too late. For most of us, we struggle to realize we can make it through, and despite our flaws, our past, we can get passed it by finally backpacking down that path.

Away from self-destruction, and into a new, cleaner place of peace, pristine with tall trees that remind you of prosperous longevity. Tree branches resemble the inside of your lungs, the broncioles, which do supply the body with oxygen, needed for you to breathe.

Where does the path lead to?

The fact that you’re still living is a gift that should remind you of the possibility of YOUR longevity.

But it is now up to YOU to accept the path to reach that goal. Now, YOU must FORGIVE yourself, and move on. This trail isn’t going to walk itself. 😊

Only thing holding you back is… YOU

Your mind is the powerhouse of all thoughts… THOUGHTS that can be manifested into reality. You’ll either have productive or self-destructive thoughts.

Which one would YOU prefer to have? The answer is quite simple, but is it easy to maintain a level head?

For most of us, if not all, it can be a daily challenge until we focus on investing in our MINDS, if you don’t MIND.

You set out to do something crazy! Say, maybe participate in a 100 miler trail run, and you’ve never done it before. You train physically, but your mind is the real CHALLENGE. Your mind constantly reMINDS you of what you can’t do! It does this when you least need a talk of self-defeat, so you turn around and combat it with incredible AFFIRMATIONS that you will make come true through your actions! So when you look back at those actions… there is your proof that it can be DONE!

YOU CANNOT SAY that it can’t be done. The more you accomplish the farther you can go.

Same concept can be applied to everyday life when our MINDS have been programmed with self-defeat from the past. The best way to let go of the past is by DISMANTLING those self-defeating thoughts. Bit by bit, and piece by piece. Like mining for precious stones, we’re digging through dark and murky tunnels, it may be uncomfortable doing so, but the reward is much greater. Always remember why you are here. Don’t stop until you’ve accomplished what you’ve set out to do! You never know how close you are to strucking that gold or that diamond.

Words are powerful. You can either build or destroy yourself or others with them. Which one will you choose? You’ll either bask in the ambiance of true fulfillment, or you’ll self-destruct with only yourself to blame.

The answer is simple. The challenge to maintain it remains, only to solidify your drive, which must be continuous. The wheel must keep going! Only you can power that wheel to life, so keep on LIVING!!

The Forgotton Vibration of Words

We TALK, TALK, and Talk so much throughout the day, we tend to overlook the power behind the talking that we do. Every word we use carries a vibration. And whatever vibration you choose to use will determine the outcome.

There are plenty of things we cannot control in this world, but the one thing we can control is our TALK, the vibe we carry when we walk.

We TALK so much we dilute the power behind the words we use. It becomes meaningless when we bring into existence the idea of self-defeat and doubt.

Is doubt what you want to be about? I hope not.

Do not speak doubt into existence.

We tend to overlook the power we carry by simply speaking. The best speeches come from self-reflection. Inspect your life and see what it is that needs to be improved, and prove to yourself that it can be DONE.

Vibration can either breed creation or destruction.

You choose.
