WOW it’s quiet…Then GOD Spoke…whispered

Life in my reality has been really noisy for years, and I did not know it. Thing about noise is we can get use to external sounds and not understand that when we think life is quiet, there is still too much noise. To name a few, TV, radio, people, engine, tire, ringing ears, emotions are all thing creating much noise.

Yeah, I know that last paragraph was a handful and kind of abstract to most people, but stay with me.

Everywhere we go there is noise. Sounds are assaulting our ears at any given time. I never understood this until I had to sit in my residence after removing all the excess physical belongings accumulated over 15 years of living in my so called palace. Life got complicated and I needed to get simple, you know go minimalism. As I sat in my empty house in the middle of the night I noticed silence has sound and it can be deafening.  I was determined to find true peaceful silence.

Can you hear the seeds move?

I did find there was a time, for me when the noise of the material world diminished to levels where I could perceive the intelligence of things unnoticed and everything in between. That connection to the absence of physical sound came one morning when the noise in my head had been too loud emotionally the night before. It was brought to me by whispering aloud to myself, “What and I going to do?” One morning  by my empty garage,  without a sound, for a lack of better description it came to being, “Do not worry, this time has passed you will be new.” All I had to do was ask. There it was in a microsecond, then it was gone. The feeling was permanent.

After that experience, the task of hearing without sound became extremely important in my life, the experience of  being able to feel and connect with a new dimensionallly or rarely tapped sense became  important. It is hard to put into words but some of you may understand what I am talking about.

One thing it made me act upon is shutting the Fuck up and listening more to people, and life. Let the organic speak to me.

After this experience, this polished media world turned grey, and the ability to see bullshit value in an instant became really clear.

God somehow spoke to me, actually whispered and continues to do so. I just have to recognize the language and message.

However you picture GOD,  it’s personal to you, and I respect that. Currently I believe internally there is  a better understanding of GOD being everything. Alpha and Omega is much clearer.

All I can say is if you seek the “quiet” enough to be able to ask your important question, please have the patience to let the quiet settle. The answer will come.

Not Creepy but Someone is watching you.

There is some who is observing what you do. Don’t get creeped out, but it is a truth. Ninety percent of the time we are partially aware of our surroundings. Like I said don’t be creeped out. In this day and age we put so much information about our personal lives up for grabs and then we freak when someone who is not on your radar give you a clue they are observing your life.

This is a Creepy Picture, I took in Milwaukee!

That is not the point of my topic. The brainwashing continues to evolve in our society that things have to have a negative spin.

I am referring to admiration. There is a wonderful feeling to get confirmation about how you live your life has impacted another person as an example of how to live. I was an only child, therefore I really did not have a model to live by i.e older brother, sister, or cousin. Much of my early childhood gave me few examples I though were worth wild, so I turned to the thing in the world I felt were good and just.

I grew up in Detroit during the heyday of the Young Boys incorporated and the arrival of Crack cocaine.  I was an only child with a strong presence from my mother, I knew caution was my friend… actually extreme caution was my friend. I chose to follow the path of the narrow, since the path that was broad had too much risk.

I have followed this philosophy to this day. There were a few times in my life when I slipped and followed, but it turned out to be a lesson to fortify a reason to stay in my own lane of life., and just do  ME.

The reason I started to write this post started from a memory that put a smile on my face. There was a kid who I though had the world by a string when i lived in Detroit proper as a teenager. He was a musician, the girls loved him and he made friends easily. Some 20 years later, we met again and spent some time together over several months. ‘

I realized our lives had taken drastically different paths. His path led him to the penitentiary, while I had built a family and a career. Other aspect of our early child/teen years came to light as well. One thing that he informed me of was how for the longest time admired the way I carried myself and my life when we were young. Blew my socks off to hear that, because this guy is and was talented and displayed great confidence. I kind of looked up to this guy because during our teen years he had so much confidence, was very respectful, and had freedoms other could not handle.
To find out that He was looking up to me was a shocker. During our mid teens my path changed and we began did not see each other much.

Example # 2

I was a guitar player for a local church when I was 29 years old. During a revival the church brought in a young keyboard player and drummer from a different congregation.  They were AWESOME musicians.  I played guitar to fill in the sound and the keyboard player and I hit it off . I found out this guy was only 19 years old, but carried himself  like a man many years older.  He was marred with a small daughter, and played for his fathers church.  As time passed and we played more gospel functions together, I asked if his family would like to have diner with my family, I would cook.  We had a nice time., and we continued our friendship for a few more years. Then paths separate me from people again. The temporary factor set in.

Years later I had an inkling to visit the church where the young keyboard player father was pastor. Things had changed, II walked into the church, took a seat. Watched as my old friend played the organ with such grace and felt good that he was doing well. Just as he noticed me , he stopped playing, the music stopped and he walked over  hugged me, and introduced me to the entire congregation. Then he proclaimed this is Brother Emmitt. He changed my life,  then he thanked GOD and went back to the keyboard and began playing  for the rest of the service. (wait,WHAT!)

After the service he informed me that I gave him direction because of how I lived, and until that point he had not seen a young black man who had his own house, took care of his family and lives a decent life without being shady.  He told me that I let him know the dream was possible. GOD works in mysterious way.

My ramblings in this post are this, you don’t know who is watching and admiring what you do and who you are. Yes you are doing all the right things but the wrong things may seem easier. There is someone who loves you for who you are and what you can become . Live that life to inspire others to reach their potential, and your happiness will fill with abundance

Love you All

Be Bless and Happy

Back to the basics..Old School methods still work

We live in a very high tech world today. Mobile phone that do everything from giving us our location to sending video around the world. When I was a child and my Dad gave me a digital watch (they were new at the time), he told me that someday everyone and almost everything would have a computer or operate from a computer. My father told me thing in 1976. I though wow, but I have lived long enough to see my fathers prediction come true.

Even though we live in a digital age, sometimes we have to go back to the analogue methods to get thing accomplished. Instead of sending and email, it is more personal to write a litter and mail (snail mail) it to someone. Instead of posting pictures of yourself to someone, it is better to visit them in person.

The same is true for fitness. I am finding out we don’t need memberships to gyms and fitness clubs to lose weight, gain muscle or to increase our overall health. The only real thing we need is drive and our own bodies to become fit.

IF you are unhealthy or unfit your happiness can be compromised. Don’t believe all that you hear, just because someone tell you the latest and greatest is the best doesn’t not make it true. GOD gave you everything you need to to be the perfect YOU! So use you to be perfect.

No Worry, No Cry. It works out over time.

We spend a great deal of time worrying about our current situation, than maybe enjoying the situation. For some people it is hard to see the forest because those dam trees are blocking their vision. 99% of our life is temporary, having said that about time, why waist it concentrating on thing that are the filler in our daily lives.

Things Just Work out, if you let them.

Remember that test it was so important for you to pass in high school, nope you don’t. Remember that bill that you didn’t have enough money to pay for several months ago, nope.

Do you remember what you were so worried about…?:

  • 10 years ago
  • 5 years ago
  • 2 years ago
  • 1 year ago
  • 6 month ago
  • 3 month ago
  • 15 days ago
  • 1 week ago

Seriously, chose the good things to look forward to. I know it requires a retraining of your entire outlook, but it is worth it. Most of this we call life is temporary, 99.9 percent of it is temporary, so why worry about thing that are bound to change anyway.

 

Live well, I love you all

People watching and interaction

There is nothing greater than the return of a smile.  One method of being happy, is being comfortable with the people around you no matter where you are. Strike up a conversation with a stranger the next time you are in a checkout line.

Being intentionally nice to people has great benefits, they usually return your niceness.

Let’s just be nice to other people.

Where does Self Esteem come forward from?

Confidence, Self Esteem, and happiness are all a part of self love.  It is one of those funny question as where does it come from, or how do you obtain it. The answer is simple. Self esteem comes from living and accomplishment. It is my belief we all start out with a zero point on the self esteem ladder. Some points we go positive some point we go negative. If there are too many factors (people) detracting from your self esteem, then Low Self esteem is the outcome.

Your experience is just that, YOURS. If you use things out of your control as a barometer for your existence them you will have a tough go at it. This is why we see superstars who are adored by the public with really messed up lives. They need the approval of other as a measure of their worth. The alternative are those Media stars who perform their acts as a matter of an expression of THEIR Individual passion.

Passionate, Confidence, and Self esteem…Be There Now

Live Happy be Healthy

Time fools us all. Time moves so slowly to the point we barely notice changes around us. 1 minute,1 day, 1 week,1 month 1 year. There are a great many changes occurring every moment. The most subtly change is body composition.  If any person gains 1.5 pounds of fat from the age of 22 to 42 that is 30 extra pounds at the end of that period. The 1.5 pound number is a general average for the united states, for some it can be 2~3 pounds a year at any time. Many of us in this modern society don’t exert as much energy as generation prior due to technology. I know this rang true for me.

I started a job where I sat at a desk and talked on the phone for 6+ hours a day. the most walking I did was from my house to my garage to get into my car. Within three months I gained 8 pounds. If that weight gain would have been allowed to progress. There could have been a world of health problems down the road.

I know with Television shows such as The Biggest Loser people are starting to be more conscious about their weight health.

I love the people of this planet and care how you experience this life. It is difficult to do so if you are diabetic,or have heart problems due to weight. I can broach the subject, but you have to do the work. Start slow with moderate exercise to be healthier. Cause I care about you.
