Day 164 : Detached


I had to become attached so I could detached.

I had to let go of what held me back, before I could receive what called me forward.

I let those misconceived ideas fall by the wayside.

I let those preconceived opinions sail into the abyss.

I let it go.

I let it be.

For I knew I was born free.

For I knew I would be again.

I simply let it go.

And, I simply let it be.

Detached.

Day 59: Embedded Favor


This is why I love the story of Jesus. An unknown child from a perceived unknown town. Grows up with an unknown identity. And is revealed to be the known savior.

Poked and prodded he hung on a cross. The unknown savior was not shocked at their behavior. Yet, his resolve never wavered.

For he knew he had embedded favor.

Day 10: Purposeful Madness


It was worth every step.
Not the image of who I hoped to be.
But the reality of who I am.

Every rock overturned.
Every stone moved aside.
The madness of self-discovery begins with self-forgiveness.

Forgiveness for who I thought I was.
Forgiveness for who I really am.
Forgiveness for who I portrayed you to be.
Forgiveness for who you painted me to be.

The wary traveler finally found a home.
And, it isn’t under a glass snow-filled dome.

My canvas is a masterpiece.
The colors collide.
The scenery pops.
No one gets the chance to draw lots.

Yes, I’ve traveled through madness to find me.

In exactly the place I needed to be.

I am now truly set free.

Day 311: Escaping Mental Captivity


Mindful

The other day I was venting on Facebook about a woman I encountered during lunch. Her newfound knowledge had sparked a flame she could not contain as the fruits continually fell from the tree. And, similarly to a rabbit in a carrot field, she consumed more than she could fully digest.

As I ranted on silently in my head and physically on my phone, she appeared unaffected by my designed reclusiveness. Jabbering on she recounts the rich history of our ancestry as if the shaman had just spoken to the little children amongst the cold night and bristling fire of our journey from kings and queens to slaves and cattle and back to mental kings and queens.

Reminiscent of Yoda holding court as Luke Skywalker describes the force. I sit willing myself to engage while rapidly wanting to disengage.

Respectfully conscious of another’s presence I crafted a mental door to escape the forming thoughts flowing forth as they sought to reach her awakening thought. Through a vehicle that has some of us still chained to the machine.

She continues and the more broken thought meets new thought, the more I poetically regurgitate the inner me forcibly holding her in. She’s the cynic I overcome each day. The one that knows the rivers and the valleys and the depths of salvation. She lives, but she rarely drives.

As I drift back to the woman beside me, I call forth the optimistic protagonist. There, yes, there… I rejoin the moment, present once again. She has once again sensed the freshness of the thought. It lacks roots. It’s filled with supplication and limited validation, but the seed has sprouted.

Yet, she still sees the world as the puppeteer and herself as the puppet. External hands directing her actions all the while absolving her of any accountability or responsibility. The moment of eclipse fighting to hold on. Awakening, but her eyelids refuse to open.

I am reminded, “all things are ready, if {when} the mind be so” (William Shakespeare).

She is still caged in an unlocked cell.

Never remembering she is the one with the key holistically capable of setting herself free.

Day 141: The Lesson of The Offended Offender


FB_IMG_1492661654113

I do not get offended.

Every interaction is an opportunity to affirm who you are.

When the world becomes your classroom, everyone becomes both teacher and student.

Thus, you are either affirming the truth you speak or revealing the fallacy you hide.

Both are valuable.

Both teach a lesson to the pupil free of unwarranted expectations.

Day 139: The Inside


The only way to lead thyself is to know thyself.

It takes the willingness to know the good, the bad, and the indifferent.

To deduce the composition of the whole, one must undertake the calculations and evaluations of the individual parts’ summation.

Day 69: Real Love


FB_IMG_1487467505368

Real love invokes the need for abstaining.

Real love invokes words like duty and honor.

Real love senses deceit.

Real love preserves.

Real love promotes needs over wants.

Real love redraws the outcome.

Real love solidifies positions.

Real love cannot be conquered.

Real love can only be surrendered.

The evolution of self is predicated on the invocation of real love.

Identify then rectify.

Day 67: Sacrifice


FB_IMG_1486503271345

The lock locked.

The tie straightened.

The button buttoned.

 

The tear fell.

The heart pumped.

The pen signed.

 

The accepted challenge read,

 

If it would save someone’s life later, could you walk away, indefinitely, so it would?

If you could, would you have the wherewithal to usher in its unplotted course?

Day 275: A Prayer for Wisdom


fb_img_1473394734596

The dissection of wisdom.

Like most things in life, the first line is not the last line, except, maybe in poetry. {Inward smile}

Case in point: the dissection of wisdom

Pray for wisdom & our Father in heaven will give it to you.

True, he is faithful & his promises are true.

Yet, what is silently hidden in the prayer is the required response.

Wisdom comes through overcoming the insurmountable.

Wisdom comes through facing adversity with limited resources.

Wisdom comes through losing the one you love, to find, the one you need.

Wisdom like winning an Olympic medal is not easy. It requires dedication, sacrifice, conditioning, vision, and follow-through against all odds.

So pray for wisdom, but understand the prayer is the opening line of your favorite book.

Achieving wisdom comes through how you write the story.

The dissection of wisdom.

Day 229: People of Faith


FB_IMG_1469649914305

 

As people of Faith, we occasionally endure situations or people unnecessarily. I surmise we confuse longsuffering with the power of faith.

Jesus experienced longsuffering as he prepared the disciples to carry on his God News Message.

Yet, he cursed the stubborn fig tree refusing to bear fruit and suffered no more.

In both cases, neither were ready to produce. Neither had reached the time for return on investment.

Yet, the disciples were allowed to continue on so the message would be carried forth. The fig tree writhed up and died never to birth another fig.

Sometimes we have to condition our mind to understand some situations and some people unwilling to move must be left, because even though it is not their time, it is our time.

That’s why many are called, but few are chosen.

My experience shows the chosen rely mostly on Faith and less on timing.

Faith in understanding being called has more to do with being willing than being ready.

Day 185: The Offering

I did not learn, because I took the offered advice.
Sure, I listened.
I might have even been seen taking a few notes.
Yet, the learning came from living and not just listening.

Day 183: Distinguished Mirage: Cause & Effect


image

The true liar convinces self – the lie is real.
The lie becomes so real it covers the truth.
Breathing fire does not make you a firefighter.
Do not spew venom and call it a cure.
Venom is poisonous and can lead to an infection.
The antidote cures the infected.
Know the difference.
Then live it differently.
And, your life will be different.

Day 96: Sponge vs Broom (Knowledge vs Emotion)


DSC04553

Being a sponge when knowledge is the objective is an edifying process. Simply squeeze the sponge when the source of knowledge moves from objectivity towards subjectivity.

Being a sponge when emotions are on the table is a dangerous dance. You can trap other people’s feelings into your own consciousness. In this case, be the broom and not the sponge.

Day 93: Knowing

Ever wonder why mathematicians insist on having you show your work. Because knowing how you arrived at the answer is a greater achievement than knowing the answer.
