Day 140: The Anti-Social Socialite



I have determined I am socially anti-social. I like most people. And, quietly diagnose the rest. Instantaneously inspecting and segmenting out the best. Experience has taught me the importance of caution with preliminary tests.

 
When around my circle I genuinely enjoy the familiarity of completed jokes. The knowing looks across wood stained tables. I connect.

 
Yet, in solace, I am free. Here the jokes are funnier somehow. Here somewhere the looks are deeper. I am one.

 
Yep, a little more anti than social.​

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 137: The Response


FB_IMG_1492661560687

I have friends who are atheist. I have friends who agnostic. I have friends who are Christians and friends who ascribe to another religion or no religion at all. Their belief in a deity or lack of belief is not a prerequisite for our friendship to flourish. Primarily, because I understand the experience principle.

 

Reality forms from one’s experience. The attribution exists in a collective oration. I’ve discussed this before. The idea nothing is truly real until you experience its’ realness first-hand.

 

Yet, I know empirically that my God is real and when sought the deity shows forth as Emmanuel.

 

You cannot see what you cannot believe. You will not believe what you refuse to see. The principle of a harden heart.

 

If you take the cap off your beliefs, God will take the cap off your sight. The principle of the promise.

 

As always the choice is yours, but the response is not.

Day 135: The Underlined Reason


FB_IMG_1491942093798

There is a reason the caterpillar transitions into a cocoon before becoming a butterfly.

There is a reason little seedlings are planted after the last winter frost.

There is a reason you do not move into a home until it is complete.

In the past, I have contemplated the theoretical concept of playing dead without being dead.

Like most things, the understanding and application resonate with one’s perspective of death.

For some immobility is a form of death.

For others decimation of growth is death.

Medically speaking the loss of neurological function is death.

Ironically, this is not about death at all, but the symbolism of death’s characteristics.

I have observed, at different stages humans invoking death’s characteristics as a form of survival.

In school, we remain silent even when we know the answer out of unsupported fear of being wrong,

In relationships, we fabricate or eviscerate our feelings out of fear of losing the relationship.

In our jobs, we ride the assembly line even though we have already been assembled.

We fear the risk that does not pay off.

We fear the truth that does not reveal.

We fear the hope that does not produce.

And so, the caterpillar never becomes the butterfly

The seedling never becomes a rose.

And, the house never becomes a home.

Yet, change the perspective and the theoretical becomes the reality.

I know a king who was born a servant.

I know a servant who became a king.

I know a king who died a criminal but became an advocate.

His camouflage was a necessity to his survival.

The ruse surrounding his birth was predicated on hidden truths remaining hidden until their appointed unveiling.

It makes you wonder if he always knew who he would become.

You might even speculate if it came to him in the midnight hour.

Perhaps the helper showed him the way.

In any case, once he knew, he began to walk as he had caught the clue.

Until his payment was due.

The ideology bears witness to the theoretical supposition of the original thought.

Just because you can, doesn’t mean you should.

And just because you know, doesn’t mean you divulge.

Sometimes the greater victory is not in the now but in the latter.

Bridle the tongue so the mouth may speak.

If the caterpillar refused to hibernate, it would never become the butterfly.

If the seedlings were never nurtured, they would never become roses.

If the tree was never cut, the house would never become a home.

You cannot reach the finish line if you never run the race.

Day 233: Being Right


12795446_535592226615416_2341732149986467885_n

No human is ever 100% right all the time. None of the prophets were 100% right all of the time. The disciples were not 100% right all the time. It is okay to be wrong sometimes, for it is where our humility lives.

Jesus was even corrected at least once according to the written account of his time with the disciples.

Our mistake is thinking when we find or learn we are wrong that we should hide it. Instead, acknowledge it, embrace it, learn from it, and then let it go.

You are not God even though you were made in his image. An image is rarely an exact replication of the original.

Day 53: Am I Dead

Day 7 – Redefining Dirt (Innards)


Canyon 239

I learned something new the other day while watching The Taste. In the culinary world, innards are called dirt. I never knew this.

Prior to watching The Taste, all my encounters with the word dirt held a negative connotation. “Go wash the dirt off your hands, off your face, and off yours shoes”, your mother would say. “The people over there spew nothing, but dirt”, your friend or pastor might say. “His mind is full of dirt”, the prosecutor, might say.

Yet, in the culinary world, dirt is considered a rare commodity and a necessary seasoning for the perfect taste. It makes me reconsider the meanings we have attached to the word dirt in our lives, in our families, in our churches, in our workplace, and in our relationships. In the words, of Marcus Samuelsson a six times James Beard winner, I am looking for a little dirt in 2015.

Day 276 – Abandon Car


Image Proofs 137

Life is challenging.  Life was never designed for the weak.  Life was never designed for those unwilling to hunt and live off the land.  God’s creation for life on Earth focuses on the strong at heart, the strong at will, and the strong of mind.  Failure is refusing to acknowledge we are from a great power source and the same power seeps through every fiber of our being.  Weakness is a lie.  Weakness is a form of voodoo made up of old wise tales.  Weakness is a blackout of the power source within.  Weakness forsakes your royalty claim to the one who designed you for more than government handouts, pauper wages, abusive relationships, or anything hindering you from claiming your royal status in the Kingdom of Heaven on Earth.  Life can exist or life can linger on like a driverless car.

Have you abandoned your car?

Has your vehicle rear-ended or side-swiped someone else’s car?

Is your insurance premium paid up?

We walk aimless in our abandon cars rarely looking up from the passenger seat only to realize we ran out of gas and never stopped to refill.  Today, might be the day to revisit the gas station you passed several miles on your journey to nowhere, but hoping to get somewhere.

Day 275 – Boiling Point


Image Proofs 047

Everyone has a boiling point.   There is some obscure inane object, person, or situation capable of transitioning even the most nurturing person to simply boil over.  There is a place in each of us capable of volcanic activity.  There is a place in each of us few people will ever know or fully understand.  There is a place in each of us hidden from the world.  There is a place in each of us, once ignited is difficult to squelch.  There is a place in us wrought with internal flames waiting for just the right igniting.  It is a place, I pray you never find.  It is a place where both life and destruction occur.  It is a place dreams form and break.  It is a place hope is lost and found.  It is a place like no other.  Your boiling point is a place of solace and solitude.  It is in this place reality meets faith.  It is in this place your walk becomes who you profess outwardly and inwardly.  It is a place we avoid, but on occasion should visit at least once, to understand this one truth.  Your boiling point is not your breaking point.  Your boiling point is your restore point.  Your boiling point is an indicator telling you it is time to reevaluate your defenses and fortify your household.

Are you in the boiling point or fortification stage?

What are your plans going forward?

Are you willing to risk it all for what lies ahead?

Can you let go of it all for what rests on the other side?

Day 274 – Meditation Series: Writer’s Heart


I wrote this meditation on April 12, 1997 at 1:00 am.  Three years out of high school. Two years into life outside of my parents home.  I was more confused about who I was or what I would become.  I knew I held a purpose.  God began to place specific people in my life who confirmed a greater destiny than the little black girl for the south side of Dallas.  I held on to it all.  I researched various religions.  I dabbled in things I had no business dabbling in, I thought.  They all created the child of God I am today. They all helped me during one of the most difficulty battles of my life.  The things spoken into my life bore a great truth, which is still unraveling, today.  I have so many of these writings.  Surprisingly, it has only recently occurred to me, God’s Holy Spirit speaks to me in my writings.  And, so even when exhausted, frustrated, or otherwise not myself, I will continue to write.

WritersHeart

Life’s greatest challenges when completed become life’s greatest triumphs.  My heart weighs heavy this eve.

My mission statement for the day:

We are all on a trip, following different road maps, but to the same destination.  I will be ready to lend a helping hand to a troubled traveler today.  It will breathe new life into my personal walk home.
