Harmony in Self: The Liberating Power of Catharsis

Image
Harmony in Self: The Liberating Power of Catharsis In the grand orchestra of life, each individual carries a distinct melody that shapes our journey. However, societal norms often mute these notes, leaving a symphony unfinished. This blog post invites you to explore the power of catharsis – a concept deeply rooted in the liberation of the soul and the embrace of raw, genuine emotions. It's not just about letting go; it's about tuning into the rhythm of your inner world and allowing it to resonate freely. Through poignant narratives and thoughtful reflections, we'll journey into the heart of catharsis. We'll discover how the intentional release of emotions can be a conduit to profound personal growth and a deeper understanding of our authentic selves. From the disciplined silence of a military chant to the liberating shouts of Simba sessions, we recognize the transformative potential of giving voice to our innermost feelings. Yet, this is only the beginning. For those wh

OXYwater Explaination from Preston Harrison

Image
As one of the two founders of OXYwater , it has become increasingly clear that John Q. Public needs a baseline explanation of our beverage. Consider the following as my attempt to do so. First off, OXYwater was created to serve as the highest all-natural beverage choice for all individuals regardless of age, medical condition or fitness level. OXYwater is a truly unique product and should be considered by all to be a stand- alone beverage. It was our belief, as well as our intent, for OXYwater to dominate the market upon release and sustain that dominance by filling the void created by all of the “gimmicky” and “sugary” drinks out there. Upon completion of this article you will be certain that OXYwater is the best choice for those in pursuit of the ultimate hydration beverage and here are the reasons why: As most of you know, the government is mandating the removal of all of the previously mentioned “sugary” sodas and juices from many institutions across the country includ

First time in LA & 25000th vie

Beautiful journey/ In the city of Angels/ Eating by ocean/ I was blessed to be sent to LA for a training. The training is doing nothing but cofirming for me that it is time for me to begin promoting myself and the ideas of Gye-Nyame Tribe. Although I am getting good information and the trainer is good. We are doing nothing but going over someone else view of the world. So money is being paid for me to hear things that I already know and share with those around me. I often find myself in this situation and Im quite sure that many people that read this may also experience this. The wuestion that usually pops up for me is what can I do next to move my life to the next level. What am I missing that prevents me from being the trainer rather than the trained. I guess this will be something I ponder and continue to work on as I complete my next series of books. On to another subject. I would like to thank all my readers and visitors of my site. I just was blessed enough to have my

Imagination/ Is not bound by physics laws/ So let it run free/ Ha2ku by ha2tim We have been blessed by a powerful tool that has no limits, but many of us bound it up and ignore the possibilities. We have learned to keep our imagination within the bounds of this world rather than explore the unlimited scope of this tool. I am amazed at how we have been indoctrinated and imagine within the limits that have been set for us. It is the tool of imagining those things not known to us presently that have shaped this so called modern world. Take some time and explore the many realms of your imagination. Loosen your grip every now and then and let it go free. You may be surprised at what it brings you. Nuff said Peace & 1hunidyears By the way if you are scared to use your imagination at least inspire someone younger than yourself to use their's. Our world is in need of people that can see out of the dangerous box we have been placed in. Brother Ha2tim SelfMasteryCoach Nation

3 levels of learning

Image
Levels of learning/ There are three within our tribe/ Memory,mind,heart/ In the Gye-Nyame Tribe we focus on 3 levels of learning. The idea is that if we can explain the process of learning, at least the way we see it, this will make it easier for those involved to not only learn the information they need for our Tribe, but it will make life long learning a lot easier. These levels of learning were stumble upon by watching the growth of many organizations and individuals over 20 year period. The first level memorization is the building block for the next 2 levels. This is where we take in new information and become familiar enough with it to answer basic questions. The goal is to learn the information verbatim. We also use a scribing method to help with this part of the process. I have personally witness this simple method boost the confidence and information level of people in my Tribe, and in the many other organizations that proceeded it. After the information has been dig

From know on I will post one proverb per day. I have to change the study model for a little while so that I can keep up with my different group. I know some of you liked the 3 per day, but without comments or discussion Im assuming Im sending out to much. So here we go. For those who have been following the Journey the proces is the same, but for those that are new and want to develope your mind and spirit with those of us on Gye-Nyame journey here you go: Step 1 : read the proverb, for those moving to a new level in your life or Gye-Nyame Tribe, Scribe the proverb (this simple means get you a journal and write the proverb word for word. Step 2 : define the proverb for yourself. Get some insight ask questions because these proverbs are layered (they have lessons for different levels of life). Write your definition using the power of Kujichagulia to "define for yourself what the P or Q is saying to you. If you are a bold Soul share your definition on the blog, FB, and or Twitter

Perserverance-Ha2ku

Image
Image via Wikipedia I will perservere/ Step by step until I get/ What it is I want/ My son had a skating party with his school. He had only been skating once in his life. As I put on his skates it did not occur to him that he could not skate. He jumped up on the skates an immediately hit the ground. He then got back up caught his balance and tried again, but the second time he pushed the envelope. He decided that he wanted to go on the floor with the other skaters. At this time my fatherly instinct kicked in and I grabbed him and told him to practice on the carpet. He fell down 19 more times got up and moved toward the floor. He got onto the skating deck and fell down some more. He went to the middle of the floor and kept falling never giving up. He continued to fall down and get back up. I looked on in amazement. He did not care that people was watching him, and some may have been laughing. The only thing that his mind was on was learning to skate. As I was watching this proc

This is video that I made loosely based on an experience that I had on a farm. Please dont be offended by the title. Listen to lesson because this a story about finding oppourtunity in everyday situation. I am a firm believer in the statement "if you change your mind the world will also change", i will take it one step farther and say I know that it is true. My personal experience has taught this to me and i take great pleasure in sharing the lessons life has presented me with. I apologize for the quality of the video, but i wanted to get the message out, but my tribe is getting things together so that we can improve picture quality and sound. So feel free to laugh through because the video reminds me of a badly dubbed kung fu flick, but i have always loved kung fu flicks anyway and I hope you love this.

Gye-Nyame Steaming Journey

This a lunch I put together in my steamer. Actually it took me longer to post this, than it did to make the meal. It is simply some fresh eggplant,zuccini (which was given to me by a parent, grown in her garden) onion, garlic, radish, bell peper, and carrot. Later I will add a little spicey tomatoe sauce, and eat in less than 20 minutes. Try it out or share some of your steamed meals for me to try.

"Why the children" Ha2ku by ha2tim

Image
Image via Wikipedia Why destroy children/ Crush young minds in the machine/ No revolution/ Haku by ha2tim This blog i will use one of my poems to explain my thoughts behind this Ha2ku. I have to mention that my youngest boy is at school age and I have been struggling with the fact that I have to enroll him in school. I want him to learn and I want him to have social interaction, but have to continually ask my self is it worth the price. I struggle with the fact that I have not developed a mechanism by this time to fit my sons needs, so now for Brother ha2tim it is back to work. Building the necessary institution to support family , communities and nations. So since i dont have a school for my son I will have to at least build or find a supplemental network so my son will get plugged into true education (pulling the knowledge from him). Why do they want our children we are told to educate and to socialize but the truth is they are being programed for our demise this shouldn&#

Breeze in the morning

Image
Breeze in the morning/ Chills, and reminds of lifes/ Everchanging hand/ It is funny how quickly things can change. Just last week I was drenched with sweat and this morning the fall breeze hit me and chills ran through my body. Life is ever changing and morphing for us, and the best we can do is enjoy the ride. Life sends out suttle and sometimes harsh omens of what is to come. Prayerfully those on the journey learn to heed these warnings and prepare. Fall is the time of year that allows us to remember the lessons of the past and prepare for the future. Although it is not fall yet nature is giving us a warning of what is to come. Cold mornings lead to cold afternoons, and cold afternoons, lead to cold eveings which bring cold nights. Take this time to cool off from your summer cycle and reflect on the lessons that this dying year has brought. We are 8 months into this cycle. Which means this year has more time behind it than before it. What have you learned this year, what type

Conflict resolution

Image
To work through conflict/ we must open up our hearts/ To other folks pain/ By opening our hearts during the midst of conflict we open an opportunity for all involved to grow. We have been taught to shut down, but doing that can be counter productive. By shutting down we limit how we can respond and miss a beautiful opportunity to promote growth to others. By studying martial arts as well as sports I have been in many conflicts, and i have done my best work when I was open to the conflict that these activities provided me. Only by open myself up during these conflicts was I able to excel. The same goes in life. Brother Ha2tim SelfMasteryCoach Nation Builder HipHop Philosopha & Shaman

Boring meeting

Sitting in meeting/ Speaker speaks,and my mind drifts/ Like leaf blown in wind I have made it back to the world, and prepareing for the coming year. Putting my plans together and going through trainings. My mind often drifts to being independent and how can I begin to do more trainings on SelfMastery™, and how to build an institution that can help support all the worthy causes I am involved with. It seems that the things that I love are under financial attack. These are hard times for worthy causes. For those involved in nation building, warriorship, and on this journey you understand. We have to wrestle with the fact that the bottom line often clashes with doing the right thing, and since we do the right thing we get taxed. This appears to be the way of the world, but I have figured out that I am not part of this world. I have personally began to make the changes to help those things in my life that inspire change in the world. By donating time and money to them. I have figu
