Initiation by Imagination- Lost story of Gye

“Elder we hear many stories in Gye-Nyame, but very few about Gye himself.” I stated as we sat in the shop drinking coffee and smoking hookah. This elder was hard to catch up with, and even if you caught up with him you were not guaranteed to be blessed with a conversation. So I planed to take advantage of every minute that he blessed me with. “You are right young man there are not many stories about Gye that we share, but they do exist, and at the right time they appear to those who earnestly seek them.” the elder said as he sat back holding the hookah stem enjoying the flavor he had chosen. “Elder will you share one with me?” I asked hoping for a yes... “Young man it will be my pleasure, I have heard a lot about you and the work you have been doing in the tribe, so I feel it is time for you to get more info about our mythic founder.” He then passed me the hookah, and took a sip of his coffee. Looking at me very seriously, “make sure you take care of this story and do not pass it to

Still Dreaming

  Still Dreaming I woke up excited my spirit still ignited aligned my passion with purpose now my dreams are invited. I'm moved by the minutes amazed by the hours held captive by living this life we call ours. Held hostage by my hopes and shackled to my dreams my wishes turned to plans now my plans have turned to schemes. No daydreamer am I for simple wishing cannot thrive. One must act and one must love for lifelong dreams to stay alive. One must risk it all and chance the fall lose it all to gain it all overcome the circumstance of happenstance by standing tall. My light is still beaming my eyes bright and gleaming. I'm humbled and hopeful yet happy still dreaming. Preston J. Harrison

Political Agenda

Political agenda My disdain for politics maintains the rhetoric from liars and heretics all breeding new lunatics. Same melody new lyrics new action but same spirit the only reason I fear it is knowing the truth when I hear it. I may pic the poison but brew my own elixir. The lessor of two evils is making myself the fixer. Finding them as the problem and us as the solution. The union of church and state is governmental pollution. I found myself as my savior and found my family as church I find my friends congregating around a basket of perch. I raise my kids from my morals and raise my glass to my bliss. I raise my shades to the sunrise and raise my voice when I'm pissed. I'll raise a question for thinkers the politicians I say to: for those of them that think they're GOD who do you pray to?

True Passion burns deep within a shallow chest concern for conditions and worry turn to jest i've tasted my potential and seek the very best my reign is early burdened with the plight of others lest my jewels be spread my bread made broken promises fulfilled of old thoughts I've spoken fate no myth,new coin old token dreams made flesh by words I've spoken yield not to fear the old ghost is an illusion he's fiction made fact a campaign of confusion unreal seen real forms spiritual delusion when faith is corrupted by a cowards intrusion Where Love is real no fear can stand No dreams may die on faithful land Thoughts are gold when destiny is grand When Love is real no fear may stand.

Belief short circuts

Belief is a powerful thing. It is so powerful that it can short circut the mind. Belief overrides our logic, reason and everything else dealing with the mind. Belief can turn the most intelligent and educted into babbling fools. If you don't believe me just bring up a discussion that hits people in their heart and watch the arguments you get, and if you are able to escape with your life. You will understand what I mean. I'm not writing this to get you to look at other's beliefs, but to challenge you to look at your own beliefs. Take a good look at your beliefs and see if they fit into reality. Most importantly look at your beliefs about yourself and your abilities. Are you living your life the way you should and want to live your life or are you living your life in accordance with some of your false beliefs about yourself. Ask yourself key questions and challenge what you believe about yourself, the world you live in, about your God, and etc.. When you ask yourself som

Thinking Board

A new tool I am working with is what I call a thinking board. It is basically a board that is placed on my wall in my bedroom where I can write down and mind map new ideas. This tool can come in handy for all those on the Journey if you already don't use something similar (journal). This gives me a place where i can sketch out quick pictures, short statements or mind maps as they hit me. I use a board and erasable markers to help me bring my ideas and inspiration alive. These colors and the space gives me the ability to lay out and develop my ideas rather than just hold them in my mind. What i have noticed how once i started the ideas have began to take on a life of their own. Because they are visible before i go to sleep and wake up i can revisit them often and freely add without worrying about any outside criticism. This board also serves as a place where I can put up goals that i personally want to program into my mental hard drive. i use the board to help me focus my mind on w

Starting Small Habits

"A journey of a thousand miles begin with one step", is a quote I often refer to when I feel like I am stuck. I often like to look at these words of wisdom, but sometimes I forget the power of these words. Not only does a journey of a thousand miles begin with 1 step, but so does a a short trip to the corner store. All of life's action begin with a small step. When we think about it any major change that we make in life starts with small steps or better yet by creating small habits that enable us to use the power of leverage and momentum to move us to where we want to be. My recent studies have led me to looking at quantum physics, and from looking at this amazing science, I can clearly see the power of the small. We often overlook the power of the small, bu many of us have experienced this power in our personal life, both negatively and positively. For example if you have ever experienced the bite off the cold or flu virus you know what i am talking about. This small


Sometimes I get discouraged... I have heard this over and over again in my studies, and being on this Journey, I have  felt it. This feeling can strike at the strangest time, but I like those before me I need to push on. I am in the beginning stages of writing another book. The Idea came to me complete with a title and the first thing that hit me was the feeling that accompanies discouragement and self doubt. The negative question began to hit me from the inside as well as the outside. The book will be about the Journey to success, although I have dealt with this topic in my other books, this book will deal with it more directly and be more universal in scope. The first negative thought hit me and tormented me for the first day, after I put the title on my thinking board (will speak on the "Thinking Board" in an upcoming blog). The question was what gave me the right to write about success? I was embarrassed by the question and images of other people asking me the same questi
