I created this Blog to explore SelfMastery, help myself and others by sharing my poetry, insights, stories, proverbs, and hopefully learning from some of your responses.Join the Journey share your experiences and life lessons. Start your day with a sip of Gye-Nyame. Remember support the Journey by visiting the tip jar or purchasing a book. Proceeds go to help others move toward SelfMastery through my Tribe and some of the community organizations I work with.
Pardon the lateness, but the files with the effects are bigger than I imagined and this one took 2 hours to upload, so that throws off my time table and I have to wait for a break to post. Break time and today is moving in slow motion for me. I am struggling on the warrior diet, because my body is telling me that it wants to eat, but it is more of a want than a need. Yesterday I ate my meal, and could not finish it. This was shocking because I thought I was hungry then as well. Taming the body is a Herculean task but I am up for it. I know you are reading this wondering what does the warrior diet have to do with today's topic. I am discovering that I am eating to feel emotional lacks in my life. Eating gives me a sense of comfort. Like many of you who will take the Challenge, you will begin to discover new things about yourself, and you will begin to recognize where you are wasting alot of energy. Our emotions are the driving force in our lives, and if we don't learn how to harness them they will tear us apart. Now I need to make myself clear, I am not talking about shutting them down, and pretending we don't have them. I am talking about learning to use them, I dare to say even aim them. Yes your emotions can be aimed and utilized to push you toward your goals. Our ancestors did it, and our enemies are presently using it against us. When you don't have emotional control over yourself you leave a untapped energy source that others will strive to use. Groups have emotional energy as well and can be guided and manipulated to benefit others. This is what is happening to us as individuals and as groups. we invest energy into all sorts of endeavors that do not benefit us. I am simply suggesting that those that are reading this and in Gye-Nyame Journey should be learning ways to harness the emotional energy of ourselves, our tribe, our community, and others to move us to our greatness.
