Late Night Hookah

First, before I get into my post, I want to send shots out to my youngest daughter who made it to the world on December 27 2012 at exactly 6:14... so from this day she will be Known as Ms.614.. I don't believe in coincidence so ms.614 or Sasha confirms that I am where I supposed to be and doing what I am doing.

Some may wonder why I promote using the Internet to it's fullest.  I suggest that everyone gets a blog, twitter, face book, spreaker, g+ and what ever us is out there. "My reasons are personal" (in my Vito Corleone voice)... Legacy ladies and gents. We are living in the most dynamic time in human history, and each of us have the ability to through our voice, writing, ideas, and etc. out into the world. We have been taught to stay quiet, and not share what's on our mind, but I am saying stop hiding your light. Shine for the world, for you may project the beam that may free someone. Stop worrying about those who don't agree with you or that you may not be the best speaker, or writer. None of that shit matters anymore, if you don't believe me just turn on your radio, or the TV and see what's playing. Mindless bullshit that is disguised as entertainment. You heard me, or read what I said. With all this mindless shit being shot at us and our children we have the right and the obligation to through our hats into the fight. It appears to me that the world is being run by demons, and people set on the destruction of this planet. Now I am not on that "conspiracy shit", but I am not blind, nor stupid. I can see when people are being led or baited into following something. The question what is baiting us and where is it leading.
Now here is where my thoughts may get a little spooky, but those on the Journey should be used to this coming from me. When we look into ancient history, myth , and ritual we can see the road map. We are being led to a metaphorical alter for sacrifice. Now I won't go into the specifics of who the alter belongs to, but I will share with you this fact... the best type of sacrifice and most powerful are those that go willingly. When you willing step up to an alter offering your life,mind, and or spirit you empower the ones that are making the sacrifice. You empower what they believe and solidify there followers behind their cause, belief, and or deity. This is not new, this shit has been going on since before the beginning and will continue long after it is over. Your mind is the ultimate prize, so guard it with all your might. Don't allow your self to be led by the nose like a beast to slaughter. wake up and fight....
This is why I am telling you to use this weapon called the Internet to your advantage while you can. Get your thoughts out there, and help change this shit around. The world is big enough for all of us, and there are enough resources for us to live comfortably. As humans we are innovative enough to do these things, but we are so busy being led from fear to fear that we can't see the truth. We are involved in a global system that eats its young. it steals minds, and soul energy so that you can make a better unthinking robot. Then you surrender who you to be what this world wants you to be.
"Fuck That!"
I started the Journey to help people see who they really are, I send my thoughts out to those that are doing the same or at least looking for something different. You are the most powerful being in the Universe, but you are scared of this fact. You have been stripped down wo/man rather than being a Wo/Man. You have sold your soul for a bag of silver, and didn't even haggle about the price, because you believe that you are not worth more than some nickles and dimes. I am here to tell you that you are priceless, and should not sell your self short. Look back over your life, and remember the miracles that happened through you. remember those moments where everything made sense to you. This world's system is designed to beat this out of you... it's what we call in the street "Game"... Here is how it works...
1. pick your target
2. make them feel comfortable around you
3. slightly build there esteem with gifts
4. get them dependent on you
5. allow them to get attached and then attack their esteem and beat that shit down until only you can lift it up
6. now you got a slave that will do your bidding
 This is the simple shit (BASIC PIMP AND HO SHIT) that is being run on us by the system. It is a predatory mind-state, but here is where it is weak. This process can't happen without the perp getting just as attached as the victim. You know like the ancestors taught "you can't hold a man or woman down in the mud without getting dirty yourself". So the perp gets attached and their esteem and power is connected to the victim or victims buying into the cycle. Once the victim brakes the cycle and frees themselves from it, the perp suffers in the same way that he/she/it wanted the victim to suffer. Their power collapse and they begin to doubt and "Things Fall Apart"... They may resort to violence to get a sense of power back, but the feeling will be fleeting, and from that time on they will always harbor doubts about their true power.
The message is simply stop being a sacrificial ho, stop going to the alter of foolishness without raising your voice and speaking your mind. Even if you die your thoughts will resonate through time and space and touch others.
Now Back to why I encourage you to use this Internet and all the little gadgets that go with it. We are responsible to speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves, and the Internet gives us a platform to protest and rebel not just locally, but globally. What will you leave for those who come behind you. What ideas will you leave to guide them to their destiny. Don't allow your children to be led by fools who believe in "nothing ideas" that are based on what we call in Gye-Nyame the "Unbalanced 7" (fear, envy, pride, greed, sloth, lust and anger I will discuss these in an upcoming blog and podcast) these lead to destruction. Let your voice be heard and your sanity to shine through this madness acting as a light house in stormy seas. Stop giving your thought energy to others that just use it to build monuments of nothingness, for no other purpose than to fatten their bellies, live in big houses, and waste  the worlds resources.
Join me on the "Journey", and I am not talking about just reading my articles, and listening to my podcast. Hell do your own thing but seek truth and when you get nuggets share it in your own way. If you want to contribute to what I am doing by reading, listening,watching, and even purchasing I welcome you, but that is not the main reason I do what I do. If you reflect on the pic of Ms.614, ms. Gigi, and +Cleven Brown and also my older children Wisdom  ,+Ayzaia Williams+Yalonda Brooks , Kiesha, Yavaye, Gene, +Lotus Blossom , Jesse, Brian, Kareem, Mamu, Ricardo, Ron, Durrell ....... I can continue listing my children, but you get the idea. I am leaving legacy, and if I dont challenge the sheet streaming over the radio and children I would be betraying those listed and the ones not listed.
Nuff said
Now I return you to the regular scheduled bullshit....
Peace and 1hunidyears
(to all my children if you don't see your name it is a mistake of the mind and space, but not one of the heart. hopefully I have been a light in your life, and you will grow into agents of change, and truth)

p.s.s ( shots out to my grands)

What's new on Journey?/
continuing our writing/
and building future/

I would like to thank all regular readers and those new folks that have joined us. On this blog I try to make sure that my tribe are posting information that can link you with information that can help you on your journey. We write, and give you info that can help you move to what we call SelfMastery. So welcome..
When you read if you like and you feel like hiting the Tip jar please do. We are trying to figure out to make this a full time gig for some of us in Gye-Nyame. We had set a few goals for 2011 and we are within a arms length of reaching one. We are less than 200 hits from 10,000 views, we have a following of 13 and over 200 on FB. I did not expect to hit any of these numbers until August, so that means we are a head of schedule. as afr as publishing i have put out 4 books and i have 3 more tribe members that will be publishing within 2011-2012, i wont say no names because they don't know it yet (hahahaaa). This coming year i am looking for ads that touch my readers to hit links on our sites so if you have any ideas about what products would be more appealing to our readers.
this is your Journey as well, and if you have post that you want me to place or if you have a blog that you want me to link into our blog conglomerate (hahahaaa, i have many family members that are writing, and sometimes you be reading there material) and share your work let me know.
in this coming week i will be sharing chapter eight of "The Baba" so get ready the saga continues. I will be putting a Ha2ku by ha2tim book together soon so if you have some stuff you want me to cover hit me up. I also will finish the 2 books sitting on the shelf.
Don't forget about our training starting June 5th at my favorite spot gypsy cafe(hookah lounge).

Change the story

Nouns (album)Image via Wikipedia
Unhappy with life/
Be bold and use your magic/
To change the story/

Many are held prisoner to their story. This interesting to me. Those that follow the Journey know how important stories are as we travel the road of life. So we must move to control our narrative. This is not a new concept. If you have been paying attention to the news you will hear about and see the importance of the story (narrative). In the marketing world  I see that those with the best stories rule. When the story no longer fits the product either the story needs to change or the product suffers.
In the same way that coperations and countries strive to control their stories, you have the same power. If the story of your life no longer fits where you are or where you are going you need to simply change your story.
Your life in a sense is your brand and you are the CEO and marketing executive in charge of your brand. So move forward and change it if you need to. Of course you will have people who want to hold on to the old story, and that is cool. When you change your story you may not need to be with those who cant accept the new narrative you have laid out. I am not suggestion that you turn into a liar and create a bunch of events that did not happen, but you may need to look at your tale with new eyes and a refreshed perspective. Others benefit from you staying stuck, and it is not your job to satisfy them by being stuck with them.
You may not only need to change your story, but you may need to also change the NOUNS in your life as well. For those that can't remember what a noun is, it is those persons, places, and things that surround you. Your new story may require you to cut old ties and move on. For some this is or sounds impossible, but believe me it is not. It has been done and being done by thousands of people in recovery. The recovery communities around the world can act as a perfect model of changing the story of life and seperating themselves from the old nouns. These people have to change the story or take a new look at their story. They transmute or transform tales of horror, weakness, betrayal, pain, compromise, slavery and etc. To stories of victory and over coming. They boldly change the nouns of their lives so that they can truly become a new person with a new story. Our challenge on this Journey is to be able to do the same. So stop living the life you don't want and write the story you do, amd travel on.

writer's block - crushed and crumpled paper on...Image by photosteve101 via Flickr

Nothing comes through pen/

Inspiration appears to /

Have abandoned me/

As I sit down to write once again I have run into the thing known by all writers. The blockage that prevents me from being able to share my thoughts in the mode I like. The question I periodically face is how to break through this "writers block"? What works for me is to write about it, and then the thoughts begin to flow for me again. This time my blockage is not because a shortage of ideas, this time I am faced by the on rush of ideas all wanting me to express what it is that they want to say. I realized that although the thoughts come to my mind the ideas are not mine. They have selected my being to express themselves through me. For the last two weeks I have been presenting either old ideas or others writing because I don't want to leave my regular readers hanging, nor do I want to break my circle of sharing things. This helps me probably more than it helps the reader. Through this blog I have found a tool that assist me in my never ending journey to SelfMastery™. In order to publish something everyday I have to take time to sit down on a computer or my phone and write.  At this point and time this is a personal cycle that I have developed for myself (I highly suggest setting up a cycle or system for yourself as well). This cycle or system is mine and it helps me embrace the power that is truly mines.
Understand that this blog is the result of years of preparation. I make many mistakes in my writing, and this fact has prevented me for years from sharing my talents.  I have identified in blogs in the past ( I highly suggest for all new readers to check out my archives) that FEAR is a major block and takes many forms. What I have discovered through my writing and the many classes I have taught fear has many faces. In Gye-Nyame we call these the unbalanced passions. Every last one of them are rooted in our personal FEAR. The unbalnced or deadly seven as we call them are (once again for those new to the journey) fear (the mother of them all because all of them are her), pride,envy, greed, sloth, lust, and anger. When we break these down we can see FEAR is the root. For myself I was to proud for many years to publish because I was fearful of people pointing out mistakes or giving their input. I had to learn to move past that and I ended up publishing many of my works. Im still finding mistakes myself and having others pointing them out and it is not as bad as I thought. Actually it is making me better.
Back to my blocks maybe these blocks come periodically to make me better, and If I push through, maybe there is some type of prize I can find. Hell who knows. Now to you what is blocking you? What's stopping you from moving to the next level with your skills and talents. Don't overlook the importance of knowing which of the deadly 7 is blocking you. In order to overcome one's enemy you must know his/her/it's face. So take time today to explore yourself and this will help you push through your blockage as well.

the 50th law

NEW YORK - SEPTEMBER 10:  Musician Curtis Jame...Image by Getty Images via @daylife
Check out 50 cent... for those that don't know 50 wrote a book with Robert Greene. this is an interesting combination check them out as they discuss the book. it was a good read for me, and for those that work with Youth it may be a good book to motivate young people to read. Especially those that have a entrepreneurial spirit (of course I mean legal), because in this New Economy we have to prepare our youth for whats coming. Robert Greene is an excellent writer. He connects the past and strategies that people in history have used, to what is going on today. From personal experience, I have seen young people that you would never believe would read a book, actually steal his book from my library. I didn't mind because my goal was to get them to read in the first place. So check out video and let me know what you think.

The Baba - Chapter 6 part 2

Home Roasted Coffee BeansImage by FreeWine via Flickr
 Chapter 6 cont.

It was almost six months before Simba stepped back into Brother’s. He looked as if he was under a lot of stress. He checked the books, and reviewed a report on everyone from Wise. Then he disappeared again.
Wise came into the kitchen and called me outside. “Jay I don’t like prying into your business, but what is your relationship with Baba Simba?”
“He is my sponsor.”
“What!? How long have you been in our house?”                        
“I completed my initiation 6 ½ months ago.”
“Well Baba asked me to give you this.”

He reached into his pocket, and gave me a cowry shell. Cowry shells in the club represent rank. After my initiation I received one shell signifying I was a Brother in the organization. Receiving my second shell was a sign that I was being moved up to the level of Majestic.
“He asked me a lot of questions about you. Far as your work ethic, and I gave you good marks. It seems that he has plans for you. I was in the organization a year and a half before I was moved to majestic. Congratulations and keep up the good work. I will inform everyone of your promotion. Baba Simba also requested that you meet him here after closing.”
I was shocked and thrilled, but I felt uneasy about the after hour meeting. I had no idea of what to expect, and I did not even know how to deal with Simba or Baba Simba because it had been a long time since we talked.
“Oh, there is one more thing, he told me, “ you would not be working here any more.”
“What!?” now I’m really confused. “Did he say why?”
“No, bra you know we just follow orders. We don’t have to understand the whys, we just do. I trust Baba Simba and his judgment. In the last three years of my life I have witnessed him do amazing things in and with the Gye Nyame House so I trust his judgment.”
“Thank you Wise.”
I walked back in the kitchen wondering what was going to happen. I really enjoyed what I was doing. Now, the only thing I could do was wait.

Friday night Tribal Talk  (Hookah,tea, coffe, and good conversation)
Why do we believe/
That people have to be on/
The same page as us/

Why do some people believe that in order for us to work together we have to be on the same page. why is this necessary? I have found that when people stress that we must be on the same page to work or even conversate what they are really telling me is that i have to think like them. This is a very limited way to see the Universe. Actually what you are dealing is in the uverse, and have cut everyone else off because you are stuck on your page. Why do we have to be on the same page? Can't we be reading the same book (speaking of books dont forget to support the Journey by purchasing some books...hahahahaa), or even be reading the in the same subject. Lets open up our dialogs so that we can allow growth. Stop trying to change others, and work on your growth. Different perspectives are good, new ideas are good, and can promote your and others growth. So stop limiting others, because in all truth you maybe hindering your own growth.
By the way sending shouts out to sister Sheila (From "Are you the voice in my head" blog) check out her blog. Chilling with me in pic above as I was writing and getting my Friday night hookah. Come on out and join us at Gypsy Lounge on some Fridays and Saturday night we be doin that tribal thang. hahaaaahahaa

The Baba- chapter 6 part 1

A teacup on a saucer.Image via Wikipedia

Chapter 6
I have completed basic training and was assigned to work in Brother’s where I first met Simba. I also have been assigned to the male house where my training continued, but seems less intense. Every now and then I see Simba, but he has been traveling a lot lately. I work all day in the kitchen with four other brothers and two beautiful sisters. All are nation builders. Two belong to Gye Nyame House, and the other 4 belong to the House of MChugangi.
“Peace my name is Jay Kwabena.” Since I was the new face, I thought it would be proper for me to break the ice.
“Peace god”, one of the brothers said with a smile. “ I am Kofi, also known as David. What house do you belong to?”
“Im Gye-Nyame.”
“Um, I am MChugangi, and that is Leroy he also Kwabena. He’s MChugangi. The two sisters are Jasmine, and Zendria. They also are MChugangi as well.”
“How about the other two brothers?”

“That is Siles and Wise of Gye-Nyame.”
“Cool….nice meeting of you.”
I began to prepare an order of Ginko and peppermint tea when Jasmine came up to me standing there with a beautiful smile.
“ Is it true what they say about Gye-Nyame men?”
Trying to look as cool as possible because this woman was gorgeous, I could not help but to get lost in her smile.
“They say that Gye-Nyame men rule the nation.”
“Oh yeah….”
I started to smile at the thought of the flirting, but I should have known it was a trick?.
She continued, “but Gye-Nyame men are run by MChugangi women.” She started laughing and walked away. Needless to say everyone else was laughing at me as well.
“Bra don’t take it personal. She did the same thing to me and Silas. That is a ongoing joke, let’s say it is your initiation to the kitchen”, Wise said to me in a low voice.
“Why is it so many people from MChugangi are working in the restaurant, I thought they controlled the community activities, drug treatment, and non profits of the organization.”
“They do but all the businesses requires that they be licensed or have degrees. They all are working their way through school.”
“Um, I’m not surprised.”
We both started laughing. My job was pretty easy. I had to make tea, wash dishes, and when it was busy help wait the tables. I found out that everyone working in Brother’s had been in the organization less than three years, and had plans to move up in the family. Wise ran the restaurant, and was damn good. His goal was to move down south and run a chain Of tea houses for the family. Silas was satisfied and just wanted to move up in rank in the Gye-Nyame.

New economy

Initiative for a New Economy’s Diversity Suppl...Image by Office of Governor Patrick via Flickr
New economy/
forces us to change or die/
which choice will you make?/ 

There are certain things that we have to learn to survive in this new economy. First we have to realize that this is a new economy, and we will  never be going back to the old way. So if you are waiting for a job to be created in the way it has been for the last 80 years, my friend it is not going to happen. So here is a list of things that will help you in this new economy:

1. stop talking hustle, and get one.
2. best way to get and keep a job is to create one
3. join or build a tribe
4. learn to use Internet for more than fb, and tweeting
5. create something that you can sale over Internet.
6. find ways to help others that are trying to help themselves
7. work on developing multiple streams of income.
8. look for opportunities on the Internet, not your next date
9. be on cutting edge in your field
10. stop looking for security in a job, and find it in yourself and your actions
11. be open to change, and support it with your votes, and dollars
12. stop looking for perfection, and put your ideas and products on the market
13. learn to use your fear rather than being dominated by it
14. Get a coach (personal commercial), have someone in your life that can help you turn the bullshit that surrounds you into the fertilizer that will help you grow.
15. step out of your comfort zone, and stay out
16. invest in yourself and ideas that you believe in
17. stop depending on old ways of thinking (I need more degrees and certifications), and become a Master in your Field, by publishing your ideas
18.advertise yourself, and your causes
19. volunteer with, and for worthy causes
20.Stop looking for money, and learn to maximize your opportunities, and resources.
21. support other entrepreneurs because they are the ones that are creating the Jobs and opportunities that will take us into the future.
22.Don't be afraid to make mistakes because they will happen
23. See internet as Real estate: acquire space (property) sell it, or rent out space

By doing a simple Internet search you can find people involved in this new economy and whether you know it or not there is room for you. A prime example of people getting out here and changing the market as we know it is the growing group of African American producers who have stop shopping their movie or documentary ideas in Hollywood. they have begin pooling their personal resources from themselves and Tribe to create movies and shows directly for their audience on the Internet.
Whether we like it or not our whole world is shifting and those that embrace the change will be the one's that make it. because the days of 30 year jobs, and someone else handling your retirement are over. We are beginning to see the flaws in the system coming to the surface. Also the day of super large companies I believe is passing away as well. Don't you die with them.

Fear is back

click to get help over the hump
Fear is a weapon/
Used to confuse ignorant!!/
Are you ignorant?/
Ha2ku by ha2tim

Guess who has reared its ugly head again. Our old friend Fear, yep one of the deadly seven. Actually Fear is the seven (fear, envy, pride,greed ,sloth, lust and anger). fear manifest itself through each one of these seven. it comes into our lives and freezes us in place. keeps us stuck in things we know we need to move beyond. The good news is that fear is a signal that change is coming. we just have gird our loins and push through.
When we stand before fear we are presented with a gift that we have to take a risk to get. look fear in the face that it presents you and chase it away. because it is a coward, it, will not stand before moves made boldly. it will nag you from behind the battlefeild, and your task is too keep moving leaving it so far behind you that you cant even hear its echoe. move boldly on your journey. As Joseph Campbell says "The cave you fear to enter holds the treasure you seek", so what are you waiting for. Don't listen to the media, nor your friends because most the time the message send out feeds your fear, and fear keeps where you are doing what you always done. for those that don't know that is insanity and if we give into our fear we eventually go insane, and end up being a cog in someone elses machine rather than building our own.
So simply live your life and use fear as signal not as a block that stops your progress.
