"It Is Time For You To Leave"

Image
Before you read please check out the video so that you will not get lost, some of my readers are to young to remember the show Kung Fu, and will not understand my references.  What I loved about Kung fu was that it introduced me to different way of thinking. The scene that I am discussing today is the test that was set up in this fictional shaolin temple that determined when it was time for a student to leave. The test was basically the head monk (Master Khan) standing before the student every so often, and challenging the student to snatch the pebble from his hand. When the student missed he went back to his daily practice in the temple as a student. When he was finally able to snatch the pebble he and the master knew that it was time for him to leave. In other words it was made clear to the student and the teacher that student had no more to learn in the temple and it was time for him to continue his studies in the world. If only real life was this simple, and clear cut. Toda

The Final Goodbye

Image
We enter this life/ as flesh and bone on a quest/ final prize is death/ "As i stood over his bed looking down on him, i was at a lost of words. How do you say goodbye when you truly know that you may never see someone again in this life?" Although this may sound like a chapter out of a book. This is a true experience that many of us go through. With ageing parents and grand parents. How do we say goodbye to the pillars of our lives? These people who may have provided you with the foundation to become the beautiful person you are today. I am in this very situation myself.  My Grandfather appears to be in between worlds. His body seems to be slowly decaying and shuting down on him, and his mind and memory are gone. "He reaches out to the empty air grabbing or pointing at something that is not there and his breathing is heavy and rattles likes and childs toy." I cant help but remember this man as he was but the reality of where he is slaps me in the face. Sho

Spirituality

Image via Wikipedia Here is an old blog from 11-18-10 discussing spirituality read and then check out my podcast " what is spirituality ". Connection to all/ True spirituality/ Based on relations/ Spirituality is simply about relationships. Managing and maintaining relationships with the living, and those who have made their transition. The four legged, the rocks, the plants, the Earth as an organism, and mother.When we deal with these relationships and humble ourselves and understand that we are "No higher than a Blade of grass, and no lower than its roots", when we strive to feel this connection to all life, and work with it; this my friend is true Spirituality. If a person does not work to cultivate relationships in their life, I dont care how many books they read,how much they know, how many rituals they participate in or even lead. I don't care how many times a week they go to a service, its not spiritual, and the practice of spirituality is not t

Synchronicity in "A Thousand Words!!!"

Image
This blog was inspired by the movie "A Thousand Words" staring Eddie Murphy. This move is about a relunctant hero who is forced to take a Journey of self transformation. The lead character played by Murphy is a slick, savy, successful literary agent. Who has molded and shaped his life by the use of his quick wit and his mouth piece. He has built a life that appears to be perfect, but early in the movie we see major flaws. First the lead character is arrogant, mean, loud, overbearing, rude and a manipulator. Secondly he has what a ppears to be a young marriage with a young baby that is being raised in an emaculate bachelor pad. Thirdly the lead character has a mother who appears to be suffering from the early stages of dimensia, who confuses her son (Murphy) with his father, who by the way we learn left the family when the character was 8 years old. The story begins when Murphy takes on the challenge of recruiting a very popular new age teacher as a client. With the goal of r

Moving Meditation- song from SIMBA

In this show I share a moving meditation that I developed to help with workouts. I find away to connect this with my Simba experience for those who want more information about Simba please click the link. {*It is Simba time so please go to our Crowdrise Campaign site and donate to Simba the goal for our chapter this year is to send 25 boys, that's $ 11,250 for a camp goal and we still have our long range goal of $100,000 from Gye-Nyame Chapter to help purchase a camp ground for the Nation.} I know that most of our time is being ate up by the system so I am trying to motivate people to explore different types of meditations that can be done while in motion or under different circumstances. Of course this one will also be available on Gumroad, but until then  you can hit up the Tip Jar. There has been many medical studies about the benefits of meditation, but I wonder what meditation combined with exercise will do. Hopefully turn you into a super hero...hahahaaa enjoy Moving
