Not Versus but And

One day I went to learn from one of my elders. This was over 20 years ago, but I still hold onto this memory, this was a critical shift in my life. This elder was very wise, and he proved it by his work in the community. Let's just say he was an alchemist. Long before people were talking about juice diets he had developed a line of juice and smoothies that could improve your health. I was blessed to receive an invitation from him to sit and conversate with him often. The idea that I wanted to share was brought to mind during a meeting that I was involved in.  I threw out a symbolic idea, that could not be grasped. Not that it did not make sense, but because the images I used were offensive and scary to some.  I dared to discuss a myth that I learned about Satan. I simply stated that in some cultures "Satan is known as the whisperer, and he or it had no power other than being able to present ideas (whisper) to the listener." Now to many of you out there that might throw y

Curse of Fortuna part 1- short fictional tale

My father was a different type of dude. He often referred to stories to teach me important life lessons, many of them I didn't understand until after he passed away. This story is one of those, and has proven to be the best so far. On my 18th birthday my father did not show up for my birthday party, but instead asked me to meet him at a coffee shop the day after. Being upset about him missing another major event in my life I showed up with an attitude. When I entered the coffee shop he was sitting at a table alone drinking and reading a book. I approached the table and took a seat, but he didn't immediately notice me. I sat quietly brooding, planning my verbal assault on this man that I felt never really paid any attention to me. Finally looking up at me, and smiling. " I'm glad you came, happy belated birthday." He said reaching his hand out in a gesture of peace. I shook his hand and for some reason my anger subsided, and he began to giggle. "Your 18 y

I just got word that my site was accepted as an Affiliate with Eric Thomas & Associates. I am glad to be able to offer those that come to my site some other powerful words, and merchandise. If you have never heard of Eric Thomas aka E.T. he is an inspiring brother from Detroit. I figured since I was having ads on my site that I should play a bigger role on deciding  what pops up for my listeners and and readers. Be sure to checkout E.T. and his message, I guarantee it will help you make the changes in your life that you want. If you need a sample look him up on YouTube, and make sure you checkout his series called T.G.I.M (Thank God It's Monday), I tune in on a regular basis and also have his app on my phone.     I also had an opportunity to checkout his 1st book, and I must say that I am impressed. I am waiting for his second book to hit audible so that I can listen while I run and ride in the car.  So take some time and check ET, his gear, and his books just click the pic,

Stop Beggin

Image
Stop begging to be relevant and make yourself relevant. Give yourself permission to be what it is you want to be. The fact is that we are all on a piece of dust (earth) whirling around a small flame (the sun) through an Immense void. One wayward cosmic wind and we will be blown out into the Infinite cold of empty space. We all are given time to live, but some of us chose to waist it, while some of us decide to build with it. The question is what are you doing with your time? Are you beggin others to recognize you and your gifts, or are you out doing things worthy to be noticed. The world is so monochromatic, that all you have to do is shine and be you and those that are tired of the "same old, same old" will find you.

On Purpose

Image
Stop surviving and start living. falling from one event to the other. Allowing outsiders to determine where you go, and what you become. Find your purpose and be on it.

The Journey Continues

Image
A hard truth for some, but a very present and sad reality for others. Here at the Journey we strive to bring the truth, as uncomfortable as it can be. The fact is that we are in an economy that feeds off of our labor but refuses to pay fair wages. Every company is in a race for the bottom, and the measuring tool that is used is the reduction in the pay and care for employees, or should I say slaves. Many of you may feel that this does not apply to you because you are not black, but the modern day slave machine does not care about your color. So continue to stay on your treadmill or get to running for freedom. Hopefully I will see you on the Journey, and we can sit and rest and encourage each other, but I can no longer afford to wait for yall I'm gone. Nuff Said Peace and 1hunid years

The Downside Of Hope

Image
Be careful of hope peddlers that will sell you on the power of hope alone. Hope to become active needs the power of our courage to bring it to life, or it will become poisonous and destroy us. So in all your wishing, praying, meditating, and hoping make sure that you include a dash of courage to move you to action. Nuff said Peace and 1hunid years

Catch Up

Many awaken believing that they are owed the day, but those on the Journey realize that each day is an opportunity for  growth, and most importantly Greatness. This particular saying is one that I developed through my youngest sun. He rises early with me and seems to never have a problem rising no matter what time I awaken him. One day he was moving slower than usual and this statement came out.
