A Letter to My Readers

My dearest of readers, Though we may not always see eye to eye, I have set out to share words and philosophies of life that I believe to be of great benefit. These philosophies can be seen throughout my writings and other various forms of art. Through these outlets, and through my personal coaching sessions, my goal is simple: To…

Heaven on Earth

  I was pondering over the concept of Heaven on Earth–the concept of discovering paradise in this very life and what it means. It seems that it is something most people are striving for whether they acknowledge it or not–whether they notice they are or not. For if the concept of Heaven and Paradise is a…

An Honest Desire

If I had it my way, we would all go on to love one another and serve each other greater than a mother serves her child. That instead of dividing and hiding–lying and dying–we would come together and heal one another by smiling and listening–forgiving and healing–loving and giving; for I truly believe that all…

Bettering the Self

  Focus on bettering the self and everything else will fall into place. It is easy to point at other people, highlighting their mistakes and flaws, but when it comes to the self, many people are unable to see their own flaws and become very defensive as though they are without error. Many an erring…

Moving Forward

It took me awhile, but I am finally realizing how unhealthy it is to dwell on the past; for we only have today, and what we focus on today will affect our tomorrow. If we focus on the past, it will consume our today, and our tomorrow will look something like the past. If we…

Links on the same Chain

As human beings, we are all links on the same chain, and when one of us is hurt, it should hurt us all. And if one link is dirty, we should seek to clean it. And if one link falls ill, we should care to heal it; for if one link separates itself from the group,…

Father’s Day (a thought) 

I think about Father’s Day and what it means to be a father–what it means to be a father not by name but by practice. Anyone can easily be a father–anyone can easily be called a father, but to truly be a father in the true sense of it is completely different. A true father…

Easter Sunday

In my heart, I have a great respect for all people’s rights. Growing up in a multi-cultural family with different sides finding faith in different belief systems, I respect other’s religious holidays and beliefs, though I may not be of their same faith. Thus, I have a great respect for people’s right to practice the holiday…

The Veil

I find it strange that some people are turned off by the wearing of the veil. Throughout time, the veil has been a symbol of modesty and humility, as pious women who gave up all forms of vanity wore one. Beautiful women such as Mother Teresa, as well as her predecessor, the mother of Jesus, Mary, all…

Reading

Reading. I absolutely love it! You can learn and develop the mind so much by reading. I cannot get enough of a good book caressed by a lovely, warm, sunshine-filled day! I believe all unsolved problems stem from a lack of knowledge; for how can you solve a problem without a solution? The beauty in…

Go

“Let’s pack up and go,” said the lady to the man. “Go where?” The man looked at her perplexed. “Anywhere!” “Okay!” Said the lady to the man. And so they went, and they were happier because they did…

The Melody of Maia

I know an angel with eyes of the changing seas; Heart bigger than mind can conceive; Love beyond belief. I admire this angel as sand fills up time’s glass, And the days of life fly by oh so fast. I witness this angel growing into her enormous wings. Oh! and when she takes flight, Oh!…

The Reddest of Pills

  I popped my cushioned bubble to look beyond, And what I found was astonishing. My eyes burn from what they see, My heart bleeds; And this task in front of me, It is not easy; And this mountain I have begun to climb; It is very steep; And these eyes that see; They also…

Cursed

I am cursed like the vampires of the night; Cursed with this thing called eternal life; But blood I do not suck through these teeth, And love is still the nourishment I need, And truth is the language I seek, And empathy has replaced my greed; For all that I long for is eternal peace.

Today I Have a Dream

JANUARY 19, 2015 It was eighty-six years ago that an honorable african-american boy was born to the world during a devastating time for black men and women in america. At the time, his mother probably had little knowledge of the type of hero that would become of her then young son. With Black History Month…

Two Lessons

  The other day I overheard someone ask another what the two most important lessons they had learned in their life were, and though I appreciated their answers, I thought about mine, and found mine to be different. In my twenty-three years of life I have found these two lessons crucial to my growing: One: Anything…

Naturally Born

I think listening and hearing out your fellow man when it comes to personal advice is important, however, in the end, listening to your inner-self should often take preference over the rules or advice of another. Especially, and always, when it comes to acting justly. After all, it is the natural instinct of man, if listened…

EGO = 1/Knowledge

I have begun to realize in my recent years that the letting go of the ego may in fact be the greatest challenge of one’s lifetime. It is a challenge that I find myself facing on a moment to moment basis, falling ill at times to its masterful trickery as I tragically defend my lowly rights…

Humility

I do believe that in the separation of mankind lies its greatest weakness; for if all of man were to stand as one, we would find a peaceful unity greater and more powerful than all of the militaries of the world combined. It is pitiful to see how we break off into cliques, sects, and…
