All Fear Is Outcome Based; No Longer Let Fear Stop You.

If you’re new here, you may want to subscribe to my RSS feed. Thanks for visiting! Fear is crippling. Fear has stopped masses from living life, more importantly, form enjoying life. When you remove yourself from outcome you place yourself in income. I would say most and close to all fears are based on outcome, our attachments to what we want to happen or what we don’t want to happen. Here is mostly directly correlated to anything but what’s currently happening. unless in the moment your life is threatened, then fear has a purpose, what if your life is and threatened, what purpose to sphere have? What purpose does focusing …

Prayer

Prayer: Is A Direct Conversation With The Things You Already Know, You Just Didn’t Ask. 🙏🏽

Not the thinking part, the knowing part. Too many people are in conversation with what they think, when simultaneously what they KNOW is there the whole time, they weren’t asking that part or giving that part a voice. You pray so often, you get so into it, that it isn’t 24 seconds of, “oh, thank you for this and this and this would be great, in your name, etc…” Its praying so consistently, conversing with that wise one IN you, higher self, true self, ego-less self (pick one), that your life becomes a prayer. Every step is that prayer of knowing. Like Hafiz says, “I am a flute in which …

Today Marks The Beginning Of A New Political Era

Today Marks The Beginning Of A New Political Era

Today marks the beginning of a new political era. America has rarely been more #divided, we have never before seen such a figure as Donald Trump assume leadership of the nation. Amid this turmoil, the community is grappling with how to best think, speak, and act in this fraught political climate, especially in regard to protecting the rights of minorities. My mission is to live a life that honors and upholds the well-being of others, to act against ignorance and hate in our world. May we keep our heads and hearts aligned over the four years to come. If you find joy and value in what I do and share, …

Inauguration Message To An Un-Presidential Precedent

Inauguration Message To An Un-Presidential Precedent

I Will Not. Not now; not ever. I will not drink from your poisoned well of lies. I will not dine from your banquet of hateful xenophobia. I will not breathe your noxious air, tainted by your sequestered life of detached entitlement and filtered by your carefully constructed moat of homogeneity. I will not stand by in idle witness to the devastation you think is the beautiful path to progress, right and good. I will not attempt to see through your angry eyes, red-rimmed and hateful, your snake-iris view of the world skewed by a past that has shaped your hatred of all that is unlike you. I will not …

Katy Perry PSA

Katy Perry’s Chilling PSA Against Creating A Database Of Muslims In The Country

  The video opens with the story of 89-year-old Haru Kuromiya, a Japanese American who spent her childhood on a chicken farm in Riverside, Calif. Sitting on a chair, with a shawl covering her small frame, Kuromiya talks about that fateful day in 1942 when government officials took her father. She and the rest of her family were later given tags and numbers to wear, she said. Then they were placed on a train, and Kuromiya, who would have been in her teens, found herself living in an internment camp. “We had to leave our business, our homes and our possessions behind, even our pets,” she said. “We were an American farm family …

On Self-Respect: Joan Didion’s 1961 Essay from the Pages of Vogue

Here, in its original layout, is Joan Didion’s seminal essay “Self-respect: Its Source, Its Power,” which was first published in Vogue in 1961, and which was republished as “On Self-Respect” in the author’s 1968 collection,Slouching Towards Bethlehem.​ Didion wrote the essay as the magazine was going to press, to fill the space left after another writer did not produce a piece on the same subject. She wrote it not to a word count or a line count, but to an exact character count. Once, in a dry season, I wrote in large letters across two pages of a notebook that innocence ends when one is stripped of the delusion that …

Patience Is Easy If I Let Things Happen

Patience Is Easy If I Let Things Happen

If I practice and master the art of letting things come, really just letting what comes come; I no longer need to be patient for the things I want, because I will receive the things being given to me. Just thinking “letting go” or “let go” eases the tension in my body, eases all the pressure i put on myself to get and get and get. I can continue to live and move towards goals and aspirations with no attachments to an outcome if I simply receive. In a state of receiving, I am getting what is coming, I have more room for gratitude and awareness to the things that are …

How To Overcome A Fear Of Asking for Help

How To Overcome A Fear Of Asking for Help

Asking for help sounds like the easiest thing in the world to do – yet for many of us, it’s the most difficult. Asking for help often pushes our psychological buttons. Perhaps, it’s a question of pride. We would rather people think we’re completely self-sufficient. Perhaps, it’s embarrassing, and an image of a panhandler comes to mind. Perhaps, it’s the thought of rejection and the imagined sting of a flat-out refusal. It’s different for everyone. While some people are quite uninhibited about asking for help, some of us feel sensitive about it, feeling mortified even if we need to ask for help with small things. Sometimes You Have No Choice …

Keep Someone So Busy They Won't Be Able To Wake Up Or Even Have The Time To Think About Waking Up

Keep Someone So Busy They Won’t Be Able To Wake Up Or Even Have The Time To Think About Waking Up

Thinking is necessary to waking up. We must think to wake up. We must think “wake up”. In a way, the time to think, the time to watch and choose our thoughts, makes thinking this highly valuable commodity only accessed through time. The average man doesn’t know who he is or what he thinks. He’s under the influence of all the business around him. He’s lumped himself into the common lumps of everyone else. Standing out takes time and thought, but he’s too busy for thinking. He’s too bombarded with thoughts that are forced upon him. Norms that are hammered into him on film, television, media, billboards, and guys dressed …
