Silence is restorative

I’ve found this to be a very powerful truth.

I can talk and talk and find no healing, nor resolution, but as soon as I shut my mouth, open my mind and keep my heart reasonable ( mind you, I didn’t say … pure because honestly who has a pure heart? Let’s be real).

Good against evil

We try to be as pure as we can by balancing good against evil, and that’s the best place to be in the balance where you are trying. I am scared to death of the extremes. They both create chaos in this world.

I am writing to release the tension I’ve accumulated over the last several day. Tough and heightened tensions I don’t usually experience, especially Seems like I’ve not been able to find simple solutions to any one problem I’m currently addressing. Saving grace is my positive perseverance and attitude.

So I find the positive my immersing myself into complete silence sometimes for hours. No radio, music, other voices, magazines, books, and my computer or phone.

I seek answers in silence along with peace for my own wellbeing. Without my peace I am not myself so I seek restorative silence.

Good Vibes

Positive Living takes conscious effort

I am big on positive thinking , even in the midst of not so positive situations. I don’t just say positive things, I exemplify it in my day to day. That’s just my philosophical approach to living.

Half full

I much rather see a cup as half full than half empty. It is deliberate and extremely beneficial to me holistically.

Speak Life

Life and death

What you decide to share with anyone is entirely up to your discretion.

Just know this, not everyone has the capacity to secure your best interest. Only you have your own best interest at heart, and very possibly a small handful of heart folks.

Experience is a great teacher, in my opinion. I’ve seen how knowledge and information either positive or negative gives people a sense of power.

What they do with that power is oftentimes the interesting thing. Gossip, inform or just learn?

I present unfortunately, too many would gossip and oftentimes wrongly inform. The elect few are mindful enough to learn and use knowledge to effect change.

Web of Destruction

There is just something about tearing down others which subconsciously or consciously gives people a feeling of empowerment? Not sure if that is the right word, but it creates a destructive turbine effects which does not stop until it kills, steals or destroys.

Your web of deception can do more harm than good

Being mindful of people, friends, and family members…their secrets and sometimes carelessly shared information, and just information in general is important in maturity.

The power of life and death is in your hands or rather your tongue, so use it wisely and mindfully.

You do not need to tear another person down, regardless of what they’ve done to you or another. Know the forces with which you are dealing and either stay engaged or disengage. Leave it at that.

When you build up it creates the kind of energy in this world you oftentimes can’t see immediately, but it’s there…in the smiles on faces, new beginnings, lightness in a step, giving, hope, rewards , physical wellness, emotional and psychological outlook.

Change your outlook/perspective and change your life

Everything around you looks promising and you can cope with changes. You seek to go outdoors engage more and more with real people who are experiencing life, not synthetic dreams on social media. You are unique and purposeful, therefore you live as such, and it’s not necessary to speak negativity into anything, much less another person’s life.

Heart Warming Times

Heart Warming

Friday August 31st, 2018

I’m on the J train, it’s crowded. People are on phones, reading books/just imagine, talking and engaging in other activities…like talking very loudly in between stations.

I’m reading a book My Trouble With Books by Roger McTair, when I looked across the cab at another commuter, she’s deep in thought and it occurs to me she’s making notes, writing thoughts….hhhmmm. What if we are conceiving snd thinking about writing the same thing/thought?? Wouldn’t that be…interesting.

What I See

Two people, strangers, seeing the people, the issues, the tears, the stress, happiness, love, anger, sadness…across the faces of the various commuters as the board on and off. Most people are aloof and disengaged from their feelings.

It’s the New York way, but this morning I could see her thinking, writing, musing as she watched their lives and as we rode together.

My Heart Moment

My heart warms me this morning as I am on this train, in the same cab, when the train stops and an elderly couple get on. The train is packed, and there are no available seats, so the young man sitting right next to me got up and allowed the senior gentleman to sit down. This happens very rarely. Men no longer get up for women, women do not get up for pregnant women, and no one gets up anymore for senior citizens.

You see this act of kindness and respect happen less and less every day.

So today on the 56th anniversary of independence of our great Republic of Trinidad and Tobago, this was heart warming.

My Week in Pictures 8.25.18

I take many photos. I’m not a photographer but images attract me. I also like to keep pictures for posterity. I often find myself poring over images, recollecting, and finding creative ideas. Even though life happens and do much more evolves daily, weekly, here are a few snippets of my collection. I have so much more.

The Queen of Soul -Aretha Franklin

Aretha is one true legend, a trail blazer who fought for civil rights for African Americans, even while being an entertainer. She was the definition of a hero. May she rest in eternal peace.

Kofi Annon- The Commander

I considered this gentle man such a powerful force. Another hero of mine. It was sad to see him leave us so soon. But may our late United Nation Secretary General, Ghanaian, Nobel Peace Recipient rest in eternal peace.

previous post** #theculturespeaks via @staywoke.tv – A high school principal in New Jersey is going above and beyond to make sure his students don’t skip school out of fear of being bullied. West Side High School Principal Akbar Cook said some students were being bullied because of their dirty clothes — which resulted in chronic absenteeism where they would miss three to five days a month.
