As I Was Scribed

Just as your favorite song subscribes you to a composition

synched with metered rhyme and breath meditative like fire chants 

the art was on purpose and propaganda.

so  /

don’t be mistaken or fooled by a joker.

you have been allowed to walk and write within the words of yesterday’s scribes.

Dream makers sculpted you landowners and entrepreneurs,

educators and world travelers,

…If we have to live within the words we write

what does tomorrow look like?

and can our children survive without us?

 

Imagine Yourself Here…

For the first time this year I created a vision board.  I have known of them for years and have several friends who have used them in the past but I always thought having it in my head was good enough.  And it is good enough, but I must say looking at those words and images on a daily basis has changed my tone and purpose of my intentions.

Aim Higher! (take what you can?…)

Something is better than nothing, right?

This is one of those statements that need to be eradicated from culture!  NO!  Something is not better than nothing!  This statement keeps us from our highest potential.  This statement has been a crutch for mediocrity and a grand contradiction in the education of families and the progression of communities.  Such unconscious statements have survived our families and we keep them relative without actualizing the potential danger.

She Isn’t Who Appears

You can smile in the face of opposition when you know they are simply there because of a prayer being manifested.  And the yang of the situation is whatever their mission is.  When you remove yourself, detach from emotions, this very moment is what you asked for.  It is what you have imagined in your head, it is what you need.

I announced months ago to friends and family that I would be leaving the field of executive management.  In my journal I write what I want, I meditate these words to white candles and at the gym on the stair climber I imagine what I want.  I have to accept everything that appears in my life from this moment forward is needed to get me there.  Perhaps it will serve me as food or maybe a tack that stuck my in the side to help me later post a reminder message to myself.  Right now,  it has come in the form of another manager on her journey and ours have crossed.

She stands around 5’8 with horribly applied eye makeup.  Hair to no particular season or fashion.  We’ll call her Ms. Eyeliner.  Ms. Eyeliner can be labeled as a control freak or even incredibly insecure.  She is known to be vindictive.  She leaves her family every week to work with a group of women who could care less of her conversation or existence.  And she has it out for me.  Or does she?  In the moment of things, emotions attached, one can concretely feel this way and express it.  In silence I wonder if my father sent her?

We Might Never Seek God if…

 

…that relationship did not end.

…the electric bill didn’t come on that pink piece of paper this month.

…the ‘check engine’ light did not flash on your car dashboard.

…your daughter didn’t ask, “why can’t I see daddy?”

…you don’t worry why your son doesn’t ask about his father.

…people discovered you aren’t who you say you are.

…you didn’t become physically ill when you walked into your place of employment on a daily basis.

…your wallet wasn’t stolen on your vacation.

…Grandma didn’t get sick.

…you weren’t caught in a huge web of deceit.

…you didn’t doubt you deserve goodness.

…the day wasn’t Sunday.

We wouldn’t have to seek God if we knew that Goodness was always in our heart.

Always within reach or hug or to Give.
