STAY WITH ME

Why are we so emotionally affected by other people’s opinions, sensationalism and worldly norms? Simply put, mind conditioning. For instance, we’re told what to buy, what to invest in, what to eat, how to look, what’s new and trending, what success is or isn’t, what’s important and of course whose important!

With times changing swiftly, we often get confused as to who we are, why we are, and our overall purpose in life. Mind blowing to say the least! Only here’s the issue, the results are of confusion, discord and comparison. Which ultimately leads to personal indifference, thus suitable ground for mental conditioning! When a person reaches the point where they’re mentally exhausted, hidden in fear and or judgement, that they coward behind a mask of denial, they’ve unknowingly submitted themselves to mind conditioning.

In this, the fall back results in the relying on a others to lift them up, hence “others opinions, sensationalisms or worldly norms.” Only issue is, people are hurting! You’ve been hurt, I’ve been hurt, they’ve been hurt, but often we don’t speak of it accordingly. We simply ignore from within as we were taught and think ourselves it’ll just fade away. Moreover, relying solely on surface level imaging, why? Mind conditioning. People fear what they can’t see but often bury unresolved issues so deep, it haunts them to seemingly no end. This is why it’s said “our greatest enemies are – ourselves” but that’s a lie, you are not the enemy. Our greatest enemy is the wickedness of a sinful nature, nourished under the guise of worldly norms and manipulation , but it doesn’t end there for we have repentance!

At any given moment in our lives we can at our weakest hour, resist the temptation, the conditioning and yes; the fear. The devil is in the details of our minds, the details of hidden guilt, worry and hate, but before any of this was applied as worldly conditioning, we were created in God’s image, favor and mercy. You are not lost in mind, body or spirit!

So let not the conditioning of your mind be the resting place for others “opinions, sensationalism or worldly norms.” Remember who’s image you were created in! Remember that life was spoken into you! And trust, before any forms of darkness or conditionings were ever burdened upon your mind, eternal words were spoken. As such, and never to be forgotten, for deep within the creation of our spirit, God whispered; “stay – with – me.”

BALANCING ACT

Balancing “ACT” indeed. Life should not be a staged play for the abused or the pacification of others. Don’t allow the dangling of a “golden carrot” to mislead or corrupt your destined path. In this, the blind would be a reflection of a failed society, not living up to their blessed potential. True balance is within IQ+EQ+SQ which results in the sum total of one’s 3Q. Innergize your life Mind. Body & Spirit! 

Golden carrot? Can you remember the picture of the farmer dangling a carrot in front of the horse to pull the wagon? The horse works seemingly all day chasing the reward of the carrot, only to be controlled by another’s personal gain or intent. Question, are you following your dreams or someone else’s carrot? Are you following money, power and respect but deviating from your path of true life fulfillment? Balance your mind and you’ll find that your greatness is worth more than all the gold in the land. INNERGIZE!

MAN ABOVE MEN

Purpose Driven

The purpose of man’s life is to tend the garden of earth. It is our “life’s work” to make suitable the land for God’s greatest creation; the woman. For within the woman holds a blessed covenant, hidden from man which is the essence, the purpose and meaning of life. She is the breath! Heaven on earth walks amongst us, for eternity dwells within her heart. Love her unconditionally and tend your purpose well; man above men.

To Whom This May Concern

(Responding to a thought leader on social media, I was asked “how can we master mind over matter?” This was my response).

To master “mind over matter” we must first define or try to clarify the differences between people’s ideas, understandings and knowledge of the terminology (matter & mind). To clarify “people’s anything,” is to first accept the limitations of others thought processes, socioeconomic upbringings and cultural/environmental influences. 

That said, we cannot fully speak on another’s understanding. What we CAN do, is deduce how we (individually) on a personal/spiritual level, relate to the awareness and teachings of universal laws. In this relies the first step to mastering “mind over matter.” Consider the terminology first:

Matter: Regarding what we acknowledge as particles, combined elements and physical substances that takes up mass or space within this reality.

Mind: A fragment of consciousness which holds an eternal power that transcends “all” physical substances i.e. matter.

For instance, your temple/body is presently in the form of a solid matter. It has weight, it takes up a certain amount of space and is the sum total of atoms, chemicals and biological elements that’s conducive to the sustainability of life. 

Although the body exists of solid mass and mass defines as “matter,” human beings possess the ability to communicate or transcend out of its mass by way of speech, vibration, thought process, belief, emotion and faith.

The other terminology differs as such, “Matter” is used as a factual statement or circumstance, often as conclusion within interpersonal communication, i.e. “as a matter of fact, in my opinion politics is a distraction.”

Getting back to the body, the body has limitations but the clarified mind is free! If one could tap into the power of the mind, they’d possess the ability to master “mind over (all) matter” but this is not the way of the world. Most people spend the best of their lives trying to master others, trying to master money and ultimately trying to master life itself. 

This attempt or understanding of mastery is rhetorical and frivolous at best. Life was not created for the idealization of man to master but rather live and flourish within the environment given. This is why the eagle captures the snake. 

The eagle has no limitations of mind within its environment, clarity or purpose. Hence, the eagle by way of embedded instincts, has mastered “mind over matter”.

(Here’s what I didn’t say)

Obviously, we as human beings are embedded with intuition, spiritual gifts, wisdom, great purpose and much more but we (most) do not follow the course or purpose of our creation. Unlike the tree, the insect or animal (yes, they all have consciousness), humans are the only species on this planet to be led or choose to leave their God given purpose or path in search of idealistic wonders, desires and or riches. In this, one cannot master mind over matter nor environment or even self, being one has opted out of his/her created purpose. Can a fish master the land? Can a bird master the ocean? No, and I’m sure they don’t care to being the environment is not conducive to either’s created purposes. And here’s the thing, man has dominion over the animals within the land and sea, but fails terribly when it comes to the mastery of self. In conclusion, let’s ponder for a moment, why even ask the question “can we master mind over matter,” because if we could, we’d probably corrupt, destroy or monetize it as with all other attempts to control God’s natural resources. Think about it.🤔

*CHECKING IN

At the start of this year I posted . . . 

“As of 2019, instead of investing on ads, marketing tools and master classes, I’m going to help, raise up and invest in my family and friends . . .” And also “If I do this correctly as well as faithfully, I expect to get kicked off of social media sometime this year!”

Here’s the update, the return in family, friends and community has been absolutely mind blowing! No money gained but my goodness the rewards of health, wealth and opened doors are that of miracles! 

Clearly social media hasn’t deleted me yet, but I can tell I’ve peaked the algorithm’s interest! It’s all a chess game now and even though they own the pieces, I/we hold the table, which upholds the game board. 

And at any given time, we can fold up table, visit each other, write a letter, shake hands, meditate or give a speech (per our constitutional right), without censorship or targeting of collective media bargaining. In this no *OI (outward intelligence) can chart your course, manipulate your mind or simulate you future. ✅ mate

Think about it, don’t share, text, post or speak of it; just think.🧐

ME MYSELF & YOU – “THE SECRET,” REVEALED.

Me: a shared interpretation that coexist by the acknowledgment of you and I, based solely on the outward characteristics that I display.

Myself: Who I believe to be as a result of cultural, societal and environmental impact. Thus, collectively embracing and filtering through the experiences of life, opinions and acceptances.

You: You are a reflection of collective thoughts, actions and displayed personality traits others or I perceive and accept to be true, but often manipulated by the shadows of insecurities or fear.

If this is true even somewhat, It beckons the question, who’s reflecting who? Does it explain the cliche “beauty is in the eye of the beholder?” Does it shed light on who we look up to, dislike or model in behavior?

This is why It’s so vitally important to love yourself, because to truly love others and become the greatest version of yourself, you must first embrace your worth!

Otherwise, your perceptions of negative self will reflect upon the world, the society in which you live and the people closest to your dreams, goals and lifestyle.

In short, do you want the attraction of abundance, success and or acceptance? Then change any form of negative reflections from within and start by loving yourself first, not money, nor power or the control of others. Upon this you can faithfully build and receive upon your blessings. Do not thwart the very purpose of your existence.

This is but one of many reasons we’re instructed to “love thy neighbor” (Matt 22:39 KJV) and to “do unto others, as you’d have them do unto you.” (Luke 6:31 KJV)

With that said, if one’s actions, displayed characteristics or personality traits are truly a reflection of self, then the world is not to blame, but rather the enemy from within i.e. me, myself and I not you, they or them. In this, the law of attraction can throughly be explained within the reflection of one’s self worth.

UNDER THE MIGHTY OAK

To be awakened, is far more frightening than your worst nightmare clawing into reality. Being enlightened doesn’t equate to a leisurely walk in the park. What we believe is love, couldn’t be farther away from the truth and money is without doubt, the second greatest lie. The law of attraction is the dangling of a golden carrot, yet serves great purpose and mindfulness is an internal stroll within the valley of the shadows. The more you learn the less you know, until being becomes the precedence of your life. Awake; quietly.

THE MESSAGE ON THE WALL

“Reggie was here! aka or bka fear!” 

Did you know the shortest distance between you and the barrier of your fear, perception or wall, is forward straight through? To stop and ponder the shear greatness of its height, darkness of depth or vastness of width only beckons worry, which then becomes the mass of one’s perceived reality.

Make yourself small, submit within the humbleness of your breath and walk through the darkness of manifested doubt. In this begins the filtration of the spirit, passing through the valley of the shadow of your deepest fears. Heed not your feet, lest the mind begins to wonder. And remember the promise, for on the other side awaits the light of glory.

Otherwise, peace be still until the calling of your heart screams so loudly, that it becomes the clarity of your spirit. Rise, rise and rise again just as you are! Now walk, stumble or crawl into the light of your created purpose. 

Know this to be true, being once upon seemingly an eternity “I was here!” Said my message on the wall, but by the grace of God’s mercy, not for long.

SOCIAL MEDIA CHALLENGE OR WAKE UP CALL?

Photo by Tookapic on Pexels.com


You have 24 hours to call and share a heartfelt conversation with each and everyone of your social media contacts/friends (separately)! Don’t leave a message, utilize interpersonal communication!

1.) Start with family members
2.) Friends
3.) Neighbors
4.) Coworkers
5.) Members of groups, church’s or the like.
6.) Those you’ve accepted from other countries.
7.) Lastly, the accepted requests just because they friended you or you friended them for shear numbers sake (i.e. “like for like! Help me reach 1000’s subscribers, followers or friends!)” GO!

Reality check🧐


Is it really about connecting with long lost friends, acquaintances/family or did the freedom of one’s social interest manifest into something more speculative? And try not to justify if you’re activity on social media comes with strings attached.

My 6 of 7 rule of thumb for the social psychological construct of media manipulation.

1.) I’m not paying for ads controlled by a so called algorithm, in which to continuously bombard my “friends” or family with marketing products, i.e. “for $31.00 you can reach up to 2,000 ppl. with this paid ad!” or “for $29.00 you can get a guaranteed 1,000 followers!
2.) I DO NOT accept friend requests for status, ideological or ego sake! Again, “I’m not looking for followers” to fund my ambitions. My purpose is not to entertain, distract or take from people. Thus, social media is not my spiritual, mental or moral support center (no entourage or cheerleaders needed).  
3.) I will never share my most intimate of goals, life choices, prayers or breakthrough ideas on any social media platform; period!
4.) I’ll only share what God puts on my heart to inspire, intrigue or motivate others looking for humbled truth or unbiased encouragement.
5.) My opinions are mine alone in which to develop, share with thought leaders, strategize, meditate, pray over and align properly within spiritual/biblical wisdom. This as opposed to subjecting myself to the heterosuggestive onslaught of controlled debates, persuasions and media manipulation.
6.) I will not judge, use sarcasm, ridicule or openly challenge a person, group or page for their personal or factual perspectives regarding rhetorical matters of worldly propaganda.

7.) 😆

So have you made any calls yet? Or did the autosuggestive barrier of personal opinion, rear its head to prevent a wake up call, revealing the REAL challenge!

*Here’s the thing, social media isn’t just about you, one’s celebrity status or kind heartfelt intentions of connectivity. It’s more about the manipulative focus of mass data retrieval for marketers and all hidden under the guise of 3rd party interests. Yes! It’s the world we live in but my goodness, are we that blind not to see that it’s our children that will suffer the most from this generations need to be seen, accepted or ego-massaged? Point is, our prayers are for God. Our hearts is for our families and those of need. And lastly, you have their number right? If they’re really friends; give them a call!
