Are we spreading the good news or are we spreading ourselves a bit too thin with media influenced propaganda? Are we providing what’s really important regarding news or are we simply sharing, posting and retweeting what the powers that be created to fill our sensationalistic soap opera cravings?

Think about it, from wooden soap box crates, positioned perfectly in our neighborhood parks, to the data based drama of scandals, lies, twists and turns stewing within instant notifications. Somehow, most have fallen into the mindset of enthusiastically sharing, potentially destructive information. From the nostalgics stories of our grandparents exercising their right to freedom of speech, to a meme with over a million views. From a time when people could listen without being censused, to our living room devices, blanketed behind a wall of controlled algorithms. What in the world has happened? By now one would think we’d have a grip on the situation!

Yet still, in today’s society, some sit back comfortably in the privacy of their wifi-ed homes and boast, “take that, I sent that to the whole world, now everyone will know the truth!” but the truth may only be what one has been influenced to believe and in that, only a small fraction of people will see the heartfelt post anyway, that is prior to being buried under the constant stream of newer posts, reminders and ads. To no avail though, being in most people’s mindsets it’s like “yeah! I got a hundred likes!” Sounds kinda like good news, right? Which is exactly why most remain content.

Only in actuality, all one did was tell the government whose side they’re on, and who’s in your circle of trust. Not to forget on the opposite side, where your stuck with the snide comments of your friends, co-workers or family members soon to blot you off their invite list, being you’ve voiced your opinion regarding a certain presidential candidate.

I know this speaks of my age and it should! I’m sure that more than a few probably don’t know what a soap box is and that’s understandable, especially since we’ve become conditioned to communicate digitally, but there is good news or should I say an awareness. What’s good about this awareness is, the future leaders of this world are currently evolving; rapidly.

They don’t use social media to create a digital footprint of their minds, orientation or intentions, they’re not bound by any third party entrapments, belong to any organization by membership, fee or bloodline. And they are definitely not a part of the created school structure we’ve been enslaved to trust in. They just are, they’re the future, and what they’ll share will be of benefit and great blessings to those that once was lost.

I don’t care to share or give much attention regarding the problems, issues and concerns within the powers that be. It does nothing for my purpose, spiritual growth or learning process if I waste time, obsessing over their blunders or successes. So I’m just going to continue to focus on myself, sharing the experience of enlightenment and learning from my own personal mistakes and achievements.

lastly, if you have a concern or problem with the powers that be, become a power yourself worth reckoning with, but not on their playing field. Remember to dance with the devil, means you’re already in hell, and there lies a song and dance, that’ll never end. Personally, I’d rather focus on the good news, that is the original purpose within the children of God.

It amazes me how most people work, live and play to the standards, expectations and opinions of others; it’s simply a massive waste of one’s time. As if  these others are the authoritarians over another’s personal life! For instance, God created you and I perfectly! Ushered in by his masterfully skilled hands and timed us just right to thrive and develop within this era. Not only to be and grow into who he created us to be in a timely fashion, but to keep our minds focused on him and not the wiles or concerns of others.

Yes, at times, heartfelt opinions, mentorship and the love of others best advice, is a much needed comfort. Only that’s not my point, what I’m speaking on is when subconsciously, people fall into the mindset and expectations of others; as opposed to following God’s will. With this said, who’s the authoritarian of your life? Who do you really work for, live, or play for?

Maybe a better question who is living out, working through or vicariously playing with your life? Are you on the perfectly time scheduled God has set for your destiny or are you wound back on someone else’s clock? This is why I say don’t spend, waste or invest time, money or mind into something non-conducive toward your spiritual purpose. Don’t give of your heart and energy to a cause or idea, not beneficial of your calling or for the need of others God placed in your care. Grow your family, grow in self-awareness and give what God has given unto you to help others. In this, allow your God given time, to be a time where you give God back some time. And in this time, you would have invested in time well spent, not for others but for yourself, your loved ones and your true purpose.

Our time is limited, use it well. Before spending (more) time on yourself, spend time with someone or something that can return a blessed beneficial reward. I get it, in today’s mindset we all need some alone time, a break or that well deserved vacation but after awhile, these could develop into excuses! What we need more than anything, is to be realigned with spiritual peace. Why? Because the aftermath of taking that so-called time away, we find that we’re right back where we started, dealing, living and hiding from the true problem. Know that a break is just that, a break from whatever your (temporarily) trying to get away from. Thing is, leaving the problem only to return is madness right? That’s like being in an abusive relationship, breaking up and leaving with tons of baggage, then returning back to the source of the abuse completely refreshed, with the mindset things will be different now!

Yes, jobs can be difficult, relationships with friends, family or spouses at times can be painstaking. Traffic gets ridiculous, water cooler talk makes no sense whatsoever and the constellations within the universe aren’t lining up the way we’d like, but we can change this for someone else’s reality right?. You and I can be a blessing in another’s life, why not? If we want it for ourselves, lets be it for others first and witness how limitless our time will become. Only here’s a twist, could it possibly be something uncovered within us? Maybe it’s the circle of friends we’ve chosen, the job or even a relationship we dare not think of separating from? Now we’re really getting into the troubled waters of wasted time.

Not dealing with self is the most detrimental of all, which is the enemy from withins’ playground, constantly reminding of past failures, mistakes and self-induced barriers only to manifest thoughts of crippling fear, all to keep one at a state of complacency. So are we really managing our time well or are we still just trying to figure it all out? Remember we can’t take a vacation from ourselves i.e. mental bondages, but with the love of God, we can face, figure out, forgive and forget, all that once held us back in spiritual contempt. Either way, we’re all in this together and how we spend time together, helping, sharing and loving each other will provide the best benefit to a time well spent.

God bless!

Personal Note:

In total humbleness, I love my life. I’ve lived, learned and have developed a heart for sharing my best in hopes of shedding light on spiritual and personal development. If it enlightens you, reminds you or helps you to seek for yourself, God bless. If my purpose in sharing it’s not for you, God bless just the same. Whether we’re on the same page or not, whether we consider ourselves lions or Lamb’s, trust me within the chapters of time, we’ll all want our names written, spoken and acknowledged in the Book of Life.

I know you are but what am I, says the man in the mirror. Ponder this for a moment. A person standing in front of a mirror, acknowledging through one’s reflection, a perceived image of one’s self, yet truthfully knows nothing about the spiritual workings within their mind, body or spirit. Seriously, think about it, what do we know of the mind, body or spirit? Honestly, little at best.

We only know what we’ve been told, persuaded by or have submitted to — as easily digestive truth. Recently, a philosopher begged to differ with me on this subject, telling me “we have immense knowledge about the human race regarding mind, body and spirit!”

I asked define we? He replied emphatically “the human race!” I smiled and said did you actually speak to the entire human race and come to that conclusion, or are you reflecting on the collective data gathered over centuries regarding advancements in medical science, bias historical evidence regarding religion and future technologies?

He said “of course, we have tables, charts and years of collective data which is core evidence of man’s evolution and advancement over time.” I humbly replied, “says the man standing in the mirror, convinced of one’s self through the eyes of the world.” He paused for a moment in complete wonder and said “hey, in the world I live in we do our best.” I smiled as he walked away, but again do we really know ourselves regarding mind, body and spirit? I ask this in part being most assume, judge or confidently suggest they know others, even though they may not fully have a sense of who they are themselves.

Do most even care, being they’ve accepted their reflection, personal perception or social contentment? I can’t answer this question for others or for that matter the world but one can ask, with all the advancements of our so-called human intellect, space travels, bioengineering and so forth, how is there still racism, sickness and poverty upon the earth? All this sensationalistic talk within society about personal self development, enlightenment and how to become a millionaire in five key steps is mind-boggling to me. Not to mention paired with all the “years of collective data” regarding the positive growth and accomplishments of mankind’s evolution.

What does this have to do with racism, sickness, poverty or personal reflection? Everything! Or better yet everything that is the essence of you mentally, physically and spiritually, being you are more than someone’s image, collective data or personal reflection. You are an in-progress, developmental masterpiece of God’s creation! Knowing this on an individual basis, while developing your spiritual senses are what’s needed to overcome loss of identity within this world. Know this, if you are blinded by the distractions of this world, you become a follower of its doings, if you become a follower you’ve submitted to being lead by the world, if you’re being lead, what world are you truly living in? I hope it’s not the same world the philosopher was referring too, being that doing our best, may not be actually our best, but rather a worldly image, reflected within the mirror they’ve provided. Think about it, because now the tables have turned. In other words upon my awakening, I know who I am and I’m more than a reflective image of worldly conditioning. So the next time you see a reflection of yourself, or you look in the mirror at God’s perfect creation, ask yourself; who are you?

*Seek thee out beyond the limit of complacent teachings and what has been given shall be revealed.

By Popular Understanding; the end quote

Footprints of The Mind


“Most aspire to be successful, in a minefield of needs,

But   money  over  mindfulness,   mines  madness   indeed.

Moreover, mined your minds’ mine in the mysticism of the blind,

May  you  find  the  hidden  footprints,  as   found  in  the  eye  of  mine.”

– Reginald O’Neal Gibson

At the end of my poem, a few friends wanted more understanding as to Its meaning and why certain words we’re in italics. Here’s a deeper look into the parable. Know that within the last forty-two words, I wanted to focus on a message consisting specifically on seven italicized words. In this, shedding light on a much deeper meaning regarding word use.


To be successful over madness, mined your hidden I.”

(The seven key words within the end quote explained)

To = Expressing motion in the direction of (personal achievement) a particular interest.

Successful = Accomplishing an aim or purpose. Achieving one’s desire of happiness within a healthy/functional lifestyle for oneself and others.

Over = Expressing authority or control, rising above.

Madness = The state of being mentally ill (regarding today’s zeitgeist), especially severely.  The chosen action of extremely foolish behavior and or the state of frenzied/ chaotic behavior.

Mined = Excavation in the soil (or richness of mind) for extracting an abundant source of something.

Hidden = Out of sight; concealed, (as in repressed personal feelings) intentionally or unintentionally kept out of sight.

I = Noun (the I) Philosophy (in metaphysics) the subject or object of self-consciousness; ego, OR was I referring to the pineal gland?

Why I chose the word mysticism.

In today’s society, most feel inadequate in comparison to what is thought to be accepted, even beautiful or successful. In this, people often feel a need to catch up, become a part of or rise above the achievements of others. Such thinking critiques the true essence of life and in doing so, intrigues people to go desperately in search of whatever makes them feel free, in control or empowered.

Intriguers such as mindfulness, enlightenment and yes even mysticism. These examples in no way indicates negativity, but upon the non-spiritually initiated by way of the living word of God, does indicate the possible development of pseudo understanding in truth. 

As such, mysticism is defined as (most often) characterized by self-delusion, dreamy confusion of thought, especially when based on the assumption of occult qualities or mysterious agencies.

Know that many look for a way out of what they believe is spiritual persecution but know that avoiding truth, to find what is convenient for personal choice is a form of denial. Guidelines within the bible are not to harm you, but rather help, heal and share what is conducive to your physical as well as spiritual being. Seek not into the mystic for complacency or thought, least the footsteps taken will guide you into the blindness of the lost.

The three points of cognitive awakening; answered.

Yes, I was referring to the seat of the mind.

Yes, the format was meant to be in the shape of a pyramid.

Yes, the upside down eye represents something worth looking into.

Please remember poems, analogies and parables speaks differently to different people. Take what you can utilize and absorb the rest if possible. One day It may make all the difference within the subconsciousness of your temple.

Think about it and I’ll try to keep this one short. When did friends become followers and followers become stalkers? Whether originally just being cordial upon accepting that friend request, exercising polite mannerism or simply trying to support one another, when or where did the disconnect regarding interpersonal communication happen?

I can only share my opinion but know, my opinions arise from deep spiritual thought and meditation, cultivated and prayed over for a great period of time. Here’s where I believe the disconnect happen, at the start of accepting a friendship that wasn’t developed out of love, care or concern! What if I told you the master plan was to “get people to share their personal information, market, advertise and sell-sell-sale!”

Think about it, If I originally had a product or influenced based idea to market and wanted mass distribution, without doing my own footwork for greed of capital, distribution or reach, what better way to come up with a system to persuade people to do the work for free! Simply by messaging  or massaging one’s ego, they can become powerful tools by adding contacts per personal request.

group hand fist bump











From friends to family, old acquaintances and so-forth, somehow we went from being friends to followers, followers to stalkers and ultimately sellers of mass marketing! This is why most people begrudgingly hit “like,” even when they didn’t fully read a friends or followers text. All leading up to the inevitable “I know not all will read this but send, share or comment if you’re really my friend” scenario.

Ever glanced over (yet another story) of someone’s success, pain or personal vent, just to put up an emoji of acknowledgement? How about not truly feeling the connection or care to even call the friend or follower to personally congratulate, console or commune with them? If so, It’s not your fault or mine for that matter but it is a sign of the times.

Need a quick example? Here’s how misconstrued communication has developed, have you ever responded to someones birthday by using just the acronym HBD, an emoji birthday cake or because you were too busy scrolling to text Happy Birthday, I love you friend!? How about not even knowing it was “your friend’s birthday in the first place, until a media-influence based algorithm, reminded you “let such-in-so know you’re thinking about them . . .” Come on, most are too busy or could care less, but just as with any failed relationship, people tend to just go through the motions anyway; being they were falsely conditioned from the start.

I’m not saying it’s a bad thing or even you’re a bad person but again, let’s be honest! To the women, If at the beginning of your engagement, your soon-to-be sent you a diamond emoji ring, popped the question, with celebratory flowers and a teddy bear, that’s not the same as a man submitting on one knee, asking for your hand in marriage. Not to forget professing his unconditional love for you in the company of many witnesses! If I’m wrong, I’d might as well emoji my mortgage company, a fist full of dollars paired with a happy face stating “paid in full!” Lets just see where that relationship takes us! 

Thinking about it, no one cares to be sold on a friendship, especially when it feels more-so about egoism, the number of friends or followers personally acquired, and or the immediate release of information as constituents for third party contacts; better known as advertisers!

Go ahead, please prove my dismal understanding wrong regarding the fall of communication. And worst yet don’t even call them, let them call you! Give them a day, 72 hours or even a week, how many authentic calls do you receive from your media influenced contacts?

Out of the boasted hundreds or even thousands of friends and followers, are we really making a difference in others lives or have we become the hands and feet of media influenced propaganda, all about the sale, egoism and ultimately stalkers of sensationalism. In this, equaling the sum total of society’s personal information.

Bottom line, when did friends become followers and followers become stalkers? I’m thinking the day we personalized ourselves as media-influenced idols, as opposed to shaking hands, getting out and trying new things and or sharing in-person conversations to establish compatibility.

In all what am I trying to say? Let’s start over. Is there anything you feel I can help you with? Is there a resource of kindness, information or inspiration we can empower each other by opening up and sharing? Would you like to be friends?

I ask this because I’m in the spiritual business of course correction by way of the living word of God. I’m a leader by example but please know, I’m not looking for followers, I’m looking for believers! Not to do my will but the will of God, and in doing so creating leaders as well.

It is my faith and focused prayer, that we in society re-establish a true friendship in lifestyle; not to recruit friends to become followers and so on. Lastly, I know you’re not a robot, so you don’t have to hit like or send an emoji. Just pick up the phone and re-establish the essence of friendship with someone of choice. I love you friend, God bless.

Recently at one of my book signings a scholarly gentleman approached my table. There was no eye contact being he was drawn to the title of my newest book The Book of Wisdom: The Age of Mindfulness. After reading the title out loud he chuckled slightly and said “a book on wisdom, in such a small book.” Then he looked up at me as I smiled confidently and responded yes within this book. He wanted to say something I could tell but instead he smile politely and walked away.

He had all the information he could mentally digest that is, in his perceived world of understanding; so he left. This is why I refrain from insisting, convincing or persist that people understand, comply or even purchase my writings just out of politeness. Rather I choose to share the simple truth (keyword simple) but then again, truth is not often easily digested. Know that just because a topic has been misconstrued and expected to be complicated, doesn’t mean it needs to be explained or written in a complicated fashion to advance the attention it deserves.

Getting back to the scholarly gentlemen’s comment regarding wisdom within “such a small book,” allow me to elaborate. I was being kind by writing a 206 page book on wisdom, with an emphasis on today’s marketing viability. Also the title states ‘the age of Mindfulness” pertaining to today’s societal norms, not just old Testament bibliographic referencing of the living word of God.

In total honesty, all of wisdom can be explained in one paragraph, expressed in a matter of seconds and ultimately shown by example; instantaneously! Here’s what I’m saying, wisdom can be written in one word and again let’s be honest, if I were to write that word, print it on a piece of paper and bond it between the front and back cover page of my book, it would’ve been perceived as a failed joke. Only thing is that one word, as simple as it is, would have been the absolute truth. Think about it, losing weight is simple if we except truth. How to get six pack abs are simple, if  we except truth and how about this, making it to heaven is extremely easy (when it’s our time) if we except truth. Do we really need millions upon millions of dollars spent each year, specifically targeting a market on how to lose weight? Apparently so (hence market viability) being most have not accepted correctness. Moreover, do I need to write a thousand page book on wisdom to a society that has developed an media related attention span? Not at all, people want their wifi fast, their coffee hot and their news live as it develops!

In today’s society, we’ve been conditioned to expect a certain value per expectation times ratio. We want to be captivated, convince and sold quickly on subjects, objects or projects, being it relates to less decision making time, which equates to more play, lust and relaxation time for the duped consumer. For instance, how many times can we be convinced that the next new trend in smartphones, are actually adding any true value to our lives?

The day the powers that be develop a phone that has an anti-gravitational mechanism, which levitates off the earth’s magnetic surface, preventing dropped phones from cracked screens I’ll be convinced. Or maybe just develop a crack/shatter-free phone, that in itself would be at least on the verge of interesting. I know both phones are possible, being I’ve seen this in a vision but by that time, many will be restored back to telepathy, resulting in the vast fall of cellular-human tracking *(CHT). That’s right I said it, being I’m not worried about certain people actually reading my material, and that’s totally fine!

In conclusion, just be mindful when it comes to shared knowledge, new information and or the availability to spiritually learn and discern for yourself, least you very well may walk away from truth in the matter of this reality.  By the way, if you’re that certain type of person that’s been caught up or curious regarding that one word, describing wisdom mentioned prior; COME ON! I’ve written it seven times already. *All will come to pass, within the light.

God bless your journey.

Want balance in your life regarding relationships? First “remove all doubt, what you know and what you think you know about a person and give them 100% of your trust, honesty and affection.” Do this and patiently, faithfully wait. Just keep smiling and loving life enjoying the blessed seed you’ve sown. After awhile (a short while) if it’s not reciprocated, move on. Easier said than done, I understand but if you truly want balance in your life, it’s up to YOU to step off the scale of probability, enablement and codependency and invest, love, respect and develop, someone who’s willing to (at the least) meet you halfway. In this you would have established a common ground i.e. the first stage of balance. This applies to all relationships: careers, friendships, place of worship, old acquaintances, family members, coworkers, financial investments and so on. No, I didn’t include marriages (that’s another post – if you’d like)! Last point, and it’s a biggie! If at first you have a doubt, whether it’s you, your past or the other party, you’re already headed in the WRONG direction! Here’s the remedy, deal with yourself first, forgive yourself, remove all baggage and love yourself enough to faithfully move on into God’s favor for your life. What happens next is totally up to you. I suggest, removing all doubt, what you know and what you think you know about a person and give them 100% of your trust, honesty and affection.”

*There is a difference between waiting, being patient and allowing time for a relationship to develop. Just know if you’re at the ultimatum stage, the prior differences mentioned, may have turned into denial. You deserve better! Find – your – balance!

If you’ve purchased any of my books and discovered something thought provoking, mind-blowing or even that of constructive criticism, please let’s create an open dialogue for greater communication. Remember, we have a developing ongoing spiritual relationship/responsibility regarding a higher development of mind, body and spirit. Let’s be honest, most books are not read in their entirety, not to mention fully understood prior to being expedited to a shelf as room decor. Please understand my books were written for a completely different purpose. In other words not just to make a sale! If you’ve purchased out of politeness, friendship or the professionalism of just wanting to add to your collection of autographed literary works by authors, thank you but know there’s more in your hands than you realize. I’m not an author struggling or desperately  writing to become successful, I’ve already reached a level of success God has ordained upon my life. Therefore I write in the glory of God’s purpose for my life’s work (said in total humbleness)!

In other words I’m writing out of the pleasure of committed anointment, not under stress, nor financial need or the obligation of a deadline. Again, I’m not soliciting sales for the continuation of a lavish lifestyle or the hope thereof. I didn’t go out and purchase a thousand dollar suit, an expensive watch or dawn pictures of the lifestyle of the rich and famous set behind me to captivate your attention. Although countless studies have shown this to work time and time again! Bait and click models tempting buyers to indulge in “quick fixes, a magic pill or the next best thing,” as opposed to sowing a meaningful seed, which manifest future blessing of abundance, health and happiness honestly is becoming more cumbersome to share. In total transparency, I know this goes against the entrepreneurial mindset but truthfully, being an author doesn’t warrant a billionaire lifestyle (it’s a rarity if so) but if done right, it solidifies the continuation of purposed driven inspiration for future importance.

When I write, It’s not out of idolatry, celebratory ego or validation of importance but rather, I write for the legacy of my children, grandchildren, great grandchildren and future generations – not just my own! In this I encourage you as well to read, discern, preserve and seek out good spiritual bible based literature for friends, family or future potentials within and around your environment.

Please collect as many books on truth and positive understandings within the living word of God as you possibly can, then one day compare them to future publications. You’ll be uncomfortably amazed how history will change meanings, definitions and teachings towards our future children/generations; 14264092_1227252730641896_3534108924108081641_nyou know the ones that’ll be taking care of us AND the continuation of life.

Again, I’m writing to share wisdom, life experiences and love within others looking for blessed-tangible answers, regarding the difficulties in life by way of  leadership by example. As such, I offer a call to action by establishing dialogue as we  journey through life’s overall purposes.

Lastly, whenever the book calls you to read through the chapters, remember you can call or contact me and share, discuss or confirm that “we are as one” within the unfathomable wisdom of the Holy Spirit. God bless, see you within the pages and enjoy this journey!

 Footprints of the Mind

Mine your steps upon the placement of your mind,

mine what matters most, least madness lurks quietly behind.

Meticulously placed matters of mind, may yield miracles most find sublime,

but mine your own mind most carefully, never know what you may find.

A myriad of miracles may await your minds’ delight,

but remember minds are minefields, moreover mysteriously alike.

Mere matters of manners most people may see,

but only matters of the mind may reveal what’s hidden in thee.

Mastery of mind manifest miracles most divine,

stand guard at yours, least your dreams found less defined.

Many memories murmur, mysteriously in the meekness of mind,

moments matter most when moments are made to remind.

Miracles, miracles, miracles, most methodically awaits,

believe in your miracles, masterfully placed for mercies sake.

Missed miracles like mist may most often fade away,

but most miracles like mist, will rise again someday.

Most aspire to be successful, in a minefield of needs,

but money over mindfulness, mines madness indeed.

Moreover mined your minds’ mine in the mysticism of the blind,

may  you  find  the  hidden  footprints,  as  I  found  in  the  eye of  mine.

“I write because I’m a reflection of you and the beauty from within.

I write because It’s my legacy, my purpose, fanned by God’s given wind.

Set sail upon troubled waters in the darkest of night,

unto sunrise praise thee oh lord as our spirits unite.

From the sigh of his nostrils to the air that we breathe,

births my calling to fulfill the covenant of life; rooted deeply of blessed seed.

I write because it’s healing for all that journey the storm of this path,

a born again sinner in reverence of God’s mighty wrath.

More so into heaven, within the spirit I awake,

praised last words upon rest; was “my soul to take.”

I write to share wisdom, within this truth I shall remain,

cultivated by hands of praise, stretched high in Jesus name.

I write because I love you, I write because I’m free.

I write because I’m all that is you, as you are a reflection

of Christ within me.”

“We are as one, within the unfathomable wisdom of the Holy Spirit.”
