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.
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!
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.
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!

One’s expectations doesn’t guarantee the fruition of one’s hopes and desires.
Don’t accept people for who they are, If you’re not willing to deal with the consequences of their results or actions.
A man is not a man, if he’s not the man of your dreams. Nor is the body of a woman, if he’s not in love with her soul.
“Look deeper than insecurities and maybe you’ll find, wisdom in choices are reflective of one’s mind. Raise the bar! Don’t stop, don’t settle for less, but know this requires; your absolute best.”
If a man or woman says “you complete me,” tread carefully! Although cute an romantically understood, this old schooled movie mentality has fooled many innocent hearts. In other words, yesterday’s romantic afterthought may be an indicator or sign of denial “in need.” Furthermore ending up as your today’s reality drama. Something to honestly consider, either way it’s your cup to fill or empty. Think about it.🤔
THINK ABOUT IT: THE RIDDLE
How can two become one, if both glasses are only filled halfway?😉
The diligent road to success, inspiration and happiness is far less traveled than most people realize. Why? Because those who follow, often becomes stuck behind the inflated ego’s of another’s destined purpose.
God didn’t create you to become a follower of other people’s success or ideas thereof, nor by the worldly standards of idolatry. You were embodied to wonderfully express the best version of yourself within God’s favor.
I’m not saying it’s a bad thing to follow that which inspires, but it’s imperative to know when to get off the train! In this, people can discover, rediscover and blaze their own trails to personal success.
This is why as an author, chef and motivational speaker I’m NOT looking for followers, but rather believers!
With that said,
Believe in yourself!
Believe in a higher power!
Believe in your spouse, family or friends who could greatly benefit from your positive input.
Believe there is special purpose in your life
until it manifests as evident.
Lastly, believe in hope, love and prayer, especially during the difficulties and circumstances of life.
Call to action!
Do you know someone who’s struggling with belief, personal success or positive lifestyle change?
The best revenge is to love thy enemy, God will handle the rest. And here’s why! Fighting ignorance with ignorance, only facilitates one’s weakness to remain on the level of the ignorant. Here’s the takeaway! “Turning the other cheek” is for YOUR physical, mental and spiritual well-being! How so? The stress, retaliation and anxiety you’ll save will without doubt, strengthen your moral and environmental character. In turn, this action will fuel the energy needed to leave behind, that which once held you in a place of contentment, enablement and low self-esteem. Those who are of higher consciousness understands, only a fool “fights fire with fire” when the living well of water runs deep. Also, “sticks and stones” pales in comparison to words of hate manifested within an unguarded mind. Take this knowledge upon your journey and remember, there’s MORE to you than your enemy’s ability to comprehend. And this also goes for the enemy from within! Wait, no more; “go ye therefore!”(Matthew 28:19)
Today is the day you make the change, act on your idea and choose the path that will define YOUR greatness! Not only for your name sake, but that of your legacy, family, children and those closest to your goal set. Just decide! Grow and produce bountifully in all that you do; in Christ’s name. And above all the fear, doubt or naysayers, remember; God remains within the creation of your purpose.
