The Rule of Ratio

“Stop raising your children to believe they can grow up and become superstar athletes — when others of less intelligence, are positioning, volunteering, and grooming themselves for positions of power. In this, running courts with judges, as opposed to courts, fields or rings with referees. Yes, some athletes can make millions, while team owners make billions. And for what? So influenced lawmakers can change a rule, make a law, or corrupt a democracy? Best change the ratio, before the rules are changed or challenged again.”

Think About it.

RUNNING WITH WOLVES

  By Reginald O’Neal Gibson 

The hunt upon the glow of sight,  

sheds bright upon the moonlit night. 

The howl of life the wolves delight, 

broken upon the skies incite. 

“What are they” whispers cub on hill, 

great-grandfather wolf speaks, with utter of chills. 

Those are they that’ll rape our land,  

death, and destruction they’ll covet in hand. 

Heaven on earth they’ll claim phenomenal, 

but truth be told child — they’re the real animals. 

Run!

Under The Influence

If I were to say “hickory dickory dock, the mouse ran up the . . .” Most people would finish the complete rhyme, vaguely remembering when they’ve learned it or even why. Yet, like many other words, songs, lyrics, teachings, and rhymes, “we the people” find ourselves “unknowingly” knowing but being led by, that which we cannot fully explain e.g., the subconscious reflecting of heterosuggestive implementation. 

The unfortunate backlash comes when a person’s deep rooted inhibition, reflects in wickedness of an unknown influencer. Sounds far-fetched? Here’s an example that may help shine light on the understanding. Mentally envision a middle-aged wealthy man who’s in good physical health. Add to this man, a solid well known and respected reputation among friends, families, and colleagues. He’s filled to the brim with confidence, pride, and vigor, while possessing and expressing the freedom and privileges bestowed upon his status/journey throughout life, all to one day (in a matter of hours) fall to that of traitor, insurrectionist, and rioter, upon an establishment that best facilitates his, and the like thereof, once legacy. (a “ten-year maximum sentence” per his idols words, now chiseled felon within record). Moreover, “and all the king’s’ horses, and all the king’s men’s, couldn’t put . . .” 

Here’s the thing, this idol (his idol), who enslaved this man’s idea of freedom, struck the flame within a cluttered mindset of mess – saturated knowingly, and to a deeper affect “unknowingly” by way of heterosuggestivle hate, despair, and bigotry. And just as blindingly following the symbolism of rhythmic suggestions “one nation, under God, with liberty, and justice for . . . ” a man’s understanding of freedom was lost – under the influenced/er of factors seemingly unknown, yet embedded to destroy a democracy for its people, by its people, mindlessly under the influence of that which they care not to admit or could fully explain. 

Know this, to acknowledge that one has fallen “under the influence” doesn’t forgive, resolve, or expunge the action taken. As such, life cannot be restored by the murderer or the accomplice/s sudden realization of said rock overturned – no matter what their pied-popper played.

If this doesn’t shed at least a flicker of light towards admittance or understanding, try to imagine how the “three blind mice” felt – after falling from that which influenced them. 

Think About It.

The Soil Upon Which I Stand

Our history isn’t perfect, nor complete in its entirety, but there’s more than enough factual based evidence, per the experience of mankind’s failures, and successes, to make informed, influenced filled debates, and re/discoveries for the betterment of mankind. Only issue is, are we utilizing the greatness of past, paired with the examples of the present, to teach, facilitate, and influence the zeitgeist of today’s “accepted norms” of embedded differences – which in turn, manifests into a bias that exacerbates mankind’s deepest fears? This is why I choose peace to bare,  implement, and diligently lead by. I choose to lay down my fears upon the soil which accepted our ancestors blood – in absolute faith, that the prudence of the philosophical mind, in “biblical understanding” and in action; shall prevail. As such, I’d die a life of fulfilled purpose.

From Which It Comes

In my words:  

“Why are you throwing stones, when the land upon which you stand is foreign? Have you not your own/learned understandings to lean upon? Or have you’ve given sole ownership to that which incites your insecurities?”  

In my grandfather’s words:  

“Boy! Have you lost your #@&#!!! mind!?”  

Bottom line, I miss my grandfather — he had a way with words that was unequivocal.  

Please know, we have an innate responsibility to know, learn, and grow from which we’ve come. And by all means, when knowledge is shared, we must allow the reverence of God, its wisdom, and its word to prove evident upon our spiritual maturity. 

As such, knowing that one day our expressions, love language, and calling upon the message given (in time/maturity), shall be heard. And not for entrepreneurial, idealistic, or persuasive measures, but for the reciprocity, and reverence of the living word of God.  

With that said, if you ever find yourself judging others, ask yourself this question prior to speaking with/about them, “are the words you speak meant to cast stones? Or is there a better way to teach, interact, or lead by example?”  

So, before you claim scripture, wisdom, and or the anointing to prophesied, please examine your thoughts, understandings, and intentions, because they too have an underlined effect on the delivery of the message being shared. Least you’d be like my grandfather, making a snappy point — but ultimately falling back into the rubble from which it came

De-Find Thyself

This is not my world. 

This is not my house. 

This is not my car. 

This is not my job. 

This is not my phone. 

This is not my computer. 

This is not my education. 

This is not my money.  

This is not my bank. 

This is not my credit. 

This is not my medicine. 

This is not my riches. 

This is not my worry. 

For these are merely suggestions, used in the temporary — by a system created to control the ONLY thing I do have! Which is, my God given PURPOSE! 

Let “no other” measure, classification, nor identification, define your creation.  


Don’t just “Think About It” — be about it!

Attention, Listen up!

I’m praying for your finances, your friends, your family, and your future, because sometimes it’s YOU, that’s screwing things up! 

I’m serious, take some spiritual responsibility!

People pointing fingers to the “far-left” or to the “far-right,” in hopes of feeling/being a part of “some-thing” thought bigger than themselves. When in fact/hope, they should be focused on what’s in between the left and the right, better known as the center of self. As such, lost vicariously sharing other people’s posts, agendas, and or reflective insecurities!

Why? Because they “know not who they are,”per the boasts and distractions of others – who in turn, don’t know, have a clue or even care if they exist!

And to make matters worse, you publicly pray to God, all the while listening, believing, and trusting “hook line and sinker” to the sensationalistic, well funded, media-influenced, pointing fingers of hatred, towards others ideologists! This, as opposed to welcoming God’s answer/s, directions, and or blessings! Point is, you can’t have it Botha ways. Either you trust in God and allow his answers, or you keep falling for the rhetoric that incites your insecurities.

Hey, listen up. God answers prayers “particularly” for three reasons. (not an exhausted list)

1.) To reward your faith, reverence, and trust in him/his mysterious ways.

2.) To remind you that his word, promise, and power is real, unquestionable, and forevermore.

3.) To continue your reflective purpose of glorifying God’s will, favor, and mercy over “all” made in his image. 

*(Including those you’ve been told, or influenced to believe are your enemies -because they pray too, and sometimes much harder)!

So starting today, until you start working on you, I’ll focus my prayers of healing, and God’s favor, over your “finances, friends, family, and future.” Think about this, would you turn an empty glass over, and start pouring water on the bottom of the glass? No, that’s insane! 

And as such, I’m not wasting anymore prayers, on anyone not willing to listen, trust or be influenced by the peace, love and mercy of God’s word, answers or blessings.

P.S. In case you didn’t know, This is your subconscious speaking! You’d know that if you’d rest a bit more, and stop listening to all that external rhetoric.😉

Think About it.

The Keep Up

Peace be Still😉

It’s amazing how people conjure up excuses to justify their dumbfounded reasonings – regarding your finances, blessings, and or lifestyle? Then, turn with audacity to huddle up with likeminded others, all in  hopes of making you feel unworthy, inadequate or defeated!

Please, keep doing you! Keep learning and developing you! And above all, keep smiling at those trying to keep you down, even while praying for them! Why? Because one day, they’ll most assuredly seek the very leadership skills you’ve developed, while being patient with them and theirs, that is, if they’ve  kept up.
