The Journey

Your journey towards the best version of yourself will never end. That magnificent destination you were aiming for, I’m sorry to break it to you, but you will never arrive.

Your spirit is on an infinite journey. There is no perfection, no finish line, and no end.

This life on earth is just one leg of your journey. One day you will wake up and find yourself in another life, another reality, experiencing a whole new leg of your journey.

Change is always expected and you are guaranteed to grow throughout your journey. You can also step out every once in a while to stretch and reflect on all that you’ve taken in.

You are welcome to plan ahead for the next few miles (if this makes you feel better). But know that your only responsibility is to simply keep your eyes on the road. So sit back, enjoy the ride, and marvel at what the scenery has to offer.

Dance Like There’s No One Watching

I’m not necessarily speaking about dancing, but more about how much of your true self you dare to express to the world.

Now if you are a dancer, you probably already know the meaning of this all too well. You are used to throwing all cares aside and expressing yourself physically and emotionally to the world. When you perform, you are in your happy place and oblivious to others and their critique of you. You’re quite comfortable with your body and bearing your soul to the world is like second nature to you.

But what about the times when you are not onstage? And what if you are not even a dancer? How do you abandon all your cares and express yourself emotionally, physically, verbally, spiritually, artistically, or however else you choose without shame or inhibition? How do you just let go and be in the moment? How do you give yourself permission to be real for the joy of the experience without any fear or agenda?

For starters, you have to get in touch with yourself. You have to learn to have an honest conversation with yourself and get comfortable with the voice(s) inside your head. This may require spending lots of time alone and in silence without any distractions. You will have to reserve some time everyday to do this. Others may require some extended time off to completely remove themselves from the distractions of the world. Some may even require a vacation retreat in order to get out from their all too familiar daily surroundings and routines. Whatever you do, do it alone, as this is the only way to know and be comfortable with yourself.

Remember, your time alone is meant for you to monitor your thoughts and emotions and many things will come to the surface, even the stuff you’ve kept buried for years. The main purpose of this is so that you can learn how to feel. You want to get intimate with your emotions and sit with your thoughts and feelings, no matter how good or bad they may feel. So let them rise to the surface. You don’t always have to understand the reasons behind every emotion. However, you do have to acknowledge them and do your best not to suppress them.

Once you’ve acknowledged your feelings, you can choose to meditate on them, to pray, or even write them down. You’re looking to get to a point where you still love yourself regardless of what you are feeling. You’ll come to see that your thoughts and emotions are fleeting, as they come and go at a moment’s notice. But the real you is simply the constant observer of it all.

To heal from any negative feelings that will rise, you can do a novena of the sacred word. This is where you invoke spiritual light in order to transmute the lower frequency energies occupying your energy body into higher frequency energies.

Once you’ve gotten to know the real you and you’ve fallen in love with this being, you will find that your emotions are no longer obscured. And then you too will want to dance the dance of the dancer. You will have discovered your truest individuality and this individuality will at times require the stage to express itself creatively.

Some call it finding your voice. Others call it confidence in your self-expression. I call it dancing like there’s no one watching.

When you dance like there’s no one watching, there will be no holding back. The real you will always feel compelled to reveal it’s true self to the world. The real you is not interested in hiding behind masks, reading from a script, wearing protective gear, or sitting on the sidelines. Through hell or high water, the real you will be expressed, for there will be no other way.

9 Reasons To Stop Watching Television

I don’t watch television. I haven’t since 2011 and find I don’t even miss it. When I’m able to stay current using the vast selection of online media that’s out there, why would I need to watch television?

It all started back in 2011, when I had lost interest in watching anything that was on. I called my cable provider, cancelled my subscription, and liberated myself from mainstream media’s mental enslavement.

But it wasn’t until years after the chatter machine was turned off that I fully realized all the negative ways it had affected my life.

I now appreciate the silence I have at home and will never subscribe to that noise machine ever again. Since gaining freedom from this all-too-common trap in today’s society, my life has improved significantly, and I can promise you that yours will too if you so choose to pull the plug.

So without further ado, I’d like to give you 9 reasons why you may want to stop watching television and why you’ll probably have no regrets about it.

1- IT’S A TIME WASTER.  There are so many things you could be doing with the time you watch TV. Study has it that the average American watches 35.5 hours of television per week. That’s practically a full-time job! Can you imagine all the stuff you’ve been missing out on? All the books you could have read, all the conversations you could have had, all the talents you could have cultivated? Realize you will continue to miss out on these insanely enriching activities as long as you continue giving your undivided attention to your beloved TV set.

What about the entertainment you ask? Well, we all have to ask ourselves just how much entertainment do we need? There comes a point where you have to wonder if your quest for entertainment stems from you not having anything better to do. If we were all passionate about our dreams, with a burning desire to dive into them, would the first thing we do when we have some free time is plop ourselves in front of the TV and zone out for hours on end? I don’t think so.

It’s time that many of us looked inside ourselves and found out what we really want out of life and then just go for it. Zoning out in front of the TV only helps to keep you pacified and indifferent to your life’s goals. Everyday you are being lulled to sleep with cheap entertainment while your dreams are being snatched away from you. And the worst part is you don’t even realize it.

Do yourself a big favor and choose to no longer let that TV screen keep you from manifesting your dreams.

2- YOU DON’T NEED TO WORSHIP OTHERS.  They want you to worship who? Ain’t no one better than you. Not to say that you’re better than others, but you certainly don’t need to bow down to anyone else. We are all equal in the eyes of our Creator. Needless to say, you don’t need to buy into the celebrity worship culture of today, much of which comes from television.

Television has a way making others seem larger than life simply because they appear on your screen at home. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but these people on your TV screen are not gods. They’re regular people who sit on the toilet everyday and scrub their butts in the shower just like you and me. The fact that they may seem larger than life is because your corporate elitist media would like you to think so. They want you to believe that you are an unworthy sucker and that you need to look up to them because they have all the money, beauty, talent, knowledge, connections, and power. Why shouldn’t you feel left out? They’re part of the inner circle, and you’re not.

Know your worth and don’t fall for the foolishness. Realize that the folks of TV Land have nothing of value to offer you, but they’re desperately seeking your attention. Turn that TV off and choose to no longer give them your time of day.

3- YOU DON’T WANT TO BE PROGRAMMED.  What a great way to mass hypnotize the public than through television. There’s a reason why they call the shows TV programs. And they have a program for everyone. There’s even one just for you.

This is where they program you on what is PC and what is not. What’s cool and what’s not. What’s real and what’s not. What you should want, what you should wear, how should think, how you should talk, and how you should act. You get the gist…

You’re not supposed to think for yourself. That’s their job. You just leave the thinking up to them and all will be well.

Oh, and I almost forgot about those slick subliminal messages and symbols. Yeah, the ones they like to secretly stick in the commercials, music videos, and movies. The ones they’re hoping you didn’t catch. And most of the time you actually don’t. But your sub-conscious always does.

When it comes to the media’s programming, you must wonder what they’re suggesting or the ideas you’ve already agreed to without your conscious knowledge. If you knew what they were, you would most likely reject them at once. This is why hypnotism is required to slip them in. It’s a slick trick, but it works every time.

Your mind is your most precious asset. Keep unauthorized ideas out of your mind and choose to no longer be hypnotized against your own will.

4- TO KEEP THE NEGATIVITY OUT.  Why is it that when you watch the news, all they ever report on is the bad stuff? Does anything good ever happen?

There’s always some major controversial debate. And depending on which network you watch, they always have a side to take. (Why can’t TV reporters just report? Who are they to counsel the public on which side to take?)

If it’s not some controversial subject that they have to instruct you on, then they have all the violent crimes that took place for the day. The thing is, you’re not supposed to think this world is beautiful. In your mind it’s supposed to be a hostile, dark, and scary world. You had better be scared. You had better be on the defense. You had better pray that the sky doesn’t come crashing down. And most importantly, they set it up so that your hero government can come to save the day!

How about all of the crime shows depicting details of violent rapes, shootings, and murders? There’s also all the sexually explicit content they shove in your face? Do you really need to be kept on the horny all day? Could it be that there’s nothing more important than sex in life?

One has to wonder if life is really that morbid? I can tell you from this side that it’s not. But you have to be willing to kick the negativity machine out of your house for you to be able to finally see this.

5- YOU DON’T WANT TO BE LIED TO IN YOUR OWN HOME.  Most people believe everything they see and hear on television. As the old saying goes, “If it’s on TV, then it must be true.” What’s funny is that this saying couldn’t be furthest from the truth. When it comes to the word television, its true meaning is actually staring at us right in the face. Quite simply, it’s a machine that tellslies-to-your-vision.

When you are fed a bunch of lies everyday and believe without question, you build an immunity to them. Particularly if the lies are always from the same source, your mainstream media. Their lies become your norm, your logic, and your reality.

But once you realize there is a world of alternative media out there and have stopped subscribing to the talking heads of the mainstream media, you’re eyes and ears will become quite the bullshit radar they were designed to be. You’ll have multiple sources to compare reality to and will see the varying contrasts between each one. And this is when you’ll get better at detecting truth from the lies and the real from the fake.

I personally would not allow anyone, no matter how expert they claim to be, to come into my home, lie to me, and then take me for a crazy ride. If you don’t want anyone insulting your intelligence in your own home, and if you don’t want to go for that ride, then I’d advise you get a grip on what is reality and seek out other sources for your news and entertainment.

Then after a good dose of truth and reality, you will want to throw that fake lying machine right out of your house.

6- TO SAVE MONEY.  Gone are the days when TV service was free. Today you gotta pay for it all. Whether its cable, satellite, Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Prime, or whatever else is out there. I don’t keep track anymore. All I know is they’re all gonna cost you.

Why waste your money on something that’s there to lie to you and take up your time? I can think of so many useful things this money could go towards.

How about keeping your money in your pocket and using it to fund an upcoming vacation, to further your education, to start that business you’ve always wanted, or just add it to your savings.

You’re smart like that. I’m sure you’ll find something awesome to make use of all that extra money that you’ll be saving.

7- TO NO LONGER SUPPORT MAINSTREAM MEDIA AND THEIR SPONSORS. The more you engage in the programming that the networks have laid out for you, the more you support their advertisers. And the schmuckier you get, and the richer they get.

I won’t imply that television is all about “making that money”, but I will say that money does play a large part in their world.

The puppet masters not only want to have you under their thumb, but they also want to get rich while at it. It’s a win-win situation for them. The higher the ratings, the more they can pitch to advertisers, and the higher the chance for their advertisers to brainwash you into buying their toxic products. Everyone wins (except for you).

Wanna be the perfect pawn for their agendas?  Then by all means, please continue watching television.

8- IT’S BORING.  Ok. How long has TV been around now? Some 70 years or so? Do we realize that it’s still the same old-same-old since the back in the day when it first began?
The same old sitcoms, laugh tracks, talk shows, sports competitions, news broadcasts, politics, celebrity line-ups… The faces may have changed over the years but it’s still the same show repeating itself over and over. Does anything ever change in TV Land???

Who wants to watch these lame-asses on a late night talk show and be conditioned as to what is funny and then cued when to laugh? The laugh tracks are so obvious.

Who wants to watch a bunch of robotic, tight-ass politicians debate over which party (Democrats or Republicans) is more superior? They’ve been at it for more than a century now. Somebody please make it stop!

Who wants to listen to a bunch of self-important celebrity elitists go on as if their word is law, most of which is scripted anyway. The general population can’t even relate to these paid actors. The same ones who will never go off script. And those that have dared to go off script, we know they always end up on the unemployment line.

It’s about time we watched someone else for once.

It’s become quite obvious that with the success of social media, the current generation is much more interested in watching and listening to real people.

It’s becoming extremely painful to watch the people of TV Land, because at this point they’re just plain boring!

9- IT’S OUTDATED.  With the internet era upon us, I seriously think television will die within the next 20 years.

The current millennial generation has absolutely no interest in what goes on in that world. As fast as our world is changing, I can’t imagine what the next generation will care about. All I know is that it certainly won’t be about what those boring dinosaurs have to say on their serious news networks and talk shows.

The glory days of television are over and its days are numbered. The puppet masters know this. This why they’re scrambling to get their networks and celebrities established on YouTube and other web-based platforms before they become irrelevant.

What’s funny is they don’t even realize that they’re already irrelevant.

Raising Your Standards

I have no tolerance for squalor, mediocrity, brutality, or lack of integrity, particularly in the western world. Call me a snob, but there are certain standards I must uphold. After all, I am a Divine Being.

How many of us use the excuse of not having enough time or money to create beauty in our homes, maintain our bodies, or spruce up our wardrobes? How many of us are waiting for that perfect partner to walk into our lives before we start expressing love (to ourselves and others)? How many of us are waiting for that perfect event before we wear something nice? How many are waiting for that perfect house before we grow a garden? How many are waiting for that perfect job, that raise from our boss, or that lottery windfall before we give ourselves a nicer reality?

Lack of money is not an excuse for living a bland life. It does not take much money to keep your home clean, beautiful, and inviting. It does not take much money to keep ourselves healthy and well-groomed. We use all sorts of justifications to stunt our growth, stall our happiness, and postpone being the greatest versions of ourselves. While life passes by, many are telling the universe they’d rather settle for less.

Life will reward only those who choose to multiply their gifts and talents. Take pride and show gratitude for all that you’ve been gifted and sure enough more will come your way.

If the universal mirror of life is to smile back at you, you must always be willing to smile first.

Many are content with living a dull, undistinguished, and mediocre life. Many have forgotten their divinity, as it sits on a shelf collecting dust, waiting to be noticed. But you don’t have to forget. You have no obligation to conform to the standards of your society. You can take command of your life at any time to raise your standards and act like the God Being that you truly are!

Getting Past the Barrier

What outplays in a nation’s government is an exact reflection of the consciousness of its people. With Trump constantly talking about building a wall, I find that most Americans have actually built a wall around themselves.

Why are we so guarded and reluctant to share our feelings with others? Why is it that most of us don’t even know how to open up? When will we take down these invisible barriers we’ve put up around ourselves? You know, the ones we use so that others can’t come too close.

When I meet someone, I’ll try to get under their surface. I’ll prod, poke, and throw all sorts of questions at them. I’m trying to get to their story and figure out the type of batteries they run on. Heck, I‘ll sometimes even volunteer to tell a piece of my story with the hopes they too will open up. Just doing what I can to build up a connection, not a barrier. I find that if I know your story and you know mine, then all of a sudden we’re no longer worlds apart.

Sadly, most choose to still keep the conversation at the surface level and sometimes I’ll even end up listening to crickets. Most will walk away with my story, while failing to reciprocate the gesture.

I’ve come to the conclusion that people just don’t want to be put in a situation where they have to be vulnerable, so they will simply gloss over your story and nod as they slowly back away from you.

I don’t want to generalize and say this applies to all Americans. But I have to say that I experience this in most of the people that I come across here. Being born and raised in the US, I didn’t notice it so much at first. But after visiting several other countries and interacting with the open-hearted and expressive people there, I can clearly see where we lack. Upon returning to American society, the barriers have become quite obvious.

At this point I am so over the small talk and fluffy relationships. Wearing a mask is suffocating. I’ve taken mines off and am done with upholding emotional facades, surface-level conversations, and fake realities. Lately, I find myself skipping past the hum-drum pleasantries and moving along when I am offered the mask.

If we can’t fully express ourselves, then how are we going to heal from the things that burden us? Not sure what could possibly be so earth shattering about others witnessing the expression of our true selves? Not sure what we have to protect so much? But whatever it is, I guess it’s worth the trouble of building up a barrier.

LMN, and thanks for reading!

You Are Not A Robot

Most of us don’t even realize it, but we’ve all been programmed to react in certain ways during certain situations. For example, think about how you react when someone treats you nicely as opposed to when someone treats you poorly.

Do you think you came up with those reactions yourself? Of course not. They were programmed into you by the mass consciousness and society’s not-so-gentle coaxing. This is why some of your reactions are so automatic and require very little thinking. This is also why you think you don’t have a choice. But do you really believe you don’t have a choice? Do you really want to be on this common programming that everyone else is on? Why is it then that you’ve allowed your programmed reactions to come this far with you on your journey?

You are a Divine Creative Being. This means you have the freedom to choose not to be a programmed robot. Remember, when it’s about you, you get to call the shots. You get to create your own responses, which in turn will create your own reality. You don’t have to settle for society’s reality. You don’t have to allow your reactions to be determined by some standard chosen for you.

Just because someone pushes your buttons doesn’t mean you have to respond all nasty and such. Someone else’s negative actions does not have to draw out a negative reaction from you. You can choose to respond in a completely unexpected way! This is what creativity is all about and you may end up surprising even yourself when you put it to good use.

Ok, I know. This may be easier said than done. But you can start by simply questioning all of your reactions and considering if some of them could actually be programmed into you.

Remember, you are upholding status quo the more you continue to cherish the programs you are on. I’m pretty sure you don’t want to be that mindless drone. No one does. So stop letting the world choose your reactions for you. Get creative and choose your own reaction to things.

You Have The Right To Change

You have the right to change your mind and to change yourself on a daily basis. This is your divine right.

GROW

You also have the right to try something different if what you are currently doing is not working.

FLOW

You were created to grow and change and flow and expand. You were not created to stand still.

EXPAND

Always be willing to expand your mind and to change your mind, so that you are always ready to change your life at any moment. This is your birthright and don’t let anyone convince you otherwise.

LMN, and thanks for reading!
