Hey, I used to wonder as a young boy why so many people including myself would treat people who have hurt me in a way better than I would treat those that would respect me and try helping me become better.
I liken this unto a person being male/female that would complain about the relationship that they were in being abusive, toxic, not being a ideal situation. Due to the fact that the person that he/she is a burden. Stating that they will leave them because they know their worth and value but when everything has subsided itself that person or persons complaining would return back to the very same situation that he/she was complaining about being toxic. –
Well, why is that??
People are taught that they can’t rise above their environment. People are raised in this society to believe that they are a product of their environment and their is nothing that they can do to change it. It is just fear that is planted deep in the subconscious minds of people.
For example, when I was in school I used to hear teachers say that if you are the product of a broken home. Being that your parents are divorce than the likely that you, yourself will have a failed marriage was something like 85% to 90% likely to happen.
For example if you are the product of a parent dealing with substance abuse you yourself will grow up and deal with substance abuse issues as well.
I say all of this to say that people not only lack knowledge but they lack the understanding and awareness to know that the conditions a environment is plagued with is the result of the actions of those living in it.
People are taught to fear, worry and the principles of it’s better not to know something than it is to know. Necessarily people need to be educated on what they are fearing and how to combat that fear with a strategy to overcome it.
It’s to my understanding that people go back to the same environment seeking quote on quote healing is due to the lack of feeling devalued. They don’t have any self worth, no value. When you teach people to fear their environment they become dependent on a thing that can not exist without a group of individuals making up that small of larger population.
The way I see it an environment is kin to a church building. A church is just a building with words on it advertising the name of a particular religion that the people adhere to. But how can the building be utilized for the reasons that it was created for? The people coming together fulfilling their obligations to those religious practices and idiologies that they adhere to. Then the building will become true in nature, but first the people must manifest true in their nature.
Time and time again people seek refuge in the same environment that they were originally hurt in is due to not just being taught their value and worth. But some of the blame had to be placed on that person as well. Unless you are a defenseless child. You can’t be held captive if you yourself don’t agree to the captivity.
What do I mean by that? A lot of times people go back to the same environment to heal is because they love it. They have become convinced that the very same environment that have hurt them loves them. They claim that it has been there for them when no one else has. It has nurtured them and raised them. They will always be and forever loyal.
Kind of reminds me of a gang boy standing his ass on the corner will fully and proudly to die for a block that didn’t raise him nor love him. But it has actually raised him, groomed him for his destruction.
All this shows me is that people hurt is so deep rooted that they have become numb to the idea that they are prostitute and the territory that they originate from is the pimp. Some people not going to like that I said that oh well. It’s the truth. If you understand the concept a pimp is a master over his prostitutes. They are his possession. His property. He has dominion over them. Many of our environments had the same influence over us as a pimp does over his. We get dispatched out to many parts of the world and just act out how we were raised and taught to be. Not really having a sense of awareness. Decernment that most of the none sense that we were subjected to can get us killed or landed in jail. Most of the stuff that we were taught in our environment is deception. It’s false. It needs for us to believe it so we can fulfill a purpose or a plan that it has for us. And the plan and purposes is just to pull us further and further away from the most high. This is just so we can’t use everything that the most high had equipped us with. To keep us in the dark. Our environment act as a handler of ours. And I say handler because that’s where most of us was programmed ever since a youth.
However we don’t need a environment filled with Babylonian luciferian liberal teachings to mold us. Where are the parents and the elders that will reach out and train up a child in the way that he shall go so that when he gets older he will not depart from it. That’s what we need. It’s a damn shame that we run back to these environments seeking healing and refuge when the most high let’s you know that he is your refuge. You can come to him for his yoke is easy. These toxic ass environments have replaced the order and authority that we are all desperately lacking in our life.
Stop running to a place seeking to be restored. If you got hurt there once whose to say that you won’t get hurt there again. There’s no good that will come from an environment that sole purpose is to not be apart of the solution but the fucking problem.
You’re better than that, you got the power to change and transcend all the hurt, pain, deception and foolishness. Get your ass up and get it done.
But anyway y’all stay blessed
In life we have all heard the saying “the sky is the limit.” Well if that’s the measuring stick for success, peace, love, happiness and prosperity. I don’t want it then. We should have the courage to push pass the limits that was placed on us and go after what society views as inevitable, but really is incredible. That’s God.
Remember, “whatever the mind believes, the body will achieve”
I’m going to let the image do all the talking.
Remember Dream, believe and Achieve
You know my WordPress family I can remember as a young boy sitting at the dining table listening to both my father and mother talk. They would say that “people are their own worse enemy.”
I never really understood what they meant by this. I would hear them say profound deep revelatory things that would silence a room. I seldomly would ask for them to clarify. It wasn’t until I moved out and was in college that I realized that what they said was true. Many times we blame others for our downfalls, short comings and missed opportunities. Many times we play the victim. We tell ourselves that if things around us would fall into it’s proper place we would have a easier way of living. We sit back and point the finger believing that this is the works of others. Only to realize that this was not by the hands of others. It was never others that was standing in our path.
It hurts doesn’t it?
Life has a funny way of showing you what you see verses what you really are.
Don’t stand in your way. You deserve more. You are better than that. You see yourself as royalty but you’re living the life of a peasant. Remember dream, believe and achieve. You can’t just see yourself as royalty, you have to mentally be royalty first.
Something to think about??
Read this and ask yourself, truly ask yourself. Why are you telling yourself that you should be further in life than you are currently? Then follow the question with, what are you holding on to that is holding you back from your purpose? Sit back and allow yourself to be humbled you will be surprised of the answer that you find out about yourself.
Yesterday I was having a conversation with myself. Yes I do that from time to time. I’ve been noticing that more and more people are walking around feeling unfulfilled. Regretting that they didn’t capitalize on their opportunities. I hear
“If I knew then what I know now I would be in a better place.”
“I should be further in my life then where I’m currently at.”
I politely ask why do you say that? Their response is I was being foolish when I was in my youth. I chose the streets instead of wisdom and knowledge. I rejecting the advice that my elders gave me. I traded in my obedience for sacrifice of the life that I should be having for the life that I wanted to have. I seen value in a temporary lifestyle instead of a everlasting lifestyle. I wanted things quick fast and in a hurry instead of taking my time.
I sit back in amazment because the people that I am talking to aren’t eighty or ninety years of age. They are in their mid to late twenties, thirties, fourties, fifties and late sixties. And it’s amazing how they have accepted defeat. It’s truly sad and at the same time humbling because they are not realizing that as long as they have life in their body. As long as the most high keeps waking them up. They can always live again They can always try again. They have a chance. They don’t have to quit, throw in the towel and accept defeat. They have a chance to live right, do right and be right. They don’t have to accept their circumstances and predicaments.
It’s humbling because my dad always told me that you don’t have to touch the fire to know that it is hot and will burn you. Just observe people lives and you will know what to do and what not to do.
However, what’s truly amazing about all of this is all the garbage that they are still holding onto that prevents them from succeeding in life. I question What’s holding them back from what they deserve to have. What’s holding them back from taking that next step toward a better tomorrow? Why can’t they access what’s theirs? Why can’t they let go and allow Yahuah (God) to truly have his way? What aren’t they letting go that is effecting their present and future. What are they benefitting by being hardhead? Why make life more difficult for yourself than it already is? Why aren’t you realizing that today is a new day. All those things that have happened on yesterday is old. You have another chance to live again? Why are you finding comfort in continuing to stay blind and deaf to your opportunities that you have now? Why do you like being alive physically but dead mentally, spiritually and emotionally? You are a warrior. Now why did you trade in your armor for some magic beans? Who told you that this is where your life ends?
Now you answer,
What are somethings in your life that you are holding on to; not allowing yourself to be humble enough to receive direction, that is preventing you from elevating to a level in your life that you believe that you should already be at?
What are some past things that you maybe holding onto that is making your future hard to attain?

Everyday something is happening to us that we can or can’t prevent. And you know it that does suck. When certain situations are in your control and it just slips through your fingers. Man another missed opportunity. Or when certain situations arise that go undetected, situations never showed up on the raider. It’s in stealth mode. These situations come in like a flood and catch you off guard and just wipe you out. Man, that hurts because it shook up your world and left you to die. You could feel how cold it was. In its eyes you see no care, no grace, no compassion, no mercy.
You were not prepared for a category 7 situation. You are left not knowing what to think, what to make of this and what to do with the remains of this catastrophe.
In the words of Hustle Man, “you gotta pick up the pieces.”
Don’t sit back and allow what has happened to you weigh you down. Don’t walk around blaming yourself for situations that were in our out of your control. Keep going. Don’t sit back and relive the same tragedy over and over again, because it won’t solve a thing. All of these things that you are constantly holding onto is a form of pity. Avoid it at all cost because pity……….. well it’s a one shot kill to your courage leaving you wasted and your situation remaining the same, never changing.
Change your mentality and you will change your reality. Don’t think and confess with your lips that your life is over. Don’t make peace with your situation. Don’t lay out new covers, place pillowcases on pillows, and lay out bedsheets. This is not a sleep over. Give your situations the hotel treatment, “checkout is at 7pm. All calls end, turn in your keys and key cards, and any damage to the room will be added to your bill. Have a nice day and please fill out a survey through our website leaving a friendly comment about our services.” But get into the habit of waving your hands to your situations telling them “bye and don’t come back now.”
Stop throwing yourself a pity party. Yes it happened. Yes it brought you alot of pain and misery. Yes it caught you off guard. But by you holding onto the memories of it, it’s only going to further injury to your life. Allow yourself to heal and let it go. You deserve a new beginning. Lighten the load, let that baggage go. I liken this unto going to the grocery store buying at maximum 15 bags worth of groceries. Let’s say that you have a friend there with you. I would hope that you are not being a muscle man/women but you realizing that you can’t carry all of this home. So instead you lighten the load and hand about 6 to 7 bags to your friend. This makes walking home easier, bareable. Instead of you walking down the street struggling.
Look situations happen it’s just apart of life. There is no way to escape it. However, there is a way to deal with it. Yes there is a way to deal with it………
Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.

Why do we wait one time out of the year to show our love, care and affection?
Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ.
No matter what you may say or think most of the holidays on the calendar have pagan origins behind them.
What is a Pagan??
a follower of a polytheistic religion (as in ancient Rome)
one who has little or no religion and who delights in sensual pleasures and material goods : an irreligious or hedonistic person
Valentine is the day where two people exchange candy, cards, flowers and love. It’s the time of the year where you show your significant other just how special they are. It’s the time of the year where businesses make a billion plus in revenue. However, is Valentine’s Day really about love? Where does such a holiday originate? Why the month February? Does this day have anything to do with Yahuah (God)?
Valentine’s Day is another holiday that has been “whitewashed” to hide the perverted customs and observances of pagan gods and goddesses that have been “Christianized” encouraging the world to partake in. Although Valentine’s Day appear to be innocent, the traditions and customs of this holiday originate from two ancient Roman pagan festivals 1) Lupercalia and 2) The feast of Juno Februata.
Lupercalia (Latin: Lupercalis) relating to the god Lupercus, Roman equivalent of the greek god Pan. Lupercalia is also called dies Februatus.
Lupercalia: The Roman’s festival of “sexual license”
Lupercalia a bloody, violent and sexually-charged celebration awash with animal sacrifice, random matchmaking and coupling in the hopes of warding off evil spirits and infertility. This festival was celebrated on February 15th in honoring the Ancient Romans god Lupercus (The Wolf god), who is the god of fertility, agriculture and shepherds. The luperci (male priests) assisted by the Vestal Virgins (nuns i.e., daughters of nimrod) conducted purification rites by sacrificing goats and dogs in the Lupercal cave on Palatine Hill. This is believed by the Romans that the twins Romulus and Remus had been sheltered and nursed by a she-wolf before they founded Rome.
For this fertility rite, the Luperci would first cut the skins of the goats which they had sacrificed into pieces. “Some of these would be used to cover parts of their bodies so as to imitate their god, who was represented as half naked and half covered with goat-skin. The other pieces of skin would then be cut into straps which were held in their hands. Then, the Luperci would run through the streets of Rome, touching or striking any person they met with their straps – especially women who wanted to conceive.”
The instrument that the Luperci used to strike women with is called “Februa” which means instrument of purification and was made from sacrificed goats. The reason why the Luperci struck the women with februa is way to “promote fertility” since most of the women that were seized by Romulus were barren. The Roman month februarius is named after the latin term februum which mean “purification” thus the purification ritual using the instrument of purification februa is where we get the month February.
The month of February was also sacred to the Juno Februata, the goddess of ‘fever’ (febris in Latin) of love, women and marriage in ancient Pagan Rome.
“a box was provided from which single men could draw a “billet” — a small piece of paper on which a woman’s name was written. The couple would then form a temporary liaison for the erotic games to follow. They would remain partners for the following 12 months. Sometimes marriages resulted from this practice.”
The Whitewashing of a Perversion
Now the church tried to change the sexual behavior of this festival by instead placing saints names into the box and the young men would draw a billet and he would have to emulate that saint in which he drawn from the box. however, this failed and during the sixteenth century the church tried once more and failed again. However, in A.D. 494 Pope Gelasius would rename the festival of Juno Februata to “The feast of purification of the virgin Mary.” The date would also be changed from the 15th to the 14th of February to the 2nd and then back to the 14th of February. This festival was also called “The presentation of the lord,” because this is when Mary was purified in the Jewish temple after giving birth to Jesus Christ.
Constantine had made Christianity the official religion of the Roman Empire in A.D. 325, the church leaders were trying to get rid of the pagan festivals, but Rome was unable to do so. So Pope Gelasius instead changed the holiday from the 15th to the 14th of February and called St. Valentine’s Day. This holiday was named after one of the church’s saints who was executed.
Who is Valentine? Who is he…….???
Valentine at the time in Rome was a popular name and it comes from the latin word Valentinus, which comes from valens, which means “to be strong, powerful and mighty.” Wait don’t this sounds familiar in the bible in the book of Genesis, Nimrod was a mighty hunter before the Lord (Gensis 10:9-11). Lupercus was the Roman version of the Greek god Pan, but the Semites called Pan “BAAL.” Baal is another name for Nimrod who established The Tower of Babel. Nimrod’s mythology is copied all throughout societies. The main ones are Egyptians, Greeks, and the Romans.
What does a heart have to do with Valentine’s Day………???
Baal of the Phoencians and Semites. The name Ba’al (Baal) means “Lord or master” and it is mentioned throughout the scriptures as “God and Lord” which are titles of Baal aka Nimrod. In the Chaledeans language of the Babylonians, Bal, which is Baal means “HEART.”
Why a husky man-child with a bow and arrow and wings……????
Cupid is another name for Nimrod. Cupid comes from the latin word cupere which means “to desire.” Cupid is the son of Venus Roman goddess of love. Cupid is also known as Eros in ancient Greece as the son of Aphrodite. Eros means to have love between man and women. Cupid was a archer let me remind you that Nimrod was also skilled at archery. Cupid is depicted with a bow and arrow remember Nimrod was a mighty hunter. Semiramis was Nimrod’s mother and she lusted after him, she “desired” him and later own Nimrod became her cupid/valentine i.e., “desired one.” Cupid has both cruel and happy personalities. Cupid has invisible arrows that have gold tips, he would strike men and women causing them to fall madly in love with each other. Cupid did not do this for their benefit. He did this to drive them crazy with intense passion so their lives could be miserable. Cupid would sit back and laugh at them. Cupid was mischievous.
Valentine’s day cards
So why do we exchange them………….?????
There are at least three different Saint Valentines, all of them martyrs. You can look this up under the martyrologies under the date of 14 February. One is described as the priest in Rome, another is a bishop of Interamna (modern Terni) and the other supposedly died in Africa. These men had suffered in the second half of the third century and were buried on the “flaminian way.”
Valentine, disobeyed Claudius by performing wedding ceremonies for young men, when the Emperor preferred to see them roped into military service rather than marriage. While imprisoned, Valentine fell in love with a young girl who visited him, perhaps the daughter of the jailer. Before he was executed, he allegedly sent her a letter, signed, From your Valentine.
why do we give them………..????
The red rose is the flower of Venus the Roman goddess of love. It is used to symbolize fire and strong emotions
The picture is a depiction of The goat god Pan on the right, Eros at top and Aphrodite to the left. This is Nimrod, Tammuz and Semiramis.
And I will punish Bel in Babylon, and I will bring forth out of his mouth that which he hath swallowed up: and the nations shall not flow together any more unto him: yea, the wall of Babylon shall fall.
My people, go ye out of the midst of her, and deliver ye every man his soul from the fierce anger of the Lord.
I just want to leave off by saying this why would you allow a holiday to dictate when you should show your love to your significant other. There are 365 days out of the year. you mean to tell me that 364 of those days are spent not caring, appreciating or showing love and care. But on that 365th day, that 1 day out of the year you’re going to spend all this money trying to prove, show and express something that you have the opportunity of doing every other day and IT WON’T COST YOU A DAMN THING.

A wise man once told me that “I was not afraid off failure, I was afraid to succeed.” Hearing my dad utter those words, definitely place something on my mind. At the time I did not understand what he meant by that, nor did I ask. Now at the age of twenty-six I understand clearly. Looking back I see that what he said had alot of truth to it. Knowing how my dad talks, I was not shocked by what he said, but how he said it. Normally you would hear someone say, “don’t be afraid of failure.” However, my dad is not normal, hahaa. When my dad was teaching me the fundamentals of life, I would always try to be prefect. I would always try to get everything right. I hated the idea and feelings of failure or just making a mistake. I can’t lie I also would try to be perfect because when your in the process of learning. You have someone teaching you and you don’t want to disappoint them. You don’t want to see frustration show on their face. You don’t want to see disappointment in their eyes. You know what I’m saying?
I believe it’s safe to say that when in a learning stage of life you may not comprehend nor trying to apply to your life the teachings that a person is teaching you. You spend more time pretending so you can get on that person good side. What’s really going thru the brain is why does this person hate me? Not really understanding that they are pushing you.
You know what’s funny about all of this is that often times in life we want people to help us, but we want to dictate how people help us. I look back on my life and realize that I spent more time fighting not to change then I did to change. I look around the world today and see the exact same thing taking place with other people. For example, when you are helping a three year old tie his/her shoes and they tell you ” no I can do it.” You look at them and say, “let me help you.” They say one more time “no I can do it” and snatch the shoes away from you. So you stand back and watch them put their shoes on and tie them. You notice that they have the shoes on the wrong foot and they look you in the face and say “see I did it.” Now you weren’t amazed that they can put their shoes on and tie them. You are more amazed that they are determined to reject help. I swear we act just like this as people. We reject someone help because we percieved that they are trying to help us with what we know. Naw, they are trying to help us with what we don’t know. The irony of the three year old shoe situation is to show that a person’s help can assist you in avoiding unnecessary mistakes.
Why afraid to succeed? Parent eagles stirs the eagle’s nest so the baby eagle can’t get comfortable on one particular side of the nest. This is done to encourage the eagle to not become dependent on the parent eagles. Oneday they will have to learn how to fly and survive on their own. So many of us want change, but we settle for comfortability. As people we love what makes us comfortable. We love things that make us feel warm and fuzzy. We love things that don’t oppose a challenge to us, but enable us to remain the same. We are not afraid of failure because we accept defeat all the time wether we acknowledge it or don’t acknowledge it. When you constantly fight against knowledge and understanding. You are a willing participant for failure. When you perfer to stay the same way you have always been and expect different results. You’re insane, but a willing participant for failure. When you fall and tell yourself “why should I get back up again. I’m just going to fall again. So I might as well get used to it.” You my friend are a willing participant for failure. Saying words like can’t, quit, and won’t are a person way for filling out an application for failure. So we can’t be afraid of failure when we spend more time fighting against the maturation process. It’s crazy because it’s inside of us to do more and become better. But we live a life that warrants us to do less and become less. But we contradict ourselves because we want more, not less. Well “for unto whomsoever much is given, of him shall be much required.” It’s seems like we are running from the responsibilities of who we are as people instead of accepting what’s ours. It’s crazy because don’t you want to see everything that you are and will be? Is your life anything worth fighting for?
Stirring the eagle’s nest so the young can fly like the rest of the eagles. You see the eagles flies high and looks low. If the eagle was allowed to stay comfortable in it’s situation it would not survive. It would be another species prey. So the eagle is more than capable enough to understand that if I don’t push my young to fly how will they ever take on the true nature of what they were created to be.
Answer these questions
What is your true nature in which you are created to be?
Are you fighting against your maturation process?
Are you comfortable in a particular area of your life that warrants change?
