I know we often want it happy and positive, but that’s just not where much of humanity is. Many of us are overwhelmed with pain, undigested sadness, unexpressed anger, unseen truths. This is where we are at, as a collective. So we have two choices. We can continue to pretend it’s not there, shame and shun it in ourselves and others, distract and detach whenever possible. Or we can face it heart-on, own it within ourselves, look for it in others with compassion, create a culture that is focused on authenticity and healthy emotional release. If we continue to push it all down, we are both creating illness and delaying our collective expansion. But if we can just own the shadow, express it, release it, love each other through it, we can finally graduate from the School of Heart Knocks and begin to enjoy this magnificent life as we were intended. Pretending the pain isn’t there just embeds it further. Let’s illuminate it instead

Help Genesis Return to College (4/23/14)

Hey Wonderful People,

Imma take a moment to redirect some of the sharing energy to my Brown Boi Genesis This cat is absolutely amazing and he needs some help getting back to school. His previous university is charging him $800 dollars to release his transcripts! Ridiculous right?! Anyway, he needs some support in getting the funds in order to get his transcripts released so he can continue on his path back to college. Here’s his link:

With Love & Affirmation,

Get Rid of the Double Standard (2/21/14)

Get rid of the double standard saying fathers who stay home with their kids are valiant and mothers who stay home with their kids are common. Get rid of the double standard saying the mothers who go to work are irresponsible and fathers who go to work are dedicated. Both in either situation are doing what they need to (or feel they need to) do for their families and should be commended for putting in that effort. Stay at Home Mothers are Important. Stay at Home Fathers are Important. Working Mothers are Important. Working Fathers are Important. Plus if it ain’t ya family, it’s honestly none of ya business. If you not trynna spread positivity and support into their household then get the fuck out of their home.

“Peaceful Warrior Pose, aka Pose of Anpu, is an exclusively Kemetic posture that has a plethora of symbolic, etheric and physiological significance. Peaceful Warrior epitomizes he/she who seeks higher consciousness. The Peaceful Warrior does battle with negative and self defeating thoughts and behaviors.” ~ Yirser Ra Hotep ♥

Do you know who has the best timing of all? The higher power. (The universe, God, Allah, science, etc) All negative/positive things happen to make sure that you are on the right path in the long run. Events may/not happen that you want to happen, but that’s because it is what you need in order to get to your purpose. You don’t know your purpose(s) until you get there.

Jazz Jordan

I am a positive person but I get really tired of aggressive optimism. If someone’s sad, let them be sad. All emotions have purpose. Sadness isn’t destructive if not prolonged. Sadness isn’t unproductive, as it offers awareness. Telling someone to “cheer up” or “be happy” is so ineffective and patronizing. The last thing a sad person needs is for someone to judge their feelings as pointless and unappealing. Welcome sadness, just don’t let it consume you.
