Lesson of the Greens



Peace & Grace Beautiful Ones,

It is amazing and sometimes quite astonishing how God moves right before your eyes.  In the midst of a mediocre morning, a client walks in and requests services.  Now I am never quick or one to judge but sometimes you find yourself assuming one’s wants or needs.  But placing my feelings aside, not only did I provide the service but provided it with kindness.  My plant that sits in my office always catches the attention of those that are plant lovers and of course the elders.  It’s “life” and reminds me that even though much can be in the atmosphere and my current job maybe a bit dark, dismal and depressing, it is the one thing that sheds light.  The lady and I begin to chat all on the topic about my plant and her plants and planting… We begin swapping stories of growth and nurture tips caring for them… She shared with me the protocol to buying a bamboo plant.  One is to go give it to a friend and the growth process and blossoming effects reflects that of the friend that gifted it to you.  She then began to share with me a bamboo plant that a former friend gave her and one she gifted to the friend.  The plant that her friend gave her did not blossom and was stunted, but the one that she gifted her friend flourished and was beautiful…  Turns out the friend was actually her foe and she was always true to her friend.  I stood in amazement and commented, “Oh my God has a mysterious way at times of showing us things.  That he takes a living object as such to teach us and show us something right before our eyes, as simple as a living plant. “I concluded with aiding her with help and she told me thank you..

She took my hand and says” thank you so much and you have a blessed day and you are such a sweet young lady, you’re too kind.” I respond back you are welcome and thank “you”.  It is moments such as these that actually give me the will to keep on going.  It reminds me, that although you go through sooooooooooooooooooooooo much and endure sooooooooooooooooooooooo much crazy and unjust treatment from others, that there are still a condensed number of beings that are kind and that God still speaks through them to reassure you, that he is very much alive.   I got to thinking and I remember I told her well, I guess I’m a good friend to myself, because my plant is coming along nicely.  So what am I say? Well Shugas, sometimes we may seek the urgency of others to be a friend to us and in fact sometimes truly need them, but what the Creator wants you to do is rely on “you” sometimes and trust “Him”.  Regardless it’s always you and the holy trinity and self-trinity.  They never leave you… Me, Myself & I then there’s the sacred  Father, Son, & Holy Ghost.  Love & blessings to you, you, you and you.

The Badge of Truth


Peace & Grace Beautiful Ones…

My heart bleeds red tears of disappointment in those that pride themselves on wearing the friendship badge whose loyalty diminishes when one’s (I’m) down… BUT my soul delights in gratefulness for those that live in action of true friendship, true sisterhood and true brotherhood… Valleys don’t last a lifetime and through the experience I’m able to get a glance of the mountain ahead.  Give thanks for that hike in humility and sincere love in those appointed beings that never let my hand go.  Embracing their sincerity truly is the blanket that shelters from some cold situations this life can bring.  So love on those beings that still yet walk in the storms and tread the uneven roads and simply hold your hand and lend their ears.  Love & Blessings to you, you, you and you… Monique “1MOpoeitcSOUL” D.

Tending Your Garden



Peace & Grace to each of you beautiful beings,

Graciously grateful for the appointed beings in my life and their purposes to pour into me at the specific times they are imperatively needed..When one is a willing and obedient vessel,that not only blesses one, but reminds you of how amazing Gods message can be delivered in the package tailored just for you but it restores your sometimes withered faith…. It takes a genuine yet raw but wise person to grab and hold the attention of some and truly listen.  We must always tend to our garden of those that live and bloom in our soils.  Why you must always maintain and prune your garden (people and mindsets) never question the weeds (bad/negative buds and mentality) that you pluck.  It may sometimes seem abandoned but its in that open time and season of harvesting that you can consciously and critically accept what you hear and what truth is.  Stay in tune always and never turn your natural and spiritual ears off… Sometimes it necessary to mute the world to marvel at the majesty of the master as he works. Love & Blessings to you, you, you and you. Monique “1MOpoeticSOUL” D.

Respiration of Resilience



Peace & Grace To You My Beautiful Ones…

The power within the human spirit is majestically miraculous.  We sometimes unknowingly ignore and don’t realize the strength that abides deep in the fibers of our beings.  True now, we all inhabit different levels of strength, but that depends on your faith magnitude intertwined with the maturation of your mind and character as a person.  But there is something amazingly authentic when you recognize your strengths are greater than your weaknesses and that you not only rise above adversity but you thrive in truth and tenacity.  If you reciprocate the plantings of purposeful seeds in your garden of life, you shall continually ingest the grandness of your garden of virtue as you respirate your resilience. Love & Blessings to you, you, you and you.  Monique “1MOpoeticSOUL” D.

What Are Your Feeding YOUR Being



Peace & Grace to each of you my lovely and beautiful Shugas.. One simple question I propose to you… Before you take this bite of wisdom, still your body, clear your mind and take a few sweet inhales and exhales and give thanks for that breath.. Now ponder on this question.. What components are active and inactive in the nourishing of “your” mind, body, soul and innermost spirit?

Love & Blessings to you, you, you and you. Monique “1MOpoeticSOUL” D.

Pretty Peace & Beautiful Bliss

Oh, my lovely Shugas, here’s a extra dose of goodness to share with you.  I dare you to stop what you are doing right now and go outside, stand still and locate the sun and gaze at it in pure silence.  Smell a new day Shuga and in that sweet stillness, cast out all of everything in the realm and only see the creation of the Most High and watch the birds sing a few tunes for you as they fly through their natural stage of the sky.  Let the wind smooch you on the cheek and enjoy the moment.  Listen to this tune and I promise your soul will smile at the reflection in your eyes.


Love & Blessings to you, you, you and you. Monique “1MOpoeticSOUL”D.

The Betterment of the Blossom



Peace & Grace To Each Of You Beautiful Ones,

When new blooms unveil, not only does strength introduce itself to both you and others, but the viability and necessity of the metaphoric phase.  The not so glam and attractive phase is the most imperative, for it is when your wings begin to develop and form.  Flying is graceful, but butterflies endured the cocoon periods post catapillaring their way along the journey.  You cannot see the glory, if you ignore the story and struggle of flight and embrace flying.  Love & Blessings to you, you, you and you.
