Simply Be You My Dear, I Ain’t Studdin To Be Like You

In this life, you endure so many flavors and many climates.  From bitter to sweet, cold windy chills to warm steamy afternoons.  But regardless just as the world continues to turn and the clock continues to tick, life continues to flow.  Folks will talk high and low of you.  Of what you do and don’t do, but you must reach that platform when you simply don’t care and become totally people free.  The old saying sticks and stone can break my bones but words can never hurt me is a myth.  Contrary to that cliché, words can permeate your very soul and can wound you to the core.  But when you reach the stage of true resilience and care none at all Shuga, life becomes so exhilarating and like my dear brother says, “liberated baby”.  A sweet friend of mine shared this song and the lyrics just rumbled a marathon of truth and awareness to me. “Some Kind of Way” by Jidenna is indeed a song truth and testament of living “your” life with no guidelines from others.  So celebrate your uniqueness, your eclecticism and your perfect imperfections.  Dance through your office prior to work day or dance through your entire house alone.  Have a party with yourself, just because there is simply one you and no matter how they hate, attempt to replicate you or question, you let em kick rocks and love the “you” that you are.

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

Flowing in Pure Purpose

Peace & Grace Beautiful Ones…

So in the midst of my morning routine I got to thinking how we must train our minds to follow protocol to that which is necessary to our mind, body and spirit. Just as wee ones, little children we are programmed that in the morning you wash up, brush your teeth, have your breakfast and thus your day begins… Then you have night time routine of finish your chores, do your homework and say your prayers and off the sleepville you go.  It is important that we maintain these same principles in the continual cycle of adulthood. Only difference is, you must customize the practices you apply and do it like clockwork that it had to be done in order for you to accurately and successfully flow with your day.

With an array of schedules and to do task that build by the second we sometimes get off track or skip a beat.  But what I have found to be the balance is when you lock into that routine it sets the pace and tone of your mental and emotional reaction to the occurrences of your day as they play out of life’s big screen.  Soooooooooo I encourage you to strategize an active prayer life, rather you get on your knees, or pray in bed, or scripts prayers at night in a prayer journal or simply just roam around your house having an open conversation with GOD like you are speaking to a homegirl or homeboy.  Map out some quiet time just to soak up the essence of sweet solitude.  Meditate and rest your body and still your mind.  For most this is a tedium task as we are on go mode so much we neglect to just rest.  Still your mind and shut the power off and let all thoughts slowly run out and through your fingers, freeing you of worry, deadlines, to-do’s and etc.  Listen to your breath and feel your heart beat.  Now smile and thank GOD for that right there, that’s life and he is blowing your being with “life.” Now as you continue breathing any morsel of worry blow it out as if you are blowing out a fire quietly.  Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhh… Take some time to sip on some tea and let the healing herbs lubricate you.  Listen to your favorite record or cd and dance freely and live in that moment.  This is becoming one with self, enjoying self and loving self…

Upon customizing your routine, begin to do it daily and don’t beat yourself up if you skip a beat, it has to be learned before mastered.  Also just as you pray and prepare yourself to start your day and step outside your home, just as you wash your hands before breaking bread, keep your mind and spirit cleansed to be in tune and to flow consciously and intuitively.  In every simple task is a lesson, just embrace the blessing of truly innerstanding the grand concept and lesson that is being taught.

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

The Redeeming Value in Valor

Peace  & Grace My Lovely & Beautiful Ones…

So, there has been a scriptCATION because I haven’t been able to blog lately, but trust me on lovely ones, the delay is always worth it.  Much has occurred since my last post, but here I am still yet grateful and thankful for life’s blessings and miraculous move on my behalf and for others around me.  We sometimes must conduct self-analysis our own selves and check ourselves. Just because there are familiar situations you may have experienced and aspects you feel you have experience with does not necessarily make you a master.  It tags you as experienced. But the true wise one will take each experience and learn something greater and deeper each time.  Redemption is a common aspect, tem even that we are knowledgeable of, BUT Shuga until you truly go through the treacherous trails and dark routes and shaky bridges that this life sometimes presents, you truly “inner”stand the full definitive of being redeemed and redemption.  It can be sweet and rewarding at the end, but the process like any other tedium journey present obstacles, test of faith and the structure and strength of your character, but oh my goodness gracious, the priceless and astounding plethora of joy when you overcome what could have broke you and stand tall looking at the valleys you crawled from, I am telling you, “Shuga”, you have matriculate to greater and grander.  And so the lessons continue and learn, yield and ingest you must.  Love & Blessings to you, you, you and you.

Peace & Grace Beautiful Ones,

Please accept my apologies in the delay of posting.  I never want to just post anything, it has to come deep from within and not only speak to you but must also speak to me as well.. Scripting from the spirit is not only healing but it is a release of expressing that flows through my fingers the Most High intricately places together.   Words that speak life and truth and that will also lubricate your mind to be a better you and to embrace the “you” you truly are within.  With that being said, we must stay true to ourselves and love the skin that we are in.  There is only one you and even if you are a twin, your makeup still differs in some ways.  Be grateful for the curve in your toe or your widow’s peak on your hairline.  It is most likely a trait of an ancestor.  Use it as a reminder that you are not just you, but you represent a people and legacy.  When you unseal your lips to speak, speak life and speak with light.  Although the crests of life can sometime carousel up and down and different tempos, you must simply strap up with faith, grace, mercy and all confidence of divine covering that you will flow the waves of life come what may.

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

 

Great tunes to lubricate your ears and soul…

 

Bowl of Life

 

fishes

Peace & Grace to you my lovely and beautiful ones….

We must never ignore the mere important factor of life and living.  We sometimes indirectly get entangled in the loops, swirls and tug of war that routine and life’s situations brings us.  BUT we must never ever ignore the important of simply “living”.  This thing called “life” is so precious and just as breath being carefully and intricately blown in that shell of your mortal body, it can be swiftly or gradually taken away.  I have a vision of a goldfish when it’s taken from the bowl.  He gasps and his gills are moving and constricting for air for that moisture and struggles to find that sweet pleasure of breath.  If he is not quickly placed back in, he flips around and gradually inhales and exhales slowly and as that tempo declines he succumbs.  But if he is placed in that water in time, we just whisp right along with the waves of the water and flows in his motion.  For that pure motion, give thanks.  The tempos may vary at times and sometimes that dry air and constriction to push through may be a tedium journey, but just push through to swift through the great bowl of life and living… Love & Blessings to you, you, you and you.  Monique “1MOpoeticSOUL” D.

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

hands

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.
