Wow!!!! I'm watching an old interview of Whitney Houston. It was taped in 2002. They asked her, "Where do you see yourself 10 years from now?" She said, "Retired". Well she is retired now, but not in the way she probably was envisioning. I've kept my mouth shut during this trying time, but now it's time to stimulate the mind. What is the lesson learned in the death of Whitney Houston? The lesson is "Choice". You don't get to be 48 years old not knowing that certain choices can kill either in that moment or over time. Drugs.....just happen to be her choice, but what's your choice? What are you doing that is causing you not to live your best life. What's your vice? See let me share something.....It's not about how much money we have, how much fame we have, how much people "Like" our comments, or how many "friends" we can accumulate in social media. EVERYTHING PHYSICAL will eventually kill us, either fast or slow, but we will die. It's non optional our physical bodies were born to die, either naturally or unnaturally but regardless we will die. What lives for ever is the power that lives in us. Our Spirits are Immortal, and we live forever even without a body to house our energy. Whitney Houston's Spirit lives on, but the lesson of her death lives now. Mass media will grip your minds, and steer you away from "what is so" in this moment. Make you pay attention to what does not matter. The media tore Whitney Up over the years, put her pain on blast and could care less about where she was heading as long as her story sold their advertising space and tabloid magazines. Now she's gone and the last story of her life will sell just a few more ads and then it's all done. Just "The Best Of" Cds and "Biography Movies", or "Unauthorized Books", and another dead celebrity in another 6 months to a year. All experiences are designed to teach us something. So what you learn in this experience really depends on what you focus on. Don't focus on her drug use.....I'm pretty sure about 95% of us on this page alone have done some type of "drug" taken some type of "risk" or sat by idol while someone we love kills themselves slowly based on choice.
True Story!!!! I hated Valentines Day, especially in High School. OMG I lived across the street from my High School, and it would hurt like a mug to watch all the "cool girls" walking home with their stupid balloons, and fluffy white teddy bears. I would literally cry I was so mad. I thought I was ugly, or stupid, or just unwanted in general. I felt like I would never be noticed or thought of... as "the cute one". I always felt disappointed on Valentines Day. THEN I GREW UP realized that most of the "cool girls" were sending those stupid Valentine Grams to themselves. As an Adult, I realize that Valentines Day is just one of those retail come ups, and it's not the day that matters, it's the "Way" that matters. So to all of those that love their Valentine, it's not what you buy, it's how you love. LOVE HARD, but don't make it Hard to Love because it's really about the "product" that you and your lover create together.
Where my "Broke Hustlers" at?
If money is on your mind, but not in your pocket,
it's time to plug your desires into the Dollar Socket.
If you have drive and you have vision
You must obtain your goals with deliberate precision
It's really a no brainer
run your life through a strainer
filter all that makes no sense
and continue to live life with confidence
Stop waiting for the blessings to appear
It's already two months into the year
and if you ain't got off your ass just yet
then broke you will stay, is a sure bet
Okay now what can we do to break the chain
that's got you bound and locked up your brain
Filter, Filter, Filter it all
Get rid of the bull shit, then you can ball
Until then the work is prevalent
and all that complaining bull shit is irrelevant
and yes I said shit get over it, it's just a word
Focusing on what does not matter is absurd
Many of us have read the story of a man
Who's abilities to produce miracles most can not understand
This man was of flesh, just like you and I
Unfortunately for us he had to die
But fortunately for all his story was told
but most still don't get it, even the very old
It really is a pathetic pitty
How so many of us live blindly in this city
Looking at others with wishing on our heart
still not getting a clue about doing our own part
Still complaining about not having your way
still living your life play by play
Play by play with no real coach in sight
Just a fruitless play with no win in flight
Holding on to ignorance so very tight
I hope some of us today finally get it right
You are a creator it's in your spiritual DNA
I promise if you listen you can have it your way
Observation of life have you shaken
but believing in what you "see" can have you mistaken
So with love and honor I share with you
these simple words that I've been compelled to do
on my knees I create these lyrics for you
because I understand what you go through
But go through the experiences for the lessons learned
Don't go through life with lessons burned
You can't make butter if you don't churn
Get Up, Get Free, IT IS YOUR TURN.......
Love and Light

Have an awesome day.
A friend of mine on Facebook asked his subscribers, if 5 year engagements were okay, or if we would have a problem with that.
This what I said.......It depends. Some may make the mistake of sharing financial responsibility before they get married. Non religious people would have no interest in "rushing " in to it. They just enjoy feeling married. Perhaps 5 years will get us out of debt... so we can start financially clean. I will put it like this, marriage certificates are basically vouchers to cash in in the other person if they die, and holds each other financially responsible for each other. There's no big incentive there. The hoopla is for the ego. The ego runs ramped as the chosen one rides off with her prince charming until happily ever after......basically death due us part. Point blank some of us have been in life long engagements with our personal goals and are still not even close to finally saying "I do" to the visions they have set. So a five year engagement should be fine.
