A Quiet Power, Peaceful Confident America

usa-1439915__180

America, the time has come for us to show this nation, this land, how much we love and appreciate Her. The time has come for us to raise Her from fear and hate. There are millions of us, with many different talents and skills. We can use those skills and talents to build each other up and not destroy. We can use those skills and talents to construct and not destruct. We do not have to self-destruct; we are fearfully and wonderfully made, intelligent and powerful, to allow the darkness that is creeping into our nation to continue to pervade, influence and take over us. Let’s get to work!kennedy-1341305__180We begin by changing our mindset; the way we think and do things. Are we not tired of being afraid and hateful? Are we not tired of feeling and being helpless? Are we not tired of hurting each other? Are we not tired of going around in circles? Do we not realize and understand that there is more to us than our anger, prejudice, stigma and depression?  We are terrified and broken but we cannot give up or give in to darkness, fear, depression and pulling each other down. We have to start thinking about how we can rise up from the dust and build each other up. We do not have to tear each other down. We do not have to tear each other apart. We do not have to bring division amongst ourselves. We do not have to crush and suppress each other. We do not have to look down on each other for any reason whatsoever. We do not have to glory in and gloat in other people’s failures.

Instead, we can choose to accommodate and assist each other. Instead we can choose to not take out our pain, agony, insecurities, and fears out on each other. Instead we can strive to make the brave choice to look at the root of our problems and torments raging within us, and fix them.  We can all become assistants and assist each other in so many ways than one. Imagine how you can help this nation grow. Imagine how you can serve. What if you didn’t just stop there? What if you acted on your imagination and dared to bring it to life? Imagine if you decide to step out of yourself and go out of your way to improve someone else’s day. The effect will be endless, so much so that you will never be able to measure it, because each of our actions take on a life of their own once we put them in motion in our nation. Our positive, everyday deeds will bless uncountable numbers of people we will never meet, never know, but will touch and change. The blessings have to start from somewhere, from someone, from us. Let us be the blessing to this beautiful land we all call home.

Any one of us can choose to assist another if we choose to discipline our hearts, minds, spirits and souls, to do so. Imagine a nation where we all assisted, where we all made a choice to become less and less selfish, more and more selfless, putting another’s feelings or situation before our own because at the time it was the right thing to do? We do not have to be a tit for tat nation, always ready to pull each other down and apart. Let us not allow fear to make us become or act like anyone else but our better self. Let us make every effort not to contribute to negativity, even when we feel put down. Let us take a deep breath, have integrity and focus on recreating ourselves and building ourselves into a quietly powerful and peacefully confident nation. It starts with each of us as individuals.

Instead of looking for opportunities to be vindictive and hurtful, let us develop a mindset to assist, support and encourage each other. Let us be the assistant that diffuses a situation before it escalates into something very unpleasant.  Will you choose to be that one person who determines to send out good energy anyway, regardless of a tough situation? Will you choose to summon up the courage to destroy unkindness with kindness? Will you summon up the guts to simply walk away, and not hurt back, when the pain becomes too much? Let us make decisions that will fix things amongst us and in our nation in a way that will enhance our lives and that of others. It is extremely difficult, but we can learn to not hurt others even when we are hurting. No matter how much people are hurting us, or have hurt us, we can learn and determine to take the higher ground and not lash back. An extremely difficult thing to do, but not impossible; it takes a lot of consistent and determined effort and practice. It takes Quiet Power, Peaceful Confidence. We are a hurting nation, a hurting people, and we desperately need a dynamic jolt into becoming a victorious nation, and thriving individuals. How are we going to accomplish that? Let’s start thinking, imagining and putting it all to work and to serve our nation.quote-1444099_1280Genuine fears have made us build walls which have turned into deeply rooted unhealthy pride. That type of deeply rooted fearful pride becomes part of our existence, like a second skin. We do not realize that it is directing our everyday decision, creating consequences in our lives that come back to bite us. They bite us because our decisions were made out of false confidence, false security, and false existence.  We have crash landed and we are in need of power, real power, to arise as a nation, as a people. I have the audacity to believe that God has created us with innate power to brilliantly soar and we can do just that, without destroying each other. We need power to arise and take off, and we can do so in the God that we say we trust.usa-1491732__180We need Quiet Power, Peaceful Confidence which is simply the art of attaining deep self-control and deep peace in our spirit.  It is the power to emanate positive light. It is the power to be careful about what kind of ripple effect we bring into the lives of our family, friends, community, office and nation.  We are all capable of Quiet Power, Peaceful Confidence.  The difference is that some of us make a deliberate choice to cultivate and nurture it and some do not. Like almost everything else, the more you practice the better you become at it.  It is a journey of deliberately exercising the mind and emotions to always rise above and do better, and the long-term effects are absolutely worth it. It is allowing spirit, not nature, to take over. It is about the power to forgive. There are so many ways to be vindictive, to lash out and to strike back, but there is only one way to forgive—a deliberate determination to let things go. Quiet Power, Peaceful Confidence, it is constant self-denial to resist afflicting pain on others even when you have the means to do so. It is power to not rejoice in the pain of those who have unjustly hurt you.  It is incredible power that does not come cheap, that is deliberately nurtured. It is self-control at its highest. Quiet power, graceful power, forgiving power—it takes practice and it takes guts.

We live in a ruthless, selfish and self-indulgent age where Quiet Power, Peaceful Confidence is seen as weakness, but it is not. While others are spending large amounts of energy scrambling to device hurt, while they spend endless time manipulating and searching for ways to destroy others, those who practice Quiet Power, Peaceful Confidence,  are spending time and energy seeking courage, wisdom, and strength on how to remain steady, quiet and powerful, filled with virtue from within. The emotional, mental and spiritual pain is phenomenal. It crushes your soul to not hit back, to not tell them like it is, and instead respond with grace. It is against our ordinary human nature, but if you choose to constantly respond negatively to others who treat you badly, then they have you under their control and you will become exactly what you did not want to become: their plaything. Behave oppositely to their expectations; perk up, be joyful, assist when you can, and let the ugly that has been dished out roll gracefully off of you. Now that is true liberty and freedom; rising above our torment and rage, to assist each other.

For our own sake and for the sake of humanity, especially the children and the next generations of children, let us use our freedom to take responsibility for how we react or could potentially react in a self-serving way. We have all been shaped, formed and defined by family, friends, schools, jobs, media, relationships, and all the latest this and that, whatever the latest norm is. Now it is time for us to define ourselves. You have been reminded that you have work to do, that it starts with you and within you. Every single choice we make matters! We matter, and so do other people.

Take a deep breath and allow situations to mold you into that better person that you can be. Freely give good energy and kindness, even when it is met with resistance, and do not resist it when it is freely given to you. Learn from painful, extremely difficult situations and allow them to mold you into a beautiful person, and not into bitterness, anger, depression and blame. Finger pointing is easy, it is ugly and it is natural, but taking a deep breath and deeply searching within on how to do better in a situation is supernatural and priceless. Quiet Power, Peaceful Confidence, is not forcing you, neither is it telling you what to do, but instead it is nudging you into what you already have in you: beauty, virtue and intelligence to do that which is right. Deep down, you already know right from wrong. Quiet Power, Peaceful Confidence is a resource for when you need refueling, a fortress for when your mind is going crazy with anger, thoughts of revenge, and feelings of hatred.

We have a journey to embark on, you and me, for our own sake and for the sake of the world. The journey is to make our nation a healthier environment for all of us, and as we do it creates a ripple effect into how we are with our families and others around us. We can choose to hold our demons in check or, better yet, rid ourselves of them entirely. We can choose to not take our pain, agony, insecurities, and fears out on each other.usa-1491725__180It is worth developing and building Quiet Power, Peaceful Confidence. At the end of the day, we will have to find a moment in our lives when we make a decision about what type of person we are, who we have become and will become as a nation, and at what cost.

What cost do we want to live with? The cost to assist or to hurt each other?

Gifted Beyond the Darkness and the Storm

martinique-206916__180

There is no denying that you have been through too much! There is no denying that it has been too long, in fact, taken too long for the chains to be broken. There is no denial the inhumanity that has been dished and handed out. There is no denial the injustice that has flooded and buried way too many lives.  But you have come too far for only some of the chains to be broken! All the chains must be broken physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually. You are too gifted, too talented, too powerful, to allow only some of your chains to be broken! You want to take them all off! Some did it, so can you! You deserve it, you are worth it! You were created from the mind of divinity, with a divine purpose, not with chains!martin-luther-king-180477__180

You can choose,  you should choose, you must choose, to take the higher ground, for the sake of generations past, existing generations and generations to come. Taking the higher ground does not mean cowardice, or stupidity; no, it is power from within. It is Quiet Power, Peaceful Confidence knowing that you have to preserve your strength and your power for what is ahead. It is courageous silence knowing that there is wisdom in waiting and planning and subduing oneself until the opportune time to express your intelligence, and execute purpose and destiny. It is Peace that you have more than what it takes to overcome the storm and raise the bar for generations to come! That, gifted one, is how you overcome the darkness and the storm.

barack-obama-1162861__180

It is Confidence that you are too gifted to waste your time on things that have no positive long term lasting effect! It is power to break every mental, spiritual, physical and emotional chain so that you do not react to everything and everyone to your own detriment, that of your loved one’s, and those looking up to you. It is Quiet Power, Peaceful Confidence to preserve and build your dreams in the darkness and storm when you have been denied your humanity, because you know that you have been destined to raise the bar for millions, and to validate those who made the sacrifice.jackie-robinson-1172118__180

You are gifted beyond the storm and the darkness. Don’t turn in on yourself. Do away with the things that cause you to self-destruct. You are worth more than that. You have been sculpted, crafted and created for far too much. You are a finished work of power but you have to see that for yourself! Do not wreck yourself. Of what good are you then to yourself and to those who wait for, and need your power, intelligence and brilliance?

drugs-908533__180

Don’t turn in on your loved ones. Do not turn in on your community. Throw away the things that cause you to kill your own and leave you with nothing but aching emptiness, more rage, more pain! Is it worth it? Make it count! Make your mistakes, make the chains, make the inhumane way you have been treated count! Do not become anyone’s victim! It is not worth it, gifted one! Because you have too much to give. Don’t die with it and do not allow another to die with theirs. Uplift! Make the storm and darkness count! Use them as stepping stones! Use them to elevate yourself and others, and not destroy or take more lives! Build! Support! Empower!

firearm-409252__180

Don’t look for the easy way out, dig in and dig very deep. Gold was not developed in a day. Gold does not wither. What is the positive lasting effect you want to leave? The answers lie within you. Your choices are yours to make. You, and only you, must decide which route you are going to take.Are you going to hate to the death, or are you going to love to your last breath? Which one is more empowering? Which one is more enriching? Am I telling you anything you do not already know? No, I don’t think so! But I am here to remind you, because sometimes when the storms rage and the darkness becomes too heavy, we forget who we are, we forget where we come from, we forget what we are made of, we forget those who went through for our sake, we forget that there is a generation coming behind us and we forget that we have to leave a firm foundation for them, so that their gifts can shine too!children-486980__180

Whether or not you believe it, whether or not some like it, or some do not like it, you were created with dignity, power, wisdom and strength, by the Master Builder, the Master Craftsman Himself. You also, not just some, breathe His breath. He did not leave anything out of you and He did not create you any less than another. He saw it fit to painstakingly create you gifted one. Do you see it? Can you see it? Do you see it now? You cannot afford to fade away, Divinity had you, and still has you in mind!

Stay and vibrate with the brilliance, gift, intelligence and power you have been given. Vibrate until you overcome the storm and the darkness. Vibrate until generations rise and are secure. Vibrate until you have established the peak that countless have given their lives for! Vibrate past the storm and the darkness, gifted one!

Vibrate gifted one! The storms and the darkness cannot defeat you, unless you give them permission to do so!

What if I put divine abilities within you? How will you know?

How will you know if you do not stop and think about it?

But you will only know if you turn to me, valuable son, precious daughter, priceless child. The choice to turn to me for power to become your ultimate best, is yours. It is your free-will.

I have knocked on the door of your heart, reminded you of my existence, reminded you of how valuable, precious and priceless you are to me.  I have reminded you of who you are to me. The rest is up to you. Will you take my hand, tap into me and try me?

Will you take His victorious right hand, unconditional love, unspeakable joy, indescribable peace and overcome?

It is Your Job To Rise Up!

IT IS YOUR JOB TO RISE UP!

Every time you feel that urge, that kick, that nudge, and that yearning, to do something extraordinary, or more precisely, something that you know is being divinely inspired within you, what or who keeps you from acting on, or fulfilling that purpose and inspiration?

It is time for you to get into motion, it is time for you to move from where you are now, to where you ought to be tomorrow.  In order to make this happen, there must be movement on your part, not stagnation. You must formulate a plan, gather your tools, with zeal and passion! It is time to strategically place yourself to take off and take flight from where you are to where you are supposed to be. It’s time!

What tactics do you have in place? What type of people are you surrounded by, and what do they really do for your mind, soul, body and spirit? Will they pull you down, tell you it’s impossible, or will they build you and support you? What kind of energy are they emanating towards you? Will they assist you, can you trust them, can you share parts of your dream with them? Should you even mention it to them? Who can you work with to take your flight? Will they rejoice for you when it is your time to shine? Will they equip you with what you need to propel forward?

Fulfilling your dreams and purpose is a deliberate pattern with planning and timing. Every flight needs something turned on, something switched on. But every time you try to take your flight, there are things that plague you, pull you back and pull you down. Why not connect with God and see what power you are really made of? You might just be blown away and realize what you have been missing all these years!

“Strive to make the brave choice. Look at the root of the problems and troubles and torment raging within you. Take your eyes off what others are doing to you and focus on cleaning yourself up and growing beautifully.” ~The Reminder: Quiet Power, Peaceful Confidence

Take flight from self inflicted abuse.

Take flight from violation and abuse at the hands of others.

Take flight from low self-worth.

Take flight from finger-pointing and blame.

Take flight from being a victim of others and your own self-destructive habits and behaviors.

Your time is here!  It is your job to rise up and take off!

No Consciousness Without Pain

 

depression-1252577__180

You can agree with the labels or you can repel and deflect them! You can allow them to keep you bowed down, OR NOT!

In The Reminder: Quiet Power, Peaceful Confidence, it is a lot about the gift of being able to point at yourself to perform a deep soul searching to become better, and not focus on the other people’s meanness and idiosyncrasies. After all you do not know what ails them, what truly torments them, or what demons plague them. You do not know how, when or where their agony and insecurities took over them. Quiet Power, Peaceful Confidence says you will feel the weight of their behavior and how they treat you, but make a deliberate choice to use that weight to crush your own idiosyncrasies and grow on your path to gaining Quiet Power, Peaceful Confidence.

Many times we find ourselves in situations where others treat us as though we are beneath them, and that we are not worth the ground that they walk on. We are not worth the room that they are in neither are we worth the air that they breathe. Our very presence annoys them, and when we speak, our words have no value to them. Our voice is meaningless, and our soul is worth nothing, as far as they are concerned. The emotional, mental and spiritual pain at such treatment can be phenomenal.

How should we react to such people? How should we respond? Should we respond at all? It crushes your soul to not hit back, to not tell them like it is, but instead respond with grace. In the spirit of The Reminder, in order for one to develop Quiet Power, Peaceful Confidence, one must have a type of mindset. One that quietly and kindly deflects what others are doing to you. It is a disciplined quietly powerful mindset that wisely asks us to react differently from how we would typically and justifiably react in anger, in a tit for tat manner, when people have measured us and judged us according to their own standards and according to them we have fallen short of being treated with dignity. The mindset that the book advises goes thus.

If someone has the right to be cold, I have the right to be warm. If they have the right to hate, I have the right to love. If they have the right to be uncaring, then I have the right to be caring. ~The Reminder

I know it hurts, and it can be excruciating. Sometimes even I fall short of such a beautiful mindset. It is against our ordinary human nature; however, we can choose to be extraordinary, take the pounding, knowing deep within, that we are being crushed into becoming a beautiful person. If you choose to constantly respond negatively to others who treat you badly, then they have you under their control and you will become exactly what you did not want to become: their plaything. Behave oppositely to their expectations; perk up, be joyful, assist when you can, and let the ugly that’s been dished out roll gracefully off you. Now that is being in charge and in control.

In other words, you do not accept their abuse, but you allow their words and actions to penetrate just enough. You do not deny the pain they create inside you, but you take it and use it to force yourself to decipher what lessons are to be learned and how best you can personally grow from their myopic view of who you truly are. As you do so, one day, you will realize that the things that used to bother you, the things that made you so mad, the labels people put on you, the names they called you, the category they put you in, the stigma, stereotyping and prejudice and biases against you, that caused you so much pain and embarrassment, no longer hold power over you. They have been rendered ineffective; Quiet Power, Peaceful Confidence has grown inside you. You have persevered and endured and have built in yourself a self-realization, solid character, and good temperament, which you continue to develop every day. You will find that you can genuinely laugh things off when others are taking a jab at you. You can still love yourself when others despise and reject you.

The gift and art of quiet power, peaceful confidence from within is not cheap. It does not happen overnight and true virtue, which comes from that, is deliberately nurtured; it is self-control at its highest. ~The Reminder

  • Feel the pain and use it to self-discover and grow.
  • Feel the pain but discipline yourself to deflect and not retaliate.
  • Feel the pain but use it to thrive in love, kindness and patience.
  • Feel the pain, but do not focus on who is causing it, instead use it, and zone in on coming to the consciousness of who you truly are and who you truly should be, your unique self!

There is no coming to consciousness without pain. Everything that irritates us about others can lead us to a better understanding of ourselves. ~Carl Jung

Are you ready to grow?

Developing Quiet Power, Peaceful Confidence

sunset-summer-golden-hour-paul-filitchkin

Multitudes of us on this earth, but who are we truly? What have we really become? What do we really stand for?

The state of Self-actualization, Quiet Power, Peaceful Confidence do not come cheap. It is divine. It is born out of extremely tough, agonizing and deep soul-searching situations. It takes practice and deliberate effort at developing a mindset that works towards love, peace and kindness.  It takes allowing our spirit, mind, and soul, being chiseled daily. While painful and agonizing, and completely going against our carnal nature, Quiet Power, Peaceful Confidence seeks to develop the True, Spiritual and Beautiful Self hidden within us. It asks you and me to look within and tap into the spiritual part of our being and when we do so, in time, with much practice, as we tune and tap into our own spirit, we develop the ability to take our eyes off other people, take deep confident breaths and do that which is the opposite to unkind situations. We can control ourselves and our reactions towards others and what they do and say to us. We can develop peaceful strength to deflect the terrible things that are done to us. It is difficult and does not happen overnight, but it can be done, minute by minute, hour by hour, day by day, week by week, month by month, and year by year.  Spiritually for me it takes God to take over my carnal nature, and in my tangible experience, it works.

Self-actualization, Quiet Power, Peaceful Confidence come from deliberately digging deep within and HONESTLY facing who and what we have become, and making a deep quiet determination to become a better person who is capable of withstanding others in a peaceful way. Quiet Power, Peaceful Confidence, is developing the power to forgive, and the strength to genuinely offer a helping hand even when we ourselves are hurtingIt is the willingness to create a positive, peaceful and healing atmosphere, in the face of unkind and hostile situations. This is not mentally or emotionally easy but when we decide to tap into the True Self, which I believe is created by Divinity, we develop the Quiet Power, Peaceful Confidence, and ability to create positive effects in what has every potential to naturally become negative, destructive and unkind.  A lot of  how we react depends on our spiritual beliefs or source, if indeed we have any at all.

Think on these questions.

  • Where and who do you turn to for the supernatural?
  • Who and what do you draw peace and strength from?
  • Do you have a spiritual realm you draw from, that you can use as your comfort?
  • Do you have a spiritual source that you can delight in, that is your firm foundation when everything around you is falling apart?
  • What will keep you steady and still when everything around you is spinning out of control?
  • What or who will keep you intact when all hell breaks loose?

 Now ask yourself:

  •  With all my knowledge, intellectual power, technological know-how, what have I really become?
  • To what or who am I appending my soul, spirit, and life?How do I nurture my mind?
  • What do I fill my mind with?
  • Who and what do I gravitate towards for peace, wisdom, strength, courage and joy?
  • What images do I worship? What do they do for me?
  • What or who motivates me, inspires me, steers and directs my motives and intents?
  • What do I really stand for?
  • What does my foundation really look like?
  • Am I grounded in anything? If so, what does it look like?
  • What does it really do to me and/or for me?

Nine out of ten chances we will manage our emotions and channel our choices and decisions from whatever or whoever directs us spiritually, mentally and emotionally.

REMEMBER, our lives are not cheap!
