There are times in one’s life when they have to take time to introspect!. Why are certain things happening to me?…am I the cause of my poverty? Do I make mischief in other people’s life, do I suffer from too much SCHADENFRUEDE?, Am I homeless because I am paying my karmic debts? When I placed Obeah on my neighbor because her child passed her class and mine did not, did God take note that day?, Why did I have to sleep with my sister’s boyfriend?, Am I reaping badness because of that, even though she hasn’t found out?, Why did I curse my mother?, Why did I think that I could test Obara Meji and all would be well?, These are things that some of us should contemplate, and know that every Action causes a Reaction…This is true.
I have come into contact with many different personalities through out my years, but in all my years so far I have met more bad than good, and the sad thing is that most of the bad ones have been women. Evil Delilah’s coming to me requesting to do bad deeds for them, things I cannot mention here. Of course I have NEVER EVER done any such thing for them, because as you all know, Obara Meji advocates good work not bad!!.
Recently a popular entertainer in Jamaica was locked up, and charged with one count of murder. There are allegations (allegedly), about other charges that will be filed against him when he appears in court. I have never liked his music although I believe him to be very talented, but there was something about him, I could not stand. Now while I realize that there is such a thing as Innocent until proven guilty, I am not surprised that these things are happening to him. Old time Jamaican people has an adage that says “The Higher The Monkey Climb Ah De More Him Expose”, and I believe that this old saying fits this situation. Every human being represent a particular energy and when you start disregarding people and possibly believing yourself above people, even disregarding God, this is when God and his team will step in and cut you down. There are numerous stories of this man beating people, taking pictures of women in some sexually degrading positions doing things to him that you would only see in a porn movie and then releasing the pictures (allegedly), for all to see, laughing at their pain. Then there are the threats, and blatant disregard for anything living and breathing!, he was some type of God in his own twisted mind!.
Possibly there was a method to his madness!. Probably he subscribed to the mindset that the more controversial you are the more publicity you get, I mean let’s be for real, this method DOES work for most!. Yet while this maybe so, what he did not realize is that he created a negative energy, not only with his art, (the words to most of his songs were pretty graphic), but with his everyday living. He attracted people around him and who became a part of his team only heightened the negative energy he continuously fed. There were no balance. He became the example of who NOT to become when parents scolded their children. He became his own victim unbeknownst to him. These allegations may or may not be true, that is not the point of this post. We all are responsible for our lives as adults, and as such we have to be careful of the energies we create in our space and also be mindful of the energies that we invite into our lives. We have to be watchful of the people who come in and out of our lives and also examine our minds to see if we are reaching too far above our heads. We cannot ever allow our actions to negatively impact others. To do this, is to set ourselves back on the Wheel of Existence. We have to weigh our selves, and by this I mean JUDGE our selves continuously and consistently, and walk through life creating Good Energy, so that others can feel the cleanliness of our space.
What you put out in life is certainly what you will receive, and that is a fact. This particular Dance Hall Artist lived on controversy, he loved it, and so his own life has been plagued by the same, but I am sure that there are people who genuinely love him and they are feeling the pain of what he is now going through, not remembering of the pain HE inflicted (allegedly) on others and laughed with his cronies about. Through his actions many lives have been affected. My father use to tell us when we were young and if we did anything stupid, “Yuh ah smell yuh arm” which meant that we were getting too big for our beeches, Jamaican parents taught their children with proverbs. This entertainer was not content with the gift he was given by God,as a matter of fact he publicly denounced God. He received a great platform to send a message and he used it it convict himself and others. He has proven to be a disgrace and has left a bad taste in the mouth of others. Be careful of what you say, what you think and what you do!.The Earth is alive and pulsating, what we do here is being recorded somewhere!…Although he convinced most people of his Intelligence, The proof was not in the pudding as the saying goes….My, How the mighty have fallen!!!.
