When I was a child living in Kingston Jamaica, I wondered about my life and what would I become, who would I be? As I have written here before, my parents had a lot of plans for me for their own reasons, none of which appealed to me. I had a great imagination, I loved acting, and pictured myself in the field of theatre, I suppose most children did at one stage of their lives or the other. I knew I had some talent in those areas and I had presence and personality. There was only one thing which would have perhaps held me back and that was  stage fright, nerve.

I had played the role of the wicked stepmother in St. Andrews high school’s drama class production of Cinderella and my own spin on the dreadful woman elicited astounding laughter and loud applause with standing ovation from the audience and a “Great Job! from my drama teachers, fellow classmates and  friends, even the always frightful, stern looking Principal beamed at me and gave me a nod, so much I imagined myself for quite a while as a master Thespian ( not lesbian enuh, doan ramp wid me, oonuh read good, THESPIAN MI SEY! now Imagine me reading all this to you in an aristocratic english accent, lol).

Yes I had great aspirations for my self while in my youth and living in my sweet sweet Jamaica. It changed when I came to America, my life went on a fast track, so fast that Speedy Gonzales would have wondered and left bewildered as I sped by leaving dirt splattering in his face. It was a totally different life living in America as oppose to living in easy going, stress free Jamaica. I had no time to sit and dream as I did while I was home. A young mother I had become, and I kept it moving, I had no choice.
I want my life to matter”,  was always my thought, while visiting this earth plane, as well it should. I want my children to tell their children stories of their mother and be proud of who their mother is, (I did not say “was”, I am alive and I expect to be so for a very long time, why should it wait until a person is dead that we honor them?). I want to, while on my journey here, to give a little of myself to others. What will YOUR legacy be, how will you touch others? This is a very important question. So many of us see celebrities, famous people and as they impact our lives with whatever they do, or whatever they are famous for, we may not see or know that although they have the spotlight, are photographed or written about, for whatever legacy they are leaving to the world, in terms of their artistry or financial acquisitions, political  achievements, what ever world stage they have commanded, we also have the ability to impact others in a positive way , give of ourselves in the service to humanity.

The ability to impact others in a positive way however, is one way of how to leave behind a legacy , the best way rather. We should always strive to sow good seeds, but in reality many have created havoc, and have sullied the lives of whom they have touched with negative words and actions, and while they live, their actions and attitude is THEIR legacy which they are creating or have created, but I must tell you all that they also have their place in the world, villains as they are, wicked as they are (de duttite baby fadda), but if we do not learn from them but rather continue onto their path of destruction, then suffering for the generation to come will be what we have created. In other words, even the wretched and evil can teach us something good, from their actions .We should pray for the wisdom to be able to discern for ourselves, what was/is  the lessons that they brought about.

All my life I remember wanting to learn as much as I could, and as I learned , I wanted to share. In one of Buddha’s teachings he said “We must pass on knowledge”, and I cannot tell you all enough how eager I have been all my life to share whatever I learned with others. It took a while for me to realize that not everybody wanted to hear all that I knew, especially since most of what I wanted to share were of a spiritual nature.

 

I wanted you all to know that no one dies, the body is left behind, but the spirit lives on, and that we are conscious beings,  there is no ending to who we are, just where we live as in realms. I wanted people to know that we are multidimensional beings and we do have access to our higher selves, if only we slow down and trust, listen and accept that fact. I wanted to shout out to all, that sickness is an illusion, as well as pain, there is light within all of us and we can find it, and use it to heal ourselves and also others, but only if we WAKE up to that reality. I wanted  to tell you all that while there is a God, he is not a Tyrant nor is he demanding, we are allowed to make mistakes but we should always try to correct if we can, our errors in life and take responsibility for our actions whether good or bad, because this is the only way we can learn and therefore move on to our next stage in life of which there are many! I wanted to tell everyone who would listen that we must honor our ancestors and respect nature, in doing so we would appreciate each other better and also have a better regard toward life and perhaps each other, I wanted to share so many things.

In all things esoteric were where most of my interest layed. Overtime people have gravitated to what I have to share and I have found that I have an audience whenever I speak, and the name teacher was given to me, by all who heard me speak or read my writings, and I thought it appropriate because I had always looked at myself as such, though it may sound presumptuous, to me it was a fact, this gave me the confidence to speak more, share more. I had and still have the yearning to connect people to their higher selves through the knowledge of the universe and all things within, I do not claim to know all things, and while I believe my self a teacher, I am a forever student. We all are TEACHERS AND STUDENTS, none is separate from the other, except we may all have different things to teach each other, and some may learn a different way.

I know deep within my core being that I have not yet begin to share most of what I know. It bothered me for some time, not being able to shake awake some people, I wanted everyone to wake up as I have woken up. There was a message I received a while back from some non- physical beings and the message was “People are where they ought to be”. This message came to me, after I sat sad and thinking by myself, wondering if I was getting through to anybody. I wondered at how some people did not seem to want to grab up all these knowledge, I wondered why some are so deep in slumber and refusing to become awake, and in the middle of my thoughts came the answer. I have accepted it, but I ask you all, those who will visit this post today, What will your legacy be?

This is a short post, I exhausted you all by the post on Knowing The Higher Worlds-By Rudolph Steiner which I posted yesterday, I wanted to share him, who I believe is one of a kind with you all, it is my nature to share, I have no idea what being selfish is. So I have attempted to write a short post today, this is my way of taking it easy with you. Hotep and Peace to you all, nuff respect and nuff love!

Good questions Yazzy but what’s more important societies thoughts of you or ur thoughts on your self?

Kia yuh stay a Crack mi up. Yuh know yuh head gone sometimes don’t? 😀

Me personally I appreciate my love for myself and the person I am beneath this human clothing. I really do. I aint perfect in there but I love who I am in there nonetheless! But as we discussed validation a few post ago… it leaves an imprint/confirmation of who and what we are. It has a mirror effect. Likewise I believe our legacies should be a reflection of who we are and the imprints we have left on even one…

I wanna be a mom and my child/children a legacy to the world I leave behind. Everything I am I will bottle in that gift of life and my child/children will grace this plane with my legacy and I will grace my child/children with even more of myself and my legacy of everything gained here and throughout my life lessons.

Morning everyone. Mi dey yaha gwan panka-panka.

Teach, what I meant by Suga Minott’s wife disrespecting him, is I am sure that she said they was no money to burying and was seeking assistance. His daughter, Passion was very vocal and said it was ok, the family (or she) could have taken care of the funeral. The wife was wife on paper as Sugar was ‘carrying’ on with his life. Many a woman, many a children.

Jamaican men celebrate and crown tthemselves as something important by having a lot of children, the money women they have the more ‘respect’ they get. You notice the men of real wealth and influence, have do not ‘big-up’ this kind of living.

Women must stop running to these entertainers who show them that they cannot be tamed. No matter if you are “Miss Universe’, they will cheat and let some common girls tek step a yu. Ladies, it is not worth it, invest in some toys and keep yourselves happy.

I just heard this quote and I thought it appropriate for here.. and for now.

“We must be willing to let go of the life we planned so that we can experience the life that is waiting for us” ~Joseph Campbell

There’s so much beauty in simplicity. Living in Jamaica or on the islands, though it lacks in certain resources compared to larger nations… there is this beauty in it and there is humility in the lifestyle. Living in America is no life compared to that of the islands esp Jamaica. IBA Jamaica land of mi birt! Mi wah mi foot touch yuh soil if is decent one lass rassssssswssssseeeee time!

Thanks for the post. I certainly loved it as usual. Thinking about our legacy is very important for it shapes the the way we live.

I want my legacy to be a mom. I pray I will be someday! I feel I have already touched many lives in my short time here thru my work and for that I’m very proud and feel I have already established a legacy… so it’s now to build upon it. What I would love to work on as legacy is to grow a pair! Yup! Balance out da sweetness ya wid some raw rude girl talent! LMFAOOOOOOOOOOOOO! A c-russ!!

My legacy as I stated earlier would be what people want to remember. I (GIANT “I”) want to have a legacy of being an educated bad girl, bad ass lover and a great aunt. If I have a child then that will be my living legacy. Why?

Because even in death I want the living to know that I wasn’t a fool nor was I a spineless human being and to have those that I’ve bedded to smile when they think of me. I want me niece and nephew (maybe an offspring) to build off of what I left for them so no one take disadvantage of them.

Alright Cami, mi get it sey yu might gane sleep.

Last week,I mentioned why would a woman stay with a man, in the face of numerous buns. Anyhows, I read inthe Sunday Gleaner that John Holt’s Funeral is on pause and in the coming days, ‘we’ John public will get moe info.Only just heard that his wife, in holding onto the cheddar and nuh waan sen on cause shi upset sey John had many ‘outside’ chillvren.

My question, is if she never had the strength/courage to leave him why humilate him in death. John was a private man…My thoughts is this, I have seen the same thing with Sugar Minott, his wife tried to disrespect him in death. I stoutly believe if it is not working, cut. If the man is disrespecting you, LEAVE. DO NOT STAY and when he is dead seek revenge. Leggo bout yah wid dat. While I do not know if John left any money/will, it looks shameful that the man burial is put on hold because of money.

After Bob died, Rita came out and said Bob raped her.

True MTH. I never heard of the Holt wife singing any music so she can’t use the man earnings to deprive him of a funeral. His legacy states that he is and will be a Musical Genius in his genre of craft and held to such esteem by his country of birth and beyond…no wife can stop that Legacy.

Teach, thank you for this post. It is timely and just what I needed.

Just this morning my mind ran on a former best friend of mine. We were really close at one point. This morning I just kept thinking about her and decided to give her a call. She was surprised to hear from me. I just thanked her for being a good friend (when we were friends). I asked about life, children, job etc.

While on the outside, she seems to have the perfect life, house, garden, backyard (LOL), she was not ok, she was hurting and I too, started to hurt because she was hurting. She is the only friend that I have who has ever remembered my children at Christmas. No, I do not expect people to ‘shell-out’ gifts to children, but when we were friends, I was doing fairly well financially, so I could have bought all my children wanted.

On Sunday, my other friend reached out to me, her daughter is doing poorly in school and she asked me how I managed when Big M wasnt doing well in school. She is extremely successful financially and she told me that when she wants her children to work, she tells them of who well Little M is doing in sch (with far less resources).

What is the relevance of my stories and this post? Simple…I always thought that as a parent, the best I could do for my children is to provide for them. I heard alway the way that one should even leave a ‘legacy/wealth’ for their grand children. So I have worked like a slave, took financial risks to be this good person wanting to leave behind a ‘foundation’ for my children. Now I KNOW the best legacy I can give my children, is love, patience, my time, listen to them and support thier dreams. Money, while it is important, is not the end all be all.
