Good day to all my Bloggers, Peepers, Some timers and New comers. I apologize for not keeping up with my daily logs, but I am in Nigeria now and have been doing some initiations for some people from abroad on our compound, I did inform you all that I would not be posting for a while. Well today is Sunday and we have a break here on the compound and some of the people have also left. I am using the opportunity to make a short post.
Everyday is a day of learning for me, and I find that as I get older in life, I understand life lessons faster as opposed to when I was in my teens or twenties. In those years I would have to experience things over and over again, oftentimes stumbling along life’s way before the true meaning of the lessons reveal themselves to me. As I have written here over and over again, when you are being taught life lessons, regardless of how it comes to you, either through chaos or even if it comes quietly, once you “get” the lesson, in other words, once you understand “why” you had to go through that particular experience, you would be now ready to step into the next phase of your life, and that lesson would not be repeated, but you should teach others from it. You must pass knowledge along, this is how proverbs comes about, from another person’s personal experience or life’s journey or lessons.
Never go against what your spirit tells you, never fight against your higher self! This year I did that, although I teach you all not to, I did it, out of compassion and it came at me like a fighter in a boxing ring. You have the right to ask me why did I go against my own advice, although I have already told you that it was from a space of compassion, but even still, I should have known better. No matter the wisdom that one believe they may have, God will still give the order to test the person. Why? We, people like myself, who teach share my life experiences for others to learn from, must never leave themselves vulnerable to the softness of their hearts. we must forever look to our heads for guidance, and never disobey what our heads tells us. The head is above the heart, and as such it is its master. Even if a person’s heart stops beating, they say the brain stays alive for about six minutes.
When somebody shows you themselves you must believe them, and the Jamaicans say “soup nuh good ah mawnin it cyaan good ah evening”. There is no way a person can fix, what is condemn and cannot be fixed. Leave people with their problem. Any person who disrespects their parents, can never respect an elder, they have committed the ultimate crime. When you are on a spiritual journey, it is not for the recognition of being a spiritualist or believing you have power. Being of service to humanity is not about you, it is about the evolution of others through whatever gift God may have loaned to you while you travel through life, and it is also for your spiritual evolution. Trod lightly, deal gently, do not destroy yourself, before you have even discovered yourself. I got to where I am and to who I am without any ego. Ego is a problem, and to who cannot release it, they have no where to go spiritually.
My people, I just had to share what is on my mind. Nuff Love, I will soon be back. Please give this post a read, and try to get the meaning, The Monkey
