The Fixer

B33rFzqCYAIREuFSometimes when the road ahead looks very dark, anxiety levels go up.

That’s when I come to you God to help shed some light.

But if the road I’m taking vele has no street lights then I’m relieved knowing that you are by my side.

I’m taking this knee with this post because I’m also in dire need so my ancestors need to be also involved in this prayer.

Because without them I would be here, and without You they wouldn’t have been.

I light my candles and incense with this update in gratitude of what I already have.

Thank you for our business.

Thank you for our jobs.

Thank you for the shelter you are providing us.

Thank you for the water and lights that we sometimes take for granted.

Thank you for the food we eat.

Our perfect health and the rich relationships we have.

Thank you for the clothes on our backs.

And the large amounts of income that come to us through various sources, with increasing frequency.

All praise goes to you God.

I am bound to make flops along the way.

I just want to thank you for softening the falls.

Thank you for giving me the courage to fail forward.

Because there is no learning without falling. And I need to learn so I can grow to be my better self.

Continue guiding us through to our better self.

Yours in gratitude,

Amen

Stay True

It’s important to hold fast to your truth.

Sometimes life can be like this morning’s cold breeze trying to push your focus away from your truth.

Strengthen your grip.

You know what you know to be true even though your current reality shows you otherwise.

Strengthen that grip.

When your fingers tire and you begin to lose your grip.

Then Philippians 4:13.Jon-Jones-stripped-of-title-1024x640

Because what you focus on expands.

Let your truth expand.

I love you.

Thank you.

I’m sorry.

Pleas forgive me.

How Was Your Average, Perfect Day?

I read a beautiful blog post, shared by my team leader in the work group Whatsapp (how I despise these groups) titled The Perfect Average Day.

Like the English saying, I walked a mile in her shoes.

Or was it her high heels.

It was relatable.

Well written.

I loved it.

But some of my work colleagues didn’t.

Commenting about how she should use the opportunities within her company to better her living conditions.

To better HER perfect, average day.

Another commented about how there’s nothing special about her day since there are others who go through worse.

Another commented on what kind of response did the writer want? Compassion?

In the back of mind I thought, guys…it’s not a competition.

It’s not about compassion.

Why the hostility?

Is it shame, or embarrassment?

Having some parts of your life displayed like that for all to see, maybe making you feel intimidated?

Or was it because it was a woman who wrote that story?

Did she struck a cord maybe?

This was because I believed she wrote that just to share a part of her life with a receptive audience.

Just because she writes and that’s what writers do.

COUMgQmUcAAbjwN

No hidden agendas.

Maybe that’s the writer in me talking.

Maybe they are acting this way because it’s one of those photos that don’t make it to their Instagrams.

Because it has no filter.

Too real.

In the world of the Internet, there is no such thing as over sharing.

So instead of pointing out their insecurities, I decided to blog about it here.

I do my best to avoid an argument.

It’s like what this book I’m re-reading says,

“A man convinced against his will is of the same opinion still.”
How To Make Friends and Influence People. 

I’m sorry.

Please forgive me.

Thank you.

I love you.

PS. By the way here’s the link to the blog I’m talking about http://conversationswithaesha.blogspot.co.za/2017/04/the-perfect-average-day.html?m=0

“Let the dead bury their own dead…”

Just want to extend on my Tumblr that the saying that goes “it gets easier with time,”… I don’t know about that hey.

The sting is still there, but maybe not as loud as before.

It’s like sand running through your hands.

She was alive…

…Then she wasn’t.

Followed by my friend’s father.

Then my work colleague.

Death was on a roll that’s for sure.

I think I don’t want to admit that it does get better with time.

Maybe because feeling the pain is evidence that it was real.

Her being with us, being with me.

But eventually there’s going to come a time when I will question whether this pain makes sense any more.

Or if it’s denying me the joy I could be experiencing right now.

But not right now.

PS: But one day I will. Life is too short to be living in the past.

“Don’t Die With Your Music Still In You” ~ @DrWayneWDyer

Just a bit bummed about the passing of the good Dr Wanye Dyer.

But after counseling with my #joy @Phetheni we came to the understanding that he played his part in this world.

And it’s up to us to pay forward his teachings to leave where ever we are better than how we found it.

“Change the way you look at things and the things you look at change.” – Wayne Dyer

I love you.

Thank you.

The Hidden Concept Behind How Other People’s Actions Affect How You Feel

“Mirrors”

“Do you ever find yourself getting frustrated or angry with the actions of others?

Whatever you see when you evaluate other people, is a projection of what is inside of you.

When you find yourself thinking, “I wish she could make a firm decision” it is an indication of your own frustration at not being able to make a decision.

In order to recognize something in others, you must first have it within yourself.

Think about it.

Is there something that makes you particularly angry?

Why?

Look inside yourself for the source of this anger.

Even if you could change the behaviour of others, it would not resolve your feelings.

You are the only one who can change the way you feel. Trying to run away by blaming others will only prolong the problem and make it worse.

The really good news is that this “mirror” has a positive side to it.

The inspiring, uplifting things you see in other people are in you as well.

When you see in others such things as compassion, genius, beauty, caring and affection, you’re seeing a projection of yourself.

You see these things because they are a part of you.

The source of your thoughts and feelings about other people, about things, about situations, is you.

When you see darkness, it is your darkness.

When you see beauty, it is your own beauty.

Grasp this concept, and you can change your world.”

I am expansively grateful to the Universe for effortless delivering to me this article for me to absorb, reflect so to pay it forward & and return it back to the abundant Universe to I am but a physical extension of.

I Feel The Need To Go Back To The Spirit

As you read keep in mind that God can never Not Be the Universe, as much as the Universe can never Not Be God. Since God, like the Universe, is all there is.

I feel like another Conversations with God
, a story told by @_NealeDWalsch about how man should, upon walking out the door, interact with the would as if it is plastic. And can be moulded according to our desires by just simply doing every act with love.

Especially when we don’t feel “loving,” it is then when we should practice the love that is repeated refered to in Conversations with God.

Because that in itself is a Conversations with God
, for the act of “love giving” is a form of a prayer to God wich will then return back to the sender the physical equivalent of the love that was giving.

On face value this could be regarded as crap, especially when you are of the school that God only answers some of your prayers, if any, and should not be expected to give you your heart’s desires.

Because God is a punishing God, you say.

God has made it so that some of us are rich and some poor.

Going against what God has laid down for us is sinful, and therefore for the devil.

That is why we should fear God or else we will go to hell for our sins.

Only the chosen have direct communication to God, because God is over there…and I am here.

If this is the limited God of conditional love – the One who gives free will and yet punishes you for exercising this will freely – then The Complete Conversations with God
is was went for you, maybe even highly so.

It states why mankind is experiencing what it is currently experiencing, and this won’t change until the idea of Who We Are changes.

This “renewing of the mind” would be made easier if we come to know who and what God really is.

And God is love.

Eternal, unconditional, unlimited, abundance, spiritual, never ceasing, without end.

The Alpha and Omega.

It’s about time you knew the truth about your religion – because the Truth will set you free.

PS. Conversation with God is a threek Book triology, tautology I know, and reference are made to all 3 books. Hence the The Complete Conversations with God recommendation.

“love is all there is.”
