Don’t Get Carried Away

June 26, 2014 1 comment

In the serenity or bustle of life the leaves may be blown away by the slightest of a gentle breeze or the tempest of the strong winds. Many doctrines, news reports, beliefs and doubts will seek to promote themselves as masters of one’s life such that your trajectory in life is not determined by you but by the fears planted within one’s life course. In time the strongest of the leaves which is not fed wilts and the gentlest of the breeze will carry it away.

In life decide what you believe in and stand strong by your standards. Life is not always poetic and romantic in most cases it will prove to be filled with storms and obstacles not meant to urge you on but to wilt your attempt to greatness. Greatness is not the achievement of the impossible but the fulfillment of one’s potential. The fulfillment of one’s potential is not in the strength of one’s stance but in the connection to the roots that nourish your beliefs. Within each passing moment the world will change, new concoctions will be stirred and fed to the world but do not be swayed by the latest hint of wisdom that drowns a nation but be convinced by the truth that empowers the roots.

In you stay in life, the sun will increase its heat, the winter will bring a chill to occasions but stay strong, connected to your roots that nourish who you are. In the tempest of the moment do not be convinced by the argument but be convinced by the truth that has no doubt. If you do not stand or stay connected to your roots you will be carried away from that which was yours. Life will sway you into a breeze like a wilted leaf and your destiny will be decided by the will of the winds. Every gossip has its merit buts its standard may not be for your standing. Test all things never be indoctrinated by a small stream of water, it may have no eternal source but may just be a stream created from a bucket of water poured on the ground. Test the source of the water before you believe in its power to nourish you. True nourishment is not in the temporary but in the everlasting.

Don’t get carried away with every word that passes your way. Any journey must prove itself before it is taken. The wise know that the victory of the journey is not in arrival but in the map. Do not be swayed by that which has no plotting that you can see, or else you may be dumped in the ditches of life and never have a fighting chance. Find the map and see the alternative routes, you might one day in your journey need to change course. Know where you come from before you know where you are going, not every destiny is ripe with riches but where you come from sets the standard of what you must achieve in equality or beyond.

In time the word does change but let your roots be strong. Do not be carried away.

As a result, we are no longer to be children, tossed here and there by waves and carried about by every wind of doctrine, by the trickery of men, by craftiness in deceitful scheming;

The Beauty of A Foundation

January 27, 2014 Leave a comment

Don’t be in a rush to build or buy anything unless if you have mastered the art of foundation building. The patience of patience is no in the ability to wait but in the wisdom to allow time for the foundation to be set.

In too many things we believe if we are waiting then we can be labelled as wise. Waiting for the sake of waiting does not help you or anyone. Any person on the planet can wait, but only those who know when the foundation is done know when to stop waiting. A person can wait for a promotion their entire life but the promotion might never come. Every promotion has a foundation and if that foundation has been built but the promotion has not come then one must move on. Waiting is not the essence of time but the prelude to the completion of the foundation.

Many people believe that if they wait long enough then their reward will come without realizing that the reward is dependent on the foundation that has been laid. If the foundation has not been laid the reward never comes. One does not become the footballer of the year because you were patient but one attains that status because you laid the foundation within the patience. Good things are delivered within time but in that time a seed for harvest must have been planted. A man does not retire willingly because it is time but will volunteer to retire if the foundation of his future has been secured. Think of patience as a vast sea of time in which one can pursue their targets and lay the foundation, such that when the sea has been crossed the reward will then be accessible depending on the foundation laid.

The beauty of a foundation is that once it is built it cannot be shaken or taken away from you easily. Removing the strong foundation of a house is not the weak person’s mission, it takes supreme effort. Likewise, the foundation of the mind cannot be shaken or taken away from you. What you build within the patience of life which is laid on a foundation is yours to keep. A company may be taken away from an entrepreneur but the foundation of starting a new company can never be removed.

Be Free

January 21, 2014 Leave a comment

Today as I sat down watching the traffic zooming past and people going on about their business my mind began to wonder; I began to think of what really controls all these people. There seemed to be an invisible force that dangles each and every person to go in one direction or the other and pursue certain activities without fail as if there is some walls put in place to ensure we don’t cross certain lines. Be it at work, or in our family lives we seem to be controlled by some type of force which ensures that we do things according to a certain order. Are we free or do we understand the meaning of freedom?

A nation that fights for independence is simply fighting for a declaration of independence and a reflection of laws that change the way things appear. Appearance is not the change in heart neither is it the change in mindset. The idea of freedom is one that has been floated in time and our very education tells us that freedom is doing what we have a right to do without being impendent by laws which violate those rights. So we grow up believing that rights are the definition of freedom. A young teenager believes that freedom is when their parents allow them to do as they please because in their belief, being allowed to do what they please is what is the definition of freedom. The prisoner believes that freedom is being let out of the prison bars, and hence have the right to do as other people live. However none of this is freedom, it is but a make-up of freedom that holds no ounce of the essence of freedom.

One who is free is not determined by what they are able to pursue but rather by the realization of their identity of truth. There is no greater freedom that exceeds truth, whatever laws we may pass if they are not truth they are but just a passing of time. True freedom is not determined by laws neither is it defined by values. True freedom stands the test of time and is not subject to right or wrong, it is the essence of life and the breath of existence. What we perceive as freedom in our time is just an expression of activity but not the truth of it. We live in a world where freedom is determined by signed papers and the allowance to act in any way we define as a right but this is not freedom, as in most cases it is not truth. What then is truth?

Truth is life, it is the examined stance that has no fault, the energy that pursues us to success. Values we may believe in have no freedom until they are truths, and our reservations have no ounce of freedom until their very substance is truth. Truth never changes with time for time must serve truth. Look in the mirror and determine if the very life that you exist is the truth, or you are just fleeting with time in the usual deception of what freedom is. If patience, love, understating is not truth then it has no freedom. Being able to vote, or stay out for long is not freedom, but realizing what is truth is the definition of freedom. Are you truly free?

Look Beyond the Mirror

October 31, 2013 Leave a comment

Life tends to be a reflection of what we see or what we perceive. Depending on different aspects discussed in this article, then one can see the world or just one part of it. Our achievements then tend to be related to what we do with what we see in the mirror of life.

Any mirror that is before us has its properties and different aspects, however its view is limited to its position, cleanliness, shape, substance, size and the person looking into it. When one stands before the mirror your view of the world is through your eyes but also through what the mirror is able to show. A simple analogue is the review mirrors in a car, they will only show you as much as they can, depending on the same things noted (position, cleanliness, shape, substance, size, viewer) but does not mean they are showing you everything. So your decision in your driving might be correct or wrong, as they may be a blind side you don’t see, or the angle being used makes you think that the cars behind you are either slow or fast, or the mirrors can be so dirty you cannot make out how far any car is or even if it is there depending on the positioning of the mirror. This is the same in life.

In one way we see the world through people’s experiences or their presence. There is nothing wrong in that but then what we forget that these people are also just mirrors for which their reflection of the world is limited to their position in society, cleanliness of heart, shape in dealing with life, substance of things achieved, size of their ambitions and values. As much as their opinions are important, remember, beyond the mirror is a world full of many possibilities and even greater mirrors which can see even more.

In another way we tend to see the world through education, learning and programming. We are taught mathematics, history, languages, economics, sciences and arts of which these are mirrors which we then use to see the world. However we also must not forget that each of these subjects is but a limited mirror limited by the level of knowledge in discovery. In some cases the science is wrong, the history is biased, the languages are limited, the economics is not empowering, the mathematics is limiting and the arts is misleading. Education is good but it also is just a limited mirror. You must look beyond the mirror; some have gone beyond education to achieve great things.

Another mirror which we use is the mirror of headlines. Daily there is one headline or another which force us to rethink what we see in life. We hear rumors of wars and see evidence of it but this is not the full world this is but a part of it. When we are exposed to one set of news we tend to forget that they are other possible news that can exist or which can be made to exist. History makers are not people that live by headlines they are people that make the headlines. If you look through the headline mirror then be sure to be the one who is making the headlines.

The last mirror in this article but surely not the last mirror in existence is the emotions that we feel. Your emotions can be deceiving; the heart can be the greatest deceit of all, who knows what is in the heart? The thing is, sometimes your heart tells you to be angry in situations where you should not be, or to react in a situation where you should simply be responding. Some have quit their jobs, killed their spouses, robbed people, quit their dreams, married the wrong people, laughed when they should have kept quiet, spoke when they should have shouted, loved when they should have hated and the list goes on. Look beyond your emotions and you will achieve greater things.

Learn to look beyond the mirrors around you, you might just have more time than you thought you had or less time. Act quickly but there is an even greater mirror in life which is a secret to many. Which mirror is that you ask?
1Co 13:12 For now we see in a mirror dimly, but then face to face. Now I know in part, but then I shall fully know even as I also am fully known.

The Battle with Self

October 22, 2013 1 comment

The Battle of Self
The man or woman in the mirror is normally a stubborn person. The resolve to stay true to one’s self preservation is a driver that can prove to be the standing boulder between achievement and failure. The battle with self is a battle many will fight but few will win.

In the midst of opportunity like Moses, self will normally look for an excuse not to attempt that which has never been attempted. In some circumstance the first excuse could be who am I or on whose name shall I go. Such an excuse is only but self refusing to be buried in new things not wanting to stretch one’s self to levels not yet attempted. Opportunity knocks on the doors of every continent but only those who are willing to go beyond the self preservation battle will open the door. It should not be a question of who am I but rather it should be a function of what needs to be done. Self is only but an existence to enable the achievement of all things concerned. In achievement is not only the preservation of self but the discovery of the deeper things of life.

As Moses stood arguing with God within his excuses, self simply attacked his very personality. Are we born with the instruments to achieve great accomplishments in life? The very truth that that you breathe means you are the possible conduit of God’s power which makes you able to achieve anything and everything that is set before you. Your context of function should not be based on what your experiences have been with yourself but rather should be based on your standing in the presence of God. Opportunity will knock on your door but do not let the battle with self stand in your way.

In the midst of all possibilities the battle with self should become a historical event. A decision in the past in which self preservation became a non-event but rather glory became a pivotal event. We are meant for glory after all being fearfully and wonderfully made means we are creation for the glory of God. Life still wonders on our make on how we were made, it then only is fitting that the conclusion of the battle of self should be defeat to self and victory to the glory of God.
Be blessed.

Of this World Not out a Mad Mad Writes

June 14, 2013 Leave a comment

Not of this world but Mad Man
The Strategist observes that of this world and not of this world is a quagmire which seems to be bordered by a thin line of thread yet the difference in where one belongs to is as vast as parallel universes are defined, perhaps a mad man could answer this question. Worlds are defined by the inhabitants, what they do and what they accept is the construct of the world. Its mechanisms of progress or the lack of it is purely a comic sense of insane choices. When one then looks at the current world which has been defined over many stumbling and purposes driven journeys one then is only left but to chuckle, a mad man must be at work.

Who else constructs time and fails to keep it but a mad man? How can one construct a beautiful house designed to perfection and adorned in the latest tapestry of decorations but in the completion of the house one decides to sleep outside the house? This is the same with a man who understand time but fails to keep it. In time you will see standards of thoughts in which selling fish is normal but without questioning the art of selling fish, people are selfish. A selfish person is akin to a fisherman who goes and catches a lot of fish then prepares the fish for the market, when he arrives at the market he then sells the fish to himself. This is true of a continent that mines all its minerals and then at the end sells itself the same minerals at triple the price which have been processed. It’s just the tale of a rich man sitting on gold begging for money. A mad man must be at work in this world.

Of this world is the concept of love, a mystical concept which is unexplained but given in choice and blamed for stupidity. A tale is told of a woman who leaves all her senses and indulges in criminal activity for the person she claims to love yet the same person has never sacrificed a seat for her or spoiled her with a gracious chewing gum. Yet in all this she has never seen love but blames love, yet not of this world the strategist understands that love is a choice and there is nothing mysterious about it. If a dog can bite its own tail so does a world that cries foul when kids shoot kids yet they are the ones that sell guns to kids. Who is the mad man who makes laws to allow everyone to carry guns yet refuses everyone to shoot the same guns? Elect the strategist your president but don’t cry madness when your new president forgets your name and where you live even after he did visit you during the campaign.

Of this world is a mad man who buys a newspaper then complains that the same paper is very negative. Is this not the same person who knows they have an allergy but still indulges in the behavior that causes the same allergy or is it not the same doctor who preaches about the dangers of sleeping around but is himself a prostitute? The strategist has seen the people cry for food whilst on the television near them is a nation whose games including throwing food at each other. The strategist has seen the world stop to watch a football game but never stop to care for a person involved in an accident. The strategist has seen people denying the existence of God but believing that evil exists. It’s a strange world I tell you but of this world and not of this world, only a light will shine.
Don’t be worried I have said all I can say but of this world is a mad man but not of this world is a standard. Of this world is insanity out of this world is perfect organization. Of this world is chaos not of this world is peace. The violent take it by force but the mad man is violent to himself. Don’t be scared, it is time.

Standards

April 27, 2013 Leave a comment

Love is a standard, so is faith, hope, success, anger, hate and anything else one can think of. When a standard is not maintained then that thing ceases to achieve what it is supposed to be. The essence or make up of that thing mutates into something else. Companies fail, love fails, friendships ceases when the standard of it is no longer has meaning. In order to achieve the existence of anything in life one must understand the standard required in order to get to the level of whatever it is one wants to achieve. Standards cannot be substituted and neither can be compromised. Perfection on its own is a standard. It is an existence in which in the absence of the standard of perfection then perfection will cease to exist.

Most people will always wonder why they fail in life, yet the answer is simply because they fail to realize what standard is required for them to succeed in what they want. If for example one starts a business, there is standard that needs to be maintained in order to keep the business running, there is a standard required to expand the business, there is standard required to grow internationally beyond the borders. There is a standard required to keep ones job, relationships, life and everything else. Most people will never realize that standards are what keeps everything at the levels they are supposed to be.

Think of standard as the mechanism that keeps the existence in order; it is the organization that keeps things moving. Standards are like the nuts that keep the wheel fastened to the car, the ligament attachments; the path between destinies; in the absence of the standards everything falls apart. Each standard defines how things will work in order to succeed or exist. When a standard is compromised it simply means another standard has come into place which has a specific outcome.

Whatever exists or whatever is in front of you can be explained by the standard that it has kept. When you fail to keep to a standard you end up paying for it somewhere in the future or creating a consequence which is different from what was intended. Different standards can never get along, they can tolerate each other but never get along. That’s just the way it is. Very few people know standards in terms of how they can get them to where they are supposed to be. In real essence less than one percent of the world have seen the power of standards. The rest of the people are just living by default .
