give: a little space, a little time, a little freedom

Usually, there are posts about coming together and connecting with others but giving space to others can be very healing for both parties. If you have gotten into a heated argument, then you know the effects of saying terrible things in the moment and regretting it later on. This situation can usually be avoided if space enters into the picture. Time may need to be used for self for awhile, giving the two parties some air to breathe, some hours to heal and some moments to be free from the other.

Truth

learn & love: truth vs. perception of truth

There is truth and there is perception of truth. The measurement of truth is depended on if it is capable of defense. In other words, truth cannot be refuted; it simply is what it is. For example, nature cannot be denied–the day and night, the sun and moon, water, air, land, energy, etc. Whereas, HIStory can be refuted because it’s based on perception of truth. For a more extreme example, God is a perception of truth according to many interpretations also known as religions. However, there is an underlying truth in all religious text and that is love. Love is truth and cannot be refuted. Therefore, if God is love, then God is truth but only in this context. Of course, one could argue that this whole post is another perception of truth. The more we know, the more we don’t know.

be inspired: god is love & devil is tough love

unconditional

that is you

no matter how you are presented

you are truth

personified

demonized

hypnotized

glorified

magnified

light in the eye

light in the day

light is love

love is

you

you are me

i am you

we are inclusive

wrapped tightly

in a spiral

that delivers our material

our persona

our character

our individuality

our identity

what i feel

you love

even if it speaks

in 7 deadly tones

you hear 7 heavenly

notes

power is the

unconditional

love

that is

you

listen & love: we all try


We All Try
by Frank Ocean
Nostalgia, Ultra

Lyrics

i believe jehovah jireh
i believe there’s heaven
i believe in war
i believe a woman’s temple
gives her the right to choose
but baby don’t abort
i believe that marriage isn’t
between a man & woman
but between love and love
and i believe you when you say that
you’ve lost all faith
but you must believe in something
something something
you gotta believe in something
something something

i still believe in man
a wise one asked me why
cause i just don’t believe we’re wicked
i know that we sin but i do believe we try
we all try
the girls try
the boys try
women try
men try
you and i
try try we all try

i don’t believe in time travel
i don’t believe our nation’s flag is on the moon
i don’t believe our lives are simple
and i don’t believe they’re short
this is interlude
i don’t believe my hands are cleanly
can’t believe that you would
let me touch your heart
she didn’t believe me when i said that
i lost my faith
said you must believe in something
something something
you gottta believe in something
something something

i still believe in man
a wise one asked me why
cause i just don’t believe we’re wicked
i know that we sin but i do believe we try
we all try
the girls try
the boys try
women try
men try
you and i
try try we all try

Crying_by_zero_rider

be active: cry in front of someone

At times, I’ve wished for something terrible to happen to me so I can be totally vulnerable in front of someone quickly and naturally without judgment because it seems in this society, when truth becomes visible; a tangible feeling becomes physical; the unexpected honesty becomes accepted. Of course, I do not really wish for the horrible action to happen to me or to anyone else. I do, though, wish that we would be more free with our emotions.

Vulnerability requires us to take a hard time and express it in front of another person, allowing ourselves to open up in the moment.  It can be difficult and painful but it can also be very beneficial and healing. If you are going through a rough patch, show your hard time to a close friend, allow that person to see your hurt. Believe me, liberation will be your middle name once you do this.
