What Should LOVE feel like!?

Let’s start with something easy………for one, it should feel good.

Not just according to the flesh or physically, but spiritually, mentally, emotionally, orally, metaphorically, figuratively and literally.

Love should feel like an abundance of peace and comfort.

Please don’t mistaken the word, “LOVE” for the word, “LUST”. 2 different things, 2 different entities and 2 different words that derive from 2 different sources.

Many people confuse these 2 terms as the same and they’re not. So, I just wanted to address that before I go any further.

In theory, “LOVE” should be & feel unconditional. It should feel light and natural like the air we breathe. The majority of the stress is positive stress. “LOVE” should feel like understanding and knowing that under any circumstances that love purposely will not harm you. The approach is patient and kind. Envious and keeping track of wrongs and holding grudges is not how love should feel.

Love should feel good. Okay, then what is good?

According to Dictionary.com
1. morally excellent; virtuous; righteous
2. satisfactory in quality, quantity, or degree
3. of high quality; excellent.

You know how “LOVE” should feel. So, does it actually feel to you on a daily basis? Does how it should feel match up to how it actually is?

I Don’t Believe In X-MAS, I Believe In Christmas!

YES!!!!!!!! There is a difference! A huge difference.

I would be honored to define it for you.

X-MAS is a period of time created by retailers to boost sales around the Christmas Holidays. It is also a word to involve non-believers  who don’t believe in Christmas during this spiritual holiday, to get their consumerism as well. It’s all about money 

CHRISTMAS is a birthday celebration and Holiday for believers in Jesus Christ. 

Businesses have contributed in turning the meaning of Christmas all about money, selling products, moving units to get that top dollar and they have done a great job fooling so many people, even believers in this infiltrated  and substitution term, “X-Mas.”

The word Christmas derived from somewhere, it just wasn’t made up. There is a story behind it. Christmas is way bigger than some big sale at Macy’s, Toys R’Us and Walmart. This is about the birth of Jesus Christ. The greatest gift ever given to mankind. Henceforth, “giving”, not of money and sells and discounts, but salvation and life. It is also about being thankful for love, family, health, strength and all of the little things that people often take for granted.

Wikipedia defines X-Mas as a common abbreviation of Christmas. Then it goes into breaking down the origins and languages from which it came from. Then it goes on to say, verbatim:

“There is a common misconception that the word Xmas stems from a secular attempt to remove the religious tradition from Christmas[3] by taking the “Christ” out of “Christmas”.”

I find this to be quite funny. Now why would they feel the need to put that down. People this is not a misconception. We as believers, should have the decency to honor God and His son, Jesus Christ to say, write and type the true name of this grand Holiday and Birthday Celebration.

Wikipedia’s statement is another way to cover up and justify themselves in telling people this garbage. They quoted this because they know that “X-Mas” is an attempt to remove the spiritual purpose and meaning from Christmas, it had to be addressed. And I’m willing to bet that an atheist or non-believer wrote that statement.

“X-Mas” should definitely be included in High School and College marketing and business books, because that is all it is, a marketing business and promotional stunt and tool.

I put it on the level of X-Men. As much as I like the comics and the animation series, this is what the meaning of Christmas has been diminished to. As far as honor. Just like X-Men is fiction and it doesn’t exist, so is X-Mas. That crap was clean made up. The same goes for Santa Clause and the Easter Bunny. Come on believers, we are better than that.

Everything doesn’t have to be entertainment. There is a time to play and a time not to. Kids will be happier if you just tell them the truth. Like I said, Christmas is way bigger and better and stronger than this so-called term, “X-Mas”

I hear people on Facebook ask often, “Why did they take Prayer out of school?” You know what, prayer wasn’t taken out of school. Some person who had the power, money, position and big time degree said to take it out and everyone followed pursuit. Just because someone says it, it doesn’t mean you have to put action behind it. When I was in school I still prayed. I prayed in my head, much like how the teacher asks you to read in your head not out loud. WE CAN STILL PRAY IN SCHOOL!!!!!

Now it has transcended onto Christmas. Shall I demonstrate, “Why did they take Christ out of Christmas?” You know what, Christ wasn’t taken out of Christmas. Some non-believer who had the power, money, position and big time degree said to take it out and call it “X-Mas” to include non-believers and everyone including believers followed pursuit. They trained everybody and everyone caught on to the concept. It was accepted!

I don’t believe in X-Mas, I believe in Christmas.

People have the right to know the truth. Don’t be fooled by a political term, a marketing term, a retailers term, a business term. That is all “X-Mas” is. Christmas should be honored better than that. Call me by my real name not a fake name. Call it what it is, anything else is disrespectful.

So the word, “Christmas” is long. I just kind of feel since people have the time to write out curse words, derogatory names and any other word we use out of the dictionary, why can’t we do that for “Christmas”, especially since that word, the Holiday does have so much more meaning than most words people use on a regular! Something to think about.

I love Christmas and I understand the meaning of it and the History of it. I’m very passionate about this Holiday and I can see how the spirit of Christmas has just changed over the years and I know that there are many of you who see it or have seen it too. Seeds can be planted in many ways even within a name and how people view these Holidays. Remember what Christmas is about. It is not in the Mall, stores and shops. It is in our hearts, spirit and our lives.

I don’t believe in X-Mas. I don’t believe in it not one bit. I believe in Christmas! I hope each of you have a beautiful, Blessed & safe Christmas! Happy Holidays to you, you and you! #SMILE!

“I Sing Because I’m Happy”

20121203-222813.jpg

I sing because in this world, I’m not FREE, the real Free.

So I sing so that in my spiritual form I can be Free.

God makes my world beautiful and if it wasn’t for Him, things would be in worse conditions.

I know the beginning was not what you expected for those who know the song, but I think things should be clarified.

This is not preaching nor is it chuuurch! If you are looking for that then bible study is coming up on Wednesday and church is this Sunday. You may not want to miss the morning service.

Let me tell you something about happiness…………. It feels so good when I doo-doo in the toilet. You know why?

Because the body rids itself of all the toxic wastes & bacteria that doesn’t belong while allowing you body to be relieved of a heavy burden.

The experience is rejuvenating. You know, you’ve experienced it. It is that moment when you close your eyes and have that relief smile on your face and your head pointed up in the sky like you are receiving a Blessing from above.

That my friend isn’t just by design. It is spiritual. You experience such freedom in your mind, body and soul.

It is the same when you drink water after a long hot day outside or after an intense workout. The way that water dances with your tongue, marinates with you saliva and runs down your throat, it’s manifestation. You are being delivered from dehydration. It is freedom, a freedom that makes you happy.

So happy that in you spirit you want to sing. You know of this, you do.

Take the shower for example, when that hot or super warm heat hits every ounce of your body as it marinates with the suds from the soap. It washes away and cleanses the dirt off and away. And like a kid, you play with the water, it’s flow, it’s delivery.

And the feeling is just so right that you begin to sing in the shower. It is a relaxation that you have to sing about. Sometimes you’re putting on a stellar concert, other times you’re practicing in the rehearsal hall, but no matter what you are singing because you are happy. You are singing because in all three of those moments you are free.

In this world, we are not free and I’m not talking about prison. There are other forces outside of prison that limit our freedom. But God, provides such freedom and Blessings that when all seems to fail in this world, He doesn’t. It’s a GREAT feeling.

We are reminded when we doo-doo, when we drink water & when we take showers.

Take note when you do these things and sing your heart out, sing because you are HAPPY!

Tryna Figure it Out

I think its fair to say that we are all trying to figure this thing out.

The spiritual battles, the personal battles, the serious issues, the daily mistakes we make, the different relationships that we have………………………… on all levels.

All of it can just be confusing sometimes. I can completely understand where Marvin Gaye was coming from when he sung, “What’s Goin’ On”

I find myself asking the same thing and after awhile, my cerebrum just taps out. Its too much. I have other things in my life I have to worry about.

I think the main thing is, is just trusting God. Somethings in life are not meant to be answered. Some things in life are beyond our comprehension.

I know people have their different beliefs, but I am a believer in Jesus Christ, a believer in God. A believer in the trinity, God the Father, God the Son and God the Holyghost.

Like everybody else, I have problems and flaws and mishaps, but I continue to strive to get better. I continue to try and cope with the daily minutia’s that transpire in my life.

Life has its ups and downs, but I think it helps to do my best in making good decisions, to take things easy, to choose my battles, to be slow to wrath, to practice positivity and most importantly to just pray about it.

Anybody can sit there and be mad at the world all day, but its just too stressful and uptight. I would hate to be like that all the time, day in and day out.

It is a fight, but its a fight going in the right direction, not the wrong direction.

Life should be enjoyed and be full of happiness. I know that statement sounds a little political, but theoretically, don’t you think it should be that way!!?? If not, that’s a new one.

There are many people out here with outstanding distinguished college degrees with fancy and noble titles and you know what, they don’t even have this thing totally figured out. They’ll make an effort to convince you, but titles and degrees do not grant you with how to figure life out.

I don’t care what anybody says.

People create books and have their credentials sharing their professional opinions, but they don’t have it. But, sometimes because you have that percentage of people who are making bread off their profession, it appears like they know what they’re talking about. They have the money, power and media to push it.

We’re all tryna figure this thing out. Someone may read this blog and disagree and strongly believe that they have this thing figured out. It is to each’s own. But no one life is the same to the next guy over. Each person has there walk and an intersectionality, in which they come from.

Don’t think too much into it. I don’t want anybody getting a stage fright freeze, but just be easy, positive and prayerful.

I know that God is with me at all times and that He does have this thing figured out. He will lead the way and if you believe, He will lead you as well. Everything else you can throw out the window.
