7 Days 7+ Quotes – Integrity – A Value We Impose On Ourselves – It Says Everything About Who We Are – 9 Tips to Help You Strengthen Your Integrity

“Lying lips [are] abomination to the LORD: but they that deal truly [are] his delight.” – Proverbs 12:22

Integrity is one of my most valuable virtues.

Now that I am well on my spiritual journey, maintaining Integrity has become of greater importance in every choice that I make or action I take.

The reason I give Integrity such importance has to do partly with my age and experience.  And, having had many people in my life who were not “of their word”.  …Friends, Family, and Colleagues.

The choices and challenges that I face today are generally not new ones. As they say, ‘This is not my first rodeo’. It seems that most of the choices I face today are ones in which I am already well-experienced. On most challenges to my Integrity, I have made incorrect choices in the past, and am well aware of the consequences of not being true. So, I ensure that I am, no matter what the truth may bear.

It may not be easy for others to make the correct choices, and to be regarded as men or women of their my word.  …Not I!

Aging has also caused me to focus more on a legacy. My legacy is important to me. The reason it is of such importance is that when God comes for me, I want to be able to leave a message, purpose, and inspiration behind for others.

I am very serious about leaving a legacy. My tombstone is already engraved with: ‘His mission on Earth is complete’.

I simply do not see my life today as exclusively dedicated to myself. I do for others in daily deeds, but also for my best virtues to be reflected upon and be useful to others.

My poetry, stories, social media content, and blog posts reflect the legacy that I am creating. I practice what I preach, believe the things I write, eat the foods I recommend, and follow the health regimens that I write about.

SHARE – Feel Good On A Stevie Wonder Vibe! – Dat’s Whazup! – Maybe U Can I See Like Stevie Wonder – I Can, Every Now & Then

“We all have ability. The difference is how we use it.” – Stevie Wonder

This is a Feel-Good post.  I hope that you want to feel better today.  I do.  We need it.  I will try my best with this post. 

The vibration in the atmosphere has been tense.  I believe that the Lord wants us to have more alone time to reflect and reconcile our differences with The World, to perhaps lead us to reconciliation, inner peace, and Love.  I have had to go inward and introspective on a daily to keep my vibe up high.

Today, my vibe is very elevated!  I am looking forward to the new life that begins each day.  I see sleep as dying each night and waking reborn.

But this moment, the new Season just before us, post-Lobster, post-COVID19, post-insurrection, post-everything 2020 is more eagerly anticipated by everyone.  The unknowns and adventure of it all can be absolutely exhilarating, if you are imaginatively creative, and are vibrating higher than most.  I am that way today.  Are you?

I am looking forward to a more discerned and refined me, blossoming in this new Springtime.  For I know that Spring always comes.  Always, period point-blank. 

We are on its horizon.  I listened to Stevie Wonder’s music and watched his videos today, and I feel mighty inspired.  I hope you enjoy it.  Kevy

I am singing about Tomorrow.  Let’s start singing of Love from our hearts.

SHARE PLEASE! – Stevie Wonder’s Call To Action On TRUTH DECAY – To Biden, Harris & US – It’s Making Him Sick – Me Too! – January 18, 2021

This is a very short post that I just had to get out immediately. This is a calling.

I am moved by Stevie Wonder’s CALL TO ACTION yesterday, in honor of Dr. Martin Luther King, on January 18, 2021.

If you believe in God, Humanity, and Healing, you should be moved too.

We just cannot go on as we have. Whether you can spit scriptures or not, regardless of the “book” you read, the message is one word:

Love

Tomorrow, or late today, I will post a tribute to Stevie Wonder. He is of God if a man ever was. In this post, I will celebrate his incredible talent, brilliance, and elevated vibration. Stevie is a prophet to me. Against, popularity, profit, or fame, I can see as he sees, and express that which I witness, when most see nothing there.

Poetrimony – Celebrating Guest Blogger/Poet & Front-Line Worker Colorado Poet For Her Talents, Heart & Spirit – Show Love 2 Colorado Poet!

I am excited to feature COLORADO POET in this post, once again.

I regularly invite other bloggers to share their perspectives on any topic.  I invite you, right now.  We do not have to all agree but must be respectful of each other.

Colorado Poet answered, twice.  Kudos to you. 

I believe that we must regularly engage with each other, feature each other, as Colorado Poet and I do, if we are serious about healing as a civilization.

I am privileged to have a blogger like Colorado Poet who is sincerely open to sharing her talent in the interest of creating better relations, understanding each other, and for plain friendship.


Her brand appeals to me.  …A lot!  I searched her site and easily selected several poems that resonate with me.

I love how the brevity of her poems efficiently utilizes the writing landscape.  This is clearly not one of my strengths, as evidence by my lengthy posts that sometimes seem like novels.

She uses imagery quite effectively with her poems, identifying the picture’s location.  I can tell that she puts great effort into selecting the perfect picture.  So, with each poem, I included her chosen image for that poem.  I also included links to her site all over the place.  Check Colorado Poet out.

This Blues Gives Hope – The Canton Spirituals & Other Gospel Blues Music

Who would have thought that one of my favorite gospel groups is the Canton Spirituals?  …Sam Cooke and the Soul Stirrers too. 

I guess I’m mixed-up that way, being raised Catholic, not knowing the bible like my ABCs, I’m not religious.  But I’m spiritual, and I love the Canton Spirituals.  Let me try to explain.

I don’t know which reason prevails in my attraction to the good gospel music of the Canton Spirituals, and others.

I know that since its Southern Gospel it appeals to me, off the back because  I am from South Louisiana.  It also appeals to me because the group presents gospel music in a bluesy kind of way.  Sometimes, I get the blues like every else does.  The songs tell stories of trials on Life’s Road and achieving victory through faith. The Blues, in this case, gives me Hope.

God’s Purpose For UR Life Is Imprinted On UR Heart – Deepak’s Spiritual Law of Dharma Shows U How To Discover UR True Self – UR True Purpose

In today’s turbulent times it would be prudent to go within to examine yourself.  There is something very beautifully unique about each of us that we must discover and share with the world.

Now is the time to calibrate our spirits, fine-tune our vibrations.  This is something over which we have complete control, unlike our uncertain future, given today’s racial protests and the coronavirus pandemic.

Tuning the spirit is the most that we can do to prepare ourselves for what may come, which is an unknown.  Though what awaits us is a mystery, we would be better prepared to rest on a strong identity of self and a fortified spiritual foundation than not.

I am basking in the joy of having elevated my spirit years ago.  During today’s Racial Revolution and COVID19 pandemic, I have not been fearful.  In fact, my creativity and energy have been elevated, as well.  For me, it is an exciting time.  In contrast, I see a correlation between those not in touch with their inner spirit and being fearful, worried, and physically unhealthy.

This post is based on the principles in the book The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success, by Deepak Chopra.  Today we focus on the Spiritual Law of Dharma.  Dharma is your purpose in life.  This law requires that we find life’s purpose for the spiritual embryo within ourselves and pursue it with vigor.

When I first reintroduced the Seven Spiritual Laws series, I adapted it for the crisis of the day, which was only the coronavirus pandemic.  I only covered one of the spiritual laws so far, The Law of Detachment.  I took the liberty of rearranging the order of Deepak Chopra’s laws because they work in order, individually and in mixed order when you practice them regularly.

“Love Is Starving For Itself” – It Needs Love Today! – Send URs Right Away – Hate’s Going ‘Round – So Don’t Delay

I believe that God inspired my thought to post about Love today.  I am not being as self-important as this may sound. 

Most people do believe that God created the universe.  We may differ on exactly who God is, or if the name is really God, but most of us agree that man did not create the universe.  That is outstanding that most of us can surrender our egos to a higher power.

Most believe that some entity, character, energy, spirit, or vibration created the universe, and therefore created us.

So, if “God” created us, and if we believe in “God”, then we must believe that “God” guides us, inspires us, sends us messages and visions.

God sent me a vision to create this post.  It occurred, as it usually does when I was jogging the other day.  I listened to Stevie Wonder’s album Songs In The Key Of Life.  I was mesmerized by the song Love’s In Need of Love Today.  I was in awe over all of the songs on this album, but especially this song.


 “Kindness in words creates confidence. Kindness in thinking creates profoundness. Kindness in giving creates love.” – Lao Tzu


The lyrics and artistry deliver a compelling-needed message, in a most bone-chilling way.  I am sure that God gives Stevie Wonder such visions too.  Stevie said himself, on one of the video performances below the “Love is starving for itself”.  I liked it so much, I used in the title.

Love is starving for attention.  Fear, panic, and uncertainty is causing hate to go ‘round, breaking many hearts.  And, we must stop this, before it’s gone too far!    Continue reading ““Love Is Starving For Itself” – It Needs Love Today! – Send URs Right Away – Hate’s Going ‘Round – So Don’t Delay”

The Spirit of Kwanzaa, Diwali, Hanukkah & Christmas Should Be Lived Everyday – Not Just Celebrated Once A Year – Come On Now!

I don’t celebrate Christmas in a very commercial way.  Nonetheless, this past Christmas was one of my most special Christmases.  I gave no material gifts.  I could not afford to.  But instead, I received and shared the love of my heart with others close to me, quite randomly.

This past Christmas made me feel proud also!

It made me feel that my mother, in heaven, was smiling down on me.  One of my dearest friends, who I supported in the past, and who supported me, surprised me with money when I really needed it to catch up on bills. 

He reminded me of times that I was there for him when he needed me.  I was but without expectation.  That is why it felt so special.  This friend’s family is my family.  They are lovingly spiritual.  I am there for them if they ever need me.  They poured their spirit, all the way from Costa Rica, into my Christmas, complete with pictures that exuded God’s spirit.

Then a highly intelligent and honorable friend from India sent me a gift unexpectedly.  I haven’t seen him in about 20 years when we worked together on IT projects. 

He reminded me of back then, when I supported him, believed in him.  Now he is a success as a businessman, family man, in the spirit Knowledge, Happiness, and Krishna.    He told me that he considers me as his brother.  I feel the same way and am available to help him with his visions in whatever way I can. 

My neighbor and I collaborate on video projects.  We have conversations about videos, music, creativity, and life in general.  He is a mentor to ‘his homies’, who are younger than him.  I am like a mentor to him, because I am as many years older than he is, as he is older than his ‘homies’. 

He and I sprang gifts on each other this Christmas.  Not so much wrapped with bows.  Rather impromptu gifts of appreciation, backed with conversations filled with true authenticity and gratitude. 

The highlight of my Christmas was being spontaneously invited to dinner by someone in the media that I admire.  I help him as much as I can because I feel really good vibes from him.  …And it helps that he is really smart, with a humble peaceful spirit.

He invited to dinner with his family, mask-free.  I am sure, because of his spiritual upbringing, that he realized that he shared the loving spirit of his family with me, in addition to the wonderful meal that each member of the family prepared.  I felt love in his home, beyond what I have felt in support from him on media projects.

I offered my skills, talents, and time to him and his family sincerely.  And I mean it.  If there is a way that I can assist in the future, I’m on it!

Not one of these things was planned, and I feel like in them I’ve experienced a more loving and touching Christmas this go-round than I have when it had been meticulously orchestrated.  This is what Christmas, Diwali (Deepavali), Hanukkah, and Kwanzaa should be all about.      Continue reading “The Spirit of Kwanzaa, Diwali, Hanukkah & Christmas Should Be Lived Everyday – Not Just Celebrated Once A Year – Come On Now!”

SHARE – I Need That SA BEAT! – AFROBEATS – I Need To Clear My Mind & Move My Feet – I Need That BEAT!

Today I was feeling like I needed that Afrobeat

Afrobeats make me move my feet, where I can’t sit in my seat.

There is so much on my mind right now.  There so much on everybody’s mind. 

You can only imagine how much we must be filled with thoughts, having to research all the things we hear, constantly tuning into media and social media. 

The Truth can be shocking and a bit discouraging at times. 

This may be one reason why so many don’t dig deep to find facts.  Relying solely on media news and social media is the easy way out. 

The events and uncertainties in life are overwhelming right now. 

Sometimes I need Afrobeats TO ESCAPE IT ALL! 

Today is one of those times.  Kevy Continue reading “SHARE – I Need That SA BEAT! – AFROBEATS – I Need To Clear My Mind & Move My Feet – I Need That BEAT!”

SHARE – 15 Reasons Why No COVID19 Vaccine For This Black Man! – Vaccines Are For Those Who Regularly Take Vaccines & Prescription Drugs Just Because They’re Told To

It has taken me over one month to prepare this post on the COVID19 vaccine. It is extensive and required a great deal of research. Many may not read it. That’s okay. I am not trying to reach puppets or androids. I am trying to reach those who take personal ownership of their own well-being, and who don’t follow everything that they are told to do.

This post is not intended to change anyone’s mind or to convert them. It simply provides facts, additional information, and of course, my opinion, on which you should solidify your decision if they are into that. Kevy


We’ve gotten so touchy and evangelistic about everything these days, racial issues, healthcare, taxes, global warming, and now it’s the COVID19 vaccine.

I appreciate that everyone has a right to have their own opinion about the vaccine. Whether they are taking it or not doesn’t bother me. But some people just get out right upset with you, if like myself, have decided that you’re just not taking it.

I haven’t taken the flu, pneumonia, measles, shingles, or none of those vaccines. The last vaccines I remember taking were when I was anywhere from 5 to 8 years old, and I’m standing strong. Those who take them regularly as adults often have poorer health than I do.

The Center For Disease Control (CDC) recommends 13 different vaccines for adults. I have taken none of these as an adult.

Recommended Vaccines by Age – Read More

I will never say never. I never say never about anything in life, so I can’t never say I take the vaccine. But it’s not anything that I am considering anytime soon. I’ve done my research and I’ve provided a list of reasons why I’m not rushing to take the COVID19 vaccine. Maybe you should consider these things as well, especially if you fit into my demographic.

Deciding not to take the vaccine wasn’t a difficult decision. I arrived at this decision rather easily, in spite of being exposed to COVID19, testing positive, then subsequently testing negative 3 times.

I have several reasons and I’m sure that further research will probably give more reasons why taking the COVID19 vaccine is not right for me, at this time.

I respect those who choose to take the vaccine as soon as it becomes available to them. That is their choice and right, such as mine. I am not trying to convince anyone of anything with regard to the vaccine, except for one thing.

This one thing I encourage everyone to do on every decision, research. Do not make your decisions purely based on fear, media, hearsay, or even religion. After doing your due diligence, then follow your heart, the part of us all where God’s spirit resides. My heart tells me not now for the COVID19 vaccine.

SHARE – This Will Make U Feel Good – Even In Quarantine! – We Need That – DJ Cassidy’s Pass The Mic – BET Soul Train Edition

Yesterday, Black Entertainment Television’s (BET) Soul Train Pass the Mic series showed up on my YouTube feed.  It is probably because I have liked and subscribed to the Soul Train channel videos when selecting ones for prior posts.

I have especially fond memories of Soul Train.  As a teenager, I always wanted to be a Soul Train dancer.  I was once a dancer on a local television dance show in New Orleans, called Get Down.

When I watched a few Pass the Mic episodes, it brought me back to happier days.  It accentuated how much we have digressed.  I needed the feel-good part.


DJ Cassidy, the host DJ, keeps the show energetic and vibrant.  It is great to watch various R&B stars from the 1980s sing to their hit songs in their homes.  Cassidy Zooms from his home, switching from one hit R&B song and legend, to the next.  He interjects words that encourage and keeps the crowd going.  It is a wonderful experience, given that many of us are locked in.

SHARE – Common, Eryka Badu, Mr. MYOB, NEO Soul Teaser – Chill Content Ripe For This Beautiful Revolution’s Blues

I know it may seem that I’ve been slacking on posts, but I really haven’t. I’ve been working in the background.

But also, I have days where I may have a little anxiety about the times we’re in.

Photo – Brut Carniollus – Unsplash

I wish more of us would admit that we’re going through shit. Because there’s a lot of stuff that’s going on. It’s a lot to comprehend. It’s a lot of uncertainty. It’s challenging our Faith, challenging our truth, and it’s challenging who we are. We should just admit that we’re going through things.

On my good days, however, I am creating. I have upcoming posts on the That Monkey. I have another post that’s coming up on Truth Decay. And I want to do a post on vaccines because that’s not for me when it comes out.

So, I thought I’d give you a little teaser for now, while I create more content for you, in the background.

The other day, I was just stumbling through my YouTube feed and ran across Common in a studio performance. And it was incredibly beautiful! It shows me that we share a common vibe. I’ve always liked Common. He shows me that what he’s saying is what I’ve been saying in most of my posts. …About this revolution.

Listen to it, especially the 1st, 2nd, and 4th tracks. Those are really good. I also put in a little Eryka Badu. I skipped Common’s video by mistake and discovered a quarantine performance by Eryka Badu. It’s also a performance video and it’s nice.

This is a beautiful time.  Let me, Kevy Michaels, explain to you why I feel this way.

First of all, in this very moment every living creature on the planet, in the universe, and even the stars recognize that we are in a change of season.

This is not unusual, except for us.  We don’t normally recognize seasons, in the air, our minds, and spirits, as the animals, trees, and plants do because we are distracted.  Well, now we do.

Also, every last one of us is experiencing a certain degree of uncertainty about what the new season will bring.

Here I go again. This post is a mashup.


Those who follow my blog, Seasons As Our Teacher (KevyMichaels.Blog), know that I love to do mashups of totally unrelated topics. In this post, I mashup Janet Jackson and Beats, I mean Beets.

I Enjoy Being In Solitude More Than Being With People – Maybe I Love Myself Too Much? – It May Be Just For A Season – But I Prefer To Be By Myself Right Now

If ever there was a time to enjoy Solitude, now is that time.  Let me give you a few reasons:  Truth Decay, Racism, Hate, The Lobster, Riots, COVID19, Uncertainty, etc.  This post reveals that I am spending most of my free time alone.  …And I am joyous!  God is there with me showing me how beautiful I am, and where I may have gone wrong.  …Or did I?  Was it all for my greater good?  Kevy

I was speaking to a friend the other day and I was telling her that I am not sure if I could ever be in a close relationship, live with another person or even engage with my family.  She agreed with me for much the same reasons.

I know it sounds a little strange but it’s not at all.  I’m in spirit now more than into people.  I enjoy Being alone.  I have so many rituals that I follow which keeps me at a higher vibration.  …Rituals such as grounding on a regular basis, meditation, and prayer daily.  I have a lot of health rituals such as juicing, also do mineral baths, with salt and oils.  I have a creative side where I’m writing, making videos, as well as putting content out on the blog.

It’s almost impossible for me to do these things and not leave another person or make them feel ignored.  I’ve gone through this before.  Yet I am not lonely.  I enjoy this time.  There are a lot of different reasons for this.  Continue reading “I Enjoy Being In Solitude More Than Being With People – Maybe I Love Myself Too Much? – It May Be Just For A Season – But I Prefer To Be By Myself Right Now”

Happy Diwali – India’s Biggest Festival Of Light – We Should All Celebrate The Light Of Good Over Evil – Join The Hindu’s & Other Faiths In This Joyous Festival Today! – Diwali Represents Much More Than Light! – It Is A Calling

I am fortunate to have been introduced to the Indian culture over 20 years ago.  Indians are very dominant in the IT Systems field.  This is where I spent most of my career.  They are exceptionally brilliant people.  We worked well together on many projects in some of the world’s largest corporations.  I still keep in touch with several Indian friends that I’ve worked with within the United States, and abroad.

But what attracts me most to Indian culture is greater than their intelligence.  It is their peacefulness and inner light that draws me to them.  Their vibration is immensely powerful especially to those like me who have meditated for over 20 years, and who is curious and open to all cultures and faiths.

I have attended Indian weddings, baby rituals, and have been invited to dinner in the homes of Indian families, which was all a great honor.  Every event and venue were full of love and joy and was quite colorful.  I love colors.  I see them as a reflection of God’s light in a myriad of God-created hues.  Light is energy; therefore, colors have a power that can influence our spirit.  The Indian culture knows this well, as I do.

Today Indians around the world celebrate the festival known as Diwali, the festival of lights.  It is a festival that is based on an Indian god who defeated evil.  Diwali is a celebration of good over evil.  If there were ever an appropriate time to celebrate good over evil, now is that time considering the state of world affairs, politically, economically, and socially.  We should all celebrate Diwali today and every day.

Devirusize – In This Corner, Juicing, In the Other, Smoothies – And the Champ Is?

Photo – Tuong -Dat – Unsplash
Photo – Nathan Dumlao Unsplash

I have been juicing and blending fruit and vegetables for at least 15 years now.  I do both actively, but prefer juicing.  I like to drink freshly prepared juices especially when I am fighting a minor illness or when detoxing, which is always since our environment and food supply is full of toxins.  My juicing and smoothie regiment is a critical aspect of my Devirusizing protocol.  But drinking freshly prepared juices is not equal to drinking smoothies.  One is clearly better than the other.  In this post, I will explain the differences as I see it, and have researched it.

When I worked at Whole Food Markets, I regularly asked customers, who were “strictly organic”, to consider a regiment for detoxing, daily, monthly, and quarterly.  Many who go “strictly organic” do not detox, seeming to imply that being “strictly organic” alleviates this need.  This is an illusion, in my opinion.

It is much wiser to eat organic when it matters.  Refer to the 2020 Dirty Dozen & Clean 15 Lists to determine when it matters.  On this list released each spring, the Environmental Working Group (also known as the EWG) publishes a list of fruits and vegetables that experts at the nonprofit say contain elevated levels of pesticides that may be concerning. Now known as the Dirty Dozen list to health experts and in-the-know shoppers, the list has long called conventional farming methods into question, especially as the EWG also publishes a competing list called the Clean Fifteen that highlights produce containing little to no pesticides when grown conventionally.

It is better to eat organic when it matters, and wiser to not assume that there is no need to detox periodically.  For in spite of going organic, we must accept that we are still living in a toxic world on many levels.  We should include detoxing in our health practices.  It is much wiser to complement healthy food choices, with detoxing.  Juicing (and drinking plenty of distilled water) is a great practice for detoxing.  This is a smarter way to Devirusize.

I also meet many people who sing the praises of juicing or blending (smoothies).  Most people choose one over the other.  Most that I’ve met, prefer smoothies over juices.  They state obvious pros for smoothies, and cons for juicing, but leave out many pertinent facts when making this comparison.  This is consistent with how most people practice being “healthy”, without pertinent facts.

I liken drinking fresh juices to drinking medicine, because it goes into the bloodstream within minutes, not requiring much digestion.  Think about drinking a cocktail.  After a few minutes, you feel it, because the alcohol goes into your bloodstream rather quickly. The same happens with juices, but not with smoothies. Continue reading “Devirusize – In This Corner, Juicing, In the Other, Smoothies – And the Champ Is?”

I hope that most people who read my post don’t think that I’m full of rage and anger because I’m not.

I am simply a Black man who has been through a lot of trials, and who’s well-traveled, analytical, educated, and brave enough to speak my mind. I really don’t care if my reality has a dismal aspect. It is simply what I’ve experienced in my life, good, bad, and ugly.

Though many Black people don’t speak their true minds, I do my best to encourage them to speak their minds in response to my opinions, even if they disagree with me. I won’t shun them. Sometimes they do comment on my posts. Sometimes they do so in private. Many despise me because of my views as oppose to discussing why they feel differently. That their “monkey”, not mine. I will explain “The Monkey” in a future post.

But I am only sharing with you how I managed through The Revolution that we’re currently in. …And, through the trials that you may experience.

For one, I manage through practicing daily meditation. I’ve done so for about 30 years. I have posted on meditation, as well as on prayer, which too is a long-time daily practice of mine. I do grounding as well. All these things keep me at a higher vibration in spite of expressing frustrations with the things that I’ve experienced. …The things I experienced today. …The trials in which I’ve endured.

But this post is about music. Music is a big part of my life. I see it as the background theme music of every scene and mood in my daily life. …As if my life is video content. I use music to calibrate my mood and spirit whenever it requires calibration.

How I Feel About Jared Kushner’s Statement On “The Black People” Not Desiring Success – Ya Know The Ole, You Can Lead A Horse To Water, But U Can’t Make That MOFO Drink

November 4, 2020, Post Election Night Comments

Last night’s US election results clearly show that the United States of America is Racist, embraces corruption, and has limited regard for humanity or our God-given paradise.  – Kevy

We now have the perfect ingredients laid out on the table for the preparation of a savory pot of Revolution Gumbo.

This post focuses on Jared Kushner’s comments about Black people, but it does much more.  

It points out where I believe that Blacks can up their game, Big Time!  Perhaps the realization of the election will catapult their understanding, solidarity, and swift action.  

…Perhaps Liberal White Boomers too, who desire harmonious Race Relations, but not Racial Equality or Racial Equity if it adversely affects their privilege and 401Ks.  

It also neatly ties together opinions that I have shared in prior posts that seem to be coming into fruition.  Kevy

November 3, 2020

I have the windows open here in Colorado and it’s in the 70s.  It’s an incredibly beautiful day.  We get a lot of sunshine here. 

I wanted to send this post because I know a lot of people have anxiety about the election even if they are not in America because it’s going to affect them in some way.  I don’t really have a lot of anxiety, but I do know that our future is going to be more different than our past.  …Much different.  I don’t know how but I do feel in my spirit that there is a calling.  And it’s not a calling for a prophet or messiah.  It’s a calling of several of them.  …To prepare, adapt, as well as continue to move this shift in the right direction.

Simply, Poetrimony! – My ‘Go-To’ For Encouragement – It’s My Word – (Poem + Testimony) – (Part Spirit + Part Life Seasons) – I Call It Poetrimony

It’s been a minute since I’ve posted on Seasons As Our Teacher. Well, it’s been maybe a few weeks. 

Well, like everyone else, I experience challenges, disappointments, opportunities, victories, and failures every day.  Let’s be real.  Look at the Season we’re in!  I was telling a good friend the other day that every week of my life could be a movie in itself.


Audio


I meet interesting people, encounter interesting situations, and try to always to look at them through a spiritual lens.  I find that when I look at people, places, and things through a spiritual lens, it makes it easier to discern.

 

Think about it, if you look at the person and look at their personality and the details of what they said, what you said, and what you did, it gets all complicated. But when I look at it as spirit, then you’re able to just decide if it’s a spirit that elevates or ignites you, or if it’s a spirit that doesn’t.  It’s just that simple.

 

I can apply the same thing to things such as addictions or cigarettes or eating disorders or whatever, or I can go through all of the analysis paralysis that I used to do.  Today, I simply say, Is it a good spirit or bad spirit? It makes life less complicated.

In my return, I decided to return to Poetrimony.  It is my go-to.  Often when I go to parks, I sit and write poetry or songs.

I started writing poetry actually about 20 years ago and. In my first poem; I can remember it clearly.  It was called Upside Down.  I was in a lot of pain at this time.  My poetry has been very therapeutic for me

I recommend that anyone who writes, actually I recommend that everyone writes, but I highly recommend that you date what you write.  Because I did that for about 20 years, and I can think about the things that were going on at the time that I wrote a particular poem or a particular story or narrative simply by looking at the date.

When I wrote this poem Upside Down, I was in pain, but at the same time that I was in pain, I had a lot of blessings before me that I was ignoring.  I could have turned that pain upside down. I remember the repeated stanza in that poem was:

I was looking from the upside-down.

I was putting the upside down

Only to realize that in this pain

My life would be turned around.

…The very first poem I wrote.  This was back in the year 2000 or early 2000.

Most of what I write, I just keep to myself. I have a lot of writings, songs and poems to share.

So, as I return from life’s road and seasons have been my teacher, I return with poetry, Poetrimony.  I have many, many stories to share behind these poems.  But I tend only to write about them when I feel in my spirit that I want to write and post them.  I feel that way today.

What I did below pick out some poems. They’re all random. There’s no hidden meaning or agenda. I won’t have the dates.  So, you won’t know exactly what was going on at that time. But I will give you a little glimpse into what occurred that motivated each poem. I return with Poetrimony.  Poetrimony kind of hard to say. Poetrimony is part poem, part testimony, part spirit, part life.

It embodies my journey on life’s road.  It embodies Seasons As My Teacher.

I’m back. And I hope you enjoy this post. Kevy Continue reading “Simply, Poetrimony! – My ‘Go-To’ For Encouragement – It’s My Word – (Poem + Testimony) – (Part Spirit + Part Life Seasons) – I Call It Poetrimony”

This is Very Personal – The Prayers That I Say – Some I’ve Written – Others, I’ve Rewritten

And The Ones That I’ve Written

Years ago, I was asked by a customer at Whole Foods Market what type of meditation do I do, after she shared with me that she meditates. I used to meet a lot of customers who meditate at Whole Foods. That’s because there is an obvious correlation between being healthy and being holy.

I am always challenged when I am asked how I meditate. Most people who ask this, have been professionally trained or studied a particular method on their own, and can quickly provide their type. I can’t.  I guess I could say mindfulness.  I can’t be specific namely, because my method is a hybrid form of meditation that evolved organically for me, beginning over 30 years ago.

Though I meditate, it is very rare that I would meditate, and not pray also. They go hand and hand for me. There is one exception, one which I experience when I receive acupuncture.  I practice meditation when I receive Acupuncture, but I do not pray in this meditation. In this meditation, I don’t recite an affirmation or say anything. I simply visualize until my senses go beyond the needles, moxibustion, and even an itch.  …or an urge to pee.

Otherwise, I pray even when I call it meditation.

Give It Up For Guest Blogger Wic! – I Am Digging Wic – We Are Vibing Thru Blogging Across The Planet & Never Met! – Wic Believes In Seeking God In Nature & Not Only In “A Book” – I Can Go Along With That

“God is said to have written Scripture and Nature.” – Wic

Kevy’s Comment

I am very excited to feature fellow blogger Wic, and giving him a grand showcasing.

Photo Of Wic

A few weeks ago, I found fellow bloggers with whom I connected in several ways, namely in perspective on life, love, and spirituality, just by reading their posts. I posted comments to several of their posts and asked their permission to feature them on my site.

Wic gave me permission a week ago, but I have been so busy that I had become drained and had to get away from computers, blogging, television, and all things media. Do you ever get that way as a blogger? I hope that Wic appreciates that I was not going to force introducing him to my followers. I just can’t do things normally. My friends from New Orleans says that I always have to “add cayenne” to everything I do.

As I mentioned in a post comment, I no longer hold on to old relationships that don’t vibe with who I am today just because of history or tradition. Many of those relationships were simply held together by kinship, religion, race, or class, but not by spiritual connection. None of these things have anything to do with my true spirit, my true essence, today.

Therefore, in these crucial times, I have abandoned many relationships, including family ones, that do not elevate my spirit. Instead, I find adventure in meeting new kindred spirits randomly, such as Wic’s.

“My God is a wild untamed God, who throws stars into space and sits with me, relaxed, and communes in the forest. How about yours.” – Wic

Guest Affirmations Blogger – Treasure Curry – ||35||: 20 QUOTES FOR HIGH VIBRATIONS – Fellow Bloggers Let’s Feature Each Other Like I’m Featuring Treasure!

Kevy’s Comment

Yesterday I reviewed the blogs of several of my followers.  I follow them as well.  I found that we are connected in several ways, namely in perspective on life, love, and spirituality, just by reading their posts.  I posted comments to several of the posts that inspired me and asked their permission to feature them on my site.

Treasure Curry was one of those bloggers who I’ve decided to feature today. 

As I mentioned in a post comment, I no longer hold on to old relationships that don’t vibe with who I am today just because of history or tradition.  Many of those relationships were simply held together by kinship, religion, race, or class, but not by spiritual connection.  None of these things have to do with my true spirit, my true essence. 

Therefore, in these crucial times, I have abandoned many relationships, including family ones, that do not elevate my spirit.  Instead, I find adventure in meeting new kindred spirits randomly, such as Treasure Curry’s.

Her post, on keeping our vibration high, caught my eye because in my post on Pure Potentiality, I emphasized elevating to a higher vibration.  Treasure’s post highlights 20 quotes for keeping our vibration high.  I enjoy each of them.  She gave me permission to feature her post, and to feature her.

The Spiritual Law of Pure Potentiality From A Black Man – Everything That U Desire Is Already There In The Field of Potentiality – 4 Ways To Connect With It

The Spiritual Law of Pure Potentiality is Deepak Chopra’s first law.  I prefer this law as the last one, though.  This law instructs us on how to manifest our desires.  Its rules are simple to follow.  There are only 4 steps to access the field of potentiality. 

But I place this law last because it has been easier for me to achieve after I’ve achieved the other Spiritual Laws (Giving, Karma, Least Effort, Intention & Desire, and Dharma).  Your approach may be different.  I still recommend reading the entire book (The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success), each chapter in order.  Later, you will inevitably refer back to it.  Then, you may read any chapter that you require, in your preferred order, as the time requires.

I blog about this book often.  I do so because it changed my life when spirit was summoning me to change with the seasons.  I have referred to it for over 20 years.  I also share it because I believe that, though many will be skeptical, there are some who will be receptive to reading it.  My hope is that their lives will be changed as mine has been.

Devirusize – Take Off Your Shoes! – You Should Hit The Ground After Reading This Post! – It Will Give U Access To Calm, Healing & Love – When U Need It Most – Practice Grounding & Earthing

Grounding

I am back with a new post and this is a really important one.

This represents a new element to the Devirusize protocol.  “Devirusize” is a word I that invented in order categorize my suggestions for making your body optimally healthy.  On my blog, search the word “Devirusize” to find other related posts.

This element of optimal wellness is on Earthing or Grounding.  I am unsure, but I would imagine that Earthing’s distinction is that in addition to grounding, it includes hugging trees, sitting, or standing in water, or on rocks.  Grounding involves intimate contact with the ground, preferably while barefoot.

It has taken me quite some time to pull this post together because, as with all my posts, I include a lot of content.  And I research and dig into each subject, reviewing all of the included videos.  This process is not just a labor of love, because I become well-versed in many areas of living from doing so.

This grounding thing is amazing!  I want everybody to look into!  It doesn’t cost you anything and if you really get into it, even if you spend money on devices, you’ll find that it’s not extremely expensive compared to the benefit that you get from grounding.

First of all, I ground all the time.  I’ll do it today.  I am doing it frequently because I am expecting Colorado’s winter.  Believe it or not, it snowed here about two weeks ago.  Three days later, it was 85°.

This the post includes me recording myself while grounding, just to give you an idea of how I feel when I am grounding.  …To let you see what I am seeing.  In addition to my own video, I include other videos on grounding from experts, with supporting scientific evidence.  In fact, there’s US government research that says grounding helps with inflammation and cancer and all sorts of diseases and dis-ease.  It is unbelievable that enough people don’t know about grounding and practice it regularly!

Spiritual Vs Religious – Oh Yea I’m Going There – Religious Drama – They Should Have Listened To Their Momma – 15+ Reasons Why I Question Religious Drama

If you have reviewed at least a few of my over 200 blog posts (and now podcasts) you would clearly know that I am not a big fan of organized religion.

Like many people, I have adopted the position of being spiritual, but not religious. At times, I despise religion. …Too much drama. I am amazingly comfortable with my position until I am changed in mind (through experience and research) and spirit (through God’s intervention).

In this post, I reveal 15+ reasons why I shy away from Religion and Religious Drama. Some of the most negative experiences that I’ve had were with Religious people. …Ones who judge about what I would call minor sins such as using profanity, eating pork, or being too proud, while they blatantly violate in worst ways.

As I am judged by them, I could think of a plethora of violations that they make, “In the name of Jesus/Allah”. I don’t tell them directly. I tell them in general through my creative, written, and media works. But I admit that it is a bit frustrating.

I try my best to stay clear of these types of people, though they seem to be drawn to me. I simply respect their beliefs (for them) but fully exercise my right to free will and thought. They spit on me with scripture, while I realize that the bible has 900 versions, and the Quran has 30. I consider that there are missing books, slavery’s influence, and man’s interpretation, depriving me of mine. I am not sure that they realize this.

Poetrimony – Seasons Are In The Air – I’m Melancholy – Marley, MJ, Ms. Bey, Lil Wayne & Others – Know What I’m Feeling In This Moment

Photo – Jeremy Bishop – Unsplash

Today I woke up feeling melancholy again, with Seasons on my mind. 

Seasons are always on my mind.  The theme of this blog is Seasons As Our Teacher.  I gained discernment about Seasons from nature.  God’s breath rests comfortably within nature.  Therefore, I spend time in nature to gain God’s understanding.  In a sense, when nature speaks to me, God is speaking to me.

This post is another mashup.  I love doing mashups because they reveal how eclectic and complex, I’ve become.  But my complexity is not of my own doing.  I am complex because of complex times and experiences.  We’re in a complex Season.

We are in a revolution whether you recognize it or deny it.  We are in the midst of the New World Order and must adapt to the Season, just as nature does.

This post features poems related to Seasons and the melancholy spirit that I feel in this moment.  To accentuate my spirit, I’ve selected original poems, and songs from popular artists, who feel or have felt this same sentiment.

My song choices are also eclectic, spanning across eras, years, and perspectives.  These songs were artistically composed when these artists likely felt as I do today.  Kevy Continue reading “Poetrimony – Seasons Are In The Air – I’m Melancholy – Marley, MJ, Ms. Bey, Lil Wayne & Others – Know What I’m Feeling In This Moment”

You May Not Believe in God – But Know That Satan’s At Work, Bigtime! – Secrets on How He Works – The Devil’s Bag of Tricks

I am reposting this article because of an epiphany that I just had in a discussion with a dear minister friend.  In this conversation, I realized that Satan operates from the same bag of tricks.  The tools used against me, as a Black man, by institutional racism, by friends, family, and The Black Community, are universal tools.  

As the cliché says, Same Devil, Different day.  Kevy


When I refer to Satan, I don’t think of a red naked man with horns and a pitchfork. That is a fairy tale that I haven’t believed since maybe the age of 5 years. I included such images in this post, only because everyone can relate to these images of evil, as they relate to “images” of Jesus.  I don’t believe in the White image of Jesus either, though pictures of White Jesus and Virgin Mary hang on my wall, left by my dear mother. 

I don’t believe that Satan unto himself is of flesh. Satan is simply a spirit, an evil one that wants to separate us from God, and therefore prevent our access to the Kingdom, and to blessings while here on Earth.  He wants to distract us from our beauty and power.  He infiltrates the flesh.  He overcomes the minds of the weak and convinces them that they act on their own accord.  He is cunning and baffling like The Lobster is with coronavirus.  Or, like America treats Blacks.  Or, deception in our families, amongst friends, and humanity.  Satan’s spirit is enmeshed in our destruction of the planet, the once-was paradise that God granted us.  This is where Satan manifested resides today.  

Satan doesn’t want us to know how powerful we are through the Holy Spirit. That is why he’s anxious to block our access to God. He (his spirit) wants us to think that he is more than a mere spirit, a thought, an imagining. He wants us to believe that he has power over us.

But he doesn’t, provided we don’t surrender to him. Continue reading “You May Not Believe in God – But Know That Satan’s At Work, Bigtime! – Secrets on How He Works – The Devil’s Bag of Tricks”

Black People – U Sustain Racism 2! – Change Requires More Than Just Talk, Posting, Scriptures & Sitting On UR Azz – Do Sumthin Now! – Voting For Trump Would Be Better Than Your Lazy Actions!

Black People, prepare yourself for making significant changes in your approach to racism, inactive Black people especially. The world is fed-up! We’ve had enough!  ..not just of White Privilege, but of Black Privilege and deceptive sellouts, who profit from pretending to care about how inequality and inequity affects their own people.

Approach Black racism as though it impacts you, or a family member.  It does.  We are all brothers and sisters, under the God in which we supposedly believe.

Blacks are screwed up on racism big time!  Blacks (we) clearly contribute to their own demise, by not using our most powerful weapons, money, and action.

Black leaders often give the appearance of action, but just talk about the problem.  There is money to be made in just talk.  It keeps the Racism Industry vibrant and self-sustaining.  Taking tangible action could eliminate it., though

Others superficially wait on the Lord to do the work, though He gave us minds, free will, and discernment.  Why put on The Lord what you can do yourselves?

Still, others pretend to do the work but are simply sustaining their existence to keep grant and foundation funds coming into their coffers.

I know what I’m talking about.  I’ve experienced each of these types, and I’ve had enough!  I will write vigorously about it, but I will not write alone.  I help people…many people, giving them tangibles from which they can benefit.  …measurable and tangible benefits, not just talk and showcasing.

Because of the silence White Liberals and Self-Serving and lazy Blacks, I have decided to vote for Trump, or not vote at all.  I will also explain my reasoning in a separate post.  This is a repost to reach more people with this message.  Kevy


Today (actually yesterday) was one of my usual days.

I went to Washington Park. I jogged. I was very proud of myself because I ran 7.51 miles, about two and a half months after being exposed to the Coronavirus. I feel like I’m living my truth. I’m actually living and experiencing what I claim about Coronavirus, Health, and Devirusizing. I had no problems. I actually ran an 8:24 mile, which for a 60-year-old man.

But what was different on this day is, obviously my having thoughts on the coronavirus, and recent police killings and police brutality against blacks.  I’m a black male, so I’m sort of like enemy number one to the world.

20200529_124418I noticed a bunch of policemen in the park and I wondered, what are they doing? They were handing out something. I didn’t know what they were handing out. Later found out they offering Denver Police Department stickers.  I guess they were doing like a little PR or something in light of their reputation.

On this run, two things became clearer to me.  I had a few epiphanies on this day and I want to share them with you, especially after attending the George Floyd protest march and rally in Denver, Colorado, USA.

If U Cared For UR Mother & Now She Is Gone – U Will Like This Post – If U Neglected Her or Conspired To – Go To Hell!

I finished this poem this morning while sitting on the grass in a park, reflecting.  I was Grounding in multiple ways.

I translated the poem in various languages based on website views, by country.   I used Google Translate to convert it from English.  Please let me know if the translation is correct, in any language.

I love my mother very much, in any language.

I wrote the poem in this post on my smartphone so there isn’t much glitz and glamor to offer. 


I don’t expect those who were not willing to be caregivers for their mother to understand why 6 years after my mother transcended, I continue to worship her like she is still here. 

I certainly don’t expect my fake-faithful siblings, family members, and New Orleans’ Metro non-profit deviously-operated senior agencies to appreciate this post.  This is not for them.  But, there is a slight possibility that one or two may be reflective on their deeds and surrender their sins against their mother (or someone else’s) to God.

They have the freedom to not receive these messages by asking me to not send them my post, or they can just ignore them.  Lately, they’ve said nothing and believe in their imaginary innocence. …for six years now.


This post is for those who really love their mothers, who cared for them in their final days, as I did with honor.  This is for those same beautiful children of God who believe that their mother is still with them, protecting and watching over them.


As for the other losers, who neglected their mother when she was near death, for greed, power, or resentment, or those who were complicit in the sabotage of a frail mother’s well-being, may you enjoy your day in hell.  You will meet a lot of your relatives and friends there.   

I am sure that my siblings, family members, and New Orleans agencies that participated in the Terror Against The Caregiver (Me or You) are destined for hell, if not already there on Earth.


I cannot see or talk directly to my mother today.  For that, I have no regrets.  She’s left me with a lot of fond memories.  I can feel her spirit in me, and around me. 

I believe that only those who have shown God’s love to their mothers, when they were frail and dying, get to gain such access to their spirit when they become Guardian Angels, as my mother did.  She was born on October 2, 1918, the day of the Feast of the Guardian Angels day


Thanks, Lil Eunice for granting me access to your spirit.  Thanks for your guidance and protection.  Thanks, God for allowing me to access you, through my dear Lil Eunice!


As for the ungodly ones, in my family circle, and outside of it, I hope it pains you, not having such access, but instead, having access to the pain you caused her before she ascended to heaven. 

I am not being cruel.  Everyone must pay someday for their deeds, I included. 

They too, however, do have access to God, but only in Truth & Surrender to his Truth.  May they open that door, I pray.

…May they change their wicked ways.  Ironically many of my siblings are mothers.  With regard to those for whom this post resonates, I am sure that your caregiving antagonizers are mothers too.  In fact, nearly all of my only siblings that remain on Earth today are mothers.  They all had a mother, a beautifully spiritual and strong one.   Their day of reckoning shall come. 

There is nothing that I must do to facilitate their future or present crisis moment.  God has got that covered.  I only need to remain Truthful and Faithful.  That I am.   Continue reading “If U Cared For UR Mother & Now She Is Gone – U Will Like This Post – If U Neglected Her or Conspired To – Go To Hell!”

The Law of Giving & Receiving – Notice No “S” – It’s One Law With 2 Parts – We Have 1 Hand For Giving & 1 Hand For Receiving – We Must Use Both Hands To Get The Law Right! – Let Me Explain

This post is on the Spiritual Law of Giving & Receiving, taken from Deepak Chopra’s book, The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success, that I read over 20 years ago.

The principles presented in this short book are as dear to me as are the bible’s principles. I have distributed copies of this book to others around the world. I live by all seven of its principles.

If you read this book (less than 90 pages), you can get a good idea as to how my spiritual mind works. You will see its principles reflected in my posts and opinions. It is reflected in how I live. It especially influences how I give. It includes a chapter devoted to Giving & Receiving on which I will explain in this post.

The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success

Deepak’s book, The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success was very instrumental in my spiritual transformation. It explains spiritual principles in multi-metaphysical dimensions. It presents spirituality scientifically, astrologically, psychologically, emotionally, and practically, while I perceive the bible as not being as multidimensional. The book does not contradict the bible, though, it expands it. Every principle can be associated with biblical principles. I suggest that you read it as I have many times.

I have wanted to write this post for months now, but could not muster up the creative energy to do so. I may appear to have it all together, based on the content that I create, but I have flaws and bad days just like everyone else. I practice and passionately believe wholeheartedly in the perspectives I share, but that does not mean that I do not experience seasons in my life like everyone else.

U Receive Blood Lab Reports On The Regular But Don’t Know What Da Hell They Mean – 5 Ways To Better Understand & Prepare For Blood Lab Reports

In this post, as with every post, I have done research in advance, in this case, on blood labs and how to interpret the results. I have also provided recommendations, supported by the medical community, and ones based on my personal experience. You should complement this information with your own experiences and research.

With today’s increasing concerns about health, I recommend that you read this detailed post, and when you are ready, I suggest that you review your last blood lab reports again to see if you understand them better. If not, you should at least be well-equipped to ask your doctors intelligent questions.


I am not a doctor, but I should not have to be to understand my own blood lab reports. They are given to me by my doctor, to assess my health status. But had I not done the research; I would not understand how to properly interpret the reports.

In my experiences, only by exception are doctors willing to spend extra time with me to explain the full report. Also, often I have to make a follow-up appointment just to speak with the doctor in detail about my blood test results, and that’s if they are willing to do so.

Years ago, as part of my ‘Urban-Holistic-Rasta-Metaphysics’ approach to health, I felt that it was my responsibility to understand the reports, how seriously to take its results, and what things to do to ensure accurate tests in the future.

Too often the results were given to me as vital health information but often were never explained. I did not know what the various measurements meant, beyond the information I received about those numbers which were outside of ‘normal ranges’. Hell, they didn’t really explain what ‘normal ranges’ meant.

We are not adequately advised on how to prepare for our blood test to ensure that the results are not skewed by our lifestyle and habits days or hours prior to taking the tests. We are told to fast for lipid and glucose tests but are often unadvised on other factors that can skew blood results or cause false positives.

SHARE – To Know More About African American Culture Start By Getting Jazzy – It Is Love Supreme! – One Step From Meditative New Age Music – Healthy Too!

This post is another mashup. The post is primarily about Jazz music.

I am sharing’s its history and variations as a way for you to become better acquainted with a major aspect of African American culture. It is a mashup because I have additional footage and photos of mural art to share and decided to create content using the images set to various styles of Jazz music. I also wanted to share poems that I wrote, as well as, poems from other poets, adding this all of this to jazz music of various tempos in a visually-enticing video.

As a result, this post is a mashup of Jazz Music, Mural Art & Poetry (by me and other poems from around the world). Not sure, but let’s see how this goes for you. Kevy

Before I go any further, I want to remind you that I am not immediately knowledgeable, off the top of my head, on all the topics on which I write.

I am inspired by life events, observations, relationships, family scenarios, web surfing, and National Public Radio (NPR) to create fresh content. In a sense, I provide a service with my posts. I perform the research, give my opinion, and provide you with references to do further research. You are always invited to respond and even share an entire post.


Though I am African American, and though I appreciate jazz music, I did not know as much about its history, variations, or health benefits until I did the research for this post. I learn something new with every post.

I grew up surrounded by jazz music in New Orleans as a child. My cousin was a DJ at a New Orleans jazz radio station WWOZ. I highly recommend that you download the app for 24 hours a day of free jazz music.

In my opinion, the city of Denver’s personality is very dynamically evolving before my eyes.

With the legalization of marijuana in 2013, the city is booming with new construction, progressive legislation, and appreciation for its natural beauty.  Nearly 39% of Denver’s population is under 30 years old.  The median age is 37 years!

Millennials really showed their true colors, passion, and creatively recently with the protests which are still active.  They let my old ass know who’s running the future, them!  The protests were filled with artists displaying their works.  Additionally, there were concurrent art festivals occurring, as the protests were going on in the background.  I have been changed by the art that I’ve seen.  I have an energized appreciation for, but not for art in a museum.  …Mural Art in the alleyways of the city. 

Prior to the coronavirus, I used to visit the Denver Museum of Art regularly.  Every first Saturday of the month it’s free.  Many of Colorado’s museums are free periodically throughout the year.  Due to the coronavirus, they are closed, without further notice.

Throughout the protest and pandemic, I have never been one to sit at home in fear, sickened by around-the-clock news.  I am still not regularly watching the news and am handling today’s crucial times optimistically.  I am out every day enjoying the scenes and sites of my beautiful city.

Share – A Salute To The Believer – I May Think Differently – But I’m A Believer Too

This post is simple.  All the effort was put into the poem and visuals.  As you know by now, I am still a novice videographer.  But someday I will be exquisite and well-known.

You see how that works.  I named and proclaimed my vision.
I can make such proclamations because I am a True Believer.

I continue believing even when no one in the room believes in me.  It does not bother me.  I love being the lone warrior.
Being on my own energizes me.  It’s just like someone telling me that I can’t do this or that.  I just tell them, “watch me“, though I am often clueless as to how.

God’s Purpose For UR Life Is Imprinted On UR Heart – Deepak’s Spiritual Law of Dharma Shows U How To Discover UR True Self – UR True Purpose

In today’s turbulent times it would be prudent to go within to examine yourself.  There is something very beautifully unique about each of us that we must discover and share with the world.

Now is the time to calibrate our spirits, fine-tune our vibrations.  This is something over which we have complete control, unlike our uncertain future, given today’s racial protests and the coronavirus pandemic.

Tuning the spirit is the most that we can do to prepare ourselves for what may come, which is an unknown.  Though what awaits us is a mystery, we would be better prepared to rest on a strong identity of self and a fortified spiritual foundation than not.

I am basking in the joy of having elevated my spirit years ago.  During today’s Racial Revolution and COVID19 pandemic, I have not been fearful.  In fact, my creativity and energy have been elevated, as well.  For me, it is an exciting time.  In contrast, I see a correlation between those not in touch with their inner spirit and being fearful, worried, and physically unhealthy.

This post is based on the principles in the book The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success, by Deepak Chopra.  Today we focus on the Spiritual Law of Dharma.  Dharma is your purpose in life.  This law requires that we find life’s purpose for the spiritual embryo within ourselves and pursue it with vigor.

When I first reintroduced the Seven Spiritual Laws series, I adapted it for the crisis of the day, which was only the coronavirus pandemic.  I only covered one of the spiritual laws so far, The Law of Detachment.  I took the liberty of rearranging the order of Deepak Chopra’s laws because they work in order, individually and in mixed order when you practice them regularly.

Today’s That Day – Juneteenth 2020 – Whatzup Wit Dat? – What Makes Denver Colorado’s Celebration So Special – The Mural Art Show Makes It Mo Betta

I was aware of the history of Juneteenth, but not until recent years.  That’s important to note for a few reasons. 

First, I want to make it clear to non-African Americans, as you may be actively trying to “relate” to the Black experience during Revolution 2020, that it is not only you who must become familiar with African American history, some Blacks are foreign to much of it as well. 

37329500_2263982973619075_195988896838844416_o

Secondly, Juneteenth may not be familiar to many Blacks (and most Americans) simply because, though it is a part of American History, it is really a direct part of Texas’ history. 

Its relevance may not be as appreciated by states other than Texas.  But during current times this celebration is becoming increasingly more important.  There are demands to make Juneteenth a national holiday in honor of African American slaves gaining freedom.

White Liberal Boomers – ‘White Silence’ Is Unacceptable In Revolution 2020 –Take Firm Action On Racism – ‘Feelings R Not Enough! – 5 Tips For White Liberal Boomers Based On Experience With Annie

White people, all people, prepare yourself for making significant changes in your approach to racism, Liberal White people especially. The world is fed-up! We’ve had enough!

White Silence won’t work in the state we’re in today. We’re in the midst of a revolution.  Blacks recognize that you are benefiting from an unpaid humanitarian debt every day that you enjoy your privilege.

Instead of approaching Racism, Inequality, and Inequity as though it’s awful, and that you must help these poor Blacks, approach your dilemma as though you have a spiritual debt that must be paid.  You do. 

Approach Black racism as though it impacts you, or a family member.  It does.  We are all brothers and sisters, under the God in which we supposedly believe. 

Many Black are screwed up on racism too.  I will post separately on this side of the equation.

But Blacks clearly contribute to their own demise, by not using their most powerful weapons, money, and action.   Black leaders often give the appearance of action, but just talk about the problem.  This is money to be made in just talk.  It keeps the Racism Industry vibrant and self-sustaining.  Taking tangible ction could eliminate it.

Others superficially wait on the Lord to do the work, though He gave us minds, free will, and discernment.  Why put on The Lord what you can do yourselves?  Still, others pretend to do the work but are simply sustaining their existence to keep grant and foundation funds coming into their coffers.

I know what I’m talking about.  I’ve experienced each of these types, and I’ve had enough!  I will write vigorously about it, but I will not write alone.  I help people…many people, giving them tangibles from which they can benefit.  …measurable and tangible benefits, not just talk and showcasing.

These two groups are more damaging to Black Inequity & Inequality than outright racists.  The latter are resolute and clear.  They take action.  The former is deceptive and keeps Blacks, in the aggregate bound and tied.

For this reason, I have decided to vote for Trump, or not vote at all.  I will also explain my reasoning in a separate post.  Kevy


It’s time for you to “get off the pot or shit”, a New Orleans saying. “Shit or get off the pot” – Make a decision. This phrase is most commonly used towards a person or group whom the speaker feels are behaving indecisively. Often occurs in tense situations where the speaker believes a quick decision is necessary or urgent. Sometimes delivered as life advice.” – Urban Dictionary – Deome June 24, 2015

White Liberal Boomers are at a fork in the road and must choose a side. They can no longer ride the middle line as they have for years.

A tsunami of change is already here, and they will be most negatively impacted and left behind if they continue to surf the wave of indifferent, with little action. They can no longer remain neutral, indifferent, or impassionate on racism. They will be held accountable in the aftermath.

If they do not change their ways, they may lose friends, as I lost my friend Annie, their peace of mind, morality will trouble them, and they will be criticized for their inaction, “when shit hits the fan”. Well…Shit has hit the fan!

I just lost my White Liberal Boomer friend Annie last week. Change is happening within our circles and in those around us.

“When your conscience begins to bother you about your past actions, that’s your Soul wanting you to wake up.”Andrea de Michaelis – Creating my own reality, one thought at a time

Another way of this statement is, White Liberals walk your talk. Stand up for the principals to which you have professed for years!

There are many reasons why I feel this way, but let’s first look at population numbers to gain a greater perspective.

I direct the statements above specifically to White Liberal Boomers (Born between 1944 and 1964 (approximately, don’t try to escape), currently between 56-76 years old – 76 million in the U.S. (or so)Kasasa) because Generations X, Y, and Z are already on board and navigating this Revolution 2020. The Millennials are the ones igniting it. I admire their courage and determination. They won’t be stopped because it’s their future that they are fighting for in addition to fighting against racism.

I was told yesterday at a rally, by a young gay HIV-infected protester, “I know that it’s risky to protest with corona and all, but standing up against police violence and discrimination against Blacks is too important to ignore.”

At rallies this week, as I filmed tens of thousands of protestors, I had an epiphany that these young ‘rebel rouser’ are our future leaders. They dominate the population and demand change. …Look…

The Legacy of Slavery in the US – Coloradopoet – Guest Blogger – I’m Excited To Hear Coloradopoet Share Her Perspective

I am exhausted physically and emotionally but continue to participate in rallies with the Black Lives Matter Revolution. 

I’ve cried often, both in joy and sorrow, lost my voice a few times, and have felt intense anger.  I’ve spent 9 days and nights at protests, rallies, and marches.  I have, as have nearly each of 10’s of thousands of participants in Denver, Colorado, USA, protested nonviolently.

I lost a white friend (Annie) who was infuriated by my expression of emotions about “white people” after I  repeatedly watched the George Floyd crucifixion to prepare the video Black People – All People Just Want To Live.  Her last words to me on the phone were ‘fuck you”, then she hung up. 

It’s like I went to an emotional amusement park, where only some of the rides are amusing.  But, I will return to blogging and vlogging this week as I regroup.

I am excited to share this post by Coloradopoet.  In the post-Black People – All People Just Want To Live, I invited others to share their perspectives on all things racial.  Coloradopoet answered.  I am hopeful that Coloradopoet will share more posts in the future.  I am hopeful that one day that you will be encouraged to share fresh or already published content, especially on racism.  Can we talk?

We must not be like my friend Annie.  I will write about her in a coming post.

White people must not get so defensive and must be willing to talk about the realities of racism.  They must try to imagine how Blacks must feel in this revolution, then try to imagine again, on top of that.

Most of today’s Whites were born into the privilege of this hateful inhumanity, innocently.  Most of today’s Blacks were born into the barbarism and disparity of this hateful inhumanity, innocently.  But together we must change it, or it will destroy civilization as we ‘used to know it’.  It is not the same anymore.

I offer the warmest gratitude to Coloradopoet for choosing discussion and engagement, as opposed to denial and anger.  Kevy Continue reading “The Legacy of Slavery in the US – Coloradopoet – Guest Blogger – I’m Excited To Hear Coloradopoet Share Her Perspective”

Black People – U Sustain Racism 2! – Change Requires More Than Just Talk, Posting, Scriptures & Sitting On UR Azz – Do Sumthin Now!

Today (actually yesterday) was one of my usual days.

I went to Washington Park. I jogged. I was very proud of myself because I ran 7.51 miles, about two and a half months after being exposed to the Coronavirus. I feel like I’m living my truth. I’m actually living and experiencing what I claim about Coronavirus, Health, and Devirusizing. I had no problems. I actually ran an 8:24 mile, which for a 60-year-old man.

But what was different on this day is, obviously my having thoughts on the coronavirus, and recent police killings and police brutality against blacks.  I’m a black male, so I’m sort of like enemy number one to the world.

20200529_124418I noticed a bunch of policemen in the park and I wondered, what are they doing? They were handing out something. I didn’t know what they were handing out. Later found out they offering Denver Police Department stickers.  I guess they were doing like a little PR or something in light of their reputation.

On this run, two things became clearer to me.  I had a few epiphanies on this day and I want to share them with you, especially after attending the George Floyd protest march and rally in Denver, Colorado, USA.

In The Midst Of Fear & Worry This Just May Be UR Season – We Should Endure More Like Trees

“Spring passes and one remembers one’s innocence.
Summer passes and one remembers one’s exuberance.
Autumn passes and one remembers one’s reverence.
Winter passes and one remembers one’s perseverance.” Yoko Ono

“While the earth remaineth, seedtime and harvest, and cold and heat, and summer and winter, and day and night shall not cease” – Genesis 8:22

“If we had no winter, the spring would not be so pleasant: if we did not sometimes taste of adversity, prosperity would not be so welcome.”Anne Bradstreet, The Works of Anne Bradstreet
“1 To everything there is a season and a time to every purpose under the heaven:
2 A time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted”Ecc 3:1-2

Coming to an understanding of how seasons work in my life has been one of my most profound discoveries.

Deepak Don’t Throw Shade – I Just Gave UR 7 Spiritual Laws Swag! – Kevy’s 1st Law Of Detachment – The Corona Remix – Law On Not Letting Corona Freak U Out

“Action without attachment is the secret to a life without stress” – Deepak Chopra

I hope that Deepak doesn’t hate me for bastardizing the order and interpretation of the original Seven Spiritual Laws of Success.  Today I begin with the first of seven posts, one for each law. 

This post is on ‘my first’ law, The Law of Detachment.

I say ‘my first law’ because, this is not Deepak’s first law.  I chose the Law of Detachment first because it highlights a key virtue for enduring through the Coronavirus pandemic.  It is expressed in the quote above, being detached from outcomes, is the key to living a stress-free life.  With regard to the pandemic, we should simply trust God and be unattached to fear and worry about what will happen.  That is the Lord’s job, not ours.  The other six laws are equally important, but not as the first law, in my opinion.

I don’t believe that Deepak will be upset with me bedazzling the principles.  Hating is not his nature.  Besides, in this small life-transforming book Deepak asks readers to share the seven principles with others.  I am doing so now with you.


The Seven Spiritual Laws of SuccessDeepak Chopra’s book, The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success, resonated with me so well that I took heed to each of the laws as I started implementing them in my life over 20 years ago. I was so astonished by these simple laws of living, that I shared the “good news” with everyone who I felt would be receptive.

I’ve given copies of the book in Costa Rica, South Africa, Europe, and other countries, including here in the States. I’ve given the book to friends, family, and complete strangers, in person, and through the blog and on social media.

Needless to say, I am all but evangelically about the message in this less than a 100-page book. Continue reading “Deepak Don’t Throw Shade – I Just Gave UR 7 Spiritual Laws Swag! – Kevy’s 1st Law Of Detachment – The Corona Remix – Law On Not Letting Corona Freak U Out”

Lard Today, Grease Tomorrow! – Devirusize With Cooking Oils – 6 Ways To Evaluate Good & Bad Oils – Don’t Restock UR Oils Until U Read This!

The Devirusize posts are meant to reduce your chances of becoming ill from viruses and other pathogens. This is the third installment and it is on the oil that we consume in our diets.

In the first two posts, I presented the importance of the Sun, and Water and how it impacts our health and immunity. In this post, I present the importance of the quality of the oils that we consume.

Prior Devirusize Posts

  1. Devirusize – A New Word I Created – Protect Urself From Viruses
  2. “De-virusize” Using Da Lightbulb In The Sky – The Sun, Son! – Devirusize UR Health With Da Sun!
  3. De-Virusize With Water – Who Would A Thunk Dat Water Heals – De-Virusize Immunity With God’s Healing Waters

Oils have gotten a bomb rap from misinformation. Most of the misinformation is intended to boost corporate profits, product unnatural shelf life, and to sustain mass processed food production.

I hope to dispel rumors and urban legends about oils, the first of which is that all oils that we consume are bad. All oils or fats are not bad. We must consume certain in our diet because the body cannot produce them.

I am eager to also dispel that canola oil is not good. It’s trash for the body, due to all the techniques and chemicals used to refine it. Lard is better than canola, of course, when used modestly.

Bluesy Praise Gospel Music Of The Canton Spirituals & I’m Not Uneasy About Dem Singing About ‘That Name’ Either

Who would have thought that one of my favorite gospel groups is the Canton Spirituals?  …Sam Cooke and the Soul Stirrers too. 

I guess I’m mixed-up that way, raised Catholic, don’t know the bible like my ABC’s, I’m not religious, but I’m spiritual, and I love the Canton Spirituals.  Let me try to explain.

I don’t know which reason prevails in my attraction to the good gospel music of the Canton Spirituals.

I know that since its Southern Gospel it appeals to me, off the back  I am from South Louisiana.  It also appeals to me because the group presents gospel music in a bluesy kind of way.  I get the blues too.  The songs tell stories of trials on Life’s Road and achieving victory through faith.

My Mother’s Body Expired Yesterday – My Heart Was Ignited By Her Spirit – Caregivers & Empaths Will Understand Why I Am Not Sad

This post is a bit of a test.  I used Artificial Intelligence (AI) to prepare it because I needed it to be published on May 14th.

My true feelings are reflected in the post, but I needed to get this post out quickly before the day ended, so I used a bit of assistance.  Unfortunately and it is 1:00 am and I am still putting the finishing touches on this post and a rushed video.

Unlike many people, I embrace technology, simply because I cannot stop it.  I do my best to avoid its pitfalls while milking its benefits to reach others around the world, in a way unimaginable just a few years ago.

I used the Samsung Smartphone Voice Recorder’s speech to text feature to prepared this post.

It allowed me to capture thoughts and feelings, as they were occurring.  It converted my voice into words, based on how clearly I spoke.  It worked impressively well considering that it rained and hailed as I recorded while driving.

I used this audio for the attached video.  I used the text to record in my studio additional comments.  I can see many ways that we can embrace technology and AI, in particular, to propagate and fulfill our mission.

Mothers Are To Be Loved & Honored – They Have A Special Connection With God – How Else Could The Miracle Of Birth Occur?

This is what I call a freehand post. This is why I am posting it so late into the morning.

I am just typing it onto the webpage as thoughts come to mind. I did not have time to prepare for this post because I have been reflecting on my mother so intensely.

I was so focused on saying the right words that I just could not pull it together.

So, here I am on the morning of Mother’s Day, without a clue as to what to say. I am adlibbing y’all.

kelly-sikkema-DPmevL6jcHo-unsplash

Mother’s Day, my mother’s birthday, and the day of her passing are always very introspective. I appreciate the beauty of having 3 official days on the calendar to reflect on how much I love my mother, the wisdom she passed on to me, and how much she loves me.

Sometimes I want to be apologetic about the closeness of our relationship, relative to my siblings, but I have nothing to apologize about. I simply loved her very much, and she had unshakable love and trust for me, entrusting me with solely caring for her, in the final 4+ years of her illustrious life.

I know that it is not good to think of mothers having favorites, but I may have been hers. She is certainly “my favorite girl in the world”.

I was her favorite namely because I was given additional pampering as an infant to compensate for my father dying when I was 8 months old. Those early years were formative because they cast an impenetrable bond between us.

Later, I would show my appreciation by treating her like a queen all of my adult life. Eventually, it was as if I was her mother because I cared for her until she transitioned at the ripe age of 96.

Corona We Know Whatz Bad – So Whatz Good? – The Positive Side Of The Coronavirus – There’s Always Something Good

I have come to learn that nothing is totally bad in life.  This belief even applies to the Coronavirus.  I will show you its positive sides in a list of good things that will ultimately result from us enduring through this pandemic. 

We tend to see only the negative aspects of challenges because that is what we are dealing with in the present moment.  We have become accustomed not to expect the positive aspect, though it is inevitable.  We don’t see anything positive because we do not look beyond the surface.

But based on my life experiences, often my worse trials and challenges resulted in unforeseen good, which was ultimately realized many years later. 

  • Being very ill made me more conscious about taking better care of my health and lifestyle.
  • Being an insecure people-pleaser for years, through disappointment and pain, lead me to confidence, better self-worth, and self-love.
  • Losing nearly all of my material possessions, becoming bankrupt to care for my elderly mother, humbled me. Now I need less, have less, and am happier.

Experiences like these are what changed how I evaluate trials.  I am constantly looking for the good in bad or good situations.

“Any kind of crisis can be good. It wakes you up.” – Ryan Reynolds


God really is good, all the time. 

If you look for a silver lining in every situation, it will be there.  I believe that exemplifies the belief that God’s understanding is mightier than ours.  The infinity of God’s understanding goes far beyond whatever negative emotions that we may experience at the time.

“Great is our Lord, and mighty in power; His understanding is infinite.” – Psalm 147:5 – NKJV

We often focus on what we experience in the present never realizing that present pain ultimately leads to reward, discernment, and joy someday in the future.  Today’s rain will lead to blooming flowers. Continue reading “Corona We Know Whatz Bad – So Whatz Good? – The Positive Side Of The Coronavirus – There’s Always Something Good”

De-Virusize With Water – Who Would A Thunk Dat Water Heals – De-Virusize Immunity With God’s Healing Waters

The Devirusize posts are meant to reduce your chances of becoming ill from viruses and other pathogens.

In the last, and first post, I presented the importance of the Sun, and how it affects your health and immunity. The Sun can be a double-edged sword. It offers magnificent health benefits but can damage your health if we are not safe and prudent, while in the sun.

In this post, the second of the Devirusize series, I present the importance of water consumption, relative to your health. Everyone knows that drinking water benefits their health. Even I was surprised at all of the health benefits of water. Most of them, I knew about, but some I did not.

As with the Sun, too much water can harm you. I have had an experience, while caring for my elderly mother, with the harmful effects of drinking too much water. But this threat is not as likely or severe as harm from getting too much Sun.

I have written other posts on the health benefits of water. They are listed at the bottom of this post. I used very little material from those articles so that I would find updated information and research.

This post, along with the two prior ones will keep you busy for a while. It covers a lot of ground, therefore I leaned towards providing information in bullets. You may click on the links for greater details contained in research studies, articles, and videos. Kevy

All Of This From Bob Marley Is Amazing! – Ziggy – Cedella – Damian – Stephen – Karen – Ky-Mani – Skip – Julian – Rohan – And Changing The World, On The Side

This post is dedicated to the legacy of Bob Marley.  …And the one that his children are creating today.

Bob Marley’s legacy is timeless and still resonates around the world.  That’s what some would refer to as a ‘baller’.  He lives on, even after his death.  His life-energy is stronger today than it was when he was here in flesh.  He has influenced the world, even in countries that do not understand English.

That is admirable.

I aspire to leave a legacy behind for the lives that I may touch.  This desire has ignited a flame to produce bodies of work in blog posts, poetry, short stories, recording, and videos. These works are for others to evaluate and perhaps become inspired by.

I leave this for others simply because, as life would have it, I am now too old to benefit from most of the wisdom that I’ve gained.  As they say, ‘if I knew then, what I know now’, I would have done many things differently and better.’ 

Such an impressive legacy is much the same as the ones left by my mother Eunice, as well as, the legacies of Martin Luther King, JFK, Michael Jackson, Aretha Franklin, Prince, Nelson Mandela, Albert Einstein, Mother Theresa, David Bowie, Tupac, and the list could go much longer.

“In This Corner, Religion” – “In This Corner, Spirituality” – Religion VS Spirituality – Yeah, I’m Gonna Go There!

The world is a kind of spiritual kindergarten where millions of bewildered infants are trying to spell “God” with the wrong blocks. – Edwin Arlington Robinson

I can no longer say that I am a religious man.  I am a spiritual man, with religion in my spirit, but I am not a regular participant in organized religion. 

I haven’t fancied being a part of any large organized groups in general, since high school.  Therefore, part of my reason for not being religious is that I do not like to be a part of large groups.

Being a religious man is like saying that you are an outdoorsman, a romantic man, or even a party man.  The driving words before ‘man’ implies regularly participating in that specific sort of activity, outdoor sports, romance, and partying, respectively.

I am not a religious man because I do not regularly go to church.

I stopped going on a regular basis in 2014 after my mother passed.  When caring for her, I attended Catholic mass, our family religion, out of respect for her.  I have years prior moved away from the Catholic church.  I came back to respect your religion.  Though my mother was religious, she was also spiritual.  One does not have to negate the other though it often does.

“De-virusize” Using Da Lightbulb In The Sky – The Sun, Son! – Devirusize UR Health With Da Sun!

Devirusize Urself With Da Sun

In the first post of this series, I will discuss one aspect of Devirusizing, properly using the sun.

I spend time in the sun as much as I can.  Colorado has about 360 Days of sun each year, even when it snows.  After preparing this intensely researched post, I am much more educated about the sun.

The new information I gained was quite enlightening and will result in me adjusting my habits, as I hope will be the case for you.  You may just learn sumthin.

Devirusize – A New Word I Created – Protect Urself From Viruses

Over the past few days, my mind has been marinating on a catchy way to present holistic health protocols that I have found to be very successful, after over 30 years of personal practice.  I knew that the first one would be on The Sun since it has been really sunny here in Colorado.  Higher altitudes receive more intense sunlight.

The reason that it has been a challenge to come up with an angle is that holistic healing involves many facets and perspectives, and therefore has a lot of areas to cover.

I do not want to overwhelm those who may be interested in learning more with too much, even though it will still be too much.  I knew that I had to present it in pieces, though. 

At first, I had ideas like The Ten Commandments of Health, The Holistic Health Bible, Holistic Health Verses & Scriptures.  I then thought, ahh, no, I may offend even more people.

So, I invented a new word. Continue reading “Devirusize – A New Word I Created – Protect Urself From Viruses”

In this post, I am going back into time with Soul, R&B, and Funky music.  Music was so much better then, in my opinion, in artistry and message.  I am not a big fan of today’s music.  With music readily available on streaming services, and on the web, there is no reason not to be stuck in time with good old school music. 

Please join me and new guest blogger, Lady G, as we reflect on the music of 1971 & 1972


I encourage guest bloggers to post on my site.

I envision a day when all fellow bloggers will exchange posts that are befitting to their mission to propagate like-minded and contrasting stories, wisdom gained, and reflections to our collective audience.

These bloggers and content providers are becoming the new prophets, the new newscasters, and reporters.  They may not exactly usurp authority from, the church, networks, other artists, religious leaders, or clergy.  They will complement them.

In my opinion, Bloggers and content providers, like Lady G, will increasingly become an alternative source to mainstream media, televangelism, and the news.  We will give followers and readers an opportunity to hear what they want to hear, reflect on what they want to reflect on, and express what they want to, from a more organic, grassroots perspective.  Followers will have a more accessible two-way communication, than with mainstream platforms.

Myself, I have not watched a full broadcast, if any, of the news in nearly a month.  I have been reading quite a bit on WordPress and on other social media platforms instead.

…And, it’s less depressing. Continue reading “We Gonna Go Back…Way Back – Guest Blogger Lady G – That’s My Jam! – My Jams 1971 & 1972 – ‘Catch Ya On The Flip Side’”

Black People Get Healthy! – U Created That Back-Porch-Booty, Front-Porch-Belly & UR Poor Health –Take Responsibility – From UR Brother Kevy!

This is not a fat-shaming post. Let’s make that clear.

I am not opposed to big booties. Some are nice and shapely, like onion or bubble butts. These are the way God made them. Some, however, are big and out of shape from not getting exercise and not eating properly. Some folks don’t even try to exercise, as much as they consume. These are the ones I wish to reach with this post. I am not shaming, though.

As for ‘front-porch-bellies’, that may be a different story.

Our digestive system is the foundation of our immune system, with the gut playing the largest role. Excessive weight causes inflammation adversely affects immune cells, and can even impair cognition. Having a big belly may be a sign of more significant health issues.
“A huge proportion of your immune system is actually in your GI tract,” says Dan Peterson, assistant professor of pathology at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine.’ – John Hopkins Medical Research

Everyone can benefit from this post. It is especially aimed at Black people. But it would be nice for all people to understand what I have to say about Health & Lifestyle.

This post is also a scolding of my peeps. But it is a scolding based in love. It’s like a father chastising his son for misbehaving. I want the best for you but have to ‘lay down the law’ to let you know that I’m serious, but I do care.

Black people (and all people, of course) with unhealthy lifestyles lets be real with each other, okay?

You are a large part of the problem when it comes to the status of your health and the health of your community! I can say this. I am an African American man. That gives me street creds.

You are a large part of the blame for the disproportional impact of the Coronavirus on the African American community.

Before Coronavirus many of you were already unhealthy. Admit it.

Don’t play with me.

I Listen To Afrobeats – Get Shizzo Offa My Mind – Not ‘Afrobeat’ – The ‘S’ Makes A Huge Difference – 2020 Top Afrobeats Mixes & Artists

I don’t just rant when I blog. Most of the time, I’m absorbed in the music. Certainly, not pop music, as you would guess. I like exotic music of all kinds.

I do quite a bit of ranting about this or that, but these are very provocative times and I justify there is a place for people like me to present fact and experienced-based arguments with passion and vigor.

I believe that there is a place in the world for Michael Moores, Van Jones, Bernies, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortezes, Bill Mahers, other figures around the world, and that we may know personally who attempt to provoke discussion about history, politics, environment, religion, spirituality, health, medicine, racism, and anything controversial.

I learned a long time ago in corporate group settings, and in recent race group discussions that the outspoken person (usually me), though despised by other group members, does get the conversations going and get decisions solidified.

In groups, it is difficult to get members to contribute, but just put something out there, then they get to talking, attacking even. That’s kind of what I am doing. I provoke conversations and solidifying decisions. I like that.

But I don’t do that shizzo all the time. Come on now. Don’t play with me.

It can get very stressful ranting all the time. I need to regularly break away. I do it through fitness, reading, praying, meditating, and creating. I nearly listen to music in every setting.

I need ‘theme’ music for nearly every task or event. I have computers, earbuds, wireless speakers, automobile Bluetooth, and nearly every possible gadget (multiple brands) to include music in my day. Some I test and recommend some. My smartwatch even has Spotify and Pandora!

As I am writing this post, I am listening to music. I’m listening to Afrobeats. Not Afrobeat. There is a difference which I will explain later.

There are many reasons why I enjoy Afrobeats music. First of all, it is a new international music sensation that is taking over Africa and Europe, especially in the UK, Ghana, Nigeria, and South Africa. It is becoming popular in the United States, as well. Many say that Drake made Afrobeats popular in the US when he collaborated with Wizkid, a top Afrobeats artist, with the songs ‘One Dance’ and ‘Come Closer’.

It gets me absorbed. It makes me dance. …jog, and workout too. It reminds me of Africa.

YEREVAN – Shared Post – Immunity and Personal Responsibility —

Immunity is commonly defined as the condition of being automatically resistant or insusceptible to any number of diseases, whether they are believed to be contagious or acquired otherwise. The concept of immunity is something that apparently many people don’t understand. This is why they are so easily misled in terms of treatment by corrupt Big […]

The full on force of Pluto recently activated in 2020 by Saturn, Mars and Jupiter has been revealing so much corruption in the world and it’s been overwhelming for us to process the cold hard truth of what we are witnessing. This is a purification process. It’s a kind of hell that must be passed through before the heavenly aspects of Pluto are attained.

Contrary to popular opinion and the current global fear-mongering psyops, the most important way to protect the body from viruses is not through constantly sanitizing of the hands and staying indoors but through boosting its overall immunity. Hygiene is only one aspect of maintaining health and immunity. It is not even the first in priority on the list. I’m not suggesting that people don’t wash their hands or use caution but urging them to look beyond mainstream media for answers to what’s going on in our world.

‘Corona Casandra’ Is Something Else – Kevy’s Earth, Wind & Fire Method To Put Her In Check!

My mind is weird.

I attribute it to being spiritually elated repeatedly through life’s seasons. It’s as if after each trial, I was rewarded with a strong, yet lighter armor.

You see, through the trials I endured, in addition to losing a part of my old self, I practically lost everyone around me, including my immediate family and closest friends. Through my trials, they abandoned me. This, I’m sure, is a familiar story. It was partly my fault because my tests were devastating ones. They devastated me.

Finding myself alone from most people in the aftermath for years, several of which were with my elderly mother as her caregiver, I learned to go within, pray, and meditate. I didn’t practice like a normal person, though. I don’t do anything like a normal person. I kinda celebrate being different. I practiced more like my devout Creole Catholic mother, like an old Catholic novena mass-attending Latina, morning, noon, and at night.

But, I prayed even more than that! And, I meditated heavily, while my mother Eunice did not. I tried to teach her and caught her watching me, when her eyes were supposed to be closed. It didn’t work. She was too old school and that was just weird to her.

I spent hours praying and meditating, even while working, exercising, jogging, and writing. Over time, I got really good at it. I still practice this way today. After over 30 years of regular practice, it has elevated my vibration. Today, I see all sorts of visions, epiphanies, and creative ideas. Sometimes having these regular inner visions alienates me from others. I take that as part of the responsibility for these gifts.

“Through devotion, blessed are the children. Praise the teacher, that brings true love to many.” – Devotion – Earth, Wind & Fire

Anyway, the way that it relates to my mind being weird is that I was jogging just yesterday, and all kinds of ideas were popping into my head. I was using my new Fitbit Versa 2 for the first time, listening to the soul music group Earth, Wind & Fire. The music stopped for a mile or so, so I jogged and prayed, as more ideas would pop into my head.

SHARE – Kevy’s Back – He’s Been Hanging With Corona Though – Now He’s Separating Wheat From Tares

As you get older, you find that often the wheat, disentangling itself from the chaff, comes out to meet you. – Gwendolyn Brooks


Friends, I am finally returning to Life Seasons As A Teacher, more passionate than ever! I have been on Life’s Road and have become more discerned, strengthened, and corrected. I have been tried many times, but never convicted. I have many stories to share in future posts.

But I must first present content on the matter at hand, Corona.

I am returning with an enemy whom I befriended for a bit. Her name is Corona. She’s left me now, stronger than I was before she came into my life. Corona had to move on from me. She is no longer amused with me and knew that there is a world of more suitable and submissive mates for her. I am a strong man. Maybe that’s why she left me.

I no longer wish Corona in my life, but I appreciate all that she revealed to me about me, and about ‘people’. …about our world. Her most powerful skill is in her ability to separate the wheat from the tares.

I will be sharing with you, what Corona revealed to me in the next several posts.

Just Weeks Ago I Feared A Boulder Headed Straight Towards Me! – Didn’t Realize I Had Asked For It

At the seeming climax of many of my trials, I tend to experience vivid emotions of worry and fear, just like the next person.  I am not immune to any human emotions.  I have been an emotional animal at times, that an insensitive person couldn’t tolerate.

But, big but, I pride myself in managing human disappointment, pain, grieving, anger, and resentment.

I credit my abilities to manage the things that human go through to mediation, prayer also.  But I do tend to meditate more than I pray.  I practice a form of Prayer-Meditation, whereby I put the intention of my prayers in the air by merely thinking about them.  And, in so doing, I am praying much the same as speaking them.

I Knew This Day Would Come But Didn’t Expect It To Be Today – It Must Be The Grounding!

I knew that after taking as much time off as I needed, I would one day return to posting on the blog. 

I never stop writing, but most of it is personal or pieces I share in writing workshops.  Otherwise, I’ve been very private about my writing.  I have a great deal that I have yet to share.

This is why I often say that I write when I want to.  My writing tends to reveal my deepest feelings and in opening up that much, I must ‘feel’ doing so in my spirit before I really can.

Well, today is one such day! I think I may have mustered up the courage to write again.


I recently endured through a very challenging life trial, the first of its kind for me.  I went from worry, to fear, to awakening, and breakthrough, over the past few months.  Nonetheless, I held true to writing.  Most of it was written in private on my smartphone as draft emails that were never sent.

Until I get into the full swing of blogging regularly, I ask that you bear with me. 

I really have been through a great deal, really.  I am, though, once again changed.

I feel spiritually transformed in an even greater way.  The primary reason is that during my trials, as with this recent one, I found myself coping alone, after disappointedly expecting at least a small entourage of support from those around me.

And it each of these trials, I ultimately surrendered to The Lord, totally.  In every case, I was victorious, even when it appeared that I really wasn’t.

I have yet again been vibrationally elevated!  I can feel it but have not yet discerned how the universe wants me to use it.  I am awaiting the answer in a whispered message, at the most unexpected time.

Bear with my blogging because it may seem random.  I will start by sharing some private poetry and try to build full posts around it.

Luv

I Don’t ‘Look to the Hills’ Anymore – Now I Look To My Feet and To The Ground – ማናቸውንም ‘ወደ ኮረብታዎች ዞር አልልም’ – አሁን የእኔን እግር እና ወደ መሬት እመለከታለሁ

The Hills deceived me. – Kevy Michaels

My friends, I realize that I have not been blogging lately. Perhaps a few of you who are loyal followers noticed. With this short post, I hope to assure you that I’m still ticking quite vigorously, but in the background.

Friends, I am in the midst of yet another epic battle. …Another spiritual war.

I am not fearing this one simply because I am a warrior, having been spiritually elevated by each of my past triumphs. Just as all the rest have, this war will end in me gaining another honorable metal to pin on my lapel.

I believe that every story has already been told. This is why in movieland there are so many remakes. I find myself as a star character in the story of David & Goliath. I am David. This battle is spiritual simply because it challenges how loyal I am to The Lord, and Truth, two topics that I have blogged on, almost evangelistically.

I assure you that both Spirit and Truth are non-negotiable for me.

U Have Digestive Issues – U May Be ‘Kray Kray’ Too – The Gut’s Brain Connection & To Other Organs and Diseases

Kray Kray Slang – JayZ

I see myself as very astute with regard to heal and healing naturally. I am not a doctor, but in many areas, I feel that I know more than doctors, as it relates to my body. I have defied their recommendations many times over the past 30 years, successfully.

I am not quick to take prescription medicines without doing research and knowing how the body functions. Laziness and detachment are the main reasons most people are submissive to doctors’ whims.

martin-brosy-758535-unsplash

I try to avoid doctors and prescription drugs like the plague. My view of Western medicine is perhaps too simplistic for most but has worked well for me. To sum up my philosophy, I have five main reasons that cause me to be pragmatic about Western medicine.

  1. It’s For Profit: Western medicine is not always a humanitarian endeavor. It is mainly an entrepreneurial endeavor. Though doctors want to treat your conditions, they never claim to heal them, and their recommendations and diagnoses are influenced by profit. Many doctors no longer practice and are becoming Hospitalist. Their incentives and bonuses are impacted by institutional revenues. They do not get bonuses for the effectiveness of their treatments. They are not penalized for bad medical advice.
  2. It Excludes Spirituality: I trust The Lord. Western medicine does not include spirituality’s benefits to healing. I do. When I consider all of the intricacies of the human body, I am confident that The Lord is amazing and that man will never comprehend how hundreds of bodily processes work, nor understand how the trillions of cells, molecules, bacteria, fungi, and parasites impact health and healing. Trying to do so would be similar to man trying to defeat global warming without addressing lifestyle causes. And, don’t get me started on how the fake-faithful dismiss true spirituality in health. Many of my ‘holiest’ family members, who spit scripture on a dime, are obese, have cardiovascular issues, and other types of serious health issues, simply because they fail to honor the body temple to which they were endowed.
  3. It Does Not Emphasize Lifestyle: Western medicine dedicates little attention to lifestyle and nutrition. They will quickly prescribe medications, often to be taken for the rest of your life, and give a brief blurb on corrective lifestyle and nutrition changes that might actually cure. They tend to say what the patient wants to hear which often does not require that they make any significant changes in how they live. Our ‘free will to choose’ leads us to do as we please. This is yet another instance of free will fucking us up.
  4. Doctors Never Heal: Doctors never heal. They never make such claims not only because they don’t, but for liability purposes. I believe that Diet, Lifestyle, Stress Management, and Spirituality has the potential to heal.
  5. Doctors Are Not Holistic: Doctors do not take a holistic approach to healing. Nearly every doctor is a specialist. Family Practice and Internal Medicine doctors are dwindling because these are the least profitable types of practices. In focusing on specialties, they tend to relieve what is in their specialty, without paying much attention to root causes. The body, on the other hand, is all interconnected and relational. These two facts are polar opposites.

If U’ve Been Lonely – 360° That! – The Truth Is That U May Be In The Room Of Knowledge

Lately, I have been having incidences where I am in the midst of negative energy.  I say lately, but it has been a trend with me for over ten years.  It is just that now I understand it because I’ve successfully endured it.  I know it well and can recognize its characteristics. 

One characteristic of this feeling that I phrase often is feeling is that it’s as if the devil’s army is against me.  I felt that way when I struggled to care for my mother.  I’ve also felt it when I was opposed and resisted for my natural health and healing choices.

When this energy is happening around me, it seems that situations and people, who are totally unrelated or aware of one another, unknowingly conspire against me.  Some people refer to it as bad luck, or bad karma, when everything seems to go wrong.  But, in this case, everyone seems to go wrong.

I’ve come to learn that this is a phase of the spiritual transformation process.  To make it to the other side, you must be triumphant in a few spiritual wars.  I seem in then every day.

During this process, I’ve also experienced sickness and exhaustion  One positive aspect of the transition, though, is that I’ve experienced an astounding creative boost.  Ideas pop into my head by the second!

My aura shines brilliantly!  And though others may not see it, they know that it is there.  They sense something strange, yet effervescing about me.  Complete strangers may resist me and cause a confrontation with me just to break me and get to the bottom of what makes you tick.

Those in my immediate circle watch in disbelief, though I’m metamorphosizing before their very eyes.  Family and friends, as mine did, would say that I’m crazy at worst, and hard to take, at best.

I Apologize But I Got Sucked In By Social Media – The Gratification Is Rather Instantaneous

My dear friends, I apologize for not posting much lately.  There are many reasons. 

I don’t need to tell you how busy I have been.  I’m sure you are too.  You may have never noticed.

Though not on the blog, on almost every post.  Lately, I haven’t been much time into my creative tasks, though I have written a few poems and other works.  I’ve just been busy with life.  Well, I guess you could also consider that creative since I regularly turn my trials into poems and into songs.

But I have been primarily busy because I’ve been sucked in by social media. 

I started Instagram, Pinterest, Google+, and Facebook accounts at the same time that I started blogging.  I remember the date well, May 19, 2018.  I started out with a bang!  I can remember writing up to six posts in one day.  I was on pure adrenaline back then because of the excitement of being appreciated by folks literally from around the world.  I slept very little, too anxious to share my spirit with you.  Your comments inspired me to write even more.

And U! And U! You Will Respect Me! – 7 Days 7+ Quotes – On Respect

Less than a month ago, on January 5, 2019, I celebrated my 59th birthday.  I celebrated it alone because I chose to.  I rarely drink and don’t like bars, so that was out of the question.  Every time I drink, usually one drink, I just get cranky and sleepy.  And, I can feel even the slightest effect on my body.  I just don’t feel balanced the next morning.


I can’t remember how the weather was, but I don’t drive when there is snow or ice on the road.  I thought I’d just stay home instead.

Don’t go feeling sorry for me, though.  It was by choice and by the circumstance that I was alone on my birthday.   I just don’t vibrate the way I used to.  In the past, I would have partied hardy.

But in a spur of the moment, I treated myself to a Mexican feast.  I didn’t have to drive far because the restaurant is located virtually across the street.  When the staff got word that it was my birthday, they sent me a Margarita and a shot of tequila.  I ate well and drank both drinks.  I left joyful and tipsy.  It was a great night, nonetheless!

All week I had a burning desire to write about Respect and had planned to do it that night.  But by the time I got home, at about 8 pm, I could not write.  My head was not there.  It was a very funny thought of me even trying to because lately, I have been dictating my posts through a new Blue microphone that I recently purchased for video audio narrating, and maybe later for podcasts.

The way that I felt that night, this story would have come out all wrong.  The AI in Microsoft Word’s dictation functionality was not developed for slurred speech.  So, I put this post on the shelf.

Then before I knew it, about a month flew by.  I was inundated with tasks related to school scholarships, writing, attending workshops, copyediting, and feeling deeper that I needed a change in my life.  I felt that a major change was to occur in 2019.  I didn’t think hard enough to know exactly how, but I knew that it would.  I still don’t know how.

Not Much Of A Drinker But I’m Enamored For Hours In This One Bar – The Buddha Bar’s Zen Chill Music

Music has always been a major influence in my life, even as a child. 

When I was not much older than 6 or 7 years old, I used to listen to the Motown Sound.  My sister’s husband was a deejay, on the most popular black AM radio station in New Orleans, WYLD, and he’d bring free copies of virtually every 45 that was released.  Since the Motown Sound was most popular, we ended up having nearly every song released.

Along with my brothers and sisters, we would pantomime performances of the Temptations, the Four Tops, and the Supremes to name a few.  I still remember the words to songs that were released when I was a young child.

Back then, my sister Annette, and my brother Ulysses had the strangest music tastes, considering that they were fairly young and products of the ghetto.  My sister would have days where she would play Johnny Mathis albums it seems for the whole day.  Her go-to song was Chances Are.  

My brother was in love with Nancy Wilson.  He would do pretty much the same, often playing Guess Who I Saw TodayMusic was so integral in our ghetto lives that we embraced everyone’s choices, and even me, at a very young age, would eventually learn to appreciate Johnny Mathis and Nancy Wilson.

Perfect old record player cabinet For 1960s Mid Century Modern Stereo Console SYLVANIA RecordMy family, as most black families did back then, had two very elegant phonograph consoles, build with craftmanship into very nice solid wood cabinets that looked like an elegant piece of furniture.  It served as the foundation of our modest entertainment endeavors.  When the top was closed, and my mother placed a lace dolly and a vase of plastic flowers on top, and polish it with that weird-smelling furniture oil.  One would never know that it was a record player until it was opened, and guest would say, ‘Oh I didn’t realize that was a record player.’  For a moment, we would feel white-privileged.  It was a big bulky piece of furniture that only housed two speakers, a turntable, and storage area for 45s and LPs, but it was nearly the center of our lives back then.

gpo-bermuda_05_bIn addition, either I or my sisters would get a portable record player for Christmas.  …Sort of the Easy Bake Over of record players, allowing us to listen to music in our rooms upstairs.  It did not have a big sound because the speakers were transistor-radio-sized, but we enjoyed listening to the latest music just the same.  Upstairs we would sing, dance and listen in private, well almost.

Music is also a significant aspect of New Orleans’ culture.  It’s about ‘what-n-what’ with our food.  New Orleanians hold deep pride in both.  We have our own style of music, and that tradition continues today with new styles like New Orleans bounce music.  I’m not that crazy about New Orleans bounce music.  But our most popular music back then was New Orleans blues, soul, jazz, Mardi Gras, and second line music.

Sometimes in 2019 U May Find UR Self Missing In Action – And, It’s All Good!

I know it may seem like I’ve been missing in action, but I’ve actually been quite busy.  With the new year here it’s always a very cathartic and reflective time for me because I spent the last few holiday seasons with my mother and caring for her.  Now that she’s in heaven, I still go through a bit of grieving, and then it gets a little sentimental, and also reflective because my birthday is right at the beginning of the year.

So during this time of year, I’m always thinking about those things that I wish to change about myself.  I’m on a constant effort to improve myself.  So, I’ve been reflecting a lot lately, thinking about what I don’t want to repeat in 2019.

I’ve been reflecting on my growth in spirituality, health, discernment, and wisdom.  I like focusing on the lessons I’ve learned, deciding what I want to leave behind in the passing year.   I don’t put as much emphasis on what I want to accomplish in the new year.  I find it to be a lot more effective focusing on what has passed simply because I’ve already lived out the past year.  It is tangible.  I have concrete proof and evidence in support for making the decisions on what works for my greater good and what doesn’t.

If I focus only on New Year’s goals, it becomes a bit of a fantasy.

There’s so much uncertainty in goals for the future.  Don’t get me wrong it’s always good to have goals because they do motivate movement.  But I don’t want to be goal-oriented to the point of having the audacity to think that I’m in control.  The ego is cunning and tries us this way.  I’m not in control though, God is.  Many times New Year’s plans just don’t work out the way I plan them, and as a result, I set myself up for big disappointments.  These often lead to even bigger setbacks.

Crying and Being Alone – Poetrimony – By Me – KEV-ee MY-kelz, A Grown Man

“If I cry, it’s because I’m very angry and I can’t do anything about it because I’ve run into a dead end. That’s when the tears would come down.” – Rihanna

Babies are smarter than we think. They have not been inhibited by ‘the world’ and are more in touch with their God-given emotions than we are. Generally speaking, society, on the other hand, is not as smart as babies are. Society views crying as weak. Most people shun it. This is especially true for men.

As they say, Real Men Don’t Cry’. You may follow that adage if you want to, but I think that it is pure bullshit. Crying is healthy. Take it from someone who has cried rivers as wide as the Mississippi River.

Today, I freely cry whenever I want to. I find that since getting closer to God, I cry even more. Unlike yesterday, I cry more out of joy, than out of pain. But I also allow myself to cry when in pain. I do it because I know that letting it out just feels better. And, research has revealed that crying is a healthy thing to do.

A key requisite to crying is surrender. You must surrender, whether in public or private, to cry, especially in painful instances. Surrendering happens to be the gateway to God. Crying is a spiritual act.


“And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.” – Revelation 21:4


We should have figured this out a long time ago, though. Think about it. Crying is our natural emotional reaction. There are few natural reactions that I know of that are not good for us. Crying is the body and mind’s reaction to internal or external stimuli, that is as cleansing just as eliminating waste.


Inspiring Gospel Song

This song, the one below will deeply resonate with someone.  I really feel that it will.  It certainly does with me.  It seems appropriate for this post.

Ok, my Friends don’t beat me up for what I’m about to say in the last part of this thought.

If you are going through or have experienced trials and pain beyond what anyone can even comprehend, listen to this song to inspire you.

When you do, see God as you see HIM, not the way any man dictates. ..even the singers in this song. …As U see HIM! It’s your right. Now listen. Kevy Michaels

Poems & Song

Still standingWhat I love most about my poetry, outside of the fact that words come to me sporadically, almost magically.  I see the fluidity of my poetry as God sending messages to me. 

What makes writing my poems so fulfilling is that I write from my heart, based on what I am feeling at the moment of creating.  I have dated the poems that I’ve written for the past 20 or so years and can pinpoint what experience life was introducing me to at the time. 

 I call it Poetrimony, a poetic testimony.  Kevy Continue reading “Crying and Being Alone – Poetrimony – By Me – KEV-ee MY-kelz, A Grown Man”

My Intention Is To Inspire U With Random Music I Selected – Gratitude Dance To Celebrate U!

Here is a collection of songs and videos that I selected for my friends to clear your mind and set you off confidently to complete the rest of this week.  I personally selected these songs for that purpose and attempted to eliminate any deflating messages and images, as best I could.

As I mentioned, I am very protective of what I allow into my psyche.  You should find that these songs are psyche-safe.  Some of the artists may be familiar, while others may be relatively new.  They cover various genres, but I have an affinity to reggae and trap gospel, so it is well represented.

The selection is varied enough that everyone should at least find one song (or more) that inspires their day.

We must work at maintaining focus, strength, and clarity in today’s times.  It won’t just come unless we put in the work, as is in this case, with theme music.  I believe that new era prophets will use music, poetry, rhyme, and creativity to combat human disregard and destruction. 


Listen and Dance Because It’s good for the Body Mind & Soul

 “A time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance;” – Ecclesiastes 3:4

To make it a spiritual experience, let us all dance in celebration of feeling Gratitude and Love For Yourself.

Why not? There’s an endless list of things for which we are grateful.  The list of what makes you beautiful should be nearly endless, as well.   Think up your lists while you listen and dance. Dance to these inspiring songs will lead you along.

Dancing 1While listening, also reflect on the year that is nearly at its end, and visualize the future that you desire in 2019 and beyond.  What will not make the cut in 2019?  What will you ignite in 2019?  This music provided animated music for listening reflection and celebration dancing.
