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.

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.

Make it a very great day but admit that you’re going through something. It is normal. We are all going through a lot right now. We just don’t know what will happen, what the outcome will be.

But we do know that Spring always comes. It’s gonna get good, then it’s gonna get bad again. But for now, please admit that it’s a little challenging, then someday, it’ll be a whole lot better.

I observe people every day, friends, family, people I encounter, and complete strangers on the street. I could tell that they’re going to shit, just by the way they act, by the expression on their faces, they’re not answering their phone, saying they’ll do things that they never do. It’s so crazy!

If we admitted our anxiety to ourselves, become a bit more honest with ourselves, and with each other, I believe that we will get through this era better.

We must do this along with going within, to the God within.

In this post, I will include 3 poetic performing artists Erykah Badu, Common, and Mr. MYOB (He’s my buddy).

I also added videos about dealing with and admitting to the challenges that we may be going through doing this time of pandemic and uncertainty.

I hope that you enjoy it until I can get to the other post. Please try to enjoy this content and share it with others who are receptive. …For now, this is Kevy Michaels. Make it a great day!

Common – A Beautiful Revolution (Pt 1) – Think Common

Common Seeks Serenity On New Song ‘Say Peace’ With Black Thought, PJ – Beautiful Revolution, Pt. 1 – October 28, 2020 – Jon Blistein – Rolling Stone

A Beautiful Revolution, Pt. 1, which follows Common’s 2019 album Let Love, will feature seven new songs, plus two interludes. The rapper made the record with a core band that featured PJ on vocals, Robert Glasper on keys, Karriem Riggins on drums, Burniss Travis on bass, and Isaiah Sharkey on guitar. Lenny Kravitz will also feature on the project.

In a statement, Common said he hopes the collection will “uplift, heal, and inspire listeners dealing with racial injustices as well as other social injustices.” He added, “A Beautiful Revolution, Pt. 1 is an affirmation. It’s recognition. It’s elevation. It’s music to go with a movement. Because the truth is, there is still so much work to do. Regardless of the outcome of the election, we need to make sure things do not return to the status quo. The intention of the music is to channel all of our pain and outrage into something productive, inspirational, and good. It’s to help lead a movement into our next phase of the work to be done.” Read More

A Beautiful Revolution Intro Lyrics:

[Spoken Word]

Ain’t it beautiful?

When we smile it’s a musical

An act of revolution and the stage is a human one

Some people spend their lives wearing the costume

When the script is Sanskrit in the palms of our worship

The same hands we go to work with

The same hands we go to work with

Put the real work in

Meditation and stillness so your focus is the realest

Screaming from the outskirts while your voice is the clearest

Wishing for answers inside of elections

When justice was just born inside your reflection

Here we stand, survivors of Holocausts

Oceans of bodies bound and lost

Our dreams swam across

Found the will to still live at all costs

The true mastery of self, honoring tears

Loving the mayor beyond your greatest fears

A small army traveling beneath your skin, walking alone if you need to

The revolution’s within

Our bodies burst suns, wrapped around Earth’s axis

Spinning the way people do and change is necessary action

Our ancestors saw us in the future, in perfect, perfect beams of light

A sacred prophecy of what’s possible

Be still and steal the night

We are centuries of grace

The internal uprising, the creation of race

The spiritual warfare in the one you can win

An army of angels begin where we end

We beautiful broken, warrior ready in soul hood

The wish and the wish you would

The daughters of drum spangled banners

We are the tearing down, are falling together

Our cosmos, our stars

A subtle peace, ain’t it a miracle to simply feel safe

Asatta, Muhammad, Jesus, Harriet

Fannie, Martin, Sojourner

Malcom, [?]

Coronavirus | Dealing with anxiety & mental health during a pandemic – Apr 9, 2020 – Babylon Health

Coronavirus can stir up all sorts of feelings, like fear, anxiety or stress. A little stress can be helpful. It can be the motivator that keeps us self-isolating or washing our hands. But constant or high levels of stress can negatively affect our mental and physical health.

Taking care of the mind is always important but doing so in the midst of a pandemic can be tricky. So, watch this video for some tips and techniques to help get you through your day.

Coping With Stress During COVID-19 – Sep 30, 2020 – Digital Medic at Stanford University

During this difficult time, we are all experiencing stress in some form. This stress affects people in different ways. Take a moment to notice and accept your feelings. These are normal reactions to an abnormal situation.

Avoid coping strategies that will make you feel worse and instead use strategies like talking about your experience, spending time with loved ones, getting your news from reliable sources, and taking care of yourself physically, mentally, and spiritually.

Remember, you are not alone. If there is violence in your home or if you are thinking of hurting yourself or others, talk to a trusted friend, family member, or counselor or call your local emergency hotlines. There is help in your community.
