Inner Peace 2.0 – Believe Da Science – Believe Da Quotes – Believe Prophets – In Nature Inner Peace Is Priceless – U Don’t Have To Believe Me

In Inner Peace Part Two, in this follow-up to yesterday’s post, I provide limited personal commentary.  The focus here is on what has been said about Inner Peace by those in Faith & Science. 

I have said what I had to say and tried my best to describe the experience.  In this post, I focus on what Scientists, Doctors, Prophets, and Spiritual Leaders have said about Inner Peace. 

I have found that achieving it works best when in nature.  They seem to agree.  Therefore, I included information on tools in nature that complement achieving inner peace and healing too.  I also added handpicked quotes on Inner Peace the resonate with me.  Continue reading “Inner Peace 2.0 – Believe Da Science – Believe Da Quotes – Believe Prophets – In Nature Inner Peace Is Priceless – U Don’t Have To Believe Me”

7 Days 7+ Quotes On Peacefulness – Having Access To Peace Of Mind – That’s God’s Greatest Gift To Us!

Many years ago, I recognized the importance of maintaining a peaceful state of mind. That’s likely because my life has always been dynamic, intense, and bursting with passion, since birth, I’ve experienced, and been told.

Over 30 years ago, I began a ‘deep dive’ into my own spirituality. This exploration was a personal one, whereby I sought to establish a relationship between me and God. …A really close one, with no one in between, for no one seemed True. I did not want the layer of religion or the church between us, though.

I respect religion and the church, but I put them in proper perspective, with regard to spirituality. I’ve found that religions and churches often deviate from what should be their main focus, addressing other priorities, such as tiding, fundraising, televangelism, and social media. …popularity, materialism, etc.

They do a get deal of charity ministries as well. It’s not directly their fault, but the sources of their funding, contribute to making poverty and inequity comfortable, instead of working to totally eliminate it, making those that they help self-sufficient.

Generally speaking, they continue such ministries, foundations and governments keep funding their causes, people keep receiving, but their long-term status remains the same.

Though these efforts may be well-intentioned spiritually, they impeded the closeness that I needed to have with the God of my understanding. I seek, still today, enlightenment. Beyond wisdom and faith, I want to be immersed in the spirit of God.

Furthermore, I wanted to shape the image of the God of my understanding. God bestowed me with this free will. I wanted to use this blessing to see God as I wanted to based on my journey, failures, triumphs, and ever-evolving wisdom.

I longed to see the God in me, and in every living creature. I longed to experience a multidimensional sensee of God, not a one-dimensional one.

I remember, in early 2000, when participating in an exercise that Minister Rev. Barry Vennard, of Unity Church, asked participants, in a Unity Church spiritual workshop to do. This exercise still sticks with me today.

Minister Vennard asked all participants to close their eyes and imagine God as they would like him to be. He asked that we imagine how he would be towards us? Would he judge us? How would he treat us when we made mistakes? What would he say about our pain, mistakes, defeats, and victories? How would he encourage us through our trials? …And so on and so forth.

SHARE – Mothers Are Closer To God – Honor UR Mother While She Is With U – Worship Her When She Is Gone – Attend This Inspirational & Touching Service Honoring Mothers

“Men are what their mothers made them.” — Ralph Waldo Emerson

I hold mothers in the deepest regard. I believe that mothers are closer to heaven than any other humans.

For example, when I learned about the magnificence of the human body, it became undeniable that God is real. Man could never create such a magnificent creation as a human being. A mother can, though.

I give mothers spiritual reverence because of this. They make a covenant with the Universal Divine Mother (God) to create children. Childbirth is a partnership between Mothers & God.

My mother was incredibly special to me. She’s, my angel. I’ve said repeatedly that we should honor mothers while they are here. and worship them when are gone. I worship my mother today and honored her when she was with me, especially while in my care, in her later years.

Guest Blogger – God Created Everything – Evil Too? – Are We His Puppets? – Distinguished Dr. Bob Rich Answers These Questions

I apologize to Dr. Bob Rich (Bob) for the delay in posting this article. It was submitted to me weeks ago, and outside of a busy schedule, my spirit has been a bit fragile.

Like many I would suppose, I have been emotionally and spiritually impacted by the whirlwind of challenges and changes that planet Earth and civilization have been catapulted into enduring over the past year. I have been significantly enlightened by how your challenges have separated us along many fronts including racially, politically, spiritually, and “vaccine vs. no vaccine”.

Today’s divisions seem to pale in comparison with historical ones. I have separated from many spirits vibes, and energies that no longer serve me, some in my family, some close friends. In today’s times, I find it necessary.

Gaining a better understanding of God, Life, and Myself is an undeniable blessing. But it is also a challenging responsibility. It can be draining at times and requires an escape from it all, as well as regular metaphysical practices. Kevy


Furthermore, while in this fragile state, I read Bob’s essay on God’s Puppets. It really threw me off track for weeks. I read it about four times. I used AI to convert it to Australian speech so that I could listen to it and pause it occasionally to reflect and absorb. By the way, Dr. Bob Rich is Australian.

I Am Gifted! – We All Become Gifted By Doing 1 Thing – Accepting That We Are – 50+ Tips On Being Gifted

This is another one of those deep, heartfelt posts.  I hope that you take the time to review it in its entirety.  This is real talk.  If it is not inviting to you, that is fine too.  It is about being gifted.  I Am.  You can be too, by doing one thing.  The gift has already been given to you by The Most High.  Accepting it, and God’s desire for your use of this gift transforms you from merely being a gift recipient into being Gifted.  I Am Gifted.


I’m gifted, I can now say! 

How arrogant, narcissistic, and egotistical you may first say.  But I believe that we all have a spiritual gift.  God has endowed us all with a spiritual gift that cannot be taken away.  It can’t be reversed.  It’s in us all.  It’s like death.   Death is certain.  There’s nothing that can reverse it.  Our endowed gift from God in within us.  Whether we accept it or not, it is still in us.


I know that I’m gifted.  My confidence dwells in my willingness to accept the gift that God has given me.  Proclaiming this is not based on any superior intentions.   Many of us have gifts.  We all have gifts that God has given us all.  It is our dharma, a purpose, a mission.  What makes us gifted, as opposed to just having a gift, is our willingness to acknowledge and accept that gift.

I will share with you some ways that led me to conclude that I am gifted, beyond just accepting god’s will,  whatever it is for me. Continue reading “I Am Gifted! – We All Become Gifted By Doing 1 Thing – Accepting That We Are – 50+ Tips On Being Gifted”

SHARE – The Entire Universe Has Been Alerted To The New Season – All Are Uncertain – But Seasons Are Our Teachers – What A Magnificent Time For Reflection & Reconnection! – 7 Ways & More To Prepare For This Season

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.

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.

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.

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”

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

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”

‘That Guy’ Is Forever Gone

Forever Gone (Excerpt)

By Kevy Michaels

I can’t describe my feelings for you
I know that those feelings are strong

I can’t describe where I am right now
But where I was…
I will never return

…Feeling my soul vividly right now
…Been cleansed and transformed

The places where I tried to fit in
…Just don’t appeal to me anymore

I will forever have fond memories of you
Even of the man that I once was

But ‘that guy’ who escorted you
On a part of your journey

Is now
The man who’s

… Forever Gone
