My Tribulations Were My Blessings – How ‘Seeking ‘The Answer Spiritually Transformed Me – Deepak Chopra, Nikki Giovanni & Video Poetrimony On Treasures In Trials

Ashes – Personal Context

I’ve had a pretty memorable life, and I’m not finished yet. I don’t say that lightly. I’ve been successful. I’ve had very tough times. I’ve faced near-death situations and serious health challenges a few times. I’ve been on the top and on the bottom. And I’ve endured through it all quite well, in spirituality and in life-awareness.

That is the backdrop to what the poem and video Ashes is all about. …The poem and video that I present in this post.

Obviously, I use the word ashes figuratively. It represents the ruins that I had to dig through to discern that the transformative journey that I traveled was ultimately a blessing.

I authored this poem years ago and decided to turn it into a video just recently. I wanted to convey the message visually. In the video, I am conveying my life journey, as well as the undoubtedly tough journeys of others, whose lives were transformed by difficult circumstances.

Dharma – Our Duty Is Written In The Cosmos As Law Not As Religion – Elevate Beyond Human Tendencies To Pursue UR Dharma – Through God As U Understand

My Evolving Understanding of Dharma

“We won’t achieve Dharma until we become honorable stewards of the universe, elevating our existence above human weaknesses and tendencies, and aligning ourselves with the divine order of God. 

This is an intimidating task for most people.  But we can only discover our Dharma by actively working to peel away the layers of our own human imperfections first.  For this reason, I believe that achieving one’s Dharma is the ultimate of all personal and spiritual achievements. 

Realizing Dharma is in effect reaching one’s cosmic truth which applies to all religions and spiritual beliefs because it is not religion.  Dharma is a universal truth.  Pursuing one’s Dharma, you get to choose your own God.” – Kevy Michaels

I Try To Edumacate My People About Holistic Healing – And They React Like…

I have often said that health is spiritual.  And, it truly has been for me.

It is spiritual for many reasons, but most of all, it is spiritual because treating our bodies as a temple is the highest form of gratitude to display before God.  It is an easy display of gratitude if you can overcome lust and greed, which is unto itself, a spiritual exercise.

I came to realize that health was spiritual the more that I researched how the body so magnificently and intricately, in its hundreds of processes, interacts and communicates, body, mind, and spirit synchronized.  Health is spiritual because it requires absolute belief in miracles that cannot always be explained, like magic, God’s magic.

My Heart Drippings Went Into This Post! – The Evolution of Writing a Painful Memoir on Caregiving & Family Drama Is Transformative

I’ve got a story to tell.  I’ve mentioned it over the years in my blog, starting out with the series entitled, Terror on the Caregiver.

It is about how I am left feeling betrayed by my siblings and other family members, as I earnestly served as my mother’s sole caregiver, until her ascension.  It is a very painful story to tell, even nearly 10 years after the rivalry began.

I often stop, then start writing.  That’s because writing the story hurts me.  I recently hinted at this back and forth feeling in the post Maybe Is the Theme, dated February 1, 2022.  Each time I make substantial progress, I uncover yet another level of emotions, going through transformative experiences, examining myself, and trying to understand how God works each time.

As of today, the pain of the story becomes unbearable only on occasion.  Now, I accept that I must author this story for authoring it will give me the power to formally end hurting inside, and ultimately free myself from it.

Gratitude – Another Aspect of Holistic Health – If You Are Unhappy & Unhealthy, Try Being More Grateful – In Spirit, Health & In How You’re Living – “The Science” Agrees!

I have these regular spontaneous moments, moments of deep Gratitude. Gratitude hits me deeply in my spirit and it hits me at random. I can never predict when it will happen. It doesn’t matter where I am. And, it has just hit me now, inspiring me to write this post!

Maybe Is The Theme – Maybe My Lessons Are Only For Me – Maybe I’m Having Delusions of Grandeur – Maybe I Should Just Keep It Between God & Me – Maybe Poetrimony

I stumbled on a couple of poems that I originally wrote years ago. One is entitled, ‘Maybe’, the other, ‘Audacious Wisdom’.

In these writings, I am questioning myself, and my purpose through God’s eyes. I wasn’t looking for the poems. I stumbled on them. I literally have close to a thousand or more bodies of work. But recently finding them was right on time for what’s going on in our world and with me, right now.

Recently, I have been again encouraged to author a book, memoir, or screenplay on my story. I really want to, and know that I can, but I haven’t completed several in-progress projects. Though I’ve started many and have created bits and pieces over the years, I’ve never compiled or finalized anything.

I’ve written a great deal, enough for more than just one book, maybe about six! But still, I have not assembled what has been written, never completing the projects. I have started several videos, much the same way. I want to complete them, but often I feel uncertain about doing so. Years ago, I vowed to never venture into anything new without really feeling it in my spirit. I feel these projects in my spirit, but not strong enough yet.

About writing, and about life in general, I have been asking myself, ’Maybe?’ quite often.

Forgive & Forget The Past In God’s Time – But Hold On Its Wisdom -11 Tips On How To Roll With The Past – In 2022’s Energy Of Quantum Leaps, Fret Not!

“Don’t cry because it’s over, smile because it happened.” – Dr. Seuss
“Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before,” – Philippians 3:13

Forgiving and forgetting are wise practices to exercise, as we are now in the new year of 2022.

Audio Comments On Forgiving & Forgetting The Past


This year promises to be a year of things moving extremely fast. Master Sri Akarshana refers to 2022 as the Quantum Leap year where everything, for and against our greatest good, will be moving rapidly, in health, wealth, and relationships.

So, we must be aware of the energies that surround us, and we, therefore, have no time to be absorbed into past pains. I say that we must forgive those pains, but remember, not forget, what caused them.

We must especially use lessons we learned from the past in the energy-dynamic environment that 2022 promises to be.

Master Sri Akarshana’s Predictions for 2022, explains that in 2022, things will be sped up and we will react in one of three ways, Quantum Leaping Forward, being the best:

  • Quantum Leap Backwards
  • Wait It Out – Hoping Only but doing nothing
  • Quantum Leaping Forward

Check out his video first, to understand the context in which I offer my reflections on Forgiving and Forgetting.

Photographer & Creator Brandyce (Bran-dis) On Reflecting – Moving Forward – A Review Of 2020 – 2022 In Numerology – She’s A Certified Holistic Nutritionist Too Y’all!

I love this time of year because it is a time of reflection, but for me, it triggers a deeper self-reflection, as it has for me for the last, I would say 30 or more years.

I just celebrated my birthday on January 5th, just a few days ago. With my birthday landing right after Christmas and New Year’s, I began soul searching around Christmas time, while everyone else seemed to be shopping and celebrating. As I mentioned, my holiday season celebrations are spent mostly alone and in nature, as was my birthday “celebration.”

I love the beginning and end of each year. As would be expected, at the end of the year, I usually aim to end a behavior, habit, relationship, or end an unhealthy lifestyle practice. At the beginning of the year, I reflect on how I will adapt to the change in era, time, and vibration. …Or changes in me. I try not to superimpose the prior year on the new year, just as I see ‘every day as a clean slate’. It is a given for me that the new year must be different in some way.

In this year, 2022, I have already accepted that “normal” no longer exists and will never return. I feel more certain that in 2022 I will not be trying to convince others who are on a whole different vibe than I am. I will be trying to connect more with others who are already on or near the vibe where I reside.


I have met such high-vibers through the Seasons as My Teacher blog. I love how blogging allows us to connect with other like-minded people, who have the passion to write, and read posts. It takes a certain calmness to take the time to do so juxtaposed with fast-paced social media.

Deepak Chopra’s Spiritual Law of Giving & Receiving – It’s 1 Law With 2 Parts – We Have A Hand for Giving & A Hand for Receiving – Use Both Hands to Get the Law Right!

“The universe operates through a dynamic exchange…. Giving and Receiving are different aspects of the flow of energy in the universe. And in our willingness to give that which we seek, we keep the abundance of the universe circulating in our lives.” – Deepak Chopra – The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success

The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success

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 U Poke Ur Tongue At Me – Then Make Sure It’s Clean – It’s Ur First-Line Immune Organ – A Tongue Scraper Is A Great Gift 2!

I am so happy that I was indoctrinated into holistic health practices over 20 years ago.  It has been especially helpful to be in this mindset prior to COVID19.  It has made me more open and enthusiastic to learn about the wonders of the human body.   

Today, I am open to sharing the functions of the human tongue.  

It has led me to conclude that Holistic Health is Spiritual.  Practicing holistic health protocols, not only includes practicing spiritual rituals, but it is also the spirit of living in itself.

My years of practice led me to learn more about how our bodies function, which is clearly miraculous!  When you really take the time to research how the human body works, in reaction to diet, medicine, toxins, and state of mind, you too will see that God is real.  Only the divine spirit could make our bodies so ingenious.  Continue reading “If U Poke Ur Tongue At Me – Then Make Sure It’s Clean – It’s Ur First-Line Immune Organ – A Tongue Scraper Is A Great Gift 2!”

Quotes & Videos For Days On Courage – There Is A Calling To Be Bold & Have Courage – To Be Okay With Uncertainty – Maybe U Are Being Summoned?

“Courage is not just plunging in when you don’t know the way, it is plunging in and being okay with not knowing the way.” – Kevy Michaels

I’m not one to bite my tongue when it comes to expressing how I feel. But that’s because today I have courage. I didn’t always have courage. In the past, my fears were really centered around being accepted by others, having low self-esteem, and not being confident in myself. I spent a great deal of my life trying to please others. Because of that fear, and not having courage, I made my life quite miserable. I made many mistakes. But, even in those mistakes, I’m so grateful. Because, that’s why I have the courage today, and I can speak up.

History Repeats – It’s Already Been Told – History, The Remix

“Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.” – Spanish philosopher George Santaya

I am not shy about offering my opinion on diverse topics, offering my perspective, based on my journey.

Though my way of seeing life and spirit may differ from that of others, I feel it necessary to share mines with you. I share so openly to strengthen my own faith. I proclaim my convictions, sometimes audaciously. I also do so because I believe that most people, especially Black people only hear their arguments. They preach to each other, preaching to the choir, themselves.

History repeats itself. I provide several examples in this post. I present my perspective visually, and in Poetrimony, in a video that I produced.


History Repeats – It’s Already Been Told – History, The Remix | World Relations – Seasons As My Teacher – Kevy Michaels

This is a video about history repeating itself in many ways, including Genocide, Pandemics, School Shootings, Economic Crashes, Military Miscalculations, Mass Extinctions, Racism, Assassinations, etc. It’s Already Been Told is an original poem, cast to jazz music, and vivid visuals.


“History repeats itself, but in such cunning disguise that we never detect the resemblance until the damage is done.” – Sydney J. Harris

History repeats on various dimensions. As with most things in life, I tend to not restrict myself to a one-dimensional view.

Guest Blogger Andrea Gibbs – Provides 8 Ways to Spend More Quality Time With Aging Parents & 5 Reasons Why It’s So Important

“Honour thy father and mother; which is the first commandment with promise; That it may be well with thee, and thou mayest live long on the earth.” ~ Ephesians 6:2-3 – KJV

Author bio

I’m Andrea Gibbs, Born, raised, and still living in New York. I’m a work-at-home mom with a background in business development, strategy, and social media marketing. I’m a blog contributor at Serenity Senior care to motivate other parents about how they can enhance their elderly loved one’s quality of life.

Why Is It Important to Spend Some Quality Time with Aging Parents?

Photo – pexels-andrea-piacquadio

As you grow up and marry and start a family of your own, your dream changes into dedicating yourself to work to meet all your needs and achieve the life you dream for them. That’s why you put a lot of effort into your work, doing extra hours and working harder than usual. You become too driven in the work that you set aside your family, friends, and eventually your parents.

You call or text them occasionally because you don’t have time to spend quality time with them and send them gifts because you haven’t seen them in a while. But no matter how many expensive gifts you have given your parents or how many greeting cards you send to their mailbox, what they need is your presence. Sending cards on mother’s day or birthday is good, but it would lighten up their mood and hearts more if you join the celebration with them.

As you see them on some important occasions, you may notice noticeable changes in their health, appearance, and behavior. And start to realize that your parents need your utmost attention now more than ever before. But sometimes, the idea of creating a relationship with your aging parents now that they need attention and care may feel overwhelming because of your busy schedule, and you usually put your parents on the bottom of your list of priorities. You may feel guilty about it, but there is nothing you can do to change the past. What’s important is that you realize your shortcomings and find ways to express your love and gratitude to your parents now.

It is never too late to start making a bond with them. Here are a few reasons why spending quality time with your aging parents is a fantastic experience and a brilliant idea to get you started.

My Mother’s 103rd Birthday – 96 Years On Earth + 7 Years In Heaven – Her Influence Still Lingers – Pearls Of Wisdom Bestowed From Serving As Her Caregiver – Caregivers Inherit Virtues & Wisdom

 

Just last week, I celebrated my mother’s 103rd birthday! You may find from prior posts about my mother, that she is ‘my favorite girl in the world’. We were always ultra-close from childhood until her ascension.

Perhaps it was because I was her last child and because my father died 8 months after I was born. I don’t know, but our connection was strong, ride-or-die-strong’, and everyone in my immediate family knew it. She made it clearer than I did.

Caring for my mother for several years was a tumultuous experience emotionally, spiritually, physically, and logistically. We moved together across 3 states, dismantling and reassembling what we would call home, until our final destination in Denver, Colorado. She transitioned several months after our arrival, succumbing to cancer.

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”

Inner Peace – Personally & Poetically – 2 Me – How To Attain Inner Peace – Part 1

I sincerely share this post to proclaim that Inner Peace is the most valuable gift that God has given us. 

In Inner Peace lies Acceptance, Surrender, Trust, Belief, and Patience.  These virtues are beneficial to the body, mind, and spirit.

Inner Peace was not always accessible to me.  At a time when I earned six figures, I stressed my mind and spirit to keep money flowing.  That was over 20 years ago before I became a new man.  Today, friends and colleagues attempt to entice me to return to ‘the game’, to be it in IT, bitcoin investments, small business adventures, or money-making ideas du jour. 

I have no plans to return to that noisy chaotic world again, though.  I fear what money and chasing after it would do to the Inner Peace that I now have.  I never want to lose this.  I have no interest in going viral or monetizing for profit.  Over a year ago, I deleted my Facebook, Linked In, and other social media accounts. 

I do wish to reach more people but to do so, unfortunately, costs money.  So, I reach who I can on my personal but limited budget.  But I do, therefore, maintain my Inner Peace. 

Achieving Inner Peace in the New World Order, in our new post coronavirus world, is essential.  There are many human challenges that can distract us from this gift, and worse can bring out the worse in us. 

I recommend attempting to attain Inner Peace, in your chosen way, as a regular part of your Physical, Spiritual, and Mental Health, especially today.  In this post, I share how I maintain Inner Peace.  Kevy Continue reading “Inner Peace – Personally & Poetically – 2 Me – How To Attain Inner Peace – Part 1”

Guest Blogger – Harry Cline – New Caregiver – The Best Advice for Seniors Considering Their Lifestyle Options

For the first-time caregiver, taking care of a loved one can be overwhelming so there is a bit of responsibility for seniors to plan for the day when they may need someone to care for them.  But they must also plan for having a sustainable lifestyle that makes their later years their finer years.

Though the experience of caregiving can get grueling, if plans are not in place, seasoned caregivers will tell you, with a little guidance, it can also be one of the most fulfilling experiences life has to offer.

Harry Cline has compiled some of the internet’s best resources to give you a head start on your caregiver’s journey by preparing seniors to someday be cared for by another while remaining comfortable until that time comes.


Harry Cline, of New Caregiver, submitted this post for seniors to select their ‘Senior Lifestyle Options’.  I appreciate him.  Thanks, Harry!

I have taken the audacity to interject in Harry’s content that senior lifestyle preparation is the precursor to senior caregiving.  In retrospect, I would advise seniors to plan their lives and lifestyle with this inevitability in mind. 

…Someone may have to care for you later in your life.  Be realistic about it.  Kevy


As having served as a sole caregiver for my mother as she approached 100 years old, I will not glamourize the journey of caregiving for an elder, especially when coming from a large family, and having a mother who made no concrete plans for her care.  It was a topic that she and the family avoided.

 Fortunately, my experience ended as one of the most profound in my life. 

But glamour came only after my work was done, and God took over.  Now, I smile every day that I think of my mother, knowing that I gave all that I could when she needed me, as she did when I was a child, and I needed her. 

I did not realize until years later, that it would be “the most fulfilling experiences life has to offer.”

But still, I must admit that it would have been a lot easier if she had laid out her wishes and plans as though that day would come because it did. Continue reading “Guest Blogger – Harry Cline – New Caregiver – The Best Advice for Seniors Considering Their Lifestyle Options”

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.

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. Continue reading “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”

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 – 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.

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”

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”

Kevy’s Comment

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

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.
