A FRIDAY STATE OF MIND…
If you wouldn’t write it and sign it, don’t say it. Earl Wilson
I arise in the morning torn between a desire to improve the world, and a desire to enjoy the world. E. B. White
People are funny…they want the front of the bus, the middle of the road, and the back of church.
Some minds are like concrete, thoroughly mixed up and permanently set.
Opportunity may knock once, but temptation bangs on your front door forever.
Coincidence is when God chooses to remain anonymous.
Behold, there is a power of Spirit given to you, which has not been given to other living things. There is something added to you unlike to what you see. Something informs your body; higher than all this is the object of your senses. You ask what is it? Behold, the Spirit of the Living God. Indeed fearfully and wonderfully are you made. Strive, therefore, to know thyself. Therefore frequently contemplate in Silence, that you may gain Wisdom, and let Prudence admonish thee.
It is only the dull, sleepy mind that creates and clings to habit. A mind that is attentive from moment to moment — attentive to what it is saying, attentive to the movement of its hands, of its thoughts, of its feelings — will discover that the formation of further habits has come to an end.

starbucks (@starbucks) logo traces roots back to Africa.
Info via citizins (@citizins)
When you see that Starbucks logo, you probably think the same thing as me: “There’s that ‘smiling mermaid’ logo, there must be some good, but overpriced, coffee nearby”. Well what isn’t known to the world is that this is a picture of Yemaya, also know through out West Africa and the Caribbean as Yemoja,Yemowo, Mami Wata, Janaína, LaSiren (in Vodou) is an Orisha – said to be a Goddess of the traditional Yoruba religion that was brought by the enslaved Africans of what is now Nigeria to the west. She is the patron of women, in particular, pregnant women. When slaves were transported across the ocean, it was said to be Yemaya who protected them on their journey and kept them safe. She is kind and giving. She takes a long time to anger but when she does, watch out, you have a hurricane on your hands. She is said to be the “mother whose children number as the fish in the sea” and that is why she is presented as a two-tailed mermaid.Yemaya is said to bring forth and protect life through all the highs and lows, even during the worst atrocities that can be suffered. She reminds women to take time out for themselves, to nurture their own needs and to respect their deserved position in life.
Happy Black History month everyone!
Sins exist only for people who are on the Way or approaching the Way. And then sin is what stops a man, helps him to deceive himself and to think he is working when he is simply asleep. Sin is what puts a man to sleep when he has already decided to awaken. And what puts a man to sleep? Again everything that is unnecessary, everything that is not indispensable.
make him ruler of the world!
Oh my god this is how a leader should be. This makes me want to sob because America is so incredibly fucked up and this just makes me so hopeful.
