STOP THE MADNESS!

STOP THE MADNESS!

‘Insecurities are about as useful as holding a Grenade after the pin has been pulled!’

 

Upon viewing the internet this Morning I came across the articles that talked about the teenage girls and boys that have been posting videos and photos of themselves on YouTube and asking the public if they are Pretty or Ugly. My initial thought was, ‘What have We come to in this present day?’ ‘Where are We headed?’ The more I pondered this issue the more it came to Me that this is something that goes on daily with millions and millions of individuals and not only on YouTube with teenagers but with individuals of ALL ages in every area of day-to-day life.

BEAUTY…Or what We are lead to believe is BEAUTY is pushed into Our faces or pressed upon Us continually on television, in magazines, on the internet, on the streets, at work, even at church as We worship and if One is not Secure in who and what they are, they tend to fall for the BEAUTY Lies or they try their best to transform themselves into the Lie…

‘Her body is Nice. She doesn’t have a stomach.’ ‘I Want to be like that?’

‘He is built like a statue of David with those muscles. That’s what the Women like!’ ‘I Want to look like that?’

‘She has a Nice, Round behind.’ ‘I have to get my behind like that?’

‘Her breasts are so perky!’ ‘I have to get some of those so the guys will look at me?’

‘He has a head full of hair.’ ‘I have to get treatments or something to grow my hair back like his?’

“I Want to be Like…’ ‘I Want to be Like…’

I simply don’t understand why We are such an INSECURE species! So many of Us live Our lives uncomfortable in Our OWN skin and in Our OWN bodies because We have this belief or idea that Our skin, and I am not speaking of Race, or that Our body isn’t Good enough or BEAUTIFUL enough. (And, if You are One of those individuals living with this belief, My question is, BEAUTIFUL ENOUGH for who?’)…

We see someone else and We want to be like them. We are told that Our bodies should be shaped a certain way and We do ALL manner of things, even Life threatening things, to acquire that body We are told We should possess. We see another individual that We think or Feel is BEAUTIFUL and We long to look like them. We are told by the opposite sex that We are not attractive enough and We long to be like another. Some of Us are so INSECURE that We seek continued Validation from the opposite sex by flirting or putting Ourselves on display so as to gain that attention or that compliment from them and if We don’t get that compliment or attention We get the idea that We are not BEAUTIFUL enough and it compels Us to do other things to gain their attention that are Destructive and Disrespectful to Ourselves…

It’s past time to accept who and what We are Individually and STOP worrying about if We are BEAUTIFUL Enough or as BEAUTIFUL as the next Person.We were not supposed to be Carbon Copies of each other. We are supposed to be DIFFERENT! We are supposed to be Unique in how We look and how how We are shaped. We should do away with having to be Validated by the opposite sex or by others because that only leads to Wrong actions and behaviors by Us if We are not Validated by them…

VALIDATE YOURSELF! STOP worrying about if You are BEAUTIFUL Enough! STOP worrying about if You are UGLY! STOP comparing Yourself to Others and Be the Unique YOU that GOD created You to be. Don’t fall for the BEAUTY Lie that We have been told we should resemble, whether You’re a Woman or a Man because YOU are BEAUTIFUL just the way YOU are!

Don’t live Your Life INSECURE, My Friend. It’s No GOOD for You.

MELT…

MELT…

-‘You make Me MELT and I don’t want to be Frozen anymore!’

                                                                                -Brandon Boyd ‘INCUBUS’

While sitting at the Window the other Morning watching the Sunrise and enjoying My cup of Coffee, I witnessed the most Amazing thing, its Awesome what You see if you only look…Where I was seated on the stool near the Window, I was perched over the sink and in the sink were ice cubes that were MELTING away as the seconds ticked away on the clock. As I looked down into the sink at the ice cubes My mind began to ponder the idea of Change, witnessing the transformation of one of the ice cubes as it MELTED and began to metamorphasize into water once again as the heat in the room carressed it’s Cold outer shell.

As I watched the ice cube transform, I could see the water inside of it move around becoming liquid again, as the still frozen, hardened, outer shell retained it’s icy form, as if it was fighting against it’s Own Changing. As the ice cube continued to MELT and transform, the inside of it that had become water again moved from side to side like it was searching for a way out…It’s FREEDOM. This brought to mind how We are to Change from the Inside Out…

Like the ice cube, eventhough We may fight it, if We want Our Outward to Change, We have to Change Our Inward initially. We have to start with the Inside. We have to start with Our Hearts, Our Souls, Our Minds…Our Inner Being has to Change so as to become a Better individual outwardly. Projecting Our Best to the World.

The MELTING of the ice cube continued as I watched and the water moving around inside of the still frozen outer shell seemed to Me to be akin to the ice cube having a Soul that was determined to Change and be Free of it’s hardened shell. A metaphor for Us, Human Beings and how Our Souls long to be Free from the hardened shells that We have encased them in during the days of Our Lives and the things that We have experienced.

My Friends, let’s be like that MELTING ice cube and start to Change from the Inside Out so that We can Change into the BEST Us that We can be and project and present the BEST Us to other’s that not only We want to project and present but that GOD wants Us to project and present.

Are You a MELTING Ice Cube or are You fighting against Change to remain Frozen and Hardened?

The TRUTH…Nobody’s Listening!

The TRUTH…Nobody’s Listening!

 

-‘The TRUTH…You can’t handle the TRUTH…’

-Jack Nicholson ‘A Few Good Men’

-‘…You don’t want to hear the TRUTH…So, I’m going to LIE to You…Make it sound Fly to You…’

-Ceelo Green/Goodie Mob

-‘Talk to You so Clearly but You don’t Want to Hear Me…Tried to give You WARNING but You just Ignore Me…But, Nobody’s Listening…’

-Linkin Park ‘Nobody’s Listening’

 

The TRUTH…Everyone says that they don’t want to be LIED to and that they ONLY want to hear the TRUTH but when You try to offer them the TRUTH they get upset or bent out of shape, ‘TOES STEPPED ON,’ and would rather hear the LIE that they have fallen for for so long. Its time to tell and hear the TRUTH, eventhough its DANGEROUS to tell the TRUTH sometime and most of the time the One telling the TRUTH is ‘quieted,’ but the ‘Telling of the TRUTH’ is the ONLY thing that is going to FREE Us ALL…

 

(To be continued tomorrow…)

‘…You’re Different?!’

One of the Best compliments I’ve received in life is someone coming up to Me and saying, ‘Patrick…You’re different?!’ I LOVE that! It lets Me know that I am being Me and not trying to imitate anyone else. It lets Me know that I am an ORIGINAL. UNIQUE… Especially, in this World where every ideal in Society is trying its best to make Us ALL the same. ‘Man is the only creation AFRAID of being who he is.’
