Goodbye to an Icon…Whitney Houston

‎’GOD did not plan for any of Us to Live Forever. Death is a part of the process and HE allows Us to see or hear of it Daily. It’s a Sad day and a Shock when anyone passes on. And, One that was an Icon or Celebrity Saddens and Shocks so many because of their influence and reach that was so widespread…

A few hours ago We learned of the passing of a Beloved Celebrity and Talent, Whitney Houston and We ALL shared in a Moment of Pain learning of her Passing. She will be Greatly Missed by many and Always remembered…

Death will come to Us ALL in due time so, Live the BEST Life You can Right Now and do ALL that You can in Your Power to not press upon Your Life anything that could possibly shorten it.

To You, Whitney…We’ll Miss You and like You sang in Your song and like I Always say…’LOVE…It’s the GREATEST of ALL!’

DIG by INCUBUS

(This is My post for Today while I wait for INSPIRATION to tap Me on the shoulder and She tells Me what to Write next…Read the Words and Think about them…They are Truly Deep…)
DIG  by INCUBUS
We all have a weakness
But some of ours are easy to identify.
Look me in the eye
And ask for forgiveness;
We’ll make a pact to never speak that word again.
Yes, you are my friend.
We all have something that digs at us, At least we dig each other. So when weakness turns my ego up
I know you’ll count on the me from yesterday.
If I turn into another…
Dig me up from under what is covering
The better part of me.
Sing this song Remind me that we’ll always have each other
When everything else is gone.
We all have a sickness
That cleverly attaches and multiplies
No matter how we try. We all have someone that digs at us,
At least we dig each other. So when sickness turns my ego up
I know you’ll act as a clever medicine.
If I turn into another
Dig me up from under what is covering
The better part of me.
Sing this song!
Remind me that we’ll always have each other
When everything else is gone.
Oh! each other when everything else is goneIf I turn into another
Dig me up from under what is covering
The better part of me.
Sing this song
Remind me that we’ll always have each other
When everything else is gone.
Oh! Each other when everything else is gone
Oh! Each other when everything else is gone
Oh! Each other when everything else is gone
My Friend…If You are in a relationship that is Important to You and You LOVE the individual that You  are involved with, I TRULY Hope that when Everything else is Gone the Two of You will…’Still Have Each Other…’ Because, that is ALLL that Truly Matters…

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?

How Much?

How Much?

 

-‘What People Do For Money?’

                        -Divine Sounds (1984)

 

As I was riding along the other day this song came on the Radio and I really focused on the Words as the artist sang them, unlike back in 1984 when the song was played I was most likely break dancing or rapping along as the beat flowed from the speakers. Upon hearing the song this time, at the Young age of 40, I really listened to what was being said and the Words spoke to Me like they were saying, ‘Wow, Bishop! It’s interesting and at times Sad what many People will do for Money or things pertaining to Monetary or Material Gain…!’

As the car rolled along and Divine Sounds continued singing, ‘What People Do For Money?!’ and I sang along with the chorus, I began to think of ALL the things that People Do, Have Done or Will Do for Money and it simply caused Me to shake My head from side to side in a ‘NO!’ motion, as if someone had posed a question to Me that I was totally against. I thought of how some People will… ‘Step on others,’ ‘Degrade themselves,’ ‘Become somewhat of a Slave to another,’ ‘Bow down to another,’ ‘Allow themselves to be Abused,’ ‘Sell-Out,’ ‘Commit Murder,’ ‘Take part in Criminal Activity,’ ‘Steal from others,’ ‘Take part in an activity that they are Uncomfortable with’ and ‘Allow their Physical Selves to be taken advantage of,’ ALL to have Money, keep Money or be in the Midst of those with Money or Material.

Sing it with Me…’What People Do For Money?!’

I guess I just don’t understand why some People don’t think more of themselves by knowing their Personal Worth, which would keep them from doing ALL sorts of things for Monetary Gain. Many People simply allow their Morals and Integrity to ‘Fly Out of the Window’ when they feel that they might Lose out on obtaining Money or when they feel that they will Lose the source of their ‘Cash or Material Flow.’ I guess, too, that when so many People allow Things or Individuals outside of them to give them Worth, they have no other way to feel Valuable other than by DOING ANYTHING to feel that Value, even if it is subjecting themselves to Degradation.

 

My Friend…My Reader, think about it…’What Have You Done or What Would You Do For Money?’ Would You ‘Sell-Out?’ ‘Have You or Would You jeopardize Your Morals and Integrity?’ Or…’Do You know Your Self-Worth from the start?’

 

‘How Much?’ I hope that You don’t have a PRICE…

The Power of the KISS…

The Power of the KISS…

(I read this article and I had to share it in My post today…)

‘…All I want is Your extra time and Your…KISS!’

-Prince ‘KISS’

The Hot Love Habit That Makes You Both Happier Experts say kissing more makes women feel happier. Men say it makes them feel loved. We challenged five women to just kiss more. The results? Fantastic. Learn more. By Ayana Byrd More from Redbook 10 Ways to Heat Up Your Love Life Foreplay Tips: The Moves Men Love Have the Hottest Sex of Your Life…with Your Husband 10 Ugly Truths About Men Unexpected Ways to Turn Him On Have you ever wondered why we kiss? It’s actually a strange way to spend your time — lips smooshed together, breath (good or bad) mingling, and let’s not even get into the tongue action. Yet we love it. We cheer when movie characters seal their happily-ever-afters with a smooch. A bodies-pressed-together kiss can make you remember why you adore the man who was annoying you just a minute ago. Why is that?

 “For some women, kissing is even more intimate than intercourse,” says REDBOOK contributing editor and ob/gyn Hilda Hutcherson, M.D., who devoted a whole chapter to the importance of kissing in her book What Your Mother Never Told You About S-E-X. “That deep level of connection you get when you lock lips and tongues is important.” Hutcherson isn’t just being a romantic — there’s science behind the power of kissing: It causes our bodies to release endorphins and oxytocin, hormones that help us feel happy and more attached. So it worries Hutcherson and other experts that kissing is one of the first things to dwindle when couples hit the long-term.

In a recent REDBOOK poll, 79 percent of readers said they don’t kiss their husbands nearly as much as they’d like; 14 percent said they’re lucky to do it once a day. Alise, a 41-year-old mother of two, admits that for months, “we were down to a peck in the morning, maybe not even that.” It wasn’t until she tried to figure out why the usual zing was missing from her marriage that she realized nothing had changed except that life had gotten in the way of their kissing. Hutcherson often prescribes smooches to patients like Alise, who are having sexual or relationship problems. “Getting back into the daily habit of kissing can rekindle a couple’s intimate connection,” she says. We rounded up some women to test her theory; Alise’s assignment was to plant a big fat one on her hubby at least once a day. “We’d been off it for so long that I was nervous about how he’d react,” she says. But after a week of making out more than they had since the honeymoon, she reports, “I swear we’re as giggly and as turned on as when we first met.”

Read on for five more experiments — and get ready to relearn the power of a kiss…

58 percent of readers… Don’t smooch their husbands as much as they used to 24 percent … Say they only kiss their partner as a lead-up to sex…

Experiment No. 1: A Total Kissing Switcheroo “I pride myself on being adventurous and creative in bed, but my kissing routine is, I have to admit, pretty boring,” Malikh, 29, told REDBOOK. “After four years of the same thing, I wondered if my husband was in the mood for something different.” She followed this advice from William Cane, author of The Art of Kissing,to shake things up. “Slide your mouth to his cheek and then his ear, then back to his mouth,” Cane said. “Also try different things with your hands, like rubbing his back, so it becomes a full-body experience.” Bingo! “My husband immediately went from his just-getting-home-from-work mood to being ready for action. Now I have it in my bag of tricks for when I want to initiate intimacy without just saying, ‘Hey, want to have sex?'”

Experiment No. 2: Making Over His Smooch Style Twenty-five percent of women in our poll said they’ve successfully made over a guy’s kissing style. That was welcome news for Zora,* 35. “My fiancé kisses like a junior high kid,” she said when we first spoke to her. “It’s lots of aggressive tongue-swirling, and I’m always wet around my mouth afterward — blech.” Sheril Kirshenbaum, author of the upcoming book The Science of Kissing, says that might be chalked up to man kissing versus woman kissing. “Research suggests that men may have an unconscious tendency to swap lots of spit because they transfer testosterone (which raises libido over time) to their mate through their saliva.” An interesting explanation, but it obviously wasn’t working for Zora. So to gently redirect her fiancé’s style, Cane suggested this fix: “Ask him to stand still and not kiss you back for one full minute while you kiss him the way you want to be kissed.” When Zora did, she couldn’t believe how quickly things improved. “I planted a slow, dry one with minimal tongue on him. Then I asked him to try to do the same back to me and, A-plus! He knows I adore him, so luckily his feelings weren’t hurt — and he hasn’t returned to his old ways.”

Experiment No. 3: All Kissing (No Sex!) for a Week Kissing had become a novelty for Audrey, 43, and her husband. “We’re affectionate but rarely kiss, even when we have sex,” she said. Bad move, Kirshenbaum says: “Whether a couple has been together for four months or 40 years, kissing promotes feelings of intimacy and security.” Did more kissing but no ba-da-bing make Audrey and her husband feel even closer? “On the first day we kissed big time, and it was hard not to jump in the sack, but surprisingly there was only one slip-up the whole week — our eighth anniversary came four days after I started the experiment, and I fell off the wagon. The sex was amazing, and it was hard to go back to abstinence after that. But doing this reminded us how much we love kissing, and the payoff was hot.”

Experiment No. 4: A Very Public Display of Affection “My husband always wants to make out in public — on the subway, in line at the market. What are we, teenagers?” says Sunny, 34. “It feels wrong to have people witnessing an intimate moment.” Cane’s advice: “The shared adrenaline rush that comes from an unexpected kiss can make a couple feel more bonded. Why not try it?” Sunny psyched herself up and did just that after a dinner date one night. “We stopped on a bench in Central Park and, surrounded by tons of people, I turned my properness meter off and open-mouth kissed him. I enjoyed it and realize now how many opportunities to be affectionate with him I’d been missing. I did, however, have to clarify my boundaries. After our little make-out session, he admitted that he’d almost grabbed my boob! Kissing, yes; groping, no.”

Experiment No. 5: Kissing More. WAY More. “My husband and I average one peck per week,” says Tara, 25. “First we had our daughter. Then we had our son. Kissing over. I miss those hourlong sessions we used to have.” But even one good smooch a day can “make you feel an elevated sense of well-being and closeness with your partner for hours,” Cane says. Tara put herself on a kiss-a-day diet to see if it would work and reported back.

This is Great! The Power of the KISS…Never underestimate it…

My Friend, are you KISSING the ONE in your Life enough?

If not…KISS them and ‘HEAT IT UP!’

‘Just a Crow Left of the Murder…’

‘Just a Crow Left of the Murder…’

‘A ‘MURDER’ is a flock of Crows flying together… A’ Crow Left of the Murder’ is the Crow that separates itself from the flock to find its own Way or to find a better Way of Life than the other crows have settled for. To be a ‘Crow Left of the Murder’ in today’s society is to be Unique and it takes Courage and Heart to be that lone Crow in the face of a Society that is doing its Best to make us all the same or doing all that it can to have us believe that we need to Fly with the rest of the Flock to be accepted. If you are one of the ‘Lone Crows’ that sees or believes there is a better Way and you fail to settle for those ridiculous ideals of Society and its telling you what to Believe or to do to be a part of the Flock, I commend you for your Courage and Heart because it’s not the Crows that Fly along with the rest of the ‘Murder’ that Changes the World, it’s the ‘Lone Crow,’ the ‘Crow Left of the Murder,’ that Changes the World. Be a ‘Crow Left of the Murder’ and Fly with the Eagle to find a better Way of Life…Fly above the Fiction…’

(Inspired by the MLK Holiday on yesterday and the band INCUBUS who have an album and title song from that album with the same name and theme)

Your Sky…Is It Limited?

Your Sky…Is It Limited?

“Ellie, where do we go Now?”

                                                -Mr. Fredrickson ‘UP’

 

“The Skkkyyyyyyyyyy is the Limit…”

                                                -Tony, Toni, Tone

If we look up at the Sky we notice that it goes on and on and that it is never-ending. The more Sky you look at, the more Sky you see. Whether we look straight up, whether we look to the Right, whether we look to the Left or whether we look forward or behind us, the Sky goes on and on. The Daytime Sky, with its Azure backdrop, dotted with white clouds. The Nighttime Sky, with its Onyx veil, Stars flung across it like Diamonds. The Sky is never-ending whether it’s Day or Night.

As human beings we know the Sky to be unlimited with its shear expanse and size and we look overhead and marvel at it daily, its Beauty and Majesty but do we really take note of its limits when we utter the words, ‘The Sky is the Limit,’ when we speak of setting out on endeavors or goals that we have set for ourselves. All of us, have at one time or another, spoken these words to ourselves or to others to express that there are no limits to the things we can accomplish in our lives but how many of us truly believe this?

I feel that this statement is made in the present day with little thought of its TRUE power and the strength within it. Many people set out on tasks or endeavors saying that ‘The Sky is the Limit’ but as time goes on and things don’t seem to pan out or happen in the time that they want it to happen, they forget the size of the Sky and the power in the statement.

If we would only remember that the Sky is unlimited and that it never ends, we would remember that when saying that ‘The Sky is the Limit,’ the limits to where we can go and the things we can do…Never End. The statement, ‘The Sky is the Limit’ truly means that there is no limit to where we can go or the things we can do because the Sky has no limits but we tend to get a case of amnesia and forget the fact that the Sky’s end is unreachable and we give up on our being UNLIMITED.

‘The Sky is the Limit’ is a Mantra that everyone should live by and always remember because when it comes to our lives and what we can do, there truly is No Limit. It takes Courage, Confidence, Heart, Bravery, Perseverance, Endurance, Patience, the Ability to ‘Look like a Fool,’ BIG Faith, Prayer and Belief that GOD is at work in our lives but if we can do this and run the race without ‘fainting,’ ‘The Sky…Truly is the Limit!’

My Friend…Look up…’Your Sky…Is It Limited?’
