Your Subliminal Message: DO NOT GIVE UP!

Do Not Give Up, Encouragement

Sometimes that which is highly and continuously perverse has a tendency to subdue any good intention that could pierce the unconscious or deeper mind. Years ago in one of my psychology classes, we discussed the effects subliminal psychology has on us. We don’t realize how much some subliminal messages affect our conscious mind, regardless of how brief and unconsciously perceived those messages are. Thus, this is why we must be aware of the type of unhealthy things we allow to take root and dwell in our mind and spirit.

There are far too many reoccurring cases where we find ourselves overwhelmed with life. We give up too quickly as a solution could be within our grasp, but we prematurely pull away from a possible satisfactory resolution. Could it be fer? Probbly. So today, this subliminal message is for you, the reader. If it is worth fighting for or praying over, DO NOT GIVE UP! Should you decide to throw in the towel, then make sure you have made the best judgment based on what you have to work with, and exhausted all options before you have come to a final conclusion. Stay encouraged. DO NOT GIVE UP!


Divided We Are Weak and Crumble, but United We Are Strong and Stand

Unity, Division, Learning

We are deafened by the unrelenting noise of divisiveness and evil tremors that shake our spiritual core. To speak with the tongue of the learned and to hear with the ear of the learned, we cannot turn away, flee from or rebel against the light of righteousness.

We walk in the fire of our gifts to listen, seek, learn, teach and embrace. If we do not live in a united front, we shall die in a divided pit.

The poetry of togetherness.

What If Wednesday: The Value of People

What If Wednesday, Jewels, The Value of People

What if we valued people like we place value on precious gems and other treasures? So often, we hear the cry about not getting paid fairly or for what we think we are worth. Guess what, you will never be. We have impressive resumes and loads of experience that seem obsolete to many HR Managers in the world we currently live in. It leaves us scratching our heads in confusion about the devaluing of our accomplishments and embracing what appears to be flippant, nonchalant attitudes from the inexperienced with a poor work ethic.

As our elders live in their winter season, so many are tucked away and forgotten, because we are too busy and there are too many other more important things to attend to. Little do we realize, they hold many valuable stories and lessons that will help us to rise with grace in our technologically advanced society. When our children are curious and ask many questions, do we merely give them a smartphone or computer notepad and tell them to go somewhere because you are busy?

When we finally realize that we devalued the valuable, will it be too late?

What If Wednesday: If You Were a Tool

What If Wednesday, Tools, Hammer, Wrench, Pliers, Screwdriver

What if you had to choose what type of tool you would be and why, what would your decision be? Would you be a hammer, a wrench, a screwdriver, a saw, a clamp, a drill, a trowel, a level, a utility knife, a chisel or pliers?

I thought about this question while I was doing some repairs around the house and it was not as easy of a decision to make, as one would think. I was also reminded of the song If I Had a Hammer, sung by many performers like Pete Seeger, Trini Lopez, Sam Cooke, Peter~Paul~and Mary, and Aretha Franklin. According to online sources, “If I Had a Hammer (The Hammer Song)” was written by Pete Seeger and Lee Hays in 1949. It was written in support of the progressive movement and was first recorded by The Weavers, a folk music quartet composed of Seeger, Hays, Ronnie Gilbert, and Fred Hellerman.

What if you were a tool, which tool would you be? How useful would you be to others who needed and depended on you? What if?
