EYE realized EYE had buried soooo much pain and grief that would take MOST out...and still was managing to "make it thru" AND do what EYE do....alone.  NOT an "easy" feat at ALL.  Just because we MAKE it look easy doesn't mean it IS.  

The point is...EYE was dealing with my own burdens while taking on too many other burdens that were NOT mine to have.  EYE was jumping too many hurdles in a "handicapped" state.  Yet, my resilience and persistence out-shined the struggle and made people think EYE was "superwoman" 24/7.  Hell, even my mind kept telling me that...even though my body knew otherwise.  EYE was walking around with this "badge of honor" that was not truly honoring or healing ME.

EYE was putting others' needs ahead of my own; listening to greedy and needy whispers and folks who had NO idea of my life, struggle, contributions or achievements convince me it was "GOD's will" to serve others more than serving GOD's greatest gift to me:  MY LIFE AND WELFARE.

EYE was spending way too much of MY precious time, energy and resources, either "battling the beast" or trying to build foundations that were NOT nor ever gonna be my own, while being left to build my own foundation alone.  AND EYE OWN UP TO IT!  MY FAULT IN MY OWN "DOWNFALL."  MY "sin" in my "struggle."  MY lesson to be learned in the "desert of life."

EYE HAD DROPPED THE BALL IN MY OWN GAME OF LIFE AND WAS TOTALLY IGNORING AND NOT FULLY NOURISHING THE TRUE STAR PLAYER:  ME!!

It wasn't just the inconsiderate nature of others; EYE had allowed myself to be used, hoping my gift to others would eventually be appreciated and reciprocated.  However, if one can't see or appreciate their own gifts nor understand the WORK it takes to overcome REAL struggles in a REAL world (REAL crowns are earned; not just given), then they will NEVER respect nor appreciate YOU...YOUR GIFT...nor your presence.  In fact, just like Cain, they'll grow to resent it...and resent YOU...only because of their own insecurity and inadequacy and misunderstanding of life, karma and law of attraction.

It was at then that the realest of epiphanies hit me...and "Da Oracle" finally LISTENED TO DA ORACLE...and EYE understood the ONLY thing EYE am obligated to this "world" and to others to do is give them the same thing they gave back to me:  A powerful message.

Save SELF!
Can ya hear it NOW?!
Eventually....you WILL.

May 31, 2015. An "8" day (or night as it be) numerology-wise. "8" meaning "balance and power." And at 1:27am - a "1" number meaning "pioneer" or "original/originating," EYE get the epiphany of ALL epiphanies. Or maybe EYE'm just open to it now. Mentor said EYE'm "different. Accept it." And EYE remember folks around here thinking EYE'm "elitest" and perhaps even a "poetry snob."

And you know what?! THEY'RE RIGHT!!! ABSOLUTELY 100% RIGHT!! EYE LOVE GREATNESS! EYE'M INSPIRED BY GENIUSES! But hell! EYE had an IQ of about 140 as a kid!! Testers wanted to bump me up a grade. (Mom was WITH IT! Dad said HELL NO 'cuz he thought it was a trick and a "target" and didn't want me turning out like Condi Rice! Gotta looove my Daddy. EYEz always on the "spies.")

Bottom line: Most people's "great" is barely "mediocre" to ME. Sorry...then again, not really!! Not apologizing EVER again for liking what EYE like...and NOT liking what EYE don't like. And not trying to "fit in" because the majority may lack "vision" or originality. Why should EYE suffer from "normalcy?" EYE DON'T EVEN KNOW WHAT THAT FUCKING IS?!!! "MY" PARENTS NEVER TAUGHT ME THAT SHIT!! JUST THE OPPOSITE!

Maybe that's why EYE even use "EYE" as "I"....because it's too simple to use "I"...and MY "EYE" is coming from a different place...a deeper place.  Not just a place of "being" but the oneness of truly SEEING and BEING.  Yup...there EYE go again...being deep for no reason...to you.  But to ME?  #thepoint

So, YEAH...EYE'M AN ELITEST! AN "ART SNOB." A "TOP SHELF ONLY" TYPE OF CHICK!! EYE LOOOOVE GREATNESS! REAL GREATNESS!! EYE LOOOOVE BEING AROUND GENIUSES....AND SOOOO DAMN INSPIRED BY THEM! IT'S AMAAAAAZING!!! AND THAT'S WHAT EYE WANT TO SURROUND MYSELF WITH FOR THE REST OF MY LIFE...because anything else is just reeeeeally boring as HELL to me. And WHY should EYE fake it when EYE don't have to?! EYE'M OLD! AIN'T NOBODY GOT TIME FOR THAT! Life's too short to be faking orgasms! Can't give me the REAL thing?! EYE can handle that job myself. REAL talk! 

And the BEST thing about being around TRUE greatness?! It's NEVER intimidated by OTHER greatness. Challenged? Heck yeah! Ever seen two geniuses play chess...or hit a stage together? IT'S AMAAAZING!! EACH ONE trying to do their best. Each a master of their craft...and STILL wanting the OTHER to do THEIR best TOO because it inspires YOU to be YOUR best.

IT'S LIKE A JAM SESSION WHERE EVERYONE WINS AND EVERYONE JAMS WITH MUCH MORE ENTHUSIAM AND TALENT and far less ego. Hell....when you're REALLY great, only the non-greats are scared. That's why greatness attracts greatness...and repels what is not. Holla if ya HEAR me!!!

SO YUUUUP!!! EYE'M A SNOB! AND EYE WANNA BE WHERE THE TRULY GREAT FOLKS GOT "EARNED SWAGGER" AND SAY "BRING IT"....cuz they are, no doubt, "snobs" and "elitest" TOO. Whatever they are, THOSE are MY people!! FOUND YA! Or maybe YOU found ME. Either way, WE FOUND WE!! RIGHT ON TIME!! 

Thanks Mercury in Retrograde. Thanks Jimi Hendrix. THANKS Gil Scott Heron. The trinity in the lesson AND the blessing. Accepting myself...and being GOoD with it!!

Now....it's time to do some "showing off" without regret or apologies!! WELCOME TO THE WORLD OF IMANI! You might not really KNOW her. But you WILL! Oh EYE promise...YOU WILL! 

And the military brat just said, "KABOOOOOM!!!!!"

Watching the Jimi Hendrix documentary...and reflecting on a convo with some of my peers earlier...and wondering WHY is it when YOU are the imaginative, creative, shining one who actually wants EVERYONE to shine WITH you, you ALWAYS have to go OUTSIDE of your "community" because your community doesn't want YOU to "outshine" THEM...and "they" REFUSE to shine above the "status quo." Sooo, you ALWAYS have to go OUTSIDE of your own community to grow and shine and find others who genuinely embrace YOUR shine and want to see more.

Where you SHOULD be free is where you feel the most imprisoned and drained. And where they don't initially know your name is where you'll ALWAYS find your freedom to do YOU and build your fame.

Does that EVER change?! At least 100 years and more says....it doesn't. And that's so sad on so many levels. Took me a loooong time to finally come to grips with that reality. Mercury in Retrograde reflection of undeniable truth and proof. The more you know....seems to always be your downfall in traps of the jealous, blind and insecure sheeple. No wonder....

No wonder..... #doubleentendreintended

EYE'm too busy and focus-minded to be hanging "just to be hanging and be seen." When you see ME, it's with a purpose. EYE socialize and network where EYE feel it will actually be WORTH my time. Business over BS. Reciprocity over Ratchedness. Productivity over Promises that NEVER happen. "Think Tank" over just "Turnt Up." Don't get me wrong. EYE still party! But if EYE came around you 100 times supporting and got NOTHING from it but a shot liver pouring down shots to dull the boredom, lack of reciprocity and the fact there was NOTHING there for ME, it doesn't take 101 times to realize "your surroundings" is NOT where EYE need to be.

IJS...NOT on the clock for YOUR "grind." Just keeping it business and 100!!  ;-)  Not rocket science, yo!! ‪#‎basicmath‬

No two windows have the same exact view. Just like no two windows of opportunity are the same. Don't miss YOUR window of opportunity trying to drag someone whose time is not now. Your window of opportunity is YOUR window of opportunity. And your view is YOUR view. Enjoy it. That shine is for YOU.

THE REVELATION...AND WHEN LESSONS BECOME BLESSINGS

People's denial of their lack of reciprocity and/or lack of respect regarding me has ceased to be a problem....for ME. This past "season" grew me UP out of the mud and muck and forced me to see everything EYE needed to see. Needed to see who was for ME....and who just wanted me for THEM. Who was in it for the long haul? And who was just a short "whim?" Crazy and selfish can't or WON'T always recognize crazy and selfish within. But REAL friends never pretend. Their "consistency" is what makes them REAL friends.

Everything else...strictly busine$$. And trust, it really IS "all GOoD"...as all lessons ARE. ;-)  

Again...YOUR window of opportunity is what you should be looking at. Never miss YOURS focused on someone else's. Staying focusing on MINE. MY path. MY grind. MORE smiles...MORE shine. The more you know.....

Proved, Proven, Proving.

Behold the face of Rheumatoid Arthritis...IBS...Fibromyalgia... Costochondritis... Angina...Chronic Fatigue...Menopause (now THAT is probably the BIGGEST mothafucka of 'em ALL)...Depression (check that...THAT is the BIGGEST MUTHAFUCKA OF 'EM ALL)...and VICTORY. Thru the pain...thru the rain...thru being used and abused, imitated and hated, leeched and betrayed, ONLY child who saw both her loving Parents go to their graves, a widow who watched her husband die, murdered almost in front of her face...and jealous folks who don't want ME to tell MY story because they feel none of this matters anyway. Well...it DOES. To ME...and those who are LIKE me who need to SEE and hear THEY are not alone.

The seed of 2 soldiers who walks alone with no fear and dropping my seeds and stories to those with wanting and appreciative ears. Cains can't stop the talking of who and what the MOST HIGH wants to keep walking. WE ARE THE TRULY CHOSEN...because we walk thru the valley of shadow of death and call upon light and the life from which WE came from. And THAT is why the devils whisper in secret...and when they SEE you they run! Proved...Proven...and Proving. Keep watching. More to come. NOW it's MY time for Sunshine and fun. ;-)

P.S. If you're on everybody else's team, WHO is on YOURS?! And the moral of the story is: ALWAYS look out for the No.1 player in YOUR life. ‪#‎TEAMVAL‬

Sooo...had to put on my glasses so some of you could SEE what EYE'm saying.  On the term "support."  It's clearly means something different and less "substantial" and meaningful today.  It used to mean...SUPPORT...as in to help build, help lift, help grow together.

These days it seems to merely mean:  "Help me make MY shit hot...MY product hot...MY spot hot...MY act hot.  Fill MY pocket up...and invest in ME more that I will ever invest in myself.  And since I don't really do what I need to do to invest in MYSELF and expect YOU to cover all that, you should know from jump that I will NEVER invest in YOU...because I don't even invest in ME like that.  But we still FAM, right?!  And fam suppose to always carry fam....even when the fam won't carry you back."

OKAY, LIKE WUT?!  As in WHAT UNGODLY TRICK of the mind is THIS?!  THAT is NOT "real" business and NOT how you build professional business relations with others!

Trust me.  EYE have proven the theory AND the definition as it flows out some people's mouths but it NEVER shows in their actions.  So, THAT "re-defined" definition was for all who may not understand the NEW meaning of "support" today. And from that, you can clearly see the difference between those who were raised on REAL milk and those who were raised on similac.  No taste or integrity for standards.

And the moral of the story is:  First and foremost, SUPPORT YOURSELF...and NEVER get distracted from THAT!  The first foundation you should EVER and ALWAYS build is your own!  And that's something you'll ALWAYS be able to take to the bank....unlike those BS checks of insufficient funds from all those crumbs operating on the "new" meaning of support.  For those who didn't know, lip service pays NO bills!  REAL talk!

THAT is why EYE only deal with those who KNOW and show they know the original meaning....cuz EYE never developed a taste for similac.  Not served in MY V.I.P.  (double entendre intended)

Pass the wisdom on...because SOMEONE right now is needing to READ this.  ;-)

The irony...and joy... of the lesson AND blessing is to see people profiting from doors and paths EYE first opened and already crossed. Been there; done that; came back....and that's where ANOTHER journey took place...with a few "speed bumps" along the way. Folks who jump on your back and spring forward without a thank you. Folks who jump on your back...and use you as a spring to jump in front of you, feigning YOUR gift and pushing YOUR ideas to someone as if it was theirs to start with. Folks who jump on your back with agendas...agendas that ONLY help their always "self-serving/insecure" sub-behaviors. Folks who don't really know what the word "support" means. If you NEVER done it, it's like explaining the color fuchsia to a blind man. Gotta KNOW to show...and vice versa.

But TRUE pioneers ultimately find out TWO things: the importance of not squandering fertile seeds...and the barren fields which not to plant. EYE had to travel those "barren fields" a couple of trips around...because sometimes "soft hearts" can't believe what's really going down. EVERYBODY says they "want" it. But EVERYBODY doesn't deserve it...nor can't DO it. And if YOU can, don't shear off a piece of YOUR wood on YOUR floating ship to help someone who's sinking. There might be a reason WHY they are sinking that has EVERYTHING to do with THEM...and NOTHING to do with YOU. Keep sailing ON, Noah! It's not like you didn't tell 'em to get their "water wings" ready. Seed planted; job done!

The moral of this story is: "Learned lessons" will help a "fallen souljah" get OFF of the ground. And once learned, WE don't make the same mistakes twice. "You're welcome" to those who never did and never will know how to say "thank you." EYE no longer wait for reciprocity that's not of YOUR nature and just keep it moving to those who "get it"...and GET IT.

NOW...it's time (or maybe it was ALWAYS time) to walk THIS path for ME. NO distractions. NO speed bumps. NO side trips that are NO gain for ME. Lessons learned and being shades of my Mother, more so than my Daddy. Evolution time...and time for a CHANGE. Not just the talk; but the walk as well. And if it doesn't make ME smile, it and YOU just ain't my style...YOU can go to...wherever you go. Not my concern and in my rear view only. ;-)

Allow me to "introduce" myself. Hmmmm....well, just keep watching. You'll see. Imitated but NEVER duplicated....and always original. Who ELSE would EYE be?!
