Weary Wanderer.

Life is a journey and on that journey, there are those who just wander around.

Individuals  who just go through the motions, through the cycles of life, without asking questions about life in itself. They seem to see no purpose in life beyond enduring the day to day living. Just getting at the slightest chance life gives.

To them things just happenned , no clue, no plan, no enthusiam, Nothing!

Trust me, I was once like that, clueless about why I am here, no excited about anything, because there was nothing to be excited about. (So I thought)!

Until I got to the point where I became dissatisfied about everything around me, and within me.There must be more to this Life!

I remember this old hymnal from back in the days whose first line goes like this; “weary wanderer, stop and listen!, I can’t remember the other part of the Hymn, but this first line as remained with me for as long as I can remember.

As I began to listen more, I found out , and I am still discovering  that I am made of more, in service to God and fellow Human beings, I am beginning to give full expressions to the “more’ that has been inputed in my DNA even before time began.

I began to embrace and love life more, and to be thankful and grateful for each passing moment for it a rare gift. Maintaining a positive attitude in the face of confronting low self esteem,and lack of confidence is not an easy task.  The story’s changed from ” once-upon-a-time-weary-wanderer ‘ to a vibrant ,confident ,Godchaser in pursuit-of-purpose.

To apprehend all that for which God through Christ apprehended me.

Per adventure, there is a weary wanderer, just like I used to be, reading this right now,the voice of your creator is calling on you to stop! and listen to the plans and purpose He has for you. Jer 29:11.

Maybe you know someone, in this state, Kindly love on them, show them through your acts that in deed life is beautiful,contrary to what he/she may be going through.

Let them know that they are never alone, or forsaken in this journey,show them in love that , they have a great life ahead, so they should not settle down with “going through the motion”.

Weary Wanderer stop and listen , God’s voice is calling you to reason, to life, to purpose.

Shalom,

Loving others is the only way to fully live the God kind of life.

As we love and show love to others by our words and action, we join forces with our Heavenly Father to make His intents a reality in the earth realm.

Let the ZOE of God flow through you today,as you meet the needs of others with that gentle touch, a smile at a stranger, a wink.

Go the extra mile with a kind word, a kind act, be an extension of  God’s life  Today!

Let this mind be in you as it was in Christ Jesus!

Have a wonderful Wednesday.

Open.

With open arms

I welcome a new dawn

As the father of life 

Came knocking on my heart’s door.

It’s a brand new day

My mind is open wide

For the inflow of new opportunities

I am ready for love

So my being is open and alive

For the warm embrace of nature’s best gift-

Divinity expressed through Humanity

Christ’s love and life.

I open myself up

To be an extension of that sweet love today

My classroom door is ajar

Let the teachers come in 

This student is opened to new lessons

As the elements open themselves 

of the treasuries embedded.

My hands are open to receive

My heart is open to give

My mind ready to perceive.

To you Lord I open my life.

I’m possible!

 I believe  in the authenticity of my femininity

I believe in the fragility of my heart 

Therein lies my strength

For when I’m weak

Then I am strong

I believe in the truth of my voice

For when I speak my heart is revealed

I believe in the potency of the powers

Lurked within me

My feistiness and fierceness

My gentleness and brokenness

The audacity to view life and Interpret it

In my own way

Writing my own story

On my own page

That the  reader

May find succor in my story

To be their real authentic self

*************

I am a working progress

I am a work-in-progress

I am a book packaged by the Author

Every line a new discovery

Every chapter, a revelation

Of God’s expertise

I am deep,mysterious

mischievously righteous

In the eye of the righteous teacher!

Don’t write me off yet

In fact, you can’t write me off

My pen is in God’s hand

He does the writing

I am a continuous story of

I’m possible

*********

This is my becoming

It is not  yet over

I’m possible in the meantime of 

My life’s journey

Taking advantage of the downtime and preparation

Because the celebration of my highlight reels is

Is within my uptime and downtime 

In this space and time

On this side of eternity present

I’m possible

To them that believe

All things are possible

I am POSSIBLE.

 

 

This poem was inspired by my friend who will be celebrating her 45th birthday  in a few days with theme: I’m possible.

3 Questions To Consider in Finding Purpose

When we live a life that ‘s rich in purpose. Every action feels right, every intention feels true. Every time we love what we do and do what we love, its leaves with such feeling that is as deep as the oceans.

But how we get there?

Purpose is a three-dimensional phenomenon which embraces the following:

Who you are?

What is needed in your world?

What moves you?- which is often called Passion?

A purpose is the cultivation of our natural faculties to their highest degree. Having said that, then what we need to consider in the pursuit of purpose  is

Can you be (among) the best at what you do? Being the best at what you do is not equivalent to making money. In other words, it is not about ,I can be the best at something so that I can make lots of money. Money is a nice side effect of purpose, but it is not the cause of Purpose.

To be the best at something means we have fully mastered  a discipline, an art or science especially one that we are naturally disposed to. That gives a sense of mastery!

Which of your “bests” benefits others? we all might have more than one talent or abilities. The specifics don’t really matter. We all agree that no all of these talents will benefit others. The second greatest question of purpose  now is which ones are going to be of great benefit to people.

It is not about the greatest good for the greatest number. The purpose is not about crowd pleasing. Purpose is not what pleases people , but it about what challenges, or provokes or propel or even defies others and that’s how they benefit from it-Purpose

I mean no one find a purpose by making crowd-pleasing stuff, do they? Let’s ask the Steve Jobs ,they were not on purpose to please the world-Their mission was to change the world in the best way they possibly can.

It is isn’t about being all things to all men because that right there is a purpose -killer. So ‘does it really benefit people” is not about placating or satisfying them, but it about expanding the people to the very highest degree- Even if it a few people,such that they feel much more alive as a result of what we do.

The third question to consider with respect to finding our purpose is Does it move you? It’s rather unfortunate to find many of doing things, working jobs that don’t move us in the slightest bit! In answering this question we have to be ruthless and honest with ourselves. Forgetting what parents, friends, spouse thinks  you should be doing.

It is about looking for themes and pointers of life, and that is an individual thing. What moves is not a question of fads and trends,because the truth of the matter is that trends and fads come and go. what moves you shouldn’t be a fling but something that lasts a lifetime.

What really moves me? when we ask this question we ate ready to go deeper into ourselves, searching for depth, looking for themes and point of life,not style and expressions of the moment.

Be honest with yourself, maybe you come from a line of Doctors or Engineers,but when you come across cutting edge designs or art, or you hear a music, there is a gush of electric that runs through your veins, your heart palpitates,your eyes go wide,you are like, ‘now that’s what I’m talking about”. That’s the sense you’re looking for,and we all feel it over and over in our lifetime. It is finding the courage to hold on to it that is needed now.

The truth is when we are honest in answering these questions or the other variants, Purpose finds us! The purpose will find you when you know who you are, what the world around you need,and what moves you.

When that happens,the seed is already  sowed, what is needed is watering the soil on a constant basis for the Purpose to manifest!

Again! I Choose You.

I seat in the bathroom, one of my favorite space to get out of my skin and be in sync with me.

There I sat and  I looked straight in the mirror.

There you are once again with that beautiful smile.

Did I ever tell you that your smile brightens me?

I look into the mirror and right into your eyes

Your dark brown eyes tell me the stories of your life

They shine through the experiences you’ve had

Your eyes tell me there are more adventure and conquests ahead.

So once again I choose you, to continue the adventure

You are my heart and my strength

You represent my vision

You arrange direct and orchestrate my songs

You are  an embodiment of my thoughts

You are my language , well articulated with clarity

You walk my walk, talk my talk

You do my dance, and how I love our dance.

You tell my truth

You tell my stories on a daily basis

Through the fears and many doubts

The anxieties and uncertainties of life

You remind me of who  I am

And what I am here for

You call me fearless

The Nubian  with a fearless heart

Even in my fearfulness

You remind me of me!

Thank you for being me!

Again, and again, I choose YOU.

Look, Listen, Learn.

Look within, you just might find beauty lies beneath.

Look without, all around something profound that lightens you up

Look above-You’re not alone

Surrounded by a great cloud of witness gone ahead

Cheering you on.

Look up, lift your eyes

To the pinnacle of life

The Origin of existence

Look to God…….Always!

Look down,you will find great treasures

Buried in the dusty horizon of Mother earth

Look down,but never on others

For we are all God’s children….Afterall.

*********

Listen, Listen,pay close attention

To the voice, that whispers life

Listen to that still small voice

He speaks constantly, amidst the overwhelming noise.

Listen to your heart, listen to your head

Both can’t be wrong all of the times.

Listen to the voice that cheers you to be better,

Do better,live better, love better

Listen to the voice of the little baby

The  rhythm and blues from a baby’s heart.

Listen to everything

While you’re listening to listen

Listen and shut out every contrary voice

Speaking against your wellbeing

Spirit, soul and bodily.

Listen to God, listen to your loved ones

Listen to great music, Listen to teachers

Weary wanderer, stop  and listen!

********

You just might learn a thing or two

Learn to unlearn the things you thought was right.

Learn, unlearn  and relearn

I think that’s what it’s all about

Life is a great school

You never stop learning.

As you continue to live life

Look before you leap

Listen carefully

Learn what you unlearn and re…..Learn!

ThIs iS My LiFe!

After a very long time of living life through the eyes of others. Enough is enough!

I’ve got only a lifetime to live it .I might as well brace up and live it to the full. It is not too late to take charge right?

I am a woman,wife and mother,but I know there is more to me. I am adventurous,fiesty go-getter,I better go get my life.

I may not be able to get a plane ticket and fly to Dubai right now, I might as well hit the road and go watch the Argungu festival up North.

Argungu festival in Sokoto,Nigeria.

Argungu festival in Sokoto,Nigeria.

I may not yet  gain access to the platform at the North Sea Jazz@Rotterdam-This is one of my dream as a neosoul musician :-),I might as well find my way to the Calabar Jazz Festival.

Dream will become reality someday! :-)

Dream will become reality someday! 🙂

Stop telling me,I can’t be all this and all that.You know I stopped to look at the mirror lately,guess who I saw. I saw me,I didn’t see my significant other half,I saw me. I didn’t see my Children,I saw me!!

I saw only me,standing in front of the mirror.From here on,I am going to live my life because it is “golden”.  I will live this beautiful life of mine consciously,intentionally and purposefully. I will make my mistakes,and move on,I will run through troops and celebrate my victories great and small.

I will live this life  for me,I will savour each moment and cherish the memories,but I will never let you live it for me. I will no longer live it for you.  This is my LIFE!

          “This is my life…..my story…my book.I will no longer let anyone else write it,nor will I apologise for the edits I make-Steve Maraboli. @SteveMaraboli.
