“To Be Or Not To Be”…That Seems To Be The Burning Question

When I look out my window into the cold grey sky of winter it used to depress me. Now I see the beauty in the silence of the sleepiness of Winter. Each day we as Humans struggle to “Be or Not to Be” greater or stronger or better than we are the day before.

“You may not control all the events that happen to you, but you can decide not to be reduced by them.” — Maya Angelou

When you feel yourself being torn between two or three worlds of what to do in your mind or soul (which paths to go in life) then this is when God is shaking you and telling you to sit down and think and see which way you want to go.

You see, in everything in life we are given choices. We are given the choice to do go on a good path or a bad path with every choice we make. Sometimes we jump into choices when we are young because of ambition, greed, lust or simply youth. As we get older we seem to gain experience and knowledge in this area, if you live through your mistakes that is, and you receive wisdom as your reward. It would be beneath me to not share my wisdom with everyone.

I have 5 ‘Mantra’s I guess you could call them that I live by. I’d like to share them with you as they have helped me heal and I now teach them in my studies.

  1. Family/Familia is forever, friends come and go.
  2. Love will hurt, but the heart can heal.
  3. Pain is temporary, but it lets you know you’re still alive.
  4. The Power of the Mind is a wonderful thing and no Doctor can put a measurement on that.
  5. Your time hear on Earth is a ‘blip’ compared to the span of time that has occurred and will occur in history so do NOT waste any precious second of it.

These are not conventional practices you might say, no. Why? Because today’s medicine is now focusing on Holistic Medicine and Whole Body Health and going forward with our Organization, Nomoretears21:4 Nonprofit, and Dr. Winold “Renee” Brown and myself working together with our team we plan on building an outreach program for our survivors that can focus on this subject an it will be fully sustainable within 2 years! We are so excited with the progress. Of course as more investors come forward our progress will improve quicker for our young men, but alas, the fight against Human Trafficking and Sexual Exploitation in this country (USA) is a hard one. And unfortunately we will always have bad actors out there that give honest, hard working organizations like ours a rough go at this advocacy push!

I hope some of this helps you find peace and I hope this brings you hope. For that is all I wish for anyone who reads this. Thank you.
