I Fast in Silence


 I've decided to fast for two weeks to become aware of the material word, desire, and to understand and experience suffering. This all came to me in a spiritual dream. I've never been on a fast before and really had no clue of what it detailed. After completing two intense days of the  lemonade detox (water, lemons, cayenne pepper, maple syrup)  I soon realized I am on medication and needed something heavier in my stomach in order for me to take my meds.  On the third day I made a smoothie with just organic fruits, flax, and combined it with the lemonade detox recipe for breakfast and lunch. For dinner I will continue with the lemonade detox. I guess you can say I'm on a raw food fast. We must remember that fasting is not a diet plan or self punishment. Jesus fasted for 40 days. Fasting is between you and God. 

In doing research just last night I stumbled across some of Gandhi's quotes: 

-Fasting is for self-purification.

-A complete fast is a complete and literal denial of self. It is the truest prayer.

-A genuine fast cleanses the body, mind and soul. It crucifies the flesh and to that extent sets the soul free.

-What the eyes are for the outer world, fasts are for the inner.

-Whenever there is distress which one cannot remove one must fast and pray.

This is is the beginning of the end. Stay tuned!

I'm addicted to coping strategies!!

Has anyone ever told you that they used to be "in the world" but all of a sudden out of some circumstance or situation have decided they are too God-like to participate? Well, reality is that we must all live in this world. Call it spirit, God, Jesus, Buddha, consciousness, the universe or nothing at all - it was all created for you, in you. Life and the world we live in is beautiful. Look at all the wonders of nature. The difference is knowing what you are here to do. We can feed our fears with fear or we can conquer our fears by turning inside ourselves for real answers. People confuse superficial actions with the real thing constantly, and so they will forever remain zombies. I believe in God, I believe in science, I believe in evolution. I am open to everything and attached to nothing. This is the mystery of life and I humble myself to the all and everything.

Your DNA and your life journey was specifically chiseled out for you. Stop looking at the next persons imperfec…

Greetings,
I am floating, flying, sailing into darkness, uncertainty and faith. It's been an interesting year so far. I feel myself evolving while unraveling. With the death of my grandmother and my beloved friend just a few months apart, I feel the ancestors tugging at me like never before.
My production company is providing a service in order to fund our film production about the African Diaspora called DiSpell. I would like to thank all of you who have donated at our fundraisers. We continue to stay passionate about traveling along the Caribbean coast and archiving stories. The goal is to fly to Afro Caribbean Costa Rica and travel by land back to the United States maintaining and documenting stories of our ancestors. We are the historians that must keep our own stories alive. It is important to instill strength, courage and holistic health practices in our POC communities. I am a holistic health advocate and I want to remind you of who you are. As storytellers and multimedia …

Memorial Weekend at Val Verde, Ca

One of the best things happened to me! I was able to fullfill a bucket list dream which was to put on a community Music and Cultural Festival. Although there is room for improvement I can honestly say it was the best decision I have made this year. It takes support of family and friends to keep me motivated and pushing towards my goals and vision.
I am grateful. There will be more festivals curated by me in the on going years. The world is as good as you make it. Stay focused, stay positive and set your intention.

Please do yourself a favor and research the historic relevance of "Black Palm Springs" in the 1920's during Jim Crow.

This annual festival is not just about having a good time it's about historical awareness in underserved communities.

Come out next year for free camping, free swimming, yoga, live music and community!
