How To Be Content

The term spiritual or religious is subjective and objective based on your upbringing. We can never assume or judge people on how much they know or don't know. Peace is the freedom to let others experience their own reality. The illusion that we have internalized is separation, judgement, fear, competition and hierarchy.We have to stop clinging to false identity and belief systems. On my journey I have realized one of the most profound things we can do for another human being is give eye contact and a smile. A human connection is what will make a difference through longevity.

Life is a constant balancing act and it is important that we embrace the darkest corners of our mind. This is where survival, awareness and alertness meet us. We must be accountable of how we live our lives. Do you ever get sad because you constantly have this unsettling, discontent feeling? It reminds me of that commercial with the childrens control group.. "We want more, we want more!" I wonder if I am the only person who feels there is something wrong with me because I am constantly striving to challenge myself to the next level.

What I have learned is that yearning is our natural creativity. Exploration is infinite. Growth is limitless. It's our universal "Christ" nature. We have everything we need within ourselves and somehow our human consciousness has forgotten. Being fulfilled is a memory that has been engraved into our psyche because we have experienced it already. It may be fragmented but it was always there. It is a feeling that we have already experienced. You can't crave something you never had.

The confusion is our human consciousness playing tricks on us, telling us what we are searching for is outside of ourselves. We live in a world of consumption. We are brainwashed to think worldly expectations is what dictates how "good enough" we really are. We then begin to validate ourselves with temporary ego driven band aids. Be aware of what you are striving for in life.

When we pray to change someone or something we are taking away from someones freedom of choice. Prayer should never be used to tell God what to do. God or the universe (whatever you want to call it) already knows what is happening. Pray for God to do his will. Be thankful and grateful for being alive. Pray for the strength to continuously forgive yourself and others for not being perfect. We can not pray to change someone or something because there is a plan for everyone and we can't get in the way of what God is trying to do. God will do his will anyway.

Thanks for reading!

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…

The Shift

#urbansoulfarmer grew out of a need to learn my culture and tradition through the migration of medicinal plants and spices. Urban Soul Farmer is also a platform that synthesizes wellness, art and nature. The aim is to sow seeds of wisdom about our past, present and future. Study, research, certifications, observation, workshops, community, interviews, and travel are all part of my process to create an experimental multimedia narrative about my ancestors.

I am continuing as Blaqnomadtales to archive stories of healers, counselors, and underground artists of the African Diaspora. Our stories need to be told by us and preserved by us. The time is now. Stay tuned 2017

I would like to thank Rock Rose a Gallery for donating a garden plot to urban soul farmer. I will be hosting classes every two weeks for demonstrations, hands on projects and community building. As part of  an "art and nature" series, I have been chosen to organize and develop urban gardening workshops including a…

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 …
