Ever wonder?

So I’m writing something in between poetry and prose. Something that somewhat expresses the innermost, yet conservative side of the writer, perhaps the blogger I am becoming with each typed letter.

Better is the end than the beginning, many say, maybe all agree. But what if nothings thwarts an end worse than its beginning? Ever wonder?

Letters revive souls than unspoken words, many believe, maybe you agree. But what if the unspoken hugs looks, smile or touches can be the resurrection divide between you and her? Ever wonder?

Naming is so much so that what we call whatever per time is what they become with time. What if names and time could be dimensions of our worlds? Ever wonder?

Aiming at heights in our daily lives keep us motivated and seems to give us a sense of we living for something. What if it’s all about looking at the height we currently at and seeking to simply love people and happiness from within? Ever wonder?

Wonder why you see things the way you see them?

Ponder on beliefs you have imbibed and soon you will entrain the fast-standing truths very deeply as they almost never fail their tests…

Ever wonder?

Imagine

Imagine you had the very things you keep imagining

Do you imagine the fulfillment as well?

Do you imagine the peace that comes or leaves as a result?

Do you imagine the feelings that rush after as well?

So I have imagined a lot of things and only the ones with feelings induced somehow get materialised

What if the imagination is only one dimension? You’ve only just drawn a lineimagine

Then the feelings in the second dimension? Now you beginning to give things length. This can of course can be positive or negative or expressed in different forms.

And the work you begin to do is the third dimension? Such that you simply have given your imaginations depth

 

What if this is the true definition of creation?

Think about any creation, whether Divine or man-made, that has not gone through these steps of dimensional substantiation.

When will you begin your imagination, feeling and workings?

From this part of the world,

Your blogger friend,

When you begin to see further (2)

This is a sequel to When you begin to see further… and the interesting thing is this was inspired by a very deep conversation with a very good person of mine. Sometimes, we think inspirations or counsels are simply for one person, well, it could sometimes be. I hope this is for you, especially you.you.png

So remember the Joseph guy we were talking about previously? There’s an almost assured need for you to read Genesis 42 again if you have before and read with an open mind this time. Some new piece of information might jump at you. I mean literally jump at you (smiles). The need for this is for you especially to understand the place we’re coming from for this story to make the most sense.

So here is it after you have read both part 1 of this blog and Genesis 42:

Joseph on sale
And that’s someone’s dream looking exactly opposite

Something happened to the guy that was being sold, whose death was deliberated, whose ears were open while his brothers deliberated his death, whose eyes were wide open while he was thrown in the pit and for whom about 40 shekels were exchanged for his life and no real way or present outlook as at then of getting any of his “awesome” dreams come through. His past was fast becoming not the favorite child of his father, but soon to be chief slave , ex-convict and maybe most hated of his brethren. There was no actual reason to hate him, but they just did. Of course, sometimes, you wonder why love is not returned to you. This Joseph guy was the one who brought them food in the wild where they were pasturing, but he still wasn’t good enough. In fact, if you’re looking for the most positive attitude, you probably have found one in Joseph. So see some drift…

Joseph_Governor
Imagine this were Joseph and now governor, probably it will help you imagine your dream too, even though not clear or direct now

Truthfully, it is also unheard for a prisoner or slave to be the second highest in Egypt, this was the world’s center of civilization and charisma. But when God who gives dreams decide to take your past and make your dreams what it really is, age, past and gender or ethnic placement or even societal dysfunctional hierarchy or class will suddenly mean nothing and that’s all that’s going to matter.

So why do I feel very strongly in my spirit to share this with you? Well, you have a dream just like I do! That dream can even seem almost marred by past mistakes. You may want to ask Abram (or Abraham now) or Jacob (yeah, he’s now known as Israel) or even Apostle Saul, sorry, I mean Paul and how God will do anything to make wise the foolish things of this world to confound the wise. So as I was saying, you do have a dream and the giver and maker of dreams knows best, dreams don’t have to be lost or forgotten. Stay in line and simply trust my dear. God has got your back. Stay in touch… and don’t you dare leave without either sharing this to another “you”, or dropping a comment or even pressing a like button. You know these things kind of have a way of making me- your pen-friend happy too, so let’s be happy together.

Hear from me later…

Your blog-friend,

Wonuola (winks).

Rethinking your Plans

It can be very tempting to hold on to old plans and think of it as having “great resolve”. However, there are times when you simply are better off shedding off those old no-going-forward plans, restructure them and think of the end in view. What exactly was I trying to achieve in the first place? What value drove me in making the initial plan? How can I improve quickly on the intricate parts and make a better informed pathway to fulfilment? A roof, an antique or a home?PLAN A_B

Here are some few tips I found extremely useful. I hope you do too…

  1. Stop deceiving yourself: I am sure you’re wondering how possible it is to look or steer deeply into your own soul and tell a lie inconsistent with your nature. How is that even sensible? Right? Well, let me tell you an example of a blatant lie you can tell to yourself. “This is just who I am”- Big LIE! When did you become that? How did you become “I AM” that you simply cannot make any improvement? Anyways, start from there and see how that affects your life plans or even small day-to-day executions.
    4405-big-little-lies-s1e05-once-bitten-promo
    LIES we tell ourselves
  2. Give in not give up: This one is a bit tricky. The reason is this; there is a very fine line, in fact, almost none between compromise and giving in. Sometimes, however, to make a clearer difference that would suit the line of our discussion on rethinking your plans, we’ll take it that giving in is looking out to a bigger reward by letting go of “something less” while compromise is essentially letting go something grand in return for instant gratification or less reward. Now that we have sorted the difference, you can easily see why giving up your plans entirely is even way more awkward than giving in certain weak areas of your plan in search for a bigger purpose. An example of giving in would be the classic Kung Fu Panda “running away” to his father to learn how to master his chi during a time of war back “home” to found a way to conquer his most powerful foe. That is giving in for good. Not giving up and imagine he ran away to hide and not do anything. Anyway, I am sure you get the point already.never_give_up_quotes
  3. Steer your plan in the course of destination: There are map-use lessons you might find useful. But that’s not the point here, it is about claiming your right as captain and owner of your own life plan. No one else can help steer it. Simple! You own it! You know the destination! So why entrust your plan to someone else thinking they would love it so much and help you with figuring how to get anywhere close to “Canaan”? Well, it doesn’t work that way. Of course, counsels are very important and in fact, when godly and wise, they simply have helped me thus far and even rethinking and avoiding certain road-blocks I might have encountered if I went headlong without guidance. But the point remains that, regardless of how much intel you may require or backup service you get, you still have to own your plan because you are the CAPTAIN, full-stop!You-are-the-captain
  4. Know WHO is in charge: This last one is a bonus to those who care. It is about knowing who is truly in charge… Commit to the Lord whatever you do, and he will establish your plans. Proverbs 16:3  May he give you the desire of your heart and make all your plans succeed. Psalm 20:4 For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Jeremiah 29:1131128-Henry-Ford-Quote-With-God-in-charge-I-believe-everything-will-work.jpg

See you soon…

Yours faithfully,

You’re Happy, are they?

(Photo credit to Don Wind)
I’m sure you’re happy, but are they?

I don’t mean the less privileged 

Or the “lost” in this world who can’t find their way to their “source” (Talk for some other time)

Or the weighed-down and broken-hearted

No! I mean those you thought should be but who never really liked who you are

Yes! I said it.

They actually either like you for what you do or what you give or maybe like that you are against what they are against

Trust me, they are mostly great to have for your well-being

In fact, they are perfect to keep you on your toes.

But here lies the problem, if you mistake them for people who love you for who you are?

You are in deeper trouble than I anticipated

You expect them to be truly happy when you are happy

You lie. It’s not possible. Ask my friend, he told me of them too. 

They are sometimes seeking your next ditch. Not intentionally, but they think subconsciously you should fall soon because how can you have had it all figured out till now?

How should you have made it this far?

Won’t you fall anytime soon?

How can we actually be of help to this “have-it-all”?

They really don’t know your real story!

How can they?

They were not there when you fall, and try to walk again. 

They were not there when you even tried crawling and not sit in a place as expected.

They were not there when you bruised and hurt and even almost gave up!

They simply were not there!

So how do you expect them to be happy for you when you are now happy?

Are they your true family or friends?

Cos those are the only people I know will laugh when you do, cry when you cry, and be truly there for you.

Even though not always…

Let me surprise you a bit…

I know one friend, we met in 2007. I have probably been the worst friend to him but he just won’t leave me. He practically has kept all his promises. He is the only relationship I’ve kept so far that has taught me true love and helped sustained my other relationships. With family, people, work and even with my source. Some already know who I’m talking about. He took me off religion and traditional worship and taught me he has never come to judge me. People forget that and turn into my judges and accusers cos they only can be as their father the devil. I owe no one an apology today and this is it! His name is Jesus. Beautiful Jesus. He’s precisely the best that has ever happened to me. And for those yet to encounter him… My prayer is that you do and simply find one person who is really happy for you when you are truly happy.

These were a summary or rather excerpts from his words… (cannot afford to plagiarize my best friend and lover)

Very truly I tell you, we speak of what we know, and we testify to what we have seen, but still you people do not accept our testimony.  I have spoken to you of earthly things and you do not believe; how then will you believe if I speak of heavenly things?  No one has ever gone into heaven except the one who came from heaven—the Son of Man.  Just as Moses lifted up the snake in the wilderness, so the Son of Man must be lifted up,  that everyone who believes may have eternal life in him.”  For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him. Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe stands condemned already because they have not believed in the name of God’s one and only Son.

John 3:11‭-‬18 NIV

http://bible.com/111/jhn.3.11-18.NIV

Thank you dear reader and hope you can truly find happiness to be able to love people for who they are rather than for weird things and then be happy for them…

The elephant in the room

I don’t expect fair or most sophisticated answers. Just want to have something to gist about. You think I don’t feel that way sometimes? Trust me, I do. Just feel like telling you something random I’m pondering about. We might learn one or two things about sustaining human life, who knows?

after Annamarie Ibrahim

So there’s an elephant in the room. Who’s going to scare the elephant out or push it out of the room? Does it need to be pushed? What should be done? Laugh about how colourful it is? Or what?

Please send in your comments, would love to hear from you.
