They always say it's okay to break the rules if you first understand them. Then you know how to break them without breaking relationships. Your network is really your networth. That's the poetry that we've been told. Your circle is your gold but also the company you keep will be your downfall. How many people in your circle would really help you because some circles have internal unspoken competition with each other. They verbally support you & tell you how great you are until you need their help & they duck & dive. But ever seen how easily this very circle can help a stranger or someone else outside of the circle? That's because it seems more valuable to help those who don't necessarily seem to need us, for some reason that's more fulfilling than helping someone you've shared bread & tea with. So what does networking really mean if someone can leave a close circle & go help someone outside? It means whatever your purpose & dream is, the universe will surround you with people that can either enable it or challenge you into making it a reality. The inner circle that is not extending a helping hand is playing a role in your life plan too. That misplaced anger you carry towards them is only a reminder that you are all you need at that point & you shouldn't wait for anyone to affirm your next move. If it means call someone you don't personally know that you believe can help with the next step, do that. People will tell you that some people are too important to just call, but as long as you're respectful & clear with what you need from them, most people would take your call & help. It's all on you, find the person you believe is crucial for your next step, understand how they can help you & how you can help them then make that call. What's the worst that can happen? Manage your expectations & don't be too entitled to people's help. Always remember that your journey is yours alone & everyone else is busy in their own journey as well. But some paths cross over each other & require hands to connect for each to continue moving in their specific directions. So make that call, you're not harming anyone, but you may be killing your dream if you don't. #LiteWords #SteveJobs
What is the real meaning of forgiveness?⠀ ⠀ A white female officer got into the wrong apartment thinking she's home, saw a black man inside & shot him, killing him. (You know the politics of black men & white officers in the US). She was found guilty of murder & sentenced to a decade in jail.⠀ ⠀ Here is the deceased man's brother addressing the woman who killed his brother.⠀ ⠀ Forgiveness is misunderstood by both the people forgiving & most often by the people being forgiven. ⠀ The people being forgiven suddenly think your forgiveness means you're suddenly okay with their actions.⠀ ⠀ The people forgiving think they're idiots & this is why many take so long to forgive because they think upon them forgiving, they have removed the burden off of the person who did them wrong.⠀ ⠀ Forgiveness in it's essence does nothing for the person who has done you wrong, but till you forgive your life is on a pause, forgiving is pressing the play button so your life can go on. ⠀ ⠀ You do not forgive people FOR THEM, you forgive them, FOR YOURSELF. ⠀ ⠀ What they have done will live with them forever & they have messed up their own journey of life. ⠀ ⠀ Imagine life being a puzzle, the more you do people wrong is like messing up some of the puzzles of your own life, the eventual picture will never be complete no matter how many people forgive you. You have actually set yourself up for failure & it's only a matter of time before it comes back to you.⠀ ⠀ Think of forgiving as if someone broke into your home, when you don't forgive it's like you've now locked this person up inside with you instead of letting them out so the universe can deal with them. If the universe deals with them while they're in your presence there might be collateral damage. ⠀ ⠀ The hard truth is; whether you forgive them or not, their actions will never be reversed. It has happened & there's no turning back. ⠀ ⠀ Forgive people, you may never forget what they did to you but such is life, full of highs & lows that give us equilibrium. Embrace both.⠀ ⠀ Don't allow their actions to change who you are.⠀ ⠀ Let the universe deal with it's own children, at the end of the day we all get what we deserve. #LiteWords
Two things are main ingredients to anything magical, content & a story. ⠀⠀⠀⠀ It doesn't matter how high-end the infrastructure is, if the content is not worth anyone's time & there's no story to it it won't translate with people.⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ YOU have a story that is unique & that's what's different about you from everyone else. Take that story & drive your content from it & watch what happens. Authenti'city is where the heart lives. ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ The universe is always listening & it doesn't listen with ears, it listens with years. Put time into your passion, put passion into your time. Not everyone will get it but your belief in it should surpass any & every doubt you come across. ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ Once the universe gives you attention it won't matter who else is not listening. Don't take my word for it, I'm also on my own journey that's different from yours but do believe this, it's all up to you. ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ I always say that failure is impossible, you can't fail at something that lives in your heart. Whatever you do will be a success. When you doubt yourself & you don't achieve your dream, you've been successful at doubting yourself haven't you? So what's there to lose if you just believe in what lives within you?⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ There's a reason you think the way you do about the things you think about, there's a reason they chose your heart as a home, the universe plays #tag and guess what, you're IT!⠀⠀ It's your responsibility to bring what lives inside you to life, or die with it. Why do you think you're here? To cry & complain about how others aren't there for you? Are YOU there for you? What have you done for you lately? ⠀ ⠀ It's so easy to act like victims but we also treat ourselves unfairly. We are haters too. #LiteWords ⠀ ⠀⠀ PS: Lil Nas X paid $50 to record his record-breaking song that kicked off Mariah Carey & Justin Bieber's songs off the history charts. And he was subsequently kicked off by Lizzo, who gave up on music when her supportive dad died & stopped playing the flute in church. Until she decided to keep following her dreams because she had to stop living for her father, she had to live for herself. Your dreams must never be attached to someone else, your journey is yours alone_
It's often the easiest thing to remove 'toxic' people from our lives. When someone is rude, hates every progress you make or doesn't respect you, it's usually easier to let them go & move on with life. ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ The more complex issue is first recognizing from the people that do love you, who in the circle has the wrong energy for *you! People who love you *can still be bad *for you. ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ It's not their responsibility to let you go off into your lite, it's your job to surround yourself with people that not only help you move forward, but you reciprocate as well.⠀ ⠀ Learn to spot relationships where you're the star & where you're audience. Before you know it the show's over & you walk home. ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ Whenever we are warned about people in our lives that aren't good for us, we are quick to say 'but s/he is a good person'. Energy is not necessarily about love, energy is about vibe. It's about a chorus that sings for your progress. ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ Your own family, friends or fans can be bad for your growth. It's your task to not only remove them from your life, but to also remove yourself from theirs. ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ Sometimes it's about temporary isolation because for you to move to the next phase of your life, you need to lose the weight & burden. That may be the only way you can return to save them as well. ⠀⠀ Learn when to let go, be discerning in your movement for progress. It's not hate at all, it makes little sense at first but people always return to what's true. ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ Sometimes you need to be a certain person for some relationships in your life to work and to be that person you may need to cleave yourself away temporarily from certain energies. ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ Growth requires energy & if you kept the same people in your life in the same capacity throughout, that explains why you're where you are in your life. ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ It's societal emotional blackmail, but no one will free you from this prison, you gonna have to grow the hell up & pay your own bail. ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ Relationships that are genuine will survive this, but the ones that needed you to survive will perish as a sacrifice for your growth. ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ If you live for you first, your progress will last.You move faster without the dead weight. #LiteWords

What is enlitenment? Do you reach it or do you continuously work towards more of it? Here's the thing about understanding humans. In basic form, we are all the same. So the secret to understanding others is really to understand self. Forget different personalities, humans are born to love. We change when we come across other energies prematurely before we have comprehension of self. Enlitenment is a process you begin by looking inward instead of outward. Keep reaching deeper into you & you'll have an understanding of why you have certain outward needs & certain expectations from the world you live in. You'll understand why you allow others to disappoint you, why you let others make you feel small & all the other social ills. Once you begin to understand that in your world you're King, you start to recognize the same for the next person, they're also King in their own world. And Kings who respect their Kingdoms respect & love each other. That's the gold right there. Once your journey to move forward begins with looking inside you start to see that whatever you need in the world, you came into the world with it. We are all equipped to deal with life. Envy confused our position in the world. Humans created labels & levels but if you ignore these as your bible you start to worship what made you, YOU. You have no business or jurisdiction over anyone else's life choices. No one has any business over yours. The more you're at peace with self the easier to be at peace with others. The more you understand self the easier it is to understand others. You begin to see people's actions towards you differently because your point of departure is not emotional blackmail or always seeing yourself as victim of the actions of those who don't think you mean much. You then understand they think like that because they haven't gotten to understand how majestic they truly are as human beings, meaning how majestic YOU truly are as well. The secret is not to change anyone's mind about anything, the idea is to be one with what being a soul is & you start to treat firstly yourself as King & you then get to treat everyone else as King. Guard your energy & respect your space. #LiteWords
Silent Prayers. If you don't let the child in you die you live a life of eternal optimism.
Silent Prayers. Children pray from a place of purity, a place of no prejudice or contradiction.
Silent Prayers. When you need something from the Father you send His favourites to ask, the children.
One constant thread about life is this, your journey is yours alone. Sometimes our paths cross with others & we can make the mistake of either changing lanes & going with them or thinking they hold the key to our destiny. But we forget they're also in their own journey. When the gun shoots in a 100m sprint, you either run or you can forget about it. There is no room for hesitation. So you either go for what you believe in or you forget about it. Just because something lives in your heart & you're passionate about it, doesn't mean that's going to be the easiest thing for you. Often it is the more meaningful that is the more challenging. But you keep on keeping on. Remember, the important part is deciding the path, the rest of the challenge is staying the course no matter what. You're already successful if you stay true to your calling, whether you arrive or not makes little difference. That's for the audience. Your only obligation in any lifetime is to be true to yourself. There are challenges either way, whether you're following your heart or not but what good is a challenge when you're not doing what gives you freedom? And what value is reaching the summit of a mountain if it doesn't get you to your sky? We think life is a maze that we have to outsmart. Life is as simple as a summer's day, you just find your sun & busk. Sing your song & let your purpose be your melody. The hardest way to go through life is often the most difficult, the easiest way is appreciating that you're meant to attain your own freedom just as much as the next guy. And at no point do the two clash. Envy is confusion, keep your eye on your prize & remember you're your very own competition. If you failed today, life is generous enough to end the day in 24 hours so that you can start again, and again. Don't dwell on failure, use it to start from experience. But by God please, keep on keeping on. #LiteWords
Life is a series of perspective & you choose your reality. What you give energy to lives & what you starve dies. You spend hours in traffic to arrive to an office with people that may not be vibing on your energy, expected to be creative & productive with challenging obstacles then return home to now have to look after hungry mouths & ungrateful attitudes. That's one way to look at it.⠀ ⠀ You could also see a blessing of transportation. You could also see an opportunity of work. You could also see souls that need redemption & a blessing of family. Everything has multi dimensions. You see it with the eye of your soul. ⠀ ⠀ The more enlightened the soul, the more opportunity you see instead of obstacles. An enlightened mind never settles so it's never looking for perfection. Seek opportunity to live through the ups & downs of life. Give value to everything that challenges you because that gives your life character. ⠀ ⠀ Things are difficult because your mind hasn't found an opportunity to thrive. ⠀ ⠀ We think we want things to be easy, but what we actually need is a feeling of ecstasy that comes when we solve complex life issues. So don't be intimidated by a challenge just because you haven't gone deep enough into you, to find it's solution. ⠀ ⠀ See everything as a chance to love just one more time & always one more time. There are no problems & solutions, those are just words. What we have are opportunities to either live or die. Everyday & every moment you either live or die & the value of your life will be weighed on how quickly you move across these two. ⠀ Life is a puzzle & whether you toss the pieces up in the air or not, you can only see the intended full picture once the pieces fall where they should. So the quicker you start figuring that out, the quicker you can see the picture. ⠀ ⠀ For example, you are either seeing daily commute in this video but as soon as you flip the phone you see the beauty of life. ⠀ ⠀ Same moment, just seen differently. #LiteWords
Your life is always in conversation with you, we do hear but we don't always listen. It's important to acknowledge & appreciate that we are where we are because of how we have communicated with self. Accepting this gives you enlitenment, it reaffirms & reminds you that in order to be where we wish to be, it's all dependent on us. Learn to communicate with self, learn to rely on self. Learn to not only hear when you're talking to yourself but to also listen. You can't complain about something yet not do a thing to change it. We have to stop seeing honour in surviving, we have to stop thinking accepting what's below us is a sign of character. Stop playing small by being the bigger person, stop running into the fire unprovoked & celebrating its scars. Your life is up to you. If you're so kind & wonderful as to be there for people, why is it so hard to be there for you? What are you so scared of? If people can appreciate you, why is it so hard for you to appreciate you? For fear to end you just have to listen. fEAR. #LiteWords
How much more rape can a cuntry take?⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀ It seems from politics, society & life in general there's a great deal of finger-pointing & blaming without much acknowledgement or admission of any guilt.⠀ ⠀ When you look at the #AmINext movement ( #MeToo) it fascinates me that there's never been ONE man who has come out & said 'Yes, she's right'. Are we to assume that ALL women are delusional & they are ALL out to tarnish the brand of Men with all these false accusations?⠀ ⠀ With all these political controversies from #CR17BankStatements to #VBSBank scandals & State Capture issues, not ONE person is prepared to stand firm in their truth & say 'I did that, I'm sorry, how can we fix it?'⠀ ⠀ Whether it's Donald Trump, Harvey Weinstein or Bill Cosby, why is the first choice to try maneuver out of the mess by first denying it?⠀ ⠀ I think what many (legit) accused men are missing is that no one is calling them an abuser NOW, but these women are sharing what they experienced with you IN THE PAST.⠀ ⠀ Whether you agree or not doesn't change how you MADE them feel, but what you say now can change how you MAKE them feel.⠀ ⠀ I think there could have been far more healing if men came out of this & first acknowledged how these women felt in their presence & then to apologise unreservedly because hopefully they would have learned & become better men.⠀ ⠀ It's not immasculating to admit you've been less of a man, believe me every man has been there. But it is the MANLY thing to accept what our masculinity has carved us into, directly or not.⠀ ⠀ I believe the world has bled enough & for the wound to heal, someone needs to say Sorry. Someone needs to take accountability & lead.⠀ ⠀ There would be less marches & minimal damage to the next generation (who are learning that men never take any accountability for their actions) if men that are ever accused of anything (privately or publicly) can first start by saying 'I hear you, I'm sorry'.⠀ ⠀ Why is it so difficult to accept failure? To accept when you've gone wrong & turn back? Let's stop telling women HOW to hurt & WHAT should be offense to them.⠀ ⠀ Principle is Personal. What do you stand for? What is YOUR truth? #LiteWords

A mountain looks overwhelming from the bottom but no one ever climbed it in one solid go. It's all about the first step, the next step & the step after it. It's only when you reach the summit that you realise how much work the combination of each of those steps made. So stop looking at your career goals from the bottom to the top, just know where the summit is & take the all important step. From that step take the next key step. Enjoy each step as you take it & each time you take a break to look back you'll realise how much work you've put in, through each small step. #LiteWords #FootForThought
Death can only be a scary thought if you're not fulfilled in the present life. Death feels like a shutting door before the show gets to climax. In order to lose that fear of dying and enjoy the show, you have to live fully. And in order to enjoy life fully, you have to see death not as an ending to anything but merely the next best thing. What do you live for? No, not what have you been living for. When you remove what society; family or friends have influenced you into thinking you have to live for, what remains yours? What matters to you despite anyone else's affirmation? Find that & try live more of it daily. We are often trapped into certain 'achievements' first before we can claim to live fully because we've been conditioned into believing that if you haven't ticked certain boxes you haven't reached society's approval of a successful life. But have you ever paused to ponder as to who society is? Could you identify yourself in it? Do you stand out as an individual? If 'society' was ever to be placed in specific boxes do you know which one youd fall in? Find what speaks loudly to you & follow that voice. At the end of it all, when the lite starts flickering & the music starts to slow down, nothing you have given your attention will matter much. All you'll have will be the tenants of your heart and right at that moment, you may realise just how homeless you are. #LiteWords
