Naturally You and Me!

Now no disrespect to the sista's whom wear there hair in a state that is not natural because at some point in my life, I wore the weaves, the perm, relaxer, the braids and to be honest I miss it sometimes, but I am happy and content with my natural hair from when i  was rocking the afro, coils, and now locs.  So if you choose to wear your hair that way, then so be it thats your choice and folks should respect that.  Now the issue is folks trying to make one feel inferior because of there own insecurities or because I say I love myself the way the creator made me.  In loving myself, i've been told I don't know how to bend.  I've been told that I think I am better then folks; "you think you're pure one may say", or that I am not good enough because I wear my hair natural or when my emotions are fired up, then I spit fire from these lips.  The thing is, Millie don't let nobody disrespect her. Give respect to get respect.  Even with some of this BS being said to me, Millie is still who she is, loving herself, being playful, sending emails to busy folks who make me smile even if they don't know it, and embracing her nappy hair.  Hey my hair is clean, I wash it, its neat, what else can I do.  So if the impotent whom I speak of reads this, then as we say in Eber (Hebrew)  Shalom!!!!!!

How Does a Person Change?

How do I change?

Hit rock bottom, or find yourself a teacher.

Change is what happens when the pain of staying the same is too great. The moment we can't "take it anymore" is the moment we start giving and transforming.

A far less painful route is to develop a personal relationship with someone you respect or admire. Getting to know someone that has been where you want to go, whose 'energy' inspires you, is a great way to accelerate change in your life.

Today, if you have that someone in your life, re-dedicate yourself to putting time and effort into that bond. And if you don't, start putting your feelers out [ie. ask YHWH (the Light)] to send you someone from whom you can learn.

When you find the right teacher, real change will be inspired even without words.

Is Gold Digging a New Concept or an Acient Practice!

I don't know about you but where did the concept of marrying for love come from?  I live my life according to the ancient teaching of the Torah; the five books of Moses.  It was custom during those times for a man to be able to provide for a female or be established before he even took on a woman. To present gifts to a woman was showing that he is able and capable of sustaining.  Well gold digging is the modern day name for it. Why did you think they married in ancient or biblical times? Even in earlier modern day times with relationships. Not for love it was what can you do for me or are you able to give me x,y, and z. However, woman at that time came with their own bounty too! The concept is still the same in some way! 
Genesis 24
22And it came to pass, as the camels had done drinking, that the man took a golden earring of half a shekel weight, and two bracelets for her hands of ten shekels weight of gold;

30And it came to pass, when he saw the earring and bracelets upon his sister's hands, and when he heard the words of Rebekah his sister, saying, Thus spake the man unto me; that he came unto the man; and, behold, he stood by the camels at the well.

35And the LORD hath blessed my master greatly; and he is become great: and he hath given him flocks, and herds, and silver, and gold, and menservants, and maidservants, and camels, and asses.

53And the servant brought forth jewels of silver, and jewels of gold, and raiment, and gave them to Rebekah: he gave also to her brother and to her mother precious things.

. 58And they called Rebekah, and said unto her, Wilt thou go with this man? And she said, I will go.
You can read the chapter in its entirety to get a better understanding.  We would call this gold digging or is this just how things are suppose to be? 
 59And they sent away Rebekah their sister, and her nurse, and Abraham's servant, and his men.
 60And they blessed Rebekah, and said unto her, Thou art our sister, be thou the mother of thousands of millions, and let thy seed possess the gate of those which hate them.
 61And Rebekah arose, and her damsels, and they rode upon the camels, and followed the man: and the servant took Rebekah, and went his way.
