    You know family....sometimes it's so hard to grow, to know when it's time or where your path may lead. With all my knowing and not knowing, I have often refused to acknowledge what I do know in terms of doing what logic dictates must be done. Why?....cause growth is painful, that's why. It often means leaving so much behind for horizons unseen and unknown. It means too much for me to write about because life for me has been and still is a journey that will not allow my mind or spirit to rest. My death will be a lonely one for I do not long to have others cling to me or to have myself clinging to anyone. What will the remainder of my life be?....I do not know, for I haven't written it yet and my hand trembles with the pen today.

    Since the number 9 is the number of completion I want to leave you with these for the wise to acknowledge.

    1. History is good to look back on so as to bring the best into the future but not to go back to.

    2. No one can fight your battles for you although many may help you to win.

    3. No one can ever do for you what you refuse to do for yourself.

    4. Your friends are clearly seen in times of adversity.

    5. Those who do not support their own is worse than a disbeliever.

    6. God/Goddess helps those who help themselves.

    7. Since two energies can not occupy the same space at the same time, the choice of positive or negative energy existing within yourself is up to you.

    8. Since we all are living to die, it makes no sense for us to be dying to live.

    9. Success comes to those who know when it's time to get out of your own way.

    Have a Joyous Day !!

    Thank You for Sharing!
    :bowdown:
    I particularly identify with # 8.

    Growing to the knowledge that to BE Afreekan in this shystem means engaging in continued acts of SURVIVING!!!....I want to LIVE and this is NOT "living" for me. Having Accepted that has placed me on a path seeking transformation. I'm finding it a lonely journey and seems as if I clearly moving against the grain....fighting to get UP~hill while most others are going downhill and enjoying their ride.

    Again...if "living" means to accept this life...... as it is....then....
    I'm clearly in my own way of obtaining "success" here...now.
    Success appears to be strongly correlated with consistent "positivity"
    I'm curious now what people's definition of "negativity":?:
    How is it manifested in one's life:?:
    What are the specific behaviors characterizing it (negativity):?:
    Is "positivity" positively correlated with Spiritual Peace while "living" in a messy shytuation:?:

    Anywho....

    Thanks for sharing...
