Does Anyone "Believe" Anymore ?

Here's a question for you? What is your belief? Christian? Baptist ? "Atheist"? For the past three years I've  noticed people just doing their own thing when it comes to spiritual beliefs, practices and thoughts. It's like the christian population is dying down and people are just getting down with the so called "New Age " ways. If you don't know what that is it entails psychic reading, chakras, pyramids, basically Consciousness. Conscious of what you ask? Conscious of your own being and who and what is in this universe we live in. 

As for me , sometimes I try to find a balance of how I feel and my thoughts of the things I've learned since leaving the nest of my parents. I was once a youth pastor ( seem so long ago ) singing praises to the Lord every Sunday. Then my perspectives had changed. Sometimes I reminisce of those times and how I felt spirituality. Lets just say life is pretty different when you now know there isn't a mysterious man in the sky judging you; or am I being judged?  By whom ? hmm (too deep for y'all lol ). Share your thoughts on this and how you believe the world today looks at religion or belief as the whole . 
Take a peek at shameless maya and her perspective , which sparked this article .

Women With Vocals Of Sass and Class


Its not often you find music of feeling or quirk in todays general music. Fortunately there is a avenue for such artists via NPR Music . Take a look at Deqn Sue with quirk and fun sas and Andra Day with soulful vibes. Not only that but they are women representing class.

Your thoughts .Your Reality

What are you afraid of? Criticism? Losing your supporters? If living unapologetically is the outcome then so be it. I fight with myself daily of all the things I want to be doing with my life or rather be doing in that moment. In my true essence all I want to do is service the community, do yoga and be in my spirituality. But its hard to do that when you have limitations on yourself not allowing yourself to be just that. Recently I moved into a house and today is my first day really being alone with my thoughts and boy they were talking to me.

Let me honest with myself and you. Opinions really matter to me from parents to my life partner to the slightest people because I always want to seem "perfect". Im not! We all are not! Should I apologize for it? Should I apologize for my realization I'm bi- sexual? Should I be apologetic because its not what I "should be"?  Does it make me less connected to the source? As I was journalling my higher self was telling me ultimately JUST BE!! and stop holding myself captive in my mind. Live your truth people !! live!!

A Stolen Culture & The Price You Pay For It

People my dear people do you think this is flattering or culture vulture activity going on here? Nike is soon to release a black history line January 18th (thank you Saint Heron for the informational article). The line is to appreciate the melanated stars who have contributed to sports through out the years. 


Their form of appreciation is showing and selling is kente cloth sneakers and gear. If that didn't seem redundant to you let me put it in another way.The general public is to be sold  colorful sneakers with dark undertones and patterns resembling the black culture and passing it you the customer; to buy expensive gear because you are acknowledging black history.

But wait there is more..Valentino released their Spring/Summer 2016 clothing line and what does it entail?... You guessed it! More tribal wear! I'm flattered these brands are interested in the culture and things we naturally wore as people;but to sell it back to us as if it something new? I understand/appreciate the level of creativity that went into these process,but if this doesn't make people of color start their own business idk what would.

Don't feed into the hype people! Create your own or support others who sell something similar within your community. Trade your dollars with those you support and are like minded. Disclaimer:Article isn't to bash but to bring awareness of the culture we live in when it comes to trends,culture and money exchange.
