How to choose your own reality:

  1. Break free from judgment. Surround yourself with people that align with you. 
  2. Say no and ask for what you want. Life is a series of choices. These two simple adjustments will allow you to control the direction of your life.
  3. Don’t trap yourself in a mental box by saying things like, “I’m not good enough, yet. I need more money before I can do what I want. Let me wait until these arbitrary things happen before I dow act I want.” Go after what you want now.

It doesn’t matter if there are 8 people on earth or 8 billion people, the earth never gets heavier because we are made from earth. We are 90% hydrogen, oxygen, and carbon. Even everything we build is just repurposed from the earth’s resources. Matter is neither created nor destroyed. Everything that’s here actually has always been here. The water you drink is the same water dinosaurs drank. In a way, the earth has always existed since the Big Bang. And even more trippy, in a way, you have always existed since the Big Bang.

Picasso, the founding father of the art movement Cubism, has a famous quote that says, “Steal like an artist.” This week I learned something mind-blowing about him that shock my entire perception about my love for Cubism. I learned that Pablo Picasso stole Cubism from the stolen African artworks being brought to Paris when the French empire invaded Sub-Saharan Africa. History has praised Picasso when they should’ve been marveling at the beautiful art of the Africans. 

There are so many people, even black people, who are subconscious white-male supremacists. If you worship the imagery of a white, male God you are subconsciously choosing to put white people on a pedestal. Imagine how odd it would be if the image of Jesus was a strong black African woman with a big ass Afro and every white person worshiped her…that would make the black woman person superior. This is why it’s important to remove the imagery of what we perceive as God. 

Do you know that time is different on other planets and other worlds? It’s because the gravitational pull affects the time continuum. It’s so hard to fathom. But then I think about Ife and how she has a strong gravitational pull that draws me towards her. I feel it literally the further away I am from her—like when I travel alone. It’s so powerful. That’s why time moves so slow when I’m not with her, yet so fast when I’m with her. It has always been hard to comprehend, but I think it’s because in a metaphysical sense she is my world.
