Never Feel Alone....Instead Shine Like A Diamond....

If you are reading this, you never have to feel alone. I mean that from the bottom of my heart. Reading the comments of the young man who is accused of the recent shooting, disturbs me greatly. Eye C U was created for people who harbor feelings of loneliness, and depression. Eye C U was created to fight social stigma's that make people feel out of place, by creating a place for them to be themselves.

Eye C U is here to say that the world is not cool, but you are cool. You have a place…

Low Place....

I am in a low place. I feel lost and unprepared for what is ahead of me.  It is 05/24/14 and and I feel low.  Not as low as I felt on 05/25/04, or 05/25/05/, or 05/25/06. I felt super low on 05/25/ 09. On all the previous dates, I was incarcerated. I was locked within cement cell with a steel door that I could not open. So is it fair to say that I am not feeling all that low?

How would the gentleman that I met while I was incarcerated feel if they could see me now calling myself low.…

"Faith power works wonders" Book of Splendor

Faith is something that I am choosing to embrace. I believe that by me doing what it is that I was created to do that the Creator will provide for all my need. Think about what it is a person do at their job. They work. They work and have faith that their employeer will pay them. I am taking this thought a step forward by saying that if I do the work of the Creator that he will pay me. I know that Eye C U is my purpose and sharing the…

Fighting Our Nature

I have been taught that in order to change from our backwards way of living and reach our fullest potential as spiritual beings, we must do the opposite of that which is in our nature. So, what is my nature? Avoidance. Isolation. Silence. Instead, I need to welcome those situations that make me uncomfortable, for it is these situations that will give me the opportunity to become better. I cannot be better if I avoid these opportunities. So... after accepting that I am not at my best and… Continue

Cast into Darkness

I am in darkness. I feel like one of the prisoners in Plato's Allegory of the Cave. The one that was taken out of the Cave and had the opportunity to see the beauty of truth. I have seen the beauty of love, something I had never experienced before on that level. Perhaps I was not ready for it. Because now I have been thrown back into the darkness, apparently undeserving of all that goodness. I know this place. I have been here before. But now, what was once comfortable, familiar is torture. I… Continue

An interesting take on love and marriage

Let there be spaces in your togetherness, And let the winds of the heavens dance between you. Love one another but make not a bond of love: Let it rather be a moving sea between the shores of your souls. Fill each other's cup but drink not from one cup. Give one another of your bread but eat not from the same loaf. Sing and dance together and be joyous, but let each one of you be alone, Even as the strings of a lute are alone though they quiver with the same music. Give your hearts, but not… Continue

Perhaps it has been so long since I've had a genuine friend (other than my husband) that I have forgotten what it means to have one. Perhaps that is why I have struggled to understand the relationship that's been blossoming. The question I find myself asking is whether I am different in the sense that I don't feel a desire to have a friend or are many of my problems the result of me not having one? In other words, am I a rare breed of human that truly does not possess the emotional need for a… Continue

"Takes A Village" .....Happy Mothers Day... Power Up

   "It takes a village to raise a child." I'd like to take the time to give thanks to all the women who have come into my life and help mold me into the person I am today. I'd like to give thanks to my wife who has worked well with my mother to create a environment for our family to grow into a great a team. Most importantly thank you to all the women who realize that family comes before self. Who grasped the concept that the greater good for group is more important than one person. Who…

Am I a Hater?

I just saw an old friend's profile on that other social networking site. And he seems to be doing very well. Brand new house. Brand new car. I should be happy for them, so why do I feel some sort of way? It just doesn't seem fair that this person, whom I distanced myself from because I didn't agree with his values, this person who was infamous for trying to get over on people, could be blessed like that while we struggle financially over here when all we try to do is help others.

But… Continue

Be Before Becoming

   The Book of splendor speaks of "Be Before Becoming", which is to be the thing in which you want to become. I believe by Be Before Becoming you can govern yourself accordingly to reach your goal. It its not only to work towards a goal, but to embrace it and to be the goal is to appreciate and fully feel the pleasure of the struggle. With this understanding of hardships, and mistakes,  you understand that this is what its like to be the thing you strive to be, so you understand your purpose…

Why Eye?

The last 7 days have been very difficult for me. I had problems at work, at home, and within my own mind. I was feeling angry, anxious, revengeful, and negative. Thank you Eye C U for changing all that. Because there were people here to love and communicate their knowledge and wisdom, I found light in the midst of the darkness. I am so glad that I had people there who would just let me rant, and go through my range of emotions, without trying to tell me what to do. People just listened, and…

I am Blessed

I have to thank the creator for my husband. Despite my many shortcomings, he has always been there for me. Even when I don't realize it or appreciate it, he always tries to help me. I love him so much. Unfortunately, fear of losing him has overshadowed much of the happiness I should be feeling. I would like to change this. From now on, any circumstance that would normally bring up fears that I'm not good enough or that my problems will cause him to not love me, I will see what is really there.… Continue

Lemons into Lemonade

So, yesterday was one of those horrible days where everything I said was wrong. I am crushed today, as I always am after days like that, wondering how much damage I caused and whether it is beyond repair. But despite this, I want to at least attempt to find the lessons I should have learned from the experience. Maybe writing them down will reinforce them and I can actually apply them in the future rather than them just collecting dust in my mind, waiting for the next time I screw up and have to… Continue
