“Move On” – random thoughts by G. D. Grace

Some enter our lives compliments of a destiny already written, and their purpose is revealed through mutual experiences shared together. Not all are joyful, as a matter of fact, some are downright painful, and even then we usually emerge stronger and wiser — those of us who understand that God makes no mistakes. When it’s time, we know when to move on — most of us.

That old cliché about some people being in our lives only for a season holds more truth than I ever thought. Sometimes we hold on so tight we loose part of ourselves in a relationship that was intended to run its course for a specified time only.

When we want what we want, regardless of how internally wrecked it leaves us feeling, it’s almost as if we revel in the pain subconsciously.

“No Human is God” – random thoughts by G. D. Grace

There was a sadness in his eyes, and they held a horror that only he knew. Hundreds pass him by as he sits curbside on a busy street corner near a random sewer, one of a hundred in the bustling city he calls home.

His was a tale of physical and mental abuse from the hands of a woman he loved more than life itself. In the beginning, her smile radiated a profound love so tender, that he found himself willing to do anything to appease her every want and fill her innermost desires.

She was worth the sacrifice, and when he lost himself within her allure, he became the pitiful fool she despised. So now he sits spiritually broken, dwelling in the aftermath of a self inflicted sorrow of his own design.

He had made another human being his God, and the wrath of failure floods his soul each time he guzzles the 80 proof cocktail to deaden the pain.

Didn’t he realize…

no human is God?

Joe Jackson Pens Open Letter To Janet: ‘I’m Proud Of You’

Originally posted on 93.1 WZAK:

Joe JacksonJoe Jackson has been painted as everything from a monster to a genius over the decades. His love for his children overshadowed by greed and ambition.

Now, in a series of posts on his blog, Jackson is opening up about his notoriously private family. Beginning with his estranged wife Katherine Jackson, the family patriarch has written down his feelings about each of his children, culminating with today?s post about his ?girl,? Janet:

Janet, the youngest in the family is very very smart. She was more like a tough kid. She was real rough. I mean she was rough. What do they call them… yes … tomboy. She was a tomboy.  She could whop all the girls. Really rough and really really smart. She is really easy nowadays. She has mellowed. She is now married and living a good life with her husband.

Knowing Yourself: 3 Keys to Leveraging Ancient Wisdom

Originally posted on TIME:

“Know Thyself”

The Oracle at Delphi said “Know thyself.” And that is deep and profound.

It’s also a pain in the ass because as with every cliche, the difficulty is in the execution and nobody ever bothers to tell you how to do it properly.

I guess they’re too busy brainstorming new fortune cookie wisdom while we sit around thinking they’re smart for coming up with it and we’re dumb for not being able to follow through.

Knowing yourself is the hardest thing in the world because nobody lies to you about you more than you do.

We need answers. Good answers. Ones we can achieve simply — without a PhD, a wrench or elective surgery.

What does “knowing yourself” really take?

What “Knowing Yourself” Means

It’s amazing to me how much real insight about life is coming from business books and business schools these days.

“MUSIC” – intro to the radio interview with John Henry Harvey

Music. God’s rhythmic blessing that deposits courage, faith & spirituality into the heart and soul. It is a quintessential element composed of thought, feeling, and emotion, interpreted by the performance artist who delivers the powerful message from the most sincere and honest place within the heart.

Music is our confidant during times of mourning and sorrow, and our radiant light during moments of joy and celebration. It is our connection to meaning and purpose that transports us via melodic revelry, towards a higher plain of spirituality and existence, taking us closer to the divine, to the holy.
There in that space of hope we are consoled and find reason and purposeful understanding, as we behold a vast love from an insurmountable power by the touching words and music that fill the corridors of our belief, and what lingers on afterwards is the word.

The chosen are touched by the very breath of God, vulnerable without fear, for in their honesty lies the perfect key that links us together and makes us human. When he reached out to me and asked to be on the show it was a no brainer, for behind that inquiry was God’s whisper which reminded me of the platform for which I have been given.

“To Keep What We Have” – random thoughts by G. D. Grace

Closing my weary eyes I see a life force rising,
slowly emerging from the destitute ashes of over with and absolutely done.
It searches the regions of foreign and unknown looking for recovery with complete abandonment.
It desperately wants to be relieved from that obsession that covers the sun and blinds the moon.

Deep within a battered voice calls out frantically, beckoning to be freed from the ties that bind.
It stood on the opposite side of a desolate street, looking for a secure way across it,
and countless failed efforts manifested into profound desperation,
until that fateful moment when clarity was made clear.

All the material belongings were gone…
Connections with the slim & shady, severed,
And many of the fears had dissipated.
In this powerful vision a lone raft of hope floated towards the curb, and it was filled with faith.
Half measured availed us none, but complete surrender revealed The Promises.

The vessel proved to be a blessed life line, and it was built sturdy to weather new storms.
It sailed effortlessly towards a better way of living,
catching the golden rays of light from a now visible sun…
and in the warm bosom of countless new horizons is where that inner-peace resides,
for these are the times after dysfunction and the incomprehensible demoralization.

“We can only keep what we have by giving it away…”
