Reggae Sundays: Gun Cry- Elijah ft Terry Lyn

Clarity about life in many inner cities, townships, favela, ghetto… whatever they call it in your part of the world.

Reggae Sundays: Stephen Marley ft Black Thought of the Roots

Didn’t you know that the higher you go, the more you’ll expose if you’re a thorn or a rose. 

Nothing to hide, no pretense, nothing more than what you are. No matter how much of an image or character you try to create for yourself what is real will eventually shine through and trump what you pretend to be. Tread carefully, you might be misled by someone else’s master camouflaging of the things about them that will have a negative effect on your life. They might not even know that they are taking away from you, but their outlook on life is like oil to your water. Respect them, accept them. Does not mean mingle with them, for in the grand scheme of things it takes conscious, reflexive work to be a better person every day and the ones who cannot respect and accept this are often unintentionally parasitic.

Or at least that’s what I’ve learned this past few years.

Humility is strength.  The proof is in the works not in the talk or ‘image’.

Stay woke.
