Get your Butt out of the way

Ever wondered why they say the “Truth is bitter”? Well, it is bitter because it is straightforward, direct, and doesn’t always feel or taste good. Just as certain kinds of food or drinks, maybe teas taste quite awful but are very good for your health. In fact, most medicines are usually bitter. See where I’m going with this ?

We have grown and outgrown so many things internally and externally as we evolve on this planet as a specie over the centuries but one thing that has been the same since the beginning of time is the bitter taste of the truth and why people dislike or find it difficult to identify it.

Tell yourself the truth. If you need to yell at yourself to get the message do it, if you need to scream or shout or cry. Do it. Just freaking do it. Get your butt( your buts) out of the way. Stop making excuses. Sitting on your butt, feeling sorry for yourself will not save or change your life and situation. You have to get up, face your shit and get out of your own way with your words and daily attitude.

You know why it’s important to get out of your way?

No one will save you. Unfortunately. It’s not anyone’s duty but yours, you have to master yourself and learn to not look outside of yourself otherwise you’ll keep being disappointed or worse distracted. Remember, tomorrow never comes plus everyone and everything is a distraction. You come first. Your priority is YOU. Yes YOU!. Your physical, mental and emotional health comes first. So in order to be a better person, irregardless of what you might have going on for you, You have to separate the beans from the shaft. Although, it may seem shaky at first, you have to keep moving. You are never alone. Keep trying. Your story may be the motivation someone out there needs. Don’t stop. You are more than capable and this is what you signed up for.

You must get out of your head and get your butt out of the way. This is how you become the highest and best version you can be.

Let’s get it fam!

Service

One of the best quotes I ever heard by Oprah, is be of service and to be excellent at it, then success is by default.

My father loved the word “excellent” he never was satisfied with “very good”, even worse “good”, not to even speak of anything less. He was a man full of confidence in his daughter. He never saw me as anything less than a Queen, a Goddess and he treated me as such ( no he wasn’t close to perfect, he had a negative side to that too same as everyone ).. However, I wouldn’t trade any lesson he taught me directly or indirectly for any other thing in this world.. Excellence seemed like a perfect score” he called me excellence” he would check on the remarks the teacher gave before he checked on the position or percentage level.. I always wondered why..

Recently, I’ve been re-evaluating myself in all my growth areas and I have realized that I didn’t accept that I was excellent not until now ! ( Damn!! that hurt me deeply) and this was a remarkable discovery I woke up to one beautiful morning.. I realized I was born excellent, I grew up in excellence by excellent parents . As a matter of fact I am magnificent! I am excellence!! wow .. what a relief .. Next came the question, how does my excellence be of service ?

In my last post I wrote about “The temple”, https://barisity.com/2020/06/23/the-temple/ ( the true meaning behind the temple), you know, sometimes we as a people need a gentle reminder that we are uniquely different. What do you do in a temple? You serve isn’t it? You were taught to be of service.. How?? By cleaning, directing, organizing, singing etc.. Now that you know what a temple really really is, how do you serve ? It’s quite simple !! You serve, by being your best self and doing it all over and over and over again every single day . That’s how you become excellent!! Excellence is a skill birth from commitment..

When you master yourself, you become aware of your strengths and weaknesses. Being of service simply means putting them to good use at every given moment. If there is one skill you should learn in life, how to master yourself” is just that. You have to learn to serve yourself ! Learn to listen to yourself, learn to observe yourself, learn to acknowledge yourself , learn to tolerate yourself , learn to communicate with yourself .. before you can ever truly be of service to anyone or any group of people you have to be of service to your own damn self!!

The call you are waiting on, the romance you are expecting, the career you hope for, the dream vacation you’re planning on are all experiences that you believe would make you happier. Now imagine, if you can organize, clean and prioritize your emotions and thoughts to focus on these things ( which are all in your temple of course ), what do you think you’re doing? You are simply serving yourself to fulfill your wishes and make you happier !! So it is in businesses, to really be excellent in a business, one has to KNOW THE TEMPLE and the people who patronize that temple ..

Dedication is major key here, anything worth doing is worth doing well they say.. How about, you do yourself well enough and see how everything around you becomes an extended version of you ?!

Be of true service .. by mastering yourself and become excellent at YOURSELF through hard work ( which is real hard work, because you learn on the job).Most people think mastery is a destination, a junction. No it isn’t.. You learn everyday, in every experience and you have to be open minded to be one who learns everyday ( that’s the hard part I believe ).

To serve God is to know yourself and when you do, you become THE TRUTH and of course “the truth shall set you free”.

To lead is to serve and to serve, is to be of service.

Know your temple and be of service!

With love…

What is the Spirit, soul and body?

Before i dive deep into this. I would like you to know that the human body has three parts to it. A lot of individuals do not even know this. Some people think we have just this physical body and that everything is physical.

“Your physical body is only your earthsuit”— like a physical bag that embodies the three part of you.

What I’m about to share with you would help you with the understanding of yourself as a whole-(spirit, soul, and body). Understanding the relationship between these three elements will help you towards understanding yourself.

You know how i say science, art and magic are all in one? Well, it’s absolutely true. So much mis-communicated information out there, but I’m here to share the fundamental truth to help you better your lives.

Solid liquid and gas are nothing but a higher dimension of time space and matter ..

Time is a higher dimension of liquid

Space is a higher dimension of gas

Matter is a higher dimension of solid

* Everything is everything * ( as I always say )

You must have heard about the fact that God is a tripartite — Father, Son and Holy Spirit — likewise man is three parts as well—( The body soul and spirit) The soul and spirit are the primary immaterial aspects of humanity, while the body is the physical container that holds them on here right now on earth. As human beings, we live eternally as a spirit, we have a soul, and we dwell in a body.

Your soul is is your mind, your will, and your emotions. Your Spiritual growth is determined by how much your soul has been changed by the Word of God.(simply put ie…your own words)..

Man was created as a “living soul.” The soul consists of the mind (which includes the conscience), the will and the emotions. Even in the Bible, it was written-“Be ye transformed, (In the book of romans), by the renewing of your mind(a.k.a your mindset” ).

Now listen…what that means is when you renew your mind,you are transformed. And if you do not renew your mind, that means you will remain the same!

Are you getting this ??

Body,soul and spirit are all one and the same just in 3 dimensions this is why we call our realm of reality the 3D—

Your soul can be in damnation just as well as your body But your spirit will always be here because it is gas —-

The way you handle your soul determines where your body goes -which simply put the way your mind works,is the way your body works.

Your spirit is like a guide,it guides you throughout your existence and that’s why you have spirit guides’— This is your compass because it is the very beginning of you!

You are a whole being and to be a whole being means knowing you have 3 parts of you and to be fully and completely connected with your truest self means knowing that you are always connected with each and every part of you. The spirit part of you (spiritual), the soulful part of you (mind, mental) and the physical part of you (body, environment,)
