Are You behind the wheel right now or throwing a fit in the back seat?. Lil bit of both? Cool.
What is it commanding each and every one of Your moves?
Drive comes from internal force. That engine sits inside and creates mini explosions propelling whoever and whatever wherever.
Drag comes from external force. When something has a hold on something else and produces more force in it’s own direction, it will drag the weaker force.
It’s one thing to have an engine.
It’s another thing to create them.
“Manage pride but I see it clear
Strategize, I’m an engineer” -Nipsey Hussle
It will make us move almost instantaneously sometimes and other times create a glue under our asses.
Via Dictionary.com:”fulfillment of one’s wishes, expectations or needs, or the pleasure derived from this.
Synonyms:contentment, gratification, pleasure, happiness, sense of well-being”
Naturally, We are very pleasure-seeking. Experience has dragged me into the inner-standing that if Your motivators and motivations are not positive extensions of Your Purpose You risk focus. And focus is time. And time is only now.
For example: I have been externally motivated by physical pleasures from the opposite sex, food and attention. While instinctual and/or habitual, unfortunately for them, they did not meet my Purpose’s criteria for healthy, beneficial habits towards Purposeful Living and they gone! But I bid them farewell- at every second. It doesn’t stop. You must remember to apply compassionate, managerial pressure over Your focus continuously.
I have engineered a Purposeful Focus that engages my entire being.
The suffering I created for mySelf by allowing Pleasure to drive did not resonate with the Power-Filled Woman I knew I needed to be.
Though, On some occasions we find ourselves addicted.
This is a Physical, Psychological attachment to something outside of ourselves – a parasitic relationship. This is You being dragged.
Until somehow Your mindset shifts.
The how is Personal And Hopefully You aren’t too fucked up but You will be here, and that alone gifts You the richness of choice. Choose to wear that experience wisely, not slave at the memory of it.
All pleasure You feel is Physical. It happens within Your brain as a series of chemical reactions. Your brain is taking in information from all of Your senses all day and processing these combinations of collections. It forms opinions, reactions, responses – involuntarily, instinctually, socially, emotionally- to everything You experience, whether subconsciously or consciously -for safety and pleasure.
You must feel safest and most pleased as YourSelf.
Accepting Your role in the dragging of Your potential builds character. You are the Hero You wait for!
“I weighted risk and the reward and seen the scale tippin’
Let’s all get on one accord and take the world n*****…
Can’t buy that bullshit that they sell n*****
They breed drugheads and jail n*****” – Nipsey Hussle
This is the gateway.
Approaching predicaments already satisfied is an available option. The satisfaction is not with the circumstances but instead with You -Your Peace. This is not to be encouraging nor embodying of indifference, nor detachment. Inner-Peace can still appear richly as vigor, energy and passion, rebelliousness and submission.
Volunteering the most effective aspects of You wont feel laborious in the midst of “A Gratitude Attitude” -which basically vibes like :You are Fortunate every second in this life experience. The now is Your gift, You are no “What If”, You are NOW and there are no rules with what You may manifest.
“Real Big, Real Big
I knew one day I would do it real big
Real Shit, Real Shit
I know all my Real N***** feel this
Can’t even see the stars but we still wish
Real shit, Real shit
Who would’ve ever thought that we would build this” – Nipsey Hussle
Productively and simultaneously driving away from _____ (the bullshit)and toward _______(some real shit).
The dragging energy must suffocate. It must dissolve out of Your existence before You can begin harnessing energy for propelling.
Late for work, low on funds and it’s raining. What could the day possibly have in-store?
Numbness is always a dead giveaway that Your emotions- energy in motion- are dragging You. You have NOW.
Struggle: to make forceful or violent efforts to get free of restraint or constriction.
I quit/resigned/was fired from 4 different jobs in 2018. As I forced a dance with them – we struggled.
Bouncing from environment to environment in search of some comfort proved meaningless. Comfort had to come from within.
What is Your comfort dressed in?
Mine is dripping in Freedom. For me it is when I want for No Thing and No One and each breath is so sweet and effortless. In Joy all tasks sweeten to Purpose You’d honestly do for free.
So after accepting where I was, I began to work on it.
I showed up in each day, rain or shine believing and being grateful that who I was and what I had was more than enough. I accepted 3 new offers, went back to school and started my own business.
Do You believe that Your design is Purposeful? I do.
Each struggle is for each breakthrough.
Should You choose to entertain fear, You will always play the fool. You will compromise Your Life entertaining it. It will settle in Your Spirit and spill over into all You are and it will grow, entangling You over time. It is no cradle but a strangle of self.
You are an Energy of Experiences. Your understanding of these experiences dictates Your influence over Yourself and Your environment. Understand that it is not each experience itself that influences You but Your understanding of it as a tool for You.
Each experience is Perfect.
You are here to grow. There’s no choice available for You to make that won’t lead to Your growth, some will just feel more convenient than the others.
The trick is in discipline but You’ve got to be realistic and engaged.
We find ourselves longing for “newness” so often with no garuntee that whatever we order/manifest in the Universe will even be satisfying to us. The only real satisfaction in this dimension is self-made & sustained in Your own Self/growth, for what is new will inevitably become old and what is Yours has always been.
Change Your internal views to value and seek peace in it’s personal forms. Avoid accumulating externally what’s “new.”
This Universe grows out of itself by growing into itself, over and over again.
Be true and look to Your Light when- not if- it gets dark.
