     Most will say that the last few days of the year should be spent in reflection. Others even go as far as strategizing how the first week of the new year will be spent. Believing that how you bring in the year is how the rest of the year will go. Admittedly, I’ve tried all these tactics in my past. I took a vow of silence the last 48 hours of 2011, in the hopes of receiving divine direction. It was the most peaceful two days I encountered. However, the year that followed was the most treacherous.

     2012 has a been a year of self discovery for me. Partly from forced life lessons, others I searched for. What I’ve come to learn is that peaceful moments will always reveal themselves when a person is in search of it. However, it’s the maintenance of peacefulness that we seem to struggle with the most. The wrestling of our spirits is what keeps many of us up at night or knelt in prayer. Our spirits act as if it’s imprisoned within us.

     At this same time last year, during my fast from speaking, I allowed my spirit to rest. As a result, I received the answers from God that I was looking for. Prayer, fasting and reading spiritual literature allowed me to subdue logical thinking that was blocking any other voice besides my own. Although, I hear God’s voice more frequently now, my own inner voice is still the loudest and has the most impact.

God’s voice told me go,
my own voice told me to stay.
Stay comfortable.

God’s voice told you to go,
your own voice told you to stay.
Stay safe.

     We have become a nation of comfortably safe insomniacs. We’ve slept walked into a time when Mayan culture predicted wouldn’t exist. We’ve witnessed the mass murdering of babies in a fashion we never would’ve dreamed of. The desire to remain asleep should be no more.

     The media laughed and corporations capitalized off the Mayan philosophy of our world coming to an end. No attention was paid to the additional aspects of their theory that this age in time could not be predicted as the “dead is to be born again”. Today, more than ever life is what you make of it. How can we live life to its fullest half awake?

     As many of the world’s inhabitants were preparing for the world to end, others mocked the predicted concept. There are few who prepared for their calling to teach to be revealed. Faith is a learned and re-learned belief. It’s the enlightened ones who allowed the imprisonment of their spirit, God’s voice, to start a new beginning by experiencing freedom. A purposed filled life isn’t birthed until your voice repeats that of God’s and your feet begin to walk down your newly claimed cleared path. According to the book of James, “for the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works is dead also.”

     As 2013 approaches, reflect on all your previous reflections you have yet to act upon. I guarantee nights will become more restful and smiles will become a more frequently seen fixture on your face once you accept your membership as apart of the Holy Trinity. Your spirit should not be competing with the views of the world or your ego. In 2013, stop thinking so much….and just DO. Just GO! Just BE PURPOSELY HAPPY!

Anywhere in the USA, 16 January 2012:  For everyone who’s a lover, supporter and/or encourager of literary arts, here’s a great non-hassle way to help promote the literacy movement.  From January 27 – January 31 2012 join forces with a non-profit group originated out of Greensboro, NC, Poet.She.  Poet.She is a female spoken and literary group that strives to strengthen the female presence in the literary and spoken word community. This group consists of women primarily based out of NC, SC, VA, MD, DC and ATL who are passionate about poetry, writing, literature and want to share that passion with the community. 

The members of Poet.She are making fantastic strides and building a strong reputation in the southeast region.  All members are fueled from an unbreakable passion to have the females voice, from elementary age to our elders, heard.  For this reason, Barnes and Noble has partnered up with Poet.She to help do just that. 

Spoken word is a beautiful artistic expression that Poet.She believes has a need to be shared more frequently and in very diverse creative ways.  Poet.She’s goals are to continue hosting writing workshops for school age children, including institutions of higher level education, to complete their first stage production and support local community events that promote literacy.  The group, along with Barnes & Noble, needs your help to make a more impactful change in 2012.
