Dear You… And me

I have 4000+ friends on Facebook, yet I’m lonely
I speak to most of them everyday, yet none of the really know me,
The problem I have sits in the spaces between looking onto their eyes or at a name on the screen,

I took a step back and opened my eyes and looked around and realised that this media we call social is anything but social…
When we open our computers or smartphones; its our doors and hearts we shut

All this technology we have; is just an illusion
Community, companionship, a sense of inclusion yet when you step away from this devicisive delusion you wake and you see a world of confusion
A world were we slaves to the technologies we mastered
Were information gets sold by some rich greedy bastard

A world of self-interest, self-image, self-promotion
Were we share our best moments but leave out the emotion
We arent always happy with the experience we share but is it the same when no-one is there
Be there for your friends and they will be there too
But no-one will be there; if a group message will do

We edit and excagerate crave adulation; we pretend not to notice the social isolation
We put our words into order mad set our eyes at listening
We don’t even know if anyone is listening

Being alone isn’t the problem, let me just emphasize
When you read a book, paint a picture, or do some exercise you being productive and present
No reserve to recluse
You being awake and attentive, you putting your time to good use
So when you in public and you start feeling alone, put your hands behind your head and step away from the phone

You don’t don’t need to stare at the menu or at your contact list
Just look to your side and talk to one another
Learn to co-exist
I can’t stand to hear the silence of a busy taxi rank or mall
Where no-one wants to talk from the fear of looking insane
We becoming unsocial, and it no longer satisfies to engage with one another or looking into someone’s eyes
We are surrounded by children who since they were born, have watched us living like robots and think its the norm

Its not very likely to be the world’s greatest dad if you can’t entertain a child without using an IPad
When I was a child I was never home, I’d be out with my friends with my toys and getting dust and soil all over our clothes at the parks
Now the parks are so quiet it gives me a chill
To see no children outside and swings hanging still
There’s no skipping, no morabaraba, no “di Ali”
We are a generation of idiots, smartphones and dumb people

So look up from your phone and shutdown the display
Take in your surrounding and make the most of today
One real connection is all it can take to show you the diferrence of being there…
Be there in the moment when she gives you the look that you remember forever as when love overtook
The time she first held your hand, the first time she kissed your lips
The time you first disagreed but still loved her to bits
The time you don’t have to tell hundreds of people what you have just done
Because you want to share this moment with just this one
The time you sell your computer so you can buy a ring for the girl of your dreams who is now the real thing
The time you want to start a family
And the moment when you first hold your little girl or little boy and get to fall inlove once again
The time the baby keeps you up at night and all you want is rest
And the time you wipe your tears when your baby leaves the nest
The time you take in all you made just by giving life attention
And how you glad you didn’t waste it by looking down at some invention
Cause when you busy looking down at your phone, you don’t see the chances that you miss


Put down your phone and live life…
Go enjoy nature and leave all the distractions behind
Our time in this world is short
And after all the textings and chats we are all we really got…
Put your phone down already

The world is coming to an end, in the words of PRINCE EA

The world is coming to an end,
The air is polluted, the oceans contaminated,
The animals are going extinct, the economy’s collapsed,
Education is shot, police are corrupt,
Intelligence is shunned and ignorance rewarded,

The people are depressed and angry
We can’t live with each other and we can’t live with ourselves,
So everyone’s medicated,
We pass each other on the streets,
And if we do speak it’s meaningless robotic communication,
More people want 15 seconds of fame,
Than a lifetime of meaning and purpose,
Because what’s popular is more important than what’s right,
Ratings are more important than the truth,

Our government builds twice as many prisons than schools
It’s easier to find a Big Mac than an apple
And when you find the apple
It’s been genetically processed and modified
Presidents lie, politicians trick us
Racism is still an issue and so is religion
Your God doesn’t exist, my God does and he is All-Loving
If you disagree with me I’ll kill you
Or even worse, I’ll argue you to death
92% of songs on the radio are about sex
Kids don’t play tag, they play twerk videos
The average person watches 5 hours of television a day
And it’s more violence on the screen than ever before
Technology has given us everything we could ever want
And at the same time stolen everything we really need
Pride is at an all time high, humility, an all time low
Everybody knows everything, everybody’s going somewhere
Ignoring someone, blaming somebody
Not many human beings left anymore, a lot of human doings
Plenty of human lingerings in the past, not many human beings

Money is still the root of all evil
Yet we tell our kids don’t get that degree
Their jobs don’t pay enough
Good deeds are only done when there’s a profit margin
Videos of the misfortunes of others go viral
We laugh and share them with our friends to laugh with us

Our role models today 60 years ago would have been examples of what not to be
There are places where people can legally be discriminated against Because they were born a certain way
Companies invest millions in hiring specialists to make Little girls feel like they need “make up” to be beautiful
Permanently lowering their self esteem
Because they will never be pretty enough
To meet those impossible standards
Corporations tell us buy, buy, buy, get this, get that
You must keep up, you must fit in
This will make you happy, but it never does for long

So what can we do in the face of all of this madness and chaos?
What is the solution?

We can love
Not the love you hear in your favorite song on the radio
I mean real love, true love, boundless love
You can love, love each other
From the moment we wake up to the moment we go to bed
Perform an act of kindness because that is contagious
We can be mindful during every interaction
Planting seeds of goodness
Showing a little more compassion than usual
We can forgive
Because 300 years from now will that grudge you hold against Your friend, your mother, your father have been worth it?
Instead of trying to change others we can change ourselves
We can change our hearts
We have been sold lies
Brainwashed by our leaders and those we trust
To not recognize our brothers and sisters
And to exhibit anger, hatred and cruelty
But once we truly love we will meet anger with sympathy
Hatred with compassion, cruelty with kindness
Love is the most powerful weapon on the face of the Earth
Robert Kennedy once said that
Few will have the greatness to bend history
But each of us can work to change a small portion of events
And in the total of all those act
Will be written in the history of a generation
So yes, the world is coming to an end
And the path towards a new beginning starts…
…within you

Of-course I Said It

My kind of relationship…

Over the years our world(or what we frequently refer to as the real world” and the internet(the world wide web or the web world if you may) have constantly collided in a way that nowadays we can’t tell one from the other. Examples range from where we get our news now to how we do our shopping. But most of all how many opinions are forced upon us by the “experts” in every field. Back in my day I relied upon my close friends and/or family for advice on matters such as health, love, life, sex and money issues among other things. Nowadays with a click of a button or rather a touch on a screen of what started out as a tool to make calls we can access an array of views on what matters.

During the past couple of years I’ve come to experience and play victim to such advices from internet experts. Being constantly flooded with blogs and sites that profess to know “the answer” to love and having two of my exes refer to those said platforms for guidance should count as enough reason for me to write this post. As people tend to forget that the very same sites they religiously follow are written by people learning from life just as them, I feel compelled to share my view.

There is no school of love, nor a love doctor/professor. No-one knows you or your partner the way you or your partner know each other. No two people ever behave the same regardless of what science tells you. So how can you expect someone to preach to you about their experiences in a way that absolutely without doubt relate to you? His or her love experience WILL never be your experience. NEVER. Many factors are at play here – chance, timing, society, intelligence, emotional intelligence, upbringing, friends, family, etc. And no one person can have the same experience as the other. Highly impossible.

So here I will write out my two cents worth as to what a relationship should be like, taking into consideration the factors that makes us so uniquely different to each other…

1. Look for someone who understands that sh*t happens and sometimes things don’t work out. Not someone who will promise to love and be with you forever(such a long time that is, way beyond death itself)

There is no-one who will ALWAYS love and who will never leave you. Despite their promises, its impossible to know what the future holds so how can someone give you the unknowns? Situations change and so do people, so that person who promises you to be the same forever needs serious medical attention. Every single second a change occurs so you mean to tell me you want someone to stay and feel EXACTLY the same way they feel for the rest of their lives? Maybe its you who should be checked in to a medical facility, mental one to be precise.

2. Stay away from anyone who sugar coats things and always tries to please you.

Wish it as much as you can but I promise you, you will NEVER get a 24/7 smooth relationship. Sh*t happens, sometimes by our own doings and sometimes we have no control over them. Look for someone who will be frank and open with you. If you are wrong and s/he says you are right, how will you ever change to be a better person? We need criticism and who better to give it but the one person you trust with your heart? Humans learn from their mistakes and use the lesson to do better. That’s how evolution happens. Being shown you are wrong gives you(or rather should) the chance to fix yourself and grow. The partner that always agree with you and “protect you from the truth” is actually inhibiting your personal growth.

3. Communication is NOT really the key to a good relationship. Well not the communication we talk about nowadays.

We have a variety of communication platforms nowadays. Facebook, Whatsapp, Instagram, Twitter, etc. You know what I’m talking about. When we link, or should I say upload, our relationships to 3G connections we loose all the good feeling in the process. “I love you” or “I miss you” on the phone or instant messaging applications will never be as good as when said face to face. Nor will words ever speak louder than actions. I like to playfully say “I won’t tell you I love you everyday, just know that I do and if that ever changes I will tell you”. Why can’t we have it that way? We tend to want to hear it even if actions clearly prove it. Words unlike actions can be altered and modified to the speaker and the listener’s liking. For example how many times have you typed “lol” with a straight face? Don’t you think s/he can type “I love you the same” way?

So just because s/he doesnt send Good Morning nor Good Night Texts doesnt mean they love you or miss you any less.

4. You were born complete and no matter who you loving when you die, you are gonna die incomplete; without your soul or body depending on the angle you look at it.

You need to be able to go on for at least half a day without talking to your partner and not feel incomplete. As an individual you are already complete, trust me. As a couple you should aim to be better, wiser, stronger. You should help each other grow as individuals and thus grow as a couple.

5. You can live without each other. I swear.

Usher, R. Kelly, Chris Brown, Drake, etc… They are all lying. You can live without him/her. Why lie? Let each other know your boundaries and consequences of crossing those boundaries. Why waste my time? If you can’t or won’t be what I need then move on so I can have enough time to look for a better you. Simple.

6. Movies are planned.

Relationships in movies, soapies, novels are well thought out scripts. Rehearsed, modified and planned to be perfect. Snow White, Cinderella and all those movies are lies. Pure lies. You should be too grown to be chasing faitytales. This is real life and things don’t always go according to the script. Yet with understanding you can always create your own happiness…

Remember gold and diamonds always burn before you wear them as jewelerry…

13 Contradictions from the Bible itself…

  1. Did Jesus Speak at His Hearing Before Pilate?

Matthew 27:11: Meanwhile Jesus stood before the governor, and the governor asked him, “Are you the king of the Jews?” “Yes, it is as you say,” Jesus replied. When he was accused by the chief priests and the elders, he gave no answer. Then Pilate asked him, “Don’t you hear the testimony they are bringing against you?” But Jesus made no reply, not even to a single charge— to the great amazement of the governor.

Jesus doesn’t answer the charges.

John 18:37: “You are a king, then!” said Pilate. Jesus answered, “You are right in saying I am a king. In fact, for this reason I was born, and for this I came into the world, to testify to the truth. Everyone on the side of truth listens to me.”

Jesus answers the charges.

  1. What Color Robe Was Jesus Given?

Matthew 27:28: They stripped him and put a scarlet robe on him..

Jesus is given a scarlet robe.

John 19:2: The soldiers twisted together a crown of thorns and put it on his head. They clothed him in a purple robe.

Jesus is given a purple robe.

  1. Who Carried Jesus’ Cross?

Mark 15:20b-24a: … and led him out to crucify him. And they compel one Simon a Cyrennian, who passed by, coming out of the country, the father of Alexander and Rufus to bear his cross. And they bring him unto the place Golgotha, which is, beingb interpreted, The place of a skull. And they gave him to drink wine mingled with myrrh: but he received it not. And when they had crucified him.

Simon of Cyrene carried the cross

John 19:16-18: Then delivered he him therefore unto them to be crucified. And they took Jesus and led him away. And he bearing his cross went forth into a place called the place of a skull, which is called in the Hebrew Golgotha where they crucified him.

Jesus carried the cross.

  1. When Was Jesus Crucified?

Mark 15:25: And it was the third hour, and they crucified him.

The third hour, as noted in the Amplified Bible, is 9am

John 19:14-16: And it was the preparation of the Passover, and about the sixth hour: and he (Pilate) saith unto the Jews, Behold your King! But they cried out, Away with him, away with him, crucify him. Pilate saith unto them, Shall I crucify your King? The chief priests answered, We have no king but Caesar. Then delivered he him over therefore unto them to be crucified. And they took Jesus, and led him away.

The sixth hour is Noon.

  1. What Were the Centurion’s Words at the Cross?

Matthew 27:54: When the centurion and those with him who were guarding Jesus saw the earthquake and all that had happened, they were terrified, and exclaimed, “Surely he was

the Son of God!”

Luke 23:47: The centurion, seeing what had happened, praised God and said, “Surely this was a righteous man.”

  1. Where Was Jesus on the Sixth Hour of the Crucifixion?

Mark 15:32-33: And they that were crucified with him reviled him. And when the sixth hour was come, there was darkness over the whole land until the ninth hour.

Christ was already on the cross at 9am.

John 19:14-15: And it was the preparation of the Passover, and about the sixth hour: and he saith unto the Jews, Behold your King! But they cried out, Away with him, away with him, crucify him.

It was 9am as Jesus was being judged at Pilate’s palace.

  1. What Were Jesus’ Last Words on the Cross?

Matthew 27:46: Eli, Eli, lama sabachtani? that is to say, My God, My God, why hast thou forsaken me?

(Verse 50 says he cried out again before dying, but no mention is made of spoken words.)

Luke 23:46: Father, into thy hands I commend my spirit.

John 19:30: It is finished

  1. How Long Did it Take for Jesus to Get to Heaven After the Crucifixion?

Matthew 12:40: For as Jonah was three days and three nights in the whale’s belly; so shall the Son of man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth.

Jesus wouldn’t ascend to heaven for 3 days. His journey is compared to Jonah’s 3 days in the belly of the fish.

Luke 23:42-43: And he said unto Jesus, “Lord, remember me when thou comest into thy kingdom.” And Jesus said unto him, “Verily I say unto thee, Today shalt thou be with me in Paradise.”

Jesus is to be in Paradise that very day.

  1. Who Were the First Visitors to Jesus’ Tomb?

Matthew 28:1: After the Sabbath, at dawn on the first day of the week, Mary Magdalene and the other Mary went to look at the tomb.

Mary Magdalene and the other Mary

Mark 16:1: When the Sabbath was over, Mary Magdalene, Mary the mother of James, and Salome bought spices so that they might go to anoint Jesus’ body.

The two Marys, plus a third person, Salome

Luke 24:10: When they came back from the tomb, they told all these things to the Eleven and to all the others. It was Mary Magdalene, Joanna, Mary the mother of James, and the others with them who told this to the apostles.

The two Marys, Joanna, and “the others.”

John 20:1: Early on the first day of the week, while it was still dark, Mary Magdalene went to the tomb and saw that the stone had been removed from the entrance.

Only Mary Magdalene

  1. Was the Stone Rolled Away?

Matthew 28:1-2: After the Sabbath, at dawn on the first day of the week, Mary Magdalene and the other Mary went to look at the tomb. There was a violent earthquake, for an angel of the Lord came down from heaven and, going to the tomb, rolled back the stone and sat on it.

The stone was in place when they arrived, and the angel rolled it back.

Mark 16:4: But when they looked up, they saw that the stone, which was very large, had been rolled away. As they entered the tomb, they saw a young man dressed in a white robe sitting on the right side, and they were alarmed.

The stone had already been rolled away upon their arrival, noted also in Luke 24:2 and John 20:1.

  1. Who Did the Visitors Tell of Jesus’ Empty Tomb?

Matthew 28:8: So the women hurried away from the tomb, afraid yet filled with joy, and ran to tell his disciples. Suddenly Jesus met them. “Greetings,” he said. They came to him, clasped his feet and worshiped him. Then Jesus said to them, “Do not be afraid. Go and tell my brothers to go to Galilee; there they will see me.”

The visitors were overjoyed, and they ran to tell the disciples

Mark 16:8: Trembling and bewildered, the women went out and fled from the tomb. They said nothing to anyone, because they were afraid.

They were afraid, and told no one.

Luke 24:9: When they came back from the tomb, they told all these things to the Eleven and to all the others.

They told the eleven and others.

John 20:10: Then the disciples went back to their homes, but Mary stood outside the tomb crying. As she wept, she bent over to look into the tomb and saw two angels in white, seated where Jesus’ body had been, one at the head and the other at the foot.

Mary informed Simon and the other disciple about the empty tomb, then she remained at the tomb crying.

  1. How Did Judas Die?

Matthew 27:3-8: Then Judas, which had betrayed him (Jesus), when he saw that he was condemned, repented himself, and brought again the thirty pieces of silver to the chief priests and elders. Saying, I have sinned in that I have betrayed the innocent blood. And they said, What is that to us? See thou to that. And he cast down the pieces of silver in the temple, and departed, and went and hanged himself. And the chief priests took the silver pieces and said, It is not lawful for to put them into the treasury, because it is the price of blood. And they took counsel, and bought with them the potter’s field, to bury strangers in. Wherefore, that field was called “The Field of Blood” unto this day.

Judas hanged himself

Acts 1:16-19: Men and brethren, this scripture must needs have been fulfilled, which the Holy Ghost by the mouth of David spake before concerning Judas, which was guide to them that took Jesus. For he was numbered with us, and had obtained part of this ministry. Now this man purchased a field with the reward of iniquity; and falling headlong, he burst asunder in the midst, and all his bowels gushed out. And it was known unto all the dwellers at Jerusalem; insomuch as that field is called in their proper tongue, Aceldama, that is to say, The Field of Blood.

Judas bought a field, fell down and his intestines spilled out.

  1. Where Did Jesus’ Ascension Take Place?

Mark 19:20: After the Lord Jesus had spoken to them, he was taken up into heaven and he sat at the right hand of God. Then the disciples went out and preached everywhere, and the Lord worked with them and confirmed his word by the signs that accompanied it.

The ascension took place presumably from a room while the disciples were together.

Luke 24:50-51: When he had led them out to the vicinity of Bethany, he lifted up his hands and blessed them. While he was blessing them, he left them and was taken up into heaven.

The ascension happened outside, at Bethany, near Jerusalem.

Acts 1: 12: Then they returned to Jerusalem from the hill called the Mount of Olives, a Sabbath day’s walk from the city.

The ascension happened at Mt. Olivet

Matthew 28:16-20: Then the eleven disciples went to Galilee, to the mountain where Jesus had told them to go. When they saw him, they worshiped him; but some doubted. Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”

Matthew makes no mention of the ascension at all, an undoubtedly noteworthy event.
