No, I Don't Pick My Afro...

**For the last few days I have been sportin' my afro. Not as big as Erykah's.***

Okay!!! I am leaving for Tanzania in less than 7 days and I am excited. I can't think of any better way to end a divorce than flying to the continent (for the first time) and participating in a spiritual trek! I have been thinking the last few days that I am on a life changing journey and it started some time ago. My biggest lessons was thinking that someone else had the key to life - that other people knew more about life than I did. I know we are not meant to be small on the planet - we all have such important contributions to the healing of our planet. Restoration and healing is what is needed and if someone is trying to lead you on a path that requires you to do anything other than that - they are just cheating you.
Last night some friends had a small gathering and wished me well on my journey. I believe you get to take the journey when you are ready - when you have let all of what you thought was the way - fall away and let Spirit take control. I am going to the continent in a very humble way - I am not bringing a lot and I am not expecting a lot - I am just there to be at the Master's Feet. Simply breathing the air will heal me - if there is more than that I will be grateful.
Late last year I met with a Ghanaian elder who was visiting from the Bongo Northern Region of Ghana. He provided me with insights that helped me along this journey. He told me that God will bring me to Africa. He told me other things - things that helped me leave my abusive marriage and helped me see that I indeed have purpose that must be fulfilled. What I have to do will be important to many of us. This is why I keep repeating that we are all important parts of this world healing - something that each one of us has to do will complete the circle. This is why healing is important, this is why living in truth is important - even if up until now all you have done is lied and cheated - today is a new day. Work towards truth and see how your life can change. It doesn't mean you won't have to be responsible for what you have done but you can begin to make things better and radically heal yourself.

Tao 33
Knowing others is intelligence;
knowing yourself is true wisdom.
Mastering others is strength;
mastering yourself is true power.

If you realize that you have enough
you are truly rich.
If you stay in the center
and embrace death with your whole heart,
you will endure forever.
