truthful perceptions: light…

img_0011-copy3

The wise Man draws more advantage from his enemies, than a fool from his friends; As light is the contrast to darkness, so in life will come the envy of friends and the hatred of enemies;

Being caught between these two fires is never good, yet we look to the Christ within as the active instrument of all peace, forgiveness and reconciliation;

The same creative force who set the symphony of the universe in motion, grows the bones of a child in the womb and decrees the boundaries for every Sea;

This infinite intelligence daily affirms our Spirit to know and declare – If GOD Be For Us, Then Who Can Be Against Us; Love Always & Keep Looking Up. IJPN ~ In JESUS Precious Name.

truthful perceptions: principles…

DSC_0006

LOVE: By what parlance has this word through the ages been used and abused, politicized & proselytized, resigned and reserved by those whose hearts were either sincere and contrite, or scandalous and ill willed. Through JESUS Christ we have the personification of GOD’S love to behaviorally guide us through every challenge  life brings before us.  

JOY: Is it not written that within this spiritual genetic trait is our strength in, of and through the Lord? Go into your labor of dependable time working with intense deliberation on your passion using this attribute to leaven your bread. Allow this attribute, this wonderful fruit of the spirit to mitigate anxiety and properly dissipate fear from your heart, mind and soul.

PEACE: Through the journey of discovery it is essential for your mindset to remain focused on GOD. This indispensable protocol of spiritual genetics denies the invasion of your mind from distractions and protectively envelopes the soul, making it impervious to the spirit of depression. The scriptures exhort us to practice and believe;

“I will keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee”.

Therefore it is imperative to know that as you keep your mind on, in and with GOD during your process of creation, GOD has His Spirit immersed in, of and throughout the process of your creation. Stay Blessed, Peaceful & Anointed. IJPN ~ IN JESUS Precious Name.

truthful perceptions: balance…

SketchGuru_20131107135850

Life requires balance.

The areas of time management are not exempt. As in most things it is the habitual practice of an imbalance that endangers the daily peace of the individual. To find inner balance and its ensuing tangible peace one should affirm the necessity of implementing positive time management within their life’s regimen. It is said, “All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy, yet all play and no work makes him something greatly worse”.

The adage is clear as to the significance of placing priorities of work and leisure rightly divided within one’s life. Yet deeper still is the importance of defining the discipline. There is simply no replacement for the value of work.

I speak not of the regulatory 9 to 5 position most of us pursue and retain in order to pay the bills and keep food on the table. As important as that is, this book’s purpose is to subscribe to the inner architect residing within all Souls who read these words in order to understand the power within your minds eye to both challenge and change your future, for there is no future brighter than the present. We each have a vision of how our lives can, could and should be made better. For all who are living that dreamality (experiencing your dream + living your reality = dreamality) life cannot be a grander place to both work and play.

Yet, for the majority there is no causality for the expression of freedom. Other than a yearning seed of belief through the Word of GOD given every Sunday in church, do the masses experience any true change of their position in life. This is now the time to begin designing the most significant concept of your life and being entrusted to supervise the greatest enterprise you will ever manage. By contrast, the time required to endeavor the power of your imagination is miniscule in comparison to weekly leisurely exploits as trivial as watching television. The need to flip the script has never been greater nor the rewards more relevant to one’s prosperity.

truthful perceptions: architect…

IMG_3225 copy

Every architect dreams to create the finest and tallest building for the entire world to behold. Every building engineer dreams to unfold the quasar of their imagination after years of dedicated study in school and countless engineering schematics and model diagrams. The one common denominator shared by these persons of creativity the world over is the shared biblical principle of their occupation.

That principle is that you must first have a solid foundation. Regardless to how much money, manpower, city permits, and insurance cost for the massive project it may require, they first started with the geological analysis of the proposed area of land for a solid foundation of their creation.

As the architects and building engineers of our own lives, we too require a precise and self-perceptible analysis conducive to a solid foundation that remains impervious to spiritually violent weather, flexible to extenuating circumstances and immune to human ridicule. One that is secure to both the earthquakes of our wrong choices and obedient to the inner vocal calls to stop the madness of our journey. A solid foundation irrespective of what torrential rains or typhoon floods may lash upon it and will still continue to stand undeterred.

The foundation I speak of is the confidence of the human Spirit in concert with the power of the human Voice believing in our inherent God given ability to succeed over adversity. Separately these entities are dynamic, yet limited in both scope and nature. Thus it is logical to presume that GOD through wisdom created both to harness the strength of each other not simply for the benefit of the body, but rather the whole earthly life of the Soul.

Learn to preach the power of the human spirit, minister the invincibility of our Lord & Savior JESUS Christ and daily practice His message for us to sincerely love one another, as we genuinely love ourselves.

truthful perceptions: character…

IMG_0011 copy

Real men court, date, become engaged to and marry integrity for a lifetime. Fake/abusive men have already divorced themselves from the possibility of even knowing who she is.

You can never step up as a Man, if you’re knocking down a Woman. You can never improve yourself as a Man, if you’re verbally abusing a Woman. You can never better yourself as a person and advance inspirational thoughts in others, by destroying the life of a Woman.

Integrity is a lifestyle, not a choice. It is not a demand, but a dialect of human language invisibly spoken in the form of a selfless love and respect for all life, especially the life of your wife/intimate partner. Most men have integrity genetically encoded in their DNA and will absolutely protect and defend all life. They never abuse women and behave as a moral leader in their home and at the workplace.

Integrity speaks loudest through your actions, not your words. Not your frequency to make promises, but rather through your actions as a Man in keeping them. Though a Man may fall a thousand times, if he is a Man of integrity, the world will always lift him up.

It’s not the size of the headstone on a grave that determines the significance of the person buried, but the number of people who come and desire to come to pay their respects. What man has never stopped to reflect on how he wishes to be remembered long after he has left this Earth?

Integrity insures your legacy to be one that is spoken of with endearing love and respect from your children and creates a lasting impact on everyone that loves you for the rest of their lives.  

Let your recognition to be so closely aligned with integrity that others will use it among the first descriptive words when speaking of you. Let your character be so undivided to integrity that liars even become inspired to change their ways because of your influence.

Integrity is not a fanciful notion, but a dutiful necessity to this thing called life. She gives you everything that is noble, nurturing and noticeable to those around you. She plays no favorites and will expose you as a fraud should you desire to cheat on her. 

You simply cannot possess Integrity and be an abuser of Women at the same time. BUT as a Man, you can be ever loved, respected, protected and cherished by those who love you, through having true and lasting integrity.

truthful perceptions: impact…

IMG_3502

It is to the expectation of God’s daily delight that we would earnestly seek through sacrifice, devotion and dedication to replicate the mind of JESUS. For in so doing we are of one mind distinctly innate to one core set of values based on the precepts, principles and edicts of His message of love.

Yet, we must allow this love to be seasoned fluently with humility to the edifying of one another through encouragement and support of what goals and talents we each possess for the greater good of the whole. This notion does not call upon us to negate nor deny our own individual abilities, but rather seek to affirm our own God-given inner knowledge that we are neither forgotten nor set aside in God’s eyes.

For His Word say’s that He will never leave us nor forsake us-1 Kings 8:57. This practice of lifting up each other higher than our self is for the benefit of the greater mind of God to unfold the mystery of His Will towards us. By loving our neighbor as we love our self, the ensuing equation is harmony, justice and respect for every one in the community of humanity.

This attitude slowly absorbs us into that spirited mind of Christ we seek. An arrogant mind surveys the landscape seeking what minds it contrives as weaker than its own, in order to indignantly dominate through insidiously demanding, what can you do for me?

Whereas the Christ-centered mind will always endeavor upon what things it must and can do unto others as the servant of God.

Neither sheepishly or in subservience to man but rather, in a dignified contemplation of transforming, that which is evil to make good, that which is abhorrent to make pure, and that which is of none effect to glean enlightenment, in truthful knowledge of their value in order to make a positive impact.

truthful perceptions: vanity…

IMG_3502

Vanity provides only a bandage, never a cure. Any attempt to procure healing from its wings are fleeting for it contains no substance conducive to restoration, no intrinsic remedy to improve, nor any ingredients to mend the heart to procure true forgiveness unto itself.  

The absence of vanity leads to the essence of compassion, which is the inheritance and importation of wisdom. No man cometh unto the Father, but through JESUS. For the heart of Christ cannot go against itself and in this manner truly sifts and searches the human heart coming unto God for humility and the absence of pride and vanity necessary to be in the presence of God.

Vanity in the human heart has paved the way for countless souls to create the very hell of their day-to-day reality. Much worse to those who never learned the lesson of obedience before going to their graves or were prematurely brought there resulting from the very vanity that plagued their lives.

In studying the Heart of Christ we see that JESUS neither displayed nor possessed one iota of vanity, but instead frequently taught about the dangers of both riches and idolatry, summarily contradicting the plethora of prosperity preachers on the scene today.

Pursuing the heart of Christ reveals the true riches God would have us to abide in and rely upon. The wealth of a rich man is his strong city, yet it is the meek which shall inherit the Earth. Cities fall and eventually crumble to dust, but the Earth is the Lord’s and the fullness thereof. The things of vanity may thrive for the temporary things of glory, but possessing the heart of Christ leads to a peace that passes all understanding.

truthful perceptions: dreams

Russel-147

A dear friend asked the question where would you like your dreams to take you this week. In light of the organized chaos the world is currently in, this is what came to me:

I would like my dreams to take me to a place of enlightenment. A world where war is non-existent, cancer and all diseases were wiped-out long ago, politicians are extinct, love is mandatory, hate is quarantined and laughter has no cure.

A world where all children are trained to be as musicians, artists and dancers and all musicians, artists and dancers perform as freely joyous as children.

A world where the pursuit of money is pointless and gold has no value, but persons who employ charity, selflessness, respect and love are considered the wealthiest of all.

A world where nature knows no pollution in the waters or the skies; and where the oil of the earth remains in the ground and is not spilled into the seas;

A place where all women are loved as queens and not abused and all men are made kings by the peace we sing.

A place where animals are not endangered and guns were never invented; A world where the words genocide, racism, bigotry, slavery, sexism and jihad have never been seen before much less ever practiced;

A place where the tears of GOD flow because of the love we give to each other as a human family, and not the harm we do to one another because of ignorance and fear.

Well this is just a small portion of the dream of where I would like to be, but I guess I’d better wake-up to the nightmare of reality this present world is in.

May GOD Help Us ~ IJPN.

truthful perceptions: machines

IMG_3429

Machines can either be our best friend in the gym or our worst enemy. One of my new clients wanted to proudly demonstrate to me all that she had learned. She placed herself on the squat machine and proceeded to stack two 45lb weights on either side.

 She began her exercise lowering herself too quickly, not breathing properly and then pushing herself up using her toes. The strain on her face was enough for me to stop her by her third rep. She thanked me as she said the pain has always been unbearable when doing that exercise.

She explained this is how she learned this machine from her last trainer. I explained to her this particular exercise targeting both the hamstrings and butt is best achieved by placing both feet shoulder length apart and flat-footed.  This provides balance and first and foremost safety from injury. Never lock your knees on your way up and keep a slow but intense fluidity to your reps. 

 I explained to her to never circumvent God-given common sense for a personal trainer. If it hurts when you’re doing it, then something is wrong.

Whatever machines peak your curiosity, make sure you ask gym personnel for the proper directions in how to use it. Avoid serious injury by always placing your safety first. As the saying goes: ”Check yourself, before you wreck yourself…”

truthful perceptions: victory

IMG_3466

Victory. “I have the victory…” is much more than a church cliché. It’s above and beyond bumper sticker status and it doesn’t come cheap. To put it bluntly, it’s the boundary line between your success in obtaining your fitness goals and repeated failure in giving up, once again.

Your victory is not determined by how early you get up in the morning, but rather your convicted discipline in getting to bed at the same time every evening in supplying your body ample rest and rejuvenation.

Your victory is never to be acquired by consuming acidic drink’s, sugary foods, sodium filled meals or clandestine visit’s to McDonald’s because you believe no one is looking.

Your victory is measured by persistence and determination to practice proper rest, proper nutrition and proper exercise. Discipline is the price we pay for the dynamic of a healthy lifestyle. That above everything else is what defines our victory.

Not the completion of a goal, but the continuation of building on the success the pursuit of that goal brings to us. The victory is always in learning how to enjoy the journey, more than the destination.

There is no death to ever acknowledge, but rather the revealing of the remarkably renewable spiritual, mental and physical you, who is able to love-God-through-loving self and unveiling the inner workings of all you were created to be, one workout at a time…..in Victory.  Love All-Ways & Keep Looking Up.
