FINDING TRUE LOVE

It’s said that the one thing people fear most is public speaking. As a person who can sympathize with those who suffer from this fear, I disagree that it is deserving of the #1 spot. I fear more living my entire life without finding my true love. Is this a legit fear, or is it just psychological? It could be argued that the fear of public speaking is just psychological since for some the solution is simply just to envision your audience naked. Personally, I find this remedy a little strange, and not so comforting, but for a few it may work. The fear of never finding your true love has no such quick fix. Actually, there may be only one way for someone to overcome this fear: Find their true love. I believe that life is only truly given meaning when you share it with someone you love. By having this belief, I am haunted with the thought that my life will be wasted until I am blessed with someone who gives it meaning. The thought of how great life will be once that someone enters it helps to ease my anxiety and instills hope into each day I live. I would appreciate knowing my readers thoughts and opinions about this blog. I close with a maxim from one of my favorite books. “People have flaws, but what does that matter when it comes to matters of the heart? We love what we love. Reason does not enter into it. In many ways, unwise love is the truest love. Anyone can love a thing because that’s as easy as putting money into your pocket. But to love a thing despite, to know the flaws and love them too, that is rare and pure and perfect.”

MORE ABOUT ME

Well, it’s my first blog entry since I signed up on WriteAPrisoner.com. My profile has only been up for a few months and I've already met some wonderful people. Socializing with all you Free Birds out there in the “Real World” have been a blessing. I am truly grateful for every letter I get and every new friend that I make. Thank you to everybody who has written me and to all my future friends who will be writing me soon! I look forward to hearing from you! I've been incarcerated for almost four years now. It feels odd being stuck in a time-warp, standing still, watching the world go by. I cannot deny that the criminal actions of my past have made me more than deserving of this 17 year sentence. But I cannot deny all the growth I've made in these past four years alone. Prison sucks. It is a mad-house stuffed with some of the worst people imaginable, but not all of us are monsters. Some of us are changing for the better. Not because of some class or rehabilitation courses; no, guys like me continue to grow because the pain of our regret, the knowledge of our mistakes, propels us forward on the path of our enlightenment. It is the hideous awareness of my past stupidity that coaches me on my daily endeavors. “Be a better man!” it shouts, “Make better choices!” it screams. So I listen to my regret and every day I grow a little. In these past four years the inches have added up. Slowly yet surely I grow from the muck of my previous self, extending toward the sun, reaching for that light that’s buried deep within my being. So today I begin this blog on what I know: CHANGE

KNOWLEDGE IS POWER

Knowledge Is Power Understand that people who will not use their intelligence are no better than animals that do not have intelligence. Such people are beasts of burden. Steaks on the table by choice and consent. Without wisdom there is no difference between man and beast. In the view of natural selection, this form of slavery is essential. The quality of education on the reservation is of the poorest sort, so that the moat of ignorance isolating the prisoner of war class from the superior class is and remains incomprehensible to the savages. With such an initial handicap, even the bright lower class individuals have little if any hope of extricating themselves from their assigned lot in life. Due to centuries of assimilationist efforts, systematic attempts at cultural extermination and unrelenting missionary efforts, I’ll acknowledge their very first revolutionary who rebelled against the establishment and did it so effectively he gained his own kingdom. Lucifer, the title given to Satan because he brings the forbidden wisdom that apparently God didn’t want humanity to have. The light bearer, the Angelic entity presiding over the Light of truth as over the light of day. Strange and mysterious name to give to the Spirit of Darkness. The fall was the result of man’s knowledge, for his eyes were opened. Lucifer, who tempted Eve to entice Adam to eat of the tree of knowledge and thus free man from the bonds of ignorance. This is not a person but a force. It’s our mind, our tempter, our intelligent liberator and savior from pure animalism. Created for good but which may serve for evil. Fictions are necessary to the people making the truth deadly to those not strong enough to contemplate it in all its brilliance. The understanding of knowledge, science, or technology is Satanism in its purest form. Thus I embrace my damnation.

MILITARY MINDED

Military Minded A King should never appear in public with blood on his face. The Queen must never dirty her hands with ugly tasks. Yet a kingdom cannot stand without the constant squashing of enemies. A Chief must appear civilized, democratic and fair, but play by these rules too strictly or literally and be crushed by those not so foolish. Why depend on the enemy not coming? Depend rather on being ready for him. If you count on safety and prepare not for danger….Good luck. Haters wish you ill. Understand they are plotting to eliminate you. Waiting for them to play their cards is suicidal. You must destroy an enemy entirely or leave them alone. Don’t waste time striking at what seems to be a many headed enemy. Trouble is often traced to a single individual. Strike the shepherd and the sheep will scatter. In any campaign think of the dangers that are remote. If one ember is left alight, no matter how dimly it smolders, a wildfire will eventually breakout. Should anyone talk of reconciliation, declare them too cowardly to be on your side. Going strength against strength is unstrategic. Aim at weaknessess. The best moves are the ones they never see coming. Play on the psychological weaknesses of the opposition, breaking them down mentally before surrendering physically. More life bleeds out of thought than a gaping wound. Victory comes from discipline, trading and ruthlessly high standards. Yet you cannot maintain victory without public and political support. Never be in the wrong! Play the numbers game. The broader your support, the stronger your influence. Don’t create enemies in the heat of victory. Present yourself as a liberator not a conqueror. This is an adults only no limit game. If you want a friend, get a pet, but work with the skilled and competent. The proficient are promoted and the incompetent are removed. Political power comes largely from the barrel of a gun. Your arms must be ready, ready for instant action so that any potential aggressor will not be tempted to risk his own destruction. However the most skilled in warfare are those who conquer without fighting, who capture cities without laying siege. Deception is your most potent weapon.

A STRESSFUL MONTH

So I’m been given a 6 month suspension from one of my college courses and the extra time on my hands is a painful reminder of the fact that I have little control over what happens to my life here in DOC. Various struggles I’ve endured here have certainly defined my character and push my limits of patience. Thankfully, I’m learning to welcome these upsets because they help me monitor growth and change. However, I am not happy to be wasting my time where it could be spent so much more productively; which leads me to question why the opportunity for schooling has to be earned & maintained vs. encouraged and facilitated at all costs. In the free world there’s a totally different dynamic but here in prison you’d think that as long as an inmate is ambitious enough and determined to make the changes that need to be made in her life that perhaps a different approach could be taken to ensure her course completion. At the very least, I might have been asked for an explanation of my behavior or even given benefit of the doubt that certainly exists. A warning even for a first encounter with anything disciplinary. Instead I have been slammed by both Corrections and the College who I understood to be ethically committed to my rehabilitation. Hmmm…. It’s been a stressful month but I’m over the discouragement and looking forward to sleeping in.

CONTESTING MY FIRST IMPRESSION

When you first look at my pictures…what do you see? Come on, be honest…There’s no reason to lie…A thug? A hoodlum? An uneducated individual…Wrong, wrong and I’m sorry to say, “wrong again”…See, you have to look beyond your initial thought…past the stigmas (clothes, skin, etc.) and stereotypical outlooks life has somehow branded into the minds of society. I’m just like you, neither better nor lesser…An equal! With the only difference being our choices…The motorcycle picture was the beginning of my free spirit era…A time where I was in search of the real me 2004…Think rebellious and carefree, a hippie without the drums and alcohol…Not saying that every hippie does either one...(smiles) A kid looking for adventure, a thrill, something to get the adrenaline pumping…Now fast forward a couple years 2007…Life is good! I have a great income, with minimal worries. I’m at the beach with no thought of getting in the water…beside me (which you don’t see) is one of my younger brothers and a group of his friends…That day was for them, to show there was more to life than struggle…That I cared, if no one else did…And to push them toward choices better than my own…A day of fun and laughter…One we’ll all remember! Now when you look at my pictures…What do you see?

ALLEN'S BLOG

I’m really reflecting on my music as a lyricist. I have recently sent BMI an application to be a professional Ghostwriter. I feel I have what it takes to write. I really express myself as I feel at the time, I have been on 3 units since I got locked up ion 2014 in Texas. There hasn’t been a unit any one can say I don’t have talent as you can see everything I put on my profile is true. I have lived a fast-paced life with lot’s of laughs & heartbreak, but I want to channel that all into something positive so I just want the public to know that I can write any type of music but I’m best at R & B / Rap. It comes naturally for me. I let my 18 year old daughter know that I would like her to sing my music, but she’s young and doesn’t understand the talent I have, so I’m paying $250,00 to BMI for the rights. I know I can influence the world so what better place than here. I have 150 lyrics at home. I cross my fingers that I can fulfil my talent. If you are a lyricist, get with me, but if not I would like to share my insights with you about anything, but would like to write to you about life in prison with this fire in my soul for music. $250.00 is a lot commission but my heart comes first, stomach second…right?

CHANGE

Change is inevitable. We, as individuals, and society as a whole, are in a constant state of change. I’ve come to feel life is an experience of events, evaluated and defined by our perceptions. Many times we require the aide of others, to open our eyes to the truth, to the proper perceptions of life’s events. As I’ve grown older, had aide, and experienced more, I’ve learned to evaluate things more clearly. Learning to recognize and remove the excuses and justifications, and being able to see the truth of things. I feel life is about learning, growing and helping, but one also needs an open heart, a clear mind, and faith that change will lead to the success and safety we seek. I feel we either evolve, and our changes are constructive towards our betterment. Or, we get caught in a destructive cycle, stagnating, or worse, devolving. The truth is that I need success in all the different aspects of life, and to achieve that I need clarity understanding, and the ability to change. For I’m not perfect, merely an imperfect being needing growth, understanding and enlightenment.

FORGIVENESS

Forgiveness~~ is what I'm asking for. I know tomorrow isn’t promised to anyone, so I hope my today forgives me. I look in the directions of the future, with my past in the rearview mirror. On my way to travel the world, on these many roads that life provides. Some of these roads in my life have been so perilous at times, to the point I've almost became physically non-existent. But for some reason, the physics of this Earth decided to be in my favor. I hope it’s not too late for my apology because only God knows my sincerity is my only credential. I will forever be who I am, and who I will always be a truth that has been convicted and remain under my oppression, because I refuse to be cold anymore. I just want my heart to be filled with the warmth of love and to spread it to everyone! If I had it in my power, I would make this entire world smile. Since I can’t right now, then one smile at a time will have to suffice. Sincerely yours, Jaleel
