Some guys feel the need to be macho, while entertaining prideful ways. I’m too humble and down to earth for that. Besides, I’m 46 years old now, why should I keep acting like I’m fine?
Friends come and go but only the righteous remain and it’s only a very few when troubles begin. A real friend is one who walks in when the rest of the world walks out. The only way to have a friend is to be one…
When one’s expectations are reduced to zero, one really appreciates everything one does have, the world would be a better place if everyone tried being a lil more open minded and nonjudgmental more often. We all have flaws and our own burdens, what counts is how you carry it.
Anyhow, I’m hoping to relate to someone, meet genuine people to help me establish positive contact to the outside and bring positivity into each other’s lives. Socializing and sharing experiences helps everyone. I hope to hear yours. You can email me directly through jpay.com mobile App.
As funny as it sounds I’m now seriously taking applications for new girl. I feel I’m ready to move on & start communicating & dating again. I’m really trying to commit myself to one woman I feel is special and I can really connect with. I’m 27, single, no kids & when I’m released within two years I can bring a lot to the table. I’m educated, ambitious, loyal and loving. So basically when I do find what I’m looking for I have nothing holding me back from putting my all into it. I want someone smart, beautiful, loyal and fun. Also someone with a beautiful heart. Sex is everywhere and I prefer a mental connection first. I have around 20 months to really get to know someone before I’m released. That should be enough time to correspond, laugh, talk & maybe even visit if it gets to that level. So if you feel that’s you that can make this black guy happy, then hit me up. Lol Write me & I promise to get back to you & send a picture, so I can make sure you don’t have an Adams apple. Lol I don’t think I can receive emails so if you’re serious write me at the address provided on this profile.
Well, world, it’s definitely me again! And while everyone, both behind these walls and beyond them can find something to complain about if they are only looking for the negative, I’d just like to send a shout out to express my appreciation for the attention and the couple of responses I’ve received. I have found that some people are just sort of scratching an itch, fleeting whim, or satisfying temporary curiosity and that’s fine. I am hoping to make more long-lasting friendships, but even to those I just described, I’d like to say thank you for taking my mind and soul above and beyond this artificial gangster mentality and the emptiness I’m surrounded by and enslaves so many spirits in here.
As many people move into and out of our lives, I could always enjoy getting to know someone new, especially from places or different experiences than those I’m familiar with or accustomed to! I mentioned a feminine perspective in my profile, and I’d just like to make a note to all you ladies out there. “In the current climate” (as is so often stated during these tumultuous cultural times) I want you all to know how powerful you really are. I see with my own eyes and own experience the strength of your influence and balancing effect on both individuals and our society. We, as men, need you. You soothe our spirit by your very presence. So from all of us: Thank you.
All My Relations
It’s our understanding that the spirit of our grandfather is not breathed into two leggeds alone, but the whole created universe shares in the immortal perfection of its craftsman. From the ultimate miracle, the greatest mystery, there came a massive unifying life force that flows in and through everything that is. Therefore we are all kindred and brought together by the same creator. The flowers of the earth, the whispering winds, rocks, the murmuring trees who breathe its presence, the falling waters who chant its praise and all of creation who share with us the storms and blessings of nature. Kinship with all creatures of the earth, sky and water was a real and active principal. We see in them something of the sinless purity that we attribute to the innocent and irresponsible child. Contemplating their instincts as the mysterious wisdom from above. There was no wilderness because nature wasn’t dangerous, but hospitable, not forbidding but friendly. With the animal kingdom existed a brotherhood. So close were some to their feathered and furred relatives that in true brotherhood they spoke a common tongue. If all animals were gone, man would cease to exist. For whatever happens to the animals also happens to men. All things are connected, whatever befalls the earth, befalls the children of the earth.
Land Of The Free
A native’s worth was not estimated by possessions such as bling bling, but in what he gave away. Public giving is part of every important ceremony. A birthday for example, the honoree wasn’t lavished with presents, instead he was expected to give gifts to honor guests for attending. This tradition was properly observed at the celebrations of birth, marriage, death and when it’s desired to do special honor to any person or event. One must learn early the beauty of generosity. Traditional children were taught to give what they most cherished, so they could taste the happiness of giving. From that point they were the family giver of alms. For life to be rich and full, we must give as well as receive. Our generosity is limited only by our strength. We had no need for banks. When we had plenty of money or blankets we gave to guests of another tribe, relatives, but above all to the poor and aged. Then finally the gift to the Great Spirit, may be of little value in itself, but should carry the meaning of true sacrifice. In time gifts are returned and our hearts feel good. Our way of giving is our bank. A sense of honor pervades all aspects of native life. Let those I serve express their thanks according to their own upbringing and sense of respect.
People Of The Sun
Sunlight, our main source and provider of light, warmth and energy not only sustains all life on earth but sustains the earth itself. Life on Mother Earth evolved under natural sunlight and has existed for quite some time under its full spectrum of light. Many civilizations worshipped the sun and understood its healing powers available in its full spectrum of light, to treat physical and mental issues, a practice called Heliotherapy. For millions of years life has flourished under sunlight, which contains ultraviolet radiation. Now science claims that UV light is harmful and medical research has determined that sunlight is hazardous to people’s health and all sorts of special eyeglasses and sunscreens are marketed for protection. By spending a majority of your time under artificial lights, you may be subjecting yourself to mal-illumination. We are constantly ingesting polluted air, devitalized food and impure water, yet the most obvious nutrient light is overlooked. Ultraviolet light is a nutrient, just like a vitamin or a mineral. There are stress relieving properties in a golden sunrise. We stand erect before the advancing dawn, facing the sun as it dances upon the horizon and offer our unspoken prayer of thanks.
Who’s Your Favorite NDN
It’s true that when people are spoken of, they are characterized by qualities which attach either love or hate. People (including enemies) are either to be treated with respect or utterly crushed. Revenge will be pursued for minor offenses. Therefore the disrespect if shown to a man should be the kind that afterward the threat is eliminated. Understand war will not be avoided, only postponed to the advantage of the opposition. If you must inspire fear, do it in a way that if you cannot be loved, you can escape hate. The Chief who is revered by the people is not easy to attack. Those who conspire plan on pleasing the people by usurping the throne. But seeing that instead of pleasing the people they will offend, it would be unwise to do so. Present difficulties are easy to see. It’s the wise who use all diligence against future dangers. For if foreseen while remote are easily fixed. Yet if they are awaited to be approached, are already past cure. If you are incapable of radiating qualities that acquire dignity, the last one could do is refrain from projecting distasteful ones. For example, spitting on a sacred fire could result in illness. Almost any thought or action, if it showed disrespect to nature could have harmful consequences. The same is true of human nature.
Honest NDN/White Lies
Our fathers gave us many laws which they learned from their fathers. Many generations of transmitting from father to son a way of life. The remembrance of these was faithfully preserved by succeeding generations. They were not to be forgotten as long as the Earth remains. Such was the importance of our word and integrity that in traditional days, lying was a capitol offense. Because we understood the deliberate liar is capable of committing any violation behind the façade of cowardly untruth. The destroyer of mutual confidence was put to death so the evil could go no further. Prejudice and racial injustice was no excuse for our breaking our word. It would have been better if no treaties had been made, than to have made them and break them. Famous words, “Father Of Lies”, “I Shall Not Tell A Lie”, “Hypocrites”. We would be better pleased to see the good effects of our doctrines rather than hearing them preached. It does not require many words to speak the truth. Actions speak louder than words. If you need to explain yourself, it’s because your integrity is already in question. Always say less than necessary. Words do not last long unless they amount to something. Likewise thievery was a disgrace and if discovered, the name “Wamonon” (Thief) was an eternal stigma. On Tipi, Wigwam or Longhouse there were no locks. We did not need them.
I'm just going off the top of my mind on this. I get a lot of people asking about me and my past, and where I come from that write to me all the time, but it’s hard to share that type of pain in memories. My neighborhood where I'm from? You don’t get a lot of people coming from the mud and slums to say they made it out of that. We either die there or we go to jail and we die here. Those rare few that do make it out still got it in their blood so it’s a bittersweet thing to deal with and it’s hard to judge. I lost a lot of people. Rest in peace, G-Rap”, I miss you boy. I remember the talk we had sitting on that porch of Columbia. I'm forever chasing that business because of you. Rest in peace “Sue”, I miss you too. We grew a bond because after Rap died we both held our heads hoping we were misinformed. Rest in peace “Live Wire”, them boys on go mode because of you. Other stuff I can’t speak or write about but you know what it is. Rest in peace “Maraad”, I wish we had one time and some people in it for the glory and not the love. It’s a fine line in difference. Rest in peace “Menace”, you put it down and that’s on my G’zz! And all the real ones extinct and there’s maybe a few left. Rest in peace “Gig z”, Nightmare, Sparks and “E”; all day one shooters, man I love them boys. Keese I lost my bro and he ain’t even dead and it’s a shame. We aint eye to eye bro but just remember the day your daughter was born. I could’ve lost my life for the family. Riding around with that “drum” is what I'm doing these days. Rest in peace though. Rest is peace my brother, “Pudge” forever. The day I got the news me and my father cried together and it made our bond so much more unbreakable. I got you bro, I always keep your memory alive until we meet in the hereafter. I miss you so much boy.
Shout out to my brother “Mook”. Go easy bro, let them breathe for now. Shout out “D-boy”, “Mu”, and my gunners “Rah-rah” and “Fu the quan”. Some dudes I can mention because they on the “opp” side now. Man y’all hurt my heart. Might as well be dead to me. If I didn’t mention anyone else in the shout outs, no hard feelings, I love y’all. Oh by the way, shout out “Queen Tyshima”, and all my kids, and my father, and my partner. People ask me about my past….”ask” me about what I wanna do with what’s left of my future. Don’t ask me about nothing that can cause me pain. That’s all I have in memories. I'm from the mud. That doesn’t mean I wanna go back and visit in reflection. 100% really though.
