Vonj – Words of songs Chapter 5 “This is the Life”

 These are all expressions that came through my heart. I have written these pieces to fit in within a musical format. What you read here has already been musically recorded, I hope you enjoy these messages family. Love; Vonj.

THIS IS THE LIFE

I wake up in the morning storm

Ain’t no sun within my reach

Sometimes life can seem like its going nowhere

I trust my heart and live today

Even if tomorrow is the same

Perseverance is my middle name

There’s no way I will get tired

all I can do is abide and ride

hoping one day I will say

MANTRA.

This is the life x2

Second part.

Do you feel your life is tough

and you think you had enough

situation feels like its never ending

Turn that into positive

when your down you can only rise

I promise that a breakthrough is in your path

struggle builds a stronger heart

pass the test there is reward

and one day you will say

MANTRA

This is the life x4

Nowstory Pt 1 “Time”

Dear family, I greet you all with grace glory and hope, Grace is the experience I humbly share with you, Glory in the direction I would like to enlighten you in, and Hope in that forever the truth will stand strong.

Day-to-day I continue to look into each aspect of our general disposition in life. On the things that I am unfamiliar with I try to understand, and on the things that are familiar to me I try to understand even further. We must learn to double-check on the familiar in order to be able to shed undeniable wisdom whenever we speak on a subject. research is crucial for our growth, first hand experience is even more important, and even though one individual may come at you with a life lesson, it is important for us never to accept the information through belief but only through our own privet study of the particular lesson, this is sound right reasoning, as someone else’s half truth passed on to you may make you live a lie. take everything you read or hear with a pinch of salt family.

One aspect of disposition we seem to be stuck in is the precept of time. Now here is a question, many of us do not know what time is meant to be, or whether or not it really exists, and if time does exist should we perceive time in a different way in order for us to synchronise better with our true nature?. I pose this question because it seems to me that the closer we are to the commandments of time the further apart we become from nature. We can see that in everything we term as “great” encompasses the perceptive principles of timelessness, we can find this principals within the family of Architecture, Art, Music etcetera, but why do we say this?.

In so-called modern civilisation we use the numbers within the clock to tell us when to begin something and when to end something. may this be classified as human beings tampering with a universal order?. Who has ever heard of the phrase… “Time is money and money is time”?, We are set in this vicious circle where we need to be on time to get paid so we can pay our bills on time. Every institution is governed by money and time, So what state of mind has this put us in? Rush, impatience, intolerance, which leads us into frustration and anger which ultimately becomes destruction and death, remember we serve “time” when we are in prison, are we being mentally imprisoned by time?. In this we can identify that time certainly exists in our minds, but was this enforcement of time natural to the universal order or is this something that was man-made?.

remember all along I am speaking in a state of mind that does not look to material things with desire, so we can forget about big house’s and fast cars because those things that we work so hard to get make us live fast and die young. I am thinking of the most optimal way the human mind and body was naturally designed to flourish. Indeed the body and the mind can adopt into different standards of living, but I have yet to see the body and the mind evolve, the natural way of living may be the only way that our minds and bodies will be able to evolve from its current state, instead we seem to devolve as we revolve around the repetition of time.

There must be an alternative way in which we can think of time, as where time is abstract we cannot trace it, and where we can trace it “the clock” we cannot synchronize with it because everything pure comes in variables, from your heartbeat, to the earths revolution around the sun, in fact the very music that harmonises with our psyche is un-clocked..(this is a study I will get into in part 2). The clock only serves for the means of practical indication, if we look closely we may understand that this means of external indication may have made us lose our natural instincts. One may pose that we need the calendar, but maybe if we were keen on meeting particular events then surely practically counting the nights following up to the event would be nothing too arduous, I am sure then most events would certainly cater to be worth attending. but we need a clock?, how would we know the time of day? but do we? maybe if we paid more attention to the skies we would be able to naturally judge any part of now. so what else do you need the clock for, to time your cooking? can we smell when something has cooked? or are we in the living room watching TV and need an alarm to know when your food is ready?, So you need to catch a flight? if we really need to travel 8 thousand miles our reason must be profound, maybe we do not need to take flight on an object to travel long distances, may we tap into something that is within us to make this possible? but as we cannot even build any means of physical transportation we are currently stomped on this. if your body needs an external signal or reminder to act on something then we should automatically know that we are acting against our nature and intern the light we are all born with will burn out on earth quick. remember this every time your alarm wakes you up, every time the recess or church bell rings and when your 9 gets your mind down to 5 everyday.

We should start to live by what is “first” in us, and not “Second” out of us, We can prove that Energy never dies and only changes, and if we perceive the body and the soul to be immortal then why do we measure ourselves according to revolutions earth travels around the sun?, do we know that this measurement changes every year as earth continues to slow down?.

The saying that “age is just a number” is to be taken more seriously than the vague interpretation we use to make us feel young, why do we want to be young when we get to a certain number and when we are children we want to be adults?, what would the world be like if we all had the child like desire to feel greater? this idea is surprisingly revolutionary in accordance to today’s man-made standards, Jimi Hendrix once said that a man should not be measured according to his age but to the amount of miles he has travelled in his mind.. can we come to fathom this idea?. When your physical and spiritual birthday happened only once why do we strife for repetition?, We should be at constant change in progression just like the universe around us.

Should we throw time out to trash? not necessarily, we can utilise it but it is never any means to revolve your world around it, however we should try to aim to live in a natural path of timelessness, If we were not worried about the length on which we have to educate or be educated, hear music or play music, gain enlightenment or enlighten another we would have more life in us then we do now. To become timeless one must first begin to question who’s watch one is running on, and if it is keeping you fully aware and attentive on both realms of existence “the conscious and subconscious. break out of the circle and be free to spiral up in the infinite progression of life.

(part 2 coming soon)

Joy and gladness to all

Do not follow me! Know thy self & walk with me

Do you know who you are? can you face your truth?

Here we are in this mortal body, but we cannot even begin to identify what makes the body what it is, let alone come to fathom the power of our brain, mind, spirit and soul, The different dimensions encompassing our very existence. we express vague phrases like “I know this like the back of my hand” do you really know the back of your hand?. We need to master ourselves first, and only then would we stand the chance of understanding something outside of ourselves.

It is time for us to begin to realise more of our own being, most of us in this day and age have lost our sense of identity, and so we get caught up in the external, looking too much into labels and titles while overlooking the reality of deeds, and truths being presented to us. We must be humble enough to submit to experienced minds for our mental growth, just as a child should look up to be guided by his or her parents, However no matter how great we perceive someone or something to be we should never fall in to idolatry. Idolatry and self neglect are one in the same. Idolatry of a person place or thing is the most lethal poison one can ever consume, not only because we start developing limitations to our mental growth by giving up our glory, but we can also be left subjected into beliefs without question of what truths or lies are being instilled upon us, this is a cause for mental destruction. What is more disturbing is that the things or the persons we idolize tend to be outside our family circle, for instance, they are too many names in the past and present that are idolised merely because of their popularity, but in the popularity of the names and titles we seem to have lost the messages behind those labels no matter how important those messages where.

We all know that TV and now the Internet is the new cocaine that we are addicted to, so everything we view in the box we seem to be infatuated by, thus music entertainers, actors, athletes and comics have become the gods we worship, and even more sickening is that when these famous individuals pass away we still cannot let them rest in peace, and so now the money oriented entertainment industry is wise to this, and industries can continue making annual profits with bastardized versions of unfinished works the deceased left behind.

Now the industry is pushing the envelope even further… The technology of the hologram has enabled companies to bring back the image of “past stars” into live events, the invention of the hologram is one of the new methods used to make big money, now live shows can be made possible without the need of the entertainer being present. We have already seen, Michael Jackson, Tupac Shakur, Elvis Presley, selling out shows after their deaths through the hologram. Sadly this is only the beginning, soon you will witness a new industry unfold where nothing is real.

I envision the red carpet in the future with nothing but holograms and robots, where X men and women of the past will be brought live into award ceremonies promoting merchandise and fashion brands etcetera, it will become possible for past sporting events to be re enacted live and all this will be made possible not because of the advancement of technology but because of the demand of a people with no imagination to move forward, History may literally repeat itself soon. We do not appreciate we worship, we do not respect we idolize, and the more we do this the further we will lose ourselves and the more we will become subject to exploitation by the money makers.

Nine times out of ten , fanatics have less of a problem than the people they idolize, for example If one was to step into the shoes of the rich and the famous for one day you will see how imbalanced their lives really are, So the responsibility falls on the hand of the majority to open their eye’s, for most of those who are in the lime light like politicians, entertainers and the pope are nothing but products, thus why they may be reluctant to show the world that indeed everyone has an equal potential for mental growth.

To begin to start defining ourselves we must first learn to tell the difference between what is real and what is false, Ask yourself if a picture you may see of a person in any mainstream magazine is real, Or does photo shop define this persons beauty?, is that a real singing voice your hearing on the radio? or is there a certain threshold of auto-tune in the mix?, is that real & authentic music or is it a sample from the past?, Is that scenery in the film real or is this computer generated imagery? Is that natural food or is this processed?, is that a true story in the news paper or is this propaganda? is that politician going to positively change anything or is he or she buying your vote? did your favourite sporting team really win the game out of effort and passion or was money the power that made the losing team throw the match. find the differences and you will realise the reality we are living in.

So brothers and sisters it is time to leave behind names and titles and start to hear the message. the truth is embedded in you, and as an analogy, each letter I typed on this document was always there in the formula of my computer, I just needed to type into the keyboard for them to appear in the graphics. Same with the truth, every truth we need is all in us we just need to tap into our essence for its manifestation.

Life is simple, indeed I say again, simple!, but because we were fooled somewhere along the way, we were left confounded, and for those whom happened to be lucky enough to have the right teacher around them early in their lives, in adulthood they are left outcast by society. so humanity suffers regardless whether or not we know the truth.

Long ago someone asked me an interesting question, how do we know that the truth is meant for this planet? he went on to say that maybe this is not a dimension where truth can ever reign supreme, maybe we are in hell and don’t know it, and this planet was designed for people to lose themselves, get Fooled, Lied to, Broken and Hurt, and there are other dimensions where truth prospers over all things. at first I laughed as the question was presented in a somewhat comical fashion, but this is a philosophical question, hey what if right? I must be honest and express to you that I would have believed this theory if and only if I did not know myself. My perception is that in this world we embody the power of choice, we can dictate upon our environment, and anything we can imagine we can make possible thus not deeming this world hell, but in our choices lie a responsibility which many men have fallen short, this is why we may see more bad than good, and the test for mankind may be to see if we have the power to overcome the negativity in order for us to be strong enough to withstand infinite positivity along the stages of our soul and spirit, life after death. This may be one way of justifying the meaning of our reality.

Know yourself and all will be answered. If I asked you what your super-power was on earth what would you say?, We can evidently see that we have not reached any physical boundaries yet, and I know that there is a potential to harness within ourselves a greater power not seen before on earth. unfortunately history has proved that only when something catastrophic happens to the world then this is when more people are likely to rise up and awaken a golden age, I am here to say why wait for calamity to strike before rising up your mind?.

Where did your powers go? a long time ago, art was pure, the music was good, morality was respected, and even then we had much room to grow. The question is if I wrote something that could change humanity forever, the formula to eternal life, unlocking the doors of time travel, revealing a means of free energy through natural resources, a cure for all disease, revealed all of Histories truths and lies, what would be the point to reveal this to a people who are not ready?, a people caught up in spite, hate, jealousy, greed, lust and thirst for blood?, understand why many great stories were told in forms of metaphors and allegories, if any great message of truth was plain in translation then I know for sure 2 things would be, the death of humanity or a paramount progression in truth, in other words either eternal damnation or heaven, but confusion is keeping us alive but living a lie. What place do you want to dwell? if you want to know the answer, Know yourself brothers & sisters. and hear me when I say that in this moment truth is what we need.

Stay Still in Silence, Elevate your Essence

In reflection upon my previous posts I would like to first thank each and every one of you whom have been supporting my writings and keeping up to date with the content. I appreciate and take to heart every comment written on this website, and I hope that with each blog I can continue to keep you “the reader” feeling refreshed through each added content.

My message is simple, Love and unity, and as I take you through my journey of self discovery I would like to continue to show and prove how this philosophy can help elevate each one of us no matter our position in life. The more we love and unify the greater we will become as a people, and also the closer we will get to the state of true mastery, I almost stumbled and said “the state of perfection”, however I now see perfection as being like a mirage of the garden of Eden in the middle of a desert, We die each time we think we are perfect, like how one in the middle of the burning desert would be dying of thirst and alluded to think he found a river stream and as he gets close and bows down to sip the water reality suddenly strikes him and he finds himself kissing dry sand. A true masters destination doesn’t lie upon satisfaction, but toward elevation. and elevation comes through knowing one’s self.

It is innate to every man and woman to have the need to grow, And it is through this that we can perceive awareness of what is right and what is wrong in all degrees, However We have been painfully mislead out of ourselves through the influence of society. There was a time when family values where strong and paramount, And wisdom was handed down to the young making it harder for young minds to be destructed by confusion and easier for them to pertain to paths of truth and righteousness. Now we have come to lose what was so very natural to us and adopted lower vibrational ways of thinking, With very little knowledge and understanding we now show pride, ego, arrogance which all equates to ignorance.

Many of us need a lesson in humility. Through my experience I have known some of the most prideful and egotistic individuals you can ever come across in life, I can attest to the facts that their attitude brought them nothing but pain and strife. So in the line of humble individuals I stand firmly!, I realise that even when one becomes tired of learning (having the want to settle in a comfortable place in your mind), We must push ourselves to turn another leaf and witness yet another chapter in the book of our life.

As we begin to look into ourselves we will come to find that we need to experience as much as we can along our journey, however sometimes an experience doesn’t have to be first hand, if we subscribe to the gift of discernment we can avoid some rough roads but yet in keeping the knowledge that those rough roads did exist. You will start noticing that your patterns of life will positively improve according to the depth of your discernment. through this we have the ability to look into our lives just like how one can look into a map, you can then study your route and know what turns are irrelevant, what turns will get you lost, or what turns are right and exact for the growth of your life. if you find yourself then you will discover a wealth of information coming to you in a form of revelation.

But how can we find ourselves in this day and age? they are a few existing ways but one of the key ways is through “Silence”, this has become nearly obsolete in our day and age, Even when we go to bed we fall asleep with our headphones blasting away, and when we think we are in silence we are still thinking, Thus we have become unable to listen to the guidance of our spirit. one analogy of this can be explained when we are in conversation with an individual and someone is trying to tell you an important message that will help you but at that time either our brain drifts off to another planet or while the person is talking we are not digesting anything but only thinking about what we are going to say next, thus at the point we have lost a whole wealth of useful information and we continue living our lives carelessly and keep repeating the same mistakes.

In the name of growth and self discovery tone down your thoughts, attitudes and emotions and turn up your Silence, and let your spirit feed and reveal to you your next chapter in your journey.

Peace & Love family

Passion Vs. Obsession

In the spiral of life sometimes we can become lost within what we do, thus formulate negative habits while at the same time believing that what we are doing is correct according to the chosen path that we are on. We all want to be established within the works we choose to carry out, however we must come to the knowing of what becomes a passion and what becomes an obsession.

When I was in my teens and going on into my early 20s I knew who I was, a passionate musician, and I wanted to be the best at what I was doing, However it came to a point where I became obsessed within what I was doing but totally oblivious to my problem, I thought I was only strengthening my chances for success.

Everyday I would practice on my instrument for 6 hours straight, and if I had a day where I did not put in those exact hours or more I actually believed that this made me a worse musician than I was the previous day, This is when my passion turned into an obsession, and I discovered this the hard way after I fell down some steps and injured 3 figures, making it impossible to play any instrument for a term. Inside I felt broken, and I was not looking forward to getting back into playing as at the time I knew It would take me a long-term to get back to my previous standard of playing. Days came and went and I started to manoeuvre my thinking toward a more positive direction, focused on other things that would later on broaden my general understanding of music and life. When I started playing again I found that not only had I become more fluent within my style of playing but through inspiration I found new ways of approaching my instrument, setting me miles ahead creatively and technically from the state I was in before my injury.

I determined that If I was born with a passion and I wanted to improve on what I did, then it was not about how long I spent practising it, it was about how much I could control my passion. One must come to a holistic way of thinking if you really want to succeed in any particular practice. Balance is key for the growth of anyone’s potential, But Obsession kills the mind, and your gifting’s cannot be birthed with an absent mind. Obsession is also the father of urge, and it was my urge for repetition that prevented me from progressing, human beings are not created to repeat anything, this is one of the things that separates us from the animal kingdom, repetition as a term can very easily equate to stagnancy. We must be clear that there is a difference between having a need to do something and having the urge, when we need to do something we should find ways to answer it, However when we have the urge to do something we must question it.

This philosophy can apply to and indeed crossover all forms of day to day living, Can you miss your favourite TV program? can you choose at will when not to smoke? can you skip one saturday night out with your friends and spend it with your family?, Are you really in the driving seat?..

Detract your obsessions by thinking holistically and you will be able to successfully nurture your true passion.

Can you flip your record into your Future?

Love & Unity Family!, I made a new self discovery today of which I hope will positively inspire you all………………

It all started when I was going through all my old music records, I stumbled upon a cassette tape, Side A of the tape was labelled “Now” and side B was titled “Future”, All I knew is that the cassette label was hand written by me when I was 13, I knew I was 13 because this was when I was just starting to learn a cursive style of hand writing and it was a poor example at the time, although strangely enough to me I just could not remember the content within the cassette, this got me very curious, I just needed to know what was on this cassette, I put the tape aside while I continued going through all my other records, about 2 hours had gone ((I have a lot of records)) I picked up the “Now” & “Future” cassette tape, Keep in mind all along I had not sussed what was on it, so I started looking around the house for an old cassette Walkman that I was uncertain I still owned, after a 1 hour search amongst old dusty boxes I found the Walkman!  dint have any new spare battery’s to run the Walkman so I took a couple of “AA’s” off my TV remote control, slipped the tape on the side labelled  “Now”, plugged my headphones in and pushed the play button…

First I heard the nostalgic sound of the natural hiss one hears from playing a cassette, after about 45 seconds of hiss I was about to trash the tape but just before I hit stop I heard my voice, and It was 13 year old me speaking, and this is what I said….

“I know who I am”                                        (2 minute silence)
“But where am I going?”                                (3 minute silence)
“will I ever come to a stop?”                          (4 minute silence)
“or will I continuously keep growing?”

and that was it. I forwarded the tape, flipped it over to Side “B” nothing further…

Now just over “13 years later” I started to evaluate myself……

I still know myself, I am grounded within my roots, I know what I stand for…Note this was the only statement I made on the cassette, the rest were posing questions, the first question “But where am I going?”, although I cannot fully answer this question I can still look at the patterns of my life in hind site to see my potential future. Following down the other questions I now know that “I will never stop” going where my spirit needs to take me!, and I will always make sure “I am growing”, as a man, and in my works.

It shocked me that I had such a deep perception to reality when I was only 13, looking back I am glad that I was strong enough to overcome the ways of the world and avoid all the crooked influences that would surround me as a teenager growing into a young man.

This tape hit me in such a potent way that my focus now will be centred specifically toward helping the young, as I have truly come to understand that the younger you are the closer you really are to your spirit, I have always wondered why the young can adapt quicker to anything than a fully grown adult? now I know. This is why the young need not only to hear but to see positive things, because as quick as they can adapt to positivity in the same way they can also adopt to wrong ways. When I was a young boy I knew I was lucky because I was always surrounded by love, this is why I grew up to love and not to hate.

Today was the dawn of my self assessment phase, and just today without going into much detail I can say that I have learnt a lot about myself by simply hearing where my mind was 13 years ago.

So I would suggest to all people in all ages to choose the cycle for self assessment, Dig into your spirit and ask yourself the right questions about your life. I would recommend you to record your voice (we have recording technology right within our fingertips), your recorded voice will hit you with a lot more impact 2-5-15-20 years down the line than any hand written document would. People asses your current attitude, assess the company you are frequently amongst, and the works and influences you produce, are you growing through every cycle? or are you still in stagnation?. This is all in the name of elevation.

Love & Unity family!
