I’ve been setting boundaries with social media because social media has turned into something negative. For example the reposting of the 15 yr. old boy being stabbed to his death and the rapper dying to his death instead of calling 911. What has this world come to? We are forgetting about humanity because we are living in a virtual reality, basically not reality at all. I’m grateful for growing up at the time that I did even thou we were lost kids , social media was not around. I want to reflect on my journal entries of this past week and is going to be taken to different directions but there’s lessons that I’ve learned so bare with me, lol.
“This weeks has been a reflection week. A rapper was killed and video taped and posted on social media. I didn’t know who he was however that’s not the point of this , there’s two observation I point out in this situation. First, we are living in a “virtual reality” not the human reality where people are posting fights, getting killed , someone dying online and not having remorse just want to have likes and retweet. The person who recorded it should of called 911 instead of recording it but instead because we are living in a world that everyone wants to be famous and get likes and notice that their first instinct is not caring for this young man that’s dying. I’ve set boundaries with social networks and myself for my sanity and be more present.
After hearing about this young man , I researched him and it was a reflection of how powerful we are and how much we are connected to the universe. This young man as a few of us know spoke about death a lot and he did not very nice things which I am no one to judge. That’s between him and god now (another lesson, more on it later ), however for years I was talking a lot about depression, being sad just negativity. It never came to me that everything I was thinking and writing I was living because the universe is like a magnet what you put out will come back to you. Is a connection we have, we have an invisible connection with the universe. He was speaking so much about death that it came to him because he preached it and talked about it. Snoop dog had an interview with the breakfast club a few weeks ago and he was discussing that everyone around him always wrote and spoke about death and when he wrote the song “murder was the case” he still didn’t catch the case. Now the power of the pen, they were writing about death and negative shit and everyone that was around him at that time is death. He decided to change that mindset and speak about life more often. The power in the toungue, mind and connection with the universe.
I had to check in with myself after this and ask how am I connecting with god and myself? How are my intentions coming out? I’ve been open about my mental health issues, thou i control it better, is still something that everyday I have to show up for myself so I won’t go back to that hole. Thou I ask what is the core issue that I get in that zone? I can’t preach positivity at all times and not acknowledge what I’m feeling for real. I have to acknowledge work with it , connect and find a solution. Being real with myself is a step to finding a solution. I connect to Mother Nature a lot and that’s how I stay present. Everything is a choice , I choose a joyous life and not a bitter life. I lived sad for so long and that’s only because I was stuck on the past and holding grudges and I was living everything I was writing and preaching. Now is different and also I’m researching “Intention” and I’m discovering that you can think , write , say what you want but your soul has to feel it , power of intention .
Moving on, a 15 year old kid was stabbed to death by mistaken identity. The people that did it , ASSUME that this boy was someone that recorded himself having sex with one of the guy’s sister. “ASSUMING”, in the 4 agreements it says don’t assume anything just ask. Assuming is a mindset thing, you make up a scenario of what is and you stick to what your head says. All they had to do was a simple task, the four agreements explains it “don’t assume anything . If you don’t know something and are curious just ask”. But unfortunately that did not happen, and a mother does not have a child. Now going back to living in a virtual reality not the human reality, it was video taped, posted and it was reposted several times, Pero why ? For likes, to get famous. What is the obsession of being liked?
But let me go back to the reason why this boy was taken away. The person that actual posted pornography on Facebook degrades not only the girl but himself as well. When you post your activities online, ask yourself what’s the purpose of this? What am I getting out of it ?and how will I be remember? What’s my legacy? Social media is not going to last , I’ve said it many times and we have come to a place that is so addictive that is dangerous. So i give you an assignment that I’ve given myself recently, when all of this is all over , what is left of you ? This smartphone is not reality. Is not your reality.
Center yourself and find yourself
