THE PROCESS OF BECOMING: CARRY GREAVES



As the days and weeks grow, months fly by, and the year closes out, many will find themselves in the same position in which they started. Some will sit back and reflect and realize that nothing has changed in their personal lives and will continue to sit back and do absolutely nothing to effectuate change. While a very few will actually take the initiative to move accordingly to bring about change in their lives.

The problem for those who don’t take the necessary steps to bring about change stems from not realizing that the condition of life that they created is a direct reflection of the life they have created inside of themselves. In their thoughts. When negative thoughts become a part of your every waking day, it eliminates the possibility of positive things occurring in your life.

In addition, negative thoughts are also the genesis of our physical sickness. Because of the tremendous power of negative thinking, it compromises our immune system and weakens its ability to function properly. This gives contagions the opportunity to find their way into our system. As a result we become ill much sooner because our immune system has to now work harder at fighting the invading virus.

Each time we feel the urge of negative thinking coming up into our thoughts, we will have to pause immediately and stop in our tracks and push aside these negative thoughts with something constructive and positive. And, as you practice this daily, it will eventually become a positive characteristic.

What is important in setting up the right foundation is for us to apply the alchemy of belief that negative thoughts will no longer be able to live within our minds. The creative conduit that we innately have, but must tap into, will have to be utilized correctly in order for us to subdue any flow of ideas that are unhealthy and destructive to our wholeness.

When we are impatient with ourselves or do things hastily, it seems like the end result is never what we anticipated. But when we work with patience, discipline, and a thorough understanding of the course we are embarking on, the end result will look a lot different. Much brighter with even greater possibilities.

Life can be difficult and painful at times. But when we begin to mature emotionally and mentally and exercise some form of self-discipline, difficulties will be seen as a stepping stone and not as problems that could hamper our growth. When we were in our younger years, many of us took the little things for granted until they were taken away from us. Then we began to realize how important the little things meant to us.

By living our lives one day at a time while working on our thinking, our attitude, our behavior, our communication, and relationship with ourselves and others, our true happiness will eventually come on its own. You will never have to go out chasing or looking for it. It was already there from the beginning. All it needed was nurturing and the right environment. That place is called your heart. Because nothing in your life is truly finished until the very moment you stop putting forth your best.

DRAWING A STRAIGHT LINE TO RECIDIVISM, SUSTAINABILITY, AND RENEWED PROSPERITY IN PHILADELPHIA

Heralded by many as the “Next Great American City”, the fifth largest metropolitan area in the United States, the City of Philadelphia is on the move.  Real estate developers are transforming an area between Market and Chestnut Streets spanning from 11th to 12th Streets once considered the epicenter of Philadelphia into East Market, a towering and expansive structure which will be home to residential units, restaurants, retail outlets, and office space. Looking westward, a cluster of gleaming glass and steel skyscrapers which rise above the end of the Walnut Street Bridge and which appear to obfuscate the line of demarcation between the City of Philadelphia’s downtown business district, University City, and the neighborhoods surrounding Drexel University and the University of Pennsylvania come into view .. These developments are helping to create excitement about Philadelphia. Despite the perceived “renewed prosperity” of Philadelphia’s downtown business district an…

SEEING INVISIBLE MEN AND BOYS: JEROME TEELUCKSINGH, Ph.D.

On 19 November 2015, a panel discussion was held at the Student Activity Center at The University of the West Indies, in Trinidad and Tobago (in the Caribbean). It was spearheaded by an undergraduate female student, Ms. Michelle Roopnarine, and featured Dr. John Gedeon of the University's Office of Planning and Development; Ramia Coleman, the Chairman of the all-male Hall of Residence on campus; and Jonathan St. Louis-Nahous, the Guild of Students' Representative for Part-time and Evening Students. The panel successfully generated some interest and lively discussion among a cross-section of students on campus and across faculties. During the past five years, similar small scale observances have been held on campus. Despite this recognition many students and members of the public are still unaware of the existence of International Men’s Day.
From 1999, International Men’s Day was tailored and revamped to continue building the global Men’s Movement and promote an ideology that…
