Have the people forgotten the nature of the universe. Could it be? Just in case, go back and read the book of Job. What happened exactly in Job. And why? Remember Isaiah 45:7 (KJV); “I form the light, and create the darkness: I make peace, and create evil: I the Lord do all these things.” Just because a person is unaware of who/what they should be truly afraid of, doesn’t mean there won’t be consequences and growth points in life to correct them along the path. It’s simple, do not judge, show love, and have mercy, because we don’t have the authority to determine what is truly “good or evil.” There seems to be a form of ego that exists in being one of those “goody two shoes” politically correct personality types. The type that judges you in their hearts, but you can see the judgement in their eyes. Society has become fixated on political correctness—rather you are politically correct (woke), politically correct (contrarian), politically correct (saint), politically correct (gangsta/goon), politically correct (normal), politically correct (celebrity), politically correct (kind), or the big one today: politically correct (wise/important)...., the Teacher will continue to ask the same question; how strong is your Gong Fu? #sophrosyne #lessismore #lawsoftheuniverse #inspiration #love #ataraxia #mentalhealth #influencer #dreambig #doer #growth #wisdom #zen #goodvsevil #goodbadguy #beautiful #notetoself #quotestoliveby #instalike #motivation #ancientwisdom #atbash #emotionalintelligence #wormwood #failure #success #treeoflife #woke #innerpeace #monkeyshit

Official birthday moods. #swipeleft 💃🏻 I always get the feels on my birthday. It's my cancer side. ♊️♋️ #Sophrosyne is the theme of this next year. It is an ancient Greek concept of excellence of character and soundness of mind, which when combined in one well-balanced individual leads to other qualities, such as temperance, moderation, prudence, purity, and self-control. Definitely #goals . When I was younger I wanted things like a Benz or handbag or something materialistic, that I got, but was still unfulfilled. Now, I just want to vibe with good people, be a good mommy, be healthy, and have good experiences (why I took a trip vs buying myself something this year). 👵🏼 Come thru, 31! #BirthdayGirl #ItsMyBirthday #cuspofmagic #GeminiCancerCusp
🙌🏻 By the hand of Warsan Shire to my heart.
TBT. Back when life choices and decisions were predicated on love letters, my favorite rapper’s songs lyrics, and how well a person could tolerate the toxicity of my undiagnosed megalomania, narcissism, and entitlement. Two year growth points became weekly firmware updates, and old memories eventually faded and became dotted road lines and road signs when I came to, just as I stared in my rearview mirror, and then glanced back at Athena to mirror her smiling at me. Season 32, where no episode is the same, and I can’t remember what’s it’s like to not Gong Fu and enjoy life. #sophrosyne #timeless #throwbackthursday #thursday #throwback #memories #growth #change #happiness #patience #perserverance #throwback #oldman #adulting #photooftheday #instalike #instathrowback #innerpeace #love #roadtrip #riding #drive #hiddentreasure #section8 #mentalhealth #blessed #beautiful #gongfu #kungfu
Celebrate, cry, laugh, hate, love, whatever lights your soul on fire; just be vulnerable and bare your soul. You already won. This is your victory lap, there is no wrong way to run a victory lap (run backwards if you want to). But just know that the universe doesn’t owe us a damn thing, that is why we are here in the first place. Think about it. Now go, and teach the world your Gong Fu, and why your style is the greatest of all. #sophrosyne #motivation #zen #chi #energy #love #inspiration #curseoftheabyss #quotestoliveby #thursday #happiness #innerpeace #kingfu #kungfu #blessed #gongfu #goku #mentalhealth #idiot #foolswisdom #ancientwisdom #melchezidek #ancientsumer #confucius #positivevibes #healing #growth #taoteching #iching #china
Summer is here! The perfect time to decide which Flavours in life you want. Is it more Meraki? Or Sophrosyne (mindfulness) or are you going for some more Eudaimonia(happiness)? What ever Flavour(s) you choose, go for it & make it work. Take the next step & make this summer one to remember. #thinkdifferent #startyourjourney #meraki #sophrosyne #metanoia #eudaimonia #elysian #epiphany #happiness #lifestylebooks #TravelFlavours #justdoit #writer #entrepreneur #inspiration #lifestyle #Change #summer #investinyourself #goforit #nextstep
WCE, Athena!!! 😍😍😍 “Shot out to my boss women wifing bosses!” Keep your happiness and moves in life a secret. The world doesn’t deserve to see every great thing God has blessed you with. Inner-peace and your source of happiness are intrinsic values that should never be shared with the world; this is to be protected and hidden deep away. In other words, let the world guess what level you’re really at (if you choose to share memories or gems with the world). And let me ask this, what can the world offer you when you share your happy memories? Don’t do it for the gram, do it for your future self.

“One compliment costs yourself not even an ounce of pride to make someone else’s life a little happier. If you have no pride, then the compliment is free. Why not compliment others and make their lives a little bit happier?” It truly amazes me how far a little positive energy will go, so why hold back? Everyday I strive to be the happiness/inner peace plug, and when they ask me about my Zen: direct them to the water of life.

As I mature, things become clear. There is black and white and the grey can eventually be sent to a corner with some careful deliberation. Love is love. Killing is killing. Tags on a child’s chest are tags on an animal’s ear, were tags on prisoners of war. Compassion for life is compassion for all life, no qualifying, no quantifying, no confusion, no rationalization. There is crystallization in my heart as I explore my thoughts and examine my life. An open heart and open mind means there is always the possibility of change, reconsideration, and renewal. I think this is the charm of staying around...the reward for the years. • #freeourfamilies #refugees #asylum #freedomforall #humanity #familiesbelongtogether #clarity #blackandwhite #morality #compassion
“the wind could blow a gale; but it blew a white cleanness and the air was full of a driving whiteness and all things were changed and when the wind stopped there would be the stillness.” . . . . . .

“I was hungry for more of it, the changes of the seasons, the rains with no need to travel, the discomforts that you paid to make it real, the names of the trees, of the small animals, and all the birds, to know the language and have time to be in it and to move slowly.” . . . . . . .

Read, travel, watch movies, create, do what ever it takes to expand your “frame of reference” in life. Not every philosophy or life quote will work for your lifestyle because we are all unique, with distinctive idiosyncrasies. There will always be a horizon in front of you, even if you close your eyes or can’t see a obvious visage in the distance. Don’t be surprised by life and growth points, be open today. Think of it this way, you can always revisit your upbringing and childhood memories, don’t get caught up in who you were, what’s most important in life is what you experience and who you become. #sophrosyne #read #frameofreference #history #travel #openmind #experience #life #growth #study #creative #expandyourplayground #understanding #happy #mentalhealth #quotestoliveby #deepthinking #mondaymotivation #monday #motivation #awareness #avidreader #historybuff #moviebuff #comics #roleplaying #unlimited #nofilter #knowledge #wisdom
“Slow your thoughts down until they become inanimate, then you can visualize your thoughts and pluck them out of the air. Choose only the thoughts that serve you and keep you close with God. Don’t get caught up in religion, religion comes from the word religare which means to bind you, and we are free through Christ. It’s not about being a saint. God is your Father, He will show you the way, and one day we will become like brothers” —Tony Matthews. Wow, that was 25 years ago, when I was 7 years old, back when I thought you were just a long-winded megalomaniac full of crazy ideas! (You still are and so am I) 😂🤣 Geez, 25 years later, past our epic fights, beyond my doubt and anger issues, beyond my ego, maybe now I understand what you meant back then (maybe). This feeling of happiness is an emotion that transcends both peace and happiness. This feeling can’t be described because somehow, it’s interconnected to every soul I have ever met (and will ever meet). Imagine that your consciousness is “one” with every living thing you have ever met and will ever meet; you feel all of their pain, their happiness, their fears, and their thoughts as one soul. You are all one consciousness seeing through each other’s eyes, yet you are not. I can’t fully describe it, all I can say is this feeling of happiness and peace and freedom is amazing! But I want the same for everyone, because it feels like everyone is me?? 🤦🏾‍♂️ Anyways, Zen waves!!!(DO NOT delay or obfuscate your inner peace). 🌊 🌊 🙏🏾🙏🏾✌🏾#sophrosyne #love #fathersday #inspiration #happiness #nature #collectiveconsciousness #ascended #highlife #mentalhealth #curseoftheabyss #zen #innerpeace #transcend #nirvana #joy #forgiveness #growinguptoofast #positivevibes #mood #sincere #genuine #truelove #fatherslove #quotestoliveby #blessed #pharaohsinchains #futurism #kindness #beautiful
Please take a moment to appreciate the father figure in your life, whatever your relationship is, even if nonexistent, it has led you to become the beautiful soul that you are today. ‘Vader,’ the Dutch form of father, ‘Faether’ the Old English, ‘Pater’ in Latin, and even ‘Pita’ in Old Persian signify the “person who begets.” While the connotation is implied, it doesn’t necessarily mean the father figure is male. That being said, may all father figures in the protoverse and planes of existence be fully cherished and appreciated, rather you are beloved by your seed or regarded as the scum of the universe to them, you in-fact beget dynasties. Now for some, it is important to note: “you were begotten so that your legacy would not be forgotten.” To my father Tony Matthews, I love you so much brother, for striving to set an example with the limited tools and insight, and burdened with a family of 6 in section 8 housing. Bless your soul for doing what your father wouldn’t do. Just know that every day I am committed to bringing honor to you and utilizing all the pearls and discipline you taught us, that I couldn’t fully appreciate as a child, in order to become the best version of myself. I want to show the world what it means to be a Matthews. Side note; I didn’t post your face but I did mention you, that was not explicitly stated pop 😈 #sunday #sophrosyne #fathersday #principles #patriot #disciple #leadership #love #brotherhood #father #dad #blessed #masculine #virility #fatherfigure #guidance #strength #lessons #growth #nobility #blackman #happyfathersday #quotes #manhood #adulting #happy #mentalhealth #toughlove #family #legacy
I don’t need the world to see | that I’ve been the best I can be | but I don’t think I can stand to be where you don’t see me -Marcy #sophrosyne
Beauty conforms to the demands of the spirit. At your ultimate best you may never be right for the wrong person. At your absolute worst, you will still be worth it to the right person.

Beautiful word: Sophrosyne. An ancient Greek word found in Plato's writings that sounds like a sister-word for Mindfulness. Meaning: (n.) A healthy state of mind, characterized by self-control, moderation, and a deep awareness of one's true self, resulting in true happiness.

You have spent years in poisonous relationships, binge drinking, unfulfilling jobs, passionless directions, poor choices, years of addictions that have broken the walls of your temple. Those years have deposited something inside of you. These are not wasted years, my friend, these are the years that have made you, pushed you around, burned you, pressured you. Use them to refine your mental clarity now. Keep moving forward. Wisdom comes not as a gift without suffering. Be glad for it. - x Mistress • • #sagittariuswoman #vegan #wisdom #pureslm #firesign #52andfly #lashlove #puresexlovemagic #priestess #lovedrug #intelligenceissexy #naturalplatinum #piercedwoman #tattooedwoman #blondeambition #yxewoman #sapiosexual #52af #spiritualgangster #moonwoman #girlswithglasses #mistress #nastygirl #sophrosyne #queen #plantstrong #greeneyes #belledejour
