Concern

Many people think she has it all
Trying to hit her up for the call
Wondering how she could be single
So they continue the efforts to mingle

Their primary concern is the look she presents
When they have no clue what’s going on in her head
Struggling to wake up each day
As the momentum of depression has its way

Still looking pleasant with a beautiful essence
But you can’t always believe the surface suggestion
The realness is what lies beneath the initial impression
So take the time to realize the entirety of a person

She puts on a good show for those around her
Even though her thoughts continue to burn
It’s not easy being at the center of a whirlwind of emotion
Seeing everything spin out of control with so much commotion

As I sit back and view from afar
I just hope she can hear my kind remarks
I hope they can reach the storm she’s in
Before another layer of her confidence thins

Self

With all the media and text you consume
The final decision of what to believe is up to you
The wisdom and intellect that gets relayed
Ultimately depends on your heart and mind’s decided pathway

Sometimes facts are presented, but plenty is unexplained
Lots of questions are formulated for us to figure out each day
Behind the layers of fear, is your conscience clear
Is this something you can accept, will you maintain self respect

Words and letters swirling like a tornado
Engulfing our thoughts sending chills down our torso
What will determine your next choice
Will you speak up and maintain your own voice

Don’t let the abundance of pressure sink you into depression
Contemplating decision after decision just leaves you left wishin’
The storm shouldn’t determine the outcome
Your presence is needed to be present in every situation

Show yourself that you care and become aware
Wake up to life and don’t imprison yourself in despair

Feelings

All you ladies who have guys call you sexy
Need to do a little evaluating before really connecting
Because they shouldn’t just want you physically
Nor just romance you emotionally or spiritually
They should appreciate the true beauty of your entire being
To be focused on learning you entirely
Seeking to commit to you fully before experiencing everything

But, that’s just me and my feelings

So many these days get caught in the array
Claiming they don’t have choices after choosing a few mistakes
Each day begins anew and time passes you by without a second take
So be sure to truly anticipate who it is you let in today
There’s never a guarantee on what will transpire
Just make sure that they have more than a single desire
Or else you may be left wondering how you are left in a wildfire

But again, that’s just me and my feelings

The physical is said to cause a chemical reaction
What stems in the brain though is a connection
All that you’ve learned and experienced are in correlation
Having many variables result in one thought or notion
With everything that comes into play in a decision
There shouldn’t be anything taken lightly when it comes to relations
So truly assess what each element is telling you and if the other person fits the suggestion

But sincerely, that’s just me and my feelings

Other

I’ve waited waited and waited
But you’ve faded faded and faded
A distant dream of my memory
Now it doesn’t matter what anyone tells me

The notion of quality
With standards that are nifty
At long last, it’s almost as if
None of them no longer exist

They can’t be found, just like you
Someone who took my thoughts, or at least use to
Now left empty with nothing in sight
Alone at last through the night

No questions of wonder
No questions to put me under
No question of when or how
Just the answers of the here and now

River

I’ve often thought about the times you told me I could fly
To the sky in which a great glory resides
The day that comes when it’s all said and done
Crying now in pain, when one day that will all be left behind in the shade
I’m not one to go around expecting a parade
Each time I do something well, because it doesn’t mean we have to celebrate
I want to exchange my success for the cure of someone else’s heartache
The days that we face full of pain, but put a smile on our face as a charade
Can’t be forgotten because you can’t hide all your problems
I looked once and once again saw the notion of commotion
That entangles our mind sending chills down our spine
Poverty and violence are worldwide, but it needs to subside
I’ve anticipated change and instead accepted blame
I’ve hesitated when I should’ve remained motivated
I can’t seem to recall when it was I last rose from this fall
Each time I enter the world it feels so cold
So let it snow, as it’s often said and it’s no longer winter
When will the heat of summer spark a fire toward desire
To diminish this explicitness that we encounter
I’ve lived a smart life, but remain clueless
Intelligence comes through learning, but experience produces wisdom
If it isn’t you than it’s me left questioning why so many accept being empty
That pit deep inside isn’t hard to find
You look in the mirror in horror at times
Wanting things you don’t have instead of being thankful for what you do
In order to find that happiness you think is hiding you must seek
Open your hearts and eyes to those who are weak
Provide your strength to match their need
So at the end of the day their strength can be your remedy
It isn’t hard to see we’re connected
That’s the answer to your question
If you treated each other with love and dignity
There would be many more peaceful cities
I say a prayer because I know He’s listening
For the health and well-being of each individual living
Regardless of your stance or belief
I outstretch my hand to help you if you need relief
Doesn’t matter your age, gender, or ethnicity
The thought of you being harmed displeases me
I’m in the country that claims that it’s free
When in reality we all can plainly see
It isn’t this life that truly grants us that legacy
It is said that one man can change the world
But that event already happened
Before the diamonds and before the pearls
A simple, yet extraordinary gift was given
Many choose to deny the existence
When facts have proven this particular mission
I sense that the world is going in the wrong direction
Each day there’s a story that shows the misconceptions
Just because the times change doesn’t mean we should sin
Self indulgence isn’t a recipe for togetherness
Pleasure shouldn’t be defined solely to the physical
Because temporary is no comparison for the eternal
I hate to think about all the tragedy lingering this very moment
By the time these words have been spoken
Chances are someone has suffered in some way, shape, or form
And the only way to persevere through all these storms is to kneel before the Lord

Connection

Thinking about this lady
She’s driving me crazy
But in a good way
On my mind all day
Even through yesterday
And probably the next days
The sight of her is on replay
Highlights in my mind
The way her smile shines
Gracious each and every time
I’m shocked and stunned
Never did I imagine this run
I thought these days were over
What is going on here
I’m left clueless
This is all most likely useless
For whatever reason
I’m in a youthful season
Drawn to her, I don’t know why
Time to shut it down though… goodbye

Abstinence is Easy

When reading the title you may consider it to be completely insane. However, there is validity to that statement no matter your relationship to the word. Even if you have engaged in the activity it relates to or are still awaiting to experience that aspect of life, the fact remains it is easier not to engage in that activity than what is being lead to believe in our society today. Constantly you see how much the media is trying to sell lustful thoughts and imagery of sex in order to push product, companies, or individuals. The fact remains even though it seems to be an overwhelming topic and is constantly put in front of the eyes of citizens these days it is only one of a million activities that can actually be participated in. When you talk about engaging in intimate relations with another individual it is my personal belief that it should only be encountered between a husband and his wife or a wife and her husband. Whichever way you view it there shouldn’t be any other facet in which someone should contemplate the idea of engaging in the activity or else where does the line get drawn? When looking out into the world today you see that the line has clearly been blurred and is open to almost anyone and anything. It is very sad to see this occurring because lives are essentially being destroyed figuratively as well as literally. You can see from the testimonies of many men and women who have been engulfed in one of the various sex industries (who’ve since exited) say just how emotionally and physically dangerous it can be to the people within it. There was celebration when slavery was abolished, yet in this day and age with the activity people are being taught to pursue the most it still remains stronger than ever. Sex appears to be almost everywhere you look and continues to entice every age group with its lure.

So with all that being said you are probably thinking to yourself how is it that you can have those feelings and write those words, yet at the same time have the title in which you do? The answer is quite simple and lies within one of the sentences above; it is still only one of millions of actions we can actually engage in. If you take a look at the world around us just living everyday life there are numerous aspects that we have to tend to just in basic responsibilities that can take enough time in the day to allow ourselves abstinence. Even with free time there are millions of other activities that we could engage in that wouldn’t allow ourselves to be caught in the realm of sex. This also allows ourselves the possibility to avoid the unwanted perils that sex can bring forth aka STD’s. When you ask someone with such a disease I am sure they would’ve much rather been watching television, cooking food, seeing a movie, enjoying a concert, driving a car, playing a video game, attending a church, etc. instead of contracting a disease that has since greatly hindered their life. There are many complex aspects to this highly talked about and desired activity, but the fact remains it is still easier to abstain from engaging in it than it is to physically allow yourself engagement. With the influences of drugs and alcohol it greatly increases the odds that one can fall into the trap of having these sorts of relations, but they too can be avoided easier than obtained. I know that this may seem crazy to some people who are completely surrounded by these sorts of things in their neighborhoods or cities, but there are always outlets to partake in different scenarios if you just allow yourself to see them. There is always a way out of difficult situations and there is always something else you could be doing other than something that could cause harm to your body. Many people that have to endure such hardships with people essentially suffocating them with the antics of alcohol, drugs, and sex usually don’t take the easiest form of action that is known to them… walking away. In most cases they either continue to deal with the situation in which they have been dealt or give in to those particular temptations. Despite the greater difficulty being in changing the situation it is still the best way to go about handling things to allow oneself to improve the environment in which they live.

Addiction lies in the lives of many people and comes in a variety of forms. With some there are healthier addictions than others, but the fact remains that addictions are real and exist greatly in the world in which we live. That being said there are some people who get caught up in activities that addict them to the idea of sexual relations and even some who are addicted to the actual activity itself. I am not going to pretend that it is easy to get away from such a thing as addiction, but there are plenty of outlets in which someone can express themselves to allow a distraction away from the addiction. The fact that the addiction is in the form of a singular activity within a world that presents millions is still a true statement. However, the condition in which you are able to decide and make strides against an addiction over a situation that is just a simple choice is of far greater of difficulty. With that being said, you can’t argue that addictions are indeed formulated and not just simply acquired out of nowhere. There first had to involve a choice by that same individual who is encountering a form of addiction. A choice that could have went differently from the beginning allowing themselves to never have felt the wrath and power of an addiction over them if they had decided to take one of the many other outlets available in the world around them instead of that one particular activity. When you think technically a conversation with a person is an activity and seeing as there are billions of people on this planet in an age where it is easier and easier to connect to them. It should then become clear that you can easily engage in them from person to person providing many different things to do in order to distract away from one singular activity. Given the way conversations are depicted, you can easily spend a greater amount of time within them than you can on many other things. Conversations allow the opportunity to get to share your background as well as learn the background of the one in which you are speaking with. If you add more people to the same conversation it can twist and turn in many different ways causing there to be a greater time sink. Reading is another example, currently sitting or standing wherever you are now reading this allows the title to remain true because it is taking time away from the chances you engage in that particular activity or another one that you are trying to stay away from. Being that this is randomly on the internet from one person living in this world, there are many similar writings spanning the globe that allow time away from a particular activity of choice.

So you see, the concept is simple to understand once applying basic principles of thinking about just how many different routes there are for someone to take in order to spend their time rather than just one. Given activities that may or may not entice the human mind and body more than others, there is simply still a choice that can be made in order to participate is many others. Now, I am not to say that there aren’t situations that occur in this world that someone cannot control that indeed make them engage in such an activity as sex. Without using the word as it is violent in nature, I believe you can think of what it is on your own. Generally it prevents the victim from wanting to be near that sort of physical activity again, however I have seen others take it the other way and try to handle those emotions by continuing to partake in sexual activity. Despite the initial underlying factor of not choosing that circumstance, beyond that point there is a decision process and still many activities existing that can help prevent someone from falling into the depths of a physical lust. Abstinence is easy, granted with what the world throws our way making that statement hard it is still a truth given the many ways we can make that statement a reality within our lifestyles.

Connections

When you sit back and think about your own body and just how many living pieces are involved to create it, the essence of it all is truly amazing. Skin being comprised of many living cells that conjoin together to formulate your exterior. The millions of blood cells that run through your body to help your immune, cardiovascular, and muscular systems amongst others operate efficiently. The number of nerves, tendons, and veins that run throughout your body connecting everything together that allows all aspects to work in great cohesion. When you think about how tiny yet very important DNA molecules are within your body as well it just brings the design to life. There is such mystery and depth to the human mind and how it operates. The fact that forms of electrical pulses are involved within your head, just speaks volumes to the fact of how remarkable each of us actually are. When you break it down even further seeing as each organ, limb, finger, toe, etc are different from one another it is truly astonishing. We are made up of a great collective of living operating units. Without the unity that occurs within our body, there wouldn’t be the success that it has in operating to its potential. Unfortunately there are circumstances that allow for problems to take place that hinder the ability for certain individuals to experience the general norm of how the human body operates. With these circumstances it should just provide an essence of thankfulness and appreciation for those who are without those difficult obstacles.

In analyzing some of these problems, there sometimes are very little differences that cause large problems in the way the body operates. This to me hints at just how precise a lot of things have to be in order to experience the very simplistic notion of health doing the easiest of things. I find it very disheartening that those who experience problems or differences with how their bodies react mentally or physically with disabilities are then treated unfairly by those who should be helping them. People who have experienced the “normal” way that a body feels and then acquire an ailment or suffer a tragedy that removes as aspect of that health can attest just too how painful that is all around. We need to remain united in support to treating people as the way we’d like to be treated so that even those with such disabilities can experience life in much the same way. They deserve the same compassion and love that each of us who are fortunate enough not to have to endure such hardships still wish to acquire. Experiences tend to go a long way in the mentality of a person. Through positive experiences one can go on to do great things and acquire much success no matter the obstacles that they face. With negative experiences that can just lead to the downfall of not only the one individual dealing with them, but also those that are inflicting that experience. Negativity tends to generally spread a lot easier and quicker than positivity. In looking at how the many aspects of the body have to unite in order to formulate the cohesion that it does just to operate correctly, this should show us that positivity is the greater choice. The slightest negative aspect in the body can cause detrimental harm overall considering just how tightly knit the body is with all its moving parts.

Society is nothing more than a body of people aka living things and in order for it to run successfully the parts within it have to be operating in a positive fashion or else it experiences a problematic downfall. The connections within our lives say a lot about what it is we stand for and our actions tend to speak louder than our words. These collective aspects shape our overall personality and reveal the identity in which we wish to occupy. In order for the things around you to take shape or to become different, the important thing to do first is to analyze yourself because the choices you’ve made tend to result in what it is surrounding you. Responsibility is a complex and difficult thing to grasp at times, but we are all responsible for the negatives that are occurring around us even if we aren’t directly in relation. If there isn’t an active effort from yourself to stop something or spread awareness to the problem in which you disagree with, then you aren’t exactly providing that positive piece to shape the greater workings of a solution.

The Earth lives and breathes to the tone of how the many species within it operate. As you can see overtime just with humanity alone we have caused environmental changes being small pieces to the puzzle that have affected the entirety of a body such as the Earth. The choices and activities that humanity has participated in have influenced the way the Earth has since changed. It is quite evident that sometimes even the smallest things can have a huge impact when you think about the one aspect of pollution for instance. That is one form of activity that has overtime greatly affected the way the Earth’s atmosphere has changed, which results in various changes within the workings of the weather system amongst other things. The first reaction to cut a problem such as that down is to band together and figure out a solution. Uniting and coming up with a positive alternative for anything is always the stance that is garnered in order to improve a situation. Sometimes the positive or moral standard is in the minority, but that doesn’t make it less correct. That to me would imply that there needs to be a greater focus and spread to allow for the proper change to take place, as mentioned earlier it is easier to spread negativity as you should be able to witness each day. Looking within the media, social networking, and probably in your every day typical word of mouth exchanges you most likely hear stories of negative nature. Not so much because people support them, but because of the shock factor and shear amount of them that draw people’s attention. These tend to outshine positive works because they are more controversial or intriguing to talk about. This is where you get into viewing how these whirlwinds of insanity develop. Much like the human body, sometimes the slightest thing can make everything completely unravel.

We are all a collective in life, there is no doubt that connections are real with experiences being shared. The aspect of life is just that of which the body is a larger form of what millions of living things are participating in. What is it that you feel contributes to the success of life? What is it that you feel is needed in order to improve life in general? Thinking of life as more than just what it is you yourself are experiencing is a bit tricky. The knowledge is so vast of life being interpreted as a larger ordeal, but that is in fact what it is. We are all tools and connections within the frame of life that contribute to the essence of what life is while we are alive. Nobody likes to be ill, so why is it that so many people are allowing themselves to be a hindrance or “disease” within life itself? That is precisely what detrimental negative actions are considered, simply a disease within society and experiences for those who encounter them. As mentioned prior, these negative notions spread and impact that which is around them greatly much like a negative existence within a body. They need to be dealt with and in order to do that people need to simply unite and counter it with a positive standing that is moral in nature. With unity and strength great things can occur as our very own body displays to us each and every day.

F.A.I.T.H.

What is the number one leading aspect of someone’s life? There really isn’t one true answer because we all enjoy different activities and lifestyles. The one thing we all do have in common is the hope for things to get better than they currently are. There is something that lies within everyone for there to be some sort of improvement in their life, whether it is just for one situation or something significant that changes their entire life. Everyone has a form of faith whether they acknowledge it or not is a different story. There are people that do in fact base a lot of their life around a particular faith, which is opposite of the many others that just don’t put much weight into the word or idea itself. How can there still be some people that think faith isn’t even real? Do they not have faith in waking up the next day, taking their next breath, keeping their balance when standing up, or being able to talk the next time they need to? Faith comes in many forms and for someone to say that faith cannot exist makes completely no sense. Faith is within everyone that ever lives.

Frequently there are those that question the faith of another person. There becomes questions that arise through the actions they may see another particular individual partake in that seem different. Many wonder why it is certain people “can” act differently given the same situations they may face and handle them differently. When you spend time around people who stay true to the word faith you can definitely see a difference as opposed to those who don’t believe in it. The funny thing is to not believe in something means you have a thought or idea a.k.a. a faith that it isn’t real or doesn’t exist making it false. So again whether people acknowledge it or not, they do in fact partake in a form of faith. It doesn’t matter how much you try and hide from something it can always find you. What is it that makes you have certain beliefs or viewpoints? What do people use as the explanation to describe how they feel? A lot of people say they have to experience it through their own senses first in order to then be able to believe. Faith is the number one definition for belief, no matter how you come about obtaining that viewpoint you then have the faith in it from there on out.

Although there are some people that say you either have faith or you don’t, it doesn’t change the fact that everyone experiences it in some form. Some people choose to not allow themselves the chance at true faith, while others just blindly obtain it through some of the various forms explained above that can occur simply in everyday living. Why is there a struggle over such a simple word? Why is there even any debate on whether or not this can be something to be discussed as true or false? What do you think is the reason there is a controversy surrounding this word? The are various answers that could be apparent in this case, not because of the word itself… but rather how it is exercised by different people. Faith is attached to religions more often than any other form of behavior or belief. This system is what separates different people from grasping the true definition of faith. Many people apply certain things to the word that don’t fully define what it can mean. The problem with that though is faith is indeed a divine emotion and thought. Being the characteristic of faith is enabled and instilled within all of us, what does that tell you?

In the case of there being that unique presence of faith within us humans, why do you not hear about faith being involved in any other species that resides on this planet? Faith is yet another indicator of humans being a result of something different than the rest of the inhabitants. So this raises the point of showing another factual argument toward a divine truth. There are signs everywhere if you pay close enough attention that can reveal a spiritual presence. The influences alone should give enough cause to people showing them that faith is required to make a choice, much like waking up in the morning trying to decide what you might wear. When you decide the direction you want to take driving or simply maybe a job choice, there is a choice that needs to be made in regards to faith. What is it that you will allow your characteristic of faith to latch on to? Will it just be the everyday living experiences you take part in such as breathing, walking, thinking, tasting, and senses in general? If you can have faith in those things working each time you test them, why can you not have faith in something having created those senses to work together? How is it possible to not embrace the facts of conflict, war, hatred, encouragement, inspiration, and morality being in battle with each other. Usually when you hear about battle there is a reason behind it. What is it that is the reason for constant battle throughout all stages of life and in all places around the world?

The answers are there for you to find if you so decide to search for them. If you had the proper insight upon faith you could know and see these various tactics of two different sides. What side is it that you think has influenced you the most just by looking at what your life is like at this particular moment in time? Are you benefiting yourself physically and mentally? How about those around you, what are your relationships and interactions with other people like? Where do those unexplained emotions and feelings come from do you think? There are built in mechanisms within your mind that are unexplained, but they in fact still work toward effecting you throughout life’s journey. Open your heart to the realization that something greater grants you such characteristics. However, there is a choice to be made in which side you will allow to influence your given characteristics. Analyze the word faith and see how it applies to your life. Obtain the proper faith so that can get you to your full potential.

Honestly people the idea of F.A.I.T.H. is rather simple because it is For All In The House. We all call planet earth our home which in essence correlates to the definition of a house. There is a point in time in which we will live in that house and then leave. The question is will you accept the faith that grants you the key to the house of the creator of it all or will you ignore it? What is it that you think makes you not believe in God? What is the main reason you have doubts? What is it that makes you believe in God, but deny the fact of Christ? How can you not think that he would have enough love for his creation to send his Son to save it? When you have a child or some other form of creation that you’ve had a part in making, do you not have an overwhelming love towards that specific child or item… one that you would make sacrifices for? Why is it that you think God wouldn’t visit the place he created? The people that build cities or houses either visit or live there soon after to ensure improvement and decency to their structures, so wouldn’t it be viable for God to do the same thing? How could Jesus Christ not be seen as the Son of God? Has there been anyone else over the course of history to show the power of God himself to the earth? Where have we seen a person be able to perform the same amount of miracles or have such an extensive influence over the course of history? There hasn’t been any similar times or people for that matter. Why is it the tomb remains empty in which Christ was placed? You can still visit it to this day, it was because he rose again and ascended to Heaven. Where do you put your faith? Is it in the form of living paycheck to paycheck or do you have a better place in which to invest your faith?

Think to yourself where you would place your most precious of gifts. Faith is a gift and where you place it can have a huge effect on how everything else pans out. A good earthly example of this is financial investments, people place a lot of stake in financial gain since money is needed to help the course of living. Where do most people put their money? The smart people put it in safe protected areas that are secure and of positive gain. Nobody likes to put their money into risky negative situations, now do they? Depending on how you invest money plays a big role on the type of lifestyle in which you can live over the course of your life, am i right? Faith is much the same way, if you put it in the wrong areas life won’t be as fruitful as it could be for you if you would’ve placed it in the proper experience. Put your faith in the truth, the word of God, and his Son that sacrificed his life for you so you could be saved from eternal torment. Faith again is For All In The House, which house is it that you want to live in… a nice sturdy luxurious house or a worn down beaten house? Another example could be with jewelry seeing there are real materials and brands to choose from using specific items, while also having many illusions out there that are similar but in fact fakes. Most times the fakes have negative effects and aren’t nearly as well crafted all around. Heaven is the real graceful all around well built sturdy kingdom, where as Hell is the fake temptation built out of jealousy that is only an illusion and is of poor quality. Unlike jewelry, in this instance to obtain the luxury and truth of Heaven you just have to receive the gift of Salvation rather than spend some expensive amount of money. Let your faith find the right place to be invested, so your life can experience the blessings it was meant to have now and for eternity.

Music

These days there are more genre’s and forms of music out there than any time before. With the technology that is presented almost anyone can create instrumental music or record lyrics that they themselves write. Recording studios have become fewer and in-home studios have become more and more prevalent. With the cost in these technologies becoming more affordable as is the case with other technologies, music is growing and expanding quicker than ever before. What is it though that you are allowing to enter your hard drives, mp3 players, CD cabinets, and mind in general? There are various forms of music that try and get across similar messages. We can all agree that music is seen as an art and art is seen as a form of expression in order to portray a message of some sort. In most cases even though the genre’s are different there are similar expressions to get across the same message just in a different way. Paying close attention to the lyrics is one way to analyze what it is you are exactly allowing your mind to absorb. On top of that though music has grown to become involved with many other forms of media. You have it getting accessed every time something on a cell phone functions, expressing a scene in a movie, guiding a video game story, or simply being symbolized with its very own music video. Music is expanding in how it is gaining access to our thoughts and behaviors. What exactly is it you are spending your money and hard drive space on in this particular day?

I don’t want to name off all of the variations of musical genre’s that you hear of these days because frankly I doubt I am even aware of all of them that are out there anymore. You do have two varying aspects of the art though that is known by everyone and that is Mainstream and Underground. Mainstream is seen as the music that is being corporately funded and being presented through various forms of media to the mass public. Underground is the music that is unknown or unseen across mass media, but it is the music that stems from the creativity of almost anyone who wishes to dip into the art. You then have the segments of Mainstream and Underground that can be cut up not into genre per se, but rather demographic. There are differing age groups, lifestyles, and beliefs that the Mainstream and Underground can apply to, which in most cases this is a difference in genre… but it isn’t always the case. For instance you can have various styles of one genre span several demographics. These days styles tend to blend more than differentiate between demographics. What it all comes down to though is what you allow yourself to get exposed to because that is then what you become aware of. Lifestyles tend to guide particular people toward certain music these days rather than just naturally getting exposed to it. Introduction of these genre’s and styles happens over the course of every day occurrences more often times than not. There are musical messages that aren’t necessarily fully understood because of different talents that arise or different forms of expression that come up that otherwise had never been observed before. Why is it that people are more accepting these days and not actually analyzing anymore? Over the course of the years you had many people that made a conscious decision toward what it is they listened to, whereas now it is more of a subconscious blind exposure. What made a conscious decision was the fact that people actually studied music in many ways.

You could find hidden messages within songs depending on what you did with the instrumental or lyrics. Then people actually took the lyrics and looked into what was actually being said by this particular person. These days there are more opportunities than ever before to find actual meanings, but there seem to be fewer people actually doing so. So many people are being effected by something they don’t even know is taking a hold of them. There are people that wonder why they act in a certain manner only when particular atmospheres are present and a lot of times there is certain music involved amongst this particular atmosphere. What exactly are surrounding atmospheres that you would expect to see in these new age “social” situations? One easy thing to pick out is music as one of the pillars to these social situations. Why is it that there tends to be so much evil surrounding specific areas where certain music is involved? Night clubs, frat parties, gatherings for recreational drug use, sex parties, etc. all have their forms of music being played helping to influence the actions of the people involved. What exactly is the reasoning behind all of this? Why can’t people see the correlation to the meaning of this music and where it is played most? How can many not acknowledge the fact of symbolism within much of the music being played in these particular gatherings? When watching a movie what is it that effects your emotions the most? Whether you know it or not, it is the sound/music that impacts your sensory subconscious reactions more than what it is you visualize. So it is already a proven fact that musical instrumentation can effect the way your body reacts and the emotions it feels. Another thing you have to realize is reactions aren’t always necessarily controllable, sometimes you don’t make the conscious effort to react… you just do.

Now how is it not safe to say that adding a lyrical message now doesn’t also effect the way you think? If you take a close look at the styles of many of these so called “popular” acts one thing stands out more than anything else and that is repetition. The best way to learn something and remember something is through repetition, which is known by almost everyone because that is how you begin to teach younger children to begin their mental developments. You also use repetition throughout the course of your life to enable yourself a good solid memory foundation. Can you not see music using repetition to try and grasp a hold of your mind in order for you to remember what it is you are hearing from them? There are messages within each song that you may not be aware of hidden beneath the surface. You hear the music and want to react, some don’t even pay attention to lyrics half of the time because of how well they just like hearing the instrumental. That is another technique that people use in order to disguise their hidden agendas or expressions they feel may or may not be accepted otherwise. Just look at the combination of a beautiful sounding female vocalist being combined with a normal sounding male lyricist. What is it that you tend to remember most? You hear everything that is being said and played, but what sticks out in memory is the disguise of the wonderful sounding female vocalist most of the time considering she is generally given the part of the track that is of the repetitive nature. Then this gives free reign to the male lyricist to gel with the instrumental disguising his lyrics within the flow of the beat. Considering most of this type of music is normally played in social settings, there are generally other substances involved to distract a person as mentioned above. With these distractions it allows the brain to absorb what is being said, but the person doesn’t actually apply a conscious sense of awareness or understanding. So a lot of times people are being affected by these things and not even knowing it. As mentioned prior a lot of people act differently than normal within certain settings where certain forms of music can be involved. Well I know what you are saying, “didn’t you just mention other substances being involved?” where the answer would be yes I did in fact mention that. However, not only are there times where people don’t use these substances and still act differently… but what does most of the music being played contain? Much of it contains the message of using the same particular substances or partaking in similar actions that are being involved within these social experiences. So how can anyone say they are not related? Sex, lies, and substance using lifestyles are all involved in a lot of “popular” “social” atmospheres these days while being accompanied by these sex, lies, and substance using musical messages.

This begs the continued point of good vs. evil, do you listen to the same music to calm you down and relax as you would to get excited or in “fun” mode? The answer is no, you do not react the same to different forms of music. Go watch movies of a different genre, which as stated earlier use the different genres and styles of music to get you to feel the proper emotions of that particular story… now tell me if they are the same. They will not be the same at all and those are mostly just instrumental differences. A little known fact that you can find in the Bible is that Lucifer now commonly known as Satan or the Devil is referred to as the Angel of Music. This does not mean that all music is evil, but it does show you that he has a large influence on the negativity you see within the music industry. There are people being tempted by him in order to spread the message of being Anti-God or Anti-Christ without exactly outright saying that. The main area of music in the “popular” a.k.a. Mainstream realm without question glorifies reckless lifestyles that just create problems for all of those involved. Music that portrays the usage of substances easily showcases how it wants one to think it is “fun” to make decisions to partake in actions that are detrimental to your body. Music that glorifies sex has also gotten in the heads of many people, which then results most often times than not in what? The correct answer is regrettable decisions and sometimes unchangeable problems because it isn’t glorifying the proper definition or expression of sex. There are answers and correlations that are so plainly revealed to the human eye if only people could take the time to observe them. If there is music glorifying evil and detrimental actions do you not then deem that as bad? I mean it is easily established that we as people place evil, bad, hurtful, demeaning, detrimental, violent, and satanic all on the same side of the spectrum no matter what. So why do so many classify music that has these messages of hatred, detrimental actions, and evil in general as “good”? Why is it that so many are allowing these to be “popular”? In essence you are in turn celebrating these actions and the pains that many people suffer as your own form of entertainment. Why is this being the case? This isn’t just an art there is obviously a purpose behind it.

People need to wake up and realize many of these things because our surroundings do in fact effect how we think, act, and react. There are hidden meanings and messages that are implemented into the things we encounter on an everyday basis. It continues to strike me as a surprise how people are so unaware of the unseen. There are so many that cannot believe something that they don’t see, yet they experience as well as partake in unseen behaviors and actions every day. There are many that only acknowledge what it is their senses can experience as being truth, well how can this be the case when your senses can be tempted and controlled by negative things to distract you or lead you astray that you may not even have control over? Are there not enough signs and realities being shown that we as humans have a spirit and there is spiritual warfare here on this earth? I just simply cannot understand how people who say they need proof can’t see the proof that already exists. There is a reason for all of this and it is that you are allowing the falsehood to block you from seeing the truth. You can easily see that if you consume something harmful to your body in the matter of food/drink that there will be BAD consequences, where as if you consume something GOOD the body will then be nourished for the better. I would encourage everyone to analyze what it is they consume in regards to all of their senses because the same applies in every other form. Whether you are conscious of the changes or not, the effects will be revealed to those around you as well as yourself at some point in time.

Again not all music is evil, but there is a lot of it out there that just simply is. The music that glorifies positivity, moral behavior, God, Jesus, and proper values is indeed good. The music that tries to distract and elude you away from such exposure and experiences is indeed evil. Please become aware of this, how does it not make sense? What have these “artists” spewing a lot of this evil garbage ever done for you? The only thing they have done is provided you trash to deal with and accepted your hard earned money for their own personal gain. What sacrifices have they personally made to make your life better? Have they not in essence influenced your life to become worse whether it was you who they influenced or someone else you know? There is a gift out there waiting for you, there is more than what meets the eye. Just because you don’t personally see, touch, taste, hear, or smell everything that happens doesn’t mean that it doesn’t occur. There is life going on all over this world and a lot of it you miss out on experiencing with your human senses, but it doesn’t prevent any of it from actually having happened or existed. So why is it so hard for many to grasp typical faith, hope, spiritual, and Biblical principles? There is a reality that many have yet to be introduced to or come to be aware of. There is a truth that needs to be seen, heard, and felt by everyone. Don’t allow yourself to become a mindless drone to the activities of evil that happen within the music industry. There is evidence a.k.a. proof of Satan’s presence within a lot of the music and people creating it, take it seriously! The only way to help you overcome and withstand the consumption of evil that may be taking place within you is through the gift of Salvation, which is Jesus Christ. Again, people are able to acknowledge right/wrong, good/evil, and now it is time for them to acknowledge the presence of Heaven/Hell because a choice has to be made. Spirit is what sets our species apart from the rest because we are made in the image of God. This element of life is real ladies and gentleman and there is a spiritual battle at hand. Become aware and choose the pathway that is Jesus Christ for he is the only way to Heaven, which is the only option that will benefit you in this temporary life as well as throughout eternity.
