“Life’s purpose and the perfect rice cooker have similarities. A rice cooker can boil other dishes but it is bought because it is best at cooking rice besides other things it can do. There may be other rice cookers out there, yet, you bought the one you have in your kitchen because it shined to you. It just fit.
You have been using it all this time and for years because it has been fulfilling it’s key purpose of boiling rice to your satisfaction. The rice cooker that does not know it is a rice cooker, or one that thinks it is a potato boiler will simply never be good enough. Just like this, we all shine when we know, understand, and work at our life’s purpose. Find it, focus on it, work at it.”
If we talked… If we talked and I spoke sweet words… If we talked and my words cradled your face like they were hands… If you heard everything you’ve ever wanted will you truly be happy? Or would you mimic me? Whisper the words you want to hear to your self. Cradle your own face with your own words.Continue reading Words→
“Do stuff. Be clenched, curious. Not waiting for inspiration’s shove or society’s kiss on your forehead. Pay attention. It’s all about paying attention. Attention is vitality. It connects you with others. It makes you eager. Stay eager.”
“There comes a time when you realize that your life is no longer in any man’s hands. Not in your parents, or your siblings, or friends, not in yours, but in the hand of God who does as He wills. And then you stop fighting and kicking against the pricks. You gain that smoother Iife of peace, and surrender. Then all you can say is:
Humans are relational beings; and thus, we owe our existence to the ability to cultivate relationships that sustain our mental, physical, emotional and psychological tranquility. In every relationship, there are roles played by each correspondence, and these roles are defined by several factors; age, position, class, family, culture, spirituality, and tradition. This plays out in such a way that it creates dominant and subordinate(dependent) individuals in the relationships. Interestingly, as adults we play both roles of being both dependent and dominant at the same time, across different relationships, and thus there is a diffusion of a learned trait from a relationship circle to another one; and this goes on and on, creating a tangle of relationship traits.Continue reading Abuse & Manipulation→
I know that eight billion others exist alongside me.
I know that others have come and gone before me.
I know it has all been said before in different ways and phrases.
I know that in the picture of space and time we are smaller than a spec.
Yet this is the beauty of our humanity.
That we can cycle through life enjoying what has always been enjoyed.
Thus, I will not get lost in mundane thoughts.
I will not get stuck in mediocrity.
One and all eight billion will know!
I lived. I lived. I lived!

Recently, I visited the zoo on my trip to Shanghai and came across the wild. I realized that we sometimes use the word ‘wild’ arbitrarily. When i ran into the ligers, the tigers, and the lions, i felt goosebumps spread across my skin, and my flight response kick in albeit a wall of glass between us. Welcome to the wild.
“The role of Woman is something spiritual. Profoundly spiritual. Her value is something insurmountable. Her very being defies human rationality. A little smaller yet so powerful. Lighter but a heavy weight lifter. She becomes Mother. Mother Earth, Mother Nature, Motherland. Beautifully birthing life itself. Birthing nations, birthing Christ! She is indeed something spiritual.”
“Waiting for motivation to meet you where you are is like expecting to drown on sandy shores. You have got to step in to the ocean. You must decide to take that dive, only then will the depths of inspiration welcome you.”
“What is music? Is it not but a collection of the sounds of the world? It is that special combination of what could have been noise that sets your heart ablaze, your nerves afire, and your feet to dancing.“
“Sometimes, all it takes is a little more strength, a little more courage, a little more interest, a little more determination. Not a lot more, just a tiny bit more than you had before to make it through, and suffer no regrets.”

“Imagine your existence. Remember the reality of your consciousness. Now Imagine only existing. Existing with no purpose, no warmth, no life.Knowing nothing, heading nowhere even after death. Such hopelessness!I wish to have nothing to do with it.
For indeed man was designed for immortality. By nature we are immortal. Where man therefore spends the rest of eternity after his time on earth is the most crucial question of his existence. Now we must decide. With God or without?”
Being Nigerian in Nigeria is something nearly profound. There is a comfort that creeps over my skin. It is almost suffocating how magnificent it feels to be your own person among your own people. It is almost bewildering how ecstatic I am to eat the food of my people by my people, with my people.Continue reading A Person of My People→
