ON... A Coaster for Living Water

Hey - real quick! In following up with the last post's "airtight" vibe, I felt compelled to share a brief amalgam of classic, cool quotables that just blessed my heart as I "walk past... not now, but RIGHT NOW... [at times] very, very incognito... in riddles // [nullifying] crazy, thinking... mere nonsense... renditions of defeat & competition // Lemme tell ya who's the boss... my GOD". I am grateful that EVERYWHERE is the zone only the Most High, worthy of all praise, owns!

Those threads of A Tribe Called Quest's classic "God Lives Through" make the mere idea of squabbling, malintent, harm and all pettiness futile. If someone truly has it all {chosen and (via children and more family) given love, luxury, abilities, an overall great life to boast of}, how and why is there room for what I or another supposedly don't have or deserve? When does an attentive and fulfilled man/husband/brother/friend/son/cousin/boss OR woman/wife/mother/sister/friend/daughter/cousin/aunt/5-star or any other term du jour for "me me" mentality have the time to covet beyond their own abundance? Is it raw evil and greed at work? Is it the inability to maintain a lie that frustrates one enough to lash out? Is it an awkward way to connect in hopes of (re-)building better relations with an underestimated being? What are jealousy or envy but elements of an old Fat Joe album title anyway? Pun intended to break the ice with unifying laughter, not to sow seeds of sarcasm unto bitter fruit. Know this. For real.

The fire in any of us could play with fire outside, but it isn't worthwhile. It makes me bore terribly and none but Palmer's or the shea butter merchants benefit from ash everywhere. I do cook with it and expect it to heat the water I bathe or wash with, however. Sometimes it even sparks my incense or a candle, offering a sweet savor I hope and pray radiates far, deep, wide and Heaven-high. That's about it, though. To follow or exhaustively chase Divine refreshment as above with anything but more harmlessly peaceful consciousness and temperance of whatever's eating U(niversal propensity for emotion, etc.) is self-defeating. At the risk of sounding silly for a little bit, people, be cool and skip even. Aside from healthy communication, you don't have to catch up with me at all. Both my 'jones' and race are but for the One prize of Divine Truth and Love large enough for ALL who will be faithful to Christ's instructions in doing the Work. This coaster is here purely to optimize the gathering and intake of the Living Water of God's Word and Will. Please stay focused on good things, family, and be sure not to let one drop of the Almighty's Love get away from you either. P.E.A.C.E.



P.S. So long as honesty and respect flow between any applicable parties, Ralph Tresvant's bridge in the second linked video is true. It really doesn't matter who likes whom besides the 2 hearts involved. Bombs + too much flexing don't win, but the YouTube uploader (OriginalRooster) did a beautiful thing ~ EARLY!!! Also representing an early approach to the joys of Life is the work of the lovely R&B/smooth jazz quartet otherwise known as Perri. Like a four-part sisternova exploding in revelatory light for our good, these sisters' soulful sound was so stylish! They were funky yet sweet in helping us to view social ills from the upside, down and make bad spirits with nowhere to go take welcome flight into the transforming Light of Eternal Life.
