InkMann Press–Slow Jams

PicsArt_11-23-08.43.31

 

Along the journey we will experience periods where things seem to be at a standstill.  This is a time when it seems as if something physical is in the way of us moving further into our purpose. Some of us experience this period as a blockage or obstacle and we often feel stuck or get distracted. Even though we have this need to move to the other side of this experience, we sometimes lack the fortitude to do so. As days go by we slowly allow the blockage or obstacle to slow down our momentum which ultimately causes a jam in our growth process.

 

There are two ways of looking at a “standstill” moment that happens on a path of the journey. One way is to look at it through eyes that lack vision. Eyes that have no vision see this period as a stale mate thinking they haven’t won but neither has the other side. They get distracted and move on to something else momentary. The other half will feel cheated and stay stuck in the moment: never moving any further because they are afraid that what they want is not on the other side. When we’re able to comprehend what this period is for we’ll understand that all we believe, dream, and hope for is attainable and we’ll use this period like a training camp for the Best of the best. There are those of us who are willing to do this because we know this time is limited and that we must use it to get better. The main goal for anyone during this period is to know every tool in their own arsenal. They know that they need to know how those tools work and when they work best.

 

This period is the period of all periods. It helps you to get all the answers to all the questions you’ve ever asked and just had to know. You get the time to read up on everything that will help you to grow. You get to mull over the lessons that you are learning, as well as learn how to use what you’re learning for the next whatever on your journey. You get to plan how you’ll use the lesson during your next situation. You get to prepare yourself for the vision that you’ve created for yourself. You get to plan it out and watch it happen as it unfolds. This period is so much more for the person has dares to have a vision for it.

 

It’s not that those lacking vision can’t gain some insight or have an “Aha” type moment and begin to move past the slow jam and understand what this moment is for. Everything is possible when we work to find out more during this period. A standstill offers a time to work through issues that could potentially cause problems and hinder us from moving forward.  These hindrances can begin to build jams or cause obstacles in our life when we refuse to move forward psychologically. Seeing little happening at this time is often due to our inability to gain the full understanding what to do with the time we have.

 

When we are in the space where nothing seems to be happening little do we know that’s when everything is happening. This area of time is fertile ground because whatever we plant or water during this season is what we produce when it’s time to harvest. Those that use this time wisely know that during this hour, the time becomes now to hone our skills and master our craft. No one who goes into battle practices during the battle.

 

Many people get fooled into thinking that nothing is happening during this period when this period is proven to be the most crucial. It is the period where we either make it or break it. We have all been given a certain amount of time with a specific goal of mastering ourselves.  If you allow yourself to get distracted you risk losing your place in life and have to go back to the beginning. Although this period can get a little lonely, the alone time done right will ensure that when you come out you’ll be the best you that you’ve ever been. And because you used your time wisely you’ll be that much more of a light to the people you want to help most. Most people can’t get past the point of not being able to sit still and work. In fantasy the dream seems closer but in reality it takes work. Have the courage to only dream for you but to go after everything else as well.

 

Catapulting your dreams into reality comes when you dedicate yourself to working on those areas that stop you from being the person you want to be. That’s what you are doing when you say yes to life. Saying yes to life often means that you will say yes to the moments like standstills that might not feel like movement because they feel like work. Work was created to bring out the best in you so that you could walk in your gift with a level of confidence and pride. For most of us the goal is to be able to take care of ourselves and our families with our gift.

 

When you use the time allotted to master yourself, no one can beat you at being you. No one can do the things you do because you have mastered you. And no one else can master you without your permission.  Use your standstill moment to help you gain control of your under-developed areas. Be creative while standing still so that you cut out those habits that would hinder you from moving forward.

Let it Rain


{My interpretation}

If he told us to be fruitful

and multiply

he must’ve put seed down

in us in order to do so

when the seed gets water

it is destiny revealed

but until that it is

destiny concealed

There are only two real seasons

seed time

or

harvest time

if your destiny hasn’t been manifested you are in

seed time

you have to die first

before you can bear fruit

I am not normal to the ground

I am in

if it didn’t grow naturally

then it had to be

planted

Did God plant me?

It’s not ordinary

it wouldn’t have happened

by itself

It normally wouldn’t grow

up in this type of

soil

But God says “I’m going to

force it to grow

that’s agriculture

But because God said

“Live”

He forced it to happen

God said “out of the

dry ground”

abuse

turmoil

pain

drugs

confusion

He forced it to happen

You have to understand that

you were planted

Before you had

a Bible

that sperm

out ran the rest

because you

were

planted

It was good that I have

been afflicted

had I not

I would not

know

that Glory of God

I didn’t like it

but I am better

for it

I couldn’t see my way out

cause I was planted

nothing buried

Don’t expect me to stay

buried

I have not been buried

I am planted in it

I may be planted here

but I ain’t staying here

I can’t do it because

I am gay

this is the way I hear it

if you want to know

Maybe if you heard it

like I did

you could understand

No weapon formed can

come against you

if you don’t mind

being different

He just watered my seed…

You can’t get blessed

because you don’t

obey

I have destiny

I have something

concealed in me

just through it out there

don’t judge

you’ll know who’s

got it by the

reaction

wonder who I’d be if I

was watered

There is a responsibility

in every blessing

the word is the water

that’s why it hasn’t

grown

Been trying to figure out

what’s wrong

Now comes the trauma

that the water

brings

the seed has no pain

there’s got to be some

discomfort

watering the seed

is trauma

to the soul

Growth is traumatic

I knew this

but I was hoping

it wasn’t so

you get watered

through exposure

If I was exposed to

what I could

be

I’ll never be the same

again

watering makes you make

changes

you can be watered

by opportunity

it will water

your destiny

exposed.

One man plants

another man waters

God gives the increase

you can’t get the finished

product

without the process

We are going to have some

stories to tell

when we get

there

I don’t owe anybody but

God

water each other

we have to serve

each other

give and it shall be

given to you

pressed down

&

shakin’

together

getting to the next level

ain’t easy

you have to really

have faith

I know this is about

growth

but you’re right

I’m stretching

it hurts to grow

it alienates you

you don’t fit in

people like you

as long as you fit

their standard

but when you outgrow

their environment

they don’t like you

“Goodbye!”

you ought to change too

you use different tools

for seed time

and harvest time

sowing equals weeping

bearing precious seeds

doubtless

you can’t have no doubt

you ca’t have ‘any’ doubt

you got to believe this

for yourself

I was created for this

and I don’t even know

what this iS

I believe it

It is your faith

not anyone else’s

I got to get the right

tools

faith, to bring it in

if I got the faith for it

but I can still bring it

in

No weapon formed against me

shall be able to prosper

I got faith for it

for 2015, I got faith

for it

I gotta “Rejoice”

you might sow it in tears

but you’ll reap in

Joy

can’t be miserable

I gotta snatch me

some joy

This is my NOW

Don’t work where I have not

given you permission

work in the area you’re

permitted

If it doesn’t bother you

anymore

that’s how you

know you’re coming

to the end

of a ‘thing’

it’s time for me to

offer it up

I don’t feel sorry for

myself

I offer it up

work it out

you cannot achieve

the promise

without the

process

the process brings you

to the promise

water what works in your life

Leave those dead bones

alone

you’re coming to a

Season

of

Greatness

Water what’s Divine

in you

Don’t waste the water

water what’s good

what’s just

what’s pure

what’s fruitful

Always look up

Don’t see the living

amongst the dead

God’s going to change me…
