"Getting a grip!": On perspective, respect and game.
By Yahmeesh Yh'mar Akbar I
Cross-dressing, is usually reserved for gay men. Tyler Perry is no exception. I recently ran across, a vlog, where TD Jakes, was given a million dollar endowment by Perry. In front of Jakes parishioners, Perry, was casted, into the multi million dollar game, of prosperity preaching. Tyler, then commenced his service, with spiritual reprobation of haters. Next, he cast out the spirit of censure, reserved at homosexual preachers, by laying hands on Jake, who then , received his "holy ghost" and big pay off.
"All the world's a stage,
And all the men and women merely players; They have their exits and their entrances, And one man in his time plays many parts, His acts being seven ages." William Shakespeare
In this act, we shall call it, "catching and pitching"; befitting of homosexual behavior.
I told my son, "if I was in control of the things I wanted, I wouldn't want shit for you, your sister, or your mama. I would be high, drunk and homeless. When I put forward what's in Michael's best interest and not Gods."
My father was abusive, seemingly absent and chocked with game; in that order. So I know bullshit. I finished by telling Quincy, "I didn't ask God to make me responsible for my actions, or for integrity. I got those tools from my family. And if you ever decide what I'm doing isn't enough and need drugs in your life, I won't be getting high with you. If you decide to become homeless to "show me!" I ain't living on the street with you. But my heart will go out to you."
My son, seems to believe, if things aren't apportioned to his liking, he can harass you, endlessly. But he's only 13. Don't they all?
He had the game twisted.
Fast forward: Bri's boyfriend. Who's texting him, while I'm chaperoning her? Right. None of my business.
So after meditating, I debriefed him, on the above inventory and told him, "Who am I to judge anyone's game? Water finds it own path. Players, are of service, sexually, and pimps are of service mentally." I continued by telling him, " A old pimp once said , "rappers make millions of dollars and could be whoever they want, but they want to be pimps." He went on to say, "it's not the money there attracted to, but the game, that's right here in my head." -Filmore Slim-
I said, " I've learned more game married, than I had playing, and that I'm learning about personhood."
I told him, "I used to pray on people's influence over me. I'm a slave to impression. I'd measure my integrity by your experience until I'm walking around with an inferiority complex."
Thank God for parenthood.
One of my dads favorite sayings were, "your better get a grip!" I never quite understood my father's wisdom, but he got it across by "hook or by foot". He was zero tolerance: high or not.
He pushed me to recognize "the real." Because addiction, gang-banging, rape, and murder was real on my block. And my block was five minutes long.
The Real meant:
And if it that ain't working
Apply proper consequences.
and according to Francis Cress Welsing, "this system attacks people of color, particularly people of African descent, in the nine major areas of people's activity: economics, education, entertainment, labor, law, politics, religion, sex and war."
It was a crash course in ghetto, genetic survival "by any means necessary" for the future of my progeny and my manhood.
My daddy told me, "Fuck em and feed em fish!" Which meant, nobody has a monopoly on the truth.
He was teaching me to: trust God, clean house and let go! cause I wasn't in control.
He was teaching me how to surrender.
Surrender, to a power greater than himself. To the God, of my own understanding.
"God does not change the condition of any people unless they themselves make the decision to change. If God wills any hardship for any people, no force can stop it. For they have none beside Him as Lord and Master" Sura 13:11
..."That is because Allah is the (only) Reality, and because whatever else they invoke besides Him is Falsehood; and that God is the Most High, Most Great."
Peace be upon you.
