This is my year-end round up for 2016 and my forecast for 2017. 

 

At the end of 2015, December 4th, 2015 to be exact, my 22-years of employment with a company I put my life, blood, sweat and tears into ended.  I was almost devastated.  When this happened, I was not prepared for what I would do for the rest of my working life. I really had not planned for this. 


During 2016 I spent most of my time looking for a job, re-engineering myself and simply trying to figure out what I was going to do. After being turned down and rejected by many employers, I didn’t give up but I to a great extent became discouraged and had to reach deep inside to find the strength to keep going…  

 

During 2016 it seemed like everything I tried wasn’t working even though I thought I was doing all the right things.  It seemed like many of the good things I had were ending. Even though I wasn’t broke or busted, I had lost my direction.  I kept thinking about my money running out. I kept thinking about all of the “what if’s.”  What if I don’t find a job in time? What if I lose my house?  What happens if I can’t pay my bills? 

 

Even though I try to be the one who always thinks of the positive, I found myself thinking of only the negatives…. What I found out about myself is that I am human and not exempt from all of the trials and tribulations of humanity…


I used to think I was invincible. I used to think I was infallible…

I found out that as much as I would like for everyone to believe that I am all this and all of that, I am simply a person susceptible to all of the many ups and downs life throws at you.  I found out that in many ways I was just not prepared for this shit…

 

Then to make matters worst, in July, my nephew Andrew died…  I thought…  “What the hell is going on?”  I thought, “What the fuck… Why is life going in this direction? Like many of our friends and relatives, I was pretty tight with Andrew and his death was so unexpected… It just came from nowhere it seemed…

 

Man, losing Andrew was a tuff one for everybody… I know we will all recover from this, but I don’t think I will ever get over that blow…  And man, I can’t imagine how his wife, children, my sister, brother in law and their children feel.

 

There were so many other things that ended or seemed to work me during 2016…  I must say this was a tuff year for me… This is not to say that I am not thankful or appreciative for everything I experienced in 2016…  But if I must be honest, I really had to work hard emotionally and spiritually to get through this year.  And, I am still licking my wounds.  Man, 2016… Thank you very much …

 

But all is not bad… And it’s OK to admit it when things are fucked up… If you go through life not admitting and seeing things for what they are, you will stay in some shit for a really long time before you realize you stink and the environment you are in stinks.  The sooner you see it for what it is, the sooner you will change it.

 

I had always thought about leaving that company… In many ways I hated working at that company.  But the money was good. I did a good job; I met some great people there. I traveled… I had a lot of fun. I did some great things. But the truth is, I became complacent and lost myself in my role as an employee of another man’s company.  I got too comfortable along time ago…  I forgot about my personal dreams and my personal goals in an effort to faithfully set and meet the company’s goals…  I forgot about all of the God given talent the universe gave me.  I got lost in the corporation’s vision, mission and purpose and lost sight of my own…  When the corporation was done with me, it thanked me for my service and said good luck…  See ya…  Have a great life.

 

In my dismay, I didn’t realize that my former life had ended and it was now time to have a Great Life.  I knew I had to do something, but I just wasn’t sure what…

 

So during 2016, I suffered under the belief that the only way to make it was to find another job… During 2016, I found that even with all of the education and experience, there was yet something missing that I could not put my finger on…

 

Finally toward at the end of this year I found a new spiritual direction to move in through much meditation, thought and learning… I came to the realization that that job did not and does not define me and that I am all that I need to be with or with out a “job.”


I know some might question this and maybe say “what?”  What do you mean by that? What the hell do you mean? You don’t need a job?  I didn’t say that. I said the job does not define me and that I am all that I need to be with or without a job.  The truth is… I love me… The truth is… I define me.  The truth is… I am… I am all that I want wish and hope to be… The truth is… I am getting and becoming a better me everyday and I do not need an outside source to prove that to myself…  There is something inside of me that keeps revealing that to me everyday and in so many ways…

 

One way to find out what something is, you have to remove the outer layers… We see this in all forms of life.  Take the plant world for instance.  For example an orange or a piece of fruit… In order to get down to the core of its being, (the seed), you have to pull back or peel the outer skin off. You have to remove much of the inside to get to the seed.  The seed is that thing which is planted in the ground and creates new life.

 

There’s only one way to find out what’s in a beautifully wrapped gift for instance. You must remove all of the beautiful wrapping… One way to find out who you really are is to take off all of the layers…  Take off your clothes. Take off your make up.  Take off your wig… Take off the car.  Take off the house.  Take off the jewelry. Take off the swagger. Take off the trinkets. Take off the job. Take off the status…. Take off your skin. Take away the pretty wife. Take away that fine handsome rich husband. Take away those beautiful children. Take out all of the body parts. Take off that fine, skinny, fat, beautiful, ugly, well built, deformed, fit, black, white, brown, yellow body. Take it all off and what do you have?

 

You simply have the soul…  The seed... Sometimes it seems like it is buried under so many layers, you can’t even find it…  However, it is there…. As ugly or as beautiful as it is… It is there. The soul is like tiny stardust.  It is so tiny yet so big, you need a spiritual microscope to see it.  Or to look outwardly, you need a spiritual telescope to find it in the universe so to speak. It’s way out there among the stars. And, even when you get a glimpse of it, in this world and in this dimension, it is like an illusion.  It is almost elusive. Sometimes when you see it, it scares you. Sometimes when you see it, it’s hard to look at because you can’t believe that that is really who you are… 

 

Man, sometimes things happen to you in this life that make you take a real good look at yourself. I think if I don’t do that from time to time, I have a tendency to get lost…  Admit it… So do you…

 

I think I discovered a bit more of my soul this year…  Some of it I like… And, some of it I don’t… I’m working on the part I don’t like….  I’m doing surgery on it.  I’m  reshaping it. I’m refashioning it.  It’s not easy to do, because my soul is still buried underneath many layers that I have to peel off and dig it out everyday… It is elusive or sometimes laying dormant waiting for me to find it again…

 

Sometimes I forget about my soul because I’m so busy and preoccupied with trying to feed my body… I believe losing my job was one way for me to rediscover who I am… I believe the passing of Andrew was another way the universal made me re-examine myself.  Re-examine what really matters…

 

That’s my round up of 2016… All in all I would have to say 2016 was the ending of a cycle or better put, the completion of a cycle for me…  From a numerological standpoint, I believe the numbers bear me out…

 

2016 is actually equal to 9, which is the number of completion. 2 plus zero plus 1 plus 6 is equal to 9…  2 +0+1+6 = 9. I may lose some of you when I go here. I know some will say to themselves about now, “OK I’m good… I’m not into all that numerology stuff.”  OK well that’s cool.  That’s you but this is me.”  This is for me and for those who wish to explore the unknown.  This is for those who understand that our world is based on a binary system of 1 and zero, off or on and it is cyclical in nature.

 

Spiritually speaking, I came to the realization in 2016 that the completion of an employment cycle occurred for me at the end of 2015. I felt its impact in my life and came in to the knowledge of its spiritual significance in 2016. It took me all of 2016 to spiritually and emotionally accept the fact that I am at the end, at the completion of a cycle in my life.  It was through listening to a spiritual person teaching on this subject that I came to this realization. When the light bulb finally came on in my head, I finally stop resisting the change, and said to myself, “OK I’m good.  Now I can move on.“

 

Now that I am physically, mentally, emotionally and more importantly spiritually through that cycle, I am ready to move on… Whether I want to or not. Whether you believe it or not, this is happening to you in someway also…  It is happening to everyone on the planet in one way or another.

 

In 2016 I mourned the end and completion of my nephew’s life cycle. I mourned the end of my career cycle with that company. I dug up my garden and planted seeds in 2016 that I know will spring forth to new life in 2017.

 

Whether you agree with me or not, Andrew’s passing from death into another world in 2016 was the completion of his life cycle here on earth… He is now experiencing a new life cycle in another space and time.

 

All of the things we went through in 2016 that appeared to be bad or appeared as if something was ending were actually good things that happened due to life’s natural cycle.  The loss of a love one, the loss of a job, the end of a marriage, the completion of a school year, the completion of a project and on and on are actually good things if you are able to see things through your third eye. Sometimes these things are so hard to deal with because you are not ready and sometimes not able without the help of something or someone to help you figure out how to let go. You’re resisting the change…

 

The best way to overcome an impediment is to give in to the impediment.  Once you are relaxed, (in Christianity they call it surrendering), the area of the mass will become smaller and you can then make a paradigm shift.  To put it in simpler terms, once you say to yourself to hell with it, I’m going to make it anyway, doors begin to open for you.

 

Yes I know that Andrew’s death was a bitter pill for us to swallow. However, we have no other option but to accept the natural occurrence and cyclical call of the universe.  We have to accept the beautiful thing Creation has done for Andrew.  I have to accept the beautiful thing the universe did for me by ending my job. I have to accept the universal authority in bringing my tenure with that company to completion. Since I did not make my move to change my circumstances years ago when I was complaining about how I was sick of the job and some of the people I had to work with, the universe did it for me. It actually gave me what I asked for. There’s that old adage again, “be careful what you ask for.”

 

My Forecast for 2017

 

2017 is an exciting year we should all be excited about because 2017 is equal to the number one, which is the number of new beginnings.  The number of rebirth… Whether you continue living on this earth in 2017 or experience the transition, it is all-good because it is a time of rebirth and new beginnings. 

 

If you are going to start a new project, start a new company, start a new job, have a baby, get married, start something new or whatever, 2017 is the year to do it…   

 

If you know anything about numerology you should know that this coming year, 2017, is the year of the One! That means that 2017 equals 2 plus zero plus 1 plus 7 equals 10 and 1 plus zero equals 1! That means that we are on the 1 starting January 1st, 2017. 2 +0+1+7 = 10. 1 + 0 = 1! We are now back on the One!!!


Get up for the down stroke! Everybody get up! That means we are now back on the perfect number, which is One starting January 1, 2017…


If you believe and understand how our universe works, this is your year to do whatever it is you want to do. You (We) are on the 1…. One is the perfect gift… It is the perfect number by which all things are made of. There is only one perfect being… and that being is God. That being is you! You are God!
God is one! That Being manifests Itself in you… You are the One! You are God manifest in material form… Just like the plants, animals, planets, stars, atoms molecules, cells, earth,wind and fire....


This is your year. Get down on the One…. Get down on it. “Get up for the down stroke, everybody get up…. “ We’re on the One! We are one! Funkadelic, James Brown, George Clinton, and Frankie Beverly had it right.  Every thing is on the one.  You got to get on the one to be aligned with the funk, the vibration, and the magical force of the universe. We are one, said Frankie…


There is really only one number in the universe and it is One! What I am telling you is not some bullshit I just thought up. This is the science and secret mathematical magic of the Universe.


This is how you and I were made.  One broke Itself up into many (a gazillion) pieces.  So many that you cannot even count that high.  This is how you and I were made. Now when all of these pieces are put back together in their original form, what number do you get?  You get back to one…  There is only one God, One Creator and that one is you and I. 


Remember that The One, (The Creator) broke itself up into zillions of pieces to make you and me.  When you are on the one, you are on the largest, biggest number there is.  This is no bigger number than one. One is so big you can’t even divide it… You can break it up. You can separate it but you can’t divide it. Why? Because it is One.  We are One.! One is in all numbers. It is the infinitive. You can’t get away from one. Even if you leave everything and everyone you can’t get away from the one. Because one is you! One is you and all of your ancestors wrapped up in you.


This is not double talk.  Just think about what I said purely from a mathematical standpoint. Yes, of course you can divide one by any number, but you simply get a fraction of 1. A piece of one... The higher or larger the number you use to divide one, the smaller the fraction or derivatives of 1 you get.  That derivative is not bigger than one. It is fractionally smaller than one. It can never be bigger than one because it is a piece of one.  One is the shit!   You better get on the One!  That’s why funk is so rhythmically funky and gets all in your body and your soul and stands the test of time. It is on the rhythmic property of one.


You can capitalize on this number no matter whom you are, if you understand the significance of where the universe is at this time. The universe is in rebirth. It is time for new beginnings. This is the Age of Aquarius. We are no longer in the age of Pisces… We are in the Age of Aquarius…. I am so excited!!!

It is time to start new adventures. We are now on the One. We are starting all over again in a new space and time…


Obama’s cycle is ending and a new President is stepping in to his place in 2017. This is a new beginning.  He may not be your President, but a new political cycle is about to begin in our country and in our world in 2017.  You can’t stop that from happening. This is another example of the cyclical course of nature. Many crazy things are going to happen.  But no need to fret…  If you keep your mind, body and soul aligned with the polarity of the universe, great things are going to happen for you in spite of who is in the white house or who sits in Congress.


Things are going to happen and circumstances are going to create so much disruption in our universe that if you have not grasp the understanding, you will think everything has gone crazy….  But it’s OK.  It is through the chaos and confusion and disruption that the worlds were made. If you don’t believe it, go research it.


Think scientifically now...


It is through this chaos that great and powerful things are going to happen. But not to worrying… Through all of this confusion, chaos, friction and stirring a new creation will be made.  Don’t forget… That’s how your mama and your daddy made you.  Your brother heard your mama and your daddy in the other room making love and making you and he thought they were fighting.  There was a whole lot of ruckus going on in there.  Through all of that screaming, bumping, fusing, confusion, friction and rubbin, you were made.  I know that is so crude.  But that is how the universe works.  Look what a wonderful thing your mommy and daddy made in all that f--king. They became One and made you. Look what a crazy universe Creation made.  Wow!


2017 is the time to take advantage of all of the ideas in your mind. Don’t worry about what’s going on politically in 2017… You have some much more power over your life than the politicians and naysayers do. 


Now is the time to move your ideas from thought into action. For the universe will respond quickly to your beckon call. I say now, because you do not have to wait until 2017 to get started.  You can start right now and the new life will come into being in 2017. Now is the time to take a chance on new adventures because the universe is at a new beginning.  Even though we have suffered many and loss some precious love along the way in 2016, thank God, we have a new beginning in 2017.


Astrologically speaking. The old guard is dead… The new millennium is here and the stars have realigned.  We are now moving forward into the new world to come…


The old guard has died out and the new guard has emerged awaiting your command.  The genie says snap your fingers and click your heels.  Your wish is my command, she says.  Ask for whatever you want and I will do it says the Universe…


This is your year! This is my year! This is our year! The new world begins, starting now!


Remember we are the off springs of the One Creator of all things. In 2017 we are back on the One.  We have an opportunity to do so many amazing things. Take your rightful place in this world and the world to come!


Now get up off your ass and dance!
