On this Rock, I Shall Roll!

Sometimes, I ask myself “did I REALLY sign up for this?”  The answer remains “yes!”  Life is life is life and continues to be life.  Each day brings a new whirlwind adventure.  When one subscribes to live the artiste lifestyle, only a fellow artiste will understand.  When one subscribes to live the spiritually sounds lifestyle, only spiritually active persons will understand.  

Over the past twelve months, Spirit/Life/Creation has lead me to several locations to fulfill the mission(s) and purpose(s).  During these treks, I have learned more about self and sociological situations which cause suppression of life.  Life must be lived, according to several factors/determinants.  Observations have revealed that most persons under the dictates of a religious/pseudo-spiritual order are underdeveloped, unhappy and lack knowledge of self.  We are equipped with an innate understanding of good, bad, right, wrong, nice, mean, happy, sad, smart, dumb, functioning properly versus functioning improperly.  Now is the time to simplify and make live organic, once more.  The Industrial Revolution, Sexual Revolution, Onslaught of Misinterpreted Abrahamic Religions (Hebrewism/Judaism, Islam and Christianity), Western Medical System (including Pharmaceutics) have complicated life in a very detrimental way.  

The aforementioned imbalances in society are the reasons why I continue to push and create works to assist others on their respective paths in life.  As I continue to settle in my new home of Philadelphia, the solidifying of certain things is the confirmation that I am in the right place.  Furthermore, I am learning that other folks that I know are relocating to Philadelphia, too.  It must be something in the atmosphere.  One wonderful opportunity is that I will be a guest co-host on Internet radio show, ‘Urban Therapy with Sun‘.  The show will broadcast on Wednesday, Aug. 27 from 8:30-10 PM.  The show’s topic will be an analysis of some nuances within the  Black Conscious Community.  www.blogtalkradio.com/sun752

Other updates are as follow:

  • ‘Creation Expenses for The Cells’ is still underway.  The crowdfunding campaign will help with the costs of publishing my 2nd book, The Cells of the Tissue That Should Feel, and organizing an official book release.  Independent artiste work very hard and sacrifice a lot for the integrity of their works/souls.  Come join the few that donated already!  http://www.gofundme.com/9457rw

Painless Contractions

On Friday, 4 July 2014, I vacated New York City to begin the clearance of past troubles/stressors.  The clearance promised to birth the next phase of living.  As proclaimed in past , Summer 2014 will be dedicated to the attainment of personal and professional goals.  On the creative arts front, the focus is on publishing of second book, The Cells of the Tissue That Should Feeland finding a producer for the show ‘The Flows: An Evening of Elements‘.  My life experiences afford a rich and varied perspective of many nuances.   On the other front, I am finalizing plans to launch Cafe Provisions.   The company will offer vegetarian cuisine, holistic health consultations and energy/healing massage works.  Also, a veggie food truck is in the plans.

During this trek, I traveled from New York City to Philadelphia to Richmond, VA to Atlanta, GA.  It has been true bliss.  I followed Spirit and it has not failed at all!  On a virtually nonexistent travel budget, generosity and support from “strangers” have been priceless.  Philadelphia  offered a great dose of “brotherly love”.  That stop was very rejuvenating.   Richmond, VA was quite fulfilling to see family and a few dear friends.  Again, my being was refreshed.  But, the refreshment had detoured for a minute.  The part of trip from Richmond, VA to Atlanta, GA was problematic.  From big travel errors to delays, I missed a lot of connections in Charlotte, NC and Atlanta, GA.  For anyone that knows me know that I will file a formal complaint about poor service in a heartbeat.  Great hospitality and customer service are quite important to me, since that is my background and I fully understand how to deliver it.  I received recompense for troubles caused.

The roads leading to rejuvenation/refocus

The roads leading to rejuvenation/refocus

After spending quality time with family and reaching out to a few good (old and new) friends, I carry on to next part of journey.  That is a city called Tampa/St. Petersburg, FL.  Updates soon come!

W/in W/out

Poles are pulling

Sand is scraping

Away the lime buildup

Caustic measures

Non-analytic divides

 

Dividing the footsteps

Seen brain thoughts

Felt soul matters

Know spirit walks

Towards that place

 

When time tells

Of the coming hours

Only existing

In illusionary measures

Beginning an end

 

Shifts, worlds collide

The Sun star watches all

Ra above, on surface, below

Moonlit lakes

Trembles of an aching belly

 

Eruptions are a must

Release the tension

Power never corrodes

Static in motion

Ending a beginning

“Getting My Meds”

To manage the symptoms of
Post Traumatic Slave Syndrome
Separation Anxiety
Don’t you know dis-ease
Signifies an imbalance
Inside and out
Caustic fumes of the outside world
Assuming truth from the years of bullshit
Shoved up my nose and down my throat
Creating the cycle of torture
To grow into self-hatred
To train to never restore trust
To develop into destruction of a civilization

I am sick
You are sick
We are sick
They are sick
So…what is the prognosis?
Analysis underway
I see a woman brown/black/colorful
And I see an enemy
I see a man containing same hues
And I see a threat
I see a child gleaming and ready to learn
And I see a reason to run
I see White, Arab, Asian and Latino male
And I place him on a higher pedestal

That is some sick shit
But that is what happens when I am sick
You are sick, we are sick
Sick with a twisted mind
Co-created in a laboratory
Laboratory of Betrayal
Studying all historical accounts from every angle
Only feeding the brain
Yet you know all answers except one
How did we get here in 2012? 2013? and beyond
Arabs cracking the codes to the whites
White man created EVERY problem we know
All Black people were vegan and spiritually escalated
Homosexuality was never practiced prior to 1607
Infidelity didn’t exist because vocabulary nonpermissive
Delusion

We are co-creators of all
Life includes polarities
Selective amnesia is the diagnosis
Depending on a system
That profits off of our demise
Now back to us
Falling from “perfection”
Attuned to nature
Whales, foxes and canaries remain connected
Tree roots, crashing waves and sedentary rocks stabilized
Earth screams
Sum permeates
Moon cries
Fire wild
Purging the coating
Over our three eyes

— from the forthcoming book, The Cells of the Tissue That Should Feel

‘The Cells’ are Coming!

Greetings, Greetings to All Easpoet’s Blog Followers,

You have found the best subject to follow…….E as Poetlove Water!  This blog should have assured you that clicking on ‘follow’ was niceness!  If for some strange reason that doesn’t resonate, then here is a next reason.

The Cells of the Tissue That Should Feel — the second published book by Etaniel Ben Yehuda (E as Poetlove Water). ‘The Cells’ is the extroverted communication that follows the debut book release of The Chronicles of Air, Water and the Source (iUniverse Publishing). The voice is louder, the verbal “smacks” come with more force, the sociopolitical commentary envelopes clear analysis and personal support is more substantial. The writings are formatted as poetry and prose.

Some featured works included are: “As the Nile River Rises”, a poem that speaks on current manifestations of Arab racism against Indigenous East African groups; “Markwan’s Letter”, a honestly written “letter” from the perspective of a young Black man living in urban USA; “Why I Love…..” Series, a series of poem that shares the reasons/cultural nuances that I love about various places I have lived and/or visited; and “The Connection”, it takes a humorous approach to the benefits of eating healthy, natural foods.

Expected Release Date: July 22, 2014

For the next several weeks, I will post previews of excerpts of specially-selected poems/prose from ‘The Cells’. Pre-ordering will begin on July 1, 2014. The book will be available for purchase at http://www.easpoetlovewater,com. Also, stay tuned for special offers/promotions. Thank you to all for past, present and future support! Bliss
