It took me a while as I walked my life here on earth (still walking) to realize what an old saying (proverb) my primary school teacher in Jamaica, Mrs. Bodden, taught me (or rather, what I would hear her repeat from time to time) when I was eight years old meant. ‘All that glitters is not gold”, she would say. Things are not always what they seem, or the attractive external appearance of something is not a reliable indication of its true nature. Even the bible says the arm of man will fail you, you dare not trust your own! I was one, who wanted to see the good in all things and everyone, my perception of life is that there is good in everyone. When I often would see people true colors come out, I was shocked and hurt for long. Hardly able to believe that I was that naive, and that I made the same mistakes over and over again, until I realized, when I became who I am, Obara Meji, that you repeat life lessons until you get the meaning, until you learn. This world has harsh realities, and when they hit, it is what some would call a wake up call, a reality check, and even so, I was/am the person to still believe that good still exist. I refuse to believe, to accept that so many of the world’s inhabitants are so bad. But it is true, most of the world’s inhabitants, are really no good. O ma se o! (such pity)




I remember a time when I would cry because of some changes in my life. I was one that if I got close to someone and they left my life (lost friendships) I would cry and miss them terribly It was not until I became awake that I realized that these thing have to happen, changes are expected in order to have balance in the world and in our lives.

This came to me just now while I sat watching television and I want to share, I do not know where it came from, I just heard it, saw it and thank God I have a platform on which to share it. Read it, explore it, comment if you will, but most importantly learn from it.

At the risk of sounding naive or any other word used to describe what I am about to say, I must confess to you all that I had no idea that you could find information about soul groups on the internet or any place else. Yes, I know people speak of the soul and of spirits and of conscious beings, but as soul groups, I had never heard of it until taught by my teachers my spiritual elders.  I have never looked it up nor have I ever questioned the name when told to me by my non-physical elders. Last night while I surfed the net I, by chance goggled soul group and it came up, I was surprised,quite happily I must admit. I read some of what was written in a few of the articles, and some had good information, though they did not fully explain everything, or perhaps what I know is different from their knowledge.




Yazzy our blogger sent me this email last night in support of yesterday’s post on “reality versus Illusion” in the world where we live. Yazzy, I thank you for this, you know I love reading and I am still searching for answers to many questions I have. While I do not take everything I read as Law, I rely on my own intelligence and spiritual greater sense to weed out truth from fiction. I am a logical person I believe, but there are things that challenge logic as we know it here in on this earth plane, and this is due to the human being’s limitation of the mind.
