The monkey


This is for those who get broken and offended easily by name calling and profanity of others.

My great grandfather once told me, in life you will meet people who will call you many names. Some will call you a pig,  a vulture,  a hyena, a donkey, a hippo, a dog, let it be no different like when you call yourself a lion. 
What matters is you knowing your name and honor it, the name of your grandfather’s before me, a name that you will pass down to your children and grandchildren like I have to you like it was done to me under the stars of the glorious night skies. The name Chemirmir means The Shimmering Arrow. 

So live like a shining arrow and go far in life wherever your destiny sends you. Like the winds that the arrow pierces through its soul. Let no name that you may get called break your spirit down. Learn more than you listen. See beauty more than you dream of. Speak kindly even to those who don’t speak kindly to you.
We were walking in the forest, I was lost in his teachings and I didn’t know where we were going. He paused and took a long breath gazing down to me with smiling eyes that I could see the reflection of my soul in them. It was like he was giving me a gift through his eyes of how i should look at the world. 
He softly asked, look up the tree. See that beautiful monkey?. I have had seen that monkey before many times, I and other kids on my family thought it belonged to the British colonials who lived there before my great grandfather  and they forgot to take it with them when Kenya gained independence. It was a humble and shy monkey which it only got close to my Uncle. 
My great grandfather reached unto tthe belly of his pocket and got out a mango and gave it to me to give it to thr monkey and told me not to be afraid, for if I get afraid I will never gain a friend in the animal kingdom. The monkey came down and took the mango and run back up the tree and it had the best time of its life like I did.
On our way back we passed by a cow pen and my great grandfather called one cow a foolish sheep. He turned to me and asked me did that cow got offended. I said no. Then he said the cow heard me right?. I said yes! And he said unto me be like that cow, no matter what people call you don’t dwell on it. 
They may call you what they want but truth is, they’re the ones who harbor evil in them. Don’t hate them or fight with them, just don’t become like them or what they call you, and most of all don’t become friends with them. 

The world is big so we can avoid those who we don’t want to be close to. Remember a lion never goes to sleep where crocodiles call home. From now on and ever, try to make positive of all things.

“Perhaps, being called a monkey is a compliment. You live care-free and relentless, who ever said that’s a bad thing?”

Be a gift to who you’re going to become 


I write a lot to communicate with the deep spirit of my future-self.  So today like it will be in the near and distant days to come I can read what my past self was thinking for he has wisdom. 

In these writings I could feel and hear all the versions of me that I was fortunate to live as. I try to honour them by living the way they believed a warrior they wanted to be should be.
The reason it is wise to write for our future -selves is because our future self is often caught up in battles against emotions and many other things that are dreadful and heartbreaking, and he or she needs to be reminded to be spirited. And there’s no one who’s a better teacher to do that but who you are today. You’re part of the past that the future relies on. Be a gift to who you’re going to become.

We are made of so much more 


​I am neither poor nor rich. I am nothing and also everything.  I am unfurling of life and also innerself which is like space. You do not know me, but with my given name you will call me and know only a breath of me by it, but like the wind spirit is what I truly am.

 I live by it, travel like it, live like it, breath it for I was raised by it  and it is also my fate to end up like it.
I do not have what the world says a person should have. I only have a soul to give it’s energy in the world that needs it. 

The warrior is only a vessel to carry these all for my soul needed a vessel that cannot be easily broken.

The gift 


We all come into this life with talents, so we could be gifts to others. We have abilities which if we put them to use, they would be profitable to us and useful to the world.

 If we would trust life and ourselves a little more, we would do what comes naturally, what we are good at, giving it all that we’ve got. 
The world will really appreciate it and reward us greatly. Remember only when you love something then will you truly want it to be better, and be better for it. You must give heart to what you want to be alive.

Balance 


Balance your ability to be ambitious and patient to be on the same path as your dream. Be curious about life, and go beyond natural. Try to push your limits beyond your comfort, and always try not to dwell on comfort, for when we aspire to reach further we become able to reach for things we never imagined before. Make it part of your life enjoyment to see and try different things. Sometimes sleep early and wake up early. Things in life seem difficult because we tend to see things with an obstacles caved mind. Tear the obstacles and free yourself so you can be flexible to go beyond and do much than whats written on the walls of your belief.
