Negativity is not intelligent. It is always of the ego. The ego may be clever, but it is not intelligent. Cleverness pursues its own little aims. Intelligence sees the larger whole in which all things are connected. Cleverness is motivated by self-interest, and it is extremely short-sighted. Most politicians and business people are clever. Very few are intelligent. Whatever is attained through cleverness is short-lived and always turns out to be eventually self-defeating. Cleverness divides; intelligence includes.

Life on The Corner- Are you clever or intelligent?

Quote from Eckhart Tolle’s A New Earth

It is okay to be at a place of struggle. Struggle is just another word for growth. Even the most evolved beings find themselves in a place of struggle now and then. In fact, struggle is a sure sign to them that they are expanding; it is their indication of real and important progress. The only one who doesn’t struggle is the one who doesn’t grow. So if you are struggling right now, see it as a terrific sign — celebrate your struggle.

Musical Motivation- Tamar Braxton “Love and War” 

I know this song came out a few months ago but I can’t get it out of my head. Its for a good reason though, I love it. I rarely listen to the radio these days because I don’t like the quality of music being produced, even by some of the biggest stars. This song reminds me of a real old school R&B song. You relate to it when you hear it. You want to play it. It evokes a certain emotion, takes you somewhere. That’s what music is suppose to do. Not to mention she, her, Tamar did that on the vocals. She sounds amazing. 

When I do fall in love I’ll really blast it. Way to go Tamar.

Musical Motivation- Solange Knowles “Losing You” 

This girl clearly walks to the beat of her own drum and it works for her. She is a prime example of what being true to yourself can lead to. The beat is ridiculous and the tone and feel is unlike anything we’ve heard before. Much needed right now, because I’m too bored with the music that’s out there. Check out her True album, its everything.

Can’t leave without mentioning the colorful fashions. Only Solange can rock a orange suit with pumps. Love the curly always. xo
