ENVIRONMENT

(Niagara Falls: Google images)

Environment affects our destinies, dreams and life; directly and indirectly. The type of environment you are living in has a greater impact on you than your family. Environmental forces are POWERFUL. To the extent your environment is developed that is how far you can go. If your environment is small and uncivilized; it will keep you small and uncivilized. The ONLY antidote is to STEP OUT of an environment which does not help your dreams and life path!

You cannot prosper in an unhelpful environment that is disharmonious to your aspirations, talents, potentials and visions. Manifesting our dreams are very easy when the environment is beautiful. What will make a fruit planted in a fertile soil not flourish? If you plant a tomato in a fertile soil; it will produce well. But plant that same tomato in an unfertile soil and you will see a different result! It will not produce well; it will only struggle and keep struggling for survival. The tomato planted in an unfertile soil ends up fruitless and withered! Many people have found themselves in this reality and it is quite unfortunate and sad!!

The last time I checked, NO ONE made it living in their “comfort zone.” Do you think that Rihanna could have been successful today as a Singer if she was still living in Barbados? Who would have known Nicki Minaj if she remained in Trinidad & Tobago? Brenda Fassie left Langa to Johannesburg and launched a very successful singing career. People like Buche Emecheta, Wole Soyinka and Chinua Achebe achieved a very successful writing career because they moved out of Nigeria. For example it was the London friends of Buchi Emecheta that encouraged and supported Buchi Emecheta to help her become a successful writer. Living in London helped Buchi Emecheta prove her worth as a talented writer. Buchi Emecheta is from Delta State, Nigeria and she is an award-winning author!

How about Chimaamanda Adichie? Though she is talented but her moving out of Nigeria to USA paved the way and made her become a very successful writer and even an award-winning writer!!  You see, these writers never achieved their success when they were living in Nigeria! Environment is VERY POWERFUL!!!  An environment can either mar or make your dreams; depending on the type of environment you are living.

Going back to the ancient times, Abraham (Spiritually honourarily known as the Father of all Nations in the Bible) never made it in his current location; even if it was his homeland. It was when he moved out to a new land he created and tasted wealth, success and opulence!! What about the Ascended Master Jesus Christ? He was born in Bethlehem a city in Nazareth. Buju Banton has told us that “rich man’s way is in the city…”

See beyond the shores of your horizon! BE DARING! Dare to manifest and be sassy and intrepid enough to step out of your comfort zone. Dreams do not come true in a comfort zone. Forget what the limiting beliefs and negative is telling you. Tell yourself the truth. NO MATTER how bitter, unbelievable, impossible and odd it sounds.

Cindy And Her Beautiful Bird

Cindy And Her Beautiful Bird is a children’s book, published by Christian Faith Publishing, Pennsylvania; USA. Cindy And Her Beautiful Bird was nominated for the 2020 Readers’ Choice Awards. (Side note: I will share the story of how my book got the nomination; keep reading). I love children; hence I purposely wrote this book for the children out there in the world! As a matter of fact, adult and parents can learn something too from Cindy And Her Beautiful Bird.

About Cindy And Her Beautiful Bird

Cindy and Her Beautiful Bird is an exquisite book about Cindy and her loving moments with Amy, her pet bird. This is a story of the intimacy and challenges of a little girl called Cindy and her beautiful songbird, Amy. Cindy’s bird, Amy, affected her positively. It shows how children can be attached with pets once a cordial relationship has been formed. In this story, Cindy showed us that children can have unwavering faith, even if it seemed goofy, unrealistic, and an illusion! Despite all odds about the whereabouts of Cindy’s bird, she kept believing and having faith.

I love children and I believe they are our hope for a better tomorrow, take good care of them and bring them up in the way they should go. —Kingsley Osajie

Children are like wet floors, anything that falls on them leaves an imprint.

—Kingsley Osajie

Every child on earth will love to be a superstar, every boy and girl will love to make it big…hold on to your dreams. —Brenda Fassie

I believe the children are our future, teach them well and let them lead the way; show them all the beauty they possess inside. —Whitney Houston

“I created a girl child Cindy—who had a beautiful bird called Amy and a brother whose name is Quimby. Cindy, a tender jolly girl whose unquenchable faith in the loss of her bird is remarkable and the relationship between Cindy and her bird is truly refreshing. Cindy and Quimby are my brainchildren. Yes, I love children.” —Kingsley Osajie

There are lots of moral lessons for children to learn from in Cindy And Her Beautiful Bird. It can be used as a bedtime story for children and I can assure you that every child out there will certainly enjoy reading it.

Nomination of Cindy And Her Beautiful for 2020 Readers’ Choice Award

When I began writing Cindy And Her Beautiful Bird I did not set the intention for it to be nominated for the Readers’ Choice Awards. But even as it is nominated it does not make me feel proud and I am certainly not proud of it. After all, it is just a nomination.

In 2011; I published my first book. On my way home from my publishers’ house I was in the car; I picked a newspaper to read and the next thing I saw on the second page was the news of 25 years old Serbian girl who won the Orange Prize for Fiction. Her name is Tea Obreht and the title of her book is Tiger’s Wife. I looked at Tea Obreht holding her Orange Prize Award and I marveled. On top of that, she was going home with £30,000! That was something illustrious, enviable and highly remarkable!

I wrote Cindy And Her Beautiful Bird in 2013 when I was in College. It took me this long to have it published because of the challenges I had (I will share my journey to becoming a published author in my next post). In 2020, Cindy And Her Beautiful Bird was officially born. It was no longer a manuscript; it became a published book. I felt happy seeing it published and holding it as a published book. Now, let me share with you how the nomination for the Readers’ Choice Awards began.

The Universe and the Cosmic Forces are always listening to us. This life is really wonder-full…so on this very fateful day; I was reading about this American singer Chanté Moore. What led me to reading about her was her song I See You In A Different Light featuring JoJo Hailey. (side note: I really love this song; especially where Chante Moore said “When did your kisses get so sweet baby…”). I never knew of this song until I watched a sweet-loving video it was used as a background music. Good, Good Loving! I tell ya!! (LMFAO).

After reading through her Wikipedia I noticed that she had more nominations than ACTUAL Awards. I was like, “damn! Please! Don’t give me any nominations! To hell with nominations! In fact, I refuse to have nominations. What are my doing with nominations? Give me the award. Not nominations.” This was how I said it sarcastically; I was just saying it after reading her Wikipedia. So I continued to make these comments sarcastically. I never knew that what I was refusing would come to me.

Like I said before, the nomination of Cindy And Her Beautiful Bird HUMBLED ME!  It is just a nomination not an actual award. It was a lesson for me that I was not in control. After making those sarcastic comments about the nominations of Chante Moore songs; I went about my day’s activities. Within one month, my book was nominated for Readers Choice Awards.

When I read the congratulatory message from the company I was dumbfounded. At that moment everything I said about Chante Moore started resurfacing. If it was to be a movie; we would see the flashback…and I had a flashback in my own case. I felt so TIRED! Because I did not expect it and the nomination I rejected sarcastically came to me. So it is really a lesson for me.

Reviews for Cindy And Her Beautiful Bird

“This book is a really great book for children. Unlike other books which show us the children happy and playful. It showed that Cindy had an unwavering faith in the quest to find her little bird who went missing. It’s easy to read and short. It was a wonderful read.”  Yinka Odufote, Nigeria

“My son and I read this book. As we read it, he really enjoyed the imagery. He tried to guess what was next, enjoying the surprise as well as how happy the bird made her. From my point of view, it was charming to read about her story. It’s refreshing to encompass the child’s nature so accurately. My son was just as charmed as I was at the cute story and the descriptions were vivid. Wonderful read! I look forward to reading more by this author!” Camille De Mott, USA

“The love for pets.”

“Cindy and her beautiful bird” is certainly a book to remember. It emulates and emphasizes the relationship and connection that can be established between children and pets.” Mariam Owoade, Nigeria

COVID19 and the Ugly Experience of Omah Lay in Uganda

(Omah Lay and Tems, source: Naira Metrics.com)

There was news that circulated the whole Nigeria and Africa in December 2020. It was news of how a Nigerian singer Omah Lay and his fellow singer Tems were arrested in Uganda and maltreated because of Corona Virus. The Ugandan officials said the duo (Omah Lay and Tems) did not follow COVID19 “protocols.” The bitter truth is that COVID19 is NOT in Africa the way it is in other parts of the world; but the GULLIBLE African leaders have made themselves puppets before Europe, USA and other countries of the world—to the extent that “whatever” direction they (the African leaders) are pushed they fall to. Are they really leaders?

Now, I do not usually follow the noise of the media but I remember hearing this information about Omah Lay’s experience in Uganda and how he was arrested in Uganda and treated like a thief because of the so-called COVID19. I was really disappointed by the actions of the Ugandan police. The question now is if it were foreigners (by foreigners I mean for example people from Europe or America; Caucasians) that came to perform in Uganda; would they treat them they way they treated Omah Lay and Tems? If really the Ugandan officials so cared for their citizens why did they not accept the COVID vaccine made by Madagascar? No, because the vaccine is from an African country they will not accept it.

(Omah Lay)

Omah Lay’s song Godly has been buzzing everywhere; so I downloaded it to my phone and listened to the lyrics. I was playing it while I typed this post. It is really touching; I was overwhelmed and enfolded in sobriety. I have been hearing the song but I did not pick interest in it until I went to an errand to the town today and I heard them play it across various places in the town; the lyrics are really touching. You can read the lyrics of Godly by Omah Lay here. Such experience of Omah Lay in Uganda can land someone in depression…I  never thought I would write a post about Omah Lay but his song Godly—born out of his “nightmare” in Uganda actually made me sit down to write this. It is not actually a funny experience—you do not want to be in that kind of reality. Omah Lay has his own side of the story; something which you would love to hear.

My final thought is that I just hope this COVID19 madness comes to an end because we have had enough of pretense and lies from the media, the so-called Nigerian leaders, other world leaders and people who have been “masquerading? COVID19 to perpetuate harm and evil on their fellow humans; the outbreak of this COVID19 revealed A LOT of things to me…!!!

Do You Do New Year Resolutions?

(picture: Google image)

And now…the New Year is here. I have been hearing many people talking about their New Year Resolutions. Right there from the radio people start pouring in their New Year Resolution; what does New Year Resolution mean to you? Do you do New Year Resolutions?

I used to do New Year Resolution but I stopped. Now, do not get me wrong. I am not saying it is bad for us to set intentions or want to achieve some things in our lives. It is perfectly okay but I want to remind you that change starts from the mind. Every moment is a manifestation; what I have grown to learn and understand is that having New Year Resolution makes you attached to your goals and dreams. Manifesting mavens and people who are on their journey to Enlightenment understands that attachment is a repellant energy.

When I first read Buddha say “Attachment is the root cause of suffering.” I dismissed it as just a cliché (Lols). Now I may have never gotten the same level of wisdom and knowledge like the Buddha. But something happened: after some time, I came across the teaching of detachment which I read from Deepak Chopra’s book Seven Laws of Spiritual Success. When I read the Law of Detachment; I was like WOW!!! The Buddha could not have said it any better! Buddha was right after all! I have read This Chopra’s book twice. Detachment is what I am growing more in because Doris Day has told us that Que Sera Sera.

(picture: Google image)

I want to tell you something about manifestation. It is “trickish” and never linear. “Play” with your manifestations and you become enticing to your dreams. In fact your dreams will be the ones chasing after you (side note: I am using the word “play” to mean detachment and levity. When Debbianne DeRose first told me to hold everything with LEVITY I did not quite agree until I realized attachment is against manifesting. Even the talented Nigerian singer Patoranking also advised us in his song Alubarika; he said “don’t take things too serious, just take time to have fun…” I used to be so attached to things and people but now I am handling everything with LEVITY. If you become attached to your dreams you are acting from the place of powerlessness, fear and desperation = repellant and negative energies!

When my life SHIFTED into a POSITIVE MOMENTUM; it had NOTHING to do with New Year Resolution! Let me explain, back then in 2017 I was having many difficulties and hardships—suffice to say that I was just living in rut and cycles; struggling and futility. Then in January 2018, my life took a turn around from the Ethereal… I remind you that the Intangible ALWAYS precedes the Tangible! In my full transparency, I did not make any New Year Resolution.

Later in that fateful January of 2018; I set a very powerful intention (NOT as a New Year Resolution). It came out from my mind as a BURNING DESIRE that something has to CHANGE in my life. The Universe nudged me and I followed up. On that Sunday morning, I lay me down on the bed, alone in the house; then I was inspired to script. I took my pen and paper and made a very powerful scripting; I also scripted for the Angels to show me vivid synchronicity that my requests have been heard and they did because I was enfolded with faith, confidence, mindfulness, happiness and peace that surpassed all understanding! Subliminally ASSURED I was that my requests have been heard!

I did that scripting for 21 days. Once I was done, I let go and forgot about it. This ritual was a GAME-CHANGER for me! Within 60 days my life shifted into a positive momentum; I began to experience abundance, help, healing and joy. Plus my dreams “awakened.”

I got my wealth of knowledge about the Law of Attraction and Manifesting from these four Divas: Sarah Prout, Jeannette Maw, Debbianne DeRose and Nathalie Thompson). Read my article about the Law of Attraction so that you will understand how Law of Attraction and Manifesting works (plus all hidden truths that you were never told in the book called The Secret—a book by Rhonda Byrne. Sadly, even The Secret does not have the “Secret” to Law of Attraction and Manifesting).

Now the thing about these four powerful women is that they recognize God, Angels, Fairy-Elfin-Friends, Spirit Guides, Cosmic Forces, Universe and Higher Power. They believe that WITHOUT these Greater Invisible Energies we CANNOT manifest! And that is TRUE—if you think you have all the power to yourself; you are setting yourself up for frustration and defeat. How do you manifest without the help of the Angels, Universe or the Cosmic Forces? Tell me how! It is so gut-wrenching and disappointing that many so-called Law of Attraction “experts” are now misleading people with wrong knowledge about Law of Attraction and Manifesting.

(Picture: Google image)

The bitter truth is that no matter what, we are not in control. You can write your New Year Resolutions and blah, blah, blah. But you do not have the final say and we are certainly not in full control in creating our realities.

Here is what this amazing Yoga teacher has to say:

“Whatever directions you look at, you NEVER know what’s coming….Our mind wants to know and likes to believe that we can plan our future…The truth we have to HUMBLY accept is, that we can only do and try our best, but the FINAL result of our efforts or desires is NEVER completely in our hands.

We have to SURRENDER our efforts and wishes to the Universe and learn to accept whatever the universe sends us…

We CANNOT determine what will happen but we can believe that anything that happens is exactly what NEEDS to happen in the MAGICAL game of life.

Life just happens. Do not take it personal.

We CANNOT understand logically why bad things happen or why our efforts won’t be rewarded. Some things just don’t make sense to our limited human mind.

If we go beyond the mind through meditation practice we might get a glimpse of the pure energy which underlies all creation and experience how all forms of existence/nature are just playing their assigned part in this divine play we call life…”

Tina Mundelsee, Yoga Coach and Teacher; www.tinastools.com

(Side note: Emphases in Tina’s article are mine)

When I first read this article from Tina Mundelsee I was overwhelmed and enfolded in goosebumps because I knew it was a BITTER TRUTH. I remind you that truth is not always sweet to the ears. Suffice to say that I was HUMBLED!

So, now that the New Year has come; the ideal thing is to hold your dreams in your heart; live with mindfulness, engage in self-care, self-love and get into cahoots with God/Universe, Angels and Cosmic Forces.

I would love to wrap it up with these powerful and overwhelming quotes below:

“We know that our willpower is a powerful force, and we find it hard to believe that there may be other (sometimes greater) energies at play in determining the outcomes of our lives. The idea that we may sometimes be called to surrender our own will to a greater force (or at least loosen our grip on the reigns of control), can conflict with what we believe to be the measure of an empowered person” -Jessi Kohlhagen

“Even when you think you have your life all mapped out, things happen that shape your destiny in ways you might never have imagined.” -Deepak Chopra

I am wishing us a VERY prosperous, illustrious, successful New Year filled with mindfulness and levity

Welcome to 2021

Tightest Hugs and Kisses,

Monkey For Lunch!

(Monkey: Google image)

This is a story told to me by my grandmother when I was in high school; hence I decided to share with you. I hope you enjoy it.

Long ago, in faraway land in an African village; there lived two men in one hut. One was blind and the other was lame. It was a famine period in the land.

One hot afternoon, these two folks sat together in their hut. Surrounded by the hut were bushes which served as homes to various animals. Shortly, the lame friend saw troop of monkeys in their compound. He imagined monkey soup and salivated relishing in the enjoyment of having monkey for lunch.

“If only I could get this monkey,” he cried.

“Where did you see monkeys?”His lame friend asked

“There are many of them in our compound here. There is even one on a tree staring at us. If I could walk I would shoot a monkey and cook a palatable soup to eat for us.”

The blind friend laughed and said “that would be delicious too. Even me, I am starving.” “There are monkeys outside and right here in our compound. Let us shoot them and cook for lunch.” Persuaded the lame friend.

Convinced, the blind friend said, “You will climb on my shoulders and tell me where to walk and where to stop. I will carry you and the gun to shoot the monkey so that we can cook a good soup for lunch.” The duo was salivating and lip-smacking on how they will eat the monkey.

The lame friend climbed on the shoulder of the blind friend and directed the steps of his blind friend. They came outside where the monkeys were in the cherry tree.

Lame friend fired his gun and a monkey fell. The others fled speedily out of range and sight. They carried the monkey joyfully to their hut. The two friends were filled with joy and happiness. The lame man built set the fire and began to prepare the stew.

As he stirred the pot, the blind friend asked “is the soup ready?”

“Not yet.” Answered the lame friend

All the while, the lame man was cooking the stew and because he was so hungry, lame friend keeps tasting it for flavor. Each time blind man asked, “Is it ready?” The lame friend has just put a large mouthful of hot stew in his mouth and had to swallow hastily to answer his blind friend.

There was nothing left in the pot but bones and a weak soup. This time when the blind friend asked “is it ready?” the lame friend answered “Yes. It is ready.” And he gave his blind friend a plate full of bones and soup.

“What is this you gave to me—bones? You wicked fellow! You have taken advantage of my blindness and eaten all the meat. Did I not share equally with you in the hunting? Should I not then have an equal share to eat?” the blind friend complained with anger.

“Without my legs you would not have shot anything at all.” Answered the lame friend. “I saw the monkey, I shot it. I cooked it. This is the hardest and biggest portion of the work; hence I should get the biggest portion of the food. You used only your physical strength. I used my eyes, my skills as a hunter and talent as a cook. This is certainly more! If I had not first seen the monkeys there would be nothing in the pot at all.” Explained the lame friend.

They disputed and grew very annoyed with each other. Blind went from the house and stood on the road; stopping all passerbies to listen to his account and begging them to judge and punish the lame friend. From the hut, the lame friend shouted his own arguments and begged the people to judge him right. The people were not able to judge.

Now, I want to ask you the same question my grandmother asked me the time she told me this story: among the two friends who do you think is right?

Missing Truth about Law of Attraction and Manifesting

We all have the ability to MANIFEST whatever we desire. The TRUTH is, we CAN create ANY reality for ourselves—either deliberately (consciously) or by allowing (unconsciously). One thing I have grown to learn and understand is this: EVERYONE is practicing Law of Attraction—consciously or unconsciously. Law of Attraction is not reserved for some “special people.” Even before I heard of Law of Attraction I have been manifesting things—my diving deep into Law of Attraction is just a plus! Before now, I used to think that the Law of Attraction “experts” had it all to themselves and that it was all peachy-keen for them! Upon closer inspection, I found out that they too had their own challenges.

The only difference that counts in manifesting is your “tool.” The sharpness of your tool determines the speediness of your manifestations. By tools, I mean your “beliefs, thoughts, attitude, feelings and choices. Those whom we call Law of Attraction “experts” have “sharper tools.” There are those who are not called Law of Attraction experts; but are manifesting maven on their own right; they know how to work the magic of “behind the scene” to get what they want. And I fall into this second category. In truth, NO ONE is excluded from the hiccups of this 3D! Here is what Katy Perry said:

When I am in between records, sometimes I doubt myself. I’ll be like ‘Did I just get lucky, or did I mass-manipulate the world into thinking that seven songs were worth a number-one position?’ And then I go back into the studio and I start writing, and the true essential oil of who I am comes bubbling back up and reminds me that it’s always been inside of me, that nobody can take this away no matter what comment anyone makes.”

—Katy Perry on her confidence as a songwriter

Now, when it comes to manifesting our dreams, we face barriers. Sometimes, it is not all about not having the financial capacity. It could be a barrier from the energetic aspect: beliefs, thoughts and subliminal whatever… We are all from the Stars; and made in the image of God/Source/Almighty of which are Highest Vibrations all-round. Why can’t we always be reflecting and radiating the Higher Vibrations? Why do the gremlins and gargoyles trip us up with unworthiness philosophy, negative thoughts and such when we are on our way to manifest our dreams? Why do we have to contend with the gremlins and gargoyles in order to be in a place of Higher Vibrations which makes it easier for our dreams to manifest? I wonder it. For example, a lion gives birth to a lion and the young lion reflects 100% the characteristics of its source of life without deviating; why then is it hard for us humans who are higher in intelligence than animals not reflect, manifest and radiate vibrations of God/Source/Universe. Sometimes, we battle with self-sabotage and limiting beliefs just because we are aiming to manifest a dream or thinking big to sprout the life we love.

The TRUTH is Source Energy is all-encompassing. It’s the “all-that-is” and so naturally, all must include everything… yes including the gremlins and gargoyles! We are part of Source or the Universe. We are Infinite Spirit Beings, and part of our infinite experience is playing this Earth Game as human beings. A distinguishing characteristic of this Earth Game (as opposed to many of the infinite games or experiences we can and do have as infinite beings) is FREE WILL. As physically incarnated human beings, we have free will to create our reality here.

Naturally, with all this Free Will in the Earth Game, we experience a wide variety of results. Some behaviors we consider to be bad or even horrendous, understandably so. But from the perspective of Source Energy, it’s all part of our growth. When you encounter someone behaving in a way that does not feel loving, how do you respond? It takes a lot of spiritual backbone to respond with love to someone who has strayed far from love. And yet, this is our challenge in this very challenging Earth Game.

Yes, we are all here co-creating together in the same reality sandbox, and yet… each being’s reality is personal to them. It’s a paradox. Embracing paradox is a fantastic skill that allows you feel more peaceful, not pushing for resolution.  Acceptance and Love are higher vibrational states that ripple outward and give other people permission (if they’re wanting it) to choose Love over Fear to manifest whatever their desire is! All we can do is be the ideal versions of ourselves, and by doing so, we can inspire other people who are ready to be inspired. 

About the gremlins and gargoyles within—the negative thoughts, limiting beliefs and such… it’s our entanglement with others, and that’s part of what makes the Earth Game so challenging. All these thought-forms exist, but are not necessarily our own! They are not actually personal to us. They are part of the group-think consciousness. We can embrace each thought as “truth” for us, or let it pass like clouds in the sky. It takes intention and practice to cultivate sufficient awareness of the mind’s contents. The challenging nature of this Earth Game is what makes it so popular! We come here with a sporting attitude, as spirits. Finding your way back to what’s true; to let your true self BE and shine through. 

Our Higher Selves know all about all of this stuff and they’re totally fine with it. Though we suffer greatly while inside the Earth Game, when we leave, it’s just like stepping off a crazy rollercoaster. So the sooner we adopt that laid-back Higher Self attitude, the happier we can be in the Earth Game, right here and right now. If we can view ALL experience through the eyes of Source/Universe, rather than through the filters of human “judgmentality”, then we see only beauty and spiritual expansion, and we experience acceptance and appreciation of all of it. Not that it’s easy to do so 100% of the time. It’s to be expected that we waver and pop in and out of these different perspectives, because that’s part of the game too!

A lot of time, we hear Law of Attraction “experts” tell us “Ask. Believe. Receive,” but I want to let you know that it does not always happen that way! It is really difficult to describe what has to happen in the Etheric Realm first before our dreams can manifest here on earth physically. And I remind you that the Intangible PRECEDES the Tangible! “Everything, every moment is a manifestation of something…”

The art of manifestation of our dreams and desires into reality is Alchemy. It cannot be measured. For example, if someone set their intention and uses a vision board with the necessary vibrational alignment; in the end he manifests his desires. It is the same as someone who sets his intentions and submits the request to the Undines or someone who sets her intention and puts the request to the Gnomes. What matters most is that in the end, they all manifested their desires! Different approach; same result—hence the old saying: “there are many ways to kill a rat. As Ikkyu (the Japanese philosopher) so eloquently puts it: “Many paths lead up the mountain; but at the top, we look at the same bright moon.” The Universe is unlimited! And it can deliver our “goods” in different ways. Whenever you set your intention you MUST always use this affirmation to close it up: “I accept this_____ or something even better.” For instance, you set the intention to buy a Lexus Jeep. Don’t just focus on that Lexus Jeep; close it up with the above phrase. Now, what if the Universe wants to give you a Ferrari? I am sure you certainly will not reject a Ferrari! Even if you don’t have the means. Remember the Universe works in diverse ways. A relative or an uncle in a faraway land could just be nudged by the Universe to shower you some love and he could wake up one morning and say “Ah! My dear cousin let me send him Ferrari! Anything is possible!

If you have set your intention to manifest anything, please DETACH from the outcome. Be grateful for what you have first. Gratitude is attitude. Don’t tell the Universe how it should come! The Universe knows better than you. Desperation, neediness and attachment are REPELLANT energy. You must also remember Divine Timing. As Sarah Prout said, “Manifestation unfolds in PERFECT Divine Timing; everything is in God’s clock.”

When you have set your intentions and your “goods” has not yet arrived, understand these points:

  1. Maybe you are not well aligned vibrationally. That is where the “tools” comes in.
  2. The Universe wants to give you something even better and it is cooking and conspiring it from the Etheric Realm where the magic starts. Remember, if it does not happen in the Higher Realms first, there is NO WAY it can happen here physically
  3. Maybe not yet time. Due to the fact that there are some sorts of resistance preventing you—maybe karma, negative (family) pattern, etc which you must clear so that you can manifest your dreams.

As you go about manifesting your dreams, remember to take inspired action and surrounding yourself with likeminded people who will support you in manifesting your dreams. “A person is a person through another person.” Brenda Fassie. No one has achieved success without the mentoring, support and wisdom of others because it takes a village to raise a child.

The Secret did not cover all the fact about manifesting. I have read it. It only presented Law of Attraction as the be-all-end-all of creating our reality and manifesting our desires. But I am putting it to you that Reality Creation/Manifesting is a two-way thing: you decide what you want to manifest and your Higher Self/God/Universe/Angels decides how and when it should come. Here is what Abraham said (a non-physical entity channeled by Ester Hicks) “You cannot make anything happen. Universal forces have been kept in place for all of that. Your job is to determine what you want.” Now, don’t get it wrong. Abraham is not saying we cannot create our own reality. Rather he is saying that we must co-create with the Universe to have the reality we want. And how will you be able to manifest without the help of the Universe? For you to be able to manifest your desires or sprout the life you love; you must BEFRIEND your Higher Self/Angels/Spirit Guides/Universe/God or whatever name you want to call it. They dwell in the domain of the “how.” The how is where the power is and they KNOW the road more than you do!

MAGA Mantra (“Make America Great Again”)

(Photo: Google image)

Ah! America, the “great” land—I love America. When I was in high school I heard the word “USA” and then I checked they said it is United States of America and I asked myself why did they say United States? I learnt that it was 50 States coming together to “live” as one Country in the Continent of North America. I won two books as prize when I was in high school.  One was a book and the other one was a magazine published by Guidepost. It was through the book and magazine that I began to study about America; as it shared many life stories of American people and how they overcame their personal problems. There I read the names of states in USA. It was really inspiring and wonderful!

Now for 50 States to come together to live as one Country actually sounded great! Is it not something remarkable? It used to be! Yes, you read that right; because for a country like USA where you are killed, punished and maltreated because of your skin colour does NOT represent a great country or a country that is ACTUALLY “united.” Suffice to say that United States is just in words; not in practice; reason being that USA is now the HUB of RACISM! I was sobered and left in sobriety when I read what AOC (Alexandria-Ocasio Cortez) said about America:

“Removing Trump will not remove the infrastructure of an entire party that embraced him; the dark money that funded him; the online radicalization that drummed his army; nor the racism he amplified and reanimated” -Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez

That statement is enough to leave you teary-eyed! RACISM IS A MIND DISEASE. Like the Barbadian-American singer Rihanna rightly said in her song Disturbia. Rihanna says “…a disease of the mind it can control you…”

Yes, racism is actually a MIND DISEASE; it possesses you, controls you. It creeps up inside you subliminally and starts consuming you and like a thief in the night as Rihanna also said in Disturbia

“It’s a thief in the night

To come and grab you.”

It is true, that spell of Racism first of all grabs you. Racism is evil; I am saying this NOT because I am a Black person. It is JUST the FACT (if I was a White person I would say the same thing; I am COCKSURE that there are some very few White people who knows what I am saying is TRUE). I love this song by Rihanna; I played it while typing this post. Well-done Rihanna!

When I first read the make America great again mantra I was like “Great again in what sense”? One American person asked “when was it great”? The bitter truth is that the mantra of “Make America Great Again” is born out of negative ego. I was surprised when I saw one of my American friend who I thought was on a journey to enlightenment and quite not in the way of the consensus use the MAGA Mantra in one of her social media pictures. I was like even this one is still following the crowd; I actually felt disappointed!

Honestly, every country is GREAT on their own right! For example, countries like Israel, China, Japan, Bhutan, Hong Kong, Singapore, Ghana, Namibia, Botswana, Ethiopia, Kenya and Egypt are GREAT on their own right. I love the words of Abby Wynne:

“We are all neighbours because we live on Planet Earth.  We are all human. Instead of focusing on making any country great again, let’s remember the greatness in ourselves, and in others.” Abby Wynne

Whenever I see Donald Trump or any American wearing the “Make America Great Again” (MAGA Mantra) I feel disappointed; but I see them with the eyes of Compassion because they (Americans who wear the “Make America Great Again”) are consumed with the negative ego and it is correct to say that they are under Disturbia and “un-awakened” because “a mind stretched by new knowledge can never go back to its prior form” as said in The Mastery of Life of the Rosicrucians.

The last time I checked, no one race is better or greater than the other. As no skin colour is neither! We are equal; honestly I do not see myself as “less-than” because I am Black; I see myself as a human being with Divine rights, loved unconditionally by God/Goddess, Angels and the Universe.  This is how I see my fellow human beings no matter what skin colour you want to label yourself.

I am a Nigerian and ultimately UNAPOLOGETICALLY BLACK. Someone will want to say that I have not talked about the problems in Nigeria; I am talking about USA. I will also talk about the issues of Nigeria as well but this article does not focus on Nigeria.

The question now is “Make America Great Again,” for who? Is it really for “all” Americans? I DOUBT if the Black Americans are included in this “Make America Great Again” (MAGA Mantra)! Because the narratives in America speak volumes; don’t even get me started with the death of George Floyd and the likes of it (SAD!!!). In the eyes of God, Angels and the Universe we are all equal. Let me ask you, does natural disaster know skin colour? Does sickness or death know skin colour? NO! They affect everyone; animals too do not know skin colour; so why is it humans that are made in God’s image are “knowing” skin colour? The Bible did not say God made White people in God’s image. It said “Man” meaning all humans.

When I watched the victorious video of Joe Biden and Kamala Harris; I marveled! I also congratulated the duo and followed them on their social media handles. Here is the thing—now, when you meet the supporters of Joe Biden they will tell you that Joe Biden is an “Angel” and they will pour out all sorts of errors, criticisms about Donald Trump. If you meet with the fans of Donald Trump; they will tell you that Donald Trump is a Hero with all his “GREAT”-NESS and then they will pour out all the flaws of Joe Biden. The only thing we can do is to watch and see how the American narratives go; as actions will also speak louder than words.

If America wants to be “great” or “great again” America MUST FIRST HEAL from the MIND DISEASE of RACISM! The great Black American singer Michael Jackson has told us to heal the world and it starts with healing ourselves first whether mind disease of racism or any other thing…the ONLY way to make America “great” or “great again” is seeing each other with the eyes of love, understanding and compassion. Not letting the negative ego deceive you with the MAGA Mantra (“Make America Great Again”).

“You Are Not My Church Member”

(Church: Google Image)

I was minding my business one Sunday afternoon when a neigbour told me “Kaycee I am amazed at what happened in the church today.” Curious, I asked “what happened”? (Side note: Kaycee is my nickname. In Nigeria, people whose names are Kingsley are called Kaycee/KC) And then she began to narrate the events:

“Today, as service was going on in the church a woman came to the church. She sat down, after the service she went to meet the Pastor of the church; a woman. After explaining her ordeal to the Pastor, the Pastor asked her which she worships. The woman told her. And the Pastor responded to her “Go and meet your Pastor to solve your problem. You are not my church member. I have worked for many people, once they get solution to their problems; they never come back to my church again.” When my neighbour finished telling me this, I told her: “that Pastor is an end-time Pastor.”

My neighbour started telling me what happened in that particular church. She said, as the “woman of God” was preaching, she was being followed—guarded back and forth as though she may not strike her foot against any stone. Can you guess what she wore? Trouser! Cocooned with negative ego and cockiness she was. “Hmmmm, so you are able to endure those nasty scenes”? If I were you; I would leave immediately. I told my neighbour. “Right there in the church sachet of pure water we buy for N10 were being sold for N50 while a stick of candle we buy for N60 was sold for N100. I was dumbfounded.  “The desperate members were all buying and even borrowing money to buy”! My neighbour said. Nowadays, people no longer go to church to serve God. They go to church to look for “miracles.” To be honest, that is not a true worship!

The last time I checked my Bible, most of the people Jesus healed in the Bible did not become his disciples. Examples: blind Bartimaeus, Jairus daughter, the Syrophoenician woman, the woman with the issue of blood, the ten lepers, the possessed man that was chained in the cave and many others. Jesus’ disciples did not do these things nowadays “men of God” are doing. Are they really men of God? I read a very famous Nigerian pastor say “I am at your service.” https://www.pmnewsnigeria.com/2019/12/01/i-am-at-your-service-t-b-joshua-tells-david-lyon/. We all know that most politicians do not follow the right procedure in entering office. How can a “man of God” be at the service of someone who does not have good reputation? A governor whose reputation is not guaranteed—with no example of a good leadership.

The prophets of God in the Bible never asked for a dime from people they healed. For example, Prophet Elisha healed Naaman for free. Jesus’ disciples never demanded for seed before they healed those that came to them or the ones they met. Personally, Jesus is a man I love and respect. His teachings and wisdoms have also contributed to my spiritual awakening and personal development. Yes, his handsomeness alone can dissolve mountains!

Many people who are calling themselves “Men of God” or “Pastors” are not actually doing what Jesus did. If you listen to these modern Pastors they say things like “sowing of seeds,” and such. I begin to wonder, all the people Jesus healed in the Bible he never asked for a dime from them. Why do these nowadays Pastors put a price tag just because they want to pray for their church members?

I left church many years ago; I ran away from Church. I CHOSE Spirituality over Religion. And Jesus said to worship God in spirit and in truth not according to religion or religious denominations). Honestly, I do not know how a quirky, maverick, magical, woo-woo loving, positively rebellious wild child like Kingsley can be tied down with some Religious Doctrines. IMPOSSIBLE!

The most painful part of it is that “Christians” (or let me say churchgoers) have given their power away to a person (Pastor) who they worship. If you go to church today, you will notice that church members worship their Pastors….it is sad that people no longer remember that they are Divine. You will see someone showering gifts to “men of God” with the intention and belief that he or she will be blessed by giving to a “man of God.”

Here is what Morihei Ueshiba said about Religion

“Religion is just show business begotten by the megalomania of its ruling class and created to fleece money from a crowd of stupid (m)asses.”

“Well, why stupid?”

“Because these people become very limited in their knowledge. It is constantly being drummed into their heads that they should listen only to the speeches of their religious leaders, they should read only their literature and stick only to their herd, because all other religions are wrong.”

Sensei I A conversation of Sensei and his students (Sensei I, The Primordial of Shambala)

The TRUTH is, we are all children of God. We are Human +Divine: one with God, Goddess, Angels and Universe. Just because someone wears a suit and carries himself/herself with a so-called piety of “holier than thou” does not mean they are better than you. God can use anybody to carry out His will. God used a prostitute to rescue the Israelite men when the wall of Jericho was to be destroyed. Her name is Rahab (Joshua 2:7)

What is Happiness?

Most people spend time seeking happiness in one way or the other. However, it is an extraordinary fact that we often look for it in the wrong places. One person may think that happiness can be found in making lots of money. Yet we all know that; although we would not turn down the chance of making a lot of money; it is not necessary the case that money will make us happy. The old proverb says “money cannot buy you love.” And yes, it cannot buy you happiness either.

Others seek happiness through their career: single-mindedly they pursue every opportunity of furthering their career until they find that they are in oblivion and fantasy…those who are obsessed with work cut themselves off from the world that most of their fellow humans occupy so that they lose the capacity to communicate in a normal manner. This always creates a reality of being socially maladjusted. Thus making them to create a reality of being sick and depressed through exhaustion and overworking. Furthermore, their relationship with their dearest and nearest ones suffer; sometimes terminally.

Psychologists and health experts indicate that a good balance between enjoyable leisure and satisfying work is essential prerequisite for happiness. As the famous proverb said “all work and no play makes Jack a dull boy.”

However, while balance is necessary, it is not sufficient. Neither work nor play can satisfy without fulfilling relationships. It follows, therefore that those who are most likely to succeed in finding happiness are those who also manage to build up a wide range of satisfying relationships of all kinds: family, friends and even those they meet causally. Paradoxically, such relationships are most likely to bring happiness if one’s motivation is to give happiness rather than to acquire it.

You can be living in a modest apartment and yet very happy. On the other hand you can be living in a mansion but you are not happy. One day I was walking down the street and an acquaintance called me and I had to walk down to go and greet him. But I noticed something; there was a man who was living in a teeny-tiny room with his wife and four children. The man and his family were eating eba with soup and they were eating together happily.

Eba is carbohydrate food made from cassava; it is a staple food in Nigeria. It is usually like flour. It can be soaked as garri; garri is the flour of it that has been dried and powdery. Eba is made by boiling hot water and pouring the garri into the hot water to become solidified. After which you use your spatula to turn it for concentration. Once it has been concentrated you can now swallow it with any soup of your choice (egusi, okro soup, vegetable soup, draw soup, banga soup etc) 

When I greeted them I could see happiness and fulfillment in them; because from the aura they exuded it shows that they are living peacefully and cooperatively. They were content with what they have. Not everyone has this kind of mindset. When you compare yourself to others you set yourself up for self-destruction and suffering because everyone is on their own unique journey.

The term happiness is used in the context of mental or emotional states, including positive or pleasant emotions ranging from contentment to intense joy.[1] It is also used in the context of life satisfactionsubjective well-beingeudaimonia, flourishing and well-being. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Happiness

What Is Happiness?

Happiness is an emotional state characterized by feelings of joy, satisfaction, contentment, and fulfillment. While happiness has many different definitions, it is often described as involving positive emotions and life satisfaction. 

When most people talk about happiness, they might be talking about how they feel in the present moment, or they might be referring to a more general sense of how they feel about life overall.

Because happiness tends to be such a broadly defined term, psychologists and other social scientists typically use the term ‘subjective well-being’ when they talk about this emotional state. Just as it sounds, subjective well-being tends to focus on an individual’s overall personal feelings about their life in the present. Two key components of happiness (or subjective well-being) are:

  • The balance of emotions: Everyone experiences both positive and negative emotions, feelings, and moods. Happiness is generally linked to experiencing more positive feelings than negative.
  • Life satisfaction: This relates to how satisfied you feel with different areas of your life including your relationships, work, achievements, and other things that you consider important.

How to Know If You’re Happy

While perceptions of happiness may be different from one person to the next, there are some key signs that psychologists look for when measuring and assessing happiness.

Some key signs of happiness include:

  • Feeling like you are living the life you wanted
  • Feeling that the conditions of your life are good
  • Feeing that you have accomplished (or will accomplish) what you want in life
  • Feeling satisfied with your life
  • Feeling positive more than negative

One important thing to remember is that happiness isn’t a state of constant euphoria. Instead, happiness is an overall sense of experiencing more positive emotions than negative ones.

Happy people still feel the whole range of human emotions—anger, frustration, boredom, loneliness, and even sadness—from time to time. But even when faced with discomfort, they have an underlying sense of optimism that things will get better, that they can deal with what is happening, and that they will be able to feel happy again

Types of Happiness

There are many different ways of thinking about happiness. For example, the ancient Greek philosopher Aristotle made a distinction between two different kinds of happiness: hedonia and eudaimonia.

  • Hedonia: Hedonic happiness is derived from pleasure. It is most often associated with doing what feels good, self-care, fulfilling desires, experiencing enjoyment, and feeling a sense of satisfaction.
  • Eudaimonia: This type of happinessis derived from seeking virtue and meaning. Important components of eudaimonic well-being including feeling that your life has meaning, value, and purpose. It is associated more with fulfilling responsibilities, investing in long-term goals, concern for the welfare of other people, and living up to personal ideals.

Hedonia and eudemonia are more commonly known today in psychology as pleasure and meaning, respectively. More recently, psychologists have suggested the addition of the third component that relates to engagement. These are feelings of commitment and participation in different areas of life.

Research suggests that happy people tend to rank pretty high on eudaimonic life satisfaction and better than average on their hedonic life satisfaction.1 

All of these can play an important role in the overall experience of happiness, although the relative value of each can be highly subjective. Some activities may be both pleasurable and meaningful, while others might skew more one way or the other.

For example, volunteering for a cause you believe in might be more meaningful than pleasurable. Watching your favorite tv show, on the other hand, might rank lower in meaning and higher on pleasure.2

Some types of happiness that may fall under these three main categories include:

  • Joy: A often relatively brief feeling that is felt in the present moment
  • Excitement: A happy feeling that involves looking forward to something with positive anticipation
  • Gratitude: A positive emotion that involves being thankful and appreciative
  • Pride: A feeling of satisfaction in something that you have accomplished
  • Optimism: This is a way of looking at life with a positive, upbeat outlook
  • Contentment: This type of happiness involves a sense of satisfaction

THE GOOD ELECTRICIAN

Have you ever seen two people who are “opposite” even if they are from the same parents? As you read along you will find out what I mean by “opposite.” This Earth Game we are playing called Life is really wonder-full; makes me remember the song “What a Wonderful World.”

I am the last child of my parents. I have an elder brother; as I did not begin primary school on time due to some difficulties I had before I started walking well. But that was in my infancy stage (it is an old story I must tell you). Due to this my elder brother Bright was ahead of me in school; he was in the next class and I was in the preceding class.

During my childhood days I had trouble going to school; I kind of disliked school. It was a war between me and my mom. I would cry and cry telling her that I do not want to go to school! Sometimes she will lead me to the school; but I knew the route so I have to come back on my personal freewill. Or we would end up in kerfuffle; which will ultimately lead to me ending up halfway and she will have to take me back home right there from the road! Even if she tried to cajole me with the promise of my favorite food and goodies for me; I have already said no with tears in my eyes and I meant it. Call me a wild child and you are right (a good wild, quirky, maverick supple child…a child who knew his onions….right? Yes! Lols).

This incident happened between the period of my primary one and two. Then it seemed something sparked up in me and I picked interest in schooling. Once I entered primary three I fell in love with academics—reading ahead of the class textbook and even teaching myself at home. My performance was quite remarkable. It seemed like I got “awakened;” I even wrote my final school leaving certificate examination from my preceding class! And I made it excellently.

Then secondary school, as usual my brother Bright was ahead of me in class. It seemed like an advantage of me because I would be using his textbooks and notebooks to prepare myself ahead. Nearing completion of my secondary school, the choice of career came. That will enable us to know what we are to study in the university or college. There seemed to be a “belief” about science and art.  There was this belief that going into the field of the sciences would give you an edge over your contemporaries and present you with more job opportunities plus a well paid job. I actually faced pressure at that time, but I had to be stubborn enough to follow my instinct. I intuitively knew that I was going for the Arts. My brother Bright had a knack for the sciences; this is where the “opposite” comes in.

When we finally graduated from secondary school, my brother got an admission into the Delta State University where he studied Physics. Actually, during my secondary school days, I wanted to do Gymnastics as a career because I had a very flexible body; I could twist, crawl, climb, turn and whatever with all the quirkiness and suppleness—something I used to defeat my brother when we used to play. He would try to bend me as a way of punishment but I somehow curled out like a snake; he would try to bend me again as punishment but with suppleness I would curl out of his hands. What stopped me from doing Gymnastics was that there was no Gymnastic school in Nigeria. My mom actually saw this potential in me; we made enquiries but there was no Gymnastic school in Nigeria.

Thanks to my physical and health education teacher. She was really a competent teacher; one with an enviable mastery of her field! She sparked my zeal…I could remember asking her in the classroom if the state government would sponsor us to Greece to go and do Gymnastics since Gymnastics originated from Greece. My passion was burning with Gymnastics! But she told me that she was not sure if our government would do that. My brother and I were her favorite students (same with other teachers).

Eventually, I had to take up study in the field of the arts and humanities. I studied Political Science and Social Studies in College of Education, Agbor Delta State in Nigeria. The thing is this, while my brother Bright studied Physics I am the one who eats, sleeps and breathes Metaphysics—I LOVE Metaphysics!! Bright actually graduated excellently; he is very dexterous and competent when it comes to handling and fixing things: ranging from repairing our generator, motorbike, installing fan, house-wiring, plumbing, repairing radio, television, phone, etc. Bright was the one who singlehandedly installed our tap and GEEPEE water tank without the assistance of the workmen. The only thing the workmen did was to bring the machine for the drilling. That is all. Every other technical stuff was handled by Bright competently and smoothly…a gift I do not have!

I always tell my students “I prefer Metaphysics to physics.” I am the one who loves to spend time in the river—connecting with the Waters healing energies (if you say I am a Merman, you are right), taking a walk in the forest, conversing with the Universe and exploring all-things Metaphysics. When I told my mom the experience when I traveled across the high sea; she looked at me intuitively and said “who knows if the Undines was just nudging you…you know you are the quirkiest of all my children…” and we burst into laughter.

In the University, Bright do repairs for fellow students, neighbours, friends in their hostels. Whenever any of their appliances was faulty or they needed a wiring or connection and stuffs like that he would go and do it for them and they pay him for the service. He even goes to outside work as an electrician. I am blessed and fortunate to have such a talented brother so that I did not have to pay any electrician to fix things for me. Yes, I am proud of him!

Let me say that God uses our fellow humans to save us….we can be each other’s Angels. As usual Bright went to an outside work in a hostel; that was a fateful day…a student met him in the school and told him that her fan was faulty. The fan would not switch on to give her the air she bought the fan for!! (That can be very frustrating—especially when you are not tech savvy). So they bargained for the price and he paid Bright in advance. Then Bright agreed to come and fix the fan for her the next day.

When Bright arrived the girl’s hostel, she showed Bright the fan and explained whatever it was that was wrong with the fan. Then Bright climbed a chair to fix the fan; meanwhile the girl’s sister visited and was trying to prepare lunch. Standing on the chair in the room, Bright was working on the fan and the girl’s sister who visited brought went to the kitchen and switched on the gas. After switching on the gas, she realized that the matches was not in the kitchen; she had to go and get matches from the room.

Fortunately Bright had already seen her light the gas cooker. As she was going to the kitchen to strike the matches to light the gas; Bright swiftly jumped down from the chair and gripped her with full force—pulling her away from the kitchen and dragging her to the room! The girl was confused and angry; not knowing the intention behind Bright’s action. She began to yell and rain insults on Bright; this drew the attention of other students in the hostel and her sister. When they came out she narrated how Bright jumped down from the chair and gripped her; dragging her away from the kitchen to the room. They began to think otherwise—suspecting that Bright wanted to rape her. All of them started talking and running their mouths like tap.

“Hear me out,” Bright told the girl’s sister whom he has come to repair her fan for. Everyone was like what has he to say…so Bright told them how it all began: “I was up there on the chair fixing the fan when I saw your sister go to the kitchen and switch on the gas cooker. After switching on the gas cooker, she realized that the matches was not in the kitchen; she was looking for the matches. She spent ten minutes walking up and about looking for the matches. If I had not seen her and she went to the kitchen and light the gas. This hostel would be ablaze and I am sure it would not be a funny experience.” Hearing this, the girl whom she came to repair fan for shouted, “What!!!! Thank God for your vigilance!” as she said this she collapsed on the bed. All she said was “Halleluiah!!” BRIGHT THANK YOU OO!!! She began to thank Bright profusely. “You are really a good electrician. If you had not seen her all of us would have been burnt to death and severely injured.” Said the girl with gratitude. Other students in the hostel who heard her shout rushed in to see what was going and why she was shouting. When they heard the version of Bright story; they began to thank him profusely. The girl who wanted to cook the lunch went on her knees and started begging Bright and thanking him. Everyone in the hostel that afternoon were all thanking Bright for his vigilance. Even those who have insulted all apologized to him and thanked him copiously for his vigilance. Some students were saying thank God he came that afternoon to repair the fan; otherwise that hostel would have been ablaze; lives and properties would have been lost. “Bright, God used you to save me and my sister and everyone in this hostel.” The girl who hired Bright to repair her fan said. “Assuming Bright did not come today to repair this fan, this hostel would have been razed down by fire. And we would not be here talking…” thank God and thank Bright. Other students on hearing the story of the incident; blamed the girl who wanted to cook the lunch for her carelessness. “Why would you turn on a gas cooker when you do not have a lighter or matches in your hands? You are a very careless girl! Village girl! Common sense should have told you that you were supposed to have matches or lighter handy before turning on the gas cooker.” One of the students told her aggressively. Bright has already finished his work so he left them.
