Taxation through transactions on Cashapp, PayPal, and Zelle.

I will keep this short and upload a link to a video that will explain more of this thoroughly. Starting this year, the IRS will be requiring 1099k forms for profits exceeding 600 dollars or more on any cash sending app or website. Even claiming these transactions as gifts for family and friends can potentially cause the IRS to audit your account. Hopefully we the American people will put a stop to this. I believe we the people will as soon as more awareness about this is raised. Together with our voices we are stronger. Don’t stay silent about this, educate your peers. Ignorance isn’t excuse to our enslavement. Speak up the American people 🇺🇸.

In the middle of the music, leave me alone

1:16 am: it’s Saturday and I’m still up listening to a new playlist that I found on Spotify. The old playlists can get annoying at times and the mind requires something new. I’m human and constantly have the urge to discover new music. Music is one of the link between the soul and body. Random fact about the word “music”, it originates from the Greek word “mousiké”.

The word refers to the art of the muses. If we read about Greek mythology, we will discover that there were 9 muses who were known as goddesses that brought forth literature, science, and art that spawned basic poetry and lyrics, evolving into what we know as music now. The 9 muses were: “Calliope (epic poetry), Clio (history), Erato (love poetry, lyric art), Euterpe (music, especially flute), Melpomene (tragedy), Polymnia (hymns), Terpsichore (dance), Thalia (comedy), Urania (astronomy).”

Memory clear as film

History is not a burden on the memory but an illumination of the soul. ~ John Dalberg-Acton

God gave us memory so that we might have roses in December. ~James M. Barrie

It’s great to reminisce about good memories of my past. It was enjoyable when it was today. So learning to enjoy today has two benefits: it gives me happiness right now, and it becomes a good memory later. ~ George Foreman

Do you remember events in your life that your peers have no recollection of? Well this is definitely a gift I possess, I can remember events as early as three-years old. The saddest part about this is that there are times in my life that not even my siblings or parents remember. I’ll try to remind them of certain events and they simply cannot remember, or go far as too say that I have a wild imagination. Frankly, I think it’s because my parents were constantly busy with school and work as I was growing up. They did not have the spare time of reminiscing recent memories from not too long ago, only to allow the stacks of paper to burn in the camp fire, shortly becoming ash and then fertilizer for the nearby bushes and trees. Through stress and being busy with countless tasks, most humans have a harder time to retain the basic components of their day.

There are three forms of memory; long, short and working. Long and short term are rather somewhat evident, but as for working memory it is a little bit different. According to National Geographic, working memory, “. . . lets us keep something in our minds for a limited time by repeating it. Whenever you say a phone number to yourself over and over to remember it, you’re using your working memory.” Memory is overall a fascinating topic that can be talked about for hours. Memory itself can be categorized into two different categories. Two different categories that memory can be categorized are; declarative and non-declarative. Declarative is a category in which we can consciously remember through basic facts, common information and the experiences/encounters we go through in life that form the basis in our memory. Non-declarative memory is when we unconsciously learn and remember to do certain physical matters such as riding our bikes, driving a car, tying a knot, casting a fishing rod, or even how to cook a steak.

Although it is important in understanding the structures of the memories we have, it is also vital in fathoming the destabilizing parts for our memories known as Amnesia. Amnesia is when we lose memories. Ways of encountering amnesia can be caused by an injury to the temple, going through a stroke, a tumor, and certain levels of alcoholism. “There are two main types of amnesia. The first, retrograde amnesia, occurs where you forget things you knew before the brain trauma. Anterograde amnesia is when brain trauma curtails or stops someone’s ability to form new memories.” This is unique to learn and brings attention that all of our memories aren’t just allocated to one spot in our mind, but in fact placed in different regions per the nature of the thoughts.

What if we purposely want to forget something, or even alter the memory to not having to remember the memory as we first remembered it? Can this be perfected? Yes it can be done. Of course it won’t take a second to do this but a series of attempt before successfully perfecting the art. Typically anything we recall is reconsolidated. To change this, we have to graft the original with a new though, or even attempt to trick our mind to accept it as fiction to completely disband the thought. We have this power to do so whether we want to alter or destroy it. Think it over for a little bit before continuing to do so. Nothing is wrong with doing this, but think it always over. It is better to be certain than not and only having regret.

After reading all the information I have posted about memory that I picked up from National Geographic, I hope you realize that you should be grateful that you can recall your memories. Having great memory is a sign of great health. With great health comes a long and prosperous life. I would like to hear about the depths of your memory if you would love to share. It is truly incredible how every individual has a different method on remembering certain aspects in life.

I’ve been surprised

It’s January 18th and I’ve been totally surprised with the weather here in South Carolina. It was in the 50s-70s then all of a sudden last Sunday it got colder and we even had a few inches of snow fall. It’s rather ironic to see palm trees trapped in the snow. Thankfully, it is now Tuesday and the snow is beginning to melt. The temperature is slowly going back up again. All I know is to never get too comfortable and always be prepared just in case. The state was pretty much shut down for a couple of days with only essential services running. Finally everything is running again. Fortunately we did some extra shopping prior to the unexpected weather shift.

When in doubt, think ahead because you never know what you will run into. Worse case scenario, you have some extra food and supplies that you can use for the future. I hope everyone is doing well this month and slowly are finding ways on improving your life and affirming your positive affirmations. If you’re upset about something, or it’s not going your way, don’t let it destroy you. Things don’t always go our way and in lieu may take an additional amount of time and patience. Don’t lose hope, keep moving on forward.

Follow your own path

I find it incredibly outrageous that people find ways to control others. This is something I see far too often happen to others. It’s one thing to receive advice and use it under your discretion, but to just not be who you want to be and follow someone’s dream, will not satisfy you. Be you, keep searching and looking for answers.

“There are no footsteps to follow your own path… but that’s where the fun and adventure lie.” —Doe Zantamata

“The future belongs to those who can excite and inspire.” —Nancy Gibbs

I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past, I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone, there will be nothing. Only I will remain. -Frank Herbert

No one saves us but ourselves. No one can and no one may. We ourselves must walk the path. ~Gautama Buddha

An artist among us 👨‍🎨

Isn’t it awesome when you have a brother in law who practically knows everyone in downtown? Never mind, you probably don’t. My brother-in-law introduced me and my family to an artist by the name of Jared Emerson. Jared has been an artist for most of his life. If you enjoy his artwork and the art he displays then feel free to follow him on Instagram at: thejaredcollection

I really like this painting in particular, it’s a metaphor for life and how no matter what if somehow we messed up, we can still make ourselves useful and productive no matter how broken we are.

In case any of you are wondering, Jared is based in Greenville, South Carolina. Stay blessed!

First the spiritual then the physical

“Such a weird title, Maxwell. Why would you choose that as your title?” I cough a couple of times. “Well, it’s quite simple actually. This doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure it out.”

He scratches his head, “I’m listening. I want your explanation as I normally do when you draft the most eccentric titles.” I sit down on a comfortable chair with a cushion, “Most physical problems or conflicts originate from the root aka the mind, spirit, and soul. This root began from from a seed. Whether you consciously recognize what seeds you utilize, your thoughts (the seeds) are being planted or not, your subconscious is making these critical gardening decisions for you. It is up to you to condition your thoughts to be your anchor that will build you a golden foundation. This foundation will lead you to ultimate success and resurrection within you. The decision is yours of course, I suggest you communicate with yourself and determine if you are in a ditch. If you determine that you are in a ditch, start planting seeds with well intentions. Love yourself and take care of you. Write down this vision you seek, if that be the case. Once you are spiritually healthy, it will manifest into the physical realm. You’ll be contagious, showing people that accomplishing goals, and aiming higher and higher, as well as being healthy are vital to a prosperous and abundant life.”

He sighed, “I will have to consider this. Me and my mind will have a deep conversation about this.” I give him a hug, “I’m so happy for you and wish the best.”

As I’ve been going through many battles within me and do my best to win the battles and improve everyday, allowing accomplishments to manifest, I have recognized that I need to eat much healthier than I do and to exercise. I’m going to see results these next few months, I affirm. I affirm the same for you, if this is something you desire. Spirituality must reflect through our temple. For now, I’m working on workouts on YouTube and going on runs outside. I will be adding more types of exercises myself and will talk about it here in the future. I’m cutting down on sugar and carbs, and eating more vegetables and fruits, as well as not going out as much. Not only do I want to be healthy in the inside, I also anticipate to be healthy on the outside. By the way, I’m hella sore. Hopefully I won’t be too sore tomorrow, but it doesn’t matter, greatness is coming and it’s coming for you.

I love you all!

Propaganda in the mainstream

Turn that stupid tv off and quit listening to the news. It is full of lies that are meant to keep you in fear and their full control. Literally 95 percent of the news is full of negative news. Rarely will you read something positive on there. All you see is coverage about death, disaster and the pandemic that is blown to over proportion. I am sometimes ashamed to call myself a human being that so many fall for these lies. All I want to say is that, don’t fall for the lies, instead stay positive and be aware that you only have the power to claim liberty from fear. Fear is just false evidence appearing real. Go outside and talk to your neighbor. Go on a walk by the river. Look at the beautiful sky. Eat something healthy. You’ll notice that what the media portrays if by far the opposite of reality. Reality is more serene than what the tv’s try to scare us about.

2022

This is my first post of the year. This one may be a bit unusual but bare with me. I was just journaling and decided to write something that was on my mind. Might be useful to you perhaps. Either way, here it is. Enjoy!

2021 was a kamikaze. The year was filled with liberty, yet explosive. I was a boy with great urge for freedom, snatching onto anything as a raven envying a lustrous golden ring from afar. This boy touched and tasted everything he desired, not contemplating the potential consequences. The boy had no vision for whatever he did. Without proper sight, he was lost in infatuation. Infatuation may have more letters “vision” or even the simple word “plan”. More letters only form more weight. More weight coerces the letters to sink into oblivion, only to become forgotten. There’s no return. If the boy had thought everything over, he would add 2, 0, 2, 1 and produce 5. Then he would examine the significance of number five and I learned that it represents a year of curiosity and the necessity to experiment to be fulfilled. This is only temporary, five will move on from formless to having formation. Behold; 2022 is here in other words, you have a consecutive number; six. You are now full of structure and support. A vision has only begun. Follow it through and do not fall victim to the negativity of the others around you. The boy has now become a man.
