It takes the whole village to raise a child

images  A Chinese bamboo tree is very famous because of its height and the market value that it holds, but all this greatness does not come with a silver spoon but it takes hard work, dedication, sacrifice, and patience before the farmer gets to enjoys the fruits of his or her labour.

It takes 5years of watering and fertilisation. every single day and if at any point if this does not happen the Chinese bamboo tree will die on the ground, after 5yrs in only 6 weeks it grows 90fits tall, isn’t   that amazing? but the question is does it take 5years or 6 weeks to grow well the answer is that it take 5years to nature it, to build that foundation, to build the credibility.

What if the parents today applied that philosophy and use it to bring up their children, we won’t be having the likes of Donald Trump but rather the likes of Paul Kagame, Nelson Mandela, Mother Teresa and many more whose lives changed millions of people.

The parents nowadays have lost track in bringing up their children that is why we have a generation of young people who cannot give a seat to olds folks  or a pregnant  woman in  a bus or a train, a generation that cannot take risk but they expect everything to be done for thema generation of cowards, I was brought up in a way that whenever I did anything wrong whoever who was older had the right to punish me on behalf of my mother and he or she will make sure that my mother knows and that is why I became who I am today, it was the mandate of the whole town or village to bring up a child in the right way. In other words parents during those days planted a bamboo tree in their young ones and let the society help in fertilising and watering it until when it broke the ground, and with that, they were able to produce strong courageous and fearless members of the society.

They canned you when you were young, they reasoned with you when you were a teenager and once you were 18yrs old now you could decide for yourself, unlike this lost generation whereby the Kids can say what they want to whoever they want and get away with it, they can publicise their bodies on social media for the sake of likes  and the parents do nothing, can’t we see that we are heading in the wrong direction.

Our children follow what we teach them and what we do, kids will never hate discriminate, love or be racist if they were not either taught by their parents or the society at large, therefore I say that we still have room  to change as parents to make the world a better place because other planets are occupied already.

You only need water to live a healthy life

waterWater the most common substance in the universe,  but the question is where did it come from?, why is it soo eminent into our lives, it cover 70% of the earth surface and soo is our body, this ancient element has been there since the bygone age of the creation of the earth by the Almighty and until now it is still very very essential to us in our daily lives.

”Water is life ”is a slogan that has been there since the time of Adam and Eve it was there long before the earth was created  it covered the whole surface of the earth at that time, you will agree with me that it is a magnificent element that gives life to plants, the sea creatures, and the human beings because every time a mother is about to deliver a baby you hear them shouting ”oooooh ooh the water just broke so technically that fluid in the mother’s womb is what preserves that child that is why it makes 70% of the human body.

When I was young I inherited this behaviour of taking a lot of tea from my  tenacious African queen or my mother, I used to take a minimum of ten cups of tea per day, well I thought at that time that this was not harmful to my body, moreover it was just tea, in 2009 I left my country to Bahrain, where this habit became even more vehement, later on I started being sick, more often, I had fever like every week  and flue was part of me just like a gun is to  soldier, or like lies is to a politician, hospital and pharmacy became my most favourite centers, my friends used call me a dead man walking, I even almost lost my eyesight, a headache made my head feel like it was 10000 pounds heavy, I used to blame God for allowing this to happen to me little did I know it was not Him but me.

One day I came across an article that talked about water being used as medicine in Japan so I said that I was going to try it out, so I did as the article said which was to take 4 glasses of water in the morning after waking up then wait for 45minutes before taking breakfast, for the first few weeks it was very difficult, but after some few weeks it was okay.

After  the third week I started seeing changes in  the body my skin became healthy and shiny once again, my digestion became better, the urine became clean and pure my eyesight improved I could see well and the light  especially the sunlight never affected me anymore, I never get fever anymore like I used too and I get it I never rush to the pharmacy, because all ou need is H20 to bring down your body temperature

Water carries a very great and strong healing power especially the alkaline water because your body functions well in an alkaline state than in an acidic state

Define Your Purpose In Life

via Daily Prompt: Lifestyle  let me first start by saying that our lifestyles  especially in this  period of time where there is tremendous  competition in all aspects of life be it in fashion, eating habits, how much wealth you have accumulated and soo on and soo forth we are soo desperate to fit into the society and by doing soo we end ruining our health, relationship and  many other things which could be avoided simply  by taking time to discover ourselves and what do we really want in life, maybe think about what is our mission here on earth, we are all here for a certain purpose that’s why we have different names, appearance and our habits are also the same, so lets find  our purpose on this planet and follow that passion in us, let us creates new paths for our future generations

Fly With Me

I wish  was dove then I would fly the whole world preaching peace love and harmony  every human being and creature I fly upon,  I would start my journey in the Nyika plantues of the grassland savannah of Kenya  and remind  them of a 1000  men and women who were slaughtered during the 2007 post-election violence, my tent will be pitched there  until they all understand that they are one people and that a kikuyu goes to borrow salt from a luo  because he or she is the only neighbour a kalejin depends on a Nandi when there is hunger and famine, I will not even eat or drink until when they understand that the power belongs to them and not to the politicians until they know that they are the driving force of that country aa well as  the economy, as soon as they understand, thats when  I will spray the whole entire country with perfumes of forgiveness, love, and humanity, shade all my feathers which they will use  whenever the love seems to fade away they will use them as  a sigh to remind them from where they came from, and alaas!!!!!  my mission will be completed in kenya
I will fly over the Murchison falls of Uganda and I will see   president Kaguta Yoweri Museveni’s leadership crumbling down because I will have awaken my sleeping sons and daughters who will have risen up to the glory and will be rulling themselves.since there will not be soo much to do in UgandaI  will extend my journey to the heart of Africa Rwanda and give Kagame a High five and a hug for the great work he has done after the Rwanda genocide in 1994, I would stay for some few days  there and breath in the fresh air of the this wonderfull country  eat the best cuisines prepared by the most talented queens of the East.
I will continue with this magnificent journey to  what is  todays Babylon (USA) I will go there with the intention of destroying this sinful county but I shall be stopped by the innocent souls of young children, women,and men,  and for the sake of them I will do an emergency evacuation then  afterwards I will burn it with flames of fire and make sure it disappears  from  face of the earth, because the problems it has caused our mother earth is unbearable. It has killed thousands in Iraq, Vietnam,  syria, Libya,sudan and many others just to mention a few, the blood of this innocent souls keeps on crying everyday yet no one is there to listen to them, because I know once I destroy her then the whole world will be in peace, No war, no global warming, no illness both physical and mentally, no hunger, or famine, no man-made calamities.
After this is done I will take a long vacation at countryside in the Caribbean and enjoy sweet Bachata salsa mixed with some African jazz  music while sipping glass super cold virgin mojito while waiting for my hot Ugali and sukuma wiki to be delivered from the coastal part of Kenya.
From then I will sleep in peace every single night knowing that I will have brought peace to this beautiful mother earth, and this my friends is a dream that I  will  live and maybe die  for, because we might say that its too late to give it a try but I know only wjen its dark enough can you see the stars

Is school education empowering us or Enslaving us.

  Do you remember that first day when you were taken to school and you cried the whole day ?simply because you wanted to go back home with your parents, or can you recall a day that you said that ”OOOOH I wishI could spend my whole life in school”, well am very  sure none of us has ever altered such words, because no one likes school! but what makes us wake up every single day is becuase of the fear that has been planted in us when we are reminded that if you do not shine in school then your life will be miserable and you will never be successful, or when your parents only considers  the only real careers are when you work in big offices which you do not even own, if not  you are seen as a disgrace to the family and the society at large  
The education systems that has been designed for us is soo bad that it reduces us to nothing less than modern slaves, well look at it this way you are born, after some years you are taken to nursery school then primary all the way to secondary perhaps if you are lucky you proceed to university, you graduate and look for a company that you will work for the rest of your life then later get married and eventually die, when you are worn out, perhaps poor ,bankrupt or maybe even die without spending the money you have collected in years.
The system focuses on producing labours  and humble employees(slaves) who are loyal to their employers (masters) rather than producing innovators, businessmen and women,leaders and others who can bring positive change into the world but oooooooh no they cant do that because this world is controlled by few powerful men and women who if they change the education systems that means empowering more people hence the number of billionares will be in every household which means their  power will be greatly reduced,  therefore they won’t be able to control the world like they do now.
They never tell you in school that talent pays  or you don ‘t have  to be a graduate to start a business and if it is soo Richard Branson will not be owning one of the biggest companies in the world, Michael Jordan would not have reached where he reached in basketball arena, or maybe I would not be writing this article because I will believe that am not good enough to do so,maybe Doctor Sebi would not have been the person he became before he was killed, all am saying  is we should not let school define our future, a human brain is very powerfull and it can do miracles  it doesn’t matter if  you are black, white green, blue or whatever colour you might be, wether you are rich or poor, male or female we all have the same brain structure the difference comes on how you train it and what you feed your brain, the choice is your.

ALUTA CONTINIUA

Last night I was walking through the streets and I noticed that everyone was in a hurry, women were busy buying home product from the cold stores men  were walking fast   dragging their  young ones ,not even thinking if they can make those big steps like theirs, everyone is in a hurry they could not even notice how beautiful the sunset was!, the could not notice the flowers growing beside the pavements not even could they notice the beautiful butterflies flying  around.

Every one of them seemed serious and perhaps  angry, the shop owner could hardly smile at the customer and on the other hand, the customer had not time even to say hi when he or she approaches the shopkeeper, I was standing wondering how cruel this is, in  that these people have no time to interact, because if I can recall where I was raised it was your responsibility as a human being to know…

Last night I was walking through the streets and I noticed that everyone was in a hurry, women were busy buying home product from the cold stores men  were walking fast   dragging their  young ones ,not even thinking if they can make those big steps like theirs, everyone is in a hurry they could not even notice how beautiful the sunset was!, the could not notice the flowers growing beside the pavements not even could they notice the beautiful butterflies flying  around.

Every one of them seemed serious and perhaps  angry, the shop owner could hardly smile at the customer and on the other hand, the customer had not time even to say hi when he or she approaches the shopkeeper, I was standing wondering how cruel this is, in  that these people have no time to interact, because if I can recall where I was raised it was your responsibility as a human being to know how your neighbour is doing, help them when they are  in need, cheers them up when their down, and lift them up when they fall down.

So decided to continue with my journey to the bus station while trying to smile at every innocent face that looked at me but to my amusement no one smiled back and they looked at me as if there is a loose screw in my head  (as if am crazy) on reaching the bus station I was amazed there was a huge crowd of people, oooooh yes I was very happy that I  have come across a group of people who can bring back this human feeling once again, but ooops!!!!! I was shocked to see all of them looking down at this small divise in their hands, some of them were serious, some of them were laughing,  some were lonely, some were confused and I was the only one smiling, while others looked at me with a strange face.

well, I came from a small remote place at the end of the earth where happiness is the foundation of life,  helping each and being there for one another as well as interacting are the building blocks of life.

But here am trapped in this messy and boring world where, you are measured by how many likes you have on facebook, how many followers you have on Instagram where 90%of them are unknown to you, by how many subscribers you have on youtube and am sure you don’t even know even a single one of them, by how much money you have that you can say the dumbest thing or do the stupidest thing in the planet and people will imitate you,

A world whereby we have allowed the evil to look good and the good to look soo bad, we elect killers and thieves in the highest offices and later we complain that life is hard, we cry when our family members dies but we don’t care when innocent kids men and women are boomed sprayed with deadly chemicals, die of hunger caused by those we put in power, simply because they are not ours, we praise what is bad and criticise what is good, and that is why I wonder every single day where are we heading as human beings.

 

we claim to be smarter than before yet more people are dying from diseases and wars, there is more hatred than ever before we have ruined our planet, we still can’t even read the language of the Egyptian mummies, yet we want we can’t even explain the pyramids, we can’t find food for the starving tummies yet we want to fly to the moon, therefore, the Question is are growing wiser or are we just growing tall

 

I want to back to my tiny village but will they allow me to????
