The Groundshaker – Grace Jones

I was obsessed with Grace Jones in the 80’s, particularly after watching A View to a Kill and Conan the Destroyer. BUT, living in a Bible belt world I began to actually look down on her freedom – which at the time was labeled everything from a whore, to irresponsible, to a sell-out.

I watched MTV whenever possible, so I was able to get an understanding of the NYC universe. We thought we were Turbo and Ozone, the Jungle Brothers and De La Soul, or had even experienced the nightlife to the likes of knock-off Studio 54’s, where Grace Jones was once a fixture. Non of it was reality for me, but vicarious living speaks for itself – it was the fantasy… New York had its mystique and it was irreplaceable. It felt good to play that house music, “that low pounding sound” and I still consistently fantasized about Grace Jones, sneaking to watch her scenes from the James Bond flick.

And now, at 71 solar returns , the Taurus, the bull, Grace Jones is still on fire – fresh, flirty, and fine. And I’m still celebrating this ground-shaking Jamaican born beauty. And, by the way, noone can forget the legendary Strange’ birthing the perfume bottle in Boomerang – or the pussy call – classic.  #naturistvibe

Mood Musik: I Am Your Mind (Pt.2) – Roy Ayers

The Grand Genius Roy Ayers wrote these fantastic lyrics for the Virgin Ubiquity II album in 1976… Celebrating this Virgo, in season, with reason. Reminiscent and real. Oh, how his words reveal – truth.

Your mind your mind
Your mind your mind
(If you believe in yourself)
Your mind your mind (You’ll know the real you)
Your mind your mind (Its coming from within) (Sincerely)
Your mind your mind (Sincerely)
I am your mind
(You subject yourself to being vulnerable)
(Not knowing why you fall in love)
(And so you become)
(What you are made to become)
(Its not that often)
(That I feel as I do)
(Tell me something to make me feel better)
My sister
I am your mind
Within you is a never-ending magnitude of
Indefinite strength, wisdom, and will
You travel my roads through life
Never knowing your own true reality
Because my thoughts remain like distant quasars
You abuse me
By never letting me say and do as I feel
Our thoughts split from love affairs to joys of friends
We argue like two enemies
Yet we are good friends
Now there are moments when we harmonize with each other
And become one with nature and reality
(Tell me something to make me feel better)
But these times are few
When after you have replenished yourself
The fear of the truth sets in
We split, and you start to run again
Running, running, running
Running through women, men, jobs, people, and life
Looking for the answer
When I had it all along
But I smile
Because I am your mind
I was your mind yesterday
I am your mind today
And I’ll be your mind tomorrow
And as our end draws near
We will become closer
But you and I
You and I
We will never be one
For I’ll part form you
And you will part from me
You finding another mind
And I another soul
We will travel on
And on
By the way
I need more than sex to nourish my equilibrium
But I do need sex
I also need sun, trees, stars, creativity and love
But you saturate my soul with too much of one
And not enough of the other
Therefore I cry
But why do we cry
Because tears cleanse the windows of our minds
I am your mind
(Tell me something to make me feel better)
All your thoughts inside your mind
Wanting to be free
Well now you’ve got the chance to make your mind grow
And be free
Because the music is just trying to say things to free your mind
Then you can understand why
There’s no need to be afraid of me
I want to be your friend
I’m just trying to give you music from deep deep
Deep deep within
(Tell me something to make me feel better)
All of your dreams can become reality
My dial reaches full
But you’ve only been turning me halfway
Turn me up
And alpha and beta waves will spew from your pores
And knowledge, peace, happiness, and prosperity will be placed at your feet
Let’s
Let’s create
Solve
Love
Accomplish
And unify
As-Salaam-Alaikum

She’s Gotta Have It

Mysteries of Life

It is increasingly difficult to understand how creative beings can speak of consciousness or getting to the next level and yet always be so angry. There is no need for that to continue. Meditate on a powerful and peaceful journey and begin to embrace the Hrt… The Hurt and the Heart. Healing is within reach.

Ntr/Neteru – Attributes for Survival

I am the almighty ANKH
…Constructed from wire and wisdom
Here to wreak havoc on the evil intentions
And ascend onto high plains with the CREATOR FORCE – the dark matter.

The talisman that holds the power
From which you reveal the strength and structure.
I and the she, the goddess, in whom you dwell
until that day when all turn inward to greatness. My magnetic level stings in birth, pierces the earth and becomes master of self.

" People think that I'm crazy, just cause I wanna be alone
You can't depend on friends to help you in a squeeze
We all deal with sh.t on our own
And sometimes the beef can grow, get out of hand
Yeah, you know it gets full blown
I never said that you mean the world to me
Maybe it's best that you never know
"

MUSES ed:1

The Goddess

I see you. I need you. Quench my thirst. Spark my fire and inspire my verse. Cause me to let out the lion’s roar …with your name in the growl. The sweet Goddess. I need my Muse. Awaken my spirit and give me strength with your attentive Beauty. Demand that I stand strong in the winds of change and in the dull moments, pull the inventive fire from my gut. And I will demonstrate the potency of your power (womb)manifested through art. The world will soon recognize the impenetrable nature of our existence and part like black sea. Allowing space for you and me. We create naturally.
