Use yours meds too even if you #pray – #MentalHealth #MercyfulGrace #In14Ways

This is succinctly apt. Why?

Often, Messianic ritualists forget; He Himself, God, made herbs to edify our bodies.

Then only can we accend and glorify him soulfully; in our consciousness, in spiritual terms. Mind, body and soul.

So many mind games get played by people who dont care for your soul anyway.

So why adhere to religious charlatans who only want to fleece you out of your worldly goods and possessions ..’

When God Elavates You

“Music and writing has helped me deal with adversity ruthlessly. Narcolepsy and Cataplexy has been a difficult experience for me to live with, but my creativity gives me purpose, drive, healing, ambition, direction; and suddenly, life has a new meaning to me. One being an Inspiration and the other to Give BACK” – Anthony Everest

5yrs ago, I said I would and I did write an award winning blog. Amen ..’ – #MercyfulGrace

From, working with Obama to Macy Gray. I found my purpose and vission.

If you value, yourself; don’t spend it around those who don’t. Like #Jealous #Spirits and etc ..’

MercyfulGrace

So grateful, ‘Oh Gracious God’, for the numerous blessings taken for granted I didn’t deserve, but just because you simply love me unconditionally.

Even in the face of adversity, unprovoked vicious uncanning jealousy, indescribable ignorance and spiritual wickedness.

I did it all l through You, God. Amen !!!

So busy. I need someone to #sleep for me and #divide my brain into mini me’s for efficiency ..’

– #In14Ways

Like I said, if you value, yourself; don’t spend it around those who don’t. Like #Jealous #Spirits and etc ..’ Move is freedom.

– Aremuorin

#NoteToThySelf

This always reminds me of what extreme demonic lengths haters will go to attempt to detail your vission and purpose to your destiny.

So, I stay covered by Godly Graces. Amen !!! ..’

Gods time of elevation is Gods time of preservation ..’ His ways are always just, upright and forethought ..’

Abe Cruz In 14 Ways with Forever Faith

Abe Cruz7 - MercyfulGrace Blog

Abe Cruz: ‘Forever Faith’ – In 14 Ways – http://MercyfulGrace.Blog

Abraham J. Cruz what a pleasure to meet with you in #In14Ways at last. Thank you for giving us this opportunity to get closer to know more about you. We thought this interview would never happen. You are such a busy successful inspiring entrepreneur. If you are not dripped in chocolate (Jay Leno) for your adoring fans, you are dripped in words of inspiration all over your (Forever Faith) brands ..’ So lets get started already in In14Ways ..’

1. How are you today?

I’m Blessed and Great every day, because there is no other option when you see light, and breath air. Amen!!

2. What was life like on millionaire matchmaker when we first saw you

Life at that point was unreal, and unbelievable, because about a year before that I was in prison, and I was told that. I wasn’t going to be able to accomplish anything, or be productive in life. I was in prison being told when to eat and when to sleep.

3. Has Patti changed your life for good with the one in the aftermath

Patti did a great job on working with me, but unfortunately it didn’t work out with the girl I met on the show. She was beautiful, and I hope she is doing well.

Abe Cruz8 - MercyfulGrace Blog.jpg

4. How has prison affected your focus

It was the biggest blessing of my life, because nothing I have today (physically, spiritually, financially, or mentally) would have come about without hitting rock bottom and going to prison. I was forced to lay on my back, so all I could see was up.

5. Advise for young entrepreneurs

To truly follow their heart and soul, and ask God for direction. Truly believe in God first, and believe in yourself second, and with that combination you can’t lose.

6. Your advise for anyone living a life of crime

Yikes..!! Hurry up and figure out your exit strategy, because I don’t think anybody decides they want to go into a life of crime. Speaking for myself I grew up poor, and wanted a better life for me and my family. And ultimately I know I made the wrong decision, but it was the quickest financial solution to all my financial problems. I would never advise to do it. Remember this… Fast Cash Fast Crash..!!

7. How has faith captured your imagination.

I fully believe in myself. I feel that I will be one of the most powerful men in the world some day, for many different reasons.

8. How have you managed to resolve diversity in America being Latino

I understand at time we are dealing with some racial tension, but I personally do not allow racism, or race, to influence or impact my daily life. I don’t have an ounce of hate in my body, except for idiots. And idiots come in all shapes, sizes, and races. Life overall is about loving, accepting, and encouraging each other.

(MercyfulGrace: Laugh – Laugh – Laugh – Love it !!! Genius. Thank you ..’)

9. Do you believe in after life

Wooh… That’s a good question. The majority of people out there would want me to give a definitive answer, because that’s what is expected in society. But me speaking truthfully, never even gave it a thought. My focus is becoming a better person every day, and doing everything I can to help this world in every way I can. Yes. I believe.

10. Where is home for you

I travel so much. Not sure where home really is…

11. Your ideal get away.

Heading to the beach. Quiet beach. Massage and relaxation all day long… and having sushi. I’m more on the simple side.

12. Who inspires you most

Faith is number one. There’s been a couple of people that triggered some inspiration as well while I was in prison. P.Diddy (Sean John), Jay Cutler (4 time Mr. Olympia), and Jim Rohn (Philosopher).

13. Your greatest legacy will be

That I cared about people. That I lifted up people when they were down.

14. Say a prayer for humanity.

Dear Father God, I come to you for the good and the bad, and today’s specific prayer is to bring humanity together. We are going through some tough, confusing times. Us humans don’t have the answers. So I turn to you, and ask You for direction. I ask you Father God to guide us, because we will only see improvement if we put all our faith in You Father God. I pray this to you Father God in the name of your son Jesus Christ. Amen

End of Interview

Thank you so much for the interview. You are truly a star and a consummate professional. I’ve picked up a few notes here personally. Goes to show. The best things in life are free and what will be will be. Patience is a real glorious virtue. Furthermore, like to add and end on this note: may God bless you real good. Amen !!!

Carleen Anderson – In 14 Ways ..’

image

Cage Street Memorial – The Interview  (Part 1)

Carleen Anderson is the God Daughter of James Brown

“She’s not just good. She’s phenomenal. Carleen Anderson is one of a kind” – James Brown

Let’s get to know Carleen Anderson, better: Thanks for agreeing to this interview. We usually do this in 14 ways, but for blessed burdens, like you; we reserve exceptions ..’

“For live performances, you have to see Carleen Anderson, at least 3 times, in your life. She’s someone, I’d hang around all day, just to hear, her sound check ..” – Amy Winehouse

Sweet, but only where heaven is falling. I don’t call those bitter, anymore. I’m a love child, to love, from love. God favours me. That’s Carleen ..’ – Anthony Everest

You are a great work of art and truly inspirational. It’s an honour and a mare privilege, to touch the peripherals of a great mind that’s seen a lot of life, in various lights, to a great degree. God bless you ..’

Carleen Andersen - MercyfulGrace

I remember interviewing Carleen, when I produced and presented for Voice of Africa Radio, half a decade ago. Then, inviting me to see her play, ‘live’ at Ronnies, in London ..’

Couldn’t get over her songs and her endearing powerful wise way of allaying thoughts on paper, creatively, with a succinct colourful pedigree of words, unrestrainedly.

Set to a backdrop of propelled vocals, centred on beautiful ivories; running through her fingers, gracefully yet fearlessly, to a spellbound, mixed audience.

1. Who Is Carleen Anderson

The mother to her Sun Bobby Anderson being the most significant element of her earthly existence alongside the blessings of nurture by her paternal Grandparents since her infancy, Carleen Anderson is more widely known as an independent vocalist/composer whose solo albums and celebrity collaborations are globally acknowledged as relevant Soul Music.

She is further known because of her work with the group, The Young Disciples. Her family association with the Godfather of Soul, James Brown, via her stepfather Bobby Byrd and her birth mother, Vicki Anderson, is often mentioned in connection to her music career.

2. What is fortune drive

Fortune Drive is a metaphor referring to my life in contrast to being raised on Cage Street by my Grandparents.

3. What is failure

What would be considered failure to me is to be without any association of love in my heart during my time on earth.

image

4. Why success

Success to my mind is the ability to have room in my heart for love even when the heartaches of life seem overwhelming, as having time and space for love brings uplift to any situation.

5. Where did leopards in the temple come from? Epic song.

The title ‘Leopards in the Temple’ was drawn from a poem written by Franz Kafka whom I read during my University creative writing studies. Decades after first reading Kafka, circumstances of life resulted in me translating the theme of betrayal in his poem into a song that I wrote about the same topic.

6. Favourite song on the new album

Every song on my new album, “CAGE STREET MEMORIAL~ The Pilgrimage”, is dear to me and favoured equally.

image

7. What’s your fav duet experience

The blessings of musical collaborations throughout my career all have graced me with favour but the most dearest is the impromptu LIVE performance with my Godfather, James Brown at the Royal Albert Hall in London, 2003, which was captured on my LIVE DIVD, Grace and Favours.

 

Cage Street Memorial – The Pilgrimage:

 

8. Most terrifying moment

To speak of terror except in incidents where justice demands it is to give fear power without any benefits of purpose to self-preservation.

9. Who inspires you most

The inspiration that visits me the most is from loved ones long since transitioned who encourage my spiritual journey.

10. What’s love to you

What I consider love to be is sincerity in moral support and active carefulness.

11. Your A list crush

The last time I had a celebrity crush was when I was a teenager. It was for the 1970s actor, Billy Dee Williams. Such idol fantasies have since been long gone.

12. Fav destination

In an ideal world, I’d love to spend time in the Seychelles. From what I’ve read about it, the place seems peaceful.

14. Your worst critic

Of all the critics that have professionally put me down, their worst pales in comparison to that which I experienced personally at a very early age from someone who for this interview shall remain nameless.

The launch of Carleen Anderson’s new album is scheduled for its showcase by the EFG London Jazz Festival at the newly refurbished Jazz Cafe on 18th and 19th November alongside its FREESTYLE RECORDS distribution release in November 2016.
