Below is an excerpt from the speech, “Where Do We Go From Here?” the great #MLK gave in Atlanta, GA on 8/16/67.
Read it and notice how relevant it is still! Let that sink in. The more things change the more they stay the same huh? One thing that’ll never steer you wrong? Choose love always!
“And I say to you, I have also decided to stick with love, for I know that love is ultimately the only answer to mankind's problems. (Yes) And I'm going to talk about it everywhere I go. I know it isn't popular to talk about it in some circles today. (No) And I'm not talking about emotional bosh when I talk about love; I'm talking about a strong, demanding love. (Yes) For I have seen too much hate. (Yes) I've seen too much hate on the faces of sheriffs in the South. (Yeah) I've seen hate on the faces of too many Klansmen and too many White Citizens Councilors in the South to want to hate, myself, because every time I see it, I know that it does something to their faces and their personalities, and I say to myself that hate is too great a burden to bear. (Yes, That’s right) I have decided to love. [applause] If you are seeking the highest good, I think you can find it through love.” #mlkday #quotes #love #happiness #peace #unity #life #inspiration #motivation #coach #ascendantlifestyle #lifecoach #goodoverevil #greatness #leadership

Self love and self trust are so vital! It’s your foundation and you know you can’t build anything without a foundation right? Right @iamsrk ? Now get to work on building it and if you need me I’m here to help!

Last year I failed. Repeatedly. I fell on my face and got my nose bloodied over and over. However, I refused to accept defeat. My mom always says “Har kabhi nahin maan nah. Kabhi nahin!” My Hindi spelling might be off but it translates in English to Never accept defeat. Never! It’s fitting that on my first day back for #JKD training this year after the holidays I see this post from @brucelee I wanted to share it and the message with each of you. Remember each time you fail you’re nothing but closer to victory!

#rp @storiesbysammyboy “The history of Diwali is replete with legends and these legends are moored to the stories of Hindu religious scriptures, mostly the Puranas. Though the central theme of all legends point out to the classic truth of the victory of the good over the evils, the mode of their presentation and the characters differ. Diwali, being the festival of lights, lighting the lamp of knowledge within us means to understand and reflect upon the significant purpose of each of the five days of festivities and to bring those thoughts in to the day to day lives.” - For more check out www.diwalifestival.org The amazing 📸 is courtesy of @navkaranbrar1 definitely check his work too! #nyc #india #diwali #indianfestival #hindu #sikh #jain #festivaloflights #goldentemple #goodoverevil #lights #innerlight #photography #love #peace #happiness #spiritual #wellness

It is important to put the emotions to the side when facing tough situations/choices. Emotions need processing and to be handled. Don’t use them as the Why! And most importantly, never meditate with photographers around cause they do this shit! 😆 #ascendantlifestyle #nyc #astoria #humor #coach #life #wisdom #motivation #lifebydesign #inspiration #wellness #mindfulness #meditation #photography #quotes #lifecoach #bethechange

8am on a Saturday morning! What was I thinking? Constant elevation is what. If you want what few have, do what few do! Plus Bruce asked me to take a selfie with him, how could I say no to the master himself?! #astoria #queens #nyc #ascendantlifestyle #jeetkunedo #brucelee #martialarts #aspiration #inspiration #motivation #life #coach #coachlife #wellness #wellbeing #fitness #ouch #quotes

HBD to me! The big 4-0 and boy do I feel the love! Kinda difficult to promptly reply to hundreds of you, I thought I'd do it through this post. If I could spend my days connecting with each of you living, loving, and laughing I'd say that'd make for an amazing life simply on its own! 40 years down 80 more to go! There's a lot of work to be done though. The world is being left worse off than found by the ones that have come before us. Let us leave our legacy as those that reversed that trend!! Be a part of my journey and let's change this world! Blessed to have you 🙏🏽 Peace and Love #ascendantlifestyle #astoria #queens #manhattan #nyc #happybirthday #thisis40 #ouch #life #coach #lifecoach #coachlife #bali #lifebydesign #motivation #inspiration #love

My latest piece #RP below and over @storiesbysammyboy do follow my journey! "As I choose to allow space for my rhythm,
a timely message arrives.
I'm reminded I'm behind the wheel
but not the only one that drives.
Who is this silent partner that allows me to suffer while it constantly contrives?
As I look around,
it's nowhere to be found,
so it must not exist I surmise.
Finally I hear the silent whisper,
"I exist within you, the rest are just lies."
When I need it the most,
It's the best kind of host,
much to my surprise.
And like that it's clear our partnership still thrives.
With every breathe I'm reminded,
I focus then realize." #astoria #queens #manhattan #nyc #writer #art #love #writersofinstagram #artistsoninstagram #heart #poetry #stories #story #realtalk #universe #tut
