Freedom by Maurice Stevens

Written By Maurice Stevens

Freedom –

Does it exist; Can it be felt… Can it be seen? Or is it just a word, conjured, spoken, then given to the masses from the intellectuals of this world; who strive off the đefining of things?

I’ve wondered… And so I’ve searched – high and low, to and fro – through experience; my own, and those of others, as I’ve seen and felt them. Now concluding that Freedom does exist. But! As much as it does, it doesn’t. As all other tangible and passional things of this world stand, so does freedom – In need of itself and its opposite, to be sustained. At least this is how I see it at this point of in my life; And if you disagree as I believe all writers seek to do, allow me the chance to elucidate. For a moment, let me attempt to place my heart in your chest and my eyes in your head, running off the hope that ‘maybe’ you’ll come to concede my view, once you’ve felt with y heart and seen through the eyes that I see through!

Freedom doesn’t exist: Here’s my rationale – All living things are
slave to something, (i .e. The Intellectuals, their search – The Artists, their craft – The Religious, religion – The Beast, Desire – The Ant, its work – The flower, its will – and so forth) all have need, which gives Birth to search, which finds meaning, which then develops into passion, and passion negates Freedom. Passion will not allow one a mere minute of acquaintance with Freedom. See, Passion is as the devoted wife who’s fully cognizant of the inviting courtesan (freedom), doing all she can to keep one focused on Reason (passion) and away from Desire. Leaving one free from everything ‘except’, that which they’re servant to (Passionate about) : And freedom has never lain within the walls of exception. Simply because the two cannot co-exist; therefore while one is in existence, the other’s non-existent. “Freedom Doesn’t Exist“.

Now, before I move on to Freedom existence allow me a brief moment within this moment to quote, then criticize two authors from my history whom I revere to the highest point of awe. Only seeing myself fit to do so because the both of them have left room for me. (i.e. the words “Maybe” and “Perhaps”).

The first of the two will be Ralp Ellison, in his book Invisible Man,
where he’s said: “Maybe freedom lies in Hating.”

Now, true hate is reactionary: No one in this world hates (anyone or anything) without reason (without provocation). And though one may have reason to hate, (its been taught, or developed over time) one seldom does so on one’s accord, therefore stripping freedom from the act. (Hating) Where she has never truly lain in the first place; for to react is to act in response; A move in the secondary which hints at freedom, but has never known her (freedom) to tell of her place of residence: “Freedom Doesn’t lie in Hating.”

On to the latter of the two, Addison Gayle. Jr, in his essay “The Son of my Father”; where he quotes Mr.Ellison (above quote) with praise. Then goes on to say, “But if not, perhaps freedom lies in realizing that one Hates.”

Now, though Mr. Gayle, Jr., takes a step closer to “a home” he hasn’t found “the home.” For realization just marks the becoming off cognizance, and nothing more; It still lacks the action (the opening of the door) though it brings one to the door step. One will never truly know if Freedom lies in hating unless they open the doors of hating and glance in. Where they’ll find Freedom Not! For freedom has never lain within the walls of hating – But one shall find an old friend within the walls of hating – Another master that jealous house wife – Passion!!!

Freedom does exist: Only within the walls of choice. Yes, choice is the name of the home in which freedom has lain since time began; For it is only within choice that freedom can be true to herself – True to her name. So never will she leave its confines; though many come within choice and wish to have freedom leave with them, never will she: For freedom is choice, and choice without exception is freedom. (After one leaves the confines of choice, one must journey alone, forever under the hand of their chosen master till they again desire freedom to the point they negate their chosen master (passion) and enter choice once more, finding freedom.)

Know though, if one sits within choice long enough, Freedom will introduce them to choice within her found home. (choice within choice)

See, I’ve found that Freedom – as she stands – is only one’s being able to choose freely that which they are servant to. Crazy right? But such is life. And such shall mark the end of my telling of freedom truth. Yet I’ll add a Perhaps and Maybe leaving room for you.

The Biggest Lie Leaders Ever Told

That we are all victims. In reality, every human being who walks earth is supreme, in their own way. No matter where you are from, what you represent or what you have been through, there is greatness inside of you.

Eleanor Roosevelt once said, “No one can make you feel inferior that without your consent.” Supreme Network wishes to put to rest the fallacy that we, the target class of America, are inferior, weak, victims. Our history of perseverance and resilience since the beginning of time proves that we are an indomitable force combined; energy, air, great minds and hearts connected across all lands,waters and barriers. Being a winner begins with thinking like one, capitalizing on our strengths while improving our weaknesses at the same time.

I know that it is soothing to the human conscience and ego to take credit for all the good and blame the rest on God, “life” or the government. But, since we have free will, that means our thoughts create conditions, our bodies create life. The beauties and ills of the world are the result of our own thoughts and actions, because “All that man achieves and all that main fails to achieve is the direct result of his own thoughts” (James Allen). It is we who have to correct ourselves to see that the universe is just and correct.

This world offers us invaluable “natural resources”; beautiful trees, fascinating animals, amazing people to know and love, and the mental capacity to create, or to destroy. How are using our powers? Do our collective actions show that we appreciate what we have? It is only when we alter ourselves towards the people and things that make life possible that the universe will alter itself towards us. Aimlessness is a vice. We, as a unified must cause a direct link between thought and purpose or there will be no intelligent accomplishment.

To win, we can start by ceasing our fight against the “effects” of oppression and focus on the causes, the chief one being that no victory will be had where generations of people are being taught that they are inferior to those who oppress them. The talk about “rights” of any kind is just talk, as as a right has no material value unless or until it can be enforced. Although “the government” often gets the credit for it, we are divided because we allow our selves to be divided. We are ‘”victims” because we accept that role. Thinking supremely entails a willingness to push ourselves to our highest potential and refusing to accept roles or titles other people give us. Amos Wilson described the self-defeating mentality that holds us back this way:

The often anemic self-concept of subordinate persons and groups, their low self-esteem, their ignorance or their actual strengths, are more the causes of their subordination than is the actual
strength of their oppressor.

Sometimes our worst enemies are our own memories. We think, act and react like victims because of how we see ourselves in relation to the oppressor. Not only has the idea that we are inferior been beaten into us literally, it is systematically reinforced through various media outlets. These messages then take root in our minds and find life in our thoughts and eventually our speeches and arguments. The mouths and pens which many of these speeches and arguments flow from are usually the ones we trust the most.

The so-called leaders of today will insist that supporters of the struggle for freedom continue on the path outlined by those of the past. While convenient and effortless, like any other “quick fix” which bears no fruit, it defies logic when examined carefully. No condition can be treated until it has first been diagnosed properly. Through years of study, as well as personal observation and experience, I have come to learn that we are sometimes more in our own way than anyone else ever could be.

Supreme Network’s Money Mentality: 15 Principles Toward Becoming Rich

Everything begins and ends with you, not “luck” or circumstance.

The world is a manifestation of thought. Therefore, people create conditions. If you want success and riches, set your goals, work your plan and do not stop until you get what you want because it will not be given to you.

Nothing from nothing equals what? NOTHING.

The 15 Principles Toward Becoming Rich

The following 15 principles are life lessons that Supreme Network members practice every day. Use them and your life will change forever:

  1. Help Yourself First. The best way to help the poor is to not be one of them. It is not possible to give something to anyone that you do not have. So, don’t let your heart outweigh your intelligence.
  2. Results. The most important symbol in math is the (=) sign because it gives us the bottom line of everything we have been through. If we cannot show the results of our labor maybe our numbers are
    incorrect.
  3. Master One Thing. You are a master if you excel in a specific area of life, no matter how small. Whatever you are good at, dedicate your time to becoming better at it and put a price tag on it; whether it is what you cook, how you dance, or the advice you give.
  4. Success, Nothing Less. What you put out, you get back. Success doesn’t “just happen” for anyone. We must plan for it. Thought + Action = Results. Think it, write it down, breathe it, live it..GO GET IT!
  5. Money. Money is just a tool to “fix’ and build things. The more you have of it, the sooner your dreams will become reality. But, first, we must dare to dream, dream big, and what we need to achieve it will come to us. Money is a mentality.
  6. People Potential. “Everyone is supreme, in their own way”. Trees become great and beautiful when watered and properly nurtured. Know what you need to grow.
  7. Thinking. Nothing you have, had, or ever will have is more valuable than your mind. The only limitations on your future are the ones you accept in your mind. Every obstacle is an opportunity in disguise to grow stronger. You have to think like a winner to be a winner.
  8. Social Power. To “be” someone in this world means you are useful to others. The more you develop your reputation as the “go to” person, for whatever reason, the more powerful you are. “If you want to be a millionaire, help a million people”.
  9. Time Control. Rich and poor people have the exact same amount of time in a day to pursue their dreams. Rich people work smart and dedicate their time toward their goals. Poor people work hard and spend a lot of their time with entertainment but still expect the benefits of being rich.
  10. Youth. The hope of every nation rests in its youth. Without children, humanity has no future. When we build empires to live up to the promise of freedom for our children throughout the world, we never tire and we never fail.
  11. Network. The power has always been in organized numbers and talents. Build and connect with people who are, at minimum, trying to make progress in their lives and never expect results from those who have no ambition, motivation or vision.
  12. Power. All power begins within. it is then applied with service, not control, of people. By creating systems that empower and protect others, we demonstrate the true essence of love and loyalty to the people and things we are committed to.
  13. Self-Mastery. Everyone knows “things” but not everyone knows themselves. Find your strengths and weaknesses, whether physical, mental, educational, or emotional, and commit to improving them every day.
  14. Speak Your Truth. Never hide who you are, what you like or where you come from because your story is powerful. Your story can inspire others to find their power within. When you see yourself as living for others rather than living for yourself, this principle will come naturally.
  15. Service. Know that businesses, organizations, inventions, and relationships are most successful when created with others in mind, because the essence of all power is service.

Conclusion

Success is a series of steps toward specific goals that you eventually reach, to whatever extent.

Supreme Network is the movement of money, action, and results; not philosophy, pyrrhic victories or hope fiends. We see and face the world for what it is. We acknowledge and are aware of the transgressions of the system but we don’t let it define or break us. We refuse to talk, act or live our lives like victims.

This movement approaches every day, every opportunity, and every war with the mindset of winners because our life of struggle and survival prepared us for victory over any obstacle because “Without vision the people perish”.
