Easy on the Eyes, Rough on the Ears

Have you ever met a woman

Who was easy on the eyes,

But ever so rough on the ears?

When she speaks she awakens fears

Births self-doubt and apprehension

Ready to harshly critique and berate you

Without forethought or a moment’s hesitation.

Such a woman is a plight and paradox indeed

She attracts a man’s eyes, but makes his heart bleed

Once allured, seduced, and ensnared it is hard to be freed

Therefore I warn you my brothers to listen and take heed

Lest you be by your eyes enticed, engulfed, and overcome

Hear a woman speak and behold her actions, before you run

Because being committed to a boisterous woman is not fun

It will nearly make you want to be die, or be deaf and dumb

Playing dumb is not sufficient to endure belligerence, nor shun

A continuously complaining, belittling, and destructive woman 

Therefore men beware before by your eyes and hormones you succumb

To the sophisticated seductress, lying lioness, and beguiling woman

Show restraint and behold her behavior over a long period of time

Thereafter you will know if she possesses nobility and does shine

Radiate with inner glory, the woman within, cultivated and captivated

If not, run hastily without explanation from her like decaying rot

Because when her looks fade, an annoying woman you have got.

Truly from the overflow of the heart come the words of the mouth

As for body parts gravity will pull them all eventually down south.

Character is contained in one’s actions, not mere promises and words

Watch out for loudly expressed wants, wishes, demands, and expectations

For these are the signs of inner motivations and brutally fatal relations

Which many men foolishly embrace and work tirelessly to futiley chase

Seeking to secure things to make their bottomless pit of a woman happy

After which they realize nothing and nobody can make a woman joyous

Because happiness is an inside job, a mystery to be discovered by all of us.

Remove yourself from the rat race early on brother and let her not smother

Be content until you find a quiet and quality woman …perhaps like your mother.

TV Guide and NY Times say Oprah Winfrey’s Empire is Crumbling

TV Guide’s Chloe Tse article dated 05-27-2008 reports tremors in Oprah’s media empire.

According to TV Guide Winfrey’s new-age spiritualism and political persuasion is jeopardizing her marketability in the media, thereby diminishing her status.

 

Perhaps Winfrey’s longtime reign over the media is coming to an abrupt end. For so long revered as nearly a saint because of her uplifting programming, Oprah is now beginning to receive criticism for her views. It has often been said that one should not talk about their religion and politics. Oprah is defying the odds and daring to do both.

 

I salute her for her authenticity and boldness to express her individuality. Yet doing so is simultaneously hurting her marketability. Nevertheless on the flip side of that argument, we do well to remember that controversy does sell. Who knows the queen of TV could remake herself into an activist for worthy causes and a voice against social injustice. Nobody can dispute Oprah has done and is doing a lot of good in the world. And with such influence why shouldn’t she let her voice be heard?

 

The New York Times says Oprah’s choices are gaining skepticism and audiences are tuning out. According to Nielson Media Research, for the third straight year in a row, Oprah is experiencing a decline in audience viewers.

 

Research shows Oprah’s program has dropped 7% of its viewers this year alone. Oprah’s other projects also seem to be suffering. For example her reality show Oprah’s Big Give debuted this winter with a huge audience and beat every program on television except for American Idol, but also experienced the loss of almost a third of its audience.

 

Winfrey’s readership of O her magazine, which you would think to have increased with the nonstop promotion of Tolle’s book, suffered a beating and loss of 10% over the last 3 years according to the Audit Bureau of Circulations.

 

Even Oprah’s favorite and highly promoted books in her book club are suffering harsh criticism. Apparently Oprah either didn’t adequately study the demographics of her viewers, or disregarded her viewers beliefs altogether. Women in the deep south who heavily watch Oprah’s program are typically Christian and many supporters of Senator Hillary Clinton.  Hence Oprah has cut her own throat by alienating Christendom with her new age books and shows, while simultaneously disenchanting white women when she endorsed Barak Obama for President.

 

As a Christian who read “A New Earth” and found it a in meaningful book, I understand both how Oprah feels and religious folks who don’t play around with their faith. Certainly not all Christians can eat the fish and spit out the bones when reading spiritual truths originating from another ideological orbit. Politically Americans aren’t very tolerant or understanding either, as evidenced by the great political divide in our country between Republicans and Democrats.

 

I commend Oprah for being true to what she believes in and bold enough to share what she thinks will empower people to live better lives. Her intentions and motives are certainly pure. If Oprah were solely money motivated, she would not continue to promote her spiritual and political views. Yet being already established financially, Oprah is embarking upon larger more meaningful missions to change the world. O Ambassadors is just one new endeavor Oprah is partnering with Free the Children to liberate and educate kids worldwide.

 

Hopefully Oprah who says she is a Christian will not find problems with parents concerned about their children getting sold new-age ideas. I think Oprah is doing a great work and deserves our support. Yet at the same time we who have beliefs of our own should not be any less vocal than Oprah.

 

Anything worth having in life requires a sacrifice. For Oprah it is a drop in viewer ratings, book sales, and magazine distribution. Nevertheless the rewards of the sacrifice should be sufficient to warrant the losses. Often we must first be willing to lose in order to win.

 

It cannot be disputed that ultimately we attract what we are. We cannot please everyone and succeed. We are at our best when we are true to ourselves and transparent about it. That Oprah is and that is why we love her.

 

Beyond touching hearts and putting tears in our eyes, Oprah also makes people think. Now raising eyebrows and making us scratch our heads, Oprah is finding herself as she further evolves. She recently said on her program that she admits to not having enough time to truly enjoy herself.  Perhaps as Oprah becomes more present and lets go of the ambition of sustaining her empire, critics will be silenced and her true spirit will emerge in purity untainted from the labels many have tried to presumptuously give her.

 

Dividing audiences is not always a bad thing as even the Word of God itself divides, while exposing our hearts (see Hebrews 4:12). Although Oprah’s television audience is predominately middle-aged white women who support Senator Hillary Clinton, most Americans are awaking to the reality that we need some color in the White House to truly get real and heal the homeland.

 

Angry criticism of new-age spiritualism and political disputes though a common message thread on the message boards from her website, Oprah will continue to transcend the accusations and come out on top as she honors the God of truth.  Love rejoices in the truth and we should do no less.

 

Next up for Oprah is OWN: The Oprah Winfrey Network. featuring programming that will reflect Winfrey’s vision of what she considers empowering programming.   

 

You can’t go wrong when you touch, teach, and transform your audience.

 

It’s not about being the queen of the media as much as it is about living a meaningful life of purpose to impact humanity.

Extreme Prophetic – Your Paradigm Shift

The prophetic is always most wonderful
As the people on earth become spiritual
Move beyond the flesh and past the soul
Awaken within to their divine identity
Get clear on things and are made whole
The prophetic is more fun than the Super Bowl
Reclaim from them what fear and demons
Have over time cleverly and subtly stole
The prophetic uplifts you from depression’s hole
Perhaps inquisitively and rightly you say, “How so?”
Well, the prophetic reconnects you to the Creator
Quieting you within to hear your Maker’s voice
The voice of the Lord is power setting you free
Making you rejoice and dance within happily
As the breakthrough by the Holy Spirit comes
Into your glorious God given purpose you run
Becoming acquainted with your divine identity
You simultaneously awaken to your destiny
Both the eternal and earthly equally abundantly
As God gives you eyes to supernaturally see
Ears to intuitively inwardly connect and hear
Causing the priceless voice of God to be near
Near and dear, the Holy Spirit removes fear
Bringing forth supernatural operations and weapons
Empowering you mightily within to arise and win
Every battle you face, as you see the Lord’s face
Run the race, that He’s mapped out before you
Taking you from glory to glory, faith to faith
Strength to strength, and loving grace to grace
Enabling you to transcend every earthly limitation
As you feast on divine knowledge and revelation
Move in the miraculous bringing forth manifestations
To awaken skeptics, silence critics, and live in the fullness
Of Christ the King of glory, the captain of the hosts
Christ our portion, in whom our soul makes its boast.
