Beware of Those

beware of those, poetry by Suzy Kassem

BEWARE OF THOSE

Beware of those who are bitter,
For they will never allow you
To enjoy your fruit.

Beware of those who criticize you
When you deserve some praise for an achievement,
For they secretly desire to be worshiped.

Beware of those who are needy or stingy,
For they would rather sting you
Than give you anything.

Beware of those who are always hungry.
They will feed you to the wolves
Just to get paid.

Beware of those who speak negatively
About everything and everybody.
A negative person will never say
A positive thing about you.

Beware of those who are bored
And not passionate about life.
They will bore you with reasons for not living.

Beware of those who are too focused with
Polishing and beautifying their outer shells.
They lack true substance to understand
That genuine beauty is in the heart
that resides inside.

Beware of those who step in the path of your dreams.
They only dream to have the ability
To take half your steps.

Beware of those that steer you away
From your heart’s true happiness.
It would make them happy to see you
Steer yourself next to them,
Sitting with both your hearts bitter.

Those who are critical don’t like being criticized,
And those who are insensitive have a deficiency in their senses.

And finally,
Beware of those that tell you to BEWARE.
They are too aware of everything –
And live alone, scared.

Remember the Lotus Flower

REMEMBER THE LOTUS FLOWER

Great people will always be mocked by those
Who feel smaller than them.
A lion does not flinch at laughter coming from a hyena.
A gorilla does not budge from a banana thrown at it by a monkey.
A nightingale does not stop singing its beautiful song
at the intrusion of an annoying woodpecker.
Whenever you should doubt your self-worth, remember the lotus flower.
Even though it plunges to life from beneath the mud,
It does not allow the dirt That surrounds it
to affect its growth or beauty.
Be that lotus flower always.
Do not allow any negativity or ugliness
In your surroundings,
Or anybody at all,
Destroy your confidence,
Affect your growth,
Or make you question your self-worth.
It is very normal for one ugly weed
to not want to stand alone.
Remember this always.
If you were ugly,
Or just as small as they feel they are,
Then they would not feel so bitter and envious
Each and every time they are forced
To glance up at magnificently
Divine YOU.

Faith is the Emperor of Dreams

FAITH IS THE EMPEROR OF DREAMS

A great emperor is born from one tiny sperm.
A large eagle grows from one small egg.
A giant tree grows from one tiny seedling.
for the newborn and wise,
Everything begins small.
However, it is faith that builds
the staircase to your dreams.
Always have faith in yourself
And the universe –
For One will not get you anywhere
Without the other.
Both must be equally strong to reach your desires,
For they are the wings that will lift you
to your dreams.
Not a single bird makes its first leap From a tree without faith.
And not a single animal in the jungle
Starts each day without faith.
faith is the flame that eliminates fear,
And faith is the true emperor
of dreams.

The Weather of Love

THE WEATHER OF LOVE

Love
Has a way of wilting
Or blossoming
At the strangest,
Most unpredictable hour.
This is how love is,
An uncontrollable beast
In the form of a flower.
The sun does not always shine on it.
Nor does the rain always pour on it
Nor should it always get beaten by a storm.
Love does not always emit the sweetest scents,
And sometimes it can sting with its thorns.
Water it.
Give it plenty of sunlight.
Nurture it,
And the flower of love will
Outlive you.
Neglect it or keep dissecting it,
And its petals will quickly curl up and die.
This is how love is.
Perfection is a delusional vision.
So love the person who loves you
Unconditionally,
And abandon the one
who loves  you
Only under favorable
conditions.

The Kingdom of Light and Day

September 30, 2014 - Leave a Response

This story comes from a collection of writings from 2007. It has also been previously published on my web site and both blogs as A World of Black and White. You may have read it before, but I want all of you to remember this one forever. All my stories have a surface meaning and a deeper meaning. Study them all well.

THE KINGDOM OF NIGHT AND DAY

There was once a king who feared the light so much, because it revealed all his flaws and scars. So he ordered all the people in his kingdom to sleep during the day and work only at night — using only the light of the stars.

For years, the people lived in fear and total darkness. If anyone dared to open their eyes during the day, even by mistake, the king’s privileged guards that patrolled the village at all hours – were ordered to immediately execute them.

Slowly over time, the children in the village were getting sick and falling over like poisoned flowers. The selfish king blamed these events on the candles that were brought in from a nearby village to light up the holy temples. So the temples were abandoned and closed, and the king had also succeeded in preventing anyone from worshiping anybody higher than him.

Eventually, a young courageous doctor dared to speak up and to say to the king, “Without the rays of the sun to light up our souls and heal and feed our bodies, we will all die.” But the king had the doctor immediately executed.

Over the next few years, the villagers spent most of their time at night digging graves for those who opposed the king, instead of planting seeds to eat from their gardens.

Then again, another brave soul, a concerned scientist, stood up and shouted to the king, “If we go against the way of nature, the normal cycle of life, we will all die.” And just like those before him who had dared to speak out against the king, the man was quickly executed.

Another decade went by, and many other women and men dared to voice their concerns to the king about living in utter darkness. And again, one by one, they were all executed.

Then finally the day came when the king suddenly died in his sleep. In celebration of the news, the huge gates of the kingdom flung open, and the people danced and rejoiced under the bright sunlight.

In the evening, the villagers threw the biggest feast surrounded by the light of a million candles. Yet to the surprise of many, the event quickly escalated into a violent riot. Villagers were arguing over the king’s belongings, and swords were waved between friends, neighbors, brothers and sisters. Within just two hours of the celebration, the village was overtaken by theft, rape, and the brutality towards the weak, old and poor. Then suddenly, amidst all the commotion, the candles surrounding them accidentally tipped over and quickly burnt down the entire kingdom.

Nobody understood what could have gone wrong. Was life truly better under their horrible king?

No, it was not. But all the good people who had dared to take a stand for what they believed was right, were now all gone.

The Day Will Come

September 19, 2014 - Comments Off
day will come

 

I have strong faith in humanity that the day will come when good Muslims will stand up collectively against bad Muslims and say, “That is not Islam”, and good Christians will stand up against bad Christians and say, “That is not how Christ would behave”, and good Jews will take a stand against bad Jews and say, “That is not true Judaism”, and good Hindus, Buddhists and Sikhs will stand up against bad Hindus, Buddhists and Sikhs and do the same — and so on. The day will come when the genuinely Truthful and Beautiful will stand up against the Untruthful and Ugly, and the conscience will overpower the ego, and substance will reign over the superficial. This day will come before my generation is buried 6 feet deep, but not before the storm passes, and not before all races and religions of the world recognize that we all share a common enemy, and that the sum of us all is ONE. This day will come. I promise it will come. But it starts now with me, you and everyone. And do remember, dark clouds always eventually scatter after every storm…to make way for the rays of the sun. —  Suzy Kassem

The True Powers of Our Senses

September 14, 2014 - Leave a Response

 

We are taught about our senses at a very young age, but not about all their powers. For example, we know about the power of sight and its effect on stirring the mind and heart. And we know about the power of smell on stirring or repelling our appetite – or in physical attraction. We also know how the power of touch and the power of hearing (music) can both heal, yet we have not been taught about the healing powers of smell vs. taste (or digestion).

In medicine, we are often given pills or fluids to help remedy illness. Yet little has been taught to us about the power of smell to do the exact same thing. It is known that the scent of fresh rosemary increases the memory, but this cure for memory loss is not divulged by doctors to help the elderly. I also know that the most effective use of the blue lotus flower is not from its dilution with wine or tea – but through scent. To really maximize the positive effects of the blue lily (or the pink lotus), it must be sniffed within minutes of plucking. This is why it is frequently shown being sniffed by my ancient ancestors on the walls of temples and on papyrus. Even countries across the Orient share the same imagery. The sacred lotus not only creates a relaxing sensation of euphoria, and increases vibrations of the heart, but also triggers genetic memory – and good memory with an awakened heart ushers wisdom (see the article I posted here). Therefore, the meaning of the Egyptian lotus is wisdom. The same applies to all eastern schools of thought, and explains why wise people are often illustrated holding a lotus flower in their hands. We often see it and know its correlation, but many people do not know exactly why.

In an article published in 2006 by Eleonore von Bothmer in the American Scientific Mind, she notes that, “The human sense of smell is often seen as insignificant. But this sense is keener and more influential on our species than many people realize.” And also, in a BBC article published in 2008, it was noted, “It’s commonly known that we have five senses – sight, hearing, touch, taste and smell. Smell is potentially the most powerful.” Yet the most neglected.

So why is mankind not educated on the powerful effects of smell vs. our other senses? It could be because most cures for many of our ailments are already found freely in nature. However, the system wouldn’t benefit from us if we made trips to the forests and lakes for natural medicines – instead of continuing to make trips to the doctor’s office to fill Big Pharm’s fat pockets. Negative side effects? Who cares as long as they are making money and forcing us to keep coming back to also cure those side effects.

I would also like to add that I do believe that we have more than five senses. Apart from the basic five, we also have the gut and the third eye. The gut being the seat of all feeling and the third eye being the seat of intuition (foresight). But what can we expect from science, which is incomplete and flawed? How can science be called the study of nature without it acknowledging the soul? Or the ether? If science did study both these two crucial elements, which I feel are at the very heart of nature, then it would be forced to also acknowledge organized design in nature – which would then lead one to discover the heart of the universe. The core of all existence, of all vibrations, of all matter. By doing so, would ultimately bring one to acknowledge cause and effect, and ultimately – the conscience. But nevermind this “esoteric” ideology that could bring about world peace and unity of all mankind. If man knew how connected he was to all things and how the effect of his every action has an impact on all things, then we would no longer be able to convince him that some life on earth is meaningless to justify war.

In closing, the point of this article is to encourage all of you to go out and experiment with nature. But do remember, that not all fish in the sea are meant to be eaten, just as not all plants are to be used as remedies. Nonetheless, I do believe that every living thing was created with a purpose. So please, use the process of elimination to get to the root of every breathing thing’s existence. Mankind has yet to discover half of earth’s true wealth. If you are a teacher, take your students out to the woods to collect some flowers and herbs. Dedicate a day to each plant. Have them list every sensation they experience after sniffing each one – by the minute, hour, and the rest of the day.

To All Mankind by Suzy Kassem

Poetry of  Suzy Kassem

 

TO ALL MANKIND

 
Speak kind words
to mankind
and the unkind
will attack you.
 
Speak common sense
using all your senses,
and you will be attacked by
the senseless.
 
Speak truth,
and you will be attacked by
the untruthful.
 
Speak about absolutely nothing,
and absolutely nothing
will speak back,
but then nothing at all
will ever change.

Truth is a Lion

Truth does not sit in a cave and hide like a lie. It wanders around proudly and roars loudly like a lion. — Suzy Kassem

* This quote in particular is about living and breathing truth, not buried truth. For example, someone who is right about something is not going to hide, but the guilty one will. Those armed with truth are confident to speak out against the untrue. Truth burns in them like an unquenchable fire. That person is the lion. The other, a rat.

 Truth is like a lion. It does not hide in a cave and hide. It wanders around proudly and roars loudly like a lion.  - Suzy Kassem

Doubt kills more dreams than failure ever will. – Suzy Kassem

NOTICE OF COPYRIGHT  INFRINGEMENT

KARIM SEDDIKI IS FAKE

Can someone please tell me who Karim Seddik or Seddiki is and why he is stealing my quotes? He has his name attached to my words all over the internet. This entity is untraceable, so it is clear to me that it is a bogus name used by companies to exploit my words for profit. I have learned that quote sites that sell printed merchandise do this to avoid infringement penalties. If Karim Seddiki is real, I will humiliate him and take him to court for impersonation. I will also sue every company for infringement and exploitation.

Nothing insults a writer more than being exploited, renamed, or uncredited. This is not the first time this has happened to me. I have let it slide before in the past, but now I am going to make sure this will never happen AGAIN – once and for all.

 If an honorable company or web site sharing quotes did a Google search before things went viral, those words would have lead to a 2008 entry in my blog. I was born and raised in America and all my writings are protected by U.S and international copyright law. I have a track record with the U.S government for protecting my intellectual property. If this guy actually exists, bring him to me. So far, my team has found no record or source for this guy. We have contacted every Karim Seddiki in Egypt, France, and Pakistan.

Any company using this quote to sell merchandise will be contacted by my lawyer.  All other entities also in violation of infringement are being asked to make the correction or remove the quote in its entirety. I will even go as far as take entire web sites down. This is my informal CEASE AND DESIST request before I drag people before the court and checks are forced to be written in my name. Again, I do NOT write for others to profit from my words. Just because I choose not to, does not grant anyone the license to utilize my intellectual property for financial gain without even asking me. Any image or web site with the wrong attribution will be reported for infringement and immediate removal. Changes will not happen overnight, but they will happen gradually. Pages and images are coming down as I write this.

The Way of Truth

Way of Truth Suzy Kassem poetry

THE WAY OF TRUTH

When you crave the answer to any divine question,
And are prepared to abandon yourself
To Truth and Time to know it,
You must first train yourself to distinguish
All that is untrue to get to Truth,
And to do so,
Learn to interpret every word and line
With the heart and mind of
A poet.

The language of Light
Can only be decoded by the heart,
And it has a very luminous
Mind and eye of its own.
However, if there is no truth in you,
You will not be able to see or recognize Truth,
So to you, nothing true will ever be
Known.

So learn to use your heart to recognize Truth
By dissecting it with the brightest light
As it was intended to be shone.
This is the only way,
The right way of Truth,
And the only way it
Will ever be
Shown.

kingdom of the womb poems for mothers motherhood poetry mother maternity mother earth

KINGDOM OF THE WOMB

From her thighs, she gives you life
And how you treat she who gives you life
Shows how much you value the life given to you by the Creator.
And from seed to dust
There is ONE soul above all others –
That you must always show patience, respect, and trust
And this woman is your mother.
And when your soul departs your body
And your deeds are weighed against the feather
There is only one soul who can save yours
And this woman is your mother.
And when the heart of the universe
Asks her hair and mind,
Whether you were gentle and kind to her
Her heart will be forced to remain silent
And her hair will speak freely as a separate entity,
Very much like the seaweed in the sea –
It will reveal all that it has heard and seen.

This woman whose heart has seen yours,
First before anybody else in the world,
And whose womb had opened the door
For your eyes to experience light and more –
Is your very own MOTHER.
So, no matter whether your mother has been cruel,
Manipulative, abusive, mentally sick, or simply childish
How you treat her is the ultimate test.
If she misguides you, forgive her and show her the right way
With simple wisdom, gentleness, and kindness.
And always remember,
That the queen in the Creator’s kingdom,
Who sits on the throne of all existence,
Is exactly the same as in yours.
And her name is,
THE DIVINE MOTHER.

Featherweight

SUZY-KASSEM-JUNE-2014

FEATHERWEIGHT

One evening,

I sat by the ocean and questioned the moon about my destiny.

I revealed to it that I was beginning to feel smaller compared to others,

Because the more secrets of the universe I would unlock,

The smaller in size I became.

I didn’t understand why I wasn’t feeling larger instead of smaller.

I thought that seeking Truth was what was required of us all –

To show us the way, not to make us feel lost,

Up against the odds,

In a devilish game partitioned by

An invisible wall.

Then the next morning,

A bird appeared at my window, just as the sun began

Spreading its yolk over the horizon.

It remained perched for a long time,

Gazing at me intently, to make sure I knew I wasn’t dreaming.

Then its words gently echoed throughout my brain,

Telling me:

“The world you are in –

Is the true hell.

The journey to Truth itself

Is what quickens the heart to become lighter.

The lighter the heart, the purer it is.

The purer the heart, the closer to light it becomes.

And the heavier the heart,

The more chained to this hell

It will remain.”

And just like that, it flew off towards the sun,

Leaving behind a tiny feather.

So I picked it up,

And fastened it to a toothpick,

To dip into ink

And write my name.

I am the correct author behind these words. They do not belong to a Kim Hanks or Andy Biersack. If these two young plagiarists dare to contest any of this, I will humiliate them in court.

If you ever need to question the true authorship behind any written thoughts, simply go study the rest of that person’s work. Simply taking someone else’s words and placing them on a poster,a coffee mug,  in your book, or on your website…does not legally transfer their ownership to you. Please be honest and honorable.

Beautiful Music Courtesy of South Africa

May 5, 2014 - Leave a Response
Mafikizolo is a beautiful South African musical group that started back in the 1990s. Though legendary in their home country for almost two decades, their hypnotic melodies have not yet reached the United States. When you scan what America considers hot these days, you can easily see why not. True substance has abandoned us. When hype can be bought, those with true talent suffer — unless they splurge to buy into the game. This song is for those with sophisticated ears and good taste in music.

If you cannot see the audio controls, listen/download the audio file here.

Meet My Father

May 5, 2014 - Leave a Response

dad-suzy-kassem

My father was a professor of strategic management at INSEAD in Fontainebleau, France, in the early ‘70s. He co-wrote books with Geert Hofstede and published many articles on strategic marketing and management across cultures. In his early studies, he was a student and teacher assistant to Peter Drucker at New York University and Milton Friedman at the University of Chicago, where he got his MBA and PhD. Now in his late 80s, he designs MBA programs around the world and sets up management consulting firms throughout the Gulf states.

My father made sure I traveled the entire world before I reached the age of 11. He also encouraged me to study all religions and put me in Catholic schools, Islamic schools, Jewish schools, and international boarding schools. He is the reason how I became the way I am – a true citizen of the world. He made me attend summer school every year even if I didn’t have to go. Education was very important to him, and that explains why I speak four languages. He also forced me to take art and theater courses, and even today after I had already finished college over a decade ago, he still forces me to take classes in everything and anything just to stay current in my education, even if I don’t use any of it.

Last summer, my father had me sign him up to study the oud guitar in Boston. I thought it was the strangest request in the world since it was a camp for all ages. Yet he went and had so much fun.

My father taught me that learning is an endless process and that there is no limit to the amount of knowledge a person can contain. You are never too old to learn something new, or too young to learn too much. My father was very hard on me during my youth and I resented him for pushing me too hard. However, now that I look back at everything, I may have not been ready to learn all things he wanted me to when he wanted me to do them, but he forced my brain to expand in so many directions – directions I probably would have never explored without his involvement. So even though I did not understand him in my youth and rebelled a lot, I am very grateful to have him as my father. I love him for forcing my eyes to study things I didn’t care to look at on my own. I love him for opening my ears to classical music and making me memorize composers and conductors I didn’t have a taste or the patience for at the time. Because now, I realize I wouldn’t be the same Suzy Kassem without Sami Kassem in my life. He gave me the vision I use in all my work today, and has sculpted my heart to be a very compassionate one.

Suzy Kassem

* Following the death of my eldest sister, Sally, my father retired from teaching. This experience forced me to witness how the death of just one person automatically destroys many souls with it. This is why I am a hardcore activist for peace and universal love. I don’t want any sister, mother, brother, or father to go through the pain I went through…and still harvest to this day. All life is equally precious.

This poem is a piece of work from 2008, which was later published in my book in 2010. A good man named Matt has recently turned it into a beautiful work of art. For that reason, I would like to share it again.

A Woman Named Good

May 1, 2014 - Leave a Response

Lee Jeffries

There once was a woman named Good.

Every day, she gave milk to the cats on the street, fed the homeless, and took care of the crippled.

One day while walking home, a battered cat jumped out from behind a trashcan and bit Good in the ankle. It wouldn’t let go, so Good had to kick the cat to release its tight grip. One of the village boys saw her kicking the cat while he was parking his bike. The next day, everybody was talking about Good like she was no good.

It did not matter to them that Good had been very good every day for over 20 years. And it did not matter to them to find out what really happened. The villagers only repeated what they heard, and judged Good accordingly. After that day, Good still went on being good, because she was not good for the sake of looking good, but being truly good. If she had stopped being good after being called bad, then the village people would have been right by changing the color of her light in everybody’s eyes. But by remaining TRUE to herself and her good deeds, she defeated their words and convinced them they were wrong, and in time, Good’s reputation returned to being gold again.

In the end, nobody can judge another man’s heart, but Truth. Always be good for yourself, and not for the sake of others. Each man is responsible for the weight of his own heart. And to this day, Good still fights the good fight to stay good.

Suzy Kassem Blog Censorship

January 22, 2014 - Leave a Response

Image

In 2011, I posted an article on Atlantis that keeps getting tampered with. In fact, the copy on my blogspot was completely removed last year. The truth is, that article revealed where Atlantis was BEFORE the discovery of the sunken city near Alexandria in 2013. It has become more than obvious to me now, that the fact that someone keeps turning my text WHITE to cover my posting date, either means that I am revealing too much information that some party does not want revealed — or  that my words reveal strong insights that are not normal for a human like me. Yet they have always been later proven to be TRUE.

In addition, in December of 2009, I posted an article from Alexandria called THE WRATH OF 7 YEARS. This article has also been removed several times and even completely blackened out on my blogspot blog. I discovered that since my wordpress has a white background, my text is converted to white to hide my words. And since my blogspot has a black background, they convert my words to black to hide my “sensitive” articles. Also, many meaningful posts disappear completely.

There is severe censorship on the web that many are not aware of. There are many sensitive topics that shouldn’t be considered “confidential” in the first place, yet they are being intentionally concealed from the public.

This suppression of Truth is dangerous. Very good people are being bullied and oppressed behind-the-scenes, and this is why there is no more truth and substance found in our media, TV sets, or on any commercial platform. Superficiality is glorified and flaunted, while those with truth and substance in them are being  silenced, discredited, erased, and shoved under a rug . They are forcefully hidden from the ears and eyes of the oblivious masses because what they share with the public scares those who silence them.

A THINKING EXERCISE TO RE-AWAKEN THE CONSCIENCE

January 22, 2014 - Leave a Response

A Mirror of a Million Divine Mansions

The most important words mentioned in all your holy books and scriptures are one and the same:

“You will know the good from the bad by their actions.”

A good man will never harm or oppress another. A good man will share his last morsel of food with others in need, and die of hunger when he no longer has any food — instead of cheat or steal from others to survive. This is the mark of an honest, selfless man. There is a leader much greater than all your leaders combined, and that is the Creator, who is also even greater than all your parents combined.The Creator is the true parent of us all, and the parent of all our parents, including all the animals and planets on this planet and others planets far and beyond. This beautiful entity does not have a drop of hatred in His/Her spiritual composition. And this magnificent entity gets very sad and disappointed to see His/Her children fight and divide because He/She is the greatest parent of us all — and NO PARENT likes to see their children fighting and killing each other. The Creator WOULD NOT approve of you puncturing, harming, cheating, or misleading any of his children. Yet, he would approve of you loving and standing up for all your brothers and sisters. If you harm one of his creations by the hair, He/She will harm one of yours by the hair. Fair is fair. And the Creator is FAIR and square. LOVE is the ultimate religion. Amplify LOVE and your heart will GROW. Amplify HATE and your heart will shrink. And in the end, as I keep reminding all of you, it is only the weight of your heart that truly matters in the end. LOVE is truly the only answer to all this madness. This last line is also written in ALL your religious books and scriptures, but most importantly, it is elegantly scribed inside your own hearts.

If all men are made in God’s reflection, then why do some people continue to acknowledge only what is in their part of the mirror? If every man was truly created EQUAL, and in the image of God, then how can any man claim that one race is better than another, or that one one nation is less deserving than another?

IF A WOMAN COULD ONCE AGAIN RULE EGYPT

December 5, 2013 - Leave a Response

Woman for President of Egypt

IF A WOMAN COULD ONCE AGAIN RULE EGYPT

By Suzy Kassem

If I, Suzy Kassem, a woman, could rule Egypt,
I would turn Egypt into the most powerful nation in the world,
And every citizen of Egypt, would become a world-class citizen of the world.
I would make it easier for any Egyptian citizen to be able to travel and explore beyond the nation’s boundaries,
And there would be no limits –
For anyone wanting to expand their knowledge
And pursue their dreams.

YES. If a woman could once again rule Egypt.

If I, Suzy Kassem, a woman, could rule Egypt,
I would return Egypt into the mecca for the cultural arts.
All theaters across Egypt will be restored and re-opened.
A regime that does not like to be criticized is a regime that knows it is cheating the people.
 A nation where Truth and Justice prevail should never be afraid of any kind of scrutiny.
All avenues for creativity will again flourish.
All master craftsmen will return to their work.
No sculptures or products made in China will be allowed for sale in tourist areas in Egypt again.
Egyptian sculptors will return to traditional sculpting.
High quality standards in all fields of art will be restored.
Any sort of recognition in the entertainment industry or any avenue of the arts will be based on true merit. This is a must.
Egyptians will return on the world stage as being the mightiest producers of the greatest art ever – no matter the form.
Grant programs to encourage the arts will be introduced on a grander scale.
Higher standards will be expected in cinema, music, and all fields of art.
 Art  has always been half of Egypt’s beauty.
We must water it, cultivate it, and treat it like a flower.

YES. If a woman could once again rule Egypt.

If I, Suzy Kassem, a woman, could rule Egypt,
I would remove the word “wusta” from the Egyptian vocabulary.
Nobody stands between a man and God, so why should a man stand in the way of a man of merit
and an honorable opportunity — if he has the right qualifications and is the BEST man for the position?
 A man’s true worth should only exist in his actions and the coloring of his heart.
However, if a man presents himself for an opportunity, he should only be judged based on his true merit and character – and nothing more.
It should not matter who a man’s father is, where he comes from, and what he does for a living.
Every human is equal in God’s eyes and shall be treated as such in Egyptian society –
and before the law.
 Inequality is the platform for injustice.
 Unfairness always leads to problems.
 If we keep this imbalance, there will always be turbulence.
The term “wusta” should never replace “true merit”.
There is no truth in this practice. It is dishonest and unjust.
It is not fair that brilliant minds sit at home wasting away,
While many men who are not properly trained for their positions –
sit in high positions of power simply because of who they know.
This is why Egypt is drowning in corruption and aimlessness.
Egypt needs the smartest talent and minds to move it forward,
NOT the most connected people.

YES. If a woman could once again rule Egypt.

If I, Suzy Kassem, a woman, could rule Egypt,
I would make The New Egypt a mirror of the First Egypt installed by our ancestors.
The New Egypt will stand on two legs and these legs only: Truth and Justice.
The Laws of Truth and Justice will return to Egypt and her eyes will be everywhere.
 There will be no more corruption in the courts, in administrative affairs, in rulership,
or within the police force.
The eyes of Truth and Justice will be everywhere.
All criminals who lie, cheat, steal, or kill will be tried before the courts and penalized with an equal hand according to the law regardless of who they are
 or who they know.

YES. If a woman could once again rule Egypt.

If I, Suzy Kassem, a woman, could rule Egypt,
There would be high standards set in construction, food quality, education, and medicine.
If students can only pass classes with the assistance of tutors, then we need smaller classes and better teachers. The new Egyptian will be required to know at least two languages and be proficient in technology before the age of 18 to qualify for a free college education. If one should master THREE languages, the Ministry of Education will send that student overseas to study for a M.A or PhD, on the condition that they commit at least seven years working for the Egyptian government when they return. We need first-class world citizens to be part of our country’s administration and we will take care of those we cultivate.  I want every Egyptian to speak different languages and to travel. The government will provide grants to everyone who graduates with a higher degree in or outside of Egypt to travel to at least one part of the world as part of an exploratory, business, media, OR diplomacy program.

YES. If a woman could once again rule Egypt.

If I, Suzy Kassem, a woman, could rule Egypt,
I would make sure all ancient artifacts belonging to Egypt are returned to Egypt. All foreign archaeologists will be forced to return to their native countries at once. There will be no more plundering of the dead in Egypt and strict penalties will be enforced on those disturbing or disrespecting the dead in any form. Egypt will never rest in peace until she is back in one piece.
EVERYTHING WILL BE RETURNED.
 There would be no more destruction, abuse, exploitation, or stealing of Egyptian antiquities.
All museums would be ordered to return everything at once –
Or they will be sued and boycotted by the Egyptian government and the youth of Egypt for stealing the belongings of their ancestors, exploiting their dead, and misinterpreting their history.
If anybody wants to see parts of Egypt,
THEY must come to Egypt to see her.

YES. If a woman could once again rule Egypt.

If I, Suzy Kassem, a woman, could rule Egypt,
I would CUT all relations with countries trying to push for nuclear power plants to be built along the Sinai.  Nuclear Energy is unnecessary for Egypt when we have the means to tap into solar energy as we did before.  Egypt is a mighty nation filled with the world’s best engineers. The smart engineer knows this deal would jeopardize the safety of Egypt and benefit only its enemies.
NO NUCLEAR POWER PLANTS IN THE SINAI.

YES. If a woman could once again rule Egypt.

If I, Suzy Kassem, a woman, could rule Egypt,
The best journalists, educators, scientists, doctors, artists, writers, and engineers would be rewarded each year by the President in front of the media and all Arab nations. Excellence in all fields will be encouraged and commended. We need bold, honest reporters to keep truth and justice prevalent across the land.  It is time to honor them instead of silence them.

YES. If a woman could once again rule Egypt.

If I, Suzy Kassem, a woman, could rule Egypt,
Terrorism of any sort would not be tolerated.
Penalties would be doubled for those that claim they stand for God
Yet their actions and words do not reflect such.
Tarnishing the image of Egypt,
Or an entire religion
By claiming to act for them,
Yet your actions prove you are against them,
Will weigh dangerously in the courts.
There would be no hypocrisy in Egypt. Only Truth.

YES. If a woman could once again rule Egypt. 

If I, Suzy Kassem, a woman, could rule Egypt,
 I would make sure the Egyptian parliament is divided equally amongst Muslims and Coptic Christians. Both religions are dominant forces in Egypt. Both wings are needed to make Egypt fly strong. Religion will never be used to divide and cripple the citizens of Egypt. We will be a peaceful nation inside and outside our borders.

YES. If a woman could once again rule Egypt.

If I, Suzy Kassem, a woman, could rule Egypt,
I would remove all dams along the Nile.
This will also go for Ethiopia.
No dams that conflict with the natural divine flow of nature will be constructed.
In the past, both Egypt and Ethiopia experienced the greatest heights of their civilization when the Nile was allowed to flow naturally – controlled only by the forces of nature.
A fraction of the instability experienced in both countries today is due to the plugging of the Nile.
You cannot stick a tampon in a woman and leave it there and not expect negative side effects.
Man was not created to play God or to take command of his orchestra.
Let Mother Nature flow as she was intended.
The prosperity of Egypt has always depended on the Nile.
Our ancestors were able to adapt to floods, and so must we.
Agriculture will return to being Egypt’s chief export.
 We will export more food than we import. No child in Egypt should ever sleep hungry.
 As the first woman president in Egypt since the Pharaohs, tending to the Nile and the overall fertility and prosperity of Egypt would be my top priority.
I understand the importance of water and the cycles of womanhood.
This is Egypt,
and Egypt has always been
A WOMAN.

– Suzy Kassem
American-born and educated. Internationally-raised and traveled. An Egyptian National and Daughter of Egypt. I am Suzy Kassem. God is my only leader. Truth is my only sword. Guided only by my conscience, I am a true citizen of the world.

The throne of Egypt has always passed from the blood of woman, the blood of which initially belonged Isis.  This is why we call Egypt a woman and mother.  In addition, the ruling law of Egypt also once rested on the wings of Truth and Justice, which belonged to those of Maat. It has always been a woman holding up the foundation, the two legs and wings of Egypt. Without women, there would be no womb and no life. Without the flooding of the Nile, Egypt would have never thrived into the wisest, most powerful and richest civilization in the world. It is time to return Egypt to the powerful nation it once was. The country now needs a sharp eagle to lead the Mother of the World out of its state of despair, and reverse it back into a hopeful star of the future. Let that eagle be an intelligent and wise, objective and sensible — full-blooded Egyptian woman. A woman who will serve you, not oppress you and your children. A woman who loves the arts and understands the vitality of creativity in fostering a happy and healthy environment. A woman who can communicate across cultures, diplomatically and to the streets, and is a shrewd negotiator, peacemaker, protector and lion who leads only with her heart.

Please consider this poem as a list of ideas for a better Egypt.

I thank you all in advance.

Your Servant,
SUZY KASSEM

Reflections from a Mirror

July 5, 2012 - Leave a Response

Beautiful is he who recognizes what is truly beautiful even if the surface is ugly. Truthful is he who says what is true even if the truth is ugly. Ugly is he who measures beauty by its exterior without first weighing the interior. And ugly is the man who judges harshly what he sees looking out without first judging what he sees in the mirror. — Suzy Kassem

The People I Love and Respect

July 3, 2012 - Leave a Response

There is a guy living across from me owns a BMW 745 and a Porsche. And another man next to me drives a very basic, humble car. The first guy lives in a tiny one room condo and eats McDonald’s every day. He has no substance to him, is dumb as a nail, and sells I-Pads on Ebay only to buy material items to make him look wealthy. He does not even own his property, and his cars are purchased on credit. The second guy, lives very modestly, is extremely intelligent, is loaded with substance, personality, and charm — yet he dresses like a bum. Meeting him, you would not know that his dad is a Nigerian diplomat and a member of the UN. You would not know that he has gone to international schools all his life, speaks several languages, and has lived in many countries. You would have never guessed by looking at him…that he is a son of the privileged elite and is worth millions. Why not? Because he does not need to prove a thing to anybody. THAT is the kind of friend I LOVE.

Nothing turns me off more than a man who creates an image on the surface to compensate for his lack of SUBSTANCE. I do not care for guys who must have luxury cars — especially those who buy them on credit and live in houses they don’t own either (and ones much smaller than their cars). FOR WHAT? I would rather have the man who dresses like a bum, drives a shitty car — but is loaded with talent, intelligence, depth, personality, or character. I have friends from both groups — those that buy everything on credit because they want “the best”. And those who are the best and don’t buy anything extravagant on credit. When I ask some of my friends to take a vacation with me, they tell me they have to work to pay off their debts for their “toys”– AND they complain about their work. Nobody told them to buy luxury cars they can’t afford. But to some people, image is everything and substance is nothing. NEVER create an image if you can’t produce it. To me, that is the most disgusting thing in the world. If you need to prove to people that are you are worth something, then you probably aren’t worth a dime. Those that are truly worth something, do not need to prove anything to anybody. Their mind and experiences will reveal to you how rich they really are.

When you act superficial, you only attract other superficial people, and it will be hard to find someone who loves you for who you really are. When you act real and humble, you will attract real people who love the truth in you, and love you for YOU and nothing more. Unconditional love does comes with one condition…that you always be YOU and ONLY YOU always and forever. — Suzy Kassem (6/28/2012)

The Importance of Breastfeeding

July 3, 2012 - Leave a Response


The bond that strengthens between a breastfed baby and its mother is parallel to the strong bond between the moon and the stars. The solid connection of a breastfed baby to its mother becomes very noticeable as the child grows. The child is more calm, obedient, tapped into his/her mother’s thoughts (almost telepathic) and more intelligent — than the child fed powdered milk out of a can.

It is very important for ALL mothers to breastfeed their children. There is nothing better than natural warm milk from a mother. It is the BEST nutritional choice if a mother is healthy. Breast milk is known to contain essential long-chain fatty acids and a chemical called insulin-like growth factor, which alone could be responsible for boosting intelligence and strengthening the bond between mother and child. Not only that, breast milk helps infants fight off meningitis, asthma, obesity, SIDS, allergies, asthma, ear infections, diarrhea, and respiratory infections. However, breastfeeding not only benefits the child, but also the mother. How so?

Breastfeeding helps shrink the uterus, which greatly aids nursing moms to return to their pre-pregnancy shape and weight quicker. It also burns calories and helps lower the risk of breast cancer, high blood pressure, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and the risk of uterine and ovarian cancer.

As you can see, there are many POSITIVE perks for feeding your babies natural breast milk. However, there are certain instances in which mothers should NOT breastfeed.

If a mother is severely depressed, under a lot of stress, or just a mess — she should not breastfeed. Mothers that breastfeed should be physically and mentally HEALTHY. Internal anxieties, physical illness, fears, stress, emotional turmoil, and mental problems CAN get passed onto your child through breast milk. Just because the umbilical chord has long been cut, does not mean a magnetic chord has not appeared in its place. Naturally, a magnetic chord will always exist between a child and its mother, but when you breastfeed, your breast pumps out all your mental anguish into your breast milk — just as a funnel is used to fill a car with gas. If that funnel is dirty, so will be the gas — and depending on the content that is mixed with the gas — the car may run into problems. Or, if a car requests only premium gas and you give it regular gas, it may not run as efficient. Breast milk runs the same way. Always make sure your milk is PREMIUM. Why would any mother want to pass on her emotional and mental problems onto an innocent child? And if a mother is not healthy, your milk will lack the positive nutrients your child NEEDS.

You are what you eat applies to breast milk. You child grows into a reflection of the condition you were in when you were feeding him/her with your body. So please be smart about it. As for men, the perks for you are good and plenty. Not only will your woman develop bigger breasts and you will save a lot of money on powdered formulas, but she and your child will become way more healthier going this route — than by the artificial way. No way is ever better than the natural way. If you get breast implants, you immediately destroy the possibility of strengthening the sacred bond between you and your child, and eliminate the beautiful health benefits for you and your baby. Natural breast milk is COMPLEX and cannot be imitated. — Suzy Kassem  (06/2012)

Do Not Preach Hatred

People will steal your things and ideas, cover up your artwork, ruin good opportunities for you, hurt your feelings, speak badly of you, and destroy your name/credibility and hard work just from HATRED and ENVY. However, people will give you things, support you, offer you help when you need it, present you with opportunities, promote your ideas and hard work, and speak good of you just from LOVE and sharing LOVE. How much more proof do any of you need to know that there is more to GAIN from loving each other and being good to all people — rather than from hating and envying each other? When we continue to hate, we continue to LOSE. When we amplify mutual respect and LOVE, we have a lot to GAIN! — Suzy Kassem

Feelings Are Not Only Reserved For Humans

July 3, 2012 - Leave a Response

There are a lot of people who believe there’s a big difference between us and animals. In fact, they believe WE are more superior than animals, and this is a big myth.

There once was a female snake that roamed around a small village in the countryside of Egypt. She was commonly seen by villagers with her small baby as they grazed around the trees. One day, several men noticed the mother snake was searching back and forth throughout the village in a frenzy — without her young. Apparently, her baby had slithered off on its own to play while she was out looking for food. Yet the mother snake went on looking for her baby for days because it still hadn’t returned back to her. So one day, one of the elder women in the village caught sight of the big snake climbing on top of their water supply — an open clay jug harvesting all the village’s water. The snake latched its teeth on the big jug’s opening and sprayed its venom into it. The woman who witnessed the event was mentally handicapped, so when she went to warn the other villagers, nobody really understood what she was saying. And when she approached the jug to try to knock it over, she was reprimanded by her two brothers and they locked her away in her room.

Then early the next day, the mother snake returned to the village after a long evening searching for her baby. The children villagers quickly surrounded her while clapping and singing because she had finally found her baby. And as the mother snake watched the children rejoice in the reunion with her child, she suddenly took off straight for the water supply — leaving behind her baby with the villagers’ children. Before an old man could gather some water to make some tea, she hissed in his direction, forcing him to step back as she immediately wrapped herself around the jug and squeezed it super hard. When the jug broke burst into a hundred fragments, she slithered away to gather her child and return to the safety of her hole.

Many people reading this true story may not understand that the same feelings we are capable of having, snakes have too. Thinking the villagers killed her baby, the mother snake sought out revenge by poisoning the water to destroy those she thought had hurt her child. But when she found her baby and saw the villagers’ children, her guilt and protective instincts urged her to save them before other mothers would be forced to experience the pain and grief of losing a child.

Animals have hearts and minds too. They are capable of love, hatred, jealousy, revenge, hunger, fear, joy, and caring for their own and others. We look at animals as if they are inferior because they are savage and not civilized, but in truth, it is US who are not being civil by drawing lines between us and them — us and nature. A wild animal’s life is very straightforward. They spend their time searching and gathering food, mating, building homes, and meditating and playing with their loved ones. They enjoy the simplicities of life without any of our technological gadgetry, materialism, mass consumption, wastefulness, superficiality, mindless wars, excessive greed and hatred. While we get excited by the aural vibrations coming from our TV sets, headphones and car stereos, they get stimulated by the vibrations of nature. So, just because animals may lack the sophisticated minds to create the technology we do or make brick homes and highways like us, does not mean their connections to the etheric world isn’t more sophisticated than anything we could ever imagine. That means they are more spiritual, reflective, cosmic, and tuned into alternate universes beyond what our eyes can see. So in other words, ANIMALS are more advanced than us. They have the simple beauty we lack and the spiritual contentment we may never achieve. — Suzy Kassem

Know Where You Sleep

July 3, 2012 - Leave a Response

Many of us move into homes just based on their location, price, and looks. Yet only a handful of us study and weigh any potential home based on its history because, ultimately, it is ITS HISTORY that matters more than its price, location, and looks.

When negative vibrations are released into any space, they have nowhere to go but to stay. Every action emits either a positive or negative vibration. Some spaces are loaded with positive energies, and some with only negative. Negative energy eats up positive vibrations fast, and children and animals can detect these vibrations quicker than adults.

When I was about 9 years old, my family took us for a vacation to Port Said, an Egyptian fishing port where the Nile meets the Mediterranean. As soon as we arrived into our hotel room, my brother and two sisters started fighting viciously over something stupid. My parents had one room to themselves, while us kids were put together in another. When I tried leaving the room to call my parents to tell them my siblings were about to kill each other, the door was locked.So I banged on the door for a long time crying for help, but nobody on the outside seemed to be able to hear me. Only when I called their room by phone, did my dad rush over to stop the fighting. Both my parents said they didn’t hear anything, and the manager was called to see how the door had locked itself from the inside.

Later that night, I woke up to the sound of a man crying for help in Arabic. The noise was coming from the closet. I got scared so I tried waking up my brother or sisters, but they were deep in sleep to care. But then I thought that maybe something happened to my parents since the sounds were also coming through the wall. So I ran to the door, and again it wouldn’t open. I banged on it a few times but nobody could hear me. So I called their room again, and my dad came, opened the door normally, and investigated the room. He didn’t find anything. So I asked if I could go sleep with them and he said “NO”. So I started crying to go back with him to his room, but instead, he slapped me a few times, threw me back on the bed, and slammed the door on his way out. I had always troubled my parents by never sleeping at night. I still do.

With the lights turned off, the noises started happening again, so I forced my sister awake to listen to them, but she couldn’t hear anything and went back to sleep. Then I woke up my brother and he stayed up with me for a bit, but also couldn’t hear anything. I thought that maybe I was losing my mind! But the next morning, somehow I had managed to open the hotel room at one point in the night, and had fallen asleep right outside of my parent’s hotel room door. They carried me back into their room to sleep, while they all got ready and went for breakfast. And while at breakfast, the manager expressed his concern about finding me sleeping outside my parent’s door. He thought it was cruel punishment. So my dad told him I kept saying there was a man screaming in the closet and went to sleep there by myself. And that’s when the manager told him that there was a man brutally beaten and killed in the closet years ago. He locked in there and eventually set on fire.

I once lived in a home that was brand new, but its foundation used to be an ancient burial ground. Two suicides also happened there in a previous house built on the same ground. One burned down, and ours eventually got set on fire by lightning. You would have never known that property was cursed just by looking at a new contemporary house built on it. You would only discover that truth way later when you were forced to live in it. I have no good memories of that house. Those were the most turbulent years of my life.

Homes where murders, suicides, and lots of physical/verbal/mental abuse took place, are the worst homes to live in. You are basically moving into a black space with a depressing future. If you feel abnormal bouts of depression, anger, strife, conflict, fear, and hopelessness in your life, it could be your home. We spend more time in our homes than outside of them. You can have the best relationship in the world, but it can turn sour just by the negative energy in the place you are living in. Most of the time, people don’t understand that their negative attitudes and constant fighting could simply be a result of the negative vibrations of their environment. If you change the space, the fighting ceases, and the love continues. If you live in a place where the previous owners have only blossomed in love, then most likely the energy of the place is good. But if you discover that the previous owners got divorced after living there, or lost their jobs or business, you may want to investigate the history of that place even further. Believe me, it is worth it! The vibrations in your living environment become a reflection of YOU. Energy also needs food to flourish, and it can only feed off of other energy. Dousing a room with incense is only a quick fix. You can never erase another man’s history no matter how hard you try. — Suzy Kassem (7/2/2012)

Creating Heaven on Earth

June 16, 2012 - Leave a Response

 

Even HEAVEN would become hell if you were alone in it — or away from a loved one. And even if you were with your loved one but in hell, eventually you would cry to have you and your loved one together in heaven. So to create your own heaven on earth, make sure you and your loved one are in a place you both LOVE, because what could be heaven for one could be hell for the other. If that is the case, there will be no peace…even if one of you feels like you have found heaven. It takes the happiness of two birds in a nest to create HEAVEN. Otherwise, “HEAVEN” will become hell.– Suzy Kassem

Appearances Are Deceiving

June 16, 2012 - Leave a Response

I have two friends who aren’t what they seem on the surface. One speaks nicely and has good manners, but has a very ugly heart. And the other one, speaks ugly and has bad manners, but has a very beautiful heart. People that accept others only for what they see on the surface are fools. Substance is found inside a person, where their true worth is measured by their heart. My friend who speaks ugly — takes good care of her parents, makes many sacrifices, and is very tender and compassionate towards the sick, poor, animals, and the voiceless. The one who speaks beautifully — treats their parents badly, is very arrogant, selfish, and materialistic. Never judge someone by a picture, their words, or presentation. An image can be bought, substance cannot. — Suzy Kassem

We Are All Flawed

June 16, 2012 - Leave a Response

In today’s world, friends are MORE flawed than ever before. Yet to have friends, you have to be open to truly treating them as family. The same way you fight with a parent or sibling and make peace with them the next day, month, or year…you have to accept your friends the exact same way. Otherwise, you’ll find yourself without friends. Everyone is flawed, so don’t ever expect your friends to be flawless. Only the Creator is flawless. Jealously, rivalry, hypocrisy, frugality, and envy are natural feelings found in siblings — so don’t be shocked to see the same traits in your friends. Familiarity DOES breed contempt. Sometimes when people get close to you and discover how much alike you really are, they turn bitter knowing you have something more to offer than them, or opportunities not offered to them. Yet deep down, a lot of those people that hurt you the most could be the first to die for you. — Suzy Kassem

Be a Memorable Flower

June 16, 2012 - Leave a Response

Artists are the flowers of our world. The best ones are those that can stand out from the crowd and create their own concrete garden — to move us, inspire us, and makes us think hard. A flower with no smell to it is just something to look at. A flower that emits a beautiful fragrance is the one we want in our homes and on our walls. Your mission as an artist, is to become the best-smelling flower in the world, so that when the day finally comes when you are plucked from the ground, the world will cry for the loss of your mind-stimulating fragrance. Be different. Be original. Nobody will remember a specific flower in garden loaded with thousands of the same flower, BUT they will remember the one that managed to change its color to purple.– Suzy Kassem

The Stone of the Sun

June 16, 2012 - Leave a Response

carnelian, agate, aqeeq, haqeeq, aqiq, orange agate, carnelian powers

To make joy circle around your heart, find yourself a genuine chunk of Carnelian. It’s a very sacred and mystical stone and has powerful healing properties. It soaks in the sun and passes it onto your body to heal it. It also eliminates sadness and anger, and strengthens your mind. If you are distraught with severe sadness, hold a stone in your hand and it will dissolve all negative feelings and replace them with joy! PURE Carnelian is not cheap, remember this. A small stone the size of a penny should cost you $50 if it is REAL. However, if you buy it as ORANGE AGATE, a different title will get it for you cheaper. Any stone you select should be free of veins, cracks or chips, and must be solid in color — a bold orange (just like the SUN) when you hold it to light, and NOT a deep orange-red. WHY? Because the stone darkens with wear. The more the color matches the sun, the more powerful it is. Do not confuse carnelian with amber — or colored glass. If you want a piece a jewelry that contains the power of all the best stones in one, then make sure it has TURQUOISE, CARNELIAN, and LAPIS in it. The chemistry of all three of these stones brought together will balance you, protect you, heal you, and empower you. This combination has been popular in almost every culture on earth — FOR A REASON. If you must choose ONE stone and only one, then I would choose the stone of the sun…even though my favorite is lapis. One of the most prominent stones in all of King Tut’s belongings was CARNELIAN. Also, this was for a divine reason.Suzy Kassem

A Forked Tongue Split Two Ways

June 16, 2012 - Leave a Response

When a cop wants to bust a drug dealer, the cop will present himself as a drug user to put the dealer in jail. When a cop wants to bust a prostitute, he will disguise himself as a pervert in a car so he can put that hooker in jail. When a devil wants to promote his ideals to the people, he will dress up like a lamb to disguise he is a wolf — and he will talk like a lamb, and act in front of the people as a lamb, but will always remain a devil when he takes off his costume and congregates with his demons. This is why ancient scriptures and our holy books have warned us since the beginning of time to always watch the actions of others. Those who say they are good, will prove their goodness through their actions — not words. Eventually a cop reveals himself when he handcuffs a dealer or hooker — regardless of what he told them before. And eventually a devil will reveal himself to those paying close attention by the actions he makes, not his words. You cannot speak peace and kill at the same time. You cannot say you serve the people, but screw them at the same time. You cannot say you are a man of God, but promote everything that goes against God and his ideology of love and compassion. We were made to LOVE — not just each other — but nature too. Basic moral values are fading from society. If you want your children to copy the rats around you and the trash on our TV screens, do nothing. But if you want GOODNESS to exist in our future, teach love and make sure truth and love exist in your every word and action. Your actions are what get recorded, not your words or intentions. — Suzy Kassem

Money, Love, and Happiness

June 16, 2012 - Leave a Response

Money doesn’t mean anything. Those that tell you it means the world are those who don’t have it. So many people strive for financial wealth, but when you finally attain it, you still feel empty. Sadly, many won’t realize this truth until they are finally wealthy. That is why there are so many super depressed wealthy people. What truly matters more than wealth is ACCOMPLISHMENT. And I don’t mean accomplishing wealth. I mean accomplishing a dream driven by PASSION. If you have true unconditional love and you have accomplished a dream, you will find yourself the richest person in the world. Money cannot buy either. Simply living without any dream or passion is meaningless living. Simply living to make money is just the same.

Having unconditional love without a passion/dream is a glass half full. Having true love with a passion/dream is a glass with an open bottom. The trick is, to focus on achieving your passion/dream without looking for love. Love will come to you when you are ready, in the thickness of pursuing your dream — when you aren’t looking.

The Flame of Dreams

June 16, 2012 - Leave a Response

If you hold a candle close to you, its flame rises. And if you hold it away from you, its flame shrinks. The same way you hold a candle close to you, keep all your plans, aspirations, projects, and dreams close to you too. Do not share your plans or goals until you complete them, because as you hold your candle away from you, your goals will shrink in the eyes of others. Envy, jealousy, and resentment will put out your flame before it grows. Anybody who knows me personally knows I write from experience. And anybody who has been tuned into me over the past decade knows I always get super excited when I embark on new projects and ALWAYS share what I’m doing before I complete them; hence, they always fall to failure. Never reveal what you are doing until you have accomplished it. Resentment does not only come from those close to you, but also distant strangers. Guard the passions in your heart fiercely, so your flame reaches the highest ceilings of success without the eye of envy. — Suzy Kassem

Mind Power 777

June 16, 2012 - Leave a Response

Take a pair of dice. Shake them in your hand and prepare to roll them out onto a table. Before you do, there will be exactly three seconds of command time before you release your dice. Pay attention. In this short fleeting moment, you have to command all that you want and it will. Meaning, your brain has a three second order receival system — where anything you tell it you want, it will make happen. To best prove this, start with a pair of dice. Once you master ordering numbers, then go to a basketball court and shoot some hoops. Once you master nailing every basket, then try a roulette table…and so on. We currently use less than 20% of our mind’s true capability. Keep exploring and practicing the abilities of yours. — Suzy Kassem

Co-Exist

June 16, 2012 - Leave a Response

It’s so strange how we live in a supernatural transdimensional cosmic world, but many people see it one-dimensionally. There are multiple universes within universes, all operating parallel in time to our own universe, that to believe nothing exists beyond what our eye can see is truly delusional. We are .00000000000000000000000000000000000000000777% of what exists in the cosmos. To understand the chemistry of cosmology, you have to first know the four elements: earth, wind, fire, water. Of the four elements, fire can change the state of any substance. Meaning, properties made of fire can co-exist with the three other elements. Lifeforms made of clashing properties cannot live/breathe with us, but those that can mix with our own can co-exist. You may ask yourselves, how can anything live in the sun? Anything already made of energy/fire can enter fire. Humans are unique in that we possess all four elements in our make-up, but each has limitations. We can exist in fire, but our physical suits cannot. Some entities out there in our universe cannot handle earth’s temperature/climate/atmosphere the same way we can’t handle the scorching heat of the sun. Energy/light already exists in a candle/fire.

CO-EXIST
water earth – can
water air – can
water fire – cannot co-exist
water water – can
fire earth – cant
fire air – can
fire fire – can
fire water – cant
…and so on.
