The Latest Haps in MoeCashWorld

The last two weeks have been a blessing, I've had the honor to meet lots of new musicians, artists, singers, MCees and just incredibly creative individuals in general. I've never felt like I'm on the right track as much as I do now. I know I'm meant to do something in the music industry, and I'm finally seeing that now. Big ShoutOut to Spaïcy, Wes'li, Pepe, Queen Godis & John Banzai, More Progress, More Success, More Blessings.

A few days ago, I woke up with a clear mind and a big decision made. I've decided to ice my Hip-Hop MC career for the time being, not saying I won't hit the mic every once in a while, but my own album per say is on hold until further notice. I would like to invest more time perfecting my producing & promoting skills. Never been a fan of the limelight anyways, I think my place for now is behind the scenes, making things happen for all these talented Artists that I've been given the privilege of meeting and collaborating with. God-willing, insha'Allah, it will be a choice made that will lead to more progress & prosperity.

In addition, I'm currently in talks with a business-smart brother from Chi-City to hopefully bring our set of artists together and throw down a show that will rock audiences. For the sake of not "jinxing" this opportunity, I'll wait till it's all official before I start spreading the good news.

Furthermore, also in talks with a really chill bloggin' fashionista to perhaps combine our passion for fashion and hit up a new joint blog collabo where we can both exchange our thoughts about the style industry. Talks are still in premature phase, but very excited to see what will turn out of all this.

Also, I just finished giving "The MoeCash Chronicles" a complete make-over, and I'm feelin' the new look. Hopefully, it will be as pleasing to the eye as it is to the mind. Check it out at http://themoecashchronicles.blogspot.com/

Lastly, I'm getting the IRIE All-Starz back in the music-making groove, and I'm very eager to start outputting some fresh new material for our listeners. I wanna drop a collaborative mixtape style album featuring Mighty Kalipssus, Phiraz, Chamzdeen and two of the newest members to the crew, Kes Copeland as well as MC Hollow. This is where I'll have the opportunity to really hone my own producing skills, and help each of these very talented brothers with their own creative gifts.

Think that's about it... well, at least for now. Looking forward to what's coming ahead, hopefully this is just the beginning.

Peace,
Respect and...
MAXIMUM BLESSINGZ.

my last love/letter

It has come time to Speak my Peace
So, spiritually I come forth writing this piece
I come because through you, my wisdom has increased
But I guess in God's eyes, our Bond completed its lease

So many months of denying myself the pain,
But now I understand, once I accept it and learn from it, then I gain.
But then again, life is full of non-surprises (i.e. coincidences), there's only one thing that remains the same
Ohhhh.. it took me months to figure how deep this wisdom was and how true it is:
"the only thing constant in life is... Change"

So, as I FINALLY taste my hearts peace of mind and serenity, I am finally embracing this new change in my life
And moving along to God's command and will power, back riddled with scars from spiteful people's knives
Who am I to question God's infinite reasoning and intelligence? Im finally gonna start goin with the flowin
Peace be unto you, your fam, your friends, I pray you do find the one that is destined to be lucky enough to have you, together snowin as you're growin....

The M.O.E.C.A.S.H. Chronicles (Oct 11, 2008) : What's been on my muthablessin' mind lately...

I just got home from work and I'm tired as hell
Take a look at my digital courier provided by Gmail
Scoping out all the many messages I receive on the daily
Than I thought to myself: What if God were to ever email me?
Or what if I could write to Him/Her/It what's on my mind
Maybe then it would help me to de-stress and unwind
What could I possibly write to the Creator of all the Universe?
Can I even find the right words or put together as clever a verse?
Like a highway of thoughts going hither & thither in my dome
I sit still motionless, than my fingers start moving on their own...
Lyrics pouring down my soul through my mind to my body and down to this electronic ink
I don't even take a moment to pause, nor a moment to second guess what I'm going to think
I just spew forth rhymes that tune together like chimes, and tears flow down my cheek
Who's writing this? Is it really me? Cannot be... My Spirit shuts my doubts so my Soul can speak
My Soul feels the world is getting weak, the world future's looking bleak, and humankind's evil nature is on a nasty streak, so what more does humankind seek?
Evidence of God exists everywhere yet we turn a blind eye to the big "Guy" living in the heavens up above in the sky
Than shit hits the fan, man blames man, man blames whoever he fucking can, man blames God for everything he doesn't understand, when man should realize God's Mercy he should demand...
And God's Will is THE ONLY Command,

pause...


Breathe...


Reflect....



This is Poetic Potency to stress the Urgency, cuz the state of the World, whether we're going to accept it or not, or admit it to ourselves or not, is in an EMERGENCY.
They think I joke... they think my brain's gone haywire & broke... but if only the Prophets suddenly awoke, then humankind might finally comprehend that this fight against our own demons is an uphill slope... To wash away sins after you die, they're ain't no Mr.Clean magic soap...
NOPE.

End of Transmission...

Don't look at me, I'm no preacher. I don't look or act like one neither. Where does all this come from then? My Soul.... Is it THAT powerful? What if we all combined our souls to look beyond the physical and into the spiritual, instead of going mental (as in "loco") maybe we should be more intellectual? maybe then we could start really making a difference in this world. Maybe. But till then, shit still gonna happen. People are still going to be asking themselves why does it happen... Vicious Cycle of Shit we live in, I'm wondering, do people enjoy living in shit??? If not, than why ain't there many people doing something about it? Oh yea... FEAR. Fear is what stops people from making a difference in this world. Fear because the system has people tied down to their jobs and silenced. Fear cuz if you should be brave enough to open your mouth, the backlash you would get from doubters, haters, pessimists, fearazoids (people that just live in fear all the time), not to mention family, or your job. Will humankind always live in fear of making things better because something good might actually happen, especially since we're such creatures of habit, so maybe we're just naturally attracted to creating shit for us to live in?!?! Come on, say it ain't so! I honestly, sincerely, genuinely hope not... cuz otherwise, we've only just fucked OURSELVES over, not God, not any of the Prophets, not anything or anybody else but ourselves.

100 Lessons - Chapter 2: Proof God Does Exist Share

I have discussed that there is a Balance in the Universe, now to consider what/who is behind this equilibrium. The 2nd thing I listed in my previous article "100 Lessons the Universe has Taught me thus far in Life" was:

2. God does Exist, whatever you wanna call the higher force out there, Dieu, Dios, Jah, Allah, Jahovah, El-oh, it's out there.

I know many people, and many of them do not adhere to the idea that a supreme being created everything... Some think that Muslim, Christians and Jews all believe in a different God because they each have a different name for the Almighty Creator.... Some think humans were created by aliens in some lab from another world... Hey, to each their own philosophy on life and the universe and how we came to be. However, I will use this opportunity not to judge those who don't believe in God, but to elaborate more on the points why I am convinced without a shadow of a doubt that He/She/It (in my view, God has no gender) does exist.

The Big Bang Theory... Darwin and the Theory of Evolution... humankind, sadly, has always had an miserable obsession with trying to disprove God's evident and very obvious existence. I really do mean "trying" because the more they try to prove God is a figment of man's imagination, through science or any other way, the more it proves to me that nothing in this universe is by coincidence the way it is. Think about it... The solar system for example: how does that just come from nothing? I'm no astronomer but it doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure out that it took an "entity of infinite intelligence" to design the stars, the sun, the moon, the planets and all else in between. God is the Architect of the Universe, plain and simple. That grandiose realm of worlds out there is way beyond our comprehension, and as many satellites they'll send out there, we'll never truly understand how vast and complex the Universe is.

All around us is proof of God's existence, just look at how mountains are shaped, how deep oceans are, how the sky can be filled with so many wonderful colors and shades, how the world's so complex yet so simply mesmerizing. Did all that just spur from nothing? Have you ever seen something appear out of nowhere? Like a building or a tree or hill just pop outta thin air? Unless you're on some heavy hallucinogens, clearly the answer is NO. Thing is, man is just too foolish sometimes to acknowledge it, maybe because of pride, or ego, or arrogance, or all of the above. Those who believe we came from monkeys, I mean come on, I know for a fact that my ancestors weren't no chimpanzees, maybe for some losers like George Bush that's the case (yea, I had to go there), but for the rest of us, we all came from Adam & Eve (hence, "Familia Univerzel"). Lie to yourself, say that you are related to hairy mammals, but just because we share so many similarities with them doesn't mean we came from them or evolved from them, it only means that they are our closest 'cousins' amongst all the species God has created and placed on this huge green planet we call Earth.

Speaking of evolve, why do people only associate that with biological and/or physiological evolution??? What about mental evolution? Or spiritual evolution? I think humankind is far from where we should be in the 21st Century. Last I heard, and correct me if I'm wrong, we use only like 5% of our brain's capacity... which leads me to think, what the hell can we do with the rest of it?! That's where our lack of (perhaps even fear of) thinking outside the box comes in. We only think of evolution in the metaphysical context, never in the intellectual... why? Because most, not all (I will not generalize), would rather live in the comfort of denial. Because instead of smarting ourselves up, we take a sick pleasure in dumbing ourselves down. Acknowledging the fact that God does exist will mean that all our actions here, in this life, will be accounted for, and we actually have to own up to them some day. I know it seems like a frightening thought, but honestly, it should provide reassurance more than anything. I have Faith that people that hurt others in this life, and thought they got away from it, have yet to meet the consequences of their actions. People like Britney Spears need God in their life cuz that's how you can tell when someone's totally lost complete control of their life... and I ain't blaming her, or trying to make her look bad, but just using an example most are aware about since her life gets more coverage than the dying children in Iraq.

In short... and I always try to keep these things short yet they always turn up a few paragraphs long, the point I hope I made was that no matter how much humankind will come up with ridiculous new ideas of how we just came from chimps, and the universe just spurred outta nothing, the more it reinforces my conviction that God does exist, and that He/She/It is the 'divine entity' behind it all. Like the plant that grows from a seed, which was no mere coincidence but a carefully detailed design of Life by God, humankind is but one of the many seeds of creation by the 1 Creator we all worship, believe in, seek forgiveness and mercy from, ask guidance and spiritual salvation to.


Peace,
Respect and...
MaximumBlessingz,
M.O.E.C.A.S.H.™

P.S.: I'd like to take this moment to wish all my Islamic Sisters and Brothers worldwide a blessed most spiritually uplifting Eid, may the month of humbling be accepted and rewarded for each and all.
