The Terrific Speed of Life…

Posted: April 1, 2012 in Uncategorized


For those of us with knowledge  wisdom cipher on cap, the degrees represent a multidimensional commentary on life.  There are racial, social, and psychological elements (among others) woven into the fabric of the messages that these lessons convey. Since understanding is indeed the best part, and constant elevation is the purpose of showing and proving, these points will never become outdated as long as one is truly living out Supreme Mathematics.  Our mortality is evidence that none of us can outrun time.  Physical death is an end that we will all ultimately meet.  However, I’m fascinated by the way that some people die, how early in life they die, and the correlation between the speed of their lives and the age at which they perish.  Today’s degree in the 1-40 builds on the pace at which the original man makes history…”a year to every mile.”  I always draw that up to speak to the rhythm of life and the idea that one should strive to synchronize their personal rhythm with it, so that equality between the two is established. 

The wisdom of society’s culture borns the reality that death is shrouded in the mystery of the unknown.  In many cases the how and why isn’t made manifest until after expiration.  That being said, there are observable patterns we can detect which are strong indicators that the “grim reaper” is near.  Personally, the fast life has never been my cup of tea.  I’ve always tended to take calculated risks, even before I got mathematics, and now that I have it, said truth is all the more real.  I don’t drive fast, I don’t start shit, and I generally avoid potentially explosive people and situations.  My ole’ Earth says that I choose the path of least resistance, which is definitely an accurate statement.  Even as a child I found it to be equally intuitive and a mode of operation that served me well.  As I’ve gotten older and come in contact with a variety of people, the speed at which a person lives has always been something I took note of and used as a point of analysis correspondent to them.  The trend has overwhelmingly been that the faster a person lives, the more bullshit they encounter and the higher the likelihood that they will die soon. 

I was building with my Queen last night about the whole science of  living fast.  We were exchanging stories about people who came into large sums of money and wound up broke or in jail within a short period of time.  The discussion was sparked by a documentary on ESPN we were watching about the night Tupac died.  I’ve heard quite a few interviews with people close to him in which they remarked that Pac knew he was gonna die and frequently commented to that effect.  I don’t doubt it.  The reason I bear witness to that idea is because he felt the increasing danger brought about by the speed of his life.  He had been shot and incarcerated already and spear-headed a bi-coastal war of words between east and west full of vitriol and violent overtones.  The writing was on the wall.  What this speaks to is the importance of mentally being present in every moment and taking the necessary time required to consider  the potential ramifications of your associations and actions.  Consider this short list of elements relative to Tupac’s death, and note the pathology:

-On the night of his death he was hangin’ out with Bloods although he was not a Blood himself.

-He initiated a fight in which he helped stomp out a known Crip.

-He was highly visible on the night in question because he went to a Tyson fight and, since he was having an after party at a local club, he was very easy to find.

-Less than two hours after the beating he was murdered before he ever even made it to the party.

Now is it me, or did that nigga get served by the universal justice at a terrific speed?  Rapid action invites equally rapid reaction.  Hyperactive pace is typically the bedfellow of inefficiency because details tend to get overlooked.  This is especially true in the realm of human thought.  Deliberation is a critical process through which refinement is applied to a given thought.  The benefit this yields is that the ensuing action is more definitive from the standpoint of intention, and therefore less likely to be categorized as an accident.  There also tends to be less collateral damage involved.  Hence the tried and true universally applicable directive, “TAKE YOUR TIME!”

Time taken is, in many instances, synonymous with quality.  Aged wine is the most expensive.  Older people are considered to be the wisest.  Hand made goods and organic foods are highly regarded because of the lengthy processes involved in their production.  In today’s microwave instant gratification society a lack of patience and controlled pace can be deadly.  Countless lives have been lost to the fast life.  Sometimes, slower is better.
