“I am dedicated to using all of my resources to facilitate my mental, physical, emotional, and spiritual growth.”
In June of 1964, Malcolm X gave a speech at the OAAU founding rally, and ten words jumped out at me which, I think are the perfect caveat to this affirmation, “we intend to bring into existence by any means necessary.” Think about it, using every resource that’s available to grow ourselves in every capacity with the intention to bring it into existence by any means necessary. That sentiment is incredibly profound. Using everything in our wheelhouse to grow into and finitely walk within our power. There is a point of understanding that a person comes to with maturity when the only focus is being a better or the best version of themselves. Perhaps that is the moment that you have come to. If so, now is the time to throw away the ideas of what or how growth is supposed to look and be okay with the twisted, flipped, reversed looking, and potentially fast or slow-moving path of growth. No two journeys are alike, and that’s the beauty of our path. It builds us all in the most unique way tailored to what is needed for our evolution. The only important focus in my mind is that there is movement.

Lotus Affirmation: Be so dedicated to your own growth that it leaves little time to engage in any low-level energetic thoughts or actions. That is not to say that they will not come, it is to say that perhaps you will not choose to engage them.
