Ma ko lu mi (Don’t hit me)…

Hello everyone! My God I missed you all!!! It’s been a great privilege having to write to people that are distant from me, it helps me feel closer!
Bonne anĂ©e!… Happy new year!!!

You will ask what have you been up to girl?!
Well, I’ve been studying languages since last year, especially french and that’s because of you! It’s been quite interesting though! So let me quickly share an experience I had a long time ago!!! I should have written it since! Yeah I know right! *grins…don’t mind me…

Ok, so language! what’s the point of language if it causes so much confusion, the one power that we have to express ourselves, even our Spirit has a language, everything we possess speaks,  yet you don’t find such confusion in mute animals who have the challenge of language and are only limited to sign language,(but those cartoons tell us they talk, I really wanna speak with one!*sob*sob)lol… but they do know how to live an organized life! If u doubt me watch Animal planet…
So many languages that when translated to English, they all mean thesame thing!… God gave us, if you can remember, we were about to invade heaven *ROTFL* but God didn’t even bother He gave us languages that at first we were trying to figure out but now we can, to some extent there are people that are vast in like Five languages at least, mine is 3 English, yoruba and french I know it’s small, dont laugh at me though….but we just sometimes don’t harness it, that proverbs had to tell us to learn from the ants *tears*… Cant they just learn from us! *kidding

*Lol…

But we have combinations
Enough to build kingdom organizations
For heavenly manifestations
Yet our addictions
Has affected our reactions
We can’t differentiate between calculations
And assumptions
And we don’t understand consolations
And connections

Hahaha I was almost going to use the whole alphabets, I almost got you there right!, lol…maybe we should start speaking rhymes like the days of Hamlet…so ye all will learn to listen and use language appropriately for thy interest…lol..
This brings me to the experience which is my topic for today “ma ko lu mi” a Yoruba language phrase…
Be blessed…

So this driver in my bus kept saying to the driver of another bus “ma ko lu mi” a Yoruba statement in Nigeria meaning “don’t hit me”, I was wondering why he kept saying it, he could have just said  “ma ko lu motor mi” i.e. don’t hit my bus or something close to that you know,  cos it’s not him in particular that was going to be hit, it’s the bus, so somehow, he accepted he is the bus, because he was the one in control….hmmm….he maneuvered later.

But something struck me there; that languages are deep, we listen on the surface a lot of the time… That’s why it seems like we don’t think, I believe everyone can be brilliant, we just need to pay attention to this gift of language! Every subject carries a language!

Immediately this reminded me of how our spirit lives in our body and how we can control our body “flesh” and be like “ma ko lu mi please” when anything comes close to the flesh that will affect the spirit man! Language made me realize that we have control from the inside! Oh! My God!

God can’t assemble our bodies with a spirit we don’t understand or that doesn’t speak… Ce n’est pas possible! It’s not possible I mean!…

I know I’m always prone to end up sounding “Godly”, but where else, because I’ve lost a lot by not listening to the language on my inside and gained a lot more by listening to the language on my inside! Which is the language of the Spirit!

The point is, like my friend will always say in every statement! Haha…. My God he just always has a point… (Mr Ayo, the annointed minstrel!)….lol…
So the point is, listen to the language of the Spirit you carry on the inside of you! You just can’t fail!

I love you all back to back!!!!
