Everything is Temporary-The Uplifting Truth to Transcend the Negative


Everything is temporary regardless of what it appears to be in your mind or in your external world. The challenges we face are temporary. Even if something seems as if it will kill you, it is temporary. Even if it does, it only kills the body, because who you truly are, never dies and was never born. You are an extension of God, remember? And God doesn’t die.

The emotional turmoil we experience is temporary. Whatever is alive in us depends on the attention we give it. Trust what’s permanent in your nature. Remember that the one who is in you is greater than all that’s out of you.

Have faith in this power within you. Know that you are the creator of this power, because you are one with God.

When It feels as if Satan Has You in Stitches: What do You Do?


c11620eab249346478e7a77272f23833I recently heard the above phrase from Bishop TD Jakes, in one of his sermons about overcoming the works of darkness. And I thought the phrase perfectly describes some of my experiences, and I believe some of yours.

The first question is how would it practically feel if you had stitches created by Satan? To answer, I will use my own experiences.

At one point in my life I felt as if Satan had strategically positioned me where he saw my every move, altered all my plans, numbed my joy, chased away all my friends, created conflict in all areas of my life and delivered millions of tons of emotional pain in my heart: pain that I felt in places I never thought I had. Satan had me in emotional stitches.

I had it so bad that I visionalized him as a deliberately ugly guy with whiskers made of sharp bones, irregular sharp teeth of different sizes that had holes in them, red eyes, a tongue longer than 20 feet, a mouth filled, and dripping of brown super-smelly foam, hair with strands of red eyed snakes, and a body filled with bumps of many sizes and shapes. This fool was beyond ugly.

I also envisioned him whistling and celebrating every time I hurt.

At one point, I sat down to figure out how I could find him and then stop him from harassing my life, and….I found nothing. I realized that it was all in my mind…as a big thought that I had personally created. Then it struck me that although I couldn’t negate my struggles, my definitions of these hardships were my creations—thoughts I had believed and expanded on. And I knew that since these thoughts were in me, I had the power to just observe them without defining or creating more of them. I could actually just witness them without giving them more of my attention. And that was the beginning of my breakthrough.

Do you feel as if Satan has you in stitches? Subscribe to my blog and you will be notified when I post the continuation of this story.

Meanwhile, hang in there. Remember that no weapon formed against you shall prosper—if you just believe.

What is Authentic Success?|Weekly Inspiration


In my early 20s, I believed that success meant getting a good education, having a lot of money, making hundreds of friends and being in good health. Later on, I concluded that having good friends who were true, not only to themselves but also to me, was a good measure of success. But there came a time when I didn’t have money because I was stuck in more ways than one. All my friends started disappearing one by one. Even those I held onto thinking that they were friends weren’t: because I later discovered that they mocked, despised and judged me. So, I found myself alone. No friends, no money and in ill health.

On the onset, I concluded that I was a failure….I wasn’t successful. This conclusion almost drove me insane. The more I believed that I was a failure, the more emotionally and mentally weakened I felt. I went down the spiral of negative thinking and negative feeling until I drove myself into high levels of stress.

Then one day, my husband gave me my own dose of medicine. “You are not any of these things that you are feeling or thinking. They are in you. So be yourself without any of that.”

So, I started meditating and praying a bit longer than before. I decided that I was enough, with or without friends. I started forgiving myself and letting go of all guilt. I exercised with more focus. I changed my diet to a more plant based diet. I wrote in my gratitude journal daily. And within a short period of time I won myself back from the insanity that I had allowed to influence my emotional, and mental wellbeing.

Over the years, I have discovered that being in charge of how we feel and not letting external occurrences influence our emotional wellbeing is authentic-success. I believe it is a universal fact that’s true to every human being whether they acknowledge it or not.

Whether you are a trillionaire or zeronaire, feeling unconditionally good and being okay with everything without letting other people or circumstances influence how you feel is not subjected to anything external to you. You can do it whether you live on a tree or in a mason. In my humble opinion, that is authentic success. Authentic, because it is true to our nature. it is not based on anything external to us. It is an inbuilt attribute that’s only shadowed by our conditioning. Most importantly, it is easier to achieve any other type of success when you are emotionally well…when you feel good about life and about yourself.

In my book, The Sanity Warrior: Becoming the Authority of Your Experiences, you will be inspired by the many personal stories I share. You will learn thirteen practical and proven emotional intelligence strategies designed to help you release the grip from negative conditioning and then become the authority of your experiences.

Loss gives a chance for an upgrade.”

~ Dr. Jacent M Mpalyenkana-Murray, PHD, MBA

There is always something good in every situation. The law of duality ensures that good and bad happen simultaneously: they support each other in being recognized. Note that you will never define or know what’s good without knowing what is bad. Good, aids us in identifying and defining bad. Day helps us to identify night. So, no matter how bad you’ve perceived your current situation to be, there is also something good at the other end of your perceptive instincts. It’s a matter of drifting your attention from what you’ve perceived as bad to the possibility of identifying what is good.

In this video, I explain more.

Remember that even a dark, stormy and thundering sky eventually clears up. Everything that comes must go. Every “thing” is temporary. This too will pass…you will see.

The Magic in Life’s Pains

“Sometimes whatever you think is killing you might actually be resurrecting you.” ~ Jacinta Murray

I went under the blankets and tried to shake myself to sleep but couldn’t. I coiled up in a ball and held myself for comfort but the hurt in my heart kept oozing through my senses like dogs let out of a restricted area.

It was 10.00 a.m. on a Monday morning, a day and time when I would normally be working or taking care of other business, yet I was in bed–seeking refuge in the bedding. I had hit rock bottom yet once again. Someone very close to me, someone I loved and trusted very much had done something that I had clearly told them not to do. They had betrayed my trust, and this wasn’t the first time. The pain was rooted more on the betrayal and less on the loss. Additionally, a few days earlier, I had received news about my immigration petition. They had sent me a notice with intent to deny: and this was like the 7th time they were denying my appeals. I just didn’t know what to do. I felt as if I had subconsciously made a contract with the devil.

I was in pain…emotional pain that I started feeling physically in areas I didn’t even know could feel pain. But somewhere somehow I knew that although I felt beaten and trashed by life, I had to get my broken-self together and figure out how to move forward. It was up to me.

Why am I Telling You This?

When I got up, I prayed for help from God…the Universe. And this quote came in my mind.

“Sometimes whatever you think is killing you might actually be resurrecting you.”

I recited the quote all day because it gave me hope and inspired me to accept what I perceived as horrible for my life, as part of the divine plan, and then move forward with confidence that there was magic in this pain.

It is because of these experiences that my heart opened up a bit more. I learned to be more compassionate to others–especially those who were experiencing similar incidents. I was forced to learn how to forgive from the heart and mind–which is releasing all doubt and the accrued negative emotions from my memory.

What do You Think About Loss? An Inspirational True Story


“Loss gives us a chance for an upgrade. ~ Jacinta M

Some time in December 2000, I flew from Kosovo to the UK and dropped off 10 suitcases of my “stuff,” at a friend’s house in London. I then proceeded to Uganda to be with my family for Christmas. I had been accepted by the University of Hull, where I was to begin pursing an MBA in January 2001.

The 10 suitcases included all the stuff I had accumulated during the two years I had worked in Kosovo–with the United Nations. In the suitcases were jewelry worth thousands of dollars, classy suites, dresses, shoes, crafts and a large music system. My friend Jeff promised to store my stuff in his house until I returned from Uganda.

A few days after arriving in Uganda, I called Jeff just to check in. We spoke briefly and he promised to call me back as soon he got home, but he never did. I waited for a few days and called him back and got his voice mail. A week before I traveled back to England, I called him everyday because he had also promised to pick me up from the airport, but his phone was off. When I got to London, I went straight to his apartment and his brother opened the door. “Jeff is not here and please do not come back here looking for him.” His brother screamed and then slammed the door closed. I went back several times to try and get my stuff, and the brother promised to kill me if I showed up at his door again.

Long story short, I lost everything. All I had was a small back-pack with a tooth brush, a pair of sneakers, a pair of jeans, a tee-shirt and a few other things.

 Why am I Telling YOU this Story?

I was sad for about a week, and then let it go. In a few weeks, I realized that losing my stuff was actually a blessing in disguise. I didn’t have enough space in my hostel room to store more than a suitcase. I was a student and had to dress and live like one. So, if I had all those suitcases it would be more of an inconvenience. And having no clothes gave me a chance to buy more trendy fashions that were also suitable for students. This is when I came up with the quote, “Loss gives us a chance for an upgrade.”

From then on, I wrote many quotes to reflect on whatever was going on in my world. When I read these quotes, they do not only inspire, but also humble me to remember that there is something bigger than my person-hood that’s in control of my life. I also realize that beyond my human knowledge, Grace, has my back.

I have recently published a book with 193 Serenity Quotes: These quotes are inspirational, thought provoking, empowering, and heart warming–designed with your happiness, peace and hope in mind.

These quotes will get you thinking beyond appearances.
