Before I even continue, I want to warn you of the content of my blog. Over the years I have adjusted my concepts and ideas, I have learned and grown, and I have changed as a Man. With that stated, I leave my old content up here for your consumption. I may or may not agree with them now, but they mark a transition for me and are historical record of those changes. Keep that in mind as you read and try to understand my struggle and mind. Thanks!
A few years ago I was different. I went from the Marines to a civilian life, a Married man to a dating man to a single man and back to a dating man, I was working and passed through 3 different companies and did a few different things. I was a “religious” christian then I was a “religious” Muslim and now I have no religion, but I 100% believe in God and I read and follow the Qur’an while respecting the other guidance given to men. I am not a special person, but I do listen to the signs in the world and pay close attention to how I change and grow.
My website is all of me and my growth. Parts of it are a carry over from my old blog-spot (www.teddy3indc.blogspot.com) and does not necessarily represent me now, but that is just what it is. I write about whatever I find interesting. Sometimes it is matters of God or religion. Sometimes it is videos uploaded from my YouTube Channel http://www.youtube.com/user/Teddy3indc . Sometimes I write about my life and struggles. I always write and post from a truthful orientation. I post my writings daily and frequently, and may even post books that I am writing or new ideas that I have.
I am currently writing a book called “Dear Jayden”, which is dedicated to a little boy that I once had in my life. It is written for the single mothers, the little boys that they raise, for the men who were raised by them, or for anyone that finds wisdom through struggle. I plan to publish the book in 2013 and adapt it to be a fiction book with real lessons of growth in it. http://teddy3indc.com/category/dear-jayden/
I am also preparing to continue my book called “The Talk”. I do not want to describe it, but I want you to let me know what you think. http://teddy3indc.com/category/the-talk/
Soon I am going to start my work on a Non-Profit that will be called (hopefully) TED Kids. It is about empowering children to be able to make decisions through mentorship and a balanced presence. The goal is to start an organization that will give help to single mothers, and give guidance to those little boys that they are raising in order make the next generation of children better. These children will be taught about adulthood and will be given life skills provided by coaches and men who act as their counselors to manhood. The idea has just started to be made, and soon I will be updating everyone with more information.
Time that we spend on earth is entirely unknown to all but the creator of time itself. For this it is important for us to remember our place on this planet, in this universe, and of this existence. We are created but merely to “Be”, and our being is meaningful beyond our individual perceptions. My intent with this Blog is to make peace with the world. It is important for me that my intentions be known so that not only do I get to process through all of the things that I may be responsible for, but also to show others that we transgress much more frequently than we think we do. In a world of uncertainty it is distinctly important to be mindful of each of our possible mistakes. It is important to know that each and every one of our actions has an effect on the world as a whole, and that everyone of us is a key role player responsible for our own actions.
If you continue to follow my thoughts on here……. thanks! I will post “Blogs” that have to do with this topic. Maybe to inspire others to have some thought as to what they do on a day to day basis. Maybe to receive my own peace. Maybe to reinvent my own life from the perception of an outsider. I feel compelled to do things nowadays, and this compulsion can be nothing but good. When did compulsion in kindness lead man astray? When did compulsion in honesty and feelings lead you away?
Live life with passion and purpose. Be open to experiences!
