A Dreamer

In Business, Culture, Daily Inspiration, Journal, Jun E Caniel Conversation Series, Jun E Caniel Kids on July 14, 2018 at 8:52 pm

A dreamer…

To leave the world better than its been…

The belief to persist and never give in…

The vision to see past what’s never been lived…

To stand firm on everything within…

A dreamer… ~Jay Caniel

Happiness

Too many people measure how successful they are by how much money they make or the people that they associate with. In my opinion, true success should be measured by how happy you are…

happyHappiness…
Unexpected similes…
An unexplainable feeling inside.
It’s not social ’cause that means you would need consent of a population to be defined…

Freedom and happiness coincide…
Collide with my heart and mind…
We all want to express our insides…
So do it freely before you die…TIYA CANIEL
Fly…
Fly like a kite in the wind…
Be free and express it with a grin…
One race… In greatness we all related..

What Box?…

In Daily Inspiration, Jun E Caniel Conversation Series, Motivational Speaking, Thoughts on April 1, 2014 at 12:35 am

So today I had a thought…  They gave me a box to live in, and I am thankful for all people who shitted in my box… lol. You forced me to create a Jun E World… From my sister who told me I Jay Caniel would never graduate high school, to her husband who always called me a day dreamer… Then, there are the “adults”  who play the success game… You know the ones who act like they have a lot going on but really hiding behind things like jobs, marital status, houses, cars, titles, and oh yea they serve on boards lol… To the pastor who turned his back cause I didn’t want  to scam people and have them pay for salvation… I thank you all! To the “affluent” woman who referred to me as a crow, I thank you too…

To the dreamers: Take all the bricks they throw at you and build your world. Build it so big that they can’t deny you! Build! Because your intentions will uplift many. Build because you have purpose and legacy. Build so much that you have a stench about you! Then go back and extend your hand to the ones who shitted in “your” box. Then you will see that it was never really your box, ’cause you cannot be contained!  That box was theirs all along. Today is a great day… Jun E!

What Happens?…

In Jun E Caniel Conversation Series, Motivational Speaking, Thoughts on March 26, 2014 at 9:32 pm

So they give us these images… They give us history, religion, a dream, education, a good lifeaamericandream2 etc… The dream comes to us in tiny boxes and we only get to choose from the right.. ‘Cause left would be so wrong… Oh! Be careful cause if you choose wrong it gives the neighbors something to talk about… Or maybe we will go to hell, or maybe their god will be angry… Hmmmm… So what happens when we don’t fit the images? What happens when I’m so creative that I Jay Caniel create my own dream, live my education and make his-story (history) into MY story? What happens when I’m not robotic enough for you to brain wash me with your ambiguous cult-like religion? What happens when you realize I’m not a sell out like the ones before me… What happens when my mane cannot be tamed? So self made you cannot even understand how I was made… Explain?

Coming Undone…

In Art, Daily Inspiration, Jun E Caniel Conversation Series, JUN E LOVE, Thoughts on January 18, 2014 at 5:51 pm

“She’s Come Undone/She Was Open” is a piece that probably took me 5 hours total over a 3-4 year period.  I started out painting a canvas that was covered in masking tape in some areas.  The tape was peeled off and I began adding pieces as ideas for what this piece would be crowded my head.  A few strips of sandpaper here, the zipper of from a skirt there…The possibilities are always endless when starting a piece.  Rarely do I know ahead of time what the end product will be, and this is part of the fun and frustration sometimes. Lol…there’s usually at least a concept in mind, so I take that and gather some materials that I think would be fun to experiment with and then have at it.  It is very liberating to let your creative spirit guide you as you play and try different techniques.  The same can be said about life.

20140116_112702 The story behind “She’s Come Undone/She Was Open” :

This piece is about a woman who is usually guarded and cold falling in love with someone for the first time.  It is unexpected and surprisingly blissful.  At times, she is unsure of how to embrace this experience. Her lover has opened her heart in a way that she never dreamed was possible.

It isn’t just about falling in love, though.  It is also about finding our passion in life…finding our way and allowing ourselves to be in love with ourselves AND life.  I pray that we all will find the experiences, places, and people who make us come undone and leave us breathless.  For me, one of those things is creating.  I am learning to let my guard down and just embrace the flow of love while I am in my bliss.  It’s all love…

Peace,

T. Caniel

 

 

Our One Shot At Greatness

In Daily Inspiration, Jun E Caniel Conversation Series, Motivational Speaking, Thoughts on December 21, 2013 at 4:01 pm

Lately, I have found myself in a mentor/confidante position and it’s been a life changing experience.  Two people I know have lost loved ones in the past couple weeks, and I have had the privilege of mentoring others who aspire to tap into their own greatness.  Of course, talking with these individuals as they grieve and try to find their paths immediately brings up the inevitability of death for me.  Our time on this earth is so short.  A lifetime is but a second…

Are we truly taking advantage of our opportunity to be great in this lifetime? At this most poignant time in my life, I have decided to take full advantage of my shot at greatness!  I say this with astonishing conviction.  My goal is to fill this life with love, peace, and happiness.  It sounds so corny but it’s what I want for me.  If I fill up my life to brim with those things, I will successfully build the legacy I envision.  Happy

There have been too many brushes with death, too many wake up calls and far too many confirmations to sit around and settle for a mediocre existence.  I’m working on LIVING, not merely existing.  It’s my responsibility to my generation and those after me to pave a new path to greatness and live as an example.

This is a great feeling!  To be at the cusp of manifestation is unbelievable! I’m standing on the edge of the cliff looking down in nervous anticipation knowing the Creator will build a bridge right under my feet as I make strides across the canyon to my vision fulfilled.  “Oh! What a feeling!” (in my Prince Hakeem in “Coming to America” voice).  Something is stirring inside and outside of me.  It’s swirling around me as my strides get longer and faster paced…I am sprinting and running wildly to my greatness!  What about you?  Stay Jun E, my people.

Peace.

Look back and smile…

The next time someone Mediocre gives you advice… Smile! In life people are either thermostats Jay Caniel or thermometers. One merely checks the temperature… While the select few of us regulate the temperature. You see when you’re living in your purpose and creating it’s all new. Don’t expect the rats to see the unseen…  After all, they can’t even see their own cheese… hmmm…  What makes you think they will see your grand, unrevealed greatness?… It’s like asking someone who can’t swim for advice about jumping into the ocean… Just do it! You will experience what it means to be living! You will end up looking back at the cliff where they all stand looking over the edge, watching you… Just smile and say, “Jun E!”

I’m Just a Painter…

In Culture, Jun E Caniel Conversation Series, Motivational Speaking, Thoughts, Uncategorized on October 3, 2013 at 3:14 pm

You see, I’m just a painter…with this mind I lay the background down on the canvas. I let it dry…

They say it’s time for a new coat, but I’m not cold… I’m just a painter…

www.jcaniel.com

These walls are filled with color and if you look close enough there are shiny white teeth staring at you.

Can you see them?

I paint smiles.

It starts in my mind and resonates in yours. I leave you no choice but to imitate the picture I painted on your mind.

I hope you don’t mind…

I’m just a painter… Forcefully painting over the madness and mess the world has laid. You know the beauty of painting is that it’s never too late to paint over the old, giving way to the new. But what do I know? I’m just a painter…

Imagining 200 hundred years from now who will pick up all these paintings… Sometimes this mind seems so ahead like dog years. Still I paint not afraid or worried if they will crucify me….. Imagine painting pictures that will last 200 years!

I see their faces as they continue the revolution and make sure the target is hit.

www.jcaniel.com Hmmmm. I see their faces….. No hunger, no poverty, no inequality. Abundance…. I see abundance… But I thought abundance…. I created abundance…. And now I paint abundance….. I’m just a painter….
