I’m thinking 200 years in time…
Thoughts running like a mile….
Heart flowing like the Nile…
Lungs blowing like my mind…
Cant function in real life
So I created my own space and time…

The Caniels in Puerto Rico

The Caniels in Puerto Rico

Rooting my self in the earth… Centering my mind, making sure my kind will live on… Getting hit by the wind, it produce a slight grin… The Sun kisses my face, which lights up this place… Ahhhh this must be it… Thanks and praises to the Most High…. Namaste
(Excerpt from Jun E Musings)

Just a thought

In Daily Inspiration on April 23, 2014 at 4:05 pm

Jun E ThoughtThat feeling… That feeling when you got permission to go outside… That feeling of meeting love for the first time… Or maybe you stayed up on the phone all night…That feeling of watching a beautiful sunset. Or maybe you got some well needed rest… Being told your beautiful for the first time… Or maybe the feeling when you hear your favorite rhyme… The effects of your smile… Or maybe the taste of your favorite glass of wine… Thats wealth.

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?

Jun E windowSometimes all you need is a window…
Maybe opportunity…Staring out as the colors of the world splash around forming things… hmnm maybe I created this window before it existed… Does that make me a Genie? No need to wish… No need to hope… We just create!

 

Playing to Win

In Daily Inspiration on February 27, 2014 at 2:20 am

I must be out my mind they said…  As John Hope’s voice stimulates the most creative part of this brain.. Yea give me a second to unwind as I vibe toJun E opoly these drums.. Hope… Hope… My mother told me to hope for the best.. So since I’m hard headed I created it instead. When best wasn’t good enough, I threw it up and opted for Greatest… Speaking things into existence and having fun molding my world like clay.. Living, looking back and making the dots connect in that order. BINGO! And I WIN.. Rolling the dice and passing  GO everyday collecting it all. Oh my board doesn’t have a go to jail square.. lol.. I thought you knew I created this game to WIN…

Coming Undone…

“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!”
