Jun E Caniel’s Mission

Who is Jun E Caniel ?
So they give us these images… They give us history, religion, a dream, education, a good life 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 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?

Back to the start… Like getting thrown in a ocean at 4… Now I dive into my soul cause it so deep.. Deeper than any swimming pool that exist in this world… Deeper than any body of water. I swim trying to find all the pieces of gold lined within. Swimming to find all the humor and wit left from the soul of those before.. This swim is so good! So good I don’t want to come up to breathe your air.. So abundant I’m amazed that I find several new treasures each day… What a swim.. I don’t even get wrinkled fingers on this swim… I think you should try it…
I’m not sure why you would want to be crammed into all these boxes when outside the boxes it looks like Paradise… It’s hard to see the beauty through the 3×5 square they cut you… Imagine that. Imagine being locked inside a box with a blue feeding tube… Imagine being programmed just like a computer… Imagine being treated like a dog… Imagine being given choices and your choices from that make you feel free… hmmm.. Imagine. No one should live like this, huh? Then look in the mirror… What will you do about it? I got a story to tell…
So I closed my eyes and dreamed of Paradise till I became it. Hi! I’m Paradise… Perfect because of all my imperfections.. Smiling because you have no idea the pain it took to evoke this much joy. Still skipping because I’m used to hurdles… I should have run track…But on a different track. This track is for the people who die because lack of food. This track is for the little black boy who was told he would never be shit in a world… This track is for the little girl who thinks she has to be second class. This track is for kids with no arms, no feet, one ear, no sight, no sound… This track…. This music must play and it’s not a damn thing you can do about it! Yea! Paradise… It’s for the dreamers with anger problems… The dreamers who speak a different language than the rest.. The dreamers who were too brown to make a dent in this motherfucker! I ain’t mad lol… Paradise….
I promise… I made a few promises in my life… A few promises to a few people… Okay maybe a couple to the universe.. There comes a point in everyone’s life when they’re faced with tough decisions… There comes a time when we awaken from all of the death around us. Our eyes begin to hurt because we never used them up until this point… You ever play the game? You know the game of life, where you know you’re so much further ahead in thought than others but you dumb it down to keep their company? In life we only dumb ourselves down. We never really fool anyone but ourselves. I realize now that living with a passion and purpose cannot and will not coexist with people who live for things. In the past I found myself trying to keep superficial, empty people around. In the end, they eventually go their way and leave you with your hearty bag of substance. I urge you to stand!
Stand for who you are! Stand for what you truly believe and never apologize! Playing small for that job or those people we try to impress pays very little. Most buy things they cant afford, things they don’t need, to impress people they don’t like. When you take a stand, it gives you authenticity, power, and clarity. You find your place in the universe, and you have the capacity to move the world… I’m standing for the conscious, beautiful, passionate, and purposeful person I am. I stand for the lifestyle of leaving a legacy that will improve humanity… See you at the top!
Dear young girl rising
Don’t be afraid! You don’t need the permission of any one else but yourself.. It’s within you.. your greatness and in case you think you’re alone, look up! Hatshepsut, Nefertiti, Sammuramat, Cleopatra, Catherine de Medici, Elizabeth I, Mbande Nzinga, and Tiye just to name a few are waiting to see your next move… You’re not alone. From the beginning of time your kind has lead. You are the best leaders a world can ask for.
But I know the media shows you no love… They show the boxes that are “appropriate” for you under their jurisdiction.. lol Their Jurisdiction only exists to those who subscribe to it. But I’m here to tell you there is no box big enough to contain you.. I know I’m asking you to be an example and not settle for a title or enough comfort to shut you up.. I don’t want you to be like those other women who have been educated to be tamed! Be educated to free yourself and all the others around you…
You are created for something very specific and enormous… If you don’t believe it, call on Indira Gandhi, Margaret Thatcher, Golda Meir, Tzu-hsi, Joan of Arc, and Amina…. It might be a dream of mine but I see girls rising.. Rise up, young lady and be great… Be alive and show that light! Show that you cannot be comprehended without your permission… The world is your playground and the universe yours to create greatness. Leave your stench of greatness all throughout the world.. Girls rising, like heat… Like eagles… Like… Rise girl rise… it’s time!

Just a weird kid wanting a different life.. Wanted to laugh, play and dance in the rain… I enjoyed playing with imaginary friends and creating bubble bath from soap… I sat at that table and was a bus driver… The best damn bus driver on the island. I sat in that living room and became a college and Olympic basketball player. But they told me I day dream too much. I never could quite understand their language, so they said that I don’t listen… After achieving certain feats, my success was turned against me… So now I go from being labeled as the little boy who day dreams to the anti social adult. However still these eyes won’t go past six… You know the age where everything is new and not taken for granted. You know the age where you get excited about a piece of candy, or just going outside and having a conversation with a friend…
Life is an interesting rascal… I must admit I don’t know about much going on outside of leaving our Jun E Legacy.. I remember when I had alot of associates and family around, I got nothing done. I had plenty of people to talk to.. Plenty of gossip to hear… Be very cognizant of who you hang out with. Choose your friends wisely. They’re influence on you is unavoidable. These days I interact with maybe two people on a daily basis, outside of our awesome Jun E Customers… Although it seems lonely we have managed to quietly expand business in several countries.. We have managed to grow businesses in several different sectors.. We have managed to give a helping hand in combating poverty in the US and abroad, thus getting closer to our life long goals of improving humanity and ending poverty. We have managed to find our greatness within, and spread it throughout the world. We have managed to be self sufficient and creating the life we want. These days we know ourselves… We produce our own thoughts.. Hmmm.. These days we find ourselves talking to legends of the past and reading books to supplement real people… These days we wake up with so much purpose and work with a vigor unknown to me in the past.. These days I paint the walls of the future in my brain… Then see them manifest right before our eyes.. These days life moves fast but appears to be in slow motion….. I wish I can explain this peace, excitement, confidence and joy within.. I wish I can give this feeling to every boy and girl with a dream who are told to be realistic…. But wait… We will! See you at the top!
