Jun E Tracks…

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…

Jun E boysSo 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….

Waking up…

In Uncategorized on December 10, 2013 at 5:10 pm

The first time you open your eyes… Immediately squint to block out the light, crinkling your faceJun E Caniel Awake like a 90 year old… The beautiful lines of your face listen and give in to the command. Now blocking or minimizing what we see, we slowly adjust giving way for more light…Now allowing our eyes to open even more… But are we seeing? Or just watching? Do we have vision or is this pre-recorded?… Hmmm… Just a few questions from a mischievous kid…

(Excerpt from “The Adventures of Jun E”)

 

A Stand…

In Culture, Daily Inspiration, Motivational Speaking, Thoughts on November 26, 2013 at 5:14 pm

Jay Caniel 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 Jay Caniel 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!

The Start…..

In Business, Daily Inspiration, Motivational Speaking, Thoughts on October 16, 2013 at 5:39 pm

Jun E Babies The start.. Like goo goo ga ga… Like da da or ma ma..  The start… The start like the first time you fell and realized someone was looking.  Then, you burst out in an even louder cry… The start.. The start like the pain associated with the growth of your first tooth… Damn I wonder why we now run away from pain… The start when little things made you happy.. Like your favorite toy you created… Like the happiness you create with a single smile and a room of adults sighed.  Now you walk in and smile at Jun E Day adults only to see the misery in their eyes….. I wondered what changed?  The start like when a pinky held the world of promises together…. Now promises are expected to be broken.  What changed? The start when challenges were learning the ABC song and counting to 10…  The start when people held you, praised you, and loved you for accomplishments.  Now they silently hold grudges against you for wanting and getting more.  Dam I’m happy they didn’t get mad when we walked before scheduled. The start… Back to the start.  Take me! Take me! 

Jun E Day You see, I never left the beginning so I could never end.  Each day new and fresh as the smell of the ocean I was thrown in and learned to swim. Each person another opportunity to know myself better. The start is where I’m at… Constantly crawling and walking over new endeavors like Godzilla.  This hunger often fed by the eyes of the next boy or girl that might pick this trail.  I see them. I saw them from the start…  The start.

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….

Who Knew….

In Daily Inspiration, Motivational Speaking, Thoughts on September 12, 2013 at 9:49 pm

We always wanted more… A life worth fighting for!  A life worth living and dying for!  A legacy that could never be taken from us. We started out pretty naive about this whole thing. Dreamy eyed, with milk all over our breath… Jay Caniel She said she wanted to be an artist and improve women’s lives all around the world. He simply wanted to improve humanity…

Who knew those dreams would carry us?  Who knew that the air we breathe is fueled by images projected on the walls of our minds? Who knew that kid with invisible headphones on would get a pair? Lol, I’m trotting right along with no ears to the world, a big smile on my face, and a blockbuster hit on my mind… We will continue to direct this movie behind the scenes…I can’t wait till it’s complete. Get your popcorn ready…

Wonderful

Just like it used to be.. Wonderful! That giddy feeling inside that makes you just want to smile.. That Jun E Wonderful feeling of excitement in your stomach before a big game.. That bell rings and we run aimlessly to recces… Come on you hear that bell.. Wonderful.. Eating the vegetables to get to dessert… Boy, and you thought those were rough days… Getting your homework done so you can play outside… Wonderful… A smile from a stranger that makes you break out and imitate creation… Wonderful…  Screaming your favorite songs at the top of your lungs and it actually sounds good… Wonderful…  Lol getting the note back and “yes” is checked… Wonderful… Take you back to the days of real creation… When you laid in bed and dreamed… Oh what a feeling… I call it wonderful!  Close your eyes and count to 10 and the whole world changes… The days of the 5 second rule… Food falls and you can eat it within 5 seconds.. Lol some of you had 20 secs… I’m not judging… Just wonderful..

I’m guilty ’cause I know some of you have grown out of those days, but I still live it… I can feel the love move throughout my body as the guitar strings pull and my finger hit these keys. Wonderful… There’s nothing like living in the present moment and creating the things that you want. I challenge you to live that wonderful life. I just want to spread this feeling… The feeling of living, laughing, loving and creating your legacy…. See you at the top! Wonderful!

When a Jun E Kid Grows Up…

In Daily Inspiration, Motivational Speaking, Thoughts, Uncategorized on August 27, 2013 at 6:23 pm

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 Jun E Caniel 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…

Jun E Lion I realize now it will always be something… I realize there will always be more ants than eagles,  more crabs than lions.  There will be more workers than owners… More managers than leaders. I realize now how you’re treated when you’re a revolutionary… They hate you. They band together against you ’cause they can’t stomach the thought that the same  “unstable” boy who day dreamed  and made friends with notepads will someday… Will someday… will someday …

Jun E Life Begins It’s amazing the things that flash before your eyes during a quick conversation with Death… It’s amazing who shows up to defend your position..  As he talked my brain evoked random thoughts  of Ricky, Imagine, Jun E Caniel, Legend, Nazir and the People….   Out of nowhere came Purpose, and Legacy… I must admit this was my first time seeing Death cower… He backed down and transformed into life..   I didn’t think purpose would have that effect on him.  All of a sudden phrases like  “abundance is on the other side poverty”, or “every disappointment is for a good”, or even the notion that you “fail before you succeed” became real to me. “Calm, cool, and collected” used to be a phrase, but to see this cool demeanor in effect when faced with fatality is an amazing feat…

For the first time in my life I’m living!!!  I feel every pulse, every heart beat, every thought, etc…  All we work for can be taken within a blink of an eye… Well depends on what your working for. It’s so interesting how closely related life and death are… For those of you who live in the middle… *Shrug*… Don’t expect much!

I challenge all to unleash your Lion within.. We all have greatness inside. Find your music! Play it! Play it loud without apology.. Time is your most valuable asset in life. Live it well and do something amazing. That is what we are all designed to do. For now my heart continues to beat, my mind although bruised from the windshield has gotten stronger… These hands are prepared to serve while my legs decide it will be the primary vehicle of this revolution…  We love you all! Keep Living! Jun E!

The RestSometimes being ambitious isn’t what it’s cracked up to be. You look out and see an overwhelming amount of satisfied people and you sometimes question yourself… Wondering, “Am I just weird? Why do I want to improve humanity so much? Is it that serious?” Yes, the overwhelming crowd of complacent, selfish people who are only concerned with their well- being can take a toll. These questions however don’t last long! Times like theseUnique you’re forced to look inside! It is about more richly and more completely experiencing the unique, magnificent value that is already and always within you! Life’s circumstances do not, in and of themselves, enhance or detract from the value of your life! Fulfillment is not about acquiring something that exists outside of you… So if you are a one percenter with dreams and goals beyond yourself, the next time you have a down moment remember to look inside and not at the crowd around…  It’s lonely at the top! See you there!
