Self Deliverance - Pride is the Devil

Updated: Jan 3

Humility has never been my strong suit. And since I tend to stick to the things I am good at, I have never felt the need to hone that particular characteristic.

But I have a game that I play with God. It’s a self-improvement game that keeps me spiritually sharp. I was seeking God with youthful energy because being used by God is addictive once you’ve experienced it. I’m experimental in my faith, trying to find different ways and methods to chisel out more of my God-self in this plane.

The word I received from the creator was one word: Pride.

Pride is a virtue that should have never been an issue in my career, only in my walk with Christ, but alas I was born a black woman and I had a knack for coming across people who made it their mission to "humble me". My response to being bullied? Well as a former bully myself I recognized the behavior quickly and reported it to my local HR Rep. If you don't know what happens next go visit (Caged Bird HR).

I decided to start a project: build a marketing business while working on my pride. For those who bullied me into this transformation, thank you, truly. But, I couldn’t simply just turn into a puddle of walk all over me. So, I carefully dissected, almost scientifically, what being prideful v. what being confident looked like within myself. God showed me myself through the eyes of his perfection and it was difficult to look at. But only through this painful self-reflection was I able to begin the journey of uncovering my purest self. The self I was born to be before the programming and molding from the world.

There are persona qualifiers like Meyer Brigg, XX, XX, XX and also more ethereal resources like Human Design, Chakra/Essence work which have increased in popularity in the ever-progressive states. But there is a reason why. The realm that we cannot see exists, just ask the wind.

Self-deliverance isn’t a term typically tossed around boardrooms or in a corporate setting. But spiritual technology will eventually bring light to what in a lot of cultures has long been known. Pride is the Devil and if it is sitting comfortably in the offices you better believe that spirit has its remnant all over your business practices. My business is just me. The rules I make, the contradictions I ignore, the issues I sweep under the rug…it’s time we go from thinking “Day One” centered on innovation to thinking “Employee One” centered on creation, God's creation and creating optimum spaces for them to create their art. People drive business and while marketing and human resources tend to have a less powerful ear when chatting it up with a CEO (we like numbers and analytics the CFO and COO are the heavy hitting 3-some in the traditional corporate C-Suite). These positions also tend to be the most commonly seen female c-suite positions Human Resources and Marketing. I don't find that as coincidental as some might. That these voices are slightly less historically commanding as the other two.

But never the less the failures of the past: They are actually some of the most critical voices and should be seated whenever possible by a black woman. The purpose of DE&I isn't to provide opportunities to minorities to hold seats of influence. The purpose of DE&I was to get white men out of their own way in order to make the workplace work more smoothly, make the customers we serve more satisfied, make more money for everyone on board. White men and women at work are, and have been since the plantation south, a problem, a hurdle, a hinderance to a harmonious workplace and yes voices from people that Elon Musk doesn't respect will be in the room to irritate him, that's exactly where I expect them to be. That man is reacting exactly how I would expect a white man in his position to act. I don't get it so it must not matter. But its up to seers to speak up and not allow the ramblings of a singular organism disrupt the work of diversify thought, creativity & innovation. What are we innovating for? Just to innovate our way into mass layoffs? Or are we trying to be better for people? I want to be better for people. So I decided to innovate the model of my marketing agency in service of people over profit. Doing what in scientific research is completely frowned upon, assuming for lack of better terms that There's Still Cool People In the World.

We love the highlight artists whose work speaks life to the moment.
