The Power of Now Becoming Powerless.

Here at AfroMadu we take pride in preaching and discussing “The Power Of Now”, but have the ideas of thinking for today became too much? Are people just simply thinking about now and not their near future?

Our society THRIVES off the idea of  being “on-the-go”, making everything and everyone so hip to moving in a fast pace. We eat on-the-go meals and fast foods, make time commitments where we rush everywhere, have road rage because traffic  is too slow for our liking, and overall make temporary decisions for our permanent plans.


“The Power of Now” is the simple reasoning of not worrying about the past or the future but for living and loving everything in the “now”. In our society it’s pretty hard to worry about how to live now and enjoy every momnet without worrying about what needs to be done in an hour or what you plan to do for your birthday next year.

Living in the now can also level your head to what’s important and beneficial to the process of self discovery. And besides, whats soo good living in the past when you have a present to worry about????

Although this seems like a blasphemous concept, there are extremes to the Power of Now. Allowing yourself to act in a uncontrollable manner because you are living in the now, is beyond extreme and detrimental to the rest of your life. Let me explain…

This new on-going trend of  “YOLO” (You Only Live Once), has people going bonkers. There have been many crimes committed and lives ended because living in the now went too far. 

But should life really draw down to that? When you finally feel like you are comfortable with being grounded and secure in the present that people must live a life of extreme partying and crime? Do we drear away from the now because of what can potentially happen?


This Fall season, don’t let YOUR Power of Now become wasted or miscued. Live the present life that you were always supposed to live. Be comfortable in  understand and accepting that NOW is really the only thing you can have. LIVE FOR NOW! 


Today we live in an era full of people willing to change. We have a President who’s campaign was built around change, groups and organizations promoting change any and everything from what we should be allowed to do to who we should be allowed to marry. One cannot go anywhere in this country without someone willing to change their view on something. The issue with this is there are millions of people trying to change other millions and their efforts often go unsuccessful because their cause for change isn’t the right cause.


Many people want to live comfortable and changing your environment is the quickest way to do so. But people never seem to look inside, they never think to say, “Maybe I can lead by example. Maybe I can be the change I want to see instead of preaching the change I want to see.”


 This world is a world run by influence, and the best way to influence others to be what you want them to be is by you, yourself being what you want to be. If you want to promote diversity, open your mind and be more diverse. You want to see more creativity, be creative with your own thought processes. You want support, support others. Each individual has a circle of influence and many of these circles overlap. Be yourself and the image you would like to see in others and it’ll show. Change doesn’t start with a rally, change starts with you. Take a minute and see if you are the person you want to be and if you reflect the values you want to instill in others. From there you can make change, but it has to start inside.
