My wish for Canadians is that the people may becone one, because a sgared dream will help to transform and sustain the world peacefullly

Jack Michael Dubem in Owerri Imo Rivers

Life to be worth living requires wisdom and understanding as a worthy one whom is seen like a common entity by the charlatans, empowered by demonic instincts to devour another. This instigated evil abounding in life, causing man to stray from the balance of creation, losing his believe on the divine ordainment of the creator; there is life, there is demand and there are expectations from what life demands. Man in life was made a worthy man higher than other creatures; the only specie that laughs and cries to wipe, the only animal that are struck with the different of what life supposed to be and what result it should yield for any action. Other powerful and lesser spirit creatures, Angels and demons respectively are also in connection to life making man the balance of creation. Man is between the weaker and the stronger. When man gets weaker, he is doomed forever, and when man gets more powerful, he is destroyed. So man must be efficient to be saved and successful in the balance of creation. Wisdom is the connection between the existences of creation, it makes you to understand and render positive supportive services to humanity, through the knowledge derived from experiences of trial to connect between the physical, spiritual and mental realm of life, in other to survive in reality. But indeed human activities are pushing the earth beyond its natural cycles, forgetting that thousands of generation have come and gone in years, yet the earth has remained a great wonderful habitat to accommodate all generations. The world is a change and every day we affect it positively in our actions to have a real legacy. Many are guided rightly, while many wrongly to determine their end, while those who choose wrong meet their doom at result. Every happening is either to bless or punish your day according to Karma.
