AVE VIRGO MARIA (a poem by Sunsampaul Egwu)

Ave Virgo Maria,
gratia plena, dominus tecum.
Benedicta tu in mulieribus,
et benedictus fructus
ventris tui, Iesus.

Sancta Virgo Maria,
Mater Dei, ora pro nobis
peccatoribus, nunc
et in hora mortris nostrae, ut videm.
Salve Regina,
Mater misericordiae,
Vita, dulcedo, et spes nostra, salve.
Ad te clamamus exsules filii Havae.
Ad te Suspiramus, gementes
et flentes in hac lacrimarum valle.
Eia ergo, Advocata nostra,
illos tuos misericordes oculos ad nos converte.
Et Iesum, benedictum fructum ventris tui,
nobis post hoc exsilium ostende.
O clemens, o pia, o dulcius Virgo Maria.
NB: This poem was written in Roman Catholic Latin R.C.L, from Vatican II system, during the adminstration of Pope John Paul II in Vatican City, Rome, Italy.

 Good evening Dears. I am blessed to be amongst you all.
As you have read from the memoir I am a lover of nature. I believe if we take a closer look at nature the world would be a better place.I encourage each of us to take a keen look at one of the smallest and stubborn insect
Facts about the ant
1⃣ The ant is the most successful insect.
Some information we should all know is the Insects are the most successful organisms on earth. They are found in all conditions of earthly life. Their bodies adapt in the most beautiful way to their environment.Of all the insects the ant takes the lead.
2⃣The ant carries objects as large as 5 times its weight.
This is not only because of its cuticle skeleton but mainly because of its NEVER GIVE UP ATTITUDE. The ant never backs down
3⃣The ant has no leader yet it does every work diligently.
The queen ants carry out reproduction for three years, The worker ant makes sure all ants are well fed,they search for food with accuracy. In addition they grow GARDENS
Did u know... Ants do farming?? Ants also build the Majestic ANT hill.Compare their ANT hill to their small size.
4⃣ The ant works in a team...It works as a family.
When an ant finds makes sure the whole ant land knows.Its never selfish. It makes sure it leaves paths for the others to find its treasure. It does not keep treasure for itself
5⃣ The ants saves for the worst
In dry season it saves for the wet season.It makes sure there is enough to go through that period

Finally friends dont leave this wisdom here. Don't be the selfish greedy grasshopper.
Well then I bid everyone fair well. I have extra Lectures on the ant, lion, and the eagle. Contact me via comment in  if you're interested. Thank you once again!


 My focus is on the mind. Although a very vast topic, but I'd just narrow it down to us as writers.
Every human on earth has been blessed with a very important asset.
The MIND is a very important tool for creation or destruction.
I'd just ask a short question. Who can define the word 'Mind'?
*⃣  Answer:
To me I don't think mind can be define, buts its our ability to think and pass judgment on things*⃣
OK .you tried.
In Psychology, the mind is that place where conscious or unconscious mental activities are processed before action.
According to Webster's Dictionary, the mind is the element, part, substance, or process that reasons, thinks, feels, wills, perceives, judges, etc. All of these make up the human mind.
So, as writers, and as humans, we are to make good use of our minds.
I call the mind a workshop; not just any workshop, but a highly creative one. It expands to as far as you want it to. Therefore, this workshop, although small, cannot be limited.
In the mind, you are
Nest your ideas
Dominate boundaries.
These four can move your works to another level.
The mind is one of the best or worst places in the human body. Anybody who knows how to take charge of their minds can virtually do anything.
I saw a 3D cartoon today, and it dawned on me that the major character (Barbie) actually sees herself in her mind accomplishing some difficult task, and she reproduces it in the physical, thereby winning in the process.
The mind is a very sacred place, and should either be well taken care of, or allow it to be dormant and unproductive.
In the Bible, it is stated that we should renew our minds constantly. Clear out all the junk in that bunk, and begin to make it serve you well as a writer.
No writer can achieve much with a messed up mind.
The junks in the bunk could be problems surrounding you, but you can use your creative mind to reproduce a beautiful story or poem with these challenges, because at that point, all the attributes of the five senses are invoked.
Our topic of focus THE MIND; the writer's creative workshop will be dealing on how we can as writer make proper use of the unique section of our brain.
Work your brain...!
Creativity is first conceived in the mind. You can create scenes, actions, words, build, destroy, etc all in this chamber.
There is virtually no one either in the Arts or Sciences that does not have something from their. In fact, every imagine, but many are afraid to create.
As a thespian, I was taught to improvise. You can't improvise if your mind is not allowed to stretch.
Provisation can be done anywhere, either in the workshop or anywhere, thus you stand to be limitless in every aspect of your creative exercise. Nothing stops you.
Writers are radical creators. They allow their imaginations to run wild, and then go ahead to accomplish a task.
I said, in the mind, you are;
Nesting your ideas
Dominating boundaries.
If you are not motivated, you cannot do your research to write intelligently, and if you don't nest your creative ideas  you cannot dominate boundaries...
Let's move on. Now, I noticed that there are actually ways to task your mind...
Let's consider these rules
1⃣  Give yourself certain periods of alone time to think through your thoughts. Eliminate the bad thought by not dwelling on them. Focus on the beneficial ones.
*Think through your thoughts. Some thoughts are not capable of bringing to you positive creative results in your writing.
THE MIND; the writer's creative workshop.
2⃣  Begin to explore areas in your mind that you can start creating something. For example, you have an idea about a story you want to write, focus on that only. Totally immerse yourself in that moment. This is the reason why most writers like their 'alone moments'.
Alone moments are very precious to any writer. Ask them, and you'll get all kinds of weird answers. For me, when I want to writer, and I am in the midst of people, I implore the use of 'selective hearing'. I create a padded wall in my mind, and people's voices begin to fade out, that way, I am drawn into my alone moment, then I begin to scribble.
The mind cannot be limited!
3⃣  Learn something new everyday. You can learn from:
*Your environment: the happenings around, discussions among people
*Reading books: you need someone's work to task your mind to wander into the scenario, thereby engaging all your five senses. In fact, as a writer, if you haven't gotten to the point where you see, feel, touch, taste, and hear in your works, then you haven't allowed your mind to take proper position of its power.
4⃣  Produce great ideas. In the workshop of your mind, you are not allowed to shut out ideas creeping towards recognition. It in fact is your time to grasp onto those ideas. Make them come alive. Sieve through.
You do this by:
*Avoiding limitations. Limitations are a killer of the creative mind.
*Expand your imagination. Even Moses was told to stretch his vision when God spoke to him. He looked (in his mind) as far as he could see. Expand your mind when you have a photograph on an artwork before you. Try to imagine what the picture is all about. See what others can't see. If possible try to write something from what you saw in the work of art, and you'll be amazed at what will surface. I try that a lot. Art works most times influence my imagination (mind).
You can also expand your mind by merely listening to someone talk. It could be that in that little time, you'd grasp a picture, words or phrases that can spark off something. You can begin to create in your mind whilst the person is still yapping away
5⃣  Stay away from creativity door shutters. These people are:
Those who think you are not creative enough. Stick around them though, but learn to discern when they are being cynics or critiques. If an amateur young writer faces either, he may not be able to handle it. He might feel discouraged in the process.
Learn to create ideas in your mind, then eliminate what you do not need for your workshop to be fully equipped and ready for the writing task.
You can't write with a crowded mind. Do a thorough spring clean...
6⃣  Widen your perspective. Yes, do this always. Carve out new paths, thereby carving a niche for yourself. You must not relapse solely into someone else's style. Define you. Work your mind. Writing style and all that. Define your category/genre(s). This will boost your confidence. Avoid demeaning acts in you mind.
When I say demeaning acts, I mean actions that will not help you progress in your writing lifestyle. Not everyone can take note of this.
My next point is most important to me as well as other writers...
7⃣  Do not be afraid to share your creative 'Aha! Eureka!' Moments with your band of writing clique. It will help you help them too. They too will begin to use their minds as you speak to them. At that point, ideas begin to connect. I call it a collective uniformity of thoughts/ideas. Everyone listening to one, and several minds drawing strength. This is in fact a great exercise for the writer's mind.
Eureka means Voila in French, it also means 'Finally!' Or 'This is it!' Or that moment when you get something right, and you exclaim in sheer excitement. It is that moment when the light bulb comes on
Many writers are protective of what they have inside
That's why many don't share
Truth is, no writer writes alone
8⃣  Attend creative writing workshops to help your own creative writing workshop to function properly. The more you do this, the more you become better at what you do. Iron sharpens another iron, but if an iron tries to sharpen a wood, you know the result...
When I say that, it doesn't mean the times they go to their writing study, for that alone time
All I am simply saying it that they had times when they met with other writers...
Read point. 8
They usually have fellowship moments
Ok, so... Let me give the last point
My last point
9⃣ Put in great creative effort. Don't allow your mind to be dormant for any reason; even if you do not write something long, just tap on your ideas, and work on a line or two.
Imagine if an upholster wants to create/make an out of this world settee, he'd bring out a pen, paper, and his mind. He does not just get is at one sitting. He tries severally on paper before he brings it to life, using all the carpentry tools. If he can, you too can.
You need your workshop functioning so that people who read your works can be transported to many locations without boundaries.
Your mind is a place of endless creativity. ..
Nurture it!


Have you ever wondered where you may find yourself in some 2-3, maybe 5 years time? Realistically, do you see a bigger picture of you or something less?? I assume we would all say bigger but only you can tell if you're actually being honest with yourself. Great.
We all have greatness inside of us. We all are called to make a difference in the lives of others. Greatness is not just for a particular set of people. However how often do we visualize our own potential for greatness? The only difference between you and those that have achieved a measure of greatness is that they have done things that you have failed to do. What are these things then? You may ask!
1) They have gained CLARITY.
What's our perception of clarity? Anyone?   
They have been known and recognized of whom they are
Any other person's idea of clarity? 
They discovered d greatness in them and work towards it
Good In the simplest Layman term, clarity means I understand my dreams perfectly, I know what my purpose is and I am going for it. However expanded or simplified.
This is what clarity is about So CLARITY tells you what exactly you are existing for. It's the first question you must always ask yourself What is my core? What is my purpose? What is my message? What do I stand for? Everyone,  implicitly or explicitly, want their lives to stand for something. 
To have its own unique meaning So this leads you to discovering what your passion is. I would have begun by asking everyone what their passion is. This is not the simplest question. You may be amazed how you struggle to squeeze yourself into so many titles But is this really you? Are you really living your dream or someone else's? Your passion MUST be an integral part of you that cannot be taken away. It's your identification! Clarity would help you discover this. With this, you may also want to ask yourself the next question....
2) What exactly are my dreams, goals and aspirations? It's not enough to have passion. But your passion can never be ignited without GOALS The goal is the POWER HOUSE. It is the healing Magic! So I may be a writer. What exactly do I stand for as a writer? Then I may say, to become a voice for the voiceless, to motivate and to inspire.
Then what am I doing to achieve this end? Storm these questions in the silence of your thoughts, your inner self would be awakened! When you find the answers, you may want to ask yourself another question...
3) Why do you want it?
This is the VISIONAIRE's question. The "Why" will guide you towards making lifetime decisions.
Before anything, always  ask yourself not just what your dreams are but why exactly you want to achieve them. Why do you want to become a poet? Why do you want to become a public speaker?
Is it because my friends are or because I have a purpose to achieve with it If you're not sure why you want to thread that path, then chances are it's probably not for you,.
Know your onion!
If you don't stand for something, you will fall for everything When you have understood your "WHY" which is the vision towards achieving your goal, then you want to know "HOW" You can't escape the why's and the how's You can't escape the why's and the how's Do you sometimes wonder why some people are so celebrated but when you look at their capabilities, you realize that you CAN do better! But why not me? Why am I not noticed? Don't you wonder? If you don't ask yourself these "shameless" questions sometimes, well I do. You want to know why? Because If I don't compete with myself, I could never progress! All it takes to maximize your core potentials is finding answers to questions as these and acting upon the answers So example is this.
Ada and Ola are writers each on different fields. Ada runs a blog, writes all day and night, attends seminars, Joins intellectual whatsap groups, streamlines her contacts to those of purpose, but Ola is just a writer who writes when the inspiration storms. Ada wins all forms of scholarships and awards but Ola gets none. But Ola is a better writer than Ada. Why not him? Lol logically, the answer is already clear. Whilst you harness your dreams and vision, and set goals, make yourself prepared for opportunities that will come with it because they surely will come 
Many of us are what I call "Wardrobe writers". We write for our eyes only. We are even scared to show others our stuff for fear of criticism, even when we share, and the criticisms roll in, we get all feisty You are not preparing yourself for greatness because to be great, you've got to be known.
That's the
Put your abilities out there. Do things! Try try and keep trying. Watch how others are doing it, do yours! Start from little, and watch yourself storm into greatness It’s a misery for an opportunity to arrive and find you unprepared… Finally you should always ask yourself "When" Watch how important the why, how and when questions are vital And for me, there's no thinking it.
When always goes for me as "NOW" I always say to my friends, "E don already happen before e happen". This is the visionaire's mind. As long as you envision it, nothing should stop you! I saw a short but funny Facebook post from Tiencepay today that went
I find that hilarious because I could relate.
The idea is that you can't do it all now but if your mind is always on the NOW, you'd get most of it done before you know it and the chances for self-doubt and FEAR will be less It's almost psychological You can actually TIME your success strategically "(but that would be going into another topic)" basically, success is learned and mastered! We only need to decide critically When we want it and the answer to when should always be “Now”! Dreams are hard to follow but with clarity, and consistency, we can actually achieve all of them one after the other.
Last year left me with a testimony I'd always be grateful to share. When I conceived a project #ChildHero to reaching out to the less privileged, I was not sure how this will happen. I took a risk I never shared with anyone as am always weary of Negative vibes. When I threw out a call for entry for the short story contest on my blog as a part of the campaign, I wanted to do a movie in line with the story and a one-on-one with the children.
When I threw out the call for entry, I was not sure about the rest. Nothing was working. But it was all done in my head. I'd shot this film and done the street reach out but in reality, it was just me and this contest on my blog. But I kept pushing and whilst the contest was on, I was working out means upon means, getting turned down and fighting back. The rest is history now for those who made it to the funfair.
What's the point, when your mind is on the GOAL, and your when is NOW.
But trust God and trust yourself that you will achieve any end you wish towards maximizing your potential. You already heard this "What you put out to the Universe is what you get back” What's your energy status saying towards achieving your goals? And it all boils down to CLARITY.
