Good Or Bad

Good or Bad? It’s all in your head.
I have had a tough time convincing some guys that morality cannot exist in a world where we came to exist without forethought, purpose or design. That is, we exist by sheer accident. We exist as accidents of nature. 
Fortunately, the renowned English Poet and Playwright who died in the early 17th Century puts the point I’ve been trying to make to so-called graduates in the 21st Century as pointedly as possible. His name was Williams Shakespeare.
Shakespeare captures his argument succinctly (in his work “Hamlet”) thus: 
“There is nothing either good or bad, but thinking makes it so.”
In other words, morality (goodness and/or badness) doesn’t really exist in an objective manner. It’s all in your head! Now, let’s bring this moral thinking into real life situations.
That your mother or sister was raped is not really bad. It’s all in your head.
That your niece or nephew was killed in cold blooded murder is nothing bad. It’s all in your head.
That you were waylaid and robbed at gunpoint is not a bad thing. It’s all in your head.
That the 2 year old was defiled is not really bad. It’s all in your head.
That you had cancer and later AIDS is not bad. It’s all in your head.
That you had to bury your son/daughter is nothing bad. It’s all in your head. Etc.
Was Shakespeare right? Of course NOT! Perhaps it’s all in my head. Lol.
Think of anything we consider to be evil or bad today, it’s not really so. It’s only so in your head. In other words, your thinking is the problem. Your head is wrongly analyzing the situation. 
My Point.

This is what everything comes down to in a world without God. Morality is reduced to brain activity. And why not? If humans are nothing but bags of biochemicals with feelings and thoughts being controlled by brain cells, then how can we truly know that anything is wrong or right. It’s all brain activity. 
It’s either this (aforementioned scenarios) is the case or Morality is founded and grounded in a Transcendental Standard which allows us to know for certain that some things are OBJECTIVELY right while others are OBJECTIVELY wrong. Murder, rape, robbery, pedophilia etc. are all OBJECTIVELY wrong because humans irrespective of territory, tribe and tongue see them for what they are. They are NOT wrong because my “thinking” says so. They are objectively wrong WHETHER MY BRAIN AGREES OR NOT.
This is my argument for grounding Objective Moral Values and Duties in God. 
Williams Shakespeare said what he said perhaps because, according to one Philosopher Collins McGinn, Shakespeare’s moral thinking was “entirely secular”. Frankly speaking, if your worldview on morality is “entirely secular” like Shakespeare’s, you have no choice but to think that ‘good’ and ‘bad’ are creations or illusions of thinking. It’s the reductio ad absurdum of secular thinking. 
But if your worldview accepts that there is a Supreme Universal Moral Law Giver, then you’d expect certain morals to be objective. That is, COMMON TO ALL. Not relative. And this is exactly what we see in the world. 
Once again, biblical Christianity makes sense of reality as it touches on morality. 
It’s not in your head. It is objectively bad.
Good morning and remain blessed.


A poem

Published September 29, 2015 by lionessallison

Let me write one on love I thought I know nothing of love , though I court 

Wondering what to think of me ? Don’t waste your thoughts 

Don’t know what to make of myself , especially when I’m in love
I lose myself to it, all that I am 

My hands are socked in broken glass laced with snow

I can smell the blood , it fucking hurts my soul

I know I’m slow
I think I’m learning, but it feels the same 

Every page I turn , no matter what angle I turn it , is the same 

It has a fame 

Someday I hope it’s tamed 
Yet again I couldn’t explain it

It’s like fire burning from my heart out to the surface of my skin

I want to scream 

But when I hold it in , it’s all too sweet 
…. I could go on , but I’m sure you get it

…. My idea of love is fucked up , I’m just Kidding 

I’ve missed it

For A Reason

Published October 13, 2013 by lionessallison

“Story Is Fictional”

I woke up one morning, forgot to say my prayer , saw broken toys by my sisters bed, picked them up and ran out for a photo shoot I had.

My Sister woke up said prayers for the family, made some breakfast and head to school.

My dad who had already left in search for work so early was robbed off his every penny, he had to walk home, which took him hours! He was very tired and very hungry, but luckily my sister had made breakfast which had leftovers.

Finishing my shoot, I rush to a bus stop to catch a bus because I had to rush home to help my sister enter for jamb which closes today, but then I missed my bus and had to wait, when I finally got a bus it was so late and I was so fucking pissed . But on my way I saw the exact BRT bus I missed in a terrible accident, and it occurred to me I didn’t pray before leaving the house! OMG!!! But God spared my life, my sister already prayed for me.

When I got home, I saw my sister and dad laughing with our neighbours kids who had brought their toys again to play, I asked her if she was mad at me I didn’t get home in time and explained myself, but fortunately my dad was home earlier than expected so he helped her and she didn’t had to wait a whole year for her exams.

I then realised my neighbours kids were here and then I ranted about them leaving broken toys on the floor of my room as my sister could’ve mistakenly stepped on them and injured her foot this morning which would’ve probably ruined her day.

For A Reason.

There’s a reason you bought cooking oil from that igbo woman in the market today, there were 10 other sellers, there’s a reason you took out the TV plug after everyone left the house, there’s a reason you bumped into someone and spilled your coffee on their very nice sparkling white shirt that would be too embarrassing for them to wear unless they go home to change, buy one or your help them somehow.

There’s a reason for everything, very few times, the reason is your own doing, and most times, its just how the universe works, whatever you do, affects a million others, if you wake up this morning, its not just because you’re healthy and well, but also so others could be affected by you.

If you won a lottery today, its not so you could just be rich, you might come across a charity project that needs your help.

If you had an unnecessary fight with a stranger, it was probably because the person had to get to where they were going late or else their journey would be pointless.

Its easier for us to live life like its just normal, but that’s what norm people do, just live. Our lives are connected, just look around you, its not so difficult to see.

Live your life, like you’re an angel, because that’s exactly what you are, angels don’t fall from heaven, angels are you and me.


|| Majesty || From iléktra Launches

Published June 28, 2013 by lionessallison

When it comes to fashion so many can easily call themselves a designer without the proper execution on a fashion couture piece. 

Majesty at first sight makes one breathe in and out, taking the amazing construction and use of delicate fabrics into the system right before you say “wow”. 

The collection has close connection to words like classy, angelic, modern and more. The collection “Majesty” has stamped it’s rightful place in the world of fashion. When you look at the beautifully draped collection you can tell so much work has been put in. The silhouette of the dresses are feminine therefor it appreciates and celebrates the female features like the bust, hips and so on. 

The natural waist line is beautifully paid attention to making it a couture piece for even famous goddess of the Roman Empire.  The fabric once again was obviously paid attention to and it was well researched before the construction of the garment which the fashion world appreciates!. The  colors used in the majesty collection are so beautiful , rich and heavenly it definitely meets the season that’s being launched in which is spring/summer. The hem lines were finished properly and professionally and also the cuts are proof the designer used her patterns correctly to produce the perfect deep cut for a classy cleavage display. 

Any woman of today that wants to be the belle of the ball, the Cinderella that enters with an entrance, the beyonce that wows the red carpet and so on needs to come in contact with this collection because this is nothing but fashion as its best!.

REVENGE SEX ; How To Know You’re Having It

Published October 1, 2012 by lionessallison

The definition of “revenge” is the opportunity to gain satisfaction through retaliation. And in some cases, we seek our revenge in bed.

While revenge sex might not feel like a way of taking the moral high road, this act, both emotionally charged and carnally fueled, the impulse to have it is thoroughly human. Sometimes you may be having it without even realizing you are. (Was Emily Thorne in a sexual relationship with Daniel Grayson because she loved him? Or was it all part of her plan for retribution, the sex included?)
So how do you know you’re having revenge sex?

I’ve conducted a very non-scientific study, interviewing a few New York City professionals about what constitutes revenge sex, why we indulge in it, and how to identify when your latest tryst is in all or in part about seeking payback.
You’re trying to remind a former flame what he or she is missing. You’ve parted ways with your significant other, but, as is often the case, unresolved issues about the relationship are eating you up. Your friends don’t want to hear about it any more (“Come on, you’re broken up!”), and seeing a shrink is not in your budget. So, you get this fabulous idea to seduce your ex and give him or her a taste of the past.

Your intent is to punish your ex and emerge from the experience in a position of power. And we all know what an aphrodisiac power can be. But as the Black Keys say, a broken heart is blind. Revenge sex will not resolve your issues with your ex, it will only enmesh you with the person all over again. “When going through a break-up, sometimes you just have to let go of the questions: why did this happen? You just have to accept it’s over and move on,” said Amelia, an advertising exec. “Physical distance from the person is pretty crucial — you really want to keep [that]. Sex will only entangle you with [the person] again, and make it that much harder to move on.”

You’re having it to avoid your sadness. My friend Brian, a physical trainer, told me that his ex sent him a text message about how great her new boyfriend was: what a cool job he had, how much money he made, how much they clicked. “She even had the gaul to say they were having great sex.” I told Brian his ex was pretty messed up, and not only that, the text was rather cruel and immature. “Yeah,” he said. “I cried for a week and then I put all my energy into giving the girl I’m seeing multiple orgasms.” Although I’m happy for Brian’s new girl (she may be a rebound, but at least she’s having a good time), I’m more concerned about Brian. By not addressing his sadness, he’s making it harder for himself to move on and see his ex for who she really might be. And although he’s giving his new girl lots (and lots) of physical pleasure, he’s using her to validate the inadequacies his ex’s text tapped into (which by the way elongates the circle as the new girl will get hurt and God help if she doesn’t react the same) . His revenge sex is a waste of his time; he should be making himself feel good and reminding himself what an awesome guy he is.

You’re having it to express your anger. In certain situations, instead of telling someone you’re angry with them, it’s tempting to hurt them emotionally by exploiting their sexual attraction to you. Let’s say there’s a person you know has a crush on you but has also wronged you in some way. The truth is, sometimes people do mean or insensitive things to the people they’re attracted to. (Remember the playground? Sadly, dating can be painfully similar.) Rather than informing the person straight up that he or she has hurt your feelings, you might feel the urge to exact revenge by sleeping with him or her, giving the brief impression that you feel the attraction, too, then walking away. “What a mistake,” reflects Tara, a publicist who took this tack. “I felt so bad during it, and now I feel like I messed up something that could have been a relationship down the line. The whole time we were doing it, I just kept thinking how mad I was at him for being such a jerk to me. It was a total turn-off. And now he thinks I’m bad in bed.”

Someone cheated on you, so you pay that experience forward. Eddie, who came home to find his longterm girlfriend in bed with another man, was so devastated that after he ended his relationship, all he wanted to do was have sex with someone else’s girlfriend. “I knew it was wrong, but by seeking out an affair, I was no longer the victim.” In reality, the two situations are completely disconnected, and Eddie’s affair couldn’t change the fact that he was cheated on. “Of course the affair I had ended terribly. On top of that, I was guilt-ridden about inflicting pain on some guy because I knew exactly how that felt.” Feeling wronged can be traumatic, there’s no denying that. But living through the emotions rather than trying to turn the tables is a faster way to heal.

You feel used, so you use someone else. “I went through a brutal breakup where I was convinced I’d literally been dumped like trash,” says Genevieve, a fashion trendcaster. “I felt run over. There was a point when I couldn’t cry any more. I was numb. Then there was this boy, and I mean boy, because he was ten years younger than me. He was actually begging to come home with me. So I did it hoping that sleeping with him would snap me out of my coma.” Genevieve’s revenge sex was her reaction to the emotional beating she took during her break-up. “I used this boy,” Genevieve continues, “to get back at the men who hurt me. I was actually was thinking in the back of my head about how I was literally using him — I’ll go as far to say that I belittled him. I wasn’t entirely sure what I was doing, but for two days after, I was euphoric.” That’s the thing about revenge sex. Even when it’s the wrong thing to do, it doesn’t always feel like it; it can also make you feel like you’re floating above all the toxicity that you’ve been experiencing in your life. Just know that eventually, you come down.

And while revenge sex never really works for me, though I doubt I’ve ever been in one, I just take the anger out on myself, my work (positively) and ofcause any unfortunate guy that comes along is treated very rashly.
