I understand that what keeps most of us from truly LIVING is our innate fear of death. The soul, which is the true energy that keeps us alive, was never an earthly substance to begin with. Therefore, when it is time for it to exit our bodies, it goes back to its ethereal essence. The body, which originates from the elements within the earth, will never experience what we call death. Over 70% of the body is water, so the majority of our existence is liquid, and when our soul departs from us, our water essence returns back into the earth which takes it to the oceans then to the clouds then back to the earth to be consumed by other life forms whether it be plants, insects, or animals. The same water that exists within you today is the same water that was on this planet millions of years ago; no new water enters our planet from outer space. The flesh part of us will decompose and give life to the earth, maybe corn, maybe flowers, maybe grass, but the body gives life to new forms. So, once you can truly overstand that what we have been taught to be death is not as we perceive it to be, then we can finally shed our fears that paralyze us from actualize what we really want to be in life. After that, you have no other option but to LIVE.

My name is Halim Flowers and I am an author, poet, blogger(CriminalU.co), and at-risk youth advocate. I have been incarcerated for 18 years, since I was 16 years of age for aiding and abetting a felony murder in a case where I was not the shooter and the person charged as the gunman had his case dismissed and was never tried for this offense. I know it sounds crazy but it is my destiny for now and I embrace. My passion in life is learning and helping to enlighten and inspire others, especially helping to develop the character and lives of young men. I was featured in an Emmy award winning documentary about my experiences as a child at the adult D.C. Jail titled "Thug Life In DC"(See Thug Life In DC at YouTube) and I have authored nine books in the genres of self-help, prisoner reform, juvenile justice, memoir, and poetry(See Halim Flowers at Amazon.com). I very contrite for my past criminal offenses and seriously committed to helping our youth to understand "Victim's Impact" and breaking the "school-to-prison pipeline".
