Analyzing Robert Johnson (May 8, 1911 – August 16, 1938) : Is Your Soul For Sell? ***messymandella***

Excerpt From Stephen Davis “Hammer of the Gods.”

“In the delta of the Mississippi River, where Robert Johnson was born, they said that if an aspiring bluesmen waited by the side of a deserted crossroads in the dark of a moonless night, then the Devil himself might come and tune his guitar, sealing a pact for the bluesmen’s soul and guaranteeing a lifetime of easy money, women, and fame. They said that Robert Johnson must have waited by the crossroads and gotten his guitar fine-tuned.

Robert Johnson was a Mississippi blues singer and songwriter, who according to legend, sold his soul to Satan “at the crossroads” in exchange for his remarkable talent on the guitar.


 
Born and raised in Mississippi, Robert Johnson started playing blues guitar in the late 1920s. His wife and child died in childbirth around 1930 and he is said to have devoted himself to the guitar. Part of the crossroads story comes from a report that he dropped out of sight for a while in the early 1930s and returned a much-improved guitarist.

In 1936-37 he recorded at least 29 songs in Texas (San Antonio and Dallas), then returned to Mississippi to play and sing in clubs and bars. His mysterious death at the age of 27 added to the legend: He died in 1938, falling ill after playing a party and dying four days later.

At the stroke of midnight, he walked down to the windswept crossroads at the junction of Highways 61 and 49 in Clarksdale, Mississippi. Reciting an ancient incantation, he called upon the Devil to make his deal. In exchange for Johnson’s immortal soul, the devil tuned his guitar, thereby giving him the abilities which he so desired. From then on, the young bluesman played his instrument with an unearthly style, his fingers dancing over the strings. His voice moaned and wailed, expressing the deepest sorrows of a condemned sinner.

Whatever the reason, Johnson died at the young age of twenty-seven (The 27 Club with members Jim Morrison, and Janis Joplin)  Down in the Delta Blues music that has influenced guitar players like Muddy Waters, and his songs have been covered by several rock stars, including Eric Clapton and The Rolling Stones.
 In 1986 Robert Johnson was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. His songs include “Crossroad Blues,” “Me and the Devil Blues” and “Terraplane Blues.”

Because of the historical significance of “Cross Road Blues,” it was inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame in 1998.

Did Robert Johnson make a pact with the Devil?

 

Historians claimed that Robert could not play but a few chords if any, on the guitar until he came back from the Cross Roads.

End Mental And Physical Abuse***messymandella***

 

One minute fine, next unprovoked arguments, flirting in front of you, yes, all of these things are mental abuse.

That smile will light you up, then unexplained insults are thrown at you and calculated evil are used to break you down.

It is not your fault, it is the abuser reversing the blame.

They rope you in to build you up and then again to tear you down.

Find a friend or partner that will appreciate your positive qualities.

Real men don’t want to hurt you, they strive to make you strong.

Never apologize because they cheated.

They will reverse their behavior on you.

Again, mental abuse…

You have to speak up.You should never be treated like a dog, when you were not wrong.

An Emotional abusive person will never apologize.

In fact they will flirt with more people and get an attitude with you.

This is a game for them and there ego.

People do not disrespect loyalty, if it is real.

Pathetic people will never apologize.

No one should wonder if he is going to flirt in front of you or embarrass you today?

Yes, if they are purposely hurting you that is abuse. Your needs and love will be ridiculed to belittle you.

This is a treacherous but manipulative way to destroy you for no reason,but to give them power. The emotional abused will eventually go out of their way to please the abuser, even if they have not done anything wrong.

They have to hurt you…

Find someone that has respect, all the time. No one needs negativity.

***messymandella*** Want*s You To Forgive Their Dumb Butt!

 

Are you responsible for someone else’s downfall?

Are you hiding  behind guilt by pretending everything is fine, when you are deeply concerned about your well-being and Karma?

You can grow taller, but that does not make you an adult.

Your actions determine your age and overall maturity.

 

When are we able to walk among the evil, we can get sucked in to ignorance.

Your demeanor can suddenly change, and your appearance and mannerisms will soon shift downward.

Hard living will eventually catch up to you, physically and mentally.

Have you ever noticed a man with muscles, and handsome features lose the muscle density and looks diminish?

If you ever been in the same room with someone who you look at and say to yourself, “What happened to her, she used to be so pretty?”

  The light of honesty is dimming in their eyes, because they’re becoming a victim of their own circumstances.

They betrayed you, but forgive them because they are on the run.

They have created  survival off of hatred and tools of the ego, and created their own paranoia, but  you must forgive them.

They finally may have taken their selfish actions a little too far, and now it just got too real…

Forgive and live, they are running from their own Karma, and would rather die than apologize or admit they were responsible for ANY of the current events taking place in their life.

In this journey of life, we never know if today will be our last day. 

You get what you  give, and sleep peacefully, knowing this set back was a minor downfall.

You deserve the peace that calmness and righteousness allows, when you treat others with love and respect. People can make fun of your lifestyle, but who cares?

You sleep like a baby at night but the unforgiven  are always looking over their shoulders, like a dummy.

Forgive their dumbness. 

I do believe in this life “God takes care of babies, and fools.”

You have to ask which class do you fall under?

Leave the gutter and swamp to the wildlife, but you  must forgive  to live!

If you ever been in the same room with someone who you look at and say to yourself, “What happened to her, she used to be gorgeous?”

Once again, hard living and Karma will eventually kill you and your overall swagger.

Your ego and quest for selfishness may manipulate some but it will only come back to destroy you in the end. 

You have to forgive the person that stepped on your trust and loyalty.

Were you the reason someone may have died trying to protect you?

Were you just horrendously vicious  to people for your own selfish needs?

You are still alive and you can still forgive yourself.

Wake up from the nightmare into a new life, and forgive them.

I refuse to give power to something out of my control and let it weigh me  down forever.

Travel down that road of regret and that bridge will keep getting wider, and your life will just be bitter.

That is not the way to live, forgive and live.

Cross over that river, to find happiness and realistic and positive energy,  that is not supplemented by tools of the evil.

Book Of Wisdom-& World Of Wisdom ***messymandella***I Am Not A Communist!

“Whoever wants to know a thing has no way of doing so except by coming into contact with it, that is, by living (practicing) in its environment. … If you want knowledge, you must take part in the practice of changing reality. If you want to know the taste of a pear, you must change the pear by eating it yourself…. If you want to know the theory and methods of revolution, you must take part in revolution. All genuine knowledge originates in direct experience.”

“Where do correct ideas come from? Do they drop from the skies? No. Are they innate in the mind? No. They come from social practice and from it alone. They come from three kinds of social practice: the struggle for production, the class struggle and scientific experiment.”

“The oppressed peoples and nations must not pin their hopes for liberation on the “sensibleness” of imperialism and its lackeys. They will only triumph by strengthening their unity and persevering in their struggle.”

“[Our purpose is] to ensure that literature and art fit well into the whole revolutionary machine as a component part, that they operate as powerful weapons for uniting and educating the people and for attacking and destroying the enemy, and that they help the people fight the enemy with one heart and one mind.”


“Our duty is to hold ourselves responsible to the people. Every word, every act and every policy must conform to the people’s interests, and if mistakes occur, they must be corrected – that is what being responsible to the people means.”
