The Reality of Manipulation

We can see this kind of things so many times over within the broad spectrum of the World of Celebrity – it happens regularly and unfortunately constantly as well.

The Irony here is this, we either have seen in our daily lives that someone endured this OR you have been the victim of this yourself.
You’d wonder what I might be talking about,
But then it’s so Easy it’s not even funny!

When you or your friend sees a Dress or more Regularly that Boy who might even like you.
Even between boys this is the issue,
There’s a Girl…

You, I, They’ve got first dibs AND
Then, it turns out that Whoever it was – ONLY saw you as a Friend.
Thus People get upset when they Might not, Don’t Want to see the Signs.
Not investing as much Energy into something that doesn’t even Exist…

Not to mention when Your Friends or close acquaintances do not think that You should be free to make your own choice…
It’s so IRONIC,
There May be someone willing to tell you what they believe you should do,
BUT They want the Freedom to do what they will!
You’re NOT allowed to Caution them against the Mistake you believe for them to be making…
Still, You’re supposed to Listen to THOSE who believe themselves to know better!

THEN comes the Worst one of them all.
When Your OWN Family want you to be Happy,
But they Totally and Utterly refuse to accept the Person or Terms or Choices You’ve made in securing Your OWN happiness.
No matter what direction you go in,
No matter what you do,
We all have the need to be Loved and Accepted in this regard.

This will not have happened; when THOSE around you believe they know BEST,
Which is sometimes the Furthest from the Truth! ! ! ! !
There are those days that they’ve seen something You’ve not.
But then, STILL it’s your right to make that Mistake AND for no one around Us to make any Choices for you.
How will anyone Learn what looks Good and What Not;
IF most of us do not get that Opportunity to make those Mistakes.

At the end of the day,
Even if “THEY” know you best,
You, Me, We All still have the Right to make-up or Minds and even THEN making the Mistake in giving the Wrong person the Chance…

That being Your Life to do such things.
THE best the Rest can do,
Support that One person,
Seeing that No One has that Right to Manipulate you OR the Situation so that You HAVE to change your Plans and Live,

To accommodate someone Else…


Trust Your Instincts

I know that Most of the time, Women in General are credited with having a better Intuition or Instincts about LIFE and things heading their way.

This may be true, as women in General also Mature faster than men do.

That said, they tend to arrive at Uncomfortable as well as Nice situations LONG before most Men do at their Age…

THUS, I do not dispute that the Intuition or Instincts are correct being said of Women,

BUT also, some Men may not care to Feel or Know something to come either.

It is there for My Believe that some Men,

If they were to trust their Knowledge, Instincts or even Intuition;

They may also see, know or wonder of things which may Transpire.

People in General are Afraid of what they do not Understand.

It’s not only Uncertainty, Fear, but it leaves us NOT to go Look for that trouble.

It keeps us Safe at times and those who do not care for this,

They Could land-up in a Difficult Position or even Worse than that.

STILL, here’s the Question,

When last did you listen to that Inner Voice, which did TRY and help you on the Right path.

How often does this happen that you can Listen to it AND

Find that it’s not Deferring you toward a Wrong Course,

Helping out more than You suspected?

If you do have this Luck OR

Burdon, when you’ve got to Speak to others as you Feel something about them;

Do you Actually Tell them or Just caution someone on Anything which might go Astray.

Are you MORE worried for them to Ask you how you could KNOW?

Do you Rather not even Mention something,

Even though you Know it can help that Person and YOU,

But your Fear of the Unknown doesn’t Allow you to Reach that Far in changing What could or May happen down the Road?

With Any kind of Knowledge and Wisdom,

There’s that Inert Responsibility to share it


At the most, help those which do not have it, Making the Best of choices they can.

Not listening to you, That’s a really BIG possibility,

Not to say they would or take you Seriously.

If YOU don’t even listen to that Inner-voice,

Why would they believe you If and When you try helping out…

The ONLY other question is this, do you Hear, Feel or Know there’s something not good or strange coming-

And what do you do about it.

For Yourself even, as this May not happen Regularly,

Would you Even do a thing about it, if that was, You did Feel something in your Bones?


The ABC’s

The ABC's

Learning your ABC’s is actually a Phrase Kinda made famous from the US if I’m not mistaken about this one.

The ABC’s of Life is a whole different situation;

I’ve Seen, Heard and been Privy to the various ideas of various People around me;

WILL and WANTING to do something in their Lives.

All of this is really good and I’d Never Ever tell a Soul not to REACH beyond for something Better in their Lives;

BUT then there’s so many People I’ve seen and found that didn’t GET the Basics RIGHT!

As the Saying goes:

Even the Best Laid Plans can go Astray…

But then, How many more People just goes Forth,

Not even Considering where they want to GO,

Or what kind of Plan they’d need be Putting in place in this Regard.

The moment we do not Plan well enough Ahead,

That’s the Time, Moment AND the Situation where we could Easily

Loose Traction in reaching our Goals or Destination!

It’s NOT to say that Things WILL be better the Better You plan ahead,

Seeing that Murphy’s Law or LIFE in General does tend to play a Role in our Plans.

You can DO whatever you can,

But things Just happen on their Own!

Thus, if you do plan,

This could easily involve someone who has more Knowledge of your idea,

Willing to help out more than you’d expect OR

They could just support you in doing what you need,

WORKING Your Rear Off in making things happen.

It is very easy for anyone to Fall off the Band-wagon,

Even MORE so when you’ve lost your Direction,

THUS, having as best Laid Plan AND

Those around who know what you’re Working toward;

They’d ALSO feel a little More involved in your Life,

They just might be that Pillar you need when things turn out a little


AND so,

All your dreams and ideas should Actually come with a

Action Plan,

Just to make the Next smallish – er Goal a little easier to reach.

Write it down,

Talk to ANYONE and Everyone who has any idea about yours,

They may give you In-valuable INFORMATION which you ONLY learn

By struggling through this – when you do not Have to do that…

Best of Luck…

As soon as their nausea passed from the spinning in the grass Timmy’s parents looked around at where they were and at the forest itself.
“We’re seriously not going in there, are we? A dark, scary massive forest why would you want us to go in there?” Victoria asked in a fearful tone.
Standing still, they stared wide-eyed at the forbidding place. They were challenged each time they took a step and found neither of them had any strength left. Now, they were supposed to walk decisively into a frightening never ending forest?
Herbert only smiled at them. “The only one we should be worried about is Timmy. Inside this forest is the only place here, where you’ll see him without having to use any part of your imaginations.”
“Brilliant!” Donald said as he smiled widely.
“At least we’ll finally see him—right?” Victoria asked, “Well, what are we waiting for then?” She now appeared to look as enthusiastic as Donald did.
“Yes, you’ll see him. The only problem is while inside there, he’ll be glowing like a very sharp strong shining light. If he glows too brightly, they’ll come after us and capture all of us. You do need to know it would be really bad—no one escapes from this forest once you’ve been captured. Even if the Elders wanted to help, if we’re trapped inside there, we’ll not come out no matter what. Seeing him would be the only thing as well, because you couldn’t touch or hold onto him either,” Herbert told them, suspecting the question might come up.
“I have no idea why you’re taking us through here then. There must be another way in. if you’d only try to find it!” Timmy yelled at him, “What other way is there to get around this forest?”
Standing at the edge of the deep, murky expanding forest, they heard the roaring of something inside of it. They were terrified even more now than before. The four stood back as everyone wanted to use the other as a shield.
“If any of you make a sound inside, we might as well go in directly to their nest because there’s no way we’ll sneak past them if you lose your cool,” Herbert scolded Timmy, “You need to relax and you need to follow your own way through here. You’re the one who is invisible and you’re the one who’ll have to lead us through there. You’ll be shining just enough for us to see and nothing more.”
“Isn’t there another way?” Victoria asked.
“I asked that myself, so why don’t you answer me Herbert?” Timmy asked, “What are you not telling us?”
“The only way would be over the forest using those very fast birds. The ones we couldn’t even see or catch even if we wanted to. Not one of them has ever been captured!” he told Donald and Victoria while looking at the still invisible Timmy. “I’ve not told you because you just might scream or worse…lose your temper again.”
“Scream or lose my temper? Why in the world would you care—?”
The next roar they heard was close to them now. They dropped to the ground, just waiting. Lying like the dead.
“Whatever you do? Do. Not. Move,” Herbert warned them in a hushed tone while still lying there, not moving a muscle.
Within the darkness of the forest, they couldn’t even see past the second tree. But then suddenly, they saw the creature’s eye while it looked for any kind of movement outside the forest itself. It had only one eye. The whiteness of the lone eye almost shone like a light. With the eye moving, did they hear the sounds from the creature. They heard some trees being pushed over. Then the sound of tree limbs cracking under the pressure from the creature. Immediately, they heard where more branches broke in another place. There was a second creature searching through the darkness. They were sneaking up on the four—double-teaming their prey.
One of them moved away and the group could hear the sound of metal rubbing over metal. The screeching sound echoed the loudest from the back. Everyone lay like statues. Not one of them even swallowed too loudly or too often. They kept an eye on the spots in the forest where they heard both creatures. They once more, heard the roaring sounds ripping through the forest. Their roaring generated an actual wind and blew parts of the dead forest over.
Herbert only now breathed normally while looking over at Timmy. “If you really want to catch any of those birds, I think you should climb one of the trees over there. Then you can struggle getting up the waterfall. Flying might be the hardest to do from there, but with your willpower, you just might get there. But then getting up there and catching one of those isn’t impossible after you’ve been there a year or so.” He stood up while still shaking. “The big problem comes when you take a hold of one of them, because the rest will come and attack you…Forcing you to get off the other and thus fall to your death.”
Timmy himself still stood looking shaken by what he’d seen. “What—were those things—Why the one eye—What sort of monstrous creatures live in that forest?” he asked the questions rapidly.
Herbert almost didn’t hear what he’d actually asked as the questions were all muddled into one garbled sentence.
Neither Donald nor Victoria could seem to get up. Their legs were shaking pretty badly.
Herbert took a bright pink fruit from a nearby tree, giving it to them to get some energy back into their bodies and he turned to Timmy. “If you cannot control your fear or emotions, then all of us will die in here. If you don’t want to grow-up and you just want to stay here forever, it means you’ll never know more than this place and here isn’t as real as where you come from. You need to relax because we do not have any other choice in the matter.”
“Okay…okay. But do we really have to go in there? Just how far would we have to go before we’re out on the other side?” Timmy asked while staring at his weakened parents who were getting up slowly. “They wouldn’t last here for one day on their own would they?” He realized that just like at the start of this, Herbert was the only one who could help them.
“We have to go inside the forest now,” Herbert told them, walking over to the exact spot where the creatures looked through the trees trying to see them.
“Just let the record show—this is a very-very bad idea—we’re all going to die inside of this really-really weird scary place,” Timmy warned as he now stood next to Herbert.
Donald and Victoria slowly made their way to where Herbert stood.
“I really don’t want to go in there,” Victoria whispered while holding Donald’s hand tightly.
“We can at least see Timmy while we’re in there.” Donald squeezed her hand with his. “We have to continue to try and get out of this place and get back to our normal lives. If we survive this, we’ll need a very nice normal vacation.” He tried to give her a shaky smile.
“Don’t worry too much, we’re just following Timmy. He’s the one we’re going to have to worry about.” Herbert put his hand on Timmy’s shoulder. “One very careful step at a time…buddy.”

10 Herbert's HAT          Flying…

He fell as fast as Donald and Victoria did when they jumped over the waterfall. Herbert then landed on a huge grass-leaf halfway down. The grass grew some distance up from the ground, so it stretched up high and this allowed Herbert to slide downward on it, right to the bottom.
“If this situation wasn’t weird enough this place is getting weirder by the moment,” Victoria shouted after him, “Now, we’ve got to jump a second time? Nothing will make me jump again!”
“We need to get down from here and we need to help Timmy get back to normal. We have to jump again…Take my hand and close your eyes. Hopefully, the grass ill catch us when we do go over,” Donald told her, taking her hand while shaking as much as she was.
They kept an eye on Herbert as Donald and Victoria stood there like statues standing in total shock seeing just how far Herbert stood below them.
“This idea doesn’t look safe enough!” Timmy shouted down at Herbert. Before he knew what happened with the last bit of energy Herbert possessed, Timmy was pulled from the hilltop, screaming like a girl all the way down.
Timmy knew the grass reached for him. It caught him and he slid to the ground.
“You two need to come down, we’ll need to stay together if ever we want to leave this world together,” Herbert called out to them. He knew despite the distance that they could still hear him, things were different here than where they came from. Herbert then saw one of the big elephant look-a-like animals walking up to them.
Covered in various colored stripes over its body, it stopped close enough to the two, then blew it’s trunk at the couple. It sounded like a ship’s foghorn, ripping almost through them while they were blown off the hillside. Free-falling off the hilltop, both of them looked more like they were trying desperately to paddle back. Screaming terribly loud all the way down, even more than what Timmy did. Not stopping like Timmy did halfway down though. With their screaming, the poor grass vibrated to the point each strand of grass separated from the other. They still held their form but just barely.
Donald and Victoria touched down on the grass, then they were spinning constantly on their backs. It wasn’t fast but by then, they looked really upset. When the spinning slowed, there they lay while looking bewildered. When they tried to get up, they spun around on the grass-slide.
“Where—where—is Timmy now?” Victoria managed to ask.
Timmy took a branch that lay on the ground and swung it around a few times. “Can the two of them see me doing this?”
“Yes, here they could even see the whole you if they would still believe and imagine like a child would.”
“They’re just angry because they think you made the animal scare them on purpose. Both of them are really nice but they’re not what you would call go getters,” Timmy explained to poor Herbert––who knew very little about Timmy’s parents. “That’s the real reason why they took over ten years to move to New York, then they’ve got this issue with me. Wanting me to be just like them, not doing much, just not getting into trouble. Strange, I’m just like them but they think I’m different.” Timmy walked toward the deep dark scary forest growing wildly before them as he spoke, “I only try the things I’m really curious about. They do what they can I suppose, but then sometimes, life looks a little scary for everyone.” He smiled as though he just figured something out for the first time.

‘This is brilliant. I’m possibly the only one underneath the water!’ Timmy thought to himself while holding his breath and looking about. There were all kinds of things in the water while he walked out of a deep trench right underneath the thundering flow splashing down on top of him.

‘Am I’m the only one who has to walk and climb over some massive boulders just to get out of the water?’ Timmy wondered with frustration, not getting any connection to Herbert while he walked under the water. ‘Could I drown if I can’t hold my breath any longer if I’m not out from under the water by that time? It’s not like there’s any kind of pressure on my lungs…Wow, I might even make it out without needing another breath. What the heck, Herbert? Why can I only now hear you inside the water?’ Timmy shouted at him feeling the water motion on his body––making him walk slowly.

“Don’t worry about it just get yourself out of there!” Herbert answered him.

Before anyone could do or say much, Timmy pulled out and now between his parents. He didn’t disturb the water. There wasn’t even a drop falling from him.

“He’s okay, he’s here,” Herbert informed them.

“I can’t take this place anymore and we’ve not even been here long—how will we survive here?” Victoria asked, walking over to Donald who held her.

Timmy knew his mother was being overly emotional and he shrugged as he looked up and saw they were now on a hilltop. Looking from the top, he could see well beyond. He saw a big village and further beyond, there lay a massive castle in the far distance.

“So, where would your shadow be then?” Donald asked.

“If he didn’t find the Elders in the village, then he would be in the castle. The only thing is we’ll have to walk there from here.”

“That’s just brilliant. At this distance away, just how long would it take us to get there on foot?” Timmy wanted to know, seeing the true distance it actually was.

“It doesn’t matter how far it is away from here. Time doesn’t have an effect on us. The good thing is that as long as we’re here, the Fear Eater cannot get to you…or the rest of us,” Herbert assured him.

“Okay, so what can—get to us?’ Timmy asked seeing Herbert wasn’t too happy with this question.

“Okay—but what can get us here?” Donald asked the same exact question. “What are you not telling us?”

“What kind of trouble lay ahead of us here? Seeing we’re not even supposed to be here?” Victoria added her questions as well.

Timmy walked to the edge of the hilltop they stood on. Then he looked at the deep drop that looked very steep. They could get off it only one way.

The entire group peered over the edge, seeing the ground exposed and saw there were numerous roots growing through the ground. They saw different colored worms as well. Each worm looked different in size and thickness while moving through the ground eating the roots while they moved.

“The problem is this…” Herbert finally spoke, “…I’ve never lost my hat before and this would be the only time I’ve heard that any one of us lost their connectivity to our world. What the Elders would do to me I’ve got no idea. They could throw me in jail and simply just throw away the key. Even if they’re able to help us, if we speak to the wrong people and they know you’re here you might as well never leave this place. I just do not know—what they’ll do.”

“Then why did you bring us here to begin with?” Victoria asked in an angry tone.

Only then, did Herbert turn and look at them. “Because, I have no idea how to get Timmy out from under my hat and the Elders will hopefully know the answer to this. The only problem is by now, everyone will know you’re here—that could be an issue.” Herbert said while tears rolled over his cheeks for the first time ever. “I do not know what will happen but I know with your fears or imagination anything is possible here.”

“Except for prison what else would they do to you?” Donald asked with concern.

Gazing up at Donald and then over at Victoria, he answered, “They’ll burn my hat and I would never be able to step foot in your world again…I’d never help anyone from your world, ever again. In short, I would lose my job!” he answered and then he jumped off the hilltop.

Herbert’s HAT (World of Imagination Series, Book 1 of 6) Chapter 2, Section 2

Box Box-Side Just Opened Stacked 10 Herbert's HAT

While the two were arguing, Herbert walked through the tunnel and stood at the end. He saw a massively big waterfall. The water rushed past from an invisible place and blasted well out of his reach. It was cool and he could taste the water vapor on his tongue when he opened his mouth. The water refreshed him, soothing all his pains, scratches and bruises. Inside the water, he could see there were fish of some kind, swimming upstream.
“Oh—brother—what now?” Timmy stood next to him on the very edge of the waterfall. “How much of this is me?”
“I have no idea. The thing of this place is…what you like the most comes through most of the time. The things you’re the most afraid of comes through the least. So, unless you dislike such a huge massive waterfall we’re facing at the end of this tunnel, then I think it must be one of them dreaming this up. Flying is easy––but running away from your problems might not be such a good idea.”
“Do you know how nice it would have been to pee into this water…But then again, you do know I can’t do that anymore.”
Herbert rolled his eyes as his young companion completely missed the point of what he just explained.
The longer Timmy and Herbert stood at the end of the tunnel the louder the roaring waterfall became.
Only now did the Donald and Victoria walk over to them. Due to the roar of the water, they were unable to hear each other arguing any more. They saw a light mist beyond the tunnel they were in. Below them, lay a massively wide stretching forest. There were hundreds of birds and even a very nice looking rainbow reaching far and wide, away from them. It wasn’t straight at all, rather it ran like a constant wave. Having a crest and then dipping…a crest and then dipping. It looked smooth reaching over the sky but it looked solid as well.
“The rainbow could be you, and I hope it’s made up from candy or something nice.” Herbert looked over at Timmy.
“Why do you need to reach the end of the rainbow when the rainbow itself can be the treasure?” Timmy thought aloud, then both of them suddenly fell out of the tunnel’s end.
Looking up, the two saw Donald and Victoria were still at the edge while both Herbert and Timmy were floating like feathers down to the water.
“There’s more than one entrance into my world. Every time we go, it is into a different entrance and if we enter my world with someone who shouldn’t be here…we’ll fall into my world,” Herbert shouted at Timmy, “And I’ve never ever heard of a human coming here. It will take some doing to get to the Elders.”
Just then, they heard the tunnel behind them as it started to fall in on itself. Well, at least none of the black candy balls would roll into the tunnel after them.
Donald and Victoria gaped at the drop before them. They heard the crumbling tunnel heading their way while both stood terrified. “How can this be happening?” Victoria screamed.
“I have no idea, but we’ll have to go or we’ll be crushed!”
His parents came along and they got soaking wet on their way down next to the waterfall.
Timmy in fact, floated with the mist generated by the water. He chuckled when his parents zipped past him looking like gravity worked twice as hard while pulling them toward the water below.
Herbert and he heard one massively long, intense scream blaring out from his parents.
Even Herbert suddenly fell as fast like they did, while Timmy enjoyed the slow scenic route on his way down.
Long before the three even reached the bottom, the three were soaked trough their clothes. While they were falling, they saw fish stacking upon each other.
Timmy had time to peruse the odd fish, he figured that the waterfall reached far too high, so they were working together to get to the top and the fish were aiming for the rocks in the flow of the water. To his surprise, they also used ropes. They didn’t swim upstream as some of them didn’t have fins. They would just clasp onto the rope at some point, then be pulled along. They looked like each other but they differed in smaller detail. Some of them had arms and were of various colors. Others, only legs and there were those with both. Then there was the poor unfortunate ones which didn’t have any limbs. One thing all of them did have in common was teeth—very sharp teeth with which they could take a nice piece out of anyone. This made them look really weird, especially when they smiled. They weren’t Piranhas but they did look pretty scary even if they were smiling nicely.
“Why are they trying to get up the waterfall?” Timmy shouted over the constant thundering water.
Herbert was far too far away from him but heard Timmy in his mind still. “To be completely honest I have no idea. I’ve never come into my world this way. This is a first for me as well!”
They’d fallen so far down by now, Herbert couldn’t see Timmy while he kept on floating down toward the water below. Herbert darted into the water falling behind Donald and Victoria. He wanted to shout back at Timmy but then, he hit the water. Only, they barely touched it. They didn’t go below the water at all. With the water constantly falling from above, Herbert just lay on top of it. He drifted some distance away from the falling water before the thundering sound of the waterfall suddenly stopped.
Timmy still floated down with the water-mist and he could still hear the massive roaring thunder in his ears. He had no idea that the roaring sound would stop until he got to the water.
Although Donald and Victoria fell really fast they didn’t hit the water fast either. Just dipping slightly into the water. As soon as they were in the water, they were almost pushed up to the surface before they stopped stressing.
Along the edge above them, herds of strange animals were busy making their way forward. Some had horns and spots while others were different colors of neon, almost glowing. There were even big hopping bunnies of all colors and candy striped squirrels.
“Are those animals?” Donald asked Herbert. “What are they doing?”
“Yes, those are animals. I think they’re being transported to everyone’s dreams. No matter who you are––if anyone dreams of anything at all we have to make sure they have an image of what they’re dreaming about. If I’m right, this is the section for the animals everyone dreams about. In fact, they always use the waterfall as a portal to go through. The fish are stupid they’re doing something different…I have no idea why.”
The water became yellow while they reach the end of the small lagoon. They weren’t far enough from the falling water not to hear the impressive thunder from it. Still, its thundering wasn’t in their ears anymore.
Everyone could stand now. They had solid ground underneath their feet while looking around them, so now they could see various animals and a big enough forest for them to live inside of.
Just then, Herbert saw Timmy only had a few feet or so to go. While he floated the last short distance, he moved even faster than they did and slammed right into the deep water. Leaving on massive splash of water. He dropped right to the bottom of the lagoon.
Herbert kept looking back to see when and where he’d come up. Uncertain of where he might be.
“Is Timmy here with us?” Victoria shouted.
“He floated down on the mist and plunged into the water even harder than we did. But then this is my first time entering from this side and with humans, so I just don’t know.”
“Well? Where is he?” Donald asked.
“Timmy is okay, he’s walking out from under the water now,” Hebert told them having heard his thoughts as he smiled uneasily at both Donald and Victoria.
