"Confessions", styled "Confe$$ions", is a Christian hip hop song by Lecrae from his album Gravity, released on September 4, 2012. Lyrically, the song critiques the pursuit of wealth and expresses the emptiness and lack of peace that comes with materialism. StupidDOPE called "Confe$$ions" "a deep, hard hitting, thoughtful number that finds Lecrae speaking from his heart while he hangs out and shows us the wolves", AllHipHop explained the song as addressing the hollowness of lots of money with no peace; the BoomBox stated that "The old saying'money can't buy you happiness' isn't further from the truth for Lecrae, who raps about companions who have the game twisted about what's important". Allmusic described Lecrae as taking on bling culture with a Christian-based message "in the unexpected, brittle style of a beatnik poet or Saul Williams on Def Poetry Jam." Stylistically, the song features a dramatic, slow-tempo beat, DaSouth described it as carrying "a burdened aroma of ecclesiastical despondency with an uncredited Bruno Mars-esque chorus".
The music video for "Confe$$ions" depicts a masquerade ball at which David Banner portrays a dissatisfied gold-masked millionaire engaging with a gold-masked woman dressed in green, interspersed with footage of a hunting wolf. Video director Kyle Dettman explained that the wolf, which tracks down and devours a quail, symbolizes the predatory inner character of the millionaire as he pursues money, represented by the woman in gold and green; the video debuted on BET's hip-hop music video station 106 & Park on April 30, 2013.

Michael Thomas Kelly was an American journalist for The New York Times, a columnist for The Washington Post and The New Yorker, a magazine editor for The New Republic, National Journal, The Atlantic. He came to prominence through his reporting on the 1990-1991 Gulf War, was well known for his political profiles and commentary, he suffered professional embarrassment for his role as senior editor in the Stephen Glass scandal at The New Republic. Kelly was killed while covering the invasion of Iraq, in 2003. During a journalism career that spanned 20 years, Kelly received a number of professional awards for his book on the Gulf War and his articles, as well as for his magazine editing. In his honor, the Michael Kelly Award for journalism was established, as well as a scholarship at his alma mater, the University of New Hampshire. Born in Washington, D. C. Kelly followed both of his parents into journalism, his mother is Marguerite Kelly, a columnist of "The Family Almanac" for The Washington Post, his father was Thomas Vincent Kelly, a political and features reporter for The Washington Star, for The Washington Times.
Kelly attended Gonzaga College High School. He graduated in 1979 from the University of New Hampshire with a bachelor's degree in History, he had worked on The New Hampshire. He met his future wife Madelyn Greenberg, a producer at CNN and CBS News, during the 1988 presidential election while they were both assigned to the Dukakis campaign. Greenberg was assigned to the Gulf War and Kelly followed, working on his own reporting project; the couple married in 1991. Kelly wanted to report on the start of the Iraq War in 2003. For this war, the U. S. military embedded journalists into coalition military units and Kelly acceded to this approach, as did around 600 other journalists. Kelly was assigned to the same unit as journalist Ted Koppel of ABC Nightline. On April 3, 2003, a few weeks following the 2003 invasion of Iraq, U. S. forces were the center of Baghdad. Koppel, in his preface to Things Worth Fighting For: Collected Writings, said that he and Kelly learned that securing the airport was the 3rd Infantry Division's mission on the night when he last saw Kelly alive.
During that invasion, Kelly was traveling in a Humvee vehicle with Staff Sergeant Wilbert Davis, a 15-year U. S. Army veteran; the vehicle carrying Kelly and Davis into a canal below. Both men died in the accident. Kelly was the first U. S. reporter killed in action in Iraq. Michael Kelly was survived by two children, his father, Thomas V. Kelly, was working on a book about his son Michael, but he died June 17, 2010 before its completion, his sister Katy Kelly is a former journalist at USA Today. She writes the Lucy Melonhead series of children's books, she has said that her Melonhead character was inspired by her brother Michael. His widow Madelyn Kelly co-authored the book A Parent's Guide to Raising Grieving Children: Rebuilding Your Family after the Death of a Loved One with Dr. Phyllis R. Silverman, an expert on childhood bereavement. Michael Kelly's first media job was booking guests for ABC News and its Good Morning America television program, he was a newspaper journalist for The Cincinnati Post, The Baltimore Sun and after writing freelance and reporting in the first Gulf War, he worked for The New York Times.
While he worked freelance, his articles were published in The Boston Globe and GQ. The New Republic published his reporting on the Persian Gulf War in 1991, he was a staff writer for The New York Times Magazine. In 1994, he joined The New Yorker and wrote its "Letter From Washington" column until his departure in 1996. At that point in his career, Kelly had worked with editors such as Hendrik Hertzberg at The New Republic, Robert Vare at The New York Times Magazine and Tina Brown at The New Yorker. In 1996, Kelly became the editor of The New Republic, where his protectiveness of his staffers—along with the criticisms he leveled against publisher Martin Peretz's friend Al Gore —created friction with the magazine's management, he was dismissed after less than a year as editor. Writer Stephen Glass had been a major contributor under Kelly's editorship; the New Republic issued a public apology for this breach of journalism ethics after it was revealed by an investigation by Kelly's successor, Charles Lane.
Forbes Online had published an exposé of Glass' work. Kelly was Glass's editor before Forbes exposed the latter's falsehoods, he was supportive of Glass, sending scathing letters to those who challenged the veracity of Glass's stories. After losing his job at The New Republic, Kelly was hired by David G. Bradley to write a column for the National Journal, he was promoted to editor. After Bradley purchased The Atlantic Monthly in 1999, he hired Kelly to run it; the Atlantic won three National Magazine Awards under Kelly's leadership and two more after his death. Kelly's collected works were published posthumously as Things Worth Fighting For: Collected Writings. Kelly's legacy remains divided. On one side, he is remembered as a journalist who "stood for truth, died for his beliefs." But he has been criticized for his vocal support for the invasion of Iraq, now seen as a failure attributed to a press, not critical enough. Combined as it was with his support of Stephen Glass during his scandal, Tom Scoc
The microcosmic orbit known as the Self Winding Wheel of the Law, is a Taoist Qigong or tao yin qi energy cultivation technique. It involves deep breathing exercises in conjunction with meditation and concentration techniques which develop the flow of qi along certain pathways of energy in the human body which may be familiar to those who are studying traditional Chinese medicine, Qigong, T'ai chi ch'uan and Chinese alchemy; the exercise can be performed at first in a sitting position, but it can be practiced standing as in Zhan zhuang or with movements included as with T'ai chi ch'uan. The clear understanding of the microcosmic orbit technique is important not only because of its historical context in the story of Chinese alchemy but because it is at the heart of many Taoist forms of exercise performed throughout the world by many millions of people today; the history of the microcosmic orbit dates back to prehistoric times in China, the underlying principles can be found in the I Ching which according to legend was written by the Emperor Fu Xi five thousand years ago or at least two centuries before the time of the Yellow Emperor.
For example, the Chinese character for the I Ching hexagram number 5, depicts a person sitting in meditation and the commentary pertains to the flow of energy from one of the psychic energy channels to another during meditation: The commentary on the Image for hexagram 5 reveals the entire process of meditation. "The clouds rise up to heaven" symbolizes the meditator's energy rising upward as it evaporates into the head, where it is distilled into a saliva like nectar, which returns to the abdomen. " It furthers one to cross the great water" alludes to crossing the great water of the abdomen and mouth. Lao Tzu and Chuang Tzu have alluded to the technique of meditation and encouraging circulation of energy through the psychic meridians in their writings. For example, Chuang Tzu's chapter entitled Yang Sheng Chu or "Principles of Health and Longevity" states: "Use your mind to carry the vital energy along your Tu Mo upward constantly" A stone carving in the White Cloud Temple in Beijing which bears an inscription "the sixth month of the year Ping-hsu of the Kuang-hsu era" contains a pictorial representation of some of the symbols which describe the processes involved in the microcosmic orbit meditation technique.
These particular techniques are derived from the Taoist Patriarch Lü Dongbin, born in 798 AD. Lü Dongbin was one of the Eight Immortals. Lü Dongbin and his teacher, Chung-li Ch ` üan, were two of pa-hsien. While a fugitive after an abortive Chinese military expedition against Tibet, Chung-li Ch'uan encountered Master Tung-hua, he "earnestly begged for the secrets of immortality. Master Tung-hua thereupon imparted to him not only an infallible magic process for attaining longevity, but the method to produce the Philosopher's Stone." The exercise itself begins with preparation designed to relax the physical body and develop the ability to concentrate. Students may indeed be encouraged to practice Taoist Yoga exercises or T'ai chi ch'uan as a way of building enough energy to begin performing the microcosmic orbit exercise as it can induce a strain on the nervous system and cause energy depletion if practiced without adequate preparation. To begin with the student is encouraged to develop deep abdominal breathing into the primary dantian or Taoist energy centre to develop heat and pressure in the lower abdomen or "Golden Stove".
A preparatory exercise known by some as the Lesser Heavenly circulation involves moving energy between two areas known as the seat of fire near the heart or the solar plexus where a psychic centre symbolised by the trigram Li from the I Ching is located, the seat of water in the area of the kidneys where a psychic centre symbolised by the trigram kan is located. Essence or jing can flow either way through the eight extra meridians or energy pathways in the body, but in the microcosmic orbit meditation exercise jing is encouraged to flow upwards along the Governor vessel during inhalation and downwards along the conception vessel returning to the dantian on the exhalation; this means that energy flows from the dantian downwards to the base of the spine up the back along the centre line of the body to the crown of the head over the head and down the front centre line of the body and back to the starting point again making a full circle or orbit. This prevents the body's natural essences from becoming depleted as they flow downwards from the brain or'sea of marrow' and are lost during ejaculation or menstruation during the reproductive processes.
It is this jing or essence, responsible for the reproductive processes in the body which allow the body to rejuvenate itself as well as for the reproductive processes which give rise to offspring. Essence is an important component in the manufacture of qi which can be translated into English as vitality or energy, the primary motive force, life itself; this raising and lowering Jing through the microcosmic orbit and returning it to the dantian purifies the essence and transforms it intoqi or vitality. As well as the lower dantian or cauldron there are other important points along the circuit of energy flow which include the'three gates' which are areas where it is considered that energy may stagnate, these are the wei-lu or Tailbone gate, the Dorsal gate on the back level with the heart, the Jade pillow on the back of the head. Other important areas include the Ming Men or gate of fire on the back about level with the kidneys and the Baihui or Niwan, directly on top of the head; the microcosmic orbit should be viewed in the context of a
