Sleeping in a Coffin?

Point of correction, I do not sleep in a casket, I sleep on my bed, it’s big and comfy, I only lay in my “casket”when I do my meditation because it helps me to be focused, it tells me more about the imminence of death. My casket is a reminder. It wakes me up from slumber. It tells me, “guy, you have got little or no time left, wake up, be creative and work”.

Of course, when I read some of the comments of my people, I know a good number of us are ill-informed about quite a number of things. I think it is more of what the casket represents that shocks my people and they start reading meanings into it, depending on their level of understanding. But one question is, what if the same wood that was used to build the casket was used to make a sofa chair? May be, all the hullabaloo about me sitting on a chair wouldn’t have been there in the first place? So when people vocalize their disapproval of my message via the image of a casket,  I understand that they do that from a position of Fear, fear of what the casket represents – Death. So whatever people fear they antagonize. But, the fact that I have reminded myself and even you about death does not really change a thing. It won’t draw your death near, and it won’t even shift it away. All it does is simply a reminder, to thread carefully.

My Coffin sensitizes

Only if a kidnapper can buy a casket for himself today, and begin to lay inside, constantly reminding himself that death looms even as he goes about kidnapping and extorting money from families. It’s possible to realize at a point that all his activities will one day end up in a casket, and there, his flesh will rotten. The same is applicable to all evil doers. They need to realize, like in the famous book, “Waiting for Godot” that the world is bizarre and empty, as vanity plus vanity will always end up in vanity. Crime no dey pay jor.

My Coffin preaches:

Take a critical look at my image inside the coffin, it speaks volume. I always lay in my casket with my cap, glasses, shoes on. I’m always well dressed. Yes, it is always done intentionally to tell us that your glory disappears with all the wealth you must have acquired the very day you go to that coffin. Your glory-your cap goes with you, your vision-your glasses goes with you; your struggle-your shoes goes with you. The only thing left of you is your history and your legacy. The crux of the message is to leave a legacy, so we can live forever, not in the physical, but in people’s memories.  As for me, I will live forever. You dey vex???

We are blind because of our fears

Who knows what any of us sees from the privacy of our own blindness? Make no mistakes, each of us is blind in a particular way, just as each of us is sighted uniquely. Consider how each of us is blinded by what we fear. If we fear heights, we are blind to the humility vast perspectives bring. If we fear Passion, we are blind to the comfort of Oneness. If we fear change, we are blind to the abundance of life. If we fear death, we are blind to the mystery of the unknown. And since to fear is something thoroughly human, to be blind is unavoidable. It is what each of us must struggle to overcome. To a large degree, I have overcome my fear of death, all I ask God, is that may my death not be painful. I’m sure some of you know how my cousin who was killed by kidnappers died an agonizing death. You see, in the course of our lives, we all stumble and struggle, repeatedly, in and out of relationship, in and out of the grace of the hidden wholeness of life, most of us struggle and stumble with the uncertainty of tomorrow as Nigerians. I have discovered that in the course of our lives, and as blind children, we may never know what we are called to be until we have learned what we are called to become by simply overcoming our fears. In life, death is the most important reminder of all activities. Abi you dey vex???

    See, In this life everybody has his or her own point of viwe. Those that see these as a good philosophy, dont fear death let them sleep in a coffin nah,fools……..

  13. Surelly, you have a good philosophy and view about life and death,but does it mean that everybody would be using COFFIN instead of bed if they all have the same philosophy as you do.?

  14. Their is time for every thing on Earth and development is in stages, thank goodness Charly boy now think about his journey in this world, this is a lesson all our leaders lacked, they forgot they brought nothing into this world and they will take nothing out of it except the least materials they were borrow at burial i.e a pear of shoe, a pear of socks, a cap, one coat, goggle if any, pant if they remember to wear him one. The best thing you can leave behind you is legacy of how you fear when on earth. Tell them, they need to learn by force.

You are just joking about death and no philosophy is make out of this.

  18. ttose who are blind may praise yet there is a devilish undertone.mau God deliver him

  19. Hi brother charlie, I appreciate ur philospy and belive about life. Life is an opportunity given to us by ALMIGHTY GOD , so we should alway note dat one day we are going back to where we came from.
    Regards.

  20. Evry 1of us sees it @his/her own point of view. Read ur bibles 2knw n b convinced by “ur own self”. B wise enof.

  21. I Would Love dis For Real If That is Ur Real Intention Of Doing Dis….
    For Lucky Stars Are More Satanic In Nigeria
    Anyway, Its A Lesson Here Only Dat I Pray uu (Charlie Boy ) Would Learn From It For Real!!!!!!!!

  22. When u closed ‘ur eyes in that thing & realised u are already in the other world, tell the world, where will u spend eternity, in heaven or in hell? Hope u knw ther’s life after death? Philosophy, legacy or no Legacy, have u accepted Jesus as ur lord & personal saviour?

  23. Life oh life. I don knw wat to say about this

  24. Charlie Boy is saying the real truth, is good one should always seat down and think of his life that we came with nothing definitely we most leave with nothing, so why are we intimidate the poor people? so is good we fear God almighty and serve him with all our heart.

  25. Jesus loves you...

    “for God so loved the world that he gave us his only b were begotten son, that whosoever believe in him should not perish but pass from death to life” John 3:16
    “and this is the condemnation, that men love darkness more than light because their deeds are evil” john

    “come unto me you who are heavily laden and I will give you rest. for my yoke is easy and my burden is light” Matthew 10…

    Why Still waiting? Run to him that can save your life here and hereafter. He will give you a meaningful life. You won’t need a coffin to make money, get fame, or to secure your life against death, or even to remind you of how short a time you have… it’s written “I won’t leave you desolate, I will send a comforter to you who will guide you and bring you to the remembrance of all things.”

    Heaven is real, likewise hell! think twice! accept and embrace Jesus today…

  26. Jesus is waiting for you

  28. Wow!
    You make my day…i didnt know you are this good in reasonning.
    You make me marvel…i surport your view of life and its rhapsody.
    All nigerian learn from this…

  29. Ikechukwu James

    Oga Charlie there are places more better than coffin for meditation. You will not surface what you use the coffin for to the public and people of the world do not allow your brains to be used so cheap.

    Coffin never symbolizes any good anywhere in the world and on planet earth. Coffin is not a library or of any comfort for a good thinker.

    Let us open our eyes and be wise not quickly fall for any political orator

  30. How true is this? Your intention is best known to you. But Βέ real to yourself.
    Two people can never Βέ deceive at a time.
    Anyway! Am just passing oooo

  31. Quadri Ajetunmobi

    Bitter true,bross.

  32. plz lets wake up, most of our people ar sleepin, by accefting chalie’s idea.
    he is not meaning wat he is sayin but a hidden illuminati massage he send to low tinkers to bliev.
    plz tink well nd find d way out.

  33. please forget about him saying the truth or not it is the lesson behind it. at least we learn one or more from it it, lets make good use of it.

  34. The whole story is a bullshit! Repent and God will accept u back.

  35. Mr Vic i lov ur speech smtin we al behv lyk a lunatic being bt in dis case Chi Boy is a silly being.

  36. Dis can not be 4 phill. Reasons. Dis is d end time aproach to make some shallow minded state orating darkness. Let dis not encourage u start sleeping in a casket. It brings doom while living. It is good form of exsultation in a wrong way. Don’t be deceived. NEK EMASON:-)

  37. Its jst very patetic dat most ppl re easily dcved wit som polishd lies. Yez d msg is clear abt death bt wat has it got to do wit one sleepng in cofin wel dresd al all for d sake of meditatng? Rubbish in fact arrant nonscence

  38. Eternity in View

    Bro charlie, grt piece, wnderfu message but pls dont forget to always go to d author&finisher of ur faith JESUS CHRIST to save&secure ur life cos ther is more to ur drama than all wat u said. D Illuminate, gay & other story around u pls clear/stop. Life,death,heaven&hell are real.

  39. Lord, teach us to number our days, that we may apply our hearts unto wisdom

  40. Lies! That was a cooked philosophy deliberately presented to cajole nigerians into believing that there is nothing behind his sleeping in a casket. Only a “dumb” like him will believe such stories. King Solomon of the Bible, the wisest and the riches man of his time, never approached life in such a way. He talked about life with reckless abandon but never slept in a casket. Charly Boy should come out plain. There is definitely something behind his sleeping in a casket that is best known to him. I will not believe his stories, never!

    Thank God for his message God can speak through any person in various way, i wish that these message will be televised in all the NTA station across the 36 state of the federation so as to reflect on this call of repentance by God through his servant charly Boy. I love your ideology and philosphy.

  43. You dont need to leep in a coffin to drive home your point. cheap lie. Tell us d truth you sleep in a coffin bec that was d contract you signed with satan for the fame money power & position you got now. Repent today accept Jesus into ur life.

  44. I de laugh! Charlie Dad, at 61 the end of ur world is drawing close. No need to dramatise it. My fear for you is NOT to attract burglars as that coffin look expensive. They can dare death for it. This is our fatherland. RIP in advance Chalie.

  45. I de laugh! Charlie Dad, at 61 the end of ur world is drawing close. No need to dramatise it. My fear for you is NOT to attract burglars as that coffin look expensive. They can dare death for it. This is our fatherland. RIP in advance Chalie. You were only known with bike.

  46. Charley boy seeking cheap popularity, cheap publicity. When u sleep and wake up on ur bed u thnk God ur alive, bcos thousand of people slept but never woke up, that is what a believer does. What does an old man who still pierce his body knws abt death, an old man with tatoo, an old man who once pose unclad on a power bike? What can I learn abt death frm such. Can u learn abt death frm Jay Z? Its funny.
    For dos of u who don’t knw d English meaning of “Charlie” pls check ur dictionary u will knw Charlieboy is living by his name. Bull Shit

What does an old man who still pierce his body knws abt death, an old man with tatoo all over his body, an old man who once pose unclad on a power bike? What can I learn abt death frm such. Can u learn abt death frm Jay Z? Its funny. Dnt u tink dat Popes, Imams, Pastors nd Sheikhs tink abt death? Why are dey not sleeping inside coffin?
    For dos of u who don’t knw d English meaning of “Charlie” pls check ur dictionary u will knw Charlieboy is living by his name. Bull Shit.
    Go ahead and build a manson in a grave yard to tink abt death. f**ked up ideology, cheap philosophy. And 4 those of u who tink charlie boys philosophy is d best, I tink u beta look inword

  48. Coffin is made for the dead,not for the living Pls someone should ask him what is he maditating in a coffin,i guess is not the bible.is only evil things that can be done in a coffin

  49. I always respect what come out of you mouth cos u are real,u are one of great philosopher of our time, they may not appreciate ur work now but they appreciate later,thank u 4 d message.

  50. Crap! This aint philosophy nor ideology there is more to it. There is nting we won’t see or hear in this last days

  51. I like ur work. I also hate ur sentiments about kidnappers ‘cos they’re not worse than comisioners and ministers who loot money meant 4 hospitals, roads, and pple die everyday of accident and illness. But they fly on air like ayogu eze and go 4 routine hospital checkup at germany like president wife. SHAME TO U ALL who cant talk to them about it, rather u flex ur muscle on poor kidnapers who only want a share of our stolen money.

  52. Pop up. Charly boy u live ur life

  53. Must you sleep in a casket before you remember the brevity of life Charlie Boy,instead you may decide to be visiting the cemetry every hour instead of declaring yourself publicly this way.I’m afraid this is triangle with an eye at the centre member.Obara Jesus.

  54. I don’t still get your point MR CHARLY BOY????……….sleeping in a coffin irritates! Ishhhhh!

  55. Charley boy d living has nothing 2 do wit d death, so remove ur self from dat casket. It has no meaning.

  56. Jesus loves u bro. Jst come bck 2 Him and He will give u rest.

  57. Dat guy is a cultist seeking attention and u all gave it to him..nonsense

  58. charley wat u known is best known to u. Meaning while, u acted like a philosopher, bcos they are d point of contradictions, people see dem as fools, socrates was accused of corrupting d youth yet after his death he was and still worshiped as d wisest of all. D sophists clams to be d wisest yet dey cannot define d meaning of death. Socrates went abt asking questions bcos he believes he does not know yet d oracle chose him as d wisest man.
    Philosophers uses many ways to convarge der masssage eg we have people like heracletus, perminedes, pythagoras, karl max, neitche who said dat God is dead, heidger, john paul sautre, etc all dese men were radical thinkers and people saw dem as pagans but later their massages formed d bedrock of our modern thinkers. So charles if d massage u pass through by ur action is wat u mean, u must be one of d most influencial philosopher of d contemporary era. Bcos ur massage contains deep mediatation about d ultimate end of man. We all should tink abt were we are heading rather dan finding devilish meaning in his massage. Let us change our attitude of tinking. Stil charle u no ur mind better dan us. I judge u base on ur openness and d reason u gave us behand ur action

  59. Without accepting Jesus as d lord of ur life, that He suffer 4 ur sins & rose again. U’ll suffer 4 ur sins in hell fire. Then all this ur philosophy is nonsense.

  60. D man is doin his asignment which is askd 2 do 4 his fame sak,cos if he doesnt do it na problm,bt devil is wickdoo repentooo

  61. hearing everyone comment boils down to one thing, that the world is in a stage of fear of the unknown. charlie has passed on his message the best way he understood life, just as everyone understand life in his or her own perspective. so let not be judges to his philosophy but rather get the message, accept it or ignore it. it is him that will be answerable to God on the last day not you or me. Your message is clear sir, and i appreciate your message about death and life but absolutely, we all have our reasons for our action. cheers.
