The joy of Calmness Within the Mind

There is peace obtained by blocking out the noise. No person has to take in what’s being said. There will be some communications which hold value and there will be some words removed because they’re dysfunctional. “In order to proceed joyfully there are the needs to think positively.” By: Tanikka Paulk. Some could be focusing on the areas in which there will be no progression. If what’s being said isn’t adding any value then why take what’s being said in? There’s so much to discover and so many ways to obtain peacefulness. There are so many continuously thinking that their rights are to cause disturbances. No!

My yes remain focused on the glory! I’m where I Tanikka Paulk am today because of God. Yes that’s right. God the Father of Jesus Christ. No matter how many waves are clashing there is calmness in the sea. How many consider the best ways to generate peace? There are some rarely experiencing peace because of their though process. The negatives will be generated but there should be ways to experience peacefulness. To be focused on what will generate prosperity is better than focusing on the negatives. I’m continuing for many reasons.

There is hopefulness and there is a smile because I’ve been chosen to walk this journey. Yes, there are so many who have tried to take away my dreams, they’ve focused on areas which isn’t their business at all. There will be continued discoveries and I’m exploring. “The seeking continues.” (Tanikka Paulk) To be able to obtain joyfulness is truly a blessing. The words spoken have added some value and there are some words which could’ve been left inside the mouths of others.

To go into meditation is what is needed. There are ways to just sit and ponder on the many blessings given. What’s chosen for me=Tanikka Paulk isn’t chosen for all. My journey doesn’t belong to every person. They’ve tried to cause mind disturbances but I’ve chosen to be at peace. There are so many powerful words to read and view. There is still movement and I’m focusing on what truly matters. “There is hope here and I’m so happily continuing.” By: Tanikka Paulk. There is sunshine after every storm.

No matter where I’m placed, there is joy, I’ve spoken to my Father, and i’m aware just what He has for me=Tanikka Paulk. I’ve been attacked and perhaps I’ve irritated some by continuing but there is grace and glory. The journey has been given and I’m receiving. There will be more joy obtained when the abundance arrives. No matter what mankind does> God send the favor. Oh yes indeed. I’m favored. The path was designed before my arrival and I’m on the path right now. Thanks.

My Courage, my Exploring, and my Beliefs

what I’m continuing to believe in is that. I’m believing in my progress and I’m believing that God nor Jesus will forsake ,me=Tanikka Paulk. No matter how many attacks there are there won’t be any hopelessness. I’ve been challenges so many times and I’ve been called so many names. “It’s what I’m believing in that truly matters.” By: Tanikka Paulk. What I’ve faced so many probably would stray away from. The fear would cause so many to run away from the mission ahead. The competitors aren’t “courageous.” They’ve demonstrated how intimidated they are. They’ve focused on what I’ve been up to and not what they should be discovering.

The bravery has allowed the journey to continue to move forward. There are some indulged in foolishness. They’ve projected their foolish ways and are still doing so. They’ve accomplished little but perhaps it may appear as though they’ve accomplished so much. The battle continues and yest I’m still exploring. There are adversities in which I’ve though about avoiding but why should I Tanikka Paulk do so? It’s my courage in which allows the proceeding to occur. The movements “are continuing” despite what some have tried to project. They’ve taken words and tried to cause intimidation.

I’m too focused to step backwards. They’ve said so much but what have they added. If what is being said isn’t helpful then there is no need to take what is being said in. The purpose was designed for many reasons. The exploring will continue and my purpose isn’t to be destroyed. God has allowed the challenges to occur but there will be gold and silver obtained. There will be more “victories” won. My identity has been challenged. They’ve tried over and over to remove what God has given to the you=Tanikka Paulk. “My hope, my, bravery, my advancement continues.” By: Tanikka Paulk.

The songs are being sung and written. The music is still being accomplished. The tunes in my rhymes are glued together. “They could become angry but what does God have in stored for me=Tanikka Paulk?” By: Tanikka Paulk. I’ve tried to assist and how have they showed their gratitude? They’ve tried to sabotage my journey but God hasn’t allowed the dismantling. No! God “already favored” the journey. My purpose was designed before my birth. He is calling me=Tanikka Paulk to Minister greatness. To project the words already spoken and perhaps there are some willing to listen. There has to be because they’ve repeated what is said.

To be brave is a good thing. To realize that there will be more accomplished by keeping the will. There is still joyfulness because there will be abundance. No matter how many times they’ve tried to decrease there will be increases in the name of Jesus. My praises will continue and my reading of scripture will also continue. The removals they’ve tried to create will backfire on the individuals. “God is an awesome God and He loves every one of His children but He will supply the necessary discipline as well.” by: Tanikka Paulk Moving forward and continuing to seek.

Its a good habit to get into taking time out each day. When I started taking time out each day to reflect on my day ,or situation, it gave me opportunities to rethink on how to handle problems that I am faced with ,rather it be problems with my job,family, or my neighbors. I learned how to weigh out problems, and to think about how I need to react to them in a positive way .I think some of the biggest problems with our society is the fact that people don’t take those time outs when they are going threw stresses and the tension that life brings on. I have noticed for me when I can learn how to find peace when I take time out to refocus, I handle problems better ,and my reactions to others is more mature and respectful. I hope that who ever reads this article can reply with there opinions and share with me how they find peace ,and if they take time out during the day ,and try to reflect on there day .

Visionaries and The Leads Towards the Understanding

When there’s a vision there should be focus on putting to vision to life. Bring a vision from one area to another. One point to another point is extremely important. A person may never know how effective their vision can be unless there’s the courage to place to vision to living. “Life” is here and ready to continue to supply what’s needed for the vision and the purpose. I’ve been very focus on what the vision should look like. All visionaries should be concerned about their vision. There are some afraid to put their vision out there so that the world can view the vision for many reasons.

“A vision is similar to the light shining through the window pane.” (Tanikka Paulk). The focus will continue to be on the movements. I’ve been challenged during many stages of my journey but there is no way that my confidence will leave. The persons continuing to try and discourage visionaries aren’t doing themselves any favors. It’s better to spend time around visionaries and try to focus more on the path at hand. What I’ve learned about the journey is that there will be cynics trying to destroy what God has already ordained. “My gift has been supplied to me=Tanikka Paulk and why are so many after the gift?

God is continuing to walk with me=Tanikka Paulk on my journey. He’s favored me=Tanikka Paulk. The actions in which so many display hasn’t altered this path. Yes, they’ve tried to take the vision away from me=Tanikka Paulk, they’ve tried “to send” all sorts of messages in order to cause discouragement but I’m still continuing on the journey. Amen! “What causes so many to believe that they’re worthy of sabotaging what God creates?” By: Tanikka Paulk. Allowing the visionaries to continue is a good thing. Yes indeed. There is still joyfulness related to that journey. Yes it is this also that. (Tanikka Paulk).

I’ve proven my worth by placing more and more what God has stored up! I’ve been criticized harshly but the criticism hasn’t prevented to journey from “continuing.” They’ve challenged me=Tanikka Paulk so often. The words spoken from the mouths of fools won’t cause me=Tanikka Paulk to believe that a cease should occur. There should be gladness when there are visions. How many are really thrilled when there are movements which can generate prosperity? My mind is continuing to have thoughts of reaching the finish line. Oh yes I’m blessed.

My vision isn’t for everyone. My journey shouldn’t involve all persons. So many may not understand what I’m trying to accomplish here. They’ve been misjudging “the purpose” and one of the reasons could be due to lack of understanding. The attacks projected are attacks in which so many visionaries have received. “God knows what He wants and will see that the purpose is completed. I’ve faced the injustices and there’s still work to be done. “”My mission of that and that of is to remain focused and confident so that there will be further progress occurring.” By: Tanikka Paulk.

Here I am. I’m here trying to continue what God had already declared. The anointed hand will do what’s necessary in order to create more goals. “I’ve achieved and yes there is more to achieve.” (Tanikka Paulk). How many are willing to allow the further achievements to occur? There could be some resistance but no man which means mankind can prevent God from doing God’s work. No man can take God’s position God meaning God the Father of Jesus Christ. The cynics have tried to cause discouragement but there’s the continuation. Thanks.

Some Writers let Their Journey and the Many Reasons why!

There are some writers going through the toughest of experiences. Some have given up on their dreams because they’ve faced aggressive critics. Every person will be criticized at some point. There are some criticized on a daily basis. Why would so many try to discourage others from living their dreams? Writers are creative and innovative. Reading the informative information and books are a great way to unwind and how unsettling when others discourage a writer from moving along.”Without a doubt I’m aware that there will be the cynics trying to disconnect one from the journey but I’m so determined and refuse to give up!” By: Tanikka Paulk

There are some facing the battle between the good and the wicked. The experiences in which I’ve faced continue to puzzle me=Tanikka Paulk. Imagine dealing with some folks continuing to disrupt the work. Imagine coming across some very disturbed beings trying to alter the work, documentation, and steal the identity of a writer. I’m a victim of such. No matter how difficult the journey becomes I’ll continue to make progress. “My purpose” was already designed. That’s why it’s so difficult for mankind to tear my journey apart. Certainly feel sorry for the writers who felt that they had to stop writing because of the disruptive People.

My path was chosen and my position positions were designed. Yes, they’ve tried to break me=Tanikka Paulk. There are troubles but God will continue to lead my way. “Some believe that they’re God and that’s probably why some continue to try to push me=Tanikka Paulk out of my purpose.” By: Tanikka Paulk. Writers shouldn’t give up, writers should feel “confident to continue” with their visions. aspirations, and ideas. I’ve been challenged and some have used extreme measures to try and get me=Tanikka Paulk to stop pursuing my dreams.

The strongest writers will continue going despite what so many continue to dish out. The adversities shouldn’t be a reason to cease. “The purpose is what I’m continuing to be confidently about. Remaining hopeful and remaining just.” By: Tanikka Paulk. They’ve watched my every move and I’m sure there are other writers facing the same or similar battles. That’s why I’m continuing to keep on the “Full Armor of God.” God has a plan and of course mankind will create their own plans. Some have taken my words written and said to come up against me=Tanikka Paulk.

To be a writer means a lot and to be able to continue with my journey demonstrates that God favors me=Tanikka Paulk. It’s so nice when they’re inspired by the gift gifts and talents but are they showing that they’re truly inspired? If persons are continuing to try to disconnect a writer from their journey then they’re demonstrating that their actions are hatefulness. To “love” is to be in a place where there’s peace even when there’s chaos and darkness. “There is light within this chick, There is hope within that chick, That chick is strong enough to continue even when facing numerous challenges.(Tanikka Paulk)” this, that, That= Tanikka Paulk oh and etc. Oh Really? Really!

I’ve discovered and explored they’ll find explore on my profile somewhere. I’m continuing to believe in self I’ve inspired myself.  My path isn’t for everyone. No person would appreciate any person trying to ruin their chances of making a better living. I’ve made it to the top. My profile was on television and although there was bashing I’ve accomplished what some dream of accomplishing. I’m continuing to be harassed but I Tanikka Paulk know that God will see me=Tanikka Paulk through the trials, the experiences, and the  many challenges. He won’t forsake me=Tanikka Paulk.

Thanks to the supportive ones. There are some very gracious. It’s difficult when there are some continuing to disturb my pathway. There will be knuckleheads. The adversity will come and go. “My head continues to bow down in prayer. I’ll continue to read the Bible, praise God and Jesus Christ, keeping the Armor on.”(Tanikka Paulk). What is taken from any writer can be restored. Giving up isn’t an option. The envious ones will receive what God promised. Keep writing writers. There will be the breakthroughs. ‘Restoration is to Come to Tanikka Paulk. Alright! I’m alright and ok. “Mentally writing and I’m “mentally well” enough to continue. “Writers should cherish their gifts and continue even when the storms arrive.

An Effective Measure is to Mentally Tune out
February 23, 2018

When there are many groups of People trying to cause mental disturbances there will need to be measures taken in order to remain sane. Yes, there will be some persons wanting to create insanity for many reasons. One of the reasons could be due to some being overly competitive. Unfortunately there are some refusing to allow or accept what has already been declared. They’ve based their perceptions on what they’ve heard or just what they’ve refused to accept. “There will be some willing to be cooperative no matter what is said or done.” By: Tanikka Paulk

In order to remain functional there will need to be some blocking out. There is no need to continue to focus on the communication which isn’t adding value. If what’s being said is causing disruptions then there should be movements towards the areas which creates upward motions. If any person is so in tuned with the individuals continuously trying to cause upsets then they’ll lag behind. If progress is to occur then there will certainly need to be disconnections in order to achieve the dreams or visions desired.

While on a journey one can find out whether they’ll be accepted or not. Persons continuing to create scenes in order to prevent achievements are doing themselves any favors. It’s best to allow the progression to occur so that there will be more values added. “Whether Persons are Valued or not the Person or Persons should Uplift Self and Continue on The Journey.” By: Tanikka Paulk. The key is to remain focused and think positively. The amount of words can either encourage or discourage a person. The mindset of a person is so important. If there is too much “focus” on what others will say or have said then setback can occur.

If the actions haven’t generated what is needed for the journey then there will need to be some distance presented in order to continue walking the journey. Individuals continuing to make their way in and causing disturbances aren’t creating any “justice” and should be avoided. So many end up losing out because they’ve allowed the persons to create havoc and cause a meltdown within their journey. Continuing to allow the disturbances to occur isn’t beneficial for any journey.

The mind should receive “positive thoughts and information.” There should be continuous discoveries. No amount of words should cause a person to stop living their dream or dreams. There could be some willing to take many risks in order to obtain what the person is seeking. If that’s what they’re trying to do then there will need to be some protective measures in order to proceed. “There will be hecklers and all sorts of folks trying to cause discouragement but it’s up to the visionary whether to feed into what they’re saying.” By: Tanikka Paulk

“There are ways to obtain peace even when there’s chaos.” By: Tanikka Paulk

Bruce Lee Actor The Best
February 8, 2018

Bruce Lee. Artist + Philosopher. Bruce Lee was a famous martial artist, movie star and cultural icon but his philosophy has caught fire around the world with a new generation seeking meaning and consciousness. He continues to teach us how to cultivate our truest selves and be in harmony with the world.

Lee Jun-fan, known professionally as Bruce Lee, was a Hong Kong and American actor, film director, martial artist, martial arts instructor, philosopher and founder of the martial art Jeet Kune Do, one of the wushu or kungfu styles

On this day in 1973, the actor and martial-arts expert Bruce Lee dies in Los Angeles at age 32 from a brain edema possibly caused by a reaction to a prescription painkiller. During Lee’s all-too-brief career, he became a movie star in Asia and, posthumously, in America.

Jun Fan (Bruce) Lee was born on November 27, 1940, in San Francisco, California. At the time, his father, a Chinese opera star, was on tour in the United States. The family moved back to Hong Kong in 1941. Growing up, Lee was a child actor who appeared in some 20 Chinese films; he also studied dancing and trained in the Wing Chun style of gung fu (also known as “kung fu”). In 1959, Lee returned to America, where he eventually attended the University of Washington and opened a martial-arts school in Seattle. In 1964, Lee married Linda Emery, who in 1965 gave birth to Brandon Lee, the first of the couple’s two children. In 1966, the Lees moved to Los Angeles and Bruce appeared on the television program The Green Hornet (1966-1967), playing the Hornet’s acrobatic sidekick Kato. Lee also appeared in karate tournaments around the United States and continued to teach martial arts to private clients including the actor Steve McQueen.

In search of better acting roles than Hollywood was offering, Lee returned to Hong Kong in the early 1970s and successfully established himself as a star in Asia with the action movies The Big Boss (1971) and The Way of the Dragon (1972), which he wrote, directed and starred in. Lee’s next film, Enter the Dragon, was released in the United States by Hollywood studio Warner Bros. in August 1973. Tragically, Lee had died one month earlier, on July 20, in Hong Kong, after suffering a brain edema believed to be caused by an adverse reaction to a pain medication. Enter the Dragon was a box-office hit, eventually grossing more than $200 million, and Lee posthumously became a movie icon in America.

Lee’s body was returned to Seattle, where he was buried. His sudden death at the young age of 32 led to rumors and speculation about the cause of his demise. One theory held that Lee had been murdered by Chinese gangsters while another rumor circulated that the actor had been the victim of a curse. The family-curse theory resurfaced when Lee’s 28-year-old son Brandon, who had followed in his father’s footsteps to become an actor, died in an accidental shooting on the set of the movie The Crow on March 31, 1991. The younger Lee was buried next to his father at Seattle’s Lake View Cemetery.

A Brief History of Tattoos Are A Part of Life
February 8, 2018

The word tattoo comes from the Tahitian “tatu” which means “to mark something.” It is arguably claimed that tattooing has existed since 12,000 years BC. … Tattoos around the wrist and fingers were believed to ward away illness. Throughout history tattoos have signified membership in a clan or society.

he word tattoo comes from the Tahitian “tatu” which means “to mark something.”

It is arguably claimed that tattooing has existed since 12,000 years BC. The purpose of tattooing has varies from culture to culture and its place on the time line. But there are commonalties that prevail form the earliest known tattoos to those being done on college students on Telegraph Ave. in Berkeley.

Tattoos have always had an important role in ritual and tradition. In Borneo, women tattooed their symbols on their forearm indicating their particular skill. If a woman wore a symbol indicating she was a skilled weaver, her status as prime marriageable material was increased. Tattoos around the wrist and fingers were believed to ward away illness. Throughout history tattoos have signified membership in a clan or society. Even today groups like the Hells Angels tattoo their particular group symbol. TV and movies have used the idea of a tattoo indication membership in a secret society numerous times. It has been believed that the wearer of an image calls the spirit of that image. The ferocity of a tiger would belong to the tattooed person. That tradition holds true today shown by the proliferation of images of tigers, snakes, and bird of prey.

In recorded history, the earliest tattoos can be found in Egypt during the time of the construction of the great pyramids (It undoubtedly started much earlier). When the Egyptians expanded their empire, the art of tattooing spread as well. The civilizations of Crete, Greece, Persia, and Arabia picked up and expanded the art form. Around 2000 BC tattooing spread to China.

The Greeks used tattooing for communication among spies. Markings identified the spies and showed their rank. Romans marked criminals and slaves. This practice is still carried on today. The Ainu people of western Asia used tattooing to show social status. Girls coming of age were marked to announce their place in society, as were the married women. The Ainu are noted for introducing tattoos to Japan where it developed into a religious and ceremonial rite. In Borneo, women were the tattooists. It was a cultural tradition. They produced designs indicating the owners station in life and the tribe he belonged to. Kayan women had delicate arm tattoos which looked like lacy gloves. Dayak warriors who had “taken a head” had tattoos on their hands. The tattoos garnered respect and assured the owners status for life. Polynesians developed tattoos to mark tribal communities, families, and rank. They brought their art to New Zealand and developed a facial style of tattooing called Moko which is still being used today. There is evidence that the Mayan, Incas, and Aztecs used tattooing in the rituals. Even the isolated tribes in Alaska practiced tattooing, their style indicating it was learned from the Ainu.

In the west, early Britons used tattoos in ceremonies. The Danes, Norse, and Saxons tattooed family crests (a tradition still practiced today). In 787 AD, Pope Hadrian banned tattooing. It still thrived in Britain until the Norman Invasion of 1066. The Normans disdained tattooing. It disappeared from Western culture from the 12th to the 16th centuries.

While tattooing diminished in the west, it thrived in Japan. At first, tattoos were used to mark criminals. First offenses were marked with a line across the forehead. A second crime was marked by adding an arch. A third offense was marked by another line. Together these marks formed the Japanese character for “dog”. It appears this was the original “Three strikes your out” law. In time, the Japanese escalated the tattoo to an aesthetic art form. The Japanese body suit originated around 1700 as a reaction to strict laws concerning conspicuous consumption. Only royalty were allowed to wear ornate clothing. As a result of this, the middle class adorned themselves with elaborate full body tattoos. A highly tattooed person wearing only a loin cloth was considered well dressed, but only in the privacy of their own home.

William Dampher is responsible for re-introducing tattooing to the west. He was a sailor and explorer who traveled the South Seas. In 1691 he brought to London a heavily tattooed Polynesian named Prince Giolo, Known as the Painted Prince. He was put on exhibition , a money making attraction, and became the rage of London. It had been 600 years since tattoos had been seen in Europe and it would be another 100 years before tattooing would make it mark in the West.

In the late 1700s, Captain Cook made several trips to the South Pacific. The people of London welcomed his stories and were anxious to see the art and artifacts he brought back. Returning form one of this trips, he brought a heavily tattooed Polynesian named Omai. He was a sensation in London. Soon, the upper- class were getting small tattoos in discreet places. For a short time tattooing became a fad.

What kept tattooing from becoming more widespread was its slow and painstaking procedure. Each puncture of the skin was done by hand the ink was applied. In 1891, Samuel O’Rtiely patented the first electric tattooing machine. It was based on Edison’s electric pen which punctured paper with a needle point. The basic design with moving coils, a tube and a needle bar, are the components of today’s tattoo gun. The electric tattoo machine allowed anyone to obtain a reasonably priced, and readily available tattoo. As the average person could easily get a tattoo, the upper classes turned away from it.

By the turn of the century, tattooing had lost a great deal of credibility. Tattooists worked the sleazier sections of town. Heavily tattooed people traveled with circuses and “freak Shows.” Betty Brodbent traveled with Ringling Brothers Circus in the 1930s and was a star attraction for years.

The cultural view of tattooing was so poor for most of the century that tattooing went underground. Few were accepted into the secret society of artists and there were no schools to study the craft. There were no magazines or associations. Tattoo suppliers rarely advertised their products. One had to learn through the scuttlebutt where to go and who to see for quality tattoos.

The birthplace of the American style tattoo was Chatham Square in New York City. At the turn of the century it was a seaport and entertainment center attracting working-class people with money. Samuel O’Riely cam from Boston and set up shop there. He took on an apprentice named Charlie Wagner. After O’Reily’s death in 1908, Wagner opened a supply business with Lew Alberts. Alberts had trained as a wallpaper designer and he transferred those skills to the design of tattoos. He is noted for redesigning a large portion of early tattoo flash art.

While tattooing was declining in popularity across the country, in Chatham Square in flourished. Husbands tattooed their wives with examples of their best work. They played the role of walking advertisements for their husbands’ work. At this time, cosmetic tattooing became popular, blush for cheeks, coloured lips, and eyeliner. With world war I, the flash art images changed to those of bravery and wartime icons.

In the 1920s, with prohibition and then the depression, Chathma Square lost its appeal. The center for tattoo art moved to Coney Island. Across the country, tattooists opened shops in areas that would support them, namely cities with military bases close by, particularly naval bases. Tattoos were know as travel markers. You could tell where a person had been by their tattoos.

After world war II, tattoos became further denigrated by their associations with Marlon Brando type bikers and Juvenile delinquents. Tattooing had little respect in American culture. Then, in 1961 there was an outbreak of hepatitis and tattooing was sent reeling on its heels.

Though most tattoo shops had sterilization machines, few used them. Newspapers reported stories of blood poisoning, hepatitis, and other diseases. The general population held tattoo parlors in disrepute. At first, the New York City government gave the tattoos an opportunity to form an association and self- regulate, but tattooists are independent and they were not able to organize themselves. A health code violation went into effect and the tattoo shops at Times Square and Coney Island were shut down. For a time, it was difficult to get a tattoo in New York. It was illegal and tattoos had a terrible reputation. Few people wanted a tattoo. The better shops moved to Philadelphia and New Jersey where it was still legal.

In the late 1960s, the attitude towards tattooing changed. Much credit can be given to Lyle Tuttle. He is a handsome, charming, interesting and knows how to use the media. He tattooed celebrities, particularly women. Magazines and television went to Lyle to get information about this ancient art form.

Toady, tattooing is making a strong comeback. It is more popular and accepted than it has ever been. All classes of people seek the best tattoo artists. This rise in popularity has placed tattoists in the category of “fine artist”. The tattooist has garnered a respect not seen for over 100 years. Current artists combine the tr5adition of tattooing with their personal style creating unique and phenomenal body art. With the addition of new inks, tattooing has certainly reached a new plateau.

The Walking Dead The Best
February 8, 2018

Based on the comic book series written by Robert Kirkman, this gritty drama portrays life in the weeks and months following a zombie apocalypse. Led by police officer Rick Grimes, his family and a group of other survivors find themselves constantly on the move in search of a safe and secure home. But the pressure each day to stay alive sends many in the group to the deepest depths of human cruelty, and Rick discovers that the overwhelming fear of the survivors can be more deadly than the zombies walking among them.

The brand new trailer for The Walking Dead season 8 has teased the dramatic moments to come when the series returns later this month.

It seems that Carl’s impending death – which is confirmed to arrive in the very next episode following the shock reveal in the midseason finale’s climax – will only scratch the surface of what’s to come as the war against The Saviour grows ever more complicated.

“How you stopped fighting: it was right – it still is; you can still be like that again,” Carl tells a devastated Rick (Andrew Lincoln) as he succumbs to his walker bite, desperate to impart some wisdom to his father before breathing his last breath.

Referencing the departure from the comic book series the show is based upon, in which Carl replaces Rick as the group’s leader, Carl states: “Before Mum died, she told me I was going to beat this world… you will.”

Other things fans can expect when the series resumes its eighth season are tearful reunions – Daryl can be seen with Maggie and Carol at the Hilltop – and a showdown between The Saviours and the Jadis-led Scavengers.

One moment that has fans worried, however, is the scene which shows Michonne (Danai Gurira) struggling to escape a horde of walkers in the Junkyard pit. With Gurira scoring rave reviews in groundbreaking new Marvel film Black Panther, could the AMC series be about to lose one of its major players?

And then there’s the ever-present Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) who is infuriated that the people of Alexandria found a way out following his assault on the community in the midseason finale.
