Reconnect. It’s Worth It!

Racist acts of colonialism and slavery have successfully made many of US as African-Americans and people of color, ignorantly despise and embarrassed by our home land of origin. Malcolm X made a profound statement.

“You can’t hate the roots of the tree without ending up hating the tree. You can’t hate your origin without ending up hating yourself. You can’t hate the land, your motherland, the place that you come from, and we can’t hate Africa without ending up hating ourselves. The Black man in the Western Hemisphere—North America, Central America, South America, and in the Caribbean—is the best example of how one can be made, skillfully, to hate himself that you can find anywhere on this earth.”

If you have no interest at all in reconnecting to Africa nor concern for its struggle, success, or failure understand its by design. The mission of racism white supremacy has been accomplished in your life!

I was deeply moved when I watched the video below. Listen to the first ten minutes of this video (again at 18 mins. in) and you will see one example of the importance of knowing where you come from and reconnecting with home.  The visceral and self-knowledge benefits waiting for us to tap into are literally endless!!!!  Be open to reconnecting in your own way. Our ancestors are waiting to rejoice. If you are already open, I give thanks, let’s do our part to share the significant beauty and richness of our home.

Be encouraged!

Freedom

As I channel surfed through the stations looking for something to watch the youthful Jurnee Smollett-Bell caught my attention. I enjoy her work as an adult. The Great Debaters and the Underground Series are awesome. She seems to choose roles that speak to the struggle of what it means to be Black in America. Being Black in America, her portrayals interest me. I assumed the movie was broadcasting as a precursor to Black History month.

Although I admit I have grown weary of the shallow recognition of African-American contributions to the progress of civilization in North America and around the world during Black History Month, I could not resist watching the end of this movie about Bloody Sunday.

Jurnee had several singing parts during the movie. She would often passionately lead the freedom fighting selections with a bright smile that gleamed with determination for the cause to end discrimination and segregation. Additionally, the movie featured the clip by Lyndon B. Johnson about voting rights. He announced:

“At times history and fate meet at a single time in a single place to shape a turning point in man’s unending search for freedom,” Johnson said that night. “So it was at Lexington and Concord. So it was a century ago at Appomattox. So it was last week in Selma, Alabama.”……….

Toward the very end as they began to take their final march across Edmund Pettus Bridge, Cheyenne, Jurnee’s character, announced with great enthusiasm, she was ready to fight for freedom! It was then that I thought…..man’s unending search for freedom.

I realize what the horrendous  state of America was for African- Americans was then and now. Why are we searching for the freedom we already possess. I know for certain that African-Americans were born free regardless of our zip code and as those counted in the diaspora!!!! I ask you today, why is it necessary to fight for freedom we already possess. The way we choose to “be” in America or any where in the world is up to us. Is freedom for African-Americans about breaking down walls, changing laws and protesting against unfair rules or is freedom in our individual minds? Cheyenne wanted to take back the freedom of her people. Is it possible then and even now that we are fighting to get something from others that “they” do not possess?

Everything is mental. As a man thinks so is he. The objects of knowledge have no existence except in the mind of the perceiver. We already have every thing we need to be successful in spite of the many adverse circumstances that surrounds us. We’ve marched, protested, suffered, and died. Yet the struggle continues. Nothing we  have done in the freedom fight has had in-depth long-term effects. I’m not saying deny whatever responsibility one has committed to. I am saying, let’s look within ourselves and gain knowledge of self. Then we will find a path that leads outside the matrix. What would happen if we began to do one thing differently–decide to exist differently as an individual? What would happen if we declared our freedom and then saw ourselves free with our minds eye everyday? I know it sounds too easy but its better than begging, whining and complaining from the sidelines as spectators of our own destruction.

Are We All Connected?

THE LAW OF ONENESS

Everything is connected to everything else. What we think, say, do, and believe will have a corresponding effect on others and the world around us.

All of humanity and God are one. We are always connected to force of God because the energy of God is everywhere at once, and permeates through all things living or material, as well as the knowledge of God is infinite and always available to us.  Each soul is part of God’s energy.

Everything that exists seen and unseen are connected to each other, inseparable from each other to a field of divine oneness.  Divine all-knowing, the matrix, pure consciousness or universal mind energy, sometimes also known as Life Force or God.  Everything is one.

My Authentic Truth:

Today I took some time to ponder the universal law of oneness. Universal means that it is sacred and spiritual. Outside the seven Hermetic Principles one may not even say there is a universal law of oneness. For the sake of the post, just say you agree with the law of oneness. Then further, what does this mean for our society? What does that mean for the individual? How  should one act, think, or engage other people? I’m still in search of understanding and truth.

One explanation I heard for oneness is as follows: Every person around me is me but in a different time and space. I am actually another yourself.  This means I can see myself in the people around me. There are similarities we possess with those we love and even our enemies. Both are in our life due to our own invitation by attraction. We connect or attract because of the reflection of ourselves that we see in others. We are from one divine source but have different journeys.

Powerful words!

The questions for me then are how responsible are we for the problems that exist in society?  Are brutal rapist and murders drawn to us because in some way we attract them? Should I see a reflection of  myself in the very one who has betrayed me because I was once a betrayer? Do I make situations worse when I take vengeance against my enemies? How should awareness of the law of oneness influence our relationships with others? Maybe if I vibrate at higher level when I see myself in others (seeing wanted or unwanted) I can choose to be light, love, and peace regardless.

Are We Delusional?

 

Image result for confused

I’ve been pondering a quote from the book  “History of Religion: An Overview of the most Important People and Events in: The Worlds Religions, Mythologies, & History of the Church (Christianity, … Buddhism, Jewish History, Hinduism Book 1)” by Michael J. Stewart.

“There are three main groups of theories of religion. According to the first, religion is an invention of one (usually the ruling and privileged) group of people with a purpose to protect the privileges of that same group of individuals. According to another group theory, religion is an existential characteristic of every human being. Finally, according to the third group theory, religion is just a human tendency to the superstition that came as a result of insufficient knowledge of the true nature of things.”

I had a recent experience that reminded me of the quote I had been pondering. It caused me to think about how so many of us are greatly influenced by religion in this society. Our personal religious orientation becomes the lens for every perspective we hold and the framework in which we mold our experiences. The questions I ask then are how often are we ill-informed, misguided, and mislead by cultural norms, and religious affiliations? Are culture and religion infallible? Are science and universal law ever a factor to the devoutly religious? When things go as we hoped in the face of despair is the reason always Allah, God, Jesus, or what ever Deity we personally honor? Is it possible that other factors can influence the phenomenon in our lives? Is there not a cause?

Let’s consider the definition of delusional. Then answer the question below.

Image result for confused
de·lu·sion·al
adjective
  1. characterized by or holding idiosyncratic beliefs or impressions that are contradicted by reality or rational argument, typically
    “hospitalization for schizophrenia and delusional paranoia”
    • based on or having faulty judgment; mistaken.
      “their delusional belief in the project’s merits never wavers”
  2.  as a symptom of mental disorder.

Is a person delusional when their cultural or religious affiliation, without the consideration of any other factors, is the principle reference that governs the choices of his or her life?  

My authentic thought: 

We do ourselves a grave disservice when we allow ourselves to be limited by religious dogma. Being part of organized religion for a season in my life has had some good benefits. However, as I evolved, I resolved to be open to truth however it comes to me. Further, in my opinion, it is imprudent for me to ignore the reality of science and nature. While I willingly admit I don’t know everything, and never will, I am not quick to credit or discredit a deity or evil force for the phenomenon in my life.

Knowing certain truths grounds me so that I am no longer deluded by “beliefs” for events I cannot explain. Nonetheless, I respectfully understand that each person has a different journey and my opinion is irrelevant. I commit wholeheartedly to passionately walk out my own journey. I encourage others to do the same.

New Perspective on Prayer

Rather than praying to get what would happen if prayer for you became an acceptance of what is???? What if you could have what you described? You can have it if you can see it. We see what we describe.

The Law of Attraction is a secondary law. The Law of vibration is primary!

The Origin of Hip Hop: KRS-ONE Knowledge Reigns Supreme

The popular music we hear on the radio dressed as rap and what many people are attempting to do in most cases is NOT Hip Hop. It’s only rap music. Rap music is just words spoken to the beat of music. The mumble music of today, as some have called it,   is nothing like Hip Hop in its origin. In fact, Hip Hop in its inception was genuine, liberation, creativity, and passion. Hip Hop was the voice of ancestors speaking truth to the masses.
