The Europeans took upon themselves the responsibility of civilizing us. In their eyes our differences in comparison to them were barbaric—we were less than human. We were heathens in need of a Savior they were glad to provide. How else could they justify their actions and feeling like a savage themselves other than by convincing themselves that their violently horrendous actions toward us were necessary to save our souls? Dr. John Henrik Clarke stated, “Religion is the organization of spirituality into something that became the hand maiden of conquerors. Nearly all religions were brought to people by conquerors, and used as the framework to control their minds.” Dr. Joy de Gury Leary shares life changing knowledge in this video.

Authentic thoughts are thoughts that are genuine and sincerely expressed. Authentic thoughts reverberate with other authentic individuals so they have an irresistible urge to ponder and or respectfully respond from their own unique perspective.

Express yourself. Post your authentic thoughts.

In peace and love,
