Culture?

In American culture we are taught that culture encompasses celebrations, holidays, food, and dress etc. Culture is a means to the end. The end result is to connect with loved ones and express appreciation for those aspects that make ones culture unique. On the contrary, in African centered consciousness we understand that culture is an individual’s understanding of the natural laws. Dance, drumming, and rituals are merely the tools used to teach the culture to myself so that I  learn the rich and powerful way of life of my ancestors, the forces of nature, the cosmos–how they work, and ultiamtely how I should benefit from them. A by product of the dance, drumming, and ritual is the connection with my brothers and sisters and celebration of family. Inspired by Professor James Small

What’s Next Fight or Flight?

“A riot, is the language of the unheard.” Martin Luther King Jr. 

King also said …..

…I think America must see that riots do not develop out of thin air. Certain conditions continue to exist in our society which must be condemned as vigorously as we condemn riots. But in the final analysis, a riot is the language of the unheard. And what is it that America has failed to hear? It has failed to hear that the plight of the Negro poor has worsened over the last few years. It has failed to hear that the promises of freedom and justice have not been met. And it has failed to hear that large segments of white society are more concerned about tranquility and the status quo than about justice, equality, and humanity. And so in a real sense our nation’s summers of riots are caused by our nation’s winters of delay. And as long as America postpones justice, we stand in the position of having these recurrences of violence and riots over and over again. Social justice and progress are the absolute guarantors of riot prevention.

Excerpt from The Other America speech at Stanford University April 14, 1967

We have had much symbolic change including the removal of segregation signs and the change of law. However, do signs change the hearts of people? Do they change a persons perception? Can a sign soothe fear that cradles a man’s soul? If you don’t make the law you cannot enforce the law. Therefore, it makes no difference what the law states. I implore you to be honest. Has anything substantively changed in race relations for the people in America? Dr. Frances Cress Welsing will tell you absolutely not! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QDCk4s0Cof4 . Amos Wilson helps us to understand that what we call success today was already accomplished long ago. Don’t believe the hype! The so called success you see today are nothing new.

Are we really in a post racial society? Look around. Ask someone who has awakened from their deep sleep. Ask someone who is not placated by milk toast messages. Talk to someone who is not bamboozled by relentless messages of propaganda.

What’s the answer? What’s next? Who will transition before their time? Where and when will the next riot explode! When will we hear about another unarmed black man (or woman) being killed? What will it take to make America truly great for the first time????????? When will we ALL feel safe as Americans.

We cannot change what we are not willing to acknowledge! Hate is hate! Discrimination is discrimination! White supremacy is white supremacy! Prejudice is prejudice! Systematic racism is systematic racism!  White privilege is white privilege! Call it what it is!

If we want to make a change we must be willing to see our part in perpetuating the problem. The fabric of this country reeks with guiltly stench of horrific atrocities. When! When! When!  How will the man or the woman in your mirror make a difference? “For evil to succeed, all is need is for good men to do nothing” Martin Luther King Jr.

What needs to happen next?   Do we fight in our own way for justice and peace or do we take flight back to our corners that present an illusion of safety. We are not free until we are all free!

Post an answer! We need solutions! Share your authentic thought. Let’s be the change we want to see! Let’s wake up to righteousness. Whether we are willing to admit it or not the struggle continues.

Myth vs Truth

 

Jesus pics

Most of the Bible is allegory and myth. However, myth does not have a negative connotation or meaning as many think. Historians like John Henrik Clark (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RY8G47rTRLc) and Ashra Kewsi (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OJAbxsbI5ms) say much of the patriarchs like Abraham, Moses, Joshua and David etc. in the Bible are mythological.  Read Galatians 4:21-24 in the King James Version.

Myth is not meant to be an exact historical account. Careful study of some biblical myths proves that the details of the myths are chronologically out of sync. Thus, its not an actual historical account.  However, just becasue a myth is what it is, it does not minimize the boundless value that is inherent in the myths or allegorical accounts in the Bible. Brother Jabari teaches (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HSRjFkWIuv0&t=2044s) that history is what someone did once and myth is something that you should always be doing. Brother Anthony Browder (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BRkN88x7tBU) plainly teaches that there is truth in the Bible but the Bible stories are not necessarily historically true.

When we as Africans take the time to study original African myths we can tap into true spiritual power inherent in the myth and also move to a higher vibration that is not present when we study merely from a historical perspective. There is some benefit from studying the Bible myths with the right perspective. The stories in the Bible are actually African myths that have been twisted and told through a different cultural lens. However, let us do more than study the myths of the Bible. Let’s study African mythology. As we study thoroughly our understanding of the African myth should acknowledge and give due homage to the contributions of our African Ancestors.

Studying African myths improves and elevates the quality of our lives and assists us in living according to Maat which is the overriding force that governs everything in the universe for virtuous living for African people. The principles of Maat are balance, reciprocity, law, order, and righteousness. These principles are evident within our divine nature. As we tap into the spiritual power of African myths our divinity will resurrect and shine forth.

 

My Authentic Truth

I have personally seen and touched historical records on the walls in ancient Kemet that display the myths of our African ancestors.  Those myths hold truth that will help us to evolve to become a divine force in this world.

A fulfilling life of abundance is available to all African people on the continent of Africa and in the diaspora. There is abundance in African myths. These myths contain truth for our people. The abundance I speak of in this particular context is not a life defined as society does with the illusion of the “American Dream” as an accumulation of things and a life of luxury. The abundant life I speak about is one which brings the overwhelming contentment of knowledge of self as a divine being to which no thing compares!

Our ancestors left a record for us in Kemet (Egypt) and throughout the Motherland. African historians have traveled on our behalf where we may not physically be able to travel.  They have lectured, written books, and done the research for the benefit of the entire African family. If you are open and willing you can live the life you were sent to this Earth to live the information is available. I made the choice to wake up from my slumber when I first tapped into the spiritual power in the African myths and I am determined to stay woke. Simply reading a historical account– memorizing and parroting what happened is like taking the blue pill but digging deep into an African myth brings transformation for the African. It’s like taking the red pill. I took the red pill of truth and I have absolutely no regrets! I want the divinity in me to resurrect and shine forth.

Universal Laws

Below is information we should have learned in school. If we had, the quality of our lives as a society would be extremely better.  Click on the underlined words to find more information. These laws are the beginning of wisdom.

The Law of Divine Oneness – everything is connected to everything else. What we think, say, do and believe will have a corresponding effect on others and the universe around us.

Law of Vibration – Everything in the Universe moves, vibrates and travels in circular patterns, the same principles of vibration in the physical world apply to our thoughts, feelings, desires and wills in the Etheric world. Each sound, thing, and even thought has its own vibrational frequency, unique unto itself.

Law of Action
– Must be employed in order for us to manifest things on earth. We must engage in actions that supports our thoughts dreams, emotions and words

Law of Correspondence – This Universal Law states that the principles or laws of physics that explain the physical world energy, Light, vibration, and motion have their corresponding principles in the etheric or universe “As above, so below”

Law of Cause and Effect – Nothing happens by chance or outside the Universal Laws.. Every Action(including thought) has a reaction or consequence “We reap what we sow”

Law of Compensation– The Universal Law is the Law of Cause and effect applied to blessings and abundance that are provided for us. The visible effects of our deeds are given to us in gifts, money, inheritances, friendships and blessings.

Law of Attraction – Demonstrates how we create the things, events and people that come into our lives Our thoughts, feelings, words, and actions produce energies which, in turn attract like energies. Negative energies attract negative energies and positive energies attract positive energies.

The Law of Perpetual Transmutation of Energy
– All persons have within them the power to change the conditions of their lives. Higher vibrations consume and transform lower ones; thus, each of us can change the energies in our lives by understanding the Universal Laws and applying the principles in such a way as to effect change

Law of Relativity – Each person will receive as series of problems (Tests of Initiation/Lessons) for the purpose of strengthening the light within each of these tests/lessons to be a challenge and remain connected to our hearts when proceeding to solve the problems. This law also teaches us to compare our problems to others problem into its proper perspective. No matter how bad we perceive our situation to be, There is always someone who is in a worse position. Its all relative.

Law of Polarity
– Everything is on a continuum and has and opposite. We can suppress and transform undesirable thoughts by concentrating on the opposite pole. It is the law of mental vibrations.

Law of Rhythm – Everything vibrates and moves to certain rhythms.. These rhythms establish seasons, cycles, stages of development, and patterns. Each cycle reflects the regularity of God’s Universe. Masters know how to rise above negative parts of a cycle by never getting to excited or allowing negative things to penetrate their consciousness.

Law of Gender
– The law of gender manifests in all things as masculine and feminine. It is this law that governs what we know as creation. The law of gender manifests in the animal kingdom as sex. This law decrees everything in nature is both male and female. Both are required for life to exist.

In peace and love,
