Looking Within

As I spoke with a street artist yesterday I  was reminded of the source of truth, inspiration, and knowledge for personal living.  As humans being in this society we are conditioned to look without or outside ourselves for enlightenment and understanding about matters of our lives.

However, it’s important to understand the details that we search for will arise from within us if we allow them to arise.

The people that we encounter, the books we read and the truth we hear from the spiritual wells of others are only to serve as reminders and confirmation of our own truth. In this time-space reality of Earth, we forget our true essence and power and have to be reminded of our brilliance and magnificence as a reflection of the Creator, Universal Power,  and The Source.

As we are reminded, it is up to us to determine what we do with the revelations we receive as we create our reality. Whatever we choose to do or not do, (respond or not respond) in the moment, is shaping the reality we exist in.

Family, follow your heart, the heart’s vibration has great significance in our journey. Our personal intuition and gut reactions should never be ignored. Our intuition is our own personal navigation system, even when the direction may not be clear about where or what we are headed toward. The contrast in our experiences will keep us on the right path. All unfolds just as it should. Remain sensitive to your ancestors or spirit guides prompting.  Welcome their activity in your life. They are always for you! They want to see you succeed. As you stand in your own truth and honor your own voice they will always have your back. Always remember every being’s path is unique. It’s supposed to look different! Its supposed to be different! That is what makes our journey’s magically beautiful.

It is my greatest hope that this provided you with what you need today as you move forward on your abundant path. Thank you so much for reading. Thank you, Ancestors, for prompting me to share the post. I am grateful for your assistance and guidance in my life. I’m sending love to you all.

In peace and light,

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.
