Peace! I hope you enjoyed my last article I posted about "Venus is 67,000,000 miles from the Sun". Many Gods & Earths overlook some of the "unassuming" Lessons that we have and short change themselves from acquiring some very valuable learning tools that apply to life. Mathematics is more than doing simple addition tricks with alpha-numeric concepts, it’s a Mathematical Theology from a God-Centered perspective that permeates all aspects of our way of life. Most of the time this is non-verbally communicated. Now let me give you some insight into some thought's I've been dealing with lately:
The 5% Album by Lord Jamar- I’ve been listening to it and I think it serves a good purpose for the youth. If they can quote Chris Brown, Young Joc, and other Artists then they can learn to quote Lord Jamar too. At least in the long run it will be useful when they grow to understand what they’ve been programmed to think! On the flip side, I’ve been thinking about the "Commercialization" of our Culture. Also the fact that he had someone like Sadat X. on a song called "Study your Lessons" which I’m skeptical about! Well, if Sadat doesn’t know his Lessons I feel bad for him if he comes in tune with the Gods because they will "bomb him" (correct him) about it along with the fact that he has an "X" at the end of his name! This is because The Nation of Gods and Earths is very critical and guarded about our way of life. The reason something like an album or even book hasn’t been done is not because nobody could do it. The reason is because we place high regard for doing impeccable research and being right & exact! The slightest misinformation puts you in "the boy that cried wolf" category until shown & proven otherwise! The Number 1 being symbolic to Knowledge speaks for itself!
HipHop Festival 2006- On the 19th of August I participated in our Annual HipHop Festival as a Volunteer and also by doing a Workshop entitled "Word iz Bond". It was Peace and I had the opportunity to build with about 30 youth ages 7-16 about the value of words and how people make themselves rich from our ignorance. One thing that really got them going is when I explained that many Professions are based upon your ignorance such as Auto Mechanic’s, Doctor’s, Lawyer’s and also Ministers! I built about how if you knew what they knew then you wouldn’t have to go to them or pay them to do what you could do yourself. I emphasized that the more knowledge you gain the more self sufficient you become and the less people can take advantage of you because your not ignorant. Now the highlight of the Festival was "Roxanne Shante" who spoke for about an hour. She was droppin’ jewels and I’m sure everybody got alot out of what she built upon which was various subjects that related to our concept of Love, Hell or Right. Love, Hell or Right basically means: The things that you commit to with your heart go through circumstances of temperance & purification to determine if it’s just and true.
The Color of the Cross- Check out this link to: "The Color of the Cross". It’s a movie coming out in the Autumn about Jesus and it’s played by a Black Man! Not no swarthy olive complexioned Semitic looking Man but a strait up thick lipped, dark-skinned wooly haired "Black" Man. Mary and other characters are Black too and it’s definitely gonna create some dialogue and have a dynamic impact upon America. I already know how many Caucasians are going to react I’m just waiting for these apologetic, uncle tom ass church negroes to come out talking that "It doesn’t matter" bullshit because they’re afraid to upset Massah’! One of my people even predicted a boycott of the movie spearheaded by these ignorant muthafucka’s and exacerbated by their Caucasian "Financer’s"! All I can say is it’s gonna be beautiful to see and at the same time sickening when we start to see our own people shooting it down!! For those who know the real, there will be only so many ignorant conversations that you’ll be able to turn a deaf ear to before you need to set the record strait, so be prepared to bomb a muthafucka’ out the frame (with a smile & civilized sensibility of course!).
Unknown- The Wisdom of any/all Culture(s) is indicative of it’s ability to minimize "Unknown’s" that present themselves along the course of a person’s life and solve problems. In symbolic language 2=Wisdom, 4=Culture and the 24th Letter in our Supreme Alphabet is "X" (the "Unknown"). As I get older I find myself consolidating, economizing and preserving my time, energy and resources better! Through discernment (Wisdom) and implementing this way of life (Culture) I have been able to effectively sidestep "it’s always something" types of situations (the "Unknown")! If the Culture you live (yes your religion is an expression of it!) is like faulty Acme Products Wile E. Coyote uses then you need to think about investing in something that works. It’s nothing worst then seeing people foolishly using methodologies that died 2,000 years ago simply because it’s a so-called "Tradition". Fool, at one point in our chronology that shit was actually "Innovative" and not Traditional! That’s very unwise and in the process they evoke an entire array of unknown’s that can only be solved using modern methodologies because these unknown’s exist in a contemporary context! This is the sole reason that People get old because they’re weathered by the life that constantly changes (evolves) around them!
The Nation of Gods and Earths- I haven’t been amongst a "General" body of Gods and Earths for quite some time and I definitely enjoy the Peace of mind from being around some of the bullshit "Religiosity" I see people dealing with. Many of the God’s from my Family Tree are very introspective about living this Culture and I’ve grown to see why. Part of the reason is the fact that many Gods & Earths mistake talking for teaching. As I’ve mentioned earlier, our Culture is primarily "non-verbally communicated". Just because a person quotes Lessons backwards & forwards, may have walked with this Older God/Earth, can recite the history of The Father, or has had 120 Lessons for 20 years doesn’t validate you in my eyes! That's the way I was taught, my Enlightener was taught, his Enlightener was taught and so forth. If your life doesn’t express what "you claim you know" then you on some strait-up bullshit and I don’t have time to get together with a bunch of fake muthafucka’s who want to boost they Ego! Shit I could go to church for that! When I see "MY" Culture that is supposed to be Free lived out Fanatically Religious and Grossly Nationalistic it turns me (and other’s) off! I don’t even want to be around no shit like that! When all the talk has ceased and we are finished espousing our "Self Styled Wisdom" what’s left Gods and Earths? An image of either Righteousness or Devilishment!
