Peace! One things for sure I’ve had a very beautiful Summer! Although my Idealistic ass would have liked to cee some things happen more progressively.. , it is what it is. The Best Part about this Summer was undoubtedly “my own good time” with my Young Queens. As we enter into my favorite Season (Autumn!) here’s a few things I’ve learned over the Summer;
“When this mist strikes.. , it becomes.. in form.. .” (8/1-40)
The “heat” really brings out a lot in people because its’ never too cold for them to show they ass! The Tale about "The Ant and the Grasshopper" also comes to light. While partying like there is no tomorrow, people forget that the cold is right around the corner and heating bills will once again be outta control (at least here in WNY they are)! Aside from getting more Vitamin D from the sunrays, I treat the Summer (and every Season) “Seasonless”, meaning “I control the Weather, the Weather don’t control me”! This humble perspective insures that I don’t arrogantly (and ignorantly!) write a check in the Summer my ass can’t cash in the Winter. The cold current usually brings with it a Seasonal Depression that people experience and they find themselves seeking a sense of Renewal in order to Revive their Sense of Spirituality. This Grasshopper Syndrome is a Psychological Ebb and Flow that people without a foundation naturally go through. What these Hedonists don’t realize is that pleasure seeking adheres to the same Organic Law that every living thing adheres to because all of it involves Consciousness (Creative Force). In nature there always comes a time when something isn’t ripe and one’s overwhelming desire to taste a certain fruit cannot change that! Without this realistic view, a Hedonist will find themselves becoming “A Savage in their pursuit of Happiness” (17/1-40), and often settling for the Poor and Worst Parts (un-ripened fruit) because they don’t have the patience to naturally await the Best (Ripe) Part! Don’t misunderstand me, there’s nothing wrong with pleasure, just make sure it’s evenly distributed throughout the year regardless of the Season your in. Because like the Grasshopper, you may be starving when the Fall (pun intended) comes.
“.. didn’t build ‘Prison Houses’ for his people.” (29/1-40)
Watching my Young Queens get Knowledge of Self “FOR THEMSELVES” (not because their Ole’ Dad is gonna whup they ass!) has always been absolutely Peace! It shows that they cee value in the results, not necessarily in what they feel is expected of them. Of course they do try to appease me sometimes yet I always remind them that it’s Peace b.u.t. it’s their life they’re living. I’ve ceen different Gods/Earths rearing their children (particularly females) in this Culture like the same ‘Prison House’ Joe Jackson put his children in. The only difference is that Joe beat them in the head with Music Lessons! Gods/Earths drilling their seeds in Lessons is a “Military Training of MEN” (12/1-14) that I don’t particularly subscribe to. I can it more applicable if you got suns yet I don't cee that as the best approach for a young moon (daughter). I “continue daily” (13/1-40) to teach them Discipline no doubt, yet that Zealous Religiosity and Fanaticism Gods/Earths be on is some other shit! As they approach their Pre-teens, now I can build with them about “Training Units” that are less broad and more specific than “General Civilization” subject matters. The phrase “The Understanding (Seeds) are the Best Part” alludes to the fact that they definately bring out the best in you! No more Student Enrollment questions like, “Daddy why is the Moon following us when we drive?”, now they spittin’ Actual Facts like, “That was Trick-Knowledge because he handed me some batteries and told me they’re for me. He was acting like he was just giving me those batteries for my Gameboy Advance and waited later on before he asked if he can he play it! When Fred asked can he play it after him he took the batteries out, put them in his pocket and then handed the game to Fred and told him that those were his batteries. So he don’t know how to deal wit Equality either!” My response was, “Yeah, because he used that lie saying ‘those batteries are yours’ as a shield for his real Determined Idea of wanting to play ya’ game. He should of just did trading amongst you by saying up front that he had some batteries and if you share your game with him he’ll share his batteries with you. But he ain’t go through with it that way so now you know how to deal with him. He knew what he really wanted but tried to trick you into getting it, plus he caused trouble amongst you and Fred by having him think you don’t want him to play with ya Gameboy! Only trade with him if he deals with you strait up or cut him off and don’t deal with him like that at all.” For the Mathematically inclined you can cee that we just had a whole conversation dealing with insights found in the 4th, 5th, 8th & 9th Degrees in the 1-14’s and the 24th Degree in the 1-40’s.
“Who are easily led in.. .” (14/1-40)
The Right Direction makes the Wrong Direction look reaaaaalllll clumsy! It’s amazing how infantile people’s decision making process can be. I can cee this clumsiness in people because I cee myself when I made some of the same decisions in my Old Koran. Even though you may clearly cee what’s Right or what’s best for a person, you cannot force it on them. The Bible calls this “trespassing against them”! So you can’t trespass against a person even for Righteousness sake! You can only speak on it (warn them!) when given the opportunity (18 & 19/1-40). Who’s to say that this is not a Hell they need to go through that tempers them to cee things Right for themselves?! By interfering in this process you may be thinking your doing the Right thing but in reality you may be prolonging their Hell. 85% of the time it’s best to simply leave a person with their own beliefs and not be disruptive to the Way of Life they’ve chosen for themselves. But if their belief is, “I have faith that God will bless this 32oz bottle of bleach I’m about to drink” then it’s wrong to leave them with the bottle because they might die! Then you’ll have their “blood on ya hands”(19/1-40; Ez. 3:18)! Also keep in mind that when a person is easily led in, they’re hard to lead out. Sometimes they gotta feel the heat, cee the flames and smell the smoke before they get the fuck outta the building!
“.. educate him because one day he’s gonna grow to be a Great Man” (28/1-40)
Many Gods confuse the above phrase of being a “Great Man” with being a “Big Man” (9/1-36). Educate comes from the latin root word educere meaning “to draw out”. Being a Mr. Know It All does not mean your Educated. Nor does talking Big with a Big Attribute make you Great. As the 9th Degree asks, “Why does he FEAR the Devil now that he’s a Big Man?”, FEAR is what distinguishes a Great Man from a Big Man. The movie “Apocalypto” illustrates perfectly how FEAR (as a sickness!) is a force that differentiates a Great Man from a Big Man. The reason I mentioned Educate is because although many Men may appear to be God externally, they’ve never taken the time “to draw out”, confront and learn from their own FEARS. When many Gods say, “God don’t deal with emotions” it’s a slick way of saying they got fears that are “buried there” (5/1-14) that they don’t want to acknowledge. When Gods are confronted with the possibility of “hard times, hunger, nakedness, being out of doors also being a killed by the ones who even advocate this Science” (11/1-40) that’s when you cee the difference between a Great Man and a Big Man. As I stated, one of the Best Illustrations of this can be found in the movie “Apocalypto”, the symbolism is multilayered! Also, the fact that Prophetess Juanita Bynum got beat down and hospitalized by her husband “Bishop” Thomas Meeks, it definitely wasn’t “Great” PR for Black Men in general! This ripple effect will definitely be felt in the Black Church and Black Community at large so prepare yourself to cee & hear the Gospel of Sophia 2:1 being quoted; “Men thou aren’th shit. Thy Lord thus practiced when he madeth Man from the beasts of thy field, yet perfected his Creation when he fashioned a Woman from the voice of angelic virtues.”!
“Civilize means to teach Knowledge and Wisdom.. .” (2/1-14)
Teaching Love “Knowledge Wisdom” is often a Hell of a job because the person can’t cee that there’s a Right way you need to go about doing it, especially a female. Since Society “continues daily” (13/1-40) to give us a Romanesque Idea of what Love’s supposed to be, people fail to put it in the context of Civilization and adopt a Hedonistic Perspective of Love. Love must be looked at through Civil-Eyes (Civilize) and this may (or may not!) include feelings, although in it’s highest form it transcends feelings altogether in the form of Understanding. This doesn’t mean you’re a Dr. Spock and I’m not invalidating this “attractive power” (feelings), I’m just saying that however “high this mist ascends and regardless of what other forms of mist it increases with it eventually becomes heavier than this gravitation and DISTILLS BACK IN THE FORM” (8/1-40). So in other words, no matter how heavy your feelings may be, you will always come back to the form or structure you “made and grown” these feelings from “in the beginning” (9/1-14). There’s a time a place for these “many layers of currents real cold and warm, other very swift and changeable” (8/1-40) b.u.t. you damn sure can’t expect to “build a Home for yourself” (4/1-14) on them! When it comes to dealing with a Wiz’s Cipher, Teaching her Civilization is TRUE Love while Knowledgen’ Wisdom is a SQUARE’S Love. While both of them eventually lead to Understanding, you take two very different paths to get there. LOL! A perfect illustration of this can be found in the Classic Movie “Carmen Jones”. In the beginning of the movie there’s a part when Joe (Harry Belafonte) is taking Carmen (Dorothy Dandridge) to Masonville and finds himself at a fork in the road (TRUTH or SQUARE). I won’t spoil it b.u.t. I encourage you to get this Classic Movie and check out which route Joe chose and the results that came along with it. On a side note, for those of you who haven’t gotten into “Old Movies”, keep in mind that back in the day there wasn’t all that CGI and Special Effects you’ve learned to enjoy in all the “Big” Movies you cee today! Although there are many Great Movies made today, what made these “Old Movies” Great was bare bone Actoring, ill ass Dialogue and bangin’ Plots, nothing more and nothing less!
“They are the Poor Righteous Teachers.. .” (16/1-40)
That’s right, “They Are”! Although I am a Righteous Teacher I ain’t Poor nor do I embrace Poverty as a part of my Environment or my Socioeconomic destiny! The fact that the 16th Degree asks us “Who is the 5% of THIS POOR PART of the Planet Earth?” it insinuates that there must be RICH PART of the Planet Earth upon which the 5% also resides. And correspondingly, “THAT 5%” would be considered “Rich Righteous Teachers”. Being Rich does not mean you have to be 10%, a Slave Maker of the Poor or Bloodsucker of the Poor like our 15th Degree (1-40) states! Nor does being Poor mean you’re a Righteous Teacher! People often equate getting money with Greed and take a vow of Poverty because they think it’s the Righteous thing to do, and Teach others to do the same bullshit! It never occurs to them that they may have become Greedy about looking/being Poor! The Poor Part, Worst Part and Best (Rich) Part of the Planet Earth mentioned in our 1st & 3rd Degrees (1-14) represent States of Mind first and foremost. It is this “Mentality” that will breathe life into your Environment and Socioeconomic Circumstances. It’s all the way you cee it and how you cultivate the “useful land” you’re standing on. For instance, the difference in Poor, Worst and Best (Rich) Parts may be based upon your chosen Career, chosen Companion, or City you live in. I also must mention that whatever you define something as, whether it’s Poor, Worst or Best (Rich), your definition will always adhere to the Universal Law that naturally governs it. What this means is that these definitions bear it’s corresponding Justice and sometimes that Justice may manifest something the complete opposite of what you thought! For example, have you ever befriended a person and considered them the Best Part b.u.t. they eventually Show and Prove themselves to be the Poor Part? What about a nice Indian Restaurant you went to that had the Worst food you’ve ever ate, only to try a different Indian Restaurant and find out that it’s one of the Best Restaurants you’ve ever been to? Sometimes it takes time to reveal the Poor, Worst or Best (Rich) b.u.t. sometimes it may be manifested from the gate. All in all, the nature of what it is and how it functions will adhere to the Law which governs it, regardless of what we choose to call it. So in a nutshell, North America is not a Wilderness or the Poor Part of the Planet Earth to everybody and all Righteous Teachers are not Poor.
“Also free transportation to the Holy City of Mecca to see their Brother Muhammad.” (9/1-14)
If you’ve ever studied the 10th Degree (1-14) it’s dealing with murdering 4 Devils (symbolically of course!). The reward one is said to receive is “a pin to wear on the lapel of one’s coat” and also “free transportation to the Holy City of Mecca to see their Brother Muhammad”. Don’t it get it twisted! Murder is Murder and it’s no small thing! That free trip to me is the Science of catching the first thing smoking in order to get the fuck outta town! That’s definitely “rewarding” because who wants to hang around like that after murdering muthafucka’s? Let this be a lesson, if you’re gonna kill a certain habit you need to insure that you’re not sitting in the same place or doing the same thing where that habit died! Not only does death carry an awful stench but it can also haunt you! Aside from that, you can also find yourself relapsing! That’s why Employers warn against dating in the workplace. If you’re working with someone you get into a relationship with and have a bad fall out it will effect your job performance, even if it’s as “so-called” innocuous as deliberately not speaking. When your supposedly trying to write a New Koran in your life you cannot leave Old Surah’s wide open. The “pin to wear on the lapel of your coat” (the lapel upon which the pin is positioned is on the left breast which is over one’s “heart”. The heart symbolizes the seat of one’s emotions) symbolizes service, status & accomplishment. A Pin on one’s lapel also serves as a Socioeconomic Passport! In other words, people can identify the dues you paid and the circle of influence you now belong to by a simple pin you’ve earned and adorn on your lapel. An example of this is the science behind the “Rising Phoenix” Pin Hillary R. Clinton faithfully rocks on her lapel. In this sense, the Pin and Transportation is similar to the Masonic Coin a Master Mason is instructed to travel with on his journeys. Ultimately, it’s one’s ability to be emotionally resolute (Pin) in order to move on freely (Free Transportation) after dealing with death (Murder) in their life! It’s as simple as just “getting a break” from dealing with some things going on in your life! So take a trip whether it’s a literally outside of your City or Introspectively within your ownself! Not simply because you’ve earned it, b.u.t. because YOU MAY NEED IT!
