I Am Legend; G.O.D. (Gold, Oil and Diamonds)

What's in a NAME?

Peace Ya’ll! I posted the above image of AZ to make Knowledge Born that I appear on his New Album “I Am Legend: G.O.D. (Gold, Oil & Diamonds)”. If you haven’t heard it yet I encourage you to pick it up! I definitely give The NGE some positive PR and I’m thankful for being given this opportunity to expand my reach to the masses of people! Having a cameo on AZ’s Album, working as a Consultant for the Gangland Series about ‘The Hidden Valley Kings’, Mentoring Youth, writing Books, doing Music and working on various other Projects within and outside of my Community and Country has been a dream come true for me! My biggest words of advice for anybody working to manifest their Career are these simple words: Take time to ponder and work on the condition of your heart! When I say ‘Heart’ I’m talking about your Will or Intent behind what you say and do! What’s in your heart, where your heart is at and why it’s there will determine what you get out of the Universe and what you bring into your Life. Because my heart is sincerely rooted in sharing of these ideas to contribute to Civilization, NOT covert/overt desires for notoriety, fame, making money, stroking my EGO, impressing females, etc..., there are many things I’ve been able to do and will continue to do. So always remember that ‘When ya heart ain’t right….., nothing else will be right’ -“regardless to whom or what” (11/1-14)! Anyway, enough about that, let me get into Today’s Article…

When I was going through the 14/1-14, “What is the meaning of MGT and GCC?”, I had some insights I wanted to share with you in regards to the science of a NAME.

Cee, a NAME is a word used to identify and officially define how a person, place or thing functions. A NAME or ‘making a name for yourself’ also identifies a person’s reputation (the overall quality or character ceen by people). A NAME establishes the foundational Principles that shape a person’s Values, orders their Priorities and ultimately defines their Culture (way of life). In the Bible we learn, “In the beginning was the word…” Well ‘the word’ is a NAME. This is the reason why during Ancient (and Contemporary Times) naming our Children was/is sacred to us. This is also the reason why when some of our Ancestors were enslaved and/or colonized, the first thing that was done by the Perpetrators was to rename them. So a NAME is much more than what we call ourselves and what people call us; this can never be minimized!

What NAME do you come in?

In Indigenous Societies children are born given a NAME that symbolizes their qualities, assigns their role in the Family/Society and charts their destiny. When a Child is Christened they’re given a Christian NAME that denotes their alliance/allegiance to Christianity -regardless if this child wants to or not, this NAME orientates them psychologically. When a person joins the Nation of Islam they receive an “X” to replace their last NAME (surname); their surname is usually a slave name of European Descent that was handed down to their Ancestors by the Slave Masters who once owned them. Various Cultural and Religious Movements that were/are designed to establish/re-establish certain Principles, Values and Priorities in their Members also recognize the importance of their People coming in NAMES that identify and officially define some -if not all- of these Principles, Values and Priorities. As a Declaration of one’s Independence, ‘Nationhood’ or ‘Nationality’ (14/N= Now, Nation or End/Supreme Alphabet), these NAME(S) they choose -or that have been chosen for them- is ultimately used to let it be officially Known (1) that they have an alliance/allegiance to a specific Culture (4); a summation of certain Principles, Values and Priorities.

(14/1-14) What is the meaning of MGT & GCC?
Muslim Girl Training and General Civilization Class. These are THE NAMES GIVEN TO the Girls and Women that belong to Islam in North America teaching them: How to keep a home, How to raise her children, How to keep a Husband, Sew & Cook, in general How to Act at Home and Abroad. These Training Units were NAMED BY our Prophet by the name of W.D. Fard.

This Lesson emphasizes the importance of observing, identifying and officially defining how a female functions and her reputation, as Girls and as Women. The Training Units are four basic components that we also observe and identify as natural female functions such as:

· How to keep a Home
· How to raise their Children
· How to keep a Husband
· Sew & Cook (Homemaking)

Keep in Mind that “4” is symbolic to “Culture” (Culture/Supreme Mathematics), so these four basic components determine a female’s ability to align herself with any Culture (way of life); at home and abroad. Although according to the 14/1-14, MGT means ‘Muslim Girl Training’ and GCC means “General Civilization Class’, MGT is also the acronym for ‘Management’ and GCC is the acronym for ‘General Control Center’. So these, MGT & GCC -her ability to Manage/Administrate or be Manageable and her sense of stability (psychological “control center” of gravity)- are THE NAMES GIVEN TO the Girls and Women that ‘belong to’ (are a part of) ‘Islam’ (I Sincerely Love Allah’s Mathematics, I Self Lord And Master, In Self Lay All Mathematics). In The Nation of Gods and Earths this means that it’s important to first (1) observe and identify how a Girl or Woman functions, the type of reputation she has and if she really has it in her to live this way of life (4) before you give her a NAME as your Earth. You can make a proper assessment of this by observing and identifying how she performs the above four basic components; How she keeps a home, How to raises her child(ren), How she keeps a Man (Husband), How she Sews & Cooks (her Homemaking Skills). These four basic components -along with other natural female functions- gives a Man insight into her degree of cultivation and her ability to cultivate her ownself. It’s important to realize these four basic components are ‘Training Units’ designed to help a female make the transition from a Girl to a Woman, and it’s a process born from her own volition, conviction and condition! These Training Units were (and are) NAMED BY us as Men meaning: ‘observed and identified’ by us as natural female functions. In the most ideal situation, Girls are taught and trained in these units by Women who already have experience in how to apply these skill sets at home & abroad. Although Men can and do teach Girls and Women many things, the above four basic components are natural skill sets that Women teach eachother.

Why is it not a Man’s job to teach a Woman How to keep a home, How to raise the child(ren), How to keep a Man (Husband), How to Sew & Cook (her Homemaking Skills)?

Because a Woman should already know these things; she's A WOMAN! A Man can only teach a Girl these things “theoretically” b.u.t. she eventually must take it upon herself to do these things for herself. Actually, these things represent a natural process of a female’s maturity; a Girl becoming a Woman and taking responsibility for her own life as an Adult. Unfortunately, many Women never learned How to keep a home, How to raise child(ren), How to keep a Man (Husband), How to Sew & Cook (her Homemaking Skills) as little Girls and this places a responsibility on a Man to find a way to “train her” in these Units. Now a huge problem arises because these are things this Woman should have learned as a Girl. If a Man puts himself in a position to teach this Woman these things, at one point or another he’s going to give her the impression that he’s treating her like a Girl. This is why females may protest saying, “You’re not my Father!”, “I’m not your child!”, etc… when a Man takes the initiative to educate a Woman about things she should have learned as a Girl! Although this relationship may initially come across as a Man simply being supportive of a Woman’s growth and development, this “Man teaching things to a Woman she should’ve learned as a Girl” Dynamic will always end up offending, belittling and disrespecting a Woman! The reverse is also true and this is often the case with Women who find themselves in relationships with males who haven’t matured as Men; they find themselves trying to teach them b.u.t. end up treating them like a Boy! Both of these examples are recipes for resentment! Let me repeat that: Both of these examples are recipes for resentment! The best way to avoid/minimize offending, belittling or disrespecting a Woman who hasn’t learned How to keep a home, How to raise the child(ren), How to keep a Man (Husband), How to Sew & Cook (her Homemaking Skills) is to direct her to another Woman -or Women- who already have experience in how to apply these skill sets at home & abroad. The same method should be used with Men; they need another Man -or Men- to show them the natural process of maturity, becoming a Man and taking responsibility for his own life as an Adult. When a Woman deals with a Girl or another Woman, there’s a level of gender specific accreditation that is conveyed in the Principles, Values and Priorities they communicate within this relationship. The same holds true with Men dealing with a Boy or another Man. As I stated before in another Article, Men must realize that as males we adorn the phallus bearing costume that represents Misogyny and Global Gender Oppression towards females!! Because of this undeniable fact, we have to work extra hard to find effective ways of dealing with Women that shows and proves to them that we don’t uphold that chauvinistic Status Quo! When we as Men (particularly Gods) take it upon ourselves to teach a Woman How to keep a home, How to raise the child(ren), How to keep a Man (Husband), How to Sew & Cook (her Homemaking Skills), we often unknowingly perpetuate the gender oppressive trauma females have been feeling since she they were born; regardless of how righteous of our intentions may be!! The point I’m making is this: Because this Patriarchal Society inculcates the insecurity we cee in females (doesn’t teach the meaning of MGT & GCC -her ability to Manage/Administrate or be Manageable and her sense of stability (psychological center of gravity), IF/WHEN WE DON’T TAKE THIS INTO CONSIDERATION -especially when we’re dealing with the four basic components that helps identify/define her Womanhood-, we can end up ‘Destroying’ a relationship we may have had the most ‘Divine’ intentions about! (4/D= Divine or Destroy/Supreme Alphabet)

So to conclude Today’s Article, take a few of these points into consideration in dealing with the 14/1-14:

1. Insure that you teach a Woman the importance of making a NAME for herself and that the renewal of her Mind hinges upon her defining/re-defining “Who” she is. “Who” is a question of identity and who she defines herself as is the NAME she comes in, how she functions and the reputation she carries and aspires to. When Women get Married, they traditionally take on the Man’s last NAME. This act within itself shows her alliance/allegiance to his Nation and her willingness to extend the legacy of this family tree. A Woman who chooses to Know (1) the Culture (4) of the Gods and Earths likewise declares her alliance/allegiance and citizenship into this Nation by eventually choosing a Righteous NAME that’s derived from and reflects the Principles, Values and Priorities of this Culture. Since she is the first teacher of the child, she sets the psychological tone for how this child attends and responds to the World. If a Woman has insecurities about who she is, her alliance/allegiance is questionable and she’s flaky about choosing a Righteous NAME, she will pass these fears on to her child. Also, emphasize that when it comes to Knowledge of “Self”, her NAME (how she functions and the reputation she carries and aspires to) represents her autonomy; it’s Knowledge of Herself, not ‘Knowledge of You’ or ‘Knowledge for You’!!

2. “In the beginning was the word” -A NAME establishes the foundation to establish/re-establish the Principles that shape a person’s Values, orders their Priorities and ultimately defines their Culture (way of life). Just because a female may come in the name of Queen, Earth, etc… doesn’t mean that she acknowledges, observes of even respects these Principles, Values and Priorities. The basic Training Units identified in the 14/1-14 equips you with the ability to observe and assess her Principles, Values, Priorities and Cultural development.

3. Before you give the NAME “Earth” to a female, observe how she already expresses the Training Units (How she keeps her Home, How she raises the child(ren), How she keeps a Man (Husband), How she Sews & Cooks (her Homemaking Skills) at home and abroad! This will tell you upfront what you’ll have to deal with if she decides to really Know (1) this Culture (4).

4. If you cee that a Woman needs to be taught and trained in certain areas she should have learned as a Girl, don’t be so quick to be the one to teach her! Respect that another Woman is the ‘best knower’ of these skill sets and find a way to get her in tune with a Women -or Women- that can help her develop (mature) in these areas. Even though you may have the most righteous intentions, a Woman will eventually start to resent you when she feels like you’re belittling, minimizing and disrespecting her by treating her like a little Girl. And if you have/find a Woman that likes you to treat her like a little Girl, this means she doesn’t want to grow up! My point is, when building with a female, there are certain Lessons and/or phrase is certain Lessons that demand a gender specific approach in order for a female to get the best educational experience out it! It is in my perspective that the 14/1-14 deserves such a gender specific approach.

My Finger-Roll! LOL

Cultural Knock-offs

Peace Ya’ll! Today I wanted to delve back into the science of our Culture; Culture being our sum total of people activities that are rooted in our Priorities, Values and Principles. For example, the type of food we choose to eat is a dietary representation of our ‘Way of Life’ (Culture) and expresses our Priorities, Values and Principles. Ceeing someone devouring a BBQ pulled pork burger and washing it down with a ice cold Colt 45 before they smoke a loosey cigarette gives you a great deal of insight into how they’re actually living, how they set their priorities, what they value and what dietary principles they’re aware of & adhere to. Those of you who’re feeling like I’m making a judgment call on what people choose to do, you’re getting my words twisted! The point I’m making is simply this: people’s activities express their Culture. With this in Mind, we must honestly ask ourselves, “By evaluating people’s activities, how do you distinguish a God and Earth from anybody else?” Think about this for a second……. If two dudes are high as hell on coke and one calls himself Master Islord Born Allah and the other dude’s name is Rufus Johnson, what’s the real difference between them? If two females are hoppin from man to man, looking for love in all the wrong places and one calls herself True Dream Earth and the other’s name is Becky Roland, what’s the real difference between them? Cee, we can rationalize it any way we want b.u.t. Master Islord and Rufus’ will either get fired or put in a Rehab Program for breaching the no-drug policy at their place of employment if they get caught wit dirty piss. As for True Dream Earth and Becky…? Well let’s just say that both a dem don’t seem like “the marrying” type. LOL

Now in the above two analogies of course there are going to be variances; When they’re high as hell, Islord might start talking about how he’s God of the Universe and Rufus might start talking about how he’s da shit on da Basketball Court. When they’re dealin with somebody, True Dream might say she’s “now” reflecting the light of da God So & So and Becky might say this is her “new” Man. What I’m emphasizing here is this: When it comes to people’s activities, there’s often a common theme or pattern of behavior that’s clearly evident -regardless of what name we come in or what we wanna call our way of life. These activities tell you our “real” Culture and the Priorities, Values and Principles that define our “real” way of life -regardless of what name we come in or what we wanna call our way of life! So if you can’t cee a clear distinction or difference in the people activities of a so-called God/Earth from the people activities of the everyday John/Jane that’s probably because there isn’t a difference! LOL And if you’re going outta your way try to make the distinction or cee a difference then you’re probably going outta your way to fool yourself. Cee, there are certain things that Gods/Earths simply don’t/won’t do who’re seriously dedicated to righteousness and striving for perfection. There are also certain things that Gods/Earths simply don’t/won’t/can’t rationalize in the process of striving for that perfection and living out righteousness. Keep in Mind that ALL OF US have growth and development to do in certain areas in our lives. If we’re serious about working on these areas in our life then we won’t glorify, rationalize or justify them. This means that we’re all dealing with something in our life that we can improve upon, b.u.t. the question is, “Do we really want to do better or do we want to sit around and justify why we like not doing any better?” Also, when it comes to dedicating one’s life to righteousness and striving for perfection, never assume that people have the same intention. Contrary to what some of you would “like” (6/1-36) to believe about human beings, some people -including Gods/Earths- love to waddle in the muck & mire and really don’t want to do better. They love the crack headish endorphin rush they get from being in/causing Drama .They honestly feel good when they hear bad shit about other people, and they get angry, jealous and hateful when they cee/hear another person doing something positive; usually something they don’t have the talent(s) to do themselves. People like this do exist people!

Now, since our duty as Civilized People is to teach the uncivilized, this call of duty may take us to some very uncivilized places; places that when given the choice, we probably wouldn’t be. So in this case, we’re nothing more than Gods/Earths commuting to Grimeyville for our teaching gig. This approach is entirely different than Gods/Earths who choose to live in Grimeyville -not because they’re dedicated to a teaching gig b.u.t. because they simply enjoy being a local Grimey. In otherwords, some Gods may deal with alcohol in order to gain entrance into the “social equality” (8/1-14) of those that deal with that cipher in order to teach them. That’s entirely different than getting saucy with ya everyday drinking buddies and then turning around trying to rationalize that you’re teachin ‘em! Some Earths honestly respect how various Gods deal with Mathematics so they build with these Gods because they’re a cultural resource. That’s entirely different than being God Groupies who’re just fuckin around with different Gods. LOL

I remember when I first started experimenting with the high explosive we call ‘Equality’ (Equal, Weed, Herb, Marijuana, etc..). I was 20 year old College Newborn. Through the systematic use of ‘Equal’, I honestly tapped into a higher realm of consciousness and I’m forever grateful to have had the opportunity to open up certain perceptual doors. I used it for strictly study purposes and learned many things about myself and the environment that I wasn’t privy to when not in an altered state. Anyway, in time my priorities began to shift and instead of me occasionally studying with the use of this herb, I began to find myself using this herb to study with. In other words, the ritualized use of this sacred power plant became nothing more than a social drug habit; smoking weed. Yeah it obviously took me some time to realize I was actually doing this b.u.t. because I’m honest with myself, I eventually took inventory of what I was doing to myself! Yeah I rationalized that I’m gonna “deal with some Equality” before I go to the club and do the knowledge! LOL Yeah I tried to justify “getting elevated” at 3am because I would be able to tap into the dreamtime stream of collective consciousness the people were in as they slept -thus allowing me to remote view what was going on in that realm! LOL And yeah “I got stimulated” in a Cipher of Gods more than once a day so we can build on some “high” science! LOL Now for those of ya’ll who have always wondered how in da hell people even learned to equate ‘having a Cipher’ or passing a blunt -or other harder drugs- around in ‘a Cipher’ got started… it originated from the cultural lingo of early Five Percenters (Gods/Earths) mixed with destroy culture! Of course this is where our people were and still may be at in our own growth and development, yet many of these Gods/Earths rose and rise above these circumstances by drawing the line. Not using our people activities -AND CONSCIENCE- to draw the line between divine culture and destroy culture is also the origin of the motto, “To Master anything is to leave it the hell alone!” For those of you who are unfamiliar with that saying, many of our Elder Gods/Earths have given and will give their lives for us to learn that!

Now some of you are sitting back asking yourselves the question. “Is this Article some kinda Ad against the Legalization of Marijuana?” LOL Hell naw, it’s an Ad against the Cultural Apathy and Legalization of any people activities that undermine our growth & development as Individuals and as a Nation of People!! -shakes head- I’m also not saying we’re all squeaky clean either, b.u.t. we should be steadily working towards not being “mixed, diluted or tampered with” (9/1-14) in every aspect of our people activities and not settling for anything less, right? For example, if we’re smoking a box of Black -n- Mild’s a day, then we should be striving towards cutting it back until we can cut that habit off completely! And for those Supreme Mathematicians out there who’re sitting there trying to justify it, there is no science to smoking no damn Black -n- Mild’s. -shakes head- If we really have love for ourselves and eachother as a Family/Nation, then shouldn’t we want the best for eachother physically, mentally, emotionally, financially, etc..? And Naaaaaaaw this ain’t about telling people what they need to be doing either! To me, watching a baby waddle out into a street full of traffic is no different then watching an adult waddle into a situation where they can get blindsided by habitual traffic; (19/1-40). Hey, maybe it’s just me b.u.t. I thought a Family/Nation looked out for eachother in that regard. -shrugs- Oh well…

I’m also not advocating Nation of Islamish ‘Restrictive Laws’. Why? Because we’re “grown ass Adults”, who say we’re serious about positive growth and development, and we pursue this under our own power. So ultimately, because we take our own initiative to grow and develop we don’t need somebody to keep us in line; we check ourselves! Unfortunately, many Gods/Earths lack the conscience, initiative and maturity to commit themselves to positive growth and development. If this lack of commitment I cee within the Nation even remotely resembled what was going on in the sixties, I can cee the logic in the statement, “Go back to the Nation (of Islam)” that The Father “supposedly” made to his young Five Percenters who were ‘wild for da night!’ LOL Am I advocating that some Gods/Earths go join The NOI “so they can clean themselves up” (9/1-14)? Well from my experience with Registered Believers in The NOI, even Restrictive Laws aren’t going to stop a person from doing what they want to do! So the answer is NO, I don’t advocate Gods/Earths joining The NOI because The NOI or anything else ain’t gonna save them; they gotta save themselves!

So to conclude Today’s Article I want to encourage all of you not to waver in your dedication to righteousness and to continue striving for perfection. WE ALL got things we’re dealing with and that’s alright. The main thing is to do something about it! We may not be able to tackle projects all at once b.u.t we can chip away at it each and everyday until it no longer exists as a looming “sword above” (9/1-14) our heads! So take your time, be diligent and realize that our people activities are much more than the expression of a single individual living his/her life; we are a collective cultural consciousness ceen through individual eyes!
