Why LOVE The Devil?

Gaining ‘Knowledge of Self’ (KOS) is about transformation. It’s about taking inventory of our lives and modifying our thoughts AND behavior to serve a greater purpose in Life. Essentially, we become a better person for ourselves, our Family, our Community, and the World as a whole. Within The Nation of Gods and Earths (The NGE; Five Percenters), our standard is ‘Divine’ and this process is ‘Righteousness’. In the simplest of terms, we strive to do our best and do what’s good for ourselves, others and the environment. THIS DOES NOT MEAN that we will express this impeccability at all times, b.u.t. our determined idea is that “We Strive” (Shing Shing Regime)! So in dealing with People, especially another God/Earth, there are certain Cultural expectations we have for one another based upon our standards of being ‘Divine’ and ‘Righteous’. I shouldn’t expect a Brother who calls himself So & So Allah to lie, steal, or cheat me; he should be above that! I also don’t expect Queen So & So to try and master me; she’s better than that! Likewise, People should never expect any of these lowly expressions from me. Sadly, I and many Gods/Earths who strive to express our standards of being ‘Divine’ and ‘Righteous’, don’t always know what to expect from some our Brothers/Sisters nowadays. For various reasons, sometimes our Brothers/Sisters claim our Culture, b.u.t. DO NOT consider or adhere to the same standards of being ‘Divine’ and ‘Righteous’.

Culture is the sum total of all of our people activities. Culture permeates every aspect of our life from our Diet, Child Rearing, Labor, Conflict Resolution, Language, etc… All of these people activities are based upon our Principles and Values, and this summarizes our Worldview. The way we go about expressing our Cultural Worldview is called our ‘Pedagogy’ (Teaching; Curriculum and Methodology). In gaining KOS, our ‘Pedagogy’ is the Philosopher’s Stone like elixir that’s used to transform our baser self into it’s highest expression. Without the proper Curriculum and/or Methodology, it’s impossible for us to elevate. Some of the behavior we cee in our Brothers/Sisters that DOES NOT express what’s ‘Divine’ and ‘Righteous’ is because 1.) They weren’t taught correctly or 2.) They didn’t learn correctly. Sometimes People don’t carry ‘Divine’ and ‘Righteousness’ standards because they really don’t want to learn. Our 9/1-40 corroborates this by stating, “the 85% (majority) knows that it rains, hails, snows, and also hears thunder above their heads BUT DO NOT TRY TO LEARN who is causing all this to happen BY LETTING THE 5% TEACH THEM. They believe in the 10% on face value”. Sometimes People come into a Culture, Religion or Metaphysical System with their own agenda, and never actually grasp the true transformative power of that Culture, Religion or Metaphysical System. There are many reasons why People ‘do not try to learn’ this Culture, and Today I wanted to build about that reason being: “they love the Devil because the Devil gives him/her nothing” (6/1-36).

Along the process of KOS, we confront a lot of things in our life. Sometimes that confrontation is easy, and a lot of times it’s very difficult. Many times the difficulty comes from having “a hard time” (2/1-14) giving up those things that we loved to do; those things that don’t coincide with what’s ‘Divine’ and ‘Righteous’. Maybe we loved to have sex with multiple partners and never really invested in relationships that are emotionally stable and enduring. Maybe we were drug addicts or alcoholics. Maybe we were compulsive liars or career criminals. Maybe we loved to eat certain foods that aren’t good for us. Maybe we just loved drama! Whatever these ideas/behaviors were, once we commit ourselves to gaining KOS, we start learning the real purpose these things serve in our life. We also learn how to positively transform these ideas/behaviors, and that’s the purpose of Building. Make no mistake about it, THIS PROCESS IS NOT A WALK IN THE PARK! It's a Journey that demands serious Time, Courage, Commitment, Initiative, Work, Study, Money, Discipline, Sincerity, Humility, Sobriety, Love, Support, and etc.. This is not a 9-5, a Bachelors Degree, or your Stamp Collection. IT'S OUR LIFE!. ALL OF US go through withdrawal, and MANY OF US go through a series of relapses before we finally gain the strength to live out this Culture consistently. Oftentimes, what underlines this struggle is the love we still have for the things that really give us nothing…

One of the keys to transforming our condition is that we must be honest with ourselves, b.u.t. it does not stop there. Some People think that being honest means just saying and doing whatever they want. Being honest IS NOT some kind of Verbal/Behavioral Amnesty. Lol No matter how honest or even dishonest we are, we’re still accountable for what we say/do. There are many honest Pedophiles, b.u.t. do we shrug our shoulders about what they say/do simply because they were honest about their obviously uncivilized behavior? If I honestly told you I choose to neglect my child(ren), does that make me somehow alright now? Honesty or being transparent with People must serve the purpose of cultivating ‘Righteousness’. In otherwords, if we can honesty say we hate somebody, we need to use that honest assessment of OUR PROBLEM to transform that lowly condition in order to rise above that emotion. We don’t just admit we hate what somebody’s doing, claim how honest we are for saying it, and then sit back and continue talking about how much we hate ‘em! Lol Where’s the growth and development or maturity in that? Where’s the elevation in those who sit and co-sign that kind of talk and behavior? In order to transform our condition WE MUST BE transparent about the issues we have. B.u.t. once we acknowledge these issues, we have to actually do something about them! If not, then “we love the Devil because the Devil gives us nothing” (6/1-36). So the next time you hear People talking reckless and demonstrating that they don’t give a fuck about what they say/do, honestly ask yourself are they truly being considerate to their Family, You, and the Community they exist in. Honestly ask yourself is their words/behavior ‘right’ for developing maintaining positive relationships with others. If they’re talking about someone like a dog today and it’s funny to you, what makes you think you’re not going to be the bitch they’re talking about tomorrow? If People don’t give a fuck about what I’m saying, then ask yourself how can they honestly give a fuck about you. Ultimately, we need to honestly ask ourselves why we “like” entertaining this kind of obvious devilishment in the first place, because it’s really not doing “nothing” for our personal growth and development. (6/1-36).

In Conclusion, the beauty of transparency is the fact that we can cee what’s on the table and what we’re working with. If it’s obvious bullshit, then we need to “clean it up” (9/1-14). If we honestly aren’t striving to clean it up, then it’s clear that our agenda doesn’t coincide with what’s ‘Divine’ and ‘Righteous’. And if we’re not striving to coincide with standards of being ‘Divine’ and ‘Righteous’, then it’s not hard to figure out who we are…

Positive Eduction Always Corrects Errors!

Dead Beat Men

If you look at the 1/1-10, “Who is the Original Man?”, you’ll notice how each characteristic mentioned within that Lesson is progressive. It’s starts off with “Maker” and evolves to the state of being “God of the Universe”. The last step before establishing one’s self as “God of the Universe”, a Man must first solidify himself as a “Father of Civilization”. In other words, it’s impossible to realize oneself as “God of the Universe” if we haven’t first realized the responsibility of “Fathering Civilization”…!

This is very important to understand because there are many males who believe that they can somehow manifest the ability of a True & Living God while simultaneously being neglectful of their own child(ren), AND indifferent towards children who lack a Father Figure in their life. It’s impossible to identify ourselves as Creator, if we haven’t successfully Fathered Creation. In street lingo: We ain’t never gon be shit if we ain’t takin care of our kids! When I say “takin care of”, I’m not talking about child support gettin garnished outcho check. I’m talking about being a Parent and playing an active role in our child(ren)s life! It amazes me how super intelligent many males try to come across, yet they aren’t intelligent enough to know it’s important to have a relationship with their own child(ren). -shakes head- Even if they don’t have a child, it’s still important for them to be available to children who lack a Father Figure in their life. A Father carries, gives, provides for, and protects the seed of ‘Life’. When a Man does not function in this capacity, he cannot be the Author of ‘Life’ itself; God of the Universe.

I was 20 when my first Queen was born. When I found out that my girlfriend was pregnant, I immediately told my Parents. Without batting any eye, my Ole Earth looked at me and simply said, “Well you know what you need to do.” Even though I had no clue what I needed to actually do, I did know I needed to be in my child’s life! Facing this unknown terrain, I felt scared, insecure and unprepared for Fatherhood, b.u.t. “in my own good time” (39/1-40) I began to find my way. I had no Manual. I had my Will, my Ole Dad, my Older Brother, and various other Men in my Life that served as a makeshift Reference Guide on what I should/shouldn’t do as a Father. Two years after the birth of my first Queen, I had my next Queen at the age of 22. Fast forward 15 years and I now cee the direct results of the time I’ve invested in my children. Keep in Mind that this Article is not a personal celebration of what a Man should already be doing as a Father. This Article is an appeal to those males who’ve yet to fulfill this natural role, for various “inexcusable” reasons.

I’ve known dudes who supposedly had Knowledge of Self who were given the opportunity to raise their own child(ren), yet they chose not to. Some of these dudes weren’t even capable of taking care of themselves let alone a child. They were grown ass irresponsible Adults who chose not to work, and had no place to stay. Some chose to neglect their child(ren) and pursue a relationship with some female, a female who’s not in the picture today! Some dudes were afraid of the responsibility, because deep down inside they think they’ll fail at being a Father. Other dudes were simply in and out of jail too much to be a stable Parent. Whatever their problem was and is, what they often strive to hide is the fact that their estranged relationship with their child(ren) is because of their own self imposed Parental Alienation. Even if there was/is a problem with their child(ren)’s Mother, they often don’t “give all they have and do everything within their power” to ensure they have a relationship with their child(ren) (40/1-40). Oftentimes they just rationalize sitting on their lazy ass by saying, “I’ll just wait til my child(ren) get older and come cee me.” -shakes head- You may hear these dudes talking about this Parental Alienation, b.u.t. it’s usually only for the purpose of soliciting for pity. You won’t hear these dudes honestly talking about how they chose to be a Dead Beat Man, and how they probably still aren’t being responsible for their child(ren). As I said, this is completely inexcusable and there is no way to justify abandoning our child(ren), ESPECIALLY if we call ourselves coming in the Name of the True & Living God! Personally speaking, I would never want something like that on my conscience, and I wouldn’t want to deal with the inevitable Justice of choosing “not to perform my duty” (19/1-40); a ‘primary’ duty because this responsibility starts “at home” with our family, and then must be shared “abroad” (14/1-14). So no matter how much Macho Math dudes try to spit, fast they can quote Lessons, or proficient they are in speaking other languages, all of that doesn’t mean shit if they can’t recite the last time they spent time with their own child(ren). And those of us who co-sign this behavior by willingly associating with these Dead Beat Men are equally responsible because we didn’t “speaketh to warn the wicked of their wicked ways TO SAVE HIS -and his child(ren)s- LIFE”! When it comes time for them to get served their Justice, we’re going to get served Justice right along with them! (19/1-40)

On the flip side, just yesterday on Fox News Detroit, there was a NEWS STORY about some guy named Thomas Wright who didn’t bring his son “Ja’lon” back to his Mother Lakeisha Leak for over a Month! Although Lakeisha said she gave Ja’lon to Thomas for a few days, she said that Thomas, AKA: Righteous Allah, didn’t bring him back because he’s a Five Percenter, and she doesn’t believe “their God”. She also stated that Thomas said he needed to protect Ja’lon to know the truth that he is the true and living God. Fox News tried to have a field day with this and put out an initial Article claiming a lot of misinformation about “The Five Percenters” (The NGE; The Nation of Gods and Earths). Instead of focusing on the Domestic Issue between these two young Parents, Fox News incorrectly labeled The Five Percenters “a Religious Extremist Group that split from The NOI (The Nation of Islam) in the 1960’s”. After a flood of phone calls from Gods/Earths and other People associated with this Nation to Fox News’ Kevin Rosenburg, Fox continued to update the Story until they eventually added a Public Statement issued by The Gods/Earths in D-Mecca (Detroit) that included the sentences, “It’s Leaders say it’s a God-Centered Culture that split from The Nation of Islam back in the 1960’s.” and “Fox 2 spoke with Local Members of the ‘Five Percenters’ who say their Culture promotes Family and in no way do they condone what Thomas Wright has done with his child.” I myself contacted Kevin Rosenburg yet was only able to leave a VM. I also spoke with an Officer at the Central Headquarters of the Detroit Police. The Officer informed me that they were still investigating the Incident and aren’t releasing any information about the Story right now.

This Story is troubling on many levels. First and foremost, ANY TIME there’s a missing child regardless if they’re Black, Brown, Red, Yellow or White, it’s a tragedy!! I know I speak for many that I hope this child, who actually has a physical disability, is safe. Another thing that troubles me is ceeing the dysfunction of our Families where we’re struggling to “advocate for one common cause”; raising our child(ren)! (8/1-14) That is also a tragedy because that oftentimes serves as a death sentence for the future. Lastly, I definitely didn’t appreciate how Lakeisha Leak, who was obviously misinformed about What our Nation teaches, to allow herself to be used as cannon fodder for Fox News’ personal attack against our Culture! Now Gods/Earths around the Country had to go into damage control mode to help clean up our public image. When I built with the God Life about this he made a very important point. He said, “If a Man who happened to be Christian robbed a Bank, the News would just say ‘a Man robbed a Bank’. If a Man robbed a Bank who had an affiliation with any Culture or Religion other than Christianity, the News highlights their Culture or Religion as if that were the reason they committed that crime.” Those of you who watch the news can definitely vouch for that journalistic inequality. I built with some Gods/Earths in that Region where this incident took place and was informed that Thomas Wright AKA: Righteous Allah, was only loosely affiliated with the General Body of Gods/Earths in D-Mecca (Detroit), and his actions proves this to be absolutely true. Although I do not know the specifics of what Lakeisha and Thomas were going through in their relationship, or the specifics of their Custodial Order, as “Five Percenters” (Gods/Earths) WE DO NOT teach or advocate child endangerment, child abandonment, child delinquency, or child neglect. We do teach and advocate that the children are our link to the future and must be nurtured, respected, loved, protected, and educated. We also teach that Family Unity is the vital building block of a Nation. For anyone who’s read my Articles, read my Books, watched my DVD and Youtube Videos, listened to my Online Radio Program, or checked out my Youth Mentor Program and Community Initiatives, you can cee that our Culture is clearly about Positive Growth and Development. We don’t teach or advocate Crime, Criminology, Gang Activity, or Gangsterism! We do advocate Righteousness and “teach Civilization to ALL THE HUMAN FAMILIES of the Planet Earth” (2/1-14). As I stated earlier, we don’t teach or advocate not to take care of your child(ren)! We likewise don’t teach or advocate that infants should be taken away from a Parent -UNLESS of course there is documented medical, substance abuse, or psychological evidence to corroborate their inability to take care of that child. Ultimately, we as a Nation of People, consider ourselves “Civilized”. According to our Cultural Curriculum, Civilization means "one having Knowledge, Wisdom, Understanding, Culture, Refinement, and is not a savage in the pursuit of happiness." (17/1-40) The acquisition and application of these qualities improve our lives and those around us. In fact, after we learn the meaning of Civilization, the very next lesson we learn is, “What is the Duty of a Civilized Person?” which states, “The Duty of a Civilized Person is to teach he who is savage Civilization, Righteousness, the Knowledge of Himself, the Science of Everything in Life, Love, Peace and Happiness.” (18/1-40)

In conclusion, I want to encourage those of you who take this Culture to heart to keep Positively Representing, and doing what you do!!! Keep doing the work "at home" with your Family, and reaching out to your Community Family "abroad" (14/1-14)!!! This is the rent we pay for our stay on Earth, and investment in a future!!!
