Whole Grain As A Metaphor- Daily Toast Umoja 65171

Peace FAM:
Great Umoja, and I wish you Peace, Power, Joy, and of course 1hunidyears. We start this week with some powerful momentum being provided by you, the readers. Many of you have taken the time to click and sign up for our mailing list and have also taken the 21 Day Nguzo Saba Challenge. I am looking forward to your comments, and critique of the process so that we can make it better. The only way this tribe is going to grow and move into prosperity is with your input, and many of you are providing just that, and once a gain I thank you. it has been a long and arduous journey for me as a blogger, podcaster, and vlogger. I have sat on the side lines learning to use these platforms, and finally I am getting the hang of it. Keep on  doing what you are doing , and let's build a culture that will out live us, and provide a viable future for our children here now, and yet to come. Family I lift my glass to you on this Daily Toast. I pray that our ancestors move in your life and help you overcome all the obstacles that may present themselves to you. I lift my glass in the hopes that our enemies will become just another stepping stone that will lift us in a glorious fashion toward our ultimate goals.
Culture is a major focus for me, at this time because I realized that without it, we produce artificial broken individuals that do us more harm than good. Culture gives us the option of forming our young, and selves into what we need to move forward in this world. Culture enables us to look into the chaos of this world and shape reality into what we need it to be. Many of you will read this and doubt my words, but the fact is that culture is the story that a people tells itself to help them make sense out of the world, and by us being bold enough to snatch our destiny and to begin to work on building a new culture for ourselves speaks volumes, and it calls the Creator and Ancestors to our aid.
Enough of my rant, and now to what I spoke on today. Whole grains are touchy subject, and for years I have heard that we should not consume them. We were told that since bread was made from wheat and other food stuff we needed to steer away from it, but that is a partial truth. The fact is that whole grains have been the building block of cultures all over the globe, including Africa. Many of these whole grains were seen as sacred crops, and the survival of the people were connected to them. The problem comes from man meddling with the process, and dividing these crops into components that separately are poisonous to the body, but if consumed in their original state and intact we have a vital product that can help us in our journey to health. In this video I look at whole grains and compare how grains being processed is very similar to how many of us have been processed, and this man made process not only ruins the grain and makes it deadly to consume, but the process we under go does the same to people. The process takes the grain and the human being out of the natural state causing it to act against it's nature, and moves it to working against itself. We have the opportunity unlike the grain to reverse the process that has been put on us, and move back toward wholeness and health, and in the process rescue the grains of our ancestors, and use it to build a new Culture for ourselves, which will lead to us creating a greater society, and Nation.
