This idea of reciprocity applies to everything in life, from our friendships and relationships to our jobs and even our religion. Reciprocity is essential in all of these aspects of our lives because it creates a bond between people that would not exist otherwise. If you buy someone a drink at a bar or make sure they get home safe after drinking too much, they will recognize your kindness in some way or another and feel obligated to do the same for you in return. It is this that we have to build upon and make stronger if we are to move our Tribes to the next level. To get the full article you have to sign up for the GNJ Email List: Follow

Ujima Toast - The Four Pillars That Support Ujima (sample)

 Great Ujima: If you grew up in a typical Westernized household, then chances are you don’t maintain the practices of proper breathing and drinking enough water. The culturally appropriate diet that many continue to eat is overloaded with sugar and carbohydrates instead of culturally accepted vegetables, fruits, legumes, and minimal starches. In addition, our society has embraced sitting as the go-to position for enjoying entertainment or staying productive. This goes against fundamental movement that includes getting in touch with your body through proper stretching and strengthening exercises. As a result of not adopting these pillars, our overall health suffers. We become disorganized and are unable to address both internal disorganization as well as connect to others on a deeper level. On today's show we will hit this discussion head on by introducing our listeners to the "4 pillars of Gye-Nyame" and it's need in the procees of Ujima. The 4 pillars of Gye-Nyame,

The "Self" in Kujichagulia

Image
  In our culture, the self is a powerful being. Kujichagulia or self-determination is that power of the self. The power to control one's destiny and create one's own path in life without fear or guilt. To be able to live freely in your own skin without the fear of being controlled by other people's opinions, judgments or expectations. The self is the ultimate being and as such, it should not be oppressed. It is the most perfect aspect of being and as such, nothing can be greater than it. Our oppressors want us to believe that they are larger than life and that they are in control of our destinies. They want us to believe that we are powerless, unworthy and incapable of making decisions for ourselves. They want to control our minds so that we become followers instead of leaders, but this does not have to be so. Follow Listen to "Kujichagulia Toast - The "Self" in Kujichagulia" on Spreaker.

The Revolutionary Practice Of Umoja

Image
In today's show, we're going to look at the Umoja principle, and I'm going to try to explain it in a way that makes it more accessible. We need to bring the power of Umoja into our own lives. The first step is to understand and incorporate the principle into our day-to-day life. Then, we can begin to spread it within our tribes and communities, and then, hopefully, around the world.

Learning To Trust in Your Ability

Image
In today's podcast I want to talk about trusting yourself. We are all so worried about what others think of us that we lose sight of who we are and our abilities. The more you work on mastering your ability the more you understand that it doesn't matter what other people think. You can create the life you want to live regardless of what others may say or do. When you trust in your ability everything else will falls into place. You will stop worrying about others and feel empowered to make the changes that need to be made for yourself. The best part is once you can trust in your ability it will become easier and easier until one day you wake up and realize that life is not half as bad as it seemed before. Trust in your ability to live a better life. Follow Listen to "Imani Toast - Learning To Trust in Your Ability" on Spreaker.
