What happened to the desire to learn? Where has it gone in our youth, and most of our adults? I have the pleasure of talking to youth and adults on daily basis, and appears that a majority of them have know desire to receive new information. could it be that all the media has made people feel that they have no need to learn. All they have to do is look something up on their smart phone. I would be satisfied if I witnessed this going on more but I don't.
Now I must state this is simply my observation and i am sharing it because I am looking for someone out there that can encourage me by stating that they are around a majority of friends, family, a students that are out in the world trying to learn and share new information. I am seriously wondering if we have spent so much time boosting self esteem that we have some how killed the curiosity. Learning takes some form of humbleness, in fact humbleness is one of the first steps to learning and being receptive to learning. have we turned our schools into social clubs where the young and old alike can gather and talk about the bull shit that infest our society.
I had a conversation with some of my students and had an epiphany about the word ignorance. The word ignore is buried within it. To be ignorant means if we look at it, to ignore reality, truth, and anything outside the base of what you think or believe. Now a days ignorance is running rampant and definitely can plug into the zombie virus I spoke about in my last post (check it out). When we shut our self off from reality we put ourselves in a dangerous place, when we ignore the facts we allow ourselves to be lead by the nose like a beast of burden by those that are manipulating what we believe or think we know. This makes us slaves to those who are manipulating the facts and/or our beliefs. So those on the Journey make sure you keep an open mind and question everything.

We pour libations/ to connect with all that is/ and to cleanse our hearts/ I need to start this article by stating this information is based on my personal experience. I have been pouring libations for at least 20 years all over the country and personally. Libations for me is a process of remembering, and connecting or re-connecting to not only the Spirit but everything around us . When we pour libations we are opening ourselves as well as the group to the axe ' of the entire Universe . I first must admit that I do not belong to a group, sect or religious order. I am a lay man who have made a personal connection with the world, and the spirit. By pouring Libations we strengthen these relationship. So let me define a few things first so that we can be on the same page. Libations - the process of pouring or giving a sacrifice to form a connection with this world and the spiritual realm. Spirituality - the state of establishing and maintaining relationships Axe&
Finding salvation/ Through moving to my limits/ Run, Gye-Nyame, Run/ While doing a Warrior training, we began discussing the importance of the Pledge to our organization. We began to walk through the pledge as a group: "I am a Gye-Nyame Man and I was born for greatness, My greatness flows from my Potent Center. I Pledge to find and connect with my Potent Center." At this point the question was raised about our personal center, and being able to harness the power it holds. Our discussion first hit the points around the personal power that each of us have, but then the discussion turned from the mysterious power, to the location of our center. We often discuss the power of the center but we never talk about how to find it. Through the process of elimination we discovered that we had a bunch of fancy names for where our center lies (soul, mind, chakra, and etc..), but we had no definite directions to the center. From here the warriors began to ask QUESTions. Through
