On this day we reflect not only on Kujichagulia, but upon the other principles, and laws that fall on this day.Today is not only the day of self-determination, but it also serves to bring us time to work with Justice and the Law of Correspondence.
Keeping with the theme from last week we will reflect on these principles through the lens of the quote from the "Book Of Coming Forth By Day", that has sparked all kinds of thoughts. " Awaken from thy suffering O thou who lye prostrate! ", we will stop the quote there, because this part illustrates what we need. Kujichagulia is about defining our self for our self, but how is this done? Unfortunately most people have been lulled into a deep sleep, they were cultured, and socially designed into a prostrate state. We have been submitted to a systematic process that strives to keep us unconscious. In the state of unconsciousness we experience self inflicted suffering. Now I believe that this point is important enough to repeat, "we are experiencing self imposed suffering". I know that many will kick back against this point, but we ultimately are inflicting suffering upon ourselves. We have been trained to believe in our helplessness. The systems we have been subjugated to have done an excellent job of convincing us that we are victims of a chaotic universe, and that our lot in life is set. The stories we have been told keep us in our place, with our faces firmly placed in the dirt. imagining all types of horrors. We actually believe that others have control over us and that our destiny lies in others hands. When the fact of the matter is that because we are "lying prostrate" we can't see the truth.
