Daily Toast- Ujamaa 413171 (5-6-7 a new way of seeing the world)
It is time for us to begin looking at the world with new eyes. Understanding GNJ's 567 system and applying it to your life will change the world for you. We are suffering because we have been miseducated about ourselves. We are taught about all the limits, and thrust into a world not of our or our ancestors making. As African people we have existed on the periphery of this world long enough, and it is time for us to grab the cover of our culture. Culture is the soul of a people, and a people without soul are zombies. Walking the earth soulless doing the bidding of their masters. The recent addition of zombies eating brains, and as brainless consumers is recent to the zombie lore. The original concept of a zombie was someone that was put up under a curse and was forced to serve. Although the brainless consumer was a great addition. We are caught in the zombie zone, serving others with no benefit to ourselves, but it is now time for us to change this paradigm.
Today is the glorious day Ujamaa and on this day we are looking at the unused resource of our culture. Culture is a powerful weapon against oppression, and this is why ours was destroyed and the parts they could not destroy they discredited. We are made to believe that culture is just about where we are from, some historical high notes that we can brag about, clothes we wear, and etc.. Once again we have been deceived. As I stated earlier culture is the soul of the people, and from this soul arises a peoples worldview, ways of living, economic life, political life, social rules, education, way and rules of war (dealing with enemies of culture), how to deal with interpersonal relationships, diet, and spirituality. All of these things flow through the culture, which is why we need to get back to our culture. We are existing in this cold world without the blanket of our culture to protect us. Culture is a living thing that has to be used and protected if not it will suffer and die. Once again I have to mention that The 21 Day Nguzo Saba Challenge is GNJ's attempt to bring our culture to consciousness, this is where the 5-6-7 comes from. My Culture has revealed to me that the human being is composed of 5 parts, and each part must be attended to for us to come into power. The 5 parts work together to help us receive and decipher information and experiences we face in the world. Within the 5, ideas and symbols are able to take root, as well as be created. The 5 for those that do not know are Intuition, Mental, Emotional, Spiritual, and Physical parts of our being. When these 5 parts are activated and worked by the user they empower the user to begin to make changes in how they chose to live. The 5 when combined can generate the power to free the owner from the hold of the alien spirit that is running rampant in our communities, The 6 is the primary emotions that we experience on the road of life. This was introduces to me by brother Wakesa and his wife sister Afiya from the AYA educational Institute. The primary emotions are Mad, Sad, Scared, Joyous, Peace, & Power. With just a basic understanding on how these emotions work you can change how you interact in the world. When properly seen and listened to emotions begin not only the fuel of action, but a guiding mechanism to your true state which is Peaceful, Powerful, and Joyous. Lastly we have 7 principles that when applied helps resurrect the user and empowers them to move toward liberation, and a true Warrior State.
