Harmony in Self: The Liberating Power of Catharsis

Harmony in Self: The Liberating Power of Catharsis In the grand orchestra of life, each individual carries a distinct melody that shapes our journey. However, societal norms often mute these notes, leaving a symphony unfinished. This blog post invites you to explore the power of catharsis – a concept deeply rooted in the liberation of the soul and the embrace of raw, genuine emotions. It's not just about letting go; it's about tuning into the rhythm of your inner world and allowing it to resonate freely. Through poignant narratives and thoughtful reflections, we'll journey into the heart of catharsis. We'll discover how the intentional release of emotions can be a conduit to profound personal growth and a deeper understanding of our authentic selves. From the disciplined silence of a military chant to the liberating shouts of Simba sessions, we recognize the transformative potential of giving voice to our innermost feelings. Yet, this is only the beginning. For those wh

Belonging To A Conscious Community (Tribing Up)

Peace FAM: I spend a lot of time thinking about our communtiy, and how to best structure it so that we can build something that is lasting. I truly believe in legacy, and understand that I am responsible for the next 7 generations at least. This is why I get up and do my show, because I am trying to add value to my community and build it. For me this is a lifestyle and as uncomfortable as it can be sometimes I know that it is my responsibilty. I have to reach out and build with like minded folks, as well as battle with some that disagree, but the conversation must be waged. I believe that if we do nothing we are condeming our futre generations to continues servitude to a system that will always put their needs last. We must develop structures that will defend our future, and demand from the powers that be, what is owed to us. We must build instituitons that are for us, and controled by us if not, we will end up as a foot note in history. Human beings are social creatures, and that is

The Path Of The Warrior

Peace FAM:  Sitting here on this beautiful Holy Day that has been set aside for one of our Ancestor Martin Luther King, I can't help but to reflect on the warrior path. There are many misconception about this concept, and many people are probably confused on why I would write an article talking about the warrior path & mentioning MLK. For me personally The Honorable Martin Luther King is a perfect example of  a person on the warrior path. Most of us define the idea of warrior by what we can do, but the warrior path is about what we won't do. I have been quoting Amos Wilson for the last few weeks, and I ran across a definition that he gave for manhood, but this definition is not limited to men. This idea that he puts out is good for warriorship as well. He states that "being a man is the mastery of impulses", I believe that this is the key to warriorship as well. Being able to face pain, and a ability to suffer are all good traits for a  warrior, but all of them

Folktales As Tools Of Liberation

Peace FAM: I'm sitting at my computer preparing for my presentation to the village and I just need to get a few thoughts down, and figured I was over due for another post on my blog. It has been a long time since I have sat down to actually write, I am use to talking to the cameras as I stream my thoughts, but at this moment I need to organize my thoughts, and prepare to talk to my larger family. It is always a humbling thing for me to be invited to share my perspective. In order to get my thoughts across in the proper way I want to use this platform to construct a discussion about the power of tales, myths and legends, and their importance to our freedom struggle and personal growth. Folktales are just stories that have moved beyond the first teller of the tale. Folktales are born when a story grows beyond the original teller. The tell and the characters of the story grow and move into the pantheon of the people from which the tell was told. These stories act as conduit of info
