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)

Image
 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.

Great Kuumba: There is a lot of power in our culture and the stories we tell. We need to understand how to harness that power, and use it to build new realities for ourselves.

Nia Toast - One Shot: Stop Wasting Your Talent!

 Great Nia: "Waste not want not" is an adage that many of us have heard from the time we were tall enough to understand what the words meant. It is something that has been repeated to us so often that it has become part of our everyday speech. Nia Toast brings you a new outlook on this principle with a radical approach to making your voice heard and using your gifts for positive change in the world. We are all about using our gifts, talents, and skills for good and today's show is no different. We discuss how this applies to those who have been enslaved and exploited by the enemy of our culture, who are giving their best efforts towards advancing the agenda of white supremacy. The tools are all in place for us to change the course of history, but only if we use them correctly. One Shot: Stop Wasting Your Talent! Sign up for the GNJemail List to get our daily insights.

Taking Ourselves Seriously

Image
 Great Ujamaa: In this episode we explore the difference between being serious and taking ourselves seriously. Taking our history seriously, really looking at it, and understanding how we got to where we are today is essential. Taking our principles seriously is also essential. Being serious about them, however, will not get us anywhere. What will? Taking ourselves personally seriously, being accountable and responsible for everything that we do and say, realizing that what truly matters is how we live. If we live with integrity – if we are kind and compassionate towards others – the rest will follow. We can change the world by changing ourselves first. And when I say "we", I mean "you", because you are in charge of your own life. Responsibility and accountability are the keys to making things happen in our own lives. How much do you take yourself personally seriously? How much do you really want to make a change in your life? Do you have enough responsibility and a

Will & Ujima:Will Power, Ujima and the Purpose of Our Community

Image
 Will? What's will? That's the topic of this week's episode of The Will & Ujima podcast! Will is something we all have inside us, but what is it really? The dictionary says that will is "the capacity to decide what to do." It also says that will is "the power to determine one's own actions independently of outside forces." So we have the power to make decisions for ourselves, and those decisions can affect our larger communities. Will can be a powerful thing, and when we work together, we can use our will for some pretty great things. We've seen it time and time again throughout history: when people come together in fellowship to work for a common goal, amazing things can happen. And the more people you bring together in fellowship with your common goal, the more amazing things can happen. So I'd just like to take a moment right now to thank you all for listening, and I hope you enjoy this episode! To get the rest of the article and the

Kujichagulia Toast - Gym Strong, or Life Strong? Which Is More Important? (sample)

Image
Great Kujichagulia:  We are surrounded by fakeness. Fakeness in the media. Fakeness in the products we buy. The clothes we wear. The food we eat. And how about the people you interact with? Are people truly genuine, or are they simply putting on a show for others? What is true strength? What does it look like? With so much fakeness in the world, it has become essential to have strong individuals around us who can fight against it. Strength comes in many forms. There are some people with natural strength that seem to always do the right thing, while other people have strength that they earned based on overcoming obstacles. Everyone has an inner strength that lies dormant within them. Finding this strength and harnessing it can lead to a happier and more successful life by challenging yourself to be unique, not just for others, but for yourself.

How to Overcome Poverty Using Umoja

Image
  Poverty is not the lack of things, but rather the lack of a positive mindset. Umoja is an attempt to find a new way to think about ourselves and our relationships with each other, in order to create a society that benefits everyone. It is about being able to control your own mind, and choosing to make yourself useful, instead of demanding others provide for you. It is about forgetting what you don't have, and learning to appreciate what you do. It's about seeing yourself as part of a larger community, rather than an individual who's asking for charity. It's about working together as one people with one goal - and it begins with making yourself useful. Get the full writeup by joining us on our email list...

Keep The Faith (Sample)

Image
 The thing about faith is that it is invisible. It’s not tangible, but we all have it. Sometimes we need to remind ourselves of the faith we already have. When I was younger, I had a hard time with this. I wanted to know why things happened, and why certain people were born or died. And then I learned that some questions are better left unanswered. Faith itself is the shield around us that protects us from those things we don’t understand. Faith isn’t just about believing in something you can’t see; it’s about believing in yourself and never giving up on your dreams. It’s about fighting for what you believe in and staying strong when everything seems to be going wrong. On todays show we are going to discuss keeping the Faith, Come on in and join us....

Kuumba Toast - Countering Oppression with Creativity (Sample)

Image
  Creativity is how we process the world. It's a by-product of our existence and something we just do. It's also something that can be developed and honed to have a more profound impact on the way we interact with our surroundings. Creativity is often associated with artistic endeavors, but the most powerful creativity is one that goes beyond art. Tapping into your creative potential can be done in many ways. Some people take up hobbies such as painting or music to get them through life. Others take part in political activism and social movements. In today's show, I will examine creativity as an alternative tool with which we can confront institutions of oppression and exploitation, create new communities of mutual aid and cooperation, provide alternative sources of employment, and generate models for human development that are consistent with our high potential as a tribe.

Looking for Nia in All The Wrong Places

Image
  Have you ever woken up in the middle of the night and just stared at the ceiling? I know I have. At that time, I pondered the biggest questions we could ask ourselves - “What’s the purpose of my life? Why am I here and what am I supposed to do? What’s my purpose?” These questions can be difficult to answer, but they are essential. The most effective way to find your purpose is to understand who you are as an individual. However it can be tricky to do that since most of us have so many facets to our personality. To make things even more complicated, each of us has different priorities when it comes to finding our purpose - some people want independence and freedom while others want a sense of belonging. This is why it can be hard to figure out what your purpose is. Is it making tons of money, being a best-selling author, or traveling the world? Or maybe it’s something else entirely. How do you know what will make you happy? As humans we are complex beings and finding our purpose doesn

Myth About Emotions & It's Effects On Ujamaa (Sample)

Image
  The subject of Emotions and the effect it has on our lives, is the most frequently discussed topic. This talk will focus on the "Myth" of emotions and how it is being used against us as a tool to control our actions. This talk will explore the basics of how emotions are used as a tool against us and why they are so important in your life and business. Your life is ruled by two seemingly opposing forces? One is a force of forward (progress) moving energy and the other, a force of slowing us down, resisting change, making us carry unnecessary dead weight. They are in constant conflict, each trying to gain dominion over our lives but here's the problem... Both are trying to draft you. The question then becomes, Which will it be? If you think you can base your actions on wisdom and make progress while resisting your emotions... think again. Your emotions are not separate from you, how you feel has an enormous impact on what you do and how you live your life. Listen in and g

The Secret Power Behind Community and Culture (sample)

Image
  From Ujamaa to Ubuntu, the African experience of community and the empowerment it leads to is well written about. Collective work and responsibility — ujima — is a simple word that carries a significant amount of power. It states that we are responsible for ourselves and each other — not just in our daily interactions, but also in building a better world for us all to live in. Imagine a group of people who truly understand what they do, why they're doing it, and how their problems can be solved by helping others solve their own problems. A group of people with everyday jobs working together towards a common goal. Ujima is a fascinating process in African culture. The concept itself — a synthesis of collectivism and empowerment — seems to be something that can be applied everywhere, not just by Africans. Whether you're simply redefining your job or trying to change the world, Ujima has shown to be an amazingly powerful tool. It's especially significant in education. It'

7 Ways To Use Kujichagulia To Keep Your Eyes On The Prize (Sample)

Image
  Whether you are a professional athlete, a student or someone who wants to lose weight, the goal remains the same. You want to accomplish your desired outcome. Many of us set goals but fail to keep them on target. The reason is we are easily distracted. Our primary focus needs to be on the prize and by that I mean the outcome that we desire. I have found in my experience as an athlete that having a personal coach is extremely valuable and it is also something that I do with clients from time to time. But even when you have a coach it can be easy to lose sight of your intended achievement. This occurs for several reasons, but most of all it is because you become complacent at times and can get wrapped up in other activities and responsibilities. When setting your goals, write them down and put them someplce where you will see them everyday. Write out exactly what it is that you want to achieve then break it down into smaller tasks that will help you reach your intended outcome. Make su

Umoja Toast - (sample)The Nature Of Umoja

Image
  What is the nature of Umoja? Umoja in Swahili means unity, to be one with another. Is it possible to be one with another and still maintain your individuality? I believe so. You might ask, how can you be one with another and still maintain your individuality? The only way this is possible is by expanding your idea of who you are. I am not my body. My body is not me. I am a soul entity that uses my body to interact in this reality. My true self exists within my soul. My soul or spirit is my real self; it has no shape and cannot be seen by the naked eye. If a person loses their sense of being a soul entity then they become imbalanced and disconnected from their realness and true self. This causes them to lose their sense of true identity, as well as their ability to relate to other people in a natural way. They feel alone and isolated from others, which leads them to develop many bad habits such as addictions, unhealthy relationships, depression and other negative behaviors that feed o
