I have made it to day five of my fast, and we are in the last week of the 3rd cycle in the year of Kuumba. I know that is a mouth full, but for those that are serious about making the change this is one of the keys that we are sharing with you. Being on the day of Nia, we have to surround ourselves with meaning. We have to eliminate accidents, and begin to grasp the knowledge that is around us that can help us build the “Best Life”. I just defined how the time cycle for our challenges work, and I will post up a sample of the calendar so that you can see for yourself. We are very serious here at Gye-Nyame Tribe, we are are her to help you build your and your tribes life, but we have to get you to the point of understanding the power of Nia, and learn to not only define (Kujichagulia), but put a purpose on everything around you. Especially things that you use daily. That is what we did with conquering the days of the week, the weeks of the year, and the years. Everyday those that have immersed themselves in this system will have a reminder of their purpose, just by reciting the name of the day. Can you say the same?
“Our word for today is TRIBAL. We must build a community of like-minded people with the same purpose, and that can hold each other accountable to that goal. The real true self is just behind your nose, don't be fooled!!!”
Nia is purpose as we covered before, and will continue to cover it until you get it. Purpose requires us to exercise Imani within ourselves so that we can find our purpose. Sometimes the way may be blocked, but we have to push forward, because a wo/man without a purpose is like a ship without a rudder. We will tend to go in circles until we hit the rocks. The #NguzoSabaChallenge gives us the time to really sit with this principle and find out what it is that we need to be doing. This principle also requires the same process for a group to move to another level. The lack of Nia and Imani is why many of our people and organizations are stuck.
“The Nguzo Saba Challenge is a way to rise up and free ourselves from the chains that

I can hear many of you screaming about the beautiful mission statements that you wrote for the organization and your business. I just want to say that although you may have paid for it, that mission, goal, or whatever fancy word they are using now to describe it does not belong to you. It was not created for you, it was written not for yourself, your tribe, your community, but it was written to impress your masters. You wanted something to show that you are educated, and that you deserve funding, as grants or loans. Many of us are not operating for our purpose. We have fancified a job, threw a few decorations on it, and believe we are doing something. Many of us operate with more Imani in the enemy's stuff than we ever will with our own, and that is why success eludes us. Our fates no matter how much we know, learned and speak against white supremacy, all of our boats sail from the wind of our enemies.
“It is very important that we learn how to become independent of the enemy.”
The thing that we are trying to get more people to understand is that the wind that I spoke of in the last paragraph is an illusion. It is an illusion bolstered upon by people who believe in their stuff, and have forced others to see and live in the illusion. Now it is time for us to do our own magic. Once we begin to plug into our true Nia, and begin looking at our responsibilities where we are in life. For example, are you an elder, a nation or tribe builder, or a warrior? Where are you in your personal life cycle (hero’s journey model)? Where is your tribe in its journey? If we start to ask these questions and discuss them within our mind sets, and set our minds to get the impossible done, we will change the world.
“This is the time to make the impossible happen.”
Many get overwhelmed because we are moving purely on fact, rather than learning from our ancestors, and our enemies. They are moving in and through their own myths. Where are your myths? Because it is the myths that help us exercise our Imani, as well as help us identify our purpose. Sounds crazy and it maybe, but there is a reason why all people especially those that are winning now and in the past where into myths big time.
“Where is our myth?”
I am going to stop right here and let you get a look at the matrix that I have been struggling to put together. The #NguzoSabaChallenge is the key to your freedom. Come on in and learn how to use your culture, and our principles to reshape our world. Get on our email list.....
