The Power Of Bitter

Image
Peace FAM: The bitter parts of life help build us up, and prepare our body and mind for the goodness that eventually will come. We have been trained to avoid the bitter. We are told not to complain, and to grin and bare it, we must monitor what we say and how we say it to make sure we don't spit out bitter words. We are surrounded by food that are packed with sugar and if we go to any grocery store we will be hard pressed to find something bitter. We have advanced humanity to a point where we can possible go a life time and never experience bitter word, or bitter food. We have reached the pinnacle of civilization, for now we can shelter the members from all the bitter that life has to offer. This process is complete but we have lost a lot in this trade, and many may want to go back and make some adjustments in our lives. Bitter helps us grow, and it strengthens us. It helps get our creativity unstuck, just like physical bitters jump starts our immune system, and stimulate digest

Parasites Are Everywhere - Daily Toast Ujima 531171

Image
Peace FAM: We toasted the ancestors in a grand fashion this morning. I Love and Appreciate my FAM coming out and support this daily ritual. We have been doing this since the beginning of the New Year, and have been rolling along. I finally have a platform where I can share what I know, and more importantly what I know. I have to apologize because some days I get caught up, and hit one of my rants, but those that have been rolling with me on GNJ, already know what it is. I feel that "My people perish because of a lack of knowledge", and I am here to challenge that. So Join GNJ, like and subscribe and let's learn and share together. Today I went another tangent about these parasites. I have been freaked out every since I started reading about them, and the many forms that they take. I was also amazed at how many ailments they are connected to. Many of us are suffering needlessly, and taking medical treatments that may be breaking our bodies down. Family I think that it is

The Biggest Story

Image
Being a lover of folktales I   feel it is my responsibility to share a good one when I find one. Folktales, myths, legends, and stories are important to all culture because it is the main way that the culture is taught and passed from generation to generation. Folktales connect us to our ancestors and to learning like nothing else. Our brains are wired for stories, and it is a tradition that need to be brought back. Although story telling is a billion dollar industry, we have allowed this talent go dormant in our community, unless we are talking about unhealthy activities. So my friend here is a story that I was reintroduced to, and I thought I would share it. I am asking you for your help. I need for you to view the short video and help me decide which story is the biggest. I give directions in the video, please take the time to vote, and I will share the final results on the "Daily Toast", sometime next week. Remember be bold and take the 21 Day Nguzo Saba Challenge , an

Daily Toast- Imani 515171 "Hold your Breath"

Image
Peace FAM: I have been pushing heavy on the breathing and will continue to do so family. The breathing exercises that I am sharing and talking about will change your life. On this powerful day of Imani I discussed the retention of the breath. Family, breathing right not only contributes to your physical health it helps you with the other 4 parts of your being. I am stressing this in the blog, 21 Day Nguzo Saba Challenge , and especially those in GNJ's Warrior training (coming soon). Breath is the key that helps unlock the trauma, correct the body, clear the mind, and provide us with the energy needed to build the culture that a nation can spring from. I am saying that how we breath set us into a rythm that will either put us in time with oppression, or  freedom. Most of us are breathing in the rythm of slavery, and oppression. Now let's look at the retention of the breath. When you consciously hold your breath you are making an effort to take control of your your being. Bre

Daily Toast- Nia 46171 (Helping Others Find There Nia Through A Challenge)

Image
Peace FAM: I greet you on this beautiful Day of Nia. I am up and ready to get at the world. I have recently launched the 21 Day Nguzo Saba Challenge , and I feel good.

Click the link and allow me to help you identify your purpose, or if you know your purpose already allow me to help you intensify your pursuit. It is time that we stop living our lives according to other peoples rules. Especially when those others base their economic growth on your failure.

Stop wasting the little bit of time you have on this earth making others reality better, future secure. Let's begin to plug into our true power and unleash it on the world.

Daily Toast- Ujamaa 46171 (Misplaced Emotinal Energy)

Image
Peace FAM: Pardon the lateness, but the files with the effects are bigger than I imagined and this one took 2 hours to upload, so that throws off my time table and I have to wait for a break to post. Break time and today is moving in slow motion for me. I am struggling on the warrior diet, because my body is telling me that it wants to eat, but it is more of a want than a need. Yesterday I ate my meal, and could not finish it. This was shocking because I thought I was hungry then as well. Taming the body is a Herculean task but I am up for it. I know you are reading this wondering what does the warrior diet have to do with today's topic. I am discovering that I am eating to feel emotional lacks in my life. Eating gives me a sense of comfort. Like many of you who will take the Challenge , you will begin to discover new things about yourself, and you will begin to recognize where you are wasting alot of energy. Our emotions are the driving force in our lives, and if we don't l

Daily Toast- Ujima 329171 (Bull without a Herd)

Image
Great Day Fam Last night I went to sleep wondering what I would talk about in the morning. When I woke up the folktale that I am focusing on this week popped up. The questions that hit me was where was this bull's herd. I know that cows and bulls are social animals, and exist in groups, so where was this bulls group? This bull was isolated and vunerable to the world and the lion. The only thing that kept him from being a victim was his size and strength. The lion was able to get the bull to accompany him because he was alone with friends and family being able to give advice. This situation sounds like the situation that many Black people are in. Where is your group, tribe, and family to advise you away from those lions waiting to take advantage of you. Watch the video and let me know what you think.

This Diet Could Save Your Life "African Heritage Diet"

Image
Peace Fam: GNJ is all about helping you change your mental diet. I'm always trying to provide thought provoking ideas that are designed to help you start seeing the world in a new way. I figured I would leave the physical diet to the experts, but then I ran into this article about the African Heritage Diet  and I had to share this information. Now there are plenty of healthy diets out there, but this one rang a bell for me because they are taking the cultural route. The fact is that human beings developed over thousands of years eating certain foods, and each group have cultural foods that they lean on, except African people in America. Our diet was forced upon us with no concern about the effects on the 5 parts of our being. Now I believe it is time for us to start snatching back this important part of our legacy. I especially like when they stress eating in groups, as a matter of fact they described the dinner table as "the healing table" Goto the site for yourself a

Daily Toast- Umoja 313171 (take time to review)

Image
Peace FAM: Great Umoja, and welcome to the start of new cycle. Take time in this cycle and review all of the principles and how you have practiced each one. Now is the time of manifesting all of the work from the previous cycle. We also talk about being careful about what we allow into our minds, and how by not monitoring our thoughts we allow things into our mind that manifest in our lives to hold us back. Checkout the video and let me know what you think. Peace &1hunidyears

Daily Toast- Imani 312171 (Focused Faith)

Image
Peace FAM; Here is the Vlog from Imani, sorry it is late but it has been up on YouTube all night, just waiting for some eyes to hit it. Yesterday was one of the rare days where I did not have anything to do so me and my kids once again got busy and had a pancake breakfast (Broke my Diet today's in a row, but now I'm back on). I love spending time with these little folks even though it can be challenging at times. I have to always remember that we are generational people, and my goal to help them remember why they are here. Today I try to keep the theme of the week in mind and discuss learning to focus our faith.  I wish you peace hope you enjoy, and feel free to commit. Nuff said Peace & 1hunidyears
