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

How Your Feelings Stop You From Growing - Daily Toast 611171

Image
Peace FAM: On this powerful day of Imani, I was hit by the thought of feelings. I know the power of feelings when they are properly directed, but I have been held hostage by them as well. Often times we find that how we feel about some task will freeze us up, and stop us from doing certain task. We have to learn to push past how we feel on some of our quest, because our feelings are helping to hold us back. It is human instinct to want to stay comfortable, we seek comfortable position, and we thrive in predictable situations. Even if the thriving is moving us on  a long train ride to destruction. We hang on to old habits even though we can see that they are making us obeist, lazy, sick, miserable, and etc.. We have to be willing sometimes to jump over how we are feeling and get things accomplished. This is a tough process but often for us to make break throughs we have to do this. Our feelings are a guidance system, not a ruler that should command our lives and limit our actions. Fea

Folktales & Proverbs - Daily Toast Nia 69171

Image
Peace FAM: I have been on the grind for years now with, blogging, podcasting, vlogging and now brewing I am finally making inroads on a platform, but I feel I need to explain why I do what I do. I believe that I need to express the Nia that is flowing through me at this time. My purpose is to enlighten, uplift, encourage, and I must be honest to talk. Those that know me, know that this the truth. I believe and have believed for a long time that I was born to talk. I have supported my family with my mouth, I have provided jobs with my mouth, I have raised money with my mouth, and I can continue but I won't. I am driven to do this, and to the dismay of many in my life I continue. I will get up early in the morning to make sure that I am able to reach those that are taking the time out to listen. Hell I will do a show if no one is there, and I fell I need to explain this desire. Because the fact is that I am not alone, many if not all of my readers, listeners, viewers, and drinkers h

Let's Talk About The Life Force - Daily Toast Ujamaa 68171

Image
Peace FAM: You hear me use the term axe' (also written ase', ache'), now is the times for us to build on this concept. Let's talk about this all present life force that coonnects us to everything. This force once it is plugged into will heal us, prolong our lives and attract what we need into our life. Our ancestors recognized this power and called it different things in different cultures, but they all agree that when we learn to control it, we are capable of miraculous things. We have to look deep into this force, and learn to use it to help us in our quest for Peace, Power, and Joy. So tune in family and let's build. Nuff Said I wish you Peace, Power, Joy & 1hunidyears Axe' Axe' Axe'

The Black Woman Public Enemy #1 - Daily Toast Kujichagulia 66171

"All warfare is based on deception" Sun Tzu Peace FAM: Once again I greet you in Peace, Power, Joy & 1hunidyears. I know that many will read the title and come on the page looking for me to go on the attack, since everywhere we look online the Black woman is our oppenent, but you will not get that here, especially today. I chose to start this post of with the Sun Tzu quote, to put it clearly in your mind that we are at war, and if war is about deception then we have to watch the world to see how we are being attacked. Now for years we have thought the Black man was under the gun in America. We have the statistics to prove it, but I want to take some time and question this idea, especially in the light of the quote that is hanging over this whole post. The keyword that I need you to focus on is, deception. How do we know that we are not being deceived by all the information that is being gathered on the plight of the Black man. I know that this may rub some of my

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 Lymphatic System 2

Image
Peace FAM: This subject was so important I felt that I needed to add more time to it. All of the information that I am running into I am throwing out to you to do with as you will. Take some time review, think about and begin to make changes to improve your life. As my ancient ancestors would say, "Physician heal thyself", we are living in a time where we have access to so much information, that anyone that is not taking advantage is truly choosing to be sick. The lymphatic system is in need of your help, and we will explore how to assist it further tomorrow.

Daily Toast- Ujamaa 518171 "The wasted resource of Black Manhood & Black Womanhood

Image
Peace FAM: Wasted resources are killing our community. Especially resources that we have control over. I am going to hit on some sensitive ideas in this article and the video so I need to warn you advance. I woke up and started thinking about the role of gender in a culture, and asked why were they important. Gender roles were established to help bring order in the culture. Each individual was assigned roles at birth, as well as from the community. These roles helped to advance the society. The interaction between the genders produced the life that enabled the culture to exist as well as the community that adhered to the role. Now in these days and times these roles have been allowed to slip into each other forming whole other groups of individuals. Now where you stand on this is your business, and is not part of my discussion, but it is something that I felt that I need to cover. We as Africans in America, also known as Black folks are in no position to be arguing about these gend

I'm Moving!!!! Be sure to come visit

That's right I'm packing up some of my content and moving over to the BlaqSpot . Finally I have a spot made for us by us, and I am going to take full advantage. I'm planning to run adds, and introduce new products over there as well. Of course I will keep my territory out here, but I will be doing some real Culture Building on safe ground. Hopefully many of you will come and visit so that you can get some exclusive stuff. I wonder how many people over there will be willing to take the 21 Day Nguzo Saba Challenge . I thought about building a network but the amount of work and skill it would take to get something like that working and keep it working was beyond me. So I salute the brothers and sisters that spearheaded this project. Now here is where I'm going to loose many of you, BlaqSpot  is not free. Now listen before you take your eyes off  the page, If we want to build we have to pay. Freedom has never been free, nor can it be handed to you. Freedom has to be bought

Daily Toast- Kujichagulia 516171 "This World Is Ours"

Image
We have to change our mindset about the world we exist in. We live here as if we are visitors or this planet, when in fact this entire planet is ours. When we start changing this mind state we can start moving as a group in the direction that we need. When we act as a beggar in the world the world treats you as such. Human rights cant be given, freedom can't be given, sovereignty can't be given, all of these must be taken. In order to take these things we have to activate the power of Kujichagulia. We have to re-establish a collective sense of ownership. The fact is that this planet is ours, and we have been allowing others to squat on our inheritance. We have been trained to not compete, and to be satisfied, better yet feel luck to come in last place. We believe other peoples myths, treat them as fact, and allow them to take hold of land, possessions, our children, and even our lives with a fight. No one has more right to the land and resources of this planet than you. The on

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- Umoja 424171 "Drama"

Image
Peace FAM: I hope this day finds you standing in Peace, Power, & Joy, our true natural state. Unfortunately we are bombarded with anti-virtues that strives to pull us from this natural state into a spiral that often ends in a wreck. One of these your anti-virtues that i will focus on today is "drama". Drama is an inescapable part of life, but the issue is when it is magnified, stressed upon by others, and then thrust into your existence. FAM the truth of the matter is that you do not have to buy into others over dramatization of life events. Actually it will benefit you greatly if you did not. We are surrounded by these over dramatic episodes today in ways that our ancestors never were. We are bombraded with news, timelines, comments, phone calls, tweets, photos, and etc., that strive to keep us involved and a part of needless drama. This need is driven by a lack of attention, and a lack of purpose. the drama springs up and begin to eat at the unity of the group, and eve

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. I have Identified my purpose and now I have found a mechanism to share it with the world. 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. Nia is the day where we are able to refocus our efforts and get after what it is we were born to do. 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. This is exactly why I have developed the challenge . I have spent my life watching my people struggle under others banners, we learned the language and that wasn't eno

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
