Daily Toast- Ujamaa 413171 (5-6-7 a new way of seeing the world)

Peace FAM:
It is time for us to begin looking at the world with new eyes. Understanding GNJ's 567 system and applying it to your life will change the world for you. We are suffering because we have been miseducated about ourselves. We are taught about all the limits, and thrust into a world not of our or our ancestors making. As African people we have existed on the periphery of this world long enough, and it is time for us to grab the cover of our culture. Culture is the soul of a people, and a people without soul are zombies. Walking the earth soulless doing the bidding of their masters. The recent addition of zombies eating brains, and as brainless consumers is recent to the zombie lore. The original concept of a zombie was someone that was put up under a curse and was forced to serve. Although the brainless consumer was a great addition. We are caught in the zombie zone, serving others with no benefit to ourselves, but it is now time for us to change this paradigm.
Today is the glorious day Ujamaa and on this day we are looking at the unused resource of our culture. Culture is a powerful weapon against oppression, and this is why ours was destroyed and the parts they could not destroy they discredited. We are made to believe that culture is just about where we are from, some historical high notes that we can brag about,  clothes we wear, and etc.. Once again we have been deceived. As I stated earlier culture is the soul of the people, and from this soul arises a peoples worldview, ways of living, economic life, political life, social rules, education, way and rules of war (dealing with enemies of culture), how to deal with interpersonal relationships, diet, and spirituality. All of these things flow through the culture, which is why we need to get back to our culture. We are existing in this cold world without the blanket of our culture to protect us. Culture is a living thing that has to be used and protected if not it will suffer and die. Once again I have to mention that The 21 Day Nguzo Saba Challenge is GNJ's attempt to bring our culture to consciousness, this is where the 5-6-7 comes from. My Culture has revealed to me that the human being is composed of 5 parts, and each part must be attended to for us to come into power. The 5 parts work together to help us receive and decipher information and experiences we face in the world. Within the 5, ideas and symbols are able to take root, as well as be created. The 5 for those that do not know are Intuition, Mental, Emotional, Spiritual, and Physical parts of our being. When these 5 parts are activated and worked by the user they empower the user to begin to make changes in how they chose to live. The 5 when combined can generate the power to free the owner from the hold of the alien spirit that is running rampant in our communities, The 6 is the primary emotions that we experience on the road of life. This was introduces to me by brother Wakesa and his wife sister Afiya from the AYA educational Institute. The primary emotions are Mad, Sad, Scared, Joyous, Peace, & Power. With just a basic understanding on how these emotions work you can change how you interact in the world. When properly seen and listened to emotions begin not only the fuel of action, but a guiding mechanism to your true state which is Peaceful, Powerful, and Joyous. Lastly we have 7 principles that when applied helps resurrect the user and empowers them to move toward liberation, and a true Warrior State.

Daily Toast- Ujamaa 46171 (Misplaced Emotinal Energy)

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 learn how to harness them they will tear us apart. Now I need to make myself clear, I am not talking about shutting them down, and pretending we don't have them. I am talking about learning to use them, I dare to say even aim them. Yes your emotions can be aimed and utilized to push you toward your goals. Our ancestors did it, and our enemies are presently using it against us. When you don't have emotional control over yourself you leave a untapped energy source that others will strive to use. Groups have emotional energy as well and can be guided and manipulated to benefit others. This is what is happening to us as individuals and as groups. we invest energy into all sorts of endeavors that do not benefit us. I am simply suggesting that those that are reading this and in Gye-Nyame Journey should be learning ways to harness the emotional energy of ourselves, our tribe, our community, and others to move us to our greatness.
