I created this Blog to explore SelfMastery, help myself and others by sharing my poetry, insights, stories, proverbs, and hopefully learning from some of your responses.Join the Journey share your experiences and life lessons. Start your day with a sip of Gye-Nyame. Remember support the Journey by visiting the tip jar or purchasing a book. Proceeds go to help others move toward SelfMastery through our Tribe and build a media powerhouse for our community.
The African Yam for years was a purpose that our people lived for and with for years. Watch and learn how consuming this great tuber can help you health wise. It has a lot of benefits and fits right in with the African heritage diet.

be sure to sign up for the 21 Day Nguzo Saba Challenge
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 enough. We picked their corn, cotton, sugar and tobacco, and that wasn't enough. We walked away in abject poverty asking and receiving nothing, and that wasn't enough. We got their education, and that still was not enough. Now it is time that we start moving in our purpose, on purpose. It is time for us to begin building our intuition, mind, emotions, spirit, and body so that we can use them for our own growth. I now this type of talk makes some of you nervous, but please understand that when we start to rise by developing ourselves so does everyone else. We have to focus on us first. This means moving forward to some of our traditions. This means applying nation building principles every day. This means moving in and on purpose. This means taking the time to evaluate your life and identifying who and what is adding and multiplying in your life and pulling them closer, but being brave and strong enough to remove those who are subtracting from you, and bringing division.
I set out years ago to develop something that could help people, and bring value in their life, and it all came together in my 49th year of life. I started the Nguzo Saba Challenge, I began making videos everyday, I started making "That Ambrosia", I started doing my axe' breath almost everyday, I started forcing my self into a cold shower, I started sharing the proverbs, and folktales that have been helping me through my adult life, and began seeing changes. After going through my notes, journals, diaries , and writings I started to notice that they all were pointing to me doing exactly what I am doing now; Sharing with you. Helping you identify the power that is lying in you waiting for you to begin paying more attention to it. So take the time to read over the challenge and sign up, it is free and you receive plenty of extras, suggestions of things to do, and food for thought.
Also I will begin broadcasting the Daily Toast live at 4:30am on FB live Umoja-Nia (only FAM will understand what I just wrote on Kuumba and Imani TBD, but it will go down. I know that most of you wont be up, but the toast is for those that want to take a few minutes to salute their personal ancestors. I need to stress that during this particular post we pour for our direct relatives. Those that want to participate or just watch tune in. If one of your ancestors touch your heart shot them out over the time line, and if I see it I will send a shout out. I am planning to limit this toast to 15 minutes so that I can finish production for my YouTube video. I also realize that some of you may not understand why I would toast my ancestors everyday, and that is cool stick around long enough with me and you will learn why. I also need to explain that these will not be typical libations. Instead of pouring them outward we will be pouring them inwards. We will start by drinking a glass of water together to jump start the body, at least those who see that value in what I am doing will. Next after the water we will toast our ancestors with a healthy drink, I personally use "That Ambrosia", but you can use some herbal tea, fresh juice, water, and etc..
I also need to mention that challenge can start at your leisure. I just provide the information, but I must mention that whenever you start the best day to do so is Umoja, just to get you lined up with the rest of the group.
Peace & 1hunidyears
