The End Didn't Come, or Did It???

Well it is the 12-25-2012 and the world didn't end. So that means that I will have to pay these damn billls... Well since we are still here this simply means that we have more time to get life right. We can make changes in our lives that will move us toward what we view as happiness. For some of us the world did end, some of us watched the old world die and a new one emerge from the flames like a phoenix. I love the symbolism of the phoenix because it teaches us that life is a cycle of birth and death, and the cycle never ends. The death that I am referring to is the death of the reason to stay ignorant. With all this social networking, all this access to information by way of the internet, and the world getting smaller their is only one way that people can stay in the old world and that is by choosing to stay blind. Yes this is a choice, and by choosing to close our eyes we will doom ourselves to the way things were rather the how they could be. As people being born in this dynamic time we have an opportunity to change the world forever. We have the opportunity to destroy the old world and its views. We can move from the limited world view that promote scarcity, and fear, or we can move into a mindset of abundance and love. It is that simple, all changes must happen in the mind first. If we don't change our minds we will not be able to see the opportunities. We will hang on to the old and truly destroy ourselves and the world we inhabit.
Looks like the Gye-Nyame symbol 
Prophesies are nothing but warnings not facts. People would rather punk out to the warnings rather than heed the words and make the necessary changes. Has it never bothered you that all the prophesies that we are taught or even broadcasted in the media are all terrible. You mean to tell me that with all the time that humans have been on this planet we have not had a single civilization with a positive prophesy of the development of the world. We must realize that most of these cultures believed in harsh realities and lived in rough times, and their prophesies spoke about their civilization. Think about the arrogance that we have in our present world. We believe that the universe revolves around us and if what we have fall the entire world and maybe the universe will fall with it. Our ancestors felt the same way about their world and times, you can see it in the prophesies and holy books of many of the ancient peoples this includes the Kemites, Isrealities, Aztecs, Mayans, and etc.. Human beings fear instability, chaos, and change this things feel us with a since of dread and when we project these feelings into the future we paint pictures filled with fear. Some of these pictures become prophesies.
In this new time I am viewing a world worth being in, a world where my children will be able to prosper and be happy. I look into the future and see a mystery which does not evoke dread, but a wonder and a desire to face the adventure like the heroes that I read about. We have been given a wonderful chance in this new millennium to move toward what we want rather than to run from what we don't want. So the end the end of the world has happened for me and I stand on the edge of an unexplored land just waiting to embrace me with all the good and bad it can throw at me. Feel free to move forward with me grasp your principles, and change your mind.
Nuff said
Peace and 1hunidyears

Against All Odds- Preston J. Harrison

 Against All Odds

Destiny surrenders
born as an underdog,
I was raised by a giant
to learn to see through the fog.
The coast was always guarded
and sometimes would be clear
for hope , faith and dreams
could only come but very near.
I looked around and found
no one I could resemble,
none just like me truly
trying hard to be so nimble.
I kept my dream a secret
though my ambition told them all.
My mouth kept shut,
my eyes wide open
to see those before me fall.
"Not my fate ", I told myself
as others claimed they heard me say.
I declared my life my own
then out on faith I made my way.

Moving to a New Year and a New View

We are down to the last few months of the year, and now is the time to begin developing our selves for what is to come. To help those on the Journey I will begin making the "Player's Pyramid" series from my radio show available again. I will begin dropping links so that you don't have to search through the archives.
I will first begin with the 7 tools needed in the process and then we will move into the Principles.
For those that want to use the book to follow along I will also provide the link to my page where you can purchase it. Thank you for another spectacular year and I will share with you soon.

The First Tool - the radio broadcast

Here is the link for the book: "The Player's Pyramid"


For those that would like to join  the conversation about this book and information presented in it here is a link:  Player's Pyramid

Initiation by Imagination- Lost story of Gye

“Elder we hear many stories in Gye-Nyame, but very few about Gye himself.” I stated as we sat in the shop drinking coffee and smoking hookah. This elder was hard to catch up with, and even if you caught up with him you were not guaranteed to be blessed with a conversation. So I planed to take advantage of every minute that he blessed me with.
“You are right young man there are not many stories about Gye that we share, but they do exist, and at the right time they appear to those who earnestly seek them.” the elder said as he sat back holding the hookah stem enjoying the flavor he had chosen.
“Elder will you share one with me?” I asked hoping for a yes...
“Young man it will be my pleasure, I have heard a lot about you and the work you have been doing in the tribe, so I feel it is time for you to get more info about our mythic founder.” He then passed me the hookah, and took a sip of his coffee. Looking at me very seriously, “make sure you take care of this story and do not pass it to anyone unworthy of it. In this story there is great wisdom listen closely.”
He took another sip of coffee and began.

“Now before Gye disappeared, it is told to us that he had two last students one by the name of Sage, and another by the name of Elder. Both of these men are remembered in history for their names have become synonymous with being wise.
In the final years of Gye it was said that he had a strange way of picking his initiates, because he wanted to find people who could truly represent what Gye-Nyame people should stand for. He had begun to give up on the Gye-Nyame people and had witnessed them devolve into a greedy, war like state. They had begun to use the wisdom passed on to them by Gye via the Nyame people for material gain alone. Gye had separated himself from the Gye-Nyame and lived a more recluse type of existence.”
The elder stopped and took the hookah and took a hit and then took another sip of coffee.
“It was said that Elder sought out  Gye to learn the true wisdom that it was said that he had. When Elder approached Gye, he was welcomed with open arms. Gye offered Elder a meal after his long journey. Elder was happy to feast with this legend. So Gye called for water so that they could prepare for the feast, but no one ever came. Gye began to wash his hands and look at Elder as if something was wrong with him. Gye then asked Elder why he was not washing his hands. Elder was standing still not knowing what to do because there was no water or a servant present with water for him to wash his hands, but Gye was washing his hands as if someone was there. Elder figured that it was a joke and decided to play along with Gye. he sat down and began to act as if he was washing his hands. Elder even thanked the imaginary person for bringing the water. After this Gye order for the food to be brought out, and they waited and as far as elder could see no one came. Gye began to thank the servants for the imaginary food that began to fill the table before them. Gye began to eat, and looked at Elder as if he was crazy for not enjoying the food. Gye told him to eat as much as he wanted and Elder looked at him as if he was crazy, but decided to play along. Gye began to describe in detail each dish that was laid before them, and also discussed how good each dish was. Elder played along, and also complemented Gye on his choice of food. Gye began to describe each dish in detail, and they ate or pretended to eat for hours. Elder acted as if he enjoyed each dish and continued to compliment Gye on his choice of each dish. When they finished eating Gye order for wine to wash the meal down. By this time Elder had got the hang of it and he also thanked the imaginary servant for the wine and began to drink up. They drank and had a good conversation about life, and the joy of a good meal. Strangely Elder felt full and also began to feel the effect of the wine.  
At the end of dining Gye asked Elder to follow him outside. Elder got up and followed Gye. Gye looked out at the night sky as Elder stood next to him. Gye pointed up and described a bright star in the western sky. Elder could not see the star. He squinted and stared and continue to look for the star. A few moments passed and Elder began to see what looked like a star, but it was very bright and eventually began to block out all the stars around it. Elder yelled out of excitement that he could see the star, and Gye asked him to describe it. Elder told him that he saw a silver star shining so brightly right above the horizon that he was surprised that he had never noticed it before. Gye hugged the young man and said, “My son, I have found you”, Elder was shocked by this and wondered what Gye meant by this statement. Gye told the young man, “I have not taken any students from the Gye-Nyame lately because they have lost the internal sight and they have ignored the power of the internal vision. You my son have demonstrated the ability to use your internal eye to see all that I have offered you. Rather than immediately protesting that their was no food you still sat and ate with me, rather than protesting that there was no wine you sat and partook, and even began to feel the effects of both. You unknowing witnessed the power of your own mind and its ability to guide your axe’. “ Gye passed and waited for a question from the young man. When he did not respond Gye continued. “ You have also generated your personal star of destiny that will guide you from here throughout your life. That star that you described is yours and only you can see it. My son that star will guide you to greatness. Take care of it by looking toward it often. I will continue your lessons, but for now we can return into the tent and eat.” When they entered the tent all of the food that Gye described during their game was present. Servants had made their presence known and placed all the dishes down. The two now entered not as two strangers but as teacher and student. Gye sat down to eat, and Elder looked at him and said “Master I hate to turn down the meal that you offer but I am full from the meal we just ate, and I am feeling a little shaky from the wine can I please have a place to lay down.”

The elder was still holding the hookah and smiling as he finished the tale. “Elder became one of Gye’s greatest student and eventually kept the true teachings of Gye alive after Gye vanished from this world. Elder and Sage where the last two to have sat at the feet of Gye and our tribe owes their existence to the fact that Gye’s true wisdom was passed down to us through these two men.”
I was grateful for the story but it just caused more questions to rise up in my mind.
What happened to Gye?
How were this lessons passed down?
If Gye didn't rule the Gye-Nyame people who did?
