Late Night Hookah

First, before I get into my post, I want to send shots out to my youngest daughter who made it to the world on December 27 2012 at exactly 6:14... so from this day she will be Known as Ms.614.. I don't believe in coincidence so ms.614 or Sasha confirms that I am where I supposed to be and doing what I am doing.

Some may wonder why I promote using the Internet to it's fullest.  I suggest that everyone gets a blog, twitter, face book, spreaker, g+ and what ever us is out there. "My reasons are personal" (in my Vito Corleone voice)... Legacy ladies and gents. We are living in the most dynamic time in human history, and each of us have the ability to through our voice, writing, ideas, and etc. out into the world. We have been taught to stay quiet, and not share what's on our mind, but I am saying stop hiding your light. Shine for the world, for you may project the beam that may free someone. Stop worrying about those who don't agree with you or that you may not be the best speaker, or writer. None of that shit matters anymore, if you don't believe me just turn on your radio, or the TV and see what's playing. Mindless bullshit that is disguised as entertainment. You heard me, or read what I said. With all this mindless shit being shot at us and our children we have the right and the obligation to through our hats into the fight. It appears to me that the world is being run by demons, and people set on the destruction of this planet. Now I am not on that "conspiracy shit", but I am not blind, nor stupid. I can see when people are being led or baited into following something. The question what is baiting us and where is it leading.
Now here is where my thoughts may get a little spooky, but those on the Journey should be used to this coming from me. When we look into ancient history, myth , and ritual we can see the road map. We are being led to a metaphorical alter for sacrifice. Now I won't go into the specifics of who the alter belongs to, but I will share with you this fact... the best type of sacrifice and most powerful are those that go willingly. When you willing step up to an alter offering your life,mind, and or spirit you empower the ones that are making the sacrifice. You empower what they believe and solidify there followers behind their cause, belief, and or deity. This is not new, this shit has been going on since before the beginning and will continue long after it is over. Your mind is the ultimate prize, so guard it with all your might. Don't allow your self to be led by the nose like a beast to slaughter. wake up and fight....
This is why I am telling you to use this weapon called the Internet to your advantage while you can. Get your thoughts out there, and help change this shit around. The world is big enough for all of us, and there are enough resources for us to live comfortably. As humans we are innovative enough to do these things, but we are so busy being led from fear to fear that we can't see the truth. We are involved in a global system that eats its young. it steals minds, and soul energy so that you can make a better unthinking robot. Then you surrender who you to be what this world wants you to be.
"Fuck That!"
I started the Journey to help people see who they really are, I send my thoughts out to those that are doing the same or at least looking for something different. You are the most powerful being in the Universe, but you are scared of this fact. You have been stripped down wo/man rather than being a Wo/Man. You have sold your soul for a bag of silver, and didn't even haggle about the price, because you believe that you are not worth more than some nickles and dimes. I am here to tell you that you are priceless, and should not sell your self short. Look back over your life, and remember the miracles that happened through you. remember those moments where everything made sense to you. This world's system is designed to beat this out of you... it's what we call in the street "Game"... Here is how it works...
1. pick your target
2. make them feel comfortable around you
3. slightly build there esteem with gifts
4. get them dependent on you
5. allow them to get attached and then attack their esteem and beat that shit down until only you can lift it up
6. now you got a slave that will do your bidding
 This is the simple shit (BASIC PIMP AND HO SHIT) that is being run on us by the system. It is a predatory mind-state, but here is where it is weak. This process can't happen without the perp getting just as attached as the victim. You know like the ancestors taught "you can't hold a man or woman down in the mud without getting dirty yourself". So the perp gets attached and their esteem and power is connected to the victim or victims buying into the cycle. Once the victim brakes the cycle and frees themselves from it, the perp suffers in the same way that he/she/it wanted the victim to suffer. Their power collapse and they begin to doubt and "Things Fall Apart"... They may resort to violence to get a sense of power back, but the feeling will be fleeting, and from that time on they will always harbor doubts about their true power.
The message is simply stop being a sacrificial ho, stop going to the alter of foolishness without raising your voice and speaking your mind. Even if you die your thoughts will resonate through time and space and touch others.
Now Back to why I encourage you to use this Internet and all the little gadgets that go with it. We are responsible to speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves, and the Internet gives us a platform to protest and rebel not just locally, but globally. What will you leave for those who come behind you. What ideas will you leave to guide them to their destiny. Don't allow your children to be led by fools who believe in "nothing ideas" that are based on what we call in Gye-Nyame the "Unbalanced 7" (fear, envy, pride, greed, sloth, lust and anger I will discuss these in an upcoming blog and podcast) these lead to destruction. Let your voice be heard and your sanity to shine through this madness acting as a light house in stormy seas. Stop giving your thought energy to others that just use it to build monuments of nothingness, for no other purpose than to fatten their bellies, live in big houses, and waste  the worlds resources.
Join me on the "Journey", and I am not talking about just reading my articles, and listening to my podcast. Hell do your own thing but seek truth and when you get nuggets share it in your own way. If you want to contribute to what I am doing by reading, listening,watching, and even purchasing I welcome you, but that is not the main reason I do what I do. If you reflect on the pic of Ms.614, ms. Gigi, and +Cleven Brown and also my older children Wisdom  ,+Ayzaia Williams+Yalonda Brooks , Kiesha, Yavaye, Gene, +Lotus Blossom , Jesse, Brian, Kareem, Mamu, Ricardo, Ron, Durrell ....... I can continue listing my children, but you get the idea. I am leaving legacy, and if I dont challenge the sheet streaming over the radio and children I would be betraying those listed and the ones not listed.
Nuff said
Now I return you to the regular scheduled bullshit....
Peace and 1hunidyears
(to all my children if you don't see your name it is a mistake of the mind and space, but not one of the heart. hopefully I have been a light in your life, and you will grow into agents of change, and truth)

p.s.s ( shots out to my grands)

Trials of Gye (foundation myth for Gye-Nyame Tribe) part 1


Trials of Gye



Long ago, before time was counted and broken down into small units designed to eat up our lives, there existed a proud people that dwelled in what we call the east. They existed in peace and harmony from the beginning. These people called themselves Black, naming themselves after the color of the earth from which they came. These people were many but divided into different tribes each one being led by their own chief. There was never a need for all of the people to come together because there was plenty of resources for them to exist in harmony. In one of the tribes, lived a young man by the name of Gye. Gye was the eldest son of a chief named Conive and was in line to rule his tribe. Gye had a younger brother name Sen who was very jealous of Gye's position. Sen happened to be chief Conive's favorite. Together they often schemed to make Gye look bad before the people and to throw him into disfavor.

Sen was in constant competition with Gye, and won most of the time. Gye was not much of a competitor and did not need outward victories to feel good. Sen felt he should be the next in line to rule his father's tribe and cried to his father constantly about the fact. Chief Conive was getting up in age and knew that very soon he would have to pass on his chieftancy. He loved Sen but he tolerated Gye. These two young men had different mothers. Whenever Gye asked about his mother, the only response that he would get was that "she left to get away from her responsibility." Sen's mother still was around and she wanted her son to become the next chief. So she constantly stayed in chief Conive's ear about her son moving into power. The major problem with Sen becoming the next chief was that tradition demanded that the first son must receive the mantle of chief upon his father's retirement.

The time was coming for chief Conive to move into co-rulership role with his heir so that he could train him in the ways of being chief. Sen's mother would not have her son looked over for Gye. So she let her son know that he needed to take action quick if he ever wanted to fulfil his destiny. Sen came up with an idea and sought council from his father. His father gave him the go ahead and the resources to get it done. He would hire 5 bandits to kill Gye on his morning walk.

As he usually did, Gye woke early in the morning to to commune with the Creator and his higher self. Gye was very dedicated to developing himself through his relationship with the Creator. In his prayer he asked to see a Phoenix and to be able to have the courage to capture a feather. For it was said that any man who could get close enough to Phoenix to pluck a feather would be forever transformed. Just having the feather of a Phoenix opens destiny's door to you and all of your visions would become reality.

Gye left his compound at his regular time, walking towards the forest, not knowing that lurking in the woods were the bandits that would take his life. As soon as Gye got out of sight of his village, they sprang upon him, beating him senseless. Right before the final blow one of the bandits raised his voice to stop all activities.

"We have beat him severely and he may not survive, but there is no use in killing him when we can sell him into slavery and make more money".

"Brother, we were paid by the chief and Sen to eliminate him!!!"

"Selling him into slavery is elimination. He will be taken far away from here never to be seen again, and we will be all the richer. We will just bring back his bloody clothes to prove he is dead and take a vow here and now that we will never discuss the truth of Gye to anyone including each other."

"Good idea. Let's do it," another bandit said.

So these five bandits made their oath over Gye's body not knowing that he was partly conscious. He had heard that his own family had betrayed him and that he would never see his village again. Three of the bandits stripped Gye and carried him toward the west to be sold. Then the other two bandits took the clothes to his brother Sen to collect their money.

When they finally made it to the market they sold Gye and left him with a slave driver who had to give Gye time to heal for the grueling march ahead. The slave driver needed to wait for more captives to come in anyway to make the trip profitable.

I will post the rest if it is requested......

Two Stories about the Truth

Here are two stories about Truth that struck me as powerful. The first is from a class that I took in my college days that stuck with me until today, and the second I recently ran into while going over some Zen tales. So check them out:

In the beginning the first man and woman were sitting wondering and discussing Truth. They approached the Creator and asked that they be given the Truth. The Creator denied their request, saying that they were not ready for the Truth. They continued to ask over and over again when ever they got a chance. Finally after a time the Creator respecting their persistence gave in to their request. Before the truth was given to them, they were warned that the Truth is a heavy burden and that they may live to regret their request. Man and woman were excited and prepared themselves for this gift. The Creator formed the Truth into a giant mirror and placed this new burden on the shoulders of Man and Woman. At first the Truth didn't seem to heavy or much of a burden, but eventually they began to falter and the Truth fell to the earth and shattered into pieces. As Man and Woman looked at the shattered pieces all over the earth they began to regret their request. At that time before their eyes other men and women began to rise up from the shattered pieces. The other men and women  looked at the shattered pieces they arose from and picked them up. Looking at their piece of mirror they held, and admiring the beauty of it they all exclaimed at the same time "look I have found the Truth", and ran off to populate the earth.  Men and Women have been fighting over those pieces of Truth ever since.


Zen story:

One day the "Evil One", was travelling through a town with one of his aids. They saw a man doing walking meditation whose face lit up in wonder. The man had just found something on the ground in front of him. The "Evil One's" aid asked his master "what is it that he found that has him enraptured", and the "Evil One" replied "a piece of Truth."
The aid then asked "Master, doesn't it bother you when someone finds a piece of truth?" the "Evil One" laughed and said "no, because usually right after they find a piece of Truth they make a belief out of it!"

Think on those stories and hit me up.........
