Music & Culture - Daily Toast Kuumba 527171

Peace FAM:
We once again talk about culture, at the beginning I was joined by my girls, but they soon abandoned ship for a movie. This left me the space to have some adult conversation with y'all. We are neglecting the power of culture and the tools of culture, and we will not be able to march very much further in this highly competitive, and race based world if we don't start learning the lessons, and building for our future. Music is such a powerful tool that we have allowed to be hijacked.
I recently was at a talent show, and the young people sang, and danced, but all of the songs that my (our) children chose were from white artist. All the songs were about pushing beyond limits and inspirational. I had to laugh because I could not think of any age appropriate songs by a Black artist that my kids could sing that fit that model. We have allowed our culture to be pimped, and turned into a weapon against us. I for one will not stand for it. We have radio stations in our communities that swear they represent us, but in reality they represent record companies, and investors who all benefit from the failure of Black people. If we do not start moving to take control of "This Thing Of Ours" it will be used against us, and before we know it we will be totally removed from the game of life. We have no other choice but to begin building culture, and make the way smooth for the generation that follow us. If we fail at this our people in America I believe are doomed. We have already been pushed into a permanent under class, from our rampant consumerism, and lack of political,or economic understanding. Our children are handed over to institutes of mediocrity, and taught skills that are no longer relevant in these days and times. This is why I fight and post daily, and rant on my channel. i know that there is a small group out there that feels the same way I do and may not be able to speak the truth, but we have to do better.
take some time checkout the video and let me know what you think. Your input is very important to me, it let's me know how I can become better, and it gets dialogue going.
Peace, Power, Joy, and 1hunidyears
*remember to sign up for the 21 Day Nguzo Saba Challenge or if you just want to support GNJ you can give at "That Ambrosia" and know that when you give to us we give back to you.

Daily Toast- Imani 521171

Peace Fam:
Today me and the girls just had fun, but we were able to discuss the concept of faith in the process that you are practicing. Faith, and trust are important in the process of Selfmastery. Two of the Ten virtues of Maat stress these concepts:
"Having faith in our masters ability to teach us (or reveal) the truth."
"Having faith in our ability to assimilate the truth"
Being able to invest our trust in the process that we are following is paramount, and we have to begin to practice this principle, so that we can move to the next level of our development. Take some time and evaluate some of the processes that you working in your life, and the ones that are worthy to continue, because you have seen the fruit in your life, as well as in other live's, and begin to invest trust in them. View video and feel free to leave comments. me and my daughters wish you Peace, Power, Joy, and 1hunidyears.

Daily Toast- Kujichagulia 516171 "This World Is Ours"


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 only thing that keeps us from claiming what is ours is organized action and commitment. White supremacy is a myth supported by guns, just as many of the religions that we submit ourselves to are just myths that use the after life as a weapon to push us in a direction that does not benefit us, and then if we do not budge then out come the guns.
Family the simple point that I am making is that this world is ours, and we will never get it back following the rules of an alien culture. We need to embrace who we are totally and leave those who wish to stay behind. It is time to rebuild our culture, this time add all of the equations of success that we need, make vulture proof, and make it vulture proof. Be sure to take the challenge and take the first step to building a vehicle that can catapult us into the future. Checkout the video and let me know what you think.

Daily Toast- 58171 "Benefits Of Steaming"

Peace FAM:
Great Umoja, let's take some time and talk about the power of steaming and how you can use it in your life to get healthier, and to make cooking easier. i personally cook everything in it. As a matter of fact I made my kids some eggs in it this morning. Of course they were hard boiled, but I have made omellets as well as poached. I cook my rice, quinoa, and etc.. I also take care of my fish in this contraption. My favorite thing to prepare though is beans, man I can prepare some beans in less than 2 hours and if they are soaked even sooner. By adding some extra water and vegitables I can make it a soup.
The best part about the steamer is that I can warm up my veggies, and not kill or wash away the health benefits. So those of you taking that 21 Day Nguzo Saba Challenge go to a thrift store or find one of your friends who love buying gadgets and only use them for a few times, and get it from their. I just want to stress that you do not have to go out and buy and brand new steamer. Go on a quest and find one, and you may find something else you need.
Lastly I just poseted up part 2 of the axe' breath for all those doing the challenge so you should be getting it in your email, and if you don't get it let me know @ ha2tim

Daily Toast- Umoja 424171 "Drama"

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 eventually people walk away exhausted and frustrated. If we want to grow, we have to learn to re-frame situations and subtract the over dramatic depictions. Checkout the video and let me know what your thoughts are.
Remember to take the 21 Day Nguzo Saba Challenge, and if you want to release the Warrior within be on the lookout for the 21 week warrior training, make sure you register with Gye-Nyame Journey to stay updated and to get exclusive content, and discounts on GNJ merchandise.

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.
Nuff said
Peace & 1hunidyears

Daily Toast- Imani 42171

Peace FAM
Here is another edition of the Daily Toast, This episode I am joined by my lively Daughters Shasha & GiGi. I Try to go a little deeper with the Nguzo Saba Challenge and the order of events for those that will participate. I am going to develop a checklist of things to do and you can decide for yourself how far down the rabbit whole you want to go. The deeper you go the more powerful the effect will be for you. In short each day will begin with you waking and focusing on the principle of the day, making sure that you state it aloud, and focus on what type of day it will be for you. Remember we are seeking to take control of the energy of the day and guide the symbols associated with that day in our favor. Then we will move tour our daily toast, this is an internal libations that we pour to align our body with our purpose. We start this part by drinking some water. The drinking of water is the most important part of this ritual. Water is the key to health and if we are not taking hydrating ourselves serious all the other parts of the challenge will fall apart. You should drink water before you take anything else into your body. Water is filled with axe' (life force), and it helps awaken your body, by removing toxins from the previous day. I suggest drinking at least 16 ounces, but do what you can. I personally prefer distilled water, and the first drink should be just pure water. After this step is complete we move into our toast (libations), for this portion you can use water, or a health drink. I personally use "That Ambrosia" a kombucha I make. If you don't have access to "That Ambrosia" you can use Lemon and water, lime and water, apple cider, and water, or an herbal tea. It is best that all this drinks be unsweetened, especially if you are on the warrior diet.
In the Toast we salute our Creator, our personal ancestors, the present moment, and our future generations. This part of our ritual once again gets us to focus on the important things in our lives. After the toast move into a routine that helps get focused on the coming day. I clean up the kitchen, but you can build your own. The routine can be composed of anything that will help you focus your energy for the day. After the routine is complete we move into our meditation and workout. I personally move into the axe' breath, and a exercise regiment. After this i move into my cold shower which definitely will help you get focused, helps get the blood flowing, helps your body eliminate toxins, and jump starts your internal system by encouraging it to begin burning fat.
Yesterday we spoke about utilizing the Warrior Diet during this process so I won't go into a conversation about that.
FAM this is the basic run down of the process, nothing is in stone. I expect you to use your Kuumba to structure it to fit you. Checkout the video enjoy my kids and have a great day.
