Daily Toast- Ujamaa 32171 (Stop wasting resources)

Great Ujamaa:
We will begin moving into a new phase of the #nguzosabachallenge, I will begin to focus more on some resources that I have been wasting when it comes to doing these videos. I have been jumping right over the proverbs and folktales that I podcast about weekly rather than using their wisdom to help with these daily post. I am guilty of wasting two powerful and overlooked resources in the universe. The first and most important resource that we all have access to is time. By me not helping you as well as my self focus on the words of our ancestors during our morning toast I have been wasting your time. I would do FFGF on Kujichagulia, and then Tribal Quotes on Ujima, and then jump into a discussion of the principles the following morning and rarely pull on the wisdom that came during the shows. This from my view is a terrible waste of time. Rather than helping you get a deeper understanding of the principle through the wisdom of the ancestors, I would randomly discuss issues, robbing you of an opportunity to go deeper with concepts that could help you more rapidly change your life. For this I apologize. From here on out I will be picking a single proverb or folktale to use during the week to demonstrate how the teachings of our Ancestors line up with the Principles as well as with life.
The second resource have I have been squandering into the discussion above, and it is the wisdom of our ancestors. transmitted to us through proverbs, quotes, and stories. I will not be guilty of this again. From this day forth I will be picking a single quote, proverb or story to focus our daily toast through. This week the proverb is "Say the knowledge holders, true home is the place which the sun breaks."
During the video I discuss 3 wasted resources that you can start pulling on to improve your life. the first one is of course time. Freedom, prosperity, joy, relationships, and health all require time. So if we are going to be serious about building we have to begin to become more economic with our resources.
The second resource that we are allowing to waste is our relationship with Mystery. Many of us are restless in life because we believe that everything needs answers, when the fact is that they don't. It is the mystery that gives our beautiful universe it's power. Now I'm not saying just be satisfied and lay around and be joyfully ignorant. Explore the mysteries for yourself embrace them and allow your being to dwell on these. It was once said that "when you peer into the abyss, the abyss peers into you". peer into to these mysteries and allow yourself to be caught in the magic of the moment. from these moments will come periods of peace and power that you can use in your life.
The last resource that we allow to go unused is the wisdom of our elders. Many of us have Elders in our life that have knowledge and wisdom that we can use to overcome obstacles. For Elders, our future is their past and they can give us short cuts or insights that are powerful.

Daily Toast- Umoja 227171



We have made it to another Umoja, and almost made it through another month. We are going strong with these toast, and by now you should be seeing the effects. Umoja is the point in our principle system where all of the principles we have been working on come together to produce results. Today take some time to notice where the principle Umoja has been working in your life. Where have things been coming together for you. Umoja is unity, but also on this day we deal with the Maatic principle of Truth, and the Hermetic Law of Mentalism.
Speaking of the Law Of Mentalism, let's explore this law throught the lense of Umoja. The principle of Umoja reminds that everything is connected and and interdependent. If we take this as Truth (Maat) we can take our principles to another level.  The Law of Metalism states that "Everything is mental, and everything is a mental creation of the All", now this means that the entire Creation is formed through mental energy. Mental energy proceeds from the mind, and can be manipulated with mind. Our Creator is described as the The All in all, in the hermetic writings, and this mean that this All is within you. This "All" is waiting to be activated by you, the only thing that is preventing this is your lack of unity within yourself, and your lack of consciousness. We can look back at the proverb that has been spurring me this week, "Awake out of thy suffering, O thou who liest prostrate! Awake thou! Thy head is in the horizon". I know that I have been on this for the last few days, but the truth (Maatic principle) rings so loud for me that I want, better yet I need you to get it. In our unconscious state, our walking sleep we miss out on the power that lie within us. We our lying prostrate suffering, but why are we suffering. We suffer because we do not realize that all of the pain, torment, horror, sadness, and grief are creations of our own making. We are caught within a mental illusion that is being cast over us, by ourselves. In our prostrate postion we can not see this, and others take advantage of our lack of site. They profit from our suffering, not because they have escaped the trap, but because their illusions have convinced them that they can releave some of their suffering by tormenting others, but it doesn't.
When we as individuals, and groups begin to rise from our prostrate positon, by unifying the five elements of our being (IMESP), and become conscious of where, when, and most importantly who we are, the shackles fall off and the suffering ceases. So on this powerful day once again let's focus on getting our mind right, and learn to master the other elements within us, so that we can turn this world from what it is to what we and our children need it to be.
