Are You Feeding Your Heart Or Your Stomach

Image
  Are You feeding Your Heart Or Your Stomach The folktale we will look at here is important because it focuses on one of the unbalanced passions (this is what we call them in Gye-Nyame training) that has destroyed more lives and broken more homes than any other vice. We are talking about greed. Striving to get more than you deserve and in many cases more than you could use. Greed is a deadly vice that will keep you hungry in the midst of a cornucopia. I have personally felt the sting and seen its actions in my life. Greed will constantly whisper “more” to you and if you have not been taught to recognize it,  it will lead you to ruin. We can see greeds effect all around us, and we can hear it in the speeches of politicians, and business persons. The constant move toward growth, and expansion is nothing but one of the disguises for greed. In Gye-Nyame we describe this as an unbalanced passion. Because at times there are moments for greed, but we must be fortified in our other principles

Know Your Enemies

  Know Your Enemies In war it is very important to have scouts. These are soldiers or warriors that go ahead of the normal troops, to get an idea of what the enemy has waiting for their army. The scouts job is to gather information about the enemy and bring it back to their leaders so that they could more effectively deal with future battles. Do you have scouts in the world. I promise after this folktale you will be trying to get some. We are looking at the folktale (fable) called “The Bowman & the Lion” and the lesson that I learned pretty much sticks with the moral of this story “be on guard against men that can strike from a distance”. This is very important in all aspects of our lives. Many of us are being hit by the arrows of enemies that we didn’t even know we had. These arrows have been set on autopilot, and are triggered by us trying to get in spaces that were not designed for us. We can see these arrows flying in business, certain fields of work, in real estate, in laws, e

The Unnoticed Wealth Within (lessons from an ass)

  The Unnoticed wealth Within (Lessons from an Ass) The ass is a beast of burden that Aesop frequently uses to teach lessons. This one strikes me as important, and I believe my  take on this story may have not been the original lesson, but I am sure that it will help many of those that take the time to read. In my tribe one of the first things that we strive to do is to get people to start learning not only their peoples history, but we push them to learn about their family history. Our goal in doing this is to help them develop a pride for what their personal family's history adds to the total mosaic of African and world history. Many of us, I believe, feel that our family has not added to the timeline of world events. We believe that our personal family's history should be shunned and put to the side because it is not important. That is the farthest we can get from the truth. Our family’s history is what made us, and if we would take the time to look at some of the great thin

To Thine OwnSelf Be True

  To Thine OwnSelf Be True I actually did not pick this fable as my first choice, but it just happened to be the first one that I relistened to when I was putting my playlist together. It popped up and I gave the discussion a listen and it blew my wig back. Please understand when I do my shows I rarely go back and listen to them. Most of the time I press the button and go, and after the show I move to the next one. You see, I was taught content was king, and for almost 8 years I would create a show a day. In fact on some days I would do as many as 3 shows a day. In 2022 I decided to change how I did content because doing all this creating and not making headway in social media began to wear on me. Don’t get me wrong I had built up a group of supporters who understood what I was doing, and supported me every step of the way, but I was nowhere near where I had hoped to be. When I started this journey I had planned for this to be my retirement gig, and that through GNJMedia I would be abl

The Right Of Descension Introduction The right of descension is something that we don't talk about much these days. It is a principle from our past when we were tribes who had no clear boundaries or territories. If a group wanted to leave their tribe, they would have to get permission from the tribal council, and then there was another requirement: at least 30 members of the tribe willing to go with them. This ensured that there was strength in numbers with this new tribe as they set up camp somewhere else in their vicinity, away from the main group. In times gone by, this was necessary because it ensured survival of all members of the tribe by allowing them to split off into smaller groups if needed! But now things have changed drastically due to environmental factors and political upheavals elsewhere in our world—our planet has become less hospitable than ever before for most forms of life on it including humans! We must adapt quickly or perish together as one species; splitting

Mimetic Virus

  The Mimetic Virus Great Ujima: I thought that reviewing this video as well as creating this article fit the theme of the day. Memes are a double edged sword that can be used to help us in our proces, but just like any other tool if it is used incorrectly it can cause a lot of damage. In the article I do not focus on ways that we can use memes to build, I focused on how the virus can do damage because we have many ideas that we have to cure ourselves of before we can move forward. Checkout the article and let us know what you think. Also be sure to sign up for our email list or take our seven day free ecourse. We need to get some healthy memes out here that will work for us rather than hold us hostage and impoverished. GNJ Free ecourse and email list Introduction There's a theory about human psychology that says we're all under the influence of invisible ideas—and some of these ideas can be dangerous. The idea of mimetic viruses (or memes) comes from French anthropologist Marc
