I am tired, no exhausted since I tossed and turn and did not receive my usual rest.
So it’s not that I am really at loss for words to say…but rather the words are lost in my tired brain. Running around up there fast and loose without any regards for my need to get them back together coherently.
I’ll be back God willing, refresh, and ready to rock and roll with SOMETHING to not just say, but hopefully something to contribute.
Religions says we are not equal merely by separating themselves as religions.
This in itself causes a chasm where separation of faith creates a type of inequality in the minds of the followers.
I’ve heard it time and time again- you are Christian Pentecostal and I am Christain Catholic, Baptist, Jehovah Witness, etc, etc. Fundamentally all believers but unequal in their doctrines and most importantly color if skin. Sad state of affairs yeah?. Since they are unequal this gives them the okay to be abusive to each other. Turn on your TVs, look at social media and you’ll see what I mean. Take a trip back in history and look at Religion if you are not satisfied with worldwide religious atrocities. . How are we treated merely by the color of our skin?
Groups of Christians enslaved Africans, in the name of capitalism. They even forced the enslaved to stop /cease and desist through fear and outright terrorist acts, their own religion and adapt theirs. What nonsense is that?
So your own brothers and sisters are now the same religion as you but enslaved and not equal? Am I the only one who thinks this is whack? Yet we continue to run behind these same people, thinking the way they do instead of going back to basics.
Truth be known, basics is universal. Anyone can join, anyone can be a member, there are no doctrines, no enslavement. It’s call the human race. Black people you belong to this race but you’ve got to stop the enslave us in their tracks by first knowing removing your mental block. Study your history. Know yourself. Do not be afraid to believe in your greatness and in our collective equality.
Unequivocally yes we are all equal. Plain and true.
Help them so they can help us so we can help each other. It’s basic economics. It’s cyclical. You get out what you put in.
Support your local black businesses. The online black businesses and create your own wealth.
History has taught us no one values us regardless of education, contributions or position. So, start valuing yourself/selves.
Suffering as we have as a people will only change when we realize our own worth. The mass incarcerations, historical enslavement and present mistreatments will only stop when you rise above it all economically. And unitedly.
Busy day yesterday but determined to focus in on my seven principles and reestablish some foundational principles we’ve been led away from as a people.
Culture, traditions are all part of identity. Who are we? Where did we come from? So important. So as we meditate on these 7 principles here’s wishing you a Happy, healthy, long and prosperous life for you and yours.
