Are we all equal?

It depends on who you ask.

What is the black man’s original religion?

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.

Ankh

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.

Orisha

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.

Err or not

Shut up, shut up!

When I got on at Atlantic Pacific station R train, I kept hearing these words being repeated but wasn’t sure where and who.

Taking off my Beats and looking around the car discreetly I caught a glimpse of a small man holding his hands over his ears and rocking back and forth.

I wasn’t sure if he was talking to himself or someone in particular. Just as I was about to put my Beats back on and resume listening to my daily Africa Today – BBC World Service when he started up right in front my very eyes.

It looked suspiciously like the young lady next to him, maybe no more than 14-15 years old was deliberately taunting him. She must have realized he had a sensitivity to the sound coming from her headphones and decided it was funny to turn her sound up intermittently to see his responses. People in the car were giggling and looking on every time he jumped, covered his ears, and screamed ”shut up”.

This little charade continued for 5 minutes until u got off at 45th Street Station.

I felt sympathy for this man because I wasn’t sure what is specific issues were. Why people felt it was funny I don’t know but I hope he got to his destination intact.

Sometimes all it takes is putting yourself in another persons shoe. Would you like someone treating you like that? To err is human yes but to be cruel is inhumane.

Perspective – Is it all how you look at me?

Possibilities

Maybe can be certainly

Cannot can be can

Weak can be strong

Incapable can be capable

Disadvantage can be advantage

Black is black and beautiful and certain, which means I can be black and strong and capable with an advantage just because I’m black every day means I am positive and filled with possibilities.

Race card

It’s all how I look at me, not how you look at me. My perspective is everything because my possibilities are endless.

Silence is restorative

I’ve found this to be a very powerful truth.

I can talk and talk and find no healing, nor resolution, but as soon as I shut my mouth, open my mind and keep my heart reasonable ( mind you, I didn’t say … pure because honestly who has a pure heart? Let’s be real).

Good against evil

We try to be as pure as we can by balancing good against evil, and that’s the best place to be in the balance where you are trying. I am scared to death of the extremes. They both create chaos in this world.

I am writing to release the tension I’ve accumulated over the last several day. Tough and heightened tensions I don’t usually experience, especially Seems like I’ve not been able to find simple solutions to any one problem I’m currently addressing. Saving grace is my positive perseverance and attitude.

So I find the positive my immersing myself into complete silence sometimes for hours. No radio, music, other voices, magazines, books, and my computer or phone.

I seek answers in silence along with peace for my own wellbeing. Without my peace I am not myself so I seek restorative silence.
