    Peace and Blessings Family,

    There was a thread started in one of the Study Group Forums surrounding the use of the word ... Peace.

    It was suggested that some are not using it properly, or don't have the right training to use the word ... or something ... not really sure ... but because the thread was started in the Study Group Forum ... and all can't respond there without possible consequence ... i started a like thread here ... so everyone can share their respectful opinions without risk.

    I know i use the word peace often, and would love to know if i should have rec'd more training prior, or am lacking in some great way.

    What do you think ... can anyone use the word peace ... and is there a proper way to do?

    Looking forward to the discussion.

    Love Yall!

    :heart:

    Destee

    ps ... this is an example of how a discussion that might have been started in any one of the Study Group Forums, can still be had by all ... by simply starting a like thread in the Main Spirituality Forum.

    ... where there is a will, there is a way ... :wink:

    This word "PEACE" is a relative term for many and many have defined it according to their own understanding. Some use it as a greeting upon meeting or leaving. Others use it to define their own state of being mentally or spiritually. I have used it as both. For example: I could walk up to a group of young brothers on the street that I don't know..and immediately I will say it, which basically lets them know, "don't be alarmed, I'm not the po po or someone coming to do you harm". Among conscious people I'll use the same word with the Kemetic language of "HETEP". In general, it simply is "the absence of confusion" within oneself. If this exist within yourself, it manifest outside of yourself in your speech and your actions. If you are not coming to me in PEACE, then you are coming to me in confusion or in the Kemetic language "ISFET". So once again, it is a word that varies according to the consciousness of the person.

    P.S. Glad you brought it out to the regular forum.

    Peace LOL,

    No there is no patent on the word "PEACE." Use it however you will. All I would ever ask of anyone with any word is to use it correctly as it is used in the English language.

    Peace....... again. :wink:

    Anyone can use the word, but it has no meaning if not applied in the correct context.

    It is what it is. Harmony. Balance. Truth. Righteousness...etc.

    There is no one person or group which owns possession of the Word. It is a Universal concept.

    From what I was taught, yes, anyone can use it. I don't believe any group owns it, however much they may use it.

    NGE uses "Peace" to say Hi and bye. Precise uses Peace more than I do. He is a sweeter person than I am. I only use the words "Peace" when I know people and can with a level of certainty know that when they say "Peace" to me they mean it or they are using it the same way I do. Other wise it's......

    What I cannot stand is when folk Use "Proper Education Always Corrects Error" or another mnemonic for Peace. When folks say this and get examined to determine the whats and hows they often come up lacking.

    Peace Earth,

    We've built on this before. You already bare witness how people want to copy our swagger. You see it all the time in the music industry. People are bound to observe our self styled wisdom and try to copy us. It's a fact of life and I don't see it changing anytime soon. You are entitled to your feelings on this topic however I also want you to consider how the 85% do. If there's a chance they're going to mess things up, they probably will. Don't discard people wanting to take the best part. For some of them using our lingo is their best part. If that's all they can or want to wrap their brain around, cool. They pay homage to Gods and Earths whether they know it or not. You have the tools and the skill to examine anyone trying to front like they're down with the nation. Don't be afraid to use them. Just remember that our language and our curriculum is a precision instrument not a sledge hammer or a spiked baseball bat. Chose your battles wisely.

    Peace
