    Peace and Blessings Family,

    I just realized today ... Saturday the Fourteenth ... that yesterday was "Friday the Thirteenth."

    Did yall remember / realize this yesterday, on the day? I didn't think of it at all.

    I've never thought of it as a "bad luck day" ... matter of fact ... i tend to think good things of the stuff most think bad of.

    How about yall ... was yesterday any less blessed, than all your other days?

    Love You!

    :heart:

    We are so blessed Family!

    Look what i just found ... in our own house ... dated 03/06/2001 ... given to us by our own Dear Darling Brother Aqil:


    THE TRUE MEANING OF THE NUMBER 13


    It is known to many persons who are not students of the occult that the Tarot is a method of divination by means of 78 symbolic picture cards, to which great antiquity and high importance are attributed by several expositors. And the literary history of the Tarot is also fairly well known. In ancient times the number 13 became a number of fear and superstition because the 13th card of the Tarot is the card of Death, and is pictured as a skeleton (the symbol of death) with a scythe reaping down men in a field of newly grown grass where young faces and heads appear cropping up on all sides. This image later became known as “The Grim Reaper,” and it was ascribed to the planet Saturn. In medieval England the standard fee of the hangman was 13 pence - a shilling and a penny...

    But 13 is not an unfortunate number, as is generally supposed. It has become so firmly associated in the popular mind with the notion of “bad luck” that it is easy to forget the fact that in the ancient mystic religions 13 was the characteristic number of participants in many orders and occult groups, including sacred meals – a fact reflected in the size of the original Nazarene Last Supper. And it can be clearly shown that 13 is not only the most cherished number of the United States, but also the most fortunate number for Africans, African-Americans, and people the world over of African descent.

    Thank You Brother Aqil. I do, and will always, love you.

    The # 13

    is actually a good number.

    The superstitious behavior of some gives this number a very bad rap.
