To follow thru with the energy of the discussion on the "How To Trick The Matrix" post - this "Project" is focused on really simple ideas we can all incorporate into our lives, daily or weekly activities. Can we shake up the world? Or is this idea melted into the fantasy of our personal scriptures? Do we have the power to change the system? I am optimistic that we can. IF we can rate what is- individually impossible as collectively probable.....perhaps. And if we can use our charts of history as evidence, the fact that we are still here- is impossible. I took a small period of time to meditate and speak to guides about these issues. I tried to find "simple" remedies that everyday people can do, with the least amount of effort and force- to help promote education and change. And more importantly- to help reconfirm the bond between our people. To make life easier, I assigned people I knew into 9 groups. I understand why now. Because we are all so skilled in so many things, its better when our skills are acknowledge first, and then we can make a personal decision where our skills can be applied. Groups: 1. Leaders. 2. Warriors/Peacemakers. 3. Creators. 4. Builders. 5. Teachers. 6. Lovers. 7.Healers. 8. Elders. 9. Masters. All 9 of these groups are present in some form or fashion here at Destee. Personally- I think what would shake up the world enough, is that those of you who have the authority to do so- do not be afraid to push this forum to a larger scale. If Destee is indeed a place for healing, it a place the entire world can access. Destee could also be in print distributed around the communities? It can become a true center for discussing the issues of Black America with true minds. Destee's audio classes can be pushed into a radio show format. The idea is- the power to shake up the world is within all of you. The issue of money has been used far too long as a reason to hold ourselves back. Leaders. Many of you fall into this group. As spiritual leaders, political leaders, etc. There is still a debate raging on about what is a Black leader? Who is a Black leader? And why do White people think we need one? Why does Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson speak for us? Most people have the wrong idea about leadership. People choose their leaders, leaders don't choose their people. Take for example how some of you have become "leaders" on this forum. This took place because you happened to be an expert or skillful at something right? You are asked a question, and you gave a successful educated answer. You can lead people to the right idea, because you have experienced the result. We can shake up the world by "recognizing" our Leaders before hand, in their youth. Instead of encouraging them to be basketball players and rappers.....today's slave jobs, let's learn to ask them questions, and see what "result" their minds are pondering. Afterall, most leaders are problem solvers. We must learn to give our youth their due. Imagine if we addressed a young child as "counselor" or "teacher" or " genius", what that would do to the conscious and sub-conscious of their being. They would instantly start to gravitate towards the energy that would built them into the person you are calling them. This is the way it is already! When we do this, we realize WE are the leaders, because we lead them to a successful result. A leader has the power to create leaders. We have 8 more groups to address, but this give you an idea of how we can begin this Project to promote conscious change. Is it possible for us to make a difference? FEAR- is the greater of all oppressors. Lover and Creator Bessie Smith still continues to shake up the world. Jack Johnson: Warrior/Peacemaker. Some of us fight, so millions don't have to die. Jack Johnson shook up the world by showing the power of the Black race still remains, despite brutality and racism. Peacemaker/Lover/Healer Is it possible to shake up the world and not be criticized? We would have to leave that to the pages of history.
