    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.

    Is it possible to shake up the world and not be criticized? We would have to leave that to the pages of history.

    Peace Destee Fam!

    Here's some more ideas for people willing to make changes in their communities. Some of us might think we are not significant enough to shake anything up. I beg to differ.

    In the movie "Pay It Forward" a little ivory boy did what Ebony people have always done as part of their custom and culture.

    Not only is there a Pay It Forward Foundation now, but the movie itself was what inspired Oprah to start her "Radom Acts of Kindness" campaign and The Angel Network. Most of these commitments lead up to her Billionaire status. Also, you might remember her famous "you get a car! you get a car!"

    We should know from studying-- all of these concepts come from KMT, Maat- and all African concepts of reciprocity.

    You get back what you give.

    So those of you who think you are not significant enough to change the world, obviously aren't paying attention. We all have the power to give something.

    Movies capitalize on concepts everyday people don't have time to promote or produce. The concept behind the Movie and Novel Pay it Forward has been used since time began. WE are the ones who have fallen out of consciousness as to why and how the Universe works. For this reason, our science and spirituality can be resold to us, as refurbished goods.

    Hundreds of Black people die in America everyday, with a house full of clutter, closets filled with things they never use, books they never read, clothes they never or hardly wore. Shoe boxes of memories, ideas they never shared. And they die heartbroken by a world that never seemed to care much for them.

    Why doesn't the world care for us? The world doesn't care when you have nothing to give the world.

    But we do. The problem is, we stock pile our gifts, ideas and materials because of the fear of letting go. Yet if you don't let go, how can you get?

    If we really wanted to change the world tomorrow, we start giving away all the things we don't use today. Just give it away. Don't worry about putting a price on it, just give it. Its funny that we'd rather store something we'll never use than give it away to someone who will use it.

    One of my favorite websites for free goods: www.craigslist.com. The site is free for ad listings etc, while not all selling is free. Craig manages to make over 2 million a year off this site. He has a listing for just about every city and country in the world. One of his most popular sections are: "Barter" and "Free" so this means if you have items you want to give away, you can list them right there in your city.

    Imagine how good you'll feel giving away the washing machine you don't use anymore to A single mother who needs it? Or all those books you've read, or you'll never read.

    Being chronically broke, is just as bad a condition as being chronically ill. We need to wake up. Being all spiritual and broke is not good either. MAAT is not about being broke, its about balance. How can we be rich and one area yet poor in the other. Something is not right there, and we need to take charge of this issue.

    When we are truly broke (not poor)- its because we are not GIVING. Everything in the Universe comes to us because someone or something is making it available.

    I give business ideas away everyday to Black business people who have the money to put these businesses into action. And because I do that, I get allot of business ideas. I call that MAAT, I call that Reciprocity. I call that balance and order. Its the way the world works. And the more conscious we are of the way the world REALLY works, the more we willing we are to take action.

    Give what you want Destee family! Clear out those closets! You know that mini skirt is not your style anymore! What you holding on to it for! Mothers I know you have items you may not need, think about all the Single mothers who do need them.

    We all have something to give, and that is what makes us all VERY significant people.

    Great post meta, I think we are all leaders...One thing that my family has always told me it that I "think for myself and dont follow others..and thats why alot of people dont like you" I was 24 at the time...around the time my brother was killed and brought to the elders and has became one himself....He explained to me in these words while i was in a meditative state in 2005...

    "The reason why people seem that they dont like you is because they wish they could be like you...they wish they could say no to something due to peer pressure, and be ok with not being popular.....but dont let it bring you down....they dont understand what kind of potential they have....envy can be worst than betray..it can lead anyone to "hate" on someone...that doesnt mean they hate you....everyone wants to think for themselves and when they dont anyone who does they will tend to not want to be associated with them..."

    And that stuck with me......And after I read alot of your posts meta I always thought about what my brother told me....Based on what people tell me and what has happened to me I consider myself more of a warrior...


    I believe black people fit in all 9 of them myself...they just need to believe it....keep up great posts meta!!

    Peace Torch!

    Envy can be worse than betrayal. Truer words have never been spoken.

    I give thanks everyday for Black folks who think outside the box, because they are the ones who help to break us out our prisons. And yes, most of us do belong to all these groups, and that would be the 9th group- the Masters. Those who master life and are not slaves to it, are the ones who think different, who move different and are here to show us things we would otherwise miss without their intervention.

    I accept the brave intervention of Warriors like your Brother. We are lucky and blessed when we have had an true intimate relationship with someone who crosses over to be with our Ancestors, from there they can guide us, visit us in our dreams and help our lives improve. I am thankful or your words Torch, but I don't salute just one Warrior, I salute two.

    Ase!

    While the 9 groups I have mentioned are indeed those of us who by whatever means are helping to change the world in our small little ways, I did fail to mention one very major group of Black folks. I failed to mention them, because it is taking me some time to define them. This group is changing the world, but for the negative. Unfortunately we can all slip into this group from time to time.

    There's a strong hot blooded vomit of ignorance felt especially by those who are so embedded in their own truth, they cannot- see any other reality. We have all felt this vomit rising up in our being, and its a sign that we are too attached to an idea, which is literally choking us.

    A true healthy mind, heart and soul care enough that they can show us the truth, but doesn't get wild about it. Why? Because seeing the truth is up to you. I still have bouts with Religious people over this same concept. To me, its a sign of mental illness when a person cannot for whatever reason have a decent conversation with another human being without trying to convince them of some trivial theory.

    Yet we must witness these acts closely and ask ourselves how many times are we performing these acts as well.

    There are so many leaders who speak wonderful thoughts. There are so many Pan Africans who have wonderful ideas. There are so many Elders and Visionaries who have it all mapped out for us. Why don't we just listen to them? Why didn't we listen back then? Why aren't we listening now?

    Its obvious that some of us listen. Some of us hear them. Some of us model our very lives after the words of Black leaders. Some of us have created a culture around speeches, books and words. So some of us do listen. But we don't collectively listen? Because we are not all on the same wave length.

    So for anyone who is a Leader, any true Leader- this is important to know. Usually our negative ideas center around control. This human need to control the path of other people. As if anyone of us would be so arrogant the think, the truth comes from us alone. Yes, there are many Spiritual Leaders who think that.

    There are Leaders who think the world is precisely what they see it to be, and don't you dare question it otherwise. I see the same need for control in Whites as I do Blacks. And sometimes I wonder if given the chance, would some Blacks enslave other Black people anyway? If given the same power, would we?

    True power is not about control. True power says what needs to be said, and walks away. True power doesn't care if you see the truth, because truth is obvious, it takes more power not to see the truth, and then to see it. The act of seeing it, is the responsibility of the receiver. Too many of us waste precious time trying to convince others of such trivial nonsense that we have forgotten why we are given gifts in the first place. No one sit and talks about a gift, they open it, and experience it, and use it.

    Black people are the most gifted people on the planet, yet we are the only ones who take time to derail the gifts of other Black people, the reduce the Genius of one another in our speech and thinking, and make sure everyone knows just how wrong a Black person is because their idea is different than ours.

    Woe to the day when difference dies.
    How can we celebrate difference in it's face, and yet stab it in its back?

    What is stunting our growth as a people? What is stopping us from organizing groups based upon wave length, and stop arguing with people who are not on our wave length? When will we wake up and realize there are many many many different channels and paths for all Black people, we can't all be on the same path. But all those paths are running in the same direction. We are trying to evolve- There is no such thing as ONE WAY.

    DO WE REALLY WANT TO CHANGE THE WORLD?

    If so, let's start by giving props to our People when then are with us, and not waiting for them to cross over and jump on the bandwagon. Don't wait for them to die to say how great they were. Let's learn to do so while they are living. Why is Black appreciation about our Ancestors alone, when we have LIVING Ancestors right here?

    LET'S MAKE A LIST OF LIVING BLACKS WHO DESERVE TO BE RECOGNIZED!
    PEOPLE WHO ARE SHAKING UP THE WORLD IN THEIR OWN WAY!

    WHO'S ON YOUR LIST?


    Here's my short list.....

    Mother Destee
    Assata Shakur
    Queen Afua
    Dr. Welsing
    Rev. Phil Valentine
    Dr. Delbert Blair
    Dr. Oyibo
    Keidi Obi Awadu
    Bro. Jamaal
    Jeremiah Camara
    Dr. Ray Hagin

    More WORLD SHAKERS---

    [​IMG]

    How many Rappers and people have been inspired by this Man? The list is endless. Before Spinners and Bling, Rappers like KRS-One where using the media to teach those like myself, who were listening.

    "You Must Learn" opened up my eyes to what Black Culture IS. So who can frame Leadership into one path, one thought, one way of teaching and raising the dead? There is no ONE WAY.

    If we could trace the transference of energy thru KRS-ONE alone, we'd find the same liberationists we look up to now, Pan-Africans, Hip-Hop teachers and Revolutionaries.

    Everyone has a purpose.

    [​IMG]

    I speak of true Warriors who find their own path and declare their own battles. Oh we'll speak very highly of them when they pass. Oh- Professor Griff was a strong Warrior. Professor Griff was on point. Professor Griff was the truth. Right.

    We can use these individuals as examples. How do we go about to create a structure in Black America where we all can benefit from the same wave length of one another? Nation Building is not an option. Nation Building is how people survive.

    So What is Griff trying to tell us? Is he speaking from his own selfish state of mind, or is he genuinely seeing/saying something that can better our people?

    [​IMG]

    Warriors come in all shapes and sizes. They lay for us instructions to open up and arrest our own Genius. If we did a transference of energy trace on Spike Lee himself, by himself he was risen a Culture. A Culture that uses film as a medium to express and broadcast the condition of Black people.

    Revolutionaries do not always come in the form we want them to come. But they do come.

    We are the ones who need to develop the eyes to see them. When Black Genius is left unappreciated, it can turn as hard as steel and become the very weapon that we will later fight against. Hip Hop is a prime example of that.

    [​IMG]

    When Black Genius is slapped down like a rebound by our Elders and Parents, what does it become? It becomes the very substance by which our Elders and Parents die from.

    Women give birth to bodies, and Men give birth to minds.

    Rakim gave birth to a generation of thinkers, who walk and think just as he did. He gave birth to poets and lyricists of all creeds and colors. So what is your definition of a God?

    So when we ask ourselves can we change the world...

    [​IMG]

    We should pay attention to what our words, by themselves inspire. We can sit today and tomorrow complaining about the world. We can cry out in our posts, we can complain for the rest of our lives about Black people who don't think as we do....OR

    [​IMG]

    We can learn to appreciate those who are indeed doing and trying, while they are still with us.

    We wonder, why is it when we call out "God- God- please help me" why doesn't God hear? God can only work thru people, and if we have a terrible attitude and lack of apprecation for those who help, how can we see when God is working?

    Our minds have become so consumed by the very language that was created to consume our minds. Liberation was never about you and you alone. Its not about me. But it is about U AND I=UNI. Its about the bridges we built between different spheres of thought.

    Liberation is not about the way we see the world and how many people will agree with what we see. That's not liberation at all, that's Human Ego at its best.

    [​IMG]

    They already know WHO WE ARE. There is enough evidence to suggest we are the Gods of the Earth they have to control. The messages are right there in our faces. We are "out of control Gods" to them. And the more most of us agree with this idea, the more the system will "control" us.

    Your humbleness is also a sign of your devotion Mother Destee. I appreciate your hard work. I know personally how hard it is for those who work on web site forums, or internet radio- it’s allloottt of work. I have the hardest time trying to explain to my clients that just because I work on a computer 24-7 doesn’t mean I’m not doing brain intensive work. If it was easy, everyone would be doing it. There should be some kind of website forum award for Destee. I know this is a collective effort, and all of you deserve the praise and honor for giving us the opportunity to shake up the world.
