    Prior to the 3 major invasions (eg.by Europeans and other foreign operatives) in Africa our knowledge of self would eventually be destroyed through abuse, agony, crushing humiliation, enslavemnt, filty eating habits, pillaging, rape and slaughter -- the behaviors listed below did not exist in our former paradise:

    Black on Black Killing - Disrespectful Thugs - Divorce - Drug Abuse - Elder Disrespect - Gambling - Gangsta Rap - Guns - Homelessness - Jails - Joblessness - Jim Crow - Juvenile Detention Centers - Kidnapping - Lewd and Lascivious Behavior - Lynchings - Orphanages - Prisons and Prison Guards - Profanity - Police Brutality - Poverty - Self Hatred - Self Mis-Education - Sellouts: Sambos rather than Uncle Toms (eg. know the difference) - Racial Profiling - Racism

    Q. Will we ever outgrow these European-created constructs?

    This sister is TEACHING! I'm just grateful that she exists, and that she KNOWS and shares these insights.


    As I watched this, the thought came to me about the power of LABELS in the *objectification process*.


    One Love, and PEACE

    We will shed the outgrowth of western constructs, simply because they are false constructs. When and how is crucial. For a great many don't know we live in a Fallacy. That our reality is/has been altered by false prophets.

    Yes. Slowly but surely WE are beginning to shed the fetters of Euro-centric thinking. It is a process though and make take a while. Yet I know our strength lies in recapturing our Ancient Afrikan-centered thinking. This is not a difficult task to accomplish, since we never left Afrika "spiritually" -- just physically!

    The world is entering an age of enlightment (eg. Aquarius) as the age of christianity is going away (eg. Pisces).

    Every soul is the architect of its own life, here or hereafter.

    When a soul is freed from karmas, it becomes free and attains divine consciousness, experiencing infinite knowledge, perception, power, and bliss.

    Right View, Right Knowledge and Right Conduct. The universe is self-regulated, and every soul has the potential to achieve divine consciousness through its own efforts.

    I agree! But we have a ways to go before the AGE OF AQUARIUS is upon us. We are still very much in the age of PISCES. When one studies the NATURAL time line one will see that we have a "ways to go" both intellectually, spiritually, globally and most often personally.

    Be well!
