“Where there is no vision, the people perish…”
~ Proverbs 29:18
True. (But then the Social Engineers added… “but he that keepeth the law, happy is he.” Who’s “Law”?? I’ve long agreed that whoever you are… your “God” should look like YOU.)
Post-Jungian James Hillman pointed out that when you believe in a religion comprised of rules and laws, when trouble arises, you’re left with shame, blame, and guilt. The Elders (Ancestors) have been pushed out and there is no wisdom.
Joseph Campbell said religion is myth made physical. When taught LITERALLY… it becomes chains that imprison beings so potentially powerful that each of us could BE a “Christ.”
“Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do…”
~ John 14:12
The brainwashing of African-Americans…
(of ALL Americans in reality) … has been so thorough, that almost everything we believe in, is more likely to lead us AWAY from our innate Spiritual Power, psychological well-being, and our ability to come together and build productive, supportive, prosperous lives with one another.
The “Christian Fundamentalism” that is taught in the vast majority of Black Churches is post-Civil War theology. That means it is SLAVE theology… that preaches of an ANGRY WHITE God who is perfect and against nature. So… psychologically–and spiritually–blacks don’t stand a chance of using it to truly empower themselves beyond the confines and dictates of White supremacist consciousness. On top of that, we are taught it young… and with fear. Our parents are taught to beat us, and there is a treat of “Eternal Damnation” by this white God who easily will cast us into the fires of Hell so that devils armed with pitch forks can roast us over hot coals… forever.
Really? Even racist ass Pope Francis has recently backtracked on “Hell” being a physical place, and not a metaphoric emotional state of being that is distant from the love of that white God. ((LoL)) Does this sound right to you??
Remember, THERE WERE NO JEWS, Romans, nor Greeks as an organized group of people until the 13th ancient Egyptian Dynasty. What this religion did was not only give Latins and Europeans the “right” to rape, murder, torture, defile, castrate, and enslave Africans, but to do the same with nature and everything that is on and in the earth.
Materialism is a “god” that is now worshiped above all others.
“Prosperity Theology” therefore is commensurate with Satanism.
Add the chest beating Egotism of Korporate Hip Hop and Rap, we are left with values, goals, and ideals that act like Miracle Grow on Borderline Personality and other psychological disorders … adding to the toxic soup that makes it almost impossible to cooperate with one another sufficiently to create BEAUTY and strength instead of self-destructive “Victim-hood”, and ugly modern day enslavement…. through drugs, addictive lifestyle choices, and prisons.
We need to “See Clearly” before we can truly embrace an AFRICAN way of seeing the world that is far higher and healthier for us and the planet than Narcissistic empty Materialism. Buddhism allows us to settle down to the point where we escape the Matrix of conditioning. From that point of healing, we begin to understand what true spiritual power truly is. Tibetan Buddhism is more gentle than Zen and deeper, wider in scope than Vipassana. Below are a few quotes by Chögyam Trungpa.
“The basic work of health professionals in general, and of psychotherapists in particular, is to become full human beings and to inspire full human-beingness in other people who feel starved about their lives.”
