Regardless of how many fingers we point… and how many directions we point them, African-Americans greatest enemy right now… is us.
The VA taught me that if I was going to live beyond my traumas and debilitating addictions, I would have to take responsibility for EVERYTING that happened me my (adult) life. And since alcoholism was killing me, 37 years ago, 12-Steps asked me, “What was my part in it?”
We don’t have time to play… not as a culture nor as a species. There are more catastrophies looming around us than we have time to fix.
It’s July, 2020, and last month, nine children in Chicago under the age of nine were shot to death in the last month. Sorry–but that’s not acceptable.
Chicago’s death toll from 2001–November, 26 2015 stands at 7,401. The combined total deaths during Operation Iraqi Freedom (2003-2015: 4,815) and Operation Enduring Freedom/Afghanistan (2001-2015: 3,506), total 8,321.
According to FBI data, 4,906 black people murdered other blacks in 2010 and 2011. That is 1,460 more black Americans killed by other blacks in two years than were lynched from 1882 to 1968, according to the Tuskegee Institute.
Time to get off the bullshit and take responsibility for what we’re going to each other. Forget racism, sociopathic cops, a barbarous super power that’s against us. We’re doing this–and it’s not going to stop until we STOP it. We’re not robots. This is intentional and willful murder and self-inflicted terrorism… of ourselves. It’s insanity. So how do we cure the insanity?
Mythology guides our lives. The way I’m using the word, myth is our belief system that we use to navigate our lives by. Myths describe our highest good to aspire to, and those aspects of life we believe we need to despise or be wary of.
We NEED a New Vision–
We need a New Mythology
The Oligarchs have filled the CIA with “Mormons” who never grew up with black people. Investigative journalist Thom Hartmann documents the names, dates, and policies of, “Too Much Democracy”…. literally laws designed to push down Blacks, Women, LGBTQ, Students… even unions… basically every group that was in the streets protesting in the 60s and 70s… well, those who didn’t make a new contract with the Oppressors. (“You Can be White Too$$$… well, until the Lord that giveth decides to taketh away…)
Insanity is doing the same thing over and over expecting different results. Next week I’ll be 67 years old. I grew up in a segregated in a Black community where everyone knew each other, and I think I was 16 before I heard of any of us killing one of us. Yes, “The Movement” was going on, and the music that people marched and danced to was not the music of today… was not aggressive words shaped to glorify Materialism or deify “fuggin’.” Sex, drugs, and Hip Hop may be fun… especially when teenagers.. but successful cultures are built upon cooperation and mutual support… and not killing one another nor the decadent hedonism that leads to the downfall of a culture.
- “My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge…” ~Hosea 4:6
- “Where there is no vision, the people perish ….” ~Proverbs 29:18
- “One of the reasons people perish without a vision is that they cannot endure the pain and cost required to achieve any worthwhile purpose.” ~Danny Silk
There are so many ways the word, “Myth” is used:
The term “myth” often refers to stories whose culture regards them as true (as opposed to fictitious). Thus, many scholars will call a body of stories “mythology”, leaving open the question of whether the stories are true or false. ~Wikipedia
Cultural “myths” are often erroneous things we believe are true, but are often, “Urban Legions” many times used to foster negative ideas about the target group. For example, “All black men are lazy,” or “Most black men are in prison“. Both are wrong, but it serves White Supremacy and ethnic competition who need false feelings of superiority and resentment to keep thinking this. There’s also a bit of “magic” to it because it convinces others to regard and treat black men as if it were true.
Religion is a belief concerning the supernatural, sacred, or divine, and the moral codes, practices, values, and institutions associated with such belief, although some scholars, such as Durkheim, would argue that the supernatural and the divine are not aspects of all religions. Religious beliefs and practices may include the following: a deity or higher being, eschatology, practices of worship, practices of ethics and politics. Some religions do not include all these feature. Here, people will fight to the death about their religion because they believe the Bible or Koran is literally true as opposed the understanding that the text instructs, “These things are allegory”… meaning because they deal with the supernatural, they are symbolic and provide the believer with deeper meanings than literal understands of the text.
Religion focuses on dogmas and rules followed by a particular sect or group of people whereas spirituality focuses on the “soul” or consciousness that dwells within you. It can be said that religion focuses on the outside; spirituality focuses on the within. There are many spiritual PHILOSOPHIES that many think are religions… like Buddhism and ancient Egyptian spirituality are a way of… how we live life; philosophy, not religions.
The American psychologist William James (1842–1910) defines spirituality as “the feelings, acts, and experiences of individual men in their solitude, so far as they apprehend themselves to stand in relation to whatever they may consider the divine.” ~DifferenceBetween.com
The Egyptian god Thoth … scribe and “Messenger of the gods,” taught all that words are create magic. The Gospel is the, “Good Spell”–but you need KNOWLEDGE and information to manifest the purpose YOU want… and not be fooled into taking acting out the Shadow of a jealous, envious group that means you no good? Learning that so much in the domain of humans is influenced by “spiritual magic” (…“words are weapons”...) and all that’s on this planet is energy, mater, and vibration…. so it’s of little question why the sentence, “In the beginning was the word,” is so important.
I’ve often wondered just how spiritually “pure” do you have to be, for your words to manifest? Obviously there’s so much more to our lives than words that how spoken words, art, and literature shape us. We have no idea what the psyche is… but it is deeply layered and when our archetypes … especially our Anima or Animus is out of balanced, huge dysfunctions and the undermining of our individual and collective unconscious occurs.
- This is why so many Black women raise sons they hate.
- Embracing wrong myths leads women not only to embrace the wrong, toxic, types of men (or women) … but her relationship to the world will be self-destructive.
- It’s why men inevitably choose the wrong women and make wrong choices.
- The effects of following poisonous and wrong myths lasts for generations.
This is the 6th month of Coronavirus sequestering. Isolating … or death, is having a large effect on the world already. But there’s a good side to everything. Now is a time to either get drunk and make mayhem with the friends/ family you’re in, or educate yourselves for whatever comes next. (Corporate-Feudalism? Slavery? Genocide? Police State?) Did you feel how reading those words influenced your emotions? Did you numb up or become anxious?
YOU HAVE POWER!
But you only have power if you wake up to it. You have to “wake up” to your own self. “He or she who fails to engineer your destiny, shall have it engineered for you.”
Black lives only matter if you PRODUCE something
valuable to your culture and to the larger world.
- Therefore, it’s advisable to become an artist who creates beauty and inspires growth.
- If you create a small business, will your own people destroy it? We can’t blame Whites masquerading a new thriving black community when they’ve financed Rappers to teach our own children and neighbors to do the job. We have to take that power back! (But we can’t if we’re in denial of our own bullshit.)
- “Progressive Rap”? From what I’ve heard, it’s still mired in teenage Victimhood. Every successful culture needs a mythology that teaches what to do with betrayal rather than sink in continual rounds of revenge. In life, even your MOTHER is going to betray you… what will you do with then? Shoot her? Your soul… your psyche is then destroyed, for you have killed yourself.
“It you think you came into the world to bite it– ’tis teeth you have in your head.” ~ William Shakespeare
The goal of a successful culture is to bring their children to sexual maturity–not to have them kill each other off while they are still in their youth. How do you expect White Corporate Culture to “treat you right” when it’s obvious YOU are the sacrifice laid on the alter for their next 50 years?
We TRIED to stop Gen Xers and Millinials from running around defining themselves as, “Niggers.” WE TRIED. Now they’re traveling around the world looking for a more peaceful, safer, cleaner, and more prosperous place to live. They get upset and post YouTube videos that point fingers at the Germans or Dutch who don’t show them respect. WHAT DO YOU EXPECT?? You told THE WORLD that you were dogs, criminals, and sexually depraved. (“… that’s only a part of the low vibrational energy that vile word, “Nigger” carries with it…)
- But as a mafia don once said, “Everything is negotiable.”
- And Henry J. Kaiser said, “Every problem is an opportunity in work clothes.”
- The Chinese symbol for crisis is the same used for “Opportunity.”
But how can you negotiate–or even think clearly when your body-mind is riddled with trauma and CPSD? How can you talk calmly if your Borderline Personality Disorder is easily triggered and you already know that your emotions go from 0 to 80 in two seconds? Thug Kulture is Borderline Personality Disorder Culture … and the goal to become a criminal inevitably turns your psyched towards Anti-Social, psychopathic, grandiose, and sociopathic??
It’s an inside job baby… you’re doing this to yourselves … opps… WE are doing this to ourselves. Dare to dream higher, love deeper, and include more people in your lives regardless of their skin color, or sexual orientation… but ONLY if they aren’t predatory.
“She was a married woman, a respectable woman… (they always make the best targets)… because it’s only the respectable who have anything left to corrupt. “The nicer you are, the darker the demon that will come for you.” This is true also for the “Unblessed” … the envious twin always seeking to rob or destroy what the blessed twin has. ( i.e. Cain and Able, Remus and Romulus, Gretel and Hansel, etc…)
