How do you transform a poisoned society?

Toxic Algae Lake Eerie

How do you transform a poisoned society?

Poisoned spiritually, mentally, emotionally, and physically?

 How do you raise children, I mean really raise children to navigate a society that is designed to keep people ill, systematically kill them, and the illusion of wealth is the only goal?

 Celebrity and Fame are God.  We follow their every move, fascinated, fixated, loving the illusion.

 What kind of educational system do we need to create to prepare our children for a world where lies are the truth?  A society where fresh real food is a luxury.  Water is a luxury.  Housing is a luxury.

 A society where the job you aspire to get contributes to maintaining a poisoned society. 
Profit over People!

 How do you raise and educate children for society that we ourselves really have no idea how to navigate in a healthy manner?

 I keep hearing Honorable Marcus Moriah Garvey’s words of warning that have come to pass..
  If the Negro is not careful, he will drink in all the poison of modern civilization and die from the effects of it.”

Thank You Mommy

This Mother’s Day I give thanks to My Mother for her Love and Support on my Journey into Motherhood.

My Mother is a Rebel. Prime Proper Rebel.

My journey into motherhood did not follow the respected path of marriage then motherhood. 

Yet my mother pushed past that and still saw the sacredness and divinity in the continuity of the family.

Under her roof she gave me the freedom to heed the call of our Ancestors to a truth that had been beaten out of us.  Shamed out of us.

My becoming a mother 26 years ago sent me on a journey past the lies of the slave masters passed down generation after generation.  A journey to my Ancestors my African foundation.

A journey I began as a child even though I didn’t know at the time.

This Mother’s Day I Celebrate my Mommy for giving me the Freedom to explore and find the path of our Ancestors while living under her roof. 

She supported my decision to raise my child with only books of African, African-American, Native American, and Caribbean stories. 

When I tried conventional religion, and it didn’t work she supported my decision to continue my search.

Our Ancestors led to me to my Godmother, Bernice Ballew who I also show Honor and Respect this Mother’s Day.  Her patience and determination opened me to what I was searching for my whole life. My Ancestors, the Orishas an ancient Spiritual Truth we were separated from during slavery.  My Mommy gave me the freedom to embrace this while living under her roof.

She embraced the Ancestor Altar that remains to this day in our Living Room. 

It is difficult living in a Western society that demonizes anything African.  That beat the African out of us.  That has brainwashed us to believe that the standard of excellence, beauty, intelligence, and God is European.

Under her roof, My Mommy allowed me to battle and challenge that lie.

I give thanks to Ancestors for my Mommy.  I give thanks to the Orishas Yemaya and Oshun for their blessings seen and unseen.  I give thanks for my Ancestral Grandmothers, Aunties, and Cousins who endured the brutality of the European conqueror yet kept that spark of Africa and passed it on to me.

The journey back is not easy because the brainwashing, programming and lies continue. 

Yet my Mommy Blessed me to walk that path under her roof.  For that I am eternally grateful and because of her our family is Blessed to reconnect in spite of the lies and propaganda of the conqueror.  

Because of my Mommy our family started the journey home to our African selves.

Today I hear Ancestor James Baldwin 

compelling me to write these words as Ogun dictates to me.  

There is the ideology that taking government sponsored financial assistance allows the government to dictate one’s life.

Now this is strange because the money the government allocates to their citizens is their tax dollars. The enormous government contracts for private corporations in all industries are our tax dollars.

It is what guides our Foreign Policy – he who pays dictates.

Once the culture of Greed controlled this planet, we are left begging for necessities, health care, healthy food, safe shelter, clean water, meaningful work and quality education to produce citizens focused on the human tasks of building a better world for ALL Living Beings.

We are distracted by cheap entertainment valued way beyond its true value.

We buy such meaningless shit, while people go hungry, no clean water, no home, sick, displaced by war, and the list goes on. 

Shopping just to shop. 

Buy more stuff and more stuff and more stuff and more and more and more…..

The mindset of the “more money the more valuable something is”, controls our everyday lens in how we see ourselves and our world.

Who decides the value of things?  Did you or were you told?

70% of NYC students failed the standardized test.
70% of our students failed.

That means we FAILED 70% of NYC studentsThis is a systematic, societal, political and communal failure.  

We have allowed those who hate children to control our educational system.

And we wonder why our children are so angry?

There are so many people who dedicate their lives to educating children against the odds with little to no support.

There are many more that pimp the NYC Educational Industry.  That is what 70% failure rate tells me.

We must take control of our children’s education NOW.
  • Home Schooling
  • Owning & Managing Top Quality Child Care Centers that Affirm our children’s spirits.
  • Owning and Managing Top Quality Schools – Educational Institutions that nourishes all minds with the highest level of educational excellence that is needed to navigate this century while using the guidance of those who came before.

If we don’t, no one else will.

The government and corporate America have proven their priorities are Profits over People.

We did it before, built our own, nothing new, we can do it again.

No Political Solutions to Spiritual Problems

"There are many things to be shared with the Four Colors
of humanity in our common destiny as one with our Mother the Earth.

It is this sharing that must be considered with great care by the
Elders and the medicine people who carry the Sacred Trusts,
so that no harm may come to people through
ignorance and misuse of these powerful forces."

Resolution of the Fifth Annual Meetings of the Traditional Elders Circle, 1980

Education is not limited to the classroom. God is not limited to the religious building.

We need wisdom we need elders to lead.  The adults lack wisdom; personal agendas dictate adult actions and decisions.  Adults have a limited understanding of time and generation.   Time focus is the present and immediate. 

Elder is not dictated by age, it is dictated by Wisdom knowing the Responsibility to those yet to be born.  

Leading doesn't mean elected office.

My deepest concern is the reality that there are no political solutions to spiritual problems.   

My current struggle with politics is the system.  No matter who we send into the system, the system controls them not us, not the people.  We are given a show to keep us pacified but our reality reveals another story.

Elected officials salaries are paid by the people, tax payer dollars.  However, private sector can contribute much more money and resources to elected officials than a tax payer’s salary.  We live in a system designed to maintain the true power structure that we do not see.  Their only concern is about stock holder profits. Only Focus is Profits, profits and more profits by any means necessary.

Language is so crucial we misuse words all the time.  There are consequences. We use the words great, love, genius, talented, excellence, intelligence, smart and leader carelessly. Lies are presented as truth.  Illusion sold as reality.

At this point, the only person in the race I see as a true fighter for the people is City Council Woman Tish James for Public Advocate.  A position that people should claim and fight to maintain. 

I am undecided for all other seats. 

How do we use the political structure to educate our children to be wise, healthy and conscious human beings?

How do we work with the political structure to maintain our communities with all this redevelopment of urban centers?

Is America adopting the European system?   The new structure, the wealth is in the cities and poverty in the suburbs, out of sight.

How do we
generate business and provide quality products and services within our communities to each other?

How do we rebuild our infrastructure and participate in the economics of that reconstruction?

What are the
responsibilities of individuals in our communities? What are the responsibilities of organizations?  What are the responsibilities of the elected officials?

How do we work the system to benefit our community?

Why? Who? Education and the Blame Game

Who benefits from only 26% of students in NYC passing the new State exam?  The mis-education of our children continues.

Are we really surprised that only 26% of the children passed the State exam? 

Why did you trust the Mayor to do what was right by all children regarding education?

Why do you continue to trust a system that continues to destroy children of African descent generation after generation?

"Why did we accept another people labeling our children learning disabled and maladjusted? What happened to our critical analysis? Why do we let another people place labels on us? The destruction of our children is taking place because we have accepted without exception or critical analysis the definition of other people of their behavior. A people who have falsified our history and our arrogant enough to think they can label the behavior.... and then create programs to address what they labeled...." Dr. Amos Wilson.

Why do we keep allowing people whose salaries we pay, play with our children's minds? Why?  We have been doing this for generations.  Why?

Why are we playing the blame game?  Why do we allow our leadership to play the blame game?

26%!  So 74% will be food for the prison industrial complex.  Is that the game plan?

Public Education is ending; they are developing all the data to prove it doesn't work.  Know the game people. 

We better be ready to build, maintain, sustain and grow our own schools.

Time to see the handwriting on the wall!!

We continue to be powerless to provide our children a quality education to compete in this century.

Success is in the Details

Candle by Blu Spirit

Step by step, stone by stone and brick by brick.  (Whitney Houston lyrics)

Our media, fast paced culture tends to confuse this reality with their non-stop hype.  The detailed work to produce an extraordinary show is what we need to focus on, not just the show.

The victory is in the details, in the step by step.  Media has us focusing on the “grandness” and being seduced by this illusion.  Yet the true work is in the ordinary, mundane details and completing tasks step by step.

Emotions snatch us up and we get caught in the wave of mass emotion.  Yet strategic planning is needed for you, your family, your career, and your goals.  Identifying and completing the step by step tasks is the only way to victory.
Daily observe the details of your present pathway.  Understand the flow that constantly changes.

We are reconstructing and building to create sustainable lives.

It Is That Simple And That Complex At The Same Time.
