"Free and critical minds can emerge only by a return to the source-the primary sources. A free and critical mind takes nothing for granted and is not intimidated by "authorities" who frequently may be more confused than the general public. Free and critical minds seek truth without chauvinism or shame." - Dr. Asa G. Hilliard III (1)



“One single bit of information, if missing, incomplete, out of order or just plain wrong, has the potential to significantly alter thought processes, conclusions, decisions and behaviors, even when that one single logic entry exists in a sea of accuracy.”

Knowledge Is Salvation | Unity Consciousness #28
Africans Must Study To Win The Great War Against Racism

What Is Study?

Study is mental food and other forms of nutrition.

Study is whatever is done that improves knowledge of self. It is many activities such as learning genealogy and biographies, conversations, communing, experimenting, introspection, listening, meditating, observing, searching, practicing, questioning, reading, re-searching, reflection, remembering, trying, watching, and more.

Study IS NOT about becoming a historian and remembering a bunch of names, dates and events. Study is for the purpose of understanding. Understanding helps us contruct lives using relationships that match the African way of thinking.

More Reasons To Study

1. Mother Destiny is calling us to Greatness. Through study we answer the spirit's call.

2. To know what must be done in general (what every African must do) and also to know what must be done specifically (what each person's assignments are).

3. We cannot see truth through the lenses of a lie.* Because we have been miseducated, we have been taught lies. It is not possible to do #2 above if our thinking is based on lies.

4. If we want to change our lives, we must change the information we use to guide our thinking. Through study, we give our minds the knowledge it needs and craves. Then our thought process will function on our behalf; therefore, so will our behaviors.
Studying is one of several ways to get mental, spiritual, emotional and physical nutrition and medicine that will help feed our knowledge of self and sense of self and sense of self-esteem that will reorient and rebalance our psyche.

5. Understanding implies studying. If we say we understand something, yet have not studied, we only have someone else's understanding. When we operate based on another person's understanding, it is only possible to believe something. It is not possible to know it.
Belief is a blind choice, which is a guess, because it is absent of understanding. No amount of faith or emotion can transform a lack of understanding into understanding. Study must inform it in order to transform it. Likewise, fear is not a good reason to remain foolish but fear is a good indicator stupidity will eventually develop.

6. Study is each person's responsibility. By fulfilling this responsibility, the Rights Of Creation become realized.

7. Everything we need to know has already been told to us by our ancestors. It is in many forms in our possession and within reach. The African worldview is the way to understanding the way Africans speak and the key to understanding secrets we'd rather not keep.

8. To those who think they know enough to live by: Knowledge needs more knowledge in order to stay fresh, active and growing within and without. In other words, knowledge is the nutrition of knowledge. If knowledge is not being increased, knowledge will decrease.

9. Through study we will be able to know how to adjust what is already being done. Through study we will know what connections to make and what connections to break.

10. Through study, we clear up contradictions. Just because something is right or wrong in society doesn't mean it is right or wrong for us. Racism is right and we know that's wrong. It is wrong to teach truth about history and we know that couldn't be right. Through study, we learn to adjust our value system until it aligns with who we are before we became sick following the ways of the wicked.

Without study, a person who believes or disbelieves can only reach the decision through the use of substitute proof for the truth. We come to know truth through study.

11. Through study, consciousness reawakens. When we wake up, we stop sleeping on the job and the work that must be done will get done straightaway.

12. Study of self is a co-catalyst that move awareness from thinking everything's okay and “I don't need to change” to an honest self-assessment that allows us to at least be able to see the need for self-correction. Self-study does not guarantee we will take additional steps to carry out self-correction but self-study is necessary before correction at the fundamental level can take place.

Knowledge Is Salvation

Knowledge transforms limitation into liberation.

To be “saved” means to be “liberated” from something.*

Some say, to be saved is to be liberated from the sting of sin, the second death. To be saved in African terms means increasing knowledge of self which liberates consciousness from the stagnation of incompleteness (not becoming more unified with creation). This is “sin” to whoever knows to do it but chooses not to. Why? Choosing not to become more unified with creation is to not move closer to the Creator. This denies the Creator the opportunity to experience the triumph of the higher self through us. It is we, who make the world better, by becoming better. This occurs as we transform the limitation of the lower self into the liberation of the higher self.

Through study, we work ourselves (singular) out of our situation (singular). Therefore, we liberate ourselves. Therefore, through study, we work out our own salvation. How? Knowledge changes thinking which changes behavior. Knowledge of self is knowledge of the Creator which automatically aligns behavior with the Creator's. Behavior that matches the Creator's is salvation.


Africans must study. The Creator is studying and so must we. We must study to show ourselves approved and worthy of the Creator's genes that are in us. These genes are the source of genius. It is the destiny of greatness to all who answer the call. Through us, the power and glory of the Creator will once again be made known to all, on Earth, as it is in Heaven.
