. (Part 15 of 15) 1. Spirituality is to religion as a field of plants is to a house plant. Religion is an extremely tiny portion of spirituality in a container of unnatural soil in an unnatural environment that is fed unnatural food unnaturally. 2. Humans are the Gods of religion because religion depends on humans to supply its needs. Spirituality is filled with the Gods of all Creation because spirituality is recognized as the source of all things that keeps all alive. Religion serves humans only and only some humans at that and usually males mainly and always does a disservice to Africans.
In other words, if you follow religion you are following Gods who serve humans only, some humans, males and who are not designed to help Africans. Religion is not for Africans (human beings) because a plant in a container cannot feed the entire person for life.
3. An established tree never stops repeating the growth process.
4. Stretching for understanding promotes growth of the capacity to understand.
In other words, in order to acquire new understanding, you have to take time and make room in your mind, so new and old information can be processed in the same mind space until connections and ordering are complete, resulting in understanding.
5. As Maat is fixed and variable, structure is for rigidity and flexibility.
6. When there is nothing better to do, don't do it.
Find something better to do.
7. Popularity profits someone not you.
8. Go along with the crowd only if you have scouted ahead and can make it back safely on your own.
9. Understanding that keeps you from understanding more is not understanding.
10. The branch is more secure, does more work and bears the load but the fruit gets the glory. Let it not be so with you, the fruit of all that came before.
11. Anything necessary but undone lives in your shadow. Your spirit bears the responsibility and struggles to move higher under the load.
12. The problem is not being afraid but staying afraid because understanding stays put.
13. Fear decreases as understanding increases.
14. Fear easily manipulates belief because belief has more of a basis in hope, wish and desire; however, fear's bluff is exposed in the Light of understanding gained through multiple ways of knowing.
15. What you have to do is not always the same as what you're here to do.
16. Answers won't come unless questions invite them into consciousness and studying goes and gets them.
17. “The only thing that changes is who's got the land and who don't.” (From the movie, “Posse”)
18. “I've heard of sweet milk turning sour but never the other way around.” (Granny Clampett, Beverly Hillbillies)
19. A culture of enslavement teaches you to feel free based on the length and color of your chains.
20. Let your willingness bring you to the river of understanding and the force of your search will carry you across guided by Ancestors on all sides.
21. Those who are wrong, weak, immature or fearful, attack, especially sneak attack. (UC#651)
Those who are strong and mature, fight back against the systems that give rise to their attackers, otherwise, there will never be peace.
22. The right to do something bears responsibility for doing it.
23. Life will be different when you are.
24. If you're going to follow a belief without investigating its merits, you might as well pattern your life after whoever introduced you to the idea.
25. Answers won't come unless questions invite them into the path of logic and studying paves the way.
26. The best you can do is in genetics potentially.
27. As spirituality is resurrected from the grave, fear, to rest, is laid.
28. Figuring out how to do something is often the hardest part of the process.
The hardest part is over. The rest is process – applying understanding to process.
29. “The struggle is never an event. It's a process - a continual eternal process.” (Kwame Ture)
30. The weaker nature within self, facilitates discouragement. Your stronger nature is your source of encouragement. Be aware of your weaker nature but pay more attention to your stronger nature.
31. “When you speak of being conscious, do not speak of being tired.” (Kwame Ture)
32. The only acceptable tiredness is at the end of the day when it's time to sleep.
33. African deep thought was not just back then (UC#701). It has always been since human origin. It is ongoing. African deep thought is not a monolith to visit and admire. It is an ever-changing ocean and mountain in each other, whose rhythms light the way for consciousness to follow in your process of becoming One Light.
34. If it is appropriate to breathe deeply and feel deeply, then it is also appropriate to think deeply – if you are to drink deeply from spirit.
35. Understanding requires continuous learning. Learning requires an open-mind and willing spirit.
36. Everything must return to its source, its origin. Since we came into existence through stages and a succession of origins, so also is the return journey home to Oneness - through the Blackness of the Black Whole into the Light of the Spiritual.
37. Anything can change in an instant because everything is always changing.
38. A problem is an abandoned solution.
39. To know truth is to honestly seek it.
"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.”
