“You have to be twice as good” is one of those things, for certain. Truth is, every person has the ability to be twice as good when using the higher-self to direct genetic potential in comparison to someone else who is using their genetic potential the lower self way.
It is as simple as that.
Do not try to be twice as good using lower-spirit ideologies (most of what societies are about). You have no business dreaming the dreams these societies promote. Make these dreams come true and you will likely end up being twice as bad – even as you become successful based on the society's lower-self definitions.
For example, a college degree is paid-in-full verification of additional miseducation. It is a lower-self key. One of many reasons is that there are too many people with degrees and too few jobs for college graduates. Another reason is that people with high school degrees are more secure in their jobs than those with college degrees. It takes more than a degree to provide a guarantee of security. Being in a union is a better form of security when you live in a society even though a union is actually a bastardized form of a communal group. Being in other types of groups provides better job security than a college degree. Also being willing to settle for less than what you are capable of, being willing to be an employed pawn or sheep and being willing to backstab provides more job security than a college degree. This is how many, whose performance is less, achieve so-called success. You can be twice as good if you want to but it is not guaranteed to do you any good.
Need Incentive & ChallengeIn keeping with need incentive and challenge, it is necessary for the higher-self to have the ability to overcome the lower-self. This then means the higher-self is endowed with extra strength power that the lower-self does not have. This then allows the higher-self to be twice as good as the lower-self and even make better use of genetic potential to figure out and overcome all the devious devisings of the lower-self. This is true even if the lower-self is ten times or one thousand times as bad. The higher-self has the ability to be twenty-times or two thousand times as good. Higher-self use of genetic potential has the ability to do whatever it takes to overcome anything and everything the lower-self can do. Every single one of the lower-self's lies, tools, weapons and what have you, can be overcome by the higher-self use of genetic potential.
Once you know this, you will not believe anything else. From a human perspective, it is a challenge to the original homo sapiens to have to overcome all the other forms of themselves (their children) currently existing in the world and masquerading as “races” and all manner of mistaken identities. In other words, because of universal karma, need incentive and challenge, humans who are in increasing awareness and acceptance of our Africanness, must achieve the same and more against seemingly low odds and seemingly insurmountable odds.
Yes, the lower-self is powerful because the lower-self is a twin power; however, the lower-self is the weaker twin - significantly weaker.
Contrary To Popular BeliefEverything we benefit from today has come from the higher-self use of genetic potential.
Everything that works against balance, harmony and the ecosystem of humans and non-humans comes from lower-self use of genetic potential.
Contrary to what you have been taught at home and elsewhere, you, African, do not have to be twice as good as those who believe they are not African. All you have to do is choose the higher-self to instruct you in the use of your genetic potential. That is more than enough. It will help you gain an abundance of power (understanding) to pair with the rest of your genetic potential (power) so you can deal with an abundance of challenge. Though I speak to you, the individual, this only works when we function communally within self, communally with other humans and communally with all else. Humans are not the only ones in the struggle and neither is the mind the main thing. Humans need more than humans and more than their minds to both challenge and overcome other humans. Humans need the four inseparable aspects of self working in conjunction with the ecosystem outside of self.
Driving The Example Home, Where It StartedHere's the reality of the “you have to be twice as good” home training. Even when you are twice as good, if you are not doing what the need incentive requires of you, by increasing in understandings, the lower-self can still get you. Also, when you are not supported by communal ideologies, philosophies, values and definitions that are helping you optimize logic, conclusions and decisions, the lower-self can get you much more easily.
Even if it is true that you have to be twice as good, it does you no good if you go about being twice as good in a suboptimal way (on the enemy's terms using the enemy's education, “as is,” without adjusting it back into an optimal form). The lower-self will reconfigure, shape-shift, get several people and their institutions to work together and get you. This occurs not due to superior intelligence but due to the process of basic math. This has been proven by an uncountable number of examples such as the destruction of African Wall Street, African Panthers, African Farmers, Haiti, the stealing of African creativity, land, labor other resources and the destruction of the minds, bodies and emotions of all children for the past several thousand years, and the list goes on. History has proven to us that “being twice as good,” never has and never will be good enough.
More understanding must be added to the mix in order to change the equation from an inequality and shortages to an equation of equality and abundance.
This type of understanding comes by choosing the higher-self to guide us and help us recalibrate back to functioning as an Ecosystem so the lower-self cannot divide us, against self and against each other and against all else designed to restore and maintain health.
