Remembering & Dis-memberingA “member” is a “part.”
To re-member is to rejoin and bring together parts AND place in proper context and order.
To dis-member to is to dis-join and pull apart that which is whole and in the proper context and order. Dis-join-ted is the same word.
The wholeness of our consciousness has been dis-membered. We must re-member in order to restore the unity of consciousness of who we are. Remembering is becoming whole. This is the same as the process of becoming one within self which simultaneously brings us into wholeness with all else.
Other words that mean the same thing and represent the first side of the twin pairing are: re recall, recalibrate, relive, reacquire, repair, redefine, realign, restore, reset, rejuvenate and reawaken. Look up opposites to these words and their roots, i.e., look up reawaken, awaken and wake. In some cases it make be necessary to change the prefix, I.e, unalign, dealign, disalign, misalign, malalign (malign), upset, ill repair, etc. Remember, whatever we forget, we also forfeit understanding of it. Suffering is directly related to a lack of understanding. Suffering is born out of a lack of understanding. Thus the need for understanding, the need to know yourself and the need to be in the process of unifying understandings (re-membering). Remembering allows all the data and instructions in logic to be defragmented. This allows our thought processes to move from being discombobulated to being combobulated. Sankofa & false notion is the same twin pairing as “go back and fetch it/leave the past behind.”
