For All Points-Of-The-View.
You get to ask "The Question Of The week" this week.
So go ahead.
Ask me anything.
"WHAT!!?? Why the request?"
There is no values.
Values does not exist where in reality.
Values does not exist in distance, time and form.
Values are made up - they exist only in language.
Likewise, there are no already existing "blessings" - it only exist in language.
Also, I say, make not difference whether you and I agree or disagree.
What matter is who you BE as a human BEING and understanding, agreeing, blessing and education is not required, though valuable.
I understand - though it is not required, as well as, that which is valuable.
I suggest you stop saying "I understand" and begin BEING what you said you understand. Stop saying and seeking to understand.
Why? I BE who I BE and it is not required for YOU to know or understand my beginning or end of BEING, however, YOU communicate and suggest ideas - thoughts ??? - for what?
HE IS BEING A LITTLE HARSH HUH?
When if ever will we as a Diaspora ever be in a different status?
I am past 40 and I dont see any change
in our youth I see regression...Most arent interested in anything Afrocentric or Afrocentered...and Life is so much harder in the lagging economy! I am tired my brother.....More tired than I have ever been.... is this what Dr King , Malcolm, Medgar and all the others died for??????? Where is the real progress? I cant find it anymore....Obama was the biggest disappointment of my entire life.....after the hype! Many of the afrocentric people I knew told me he was going to be a lie and I hoped for so much more......I am tired and sick .....I had never thought I would be in this mood! But I am making plans to leave this Allah-forsaken country!!
That's the short answer.
Wherever you go, you will be there.
And, as long as you are there, the status quo will prevails.
You are caught in a Chinese trap - a monkey in a banana trap.
Resistance is futile.
When you begin to see things as they are and be responsible for the way things are, then and only then is it possible not to change but create a new paradigm for yourself and human being.
It is basic physics - "What you resist persist" - Change is the only constant in the universe.
When you look at things differently, the way things occur is different, said Ghandi.
The way out the monkey trap is to be in the trap and be willing to be responsible for the way things are - WITHOUT COMPLAINTS.
You are the one.
Wherever you go you are there!
I UNDERSTAND - NO COMPLAINTS - I ALSO understand
"Living life like I have forever and living each day as if it is my Last"
That you understand NO COMPLAINTS makes no difference.
No Complaining makes a difference and you don't have to understand it.
BEING it not understanding it is what matters.
Whether nor not one lives like each day is the last day, by itself, makes no difference.
It is my opinion that what matters is who you are BEING while living each day as it were the last.
What matters - is that I understand for myself and for those that I LOVE. I agree - though it is not required or makes a difference, that who I BE each day BE significant.
KWASI...WHAT YOU JUST SAID WAS WAAAAY HARSH TO ME! I HAVE BEEN IN THE MOVEMENT SINCE I WAS 13 YEARS OLD! HOW DOES ONE NOT GET TIRED OF BEING OPPRESSED! NO COMPLAINING WHEN I HAVE WORKED TIL BEING TIRED AND FOR YOU TO BE HARSH! WOW! I WONT ASK YOU ANYTHING ELSE...
I could have been less "harsh" - sugar coat it.
But, what good would that do?
That would not serve you.
This is the pit one falls into when one seek answers.
We don't accept the answer we get.
We hold out for the answer we want - the one that makes us feel good.
Aisha, your oppression is personal to you, and yet, it is not personal to you as a person nor us as a people.
There is a way out of the condition you are in.
You, can not, however, get out of the trap by being who you have always been being and doing what you have always been doing.
Are you interested in finding a possible way out?
Let me know if you are willing.
