    WAS DIVINATION DONE WITH ORUNMILA TO COME TO SUCH A DECISION AND IF SO WHAT WAS THE ODU?


    WAS THE DECISION TO GIVE DIASPORIANS ONLY 1% OF WHAT THEY PAID FOR, PURLY MOTIVATED BY GREED?


    WHAT WAS THE RATIONAL BEHIND SUCH A MAGNANIMOUS DECISION MADE BY NIGERIAN BABALAWOS AND CHIEFS IF NOT GREED?


    WAS ONE OF THE IMPLICATIONS SUCH AS HAVING CUBANS SAYING THE NIGERIANS HAD NO ASE, SPAWNED OUT OF MAKING SUCH A DECISION?


    WAS THIS DECISION A MOVE TO KEEP THE WIVES OF AWOS IN NIGERIA “BARE FOOT, PREGNANT AND ILLITERATE” OR WAS IT GEARED TOWARD KEEPING DOWN, THE PROGRESSIVE AND EDUCATED WOMEN IN IFA OF THE DIASPORA ORISA FAITH


    WAS THIS DECISION THOUGHT OF AS A POWER MOVE BASED PURELY ON ECONOMICS?


    HOW DID THIS MOVE AFFECT THE POSTERITY AND EFFICACY OF IFA ITSELF?


    WHO DID THIS MOVE HURT?

    Dixon D. White on "White Racial Responsibility" & Racial Healing

    in Politics Progressive

    Quite often, there are people who can be described as "a person for a time such as this."  

    Abraham Lincoln, Frederick Douglass, Harriet Tubman, Sojourner Truth, Susan B. Anthony, Teddy Roosevelt, Rosa Parks, Eleanor Roosevelt, Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., Malcolm X and so many others come to mind. Looking back on the context of their times in history, we loft them into super human statuses and forget that they were born like the rest of us and they have died like we all will.

    What unites all of these names from our history is the common trait that they had the courage to stand up, speak up and "ACT UP!!"

    That last phrase Act Up comes from our featured guest for this episode of The #SocialSpitballShow.

    Dixon D. White is a self-described redneck and reformed racist. Dixon has many experiences to draw from to elicit truth about race, which is, in part, that we cannot ignore it away. Dixon calls on fellow White Americans to embrace their "White Racial Responsibility" to speak up and ACT UP when they see racial hurt.

    I personally love the term "Act Up" because it makes me think of a child misbehaving, but also the clever bumper sticker that says that "Well-Behaved Women Never Make History." It's true & fitting because we need to step outside of our "comfort zone" of complacency and condoning of a terrible history of racism and violence in this country.

    This history of racism and violence manifests itself as much today as in the past. Racism is not over. We need to stand up to racism. With courageous folks like Dixon White speaking up and acting up on the subject, we can be sure to bring more healing and common ground.

    Won't you tune in and hear from this amazing & inspiring man and others like him? Barbara and I are excited to get this conversation going...

    Hope, Service & Responsibility: A Path to Happiness

    in Relationships

    You are listening to Happiness Index and we continue to deepen our conversation on Happiness. We will be sharing our views on hope, service and responsibility as a path to happiness.  We will explore views expressed by Vaclav Havel, former President of the Czech Rebubic on hope.  Vaclav Havel said,  Hope is definitely not the same thing as optimism.  It is not the conviction that something will turn out well, but the certainty that something makes sense, regardless of how it turns out.  A Course in Miracles reminds us that happiness is our choice and that the only thing we need do for vision, happiness and release from pain of any kind is to say these word and mean them with no reservations.   I am responsible for what I see.  I choose the feelings I experience, and I decide on the goal I would achieve. and that everything that seems to happen, I ask for and receive as I have asked. Our conversation  today will be on hope, service & responsibility as a path to happiness.  Thank you for listening to Happiness Index on Blog Talk Radio.  Join us in this conversation and be the change you want to see in the world, call (347) 539-5818.

    Responsibility: A Path to Happiness

    in Relationships

    We continue to focus on the role we play each moment each day to effect and ignite happiness. “A man is not rightly conditioned until he is a happy, healthy, and prosperous being; a man cannot directly choose his circumstances, but he can choose his thoughts, and so indirectly, yet surely, shape his thoughts, yet surely, shape his circumstances.”James Allen, author of As a Man Thinketh, said.  This wisdom is congruent to the wisdom of the ages. “Change your mind change your LIFE.” said Dr. Gerald Jampolsky.”  If we want inner peace and happiness, we must make the necessary efforts to make the change by thinking harmonious, peaceful and happy thoughts every moment. Thank you for tuning in to “Happiness Index”.  We would love to hear your wisdom on this very important subject, please call (347) 539-5818.
