    Spiritual Revolution or Revolutionary Suicide.

    in Culture

    Are we addicted to the very things that's are destroying us? How do we rid ourselves of the nihilistic, depressing, selfish, egotistical, hedonistic attitudes that affect us daily? Part of the answer is getting back to a sense of community. The Nguzo Saba gives us a value system for us to unify around. Self determination, collective work, and cooperative economics can serve as remedies to this hellish lifestyle we've adopted.

    KWANZAA! HOLIDAY OR FOLLY-DAY? DR. KARENGA WAS AN ATHEIST!

    in Religion

    THESE ARE THE PURPORTED SEVEN PRINCIPLES OF KWANZAA!    The Nguzo Saba of the 7 days of KWANZAA: Day 1. Umoja means UNITY. Day    2. Kujichagulia means SELF-DETERMINATION.   Day 3. Ujima means WORKING TOGETHER.    Day 4. Ujamaa means SUPPORTING EACH OTHER.    Day 5. Nia means PURPOSE.    Day 6. Kuumba means CREATIVITY.     Day 7. Imani means FAITH, especially FAITH in OURSELVES.   


    KWANZAA.    DR. KARENGA was an ATHEIST!   THE PRINCIPLES OF "FAITH" KWANZAA PURPORTS TO UPHOLD ARE WITHOUT A DEFINITE ABSOLUTE SENSE OF A REFERENCE POINT FOR REVERENCE. WHAT MEN CREATE TO CELEBRATE.  ARE THEY WHO CELEBRATE THIS CUSTOM ACTUALLY AS THEY SAY, "CONSCIOUS FOLK"?   OR ARE THEY MERELY BLINDING THEMSELVES WITH PRETENSE?



    Everyone who observes KWANZAA today is NOT an ATHEIST!   It is because MEN have believed the MOST HIGH sanctions whatever MEN would associate with HIS NAME regardless of its SOURCE, that there is so little genuine RESPECT for the MOST HIGH as HE TRULY IS!   Without a STANDARD, HOW shall we genuinely as a PEOPLE be truly SAVED?   How shall we become TRULY STRONG in RETURNING unto YAH HIMSELF as HE IS?  .. and as WE were CREATED to BE?   YAH has declared a PLAN by which HIS PEOPLE shall be RENEWED TRUE to ANCIENT STRENGTH!

    The ORACLE Speaks With ... YOU!

    in Spirituality

    Celebrate KWANZZA


     


    Kwanzaa celebrates what its founder called the seven principles of Kwanzaa, or Nguzo Saba (originally Nguzu Saba—the seven principles of African Heritage), which Karenga said "is a communitarian African philosophy," consisting of what Karenga called "the best of African thought and practice in constant exchange with the world." These seven principles comprise *Kawaida, a Swahili term for tradition and reason. Each of the seven days of Kwanzaa is dedicated to one of the following principles, as follows:


     



    Umoja (Unity): To strive for and to maintain unity in the family, community, nation, and race.

    Kujichagulia (Self-Determination): To define ourselves, name ourselves, create for ourselves, and speak for ourselves.

    Ujima (Collective Work and Responsibility): To build and maintain our community together and make our brothers' and sisters' problems our problems, and to solve them together.

    Ujamaa (Cooperative Economics): To build and maintain our own stores, shops, and other businesses and to profit from them together.

    Nia (Purpose): To make our collective vocation the building and developing of our community in order to restore our people to their traditional greatness.

    Kuumba (Creativity): To do always as much as we can, in the way we can, in order to leave our community more beautiful and beneficial than we inherited it.

    Imani (Faith): To believe with all our hearts in our people, our parents, our teachers, our leaders, and the righteousness and victory of our struggle


     


    The ORACLE Speaks ..... "all-ways remember to love yourself"
