    RUMORS HAVE IT THAT IN A SECRET International Council for Ifa Religion (ICIR) CONFERENCE FOR MEMBERS ONLY, THE BOARD MADE SOME STRONG IRREVERSIBLE AND IRRESPONSIBLE DECISIONS THAT WOULD ROCK THE FOUNDATION OF IFA FOREVER.


    IN A UNANIMOUS AGREEMENT, REPORTEDLY, MEMBERS AGREED TO GIVE ALL DIASPORIANS, PARTICULARLY AFRICAN-AMERICANS, SEEKING IFA/ORISA KNOWLEDGE, INITIATIONS, EBOS, RITUALS, ETC;  ONLY ONE PERCENT (1%), OF WHAT THEY PAID FOR.


    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?

    Remembering Carnival Traditions, Part II

    in Culture

    The first carnival was staged in 1912 during the final years of Danish occupation and lapsed during World War I. Revived in 1952, carnival has become the second largest festival in the Caribbean.


    A month-long series of dazzling pageants and talent shows is held to choose royalty to rein over the festival. Fun events such as a boat race, Greased Pig Contest and Toddlers Derby entertain everyone at the festivities.


    A series of elimination contests to crown top performers are called Calypso Tents. Calypsonions offer satirical commentary on the state of the islands, oftentimes mocking the shenanigans of politicians. Other popular events held during Carnival is j'ouvert, a morning jump up, a food fair presenting the islands’ best traditional eats and a competition to crown the King and Queen of the parade troupes.


    A children's and adult’s parade close the lively month with brilliantly costumed and decorated troupes and floats.

    Sunday Morning Divine Service - Lamb of God Lutheran Church Papillion NE

    in Christianity

    9 am Sunday morning Divine Service for Confirmation Sunday 5/3/15. Traditional liturgy and law gospel sermon. Pastor Houser’s sermon from the gospel of John 15:1-8. In the gospel reading Jesus says, Abide in me and I in you...apart from me you can do nothing.” There is no other way to salvation; Jesus is the narrow way. We’re not responsible for abiding in Christ. God makes it possible with the means of grace - word and sacrament. Jesus wills our salvation.

    Politics Done Right - We are in trouble when comedians explain Baltimore better

    in Politics

    This week all the traditional mainstream media descended on Baltimore. There was acomment by protester Danielle Williams to MSNBC’s Thomas Roberts that exposed the dereliction of duty by the traditional mainstream media. She said the following.


    “My question to you is, when we were out here protesting all last week for six days straight peacefully, there were no news cameras, there were no helicopters, there was no riot gear, and nobody heard us,” Danielle Williams said. “So now that we’ve burned down buildings and set businesses on fire and looted buildings, now all of the sudden everybody wants to hear us. Why does it take a catastrophe like this in order for America to hear our cry?” she continued. “I mean, enough is enough. We’ve had too many lives lost at the hands of police officers. Enough is enough.”


    There is much within that statement.


    What do you think. Let’s talk about it.


    What are your thoughts? Let’s  talk. I will also be following our hash-tag #PoliticsDoneRighton Twitter. Give me a call.

    Journey-In-Rhythm Episode 7: "Planting, Farming , & Love" Guest - Abu Talib

    Contraction & Expansion of the Zodiac:
    Astrolonomical vs. Astrological


    Astrologers today are working with a dating scheme that has been outdated for over two millenia--and which was never particularly accurate to begin with. The traditional dates for the positions of the Zodiac constellations are simply incorrect. But modern astrologers don't actually observe the sky the way ancient astrologers did. They simply go by ancient charts based on the position of the Sun in the stars over 2000 years ago. As the following table indicates, the traditional dates for the Sun's position in the Zodiac are not only out of sync with the actual sky, but they are artificially separated into 30-degree segments to make each sign last an average of 30 days.


    TRADITIONAL ASTROLOGICAL DATES VS ACTUAL ASTRONOMICAL DATES *Astrological - (Aries 21 Mar - 19 Apr (30 day cycle)) Actual Astronomical - (Aries 19 Apr - 13 May (25 day cycle))*


    ASR's domain is Duat - the Egyptian Underworld.  He is a protective funerary god, guarding the west of the Nile where most of the cemeteries are located, and where the sun descended into the duat.  As ruler of the underworld, ASR ensures that the souls of the wicked and undesirable do not pass into his realm.  He is both a god of fertility and the embodiment of the dead and resurrected king. Once the ruler of Egypt died he became AST (who then gave orders to the living). Seker is Asar's title when he is resurrected and he takes his place in the Netherworld as the king.  In this aspect he presides over the judgement of the heart of the aspirant. His union with Aset symbolises the achievement of striving for spiritual salvation or resurrection The union with Nebethet symbolises bondage, suffering and the cycles of birth and death, known as reincarnation.

    in Education

    Most people who acquire Traumatic Brain Injuries, are often terminated from their respective employers due to the effects of the BI, which includes, but not limited to, Military Service. While some are fortunate enough to receive unemployment/ Workman's Comp benefits and some Veterans get a portion of what they rate, what does One do moving forward? If your Brain Injury precludes you from gaining traditional employment, what did the Doctors tell you? How does one sustain themselves and or their families after a Brain Injury?  Better yet... What do you do when you don't have any inspiration?

    Join Kevin and the Marvelous Maggie this week as we share the 7 Steps that has helped thousands of others achieve the LIFE of their Dreams instead of perpeatuating the ignorance of their past.
