    What Black Women Want From A Man

    in Culture

    In order to have quality and meaningful relationships, we have to communicate clearly with each other. Last chapter, we listened to what Black men want from a Black woman...and now we are giving the mic to the women to express their own wants and desires. It's a modern thought that there are no good men, so let's hear how women define a good man in the first place! Men, be ready to take notes!!! Women, be ready to break it all the way down!!!

    in Radio

    As the season of Kwanzaa comes to an end, tonight's "MESSAGE AND THE MUSIC" show is dedicated to the message of Unity, Cooperation and Group Economics through Faith, Creativity, Self-Determination and Purpose.


    The seven principles of Kwanzaa are:


    Umoja (oo-MO-jah):  Unity stresses the importance of togetherness for the family and the community, which is reflected in the African saying, "I am We," or "I am because We are."


    Kujichagulia (koo-gee-cha-goo-LEE-yah): Self-Determination requires that we define our common interests and make decisions that are in the best interest of our family and community.


    Ujima (oo-GEE-mah) Collective Work and Responsibility reminds us of our obligation to the past, present and future, and that we have a role to play in the community, society, and world.


    Ujamaa (oo-JAH-mah) Cooperative economics emphasizes our collective economic strength and encourages us to meet common needs through mutual  


    Nia (NEE-yah) Purpose encourages us to look within ourselves and to set personal goals that are beneficial to the Kuumba (koo-OOM-bah) Creativity makes use of our creative energies to build and maintain a strong and vibrant community. 


    Imani (ee-MAH-nee) Faith focuses on honoring the best of our traditions, draws upon the best in ourselves, and helps us strive for a higher level of life for humankind, by affirming our self-worth and confidence in our ability to succeed and triumph.

    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!

    Celebrate Life: A Path to Happiness!

    in Relationships

    Welcome to Happiness Index.  We have just celebrated the Winter Solstice, Hanukkah, Christmas and now we are celebrating the 2nd day of Kwanzaa, Kujichagulia.   We are 5 days from New Year’s Eve, which is also Kokomon’s birthday and 6 days from New Year’s Day. This is truly a time of celebrations.  Are we happy?  Maybe we can be happy if we observe the values that the Kwanzaa Celebrations reminds us of.  There are seven core values for the seven days of Kwanzaa.  Today as we celebrate let us remember "Kujichagulia”, it asks us to define the world in our own image and interest placing indigenous people and culture at the center of our worldview and social reality. There are seven values of Kwanzaa, beginning with yesterday, Umoja which means unity; Kujichagulia, self-determination; Ujimaa, working together; Ujamaa, supporting each other; Nia, purpose; Kuumba, creativity; and Imani, faith.  We can extend this holiday season to every day of the year with Kwanzaa.  We can celebrate through faith by waking up, walking, eating, knowing that the little things is life is what matters most.  It is all in the way we see life.  Celebrate, be happy!  Thank you for joining us in this very important conversation on celebration as a path to happiness.  Call (347) 539-5818 and share your wisdom on this topic.

    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"

    Kwanzaa Ujamaa Day

    in Culture

    Ujamaa (Cooperative Economics) reaffirms the ethics of the harvest, shared work and shared wealth. It thus is opposed to in-equitable distribution of wealth, and re-source monopoly and plunder by the rich and powerful. And it teaches us to privilege the poor and vulnerable, and uphold the right of all peoples to live lives of freedom, dignity, well-being and ongoing development. Ujamaa also urges us to give rightful recognition and support to the small farmers and farm workers of the world for the vital role they play in feeding and sustaining peo-ple and the planet, especially in the context of the globalization of agriculture and its destructive effects on the lives and lands of the people.
