From the Melanin Man:
I had this one on the burner (no pun intended) for about a year, and I’ve finally gotten around to discussing it.
Another word from the En with a double meaning…cook.
Here is the definition of the word cook, by way of Google:
1. prepare (food, a dish, or a meal) by combining and heating the ingredients in various way.
2. alter dishonestly, falsify
1. a person who prepares and cooks food, especially as a job or in a specified way.
We know what cooking is and what a cook does when it relates to food. That’s practically common sense. But we never think about the other definition of that word, which is highlighted above. The only time we use the word cook in that manner is when it comes to illegal activities or things of that ilk.
It doesn’t make sense a word associated with food preparation also shares the same definition of falsification and dishonest alteration. What if we use it that way when it comes the things we put in OUR MOUTHS? Altering dishonestly, so to speak, the vegetables, fruit, and animals that many of us eat on a daily basis?
Changing (a synonym for “alter”) them into green bean and broccoli cheese casseroles, apple pies and peach cobblers, and bread*.
“My wife loves her some peach cobbler”
(I know bread is sacred and a part of the S.A.D. (Standard American Diet) but have you ever scene any bread grown naturally by itself???)
Rotisserie chickens and smothered pork chops, and smoked BBQ ribs.
“The Brussels sprouts are the best thing on the plate!”
Sounds good doesn’t it?! LOOKS GOOD DOESN’T IT?! Mmmmmmmmm!!!
But shouldn’t our ( Black Melanin-Dominant individuals) daily diet consist of fruits and vegetables, minus the animals flesh of course, in their raw form? Granted, when it comes to some vegetables it’s OK to steam or lightly heat them so that they won’t lose their essence (or essential nutrients), close as possible to its raw, un-tampered form.
We SHOULD NOT be falsifying
(cooking) the foods we are eating! Nature’s produce, our fruits and vegetables
, is grown and matured from the energy/nutrients/information
from the Sun. From an individual and collective perspective, your soul cannot ELEVATE
when you’re feeding it’s temple dishonest, falsified, DEAD
foods! I’ve touched on this many times in the past, and it still holds true.
Look, I understand many of my brothers and sisters make a living off the S.A.D., which is primarily based off our creation of soul food. Hey, we have to do what we have to do to survive in the reality. I still “cook” and buy “cooked” food from time to time as well. So I have work to do myself personally.
I yearn for the day when we as a collective focus our energies on actually feeding the soul and soul ascension, instead of getting caught up in the mundane activities (i.e eating), the merry-go-round madness of this third dimensional entrapment.
Maybe then things will truly for the better for the Black Melanin-Dominant collective.
It’s funny that many of us don’t know the meaning and definitions of words that we frequently use. Language matters, and it has many implications on the metaphysical realm as well. We must understand the words we use everyday so we can understand the hidden energies we may be unknowingly allowing into our lives, positive and negative.
When you’ve been striped of your culture and language, the one that fits your biology best, you lose your essence and identity.
What is OUR TRUE culture and language, my fellow Black Melanin-Dominant brothers and sistas?
Marinate (again no pun intended lol) on this one for a moment. I have more words in store to discuss. In due time, though, in due time.
Peace and Love to my melanated family,
The Melanin Man
