From the Melanin Man:

If we only had the opportunity, AND the environment, to  be who we REALLY are. In every single facet of our lives, EVERY SINGLE DAY,  we practice the European-Centered Thought patterns that contradict our TRUE NATURE.

Time to REPROGRAM back to our original programming!

Melanin-Dominant (Black-Africans)

(African-Centered Thought)

Melanin Recessive (Caucasians, Europeans, whites)

(European-Centered Thought)

-Equally uses right and left hemisphere of brain and mid-brain. -Characterized by unholistic Egotism, illogical use of left mind, non-spiritual individualism, rationalizations and non-creative.
-Characterized by right-minded spiritual concepts, love, affection, and sharing. -Rationales based upon conflict between evil subconscious and good conscious. Military logic and predator nature.
-Time exists in the “now” and is eternal and cyclic. Future, past and present are combined. -No present tense of life. Life exists in the past and future; this results in time conflicts and places no value on present.
-Time is based on the beginning and ending of an event and is composed of the seen and unseen (spiritual, God manifested) causes of an event. Commonly called colored people time. Time is fixed by the event. For example, the seasons of spring, summer, winter and fall start according to nature’s (unseen) clock. -Time is a fixed abstract measurable duration. The seasons start according to a fixed calendar and not according to nature.
-Thoughts are concept oriented. The meanings of thoughts as well as of words are based on the story (situations) they are used in. For example, the word “bad” can be meant as good, modern, intellectual, excellence or bad. Consequently, this gives rise to statements such as “that’s a bad car.” -Thoughts are linear oriented. The meaning of words are fixed and based upon static logic rationales. Consequently, a “bad car” means a car unacceptable instead of the Afri-Centric meaning of an excellent car.
-Culture is based upon Maat, the family (extended) marriage, ancestors, harmony with nature, spirituality -Culture is based upon creating evil to control good and creating good to control evil.

-Have a pride-type family (similar to animals).

-Control of nature.

-Religions are political systems used to manipulate the powerless.

-Communal. Family-centered. -Self-centered.
-Property owned by society; shared resources. -Property is owned by individuals; no sharing of resources.
-Marriages: Predominantly polygamous included polygyny and monogamous marriages. -Monogamous and the practice of polygamous relationships as sexual recreation (illegalgamy).
-Sex is reproductive, regenerational, and spiritually used to serve Maat. -Sex is a physical activity, recreational, and reproductive.
-Individual’s value in society is based upon what the individual contributes to society or “you are what you do.” -“You Are What You Own.”
-Economics. Abundantly sharing your goods, talent, labor, child rearing, and knowledge with society. -Economics based upon scarcity, consumerism, or the creation of shortages. Thus, only an elite few can gain access to goods, resources, talent and knowledge.
-Science is wholistic and controlled by Maat. -Science is rational and abstract based upon one group (the elite) controlling a system.
-Religion. Monotheism (belief in one God). -Belief in many Gods. God created the Devil. (Evil type God).
-A person is born to achieve their highest level of humanism. – A person is born in sin.
-Life is based on sense (seen) and NON-SENSE (unseen) and is beyond the power of the mind. -Life based upon seen, measured, touched or abstracted knowledge.
-Humans belong to God (no slavery). -Humans are owned by man (Full Slavery).

Food For Thought: Throwing Out the Word “Compromise” Vicariously

 

 

 

Image result for compromise

 

From the Melanated Man:

 

Through my own life experiences, I’ve been IN-SPIRED to write about a subject that is very touchy when it involves all types of relationships.

Whewwwwww… MANNN!

I’ve been itching to write this post for over a year now and I feeling have the motivation to do it. Everyone in some capacity know a little something something about this word. I personally have great internal conflict when an dispute incurs between certain loved ones and I and the word is mentioned (99.9% of the time I’m not the one saying it) effortlessly without giving much though to what happens when it occurs.

Compromise. SMH.

It’s something we have to do to simply exist in life, in every facet of this life,  in THIS reality. From the day we are born we have to compromise, we WERE compromised i.e. if you consider the fact we were infected with vaccinations under the premise of “protecting us.” We have to compromise to prolong relationships at work, in marriage, friendships, you name it, just so they can survive,though not necessarily blossom.  For those of us who are Black Melanin-Dominant, melanin-rich, hundred of years even before the days of America’s birth, we’ve compromised our culture and identity just so we can “live another day.”

What kind of PARADIGM have we, brothers and sistas, compromised ourselves to be a part of?

Have you ever took a deep look at the definition of compromise?

 

Definition of compromise, by way of Google dictionary:

noun:

  1. an agreement or a settlement of a dispute that is reached by each side making concessions.

verb:

  1. settle a dispute by mutual concession.
  2. accept standards that are lower than is desirable.

 

In my most humble opinion, this is THE MOST divisive act to the development of ALL MAN and WO-MAN!  No matter the amount of melanin content in and out of your body.

When it boils down to it, each and every one of us are the sum of our relationships, specifically the quality (not quantity) of them. Yet the quality of the relationship that you have for yourself is what matters the most in determining the quality of your life. And each time you decide to compromise your  overall essence to appease others and “protect yourself,” you are unknowingly killing yourself spiritually so not to offend others.

Now, I’m not referring to compromise when it comes to the trivialities, silliness. I’m talking about concerns (i.e. belief system, lifestyle choices, etc.) that are foundational to any relationship.

If you really, truly love yourself (not a love that is SELFISH) that emanates from within you, and is grounded in the TRUTH, THE REALNESS OF LIFE, you will seek those  external relationships that will only ENHANCE the love that you already have within YOURSELF.

For example, my brothers and sistas…

  • If you value family and community, you’ll seek a spouse(s?) that value procreation, “be fruitful and multiply,” aspects of life over the mundaneness of career advancement and accolades.
  • If we value our MELANATED TEMPLES the way we ought to, we would at best skeptical of what goes in and on the surface of our  bodies.
  • If we were aware, let alone valued, who, what, and where we truly came from, there would be a MILLION THINGS we wouldn’t tolerate as a people from others.

You WILL NOT COMPROMISE yourself out of F.E.A.R. (False Evidence Appearing Real) of  inclusion, loneliness, rejection, ridicule, extinction. And the list goes on, and on, and on, and on, and on…

It’s based of the illusion of fear. This is a MIND GAME (rather MIND FUCK!) we’ve been duped into playing.

On a more personal note, recently over the 9-10 months, I’ve come to the conclusion that some relationships, whether marital, familial, non-familial, etc. are in your life for a season (no matter the length of time) for a reason. If you’re lucky enough to have realized your purpose in life, you have to align yourself properly to walk in that purpose, no matter the circumstances. That may mean letting go of certain relationships you hold near and dear. Husbands, wives, parents, siblings, friends and in some cases, your own children. Trust me, typing that last sentence was tough. That’s a hard pill to swallow.  As I’ve become the man that I need to be, I have inadvertently created some tough decisions that I will have to make later down the road. I’m almost certain of that.  Yet at the end of the day we all individually have a destiny and we have a responsibility to walk in it. Some of us are fortunate enough to know our paths, and others are even more fortunate enough be attached to others that share that same path.

Birds of a feather truly flock together. Where there are those who are of ONE MIND, compromise DOES NOT exist.

 

A compromise is an agreement whereby both parties get what neither of them wanted

 

On a broader scope, family, there may be some people that we may need to let go to truly thrive individually and collectively. Hey, there are those of us who don’t see the benefit of altering their consumption in ALL areas of our lives. There are a multitude of us who don’t give a DAMN about their melanin-rich skin,  Black-African culture and MY-STERY, or Black-African solidarity in general.

Simply put, there are too many of us who don’t WANT  TO AWAKE FROM OUR SLUMBER!

And you can’t help those that won’t help themselves. Does that mean you should compromise your character and integrity to keep the relationship afloat?

HELL NO! But that’s just me.

Yet stay positive and hopeful for better days for those relationships you decide to move on from. There will always be a connection, and you never know, yours paths may cross once more. And things may be different the next go around. Life has a funny way of throwing boomerangs at you!

Know who you are and stay true to yourself, fam. Consider removing the term compromise from your vocabulary altogether.

You’d be doing YOUR SOUL a TREMENDOUS service.

 

Peace and Love to my melanated family,

The Melanin Man

 

Sending you off with some more quotes!

 

If you constantly compromise things in your life how will you ever realize your full potential1

 

 

Compromise is but the sacrifice of one right or good in the hope of retaining another - too often ending in the loss of both. Tryon Edwards

“Am I a Capitalist by Nature or by Nurture?” – The Case for Cooperation over Competition for the Black Melanin-Dominant Man/Woman

 

Image result for black unity

 

From the Melanated Man:

Recently I joined a burgeoning co-operative named ULU: Us Lifting Us, based in Atlanta, GA but geared specifically to the Black Melanin-Dominant community. This is the second cooperative (Sevananda Marketplace in Little Five Points of Atlanta) that I have chosen to join in the past 18 months. Both are ran and owned by a majority Black-Melanin Dominant populace, yet ULU only allows those of Black-African decent to purchase ownership.

I really do love and value my individuality, which is what gave me the confidence to create The Melanin Man blog. Yet when it comes to the task of uplifting my Black Melanin-Dominant brothers and sisters around the globe, I am only one cog within a larger apparatus. Which is why their are many more Black African minded bloggers besides myself to share the load as well. And that conviction is only magnified further by my personal decision to join within cooperatives that will directly benefit my peoples economically.

I have touched on the idea of entrepreneurship for the Black-Melanin Dominant once before. And to elaborate even further, I am of the opinion that entrepreneurship in its modern form is NOT NATURAL to the archetypal Black-Melanin Dominant men and women.  When it comes to “doing your own thang”, starting your own  business/company, one must first question their motives and intentions.

I know you may be working for a company that doesn’t value your TRUE worth, making kibbles and bits while the company continues to make millions off you. I know you may be tired of “dealing with white folk” on a daily basis, playing office politics, steadily trying to climb that ever elusive corporate ladder. I know you want to break away from the corporate version of the PLANTATION.

Trust me, I GET IT.

But besides the potential financial freedom that could be available to you and your immediate family, is your decision to delve into this Europeanized version of entrepreneurship really going to benefit your community? Our community, brothers and sisters, is NOT a charity nor a measly donation.

It is OUR responsibility to care and nurture it.

Again, is  capitalism by way of entrepreneurship the way to build up our community, brothers and sistas? For the longest I have had a huge ideological conflict with conforming to capitalism, even before I became more aware of the precarious conditions of the  Black-Melanin Dominant populace on the world stage. At times I’d ask myself, “Is this  really the ONLY effective way to make a living?”

For capitalism to thrive, not only do you need to develop new markets but you need to preserve your current markets as well (i.e. “keep them happy and coming back for more.” ) I don’t believe perpetuating, let alone participating in, a system that takes advantage of another. People’s needs can easily be manipulated, and they have been, just to keep the wheels rolling. Even the simple, sacred occupations that we choose to take up and we insist our children to do the same have been defiled by capitalism:

-Doctors in Western society won’t remain employed if their patients don’t get (and REMAIN) sick (see a repost: Medical Doctors: Are They Killing Us?  )

-There would be no reason for engineers to design the latest and greatest  (from cellphones to cars) with small incremental changes year to year if people as a whole decide to drive and keep the devices and contraptions for longer periods of time.

-Lawyers can’t make a buck while exploiting the law through a bias and corrupted justice code, and taking advantage of Western-induced stressful relationships through the current divorce racket.

And the list goes on and on and on and on…

Capitalism has been embedded in every fabric of our society, effecting the Black Melanin-Dominant man and woman the most, in  my opinion. We have been forced to embrace an acidic ideology, knowingly and unknowingly screwing each other over like crabs in a bucket just to “make a living.”  And when you began to embrace capitalism, TEN TIMES OUT OF TEN you tend to compromise your skills, your talents, your creativity, and ultimately your integrity to make a buck.  Are we rightfully serving the Black Melanin-Dominant community this way? Or are we simply just a group of BLACK-FACED small businesses in competition with one another? Our participation within this paradigm is hindering our progression toward true  SELF-DETERMINATION and SELF-RELIANCE.

 

There was once a time not too long ago where the idea of cooperation reigned supreme amongst our people. Within ancient African culture, the first and only one that matters when it comes to the world’s origins, it was THE foundation of our culture. It was expressed through the arts, education, economies, the family…all aspects of life.  It was understood that the individual was crucial and important to the stability of the collective. Yet at the end of the day, NO MAN OR WOMAN was greater than the collective. Not to say that it was perfect by any stretch of the imagination. More than likely our ancestors had their fair share of issues (i.e. past and present African tribalism)  amongst themselves. Nevertheless, it was (and still is) the essence of our DNA. Despite any incremental intricacies amongst any given tribe or nation of us, at the end of the day, we are still ONE people (check out the African constitution written in  Chancellor Williams “The Destruction of Black Civilization.” It accurately illustrates the core tenets of our culture once upon a time.)

Do you find lions organizing with hyenas? Do you see bears conversing with wolves? (If you have see any of this with your own naked eyes let me know.) I say this to say that we family need to stick together and be prejudice when it comes to taking care of business and one another, no matter our  personal background and circumstances. You may not agree with me, but I personally believe I have more in common with a drug dealer or serial criminal offender who is Black Melanin-Dominant than the guy/gal working in a cubicle next to me who is Arab/Asian/Caucasian with a seemingly kosher lifestyle. The only REAL difference between me and the drug dealer/serial drug offender is our response to the European colonialist construct we have been pressed to endure in spite of TRUE NATURE as a melanin-rich people.

Collective consciousness is indeed rising around the glove. Yet, the cream of the crop must take their rightful place on top.

My brothers and sisters, you are NOT my competition. You are my allies, my family. We must begin to work along, for, and with one another to reclaim that top spot once more.

It’s time to turn those words, the rhetoric we have been preaching, into tangible action.

 

 

Peace and Love to my melanated family,

The Melanin Man

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Graduating from “Thank Ya” Jesus

 

thank-you-lawd-jesus

 

From The Melanin Man:

From everything that is going on in the world these days, from the Las Vegas “massacre”, the shenanigans protests of the NFL, the undercover manipulation erratic and hectic hurricane season, YOU NAME IT, I can honestly say it is extremely difficult to keep attention on your own personal affairs. Granted, I have empathy and sympathy for those who were/are deeply affected by such travesties (minus the drama surrounding the NFL, which is a load of crap.) But there are just so many distractions in this paradigm that the most disciplined individual can get deeply side-tracked from their own development if they’re not careful.

Hence, which is part of the reason I am typing this long overdue post.

I have written many iterations of this sensitive topic, in my head. Some iterations were a little too emotional. Others were too safe and conservative. Then there were some iterations that were totally out in left field , totally off topic.

But now I feel like the one I am typing now fits my current perspective the best. And here goes…

 

Like the majority  Black-Melanin Dominant folk born and raised in the Deep South, I was well-versed on the story and miracles of JEEEEE-SUS.

Jesus walked on water.

Jesus helped a blind man see.

Jesus turned water into wine.

Jesus fed the multitude with five loaves and two fish.

Jesus died on the cross to save a wretched world from its sins… and resurrected three days later for kicks and giggles.

And just like the majority of Black-Melanin Dominant folk in the South, I was pressed to aspire to be like Jesus, in all facets of his life. (remember those WWJD? bracelets?) I was encouraged to call out the name of Jesus in my times of trouble, to ask for his protection and guidance in those moments when I needed it the most.

From the dinner table to the bedroom. You know the life, fam.

I could not EAT A MEAL at the dinner without first giving reverence to the man. I remember those many, many nights I was on my knees before I went to sleep, giving him even more reverence as if I did not just do the same at dinner only a few hours earlier.

“Can I get an AMEN, family?”

On the surface, there is nothing wrong with this lifestyle….honoring Jesus’ existence, constantly thanking him for his sacrifices to humanity as a whole,  aspiring to be like a man who was essentially God in the flesh! That sounds like a stable upbringing to me. My parents and elders trained me in the direction that I should go. This seems righteous and just…on the surface.

That upbringing sustained me through a complex childhood to the early years of an even more complex adulthood. So it had to have some validity to it. Right?!

Even though “Thank Ya” Jesus held me down during that time, I had unconventional questions that I could never answer with my conventional mind and thinking process, such as…

Who were God’s parents?

Why was God lonely?

What does God look like?

And the list goes on and on and on and on…

My life experiences (some of which are mentioned in the My Transformation post series and my impending memoir) and newfound desire for knowledge altered my perspective on not only on Mr. “Thank Ya” Jesus Christ, but Christianity and religion as a whole.

By unearthing a far-too-long neglected appreciation  for my Black-melanated skin,  for a very brief moment I was on the “Jesus is actually Black” tip. But that didn’t hold water with me for long because I knew their had to be more involved than simple skin color.

black jesus

My thirst for more truth led me into stumbling upon the little known fact that ALL world religions, from Buddhism to Judaism, owe its existence to the ancient African spiritual systems (see Ancient Egyptian mythology.) Which led me to an even more well-kept secret that the story of Jesus has an eerie similarity to other sacrificial savior-like tales such as those of the Egyptian God Heru, Buddha, Krishna, etc.has an eerie similarity to other sacrificial savior-like tales such as those of the Egyptian God Heru, Buddha, Krishna, etc.

 

With all of the information available in the world that makes a pretty convincing case that Jesus is more fairy tale like the Easter Bunny than actual factual real to the realest, common sense started to take over. And then one day I came to this realization…

There was one (if he even existed) Jesus Christ, and there will never be another.

There is only one me (I am NOT a robot and I DO EXIST!), there will NEVER be another!

This may sound like blasphemy to my God-fearing, Jesus-loving readers, but to those of you who are gifted with an abundance of melanin and are considered Black by the general public, YOU ARE AS GREAT AND IMPORTANT AS THE DEIFIED JESUS CHRIST!

Quick tidbit: The Bible, the GOOD BOOK, is not a literal interpretation of past events and simple morality instructions of. It is an  ASTROLOGICAL, METAPHYSICAL, SCIENTIFIC text detailing the inner workings of the Black Melanin-Dominant body/temple and it’s relationship between it and the cosmos.

“As above, so below.” Remember? We have to disregard the propaganda that has been pushed on us since Day 1.

We are not the CURSE of Ham!

We should be not obedient to our slave masters, seeking our riches in “heaven” after death.  (And no, slavery has not ended. It has only evolved into the “modern rat race.”)

The Bible was written by Ancient Africans THEMSELVES, in such a way that could not be detected by outsiders and intruders (Non-melanated individuals!) They foretold of a fall from grace that was upon us and is currently tragically playing out. They wrote in code through parables and tales to remind us of how we can retrieve our that GOD-self and our rightful position on this planet, through our BLACK-MELANATED temples.

This is OUR story, family. Truly I believe with all of my heart and might that it is. And Jesus is only one of many examples (in the Christian canon and not) that reminds us of how we can return to the GOD-self that is within US! 

Turning water into wine? What happens when you breath in oxygen to your lungs.

Helping a blind man see? What is the current state of Black Melanin-Dominant Man and Woman?

Dying on the cross, saving us from our sins? Sounds similar to shunning your flesh, your earthly, mundane desires to seek the God within yourself!

Trust me, there is many, many more interpretations.

Jacob’s ladder? How about the rising of the Kundalini  energy?

The seven seals mentioned in Revelations? Aren’t their SEVEN chakras, fam?

Let me stop. I can go on and on. I give special thanks to the Elders who were able to decode the knowledge bestowed upon us by the ancestors that I am sharing with you…Dr. Valentine, Bobby Hemmitt, Dr. Blair, and that list goes on and on as well. I am grateful to have came across this perspective. Although I’m forever being enlightened and learning everyday, I think this is THE TRUTH. It resonates with me to the infinite percentile.

Because of its resonance, I’ve ceased to give reverence to a reference that is referring to me. I have graduated from mere external worship and turned my attention inward to uplifting myself toward a God-like frequency.  I, we, can obtain the kingdom of Heaven right here on Earth once again if we stop looking outside of ourselves for the answers we seek.

We must begin look within ourselves INTO THE NOTHINGNESS we have been gifted with.

We have the DARK MATTER within us to reach our limitless potential.

We are the TRUE, REAL essence of the Creator.

 

Jesus may or may not have been real, but you most definitely are (AGAIN… if you’re not a robot reading this lol.)

And that should mean something.

 

Peace and Love to my melanated family,

The Melanin Man

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Food for Thought: An esoteric view of the word “Cook”

Cook

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:

cook:
verb
1. prepare (food, a dish, or a meal) by combining and heating the ingredients in various way.
2. alter dishonestly, falsify
noun
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*.

(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.
For the ORIGINAL PEOPLE ON THE PLANET, this was…is…and has always beenOUR DAILY DIET!
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.
Yet…
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 Esoteric Improtance of Our Hair

For some random reason this morning I was researching the esoteric meaning of gray hair for kicks and giggles. Yours truly has a hint of gray hair (LOL) and I’m barely 31 (SMH.) I’m pretty sure you all have heard that old wives’ tale that gray hair signifies wisdom. I wanted to see if there were any other information regarding the significance of gray hair that I hadn’t heard of before. Eventually I came across a post that not only touched on that a bit, but also the esoteric significance of hair in general.

Although the post seems geared to all sets of humanity, from the actual information that was presented, it seemed to be specifically geared toward Black Melanin-Dominant folk . Especially when it mentioned the idea hair is designed to be like antennas for absorbing energies of all sorts.

Now from recent conversations I’ve had along my spiritual journey, I’ve heard this type of knowledge before. So the idea of hair functioning as antennas wasn’t particularly shocking to me. But it didn’t really sink in until I read the following post. It broke down in detail, where a common individual would understand, the importance of our “hair” (or antennas) in regards to staying tuned into the energies of Nature and the universe as well as how it can enhance our spiritual growth.

Now, the majority of Black Melanin-Dominant peoples have hair that is wiry and spike-like with sharp ends, which arguably would be the most conducive to imitating the nature and function of an antenna (transmitting frequencies, or energies.) I know from time to time just from gently rubbing my beard I’ve accidentally poked my fingers, creating a small open wound.

And it would hurt too!

I do believe the ones who discovered this knowledge were people who definitely were melanin-rich,…Black Melanin-Dominant individuals!

Unfortunately, at some point in time those ancestors of ours were conquered and were forced to cut their hair, succumbing to lesser men who did not understand nor could comprehend (and to this day is still the case) its true importance. Thus, vanity and economic survival is the foundation of the relationship Black Melanin-Dominant folk have with their hair…in this reality.

Knowledge, true knowledge, is priceless. I can only imagine what this type of information could do for us. We’d honor and respect our hair in a totally different manner.

We wouldn’t want to put any type of deadly chemicals (or weave!!!) in our heads, my sistas! Nor would we be placing rubbing alcohol on our scalps after getting it cut (if we cut it all!!!) fellas!

I know some of my fellow brothers and sistas who make their ends meet with the MAN-ipulation of hair may not like this, but sometimes (if not most) the truth hurts.

That whole Samson and Delilah story takes on a WHOLE new meaning now.

Check out the post below, fam!

Peace and Love to my melanated family,

“The Spiritual Meaning of Hair” –from Waking Times

Deva Kaur Khalsa, 3ho on August 9, 2013

“Our hair fashions might be just a trend, but if we investigate, we may find that we have been depriving ourselves of one of the most valuable sources of energy for human vitality.”Yogi Bhajan

Consider the possibility that the hair on your head is there to do more than just look good. Man is the only creature who grows longer hair on his head as he grows into adulthood. Left uncut, your hair will grow to a particular length and then stop all by itself at the correct length for you. From a yogic perspective, hair is an amazing gift of nature that can actually help raise the Kundalini energy (creative life force), which increases vitality, intuition, and tranquility.

Cut Hair

Long ago people in many cultures didn’t cut their hair, because it was a part of who they were. There were no salons. Often, when people were conquered or enslaved, their hair was cut as a recognized sign of slavery. It was also understood that this would serve as punishment and decrease the power of those enslaved.

The bones in the forehead are porous and function to transmit light to the pineal gland, which affects brain activity, as well as thyroid and sexual hormones. Cutting bangs which cover the forehead impedes this process. When Genghis Khan conquered China, he considered the Chinese to be a very wise, intelligent people who would not allow themselves to be subjugated. He therefore required all women in the country to cut their hair and wear bangs, because he knew this would serve to keep them timid and more easily controlled.

As whole tribes or societies were conquered, cut hair became so prevalent that the importance of hair was lost after a few generations, and hairstyles and fashion grew to be the focus.
The science of hair was one of the first technologies given by Yogi Bhajan when he came to America.

“When the hair on your head is allowed to attain its full, mature length, then phosphorous, calcium, and vitamin D are all produced, and enter the lymphatic fluid, and eventually the spinal fluid through the two ducts on the top of the brain. This ionic change creates more efficient memory and leads to greater physical energy, improved stamina, and patience.”

Yogi Bhajan explained that if you choose to cut your hair, you not only lose this extra energy and nourishment, but your body must then provide a great amount of vital energy and nutrients to continually re-grow the missing hair.

In addition, hairs are the antennas that gather and channel the sun energy or prana to the frontal lobes, the part of the brain you use for meditation and visualization. These antennas act as conduits to bring you greater quantities of subtle, cosmic energy. It takes approximately three years from the last time your hair was cut for new antennas to form at the tips of the hair.

Kundalini Hair Care

In India, a Rishi is known as a wise one who coils his or her hair up on the crown of the head during the day to energize the brain cells, and then combs it down at night. A ‘rishi knot’ energizes your magnetic field (aura) and stimulates the pineal gland in the center of your brain.

“This activation of your pineal results in a secretion that is central to the development of higher intellectual functioning, as well as higher spiritual perception.” -Yogi Bhajan

During the day, the hair absorbs solar energy, but at night it absorbs lunar energy. Keeping the hair up during the day and down at night aids in this process. Braiding your hair at night will help your electromagnetic field balance out from the day.

Split Ends

Loose scattered hair can develop split ends. Instead of trimming them and losing your antennas, Yogi Bhajan recommends applying a small amount of almond oil to your hair overnight so that it can be absorbed before you wash it the next morning. Keeping your hair coiled on your crown and protected with a head covering during the day will help your antennas heal. If you have long hair, see if your experience is different when it is clean and coiled at your crown, or down and loose.

Wet Hair

One year after Winter Solstice, when Yogi Bhajan was sitting in our living room with wet hair, he explained that he was drying it before putting it up in order to avoid a headache. When you put your hair up wet, it will tend to shrink and tighten a bit and even break as it dries. A better idea is to occasionally take the time to sit in the sun and allow your clean, wet hair to dry naturally and absorb some extra vitamin D. Yogis recommend shampooing the hair every 72 hours (or more frequently if the scalp sweats a great deal). It can also be beneficial to wash your hair after being upset to help process emotions.

Wooden Comb

Yogis also recommend using a wooden comb or brush for combing your hair as it gives a lot of circulation and stimulation to the scalp, and the wood does not create static electricity, which causes a loss of the hair’s energy to the brain. You will find that, if you comb your hair and scalp front to back, back to front, and then to the right and left several times, it will refresh you, no matter how long your hair is. All the tiredness of your day will be gone. For women, it is said that using this technique to comb your hair twice a day can help maintain youth, a healthy menstrual cycle, and good eyesight.

If you are bald or balding, the lack of hair energy can be counteracted with more meditation. If you are finding some silver strands in your hair, be aware that the silver or white color increases the vitamins and energy flow to compensate for aging. For better brain health as you age, try to keep your hair as natural and healthy as you can.

Tagore’s Hair

Yogi Bhajan told us this story about hair many years ago at Women’s Camp in New Mexico: Recognize how beautiful and powerful your hair is—when you keep it, you live a life of fulfillment in this world. When Rabindranath Tagore, the great poet who found God within himself, tried to meet a friend on a steamer ship, the friend didn’t recognize him and so wrote him a letter. “We were on the same steamer, but I didn’t find you.” Tagore said, “I was there.” His friend said, “I understand you are now a God-realized man, and I would like to know what your first action was when you became aware of the Oneness in all.” Tagore said, “When I realized the Oneness of all, I threw my shaving kit into the ocean. I gave up my ego and surrendered to nature. I wanted to live in the form that my Creator has given me.”

When humans allow their hair to grow, they are welcoming the maturity, the responsibility of being fully-grown, and fully powerful. That is why you will find grace and calmness in a person with uncut hair from birth, if it is kept well. The Creator has a definite reason for giving you hair.

It is said that when you allow your hair to grow to its full length and coil it on the crown of the head, the sun energy, pranic life force, is drawn down the spine. To counteract that downward movement, the Kundalini life energy rises to create balance. In Yogi Bhajan’s words, “Your hair is not there by mistake. It has a definite purpose, which saints will discover and other men will laugh at.”

Black is Invalid (Part 2)- A Bittersweet Opportunity

bittersweet

From The Melanin Man:

It’s been about four months since the incident I went through in reference to my endeavors to sit for the Professional Engineering exam, which I discussed in detail in Having a Moment- Black is Not Valid (Part 1). Alot has happened in that time frame from a personal perspective. I had planned a followup even before I posted Part 1, wanting Part 2 posted no more than a week after Part 1. I had many, many premises and ideas I could have gone with (that would have been good!) just to have Part 2 posted within that time frame. I put it on the back-burner in lieu of other tasks (i.e. my memoir), and I totally forgotten about it.

But I’m glad I did.

Recent developments and experiences in my life have given Part 2 new life, and I feel it is the perfect time to post it.

If you remember, for those of you who have read Part 1, I was denied the opportunity to sit for the Professional Engineering (PE) license in Alabama, due to the “insufficient experience” I received through my employer, an small Black civil engineering consultant firm. I detailed my feelings and thoughts thoroughly on the fact that Blacks, no matter the career, must be validated and approved through the lens of white supremacy in some capacity before, recalling The Jeffersons theme song, “move on up!”

It seemed following that unfortunate experience I was done, so to speak. Not that I couldn’t continue working in the field, more than likely change employers, and get the remaining 18 months I needed to sit for the PE exam. Deep down, though, I didn’t want to play that game. I believed my previous work experience was, is, valid and should have been afforded the opportunity to take the exam, in spite of the fact I had no references of the Caucasian persuasion to give me the seal of approval to their fellow brethren who dominate the Board.

“Why must I be validated even though I fulfilled their requirements?” I asked myself.

Tough titty! It’s their system, their rules. Deal with it, my subconscious responded.

I was exploring the possibility of giving up civil engineering. It wasn’t just because of being to denied to take the exam either. In the last four years though, I never got any bite from other companies in my field to hire me when I would apply from time to time. The incident with the Board was just the straw that broke the camel’s back.

Maybe I wasn’t cut out for this engineering thing, I would think time to time. Plus, I knew I had more to offer besides practicing civil engineering. Undergoing my transformation, I realized that working in the civil engineering field was now only an option amongst the many skills/talents I had but neglected to develop in my adolescence (e.g. writing.)

But…

At the same time, I have a family to take of even if my wife (whose in the eight months of medical residency, thank goodness!) can support me and my daughters without financial assistance from me.

What if she has to stop working for whatever reason? WHOSE gonna have to pick up the slack???

My girls are getting older and smarter by the day, and I’m realizing they don’t need me like they used to as newborns and budding toddlers ( I’m boohooing inside!!!) Plus, for any man’s mental and spiritual stability, especially Black Melanin-Dominant men, it’s IMPERATIVE that he knows that he has the ability to take care of himself and family in a financial capacity. And at this current stage in my life, my degree and background in civil engineering is my most stable and feasible option to do just that.

I just wasn’t getting any bites from other companies who had the ability to pay me a living wage! It got to the point where I was entertaining the idea of truck driving to accomplish this. Then out of nowhere, the “perfect” opportunity, within my field no doubt, fell flat in my lap.

A recruiter came across an old resume of mine I had posted on her company’s website a couple years prior. She had matched it with a job opening for a large consultant firm  (albeit majority ran by those of the Caucasian, European flavor of course), in conjunction with the Georgia DOT, that offered everything that I wanted:

-an opportunity to work with the Georgia DOT located smack-dabbed in Downtown Atlanta, 

the opportunity to be a part of a roadway design team…

and last but not least…

…a paying salary!!! And a decent one at that! I threw my name in the hat, and needless to say, the firm and the DOT representative I interviewed were thoroughly impressed with me and the skills I brought to the table and…

…you know the rest. It is on a six-month to  hire contract, so I have to come correct to stay on a permanent basis.

Life is funny. As I kid from Mobile, Alabama, it was my ambition, my dream, to live and work in a city like Atlanta, building and designing highways and byways with/for the DOT. After everything I’ve been through, to almost succumb to the idea of giving up that dream, I making another step toward that reality. I still in shock.

And yet…

I’m a little disappointed. If any of you are familiar with the new me or have read What Sparked My Transformation series, as mentioned a moment ago, I am not the same as I once was in the past. Besides the trying task of dropping over 100 pounds, I have become whole within myself like never before.

I eat the foods that are natural and nutritious to my temple when necessary. I have become disengaged from the hoopla of this material paradigm, choosing to seek what is actually real and THE TRUTH!  And now more than ever I have an insatiable love for my Black Melanin-Dominant skin, and my Black Melanin-Dominant peoples, no matter their lot in this life…

which is why it breaks my heart to leave my employer and the only firm I’ve been associated with for the last seven years.

I’ve learned alot from the founder/my supervisor (aptly named Terry in my memoir), professionally and personally, during my association with his firm. I am indeed very grateful to him. I entered in the beginning stages of this budding black-owned business, and was excited with the potential it could reach. Long story short, (this part is mentioned in the Transformation series and my memoir, which hopefully will be published sometime next year) the firm hit some pretty big speed bumps and it has taken longer than expected to get back on its feet. I stayed attached to the firm, probably longer than I should have from a professional standpoint, on little to no pay, hoping that fortunes would turn back promising once more.

This is a Black civil engineering firm, one of the very few of its kind in this country I’m pretty sure. At times I waffled back in forth with leaving the firm, knowing I had a wife in medical school and two newborn daughters to care for. Yet at the same time, I wanted to fight through the fire with my supervisor Terry. I didn’t want to quit on him or the firm either. Unbelievably, my wife was supportive no matter what direction I chose to walk and I am truly thankful for her being understanding (I love you so much, babe!)

Finally, and unfortunately to some degree, some time after the Board’s decision, it occurred to me that the firm possibly may never reach its true potential. I began to think this in part that Terry began to lack a clear vision and plan for the firm, taking  projects on a whim to make ends meet without a certified guarantee that we’d get paid. The other reason is that the environment was/is of course currently constructed against true Black business advancement and sustainable success, especially in the STEM and construction fields. In my opinion it is a insult to be labelled a Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (DBE) or Minority Business Enterprise (MBE), to settle for the scraps from the larger white, Caucasian firms and contractors who basically have a monopoly on the system because they practically created it that way.

Damn, white supremacy.

But on a whole as a people, that’s what we  have resolved ourselves to accepting. And regardless if we owned a business or not, all in all, we’re still perpetuating a existence that is ABNORMAL to our TRUE NATURE. We have no voice, no unity, no true vision collectively as a people.  The majority are just doing what we have to do to survive. If we only knew our TRUE HISTORY, maybe, just maybe, things will change for the better. We’ll decide that this  current parasitic paradigm is not for us and we’ll seek to destroy it for good. And I believe at some point in the distant, or maybe near, future that will happen.

But I know I have to take care of my own personal affairs. Ultimately it is my responsibility to take care of my family at the end of the day. I wasn’t able to do that working for Terry, and like so many other of my ilk have said…

“I gotta to do what gotta do.”

But trust, I will continue to do my part to educate my Black brothers and sisters through my blog and other means necessary so one day our current reality can truly change. Besides, I don’t envision myself continuing in the engineering field exclusively too much longer; I am just taking advantage of an opportunity to fulfill this childhood dream of mine. I have bigger ideas and plans that are more beneficial to my newfound goal of freeing the physical, mental, and spiritual shackles from my people.

And if I was able to visualize myself at a young age becoming a civil engineer designing highways and byways, I’m pretty sure I can do the same with

…possibly owning a farmers market selling reasonably-priced healthy foods grown from my farm to the peoples I wish to help…

Or starting a publishing company that promotes authors and material who seek to enlighten the Black Melanin-Dominant masses…

Or…I have countless ideas. I’m just vetting a few of them.

I truly understand that dreams can come true if you set your MIND TO IT!

I DREAM OF A RETURN TRUE BLACK MELANIN-DOMINANT GLORY!!!

 

 

Let’s make it happen, fam!

 

Peace and Love to my melanated family,

Food for Thought: The Most Important Lesson I’ve Learned from Gardening (it should be obvious from the picture)

plants-sunlight-energy.jpg

From the Melanin Man:

 

I have fallen in love with gardening and harvesting my own food, even if I only have a enough for food for a couple of days (lol!) It is a liberating experience to know that you have the ability to grow your own food. I have learned many life lessons from gardening…

Like the fact that deer, and unfortunately the offspring of moths, need to eat good, clean food as well. 

The deer should be ever so happy I don’t own a shotgun and don’t eat meat anymore. Those damn cabbage worms should be equally grateful that I don’t subscribe to using pesticides and/or herbicides neither.

Yet the most important life lesson I have learned is can be considered common sense, borderline second-nature to all gardeners, but somewhat taken for granted by most of us common folk…

The importance of sunlight!

Duh, right? I know, I know. Nevertheless, please keep reading.

When I first embarked on starting my garden, I had a difficult time finding a plot of land that could receive a sufficient amount of sunlight to grow my crops. The house that we currently live in is heavily wooded. Luckily I was able to find a spot in the front yard near the street (smh lol!) From last spring to this spring and summer seasons, despite the inadequate amounts of sunlight, I have had varied degrees of success with growing and harvesting my crops, from green beans and black-eyed peas, to okra and some delicious kale. But when it has come to my watermelon patch and butternut squash/zucchini plants, I’ve mostly been shooting blanks.

I have not been able to grow one watermelon, whereas the very few butternut squash and zucchini crops I was able to produce, they were a bit undersized. I know was a little ambitious with these two crops, due to the fact that they need at least six to eight hours of consistent sunlight daily to produce properly. The entire garden itself may receive maybe four hours of consistent sunlight daily…at best!

I’ve noticed during my time of gardening the yellowing of the leaves on some of my crops, meaning a lack of water and/or lack of sunlight. I’ve also noticed a mildew fungal forming on my the leaves of my butternut squash plants in particular. After some research, I discovered the mildew fungal buildup was caused by high levels of humidity and, surprise surprise, the lack of sunlight!!

Everyone knows that sunlight is the most important ingredient to the production of crops, our food supply. But do we realize the same applies to the growth and development of HUE-man beings as well?

Unless you work in a occupation that requires you to work outdoors most of the time. But we shun those type of jobs, labeling them to “menial, demeaning, and beneath us.”

Our children get maybe an hour of outside time from P.E./recess (that’s if they haven’t been removed from the schedule already) or after school and on the weekends. That’s if they’re not too busy with homework or stuck in front of a TELL-LIES-VISION (or cellphone, tablet, etc.)  playing videos games and whatnot.

How much sunlight do the majority of people, particularly my Black Melanin-Dominant brothers and sistas, receive on a daily basis? In this day and age and paradigm, it’s safe to assume not that much. I can assure you it’s nowhere close to six to eight hours a day! I mean, do we even truly know how much sunlight we actually need daily?

That’s one thing animals in the wild don’t have to worry about, because they don’t have to maintain a certain lifestyle to feel comfortable. Our current Westernized lifestyles do not value the importance of sunlight whatsoever. And in my opinion, it explains the many various health ailments that hinder not only Black Melanin-Dominant people, but the world as a whole.

Contrary to popular belief, we are not that much different from plants. Think about it: Chlorophyll to plants is what melanin is to melanated individuals. In fact, chlorophyll is the melanin to plants.

Besides water, what else do plants really need to survive and thrive?

(**Sidenote: If you’re thinking fertilizer, realize that fertilizer and like-products are only nutrients (think elements on the Periodic Table) concocted in a lab or taken from an area that is rich in those nutrients. It is sold to consumers who  occupy land that is deficient in those nutrients. How is that possible, if at one point the majority of the soil on this planet was more than likely suitable to produce without supplementary means? MAN-ipulation perhaps?!)

Plants don’t need chicken or a hamburger to live. And just to get a little deep with you, nor do they need to eat fruits or vegetables either. But we’re a LONNGGGG way from that reality, ladies and gentlemen. A lot has to change in this environment for that paradigm to return.

 

Just something to think about, fam. Some food for thought.

 

Peace and Love to my melanated family,

“Moana” and the Disney feminist agenda

 

moana.jpeg

From the Melanin Man:

 

I have to admit it, I was a big sucker for Disney movies as a young child.

I bought into the happily ever after bullshit just like the majority of kids who are brainwashed by the machinations of Disney films. Unfortunately, there is no happily ever after in real life unless you decide to make it happen and put in the hard work. And even then, more likely than not, it’s not totally that way at the end of the day.

The more I have learned the last couple of years, especially about the “Disney propaganda”, the more madness I find myself wanting to censor my daughters from.

Which leads me to the movie Moana that I recently watched on Netflix. The last animated movie that I posted about, the infamous Trolls post, has surprisingly to me received a ton of feedback than I expected to receive. Of course the feedback is mostly negative, but people have their opinions, and so do I.

Such is life. To this day, I stand by my opinion of that movie 1000% and wholeheartedly believe that the movie is STILL not suitable for children.

But anyways, I’m not going that deep with Moana as I did with Trolls so keep your pitchforks in the closet for all who happen to come across this post. I’m not going to give a synopsis of the movie as I assume you have watched the movie by now. If not, check it out on Netflix or other subscribers who have it available. Or you can just read the Wikipedia synopsis (haha!)

Check this article out as well: How the Story of “Moana” and Maui Holds Up Against Cultural Truths

So here’s my take…

On the low,  this is a tale of the aboriginal beginnings of the world, by aboriginal people who were obviously Melanin-Dominant.

**Quick fact** The original natives and settlers of islands in the Pacific, from the Melanesia to the Polynesia,  resembled Black Africans of today. Obviously, it wasn’t in Disney’s best interest to tell that part of the story.

For a time it seemed that these aborigines respected the natural order of the Earth and the delicate balance of life, innately civilized.  Then the male wind and sea demigod Maui, (who can be perceived as a metaphor for current godlike status of the white, Caucasian male) steals the heart (or the natural resources of the Earth ) of Te Fiti (or Mother Earth)  to gift to humanity. To me, Maui represents the nature of the white male (not all but generally speaking) to steal and conquer, taking his artificial role to supply the world’s peoples its needs.

(Keep this thought in mind…)

The heroine lead Moana is tasked with restoring Mother Earth back to its natural, pure state. In my opinion, her success in achieving her task is mainly due to the position that women (specifically  Black Melanin-Dominant women) are the greatest HUE-man representation of Mother Earth.

In essence, Mother Earth will only return to its natural state once the Black Melanin-Dominant woman as a whole returns to their natural state as the preeminent woman!!

That sounds like a happy-ever-after story to me. But here’s where Disney screws it up.

99% of the viewers, which are mostly children, are not privy to the real story minus the animation and familiar plotline. Nor are they familiar with the faux man versus woman nonsense perpetuated in today’s society. Throughout the film, Moana battled with mainly male figures in her quest to return the heart of Te Fiti, from defying the orders of her chief father to sail beyond the reef to persuading a reluctant Maui to assist her. It seems that Disney is unwittingly portraying all men as a whole, and not specifically the white, Caucasian male  to be the enemy to all women and their goals (i.e. equality.)

Why would they anyway, since Disney is ran majorly by white males!!! Duhhhh!!!

The portrayal seems to mirror the popular point of view of feminism, which honestly is toxic to the natural man-woman dynamic where men and women work together and are  not in competition. And I’m just not saying this because I’m a male and I have a secret hate for women. I was born from a woman and raised by a whole heap of ’em. The love for women, particularly my Black women, I have is forever unconditional.  Plus, there are plenty of women who seem to share my sentiment that popular feminism largely benefits those females of the Caucasian flavor, using women of color when it suits them best.

Look, Disney has a documented history of promoting the perceived greatness of whiteness for over EIGHTY YEARS!! Hell, they have a website dedicated to Disney Princesses, from Snow White to Ariel and Belle, baby!! So it’s not that far-fetched to think that it’s in the Disney board’s best interest to promote feminism.

“It’s just children’s entertainment, idiot. Get over yourself and your little male ego!”

Hey, I got two daughters, who are Black Melanin-Dominant, to raise and look after. Due to my ignorance and naivete of this world prior to their birth, they’ve gotten hooked to this stuff. And due to their innocence, they can’t see the shenanigans.

That’s where daddy comes in to save their brains from the madness. And I’m no longer  ignorant of it! If you think this daddy is “crazy” and “out of his mind,” so be it.

Their my seed to protect!

Their my responsibility!

I’m just doing the best I know how.

 

Stay woke, fam! (haha!)
