“Moving Forward…”

(This is the finished version of this post. Ignore any previous notifications you may have received.)

From the Melanin Man:

It’s been awhile.

It feels GOOD to write a post again.

I haven’t had this long of a break ever since I started the blog. I needed it though. I was sensing within my spirit that a shift was coming, and it had little to do with the fact that I was moving into a new house (yay!)

These last three months have been busy and hectic for me. I tell ya’, moving into a new house is a job. I hate it and I hope I don’t do it for another ten to fifteen years, if that.

It was a time for transition, on the surface and below the surface if you catch my drift.

I’ve had some interesting experiences during this time that has caused me to have a major impact on this journey called life. I won’t delve into the details (because more than likely I will share in Part 2 of my book), but I will say that I am in totally different space mentally and spiritually.

(Sidenote: It’s long overdue for Part 1 to be released, but it will definitely be available to the public by the end of the 2018. Promise!)

I may get flogged for this but I don’t care. This is coming from my heart.

I am of the mind now that majority of those who are Black Melanin-Dominant and considered themselves a part of the Black collective were meant, rather pre-ordained, to endure a life of struggle. Don’t believe me? Ask yourself this question:

If you know that civilization was created by Blacks and to this day is still being maintained by Blacks thru willful ignorance by way of fictive, white-Caucasoid supremacy, who do you REALLY think holds the power in this reality?

You cannot be conquered unless you ALLOW YOURSELF TO BE.

At one point in history, there no such entity outside of the Black Man & Black Woman. We were the dominant species. We’d come to master the ways of humanity. But like the chaos beings that we are (because melanin, which is the primordial substance of the universe, is chaotic by nature), our collective spiritual selves wanted more. There was something greater that we sought to become.

Something that is more than being a mere human.

From the inception of my blog, I began to love and appreciate my Afrikan heritage. I sought to live a righteous life that was Afrikan-centered, based on philosophies created by my ancestors in every facet of life. Yet I have never stopped learning, searching, thirsting for knowledge that is not easily available to the uninitiated.

As a result, I embraced being Black in all of its essence.

Through research, as well as through my own personal experiences not only recently but the last 12 months, my path been altered. I’ve come to realize that my purpose here is not to simply live a good human life, even in a Afrikan-centered way. My purpose here on this plane of human existence is to elevate and liberate from humanity itself.

In the words of the courageous Bobby Hemmitt, to those who are initiated, “the matrix is all around you. The matrix is humanity itself. “

We are literally spiritual beings, ancient beings, having a human NIGHTMARE lol. And for our sake, the nightmare is an illusion . That’s why you should not get caught up in the madness.

Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will

Romans 12:2

The primary goal is to seek God. Yet God is within you, Black Man/Woman.

To live clean and healthy…

…to conduct yourself in a Afrocentric-manner…

…to claim wokeness and faux consciousness when it’s cliché is deemed NECESSARY by ill-advised moralistic men to attain such a goal. But unfortunately (well, maybe fortunately) piety and righteousness are not the keys that will unlock that door.

Those who are Black (melanin, the agent of chaos, the beginning and the end, THE ALPHA AND OMEGA)and accept it in mind and spirit, honest and pure of heart will enter the throne.

You are the diamond in the rough.

You are the “rose that rises from the asphalt.”

From an alchemist perspective, YOU ARE THE LEAD THAT TURNS TO GOLD!!!

On this realm, the adversities you will endure, people (whether good or bad) you will encounter, all the things that make you you should be used as a tools to attain the God-level that is the very essence of your soul.

Stop wasting your energy on entities (a.k.a. white folk, the powers that be, etc.) who at the end of the day have no power but that which you give them. Your energy, your life force, is too valuable give up freely to these illusions.

Don’t grieve for the lost, the decrepit, the wretched of our collective. Have compassion for your fellow Black brethren and sisters, but DO NOT get caught up in the game of saving Black folk. Only a man who wants to be saved can save himself. If it takes a couple more reincarnations for them to get it, so be it.

(Sidenote: Yes, I think reincarnation is real. Where do you think the term “having an old soul” comes from? I swear I’ve been called that too many times since in this lifetime. Maybe it took me a couple hundred reincarnations to figure this thing out. Who knows?!)

Just be the light, which is born from darkness.

Accept the darkness, the blackness, your melanin.

It’ll lead you back home.

Peace and Love,

The Melanin Man

P.S. You gotta get this book, The Opening of the Way: A Practical Guide to the Wisdom Teachings of Ancient Egypt by Isha Schwaller de Lubicz. Great read! It makes sense of what we should be doing on this realm.

Here is an excerpt:

Explanation is one thing, meditation another; both are necessary. So we shall let the heart speak, without concern for what men may say.

The Spirit “bloweth where it listeth,” and not where men desire.

Truth is that which is, not what men imagine.

The Destiny of the Earth is written in the Sun and Moon, and not in the science of men.

The heredity of the “person” is written in his liver, not in human records.

His destiny can be read in his eyes, his hands, his face, but these are to men a secret cipher.

His true “name” is the impulse which brought him to earth; only his appearance has a name among men.

The place which has drawn him down to human earth is his country of adoption.

If the throne of his heart is empty, then the end of life for him will have all the horror of endless exile.

But if his heart is the throne of his Immortal Self, then his true country is the place in Heaven whence he descended, and his place of exile is among men.

A Critical Analysis of the Holy Matrimony Quagmire for the Black Man and Black Woman

 

Image result for black marriage

 

From the Melanin Man:

How ironic I discuss this topic only a couple of days from my anniversary. But I feel the need to get this off my chest right now, so to hell with it.

*

I haven’t been married that long. Most would assume that I need more years under my belt to be qualified to speak on the topic of marriage, to spit out some worthwhile wisdom.

Well, I beg to differ.

In the four years that I’ve been “officially” married (not counting two years of courting and breaking up, making up sessions), I’ve learned a lifetime’s worth of wisdom regarding this pastime called marriage. And that wisdom has been supplemented with even more knowledge from speaking with older men and elders who have been married (and some cases, divorced!) longer than I’ve been married.

I have observed many things within the confines of marriage, but there are three in particular that stand out to me, such as:

     1.    Man and woman (the definition of a authentic marriage) tend to come into the situation with  unrealistic expectations of who and what their spouse SHOULD be to them. When I decided go through my personal transformation, my wife was supportive when it came to improving my physical health and losing weight, even though she did not like the method that I was going about it. It was major adjustment for her when I dropped meat from my diet, and she continues to this day to remind me how she misses that part of me.

Regarding my intellectually and spiritual growth, she has had major reservations. Giving up religion and traditional concept of God has not gone over well for her. She does not fully respect my newfound opinions on what Black life should be, the importance of melanin, how life and reality is not what it seems, etc. She is weary of the direction that I am going.

2.        In this Westernized version of marriage,  it is virtually impossible to have a relationship (intimate or non-intimate) with the opposite sex, other than your spouse. Surprise, surprise. This one is a given. But if know anything about the nature of man, it is not the most realistic to maintain. Recently in my life, I have came across women who have intrigued me, not necessarily sexually, but mentally and spiritually in ways that have been comparable, and in some cases, more than what I have received from my wife.

And you know the funny thing? I don’t feel once ounce of guilt.

3.         The imagery of a marriage in this society matters a little too much these days. We know marriage will not be “perfect” from any stretch of the imagination. But that doesn’t stop married folk from putting on a front in the midst of family and friends. Everyone wants to play Keep Up With the Jones. Every married couple on some level seeks to strive for that white picket fence, “American Dream” fantasy. Competition, a sacred American tradition, is the sacred underlying factor in all of this.

I’ve never been the competitive type either. At this juncture in my life, I don’t give two flying you-know-whats about what people think about me. Now, my wife on the other hand…

She’s not materialistic whatsoever, but  she does have a very strong tendency to care about what others think about her, and that extends into the family unit. That appears to be a common trait amongst Westernized, Americanized women, no matter ethnicity.

*

This Westernized, religified version of marriage serves as a microcosm to the current reality that dominates the scene, a restrictive condition to the true nature and potential of the archetypal Black Man and Black Woman.

As I stated in a post concerning the drawbacks of compromising, in reference to individual growth, when both spouses have totally different mindsets it creates problems.  I said it once, I said it twice, and I’ll say it again: MEN CREATE THE REALITY, WOMEN MAINTAIN IT! In my case, I have chosen a mindset that embraces my Black nature, and I desire to create the reality based off of it. My wife, like the majority of our Black women in this paradigm, has the mindset of what I explained in number 3 above (and here.)  And there is the dilemma.

I want nothing to do with that foolishness. It goes against everything that I’m trying to be as a Black Man who is becoming more aware by the millisecond. The sad part about it is that I truly and dearly love my wife, and there is potential in her to cross over into the dark side.

But love is NOT enough in this war for Black liberation.

Despite what has been preached by the state and its sheep, love and marriage are not synonymous with each other. Now, I understand why arranged marriages were prevalent and still occur to this day, basically because it’s not based off the superficiality of love we’ve been duped into practicing these days (Gotta check out “The Science of Love” by John Baines, folks!) Marriage SHOULD be considered a partnership, a business arrangement to achieve a common goal. In the case of liberation for the Black Man and Black Woman and a return back to their archetypal selves, marriage SHOULD be used as a weapon to achieve that goal.

For any other reason, we’re just playing a GAME, like any other card game, board game, or video game we’ve past the time with. That’s what the powers-that-be (or the powers-that-wanna-be) have turned it into, a profitable one on so many levels. And just like any game you play, you have boundaries, rules and regulations you have to abide by.

“NO CHEATING ON THE TEST.”

“NO CHEATING ON YOUR TAXES.”

“NO CHEATING ON YOUR SPOUSE.”

Aha!

(Side note 1: I can do a post strictly on the word “cheat”, and how the powers-that-wanna-be use the label to keep people in check. I just might.)

I always wondered when it came to the topic of having affairs, mistresses, side chicks or side dudes, the accused would be cursed with that label.

 

 

Courtesy of Google  :

cheat

v.

1. act dishonestly or unfairly in order to gain an advantage especially in a game or examination.

2. avoid (something undesirable) by luck or skill.

n.

1. a person who behaves dishonestly in order to gain an advantage.

 

 

A couple of questions:

1.     If you told your spouse upfront you  were having feelings or thoughts for another man/woman without physically acting on it, would you still be a “cheater?” 

The act has already been birthed in your mind, so the act has already occurred.  That’s what matters anyway…mind OVER matter, baby!

2.    Are you really cursed with sin because you had feelings for another man/woman besides your spouse?

(I’m telling you, you need to check out that book.)

Take a look at nature amongst animals. How many monogamous relationships do you find in the animal kingdom? “But man is greater than animal,” you say. “He should know better than.” Is that your ego talking or are you’re just  repeating what you’ve been told?

I can say with all honesty that the animal kingdom has an advantage. A tiger knows what it is. An eagle knows what it is. A bear knows what it is.

Do you know what you are, Black Man and Black Woman?

Once upon a time long ago, when Black folk dominated the world stage,  polygamy was not a side-eye taboo. It was our culture. A few countries today still practice the tradition, but it’s not prevalent as it used to be. And definitely not in the regions of the earth that it should be in this day and age.

Every wonder why polygamy is illegal and shunned in the West (the dominant power at the moment?) IGNORE the propaganda, it just so happens the cream-of-the-crop Black Men and Women also reside in the West. Even though the majority of us are the walking dead, our genes are still  second-to-none on the planet. This is due in part to the times of “slavery”, with the mixing of blood between the different captive African tribes.

When the time comes when we WAKE UP (its happening as we speak in bits and pieces), and we practice that culture and walk out our destiny…

Oh…boy.

Image result for black man and woman art

 

The Black Man, who is connected to his archetypal self and knows HIS-story, has the capability to love more than one woman.  That same Black Man will not fool around with any woman outside of the one he already has if they are not of the same frequency, and if it does not perpetuate a reality of Black empowerment and unity that can benefit ALL PARTIES INVOLVED.

The Black Woman, who is connected to her archetypal self and knows her culture, understands and overstands that her worth is NOT determined by the ability to have and KEEP her man. The Black Woman knows her ability to nurture the spark of that man (his seed, which, in the physical form translates to children, and the mental and spiritual form translates to that reality mentioned previously) is of the upmost importance.

*

In this paradigm, the state has used marriage in its limited form as a tool to keep not only Black folk, but the masses in general, docile, under control, and for accounting purposes. They have certainly made marriage an institution that is CONSUMERISTIC BY NATURE and only benefits those who wish to keep and maintain power.

What is one of the top reasons for divorce (which is another lucrative byproduct from marriage if and when it dissolves, concocted by the state?)

Finances.

A consumeristic marriage is a prosperous marriage in this reality.

Remember when I said marriage is only a “microcosm” on what occurs on the grand scale?

Can you imagine a marital union structure that doesn’t have to depend on fiat money to be successful? One where there was less competition and more cooperation and sharing amongst one another?

Less capitalistic and more collective?

LESS MONOGOMOUS AND MORE POLYGAMOUS???

Our husbands and wives would stop looking at each other as their property, and more like unique beings in the human form. 

(Side note 2: You apply this thinking in religion, it’s funny how the popular religions of today are styled in monotheism, versus polytheism that was prominent back in the day. Just saying…)

I can go on and on about this, and there will probably be more posts to follow concerning this matter. But I think I’ve said enough to digest for a while on this one.

What I’ve said I don’t say out of spite or misery.  Because besides the occasional argument me and my wife may have or the observations I listed previously, I’m pretty satisfied with my marriage. We have a good situation going on, according the benchmark set by the current paradigm.

I’m just calling it like I see it. I seek  liberation in and around my life on every level; the status quo doesn’t bother her that much. It is only so far we can go before one of us will have to submit and compromise to keep this ball rolling.

Hopefully it’s not muah. But that’s why we play the game, so to speak.

SMH…that’s a crying shame.

An Analysis: Black and Introverted in a White Man’s World

 

Image result for black and white world

 

From the Melanin Man:

For the longest, I’ve considered myself a staunch introvert.

I’m not too big on crowds. I am more comfortable with one-on-one interactions instead of group dialogues. I enjoy my spending time with myself, by myself, and away from everyone else.

But was that by nature, or by design?

From what I recall, prior to my parents’ separation when I was only 10, I was more talkative, more outgoing, more vibrant, more confident as a young kid than I was in my later teens, and quite honestly, well into college and young adult age. Basically, I was more on the extroverted side.

With dad leaving and not being as involved as he once had been before the split, I started to be more shy and timid, afraid to speak up and embarrassed to speak out…

…to defend myself…

…to express my opinions and thoughts, OR…

even introducing myself to the ladies lol smh.

In this parasitic white-European society, it is crucial for the Black mother and the Black father  to stay involved in the development of their offspring throughout their adolescent years.

If not, well, we know what the consequences are, from others we know or through our own personal experiences.

After dad left the scene, I was easy pickings.

I may have dodged the trappings of  teen pregnancy, the drug game, gang life, jail or even an early death, but I became withdrawn nevertheless.  Going thru an educational system (the most essential tool used by our adversary) that does everything in its power to subdue the unique individuality of the Black child can turn the greatest of our children to reclusive  and isolated beings.

Through means such as…

…using medical diagnoses like ADD/ADHD (yeah, they tried to put that label on me. Thank you mom for fighting that!) to keep the Black child medicated and sedated…

…having primarily white-European female teachers who ADVERTANTLY adhere to upholding an illusionary white supremacy doctrine and know nothing about raising or caring for the welfare of Black children whatsoever…

…being influenced by their fellow Black peers and loved ones, who are brainwashed themselves through programming, with bullying and peer pressure to conform and fall in line…

…parents who are, figuratively speaking, deaf, dumbed-down, and blind that they have no clue how to actually get the best out of their offspring but to go by the tried and true method…

..this society has perfected the art of repressing and oppressing the natural greatness and genius of the Black child!!

Granted, despite all of that, we have managed to find major success  in every field and arena imaginable, in spite of our personal circumstances (either two-parent, one-parent, no parent home, etc.)  Yet that success is still based off the rules and framework of a white-European minded archetype that goes against our true nature as highly-melanated beings.

We can’t be who (and what) we truly are. Or rather, we are not ALLOWED to be.

That would obliterate the delusion that is white supremacy.

That’s why it is a must, a requirement actually, right now in this day and age that the Black mothers and fathers of today’s Black youth are WOKE and CONSCIOUS of, first and foremost, themselves and their culture,  as well as the paradigm we are currently TRAPPED in.

With THIRD EYE (first eye) Black parents teaching their offspring, the demise of this destructive white-Eurocentric paradigm will surely be achieved.

I acknowledge that my dad’s departure from the family unit took a toll on my physical, mental, and physical health, yet I refuse to place the blame entirely on his shortcomings. When I think about it from a spiritual perspective, my decision to draw within after my dad’s absence was a defense mechanism to shield me from a world that is not keen on Black pride or excellence in any shape form or fashion. From my recollection, Dad, may he rest his soul  in peace and power, was not aware or awaken to the true machinations of this paradigm. I truly believed that if he had been more involved in my adolescent years, at best, he would have only taught me simply how to survive (see: perpetuate) the current paradigm, not to DEPART from it and to DESTROY it.

Not to say that I didn’t need or want my dad during that time in life, but sometimes I ask myself: the man I am striving to be, was I better off?

(If it seems like I’m placing a lot of responsibility on Black men, refer to this post for perspective. Also, there will be second part to that post that is specifically geared toward the men.)

I see my dilemma as a microcosm of the Black collective in general today, introverted and withdrawn. Only until adulthood through my own extenuating circumstances did I began to fully embrace my Blackness, my melanated self, and broadcast it for the world to see, no matter the circumstances.

The result? The Melanin Man.

When will we, Black Man and Black Women, start to become more extroverted as a collective like we once were not too long ago?

 

Sooner or later, our true nature, when we embrace it, will come to the surface eventually!

As the saying goes…as above, so below! Or more aptly put for this post…as below, So ABOVE!

 

Stay Black and embrace that melanin, family!

 

Peace and Love to my melanated family,

The Melanin Man

 

 

 

 

 

 

BLACKMAN-BLACKWOMAN Series: The Black Woman is the Protector of the Black Man

Image result for black queen chess

 

 

From the Melanin Man:

 

Caution: Hey fellas, I’m not trying to get brownie points with the ladies here. I’m simply expressing my true feelings on these matters. So don’t feel slighted…

 

I’m a pretty decent player of chess. I haven’t played in years, so I have to dust off my skills so I won’t embarrass myself the next time (?) I do play the game. But I have to say, chess is the best and YES, overused analogies to the game (or illusion?) of life.

Most of us who are familiar and practitioners of the game of chess will admit that the Queen is the most powerful and dynamic piece on the board. That is a gimmee. Just as the King, the Queen can move north-south, east-west, and diagonally. The difference is that the Queen can move as many spaces at a given turn whereas the King can only move one space at a time. And just like the Castle, Knight, Bishop, and Pawns, her duty is to protect her King.

Just about every chess player will tell you that the Queen is the ultimate x-factor within the game. That same thought applies also in the game of Life.

On the surface it appears that the Black Woman is low on the totem pole in terms of respect and value on the social, political, biological, basically in all facets of the paradigm. In actuality, the Black Woman is THE FOUNDATION AND BASIS of that totem pole, the supreme being on the planet only matched by her male counterpart the Black Man. Yet if us Black men were to be truly honest with ourselves, the Black Woman is the strongest being between the two of us.

The belief that “women are the weakest species” is a half-truth; from a physical perspective that may be the case. But on the spiritual/metaphysical level they have their male counterparts beat by a country mile, because primarily the Black Woman has the stronger connection to Nature between the two.

In the BLACKMAN-BLACKWOMAN Relationship Part 1 and Part 2, I explained what the true dynamics should look like between the Black Man and Black Woman: Black men are to create new realities/solve the problems/ provide new visions, Black women are to nurture/foster/cultivate those new realties through conducive environments and vibrant offspring. Basically the Black Man is the agent of change (acid, the catalyst), and the Black woman is the securer (base, the foundation) of that change and how it will be manifested.

 

(Side note 1: It’s popular opinion that women, on whole, need to feel security from the man. Maybe in the physical realm, through finances, physicality, etc. When it comes to what truly matters in the long run, the man is really in need of the woman’s security  to realize his vision.)

(Side note 2: A analogy within an analogy, in Kemetstry (Chemistry), when an acid is mixed with base solution, the acid transforms the base into a new substance. After the transformation is complete, the acid is dissolved and only the new substance remains. Maybe there is a correlation to why women, particularly married women, commonly outlive their husbands. Must be Nature, huh?!)

 

Yet we place too much emphasis on the decrepitude state that a good number of our Black men find themselves in. We should realize that when the Queen, the Black Queen,  is apprehended in chess, the game is effectively over (unless you are the very, very few who’s skilled enough to hold your own without the Black Queen, which is extremely hard when your opponent has their white Queen still in play.) The Black Man (King) does not have a fighting chance to thrive or even survive when his Black Woman (Queen) has been captured and co-opted by his white rival(s). His vision cannot be realized nor actualized when his woman has been seized and brainwashed with a European mindset that is totally detrimental to the essence of the Black Woman and subsequently, the Black Man.

As a tool used  by her white King and a false ally of the white Queen, the Black Woman herself is transformed into a change agent (a male imitation) and dispatched to the Black man to compete with and eventually force his surrender to assimilate into the Eurocentric, Westernized way. Unfortunately and on most occasions inadvertently, that parasitic mindset is passed down to their offspring.

Game. Set. Match.

I love the fact that my sistas are achieving in every profession imaginable, from S.T.E.M. based professions to law and politics to entrepreneurship. Y’all want the good life. Plus, a good number of y’all these days are the breadwinners and have to hold the fort down for your families. These examples only exemplify the brilliance and ingenuity that y’all possess, and its BEAUTIFUL baby!

But ask yourself the following questions, ladies:

Whose world are you supporting and keeping alive by participating within its machinations?

Is it a world envisioned by your true equal, the Black Man?

Does it take advantage of ALL of your gifts and talents that you’re aware and unaware of?

Is that melanin of yours really being put to the test?

Don’t get me wrong, sistas, the Black Man overall is missing in action. We lost our spiritual connection somewhere along the way and, thus, our vision to return to Blackness. Minus the few Black men who have continued to fight the good fight, we’ve waved the “white flag”, unchallenging and incorporating into white supremacy. Consequently, we lost the trust of our women.

So we have our work cut out for us.

But trust, the tide will turn and we will find our way home once again, my Queens and Goddesses!

(Don’t worry brothers! There’s a post coming for you concerning what the vision should look like in the near future. )

 

I believe this to be truth that can be taken to the bank any day of the week: No woman on EARTH can compare  nor equal the magnificence and splendor of the Black Woman!

 

I’m obviously prejudice in that regard ( and many, many other regards), and that’s OK.

She birthed me, she nurtured me, she raised me, she loved me…

…and she is the TRUE PROTECTOR, THE GATEKEEPTRESS, OF MY (OUR) REALITY!

 

I love you, Black Woman. The image below says it all!

a repost: The Only Worthwhile Investment We Ever Make

Waking Times Article originally posted on Waking Times (click link for original)

 

By: RJ Spina

We are all perpetually bombarded with an endless array of investment opportunities, be it an investment of our attention, energy, money, skill, sweat, emotions, knowledge, etc. But what if there was only ONE investment that perpetually yields an everlasting, incalculable, limitless dividend? 

Would that not obviously and always be the best investment, regardless of circumstances or context? But what if we simply can’t distinguish this ultimate investment opportunity from all the rest? It would be impossible to know if we have chosen this perfect investment unless every possible observed investment opportunity came with OUR direct knowingness that the speculative, transient, alluring concept of potential profits and mitigated losses were temporary and provided zero enduring benefits whatsoever.

That kind of awareness would be priceless beyond all measure. 

What if the Mind/Ego/Identity that makes, weighs and ultimately decides which investment to make was a SHADOW, a transitory illusion in and of itself? Would this knowingness not shed total illumination on the entirety of the investment playing field? 

Perhaps this transitory ‘I’, our physical existence and our outer personality, ONLY cares about preserving ITSELF because it is INCAPABLE of recognizing nor understanding what is ETERNAL? Maybe the ego/mind/identity, which receives, processes and interprets energy from the limited sensory realm only, simply cannot decipher nor recognize what ‘actually is?”

Is it possible that our ego/mind/identity construct, a flight or fight based program utilizing the five physical senses interpreted by the finite Human Mind, which are all transitory themselves, prevents us from ever touching our eternal WISDOM, our Sentience, heretofore making it impossible to ever recognize and make the best and ONLY eternal investment? 

Is this why we keep repeating physical incarnations with individual and societal empires rising and falling again and again with no real spiritual evolution unfolding? Is it the perpetual and feckless chasing of sensory pleasures, the fear based avoidance of pain and the illusion of security actually yielding nothing but repetition creating the experience of time?

Could all this be because we keep our Consciousness and therefore our opportunities and decisions confined to those that ONLY perpetuate the existence of our transitory ego/mind/identity and its sensory realm domain? 

If so, where are we to go from here? How are we to locate and subsequently spend our resources on THE single investment opportunity that always yields the greatest and ONLY true ROI? And does this supreme investment opportunity even exist? 

It does…

What is it the only thing that endures? Certainly not your mind or body. Certainly not your physical possessions. Certainly not your beliefs, concepts or your expectations. What is it that OBSERVES all of that phenomena, lifetime after lifetime? 

The Immortal You. Your Consciousness.

Maybe everyone should invest in the ONLY thing that endures, this Immortal YOU. The Awareness itself. Your Sentience. Your timeless, immortal Consciousness. 

When the body and mind dies, the REAL YOU does not and cannot ever die. The REAL YOU, the WITNESS to every thought, feeling, action and experience your body and mind ever has simply endures.

But am I not my thoughts, feelings and experiences? No. How can one be the witness and the victim/perpetrator of the thought at the same time? This WITNESS (Soul) is on a perpetual expansion investment strategy with no endpoint, ever, and your SOUL is the ONLY thing that endures so why not go all in on the only thing that is REAL? Why not cut out the middleman, your transient, fake identity and all its desires, fears, expectations and beliefs, and invest directly in the REAL YOU?

Afraid of what you will lose? The prison of your ego/mind and your suffering is what will be lost forever. This ‘You’ who has the fear of loss doesn’t really exist and IT (your ego/mind) knows its time is running out. This illusionary, transitory identity who owns nothing, ever, has nothing except DOMINION over your immortal consciousness. This entity/identity, the ego/mind, must have your attention to even exist.

Have you deluded yourself into ‘thinking’ the outside world will change by analyzing it?

There’s an investment strategy that will yield only more analysis. And then more. And more. Shed yourself of that investment strategy now. Get out of it once and for all. Stop leaking all of your power, wisdom and courage on an illusion. 

If you cannot figure out how to invest in the REAL YOU, your experience in this life will be a perpetual struggle. If your commitment to your TRUE SELF is not followed up with the expenditure of tangible and intangible resources you have not made a commitment at all. One does not test drive spiritual evolution. It isn’t something to dabble in like the stock market, a new concept or so-called knowledge.

It requires skin in the game, so to speak, and you are already incarnate so your SOUL has everything to gain (Wisdom, Love and Power) and absolutely nothing to lose except its own self-imposed ignorance, greed and attachments. Everything we identify with prevents us from experiencing true freedom and achieving cosmic consciousness. All the concepts, beliefs and expectations you have invested in yield only more concepts, beliefs and expectations. More prisons for the Mind. More mental constructs. More Suffering. More problems. Grander Delusions. 

Invest in the ONE true investment opportunity directly, your Consciousness. The greatest technology that ever was, is, or will be is our developing SENTIENCE and it’s our ego/mind (desires and fears) and its preoccupation with its own survival that prevents us from this direct investment. Let’s divest ourselves of our transitory portfolio of short term investments; our expectations, our beliefs, our concepts, so-called knowledge and our identity. These investments only serve the ‘who’ and the ‘what’ that does not endure. Do not invest in striving towards acquiring more information or learning how to become capable of some skill but rather invest in the expanding of your awareness which deepens our eternal wisdom and enhances our power to act with compassion and courage.

When we pursue the desires, and avoid the fears of the outer personality, we are utilizing what appears to be our free will in a most inefficient manner. We are living perpetually in the past. Your identity is transient and so is its sensory realm experience and pursuits. These desires and fears are not worthwhile investments. The identity/mind/ego/thought is simply a conglomerate of past impressions from the sensory realm. Mimicry of the past. Knowledge itself is really justified belief; a recollection of the past, an imitation which simply leads to vanity and identity reinforcement. Bad investments across the board. Sell! 

Anything acquired via the sensory realm, the realm of illusion, is not a real investment. Instead, invest in the ONLY thing that ENDURES. In the only thing that IS. The only thing that REMAINS. The only thing that is REAL. The IMMORTAL YOU. Your CONSCIOUSNESS. All the books, articles, blogs and videos in the totality of all possible existence can never illicit the direct experience and knowingness of what a LIFE actually is. The very majesty, awe, vitality and divine intelligence that courses through us all in perpetuity. When does the investment of energy, in all its tangible and intangible forms, towards any object (goods, thoughts, concepts, beliefs) within the sensory realm do anything other than temporarily satiate a desire or momentarily quell a fear produced and experienced by our Mind/Ego/Identity? Is this not an investment strategy that should be avoided at all costs since it yields nothing except for that which does not endure? It’s not bad investment strategy, it’s more akin to insanity. 

If one has no direct experience of the TRUE SELF, then one can never choose the right investment. Is this why ‘civilized’ society is perpetually inundated with stimulus? Phenomena, by definition, is that which comes and goes and therefore an illusion. All poor investments then. Entertainment, technology, philosophy, information, beliefs, concepts, physical goods, experiences, ideologies, so called ‘knowledge’, spirituality, all sensory realm phenomena… What of this endures? It’s all very Human.

Does all of this not serve to keep us from our TRUE SELF and cosmic consciousness?

Then HOW do we invest in the one thing that endures, that is real, that perpetually yields the flowering of love, wisdom and power? 

Silence THAT which was born/produces/feeds on a need for stimulus in order to exist. Your MIND. Start there. We cannot deeply invest until we do so first. Fall in love with your own inner silence. It’s time to put the toys away. They may very well be taken from us anyway. Now we can begin investing in the limitless inner expansion of the only thing that endures…The REAL YOU. Awareness. Your SENTIENCE. Cosmic Consciousness. 

Meet me within that place. I remain in all eternity for you there…

Having a Moment: The Black Panther and breaking away from decoding/analyzing the movies of our enemies

 

 

From The Melanin Man:

Disclaimer: This is not a spoiler alert. There will be no DECODING/ANALYZING conducted on this post. I refuse to waste precious energy on decoding such tomfoolery.

(For those of you who wish to read that, click here, here, here, here and here. And here. AND here. There brothers and sisters of mine have already done a beautiful job of that.)

Reluctantly this morning I accompanied my wife to watch probably (let’s be honest, it is) the most hyped Black movie of all-time Black Panther. Previously I told myself I wasn’t going to rush and watch the movie, in part due to the obscene amount of hype it has received thus far. The other reason was because I felt it was not worth the price of admission.

And of course I was right. And why do I feel this way, you ask?

I certain beyond a shadow of a doubt that I don’t need to be entertained like I’m a child (why do we feel the need to still be entertained, fam? why are we STILL exhibiting childlike behavior?)  Maybe I’m in a different space mentally and spiritually right now. Maybe I’ve separated myself from the pack to the point that simple pleasures such as observing Black-African cultural symbolism in a positive light on a stupid 2-D screen does not even move me anymore.

Leave it to Disney (yuck!) to get us to feel good about being Black!

I’m through with all of the faux symbolism and feel-good stories we see in fantasy TV-land that we cannot seem to figure out as people to actualize in our REAL LIVES.

Sometimes I wonder when that time will come when we will cease to decode and analyze the foolishness that is thrown to us by the powers-that-be and begin to apply that knowledge in reality. For those of us who are NOT caught up in that entertainment mentality, how many more movies do we have to study and breakdown before we get the picture and make the changes that we need to change?

I’m not excluded from that question. I’m holding myself accountable as well.

Do we really get what’s going on? Or are we feeling special because we know a little something something?

Now don’t get me wrong, for the majority of our people who are literally SPIRITUALLY DEAD there is obviously a need to do such a thing.  But I’ve realized awhile ago that a individual’s return to consciousness (whether they’re  melanin-rich or not) should be left to them and them only. At some point, for the few of us who are privy to the madness, we may have to shun DEAD WEIGHT until it decides to LIVE AGAIN, so we can do real work.

I mean, there is no way The Black Panther should be the cultural phenomenon  that it is amongst our people. A superhero movie? REALLY?!

There may be one truth that I’ve learned from the movie (or rather reinforced since I’ve been feeling this way for a awhile now) and the hoopla that surrounds it, and that is this:

The greatest trick ever pulled by an oppressor to the oppressed is to have them think they’re oppressed in the first place. “

Once you know who you are and where you come from, you cease to be a victim no matter the circumstances.

Learn your history, fam. Preferably through a book performed through intense research and scholarship (don’t get stuck on white-man validation, either) and not some damn fantasy flick.

 

FUCK BLACK PANTHER! There, I said it.

 

 

 

Peace and Love to my melanated family,

The Melanin Man

The Mandela Effect, and Memory

A new internet meme, related to confabulation, is known as the Mandela Effect. This is a situation where a number of people have memories that are different from available evidence. The term was coined by Fiona Broome, who says she, and other people, remember Nelson Mandela dying in the 1980s, rather than in 2013.

She argues that common memories which appear mistaken could be explained by the existence of parallel universes that are able to interact with each other. A common thread of discussion regarding this “effect” is misremembering the Berenstain Bears being spelled as, “Berenstein Bears.”

The “Mandela Effect” is named after South African anti-apartheid revolutionary Nelson Mandela, who became a topic of interest in the year 2010 by people noticing with surprise that he was alive at that time–since many people remembered him having died while incarcerated.

Observations of dead people alive again are just one of many types of Mandela Effects, with other notable examples including changes to song lyrics, movie dialogue, movie scenes, physical geography, physiological anatomy, and product names.

The Mandela Effect is one of those things most people won’t believe in until it happens to them. Like falling in love or going through heartbreak, the Mandela Effect is something you have to experience in order to fully embrace.

And even then, it often takes more than one or two experiences to break through the resistance most of us have to accepting the existence of something that fundamentally challenges our unspoken foundational assumption that facts and historical events don’t change.

When we encounter something indicating evidence that in fact, history has changed–it feels shocking to discover some of the lines have been canceled and washed out! We seem to be approaching ‘tipping point’ where it’s getting harder for scoffers to say there’s no such thing as the Mandela Effect / reality shifts / alternate histories.

Some scoffers have leapt to the conclusion that Mandela Effect experiencers who are noticing long- familiar words in movies, TV shows, books, and products are most likely suddenly sharing ‘false memories,’ due to the fact that human memories are not fully reliable.

When we consider the matter of “confabulation” and “false recollections” at this dawning of the new Quantum Age, we see that we may eventually call such things “alternate recollections,” in recognition of awareness of the fact that we know that each and every one of us exists in a superimposed state, with access to many possible alternate histories, presents, and futures.

The idea that the many worlds of quantum physics might be one and the same as the multiverse has been proposed by such esteemed physicists as Dr Yasunori Nomura and Dr Raphael Bousso of UC Berkeley, and increasing numbers of scientists are feeling optimistic that we might yet find evidence that we indeed live in a multiverse.

Matrix Simulation

The whole idea that we are living in a simulation (which is another explanation for the Mandela effect) has been becoming mainstream. A Bank of America Merrill Lynch report from September suggested that there was a 20 percent to 50 percent chance we are living in a simulated virtual world.

Many people in Silicon Valley have become obsessed with the simulation hypothesis, the argument that what we experience as reality is in fact fabricated in a computer. This idea has gained traction in recent years with the advancement of artificial intelligence (AI) technologies.

“If you assume any rate of improvement at all, then games will become indistinguishable from reality.” – Elon Musk

Earlier this year, Elon Musk said that there’s “a billion to one chance we’re living in base reality,” suggesting that the billionaire thinks the odds are that we are living in a computer simulation. He argues that some technology is becoming indistinguishable from real life.

READ: Books by Dr. Richard Alan Miller

Timelines – There are no multiple time lines being created when we choose one choice over another. Scientists have been discussing the possibility of alternate timelines running simultaneously with the one we currently experience. Some have even suggested that when we choose one option over another, we have left multiple timelines in action that are running on all the other choices we could have made.

The known universe is both frugal and precise in its application. It appears to use basic structures in multiple applications in order to create itself. As a result we find basic geometry (such as tetrahedron, the circle, the square, the triangle, etc.), as the breakdown components of the structures of life.

The choices we make in everyday life is a simple matter of going into the field of all possibilities, which exists in wave form only, and collapsing our choice into particle form… thus adding to the time line we are experiencing now.

All the choices that we collapse from wave to particle remain as an ongoing record hence the formation of what we refer to as Akashic records. Our future choices or time line, personal and collective, is being formed by the sheer volume of the energy generated out of our previous and current choices.

We collectively confirm our physical reality (the furniture, the trees, our stuff of everyday life) on an ongoing basis, so it continues to exist in time with us based on a principle of mass.

If we personally and/or collectively (all inclusive in the greater cosmic sense) agree that any part of this reality taken by military dark ops suggests that many attempts to create alternate timelines has been undertaken but have not been successful.

These attempts can only fail as the full-on energetic mass required to propel a timeline forward is unattainable without all sentient beings here on Earth participating.

Here is the spoiler alert. Because we have free will we can make choices outside of all the mind control attempts. This is why those who think they have control struggle so hard to limit our choices as this is the only way that they can ensure future outcomes of their own design. It creates a major interference pattern when we individually or collectively collapse the wave form of all possibilities into a reality other than the one they have chosen for us.

This whole discussion around multiple time lines created out of the
no longer serves us and we discontinue feeding it any further energy (thought) it diminishes in kinetic mass and becomes a component of static information.

An example of this is our past life history, the events remain as a record of collapsed waves to particles in time but can only be reactivated in the present experience of time through triggers or choice. It has not been running alongside of us in another time line as it is only static particle energy. The other choices that we did not make remain in wave form only and do not construct other timelines in of themselves.

Not excluding the possibility that other worlds, organisms, or creations that we are not aware of that may exist in the third dimension are creating their own time lines. The greater possibility is that they most certainly are. What is challenging is that timelines are not created out of the choices we did not make.

This then leads to comment on the possible attempts at creating alternate timelines for us unsuspecting folks here on earth. Revelations of possible actions being misconception and a diversion intended to mitigate our understanding of how powerful we really are in manifesting the time equation. The rest is just mind clutter.

It is only a question of what we choose out of the field of all possibilities and collapse into the current manifesting timeline.

Continuing to collapse the wave form of our greater inspired choices will create an energetic mass equivalent that will manifest for us in current time.

Consciousness Lives in Quantum State after Death

The Ba and Ka of Ancient Egypt – Dr Robert Crookall, a geologist, became a well-respected investigator with his book Out of the Body Experiences (1961). He advanced a theory linking astral projection to survival. He agreed with Professor Hart (others) that the survival of the human personality after death was nothing more than permanent projection of the astral body.

He saw various degrees of projection involving two distinct portions of the human psyche. One, was conscious but immaterial, and had some objective existence. In OBE either or both of these portions may be projected.

Dr Crookall’s beliefs have some interesting parallels in the Ba and Ka concepts of the ancient Egyptians. They believed that the Ka was a “double” of the individual and that it was composed of very tenuous matter. It was supposed to live for some time after death and both the process of embalming and various funerary practices were intended to ensure that it lived on in the tomb. If the required practices were neglected the Ka was thought to emerge from the tomb to haunt those responsible.

The Ba was the soul of the Egyptians. It was conscious but immaterial. In life it was contained within the Ka. In death it left both the Ka and the body. There is some scientific evidence to support this concept. Dr Duncan McDougall of Haverhill, MA arranged to have dying patients placed on a sensitive weighing apparatus.

He found that there was a weight loss of from 2.0 to 2.5 ounces at the moment of death. The data could not be explained except in terms of something having left the body. Two Dutch Physicists, Dr J.L.W.P. Matla and Dr G.L. Zaalberg Van Zelst report similar observations and data.

They further reported that the proposed “astral body” appears to have a specific weight of 12.24 mg., that it responds to gravitation, and that it appears to be composed of particles that are small, heavy, but very widely separated.

How the human consciousness lives on after death – We man not know exactly what consciousness is, but British physicist Sir Roger Penrose believes that it’s just a packet of information stored at a quantum – or sub-atomic – level. He claims to have found evidence that this information, which is stored in microtubules within human cells, leaves the body after a person dies.

Penrose has argued that when a person dies, temporarily, this quantum information is released into the universe, only to return to the body’s cells if the host is brought back to life. He argues that this explains why people can have near-death experiences, and believes that this quantum information amounts to a soul leaving the body.

If the patient dies, it’s possible that this quantum information can exist outside the body, perhaps indefinitely, as a soul.

And Sir Roger is not alone in believing this, since his theory is backed by researchers at the renowned Max Planck Institute for Physics in Munich. Experts there argue that our physical universe is just a perception, and that once our bodies die there is an infinite life beyond.

What we consider the here and now, this world; it is actually just the material level that is comprehensible. The beyond is an infinite reality that is much bigger. The body dies but the spiritual quantum field continues. In this way, I am immortal

Testimonials from prominent physics researchers from institutions such as Cambridge University, Princeton University, and the Max Planck Institute for Physics in Munich claim that quantum mechanics predicts some version of “life after death.” They assert that a person may possess a body-soul duality that is an extension of the wave-particle duality of subatomic particles.

Wave-particle duality, a fundamental concept of quantum mechanics, proposes that elementary particles, such as photons and electrons, possess the properties of both particles and waves. These physicists claim that they can possibly extend this theory to the soul-body dichotomy. If there is a quantum code for all things, living and dead, then there is an existence after death (speaking in purely physical terms).

Just as a particle “writes” all of its information on its wave function, the brain is the tangible “floppy disk” on which we save our data, and this data is then “uploaded” into the spiritual quantum field. Continuing with this analogy, when we die the body, or the physical disk, is gone, but our consciousness, or the data on the computer, lives on.

“It is consciousness that creates the material universe, not the other way around.” ~Dr Hans-Peter Dürr

Biocentrism – In his book Biocentrism: How Life and Consciousness Are the Keys to Understanding the Nature of the Universe, Dr Robert Lanza proposes the notion that life does not end when the body dies, and it can last forever. Biocentrism teaches that life and consciousness are fundamental to the universe.

Lanza points to the structure of the universe itself, and that the laws, forces, and constants of the universe appear to be fine-tuned for life, implying intelligence existed prior to matter. He also claims that space and time are not objects or things, but rather tools of our animal understanding.

Lanza says that we carry space and time around with us “like turtles with shells.” meaning that when the shell comes off (space and time), we still exist. The theory implies that death of consciousness simply does not exist.

It only exists as a thought because people identify themselves with their body.

They believe that the body is going to perish, sooner or later, thinking their consciousness will disappear too. If the body generates consciousness, then consciousness dies when the body dies. But if the body receives consciousness in the same way that a cable box receives satellite signals, then of course consciousness does not end at the death of the physical vehicle.

In fact, consciousness exists outside of constraints of time and space. It is able to be anywhere: in the human body and outside of it. In other words, it is non-local in the same sense that quantum objects are non-local. Lanza also believes that multiple universes can exist simultaneously. In one universe, the body can be dead.

And in another it continues to exist, absorbing consciousness which migrated into this universe. This means that a dead person while traveling through the same tunnel ends up not in hell or in heaven, but in a similar world he or she once inhabited, but this time alive. And so on, infinitely. It’s almost like a cosmic Russian doll afterlife effect.

This hope-instilling, but extremely controversial theory by Lanza has many unwitting supporters, not just mere mortals who want to live forever, but also some well-known scientists. These are the physicists and astrophysicists who tend to agree with existence of parallel worlds and who suggest the possibility of multiple universes.

The Multiverse

The Multiverse (multi-universe) is a so-called scientific concept, which states that no physical laws exist which would prohibit the existence of parallel worlds. The first suggestion of this concept was put forth by science fiction writer H.G. Wells who proclaimed in his 1895 story, The Door in the Wall.

And after 62 years, this idea was developed by Dr Hugh Everett, in his graduate thesis at the Princeton University. It basically posits that at any given moment the universe divides into countless similar instances.

The Nature of Choice, as a gift from God – And the next moment, these “newborn” universes split in a similar fashion. In some of these worlds you may be present: reading this article in one universe, or watching TV in another. The triggering factor for these multiplying worlds is our actions, explained Everett.

“If we make some choices, instantly one universe splits into two with different versions of outcomes.” ~Dr. Hugh Everett

In the 1980s, Andrei Linde, scientist from the Lebedev’s Institute of physics, developed the theory of multiple universes. He is now a professor at Stanford University.

Space consists of many inflating spheres, which give rise to similar spheres, and those, in turn, produce spheres in even greater numbers, and so on to infinity. In the universe, they are spaced apart. They are not aware of each other’s existence. But they represent parts of the same physical universe.

The fact that our universe is not alone is supported by data received from the Planck space telescope. Using the data, scientists have created the most accurate map of the microwave background, the so-called cosmic relic background radiation, which has remained since the inception of our universe.

They also found that the universe has a lot of dark recesses represented by some holes and extensive gaps. Theoretical physicist Laura Mersini-Houghton from the North Carolina University with her colleagues argue: the anomalies of the microwave background exist due to the fact that our universe is influenced by other universes existing nearby. And holes and gaps are a direct result of attacks on us by neighboring universes.

The Nature of the Soul

So, there is abundance of places or other universes where our soul could migrate after death, according to the theory of neo-biocentrism. But does the soul exist? Is there any scientific theory of consciousness that could accommodate such a claim?

According to Dr. Stuart Hameroff, a near-death experience happens when the quantum information that inhabits the nervous system leaves the body and dissipates into the universe. Contrary to materialistic accounts of consciousness, Hameroff offers an alternative explanation of consciousness that can perhaps appeal to both the rational scientific mind and personal intuitions.

Consciousness resides, according to Stuart and British physicist Sir Roger Penrose, in the microtubules of the brain cells, which are the primary sites of quantum processing. Upon death, this information is released from your body, meaning that your consciousness goes with it. They have argued that our experience of consciousness is the result of quantum gravity effects in these microtubules, a theory which they dubbed orchestrated objective reduction (Orch-OR). Consciousness, or at least proto-consciousness is theorized by them to be a fundamental property of the universe, present even at the first moment of the universe during the Big Bang.

In one such scheme proto-conscious experience is a basic property of physical reality accessible to a quantum process associated with brain activity.

Our souls are in fact constructed from the very fabric of the universe – and may have existed since the beginning of time. Our brains are just receivers and amplifiers for the proto-consciousness that is intrinsic to the fabric of space-time.

So is there really a part of your consciousness that is non-material and will live on after the death of your physical body? Dr Hameroff told the Science Channel’s Through the Wormhole documentary

Let’s say the heart stops beating, the blood stops flowing, the microtubules lose their quantum state. The quantum information within the microtubules is not destroyed, it can’t be destroyed, it just distributes and dissipates to the universe at large.

Robert Lanza would add here that not only does it exist in the universe, it exists perhaps in another universe. If the patient is resuscitated, revived, this quantum information can go back into the microtubules and the patient says “I had a near death experience.”

If they’re not revived, and the patient dies, it’s possible that this quantum information can exist outside the body, perhaps indefinitely, as a soul.”

This account of quantum consciousness explains things like near-death experiences, astral projection, out-of-body experiences, and even reincarnation without needing to appeal to religious ideology.

Dreams and the Multiverse

In this world there could be a copy of yourself making different decisions and seeing places that somehow later manifest themselves in your dreams. For thousands of years people have wondered about the meaning of dreams. Why do some people dream about future events? Why are some dreams full of hidden meaning?

The energy of your consciousness potentially gets recycled back into a different body at some point, and in the mean time it exists outside of the physical body on some other level of reality, and possibly in another universe.

Can some of our dreams be glimpses of events taking place in an alternate reality, a parallel Universe? Our ancestors were as curious about dreams as modern scientists are today. Ancient Greeks and Romans believed dreams provided messages from the gods. In ancient China people treated dreams as a way to visit the world of dead. Ancient Egyptians were convinced that those who could interpret dream possessed special powers.

Many Native American tribes and Mexican civilizations believed dreams were a different world we visit when we sleep. The word “dream” comes from an old word in English that means “joy” and “music.” Today we know that dreams are often expressions of thoughts, feelings and events that pass through our mind while we are sleeping.

When we ask a profound question about the nature of reality, do we not expect an answer that sounds strange? Evolution provided us with intuition for the everyday physics that had survival value for our distant ancestors, so whenever we venture beyond the everyday world, we should expect it to seem bizarre.

a repost: 5 Things You Realize When You Wake Up and Question Reality

Article  posted on Waking Times (click link for original)

 

Dylan Charles, Editor
Waking Times

“What is real? How do you define real? If you’re talking about what you can feel, what you can smell, what you can taste and see, then real is simply electrical signals interpreted by your brain.” ~Morpheus, The Matrix

Ever get the feeling that reality isn’t really what we think it is?

The further science, technology and human evolution take us the more questions we have about the nature of reality and the role of consciousness. Is this a hologram or an illusion? Are we dreaming or in a simulation? Do we shift between parallel universes as we make different choices? And what of the spiritual dimensions? Are human beings really just a single unified cosmic consciousness experiencing itself from billions of points of isolated and limited perception? Does anyone know for sure?

Few are privy to the secrets of reality, but the journey of awakening begins when one starts questioning everything. Whether it be the big global conspiracies, secret societies, the corporate control matrix, big pharma and the medical cartel, the banking establishment, the shape of the earth, or the purpose of life, the journey is at first an inquisition.

Along the way you notice ways in which approaching life with an open-mind changes you, and how it turns long-held beliefs and assumptions upside down, forever altering your perception and relation to it all.

1. You Realize that Patterns and Programs Govern Everything and Everyone

We learn primarily by mimicry…. monkey see, monkey do. As a child grows and develops consciousness over time, they move from confusion to differentiation, to situational awareness, then to identification, ultimately arriving at self-awareness. By the time they become self-aware, their perception of what the world is all about is well-formed. The programs in play here affect the rest of their lives.

“We laugh at sheep because sheep just follow the one in front. We humans have out-sheeped the sheep, because at least the sheep need a sheep dog to keep them in line. Humans keep each other in line. And they do it by ridiculing or condemning anyone who commits the crime, and that’s what it’s become, of being different.” ~David Icke

Conformity to patterns of thought and patterns of behavior are learned, and when you watch people closely, you notice that most of them are imitating the examples they’ve seen their whole lives. Emotional behavior, notions of success, relationships, rules, laws, and even love for self are all ingrained programs, many of which need to be undone in order for spiritual growth to occur.

If we can be programmed, we can also be re-programmed.

2. You Learn that the Most Valuable Commodity is Your Attention

Advertisers, governments, media organizations and business are quickly learning that in this new age of technological wonders capturing people’s attention is priority number one. Attention is the greatest commodity of today.

With so much competition for your attention, you begin to realize how valuable it is to others, and eventually you realize how valuable it is to yourself. You notice that what you give your attention to creates the environment in which you live, and therefore the information and ideas you focus on and consume will work together to shape your personal reality.

This is why it is absolutely essential to consciously direct your focus where it is deserved, carefully choosing which ideas and perspectives are worthy of your time and congruent with the life you wish to lead. And your time is your life, so your attention is priceless.

3. You Notice that Perceptions Can Change in an Instant, Changing Everything

It only takes the right scrap of information, the right quote, or the right idea at the right time to change your whole understanding of the world.

“Change the way you see things and the things you see will change.” ~Wayne Dyer

Again, media organizations and propagandists already know this, which is why news is crafted the way it is, carefully framing, suggesting and omitting ideas so as to manage the perceptions of the masses. The crux of mind control is perception management.

When you begin to question everything, you start to wonder if your perceptions and belief about society and your own life are really true. You wonder if they are your own perceptions or if they belong to someone else. You begin to ask if your outlook is based on the complete picture, or if it is based on a limited understanding and a limited knowing.

When you grasp this, you begin to understand just how much power you have to control your own perceptions, and then your own reality, and are no longer bound to the whims of others.

4. You Begin to See that Everything is an Illusion

The eyes turn tricks with light to create images inside the brain using only a tiny fraction of the entire spectrum of electromagnetic frequencies in front of us. The subconscious mind makes a fool of the conscious mind by secretly adding depth and meaning to the images we create. These images combine with experience to form beliefs, and the ego constructs an identity out of them. Above all of this sits the spirit, watching and waiting for an opportunity to break free from the illusions of what we think it means to be alive and conscious in a material world.

But the world we are in is insufferably material, and this materialism works magic with light, symbols and imagery in order to create illusions. Illusions about authority, happiness, truth and success can be incredibly powerful, but upon deeper inquiry, you’ll eventually notice that nothing is ever what it seems.

The rich and famous aren’t always happy or healthy. Those who enforce the law don’t always follow the law. The powerful are often bested by the weak. The aim of politics is not to unite, but to divide. Time isn’t money, it is your life. And on and on.

“We live in a culture where everything tastes good but nothing satisfies.” ~Daniel Pinchbeck

5. You Finally Realize there is Nothing to Fear

In the exploration of the self, fear is the first thing to go, and once it is unwound and cast aside a tremendous sense of freedom takes over, defying the negative shock programming in our world today. This runs counter to the messages of the media who rely on stoking fear to control and to sell, but once you’ve broken through the illusions that create a false reality, and are able to see that love is the organizing force in our universe, fear dissolves entirely.

“Everything is the light.” ~Nikola Tesla

Eventually, upon self-reflection, it becomes clear that consciousness and the soul are eternal. We truly are cosmic beings having a human experience, and we are capable of knowing that once this existence comes to an end something greater and more magical awaits us.

The greatest realization of them all is that there is nothing to fear.

Final Thoughts

Our shared world is created by the collected thoughts and actions of individuals. Therefore, to change the world for the better we must first elevate our own consciousness so that we may overcome the traps and obstacles set before us by a dying culture and a psychopathic power structure. The only way to do this is to turn our attention onto the act of understanding how we as individuals perceive and relate to the world we share. This is how we evolve.

Decoding Netflix’s “Bright” from a Black perspective

From The Melanin Man:

The moment I finished watching “Bright” I knew I would have to write a post on it. The social and political themes are obvious to the casual observer, but there is also SO MUCH metaphysical and occult symbology and knowledge hidden in this film one could write on it for days.

I’m still “green” when it comes to the occult, which means hidden in Latin, mythology and mysteries of the universe. I have to admit, learning occult knowledge is really tricky at times. But thanks to binge watching on a ton of Bobby Hemmitt YouTube videos over the past two to three months, I feel like I have basic understanding of the occult as it relates to Black-Melanin Dominant population.

If you haven’t watched the movie but don’t plan to, feel free to read the plot summary courtesy of IDMB. If you’ve watched or plan on watching Bright, you can bypass straight to my “meat n’ potatoes” analysis of the film. I wasn’t going to trouble myself with typing a synopsis as I normally do.

This film is set in an alternate reality of the city of Los Angeles, where humans co-exist with orcs, elves, and fairies. Officer Daryl Ward (Will Smith) is out on the streets with his partner, Nick Jakoby (Joel Edgerton), who is the world’s first orc cop. Jakoby is grabbing a burrito when an orc gangster emerges from a shop and blasts Ward with a shotgun.

Some time later, Ward is ready to go back to the force. He is struggling to keep his house that he shares with his wife Sherri (Dawn Olivieri) and daughter Sophia (Scarlet Spencer). Sophia hates that her dad is a cop because she worries he’ll get killed. They see a video from Joe Rogan interviewing an orc as they discuss Jakoby being on the force. The other orcs hate Jakoby as they consider him a traitor. Ward dislikes having him as a partner because he blames Jakoby for him getting shot. Sherri then makes him go outside to deal with a fairy that’s attacking the bird feeder. Ward takes a broom and whacks the fairy to death.

Ward and Jakoby ride together, with Ward openly blaming Jakoby for the shooting incident. After driving through the wealthy Elftown neighborhood, they arrive at work, where a few rotten cops – Pollard (Ike Barinholtz), Hicks (Matt Gerald), and Brown (Joseph Piccuirro) – mock Jakoby when he’s not around. When Ward is assigned to be on patrol with Jakoby for the day, he protests to Sergeant Ching (Margaret Cho), but she doesn’t care for his complaints.

Ward and Jakoby head downtown to handle a disturbance, meeting with Sheriff Rodriguez (Jay Hernandez). A crazy man named Serling (Chris Browning) is waving a sword around and yelling nonsense. With the officers drawing their weapons, Serling surrenders and is taken into custody. On the ride back to the precinct, Serling pukes in the back of the car before starting to speak Orkish to Jakoby, saying he has a message from an organization called the Shield of Light, telling him to “remember the old ways”, and how a prophecy has chosen him, and that Ward is blessed.

Ward is later approached by Captain Perez (Andrea Navedo), along with two men – Yamahara (Kenneth Choi) and Arkashian (Bobby Naderi) – who order Ward to record Jakoby admitting that he let Ward’s shooter get away.

Serling is interrogated by an elf FBI agent, Kandomere (Edgar Ramirez), and his partner Montehugh (Happy Anderson). The agents ask Serling what he knows about two elf sisters – Leilah (Noomi Rapace) and Tikka (Lucy Fry). Serling knows that Leilah is a dark elf, part of the Inferni clan that wants to resurrect the Dark Lord, an evil entity that was defeated 2,000 years earlier by the Nine Armies. Leilah and her minions want to bring him back to unleash darkness upon the world with the use of three magic wands. Leilah is a “Bright”, meaning she can wield a wand without it destroying her. Montehugh says they need to find Tikka in order to set a trap for Leilah.

On the night patrol, Ward tries to get Jakoby to confess to the incident, when they are alerted to something going on at a house on Abrams Street. They arrive and are shot at by an unseen assailant. After a shootout, the officers kill the assailant. They head inside the house and find dead bodies, including a few that look like they were burnt alive. The officers find Tikka, who is in possession of the wand.

Ward calls in Ching and the other cops in regards to the wand. They want the wand for themselves, and they order Ward to go along with it and kill Jakoby, or he dies as well. Ward goes outside to do the job, but first he presses Jakoby at gunpoint on what really happened when he got shot. Jakoby admits he did let the shooter get away, but it was because he lost him in a crowd. He thought he cornered the guy in an alley, but it was just a young orc spray-painting the side of a building. Knowing that the human officers would kill the kid on the spot, Jakoby let him get away on a fire escape. Moments later, Ching and the officers step outside. Ward spins around quickly and shoots them all dead, but Pollard is the only one hanging on for his life. Jakoby attempts to arrest Ward until they are approached by a gang led by wheelchair-bound Poison (Enrique Murciano), who knows about the wand and wants it for himself so that he can walk again. Ward and Jakoby take Tikka and head into their van as the gangsters start attacking.

The officers drive away as the gangsters pursue them. The gangsters shoot at them, but Ward and Jakoby are able to shake most of them off. They find a place to hide briefly until more gangsters come after them. One of them finds the wand and tries to grab it, but it causes him to explode and kill those around him.

Leilah and her minions arrive at the Abrams house and find Pollard dying before Leilah finishes the job. She then finds another Inferni elf, Larika (Nadia Grey), who is stuck to the walls. She tells Leilah that Tikka got away with the wand, and she slashes Larika’s throat. The elves then come across a family that they kill for more information on the wand’s whereabouts. Kandomere and Montehugh later come upon the crime scene at the Abrams house, and Kandomere knows Leilah has lost the wand, making her vulnerable.

Ward, Jakoby, and Tikka walk through a sleazy orc/human strip club. Poison and his gang find them and once again threaten them for the wand, but Leilah and her minions show up and slaughter Poison and his gang. Another shootout happens, forcing the trio to run again. They run into a nearby convenience store where they find a place to hide. While tending to their wounds in a bathroom, Ward and Jakoby discuss their relationship. Although Ward doesn’t think of them as friends, he does tell Jakoby that he shouldn’t want to be like him, despite Jakoby previously stating he wishes he were because he sees Ward as fearless.

Rodriguez shows up to the store after hearing about Ward killing the officers. He orders Ward to cuff Jakoby since everyone suspects him anyway, and Jakoby willingly relents. Rodriguez is then shot dead as the elves drive up and crash through the store, shooting at the cops. The trio fight back, shooting at the elves before getting away.

The trio are then found by a group of orc gangsters belonging to the Fogteeth clan. After Ward mocks them, they get beaten and dragged to a church that serves as their lair. The orcs bring them to their leader, Dorghu (Brad William Henke). He wants the wand as well, and he mocks Jakoby for being unblooded (accepted by the other orcs as one of their own). After the cops refuse to give up the wand, Dorghu orders them to be executed. The guards drag Ward and Jakoby to a pit, and Dorghu orders his son Mikey (Brandon Larracuente) to execute Jakoby. However, Mikey can’t bring himself to do so, because he is the young orc that Jakoby let get away. Dorghu allows Mikey to go home, and Dorghu shoots Jakoby, letting his body fall into the pit. Tikka then pulls out the wand and uses it to resurrect Jakoby and raise his body up. The other orcs are astonished and kneel before Jakoby, believing him to be the one the prophecy spoke of. The three then leave.

Tikka then speaks English for the first time, now that she knows she can trust Ward and Jakoby. She explains that she took the wand because she knew Leilah wanted to bring back the Dark Lord, and she had sent Larika to kill her, but Tikka took the wand herself. The use of the wand took a toll on her, and it’s starting to kill her. She tells them that the Shield of Light can help them if they take her to a pool back at the Abrams house.

Ward and Jakoby bring Leilah back to the house. Leilah and the other dark elves show up and battle the cops. Ward and Jakoby manage to kill the elves, and Jakoby appears to shoot Leilah dead. They then take Tikka to the pool beneath a tree, but Leilah emerges, still alive. When she tries to get the wand, Ward grabs it himself. It starts to glow, and he doesn’t explode, meaning he is a Bright. Tikka tells him a war word to cast a spell, which Ward repeats, causing the wand to blast Leilah to smithereens. Outside, authorities arrive just as they witness the explosion. Ward and Jakoby look for Tikka, but she’s gone.

The officers are in the hospital and are approached by Kandomere and Montehugh. Although Jakoby tries to explain everything that happened, Ward denies that there was ever a wand, and that gangsters killed the corrupt officers.

In the final scene, Ward and Jakoby are commemorated for their heroism. Pollard, Brown, Hicks, and Ching are also honored alongside Rodriguez, with Ward expressing his hatred for that fact. Jakoby tells him to let it go, since at least they know the truth. Sherri and Sophia are there to support Ward, while he and Jakoby notice Tikka walking among the crowd, smiling at them.

So hopefully you got the gist of what went down on the surface in the film. Now…to the real deal.

From the little information of come across so far concerning the hidden mysteries of the universe, I’ve come to realize that anything involving the occult or occult practices is not limited to those of the pale-skinned, Melanin-Recessive nature. The biggest misconception is that those of that ilk are the foremost knowledgeable when comes to occult knowledge. In fact, when it comes to the occult, all of it is African-based, derived from the ancient civilizations such as Egypt and Ethiopia (Kush) and dispersed on all corners of the planet. From the mythologies prevalent in our religions and belief systems to the occult sciences (numerology, cosmology, cosmogony, astrology, astronomy), it is ALL the creation of people who were African, Black-Melanin Dominant.

It should common knowledge at this point that the white, Caucasoid European did not create ANYTHING whatsoever on this physical plane. Nor do they have any real access to the metaphysical/spiritual realm as they seemingly have a stranglehold on many various occult texts stolen discovered from the ancient world over millennia.

Unless they have a little Black in their DNA, which leads me back to the film itself.

The wand, the main plot device throughout the film, acts as a representation for having the ability to connect to the metaphysical/spiritual realm (the unseen realm), the realm that directly effects the physical realm, the realm that truly matters in the grand scheme of things. The wand was originally possessed by a wicked subset of Elves (who’s considered the Elite, the self-proclaimed cream of the crop in the film. Sound familiar?) called the Inferni, which derived from the Illuminati. Although these dark Elves had control of the wand, they could not harness its true power without the assistance of a Bright.

Connecting it to what I know and the real world, I interpreted a Bright to be a person who possesses a soul and has to the ability to tap into the spiritual realm. In some underground circles, it is believed that the vast majority of Blacks have souls (is it a wonder Blacks make the greatest soul singers?) whereas the majority of those who are considered white” do not. Those who are white who do have souls undoubtedly have “a drop of Black” in their DNA.

If you touch the wand with your bare hands and you’re not a Bright, you can burn ALIVE. It symbolizes the rising of the Kundalini (primal energy located at the ROOT Chakra, where the soul resides.) Except no SOUL exists.

(If you’re not familiar with the Kundalini, please find the time to do some research.)

The wand possessed by the evil leader of Inferni, Leilah

Notice in the picture that evil elf Leilah is wearing gloves so she can be able to hold the wand. The cops that turn against Will Smith’s character Daryl Ward and his cop partner Nick Jacoby scoop the wand, not with their bare hands, but with a Duffel bag. There’s also a scene where a group of Hispanic gangbangers, who are chasing after Daryl, Nick, and the benevolent elf Tikka (who’s a Bright), attempt to pick up the wand and subsequently burn alive.

How convenient is it that the only human in the film that was able to pick up the wand with their bare hands was Will Smith’s Daryl Ward, who only discovers at the moment prior to destroying Leilah that he himself was a Bright (or one with a soul?)

I peeped that out the moment it was mentioned by the crazy Serling that Daryl was “blessed.”

Tikka, prior to turning traitor to Inferni, was used by Leilah to harness the power of the wand. It can be assumed that Tikka represents the Black woman (who holds the supreme “feminine principle” connection to the spiritual realm) who’s unknowingly, and in some cases knowingly, used by the Elite (who possess practically all of the ancient occult knowledge) to keep and maintain the current paradigm.

And what about the Dark Lord, which was defeated approximately 2,000 years ago by the Nine Armies? Which coincidentally falls around the same time of the chronology of Christ myth?

Side note: Check this post out. This is a good detailed read on the occult symbology that was showcased in Bright. I found one tidbit very interesting. The number of armies that defeated the the “Dark Lord” 2,000 years ago is the same number concerning the Nine Circles of Hell of Dante Alighieri’s Inferno . It details how individuals rejected spirituality in favor of bestial appetites, perverting the human intellectual capacity through the nine sins listed in the image below.

“The Nine Circles of Hell”

Could it be that the Dark Lord was metaphorically defeated by these nine sins?

We know by now that “dark” should not be seen as “evil,” per se. And “dark” directly correlates to melanin, or “dark matter.” So the fall of the Dark Lord can be viewed as the fall of the people with melanin, the loss of their dominance in the physical world, in part due to its own undoing. Tikka mentions if the Dark Lord returns, he will destroy billions of lives and enslave the remaining to worship him in a new age of magic. I’m not entirely sure on this topic so I’m taking a shot in the dark on this one. If you don’t view this through the lens of good vs. evil, the Brights (ones with souls) will be the ones to “worship the Dark Lord” (respect for the true natural order of universe?) in a “new age of magic” (the new reality of fifth dimensional consciousness?) Inferni may be attempting to gain leverage of the situation, thinking by summoning the Dark Lord through Brights like Tikka (black woman) it can maintain its Elitist position when he returns.

I may be reaching on this one, but hey it doesn’t hurt to try, right?!

Also in the scene where the Orc cop Nick (if you haven’t noticed yet, the film portrays Orcs similar to low-income Blacks, as whole, from the real world) is raised from the dead by Tikka is a Christ-like manner is not accidental either. I believe it symbolizes the Black man rising back up by reconnecting to his better half, the Black woman, through the occult knowledge of his ancestors.

On side note: the partnering of Daryl and Nick is also intriguing to me, as they portray the Black man in two distinct realities. There is no mention of Daryl’s skin tone nor is it necessary since he is viewed and accepted fully as a human being by assimilating into the system i.e. his white wife and biracial offspring. Nick as an Orc whose not assimilated in the system cannot escape his Orc background/ethnicity (his Blackness) and thus must fight daily to prove his worth (his humanity) to his cop colleagues. This is further illustrated when Nick is trapped with the dilemma of fulfilling his duties as a cop and arresting an innocent Orc graffiti artist (staying loyal to his Blackness). He decides to let him go (being Black first, profession second), placing his job in jeopardy. The act, along with the fact he was “raised from the dead”, gained Nick street cred with the Orc gang that captured and sacrificed him, which ironically was the same gang the Orc kid graffiti artist was a member of.

Will Smith’s Daryl Ward: “You’re really my homie, you know that?!”

This is what I took from Bright. As mentioned before, there is WAYYYY more information in the movie that I glossed over. Again, I think this post does a good job highlighting a good chunk of it.

Let me know your thoughts. Stay vigilant and prudent in watching these movies, fam!

Always look for the deeper, the hidden, message!

The Melanin Man’s Christmas Rant Part 1: It’s True…Santa Claus Does Exist!

Image result for santa claus thief

From the Melanin Man:

This is going to be short but I wanted to share a thought with you today. For those of you that still acknowledge the day, it’s almost Christmas and time is running out to give away our moneys and energies to attain the latest and greatest toys and gadgets that will most definitely be obsolete the moment you buy them.

But I’m not going to harp about that. I wanna focus on that FAT-ASS fictional character we trick our gullible offspring into believing at a very young age.

Mister Santeeee Claus!!!!

Yet the thing is, Santa Claus is not fictional. He’s most definitely alive and well.  Think about it. A jolly old obese white man who lives on the cold frigid environment of the North Pole and provides everything that your kids (and you at one point before you assumedly became an adult)  want and have asked him once a year.

Whom does that remind you of?

Hmmmm…wait a minute. This sounds familiar..

-Doesn’t the elite (the unseen powers-that-be) run and control ALL industries on the face of the earth that PROVIDES these latest and greatest toys and gadgets to the ignorant masses we throw our hard-earned monies on?

-Isn’t the majority of the elite (let’s be honest, about damn near all of them) white, European, Caucasian (**cough** Melanin-Recessive**cough**) who are cold-natured?

-Doesn’t the elite mainly keep out of the sight of the public eye for the most part as well?

-And ain’t this same elite getting FAT RICH AND POWERFUL off of that same hard-earned monies we continue to spend and give away to them for JUNK????

Yes, Santa does sound awfully like that parasitic elite.

 

 

Only difference is Santa comes once a year. The elite is a constant in every facet of our  lives…from the wiping of our asses and flushing of the toilet, to the way we raise and teach our sons and daughters!!!

Like a leech.

So in essence, Christmas in its modern form is really a holiday to the elite, personified through Santa Claus, as we foolishly pay homage to them at a higher than normal (see” “extreme”) level!

Consumerism and Materialism wins again!! Gotta love it!!!

(And for my “Hallelujah! Thank Ya Jesus!” believers, don’t give me the “Jesus is the reason for the season” bull-malarkey either. Not gonna get into that…this Christmas. Saving that for Part 2.)

 

The only thing I get from this time of year is an opportunity to see family and friends, even if I may or may not have beef with a few of them (lol!) And that’s ALWAYS been the case with me despite the charade of Christmas, or any holiday for that matter.

At the end of the day that’s what truly matters. Heh, I bet you’re thinking that’s a “Duh!” comment, right?!  Well, it’s OK to be reminded every once and a while. People do have a tendency to forget the truth (i.e. “Blacks were the first and only hue-mans on the planet, the REAL originators of civilizations, many eons ago.”)

So this “holiday”, appreciate your loved ones, revel in their presence, and be the best you that you can be.

Oh…and remember to stay conscious at ALL TIMES!

 

 

Peace and Love to melanated family,
