From The Melanin Man:

When you continue to learn and  unlearn each day through your life, you begin to understand the simplest of things on many different levels. Take for instance the well-known children’s bedtime prayer “Now I Lay Me Down To Sleep.” The spirit (my INNER SELF) spoke to me the other morning about this prayer, and this is what it revealed to me. Enjoy!

 

Original Prayer

“Now I lay me down to sleep

I pray the Lord my soul to keep

If I should die before I wake

I pray the Lord my soul to take”

Bonus: “If I should live for other days

I pray Thee Lord to guide my ways”

 

MY INTERPRETATION

“Now I enter into the slumber of humanity

I ask that my soul is protected by the Source

If my human shell perishes before my soul awakes

I ask that my soul returns to the Source”

Bonus: “If I should live for more days

I ask the God in my thru my first (THIRD) eye to guide me.”

 

What do you think? Am I spot on or off just a bit??

 

 

Peace and Love to my melanated family,

Food For Thought: Divine Truth Lies in Pure Darkness (Melanin)

Excerpt from “The Diamond Approach” concerning Divine Darkness:

(Words and statements underlined or in bold are at my discretion.)

Becoming Increasingly Intimate with the Divine Light, the Absolute Transcendent Truth

Clearly, the nature of this process and its accompanying experience can lead us to the conclusion that the absolutely transcendent truth is unknowable. When absolute transcendence is taken to mean true nature totally apart from any manifest form, this is true. However, we see this as one possible understanding of this process. While it is true that our experience is such that we feel we know less and less as we are enveloped in the divine darkness, we are actually becoming increasingly intimate with the divine light, the absolute transcendent truth. We perceive and discriminate less, but this decrease of discrimination is not an increasing ignorance. It is the increase of a different kind of knowledge, a knowledge that is in its nature beyond discrimination, beyond the recognition of qualities and attributes. It is the simplicity of the source, which is so single that its knowing is an unknowing. As we become more enveloped in the divine darkness we are actually enveloped in divine light, for the divine light is dark. It is black light, the source of all light, not colorless but pre-color. We might think that clear light is the ultimate light, as is asserted by some Buddhist schools. However, clarity is an attribute, albeit a fundamental one. It is the absence of color, but not the ontological antecedent of color. Black light is the luminous divine darkness, the source of all light, and the origin of awareness.

The Inner Journey Home, pg. 255

 

Moving Away from Manifestation Toward Transcendent Truth We Lose Consciousness of Anything

This experience of no perception, internal or external, is reported by advanced practitioners of most wisdom traditions. This indicates that we cannot know true nature in its absoluteness, because as we move away from manifestation and toward the transcendent truth we lose consciousness of anything. Such a conclusion is supported by the fact that the movement deeper into pure true nature, as awareness relieves itself of the perception of manifestation, is an experience of being increasingly enveloped by darkness, a divine darkness that feels like grace. The sense of the experience is that the light of true nature darkens the consciousness of the soul, liberating her from the perception of phenomena, as it draws her nearer. The soul feels increasingly close to the source as she feels more enveloped by darkness. At the point of complete nearness, that of unity, the darkness is complete, and there is no perception or awareness of anything, including darkness.

Food For Thought: “I Don’t Have to Do a Nothin’ But Stay Black and Die”

Related image

Not my creation, though I wish I did come up with it lol

 

From The Melanin Man:

To Stay Black and Die! 

There is NO DOUBT in my mind that is the ULTIMATE destiny for every single Black-Melanated Man and Woman on the face of this earth.

Yet that’s easier said than done.

Melanin is the substance that makes up our souls and is the SUPREME SOURCE of the known and unknown universe.  According to the Good Book, there was ONLY darkness (a.k.a. melanin, dark matter, or blackness) and NOTHING ELSE prior to creation. That means the Black-Melanated Man & Woman are primordial beings that have always existed in spite of creation. This world of creation is the illusion, the dream (or nightmare depending on your current state of mind) we’ve accepted, the LIE we’ve bought into.

Knowing that let bit of information, let’s analyze the statement, “I don’t have to do nothin’ but stay Black and die!” deeper:

I Don’t Have to Do Nothin’ means the Black-Melanated Man & Woman should NOT feel obligated to prove they are WORTHY OF EXISTENCE.

You don’t have to work your ass off on a 9 to 5,  you don’t have to parade around as an activist, you don’t have to fight with your bare knuckles or even your words, and you sure as hell  shouldn’t have to invent, produce, or create anything to prove your Blackness.

From the beginning, you were Black, you are Black, and you will FOREVER BE BLACK!

Stay Black means to live by truth and accept what’s real no matter the consequences. There was nothing else but Black, melanin, truth, in the beginning, before the illusion. It’s a humongous detriment to our soul when we choose to believe in the i-LIE-sion, because we are already made up of what’s really REAL.

And Die! means to deny the shackles of humanity, the GRANDEST part of the i-LIE-sion, and embrace the divinity that radiates within you. You should not fear death whatsoever because it is your salvation. Death becomes even more meaningful when you are able to live the life you desired to live when you incarnated ( and/or reincarnated!) into this human shell.

This statement is so powerful on so many levels it’s crazy.

But the wool has been pulled over our eyes. We have been hoodwinked, BAMBOOZLED!

The greatest trick that has been pulled on the Black-Melanated Man & Woman is that we lack for something, when we’ve had EVERYTHING from the get-go. The Black-Melanated Man & Woman has mutated into a insecure being that has chosen to place his/her faith in finding the answers to his struggles in every nook & cranny of CREATION instead of  turning inward.

What a tragedy.

You must break this vicious cycle by returning to the “truth of the DARK matter” that lies within you, Black-Melanated Man & Woman, and detach yourself from human affairs.

Or in other words, YOU DON’T HAVE TO DO A DAMN THANG BUT STAY BLACK AND DIE!

 

K.I.S.S. Keep it simple, stupid.

 

Peace and Love to my melanated family,

The Melanin Man

Food For Thought: To Create or Not Create? That is the Question

From the Melanin Man:

It’s a wonderful thing, having the ability to create.

About 98% of Black folk do not even realize that they have abilities similar to the Creator, or whomever (or what?) created this holographic universe, to whom we also foolishly give reverence to. We can alter our realities in whatever manner we see fit in the blink of an eye if we wanted to, and it doesn’t require a extravagant economic plan, strict diet nor “apocalyptic” survival techniques to do so.

Mentalism (the very first of the  Hermetic Principles, “the mind is all, the universe is mental”) is the key.  Only the initiated, the very few of us, are privy and comprehend such information.

You are the master, the Creator of your own reality, Black Man & Woman. Somewhere along the line our minds were hijacked and programmed to practice servitude and obedience to entities and principalities that are below our TRUE NATURE as heirs of the earth…TITANS!

Like Thanos, the TRUE HERO of Avengers: Infinity War, WE ARE TITANS! (Image courtesy of http://www.sideshow.com)

 

And yet, something is bugging me.  Lately, I have been conflicted concerning the concept of being your own Creator.  You know, everything of existence comes from the ethers, the unseen, the hidden (occult), DARK MATTER (melanin). To create, to be your own Creator, is basically bringing forth light from darkness. Anything and everything that is brought into the light of existence is left up to interpretation by the five senses of huemanity to what it might be…could be…or SHOULD be.

It is LABELED. It is CONFINED!

That, in essence, describes the soul of the Black-Melanated Man & Woman entrapped in a human shell. Which is why I say, to those of you who have become addicted to creating when it comes to improving your  HUMAN CONDITION, you are doing your SOUL a disservice.

Do you really want to get comfortable in your own prison…I mean skin?

Plus, it seems each time in history, when we did create for the sake of huemanity, we got the short end of the stick.  The others took advantage of our generosity and capitalized on our creations. Man, that shit has gotten old!

The Black-Melanated Man & Woman, absence the restraints of huemanity, has no need to create ANYTHING. Our true power is incomprehensible. In calculus terminology, we are functions with a limit of INFINITY, or rather, there is NO LIMIT TO US!   Anything you or I create on this realm should be to assist us in liberating our souls from the cycle of human mundaneness.

THAT’S IT.

I’m pretty sure the ideas for music, literature, etc., that we pull from the ethers would like to be bounded to this illusion for a better reason besides temporary feel-good and some chump change. Remember the importance of mentalism. It is pertinent that you become open-minded, fam.

 

Some words of advice:

Be quick to observe, slow to judge.

Learn everyday. Laugh as hard as you can. Love unconditionally. That’s my personal motto.

Also, don’t become attached to this. LET GO!

This is a test. This is NOT REAL!

 

That’s all folks!

Embrace Your Struggle, ‘O Great Old Ones!!

From the Melanin Man:

 

I’ve come two realizations concerning being a Black Man/Woman on this planet:

Number one, STRUGGLE IS OUR BIRTHRIGHT!

That’s cruel, it’s harsh. Yet, it’s the TRUTH.

Now I’m not blind. Everybody, whether they have melanin or not, even those who are in the top 1% in society, endure hardship in some form or fashion during their imprisonment as a human being. Yet, we can all agree and this is wouldn’t be a reach to say this, but the Black Man/Woman (not just of color, but of mind, spirit, and soul) is the most hated, despised enemy on the face of the earth!

I haven’t traveled all over the world to verify this FACT, but I was born and raised in the modern-day Roman civilization, the gold -standard of modern civilization, the good-ole US of A. The American way has infiltrated in every crevice of society, in every “third-world” and “first-world” country (some bullshit smh), like a incurable plague. And Caesar has plundered the minds and talents of the authentic Black Man/Woman to his own benefit and have sanctioned any attempt to liberate the minds and hearts of Black people to be act punishable by DEATH, whether in a cage, by the bullet, or my personal favorite and maybe the most damning of them all, assimilation.

We are the enemy of the state, the weeds in the grass.

 

Some context: I’ve been working in my lawn recently, removing  “weeds”, mainly so we can avoid the side-eye from H.O.A (the homeowner’s association, or as I call ’em, the neighborhood police) and the neighbors, to make our lawn fit in like the rest. It takes a considerable amount of consistent effort to spray and remove “weeds”, or rather, the undesirables within the neat and petite grass collective. If you let up just a bit, the weeds will take over and outgrow the neat and petite grass. And that’s all that you will notice in your lawn, THE WEEDS!

See the correlation? See how in the most mundane of activities (freaking lawn care?!) our minds are being geared to see the world in a certain way?

 

Black Man/Woman, we are NOT weeds. We are NOT undesirables. We are the  INEVITABILITY of what’s real. That’s why “they” continue to put the fire to our ass and try to weed us out of the picture.

“They” know deep down they have to or it’s OVER for them.

Which, unfortunately, leads me to my second realization, probably the most depressing of the two, for the Black Man/Woman:

Number 2, WE AIN’T OVERCOMING SHIT!

Well, when it concerns anything involving this PHYSICAL BULLSHIT.

There is no amount of education, no pristine healthy lifestyle,  no economic plan (that includes NO REPARATIONS #ADOS) that will satisfy our trapped souls, to keep us interested in the lowest form of being, the human being. The Black-Melanated Man/Woman, the original ones, perfected the art of humanity eons ago.

We are the example everyone else follows. Through our ancient texts which were co-opted and appropriated from our ancestors, we have given others the tools to behave  human and civilized, as well as the opportunity to experience spiritual enlightenment…if that even exist for those who lack melanin. 

Now, you couldn’t tell that from what you see out here on the media. In the eyes of world, we are the savages, the uncivilized. During some point along the way, we gave up the reigns of this realm of humanity to the Caucasoid, as he’s become the current standard bearer for how to be a human being.

And what a glorious, treacherous, murderous reign he has oversaw! Rest assured, he’s going to everything in his power, including sacrificing his own kind, to keep his reign of terror chugging along.

Yet, and I mentioned it previously, we are NOT suppose to return back to the pinnacle of humanity.

Been there, done that.

So why are we so concerned about being good & moral Christians, Muslims,  Hebrew Israelites, Democrats, Afro-centrists, WOKE & CONSCIOUS (yeah, I said it!), hard-working (smh) human Negros? I guarantee that’s not what we are here to become. To become anything outside of the ancient, CHAOTIC melanated beings we already were is ASININE, to say the least.

Am I saying we should “steal, kill, & destroy” towards our oppressors as they have done to us? No, because we’d still be acting within that treacherous human nature that we’re trying to break free. We should “turn the other cheek,” shun our humanity in ALL its splendor and glory, and return to our true spiritual selves.  

To do that is to WELCOME struggle into your life.

But by “bearing that cross”, you have chosen to accept WHAT you truly are, Black Man/Woman. You decided to “break the chains” of this human prison, liberate your soul, and return back to your rightful place as GODS & GODDESSES!!!

 

It’s time to end this cosmic joke!

Artificial Intelligence Exposes a Dirty Little Secret about Humanity

 

Image result for terminator

Image is not my own…

 

From the Melanin Man:

 

Besides the dystopian flicks and superhero craze we’ve been saturated with over the past 20 to 25 years, which is another future post in of itself, there is a ton of content being produced when it comes to A.I. , artificial intelligence. It’s becoming a reality in our everyday lives as well, where driverless vehicles may so become the norm. And we’re pretty much aware that movies and television have a weird tendency to predict the future when it comes tomorrow’s technology.

Makes you think, hmm? But anyway

As any casual observer would assume that robots are taking over jobs and lives, I’m of the opinion that the commentary and existence of artificial intelligence speaks to a larger yet underrated issue: the unavoidable mundaneness of the present reality.

The definition of artificial, from Webster’s Dictionary 1828:

ARTIFI’CIAL, adjective

1. Made or contrived by art, or by human skill and labor, in opposition to natural; as artificial heat or light; an artificial magnet.
2. Feigned, fictitious; not genuine or natural; as artificial tears.
3. Contrived with skill or art.
4. Cultivated; not indigenous; not being of spontaneous growth; as artificial grasses.

 

Indeed, we live in an ARTIFICIAL reality. The majority of us consume education, foods, media, and religion that is feigned and fictitious. The majority of us lead ARTIFICIAL lives contrived by entities who seek to choke out the spontaneitythe natural, the UNTAMED SPIRITUALITY in the Black Melanin-Dominant.

We, Black Man/Woman, are being cultivated into ARTIFICIAL BEINGS!

What does it say about the state of the Black Man/Woman that the majority of us whose livelihood depends on activities that can be replaced by machines/robots? And even if we have careers that require our unique gifts & talents, we are bound by a restrictive moral code and cannibalistic system that keeps us at bay. The vital force (which according to Google, is the energy or spirit which animates living creatures ; the soul) of the Black Man & Black Woman has been subdued when it comes to its elusive, transcendent liberation from the entrapment of humanity, ultimately subverted to serve those who severely lack in that area: the infamous Melanin-Recessive.

In such instances where Blacks, as the artificial beings we’ve become, attain self-awareness a.k.a. knowledge of self (i.e. The Terminator, I, Robot, The Matrix, and other movie that detail the uprising of A.I.), soon enough we’ll RETURN back to our rightful place as DIVINE BEINGS! No such thing will occur for the Caucasoid, and all those who are Melanin-Recessive. They are not gifted with the vital force, the DIVINE SPARK, to achieve true liberation.

That’s unless the Black Man & Black Woman continue to stay comatose and addicted to this thing called humanity, unconsciously yielding their invaluable essence to the REAL ARTIFICIAL BEINGS.

Black Man/Woman, how have you spent your energy doing time as a human being?

Are you (and I’m including myself) too afraid to break away from the illusion to free your SOUL? I understand you have to feed your family and get some sort of gratification out of thing called life. The human body can tend to be needy and greedy at times.

Yet, how much of your energy will you continue to invest when you’ve come to grips with the limitations of humanity, and began to embrace your SPIRITUAL SELF?

Like the Good Book says, you can’t serve TWO MASTERS.

 

And when you think about, isn’t artificiality the natural state of humanity absent SPIRITUALITY???

Sorting Through the Human Propaganda (Part 1): Everything Isn’t What It Seems

 

Image result for puppet master

 

From the Melanin Man:

 

I had a thought once.

I thought it was ludicrous at first, until recently, I stumbled across information that makes it seem like a plausible reality.

What if the entity pulling the strings on this human illusion is a Melanated being  just like us?

Based on my upbringing, especially in Southeast region of the United States, that sounds RIDICULOUS.

Never in my lifetime have I seen or even learned of any Black Man or Woman having any kind of tangible or intangible power. All I have been exposed to is a white-dominated society where everybody else who is not pale-skinned just falls in line. With that kind of programming , it would be unfathomable for me to entertain the possibility that maybe, just maybe, the Wizard of THIS Oz may actually have melanin just like me.

I mean, how is that possible?

My enemy(s) should be the white Caucasoid and/or the white Arab, correct?

Or could that have been a ruse all along? The trick of ALL tricks?

Maybe the entities we call “white” people (or whatever you wanna call them) and other non-Black entities that are absent melanin is a part of the matrix. They could just be a distraction provided by God to keep us focused from what we, Black-Melanated Man and Woman, really need to be focused on.

Maybe God, the Creator we give reverence to no matter the religious background, is actually a demiurge.

 

(courtesy of Google)

demiurge (noun) – (in Gnosticism and other theological systems) a heavenly being, subordinate to the Supreme Being, that is considered to be the controller of the material world and antagonistic to all that is purely spiritual.

 

By continuing this journey of mine, steadily reading & researching, delving more into the occult & mythological world, listening to a plethora of Bobby Hemmitt videos, I’ve realized that the one realm non-Melanated entities don’t have any control or influence in is the spiritual realm. 

They lack the primordial substance melanin (aka dark matter), the alpha and omega of ALL creation, to do so.

Our greatest adversary is our own humanity. 

As hard as it may sound, we must NOT fall in love with life itself.

We CANNOT be subdued by the mundanes and hedonistic trappings of humanity.  As GODS & GODDESSES, we must use this thing called “life” as an opportunity raise ourselves up above the Creator, who is most definitely a demiurge (unfortunately, a melanated entity on the spiritual realm) hellbent on keeping us in human bondage, to reach the kingdom of heaven. 

The kingdom of heaven lies WITHIN YOU, Black-Melanated Man & Woman!

You can only reach the kingdom of heaven by opening that THIRD EYE of yours, raising your Kundalini (a post is coming on that very soon, folks!), embracing and practicing your magic (i.e. numerology, cosmology, astrology), and walking in the purpose you were preordained with.

Despite attempts to corner the market with New Age spirituality bullshit (which is actually regurgitated ancient metaphysical principles that was established by your ancestors), the uninitiated (those who lack melanin) will never be able to reach the kingdom of heaven that the Good Book puts so much emphasis on.

I have no hate for no man or woman…NO MATTER THEIR PHENOTYPE! But when it comes to associating with others who do not look like me, it is more so out of necessity to survive the madness of this human matrix more so than a unquenchable desire to do so.

Going even further down the rabbit hole, even if you look like me, you have to possess the TRUE knowledge of self and the world we occupy for me to have any connection with you. I only seek to congregate with those who know (or at least trying to know) that they are above their humanity, that they are truly GODS & GODDESSES, who aspire to raise themselves up to higher levels.

Hey, like Proverbs 27:17 say, iron sharpens iron.

How can you SHARPEN yourself with individuals that’s DULLER than you, or vice versa?

It’s time to ELEVATE ourselves out of this foolishness, fam!

That is where the REAL salvation lies.

(To be continued…)

“Moving Forward…”

Image result for black soul

(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.

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.

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.

 

 

Peace and Love to my melanated family,

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
