Food For Thought: What is Redemption, for real for real?

redemption (n.)
mid-14c., “deliverance from sin,” from Old French redemcion (12c.) and directly from Latin redemptionem (nominative redemptio) “a buying back, releasing, ransoming” (also “bribery”), noun of action from past participle stem of redimere “to redeem, buy back,” from red- “back” (see re-) + emere “to take, buy, gain, procure” (from PIE root *em- “to take, distribute”). The -d- is from the Old Latin habit of using red- as the form of re- before vowels. In the Mercian hymns, Latin redemptionem is glossed by Old English alesnisse.

redeem (v.)

early 15c., “buy back, ransom,” also in a theological sense, “deliver from sin and spiritual death,” from Old French redimer “buy back,” from Latin redimere “to redeem, buy back,” from red- “back” (see re-) + emere “to take, buy, gain, procure” (from PIE root *em- “to take, distribute”). In Middle English Latin redimere sometimes was translated as againbuy. Meaning “make amends for” is from 1520s. Sense of “make good” (a promise, obligation, etc.) is from 1840. Related: Redeemed; redeeming.

Redemption is not saving a soul that has already been saved. To redeem your soul (redemption), is to about “gaining back” your true self, your inner being (soul, chaos) by way of transforming and transcending your specific human condition. The words “redeem, redemption, renew” are code words for the science of alchemy.

Melanated woman/man beings have been have roamed the earth since time immoral and have mastered/”redeemed” humanity a million times over. So why are still here in this material realm?

That’s an honest question.

I mean, we’ve stuck around so long know we’ve been reduced to the role of the “Magical Negro” that made Morgan Freeman so famous in the first place. Are we really still here to assist the melanated-deficient or to be more PC, “melanated- adjacent”?

That’s another legitimate honest question. I wonder….:-)

Food For Thought: Sleep is an Unescorted Furlough to your Real Reality

Image result for sleep
Not my own image

From the Melanin Man:

I “woke” up this morning (sheesh) and had a epiphany that was very centering. Man, it takes a good little minute for your body to “warm up” in the morning, or rather, my soul to get used to being back in a machine after returning from its temporary leave.

After getting my kids off to school and sitting on the couch in the living room commiserating with my wife about knick knack things, I was still in a daze trying to collect myself. Since I don’t have to rush off in the morning to some corporate plantation or some other soul-killing money making racket, I have the opportunity to properly collect myself. That’s a small luxury/ reprieve that many of us take for granted. And it’s an important one.

I can’t see how anyone can call anyone else who doesn’t work and/or does nothing “productive” with their time, who chooses to sit on their ass all day a lazy bum. It actually takes work being a lazy bum. After returning from a realm (sleep, dreaming, the real reality) where you’re basically omnipresent and free to be nowhere and everywhere, NO-THING and EVERY-THING all at once, you come back to a place where you can only use an atom-sized amount of your melanated soul’s infinite abilities in a machine that is programmed to only handle so much at one time.

It took just as much work typing that sentence as it did accepting that reality. That’s a hard pillow to swallow.

So yes, the basics functions of eating and shitting do take effort even if they are SOOOOOO FUCKING MUNDANE! Yeah, ask those individuals who are regularly constipated just how much work they have to give to let out a turd.

Giving away your attention to a TV or a cellphone half the day does take work, even if what you’re watching is some foolishness. It’s hard to focus on any one thing for a long period of time with a soul that is itching to break the chains from a machine that’s so singular.

That’s why I never understood the concept of vacationing. You’re working to take a break from work. REALLY?!

Even traveling the world for kicks and giggles is a chore. Are you really expanding your mind, or are you doing some human shit because you don’t RE-MEMBER that you been there, done that, got a T-shirt and the balloon many other lifetimes ago?

Just how much more being a human do you have to endure before you should move on to the next thing? What is the next thing exactly? Is it set the same for everyone or based off your own imagination? Have I already been there many times over? Does it change a bit after every lifetime I go through?

Just some questions I ask myself that I already know the answer too, but due to my limited perspective in this body and to keep this lifepath a mystery, I (the soul) have to feign ignorance.

Rambling much, ain’t I?! (lol)

For me, at this point after experiencing so many lifetimes already, I have a specific reason for waking up every morning besides the novelty of being a human. It has its plus and minuses, strengths and weaknesses. I will say that humanity does have a unique redeeming quality (not in the “come to Jesus, save your soul” kind of way for you Christian hardheads) that should not be overlooked. You really go through the fire in this place. To me, that is the only meaningful purpose of being human.

But how many times do you need to be redeemed? That really depends on you 🙂

If you’re not “dead”, sleep is your only escape from the contradictory nature of humanity. How come the greatest melanin production occurs at night while you sleep? And some of best sleep I get is right after coitus.

Hmmmm…I wonder why 😉

Melanin=sleep=your only saving grace from the madness!! Ase to my mentor in spirit, Bobby Hemmitt!

Food For Thought: The Hero’s (Heru’s, Horus’) Journey in Human Reality (Part 1)

From the Melanin Man:

What is the Hero’s Journey?

A term popularized by the well-known mythological historian Joseph Campbell, it is the cycle of existence a person endures that leads them through a series of tests and trials which causes a transformation within that person into a new being. The concept of this conflict originated from the Osirian myth of Ancient Kemet, where Horus or Heru (the product of the goddess Isis and the god Osiris, who was murdered by his brother Set before Horus was conceived) was born and claimed the throne from Set.

Sidenote 1: For the Christians out there, combine the story of Cain and Abel with the Jesus mythology, you will have the Osirian myth. The former two derived was derived from the Osirian myth.

The Osirian myth, the basis of the Hero’s (Heru’s) Journey, is a story of rebirth and metamorphosis, basically a narrative on alchemy ( turning something known into something new.) Alchemy (or AlKhemy) was/is the ultimate science that has existed since time inequity, especially when it comes to the evolution of man. The Hero (Heru) archetype has been played out in many alchemical mythological tales such as the adventures of Hercules and Persius, the Great Renunciation of Buddha, the aforementioned “life” ( figurative not literal) and crucifixion of Jesus Christ, as well comic greats Batman and Superman, and movie fixtures such as Bruce Leroy (The Last Dragon, my favorite) and Neo of The Matrix. The archetype has even been portrayed in video game classics such as Super Mario Brothers (pictured above.)

If you are familiar with Mario, you know that playing as Mario you will go through a series of transformations (from small Mario to Big Mario with eating the mushroom, intaking the magical flower to turn into fireball or Rising Kundalini Mario, etc.), fight off numerous underlings (goombas and Koopa Troopas) and underbosses to get to Bowser to save the Princess. You are also familiar with the fact that you can “die and be reborn”, where hopefully you learned not to repeat the same mistakes from the “previous life,” because if not, you have start all over again from the beginning (which at this point you call it night and thus not play the game again for a couple of weeks because you’re so demoralized smh.) Super Mario Brothers truly epitomizes the Hero’s Journey to a T.

So esoterically, comparing to Super Mario Brothers, what does the Heru’s Journey look like for the everyday souls of the melanated (chaos, cosmic) man and woman?

The Heru’s Journey for the melanated soul, for those who are aware (conscious) of the challenge, consists of daily “trials by fire” (Kundalini Energy) that challenge the (un)realities of paradigms and archetypes we were programmed with from our incarnation into the earthly realm.

Sidenote 2: As a Black man or woman, what are the usual paradigms and archetypes one must overcome in this day and age?

The melanated soul who wishes to ascend the human cycle must release (detach) from its programming with a open heart and mind, realizing that the ego self it was born with is not its TRUE SELF. This is early stages of the Rising or Awakening Kundalini Energy, which in short, is the melanated soul awakening from its slumber (the coma that is humanity.) At this point, the melanated soul, the true representation of God(dess), understands and even accepts the different realities of existence and that its path back home is only one of many. The melanated soul then realizes its true purpose and gains a greater appreciation for the ego self it has chosen to manifest itself within the earthly realm. At this point, the melanated soul knows that it is its own Creator. Once its purpose has been fulfilled, the melanated soul will have conquered the Great Dragon (or serpent), which represents the ascension of the soul from base of the human spine (which resembles the shape of a snake or serpent) in the pelvic area into the Pineal Gland or Third Eye (“the gateways of Heaven”, the doorway to the real world.)

See the resemblance? (Art taken from Pinterest)

Through death (or, “the return back to life”), the melanated soul has “rescued the Princess”, or returned back to its Source (The Great Mother), a fully-transformed, new kind of chaos being.

And that’s the Heru’s Journey for the typical mundane melanated man/woman in a nutshell.

I can understand why it can take a couple of thousand lifetimes to get back home. It’s very easy for the soul to be duped into thinking that it is its earthly self, thus passing its karma from lifetime to lifetime. That’s just more junk for the soul to go through to get out of the human cycle.

For the hardcore Christians out there, there’s a subconscious, metaphysical reason why you’re so attached to Jesus Christ the Savior. The Jesus myth (remember, Jesus is Horus) is all about the Christ energy. Letting go of the physical realm, embracing the spiritual self is the major teaching point of that ordeal. Your soul is the “Christ that has risen.”

Ouroboros symbol, the serpent consuming itself which symbolized rebirth or renewal (from Wikipedia)

Chrysopoeia (which chryso is derived from Christ), is the alchemical term that means “transmutation into gold.” That is the Christ energy (also the Kundalini energy), the alchemical process your melanated soul undergoes when it is ready break the human cycle.

What Would You Do?

Please stop taking Jesus literally, y’all.

Now, there are some loose ends to this post that needs to tied up? Like, who or what is the Great Mother? Since the soul resides within the pelvic region of the human body, how much does sex play in the soul’s ascension to the Third Eye?

That’s what the next post proceeding this will touch on. Until then, continue to be the Creator in your world.

Peace and Love,

Food for Thought: Detaching from Black-African Romanticism

 

Image result for detachment

(Picture is not my own)

 

From the Melanin Man:

When I first came into the knowledge concerning Black history, I mean the real Black history, it was a marvelous and uplifting realization. Throughout my life, I’ve always had a sublime awareness that there was more to the people of African descent than what was presented to the public, yet until the last six or seven years I was ignorant of the many resources that were (still are!) hidden that told of the many different ways the Black-Melanated Man and Woman created and ruled the earth since time immoral. When I started reading some of the material, it didn’t feel like I was learning anything totally new. It felt like I was re-minding myself of what I had forgotten through systemic brainwashing or coming back through the birth canal for the umpteenth time (which may be where the brainwashing actually occurs.)

Although the feeling of knowing my true ancestral worth was (is!) exhilarating, deep down I knew I wasn’t going to stay there for long. I knew the desire of wanting to restore the favor of the Black collective on this planet, promoted by so many Pan-Africans and those of us who long for that to reoccur, would fade over time. One thing I’ve known about myself forever, something that I take pride in, is that I continue to learn to prevent from staying stagnant mentally. So it was only a matter of time before I would grow out of the “remembering our glorious past and returning back to our rightful place as kings and queens.”  Learning about the inner self and how to master it, Kundalini, spirits and rituals, esoteric knowledge on melanin, alchemy opened another world that has brought life full circle for me. And even with that, it will serve its purpose and I will continue to move forward and learn even more about the world around me but most importantly, me.

Which finally brings me to the point of this post…don’t get too attached to the glorious past of the Black Man/Woman.

There was a reason why our ancestors fell. And there’s NO reason why you need to concern yourself about returning back to your place on the earthly throne. This physical realm is not (and never was) our place of refuge, although we are its rightful  ruler and creators. This is a testing ground for light beings (melanated individuals that have souls) to learn and grow so they can ascend to far greater realities than what exists on this plane. At some point we got too comfortable down here and decided to keep this thing going, fearing the unknown after death (we’ve forgotten so much to the point that we forgot we’re not FROM EARTH.)  Without getting into the specifics of Gnostic teachings concerning demiurges and archons, one of the biggest tricks that is used to keep us recirculating (i.e. reincarnation) on this physical realm is BLACK ROMANTICISM, returning to our glorious past!

The time that our ancestors had in the sun is over and done with. It served its purpose as a symbol for future generations of melanated light beings to understand the REAL REASON of why they are incarnated or have reincarnated back on earth. A physical return to Black glory was never the objective. The transformation was meant to occur  within (a.k.a. spiritual alchemy; also look up chrysopoeia) each melanated light being  when it was their time to achieve such transformation.

For some, it may take only one or maybe a just few lifetimes. For others, it could thousands. It depends. Roaming the earth as your Ancient Egyptians once did should not be YOUR PURPOSE for being here.

There is no meaning to humanity outside of spiritual transformation. And what better way to do that in humbling your-self through the human experience? Where routine and repetition is HELL! And what is the three (3) most GUARANTEED repetitive things we do as a human being???

Eat. Shit. AND SLEEP!

Yeah, sex is wonderful and all that. That is until you get older and you realize how much WORK you have to put into, and your little friend doesn’t stay lubricated or erected like in those youthful years.

 

Take pride of where and what you came from, Black-Melanated Man/Woman. But don’t get caught up in it. It’s just a tool for the REAL CHANGE that takes place within your soul.

 

 

Peace and Love,

The Melanin Man

 

 

Food for Thought: The Money Stress

From The Melanin Man:

I’ve lived in only one country in my life, the glorious (lol!) United States of America. So I can only make the following assessment concerning society’s “rules of interaction” based off that fact alone:

“If you’re not making money, you’re spending money, and nine times out of ten, you are participating more in the latter than the former.”

I’ve been fiddling with this assessment for a couple of months, and I’m willing to say it’s a hard truth that many of us do not want to acknowledge or accept.

This is not another post about how you should be focused on balancing productive nature against your consumption.

I wanted to focus on how our this reality shapes our interactions with one another. Our time (a figment of our imagination that is used in place of the only quantity that can’t be quantified, ENERGY) has been monopolized by the almighty dollar. Everything is for sale; nothing is free or guaranteed despite what they tell you. But that’s not the sad part. What’s truly sad is that if you’re not spending money, you better be figuring out a way to be making it. You better figure out a career or some sort of side hustle to keep the cash flow coming.

Rest?

It does not exist in the good ole U.S. of A. Despite the lies they told us, that slavery ended? It never did. It just changed form. It’s called the light bill, the water bill, the cellphone bill, the internet/cable bill, student loans, et cetera, et cetera, ET CETERA! Our minds are tragically being stretched and strained, trying to figure out how to maintain our own personal version of the AMERICAN NIGHTMARE…I mean the “American Dream.”

You don’t have the opportunity to focus on the REAL you, the spiritual you, when your mind is occupied  with basic survival. You can’t focus on spiritual healing and growth when there is so much NOISE AND CHAOS in your mind geared toward just making it through the day. And NOISE AND CHAOS is what America specializes on so many levels.

Unbeknownst to the masses, divinity lies in silence. 

(Hence, the rise of faux New Age meditation.)

The purpose of an authentic spiritual man/woman should not be swayed or influenced by its external environment. Their lifestyle would be geared toward realizing the purpose they were bequeath with. The truly spiritual man/woman does not necessarily shun luxury and convenience, but they do no seek it either, for they know that it keeps them bound to their humanity, which is ultimately a prison for the soul. How ironic it is that spirituality is absent from the American spirit. The aim of the American spirit is to feed the human nature of the masses, keeping them blind to the TRUTH.

America, at her core, shuns the idle and unmotivated of its collective. The cycle of  capitalism must continue to proceed, and those who do not and/or not able to participate are looked upon as dregs of society. The prevailing thought is that most dregs are either Black and brown, the bulk of that being Black. It is my belief that the Black Man/Woman in America, in spite of their ignorance on a collective scale, is the utmost spiritual being on Earth.

And you know why.

There are more in depth reasons as well, which at some point I will address.

At some point you would think that America (which is looked upon as the modern-day Rome) will take a hard look at the one group of people that basically built the country, from its infrastructure to its culture from religion to cuisine, for the solutions to the issues it has been plagued with. I’m sorry, I forgot, America is not interested in solutions.

DISTRACTION is its game.

To my Black brethren and sisters who wish to break out of the survival game, don’t let the money stress keep you from a living out your purpose on this earthly place. The cycle of spending and making money has nothing to do with your spiritual journey. Money, if you are able to have a substantial amount of it, should only be a tool to have more experiences to learn and grow from to ascend spirituality. Don’t get comfortable with money or fear that you may lose it.

Doing that is a sign that you’re not ready to move on from your human shell.

 

 

Peace and Love to 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 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!

Image result for Thanos

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!

 

 

Peace and Love to my melanated family,
