My Egyptian (Kemetian) Excursion-Part 2

IMG_20191221_135735

From the Melanin Man:

I’m glad I brought along the book Wonderful Ethiopians of the Ancient Cushite Empire by Drusilla Dunjee Houston to read during the trip. I’ve had the book almost a year without reading it, but I picked the right time to start while cruising the Nile. The chapters on Ancient Egypt (Kemet) resonated as I was able to see some of the cities and temples firsthand that were referenced in the book. This book is an excellent reference piece when you are able to actually visit places like Egypt, Persia, and India.

Due to current world politics, I probably won’t be able to make it out the land of Ancient Persia (where Iraq, Iran, and Afghanistan reside.) I guarantee I will make it out to India before I’m forty.

Sailing down (up!) the Nile from Luxor, I could not help but to admire that scenery surrounding the river and the beautiful weather during this time of the year. Palm trees of a different breed I’ve never seen before. Local farmers and livestock peacefully going about their daily activities. Papyrus reeds scattered along the river’s shores. The air was fresh and clean and was nary a cloud in the air (I didn’t see a plane in the air spraying chemtrails for once.) It’s amazing that a good part of Egypt doesn’t see rain but only once every five to seven years, and it’s only a light rain that evaporates by the time it hits the ground! Even with the desert within a mile or less of the river, it reminded me of a paradise from a long forgotten time. I frequently daydreamed visions of donning Egyptian (Kemetian) attire as if I was a high priest or royal prince in the golden age of Black glory.

It felt like I returned home. Especially when one of the other tour guides I met on the ship greeted me with a “Welcome Home.” AND with the countless merchants and panhandlers hounding me to buy (“Only One Dolla”, “Buy, Buy!”) their products, trying to massage my ego by calling me  brother, cousin, or by saying that I look Egyptian. I admit my ego was massaged, but I didn’t “buy.”

Along the way to Aswan, we stopped in Kom Ombo to visit the Kom Ombo temple which was insightful to say the least. During the visit we learned how the Ancient Kemetians began to honor the crocodile as gods to protect themselves from crocodile attacks (which there are none currently in that part of the Nile thankfully.)

In the adjoining gift shop, I found this wonderful sculpture of the God Min that impressed so I had to acquire. It spoke to my soul.

The God Min statue

Side note 1: Min shares many similarities to the Greek God Pan, who is also a fertility god. Pan is also the basis for the Baphomet symbol, which the uninitiated associate with the Devil. An intriguing connection. 

Side note 2: The food that was prepared on the cruise was some of the tastiest, yet light food I ever had in my life. Three meals a day (breakfast, lunch, and dinner), which I definitely don’t do back at “home” in the States, was served and the food didn’t feel taxing to my body. Bowel movements were consistent and frequent (TMI I know lol.) Crops are raised with natural fertilizer from the water buffalo and the cow minus the pesticides and insecticides. From my knowledge no preserved food was prepared, everything was prepared within a day or two of  being farmed. I couldn’t help but think how screwed we are back in the States.

IMG_20191221_190726.jpg

I know it’s Lamb, falafel, and potatoes on the plate. All of it was good!!!

From Kom Ombo we arrived in Aswan, which if you ignore the older buildings of the skyline, is one of the most beautiful cities I’ve ever visited. It had a different vibe, a relaxing vibe than the other cities I had been to in Egypt. It seemed like the sun shined brighter in Aswan; my stress levels were at all time low. Maybe it was all the felucca boats that sailed the river that gave the setting a serene feel. Maybe it was the ethnic makeup of Aswan that got me feeling super duper comfortable. The further we sailed down (up!) the Nile River, the darker the people became, the less Arab and more African the region is (I’ll explain momentarily.)

Our time in Aswan was the best part of the trip. We visited the High Dam, which is ten times longer and five times wider than the Hoover Dam! It was a marvel to behold.

We took a boat ride to Philae Temple, which had an incredible view as we arrived on the island. Due to constant flooding of the Nile, the temple was moved to its current location on higher ground after the construction of High Dam in the 1960s.

We stopped by a perfume shop as well, which gave us a demonstration on glass-blowing perfume bottles and the perfumes itself. The shop gave a exhibition of their perfume-making procedures and explained how their perfumes are used as the base for the major perfume/cologne sellers in the world, e.g. Old Spice, Tommy Hilfiger. They claimed that one or two drops of their perfumes could be added to a small bottle of water and transform it to a usable vial of perfume. Yeah, the sales pitch got me and some of my tour mates. I bought four 60 ml of four different perfumes for about $170 bucks. We’ll see if their claim is accurate; if not, you live and your learn. I gotta hand it to them, their marketing skills is on point.

We also visited a ancient quarry that had an unfinished obelisk. Pretty amazing considering the fact that the tools that were used to shape the obelisk from the stone was granite.  There was a crack in the obelisk, so that may have been the reason it was not finished by the ancient quarrymen.

Then, we took another plane ride from Aswan to the Abu Simbel Temple, which has to be the most stunning and unbelievable achievement by man I’ve ever seen with my human eyes. Completed during Ramses II reign for his wife Nefertari (not Nefertiti.) The temple and it’s four sitting Pharaohs, which one of them is partially destroyed, were cut into the stone. The temple originally was located within the boundary of Lake Nasser, one of the largest man-made lakes in the world, and was moved to higher ground to prevent it from being flooded under the lake. I’ll be honest, the entrance of the temple is the only part of the temple worth seeing, whereas inside of the temple the hieroglyphics were not impressive whatsoever. For some reason it didn’t match the glyphs from the earlier temples we had already visited. It was the first and only depictions of war that we saw during the entire time. According to my tour guide, Ramses II, which was oddly  mentioned frequently throughout the trip, was the infamous Pharaoh in the Exodus saga in the Bible. Very interesting.

I wouldn’t be surprised if part of the Abu Simbel Temple was altered after the fact.

Upon returning to Aswan, we made a 20-minute boat ride to a nearby Nubian village. This part of our trip was the most enriching part of the entire trip.

Fun Fact: Aswan sits on the edge of the Nubian region (Nubia means gold), which extends well into modern-day Sudan. Ancient Egypt (Kemet) derived its origin from Nubia, which was also the site of the Ancient Kushite Kingdom. There are just as many pyramids  in modern-day Sudan as there are in Egypt that are not broadcasted to the public. The Nubian people are the darker Black-African race, the ones that look like some of my own family members and loved ones in the States! Back in ancient times even up to modern times, it was a unwritten rule for Nubians not to marry or procreate outside of their kind. If that rule was broken, the offending party would practically be disowned by the family, according to Wonderful Ethiopians of the Ancient Cushite Empire. 

The village was very colorful with various paintings on the walls that were very unique. The architecture of the Nubian village is slightly different with the Nubian vault roof which is a curved surface. The Nubian home we visited was an open-air home with floor of sand, which is used to keep the home cool and to track wildlife such as scorpions, snakes, foxes, etc. The home had running water, bathrooms with toilets and showers (no hole in the ground setup), and the kitchen had a refrigerator and stove powered by gas. It was more modern than I anticipated, although the fact it was open-air was a sign the inhabitants were not that far removed from their roots, from nature. The Nubian family also had a couple of crocodiles in the home to honor them and for good luck, just as the Ancient Egyptians (Kemetians) did. I learned that within a Nubian family, when a Nubian man marries a Nubian woman, they move into the bride’s mother’s home and the home extended horizontally. It is in contrast with Egyptians of today, which is now based on Arab influence, where an newly wed Egyptian bride and groom move into the groom’s father’s home and the home is extended vertically. African, Black society has been matriarchal throughout eternity whereas Arab and European has attempted to be patriarchal with devastating consequences to the African, Black, melanated races (reference The Destruction of Black Civilization by Chancellor Williams.)

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!

 

 

Peace and Love to my melanated family,

The Melanin Man

The hiatus is over!

 

I haven’t written in so long I have dust on the keyboard haha.

I have to admit, a lot has happened.

I finally managed to have Volume 1 of my memoir “The Chronicles of a Southern Black Alkhemist” published (if anyone is interested in a copy, send me a shout out on my email address themelanatedman86@gmail.com). I haven’t broadcasted on social media like I should only because social media is not my thang, but I’m still debating on that. Plus, I’m not too concerned about making a buck on my book, only focused on sharing my experience in hopes that someone can benefit from it.

My mind has evolved even more since my last post, which, if you haven’t checked it out, was a snippet of the direction my thought process was heading. For better or worse, I have become completely numb to the happenings of the world when it comes to my emotions.

It doesn’t affect me when Trump does and says dumb shit that riles up the sheep.

It doesn’t move me when Facebook and other social media outlets ban “revolutionary” entities from their platforms because they are allegedly stirring up drama.

And  dare I say it, I’m NOT worried about my Black brethren overcoming their dilapidated economic state,  eating healthy food or having the best health, getting shot and killed like dogs in the street, or anything else that’s put on the news to shock, distract, and confuse.

I know in my heart that there are bigger, unseen things in play that are greater the things we are TOLD to believe are important.  Nothing on this physical plan matters, nor does it exist or it ever has existed. The only thing that should matter to those of us Black-Melanated Beings is to LIBERATE yourself and others from this illusion of life, the struggle to overcome your humanity to return back your GODHOOD. And I’ve sort of mentioned this before, about the direction I’m headed in; I want to make it clear just so there won’t be any confusion.

I had my time talking about importance of health for Black folk, and it was good and therapeutic.

I did my due diligence in discussing and dissecting traumatic events that have occurred and CONTINUE to occur in the Black community.

And I’ve had so much fun promoting Black pride and Black love. Now I feel in my heart like it’s time to step my game up, move on to next stage.

Never…Get…COMFORTABLE!

I actually debated with myself about returning to blogging, hence part of the reason I haven’t posted in months.  I’ve had the urge to write a post so many times the past couple of months. I’m starting to actually believe that people, especially my generation the infamous Millennials, don’t read anymore. Most folks don’t have attention spans longer than 120 characters!! And I know it’s by design. But still?!  In a day and age where information is more readily available ever before in human history just by the swipe of their thumb, people are too busy or too lazy to learn themselves.

Why waste my time writing and sharing knowledge when people choose to remain ignorant?  I realized was getting more concerned about the quantity of individuals who came across my information than the quality.

I have to constantly remind myself that my efforts are not in vain, that it’s not about awakening the masses of Black people. Plus I love to write, and I have to remember that I should be using that gift to awaken those precious few who are TRULY seeking KNOWLEDGE OF SELF minus their ego. If only one reader understands where I’m coming from and we’re in agreement, that’s fine by me. Look, less than 1% of the population controls the inner workings of the known world.

Whoever said you needed the masses on board to create change? We only need a few to make things?

But the question is, on what plane of existence should we actually making a change?

Hopefully not the one that LITERALLY doesn’t exist.

 

The Melanin Man is officially back in effect! Let’s get it!

 

 

 

Peace and Love to my Melanated family,

You know who I am!!!

 

Melanin: Our Key to Life

Props to Blackseeddiet, via Kushite Prince, for sharing this information…

Melanin2....

Melanin is Carbon and is more than just skin pigmentation as how it is mostly acknowledged today; it is our body’s operating system. It is responsible for all functions that are executed by our body. Regardless of what advantage or problem that exists will be traced back to the state of Melanin in our body. Meaning, if we have high level of Melanin and properly nourished then we will be benefited tremendously as a result. On the other side we will be at a disadvantage as a result of the opposite effect. Melanin is the most studied discovery in the current science world.
Throughout history it as always been the main focus and most acknowledged for infinite reasons. As oppose to the ancient worlds, today Melanin becomes a topic of secrecy. Why? Mainly because not all of us stands at the advantage of having sufficient Melanin. Nevertheless, Melanin is profoundly…

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.

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,

BLACKMAN-BLACKWOMAN Series: Black Men, Where Do We Go From Here?

From the Melanin Man:

 

I’ve been meaning to push to post out now for a couple weeks, but been sidetracked with my mundane work tasks lol. It may be my birthday today (yay!) but I’ve been needing to get this post off my chest, so…

(Side note: Plus, let’s be real. If the current calendar had never been concocted by the powers-that-be, we would never know when our birthdays would be. Is it really that big of a deal? lol )

I wrote  about the  importance of our women, now it’s time to focus on the Black Man.

 

 

 

To my Black brothers from other mothers, I have to be honest with you…

We are the walking dead!

And I’m not just talking about those of us who are in jail, unemployed, deadbeat husbands and fathers, or whatever label the media places on us.

I’m talking about the ENTIRE LOT of us. Even the very small few of us who are succeeding, according to European standards, are fading away as well.

Ask yourself this question, Black Man: Are you REALLY the head of your household when you’re respecting the rules and regulations put in place by another species of man? When will we realize that we can’t break away from those who don’t care for us if they are the ones educating, employing, clothing, and feeding us?  

No wonder  the  majority of our Black Women have lost respect for us, Black Man, consciously and subconsciously. Whether or not we’re living in the household.

Who told us and set the standard for what a legal marriage should be?

Who gives us the two thumbs up when we decide choose to divorce?

Who do our women run to in order to receive child support and alimony from?

For me personally, the more I see the bullshit, the more I realize I’m NOT the man I want or need to be! Black Man, we need to create our own reality, a reality that will benefit the welfare of our women and children.

 

 

We should NOT mimic a man who is quite honestly physically, mentally, and spiritually inferior to the Black Man in every way.

WE should NOT place the protection and security of that reality within the womb of a woman who is NOT the original woman on the planet, the Black Woman.

(Another side note: Even at a young age, my mama would tell me, “You betta not bring no white gurl to my house.” Funny thing is, my mama is not nearly as conscious as I am today. She’s a Christian woman through and through lol. But she was aware enough to make such a statement.  I could never understand how a self-proclaimed woman of God could say such a thing.

But as I gotten older, I get it. No matter how much the media tries to brainwash us, nature is nature. If you are of nature, you want to be with your own.

Annnnnnd, it made me realize how much of a farce religion truly is. )

 

Black Man, bottom line, you are NOT EQUAL to your white, Caucasoid counterpart! For those of you who disagree, I don’t apologize. You can call me prejudice, racist, or flat out a bigot. This is how I see it, and there ain’t nothing going to change that.

So what should we aspire to be, brethren?

When you carry the God-particle (MELANIN!), you are suppose to express yourself and reality as such: in a GOD-FORM!!  That may sound preposterous, even borderline pompous and arrogant to many of us quite frankly.

But do your research. It’s TRUTH!

What is God?

I don’t believe in that superhero, -miracle-working human archetype, birthed from the Westernized, European frame of mind. That’s how the white, Caucasoid mindset perceives it, and want the masses to perceive it.

In my opinion, God is boundless and unlimited in its creativity, thinking, and expression. God is chaotic, ungovernable by external forces, yet composed, calm, and self-assured. God is omnipresent in every nook and cranny of nature and the universe.

You are essentially God in the human form , Black Man, according to your own unique talents and gifts.

Black Men, by accepting that reality, we unlock the GOD (or GODDESS lol) that is within the Black Woman. That gives her the opportunity to materialize ourselves, through her own talents and gifts, on this plane of human existence. Although we shouldn’t be looking at a two dimensional television screen in the first place, there’s a reason there’s an extreme dearth of Black Man-Black Woman relationships portrayed in a positive light on the screen. The Black Man-Black Woman relationship  will destroy this reality as we know it.

Yet the more they promote  the “We Are All Equal” message, interracial marriages, integration, etc., the wheels keep rolling on.

We’ve ALLOWED the powers-that-be to do unimaginable things to neuter and control our God nature. From the death foods,  restrictive religion and unimaginative spirituality, to the train-to-serve-Massa style of education and the mundane joy-killing life routines, we really are DEAD MEN WALKING!

I’ll give you an example, by way of a close friend of mine: For those of you who still frequent church , I want you to do an observation. Check out whose  doing most of the work in the church. Is it the men or the women? And on any given Sunday, check out the body language of the men versus the women during service? Who’s into the message more so than the other?

The Black Woman is game, guys. She’s indeed LIT, waiting for that spark **wink wink**. In spite of the wave of new age feminism and the “I Don’t Need a Man” foolishness, nonetheless, Black women who have the desire to express true  womanhood have no problem following the leadership of a man. They’re just following  the wrong man, consciously and subconsciously. And it’s killing them on ALL LEVELS (a great reference to check out on this matter is “The Wounded Womb” by Dr. Phil Valentine.) If there is ONE reason the Black Woman shouldn’t be in the workplace (besides the fact that it goes against her nature as a woman)  it is that Black Men (those who are Black-minded) can’t really protect her from the stresses of a white male-dominated workplace (e.g. sexual harassment) considering its NOT  a domain he created.

 

 

With the way I think now, I can honestly say that there are not ANY Black Men, peer or elder, in my life that I know personally who has the ability to stand on their own two feet, including myself, absent the assistance of the white male in any fashion. I know men who have parts to them that are valid and resonate with me tremendously, but they, we, are not WHOLE as men, still operating by the whims of colonizers.

That’s how I see it.

I accept the possibility that I may never experience total liberation as a Black Man in my lifetime. But that won’t keep me from trying.

It’s what I strive for now…as a Black Man.

Because in my heart of hearts, there is nothing else worth living for…as a Black Man!

 

 

I hope there are a few of you out there, my Black brethren, that share that same sentiment.

 

 

Peace and Love to my melanated family,

The Melanin Man

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

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

Article  posted on Waking Times (click link for original)

“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.

“You have to take seriously the notion that understanding the universe is your responsibility, because the only understanding of the universe that will be useful to you is your own understanding.” ~Terence McKenna
