Afrikan Renewal: Simple Formula
We sometimes ignore the simple lessons of life and embrace complexities dictated by others. In doing so, we put ourselves at a disadvantage. Change is crucial.
We must begin to learn to ‘read’ and ‘write’. We must communicate, co-operate, collaborate and prepared to make meaningful sacrifices to achieve just and lasting objectives. The Pendulum is coming back. The Circle is complete.
We must respect differences among us. These are our strengths. Criticism without solution can lead to demoralisation and destructions of individuals and even organisations.
One of the first mass action needed before Afrikans, at home and abroad, realise real and progressive community development, is to undo the final chains within, by stopping drinking from the same cup and eating from the same bowl, with those who unceasingly frustrate our historical, contemporary, and future development.
Now is the time to accelerate being Ourselves and not an imitation of others. And if we don’t know Self, search for it. You will recognise it when you found it. Learn to listen to the messages of your cosmic melaninated DNA. Liberate your Intuitions.
We must re-learn how to share land, wealth and work hard to realise real community development, on the basis of SELF-HELP, avoiding always unproductive dogmas, elitism – spirituality and secularity, imbalanced emotions, personality cults and the politics of envy.
We must recognise that, those who experienced injustices and indignities, they are stakeholders, who gained the right to add value to Collective Solutions. Each has a place in the Circle to make her/his contribution. We must not talk of LOVE for one another, without demonstrating Love’s qualities.
We must not invoke the Great Life Sustaining Spirit of the MOST HIGH, without realising that the Eternal Unfathomable Energy Source, The Combination of Many, is NOT on our Team, but part of all the teams and all the teams are part of It.
That our individual support for those we choose, those we ignore and those we reject, is immaterial to the Whole, except for our own individual responsibility, for our own actions; and not for those actions made by others on our behalf.
As individuals, we experience levels of energies. Others may be experiencing more or less of the same. We are at different levels of consciousness and humility; but not at a level of inferiority, as that level may not exist.
Feed your minds as you feed your bodies; not with ‘fast foods and fast knowledge’; but wholesome foods and right knowledge. Take charge of your health.
Keep an open mind. Don’t be afraid to put aside old cherished values, when discovered that they were falsehoods. Avoid conceit and hypocrisy.
Be aware of those who call you ‘brother, sister and friend’, who had not demonstrated consistent and lasting brotherly, sisterly and friendly deeds.
Identify and respect your enemies, and avoid false sense of security, complacency and defeat.
You have won. You survived. You need to organise and collect The Prize. A victory without The Prize generates a sense of despair and defeat.
