We Are Vodun/Voodoo Spirit

newafrikan77

#OldestOnEarth Spirit! Voodoo (Vodun) is a derivative of the world’s oldest known religions which have been around in Africa since the beginning of human civilization.
___

The word “voodoo” comes from the West African word “vodun,” meaning spirit. This Afro-Caribbean religion mixed practices from many African ethnics groups such as the Fon, the Nago, the Igbo, Dahomeans, Congos , Senegalese, Haussars, Caplaous, Mondungues, Mandinge, Angolese, Libyans, Ethiopians, and the Malgaches.

Within the voodoo society, there are no accidents. Practitioners believe that nothing and no event has a life of its own. That is why “vous deux”, you two, you too. The universe is all one. Each thing affects something else. Scientists know that. Nature knows it. Many spiritualists agree that we are not separate, we all serve as parts of One. So, in essence, what you do unto another, you do unto you, because you ARE the other. Voo…

42 Principles of Maat 2000 years before Ten Commandments

True Strange Library

The Ten Commandments, eight of them at least, were taken from the Egyptian Principles of Ma’at written at least 2000 years earlier.

180px-maatsvg.png Written at least 2,000 years before the Ten Commandments of Moses, the 42 Principles of Ma’at are one of Africa’s, and the world’s, oldest sources of moral and spiritual instruction. Ma’at, the Ancient Egyptian divine Principle of Truth, Justice, and Righteousness, is the foundation of natural and social order and unity. Ancient Africans developed a humane system of thought and conduct which has been recorded in volumes of African wisdom literature, such as, these declarations from the Book of Coming Forth By Day (the so-called Book of the Dead), The Teachings of Ptah-Hotep, the writings of Ani, Amenemope, Merikare, and others.

One aspect of ancient Egyptian funerary literature which often is mistaken for a codified ethic of Ma’at is Chapter 125 of the Book of the Dead

Once Upon a Time.

Overcoming Pain

Your situation does NOT define who you are. I found that many people always wait for situations to change. Oh when I loose weight, I can dress better. When I make more money I can go on holiday, I don’t know but have you every heard those kind of things being said? I have. I hate it. For a while I was that person, I thought when I loose weight I can do this. When I have this, I will do that. When this happens, I will do this.

I am back, I am back to that person that understands, that my job as woman of God is to be the best that I can be. God did not design me, perfectly crafted me for me to live a life that is bound by illness, and circumstances. I was perfectly MADE, for greatness. That greatness is here right now. If…

Find what works for you

Do you know you are unique? You were made the same way as the person next to you or your spouse not partner. You were made uniquely different for a purpose…for a reason. With that said it should easy to say that what makes you tick may not be the same thing that makes your friends, family members or spouse tick. You have to find what works for you. And once you do it compliments what works with others. It’s not the same thing but trust me it works. 

I’ll tell you story. David was a Shepard, Saul was a worrier. When it came to the battle withGoliath  Saul gave his amor and sword to David to use. It did not fit him. He was a teen and Saul was a man. The amor and crown Saul used worked for him but not Divad. What worked for Daivd was his sling and nibble feet. That’s how he defeated Goliath. Had he used Sauls amor and sword we would be hearing a different story. 

So my point is this you are made (woven) differently from the next and what works for you may not work for another. So find that one thing that works just for you. And the sky will be the limit.  

White People: Shut Up About Beyoncé

Bitter Gertrude

After the release of her game-changing, brilliant video, Formation, and the stir her Superbowl halftime show caused with dancers dressed like Black Panthers, Beyoncé is blowing up everyone’s feeds everywhere. And one thing I am shocked/notshocked to see is white outrage about both.

Let me begin by saying that I’m not a Beyoncé fan. I’m not a fan of any of the pop divas. I don’t have anything against them; it’s just not music that interests me. So Lady Gaga, Beyoncé, Madonna, Mariah, Adele, I apologize, but I’m sure you and your massive success could not possibly care less that I would rather be listening to punk or classical. The only reason I’m pointing this out is to make sure you know I’m not a Beyoncé fan. This is not about defending a beloved star.

Let me tell you what it IS about.

The vast majority of Black people…
