WE   MUST   RETURN   TO   OUR   AFRICAN   SPIRITUALITY

AKWAABA/WELCOME This site is dedicated to giving presently unpopular but badly needed information for Afrikan people around the world who may be disillusioned w/ organized european religions altogether & don't know where to go and/or Afrikans who are being led back Home spiritually but don't know where to start or continue. All people who think, live, and feel like we do know we are at least 5-7 generations ahead of our time, esp. w/ this spiritual re-awakening, however we must be dilligent, not letting that info stop us. We must give our traditional systems a voice so they can reascend onto the world stage after the bankrupt systems finally lose steam. It has already been written that we--traditional Afrikans--will win this thing... we must have the courage in the face of crazy opposition to go forward, call upon pristine Mother Afrika & work accordingly. In any way that this site can help, it is the Bakulu's blessings. Medase! PLEASE BOOKMARK -CONTROL D- THIS SITE. !!! The resource & information capacity of this site is about to ..... please stay tuned!


Before the Maafa (the African enslavement process), us Africans were practising our OWN INDIGENOUS spiritual systems. We created names for the Creator such as KATONDA (Uganda) ASHE , MUSIKI (Zimbabwe) ASHE , NZAMBI MPUNGU (Angola) ASHE, MWIN (Burkina Faso)ASHE, AUSAR, AUSET, DJEHUTY, PTAH, MA'AT, etc.(ancient Kemet(egypt)) ASHE, ULIMWENGU (Swahili term)ASHE, RANGE (Kenya)ASHE, CHUKWU (Nuer people)ASHE, OLUDUMARE, OLORUN (Ifa (Yoruba tradition))ASHE, KLE (Bambara)... ASHE the list goes on ad infinitum. Before the Maafa, we had rituals, ceremonies, holy days which gave reverence to these Creative forces as well as to the ancestral realm and those yet to be born. We were/are a holistic people. Then the savage, barbaric, brutish, hateful, bad-smellin', non-spiritual caucasoids/europeans came and destroyed our NATURAL way of life and continued to do what the hateful arabs had done--continued to give us FOREIGN, ALIEN GODS. And they also laughed at and eventually made us laugh at and hate our Creator, in our image, venerated OUR WAY.

WE MUST RETURN TO OUR ORIGINAL WAYS OF VENERATION IF THE POWERS OF THE UNIVERSE ARE EVER TO BE IN OUR FAVOR AGAIN!!!
The traditions of our Ancestors WILL once again be lifted up and we will shout their names aloud as we liberate ourselves and the future so those before us can look upon us and SMILE!!! AKERA!!!

African   Centered   Discussions

(ONLY THOSE SERIOUS READ "BLACK AGENDA BEYOND THE YEAR 2000!!!"

6246 AFK... well.... When re-viving one's historical consciousness, one has to place themselves back in the stream of time of their most remote origins, or- AS BEING ARGUED NOW, the time of their most "written/documented" remote origins- and move FORWARD in time. By CONNECTING with the stream of their Ancestors, they, who are "out for" the inherent good of the group, open the timeless "encyclopedia of human endeavors/experiences & wisdom" to them which is far older than the euro CAN EVEN DREAM OF and the solutions, the present time solutions for you, start to take shape in your mind. Willingness, heart, ability and unwavering faith backed w/ knowledge in THE Afrikan way/ OUR WAY are some of the guides /measures to growth.
Therefore, by looking towards the 65th Century,(it is NOW 6246 After the Founding of Kemet or the Southern Cradle) which corresponds w/ ONE OF OUR MODES OF ANCIENT TIMEKEEPING, our solutions have to be 300 years and hopefully more in scope. What can we lay down NOW, especially in the way of CLARITY that can stand the test of time and still be strongly entrenched 3, 4, 5, hundred years from right now??? The Twa are our first example. Kemet and OUR pyramids (all 82) are the second example that we have it within OURSELVES/ CULTURALLY AS AFRIKANS to plan ahead clearly & for the long haul... I know those planners & actualizers are out there... The sooner we make the damn break from these folks & their REALITY, the better we'll be so we may as well do it now & start the building process, right...
This will be a spot for African Centered Discussions on everything from interracial marriages (genocide), transracial adoptions (cultural genocide), religious and spiritual discussions (there is a difference). Everything that can be talked about... will however it should/will be from an African Centered Perspective. Therefore:
NO YURUGU/NEGRO THOUGHT ALLOWED


MY PRIMARY E-MAIL ADDRESS MUTESA@BLACKPLANET.COM
TOPIC OF THE SITE: Caucasoid/Foreign Religions and the Afrikan Psychosis

Yes, I have purposely kept this topic up because this is our most serious obstacle towards LIBERATION. This is a new part for my faithful readers. Check out this article submitted to The Naked Truth some time ago. E-MAIL me back with responses: CHRISTIAN MYTHOLOGY

Afrikan people especially in the united states have been trying to MAKE (force) foreign religions to be Afrikan. We have colored jesus black (hell, everyone in the bible); we have taken over allah; we are even morons, oops I mean mormons but the KEY question that is not asked is:

WHAT WERE AFRIKAN PEOPLE DOING SPIRITUALLY BEFORE EUROPEANS/ARABS/HINDU INDIANS CAME TO THE CONTINENT???

Here are some indigenous/traditional Afrikan responses to foreign religions i.e. christianity coming into their existence: Indigenous Responses to Foreign Religions i.e. christianity, etc

This question also goes beyond just changing the images! Why are we sooooooooooooooooooooo afraid to reculture ourselves spiritually? We have people who can quote every African centered author, every vital book for Afrikan people, been to ALL ASCAC conferences, but they still subscribe to FOREIGN RELIGIONS!!! caucasoids have not only done a good job at getting Afrikans to hate/fear Afrikan ways but they have also made the WHOLE WORLD fear/hate these processes.

WE WILL NEVER BE TRULY FREE UNTIL WE RETURN TO OUR AFRIKAN SPIRITUALITY !!!

Also to squash one silly argument now, this author has done enough study of our indigenous systems to know that there is actually more similiarity in concepts than individual practices and names. I say this because some argue, "Africa is so diverse that there is no "African Spirituality." This has been studied and can be concretely refuted as not true. As Dr. Diop let us know there was a Cultural Unity, within that, there is a Spiritual Unity. All over the continent, we understand the importance of spirituality in our daily lives; we understand the use and effectiveness of Ancestor Veneration-all over the continent; we created Creation Stories 1) before EVERYONE ELSE 2) BEFORE the LEGEND of an adam or eve, and 3) that are more profound and explain the Universe BETTER than the genesis stuff; we understand the principle of Duality and the encompassing "ONE," this could go on and on. The main point is that over and over again back home, the spiritual concepts are where the spiritual unity of the continent express themselves, so readers, please never let anyone snow you with this fallacious, unresearched, uneducated argument. This is covering a lot, but going back to the first point, I challenge my Afrikan readers who "call" themselves African Centered to ask yourselves, "Why am I afraid to return to an ancient/traditional Afrikan Spiritual system in my own day-to-day life? What has been implanted into MY OWN psyche to make me fear the DEEPEST/MOST PROFOUND part of my Afrikan self? And what will it take for me to uproot this incorrect information and fully return home?" These are individual questions that only each person can answer and change for themselves.

"Oppression REQUIRES the dissociation of the oppressed from themselves; that they deny themselves, in service to their oppressors; that they avoid identifying with their ORIGINAL PERSONALITY and perceive identification with it as detrimental to their survival. The rejection of their authentic selves on the part of the oppressed is a necessary preparatory step to their replacement by artificial, manipulable selves socially manufactured by their oppressors" (Amos Wilson The Falsification of Afrikan Consciousness pg. 133)

Eminent european scholar Gerald Massey was asked should the bible be taught in schools in the early 1900's. This was his response: "The same correspondent desires to know whether I would exclude the [b]ible from our children's schools. Most Certainly. I would have the [b]ible-basis superseded from all future teaching as unscientific, immoral and false to the facts in nature. The mass of people who are [b]ible-taught never get free from the erroneous impressions stamped on their minds in their infancy, so that their manhood or womanhood can have no intellectual fulfillment, and millions of them only attain mentally to a sort of second childhood." Gerald Massey's Lectures page 104)


Boukman's Righteous Prayer "The god who created the earth; who created the sun that gives us light. The god who holds up the ocean; who makes the thunder roar. Our God who has ears to hear. You who are hidden in the clouds; who watch us from where you are. You see all that the white has made us suffer. The white man's god asks him to commit crimes. But the god within us wants to do good. Our god, who is so good, so just, He orders us to revenge our wrongs. It's He who will direct our arms and bring us the victory. It's He who will assist us. We all should throw away the image of the white men's god who is so pitiless. Listen to the voice for liberty that speaks in all our hearts."

Boukman's Prayer at the Bwa Kayiman Vodun ceremony, the call to action that launched the Haitian Revolution, on August 14, 1791.

These are writers who I have found over my traversing through dusty journals or books jumping off of shelves at me, etc., dealing w/ Afrika that I have never heard referenced or some have never seen in any bibliographies.
