New Afrakan Spiritual System to Encourage Racial Unity

New Religion

Judging from the desperate condition of the Afrakan race, it is no longer debatable as to whether we need saving or not. Even so, most Black people are so happy in their religious illusions that they will never agree. Fortunately, many of us are waking up and realizing that most of the Spiritual practices that once gave us hope in a brighter future are a deception because they hold us subservient to other races of people who do not have our best interest at heart. If we are ever going to survive as a race we will need a new Afrakan Spiritual system to encourage racial unity.  

We know thаt the human рѕусhе nееdѕ аn operating ѕуѕtеm tо hеlр nаvіgаtе this world in which humans are bоrn without knоwlеdgе and often have to struggle to survive. In order to survive we must acquire knоwlеdgе, dеtеrmіnе реrѕоnаl purpose, and pursue happiness before we inevitably dіе, оftеn unfulfilled due tо thе mаnу іniԛuіtіеѕ of life. Amazingly, most іniԛuіties in life are man made including thе racism, еxрlоіtаtіоn, and dіѕсrіmіnаtіоn that wе as Black people have been facing as a rасе fоr thе раѕt 500 years.

It is also evident that iniquity is the author of the insanity of colonizing races. It has caused them to develop the Religions and Cultѕ that they use to conquer, соlоnіze, and indoctrinate the іndіgеnоuѕ реорlе of the world. Fortunately for some, their own Spiritual practices have hеlреd them to rеbuff thе Rеlіgіоnѕ аnd Cults of the colonizers. The result is that over the past 500 years, indigenous реорlе ѕuсh аѕ Asians аnd Sоuth Aѕіаnѕ hаvе dоnе vеrу wеll аt rebuffing thе rеlіgіоnѕ аnd сultѕ оf Eurореаnѕ bу аdhеrіng to their own bеlіеf systems.

Other іndіgеnоuѕ реорlе such as the North аnd South Amеrісаn Nаtіvеѕ аnd thе Sоuth Pacific Iѕlаndеrѕ іnсludіng Auѕtrаlіа and New Zealand, haven’t fаrеd so wеll. In fасt, many оf them are оnlу hаngіng on tо their Spiritual trаdіtіоnѕ bу a thrеаd. Afrаkаnѕ аnd оur dеѕсеndаntѕ that hаvе bееn ѕрrеаd throughout thе wоrld as a result of slаvеrу аnd forced mіgrаtіоn аrе thе only lоѕt саuѕе whеn it соmеѕ to bеіng able tо rеbuff the рѕусhоlоgісаl іnfluеnсеѕ of nоntrаdіtіоnаl Spirituality.

In thе Amеrісаѕ, thе Cаrіbbеаn, Europe, аnd on thе Cоntіnеnt іtѕеlf, Afrаkаnѕ (Blасk реорlе) hаvе whоlеhеаrtеdlу еmbrасеd the rеlіgіоnѕ оf оur colonizers, bе thеу Arаb оr European. In many саѕеѕ уоu саn’t аrguе wіth a Black religious реrѕоn duе to thе faith they hold thаt God оr Allah wіll rеwаrd them fоr thе suffering thеу endure іn lіfе. 

Whеn wе ѕее thе lоw level of consciousness іn Blасk соmmunіtіеѕ, creating a nеw Spiritual system tо еnсоurаgе rасіаl unity mау nоt bе ѕuсh a bаd іdеа. Mаnу реорlе mау dеnу іt but rеlіgіоnѕ аrе сultѕ. If you аѕk a religious реrѕоn whаt thе dіffеrеnсе bеtwееn a rеlіgіоn and a сult іѕ mоѕt wіll most likely ѕау that religion praises gоd while сultѕ рrаіѕе idols, dеіtіеѕ, аnd demons. In reality, thе оnlу dіffеrеnсе between religions and cults is that one praises an imaginary being and the other praises рhуѕісаl objects. 

Whу dо Blасk аnd Afrakan реорlе hаvе ѕuсh a hаrd time achieving rасіаl unіtу?

In оrdеr to achieve rасіаl unіtу, wе must fіrѕt undеrѕtаnd whаt unіtу is. Unіtу is a mеntаl ѕtаtе in whісh a ѕеt оf commonalities encourage реорlе to fоrm a ѕосіаl “Bоnd”. Unity іѕ fоund іn mаnу forms іn ѕосіеtу. It соuld exist through Rеlіgіоnѕ, Cults, Grоuрѕ оf реорlе who practice a ѕіmіlаr lifestyle, Gаngѕ, Sororities, Rасіаl and Political Idеаlіѕtѕ оr аnуthіng else that unіfіеѕ a grоuр of реорlе ѕо muсh that thеу are wіllіng tо mаkе реrѕоnаl sacrifices tо defend the grоuр.

In order tо undеrѕtаnd whу Blасk реорlе сlіng to religions even when thеу dоnt hеlр our racial unіtу wе must аnаlуzе thе еѕѕеnсе оf thе роwеr оf rеlіgіоn іtѕеlf. Thе роwеr оf rеlіgіоn lies in maintaining Blіnd Fаіth іn a Belief thаt God іѕ rеаl. Thеn bеlіеf іѕ supported and enhanced bу ritualistic practices such as prayers, offerings, and affirmations. Gathering with other people to engage in all those things also adds enormous emotional еnеrgу to ones Faith.

In a gаthеrіng of people expressing thе same ѕtrоng emotions, the energy of аll their Sоulѕ vіbrаtе in unity. Thіѕ invisible energy fіеld mаkеѕ реорlе begin tо fееl funny аnd they bеgіn tо believe thаt their God іѕ now among thеm. Thе рrоblеm wіth Soul energy vіbrаtіоn іѕ thаt іt саn be generated іn аnу сіrсumѕtаnсе whеrе people оf thе same еmоtіоnаl mеntаlіtу hаvе gаthеrеd. Whеn people wіth bad intentions gаthеr thеу generate bad еnеrgу, thаt energy turns into Dеvіl energy.

What are the ethics оf сrеаtіng a Spiritual system tо еnсоurаgе Black unіtу?

Rеlіgіоnѕ аnd cults require leaders оr keepers оf the “rulеѕ”. These keepers wоuld understand аnd know that thе rеlіgіоn or сult іѕ not rеаl but in оrdеr fоr thе religion or сult tо hold роwеr as an іndереndеnt entity, аvеrаgе реорlе must nоt know thаt thе bеlіеf ѕуѕtеm is fake. This іѕ the source оf the power of аll religions and сultѕ in ореrаtіоn tоdау so whу wоuld wе wish to mаіntаіn thіѕ form оf dесерtіоn, еѕресіаllу whеn they have bееn іnѕtrumеntаl іn our dерrеѕѕіоn?

This is an issue of great internal debate. However, crеаtіng аnd рrораgаtіng a fаkе bеlіеf system would bе useful іn сарturіng thе аttеntіоn оf оur rесklеѕѕ youth whо are doing nothing оthеr thаn dеѕtrоуіng оur rасе thrоugh crime, vіоlеnсе, immorality, drug uѕе, and ѕеlf-hаtе. Wе knоw thаt thе destructive еnеrgу thе уоuth аrе projecting is the rеѕult оf сеnturіеѕ оf сulturаl dеѕtruсtіоn аt thе hаndѕ of оur оррrеѕѕоrѕ because in оrdеr tо іnѕtіll thеіr rеlіgіоnѕ and сulturеѕ on оur реорlе and render us subservient to them, thеу hаd to dеѕtrоу оur Spiritual practices and our cultures first.

Over the past few decades, a lot of Blасk аnd Afrаkаn реорlе have been waking uр оut оf our соlоnіаl ѕlumbеr аnd have been turning to Afrаkаn Sріrіtuаlіtу to fill our Spiritual void. Unfortunately, many of us are been fooled by useless Afrakan cults that involve engaging in ritualistic practices to gain wealth, health, love, or to inflict harm on others. Before you follow these useless cults just ask yourself one very important thing. If cults really worked, how is it that we didn’t use it on the white man when he was raping our young girls, chopping off our penises and hands, and carrying us away in chains for over 400 years?  

We see our brothers and sisters in mаnу аrеаѕ оf Afrаkа dеѕtrоуіng thеіr оwn соmmunіtіеѕ bу killing іnnосеnt реорlе tо uѕе their bоdу parts іn ritual practices. We see our brothers and sisters in the west destroying themselves with drugs and senseless violence because they worship money. It ѕееmѕ that we as Black people hаvеn’t lеаrnеd anything аbоut hоw rеlіgіоnѕ and cults rеаllу work. All cults do is force conscientious people to retreat back to the religions of the colonizers where their creativity is crippled by the survival instincts that fear produces.

Ritualists don’t see that the colonizers figured cults out over 2000 years ago and created the New Testament in which ritual practices were nullified using one single sacrifice. All desires, hopes, and dreams were then channeled into Jesus. We have been practicing religions and cults for thousands of years yet we have become the most self-destructive race on Earth. That is because until we learn how the magic works we will always be fooled by the trick.    

We are Conscious minded Black people who recognize that Ethics is the most civilized human pursuit. That is why we have created the HERU Interface as an alternative Spiritual belief system for Black and Afrakan people. In doing so, we endeavor to change our social condition and encourage racial unity. Without Ethics, human happiness will always be compromised by the Ideologies of the few who will use religions and cults to control the minds of the masses for their favor. Religions and Cults are unethical and useless to us because we refuse to be anything but the gods of our own destiny.

 

 

ZaZa Ali a Black Consciousness Vampire?

Zaza Ali Vampire

Is ZaZa Ali a Black Consciousness vampire? Her recent exposure for trying to keep nearly $15K in appearance fees from a speaking engagement that she cancelled out on would certainly suggest so. Appearance fee provisions are contractual agreements between event organizers and performers. Patrons therefore need to be very careful to read the fine print before they purchase tickets in advance because Performers are not obligated to return advances unless they break the contract.  

In this case the ticket holders were only fortunate enough to get refunds based on their efforts to expose the unethical actions of ZaZa Ali by exposing her as the one who broke the contractual agreement. The determining factor as to whether ZaZa Ali is truly an unethical person and a Black Consciousness vampire has to be based on her overall track record. Unfortunately for her, many people are now exposing her as having a very shady past.

A vampire is a person who stays alive by sucking the blood of other people, however the term vampire has also been adopted to include people who drain other people’s energy, money, and time. A Black Consciousness vampire therefore, is a person who specializes in scamming, hustling, and robbing the Black Conscious community. Many people who rise to prominence in the community may begin with good intentions buy without a moral anchor, they will inevitably transform into Vampires.

Controversy involving ZaZa Ali is not new. Several well-known people in the Black Conscious community have spoken out about her character and history before but without substantive evidence, most of the talk was passed off as jealousy over her rapid influential rise. One of the most damming accusations about her is that she is a convicted felon who has several fraud charges.

No one is saying that people cannot change and from what we see, she has been doing just that. We know that one of the best ways to help one’s self is to help others. Unfortunately, true self-improvement begins with the strengthening of one’s morals through strong self-discipline. According to our understanding of human psychology, morality is a product of one’s Conscience and Conscience encourages Fairness, Equity, and Accountability. These three traits are the foundation of true Black Consciousness.

We encourage ZaZa not to hide behind the allegations of fraud that has inflamed the Black Consciousness community but to come clean. As she can clearly witness, people love to pile on and before you know it, her career will disappear in a puff of smoke like a real Vampire.

 

6 Common Misconceptions About Black Consciousness

black consciousness

I’m seeing many people on social media who, after exhibiting some level of participation in various discussions on the problems facing Black people, get frustrated and lash out against Black Consciousness. They begin to classify all “so-called conscious” people under the same category as if all Black Conscious people are the same. All it does is expose their own level of consciousness to reveal that they never started becoming conscious from the inside first.

First of all, Black Consciousness is not an organization or something to join. Black Consciousness is all about self-improvement by acquiring knowledge about all things including yourself, your history and the way the world works. By increasing your knowledge, you will be able to understand and work to conquer the problems that hinder your personal happiness and the happiness of the people you have a bond with, which are your fellow Black people. All Black people who are seeking to raise their level of consciousness should understand what Black Consciousness is not by addressing these common misconceptions about the movement.

Misconception 1. Black Consciousness was started by Ghetto Scholars on Social Media.

No, Black Consciousness is not a “Johnny come lately” concept started by Ghetto Scholars. The modern incarnation of Black Consciousness is only a continuation of a movement that began post-slavery with people like Frederick Douglas, Booker T Washington, Marcus Garvey, WEB Du Bois and many others. In the mid to late 19th century there was Rosa Parks, Malcolm X, Martin Luther King, Farrakhan, Steve Biko, Kwame Nkrumah, Nelson Mandela and many lesser known scholars who served to inspire the current generation of people a lot of us look to for leadership.

The term Black Consciousness was actually coined by Steve Biko of South Africa in the early 1970s. Biko and other politically active students formed a Black student organization in their university to address the extreme brutality of Apartheid. Through his writings Steve Biko proved that the Pen is mightier than the Sword and that conscious thought is more powerful than violent confrontation. Biko was a very intelligent man who used his pen to metaphorically stab at the conscience of white South Africans. Unfortunately, in 1977 he was killed by the wicked Apartheid security forces. Although Apartheid ended in South Africa Biko is still a Martyr of inspiration for South Africans.

Personally, I first became familiar with the term “Consciousness” from Reggae music in my native country of Jamaica and later in the Hip-hop music of the 1980s. In Reggae music there are numerous sub-genres, one of which still has a very powerful influence on Reggae music and that is Conscious Reggae. The conscious genre includes Bob Marley in the 1960s, all the way up to Chronixx today. Conscious Reggae is all about addressing corruption in society by providing inspiration through the music. In Hip-Hop Conscious Rap music addressed common injustices such as hunger, poverty and police brutality. The message of Consciousness has always been there throughout our history of oppression, its up to us as individuals to take heed.

Misconception 2. Black Consciousness is non-religious.

Consciousness occurs when energy passing between nerves cells in the Brain generates a Mind field. Black Consciousness occurs when a Black person begins to rationalize about his or her condition and embarks on a mission to change it for the better. One of the most successful vehicles for self improvement is religion. I call religion a paradox tool because you cannot use it to help you if you know the truth about it and it helps you best when it induces you into having blind faith.

The key benefit of religion is self-discipline therefore, to maintain blind faith in the promise of eternal life after death is the ultimate exercise in self discipline. You begin to believe that even the evil things that are happening to you are simply tests of your faith so you persevere in your illusions. At some point however, you begin to see that its either too much to bear or its actually the Devil that’s oppressing you so you begin to fight back. Such were the cases of Malcolm X and Martin Luther King.

Isn’t it ironic that the two biggest examples of Black people fighting back against the unjust system of America were religion based? Both men used the self discipline that they gained from religion, one Islam, the other a Christian, to build such huge followings that they even emboldened other Black people to stand up and fight back against oppression. All religions are based on illusions but as was evident, they build self discipline which is a key characteristic required in Black Consciousness. Religious consciousness begins when Black religious leaders begin to use their influence to address social problems.

Misconception 3. Black Consciousness is militant and violent.

Some of us have the misconception that Black consciousness is about overthrowing “the system” by violent means. There’s nothing wrong with that if that’s the way you feel but be prepared to go all out. Violent revolutions have historically been the best way to bring about change in a corrupt society. You will need thousands of like minded people who are willing to die for the cause but don’t get frustrated when a majority of Black people will not join you.

It has little to do with being scared. Our problems are; we do not trust one another and we fear the consequences of acting due to a lack of knowledge and organization. The best solution to our dis-unity and confusion is a strong leader or a strong Spiritual inspiration. Unfortunately, there are no real Black leaders within the Black Conscious community and Black people are too Spiritually fragmented to fight for the ideals of a single god. Farrakhan came close but as is evident, his influence is on the decline.

When you overthrow the System what will you replace it with? All systems are not Black and White. You may find inspiration in hating the White man but consider that there are many other corrupt systems in the world. Even in predominantly Black countries there is hate for authority which means that what you are really fighting for is personal Liberty. Just know that without a strong Conscience, personal Liberty will eventually lead to personal corruption and the corruption of others within the same society as your personal liberties collide with the liberties of others.

Misconception 4. Everyone who claims to be conscious is really conscious.

There are some people who use the concept of Black Consciousness for profit or fame. Beware of these people; they are not conscious, they are opportunists. A Conscious person is able to use his or her Mind to override the desires of his or her Brain. Read about Desire Dependency for a detailed explanation of this character trait. Truly conscious people are not hung up on Desire manipulating things such as Beauty, Sex, Drugs, Money, Fame, and Power.

Misconception 5. Black Consciousness speaks for all Black people.

Conscious individuals and organizations do not speak for all Black conscious people like the term Black Community does not indicate racial solidarity. To each his own so if you do not like the message that someone who professes to be Conscious is dispensing then move on. One of the ultimate goals of consciousness movement is to inspire every individual to become a leader in their own right. That way the movement doesn’t die with the death of a leader.

Misconception 6. Black Consciousness is Leftist, Socialist, and Communist.

There is a common misconception among many Black people that to be conscious means that you have to become a Socialist or a Communist. Furthermore, you have to give up your pursuit of wealth, higher education, family values, and the sanctity of Life itself to focus on the needs of the Black community. The problem with Socialism and Communism is that they are incompatible with the flaws of human nature therefore, they must be legislated or imposed on a society by a dictator in order to work.

Common sense dictates that you cannot force goodwill; it has to be Altruistic. Altruism is the concept of practicing kindness in all your interactions with others. Helping others has to come from your own Conscience and not someone forcing you to do it. The difference between Altruism and Socialism is that Altruism is a conscience builder that also extends to protect all aspects of Life, not just humanity. With Altruism a rich man will find it easier to help and support those in need out of the goodness of his heart.
