Genealogical Society hosting DNA workshop


By Oniska Blevins | The Selma Times-Journal

Sankofa, a term of the Ghanaian Twi language, means to “go back and get it.” The Black Belt African American Genealogical and Historical Society has used the term as the blueprint for its foundation.

Brenda “B.J.” Smothers founded the organization in 2006 with the main purpose of studying and exchanging information among people interested in African American genealogy, family history and historic preservation, specifically in the Black Belt area.

“Genealogists believe you can’t know where you’re going unless you know where you came from,” she said.

Smothers said even though they may have a specific focus, their programs are for everyone.

“We focus on African American genealogy because it has been neglected, but we do…

Abstract Entities Manipulate Humanity

Abstract Entities

Dohgon Spirituality recognizes a variety of abstract entities that have direct as well as indirect influence on the daily lives of humans. Humans created some entities while Life and the Great Spirit of the universe itself created others. Aside from the Great Spirit, abstract entities have a potential to affect humans in adverse ways. Anyone can gain greater control of their life and choices by increasing their mental strength and awareness of abstract entities.

The Great Spirit of the universe is the Pure Dark Energy Waves that science recognizes as the Electro-Magnetic Spectrum. PDEW is abstract energy that cannot exist in the physical realm but it acts to regulate it through the forces it induces on physical matter. PDEW created Matter and Life and through Life it created Humans. The process of Matter creation can be understood in a formula created by Professor MOmOh of the Dohgon University of Thought.

Some people believe that energy, no mater the source, cannot possess intelligence because intelligence is a property of a Brain and Mind. I say think again because while the Mind is dependent on the Brain to generate an energy field, the Great Spirit is already an energy field. It is only man who cannot yet understand how that intelligence is being produced. The answer is in its creation.  

Life is a single conscious entity, which consists of a micro and macrocosm of Carbon based creatures that can recreate themselves sexual and a-sexually. Life begins at a level where molecules of Matter form Nucleic Acid Compounds that string together to form DNA. DNA is therefore the basic building block of Life.

Although the Great Spirit communicates with Life, Life lacks Universal Awareness. Therefore, Life is on a quest for awareness using every tool at its disposal. Human Nature is being manipulated by Life by way of our Brain hormones. Those of us who acknowledge the Great Spirit are inspired by it to be Conscious of Mind.

Those who succumb to the mechanisms of Life remain Unconscious. They are employed as tools, ignorant of purpose while driven by Desire and Curiosity. Life forces them to engage in Risk and pursue Pleasure for a reward of Dopamine. Fortunately, all humans are equipped by the Great Spirit with a Conscience as a safety-net to protect Life.

Spirits are abstract energy beings that are a product of Life. Spirits are the Soul energy of living things that have died and transcended Life after death to join the energy of the Great Spirit. Spirits are good beings who though they can go anywhere in the universe due to their omnipotence, visit Earth on a regular basis.

Spirits are all around us trying their best to guide us but the bridge between the physical and the abstract world is too complex to pass through. Only the Great Spirit can achieve it as stated in the Dohgon formula for creation on (how something abstract becomes real).  

Another bridge exists between the abstract and the physical world. It is located in the Brain and is called the Pineal Gland. Energy from the abstract realm enters our Minds in total darkness to create Melatonin, our body’s most important hormone. Spirits also enter our Minds through the Pineal Gland to manipulate our Brain and create messages to deliver to us through our Dreams. If you cannot interpret your dreams there are people who can do it for you.

The guidance of Spirits is what strengthens our conscience to build morals for us to live by. Morals encourage us to interact with the rest of Life using Fairness, Equity, and Accountability. Thousands of years ago when evil did not exist in the world humans lived in accord with nature and each other. Life changed however and humans began to notice inequities in life. Those inequities are what compromised the development of mature Spirits disabling them from transcending to the universe so they are bound to Earth as Ghosts.

Ghosts are entities that are also a product of Life. They are the Souls of people who have died but their Souls are too weak to transcend into Spiritual form so now they are trapped in the gray zone between Soul and Spirit. Ghosts are usually people who were evil, wicked, mean, and selfish in life. They may also be people who died tragically and are afraid to move on. Some have enough energy to do so but instead they decide to use that energy to claim ownership (haunt) the place they died.

Ghosts are bitter Souls who also have the ability to use their energy to possess the living. They easily attach to people who practice evil to grow the Devil energy within that person. The best way to avoid Ghosts is to do good things in life. Doing good things generates good energy, which is magnetic so it attracts other good people toward you. Avoid doing things for a reward. That is Desire driven and non-Spiritual. Make no conditions for doing good things as the Great Spirit is not beholden to Life or humanity, it simply exists.

Gods are abstract entities created by man. The Great Spirit of the universe created Humans with a Conscience, which is an energy field that encourages goodwill, morality, and empathy within man. Man existed in a state of oneness with Life until he developed a (Fear for the Unknown). Man then created deities for comfort and to give meaning and purpose to his life. Soon man discovered that his deities could also provide courage to alleviate his fears.

Man began to pray to his deities for good fortune but even worse; he believed that by making sacrifices to his deities he could gain a reward. Man’s deities became more and more extravagant until man himself demanded praise from the people under his control. Deities and human gods always died however, breaking the influential energy they hold. It wasn’t until the Jews created a mystery god, bringing the physical into the abstract realm, that the power of the man-made god excelled. 

The Devil is an abstract entity created by man. There are many evil entities (Demons) but the collective evil energy humanity creates is the entity that is referred to as the Devil. The Devil represents all the bad and undesirable aspects of existence. Although the Devil is abstract its energy can become an influential force by way of the energy we feed it. In essence, evil energy is a contagious disease because doing evil to others also generates evil in them, especially when they have substituted true Spirituality with a god. So just like doing good to others produces goodwill among men, doing evil also produces an overall evil society.

The Devil (evil energy) is also responsible for man’s ignorance of the Great Spirit. The Devil is not a very powerful entity since it is man made however, evil energy traps the human mind into relying on ideology and the mechanisms of Life; namely Desire rather than Truth. In such a condition the mind twists life into a (pursuit of Happiness) whereby we live to quench our Desires for sex, money, beauty, heaven, and ultimately a paradise in death next to our imaginary gods.

Abstract Entities are energy beings that cannot be communicated with or affected by physical interaction. The only way to increase or decrease the influence that Abstract Entities have on one’s Soul is through mental strength. The Dohgon University of thought is a school of mental concentration management that teaches how to improve your Concentration in order to communicate with the Great Spirit, how to manage the mechanisms of Life, and how to avoid being trapped by the Desire driven energies of gods and devils.

6 Basic Principles Of Black Consciousness

 

Principles of the HERU Interface

Consciousness is the state of being self-aware. Black Consciousness is the state of being aware that the Black Race is under attack physically and psychologically so you take steps to protect it. Some Black people never realize this fact so they exist believing that a god made them to suffer at the hands of other Races.

Some Black people do realize that their Race is hated so they either try their best to assimilate culturally and genetically or rely on Human Rights Laws to protect them. A small percentage of Black people actually take pride in their racial identity and they seek ways to preserve their blackness. If you are on a journey towards consciousness here are 6 basic principles to live by.

0) Honor and Respect our Afrakan ancestry and our ancestors

Anthropology states that there are 5 distinct races in the world today, all of which originated from the original Afrakan race. The fact that Africans still exist is proof that we are the Carbon copy and not the Blueprint for other races, as they would like you to believe. In other words, they did not evolve from the original; they genetically mutated as a result of our own unaccountable behavior and prolonged environmental extremes.

Today, the cultures and systems that some have created to maintain psychological control over humanity have got most people believing that Nirvana is the ultimate goal and fading to white physically and mentally is the only way to achieve real happiness. As conscious minded people we need to resist popular culture and return to our own traditions. That involves honoring and respecting our Afrakan ancestors and our ancestry.

1) Value Your Genetic characteristics

Afrakans have the most noticeable genetic characteristics of all the races. Our skin tones range from Black to golden Brown; our hair can be kinky course or soft and wavy; our facial features include thick Lips and broad Noses; and our women have the most ample Behinds.

The indoctrinating effect of popular culture has had a detrimental effect on our racial pride and self esteem. The result is our people no longer value our physical genetic characteristics. Most of our women now either wear hair from other races or burn the kink out of their hair with chemicals. Both men and women are either trying to bleach the blackness out of their skin or reproducing with other races to ensure their children have a easier go at life.

Don’t blame them. They’ve been indoctrinated into the “survival of the fittest” mentality of popular culture so that’s all they know. Once you begin to accept and value your Afrakan genetic characteristics you will begin to experience a new sense of racial pride. You will begin to look in the mirror and exclaim, “Black is beautiful”!

2) Defend and Protect Other Conscious people

Conscious Black people should always defend and protect other Black conscious people, whether they’re under attack from other races or our own self-destructive people. It’s not easy to swim against the current of popular culture so those who do need all the support they can get. There are different levels of Black consciousness. Some of us are just waking up while some of us have been awakened for years.

Some of us are more political, militant, or Spiritual than others but as long as the goal is the defense of the Black race then we’re all on the same wavelength.Never support anyone or anything that destroys our race. That includes other Black people who overlook the problems within their own race in order to side with the opinions and ideologies of others because it makes them appear acceptable. It also includes Black people who lack self-respect and those who thrive on violence, gangsterism, exploitation, and the destruction of Life.

3) Increase your Awareness

Society is being flooded with deceptions and misinformation for many purposes; the most dangerous of which is to keep Black people from achieving our true potential in life. We can become geniuses because no other race has a direct connection to the abstract energy of the universe as we do through our Pineal Glands. Most of us don’t know that and others will never tell you because most of them also don’t know it.

Those in power control the world by luck because their pursuit of happiness created conditions in the Brain that shifted everyone’s psyche outward. That means that in order to achieve happiness you have to acquire things from the outside world. The truth is we can create anything we want from the inside by learning how to think creatively. Professor MOmOh of the Dohgon University of Thought teaches that we are Creative while they are Innovative because true creativity comes from the abstract universe, while innovation comes from manipulating thing already in existence.

Increasing your awareness involves gaining knowledge about how society and the world works but most of all it means gaining knowledge about how your brain works. Learn about the Eye of Heru and your Senses so you can transform from a reactionary person to a truly conscious self disciplined person who functions by your Mind and not your Brain. In time you will be so self-disciplined that you will begin to regain the intuition skills of your ancestors.

4) Choose Spirituality over Religion

Afrakan Spirituality existed long before religion. In fact, it was Afrakan Spirituality that others used to create religions. Now they say their religions are real and civilized while Afrakan Spirituality is primitive and occult. Well, I have news for them. Believing in unseen people in the clouds is more of a cult than believing in the energies that drive the wind, heat the Earth, and energize metals. We call these energies Spirits but they are unseen forces that animate living and non-living things by flowing through them.

Afrakan Spirituality is an extension of our Animistic nature. Animism means to live in accord with nature; respect nature and recognize that no part of nature is more important than the next. In doing so our ancestors attributed separate Spirits to things such as; Earth, Wind, Fire, and Water. Humanity’s problems arose when some people began to worship the Spirits and depend on them to solve their problems.

Religions were created when moral teachings were combined with Spiritual worship. Then in order to enhance the strength of moral teachings physical representations of good and evil had to be created so they came up with the concept of God and the Devil. (Notice the similarity on the spelling) Conscious people must recognize that Religion is an Illusion but if you cannot escape it then use it for Goodwill and not Self-Servitude.

5) Support Black Financial Empowerment

One of the best ways to improve the Black Afrakan race is to work on becoming financially independent and empowered. Financial empowerment involves good personal money management as well as the support of Black owned businesses and companies. We exist in a Capitalist society but most of us don’t know how Capitalism works and because of our Animistic nature we keep fighting for Socialism (economic equality). That along with systemic racism is the essence of Black social digression.

Capitalism was born out of the basic exchange of goods, services, and labor (slavery) for money. Today it’s become a complex system optimized by unbalanced economic conditions, which means it works best when everyone is not on the same level financially. It even becomes more effective by psychological manipulation in the form of consumerism. That is the state of black society today; poor discontent consumers driven by the belief that acquiring physical things will make us happy. The only positive is it keeps the economy in motion.

Since we’ll never change the political systems in society unless we run our own country we’ll have to learn to make Capitalism work for us. Start in schools by learning how to create businesses instead of learning how to become good workers for someone else. Learn how to save your money and invest it wisely. Avoid credit and debt that put you in financial slavery to the Banks. Support Black owned businesses locally and nationally.

Important in our quest for financial independence is to avoid bad-minded thoughts that may tell you that you’re making another Black person rich while you’re poor. It took thousands of years to create our present condition so it cannot change over night. Self-discipline and perseverance will ensure the success of these basic principles of Black Consciousness.

Blonde Hair Is Not Afrakan

I am convinced that ignorance is death yet most people believe that it is bliss. They say what you don’t know won’t hurt you therefore you must take bad situations and make the best of them. Unfortunately most people never recognize bad situations to begin with; they just continue to live and die by the mechanisms of Life in blissful ignorance.

For years pictures of children with dark skin and long blond hair have been passed around social media. When the unknowing see these pictures they say; “you see, Black is beautiful because Black people can have blond hair too”. They never take the time to research and understand how such an anomaly is possible.

The first thing they should understand is that most of the children in those pictures are from the Solomon Islands in the South Pacific. Don’t believe me? Take any one of those pictures and do a Google image search. The second thing they must understand is that before the 1960s there was no such traits as Black people with blond hair in the Solomon Islands.

So what happened in the Solomon Islands that created Black people with blond hair? The answer is Nuclear Radiation. How did Nuclear Radiation affect some Black people way out in the middle of the Pacific Ocean? The culprit of this unspeakable evil is France.

France is one of only 9 Nuclear Armed nations in the world. In their endeavor to join that evil club and perfect their weapons of war they carried out numerous Nuclear tests in the South Pacific between 1966 and 1996. The result was widespread contamination of the ocean, wildlife, vegetation, and the Polynesian people. In some areas the people’s skin turned pale white for months due to the excessive levels of radiation that they were subjected to.

If you have the faintest understanding about Nuclear Radiation you will know that radiation has a direct effect on DNA. Unlike drinking or taking drugs while pregnant may cause birth defects, such defects are non generational. On the other hand, Radiation causes permanent DNA defects that may never correct through natural reproduction.

No one knows how many people died as a direct effect of the French nuclear tests in French Polynesia since no one official records were kept. We can only see the results in the health of the people and how their genetic traits have dramatically changed compared to other people in the South Pacific.

For decades the world turned a blind eye to Frances nuclear activities that messed up the South Pacific. That’s because other nuclear nations were doing similar evils of their own so they couldn’t be hypocritical. The locals did their best to fight back until foreign environmentalists joined their cause.

So, while that saga is over and we forget, don’t know, or don’t care, history will preserve it as a learning example for those of us who are proud of our AfRAkan ancestry. We know that it’s because of Desire Dependency why most ignorant people, including some of those same Islanders have shunned their AfRAkan origins.

Ignorance is not a trend. We are Dohgon and in our understanding of Ankh/Life we never start from step 1 by admiring the unnatural beauty created by evil; we always start from ground 0 which is AfRAkan blackness.
