When political news breaks, the reactions it garners can elicit verbose and detailed responses from the nation’s elite academics. But, sometimes, in the limited space of Twitter, the only thing James S. McDonnell Distinguished University Professor Eddie S. Glaude GS ’97 needs to say is, “WTH?!”

In the past month alone, nine different articles, reports, and pieces of news have received that exact reaction from Glaude.

Despite the occasional brevity of his tweets, Glaude’s…

5 bizarre rituals African ‘pastors’ perform in the name of religion


African pastors have recently become popular for all the wrong reasons. They are now more known for their extravagant and luxurious lifestyles than for preaching the word of God.

In their quest for this life, many have resorted to bizarre rituals of ‘healing’ and ‘luring’ more people to their churches.  Just recently news that a South African pastor,  Prophet Rufus Phala, made his congregation drink Jik bleach has been going viral on social media. Four people have died as a result of this act.

 

It is not the first time Phala has been in the news. In 2016, he made the congregation drink Dettol and even the…

What is the HERU Interface?

What is the HERU Interface?

The Heru Interface is a new operating system for human consciousness. An interface is a bridge between two platforms or devices that facilitates communication and interaction. For that reason, an interface can be considered an operating system. Common interfaces for operating computers are Windows and Mac OS. Common operating systems for understanding life and reality are religion and science.

The word HERU is an acronym that stands for Highest Exponential Reasoning and Understanding. It is an acronym that was defined by Professor Momoh of the Dohgon University of Thought. It is such a fitting description for how to use your Mind to control your Brain that we have adapted it as a moniker for our cause.

The word Heru is synonymous with the “Eye of Heru” symbol that has become a pop culture icon. From TV network icons to body art, the Eye of Heru is recognized and admired universally as a symbol of knowledge, understanding, and wisdom. Without true wisdom, its use is purely one-dimensional however.

The word Heru is also a translation for the Greek word Horus. Heru was a protector god in Egyptian mythology. He was symbolically depicted as a man with a Falcon’s head. Falcons are predator birds that roam high in the sky and possess very sharp vision to spot the smallest prey on the ground. They were therefore characterized as being “all-seeing”.

In order for something to be “all seeing” it has to possess universal awareness. Unfortunately, there is no entity that knows everything except the Great Spirit that created the Universe. We do not recognize that spirit as god because all gods are limited by the ideologies that describe them. Gods also require praise and obedience while the Great Spirit requires nothing.

We recognize the Great Spirit as abstract Pure Dark Energy. Science also recognizes it (in part) as the Electro-Magnetic Spectrum. It cannot exist in the physical world but it acts to regulate and manipulate it. Simply put, the Great Spirit is a Mind. It transforms its abstract energy into physical matter through a special process that is defined in Dohgon Science.

The Carbon core of Stars are portals between physical and abstract realms. The Great Spirit first created the Elements and Life then through Life it created Humans. Humans and some other aspects of Life exist as a Duality because we are both physical and Abstract. We can tap into the Great Spirit using the energy generated by electricity passing between nerve endings in our Brains. That energy creates the Electro-Magnetic field we call our Minds.

At some time in its existence Life switched from simply existing to a pursuit of Universal Awareness. Life is using every tool at its disposal to achieve its ultimate goal including sacrificing parts of itself. Life is bound to the physical therefore it can only manipulate by physical means using Mechanisms centered on Desire.

The only reward for Human activity is Happiness, which is facilitated by the hormone Dopamine. That is why all human activity is now centered around a constant Pursuit of Happiness to the point of Addiction and death. We want and desire beauty, pleasure, wealth, prosperity, good health, and ultimately to live forever.

The Great Spirit is active within us in the form of Conscience, which is the only balance for Desire. Conscience transforms Desire into Love by inducing brain cells to produce Oxytocin alongside Dopamine. Conscience also encourages Fairness, Equity, and Accountability in the human psyche.

The pillars of Conscience are the foundation of true Black Consciousness. You can never be too Conscious but you can be Desire Dependent, which means that you are a servant to Life. In such a condition your Mind is ruled by the Desires of Life. You will want and desire unnatural beauty, sexual pleasure, power, and anything else that gets your Dopamine flowing.

The Heru Interface is a new way of thinking and perceiving the world. It encourages people to think consciously instead of unconsciously. Unethical thinking is a byproduct of the mechanisms of life but since we are bound to Life we need to help Life to flourish and grow in an ethical way instead of in the corrupt and unethical ways we are witnessing today.

Jamaicans Losing Their Religion

Jamaican flag

Jamaicans are slowly losing their religion. It is a social condition that has been happening for years and one that has recently become more evident when popular entertainer, Mr. Vegas, challenged the controversial statements of a well-known pastor on social media and in church. Mr. Vegas’s surprising loss of faith in the church is a recent phenomenon as the popular Dancehall artiste has always been very outspoken about his Christian beliefs in public and in his music.

Mr. Vegas is a smart man who has been reading the bible for years and while he has discovered many passages in it that are contradictory, he has never questioned his Faith before. However, one passage that always bothered his conscience is one that says “My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge”. This passage is explained as; people are dying because they don’t or refuse to truly know god.

When a rational thinking person reads this passage and he or she observes the level of corruption in society and in the church he or she will naturally conclude that most people don’t know god. And even those that have unshakable Faith in god are dying in great numbers at the hands of merciless criminals. The rational thinking person will then either challenge the church and society using his own understanding of god or he will seek an alternative belief system because the one that society is using to understand god is not working.

Mr. Vegas has chosen to seek an alternative belief system in Kemetic Spirituality as well as to challenge religion. The question that he has to face now is how he will determine truth from Illusion because real Knowledge is based on Truth. He already knows that only real knowledge can help Black people end our cycle of destruction. The best way determine truth from illusion is through questioning. However, on one hand illusionists believe that to question is to lack faith in what they believe to be true. Therefore, they will redefine questioning to mean (seeking clarity) instead of to actually seeking truth. What then is (seeking clarity) if not to enforce that which you already believe.

All Jamaicans who are experiencing a loss of faith in Christianity and are seeking an alternative belief system need to be careful of settling for other religions or Atheism before you truly understand yourself psychologically. Imagine, 3000 years ago philosophers knew that DESIRE was the key problem in human nature but pastors and 99% of people today do not understand DESIRE. Know that the only balance for Desire is Conscience. That is how all religions were born. Religions are systems of Desire management where an overseer (god) is put in place to help people control their Desires.

People today are actively destroying the tenants of Conscience which are; Fairness, Equity, and Accountability, by using Human Rights laws as a means of quenching their various Desires. Pastors are creating conflict in society because they don’t understand desire so they condemn people without helping them to strengthen their Consciences in a productive way. Conflict will always produce conflict. If pastors were truly conscious they would invite and train people to manage their dysfunctions by strengthening the power of their Minds by strengthening their consciences.

When Jamaicans begin to learn how our Mind works we will also begin to understand the validity of religion and how to move beyond it without destroying ourselves in the process. We will learn that religion can only get us to the bank of a great river where joy and prosperity can be seen at the other side. Those of us who do not understand Life will drown as we try to swim across.  The Mind is the bridge. Learn to understand it, enrich it with knowledge, and we will reconnect to the Spiritual energies of the universe. Our collective unity will then form the bridge to achieve racial respect and prosperity.

An Independent African-American Religiosity | Religion


To each is a goal to which Allah turns him; then strive together (as in a race) towards all that is good. Wheresoever ye are, Allah will bring you together. For Allah has power over all things. – 

[Qur’an 2:148]

 

Accusations have been hurled against African-American Christians that they follow a “white man’s religion.” Similarly, African-American Muslims have been charged as being people following an “Arab religion.” The “Black Jew” is often considered an outsider in their faith especially as they try to make a life for themselves in Israel. In each of these cited examples the African-American Muslim, Christian or Jew is accused of “adopting the religion of the slave…
