Knowledge Born

Peace...

...teaching civilization to others...

This is a continuation of the email referenced in the previous post, Knowledge Build...

First, since your faith does advocate finding Truth in many scriptures, does that mean you invest time in the study of many religions to identify Truth? In doing so, do you seek the teachings that assist your understanding, while discarding specifically religious things, like who God is, or do you try to understand them in the perspective of the 5% teachings?

Well, I have in the past invested much time into the exegesis of scriptures, and still do from time to time. Many members do, because Truth can be found everywhere, even in a lie, because a lie is relevant only because Truth proceeds it. As for how these scriptures are approached, nothing is to be taken on face value, so I indeed study them with an eye of understanding. When I read the Holy Qur'an for example, I no longer read it as a Muslim, I read it as a man seeking Knowledge Wisdom & Understanding. It's the same with other scriptures...Reading them from the Right Angle can validate anyone's beliefs, and aid in search of their relative Truth, so I indeed have found references to validate the existence of the 5%. Example, I see every bringer of revelation as part of the 5% of their time, and where appropriate, i put myself into the position of say, Job in this situation, or Ezekiel in this situation, or Allah in that situation, Buddha at this stage, Jesus/Isa at that stage, Moses/Musa or David/Dawud at this or that stage of development, Muhammad or even Gabriel/Jabril in that situation. I apply the situations that they were faced with practically, pragmatically, and I take the same approach to the Lessons of the 5%. There's nothing new under the Sun, only renewed. And above all, these scriptures were written by men, I being a man, can relate definitely. I tend to lean toward the esoteric and allegorical meanings in the scriptures also, in order to better understand my inner self. In soul searching, I studied and practiced religions before coming into the True Knowledge of myself, and never found what my soul/sol was seeking until I came across Allah's Teachings.


Second, you said that your answers don't necessarily reflect the Nation's teachings. Does this mean that the faith invests a lot of the theology in the individual members? That is, do they ask you to find your own truth/interpretation?
That's Right and Exact. Although we share the same Knowledge, We all lead different lives, so no one can live on another man or woman's Understanding and be successful. We must all come to our Own Understanding in order to remain Free-Thinking beings. I can recall when I was first under the study, and was told that "We're not making robots":) We all share our Understanding with one another, sometimes we agree, sometimes we disagree, sometimes we agree to disagree, just like any other family. As long as We all share the same Knowledge/Foundation, We remain Free-Thinkers with our individual Free Minds/Free-Domes. when I referred to the herd mentality last time, I was implying that religious thinking, as far as rituals, etc., may have been originally designed to show unity between members, but when blind faith enters the picture, and conformity becomes the order of the day, people's minds become wet clay, pliable to the hands that lead them (whether those hands have good intentions or are corrupt), and in some cases, they become cattle or sheep led to the slaughter. This isn't my entire view of religion, because again, it's useful to bring people to a righteous path, Zealotry isn't healthy though, the wars that have gone on, and continue to, because of differences in religion (or politics, race, gender, etc.) have cost many lives, and with the weapons available to man now, who knows what people will do "in the name of God" when the ego is driving zealotry? Ideally, the evolution of human consciousness will bring this to a halt (according to the Mayan Calendar), but we shall see.


Third, considering the wide variety of sources you look for to understand yourself, are there specific writings that the 5% percenters publish to aid in understanding?
As of late, there are many members of the Nation of Gods and Earths who are publishing works on many different aspects. Allah Jihad is one Brother who put out the book "The Immortal Birth" within the last 2 years. Dr. Supreme Understanding Allah is today (July 19) holding a book signing for a work he's been promoting, "How to Hustle and Win"...It's not about the 5% specifically, from what I understand, but definitely from the perspective of a True 5%er. That brings to mind another book that I've read recently by a Caucasian Muslim...Michael Muhammad Knight (Azreal Wisdom), "The Five Percenters: Islam, Hip-Hop, and The Gods of New York". it's an excellent read, heavily researched, and thorough in his study of/with Us. I versed with him maybe 2 years back, helped him in his research a bit. The book most recommended for beginners is "Message to the Black Man in America", by The Honorable Elijah Muhammad. It was one of the 1st books to really give me a good start on where the teachings of The Nation of Gods and Earths originated. Within the last few weeks there's been a release of a fictional novel specifically released for Gods & Earths with all Lessons in memorization (it's difficult to understand otherwise), entitled "Da God", by Emblem Allah. . There are links below for reference...

Fourth, in regards to your statement that Caucasians have "the ability to purify themselves" through religion, does that mean that your faith advocates Caucasians to do so through your faith specifically?
Well, Azreal Wisdom is just one example of a Caucasian 5%er. We have never been against Caucasians, and their struggle to live with Freedom, Justice, and Equality. There's many ways to leading to Truth, and religion, if one is sincere (no matter what their color), can be used as a path, It has it's limits though. The teachings of the 5% include everyone, but it's not for everyone. Religion, in my opinion, was created for only a few reasons, to brainwash and mislead Original People who were dissatisfied with the previous status quo of holding the responsibility of being Allah and for the masses who could not understand what it meant to be the Supreme Being, in order to satisfy their inclination to spirituality. This was prior to Caucasians domination of the planet (also let me know that I see a clear distinction between spirituality and religion). After the Caucasians time to rule began 6093 years ago, more religions were created to attempts to bring order to the uncivilized nature that they displayed, before the especially before the European Renaissance, with the Prophet Muhammad being the last to bring a revelation in order to try and civilize the Caucasians using the Arabians (this is why he was called the Last, the Seal of the Prophets, he was indeed so for Caucasians). This was Islam given as a religion, revealed in Arabic so that it couldn't be easily corrupted without being obvious (the Arabic Language is one of the most pure languages left on the planet). I know from experience that if this religion is practiced properly, it leads one to be truly Muslim, in the sense of being one of Peace. It though was corrupted soon after the death of Muhammad. Islam, along with other religions have all been used to retain the power of those in power. Obvious example, the Catholic Church...the Vatican is the smallest, yet one of the richest states on the planet, yet we all by now know of the corruption within their system. They have been controlling minds for years, using the name of Jesus to get people to believe in them, not in what Jesus REALLY stood for (a rebel/revolutionary in his time). The same with Saudi Arabia (why is it no longer just called Arabia?), and the nation/state of Israel (Is-Ra-El?)...The mind control exhibited by the 3 major monotheistic religions is the greatest science experiment know in this time. But again, many people can go through them with sincerity and come out righteous. It's not religious people that I have issues with, it's the institution of religion as a whole. One of our lessons asks, "And can you reform him (the devil)?, and is answered (excerpt)..."No. All of the prophets have tried to reform him (the devil), but were unable to do so. So, We agreed that it cannot be done, unless we graft him back to the Original Man, which takes 600 years..." All of the above that I've just stated falls under that lesson, the prophets who left their revelations and teachings, knew that in the long run that the nature of Caucasians could not be fully understood by them and reconciled (Muhammad died from his heart attack knowing this, as a result of his poisoning some time before by his Jewish wife, as well as the literal heart-break...Jesus before him, said they know now what they do when the Romans/Caucasians put him to death, and Moses saw the reluctance of his people to change with the time he was presenting them with, the Age of Aries, while they chose to stick with the Age of Taurus the "Golden" BULL), until the time was right. That time is Now, ever since Allah revealed himself on Earth, yaum-ud-deen, or the Day of Judgement/Reckoning that was long ago predicted is now upon us, also known as the Age of Aquarius, the age after the "2 Fish" of Jesus (Age of Pisces).


And since you must understand the "Original People" does this mean that there must be an acknowledgment of the superiority of the Original people or the slandering nature of the Caucasian?
I wouldn't say that it's an acknowledgment of the superiority of Original People, it would be for the most part vain and egotistical, to want worship of any kind from Caucasians. The fact is simply that physically mentally and spiritually Original people are more inclined to be dominant (not superior, but Supreme), when taken outside of the context of Eurocentric worldview, and looked at from a global and universal perspective. Bearing witness to this, begins to free the mind of a Caucasian that is used to being caught up in the matrix of the Eurocentric worldview. Another thing thatmust be understood while it's on my mind...Caucasians are nearing genetic annihilation, maybe within the next 1000 years or so. Those Caucasians who are "at the top of the totem pole" know this for a fact, and just as any species or race of creature on Earth (including original People, say, in the urban demographic), if their existence is threatened, the instinct of survival kicks into high gear. Let's say you were a prisoner of war, and found a gun with 3 bullets, but you're surrounded by 5 guards. You would indeed still try to escape, even if you knew the odds were stacked against you. The Caucasians "@ the top", in trying to survive extinction caused by "race mixing", are willing to sacrifice their own, the average working Joe or the guy down the street tht enlisted, along with the genocide of Original People, in order that their so-called "elite" can retain their position of dominance over the planet Earth. So, it's survival of the fittest, and population control is being implemented along with other misc. "covert operations", like the current moves to dominate the Middle East and it's resources (that, plus it's strategic military positioning). It's not really that we want acknowledgment of superiority, so to speak. In reality, as Supreme Beings wel aware of our Peaceful Nature, we just want Peace and no more oppression from the top, but Peace is only to be found within in this day and time. It's possible for the Caucasian people also, especially in this time of human evolution, but it really kicked in for them in the 1960's, when they began to break free from the ways of their parents. they had the right idea, but went to the extremes with the drug abuse, etc.

What we emphasize is Knowledge of Self above anything, even for Caucasians, but specifically for Original People who have been blinded to who we are over the last 6 or 7 millennia. for example, since the time that Allah revealed 1st himself in the 1960's (and we can even go back to the 30's and 40's when Elijah Muhammad was saying that we were the Original People of the planet Earth), many revelations have come (from Science) about of what we were teaching in the 1st place, that Black People are the Original People of the planet earth, this wasn't something widely accepted in the (Eurocentric) scientific community until I'd say the last 20 or so years, mainly due to the influences of Caucasian superiority complexes (not really found throughout the world outside of Europe, the United States of America, and their respective empires), and the impact of religion, especially fundamentalist Christianity with the belief that all men were created only 6000 years ago, & that was what they wanted their 2 billion+ followers to believe. When over 99% of the world's population are being led by 1% who want to keep them blind to themselves and the power that we all possess, Knowledge of Self is Priceless, no matter how you get it!!!!!


Fifth, with the references to the "8 bodies of lessons," to what do your refer?
Finally, you made a number of statements about Science, and the Science of Islam. Do you mean literal science, like Chemistry? If so, how does this relate to religion?
The 8-Point Lessons, as we call them, are a body of Lessons that we Collectively call Supreme Mathematics, Supreme Alphabet, and 120 Degrees (Knowledge and Wisdom of the Cipher). In these can be found the Sciences of EVERYTHING in Life, and one can only Understand that after internalizing the Lessons, and allowing the border between the conscious and subconscious minds dissolve.
Broken down into 8 planes of study, the Lessons are memorized by our members. They are purely Science based, although on face value, they would appear to be based in religion...They are as follows:

1. Supreme Mathematics
2. Supreme Alphabet
3. Student Enrollment (1-10)
4. English Lesson No. C-1 (1-36)
5. Lost-Found Muslim Lesson #1 (1-14)
6. Lost-Found Muslim Lesson #2 (1-40)
7. Actual Facts (1-13)
8. Solar Facts (1-9)


The latter 6 were "secret teachings" of the Nation of Islam (called the Supreme Wisdom by Elijah Muhammad), that were taken to the youth of Harlem in 1964 after being refined for better understanding, and can be dissected & "drawn up" using the Supreme Mathematics and Supreme Alphabet as . These lessons are taught per oral tradition, as the shaman and griots of other cultures around the world pass on their Knowledge. The lessons are internalized, and used when cross referenced, they are used to gain understanding of all of the human families of the planet earth and their innate natures, physics, metaphysics, quantum physics, history, chemistry, biology, psychology, philosophy, theology, economics, language, astronomy, politics, geopolitics, religion, war, peace, geography, electromagnetism, sound, global warming, climate change, self creation, genetics, eugenics, civilization, anatomy, the now famous "law of attraction", freemasonry, spirituality, demographics, population control, the prophets and the source of their religions, etymology, eschatology, and many other things I can't think of right now. This is indeed a literal science that we study, for a science in simply a thorough body of knowledge, with no contradictions, just as pure mathematics has no contradictions. When I say the Science of Islam, it's the Science of Knowing one's Self, the Science of Peace (Peace of Mind comes from Knowledge of Self), and one can only be at Peace when he or she is free to know & be one's self, so one must be their Own Master (I Self Lord Am Master, I Stimulate Life and Matter are 2 acronyms which we use). Our teachings are not intended at all to be religious, although some of our members tend to be religious about our teachings, and as a consequence their minds are not open to the science within the teachings. It may fill their need to belong to something, but will not fulfill them and give them peace of mind.

Religion itself, as an institution, is a science, falls right under psychology, remote control of the mind. A religious zealot, and a schizophrenic man are no different, in they they both separate their personalities from their source, which is their own True Self. the god that has been distorted in religion, is none other than Man's True Self. God and Man have always been One, to separate the two is insanity, and a house divided cannot stand. It must also be understood that the potential for devil/transgression of natural law exists within every man also, and this is where religion can enlighten, alerting man to that possibility. I do stress though, from both observation and experience, that religion in any form is not to be taken on face value. I don't really condemn religion, I appreciate and respect the power it has, I just don't condone it, especially for myself.

It was said by Einstein, "Science without religion is lame, religion without science is blind." I agree, because pure science it not always 100% logical. For example, look at the paradox of Light, it's both a wave, AND a particle, takes a degree of imagination to understand that, definitely needs some right-brain thinking. Science appeals to the spiritual nature of man and mankind, knowing and understanding the laws of science/nature, one cannot transgress them without knowing and accepting the negative consequences thereof, and in turn a Scientific Man is inclined to be a Righteous Man. A man who is blinded by religion, and ignorant to the Laws of Nature, will not Value life as it should be valued. That's why so many are ready to kill "in the name of God" at the drop of a hat. Sincerity is the key when dealing with religion, and the ability to evolve as your spirit beckons, instead of letting your ego "be right" about "your religion" being the only way to Truth. The same goes for Us, there is no compulsion, the Best of Us live what we teach, and that is the purpose anyway.

I like to say that I have a tendency to go "overboard" when I expound on Our teachings, it's natural for me to be loquacious though (I'm a Gemini). Like I stated before, there's SO much more to Our teachings that it'd literally take the rest of my life to get it all out. I certainly appreciate your open-mindedness, from your questions, it seems you have heard a bit about Us, and I'm not sure if all that you heard was true, so I've been striving to make things as clear as possible. If you can come up with any other questions, I'll be glad to answer them as time allows.

Peace...

Build Knowledge

Peace...

I’ve got a few thoughts rotating in my third right now, that I want to make manifest...

@ my justice cipher born I’m currently going thru a training unit what’s called "Coach Track Training", basically a program designed for prospective members of management...Many of the current coaches/managers there didn’t go thru with this study fully, & it shows...anyway, I was going over where the fundamentals of management as can be found in 120, and Equality obvious answers jumped out in no limit of time...12-14*, 1-14, and 18-20*, 1-40...They all deal with the Science of Managing people...

They don’t Know that I already have this on cap @ the justice, but they can detect with the naked eye that I’m gonna blow ’em out the water sooner or later if they keep half-assing, it’s scaring ‘em too lol..One intended to make a move to try & get me kicked out the program a couple days ago (& was of course unsuccessful, fuckin haters 10*, 1-14), which brought me to these thoughts re: the corporate world...That along with the fact that I have a determined idea for my OWN corporation, using their inside Knowledge & Wisdom to see what & how their world works (while getting paid), so that when I set up my trading post, I won’t make the mistakes made by those I’m now studying under…so, w/o further ado, What & How to Manage/Lead people as Allah in the Corporate World, per 120...

12*, 1-14...What is the meaning of FOI?..."the military training given..."; Military=Militate=to affect change...The way to affect change is to put things in the Supreme ORDER of Knowledge Wisdom, plain & simple...Teach Knowledge & Wisdom in that ORDER (2*, 1-14 another one that fits this topic)…
13*, 1-14...What is the meaning of Capt. & Lieut.?..."The duty of the captain is to give ORDERs to the lieutenant, & the lieutenants duty is to"...Once again, giving order to things, makes sure that what’s expected is Known & understood, & if the Captain isn’t physically present, the "LIEU"-"TENANT", can act "in the place of" the Captain with no discrepancies...when it’s given to you str8, give it to the people str8
14*, 1-14...What is the meaning of MGT...?...MGT can be drawn up as a abbreviation for ManaGemenT, basically this training unit is teaching how-to’s (tutorial) get certain things done, to once again, keep ORDER within the Square, which can only be done when there’s Knowledge of said expectations of the Culture...

18*, 1-40 (Today’s Degree)...What is the Duty of..."To teach"..A manager, or anyone in a leadership position for that matter, has the inescapable Duty to teach, not only Knowing what to Build on, but also Knowing the who’s, where’s, whens, HOWs (most important) & why the Building to take place in the 1st place..Just knowing what to build ain’t enuff, you can have a blueprint right in front of you, but who’s needed to put it in place? Where’s the building gonna take place? When can this be done most efficiently? HOW it is all going to get done according to specs? Why is it being done in the 1st place, & should it be done? I use this approach daily when giving certain jewels to certain people, it keeps one from losing time, definitely!...
19*, 1-40...If a Civilized person doesn’t perform his duty what must be done?..."...a SEVERe punishment..."...being severed from the duty if the Knowledge possessed isn’t Borned right & Exact, plain & simple...Note that this is one of ONLY 2 degrees in 120 that the word "if" is used...I’m one who’s always advocated what is & what will be, as opposed to what "if"...hypothetics have some room in 360, but not much (6 degrees or less)...
20*, 1-40...of a said person of that ability..."...held responsible"...In leading people, one is held responsible, not for their actions, but for the Wisdom that YOU add to their Cipher. When you give the people some fucked up Yacubish Wisdom, & they manifest same, then who’s "fault" was/is it? All of the above is caused by the Sun of Man...Yeah, in the corporate world, the people are putting their asses on the line, yet it’s the one who’s leading them that will be held responsible 1st & foremost…

As I type, there are 3 more degrees that come to mind in relation to this Science, the 9*, 1-14, 10*, 1-14 and the 11*, 1-14...Those 3 degrees show the firmness one must have when dealing with people, Be fair & give them a chance of course, & those that show that they can’t be reformed, well, they gotta go, & your word being bond, ain’t no getting’ around that…That’s how it’s done, & of course there are other Laws & Regulations not mentioned in this lesson, only so much of what & how I think can be put into written word…

Take from this what you will, add-on as you will…
Peace,
Allah Universal

Peace...

...What is the Duty of a Civilized Person?...

I received an email recently, from what I presume to be a colored man seeking detailed info regarding what the Nation of Gods & Earths teaches. It's a result of me posting in the wikipedia discussion board sometime ago, and I left my email there for personal correspondence ( just checked here, it's been archived)..The questions were well asked, and the correspondence will continue, because there's more that have been asked...below is the 1st batch...

Peace...

1st, I'd like to ask your pardon for the delay, I've been rather busy lately, and havent gotten around to this reply as soon as I would have liked to. 2ndly, thank you for providing an opportunity of dialouge...

I'll answer your questions as presented. The answers, of course, will be from my perspective, and not the Nation as a whole, for the understanding of our teachings varies from member to member...please pardon any spelling mistakes, as I tend to type rather quickly to try & keep up with my thoughts...

One of the repeated questions in the article, and I would presume for your faith in general, is how the Nation views people of European ancestry. I have been unable to find a direct and clear point. Particularly, I want to understand the differences in the Nation of Gods and Earths beliefs as opposed to the Nation of Islam. Does your faith hold that white men are the devil? And if so, is it possible for a white man to be liberated from his devil-state?
The teachings that we advocate do state that the Caucasian peoples are the result of controlled eugenics, deviations of nature from the Original People of the planet Earth who lived many millenia in harmony with the planet. The word devil is used to describe the Caucasian people as a whole, but without a layman's definition. I understand that the word devil carries strong religious connotations, however, our teachings are not to be taken on face value, as the Nation of Islam does. Devil, when taken etymologically (sp), is derived from the Greek "diablos", meaning one who slanders, or accuses. In the approx. 6000+ years that Caucasians have existed, their existence has birthed unprovoked wars, political corruption, enslavement and/or genocide of entire tribes of people (continuation of controlled eugenics), pollution increasing at an alarming rate (including the nuclear fallout that continues to travel within our atmosphere), the depletion of the ozone layer, global warming, increase in unnatural weather patterns, etc. All of this is today due to misuse of nature, and deviation from the natural inclination to live in Peace and Harmony with Life on the planet Earth.

Where the slander and/or accusations come into play, no nation ruled by Caucasians has ever taken blame for the disturbance of nature that we and our children now suffer through (hell on Earth), the blame is always placed elewehere. It may not be intentional, but the fact remains that acting against nature has its consequences, for the planet and Universe are always seeking balance. To bring it to a more personal level, Original Asiatic People (black, brown, & yellow people) in North America have suffered the worst treatment possible at the hands of Caucasians, and continue to. So the emotional use of the word devil is stressed, as a release of frustration, especially by the Nation of Islam (less so now, since their current leader has been striving to become more diplomatic in his international relations). However, in the Nation of Gods and Earths, the general concensus is that we lose no time showing negative emotion toward Caucasians, for our 1st duty is to know and better our Own Selves. One must not direct hate or anger towards an entire race of people if that is the goal. At the same time, we do acknowledge the history of the Caucasians, which has been distorted in the mainstream. Overall, we acknowledge and accept civilized people, regardless to their genetic makeup, for the mental and spiritual makeup will dominate the physical being.

As for Caucasians having the ability to purify themselves, as indivuduals, yes, everyone has the choice to mentally and spiritually mature here on Earth, it's one of the main purposes of Life. There are many Caucasians who have proven this in their nobility (too many names to put here), and their sincere desire to uplift themselves from their nature. In Truth, religion is specifically for Caucasians to use as a tool to do so. The more corrupt ones have used it to brainwash/ mentally and spiritually arrest Original People as well as their own, which I'll get more into later. This may sound cliche, but it is a fact that there are Caucasians who are studying our teachings in full sincerity. We advocate 35-50 years of studying the nature of the Universe, their own nature, as well as the nature of Original People. Science is the quickest way to understanding the place of all of the human families of the planet Earth.

In regards to the sacred texts of the Nation, do you still hold to the Qu'ran and the Sunna? Do you invoke the wisdom of the Hadith? And does the faith belong to any of the traditional Muslim schools of jurisprudence? Finally, there has been some disagreement on the dietary traditions of the Nation. Do you continue to abstain from pork? How about alcohol?
The Holy Qu'ran and Sunna are not requisites in the Nation of Gods and Earths, although many of us use them for reference. There's really only one requisite- Know thyself. Some such as myself honor and respect the Truth in all scriptures, however we all agree that they have been tampered with between the time that the prophets revealed them, and now. The Holy Qur'an bearwitness to this Truth regarding the Holy Bible specifically. If I recall correctly (I was a practicing Muslim for a year or so before I began studying the teachings of the 5%), there is a Hadith where Muhammad stated to one or more of his inner circle (companions), that he who knows himself, knows his Lord. The closest to our teachings actually, would be the Sufi tradition, who sought to become one with Allah, until there was no difference between he and Allah. As for the 5% belonging to any of the traditional or orthodox schools of Islam, I would have to reply with a strong no. The religion of Islam is studied by many members, however, the Science of Islam is what we live and advocate. the 5 pillars and the 7 articles of faith were are not required. We have 2 rules generally...no consumption of swine, and no homosexuality. Also, it's strongly suggested that members fast according to their needs (not only from food drink and sex), and that all 8 bodies of lessons be memorized, so that the subconsious mind can internalize them and bring them into reality (not much different from the Hafiz, who memorize the entire Holy Qur'an). Aside from that, we advocate Freedom, Justice, and Equality for all peoples. Every Man or Woman has as their birthright to live as they choose, as long as it doesn't impose upon the Freedom of others. Religion, getting back to etymology, comes from the Latin "religare", to bind, or tie back. Ideally, it's designed to restrain the impulsive nature of Man and Mankind, it has been used however, to bind humanity from evolution, causing a herd mentality because there are some who would rather maintain their control over people, for various reasons. We are not held to any religious standards, and though we all agree on the 2 rules above, every member otherwise does what is best for his or her existence as an individual. I guess the best way to describe our world view would be existentialism :)

I hope that this begins to clarify our teachings a bit more. If you have any further ?s or concerns, we can continue this dialouge, I'm more than happy to set any misunderstandings straight.

Peace...

Yeah yeah, I know, Aleister was a satanist, he was on point with this though...

70 Ways to Increase Your Brain Power

1. Breath deep. More air in means more oxygen in the blood and therefore in the brain. Breath through your nose and you'll notice that you use your diaphragm more, drawing air deeper into your lungs. Several deep breaths can also help to relax you, which is conducive to clearer thinking.

2. Meditate. A simple meditation you can do right now is just closing your eyes and paying attention to your breath. Tensing up your muscles and then relaxing them to start may help. When your mind wanders, just bring your attention back to your breath. Five or ten minutes of this will usually relax you, clear your mind, and leave you more ready for any mental task.

3. Sit up straight. Posture affects your thinking process. Prove it to yourself by doing math in your head while slouching, looking at the floor and letting your mouth hang open. Then do the mental math while sitting up straight, keeping your mouth closed and looking forward or slightly upwards. You'll notice that it's easier to think with the latter posture.

4. Phosphotidyl Serine (PS). This supplement has been shown in clinical studies to increase lucidity and rate of learning. It activates cell-to-cell communication, helps regulate cell growth, improves the functioning of the special receptors found on cells, and prepares cells for activity. In other words, it can help your brain power. It's also thought to reverse memory decline. Phosphatidylserine has no known adverse side effects.

5.Vinpocetine. This extract, derived from an alkaloid found in the Periwinkle plant, is used as a cerebral vasodilator. It increases blood flow to the brain, which improves its oxygenation and thereby increases mental alertness and acuity. Research suggests it may also be the most powerful memory enhancer available to date.

6. Gingko Biloba. The leaves of this tree have been proven to increase blood flow to the brain. The trees are often planted in parks. My friends and I used to eat a few leaves when we wanted a brain boost. It is also inexpensive, if you buy the capsules or tea at any health food store.

7. Saint John's Wort. This is a common weed that may be growing in your yard. Although it's brain enhancing qualities are less documented (studies do show it's usefulness for treating long-term depression), many people swear by it's temporary mood-elevating effect, and our brains tend to function better when we are happy. It is inexpensive, but I used to just collect it in the yard and make tea of it. (Hyperacum Perforatum, if you want to look it up by it's botanical name.)

8. Good thinking habits. Just use a problem solving technique for several weeks and it will become a habit. Redesign everything you see for a while, and that will become a habit. You can develop many good thinking habits with some effort, and then be more resourceful effortlessly from that point on. Use the power of habit.

9. Use dead time. This is time that is otherwise wasted or just under-utilized. Driving time, time spent in waiting rooms, or even time spent raking your yard can be included in this. With a tape player and a trip to a public library, you can start to use this time to listen to books-on-tape. You may spend 200 hours a year in your car. What could you learn in that time?

10. Learn a language. Learning a new language has been shown to halt the age-related decline in brain function. It also introduces your mind to new concepts and new ways of looking at things (in English we are afraid, whereas in Spanish we have fear). It is one of the best brain exercises.

11. Rosemary. This common herb may have an effect on the brain when the scent is inhaled. We are waiting for the research, but some people swear that just sniffing rosemary wakes up their brain. It seems safe, so if you have rosemary in your spice rack, give it a try.

12. Mindfulness exercises. Concentration and clear thinking are more or less automatic once you remove distractions. Learn to stop and watch your busy mind. As you notice things that are subtly bothering you, deal with them. This might mean making a phone call you need to make, or putting things on a list so you can forget them for now. With practice, this becomes easier, and your thinking becomes more powerful.

13. Write. Writing is good for your mind in a number of ways. It is a way to tell your memory what is important, so you'll recall things more easily in the future. It is a way to clarify your thinking. It is a way to exercise your creativity and analytical ability. Diaries, idea-journals, poetry, note-taking and story-writing are all ways to use writing to boost your brain power.

14. Listen to Mozart. In a study at the University of California, researchers found that children who studied piano and sang daily in chorus, were much better at solving puzzles, and when tested, scored 80% higher in spatial intelligence than the non-musical group. In another study, 36 students were given three spatial reasoning tests on a standard IQ test. Just before the first test, they listened to Mozart's sonata for Two Pianos in D Major, K. 448 for ten minutes. Before the second test, they listened to a relaxation tape. Before the third, they sat in silence. The average scores for all 36 students: 1st test: 119. 2nd test: 111. 3rd test: 110. A nine-point boost from Mozart!

15. Develop your intuition. Intuition can be an important part of brainpower. Einstein and others have relied heavily on their intuitive hunches. See Chapter 25 for tips on how to develop your intuition.

16. Avoid foods that cause subtle allergies. These can include wheat, corn, peanuts and dairy products. Watch yourself to see if you have a problem with any of these. They cause digestive problems and brain fog in some people.

17. Sleep better. As long as you get a certain amount of sleep - probably a minimum of five hours - the quality seems to be more important than the quantity. Also, short naps in the afternoon seem to work well to recharge the brain for some people.

18. Caffeine. The research shows higher test scores for students who drink coffee before major exams. My chess game gets better. In other studies, it has been shown that too much caffeine leads to poorer quality decisions. Caffeine affects individuals differently, and has some nasty long-term side effects for some of us, but short-term - it works!

19. Avoid sugar. Any simple carbohydrates can give you "brain fog." Sometimes called the "sugar blues" as well, this sluggish feeling makes it hard to think clearly. It results from the insulin rushing into the bloodstream to counteract the sugar rush. Avoid pasta, sugars, white bread and potato chips before any important mental tasks.

20. Hypnosis audios. The power of suggestion is real, and one way to use it is with hypnosis tapes, CD's or downloads. This type of brain "programing" has more evidence for it than subliminals.

21. Speed reading. Contrary to what many believe, your comprehension of material often goes up when you learn to speed-read. You get to learn a lot more in less time, and it is definitely a good brain exercise.

22. Exercise. Long term exercise can boost brainpower, which isn't surprising. Anything that affects physical health in a positive way probably helps the brain too. Recent research, though, shows that cognitive function is improved immediately after just ten minutes of aerobic exercise. If you need a brain recharge, you might want to walk up and down the stairs a few times.

23. Imaginary friends. Talking to and getting advice from characters in your mind can be a great way to access the information in your subconscious mind. Imagine a conversation with a person who has a lot of knowledge in the area you want advice in.

24. Develop your creativity. Creativity gives power to your thinking. Raw computation can be done by computers now, but humans provide the creative thought that shapes our world.

25. Learn more efficiently. When you decide to learn something, take notes from the start. Leave each "learning session" with a question or two in mind, to create anticipation and curiosity. Take short breaks, so there will be more beginnings and endings to your studies (Things learned at the beginning or ending of a class or session are remembered better).

26. Use techniques for clear thinking. Cluttered rooms and offices can contribute to cluttered thinking. Organize a space for mental work. Sigh, stretch, and take a deep breath before you start on a tough mental job. Plan some distraction-free time for brainstorming.

27. Brain wave entrainment. The newest brain wave entrainment products are powerful tools for altering your brain function. Some will almost immediately relax you, while others will put your brain waves in a pattern that is most conducive to analytical thinking.

28. Creatine. This is a compound found in meat, used by athletes to help build muscle. Now the evidence is here to show that it helps your brain as well. Proceedings B , a journal published by the Royal Society reports that the research showed improvement in working memory and general intelligence resulting from creatine supplementation. The dose used in the study was 5 grams per day. This is about the level used to boost sports performance, and is as much as you'd normally get in four pounds of meat, according to lead researcher Dr. Caroline Rae.

29. Talk. Talking is only good for the brain if you are actually exercising it, of course. Try explaining something that you don't understand very well to a friend, though, and you'll notice that the process of explaining will help you clarify your understanding.

30. Do something you enjoy. This is a way to both lower stress and rev up your brain. The key is to do something active. Watching TV doesn't count. Whether it is playing Scrabble or building birdhouses, when you are actively engaged in an activity that you enjoy, you worry less about things and you start to think better.

31. Adjust your beliefs. Believe you are smarter, and you'll become smarter. For this, affirmations may work, but even better is evidence. Make a note of your successes. Tell yourself, "Hey, that was really creative," when you do something creative. When you have a good idea, make a note of it. Gather the evidence for your own intelligence and you'll start to experience more of it.

32. Brain exercises. Do math in your mind while driving. Think of a new use for everything you see. Regular use of the brain has been shown to generate new neuronal growth, and even halt the decline of mental function that often comes with age.

33. Learn new things. This is another way to exercise the brain. It can also be done with little time investment if you use books-on-tapes while driving.

34. Walk. Exercise has been shown to benefit the brain, and walking is one of the best exercises for many. It is low impact, and the rhythmic nature of it seems to put you in a state that is very conducive to clear thinking. In fact, carry a tape recorder with you to take notes, and a twenty minute walk can be a great way to solve problems.

35. Model others. Find others that are creative, intelligent, or very productive. Do what they do, and think what they think. This is a key principle of neuro-linguistic programming. Be careful about taking their advice, though. Successful people often don't really understand why they are successful. Do what they do, not what they say.

36. Eat fish. Eating fish actually speeds up brain waves, and improves concentration. Researchers have also found an almost perfect correlation between intake of fish and lowered levels of depression in the various countries of the world. The U.S. has 24 times the incidence of depression as Japan, for example, where fish intake is much higher.

37. Avoid unnecessary arguments. When you defend a position too vigorously, especially when it is just to "win" the argument, you invest our ego into it. This is not conducive to the easy acceptance and use of new information. In other words, you put your mind in a rut, and you dig it deeper with each argument. Debate can be a valuable thing, but when the ego takes over, the mind closes a little. This is not a recipe for better thinking.

38. Laugh. The release of endorphins caused by laughter lowers stress levels, which is good for long term brain health. Laughter also tends to leave you more open to new ideas and thoughts.

39. Play. Stimulating the brain causes measurable changes in the structure of the brain. New connections are made and new brain cells are grown. Intellectual play, as well as any playing that involves hand-eye coordination stimulates the brain.

40. Do puzzles. Crossword puzzles, lateral thinking puzzles, and even good riddles are a great way to get brain exercise. You can work on them while waiting for a dentist appointment, or on the bus, if you are short on time.

41. Sing. When you are alone in your car, try singing about something you are working on. This taps into and exercises your right brain. Have you ever noticed how it is easier to rhyme when you sing than when you just speak or write? This is because the right brain is better at pattern recognition. By doing this brain exercise regularly you can train yourself to tap into the power of the right brain. This will make you a more effective problem-solver. If you doubt the distinction between the hemispheres of the brain, look at how stutterers can stop stuttering as soon as they start singing. Try it.

42. Nuts. University students in Brazil and other South American countries often eat several Brazil nuts before an exam, believing they are good for their mental power. The evidence is starting to confirm this. Other nuts that have minerals and amino acids that are beneficial to the brain include almonds and walnuts.

43. Olive oil. High in mono-unsaturated fat, olive oil has been shown to improve memory. A cheaper alternative is canola oil, but this hasn't been studied much yet.

44. Vitamin supplements. In studies, children scored higher on tests when on a regimen of daily vitamin supplements. "Experts" will tell you that if you eat a balanced diet, you don't need supplements, which, given the culture here, is really just a sales pitch for vitamins, isn't it? Who eats a perfectly balanced diet?

45. Fiber. It isn't just what goes in, but what comes out that is important to brain function. Toxic build-up in the body and brain can cause "brain fog." People often report clearer thinking as one of the benefits of curing their constipation.

46. Self awareness. This may not seem important to brain power, but it is. When you know yourself better, you can avoid the usual effects of ego and emotion in your seemingly "rational" thinking. Or you can at least take it into account. Watch yourself, especially as you explain things or argue.

47. Motivate yourself. Motivation is as important to mental tasks as it is to any other. Learn a few simple techniques for self motivation.

48. Avoid too much stress. Neuropsychiastrist Richard Restak, M.D., form the George Washington University School of Medicine and Health Services, sums up the research thus: "Stress causes brain damage." Long term stress has repeated been shown to hurt the brain, not to mention the rest of the body. Learn a few stress reduction techniques if you get stressed out often.

49. Get educated. Scientists have known for a while that the less educated get alzheimer's more frequently. Education in any area seems to make the brain stronger.

50. Avoid too much fat. In laboratory studies, animals consistently learn slower when they are on a diet high in fat. Type of fat may make a difference, so you may want to stick to using olive oil and other non-saturated fats. Saturated fats have been shown to actually stunt the growth of brain cells.

51. Eat less. Overeating has the immediate effect of redirecting more blood to the digestive process, leaving less for the brain. Long term, it can cause arterial obstructions that reduce blood flow to the brain permanently. In at least one study, rats on a restricted-calorie diet had more brainpower.

52. Avoid suspect foods. There is evidence that the following foods can be bad for your brain: Artificial food colorings, artificial sweeteners, colas, corn syrup, frostings, high-sugar drinks, hydrogenated fats, sugars, white bread, and any white-flour products.

53. Eat breakfast. When kids who didn't eat breakfast started to eat it, researchers found that their math scores went up a whole grade on average.

54. Avoid diabetes. The development of diabetes coincides with a dropping of IQ scores. In other words, if you want to maintain your brain power, follow your doctors dietary recommendations for preventing or treating diabetes.

55. Eat foods high in antioxidants. Antioxidants protect all your cells, including brain cells. Some of the foods highest in antioxidants include: prunes, raisins, blueberries, blackberries, garlic, kale, cranberries, strawberries, spinach, and raspberries. In one test, rats had age-related mental decline reversed by eating the equivalent of a 1/2 cup of blueberries per day.

56. Drink wine. In moderation, red wine can be good for the brain, it seems. It is rich in antioxidants, which protect brain cells. One glass per day for women and two for men is usually considered a safe and moderate amount.

57. Use alcohol in moderation. In a study at the University of Indiana School of Medicine, elderly light drinkers (fewer than 4 drinks per week) scored higher on tests of thinking abilities than non-drinkers. Those who drank 10 or more drinks per week scored lower. It is known that alcohol can kill brain cells, so moderation seems to be the key.

58. Folic acid. According to one study, 200 micrograms of folic acid, the amount found in 3/4 cup of cooked spinach, alleviates depression and reverses memory loss.

59. Potential brain foods. Other foods that may be good for your brain include: Avocados, bananas, lean beef, brewer's yeast. broccoli, brown rice, brussel sprouts, cantaloupe, cheese, chicken, collard greens, eggs, flaxseed oil, legumes, oatmeal, oranges, peanut butter, peas, potatoes, romaine lettuce, salmon, soybeans, spinach, tuna, turkey, wheat germ, and yogurt.

60. Vitamin E. Jean Carper, in researching her book, "Your Miracle Brain," found that many brain researchers are taking 400 I.U.s of vitamin E daily. It is an antioxidant, and reduces the clogging of blood vessels, including those going in the brain.

61. Vitamin C. Taken in the form of orange juice in a study at the Texas Women's University, vitamin C increased the IQ scores of children.

62. Selenium. 100 micrograms of selenium has been shown to be a mood-elevator. Your brain almost certainly functions better when you are in a better mood. Foods rich in selenium include Brazil nuts and garlic.

63. Alpha-lipoic acid. Alpha-lipoic acid (10 to 50 milligrams daily) improves memory and protects nerve cells.

64. Inositol. This is a safe and natural substance that is often grouped with the B-vitamins. It reduces stress and promotes clear thinking. It contributes to energy production, and so can "wake you up." Animal studies show a measurable increase in physical activity for up to five hours after taking it.

65. Huperzine A. This is a compound extracted from the Chinese club moss. Researchers both in Israel and the U.S. have used it to treat alzheimer's. It improves memory and learning an seems to be very safe.

66. Ask questions. This is a great way to keep your brain in shape. Just get in the habit of asking questions often, even if it is only in your own mind. Why are taller buildings better? what is the purpose of curbs? Ask anything that comes to mind, and ponder the possible answers.

67. Sniff basil. This another of the herbs that may be good for your brain. No studies yet, but many report a brain boost from smelling basil.

68. Temperature. Many people have noted that they think better at certain temperatures. In general, it seems that being slightly cool, but not uncomfortable, is most conducive to good thinking. Try experimenting on yourself to see what temperature works best for you.

69. Use systems. From the time I was ten years old, 12 x 49 was always (12 x 50) - 12. It's easier to figure in your head this way (588, by the way). I didn't get any credit for my personal algorithms then, but they are selling these shortcuts on late-night TV now, because they work. You can find your own easier ways to do mental math or other mental tasks, or read a good book on them.

70. Make a brainpower plan. It takes about twenty to thirty days of repetition to establish new habits, many psychologists will tell you. This means that when you create your plan for better brainpower, be sure you plan to use that new problem solving technique, or eat those new brain foods for at least three weeks. You can use many of the brain boosters here and get immediate results, but it is creating new habits that will give you the most brainpower.

Thangs done changed on this side...

Peace...

Just wanted to post some random thoughts today...

Digging deep into my subconsious mind took me back to a time when everything seemed fine...I was about 9 or so, I can recall how I was shining brighter than my peers...hadn't been around that many years, but the older folks swore I'd been here before...the whole world I wanted to explore, & there was this half Mexican/half Black girl in my grade 4 who I adored more than I could contain or explain...the power of persuasion was in my hand, and Hip-Hop was taking a stand...'87, that was my favorite shit God, it was Heaven, I wish I could blog back then...but shit changed when I was 10, I discovered that I had been a public school experiment...they shipped me to a gifted and talented school, because my elementary was being run by fools, they had no idea what to do with me & my brilliance...had to start over & make new friends again, never seen so many white people before, I felt like a damn alien to the core...Got hooked on phonics & dropped all my ebonics...My A grades from before was just Bs & Cs there, had to play the role of a square for me & my nappy ass hair to fit in..."Who the fuck am I kiddin", I would think to my self, "my ghetto ass don't belong in this place", seemed like a waste of my time...All this damn homework, & talk about politics, man I'm just starting to grow hair on my dick, I don't wanna hear this shit!...It's too damn cold outside to be waiting on this long ass bus ride, all because my teachers decided I was too much for them & their remedial books...Taking a look back though, that experience allowed me to grow, & to be more Universal...It was a blessing that I saw as a curse, but but but wait it gets worse!!!!

Fast-forward to 6th grade, my ma still couldn't afford to send me to the shop for a fade, so a lot of hate & rage had built up...these crackers telling me what I can be, what they lacked was the ability to see where I was from...the land of Man made blind deaf & dumb, you might call it the hood, but I called it the woods, the hunting grounds, where you can get shot down for nuthin more then the Jordans on your feet, or that black 8-Ball jacket on your back...them Chi-Town niggas didn't play when they moved around my way...Going home to that, how was I to believe that I could acheive a degree, let alone 3?...all the while being hated on by adults for my compulsion to be more than just another pulse...what's wack was even my mama was jealous maybe, & hated on me for being me...nah, in fact, I'm sure of that..."Ain't nobody told you to go to school & be so damn smart"...hearing shit like that is guaranteed to break a child's heart...From that day forward I saw my self as a Man, who the fuck needs a father & why bother to stand for some grand idea that can't be real...Life was a bitch, so fuck her, imma deal with it...& 10 years later I REALLY didn't give a shit...

By then I had dropped outta college, thought I was DMX in Belly, "Fuck Knowledge!"...To others I mighta been The Shit, but to myself, I truly believed wasn't shit, just like they told me when I was a kid...suicide crossed my mind by the time I was 21 ...beleve it or not, like Mel Gibson in Lethal Weapon 1, kept a bullet specially for myself, all i needed was the right gun...an atheist with the shakiest faith, liquored down weeded up, needing & wanting nuthin more than a safe with a couple million bucks, willing in my mind to buck at anybody who tested me, they'd just be S.O.L.ely Shit Outta Luck, cause I wasn't the one to give a fuck, that's what was up...my nephews & niece really saved my life, it was for them that I kept up the fight against my weaker self...& there was some words that I had heard before that stuck in my head, that there IS a chance for the mentally dead...couldn't remember for the life of me who said it, but I couldn't shut it up or dead it, no matter how much I tried...

Then the Oracle came along, saying "Know thyself", & in the back of my mind on some top shelf, I knew I was wrong for tempting death...Wasn't long before I started to clean up my act, the death wish disappeared, & I had the wind at my back...After a while met some Brothers who had the same style as me, soaked up the game in Allah's Name, & since then I haven't been the same...I know who I Am, & that I AM THAT I AM, & really couldn't give a damn who thinks otherwise...Verily this is my Therapy...until you can see the world through my 3 Eyes, uh unh You Can't Tell Me Nuthin', I'm the only one who's been with me my whole Life, end of discussion...

Like I've said before in a previous post, I don't like to put my personal life out in the public, but if anybody can learn from this, than it's worth it...the most important part of the above, PLEASE be careful what you tell a child, they will NEVER forget it!!!!

Peace...
Allah Universal

p.s. I hold no grudges for my history, I just keep Building, ain't no mystery...

Hasty Generalization vs. Social Equality

Hasty Generalization vs. Social Equality

"All generalizations are dangerous, even this one."
Alexandre Dumas

Peace...

I'm back with a more organized thought today. This is a topic that's been on my mind for quite some time. It took a bit of research in the lab I call Life before I could come to the conclusions that'll be posted today. I'll do my best to keep this short & simple, so that it can be plainly understood, everyone who knows me though, knows my tendency to take things too far :)...This is written with the Nation of Gods & Earths (also known as Allah's 5%) in mind (newborns specifically), as the intended target audience, but is meant to benefit all readers...

Growing in the way I approach Life, I've learned that generalization (Hasty Generalization, specifically) , Just isn't the best way to deal in social equality. I can't go around categorizing people based on what I "think" I know about them "in general". Allah is Just and True in all of his dealings, and it simply isn't fair to pre-judge individuals based on what I already know, prior to meeting them. Judge not, & you shall not be judged...

Some people have a tendency to generalize when trying to persuade another to accept their point of view. Even I just generalized with that statement J It seems to be more of a political or rhetorical stance than a logical or scientific one, if you think about it. Some of the generalities I hear often are:

All Men cheat, because it's in their nature...All Women are emotional and lie because all of my ex-girlfriends/wives did... All white people are ___... All rappers talk about is ___...All babies are cute (I know some of you disagree with that one :P )...If you do this then ___...All smokers will get ___...All ___ are greedy...All Muslims are ___ or related to one...etc, etc, etc...

That's not to say that these statements can't be true in some cases, the key word though, is SOME cases! The trouble with blanket statements using the word "all", is that you're potentially telling only a half-truth, rather than a Universal Truth, which indeed would be true in ALL cases. It can be said that "All persons alive on the planet as you read this will die physically at one point or another", and that can be accepted as a Universal Truth. To "try" and limit this to something like "all people will die before their time is up because things are that bad on earth", can't be shown & proven to be true in ALL cases. If your "all"-encompassing statement can be counteracted by its opposite, it's probably not true.

The above is not limited just to people that don't know better than to take things on face value. In regards to the Nation of Gods specifically, there seems to be an all-encompassing way of looking at things as well, which violates the 9th degree in the 1-40 (...instead, they take...on face value). One of the points I want to address, is the tendency to group ALL people into 3 categories. I'm referring to what's known as the 85%, the 10%, & the 5% of the entire world's population.

For those who have no clue what I'm talking about, here's a briefing...(taken from the Lost-Found Muslim Lessons of the NOI, also known as the 1-40)

14) Who are the 85%?

The uncivilized people, poison animal eaters, slaves of a mental death & power; people who do not know who the True & Living God is, nor their origin in this world, and worship they know not what; people who are easy to lead in the wrong direction, and hard to lead in the Right direction.

15) Who are the 10%?

The rich slave-makers of the poor, who teach the poor that the Almighty True & living God is a spook, and cannot be seen by the physical eye. Otherwise known as blood-suckers of the poor

16) Who are the 5% on this poor part of the Planet Earth?

They are the poor Righteous Teachers, who do not believe in the teachings of the 10%, and are All-Wise and Know who the True & Living God is, and teach that the True & living god is the Son of Man, the Supreme Being Black Man of Asia, and teach Freedom, Justice, and Equality to all of the human families of the Planet Earth. Otherwise known as Civilized People, also are Muslims & Muslim Sons.

It is these words of The Honorable Elijah Muhammad, of February 20th, 1934, being used as a person's only measuring tool, that concern me.

side note: TRUST me when I say that there SO much more to these 3 Q&A's than meets the eye, that isn't where I want to go with this today though. (see previous MySpace blog entry "Did I Do Dat?" Hell Yeah U Did!...The 13th Degree for more details/the tip of the iceberg)

Understanding the context of the time, and what Elijah Muhammad was striving to do, these words made perfect sense for those who it was intended for. His intention is what mattered in this. The intention was to get his people (Muslims of the NOI), a glimpse of their potential, who they were, and where they fit into the society that they lived & breathed in. He knew that he was trying to reach people who were barely 70 years from under the yoke of institutional (read: physical) slavery, that may not have understood the hows & whys of why they seemed to have no control over their lives. Elijah gave them very general answers in these 3 lessons (it may have been the limit of his understanding at the time). For a basically uneducated people, who knew not much of the world around them, general answers is what they could easily grasp. Had he expounded too much, he would not have been able to do his job/duty as their leader, for he would have been way over their heads (with exceptions in the crowd, of course). In a nutshell, Elijah was telling them "Look, you have no civilization (14), this is why (15), and this is where you need to get to (16)." That was fine...for that time.

Now-A-Days, (this ain't the 1930s OR the 1960s!) I see it as being of the utmost importance to determine who a person is as an INDIVIDUAL! The average joe who isn't in the know re: the teachings of the Nation of Gods and Earths, I don't default him to the 85% category, just based on that. Getting to know him, I may learn that he doesn't eat pork (because it's in the Bible), but loves shrimp, that he's also an Christian who has no idea what "race" he is (his origin in this world), reads the Bible and prays daily (to a God he admits that he doesn't really know), that he sells bootleg movies, is a Mason, is bipolar, and is a law professor that believes in freewill. He also "Santa's" every Christmas season for the Salvation Army, taking donations in low-income neighborhoods. Now, which of the above 3 groups can he be placed in? 85% because he's Christian, eats shrimp, prays, doesn't know his origin & and is bipolar (mental disease) ? 10% because he sells bootleg movies (that he didn't produce) at a profit, and takes nickels, dimes, & dollars from poor people? 5% because he's a Mason (Muslim Son) who teaches Freedom, Justice, and Equality to his students? Hmm...Who's to say?

I'll even use myself as an example...I still have a problem with my temper (acting uncivilized at times), I'm hard-headed (hard to lead in the "right" direction), and hell yeah, I still eat meat, KNOWING that the animals come from this poisoned planet?...Do these 2 things qualify me to be considered an 85%er? Oh, not only that, I'm working on being rich, then wealthy, and when I talk to people who believe in the so-called mystery god, I'll quote from scripture, use the word "believe", I use terms like "the God in you", or "spiritual"...does that make me a 10%er, because I'm not "quoting" Allah's 8 Point Lessons to them, or because I don't disagree with their right/choice to believe in God as a Spirit, not bothering to "correct" them? Or am I 5%, because I'm an overall Civilized Person, who knows Who I Am, who & what "God" is, and knows bullshit when he smells it, refusing to inhale? Hmm...Who's to say?

In my Universe, I no longer try only to put persons in a "box" (Square), I do the Knowledge to their Cipher also! How many times have people tried to put me into some box where I just don't fit, only be shown & proven wrong? Both the Square and the Cipher/Circle have 360 degrees, but why is the Compass above the Square? Also, why are they in that same sequence in the Supreme Alphabet?...Let's take a quick look into that...When you deal with the Cipher/Circle/Compass alone, you are dealing in Equality (1+5=6; Knowledge Power/Refinement=Equality), Knowing a person's Strengths(Mental & Physical Powers) & Weaknesses (areas that can be Refined). When you try to "box" a person into this or that, essentially you end up "Squaring off" with a person, you deal only with the Wisdom that's added onto a Cipher (2+0=2), which is still born back as their Own Self-Styled Wisdom (ending up right back where you started). Can you see the potential for a conversation that becomes a confrontation/"box"ing match, that gets nowhere? However, when you put BOTH the Compass and the Square together when examining a person's character as a whole, (Cipher=15, Square=20...15+20=35 Understanding the Strengths & Weaknesses), you can truly BUILD with them whilst Destroying/negating negativity in the process!!! (3+5=8; Build/Destroy) Simple huh?

Understanding the Law of Cause & Effect, I've been purposely striving to be a more fair person daily. In this Life, you get what you give, and you sometimes have to give people the "benefit of the doubt" when you associate with them, to get it back in return. I know a white man who is a LOT more patient, merciful and compassionate then I have EVER been in my Life! I know some Gods coming in the Name of Allah who are haters & don't even know it! I Know some Earths who will gossip about "85%" women, just to boost their own egos & feel superior to them! I have also seen some Babies that just simply ain't cute!! (gotta love 'em though J)...What I'm saying, is if I were to go into associating with these people with some pre-conceived notion of who & what they "should" be (the white man is the devil, the Gods love me because I'm their Brother, Earths are the most secure Women alive, etc), I would have just be plain wrong! Taking Nothing & No-One on face value though, I choose instead to Understand the Equality in their Cipher using both the Compass AND the Square, so that I can efficiently Build with them from whichever of their 360°s will bring out the Best Part in both of Us! Saves time, energy, and Builds relationships. Right now, I can only think of a few people who I KNOW for a FACT truly don't like or respect me, & that's only because they don't like or respect themselves (not my fault)...From what I know, me doing my part in Understanding how Equality works in my Cipher, has kept me on Square with everyone else. At the very least, they KNOW not to fuck a-round & cross the line in my presence, they can do whatever they want when I'm not a-round J All things being held constant, this is how I constantly & consistently expand my sphere of influence, and maintain my place as Allah Universal. Maybe others can benefit from this reading, I doubt that many can't...

Peace...

One

One

In the beginning there was One

The One became Two so that He could grow & know Himself

The Two became Three so that They could truly see reality

The Three became Four so that He could more explore Himself Freely over time

The Four became Five so that He would feel His Power and Refine Divinely

The Five became Six so that He would achieve Equality & balance the scales of True Justice

The Six became Seven to show & prove Earthly Heaven

The Seven became Eight Eternally setting everything straight

The Eight became Nine, Born to shine Divine Light

The Nine recognized the One, and the Cipher was added on

The One acknowledged the One, and Word formed the Bond

The One knew again why He had to become Two, Understood and stood tall

The One in Three dimensions and beyond could now see how He is Master of them all

He is I Truly, Almighty God Allah

The One

Back to blogspot...The Value of Life

Peace!!!

Well, I'm back to Blogsopt..I started a blog on wordpress (that I forgot about until today), and since Google makes it SO easy to access this blog, I'm going to be starting this one up again...so...

I'm going to make this topic short & sweet...

It's been 2 years to the day since my lil'brother returned to the Essence of Life, and 4 months to the day since one of my true blue friends returned to the Essesnce. They both went out 2 different ways (one was murdered, the other was heart failure), but the similarities of the 2 situations just blow me the fck away. Both of them were 22 years old when they died, on the 16th of the months in question, both were buried on the 22nd of said months, both had their run-ins & dealings with the lawshortly before returning, and they were both Black seeds (brothers of dark complexion, for those that don't know what black seeds are; for those that know, you can see that Wisdom Build Degree @ work).

Death isn't really something that's easy to deal with generally speaking, it's sadly something that I've gotten used to though. When there are 2 situations that are so damn similar though, it kind of put things into perspective for me. The Holy Qur'an says that every soul shall taste death, & I've had my fill indeed. I had 3 or 4 near-death experiences in my time here on Earth, once at 12 or 13 (almost drowned @ a water park, I still find myself choking on liquids almost every day), another when I was about 19 or so (could you believe my muslim girlfriend tried to fckn food poison me?), and 2 more at, guess when? The age of 22 (long story) I'm 30 Now, & the making the best of life by putting the pieces back together...

The Righteous name that I have chosen for Self is Allah Universal, the 1st and 21st degrees from the Supreme Alphabet. The 22nd degree of Supreme Alphabet being Victory, one is Victorious each & every time the Truth is Born from them (Be the Truth!). I see as part of that my personal victory over death, meaning simply that life should be lived to the fullest every day, cause death is running fuckn rampant on the Planet Earth! Ain't such a bad guy, but not so easy to bargain with. Also, for me the 2 brothers mentioned earlier are not dead to me, for they live through me, in my Mind (the Essesnce). Their energy I can see manifested in my everyday life, I've even picked up the speaking cadence of the latter brother. In that I can see that death is NOT Truth, it's relative & has meaning only when compared to Life, that goes for mental and spiritual death as well, not just the death of the physical body. & trust when I say that I'm not on some spooky possesed shit, it's just real like that for me. Not even death can cause me to graft from the stong bond that I had with those brothers of mine.

Life is where it's at, and through all of my trials & tribulations, the fact that I have Life physically, mentally & spiritually is fckn priceless to me. When things are at thier worst, I can easily say "@ least I'm Alive & Well!!!"

The moral of the story, Value your fuckn life, & be victorious over death if it comes your way, because you don't get another one to try again...I'll be back with more organized thoughts...I might just copy & paste from the old wordpress blog (once I find it), there'll be fresh material too though, when time is made for it...

Peace...
Allah Universal
