I was reading this book on philosophy and ran across the word EXISTENTIALISM. I didn’t know what it meant and looked up the meaning… “a philosophical theory that emphasizes the EXISTENCE of the INDIVIDUAL as a person FREE and RESPONSIBLE agent determining their OWN DEVELOPMENT through acts of the WILL”. this definition describes my religion “or way of life” perfectly! I don’t recognize any religion or any god but do believe our ancestors continue to live thru us. we may give them the mythological name HERU, ASET, OR PTAH but those that have passed on or died their DNA still continues thru us. so for me the ancestors guide me, support me, give me instructions, but ultimately my development is mine and mine alone. I can follow their instructions or sit on my ass and do nothing, but I don’t believe in some god, creator, deity that’s outside of me in space or atmosphere that DICTATES MY LIFE! so the word existentialism fits me perfectly, but this is not UN-AFRIKAN! it is just your unique way of CHOOSING to understand our ancient belief system. the word ontology basically means the same thing as existentialism.. study of the nature of COMING INTO BEING OR EXISTENCE. the word existence is the ROOT WORD of the word existentialism. the book MAAT by maulana karenga is filled with the word ONTOLOGY. the word PERT EM HERU which means COMING FORTH BY DAY AND NIGHT which is the ancient book of our people in kemet which the BIBLE AND QURAN is plagiarized from means ontology and existentialism. to come forth is ontology and to come into an existence from ignorance to knowledge is to COME FORTH BY DAY OR EXISTENTIALISM! if u are in the ACT of BECOMING that means u DIDN’T exist before. you are BECOMING… becoming what? the word Hebrew is a language. it is a language not a goddamn religion, someone turned it erroneously into a religion. but lets talk about this made of history, supposedly Abraham CROSSED OVER from UR of Chaldea into kemet or Egypt and those that saw him CROSS OVER called him HEBREW ” he that crossed over”. but when u use ontology in a spiritual context the word HEBREW has a similar meaning of our ancient text PER EM HERU. because to truly CROSS OVER means one who was in gross darkness and has crossed over into knowledge and wisdom, COMING FORTH BY DAY! u are one who is BECOMING…..ONTOLOGY AND EXISTENTIALISM! part two soon. RA FOR LIFE!
the last of the three answers to plagues that burden our people. 1.EMBRACE OUR AFRIKAN CULTURE 2.NATIONALISM AND 3. SELF PRESERVATION. we should have an unwavering commitment to self preservation. self preservation does not seem to be important to black people, especially our youth. I have heard black teens say they don’t expect to see the age of 30 due to the circumstance they were born in so because of this they will continue to WILD OUT. no other youth on the planet speaks of themselves in such a doomsday language. many of our women think more of their bodies and how they look and wear more than what’s in their head and are willing to sell their virtue thinking they have but a short time. all this is due to a people who have no roots of knowledge of themselves and look forward to LIFE AFTER DEATH instead of LIFE NOW! my brother once asked me “so what’s going to happen when we die?” I said “instead of u trying to figure out what happens when u DIE, try to figure out how to LIVE! when u die u will be there wherever the fuck that is, u will be there for a LONG TIME but u have a short time on the earth so find out how to live WELL. your energy is diverted to death instead of life. yes I know there is much hell on the planet but take another look, there is so much beauty in life and on earth but u must like knowledge u must search for it and I promise… u will find it. black men preserve the life of your brother, preserve the life of our women and our children. the black woman created u to protect her and her offspring, even at the expense of your life. the ancestor Elijah Muhammad said when u teach a man u teach an individual, but when u teach a woman u teach a NATION!. black blood is precious! the goddamn white man spills enough of it, what the fuck are we doing helping the beast by spilling afrikan blood. SELF PRESERVATION is the FIRST LAW OF NATURE, meaning to preserve self should be so NATURAL that it should come to u to protect, sustain, and maintain by any means necessary! when u have an enemy that wishes to decline, stop, minimize your life in any way make that enemy forfeit THEIR life for having the audacity to approach u in such a manner. when I say an enemy I don’t mean another black man, we are enemies out of ignorance but there is an enemy who is one by nature and history. embrace self preservation, love one another. help teach the ignorant of our people so they are not tools of exploitation of the real enemy. love self, for u cannot love your people if u do not love SELF. search this planet and find what resonates with u so u can find something that moves the soul so staying on this planet becomes a priority with u, and talk of what happens when u die becomes a moot and mute point. get out of the fucking box called a neighborhood and start to travel this earth and see what u have never seen before. IGNORANCE, FEAR, AND POVERTY are our three worst enemies and AFRIKAN CULTURE, NATIONALISM, AND SELF PRESERVATION are our best defense. HOTEP
