The seed is NOT the tree. What do I mean? It is the tree that produces the fruit not the seed. The seed is your potential, but the tree is your reality of who you really are. You have all the potential in the world, but eventually who you really are will produce itself eventually. I remember Malcolm saying when he was in school his White teacher asked him what he wanted to be [potential] when Malcolm replied that he wanted to be a lawyer [potential] his teacher said to him…”Oh Malcolm, you could never be a lawyer, MY people would never support you and your OWN people would never patron you. You should instead be a plumber, something more reasonable“. From that moment on he decided to leave school and become a criminal, so right away the seed or potential of who he could become was not put in fertile soil to grow into a tree, until he met Elijah Muhammad where he had an abundance of water and good soil.
I can have a seed in my hand, but I don’t know what type of tree the seed will produce because I lack that type of knowledge. Now a farmer can look at the same seed and tell you what kind of tree will come from the seed. Now when I say farmer I am not talking about a human being, the real farmer I speak of is NATURE! It is nature that can identify what the seed is and what it will produce. There are seeds that actually look good on the outside, but once they are put in the soil, there was something about the seed that kept it from producing.
Now where exactly am I going with all this? WHO ARE YOU? Right now in your development are you the seed or the tree? Many of us have a whole bunch of fucking potential, but we are not producing shit! You ever hear someone TALK about what they are going to do? How much money they are going to make. What type of woman they are going to have. What type of house they are going to have. These are a bunch of seeds talking! Where are the trees where I can see the fruit they have produced?
When I was in the Nation of Islam, you had to pass some questions that was asked to you 100% correctly, and your conduct and participation in the Nation of Islam had to be exemplary in order for you to get your “X”. This is how Malcolm got his, and how I got mine. But when you get your X, that is like you being a seed. The X in mathematics means the unknown…you are now Richard X, but we don’t really know who you are until we see you produce some fruit!
By them giving me my “X” they were saying “You have potential, but you are still in the seed state until we can see and watch you over a period of time to see what comes out from all that so-called potential”. When I finally left the Nation of Islam, I got into a heated argument with someone that was still in the Nation, it was over a social media comment and we battled over the sagacity of Religion and Islam in particular. He finally left the argument with a comment that has stayed with me to this very day. He said to me…”Brother if you have the real deal and what you believe has substance…then show and prove”! So basically what he was saying, all I hear from you is a bunch a fucking seed talk! You talking all this shit about the potential of African Spirituality, but I don’t see any fucking fruit! You have yet to develop into a tree where I can see some fruit of what you say is real about African Spirituality.
From that moment to now, I have been attempting to move from seed potential to Tree Reality. I can write all I want on the sagacity and reality of African Spirituality, but unless I can show through my OWN development and reality that this shit is real…I need to shut the fuck up! I will be successful, I will be productive in my endeavor to showcase the reality of African Spirituality, not in an egoic way to show “Look what I have done”, but to show to African people in particular and the rest of humanity in general that African Spirituality is viable and has something to offer African people where religion cannot!
Now with that said, I expect through my endeavors to show this to the world, I expect assistance from the Ancestors to help me with this endeavor. I cannot do this alone or with my OWN hands, I will need some super natural assistance to be successful! Just like your Jesus of the bible who expected God to assist him with his ascension, I expect the Ancestors to help me with my endeavor to show humanity the reality of their power! Now if the Ancestors are unwilling or unable to assist me, then I may as well take my ass back to church and back to sleep! But I believe them to be with me and dwell in me, and because of this my dedication to them will never wane!
