All praise to our Ancestors, those who are known and those who are unknown. Praise to our Elders, those who will read this, and those who will not. And praise to all the African Queens and Kings, yet to be born.
David and Goliath, Daniel and the Lion’s Den. ALL fictional characters. There was NO ONE in history named David who had a damn battle with some damn giant named Goliath. Grow the fuck up and stop believing in fairy tales! ALSO, there NEVER was a person in history named Daniel that was locked in a damn cage with a bunch of lions that never harmed him. If so, then YOU who are Christian should be able to do the SAME thing. So, go to your nearest zoo, jump your crazy ass in the cage full of lions and see if your Space Ghost God will protect you like he protected Daniel. Certainly, if God did it for Daniel, he will do it for you. And make sure you have it on video, so I can eat some popcorn while the lions eat your monkey ass up!
Now that is out of the way, let us apply some metaphysics to these stories and have more of an adult understanding. YOU are both David and Goliath. But they are YOU at different levels of understanding. David represents the REAL you. The human in all of our frailties. The human Self that must conquer our frailties. That part of us that is not as strong as we think we are. David represents the weak part of the Self, that must conquer the Goliath that lives inside of ALL of us. Now who and what is Goliath? This giant that resides inside ALL of us represents Ego, Arrogance, Gluttony, Selfishness and Greed. And he is a fucking giant compared to the real David of Self.
Now David hurled rocks at Goliath to slay him. It only took one shot to the HEAD…why the Head? There is a verse in the Quran that says, “I hurl TRUTH at falsehood, till it knocks out its brains”. So, falsehood has intelligence, until it comes up against the stone of truth! And in the bible Jesus says, “On this rock I build my church”. Jesus was speaking of Peter as the rock that he was going to build his church on.
So, in the Quran to hurl truth at falsehood is the SPIRIT, and in the bible, Jesus needs a BODY like Peter’s to build his church on. One is not more important than the other. BOTH body and spirit work in tandem for the benefit of the other. To many times in this Western world with the invent of social media, to many of us want to concentrate on the Body and push this is as the real person. This is Goliath, the false sense of the Self, and someone needs to throw a rock at your ass! At the opposite perspective, we have people who present themselves as some damn mental and spiritual savior for the world and have the actual bat-phone to God! Both are representatives of the Goliath mentality and need to be slayed.
Now to this Daniel and the Lion’s den. Again, this is a metaphysical story and can’t be taken literal. YOU are the real Daniel, and the Lion represents your internal fears. We ALL have our own unique fears that plague us. Everyone is different, and everyone have fears that are specific to the Self. These fears represent the Lion, and the fears are internal, so we are locked in an internal cage with the Lion. It is natural to have fear if you find yourself locked in a cage with a lion. But again, Daniel and the Lion BOTH represent the Self! We as Daniel must turn and face our Lions, where we can be in the cage and no longer have fear to be in the cage with them. If we don’t face our own unique and individual fears, then they will devour us eventually.
Both bible and Quran are good books if read in a proper and adult understanding. But if read in a literal and childish understanding, they are slave makers!
May we as Individuals and as a People, overcome our 3 greatest impediments…Fear, Ignorance and Poverty.
And may we as Individuals and as a People, embrace our 3 greatest strengths…our African Culture, Nationalism and an unwavering commitment to Self- Preservation!
