Born Again For Real – The Purpose of Kemeticism

4 07 2013

Hetepu (Peace) Family. The other day I was talking to my former supervisor who is very religious and she was just telling me all about the Holy Spirit. I thought it was interesting for one because even though she knows I don’t believe everything she believes. She still identified me according to the way I live my life as being “Born Again,” which is why I titled this post this way.  But, all while she was talking I was just wondering if she even knew where this came from.  Then I got to thinking about how churches are so different now.

Musical Greats inspired by the Church

Musical Greats inspired by the Church

Let me explain real quick. Remember the music of the Motown era, Staxx and so on? Remember when those singers like Sam Cooke, Marvin Gaye, The Supremes, Aretha Franklin, the Staple Singers, Isaac Hayes (sorry to all music purist, I know I am jumping around…I WAS NOT born during that era, please forgive me :) )  and all of them talked about their beginning or how they developed their musical talents? Do you remember what they all would say? That’s right the Church. They all gave the same answer, that they honed their singing, musical, and oratory skills in the Church. Now, if we skip to contemporary times people will not say the same thing. The response is somewhat so-so but you will hear most comment on how they came from the “secular” world and brought their talent to the Church.  Interesting isn’t it?

I mean when did the Church start getting its inspiration from the Streets? It was when they loss their Anointing or the Spirit of God, and once they loss this connection, the ability to be Spirit-led wasn’t far behind.

You see, the whole Spirit-led phenomenon that most Churches talk about today was supposed to be due to following the Holy Ghost or Holy Spirit.  The evidence that one is filled with the Holy Ghost is by speaking-in-tongues based upon the Day of Pentecost.  If you ask most churchgoers where this movement began, they will tell you that it all started at the Azusa Street Revival, which was started by William J. Seymour.

What they don’t tell you is that Seymour was a student of Charles Parham and when he came upon the revival he denied it and denounced the movement as being taken over by hypnotists, spiritualists and fortunetellers. (see A Catechism of Christian Doctrine…No. 3, Supplemented by Rev. Thomas L. Kinkead. Bezinger Brother, 1921 pg. 261-262). In fact, Parham’s racial views about African Americans and Mexican Americans involvement in the Pentecostal Movement is what led to the development of separate Pentecostal organizations in the United States.

Obviously, the reason most Black scholars and theologians, as well as non-Black theologians refuse to say anything about this is because they don’t want anyone to know about their African shamanistic roots and spiritualistic origins. But, the failure to acknowledge and address the African element is the reason so many people in the church are experiencing such a disconnect from the Spirit of God. It is all because the practice of speaking-in-tongues as evidence that one has the gift of the Holy Ghost is a form of spirit possession, particularly African trance possession.

Afro-Brazilian Trance Possession

Afro-Brazilian Trance Possession

This practiced survived in the Untied States because Spiritualism encouraged it by proving that there is life after death and how one could speak to spirits, thus verifying Native American and African beliefs in the otherworld.  If it had not been for Spiritualism – particularly Kardec Spiritualism – most of the indigenous practices of Native Americans and Africans throughout the Americas (Caribbean and Latin America) would have become extinct.

So, the practice of speaking in tongues or possession survived, along with other African practices such as prophesizing and shouting, which are all Spirit-led because of Spiritualism. What does this have to do with losing connection to the Spirit of God, you ask? It means that the original beliefs and practices go beyond the Azusa Street Revival. The actual theology comes from Africa.

Being led by the Spirit, as any African Traditional and African Diaspora practitioner will tell you is great, but you have to verify what the Spirit is saying is true, and this is why the loss has occurred. There is no verification process, which means any spirit can come in and tell a person to do something. The older people in the church had ways of discerning if what the spirit was telling them was true or not (called divination), but for reasons “unknown”. Their ways were regarded as being superstitious and backwards practices from Africa, which is the reason it was not taught.

Coliseums & Mega Churches

Coliseums & Mega Churches

As is the case all throughout the world, when two cultures encounters each other, the dominant culture takes from the other elements, which it sees as being beneficial and profitable to its own, while discarding the rest.  So, now when you turn on the radio or watch TV you see all sorts of preachers talking about the Holy Ghost and being led by the Holy Spirit. You will hear all sorts of singers talking about how great the Holy Spirit is and how it is the most beautiful thing in the world. All while these peoples’ lives are in shambles, they have poor nutrition, they have low self-esteem, poor relationships, and impoverished communities but yet the Holy Spirit is wonderful.

Clearly, something is missing and that something is the African element, which the “powers that be” deemed as being superstitious and backwards.  It is because most churches do not have this element, which is the basis of the Azusa Street Revival. The reason so many people in the church have simply sold out. With no anointing or no-Spirit you got to find ways to entertain the masses. While it seems a little barbaric to create great coliseums and see gladiators physically kill each other.  If you look at most mega churches, they do resemble coliseums and they get on stage and allow their egos to have a slugfest instead. I am not here to judge anyone but really. If all of these people really had the Spirit of God within them some of the issues that exist in our society would cease, so why haven’t they? Clearly, something is wrong.

Please understand my post is not to ridicule the church. I have become a very objective individual, so I can and will listen to anyone because Absolute Truth is Absolute Truth regardless of whose mouth it comes out of.  I enjoy listening to some preachers when it is the Spirit sermonizing and not the speaker’s ego.  The purpose of this post is get you to understand that the original idea of what it means to be saved and filled with the Holy Ghost.  Didn’t come from Azusa Street but from Africans and early African Americans who wanted to be “saved” and delivered from slavery.  American Churches watered down the original purpose and in a minute we will see why.

Colonoware

You see, the Africans and early African Americans relying upon remnants from Africa combined with Christianity created the Spirit-led tradition that people are so happy to talk about today.  They also created a coded language that allowed them discern if what the Spirit was telling them was true or not, unlike people nowadays who just want to experience the Spirit or feel good and do nothing with it. Therefore, if you want to be truly reborn, you need to understand that it is not about listening to the Spirit. You have to learn to trust the Spirit and follow the Spirit’s guidance.  Once you do this, you will realize after you have verified that what the Spirit is telling is true. That the reason you speak-in-tongues is because all of those tongues are the ancestors who reside in the unseen spirit world.

Kongo Cosmogram

Basic Kongo Cosmogram

But not every dead person is an ancestor. Some of the dead were bad people in life and they continue to be bad people in the afterlife. This is why the elders had to find a way to discern what the Spirit was saying is true.  Most of our elders did this through bibliomancy, the art of divining with a book. Although any book can be used, the book most of our elders used was the Christian bible. Are you beginning to see why it was regarded as superstitious?

Black Jesus (as depicted in the film Red Tails)

Black Jesus (as depicted in the film Red Tails)

Unfortunately, most of the original theology that the elders relied upon was lost because Jesus from the African and early African American perspective was seen as being a patriarchal ancestor.  Fortunately, this early African American concept was not new. It was practiced in Kamit/Kemet (Ancient Egypt) some 3,000 years ago and the patriarchal ancestor was Osar (Asar, Ausar or Osiris in Greek).

Maa Aankh Cosmogram

This is the whole reason behind the heroic Hru (Hrw, Heru or Horus in Greek) fighting his evil uncle in order to reclaim his ancestor’s crown, the white crown of Kamit called the Hedjet or Crown of Osar.

Hru Osar and Set

So, how do you know when you have been reborn.  You will know when you are truly reborn because your Osar (the patriarch of your lineage) gives you self-pride. When you have pride in yourself, you will live a better life because your Osar will help you not to do it. Your Osar will tell you that certain things are harmful to you.  You can “try the Spirit” and it will help you in everyway. It will not cause you to humiliate yourself by altering your looks just to be accepted by the public. Most importantly, the Spirit will get you to stand up and fight in whatever way possible against injustice.  It will truly liberate you of your fears because as Jesus said, the Spirit is a Comforter. So the question that remains is why would the “powers that be” take the African element out, besides trying to disassociate itself with spiritualism? Well, remember this historical event?

Martin L. King Jr. Arrested

Ok, maybe not. How about these historical events?

MLK a Global Force

MLK a Global Force

Do you get the picture? King was transformed by the Holy Spirit, which transcended all sorts of cultural and racial boundaries. This is why he was able to mobilize people to march on Washington, D.C.  Mind you, when I say they marched, they didn’t take buses and drive to D.C. then walked the rest of the way, like these contemporary marches. The people marched from all over the country to D.C. Regardless of what you believe about King, the fact is that he led the most powerful march in the history of the country, which is why his influence is still felt.  I believe clearly you can see it wasn’t ego driving these people who marched during the Civil Rights era…it was the Spirit.  This is the reason the religion has been watered down, because they don’t want any of us, YOU included, to be the next Martin L. King Jr.

This is why to be reborn the right way means to learn how to connect first to your Osar and this is the true purpose of Kamta.

Never Forget

Never Forget

So, with all of these spiritual people in our society, it is time to change the world.

Hope this helps.

The Origin of Black Jesus

30 05 2012

Formerly (How to Separate the Deified Jesus from the Jesus Within? (The Birth of Black Jesus)

There are a few people wondering why I advocate using the Lord’s Prayer even though I consider myself to be a follower of the Kamitic philosophy.  It is because as a shaman, I am concerned with what works because most of our ancestors were Christians and we come from a Christian background. But, due to misinterpretation, misrepresentation and misunderstanding about the ideas our ancestors had about Jesus Christ.  There is a lot of confusion circulating around.  This has led a number of us to turn our back on spirituality or worse become an atheist, which is totally out of sync with our nature and a true slap in our ancestors’ face.  So, let’s begin.

This discussion started when I was talking with my wife and at the time we were watching the film Red Tails, and noted that one of the pilots had a picture of Black Jesus.  I am not sure if people got it but the director was trying to show how there were two depictions of Jesus that existed.  To understand this, it has to be remembered that when the Africans were brought to North America, unlike the Africans in the Caribbean and South America. They were unable to practice their religious beliefs, which most of us already are aware of. Consequently, they had to adapt and modify their beliefs and practices in order to survive in the new hostile environment they found themselves in. Now, contrary to popular belief, the Africans brought to the North America were not forcefully converted to Christianity as some authors believe. There’s a substantial amount of historic evidence that reveals that many of the people from the Kongo-Angolan region had converted to Christianity prior to the advent of the slave trade.  This means that even though most of the Africans from this region weren’t Christian, many of them had knowledge of this European faith.

During slavery, for almost hundred or more years, Protestant Euro-Americans were very leery about converting the Africans to Christianity for fear that baptism would give them “crazy ideas” that they were free from bondage.    So they gave the early African Americans bits and pieces to make the people subservient, which allowed the early African Americans to fill in the voids with their own beliefs and practices. According to my research, most of these beliefs were influenced by the Kongo cosmogram.  This went on for years until evangelical Baptist and Methodist preachers began traveling through the south during the Great Awakening. It was during this time a large number of early African Americans converted to the Christian faith and one of the big drawing points was water baptism. According to classic Kongo belief, it was a barrier of water that separated the land of the living from the land of the ancestors or spiritual realm. When one crossed over to the spiritual realm and returned back to the land of the living with a change of consciousness, it was believed they were reborn, a similar belief existed in Kamit (see the maa aankh). Prior to the early African American involvement in Christianity, you will not find this belief nor practice, because it is straight from Africa particularly the Kongo-Angolan region.   In fact, there is no proof of people ever speaking in tongues, the sign of the Holy Ghost, until African Americans joined the church and people were struck by the Spirit at the Azuza Street Revival.

So, what this means is that for more than a hundred years, early African Americans even though were not encouraged practiced their traditional beliefs did manage to blend their beliefs and practices with European religion, which became the foundation of what we call as the Black Church Experience. It was from this spiritual legacy, that the Black Jesus was born.

Now, for those of us searching for spiritual answers and trying to find our way (our maa), we find this hard to accept.  I know I did, because we wonder why our people would willingly convert to the religion of our enemy. Why would they willingly convert to a religion that taught that they were meant to be beast of burden and the wretched of the earth based upon the so-called Hamitic myth?  I know that if you are like me, you probably have ancestors that resisted this and you’re probably torn up inside about the whole Jesus issue.  Well, through a lot of soul searching and conversations with my ancestors I learned that early African Americans didn’t really convert to Christianity. They actually created their own version of the religion, which began in the Kongo, this is where Black Jesus was born and why in the Caribbean Black Jesus is associated with Kongo spirituality.

Now when I say Black Jesus, I am not just talking about a painting of Jesus painted as an African man.  I am speaking about the concept of a Black Jesus. That is an individual who suffered right alongside the slave in the field. An individual that was beat and whipped by the oppressor, and then persecuted because of the color of his skin.  Just think for a moment. Have you heard or read anything about this Jesus? If you’re like me, most likely you haven’t. There is not much written about him, but you can identify with him because he exists in your racial consciousness. This is the Jesus that Negro spirituals and the first gospel songs were all about. I don’t care what you claim to believe, even the staunchest black atheists today can’t resist the power of Mahalia Jackson singing, “How I got over,” because this is the Jesus that she is singing about.  Black Jesus was birthed out of struggle.

The difference between Black Jesus and the Jesus that was taught in Sunday school is that Black Jesus is a powerful archetype that took on the characteristics of the Kongo nganga’s (Kongo priests) and the Yoruba orishas. This is why if you read any books about the religion of the slaves, like the Slave Religion by Robert Robetau.  You will find that early African Americans loved Jesus because he was healer and miracle worker like Moses.  In fact, next to Moses he was considered to be the greatest healer or conjure man of the bible. Note that I said, next to Moses. Another difference was that Black Jesus wasn’t worshipped like Jesus is nowadays, but was talked to like a familiar friend or a common ancestor, because he was about community and was associated with the super conscious.The interesting thing about this is that Jesus was viewed the same way in the Afro-Caribbean and Afro-Latin America, which means this could not be a coincidence.

The super conscious also called the higher consciousness, objective consciousness, divine consciousness, the Spirit also referred to as God.  It is what connects us all together as one. It is the divine spark that dwells within each and every one of us regardless if we believe it exists or not. It is what gives us the divine potential to accomplish anything we put our mind to. Many non-Western cultures created spiritual cultures to cultivate peoples’ higher spiritual abilities. For instance, we all have the ability to see into the future but in order to achieve such a goal requires us learning how to listen to our higher consciousness or simply intuit. Spiritual cultures focused on developing these abilities in individuals so that they could greater contribute to the survival of the entire community; whereas non-spiritual cultures simply focused on the physical survival of the people by dominating and subjecting others to their physical rule.

Early African Americans (as well as others in the African diaspora) have known about the or super conscious for hundreds of years because they are descendants from African shamanic cultures.  In shamanic traditions the way to access the super conscious is through dancing, drumming, fasting, sensory deprivation, exposure to extremes of temperature or the use of psychoactive drugs.  Those familiar with the African American religious experience will note that besides the latter two, all of these practices can be found within the Black Church. These practices along with the latter two (exposure to extreme temperature and psychoactive drugs) are readily used within the Native American spiritual services, which should give you a general idea as to how the relationship between Native Americans and early Africans Americans evolved.

Anyway, the early African Americans danced, chanted, fasted and on occasion drummed (using handclaps, hand and body slaps – i.e. hambone since drums were officially outlawed) to go into trance and meet Black Jesus who gave them certain virtues like lucidity, patience, kindness, truthfulness, humility, and forgiveness towards one’s fellow man, which is called Gifts of the Spirit or the Holy Ghost in some churches. These are all qualities that according to traditional spiritual teachings, one cannot obtain without ascending to the higher consciousness or meeting Black Jesus. Unfortunately, because many African American pastors refuse to research their own spiritual lineage. They fail to understand that this is the reason they feel they have to go to church. It though has nothing to do with the church itself but it is all about connecting to the Divine consciousness. Some of the other fruits of the Spirit are chastity, faithfulness, gentleness, generosity, goodness, love, modesty, self-control, strength, wisdom, counsel and peace. So, you see, the bible simply conveyed what early African Americans already knew about the super consciousness, which the Kamitic people called the ba – the divine spark.

But somewhere along the way, things went awry in regards to the Black Spiritual Experience. Many have traced this great change back to around the Civil Rights and Cultural Movement of the 1970s. It is not known exactly what happened but it seems as if the Black Jesus fulfilled his purpose and people had no more use of him as they got more rights and freedoms. The reason is because people started accepting the Euro-American Protestant idea of Jesus who was more about individualism instead of community. It should be noted that around this same time, there was a sharp decline as conditions in the community across the country got worst.  As people migrated out of the neighborhoods, more and more drugs became available. Isn’t it interesting that most of the social ills that exist in our communities were not present prior to that time? The other interesting thing is that it wasn’t that drugs, prostitution, etc. did not exist at all, but there was something preventing it from running rapid as it exists today. The reason is because there was a change in consciousness.  In a matter of time, the religious experience of African Americans moved from communal based spirituality to individualism.

This is why in the minds of many; Black Jesus is simply an image.  He is not the Black Jesus of old, which is why no matter what color Jesus is. For many of us it is hard to divorce ourselves from the myth versus the cruel reality associated with Christianity. When we hear the name Jesus what comes to mind are all of the atrocities that were done in Jesus’ name, under the banner of a long blonde hair man looking to the heavens. Understand, I have nothing against Europeans and their descendants but it has to be understood the psychological and spiritual damage that was committed due to the idea of some and their so-called “master race.” Although Hitler was the only individual to build a society that worked towards the annihilation of other ethnicities, he wasn’t the only one that believed in such theories. These theories of white superiority had been circulating around Western civilization for centuries. It was these theories that later inspired Colonialism, which is why in the minds of many (especially those who know history) they are associated with Jesus.

So that we are clear about the confuse state people are in regarding Jesus. Just think about the four little girls that were killed in a church bombing in Alabama by Jesus loving Klansmen of the KKK. Clearly, these individuals that committed this crime didn’t know anything about the peaceful teaching of Jesus, but can you imagine still loving a God that would seem to condone such acts of violence? What about all of the lynchings of all the Black, Jewish, Native American and Hispanic men by so-called Christian men and women? Imagine if you were a Native American and you were told that Jesus didn’t love you and you would not go to heaven because your entire way of life is uncivilized, along with the number of treaties supposedly made under God that were broken? Could you still love Jesus? This is why Jesus leaves a bad taste in a lot of people’s mouths because of the actions and behaviors of foolish and ignorant people. Jesus taught about love but many of his stewards all around the world have done otherwise.  And, they are doing the same thing today. This is why a lot of young people are not just turning away from him but turning away from spirituality all together. And, it is not just minorities.  Many Westerners are turning away from Jesus and to atheism because of the same negative history. I can’t tell you how many atheists I have met that are so fond of talking about the various atrocities committed in the name of savior.  And, why is there all of this confusion? It is simply because some zealous men made Jesus and the God one in the same.  It is hard to worship a God that oppresses you, but we can’t exist without God, because being spiritual beings in a physical body. We need God just as much as God needs us. Without God we have no access to the spiritual fruits that were spoken of earlier, but without us. God cannot physically implement His/Her plan in the world of the living.

So, how do we get rid of this evil concept so that we can grow spiritually? How do we erase the hundreds of misinterpreted, misrepresented and just totally incorrect ideas about God and Jesus that have been told to us throughout the ages?

We just simply need to return to the old ways and see that Jesus is an archetype of who we are supposed to be.  Jesus is not the God, which is why he never talked to God by talking to himself. He talked to God like everyone else did by speaking with his super conscious or ba. Notice that when the disciples asked Jesus how they should speak to God, he said talk to the father by saying, “Our Father.” Jesus gave an ancient recipe on how to connect with the ba. It is a similar recipe that the psalmist gave in the Book of Psalms, which is why was the most popular book in early African American and Jewish folk traditions. If you look far enough you will find this is the same way the Kamitic people spoke about the God when they mentioned Osar.

When you really read about Jesus it makes sense why he clearly told his disciples not to worship him, because he knew it would confuse people. Jesus understood that the super conscious was the ba and he identified it with God. This is why saying the Lord’s Prayer or Psalm 23 empowers you, because it is poetic and it invokes the Spirit within our being. It is spiritual alchemy that the ancient Hebrews learned from guess who?  That’s right the Kamitic people, who people are beginning to recognize now were master shamans. So, to reprogram your lower consciousness and rid yourself of the old, dogmatic ideas of Jesus and your divinity, invoke your ba as Jesus did. Jesus referred to his ba as his Father. Early African Americans following suit referred to their ba as God or Lord. This is why the Kamitic people understanding the nature of the ba called God Nebertcher (Ne-ba-tchar) – The Lord of All Things, which is why it is perfectly okay if you are trying to clean your spiritual slate to pray the Lord’s Prayer.

Hope that helps.





What Really is the Kamitic Way?

13 01 2012

Hetepu (Peace) Fam.

I know we have talked about this in a previous post but someone asked me this question that demanded another post, so here we go?

What really is the Kamitic Way?

Does it mean you are supposed to do things (mimic) the way the Kamitic (ancient Egyptians) use to do things? Does it mean you are supposed to build pyramids, temples and sphinxes? Does the Kamitic Way mean that you are supposed to perform all sorts of ceremonies like paying homage to the Nile or Hapi, having elaborate rituals to Bast, Bes and all other outdated rituals? Does it mean that you believe in embalming and mummifying your deceased loved ones? What is so important about following the Kamitic Way?  Why it is important to follow the Kamitic Way? Can you go to church, mosque or temple and still follow the Kamitic Way?

To some these questions may sound silly but for many soul seekers these are real questions that real, serious minded individuals interested in the Kamitic Way want to know. I know because I once upon a time had to entertain these same questions.

This is why I stress that Kamit was a civilization that existed thousands of years ago. The builders of this ancient Egyptian culture were black and brown skinned Africans. The purpose of emphasizing the racial ethnicity is because Eurocentric, Christians and Islamist have tried to claim otherwise in order to promote their own agenda, etc. A clear of example of this can be seen in how contemporary Egypt in considered to be a part of the Middle East.  When in fact it is a country in Africa. Another example of this blatant bigotry can be seen in how Nubians the neighbors to the south of Kamit are always portrayed as being slaves. When in fact, the Nubians were the closest ethnically and culturally related to the Kamitic people. Proof of this can be seen in the ancient Nubian culture, which was almost identical to the Kamitic culture.    In fact, many of the contemporary Nubians still continue to follow traditions that were practiced thousands of years ago by their ancestors who dwell along the Nile in Kamit.

But, the Kamitic people traded with other Africans (the Kamitic people were Africans) as well throughout their long reign. Consequently, their cultural influences has been found throughout the Sub-Sahara Africa (i.e. Akan, Yoruba, Dogon, Bantu, etc.)  Are these Africans and the Kamitic people the same people? I don’t think so, but are they related?  No one knows for sure but they are definitely culturally related.

Born or Born Again?

So, what really is the Kamitic Way? Well, as stated before the Kamitic Way means a lot of different things. To me knowing that culturally my ancestors were related to the Kamitic people means that the Kamitic Way is a cultural practice. That being said, the same way you cannot read a book on Japanese and expect to know Japanese culture. You cannot learn the Kamitic Way just by reading a book. You have to be either born or immersed into it.

Since the Kamitic civilization is long gone. There are no more pyramid builders. There are no Kamitic kings and queens governing millions of people and controlling a vast infantry and advanced navy.  There is no lower class working in the fields to provide sustenance for an entire nation, nor is there an advance craftsman class building temples and other grand edifices.  Not to mention, the builders of the Kamitic society have been exiled or have perished thousands of years ago. It is impossible to be born into the Kamitic society of old.

The Kamitic science however continued to exist because it has been carried to four corners of the planet, as a result of migration, invasion, colonization, domestication, etc., etc. etc. the Kamitic science continued to be shared.  Some of this science preserved in the West and was later called Christianity, but as E. A. Wallis Budge puts it in his book The Gods of the Egyptians.

“The new religion (Christianity) which was preached there by St. Mark and his immediate followers, in all essentials so closely resembled that which was the outcome of the worship of Osiris, Isis and Horus.”

The difference Budge noted between the Kamitic religion of old and the New Testament version was that early Christian writers interpreted the allegorical story of Osar (Asar), Oset (Aset) and Hru (Heru) as a historical event.  And, when you compare this with the symbolism you get a much richer understanding about the Kamitic Way. (Notice if you will the colors of the above statue and how it corresponds with the maa aankh cosmogram below e.g. yellow/gold – rebirth or Amun Ra, black – innocence/birth/child – Khepera, etc.)

In Jesus: A Life, A.N. Wilson writes that:

The Jesus of History and the Christ of Faith are two separate beings, with very different stories…

Wilson, continues by saying,

Jesus, or Joshua, which is the same name, means ‘saviour’. It is the Christian belief that one of the many men in history who born this name was literally the Savior of the World. And, is for this reason that the Western World divides history itself into the time before and after the birth of Jesus.”

In other words, early Christians in their fanatic zeal misinterpreted and mistranslated the Kamitic allegorical texts. It should now become clear why there are so many God-fearing people creating havoc throughout the world. It is because they are worshiping something outside of their being. Fortunately, many Sub-Saharan Africans who were familiar with the power allegory and myth were not easily swayed by this misunderstanding. This is why when the Africans were enslaved those from regions with a vast pantheon like the Yoruba and Dahomeans syncretized their religious beliefs with Christianity.

While those from the Kongo-Angolan region who did not have a vast pantheon but a strong belief in ancestors (hence spiritual resurrection as with El Cristo Negro) identified Christ as being a type of African archetype or role model (see the maa aankh)*.

So, why is the Kamitic Way so important? It is because before all of this confusion was created.  The true intention of the allegorical Kamitic Osar, Oset and Hru legend is that Christ is within you.  And, the Kamitic Way reintroduces the path that was lost.  It was never about worshiping some inanimate object, person, place or thing. It was all about the rebirth of consciousness/soul signified by Amun Ra. Hope this helps.

* Ancient African spirituality focuses on becoming an honorable ancestor called aakhu by living like Osar or Christ-like in life so that you will be reborn (resurrected) after death, either through your descendants or as an angelic being (netcharu).

Prayer to the Black Christ

27 12 2011

Hetepu (Peace) Family

Funny thing. When I was growing up in Michigan I like most African American kids back in those days enjoyed going to my grandparents’ house. I have fond memories of my grandparents, even when they were punishing me. It still makes me laugh. One of the fondest memories that I have was of a Black Jesus that they had in their living room. The interesting thing about this was that their living room ceiling and walls were a dark blue with glitter on it.  It looked like a starry cave.  Then up against the wall, was the Black Christ on velvet. It ties back in to Kamitic-Kongo idea of the spirit realm (See the Maa Aankh), which I mentioned in the post about the Wiz.


I remember that when I asked later on why they had a picture of a Black Christ.  They told me that one of my uncles gave them the painting (out of spite it seems) during the Cultural Movements, and they just kept it. So, what makes this even more interesting is to find years later the above painting with the Spanish prayer for the Black Christ. The Spanish translation is as follows:

Prayer to The Black Christ
Congo Spirit

Oh Divine redeemer from the Congo,
Oh Divine redeemer from the Congo,
Oh Divine redeemer from the Congo,
You who have suffered every ignominy,
I beg of you not to allow the same to occur to me, oh friend.
May my mate remain true. May my belief not be threatened,
May you guide my every step,
May all bad things stay away and all good people come my way.
Grant me luck in all my endeavors.
Peace at work and in the street,
and keep my family on the straight path.

(say two Hail Marys of course this is optional)

BTW Jesus is syncretized with the Kamitic Osar, the first resurrected one. Anyway, I hope this helps. If you are like me, you want to post this up for everyone to see now. :) For more insight, see What about Jesus & Kamitic/Kemetic Spirituality.  Until next time.

Was Jesus Initiated in Kemet?

17 04 2010

HTP (Peace) Fam.

A lot of people would like to know was Jesus a Kamitic initiate. Well, it is not known for sure if he was or wasn’t. I wondered about this when I was growing up, which is part of the reason why I embarked upon this journey so many years ago.  You see, I remember being told when I was younger that the Egyptians were a horrible idol worshipping people that enslaved the “Chosen People” of God. But, I couldn’t for the like of me understand that if the Kamitic people were so evil, why the Daniel, the kid that had the coat of many colors, serve as a vizier? Why did the Joseph flee with Mary and Jesus to Kemet or Kamit, and stay for so long if they were enemies of God?

Then when I got older and continued my research, I wondered why was Moses according to Acts 7:20-22 educated in the ways of the Kamitic people, if the Kamitic people were so evil? It would take years for me to discover that it is because God never cursed or considered the Kamitic people to be evil. This was a gross assumption that someone made and they ran with it. It was another way of trying to promote the twisted theory that the descendants of Ham or Kam were a cursed and wicked people. People swallowed it hook and bait because the bible was interpreted literally and has been used as a world history book.

When it is understood that the bible is all about the genealogical seed of Adam and it is interpreted from that perspective of how anyone can achieve great things. It becomes easy to see why our ancestors in the Americas, kin in Caribbean (Rastafarians) and martyrs like Nat Turner, Harriet Tubman, Marcus Garvey, Elijah Muhammad, Haile Selassie, Malcolm X, and Civil Rights leaders like Martin L. King Jr. and others were able to use the bible as a tool against racism and slavery. They understood the ancient African science of conjuring.

When you understand the power of the Spirit in relation to the Soul, Kamit metaphorically and metaphysically speaking becomes a port of entry. We enter Kamit every time we close our eyes, but only a few of the biblical characters actually were initiated into it. Does it make sense now, why Moses and Jesus went to Kamit?

The Truth About Kamitic/Kemetic Spirituality: What about Jesus Part 4

14 04 2010

Peace Family.

Continuing our discussion we will discuss possible ways of clearing up the confusion with Jesus. Please note this is not the absolute way but it is one of the ways that I have found to be useful and beneficial in my development.

See, Jesus as a real, physical human being that accomplished great things through the power of God. When we approach Jesus from this perspective, our rational mind says, “Ok. That makes sense” and instead of worshiping one’s understanding or cultural interpretation of Jesus and his teachings. The focus returns to worshiping and serving God.
Jesus then becomes an iconic figure, an ancestral archetype for Christians (and others) to aspire to be like. In other words, he becomes like a guardian angel providing one with insight as to how to accomplish similar feats as he has done in his lifetime.  In this role he is equated with Osar and through this role he is able to connect to others because he is the great Christian ancestor, like Osar is considered the great ancestor of the Kamitic people.
Is this approach anti-Christian? You ask. Did not Jesus say that he was the mediator? Did not Jesus say, “I am the door; the person who enters by me will find Eternal bliss”, “I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life”, etc.  So, this approach is not anti-Christian. It is anti-Set.  Set is the author of confusion and the creator of war, which by the way the present state that most of our affairs are in.

If you really want to know if it is the truth all one has to do is “Come to Jesus” and see if it works. All one has to do is try.  If you try this and it works like I have you will be amazed because everything that Jesus talks about will have such a real and profound meaning to you. You will also discover that the real reason the Council of Nicea and all of the other political motivated agendas confused the issue about Christianity is to hide the fact that true Christianiy is actually a syncretism of the Kamitic/Kemetic religion.

The Truth About Kamitic/Kemetic Spirituality: What about Jesus Part 2

11 04 2010

Hey Fam.

Interesting thing. This just came to me…Acts 17:20 “You are bringing some strange ideas to our ears, we want to know what they mean.”

So, I want people to understand that true spirituality from my experience is not anti-religion and for that matter it is not anti-Christian.  Hell.  Since I have embarked upon this journey I have practiced more Christian tenets than I ever wanted to and you know the reason why? Because the true tenets or laws of Christianity aren’t Christian, they are Ancient Egyptian! (Actually they are older than that but, that’s another story).

People get this confused I think because they are so mesmerized by the Kamitic mental science. All of these scholars have come out saying that the Western religions are derived from the Kamitic religion. Then when life puts them in a situation where they have to practice what they preach like “oneness” or forgive (“not forget“) but forgive, they say, “Oh. That’s teaching from the enemy”.  They think that Jesus created this whole thing about forgiveness…umm. If you read the Story of Osar (Asar, Ausar, Osiris), Oset (Aset, Auset, Isis) was the first one that taught about forgiveness, she had to forgive Set for all of the evil that he had done.  Forgiveness by the way is a Kamitic concept and principle based upon Maa, which is Kamitic/Kemetic for balance, law, order, justice and righteousness. Jesus simply broke it down in terms that the people he was talking to could understand, but he didn’t invent this concept and principle.  Did the Kamitic people invent it? Probably not, remember their ancestors were from the south. The point is who cares who invented it. What’s important is that we understand it and implement it to improve our lives.

You see, the problem with principles like these is that no one explained why you are supposed to forgive. Many of us are still screwed up by the Civil Rights Movement and can’t believe that our folks didn’t strike back when the dogs, fire hydrant, spit and all sorts of other things were done to them.  I can still hear it, “Couldn’t have been me.” Right?

Well, I can’t explain it because it is something you have to experience…that is true spirituality. It can’t be theorized. When all you do is think about it, all you are doing is intellectualizing it and not applying it, which doesn’t go far.

This is what I mean by throwing out the baby and the bathwater.  If you accept that the origins of the Western religion comes from Kamit/Kemet, then Kamitic/Kemetic spirituality is all about getting the FULL PICTURE, the whole message straight from the horse’s mouth sort of speak. When you have confusion, setbacks, etc. it is because from the Kamitic perspective, you only got one side of the picture, one piece of the pie, one eye (which is why Hru had to flee in the Story of Osar) because Set gouged his eye out. This is illustrated on the maa aankh as being in the red or the RED LANDS, which is TASETT, the land of confusion, conflict and chaos ruled by Set. You have to focus on getting out of the a chaotic, war state because you’re at the Ra moment.

The full picture comes from traveling to the other side, to the fertile lands below, the mysterious land of our ancestors, the spiritual realm within our being, the beautiful BLACK LANDS OF KAMTA. It requires that you become receptive and you move to the Amun Ra moment.  Oh come and go with me, it is so peaceful :).

You know, I had the hardest time trying to make things work for me spiritually because I threw out everything. It wasn’t until I dragged myself to this realization (like Hru) that things began to change and I was reborn.  It wasn’t until I was reminded that the whole purpose of me embarking upon this journey was to learn how the Kamitic/Kemetic people used the same Holy Ghost that Christians talked about to build their society.
An example of what I mean by practicing Kamitic or shall we say pre-Christian tenets, I once upon a time had to bite a hole in my tongue, suck in my gut and swallow that pride in the face of my enemy, and after I did it. Surprisingly, he donated some money to me and my cause, about a $150 worth.  Now, some can call it magic, others can call it a miracle; I call it the Power of God or Rau at work because I didn’t pick and choose what principles I would follow. What would you call it?
