Did the Secret Work For You?

6 04 2010

Have you seen the Secret?

(Sample photo of an “Npu standing in the Land of Kam” – work of art in progress).

Yeah, I know you have. I saw it too. It took the world by storm and everyone was on board about a year ago because of Oprah. The lady who wrote the book really did a good job with the publicity and I give her credit. I hold no ill feelings towards her or her success, but the Secret didn’t work for me. Even though a lot of what the authors talk about makes sense because they are based upon the “Law of Attraction” there are other laws that exist that cancel out the Law of Attraction if things aren’t working together.

I promised myself that I was not going to preach, but you know in this book they don’t explain or talk about the Spirit, which the author calls the Genie or whatever. Because they don’t talk about the Spirit (Genie) it sends out a mixed message to people, making them think that all they have to do is think positive. Let me give you an example.

One section in particular talks about how if you say “you don’t want” the Universe only hears “you want” such as if you say you don’t want a bad haircut then you will end up getting a bad haircut. Ok? But I am a real pragmatic individual. So, why did the Universe lay me off of my job when I woke up every morning saying because I was tired, “Man, I sure don’t want to go work today”?

According to the Secret, the Universe should have said, “HAHAHAHA. Rau Khu is talking silly…he’s just tired. He wants to go to work and have a job“, but it didn’t. My behind was laid off. Before the Secret came out, I was testing this whole attraction thing (before I knew that is what it is called) and I said, “I want $3000 by x, y, z date”. Guess what I got it. It was part of my severance pay!!!

So, what does this all mean? Well, there’s a saying…”Be careful what you ask for”. Why do you have to be careful? Because the Spirit or Power of God does not make a distinction between what is right or wrong, right and left, front or back, etc. It’s sole objective is as they say in the Secret to grant our wish, because God gave us freedom of choice to do whatsoever we want to do.

If we don’t put any guidelines and aren’t specific on how we want to achieve that goal.  We meet the Divine Opener of the Way (also called the Divine Trickster in some traditions) called Npu (Anubis in Greek, Elegba in Yoruba, Lucero in the Palo Mayombe tradition, Moses in Christianity and Nino de Atocha in Catholicism).

Who is Npu you ask? Without going into a long dissertation, Npu is the personal guardian angel/spirit that everyone has (regardless if they believe in him or not) given to us by God to guide us throughout life.  He is envisioned as being a young man or teenager wearing a dog/jackal mask. The dog/jackal mask is a reminder to adherents to be specific with their request and careful what they ask for because if the subject matter is not black and white or if there’s any grey areas.  You are bound to get a surprise because Npu can be very fickle and mischievous, which is the reason many assume that he is evil.  But, Npu is not evil at all.  He closes the doors (sort of speak) only to test our integrity and help us to learn about our own divinity. For instance, if I hadn’t been laid off after saying numerous times that I did want to go to work. I would never have learned that our thoughts influence our actions and just like negative thoughts yield negative results. Constructive thoughts can inspire constructive action.

So, I think the best way to get things moving is to:

1. State what you want, meaning focus only on the desired outcome and nothing else. If trying to recover from an illness don’t think about how you became ill or any of that other nonsense. Focus on enjoying your life and being healed. Try watching comedies to help you to keep your spirits up.

2. Allow the Spirit to intercede by sending you an inspiring message through Npu.

3. Follow the inspiration with action to get the desired result. Remember, you have to follow up with some kind of action to get what you want. If you don’t you are just a dreamer.

One of my personal favorites is starting from the Finish Line.   For instance, if you wanted to run a race don’t train to win the race, but instead train as if you have already won.

Happy Birthday: Another Initiation Passed

16 03 2010

This week I am another day older thanks to Kamitic/Kemetic spirituality. Sometimes I wondered how I was going to make it, but it was truly this Kamitic/Kemetic Way of Life that saved me.  I remember when I was 15 looking at the depressing news and hearing the most discouraging words of power from the media during the crack cocaine 1980s, “Young black males won’t make it to 18″, then it went to “21”, “25”. Well, I am 30 something! I made it and now I am trying to help others to get out of  that destructive cycle.

I never understood what this cycle was until I went through my experience and my ancestors taught me about the maa aankh, a Kamitic/Kemetic cosmogram inspired by the Kongo Cross.  You see according to the maa aankh.  The destructive cycle that a lot of young people (especially young men) fall into is called Ra, which is associated with the point Tu-Kula in Ki-Kongo. Both of these points are red and they correspond to the midday sun.  Red is the color of caution, danger, vitality and emergency and on the maa aankh it is associated with the  envious brother of Osar (Asar, Ausar, Osiris) named Set. Set for those who don’t know is the author of confusion, war, chaos, destruction, you name it, if it is evil he has his hands on it. His original name is Set and later he became known as Set-an and finally Satan.  His color by the way is also red.

Ra leads to Ra Atum, which is the point of completion, the end, death and transformation.  Ra Atum is associated with the Luvemba point which is the color white. White is the color of our elders’ gray hair, it is the color of the ancestors, and the cool color of the Lord Osar.

In the natural sense it is okay if you have mastered what is necessary in a particular cycle for you to change, be transformed or die, because it only means that you will be reborn from your experience (hence, the return of old souls being reborn as babies).  But, when you die at an early age and haven’t learned anything or what you were supposed to learn.  We die prematurely both spiritually and physically. Looking back at how I made it and survived the 1980s, I see that I had to learn how to temper the fire (anger, attitude, rashness, rebelliousness, etc.) and have a cool head. I had to learn how to balance the heat with coolness.   I had to listen to my elders who were much wiser and had more experience than I, so that I could avoid dying prematurely. It was by doing that, I was able to escape those turbulent times, pass the initiation (test) created by life and now metaphorically speaking wear the double pschent crown, like Hru (Hrw, Heru, Horus).
