A New Moon marks the beginning of a new cycle, a fresh start in it’s cycle of waxing and waning. During this time the Moon is empty and receptive and full of potential. This is an optimum time to plant seeds of intentions for what you wish to manifest in your life. Most of us, live our lives so disconnected from the Earth, and devoid of any kind of ritual that creates the space for us to connect. The New Moon provides us with an opportunity to carve out time in our lives for the sacred space needed to take care of ourselves.

The New Moon provides the energy to create our intentions towards what we need within our present life. What seeds do we need to plant in order to grow? What affirmations towards ourselves and our reality? This energy opens the door to let go of what no longer serves us and embrace the new energies that are building. Release, let go and reinvent <3

Black History Month fact #24

Buddhism originates in Africa.

According to Ra Un Nefer Amen I:

Buddhism once synchretized with the Black religion as its powerbase was spread throughout India, and Sri Lanka by the Emperor Ashoka (267-227 BCE). It then spread to China, 65 CE.

In 552 the Hindu sage Boddhidharma founded the Chan (zen) aspect of Buddhism in China; in 747 the Hindu Sage Padma Sambhava introduced tantric Buddhism to Tibet; in 1191 Eisai founded the Rinzai sect in Japan, and in 1300 Dogen founded the Soto Zen sect.

Today those who do not know the history of the yogic tradition, nor understand its inner constitution speak of the “Light of the East” when in reality it is a modification of the Light taken by the Blacks from Nubia into the Tigris, and Indus valley in prehistoric times.

[The Aryan] form of Hinduism-the latest reaction against the Tantric Yogic system of the Blacks of India—is known as Vedanta. It is the form that has been introduced into the West.

African spiritual systems predate all religions and all other spiritual systems. It’s not hard to understand this because humanity started in Africa. Many invasions by outsiders, slavery, and colonialism led to the destruction of the African civilizations.

One thing that is devastating is that Africans are very spiritual people by nature and their conquers would make it a mission to rid them of their native spiritual systems. They would beat, kill, rape, demoralize, and propagate Africans away from their native spiritual forms.

Today many people believe that systems like “voodoo” are “evil” this is a western interpretation that has plagued the world. Many Africans have actually internalized that their native spiritual systems are inferior to that of the oppressors. Like ALL religions and spiritual systems there is “good voodoo” and “Bad Voodoo” meaning there are good ways to use voodoo and bad ways. Anyone realize The KKK identifies themselves as Christians? They sure do have some “righteous” ways , huh?

Back to my post this propaganda about voodoo plagued the world. Many Africans abandoned their native spiritual systems and adapted their conquerors. Today a lot (not all) of Africans don’t even realize this because they don’t teach the true history in schools just like they don’t in America. A colonial influenced spiritual system is the only one that is accepted.

Interesting fact? The Haitians prayed to the God “Ogun” (God of War) before they defeated the oppressors for their freedom. Ogun is an Orisha from a spiritual system considered “Voodoo” …I guess voodoo (Vodou) can’t be all that bad, huh?

"Vodoun is more than a Religion, it is a culture, a Science, an Art and a Lifestyle. As it is true that Africa is the Mother of Civilization, Vodoun is the mother of all Religions. We, Africans must proudly and respectfully honour the Heritage of our Ancestors. Every Year on the 9th and 10th January, we celebrate Life, the Forces that Govern the Cosmos and our African Culture. And it will be so for Eternity, I am making sure of that."
