When matters of social or civil injustice are taking place I typically sit in a more reflective space. There are pieces missing from our current dialogue on the topic and here's one of them. When you go to a rally are you prepared to get physical and/or be arrested? Or is it just a pastime? When there's a rally and folks get arrested who's paying their bail? Would you be willing to risk your own freedom for what you believe in or are you following a trend? Everything I say is based on opinions and experience so feel free to disregard if you disagree. #activism#socialjustice#protest#charlottesville#blacklivesmatter#civilrights#civilwar#racism#newslaves
Posit this: While we have them tearing down confederate monuments, do you think it's possible to have them tear down some of there passive-slave owning counterparts, or put new presidents on our currency--maybe a JFK, $20, or a Barack Obama $1--or is that too much to ask right now? Shit! Just realized today is payday; time to deposit my money into the confederate bank system, get me a hand full of slave owning dead presidents which I'll use to buy some product made by the hands of some supremacist. Can't make this shit up! Oh shit, I probably shouldn't have said that, but you should probably listen. IJS
Oh, don't get any ideas about asking them [the government] to replace those vacant monument slot with statues of prominent slaves--partially because that part of history largely doesn't exist anymore, but also because this is the "fig leaf" tactic of pacifying your voices. Well, I'm sure someone will figure it out, in the next 150 years or so. #youreBeingPlayedAndPlacated#waitForIt#iGotTime#shoutOutToAllThePear#newSlaves#spendingEverythingOnAlexanderWangGucciLouisVitonPradaNikeAdidas#leadersAndFollowers#imAboutToAirShitOut#realityIsHarderThanWeThought#brokeRacism#richRacism
What came first the egg or the chicken? History knows nothing about the early life and training of the Greek philosophers and this is true not only of the pre-Socratic philosophers: but also of Socrates, Plato and Aristotle, who appear in history about the age of eighteen and begin to teach at forty.
As a body of men they were undesirable to the state, (personae non gratae) and were consequently persecuted and driven into hiding and secrecy. Under such circumstances they kept no records of their activities and this was done in order to conceal their identity. After the conquest of Egypt by Alexander the Great, and the seizure and looting of the Royal Library at Alexandria, Aristotle's plan to usurp Egyptian philosophy, was subsequently carried out by members of his school: Theophrastus, Andronicus of Rhodes and Eudemus, who soon found themselves confronted with the problem of a chronology for a history of philosophy. (Introduction of Zeller's Hist. of Phil. p. 13). Throughout this effort there has been much speculation concerning the date of birth of philosophers, whom the public knew very little about. As early as the third century B.C. (274–194 B.C.) Eratosthenes, a Stoic drew up a chronology of Greek philosophers and in the second century B.C. (140) Apollodorus also drew up another. The effort continued, and in the first century B.C. (60–70 B.C.) Andronicus, the eleventh Head of the Peripatetic school, also drew up another.
This difficulty continued throughout the early centuries, and has come down to the present time for it appears that all modern writers on Greek Philosophy are unable to agree on
Do U beLIEve Lies? The evil geniuses. The great deceivers. As one attempts to read the history of Greek philosophy, one discovers a complete absence of essential information concerning the early life and training of the so-called Greek philosophers, from Thales to Aristotle. No writer or historian professes to know anything about their early education. All they tell us about them consists of (a) a doubtful date and
place of birth and (b) their doctrines; but the world is left to wonder who they were and from what source they got their early education, and would naturally expect that men who rose to the position of a Teacher among relatives, friends and associates, would be well-known, not only by them, but by the whole community.
On the contrary, men who might well be placed among the earliest Teachers in history, who had grown up from childhood to manhood, and had taught pupils, are represented as unknown, being without any domestic, social or early educational traces.
This is unbelievable, and yet it is a fact that the history of Greek philosophy has presented to the world a number of men whose lives it knows little or nothing about; but expects the world to accept them as the true authors of the doctrines which are alleged to be theirs.
In the absence of essential evidence, the world hesitates to recognise them as such, because the truth of this whole matter of Greek philosophy points to a very different direction. #GeorgeGMJames#StolenLegacy
#whodowethinkweare Racists will see this and say the Egyptians weren't black. Similar to how they know and see blacks being killed by cops and dont believe it. Dumb, deaf & blind. Ignorance is bliss to them because they benefit from being ignorant.
African history and culture trace their roots back to that pharaonic period, the ultimate source of African humanities. The same way the European/Western world traces its history and culture back to Greece and Rome. African human sciences, finally reconciled with its Ancient Egyptian sources, can retrace the entire history of the Nation, step-by-step.
On this immemorial timeline, the enslavement and colonial periods suffered by African people can be considered as little parenthesis. Yet, the terrible impact of colonial bound mis-education and cultural conditioning affects many people, Blacks and Whites alike. Consequently, innocent victims of "schooling" who have lost their historical memories, now find it hard to believe that, Black people actually played the earliest civilizing role in the world. That misleading education has damaged the minds, self-esteem and behavior of many people across racial lines: "The History of humanity will remain confused as long as as we fail to distinguish between the two early cradles in which nature fashioned the instincts, temperament, habits and ethical concepts of the two subdivisions before they met each other after a long separation, dating back to prehistoric times..."Cheikh Anta Diop
Dr. Cheikh Anta Diop, in his “L’Antiquité Africaine Par L’Image” (Notes Africaines No Special 145) drew two important conclusions:
Humanity born at the latitude of the African Great Lakes, near the Ecuador is by necessity pigmented (black) and African. This is substantiated by Gloger’s Law which states that warm blooded beings are pigmented in hot and humid climates”. All races are issued from the African race by direct relationships and, the other continents were peopled from Africa at the Homo erectus stage, as well as the Homo sapiens stage, which appeared about 150,000 years ago.
It has been finally proven that, for a time period beginning 5 million years ago up until the glacial thaw (1
The Christians’ objection to this argument involves freewill. They say that a being must have freewill to be happy. The omnibenevolent God did not wish to create robots, so he gave humans freewill to enable them to experience love and happiness. But the humans used this freewill to choose evil, and introduced imperfection into God’s originally perfect universe. God had no control over this decision, so the blame for our imperfect universe is on the humans, not God.
Here is why the argument is weak. First, if God is omnipotent, then the assumption that freewill is necessary for happiness is false. If God could make it a rule that only beings with freewill may experience happiness, then he could just as easily have made it a rule that only robots may experience happiness. The latter option is clearly superior, since perfect robots will never make decisions which could render them or their creator unhappy, whereas beings with freewill could. A perfect and omnipotent God who creates beings capable of ruining their own happiness is impossible.
Second, even if we were to allow the necessity of freewill for happiness, God could have created humans with freewill who did not have the ability to choose evil, but to choose between several good options.
Third, God supposedly has freewill, and yet he does not make imperfect decisions. If humans are miniature images of God, our decisions should likewise be perfect. Also, the occupants of heaven, who presumably must have freewill to be happy, will never use that freewill to make imperfect decisions. Why would the originally perfect humans do differently?
The point remains: the presence of imperfections in the universe disproves the supposed perfection of its creator.
Before we can discuss the existence of a thing, we must define it. Christians have endowed their God with all of the following attributes: He is eternal, all-powerful, and created everything. He created all the laws of nature and can change anything by an act of will. He is all-good, all-loving, and perfectly just. He is a personal God who experiences all of the emotions a human does. He is all-knowing. He sees everything past and future.
God’s creation was originally perfect, but humans, by disobeying him, brought imperfection into the world. Humans are evil and sinful, and must suffer in this world because of their sinfulness. God gives humans the opportunity to accept forgiveness for their sin, and all who do will be rewarded with eternal bliss in heaven, but while they are on earth, they must suffer for his sake. All humans who choose not to accept this forgiveness must go to hell and be tormented for eternity.
One Bible verse which Christians are fond of quoting says that atheists are fools. I intend to show that the above concepts of God are completely incompatible and so reveal the impossibility of all of them being true. Who is the fool? The fool is the one who believes impossible things and calls them divine mysteries.
Perfection Begets Imperfection
But, for the sake of argument, let’s continue. Let us suppose that this perfect God did create the universe. Humans were the crown of his creation, since they were created in God’s image and have the ability to make decisions. However, these humans spoiled the original perfection by choosing to disobey God.
We must here make a clear distinction between belief and faith, because, in general practice, belief has come to mean a state of mind which is almost the opposite of faith. Belief, as I use the word here, is the insistence that the truth is what one would “lief” or wish it to be. The believer will open his mind to the truth on the condition that it fits in with his preconceived ideas and wishes. Faith, on the other hand, is an unreserved opening of the mind to the truth, whatever it may turn out to be. Faith has no preconceptions; it is a plunge into the unknown. Belief clings, but faith lets go. In this sense of the word, faith is the essential virtue of science, and likewise of any religion that is not self-deception.
The present phase of human thought and history … almost compels us to face reality with open minds, and you can only know God through an open mind just as you can only see the sky through a clear window. You will not see the sky if you have covered the glass with blue paint.
But “religious” people who resist the scraping of the paint from the glass, who regard the scientific attitude with fear and mistrust, and confuse faith with clinging to certain ideas, are curiously ignorant of laws of the spiritual life which they might find in their own traditional records. A careful study of comparative religion and spiritual philosophy reveals that abandonment of belief, of any clinging to a future life for one’s own, and of any attempt to escape from finitude and mortality, is a regular and normal stage in the way of the spirit. Indeed, this is actually such a “first principle” of the spiritual life that it should have been obvious from the beginning, and it seems, after all, surprising that learned theologians should adopt anything but a cooperative attitude towards the critical philosophy of science. #alanwatts#iamorrin#orrinreligion#blacklivesmatter#wakeup
Truth shall set U Free. "The promised land is within, thus surrounding: Eden is Here.~ Youniversal Awareness ~ Eventually, you'll learn that you have everything you need. You may think of it through what you see, but just know that you are the creator of that thought; you have had everything all along because you are everything (both seen and unseen), and everything is you. The Universe created you out of the Universe, therefore you are the Universe: THAT, We Are; I Am. I LOVE YOUniverse.. Love is the true ocean of being: timelessness, the loss of itself. Within this loss, one is fulfilled: To be love is to give One Self to All. Surrendering is another word for becoming. We did not come from Earth, we are Earth; We are not in control, we are of control. Giving to the gift is the Spiritual revelation of growth. Welcome to our kingdom/king dome as One." ~
It is extremely important to note that man made churches are filled with lies and deceit. Vatican city ( Catholicism) holds 50 miles of ancient documents that no human is allowed to enter and read about, It is locked up underground in Vatican city, and nobody is allowed in there except for Vatican city officials (how lovely, and it shows how much the church loves you). You can look this up yourself, they even give a video tour of the vault and totally admit it is there, it is not some mad hat conspiracy, they totally admit it. You can be assured that there is tons of information locked away there about Divine Sacred Entheogen Plants, as every religion since the the first one, the Rig Veda religion 12,000 years ago (who used the Soma Plant), was started by Sacred Plants. To the roots of Buddhism, Hinduism, and on and on. The roots and origins of all major religions started with the Divine Plant Entheogens, including the Bible as there are clear references of Plant Entheogens in the bible (And Shamanism is the oldest form of Spiritual practice, at least 40,000 years ago with Ayahuasca, and Mother Ayahuasca is also in the Bible in the Book of Revelation as well). It is ALL about inner Light, and churches know nothing about inner Light as churches totally focus outwardly (in the past or fut
These works of truth are not simply strange things floating around in space somewhere, because truth is a kind of being that lives but never dies, born but never ceases. It is another name for the human soul, but whatever we call it, it is the inevitable victory of good over evil. It is the complete victory of faith over fear, it is the complete victory of virtue over vice. And it is achieved because it is potentially possible for the individual. And each individual human being is born with the potential of the perfection of truth, within himself. There’s nothing that can prevent an individual from attaining truth except his own reluctance to improve his ways.
It is possible for him to realize that some of the truths that he must ultimately know are beyond him. He will not be able to be perfect at the moment. He will not be able to be perfect as his father in heaven is perfect. But he will be able to move forward, step by step, in a dedicated search for reality. The moment he starts the steps, the moment he begins to make an effort to direct and vitalize his own integrity, the journey towards reality begins. And in that moment, the shining being of truth takes his hand and leads him to eternity, nothing will interrupt it, nothing can prevent it, nothing can have victory over the inevitable victory of reality over illusion.
We have lived for a long time and illusion, and some of this illusion wee call learned knowledge. We think science is very wise. We think science is solving everything. We think that Einstein was incredible when he found the formula for atomic fission. These are not the truths we need. These are not truths at all. They are struggling with the misuse of universal potentials. The atom, the cell, all of these things, are each of them a unit. Each is a truth in itself and must be treated as one. It must be recognized. And if we wish to advance things we must work together to make these various parts work together well in us. If we can make the cells in our own body cooperate we have health. If we can make various forms of knowledge of truth cooperate we will have peace in the world. #manlyphall#iamorrin

Exodus 20:4&5 You shall not make any graven image, you shall not bow down to them, nor serve them. For I the Lord, am a jealous God, visiting iniquity of the fathers upon the children".
Do you realize what you have just read?
What is being said here, is the absolute cause of disease and corruption all over the world.
You must not focus on the physical, outer aspect of God, (graven image).
By doing so, you will neglect the mind, the consciousness,your meditation, and you will open yourself, and generations of children, to disease.
We sing songs, we read scriptures, we pray, but we leave the place were God dwells as a desolate wilderness.
We are led by people who create all types of outer experiences with candles, and various services.
Our total concentration on God is without, leaving us with no thought of that great light within.
And our religious leaders have made this so.
Jeremiah 12:10 Many pastors have destroyed my vineyard, they have trodden my portion under foot, they have made my pleasant portion a desolate wilderness.
And so the mind is not renewed. It is not purified. Instead it takes pride in our cult, and is willing to go to war against the others whom we consider to be Satanic.
The mind is not purified. It becomes diseased.
The disease, is as a result of neglecting the purification of the mind. Neglecting the nurturing of God who is an impulse of the mind.
So you see, just how important, meditation really is.
As Jesus said in Luke 11:52 you take away the key when you do not enter within yourselves. #billdonahue#iamorrin#kyrieirving#lebronjames#nba#blacklivesmatter#stopcooning#knowthyself#KnowledgeIsPower#knowingishalfthebattle#iamorrin#Stephencurry#beyonce
Your body is the temple or "template" for the knowledge used on this planet. Its template is used for the building of different technologies or "tech-knowlogies" that assist humans on their journey and experience here. One technology that was designed and duplicated from the human body is the vehicle you drive. Its made to do everything as if it were the human body. And now, the vehicle you drive has been praised and treated better than the human vehicle. So, lets see how this human vehicle operates so that it could be treated better...
Your vehicle has a body and body parts. Those body parts are performing, receiving, and sending information for the benefit of the vehicle and the operator. The operator is You (the spirit, true self); and the operator is trying to build the perfect vehicle to operate on multiple dimensions. The Soul (the mind, feelings, emotions) is the vehicle that operates on multiple dimensions that the operator is trying to make as a perfect balance between physical and spirit (energy).
There's certain information that the operator needs the body of the vehicle to intake in order to function properly in every situation. So the body is provided with what it needs on this planet, natural and unnatural, to help and show the vehicle (the soul) what is and what's not best for it. If the body experiences pain and discomfort from unproper care and intaking unnatural things on its journey, then the body will show its faults and the engine control unit (brain, dna) will record and store them as information to remind it whats not best for the vehicle (soul). The operator takes this information and makes the proper improvements to the entire vehicle so that it would have a better quality performance on its journey of perfection (completion) in and on multiple dimensions.

we are reduced by our religions to filthy
sinners groping for some God in the sky to let us crawl
on our knees to him, instead of the true nature of
existence which is to become one with it. What is important about a lightbulb is not the filament
or the glass but the light. And what is important about each of us is not the body
and its nerves but the consciousness that shines
And when one lives for that instead of for protection of
the bulb one is in Buddha consciousness.
But what do our religions actually teach.
Not the way to an experience of identity with the Godhead
since that is the prime heresy according to them,
but the way and the means to establish and maintain
a relationship to a named God.
And how is such a relationship to be achieved.
Only through membership in a certain supernaturally
endowed uniquely favored social group.
The Old Testament has a covenant with a certain historic
people, the only holy race, the only holy thing in fact on earth,
and according to Christians they can only get in on that
through the incarnation of Christ Jesus who is to be known
as true God and true man, which in the Christian view is a
miracle whereas in the Orient everyone is to be
known as true God and true man.
And how do we confirm in life our relationship to that
one and only God Man.
Through baptism and thereby spiritual membership in his
Church which is to say, once again through a social instruction.
Our whole knowledge to the universally known guiding
symbols of the unfolding mysteries has been by the way
of the claims of these two self sanctified historical social groups
( Christianity and Judaism),. And the claims of both have today been disqualified,
historically, astronomically, biologically and every
other way and everybody knows it.
No wonder our clergymen look anxious and their
congregations confused. #iamorrin#knowingishalfthebattle#knowyourhistory#knowthyself
So it was said, God’s Sun had 12 companions, or helpers, that assisted His lifesaving work. So it was, God’s Sun had 12 apostles (or months) that followed Him religiously through His life. Incidentally, now you know why the American jury system has 12 jurors who help bring the truth to light, with the ‘Light of Truth’ ... Keep in mind God’s Sun symbolically represented the light of truth, but was condemned by His enemies who could not endure the light of truth in their life. When we are confronted with the harsh realities of life, the light of truth, which we do not wish to face, and which runs counter to our views, such truth is judged in your mind, or judged in the temple area of your brain, and put to death in your head!
Therefore God’s Sun –The Truth and The Light – is put to death at Golgotha, or Place of the Skull, located somewhere between your ears! This putting to death of the light of truth in your mind is always accompanied by two thieves: Regret for the past and Fear of the future. And of course God’s Sun goes to His death wearing a corona – Latin for Crown of Thorns.” So your “temples” or at the Golgatha (which means Place of the Skull), God’s Sun, the light of truth, is judged and crucified along with the two thieves of past and future.
The Sun’s corona, the plasma atmosphere around the Sun, is then allegorically used as the Son’s (Latin translation) Crown of Thorns.
Cultures all over the ancient world kept track of time and seasons based on the movement of the Sun. They invented circular sundials and sun calendars which recorded daily and yearly time (lunar calendars recorded months). This method of circular solar based time keeping was used by the ancient Mexicans, Mayans, Incas, Aztecs, Sumerians, Babylonians, Assyrians, Egyptians, Celtics, Aryans and more.
Out of these circular, pictorial Sun calendars developed the Holy cross. The Sun is portrayed on a cross – a circle with perpendicular lines intersecting in the middle, the horizontal axis representing the Spring and Autumn Equinoxes, the vertical axis representing the Summer and Winter Solstices. #JordanMaxwell#iamorrin#knowingishalfthebattle
Believers are literally Full of Holy Shit. Their temple is unpure from the lies they believe and teach. Many refuse to admit that there is a dismissive and even cavalier spirit of gluttony that is pervasive throughout the Christian community. As a result the church is more greatly exposed to everything that raises itself above God. The church is not just “at risk” it has already been thoroughly invaded by corrupt attitudes, uncontrolled passions, blindness to compromise and theological disease. The damage is done – the church is suffering from physical and spiritual morbid-obesity and as a result people are physically dying.
It’s not enough to recognize the sin of obesity in the church. At the very least that does nothing more than lead to regret. At best, it leads to temporary repentance. This is a call – a call to YOU, to stand firm. Be resolute in your convictions. Refuse to turn a blind eye. Be compassionately bold to speak the truth. Take action and live with integrity.
