Too Much Black 2.1

11 Nov

Precious MuataDo not attempt to deal with the system or its representatives by yourself. The system has all your information and knows exactly what makes you tick. You may think that you have the right to question them and stand up for your rights, but you need to understand that the system is above the law. Instead of justice be done, the system will increase the punishment and revoke your privileges.

The system has insured that you get attached to a lot of sick people and things. Your schooling and training on one side, advertisement and society on the other side. The system can easily move to block you and your career, take away all your material possessions, stress your personal relationships to the point of irreversible break-down, and cause you to separate from your own mind. This is all possible as separating you from your own mind started in kindergarten. And there are many signs that it may have already started in the hospital where you were born.

Whatever you think the system is, it is much worse. This system does not forget and it does not forgive. It never sleeps. It knows what you show and what you think does not show. It knows about your helpers and your demons. It knows your past, present and future. It knows more than you can remember to know. You need to arm yourself against it. Wisdom is hard to come by, so knowledge will have to do.

To know how to protect yourself or even rise above the system, you need information. A lot of information that can lead to understanding. Then to go out there and internalize that understanding through direct experience with the system. The knowledge of what the system is and how it operates, will lead to information on how to deal with the system, and for the dauntless ones, there will be access to information on how to rise above it.

Do understand that to fight the system, is to be fighting yourself. The system does not exist apart from you. To rise above the system, means that you have to rise above yourself first. Do not be the one standing in your own way. Do not be the one standing in our way. Defiance without self-knowledge is futile. We set our own minds straight, so the system cannot possess it and have us do as it wants. We make up our own minds and take responsibility to become independent of the system – or at least, to learn the rules to no longer be brutally victimized.

    “To rise above the system, means that you have to rise above yourself first. Do not be the one standing in your own way.”

    Interesting. Russell Brand makes exactly the same point in his new book “Revolution.”

    Interesting. Wiki shows that his book is from this year. Big picture of him on the cover. I see the trick with evil-love still works. I am not on the Brandwagon. I try to stay away from it as far as I can without making it into a big deal. I like the sketch he did on Hugo Boss when accepting some award. Embarr-ass himself to get his current acting role.

    I put this on TMB several years ago, I was surprised that it I had nothing to add to it, so I put it up here to break the negative babble for a bit. And see if I will publish more snipbits of this ongoing writing project that I call a book at TMB.

      I have to admit Brand is pretty full of himself and that can be pretty off putting. That being said, it’s pretty rare for high profile activists to advise people to get themselves firmly centered before they try to overthrow the system. Dick Gregory used to tell us that (when he spoke to local groups – not in his media role). To eat healthy and to drink plenty of water that wasn’t chlorinated and fluoridated.

    Very astute post. People are just waking up to this. Mind if I reblog to “Citizens, not serfs”?

    Sure thing. Reblogs is fair game.

  5. prayerwarriorpsychicnot December 5, 2014 at 4:47 pm #

    Reblogged this on Citizens, not serfs.

    I just wanted to say hello and drop a link to my recent blog “the Santa Claus controversy: Black vs White or “Should we just make Black Pete White Pete now?”
    I came accross your blog while web surfing for info on the Black Pete tradition. Over here in America weve been having some hubbub about Afro Americans wanting a Black Santa for their kids…
    https://hucipher.wordpress.com/2015/12/26/santa-claus-black-vs-white-or-should-we-just-make-black-pete-white-pete-now/

    Ive also wrote a blog comparing the way Black people must maneuver in the world to Chess.
    https://hucipher.wordpress.com/2015/06/08/the-game-of-chess-as-a-metaphore-for-the-afro-american-experience/
    I think it goes along well with your post above.
    I hope you dig the scribble

    Happy Holidays
