Laudato Si

The whole world is about to make an unparalleled rite of passage.

How you decide to cut down rare indigenous trees in order to pave way for a stone wall fence still baffles me. Like you can't improvise or something. These baby boomers. Smdh. The number of trees that have been felled in Nakuru. God have mercy on us.

His Holiness Pope Francis is the chillest Sensei to ever traverse the 21st century. The most slept on Sensei matter of factly. Perhaps to the levels of Marcus Aurelius, Arcanum or Rumi.

He produced an encyclical named (Laudato si’ : Italian for : “Praise be to you”)
Subtitle: “On Care For Our Common Home”.
Which I curiously went to check out expecting the same old hackneyed environmental tired punditry shit. He does more than talk about climate change, and he makes it look sexy.  The blind see what they want to see.  Don’t let the climate change talk make you fail to notice other teachings in the encyclical. In this encyclical, he takes an ethical interdisciplinary standpoint, a principled way of looking at what’s licit and illicit; factors like mutation, healthy politics, technology, bureaucratic hate, humanism, The financial crisis of 2007-2008, A jab towards Capitalism conjectured by anti eco-snobbery rhetorics , anthropocentrism, anarchy, poetry. All these with a dab of ranch. Supplemented by other disciplines including Islam. He basically points to the cracks in the planet that we inhabit. “The external deserts in the world are growing, because the internal deserts have become so vast.” “The emptier a person’s heart is, the more he or she needs things to buy, own and consume. It becomes almost impossible to accept the limits imposed by reality.”

The Pope could easily be met with accusations of being vehemently ipso facto disgusted by Romanticism or being a Communist Pope but he affirms his position as that good kid who can’t get bullied. He even says “realities are more important than ideas.”
You can’t put words in his mouth.
Pope Francis’ reverse heavenly medieaval diction & language with a profound conviction to match to the extent as if he’s God’s direct mouthpiece or puppet. And how excellent is it to be God’s puppet.
Never have I seen a man so sure of his authority as a teacher like Pope Francis. You’d think he’s Ezekiel incarnate

“If we scan the regions of our planet, we immediately see that humanity has disappointed God’s expectations.”

This one by Pope Francis hit me hard.
The society was dying from drowning and he’s the only one who’s giving it mouth to mouth without trying to kiss it pervertedly like everyone else. His is the only best solution of saving society.

“An authentic humanity, calling for a new synthesis, seems to dwell in the midst…….. Almost unnoticed, like a mist seeping gently beneath a closed door.”

I applaud the book because it shares a lot of my views. Most of the views and standpoint ideologue philosophy I held prior to reading the book.
It just happens that we share the same views. His are just wisely and more elaborate. You feel me. He occupies a point of view that compels his readers to take him seriously. Me am so compromised by my past stupid writings.

We need more people who are capable of staring into the abyss of darkness without falling in, and without losing sight of the light.

Spiritual,? Not really.
The word spiritual has acquired a bad name with its embrace by New-Agers et al. with its association with magic and out of the world mumbo-jumbo. So I use it reservedly.
So not really spiritual.
One thing for sure is that he ain’t dogmatic.

I heard that Pope Francis gave Trump this encyclical when he visited the Vatican. It is too soft for a staunch Capitalist like Trump. It might not even touch his heart or sway his views on Production & Climate change. A little cussing; you know a little motherfucker here and there might have helped the cause.
And it has a Stockholm Syndrome point of view lecturing to it. So yes a little motherfucker would have helped.

“………and that being good and descent are worth it.
We have had enough of immorality and the mockery of ethics, goodness, faith and honesty. It is time to acknowledge that light-hearted superficiality has done us no good.”

Everything in the book/encyclical is so deep I can’t even quote verbatim. Lest I end up quoting the whole book.

Am so happy that Pope Francis made a piece so worthy for the Catholic Millennials to read.
My siz laughing at my poor taste in literary works. Pope Francis is G.O.A.T in my eyes. So, she says whatever floats your goats. She’d rather read about vampires.

Finally someone I can call Sensei. Take that Dalai Lama Louis Farrakhan P.L.O Lumumba nonsense away from me.
Behold, Pope Francis.
Master Sensei.

3 popes in my lifetime. One survived an assassination attempt, died later on, one retired, you are the pope for Christ’s sake, *literally* actually for Peter’s sake; you don’t get to retire. You die on that seat. Pope John Paul even drooling in his last days causing people to go emotional with pity, never retired till his death. Then there is this leftist woke pope. Pope Francis. My Nigga. I actually like him.
Pope John Paul II was a Politician. We now have a Pope. You know, Patron-like, leftist, activist for the weak and hip at the same time. Pope 256.
We have the wokest Pope ever. You just gotta love the guy. Quoting verbatim from his encyclical Laudato Si:

” Everything is related”
“Everything is connected”
“Everything is interrelated”

“Woven together”
“Part of a network which we will never fully explore and understand”
“It cannot be emphasized enough how everything is interconnected”

The reason am saying he’s the wokest pope is because of this. The words “everything is connected” or something of the sort speaking about divine harmony and fraternity or sacred geometry have been repeated in the encyclical close to 70 times give or take 15 to 20.

image

They echo Hippie thoughts, Hopi Native American thought

image

and Hermetic Qabbalah doctrine.

image

So yes he’s woke. Even Leonardo da Vinci held the same thoughts

image

“Learn how to see, Realize that everything connects to everything else.”
                                          ~ Leonardo da Vinci

From the encyclical;
[Sic]
“Intimately and inseparably connected in this universe.”
“All of us are linked by unseen bonds and together form a kind of a universal family, a sublime communion which fills us with a sacred, affectionate and humble respect.”

image

“There is an interrelation between ecosystems and between the various spheres of social interaction, demonstrating yet again that “the whole is greater than the part.”
“…….also entails a loving awareness that we are not disconnected from the rest of creatures, but joined in a splendid universal communion.”
“…. human life is grounded on three fundamental and closely intertwined relationships: with God, with our neighbour and with the earth itself”
“As believers, we do not look at the world from without but from within, conscious of the bonds with which the father has linked us to all beings.”
“Give us the grace to feel profoundly joined to everything that is.”

image

The Unified Theory of everything
We are binary strings of ones and zeroes. Our subconscious minds are coded with innate mental connections back to our Universal Programmer.

image

Think of Sacred Geometry as the written law of creation. Rigid, flowing algorithms of energy converted into a physical formula. This is the unified theory of everything.
Wise move accepting it into the church Pope Francis.

image

All beings are energetically connected.

image

image

image

Separation is an illusion. It is spiritual.
Mainstream conditioning shall never laugh me out of the spiritual philosophy of Pope Francis

image

I will explore the possibility of a path out of the seeming impossibility of escaping the cul-de-sac of our spiritually disinherited and disenchanted condition. According to Haile Selassie: “Spirituality does not come from religion. It comes from our soul.”

“We must stop confusing religion, and spirituality. Religion is a set of rules, regulations, and rituals created by humans which were supposed to help people spiritually. Due to human imperfection, religion has become corrupt, political, divisive, and a tool for power struggle. Spirituality is not theology or ideology. It is simply a way of life, pure and original given by the Most High. Spirituality is a network linking us to the Most High, the universe, and each other.” ~ Haile Selassie I

image

      Or not
Therein lies the problem. You can’t replace something with nothing.
“A little philosophy inclineth man’s mind to atheism; but depth in philosophy bringeth men’s mind about to religion.” – Sir Francis Bacon

Pope Francis states that:

” A spirituality which forgets God as all powerful and creator is not acceptable. This is how we end up worshipping earthly powers, or ourselves usurping the place of God, even to the point of claiming an unlimited right to trample his creation underfoot.”

“I would add that religious classics can prove meaningful in every age; they have an enduring power to open new horizons….. Is it reasonable and enlightened to dismiss certain writings simply because they arose in the context of religious belief?”

If there is something like Christian braggadocio, Pope Francis further states:

“The rich heritage of Christian spirituality, the fruit of twenty centuries of personal and communal experience has a precious contribution to the renewal of humanity.”

“I am interested in how such a spirituality can motivate us to a more passionate concern for the protection of our world. A commitment this lofty cannot be sustained by doctrine alone, without a spirituality capable of inspiring us, without an “interior impulse which encourages, motivates, nourishes and gives meaning to our individual and communal activity.”

As you can see His Holiness is rooted in a spiritual understanding of the human condition.

                       ∞∞∞ ∞∞∞

“Relationships have been broken, both outwardly and within us. This rupture is sin. The harmony between the Creator, humanity and creation as a whole was disrupted by our presuming to take the place of God and refusing to acknowledge our creaturely limitations. This in turn distorted our mandate to “have dominion” over the earth.”

Fair assumption Pope.

Sorry Master Sensei but I’ll have to differ with you on this part. This part where you say:

“We are not God.”

The only way of making man’s responsibility as custodian of the earth stem from within is by declaring him a God.

image

We are the gods. If we aren’t the gods then let the true gods come clean these earthly mess that is ……. Well we are still fucked either way coz every earthly mess is of humans’ own doing.

man is a divine being—the likeness of God, or better yet, God’s vehicle of manifestation in the world.

image
We are the gods

Behold, thouthren,

“Bid the invaders take the shoes from off their feet, for God is here within.”
  -Ralph Waldo Emerson

image

Or better yet, transcendent in comparison to other species.
We are the true gods. We’ll even cause the Armageddon. Mankind will completely annihilate itself without help from outside.

The Anunnaki👽regrets giving Humans free will because through EVOLution, Humans already surpassed their slave DNA & are re-becoming Gods.

It’s all in Urban Dictionary, I don’t make this shit up. 
Truth is a mighty volume of epigrams and paradoxes.
… Real truth is caught in single word.
… And the ultimate truth bleeds even now in a-
Wreathed mess of skinless time. Time!

That old saying of “I’ll believe it when I see it”… well, it really should be, “When I believe it, I will see it.”

According to the 11 Laws of God:

0. Law of Amen – You were made in the likeness of a peace that nothing can disturb. Reclaim your peace that you may attain to your reason for coming into existence – the enjoyment of life.

1. Law of Ausar – Your nature is an unconquerable peace, therefore nothing or no one in the world can be against you. All experiences come to you to promote your reclamation of peace, that you may in turn, aquire wisdom and power.

2. Law of Tehuti – When all of your thoughts, feelings and actions reflect the Word of God, then the power of God’s spirit and a peace that nothing can challange will flow through your being.

3. Law of Sekher – When the emotions of Man manifest in response to the Word of God, they have the power to influence the course of any and all events in the world.

4. Law of Ma’at – God needs you in order to come into the world. Fulfilling God’s need is the highest act of love, and only through your love for God can you fulfill your love for others. Become the Love of God in the world for the protection of the world.

5. Law of Herukhuti – Know that God neither punishes nor rewards nor protect, that you will have the comfort of controlling these yourself.

6. Law of Heru – You have the power but not the right to ignore God’s Law. Choose to follow the Law of God with the Love and Joy that grows out of understanding and the wisdom and power of God’s spirit will flow through your being.

7. Law of Het-Heru – It is not what you imagine. It is who is imagining. Are you a human or a divine being?

8. Law of Sebek – It is not what you think or what you affirm. It is who is thinking and affirming. Are you a human or a divine being?

9. Law of Auset – Prepare to sacrifice everything to become the vessel of God on earth, and you will, in turn, receive everything.

10. Law of Geb – Know that from heaven you came and to heaven you will return, seek not enduring works on earth.

You become what you believe. You are what you worship.

At all. There is no GOD outside of the divine self. Az in Namaste. Namaste directly translates to “the divine in me bows to the divine in you.”

Qwani how do you think confessions in Catholic work. It follows the Namaste principle. The divine in me lays bare my shameful acts to a chosen divine(Priest) for absolution from sin. Approved by humans (gods).

Prayers too. The god in us is akin to our bargaining tool to the universe. The god in us is connected to the universe. If you ask God for something, the God in you through the web connection to the universe makes it happen.  ‘The Universe is nothing but the Divine uttering its own name to itself.’ – Ramakrishna. Most of y’all may say that’s tantamount to thinking like a Mason, but boy o boy; Absence of evidence is not evidence of absence. Everything we see is a perspective, not the truth. It is multiplicity that reveals unity; one is only definable because two exists; knowledge is predicated on this illusion of separation.

image

Whatever the Ritual involved, the Rosary is designed to speak to your feminine side. Its actually the only feminine prayer making it the strongest prayer on Earth. A Prayer with a motherly benevolence.
Women are emotional in order to feel the divine energy at the highest levels and to be supreme healers and lovers and mothers. Not to drive men insane. Her deep spiritual connection to feelings is to inspire a man to his spiritual heights as well. She is not a nag, she is an oracle.

We are living a life out of balance by only having one feminine prayer. The rest are all masculine. Yin & Yang much? Protect The Divine Masculine
Uplift The Divine Feminine

Even though Pope Francis blatantly says that ‘We are not God’, he turns around and says this later:

“each of these sublime realities is God. This is not because the finite things of this world are really divine, but because the mystic experiences the intimate connection between God and all beings and thus feels that all beings are God.”

That’s a subtle acknowledgement. I know the nuances involved in Papacy. It was imperative for him to denounce but still imperative for him to acknowledge. He’s perpetuating binary thinking. Mahn the word became flesh in order to remind us that we are the true gods.

“Grace, which tends to manifest itself tangibly, found unsurpassable expression when God himself became man and gave himself as food for his creatures. An act of Cosmic love. “Yes, Cosmic!”

Not my words. But I know that this is a nefarious way of using his words to justify my theories but the only panacea.

“The universe unfolds in God, who fills it completely.”
“The ideal is not only to pass from the exterior to the interior to discover the action of God in the soul, but also to discover God in all things.” Bam!

In the beginning of time, the subjective soul was unconscious of itself. It then evolved overtime to become conscious of itself, and then conscious of other in relation to self. In time, the Soul will evolve in consciousness to develop the realization that the Self and other are One, and thus complete one rotation of the circle of life.
This is why Saints have the ability to pray for us. The self and other are one. This is even why we get to decide who and who become Saints.
Saint Aquinas
Saint Anthony
Saint Mary
Have the abilities of praying for us.
What is bound on earth is bound in heaven.
We decide who the Saints are. Like St. Valentine who was beaten by clubs, beheaded, buried under the cover of darkness, disinterred by his followers, is commemorated  by sending each other chocolates in honor of his martyrdom.

We decide for ourselves everything on earth.
National Anthems, laws, everything.

God chooses the leaders, huh. God doesn’t choose the leaders, we choose them. Coz we are the gods.

God won’t interfere with Kim Jong Un and Trump’s pissing contest.

God doesn’t meddle but Lucifer meddles. Hence the concept of selling one’s soul to the devil. It goes like this
Lucifer ain’t a god; hence cannot create; thus uses us (humans/gods) gods in flesh to create. Evil & Nefarious.

The gods are great but people are greater
For it is in their hearts that gods are born

Old cosmologies, symbol systems and religions are the products of humans’ own creativity; God just approves by putting a stamp on the current unanimous worldly zeitgeist.

Mat 18:18 “Assuredly, I say to you, whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven.

And zeitgeists do change. Abrahamic Religions just happen to be the main current Zeitgeist.

image
As above so below. What's bound on earth is bound in heaven

No ‘new’ is as good, as the ‘old’
For ‘old’ is all, but, there to gage
In bazaars of ‘now’, still past is sold.

image
There are only two options. Either Become CHRIST conscious or join the Illuminati

The awakening of consciousness is the next evolutionary step for mankind.
If by binding something on earth it gets bound in heaven, then there’s so much we could achieve together but ‘together’ is a word we miss in our socialisation, hence the purpose of wokenisation.
Romans 11.17 – Try to do what everyone considers to be good.
Being woke means an analogy as much as coming out of slumber if we fail to realize that we are the true gods.

image

image

There is no term more ubiquitous, obnoxious, and self-serving in our current lexicon as “woke.” Woke is safety-pin politics, masturbatory symbolism, and virtue signalling of a deflated civil society insulated by algorithms, filter bubbles, and Google Chrome extensions that replace pictures of Donald Trump with Pinterest recipes.
Woke is a misnomer —— it’s actually asleep and myopic. Woke is a safe space for the easily distracted and defensive pop culture inbred. Woke is the average millenial curled up in a fetal ball scribbling think pieces about Konza City and Game of Thrones while its rights get trampled by ascendent fascism, domestically and globally.

The main reason the Pope doesn’t want to acknowledge that we are gods is not to precipitate a “The People vs. The Gods” debate but because he is against anthropocentrism.

“Modern anthropocentrism has paradoxically ended up prizing technical thought over reality, since “the technological mind sees nature as an insensate order, as a cold body of facts, as a mere ‘given’, as an object of utility, as a material to be hammered into useful shape; it views the cosmos similarly as a mere ‘space’ into which objects can be thrown with complete indifference.”

“The intrinsic dignity of the world is thus compromised. When human beings fail to find their true place in this world, they misunderstand themselves and end up acting against themselves.”

“Yes we have unique capacities of knowledge, will, freedom and responsibility but we shouldn’t be anthropocentric. Since a misguided anthropocentrism would yield to biocentrism which would entail adding yet another imbalance, failing to solve present problems and adding new ones. A misguided anthropocentrism leads to a misguided lifestyle.”

“When human beings place themselves at the centre, they give absolute priority to immediate interests.”

According to the Holy Father,

“the best way to restore men and women to their rightful place, putting an end to their claim to absolute dominion over the earth, is to speak once more of the figure of a father who creates and who alone owns the world. Otherwise, human beings will always try to impose their own laws and interests on reality.”

the science of Laudato si’ is watertight. He intentionally left a few lose ends for you to fill in the blanks and decide whether to tighten or loosen further the ends.
By being against tyrannical anthropocentrism, is the Pope endorsing the thought of evolution without really endorsing it? You feel me?.
I mean Laudato Si provides a blank check of sorts to anyone willing to play the role of the tough talking straight shooter.
Am more than glad to do that

Climate Change Vs. Global Warming
Fossil Fuels vs. Plastics
Deforestation vs. Endangered Species

Global warming is not real. Climate change is, and that’s because the earth goes in cycles every few hundred years. If it is real it should be put under climate change. Fuck this duplicity.

Global warming obfuscates climate change.
Plastics obfuscate fossil fuels
Endangered species obfuscate deforestation.

one way to disarm a dangerous idea is to give it a non-threatening euphemism.
This is what is happening right now. The elite or whoever control the world won’t allow Capitalism to fail. Every solution to the world’s mess is economically insensible. So they use diversionary techniques. Make you talk about Global Warming instead of Climate Change, Plastics instead of Fossil Fuels and endangered species instead of deforestation.

one way to disarm a dangerous idea is to give it a non-threatening euphemism.

Does the scientific community, NASA and the world Elite have something to hide about our existence? Absolutely! sooner or later you might realize even reality is make believe

Pope Francis tells us :

  “Considering all the available information and of calling things by their name. It sometimes happens that complete information is not put on the table; a selection is made on the basis of particular interests, be they politico-economic or ideological. This makes it difficult to reach a balanced and prudent judgement on different questions, one which takes into account all the pertinent variables.”

All humans are susceptible to the “Illusion of Truth” effect – The more we hear something, the more we believe it’s true.

Global warming is not real. Climate change is, and that’s because the earth goes in cycles every few hundred years. If at all it is real, it should be put under climate change. Climate change can result from position of continents, axis tilt; orbit ellipticity, and precession, HOWEVER. Those processes take… Thousands and thousands of years and can’t explain the current state of rapid warming. That’s why people are calling it global warming.

Many tend to forget about the worst once the good times return, however briefly.

We romanticize summer so much in the winter. That time the heat? The smells? The scorching sun?

In the wet months you forget about global warming.. You even joke that the world is too wet it needs to be put in rice… But when its dry and hot you start your empty anti eco snobbery rhetoric

I honestly don’t care. Not in a bad way. I just don’t have room in my heart for endangered species and all that other bull. Only elephants. No need bullshitting around. Mahn too much new age bullshit hypocrisy.

Let me tell you about endangered species, all right? Saving
endangered species is just one more arrogant attempt by humans to control
nature. It’s arrogant meddling. It’s what got us in trouble in the first
place. Doesn’t anybody understand that? Interfering with nature. Over
90%, way over 90% of all the species that have ever lived on this planet,
ever lived, are gone. They’re extinct. We didn’t kill them all. They
just disappeared. That’s what nature does. We’re so self-important, so
self-important. Everybody is going to save something now. Save the
trees, save the bees, save the whales, save those snails. And the
greatest arrogance of all, save the planet. What?

I’m tired of these self-righteous environmentalists, these middle-class
‘Woke’ baby boomers who think the only thing wrong with this country is
there aren’t enough Half marathons, people trying to make the world safe
for their Toyotas. There is nothing wrong with the planet. Nothing wrong
with the planet. The planet is fine. The people are (fucked) —
difference, difference. The planet is fine. Compared to the people, the
planet is doing great. It’s been here four and a half billion years. Did
you ever think about the arithmetic? The planet has been here four and a
half billion years. We’ve only been engaged in heavy industry for a
little more than 200 years.

Two hundred years versus four and a half billion, and we have the
conceit to think that somehow we’re a threat, that somehow we’re going to
put in jeopardy this beautiful little blue-green ball that’s just
a-floatin’ around the sun? The planet has been through a lot worse than
us, been through all kinds of things worse than us, been through
earthquakes, volcanoes, plate tectonics, continental drift, solar flares,
sunspots, magnetic storms, the magnetic reversal of the poles, hundreds of
thousands of years of bombardment by comets and asteroids and meteors,
worldwide floods, tidal waves, worldwide fires, erosion, cosmic rays,
recurring ice ages, and we think some plastic bags and some aluminum cans
are going to make a difference? The planet isn’t going anywhere. We are!
We’re going away.

image
These things had to go
The world only had room for the African Elephant
Leave the polar bears alone. Its their turn to evolve.
The most conscious are the gods.

The universe is a beautiful woman. Choosy. And it chose us, mammals over reptiles. Mega reptiles (dinosaurs) went into extinction for mammals to thrive. The universe chose mammals because it knew that only mammals had the right ingredients (love for young ones, breastfeeding, internal fertilization) for springing up a being so high in intelligence and intricacy. A being who was able to find the earth’s clitoris and make her cum. Man. Its our turn now. The best we could ask of the universe is 10 million years unchecked by other species.

[Sic]

“Sobriety and humility were not favourably regarded in the last century”

We’re going away. Pack your shit, folks. We’re going away. And we won’t leave much of a trace, either. Maybe a little Styrofoam … The planet’ll be here and we’ll be long gone. Just another failed mutation. Just another closed-end biological mistake. An evolutionary cul-de-sac. The planet’ll shake us off like a bad case of fleas.

The planet will be here for a long, long, LONG time after we’re gone, and it will heal itself, it will cleanse itself, ’cause that’s what it does. It’s a self-correcting system. The air and the water will recover, the earth will be renewed. And if it’s true that plastic is not degradable, well, the planet will simply incorporate plastic into a new paradigm: the earth plus plastic. The earth doesn’t share our prejudice toward plastic. Plastic came out of the earth. The earth probably sees plastic as just another one of its children. Could be the only reason the earth allowed us to be spawned from it in the first place. It wanted plastic for itself. Didn’t know how to make it. Needed us. Could be the answer to our age-old egocentric philosophical question, “Why are we here?”

Plastic… asshole.

“Doomsday predictions can no longer be met with irony or disdain. We may well be leaving to coming generations debris, desolation and filth. The pace of consumption, waste and environmental change had so stretched the planet’s capacity that our contemporary lifestyle, as unsustainable as it is, can only precipitate catastrophes, such as those which even now periodically occur in different areas of the world.”

“Although the post-industrialist period may well be remembered as one of the most irresponsible in history, nonetheless there is reason to hope that humanity at the dawn of the twenty-first century will be remembered for having generously shouldered its grave responsibilities.” 😂 😂

“When nature is viewed solely as a source of profit and gain, this had serious consequences for society. The vision of “might is right” has engendered immense inequality, injustice and acts of violence against the majority of humanity, since resources end up in the hands of the first comer of the most powerful : the winner takes all.”

                            ∞∞∞ ∞∞∞

Pope Francis seemingly speaks to Kenya, Nairobi to be specific in Chapter 3 of the encyclical – Human Ecology.
All I could see was Mukuru/ Kibra/ Korogocho/ Mathare/ Baba Dogo/ Dandora and KiaMichael. The populous Eastlands. This area houses over 2.6 million or 60 per cent of the city’s population and its most active workforce.

“Respect for our dignity as human beings often jars with the chaotic realities that people have to endure in city life.”

“It is important that the different parts of a city be well integrated and that those who live there have a sense of the whole, rather than being confined to one neighborhood and failing to see the larger city as space which they share with others.”

This is very true mahn. In Kibra, the young and old are equal in hopelessness. Kibera, Mathare and Kangemi are a ticking time bomb. Just one mistake in the heights of Charles Taylor could lead to the biggest pogrom in Africa’s history.

“I will do whatever he asks,” said one supporter, 50-year-old Polycarp Orinda, a resident of Kibera slums.

“I will go to the streets if he wants us to go there.” – AFP

These people have no hope. Don’t judge them for blindly supporting the only person selling them hope. If you’ve got hope, own your privilege but don’t judge and favour favour the killing of the less privileged.
Brilliant minds are fading away in these slums.
Its fucked up coz they’ve got no friends/ relatives in high positions.

“There is also a need to protect those common areas, visual landmarks and urban landscapes which increase our sense of belonging, of rootedness, of ‘feeling at home’ within a city which includes us and brings us together.”

The African capital city looks like any other in the world, with all the edifices of power and wealth—extravagant presidential mansions, resplendent parliament buildings, ornate courthouses and a skyscraper or two. But its concrete solidity is deceptive.

If it were to vanish in an instant, society would not lose much. It has no treasure troves of art and artefacts, or architectural heritage like the Forbidden City, the Taj Mahal and the Sydney Opera House, and cultural life like Broadway or the Rio Carnival which are woven into our identity. In Nairobi what else brings people together other than that K’Ogalo mascot the Tom Mboya statue? That amusement PARK they call the Parliament? Or the Jevanjee smoking zone perhaps. Or Uhuru Park ?
Wangari Maathai was beaten up and her dreadlocks cut through pulling coz she stood against those sick heads who wanted to turn Uhuru Park into some Prime Real Estate.

The vast majority of the African city’s residents have no stake, no property and perhaps most importantly, no social status.

Long ago, Nairobi used to be dismissed in travel brochures as a go-go city without a soul. Well that was better.
Nairobi is now the garbage city in the sun.
It is now filled with thieves, rogue matatus, smoke and slums upon slums, Chakula imelala ya Spur, broke reckless teens, hopeless debauchery leading to 25 and over clubs. Its a hopeless mess.

Oh, I forgot, and street children have quadrupled. Its like Kidero poured them there. (Thank God he’s out btw.)

They accost you on Kenyatta Avenue, the city’s premier boulevard that cuts through the middle of the city. They play hide and seek along Mama Ngina Street. Mama Ngina Street was once the cleanest, best-organised human-friendly street in the city.

Pope Francis says

“We were not meant to be inundated by cement, asphalt, glass and metal, and deprived of physical contact with nature.”

Mahn I couldn’t agree more

The Penalties of Urban living in the 21st Century

Early Stages of Madness

The urban dweller, unlike his country counterpart, is subjected to constant and very fast changes of the physical environment. Obviously the body, especially the brain, has to adjust to these changes as fast as they occur in order to keep the individual in a balanced state of mind. The human brain, being the wonderful organ it is, is normally able to cope with these changes for a whole lifetime without an individual showing any major change in his state of mind.
Independent tests on 10000 dead adult urban dwellers and on the same number of country dweller show, however, distinct, signs of wear and tear on the brain tissues which, had the individual lived to a certain age could have resulted in total madness. There is, however a pronounced absence of these signs in the country dweller.

Every so called skate zone/ skate park is crowded asf.
You can’t skate in Kasa if you’re not part of a crew/ gang. You either learn their handshakes/ gang signs or bounce to Panari and skate with the rich kids. Even worse, pay fare to That skatepark behind Nairobi School (Shangilia Skatepark). Or if you’ve got brass bollocks and no brains go skate on Muindi Mbingu Street then we’ll pay for your kanjo fine or you get knocked by a matatu. Mahn fuck Nairobi. In Naks I can skate anywhere. Wherever whenever I want to.

Nakuru though. We built this town. Planned it, Even though Moi heavily interfered with Nakuru Politics, at least the town has a soul. It is super lit as far as I am concerned. Town organization, specific matatu zones, less cartels, specific street kids zones, More ass, booty to look at, less snobbery, you can trust absolutely anyone in Nakuru, less thugs… Zero thugs, healthy rich-poor balance, organized slums. More chill spots.

“We were not meant to be inundated by cement, asphalt, glass and metal, and deprived of physical contact with nature.”

Nakuru niggas are running out of stuff to diss Nairobi with coz we recently started living in a glass house.. Throwing stones wouldn’t be a good idea.

Since late last year, Northern Nakuru was gripped with what is the biggest Mosquito infestation in Nakuru history.
The mosquitoes were so vicious and they came in millions you’d think Nakuru was Kisumu.

The sophisticated 21st century mosquito. Mosquitoes not native to a land tend to be the most ferocious. The Nakuru mosquitoes for instance. Kenya’s once transition safe heaven now dangerously infested by these nuisance insects. Hazard recipe.

Let’s say there was a plasmodium epidemic.. 90 % of the kids not sleeping under nets would die.

Mosquitoes are a human reflection

They ingest on our DNA

I fucking hate mosquitoes. I mean, I know I am delicious, but I don’t give out free samples

👊 I am always thinking who and why this blood sucking creatures exist and for what purpose 😉

From where i am sitting, the mosquito epidemic could only be due to climate change.

The real climate change is happening in Nakuru.
From 2004 – 2010 it was steady but from 2010 – 2017 it has become rapid.

I have witnessed close to 40% of the outer town Nakuru forest population get lost. And the indifference to it sucks.

In Nakuru, the planting season has drastically shifted from February to April. Rainfall dependent farmers now begin planting in April, let that sink in. Next, farmers will begin planting in August. And it ain’t funny.

The only town left with sane & better weather is Eldoret. So it wins. It wins in everything apart from swag. The only major Kenyan town with no swag.
But a better climate is better than swag.

Climate change sucks mahn Mosquitoes in Nakuru. Nakuru of all places who would’ve ever thought

Now Eldoret is cooler than Nakuru, literally.

All these things are caused by institutionalized greed.

“Corrupted behavior is directly related to environmental deterioration.” – Francis

The root cause is quitting the laws of nature and assuming the laws of man.
They overbuilt, put nature to the test. If you’re in tune with nature like the Hopis, the balance of life, the harmony of nature, if you understand that, you don’t overbuild, you don’t do all these moron stuff. Its a symphony, everybody is in the band.

Francis asks “what the commandment ‘Thou shall not kill’ means when ‘twenty percent of the world’s population consumes resources at a rate that robs the poor nations and future generations of what they need to survive.'”

Yet climate change poses an existential threat to us in Africa. Although the continent produces two per cent of the annual greenhouse gas emissions, it is expected to bear the brunt of the negative effects of climate change and global warming. 

“The time has come to accept decreased growth in some parts of the world, in order to provide resources for other places to experience healthy growth.”

And as the French say, noblesse oblige. Those in a position of privilege must accept the responsibility that comes with that privilege. 

China, the world’s biggest polluter, what a sleazy definition. Its like that guy who persistently farts in class. Magnanimously ignominious to be precise.

America the second-largest polluter in the world, it has, over the years, emitted more planet-warming carbon dioxide than any other country. Their religion is capitalism. A focus on profit.

“Where profits alone count, there can be no thinking about the rhythms of nature, its phases of decay and regeneration, or the complexity of ecosystems which may be gravely upset by human intervention.”

“Whenever these questions are raised, some react by accusing others of irrationally attempting to stand in the way of progress and human development.”

There is no solution that wouldn’t plunge us back into 1850s living standards and vastly cripple our economy.

When one man is happy, another man is sad, as The Manhattans sang in the famous 1973 golden oldie album, There’s No Me Without You.

“Many things have to change course, but it is we human beings above all who need to change. We lack an awareness of our common origin, of our mutual belonging, and of a future to be shared with everyone. This basic awareness would enable the development of new convictions, attitudes and forms of life. A great cultural, spiritual and educational challenge stands before us, and it will demand that we set out on the path of renewal.”

“In the absence of objective truths or sound principles other than the satisfaction our own desires and immediate needs that limits can be placed on human trafficking, organized crime, the drug trade, commerce in blood diamonds and the fur of endangered species?”

one can also hear some yawns in the audience. Sorry I tricked you into reading this long ass post.

To sum all this shit up I think what the Pope is Tryna tell us is to live by the Golden Rule.

image

The existence of pain, death, thought, and emotion solidify the Golden Rule as primary, and all others as mere commentary.
If you don’t live by the Golden Rule you’re full of shit; The Lord sees through bullshit.

It would be so unfair for God to interfere with human life..

Blessings are there .. In other words they are known as karma.. But God doesn’t interfere with human life.

We are the shapers of our own reality. Ever since Jesus, The days of God meddling came to an end.

As Eccentric as a Banker using the abacus Pt 3

As Eccentric as the Maasai: The most dangerous African tribe.

The Maasai are/ have been The most whimsical and badass people on Kenyan soil. Formerly they were by far the most powerful native race in East Africa, and when on the war-path were the terror of the whole country from the furthest limits of Uganda to Mombasa itself.

Wachana na hii maasai ya ngwashe.. Am talking about a real ndawuo who has distorted the lobe of his ear by stretching it until it hangs down quite five or six inches. The incorrigible jamaa who wears a shuka with nothing inside but large crusty balls.

Balls hanging naked beneath their shukas. As they went to kill lions in the forest the lions would know of their approach not by smelling their scents from afar but by the sound of steel. Two round balls of steel hitting each other as they walked. They had no boxers to hold them you see, they wouldn’t fit mahn.

The Maasai warriors of 130 years ago were so Savage that if you have their DNA right now you should be a national treasure.

image
Roberto Galdino's Sci-fi morans

You should see the menacing pictures of the Maasai warriors ; the Moran at war. They certainly look very ferocious in their weird-looking headdress when on the warpath. If I was the enemy I would just surrender than face these aberrant sons of Maa. These Maasai people from 130 years ago were very dangerous. That’s even an understatement. If the Maasai were the Ndwandwe it would only take 200 of them to completely obliterate an entire 1000 man Zulu army to waste. In a parallel universe the Maasai would have whooped Shaka Zulu’s ass very badly.
Their society never condoned traffic of human beings, and outsiders looking for people to enslave avoided the Maasai due to this; their reputation. They stood against slavery which means that their D.N.A is not scattered somewhere in America or the Caribbean. It is also prudent to point out that the British railway never passed through Maasai land. Your reputation could really save you lots.

21st century Maasai Moran

I saw a motion picture made by anthropological film-maker Jean Claude Luyat of the Maasai warriors of Africa at war. The Maasai stood on a dusty plain about the size of a highschool football field, facing off in a loosely organized mass. Occasionally, a warrior would hurl a spear or a stone. It seldom hit anyone. Yet killing was definitely the business of the day.
Said Luyat, all he could think of as he filmed was the army of the Greeks on the dusty plain outside the walls of Troy. The Homeric heroes, Luyat was certain, must have made war very much like this.

Before the advent of British rule,  sudden raids were constantly being made by them on the weaker tribes in the country; and when a kraal was captured all the male defenders-were instantly killed with the spear, while the women were put to death during the night with clubs. The Maasai, indeed, never made slaves or took prisoners, and it was their proud boast that where a party of elmorani had passed, nothing of any kind was left alive. The object of these raids was, of course, to capture live stock, for the Maasai are not an agricultural people and their wealth consists entirely in their herds of cattle, sheep and goats. But not all raids were for capturing livestock. Some were somewhat either hedonistic expeditions or to affirm the reputation of their brutality.

The most famous one was In 1852 when a meteorite fell on the Duruma settlements. There was a report of a concentration of 800 Maasai warriors on the move in what is now Kenya. In 1857, after having depopulated the “Wakuafi wilderness” in what is now southeastern Kenya, Maasai warriors threatened Mombasa on the Kenyan coast. The lores of what happened then are harrowing to the extent movie like.

Here’s What happened, In 1856, three years after the meteorite fell among the Duruma, disaster struck. Disaster’s name, in this case, were troops of Maasai morans from Tsavo, famous for their ferocity and skills in war.
Like Vikings sacking the temples of England, the Maasai raided the Duruma villages laying waste to anything on their path. Their intentions were unknown; for they never claimed the stone or occupied the land. Luckily, someone sneaked the stone out of the village during the raid.
The Maasai raiding party pushed farther to the City of Mombasa where they encountered Baluchi Arab soldiers garrisoned in the area. Sayyid Said, the Sultan of Zanzibar had ordered his soldiers to guard the city after a long bloody power feud with the Mazrui family. Now, he faced a new enemy – the marauding Maasai. The encounter led to a battle in which the Baluchi soldiers ended-up taking refuge at Fort Jesus.
The bloodthirsty army moved South of Mombasa to the Port town of Vanga. Nothing is known about what provoked the Maasai – a rampage followed that led to the complete destruction of the town of Vanga. The murderous rage came to a halt when the City of Mombasa developed an alert system which was sounded when Maasai morans were spotted conducting reconnaissance missions. The effects of this Maasai rampage are still visible in Vanga. These are the stories Swahili mothers tell perhaps enforcing gallantry in their children. Along with the smell of slavery, broken promises, Portugal and Vasco Da Gama’s piss there are Maasai footprints. Leaving impact Hundreds of kilometres from your homeland still felt more than a hundred years later is a scenario summed up by the word eccentric.

The Maasai women actually have the spirit of the Serengeti lions in them. Those resilient women who birthed and nursed warriors and ducked at what nature threw at them or changed it into an opportunity are the true warriors. As eccentric as the Serengeti lions. If you knew how enduring the Serengeti lion is, how serious the Serengeti Park is yet the lion still manages to have among the most beautiful manes you would appreciate the comparison. The remnant of the tribe, more especially the men, are still a fine, lithe, clean-limbed people perhaps the inspiration of the joke that if aliens attacked, The Maasai would be the only African tribe left standing. In general, the Maasai are an upright and honourable savage race and it is a pity that their eccentric cultures are gradually getting corrupted by modernization.

As Eccentric as Marijuana

I said no to drugs once. I looked at a blunt right in the face and, like a loving but firm father, I said, “No.” I was really high. You just can’t tell people to stop smoking marijuana. Come on Its marijuana for fucks sake. Sage’s cousin. You need to preach salvation through acceptance. There are drugs then there is marijuana.. The eccentric drug. One that pseudoscientists who have never had a taste of claim to know what it does to the body. Well fuck the pseudoscientists. That sounds like something a hippie would say.

People keep asking me what do I think of weed. I think its eccentric. Am not here to say whether it’s right or wrong that’s a choice you have to make but, I’ll share the unique perspective.

Drugs are wonderful when you try them first. They are not around for all these millenias for no reason.

First time, mostly pleasure but a little pain, maybe a cough
But as you increase and keep using, the pleasure part decreases and the pain part, the price you pay increases until the balance is completely the other way and there’s almost all pain and there is hardly any pleasure.

The thing you have to learn is use them judiciously. There is something called judicious use of marijuana. You’re welcome. Once a month, that would be frequent because where marijuana is concerned, it does seem to open a window for you, seems to broaden the vistas at first and whether you like it or not it changes your values, doors of perception, you see things differently. It deconditions the brain. Marijuana gives and takes. This is the only dangerous thing about it. If it only gave well and good. But it takes too and that’s dangerous considering what it takes. It takes away our teachings from experiences. This is called deconditioning. The mind decolonizing itself from old thoughts. It is a good thing because it offers you a reset button. This is something the mind cannot achieve on its own. How can you know more if you already know too much. Empty your cup first. Experiences are very faulty because of the lessons they give us. Ever heard of the aphorism: Life is short, art long, opportunity fleeting, experience deceptive, judgement difficult. Consciousness is just the “motion of experience”. That is all. Our choice is to either to resist its motion or flow with it. The illiterates of the 21st century won’t be those who can’t read or write but those who are unable to unlearn to learn.. Through neuroplasticity, our brain is changing based on experience and through epigenetics, our DNA is changing based on our environment and what we are intaking and that’s why when we are smoking marijuana, you start embodying the same vibrational frequency as the plant which is of unity, peace, serenity, letting go. Hold on to your precious image or let it all go to discover how far you can truly go. The universe wants to show you more.

image

It now becomes dangerous when you constantly decondition your brain, you know smoke a blunt everyday. It could lead to depersonalization. Individuals who experience depersonalization feel divorced from their own personal self by sensing their body sensations, feelings, emotions, behaviors etc. as not belonging to the same person or identity.

This is why adolescents/ teenagers/ pubescents/ shouldn’t smoke marijuana. There is something profound about pubescents – reeking with overflowing magnificence and individuality. The innocence of wanting to learn. These are preconditioned minds. A preconditioned mind does not need deconditioning. Dear teenager, you need not lose your identity. Your brain is too fickle to handle marijuana. And quit complaining about life, you have only felt the tip of its dick.

At this point we all clear that weed is for adults. You know the person outside his parent’s bubble. But here’s the catch, marijuana is not for all adults.

Ask yourself, are you a vibrational match to this plant you are using? Not all drugs are for everyone. If you are resonating on the same frequency as the plant, then its a good to go. But if your frequency is lower, there is no enough resonance, if its higher, there is no enough resonance.

There was a reason why the ancient times for instance ancient alchemy Egypt you had people taking the Lotus flower to see other worlds, but it was only a few in the mystery schools and priesthood. It wasn’t meant for everyone because you have to be prepared.

According to me, in this modern world, people who are sure to be at par with Marijuana’s frequency are the artists/ hippies/ writers/ priests/ the thinkers, woke deep like waters and the fake deep too. This is because they won’t let the high go to waste.
Most of the creativity comes from being wacky. Am sure there is a lot of truth in that as far as being plain old wacky. By giving up the drugs you lose a bit of the genius. The rest of the people using marijuana for pleasure are doing it for the wrong purposes. If you use weed for fun it’ll catch up with you and bite your ass very hard you won’t like it. It will start using you. It will use you until you look like it. Have you ever seen someone who looks like a plant? The stereotypical pothead with blood shot eyes and shaggy hair with a scruffy beard. Its a shame they give a bad name to this plant. Its a shame that people like Cheech and Chong are the weed icons. Our 21st century weed icons. If it is working for you, well, I’m happy for you. To each his/her own.

Not to sound obnoxious but I think human beings were actually made for the ingestion of marijuana. I couldn’t believe it till I actually saw it with my two pupils. Not really seeing but you know.

The homo sapiens have a gene called a cannabinoid receptor located primarily in their Central & Peripheral Nervous Systems. The Cannabinoid receptor is activated by cannabinoids, generated naturally inside the body (endocannabinoids) or introduced into the body as cannabis.

The most notable cannabinoid is the phytocannabinoid tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), the primary psychoactive compound in cannabis. THC produces the effects associated with cannabis by binding to the cannabinoid receptors in the brain. This brain, the human brain has more cannabinoid receptors than any other G protein-coupled receptor (GPCR) type. You still think am tripping.

The question that dogs you like Medusa’s face is Why do we have cannabinoid receptors in our minds. Were our minds made for marijuana usage? This is not one of those vagaries of nature and vicissitudes of fate.

After the discovery of the first cannabinoid receptor in 1988, scientists began searching for an endogenous ligand for the receptor. And they found them. At present, there are five recognized cannabinoids produced endogenously throughout the body:  (anandamide), (2-AG), (noladin ether), virodhamine, as well as the recently discovered (NADA). Five still lacks the clout. Marijuana has 113 cannabinoids compared to human being’s five. THC, CBD, CBN, CBC, CBG and over 113 other molecules make up the phytocannabinoid family.

You probably think that these are just selfish hypotheses put forth by a pothead who wants other people to be potheads like him but they are not.

As I said earlier, the body produces 5 cannabinoids, however one of them has a pharmacology similar to THC and is about as potent as THC. Its called andanamide. Andanamide mimics the actions of THC to the point that you actually come to the conclusion that the body produces its own THC. Fanning the fire more, it is actually found in nearly all tissues in human beings.
Another funny thing, it is found in chocolate. Considering its name being derived from the Sanskrit word bliss, thus the reason chocolate makes you happy. Tripper tripper eeh. Touché

Another one of God’s innuendos: Cannabis maintains a CBD to THC ratio that ensures safety to humans using it. CBD may show antipsychotic and neuroprotective properties, acting as an antagonists to some of the effects of THC. Selective breeding by growers in the USA dramatically lowered the CBD content of cannabis; their customers preferred varietals that were more mind-altering due to a higher THC, lower CBD content. I’ve never heard of something so stupid in my life.

image

A high THC to CBD ratio produces a higher incidence of psychological effects. Research has shown that CBD can safely prevent psychosis in general, Don’t just ride the legalization wave ride it wisely.

Still in the judicious use bracket if you really must smoke pot just avoid two things: smoke and weed eatables cookies – cake. There is something called a vaporizor.

image
Get yourself this fat ass motherfucker at gpen.com and you good. Thin one available too whatever floats your boat

You want to avoid dark dry lips, chest problems, cottonmouth or bloodshot eyes, get yourself a vaporizer (e-cigarette).
Vaporizing is more efficient than smoking, because approximately 30% of THC in marijuana or hashish blunts is destroyed by pyrolysis during smoking.

image

The vaporizer instead, heats the weed causing the active ingredients to evaporate into a vapor without burning the plant material. Combustion products are not present when using a vaporizer, No smoke is produced. You don’t need smoke. Say no to smoke because its very dangerous.
Cannabinoids are not mutagenic according to the Ames test but over fifty known carcinogens have been identified in cannabis smoke, including; nitrosamines, reactive aldehydes, and polycylic hydrocarbons, including benz[a]pyrene.

With that sort of judicious use, there is some value in it.

Most of the things we use, don’t let you leave them alone, they don’t, pot does, thank goodness for that.

As Eccentric as the Individual

I think a lot of people have lost respect for the individual, you know, the individual, the person who doesn’t conform. – Erykah Badu
                            ⊕⊕⊕

Being.

Outside of my family, groups repel me, because for the sake of group thought, they kill individuality, that wonderful, human oneness. Am wide open to individuals, fine with individuals, individuals are just great, every individual’s edifice gives you something, whether its a blank wall or an infinite regressive barbershop nerds, just as fascinating.
People are wonderful one at a time, each one of them has an entire hologram of the universe somewhere within them. But as soon as individuals begin to clump, as soon as they begin to clot, they change, and the larger the group, the more toxic, the more of your beauty as an individual you have to surrender for the sake of group thought, and when you suspend your individual beauty you also give up a lot of your humanity. You will do things in the name of the group that you would never do on your own; drinking/ injuring/ drugs are all part of it because you have lost your identity; because you now owe your allegiance to this thing that’s bigger and that’s beyond you.

A study by social psychologist Bryan Mullen shows that the larger the lynch mob the more brutal the lynching. Freud declares that groups are “impulsive, changeable and irritable.” Those caught up within them he asserts, can become infantile slaves to emotion. The tendency to doubt and reason is broken down when we join a group. The only place where you are not allowed to be an individual is the millitary. All am saying is stay away from from anything that suppresses your individuality.

Make your life an ongoing process of being who you are, at your deepest, most easeful levels of being. Everything other than this process is secondary.

i like people who have a sense of individuality. i love expression and anything awkward and imperfect, because that’s natural & that’s real..
Not every flower can say love, but a
rose can. Not every plant survives a
thirst, but a cactus can. Not every
retard can read, but look at you go
little buddy! I don’t care if you
lick windows, or screw farm animals.
You hang in there cupcake, because
you’re fucking eccentric, and
you’re an individual Look at you smiling at your phone you crayon eating motherfucker.

Promote what you love instead of bashing what you hate. Bashing what you hate in a person will be akin to telling them not to be themselves. Telling them to suspend their individuality for you..

Individualism is a personal credo of great importance. I, for one, am a passionate believer in it. But to scientists, it has been a chimera leading them down a dead end path. Specifically, individualism has reared its head in science in the form of a simple proposition. If a piece of psychology ……… A tooth, a claw, an opposable thumb, or the neural circuit underlying an instinct has emerged from the evolutionary process, it has triumphed for a simple reason… It has helped the individual survive. More specifically, the psychological device has proven useful in the survival of a long line of individuals, each of whom maintained a competitive edge by virtue of the piece of biological equipment in question.

Leonardo da Vinci, Charlemagne, Casanova, Dedan kimathi, Kanye West, Napoleon, Constantine The Great, Opany Leonard and so on. Blow your own trumpet modesty is for suckers.

This psychological device is the ego.

Your ego is essentially a child who is very afraid of death. And sees everything in life as a serious threat. Even though the fear of death is a weakness in itself you need an ego to be an individual. An ego is not bad. it’s just a filter to narrow from the collective to the individual level. Thy ego will help you hold on to your individualism.

With the abolition of private property, then, we shall have true, beautiful, healthy Individualism. Nobody will waste his life in accumulating things, and the symbols for things. One will live. To live is the rarest thing in the world. Most people exist, that is all.

Oscar Wilde, The Soul of Man under Socialism, 1891

As Eccentric as THE SOUL: Death Vs Love

The soul is eccentric because nobody knows where it is. Your soul could be in your blood// heart// brain// gut or balls. Balls are never debatable. .

image
Balls are never debatable

The body was created to serve the spirit. The Spirit/soul was not created to serve the body. Eccentricity is the fine line between this dichotomy. It is the spirit like manifestations on the body.
The soul is invisible but eccentricity in human beings is the closest we ever get to seeing a soul.
Some souls are noble, others shallow, deep while others are weightless, unfed, suppressed. Suppressed individualism is like a body without a spirit.

This is a very dangerous situation because The soul is immortal which is akin to the Immortality of man. Not merely survival of spirits, but of one’s identity across incarnations. i’ve come to realize that once something is created, it never really ends. everything begins, & just keeps evolving into something else.

Every single soul is beautiful beyond measure because The soul is man’s spiritual bridge between his experience of the body, the physical world around him, and of God. Man’s being is an individualisation of the being of God.

Each man is a deity and can attain his power to the degree of his ability to consciously realize himself as such.

The biblical claim that “Man is made in the likeness of God,” is substantiated by the fact that there are powers which are the the sources of all events and things in the world and are shared by both God and man. The latter of course expresses these powers to a much lesser degree.

As I said earlier, God and man, like the ocean and a drop of water, have the same creative qualities (forces) but differ quantitatively in the expression of these qualities.

When we pray we speak to our souls because we have God in us. When We are told to use our talents for the glory of God it is for the God in us. God breathed his spirit into us and gave us life. So we all have God in us.

“To worship a God other than your Self is to worship a gawd inferior to your Self.”

I subscribe to the notion “The more I know self, the more I know God.”

If YOU are a true god then who do you need protection from? You need protection from LOVE. love of the vessel// the body// the flesh.

Evil comes disguised as love because it alters the dichotomy between soul and body. Love becomes evil when humans love the body more than the soul. It is evil because the flesh is an illusion. It Blurs the fact that you have something larger than life .  The flesh will rot one day; but its driving force the essense of life the soul is immortal. It is what you need to love more. This is why the soul is addressed in third person.

Only if you are well grounded in that which is larger than this life will you be able to play life with humor, knowing that each task is but a mirage of necessity.

The soul is death seeking in nature that’s why it seeks love.

I do not resonate with the concept of That food for the soul bullshit. I’ll redefine in every way what love is.
Love is death.

Heart had once been, blood’s naïve pump
Not the sacrosanct shrine, love made of it
Why bards made a world, of this mortal lump
And love, eternal sin, we all commit
Forsake yourself, for the sake of that dream!
Which never is ours, never ever, had been
Why we treasure a pain, for a love to redeem
And suckle that venom, so hard to wean
Oh! That binding need, cupid’s sinful seed
Which costs a soul, heart’s hegemony
Who’s vanquished whom, in this war decreed?
Betwixt yearning selves, so spent in spree!
Why’s love’s utopia built, on grace’s grave?
Why blooms a haunting love, on the blood of troy?
Why on heart’s debris, love’s path we pave?
Why love’s a willing, pain’s decoy, A Devil’s Ploy!

Only a human mind can invent something as insipid as love. How can something perceptible be so many things like that. That’s what makes love eccentric.

Love is a ploy a sort of curse put here to make you love life and in turn fear death. The gods hide the beauty of death by using love so that we endure life. Men go to far greater lengths to avoid what they fear than to obtain what they desire.

They fear death and desire love. Which is the wrong way to live.

On a different plane though love becomes conviction. Conviction is the greatest gift which makes love great too.
Love is great because it is the highest form of actually leaving your essense on something. Sharing love is going all the way. Giving your soul to another soul. Whichever way you do it. Sex// making out// dancing// kissing// hugging. So long as it was love shared. You, leaving your soul on another soul, actually fusing with another soul is invigorating. Sex ain’t shit until it’s with someone you’re in love with. And then, sex is everything you can’t explain.

image

Do not pity the dead. Pity the living. Above all those living without love this is because of two things 1. The value of life can be measured by how many times your soul has been deeply stirred ~ Love will do most of the stirring.
2. Whiskey songs are written by fools who wasted love.
Held hate and misery near
Without its presence, our mind and body literally switch on an arsenal of interior devices for self demolition.

There is an alchemy of souls. There will be a reason why you meet people. Either you need them to change your life or you’re the one that will change theirs.

Judgement on the value of pain
Pain makes us appreciate pleasure. sharing of Love gives humans pleasure.
We cannot be more sensitive to pleasure without being more sensitive to pain.
I think that love and pain are what maintain the balance between life and death. Death answers to pain & Pain is Love’s reminder. Only great pain is the ultimate liberator of the spirit….I doubt that such pain makes us ‘better’; but I know that it makes us more profound”. Pain is Love & death’s alter ego. Pain is the fine line between love and death.

The gods hide the beauty of death so that we endure life

Grey hair is God’s graffiti. It symbolises a person’s maintenance of the balance between love and pain.  While all fell on the swords of life and turned to dust.. He lived on to get gray hair. Gray hair is a mark of nobility. Death. Death is very noble. It is noble because it is the master of life. Love isn’t.

Death is such a profound event that no one can remain indifferent to it. It jolts one’s consciousness to the eventuality that awaits us.
Marcus Tulius Cicero, the great Roman lawyer, stated that “the life of the dead is placed on the memories of the living. The love you gave in life keeps people alive beyond their time. Anyone who was given love will always live on in another’s heart..

Is there sex after death? I doono but i think Death is one big orgasm.. A release of the soul into the proverbial Rubicon is akin to ejaculation. It has to be intense with pleasure. You wanna see Nirvana but you are afraid of death? If death is the ultimate Nirvana then life is just a parade to death. Nobody really knows what happens after death; maybe just nothingness. Exactly. That’s what makes death eccentric.

A transcultural spiritual revolution which will transform the separate and fragmented cultures of Earth into one vast global and planetary meta-culture in which the unique diversity of every nation, of every peoples, of every tribe, of every person is valued as contributing to the beauty of the whole.

Life’s most persistent and urgent question is “What are you doing for others?” – Martin Luther King Jr.
I have thought hard and the only answer I can arrive at is that future generations of Kenyans will judge ours with our apathy.

image

Each generation must discover its mission, fulfill it or betray it, in relative opacity; I think that as Kenyans, we are betraying our mission here. The country is polarized due to structural issues like tribalism, not personal issues like hate.
However, in a world that has come to celebrate nationalism and supranational cooperation, tribal identity is running out of reasonable justification for its existence.
Everything in Kenya points towards revolution. We need a cultural revolution, economic revolution, political revolution, a whole society unravelling is what we need.
Frantz Fanon, who wrote: “The Future will have no pity for those men (and women) who, possessing the exceptional privilege of being able to speak words of truth to their oppressors, have taken refuge in an attitude of passivity, of mute indifference and sometimes of cold complicity. So I will not keep my mouth shut and let the high go to waste.
In the midst of this hullabaloo, confusions, tension and what nots in Kenya, we should wake up from this civic apathy and grow a flower from these evils in our country.

“Ivory has nothing your own nails do not have” – Richard Branson

April 30th is a day worth seven Hallelujahs. On this day someone will be celebrating his birthday after 18 years of trial and error now transitioning into society a full grown wise boy.

And it is still on this day that Kenya led by President Uhuru Kenyatta and 10 other African Presidents, will set ablaze more than 120 tonnes of ivory and rhino horn. This 10 times what was burnt by President Moi in 1989.

President Daniel Arap Moi sets 12 tonnes of ivory on fire at Nairobi National Park in 1989

A stockpile of ivory tusks will go up in flames in Nairobi at a ceremony expected to attract international celebrities, conservation gurus, and national and business leaders.
This will be the world’s largest stockpile of rhino and elephant horn products ever to be burnt. Mad Props for the steadfast approach of sending a no-nonsense message to the world concerning our wildlife importance and the measures we would go to protect it. The clear message is that this country values the animals more than the price tag the traffickers attach to these items. It also goes to show just how far the country is willing to go to protect its wildlife for posterity.

People have won chess through intimidation, making bold moves and scathing the opponent causing him/her to make blind moves that expose him/her to vulnerability thus a checkmate.
I believe this is what the nation is doing here. 120 tonnes of ivory worth $ 270 million. That’s Kshs 21.6 billion.

Economists would sit all day and blabber that the money injected to the money pool would boost the economy.. But that’s the whole point. A borrowing nation burning the world’s largest most prolific ivory stockpile is a very bold chess move. And there is a lot to gain from it.

There is a very huge importance of tourism to the Kenyan economy. It is banal to even keep repeating the phrases, “Agriculture & Tourism are our biggest foreign exchange earners.”
The money is used for imports, infrastructure and in accumulative repayment of the country’s debts.

While Kenya is borrowing a massive $10 billion from the Chinese for the SGR railway, this is 20% of Kenya’s gross domestic product.
China has become the first country to cross the sh 300 billion mark in exports to Kenya, underlying its growing economic significance in the country.
And you know what the biggest irony is, China is the biggest market for poached ivory. So how are we going to pay them if all they do is take even the little we have?

We are gobbling up loans from Chinese banks whose Asiatic lot has failed to ban ivory trade.
They announced that they would phase out the legal domestic manufacture and sale of ivory products in May 2015. But here’s something.
Last month on March 30th 2016, Kenyan police seized ivory worth sh 6.4 million concealed in a cargo of gemstones at Jomo Kenyatta International Airport in Nairobi. The cargo was in transit from Mozambique to Shanghai. Shanghai is in the U.S or maybe in Brazil? Right?
Naah. Shanghai is in China. Why aren’t there nothings like CITES/ NATO/ UN in these places?
These Chinese faggots are either half blind or their little to no understanding of the English language harbours their empathy to the decry of African nations and the world on an end to Wildlife trade.

Is it a curse to have a source of National wealth as an African nation?

Diamonds in Sierra Leone fuelled the Civil War leading to them being famed as blood Diamonds.
Oil caused strife and the schism of The Sudanese Republic.

The Wildlife Conservation Society has pointed out that the global ivory trade leads to the slaughter of up to 35,000 elephants a year in Africa.

Asian countries are trying to compete with each other for influence in the continent’s fast growing economics economies.
Slots in Ethiopia & Kenya are filled with China. Japan has tried to maintain cordial ties even with leaders who have antagonized Western nations like Zimbabwe’s Mugabe.
Chinese artisans have a glee for ivory like how a fat Kid loves cake despite all these.

Tell 'em

Instead of talks to ban, Let’s burn the ivory because it is the only language the Chinese will understand because English is clearly not working. Preach !!

What a way to mark a birthday.

I am not a Black Artist. I am an Artist- Jean Michel Basquiat | Humbling moments of the Luminaries.

We (The Artists) all know that Jean Michel Basquiat and Andy Warhol had a very tight cordial relationship… The kind of relationship that glows with a deep brotherly bond of men who have been through tough times. Extremely tough times.

image
Warhol X Basquiat

There is some relevant similarity between the two artists; Rejection.
Andy Warhol had a frequent refusal to comment on his work, to speak about himself(confining himself in interviews to responses like “Um,no” and “Um,yes”, and often allowing others to speak for him)- and even the evolution of his pop style. This is traceable to the years when Warhol was first dismissed by the inner circles of the New York art world. Such humbling moments.
He had also suffered rejection before as a child.
In third grade, Warhol had Sydenham’s cholera.. The nervous system disease which is believed to be a complication of Scarlet fever which causes skin pigmentation blotchiness… Of course he became an outcast as a child.

Which doesn’t come as a surprise that when Basquiat met Warhol at a restaurant and presented to him some of his works, Warhol was stunned by Basquiat’s genius and allure. He wasn’t clouded by the race skin color bullshit.
Try to imagine ->>> Warhol was white and he still faced rejection in the art market.. What of Basquiat a black neo-expressionist ->>> & you know neo-expressionism wasn’t mainstream, people’s tastes were inclined towards fine art & non-radical abstracts.

I guess if Warhol had a Declaroix face/ had a career full of wins and high moments of appraisal only, he would easily dismiss Basquiat on race grounds.
The two artists later collaborated on great works.

Catapult to Greatness through marrying the Arts.
Michelangelo Buonarroti’s soul was a soul great as some ancient prophet’s, full of sublime visions and moral passion. Yet his human personality was pitifully faulty. Arrogant, touchy, harsh of tongue, the youth got his nose broken in a quarrel with an older apprentice. The disfigurement lasted for life and went deeper than his face. For he who worshipped beauty now thought himself repulsive. Of medium height, with overdeveloped shoulders, he may not have been a handsome young man, but the years were to make unforgettable the wrinkled face; the bitter, generous mouth; the hazel eyes filled with an almost Biblical sorrow and love.
He was baeless & profoundly in his old days had an unsatisfied desire at the years he did not live to enjoy. He had worn himself out with struggle over colossal tasks such as painting the Sistine Chapel ceiling & more than a dozen of lifesize marble sculptures.

Marrying himself to art almost a hermit.
Art celibacy indeed.
But was it worth it?
Look at his piquant greatness and vast airy climax of power of his works and you will surely question if anything on earth could hold it.

Sweating The Technique : Growing real balls & cutting off blue ones.

Disclaimer: I ain’t writing for the teen in the volatile Ghetto society exposed to lewdness firsthand with wolves..  No offense but this is an article for kids from the high society…  In sub Saharan Africa.. Living in an ambience of good mannered amoral people. The parentals are reserved affluents/ middle income who invest their shiniest dimes in their children’s education.
Very few of these parents tackle the sex talk with their pubescent kids head on with no sweeping under the carpet.
The remaining larger percentage are either “clichéd” too busy or rather shy away and dismiss the matter as irrelevant.
Ill Perks on the boy who lacked elder siblings.. The kid cannot even put on a condom let alone get into a girl’s pants.
His female counterpart however is the confident spoilt daddy’s little girl..  I guess you’ve come along those girls in supermarket hallways… Extreme girlish demeanor is what I’d call ’em.
A wink from a well brought up guy like me and the girl is blushing and borderline getting wet. Like the gentleman I am I let it slide. Who else will.. She is going to give up her virginity to a “hot” stranger one day..  Why?  Because the boys from her hood are fucking pussies.
There is a misperception that boys need not to be monitored. The fathers dot on their daughters like precious stones.. Forgetting to give their sons what they need most.. ‘What men talk with men.’

Male Teens playing Basketball

The kid spending overly hours in the Basketball court ain’t leisure… He is getting half truths from his fellow immature jerking friends.
A survey showed that in sub-Saharan Africa, mothers are more concerned about the girls’ whereabouts, especially in the evenings, than they are about the boys.”

In a parental vacuum, drug and alcohol abuse becomes rampant. Peer pressure holds sway, leading to impaired thinking. Rampant cases of violence against girls and women, including rape, are signs of mentally ill boys.

The study concludes that, “over-focus on the girl child through selective programmes and interventions [is] pushing the boy to lose confidence and develop low self-esteem,” hence, society ignores boys’ socialisation at its own peril.

GOD GAVE MAN ROOM FOR IMPROVEMENTS: A Pundit’s Sentiments.

Condoms have been used for at least 400 years.
That small pocket on your Jeans was made for condoms.

image

Go ask your mother.. Oops your mother never used a condom.. Go ask your father/ look at his old abercombie & flitch jeans.. The pocket was a lil bit smaller but it’s now big in modern jeans.. I guess natural selection took play and girths and sizes of junk increased, so the pockets had to be enlarged to contain the XXL condoms for guys like me.

The “first” condom was made from animal sheath. In order to use it one had to soak it in milk. All that trouble to avoid pregnancy and syphilis.. It survived to modern vulcanized latex.. Why then should that fucker catch AIDS in sexcapades with floozies.. Or those teenagers impregnating each other.. 2 to tango.. While at least shrewdness would have considered rushing to a Chemist and stashing your rubber catalogue.. Those horny bastards.. Always use a condom bruh.. They even went further in creating a pocket on your denims so that you wouldn’t place it in the back pocket and ruin it by sitting on it..
On a serious note though, Wrap it Up!!!

Art be like: I told you so
Art is that quiet beggar who sits at the far end of the city at night, Blind but knows all the nightly nefarious evils & cruelty of the city but people would easily dismiss his voice, “What does a blind beggar know.”
The owl is the only nocturnal animal that observes from above, perching at the highest branch in the forest’s night.. It saw the hyena feed on the squirrel’s offspring. It is the only thing that knows the forest night’s secrets, but the wisest bird deemed as bad luck.
This is art. Humanity’s gift often taken for granted.
If you told those ancient kings that something taller than their fortified castles would be built on this earth.. Prolly an argument would ensue then beheading on treason grounds.
The growth of cities, the conceptualization of architecture and pro-anti institutionalisation of art is a mirroring of art always held at Utopian valor by mankind. MUAs/ Make up is art/ Food porn is art/ architecture is art/ fashion. Without art we are nothing.

The reaction against institutionalization of art is whimsical ->>>>> This is what made it so highly esteemable. But that’s another story.

For Beauty?

Clamped woman's nipple

Come on people, there’s no room for being conservative while writing.
Just why did God create man with a nipple??? Can someone please shed some light on this phenomenon.
Freaky encyclopaedic scientists where ya at? Or are they busy creating silicone implants for the gay people…
We living in a world where homos are no longer closeted ->>> It became acceptable..then legal; If laws could oblige The Chinese people to that “One Child Policy”, who knows..homosexuality being compulsory to some groups of people in the future, well..I mean.. You don’t argue with the law.

So then God put this nipple on man as an exploitable niche.

The little science/ history I know tells me that man has evolved->>> brain size/ posture e.t.c, but in no instance/ potent possibility of female functions shifting to the male counterpart. So the ruling out of the hypotheses ->>

“Women will fail in breastfeeding/ will get busy/ tired & shift roles of carrying the big chest with two round soft tissue protuberances to the men”..

. The ruling out of this hypotheses is definitely an option. As absurd as it may sound.

Someone told me this fact but I ain’t sure bout it

Men have nipples because everyone is a female until the Y chromosome kicks in. You were all girl embryos.

Why go through all that trouble

What ifs
What if societies in future generations get liberal/ feminist ideologies pay off & parental roles… It becomes an option of who carries the breast among the two spouses?? You get whipped to the point of choosing augmentation.

Don’t mind me though I am the maddest and crudest of philosophers.

            SO
No possibility that God had the idea of Gay men while creating man
No hormonal surgery to make a man’s breast big in imitation of the females’
No weird natural evolution of future men growing breasts..

So why did He put two nipples on my chiselled chest??

Utility Comfort zone that is the Modern age.
Early man had less to worry about, the world was young, no history/ no memorable events…., With the continual knowledge discovery, man’s desire to record this information for future generations partly caused the brain to increase in size. From early primates to hominids and finally to Homo sapiens, the human brain has continued to grow. The volume of the human brain has increased as humans have evolved, starting from about 600 cm3 in Homo habilis up to 1600 cm3 in Homo neanderthalensis, which was the hominid with the biggest brain size.
But this brain growth couldn’t have gone past what the body could hold. The increase in brain size stopped with neanderthals. Since then, the average brain size has been shrinking over the past 28,000 years.

In spite of significant changes in social capacity, there has been very little change in brain size from Neanderthals to the present day. The notion “As large as you need and as small as you can” has been used to summarize the opposite evolutionary constraints on human brain size.

What was employed to replace the brain’s storage purpose?

Then came Libraries.. Cuneiform scripts/ hieroglyphs/ clay & stone tablets of Nineveh..

“]image

But if The Library of Alexandria, one of the largest and most significant libraries of the ancient world got burned down, thus resulting in the loss of many scrolls and books, a symbol of “knowledge and culture destroyed” , there had to be something concrete to hold information indestructible.. A few algorithms & cloud storage and you have Databases of knowledge on the internet. & Bam problem solved.. Let our heads get smaller.

Afro modernism Art Compass: Bold Photographs, Rich Culture, Black #Ebony . Not Generic and Not Institutionalized.

Am speaking to the African youth who don’t even know what Capitalism/ Communism is. “Usijali Ndugu”. No need to worry bruh… None of that shit matters to us anyway… A bunch of foreign ideologies forced down our throats. But I would weep in my grave for a generation of Africans that failed to uphold their worth through art… That is Afro-modernism. I hate -isms but this more of a movement/ a compilation of similar artworks -Ebony Black/ Bold/ Beautiful/ African/ Beautiful just fits into a common mainframe of Afro-modernism.

This Afro-modernism is self-referential- black/ swarthiness being a dominant theme all over this form of art ->> as if beckoning & speaking to you from a “make art not war” vantage point.
Other forms of modernist art such as Postmodernism is visionary crap.. It is like trying to cross a bridge not even reached.
Afro-modernism here reeks of Africa.->> It crept in to salvage the African essence now slowly fading away to modernism.

ADORNED CAPTURED STILLNESS:- An Ode.
Multi-cultural adorning of fleeting black exotic forms of picture folklore. An archive of tales captured in one photograph. It is fresh.. Authentic.. Fresh. It takes pride of place and it is clearly in a class of its own to be celebrated perhaps as one of the best forms of art. Its exotic nature has had a very large influence on other foreign art.
Beauty blurs the line between what society has deemed as fact and fiction.

Selfies are corrupted, non-cultured and unprofessional.
Studio works- 30 filters employed/edited happiness.
Afro-modernism ->> The photographer’s lens captures the idealistic epitomes of an African, man, woman and society.
Dominant male made of black
Feminine attributes of an African woman.
The liveliness of what African children do captured in a picture.

          A FOCUS ON PHOTOGRAPHY
This is a niche ->>> Roads untravelled, close to everything in Africa is photograph worthy while less of it is documented in photographs.
Visual accounts of African Culture/ Society/ People continue to slay and being held at an Utopian valor.
Traditional Yoruban Religions & Attributes
African Print
French Africa
Mali People
Zulu corrupted by white culture
Kenyan Maasai people
Kenyan Wild Safaris.
