Who are you? Is this question answerable by you or do you lay yourself bare for the mini-gods of the world to define? Do you admire the person you see in the mirror or do THEY tell you that you are not good enough, smart enough, cute enough and spiritual enough for their liking? Are you not the descendants of greatness, from people who gave the world humanity and civilization? No matter how far we have traveled from Africa to the USA, Europe, and the Caribbeans, we have the obligation to return to our center, to our past for restoration of our oneness with US.
Do you find yourself doubting that this person made in the image of Divine Mind, is somehow a typo…that the beautiful body temple designed for you by the artistic grace of the creator is a mistake…that this human bundle of potentiality is somehow a reject of creation…that you must bow to the whim and will of others? Tending our hearts and to our personal stories means that we open ourselves to the embrace of the MOTHER and endear ourselves to the FATHER.
When you move your mind and sashay your whole body in the perfect way and in the perfecting presence of the HOLY SPIRIT CHINEKE, the definition of YOU becomes yours!
To Know Divine Mind is to act as noble, and if the mirror spits Divine Image back at you…ISE, ISE ISE!
Now ignore the noise of the mini-gods of the world and move in holy boldness…remember who you look like…Enough said!
