In Response To: Each Of Us Must From Time To Time Do a Review (ras marcus)
There are so may different schools of thoughts, as to who is the Creator, as to where he or she is now, or where he or she shall be in the near or distance future. As a result, there are so many religious and denominational groups of people, teaching and preaching, their various doctrines, which came out of the figment of their imaginations, or from their own interpetations of the bible and other books, resulting into the total confusion and division of humanity everywhere upon the face of this earth.
Now each religious group, proclaims that they are right in what they are teaching, and that other groups are wrong. They generally invite people to come and join up with them, so that they can be save from the calamity, which is coming, in the near or distance future, when the Judgement of the Creator shall come, but in most cases, they refuse to correct the present calamity of hunger, nakedness, homelessness, lack of good care for poor people and their children, and caring for people who a very sick and in serious need of help, and who are living under the circumstances mentioned in thuis present life
Singing and praying is not a bad thing, because I myself have done much sacred chanting in my life time, and I do know the kind of feelings that it gives, after sitting or standing there, chanting for several hours, it leaves you with a great internal high, until some other kind of practical reality comes about, and cause a practical
transformation of your attention. When people are chanting about going to Heaven or Holy Mount Zion, their imagination gives them a great internal lift, and as they chant these songs repeatedly, they do imagine themselves, being in Heaven or Zion or Paradise, or the Holiest of the Holiest, that is what singing or chanting can do to you, especially, when the same song or chant is repeated many many times, over and over again.
When people are engaged in these kinds of chanting, they feel so holy and sacred, that they think that they are not capable of dealing with anything which is literal, if some one was to come to make an honest contribution, for the upliftment of the group or people in general, what you may find, is that each of them would think that they or too holy at that momment, to be able to excuse themselves, for a moment from the chanting, to take care of that business, and then return to their chanting duty, and continue in the chant.
Let us just say, that in the middle of the chanting, someone who think that the group was worthy, of a financial contribution of a thousand dollars more or less, to be able to help the needy in that community, let us say that this is the only time, which this person has, to make that contribution, since this person have a plane to catch, so the person make signal to one of the leaders, to come and speak with he or she, what you may find, is that the person who was signaled to come, may become disturbed if money were offered while the chant is in progress, and that person who is making the offer, may have to run along and get his or her plane, because of other committments, without being able to make his or her contribution, although it is very well needed, simply because that person may think, that he or she would have sinned, to have taken some monetary contributions, while the chanting and praying were in progress, although each of them who was engaged in the chanting, had some kind of money in their pockets, while they were engaged in this sacred chanting.
Well, when the chanting was over, they tried to make a collection, to clear expenses, which was created by this chanting assemble, but was bearly able to clear it, the truth is, everyone who was engaged in this chant are poor people, who can bearly afford their dinner, but refused to take an honest contribution, because they think, that if they do, they will lose their chance or chances, of going to Heaven or Zion.
My whole feelings, is that Zion or Heaven, is only existing in the figment of our imagination, and this imagination, is being predicted for the near are distant future, which is a great belief or assumption, for people to have, but what about creating great social, cultural and economical amenties, for our people in this present life time, in which we are living? Do you all not think, that the good deeds which we do today for our people, would be a very good record, to help us all, to go to that great place , Heaven or Zion if they really exist?
I hope you can forgive me in my own imaginative kind of reasoning, I am just a person who is searching for the truth like most of you, and as a result, I am not afraid to ask very serious questions, even if they are considered controversal, by my friends, brothers, sisters, and associates, my interest is to create reasoning topics, so that I can learn from the opinion of others. In my life time, I have heard of various people being described as the Creator, but I was not fortunate enough, to be in some place or the other, and to see the Creator walking on the top of the Sea water, or coming down our of space just walking on thin Air, and say to me or others whon are there, I am the Omnipotent Almighty Creator, do you all have anyb questions for me, so that we could sit and reason, and so that I could ask, very pertinent questions, for the edification of myself, and others. If this is the way the Creator is expected to appear, I do hope that I will live to see him, and be able to ask him pertinent and practical questions, so that all the existing confusions can be abolished.
Again I send many oceans of blessings and self determination to African people everywhere.
ONE BLACK HEART ONE BLACK LOVE.
