It is indeed true, that wisdom is better than weapons of war, reasoning is more edifying and peaceful than Quarells and vexation of spirits. It is important for us as a people to realize the power of words. It has been said that words are wind but blows are unkind, but if each of us do not know how to deal with words, it can hit us so hard internally like a Hurricane or Tornado. It has been said that grievious words stir up anger, but pleasant words turneth away wrath. When we reason it is not about a verbal competion, it is about Iron sharpeneth Iron and minds sharpeneth minds. As I have said before, there are things which each of us know which others among us do not know, since we are each coming from different experience and envirnments. We are therefore here to learn from each other. Each of us is a teacher as well as a student, so we must expect to learn from, and also teach each other at the same time. When we are teaching, we must cause the internal faculties of our students, to rejoice and be receptive, because of the pleasant manner in which we presented the lessons which we teach.
I have not been posting here much these days, because of the contentious Nature which is taking place in the postings, and most of the time we depart from the topic under discussion just to end up into quarrells. There are some practical realities which we must face as African people everywhere, which we will not be able to sweep under the carpet of religion and belief, we must be able to face the true realities of life, and come to the realization, that we have many more rivers of learning to cross.
It has been said, that HIS MAJESTY said, that he shall be replaced by the following generation, can you explain the meaning of that statement for the edification of us all, but especially the following generation.
Again I send many oceans of blessings and self determination to African people everywhere
ONE BLACK HEART ONE BLACK LOVE
