INI seh "evry warrior in the battle with confuse noise...and garments rolled in blood...fya shall be with fyah"
INI give thanks for your words...you bring up a point that I would like to address.
personaly sometimes I feel like there is nothing here for me. For evrything that I want to do, there is something to stop me. I can't be myself. There is nothing here for me. I feel life don't make any sense if I'm going to spend my time fighting for what I want all the time. I check the meditation of repatriation to Africa. And I still hear or read about the same calamity there that is present over here. And I see that if its going to get better it will be after I die. So I ask myself why should I live now? Especialy when I feel that I don't deserve to live or suffer this way.
But then a word came to me from an African woman who have been in the midst of the wars and witness the bloodshed of fellow bredrin and sistrens in her hometown in Africa...she said "You are responsible for Your own happiness...No one else"
Then I begun to overstand what happiness is. It stands alone. It doesn't matter what is around it or beside it or what circumstance it is in...it remains what it is. It stands alone in a class by itself. So if u want happiness u have to have a stand alone thinking. There is no room to consider any peoples thoughts, opinions, doubts or anything unlike happiness...u have to be merciless and fierce about it.
So when I take a look around and see what I have to do when I get up evry morning. INI gain the strength to taccle any task. So the fight doesn't feel like a fight but a moment of my exprience of life.
Haile Selassie I, spoke of Unity...was He dreaming?...well dreams aren't real but they're a part of reality...so we live them all the same...naturaly
